Smilla Salam Alikum Rahmatullah Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah who ala alihi wa sahbihi woman Hala Loma Linda miam founder and foreigner Bhima Alam tena indica Simeon Dubois Lamoni out to becoming an Malayan Power BI Asha, one of Singla touchbar. What do I learn SMA, or Benalla to SuperLumiNova is a headache to know Hublin amulet and Karasuma inika internal hub, or be strictly Sadr USA li Omri Warlock, the Tamil Lisanti of colitis, UK and lucky and many of you are early May Allah reward you with this heat and time and the traffic. And absolutely the verse or the surah actually applies to all of us for
those who struggle for our sake. So Bismillah what we're going to do today is actually this is going to be the theme. As we are going to continue, we're going to group the verses. So when you read the Quran, this is the most important thing what I want you all to learn. So when you read the Quran, every verse is related to the other and sometimes the groups are all or the five 610. Sometimes 20 are related together, then you get a theme from that group, then the question is, so Why did Allah change, for example, to this story, or to that story? Once you learn the themes becomes much easier for you. That's number one. The most important question everyone. And this is ones won't be in the
IRB. I mean, once you learn this, your life will change. You need to ask a lot the following question. Well, you're reading it in Arabic, you're reading in English, it doesn't matter. What is he telling you me?
You know what I mean? Is not what does it mean? And of course I know well, I mean, I'm an Juan musalia. Those who are who have faith. Can we get the sisters on water please? One of the girls? That's okay. So those who believe and do a good deed, okay, that's fine. I know the meaning. But what does it mean for me here? This is how you live the Quran.
That lives the Quran is not you know, the meaning many of you know the meaning. I mean, even if you don't know r&b, you know what the English is saying. But what is it telling me? So we're going to start from the beginning. So you all we covered the theme, the theme of Surah Tarang Kabuto. Again, for a revision for all of us. Once you read it, you need to remember two things. Allah is telling me you are not the only one.
You are not the only one remember this. You're not the only one struggling to be a good Muslim. You're not the only one going through the difficulties. Everyone will. The second question, what does he want from me? Why he's testing me and we're going to come today to this Why is testing as Allah has assessed me. So the first thing sorter uncoupled starts by what you all need to know this because you see it is Le flam mean, they call it to the divided letters, divided letters. anybody in this room doesn't know that divide that the word divided the letters, of course the people who read the RRB you know that, but I'm talking to those who doesn't know Arabic. Do you know what is the
divided letter? Feel free to ask this
is your chance do you know? Everybody know? And how often aka the divided letters is, for example, Surah Al Baqarah the cow, that's very easy. It starts by Elif lamb. I mean, if you write it in English, you're going to say a l, I F, one letter, lamb is l, a, m, and then mean, which is M E. M, what does that we remember the question, what is he telling me? You know, r&b or you don't know how to be? The answer is, I don't know. What is this mean? And the best scholars that you mama Tabari went on it, probably three. Literally, if you resorted Bukhara with the amount of poverty, you're gonna need at least 20 pages about it. So how Allah so you know how deep they go, what I found, I
summarize some for you, just so you all know, the best one I found, and I'm gonna read it to you because it's really interesting. They said the following. Allah subhanho wa taala. Look at the word they use, alert the audience audience, meaning the people who are listening, or the people who are attending you and me, what is he alerting me? Be careful, pay attention to what your law? He's bringing my attention to you that what is early flam mean? Can anybody answer me? These are letters right? If you know Arabi, my name your name is has to me is made of letters. And sometimes these letters are in mining, right? For example, if you say Muhammad meme in that letter, the letter meme
isn't that what is Allah telling me, he is bringing my attention to you to the following. And I'm going to read it because it's really impacted me when I was preparing it. It says, These letters are very familiar to everybody. Try, especially to the Arabs. And they use them to compose any word.
Any words any letter you write long you write small these days, when you send texts, right? Many of the specialty second generation, they use English to sit to send it to you in Arabic, you seen that? Right? And they said, what's the same letter yet? And this is what I want you all to pay attention, when you read it, they cannot compose anything like this divine book. You know why? This is the beauty of because it is not of a man's composition. The author is Allah, I can tell you what this word did to me. We never look at the Quran, say the author is Allah, I never think of it.
But when I open it, and I say, you know, when you write books, and you say the author who's writing it, and you turn the book in the back and see who is this, the author is Allah, remind yourself of, it's gonna change the way when you pick up that book, number one, and then number two is some of you may don't know this, they say some of the scholar says it's the name of the Quran. These divided letters is the name of the Quran Subhanallah third, it's one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Again, these are all opinions, doesn't mean they are right 100% or wrong, but this is what they are saying. Number four, they say this is an oath that Allah has used person.
And anytime you see an oath, one day in sha Allah for Allah give us live will do you a whole series about the oaths in the Quran. Anytime you make an oath, what follows the oath is something very serious. When you get upset, and you want to tell somebody by Allah, I didn't say it, you say by Allah, why you're making an oath, what comes is important. They say this could be also that oath of office pantalla. And the second common, which he had, this is the second commonest reason that these letters only Allah knows the meaning.
So another challenge.
Another challenge, only Allah knows the meaning. The last one Id love that I put it for myself in a big and he says Every book has a secret. On your right when you ask, like some of you may know, chalk law next week, the first book Allah made me right, it's coming out when people ask me what is the secret? I can share it with you? And they said Every book has a secret. And the secret of the Quran is these letters. So the author is Allah. The he knows and it's absolutely a big challenge. Nobody, nobody have tried and many people have tried to write like a Quran nobody was able to do. So that's number one. Second is we went a lot about it last week. I'm just gonna go through it. A
rhetorical question. A rhetorical question. Has she been Natsu? Are you trochu are your only one and now hula, you've done your translation. Do you think you will be left alone? And this is to every one of us
everybody who's listening to me online? Do you think I will be left to say I'm a believer? And I'm not gonna get tested?
What what do I write in my note? If you are a person who take short notes, what will you write?
I want somebody to tell me, if I was writing this, I'm gonna say, learn, you will be tested.
So once the test comes in, I'm not gonna say, Why me? What's happened, right? No, you all can hear me 100. And then Allah subhanaw taala says the following.
The test is not something new. And I will share with you the biggest test somebody can can can can have that this question, or this principle is actually repeated in the Quran.
And Allah says, How many of you want to go to Ghana? I've asked you so many times this I think he was like You memorized it. Right? Anybody asked me this? I don't do one. I do too. Right? And Allah says, you want to go to Ghana? Yes. Everybody. Do you think you will go to join and you will not be tested?
That's his, this is not my word. I'm hasip. Tool and tutorial agenda. This isn't so rotten. Bacara. Right. And this is actually verse 214. At the end of Surah Al Baqarah. Do you think you will be you want to go to Jana, and you will not be now the test. You will be tested very hard, very, very hard, that you know, the earthquake we live in earthquake, you will feel the earth under you is actually being shaken.
And this happened to Roswell in salatu. Salam and to the Sahaba that they asked your Salah when are we one of this is going to be done. Madonna's for law, when is the victory of Allah is coming and he said worldly the victory of Allah is soon memorize this pad. Write the note you can't hear me right I think this is not working. That's how I'm feeling. Can Can you get me one of these? Yeah, this is I think the battery or something? Bismillah
Do you think you will be left to say alone and you're not testing? This is a test? Absolutely. Well Lila the Allah Who and I said his name. Any note can give me the wonder the way Yeah. Do you think you anytime you say something to Allah subhanaw taala he will test you on the spot. Sometimes I taught and I didn't even leave the door. And I'm tested.
Where is the smart person?
Let's say Bismillah. Bismillah? No. Can you hear me? Yes better. There's a killer. Okay. And let's give this just in case.
Let's see. So you can hear me humble. Okay.
So the first thing I'm going to say when I opened the Quran, the author is Allah he's testing me by saying not you don't know anything you don't know everything. Whether I am a half EULA, whether I know how to be very well without my Quran teacher whether I'm I'm a teacher, I'm a scholar, I'm whatever. You don't know. Tell me what is elfland me? What is going to do to me remember what the Quran tells you? Allah is telling me what you're talking to me Allah, what do you want me to learn? You don't know much. Humble yourself.
Humble yourself. Wherever you know, Allah who is more whatever, you know, there's so many people who knows more than you will be tested. Why are Allah does the question. So there's a couple of words here I want to share with you is
who say I'm a believer in this room.
Come on. Yeah. Talk to Yourself quarterback while you're asking. Perfect. What is Iman? Don't tell me the Athena answer. What does it mean? Again? What is Allah saying to me when he says you're a believer?
You're a believer. believer means the following. And some of them I actually wrote because it's beautiful. Number one, it's not a word. You say.
It's not only a word you say.
Number two, it's a reality. A reality. That means it needs duties. Can I ask all the children to leave? Please, please, because you really there's a lot of distractions here. And this is the words of Allah. We really have to respect you know how I always remind myself before anyone, if you have a child with you, may Allah reward you. Can we all go upstairs with the children Baraka Luffy? May Allah reward you? And please forgive me, it's just for the benefit of everybody. And we have a lot of people online hamdulillah
So number one, it's not a word, you say it. It's a word, but the word has meanings. Number two, it brings, it's an honor. Anytime Allah honors you with something that comes with it. Responsibility, duties, you get accepted to the best school. This brings with it responsibility, you become a mother brings with it a responsibility. You get promoted at work duniya take dunya you get promoted to the highest level in your company brings with it a lot of responsibilities. So it's not a word. It's an honor. And it's a duty for it will carry with it requirements. What is the requirement, I'm a believer?
I'll come to you in a second. And it will bring you the try this in capital letter. Welcome to struggle.
Welcome to struggle. The struggle is not always what you think, externally. I'll share it with you.
The biggest struggle you know what, it's me.
Walla, Netanyahu, the biggest struggle is inside doing. It's not too outside because you reach a point. And some of you probably use this word I used a lot Been there done that. Right? Oh, she did this or she. But then the one inside keeps nagging and changing. So the biggest one is when you are inside? And now who? And again, all we are believer am and that's what Allah said, Who are the one who are supposed to carry the trust? Meaning question to me, when I'm reading Avenue, do I carry the trust?
Who can say yes, I'm a believer, I carry the trust.
Nobody's raising their hand. You're thinking that's okay. What is this trust?
This is a good one. Don't be scared. When Allah said to me, you're a believer. That means I worth it.
When I worth it, when Allah chose you and me, which instead of so many people around you, that doesn't make you arrogance, by the way, it just you have to sit down and say, Your Allah, you chose me from all these people around me. And I didn't do it, you gave it to me to become a believer. Right? What awards you gave me, that means I worth it. That means I have to be up to it. So that's number one. Number two, if Allah God make me a believer, and he did, that means I can do it.
Whatever the belief brings with it, I can do it. You know that? Right? When I when I always say to the woman when she's in labor, I said Allah brought you in labor law makes you in labor, labor is not something easy, then you can do it.
Allah made you a mother, then you can do it. He didn't make everybody a mother. Because he knows who can do it and not. So when he made you and me a believer, we can do it. Say this to yourself, especially you. Because you're what you see. So you have so much tests and challenges way more than many of us, unless you're really in this world outside. So that's number two or three. Now. That's the one that's going to be tough.
When Allah made me a believer, that means I must put the belief, above my comfort, above my liking, above what I want, above everything else.
And this is what we
struggle with. This is this is why I told you the biggest struggle, and I don't want anyone to think of anybody else. Just think of yourself. When I was reading this yesterday, literally. I was like, You know what, let me this is a time for what we call self reflection. Look inside you and say he made me a believer. That means Iman faith has to be above my comfort. That's why I need to get our forfeiture. That means it is above what I like. That's why I need to fast Ramadan. I'm taking the basics with you. But again, hamdulillah many of you pass that level hamdulillah and some majority or some of us are still struggling. So that's number two. Iman, has she been Latina, or has she been
Latina, although I'm in faith.
Now fitna, and I'm going to stress on this one today fits into the origin of it. It's fit and a H as anybody knows, where is it? What's the origin of this word?
You all will know which ones I saved. You know when you go and buy gold.
Right, especially if you're in the Arab world or you are in in in the 40
In subcontinent you by 24, or 22, or 21, or 18 or 14, what does that mean?
Purity of the gold, you all know that, how does the gold become pure
they put it in the fire,
melt. And when the when the gold it's when they get it from the mines, they put it in the fire when it melts, all the impurity melt, but the gold stays. That's why it's called gold. And Allah use the same word.
The fitna is what comes to me like the fire comes to the gold. The it removes the impurity should remove the impurity I come out, according to how I responded to the fire 1418 2122 24 2040 of pure
Are you all with me? And this is a my life and yours. And I am not the only one.
Or everybody before us, was tested.
Everybody before us was tested. It's a long established rule. And what are these tests?
And it is all in the Surah not in sha Allah after today, when you go and read the surah you're gonna say Ah, now I know why Allah mentioned this. What is the number one test we have a life other than us.
Subhanallah if you talk to the reverse, they tell you what family struggle you talked to second generation who born and raised here, they tell you the test is parents who were not born and raised here they don't know what we are going through. You talk to a married woman says that that test is the my husband's family, you talk to their husband tells you my wife is the problem or the test family and the most painful test comes from
the people who are closest to you.
Family and I once I tell you that those then you're going to know why Allah mentioned this in the verse number six, I'll come to it, but I just want you to really start paying attention. So you have number one family after the family is the people we love friends, somebody you want to get married to somebody you felt for he or she this is for both of us right husband wife, children,
parents are tested by their children and the children are tested by their parents or loved ones. Now I want each one of you in our note right what is your test?
What is your test as a person
loved ones family next write me
this life, the material part of the life because human beings are also part of life, but the material part.
The material part, some people have them all. Some people have one. Some people have all but one is the issue. The rest is not the issue.
So here you go, what test you are having. Again, don't think of anybody else. And which one if you have five of them, which one is number one I need to focus on.
Okay, now the family right?
Oh, I love this one another test.
Fire that will pure me and I'm gonna read this because I thought of all the young specially the youth who are in colleges, and when they are in non Islamic school says the following to feel you are alone
in a strange environment
that I'm going to read it because I loved it actually see the believer looks around and finds everything and everyone swimming, swimming and sweeping in the dunya in Allah His blessings, and he is not or she is not simply because
they believe and they obey Allah. As that sounds familiar?
That That sounds familiar. Right? Everybody go on Friday. If you're in college, you know what they do on Friday, and you are a believer and you stay in that room alone.
And how difficult is this? Some of you may have not felt this. But if you have worked when you're young with non Muslims, literally, you're going this direction. Everybody else is going that direction. Add to it everybody make fun of you
and how strong you have to be the next one
that this is absolutely applies to us says communities and countries were evil and vice is widespread.
Yet the progressive society are those who don't believe in Allah.
Don't you say look at look at the Muslim country and look at us here. And they don't believe in Allah and they have all the dunya that's a test for me. That will shake my
I want to hear it. Faith. Because I don't see Jana. I don't we are human beings we wanted right away. We want especially in this day and age, we want the gratification immediately. I want to give you something you I want to I'm waiting to tell you to tell me thank you Jackie Lau Hi, here I am going against everybody, families a test. Life is a test study is a test practice. Mydin is a test. And I don't see the gratification from Allah, I have really to believe. But do you think you will be loved to say I believe without being tested? Do we all look at tests very different, tried. And look at this test. Subhanallah the next one amazing there. There is one test that is the heart of Tai Chi
shared it with you come from within? Desire, enjoyment, pleasure, ego.
The to me, this is the hardest one. And all of us has it. Everybody number one is me. We all have ego. Don't tell me I don't we do. We have ego. We don't want to be wrong. We want people to praise us, right? We get upset when someone doesn't. We get upset when our children don't listen to us. We get upset when our friends don't love us as much as they love the other this is all ego.
So what is the solution?
This is why he said well look at Fontana, lithium, and probably this is number three, but Allah Manola dia Sadako or elemental qldb The way I respond
the way I respond, I want you to know three things. Number one, literally write this down, Allah will never let you down.
But when is the victory coming is according to his knowledge and wisdom. Keep that faith inside you keep this power inside you. He will never let you down.
Sometimes he wants sometimes you wonder, like when the Sahaba says when is the victory of Allah is coming. You're gonna say Allah keeps this I say to myself, he wants me he wants to hear my voice. He wants to keep listening to me, begging me and keeping me strong. So Allah number one, have this faith that Allah will never let you down to this dunya how long we will live. You all heard about what happened today in Texas. If you haven't heard, it's a tragedy to family, four of them were killed. They don't know who did what and whatever. Subhanallah everybody will die. This was a 12 Because I have six or 12 and a husband and a wife.
We're all going to die. And that's why the next verse, look at the next verse. And He said mankind or God or Allah, the natural law here at whomsoever loves once hope to meet Allah. That day is coming. Now, why is this? After all this? If you think about dunya, you're getting tested. Again, any of the tests we shared. And you think about this time, it's very difficult. If I think about why this is happening to me, look at my family. Look at my friend isn't that it's difficult, versus if I don't see anything around me and I just think about my Acura and not accurate punishment and hellfire. I am meeting him.
I'm seeing him because there's a hadith of Roswaal the salatu salam, it's both actually in Bukhari and Muslim. He said, whomsoever, love to meet Allah, Allah loves to meet him or her.
So when you are going through this difficulty, again, any difficulty and this is why Surah uncoupled, they say is the surah that will strengthen your faith.
And this the sooner that you need it, when you are going through difficulties.
When can I or God or Allah, whosoever loves to meet Allah?
That day is coming. Well, who was Samia or Ali? Now pay attention to how Allah ends, the verses. That's another thing you have to learn when you read the Quran. He said whomsoever loves to meet Allah. The meeting is coming. And he is all hearing all
not questioning is Allah wisdom How do biller but you can say Allah why did you use this word? Why did you use this name? Why didn't you say until as user Hakeem Why didn't you say your almighty always? Who can tell me
who can tell me this is really helps you in understanding the Quran? Yes.
I can can you speak
he's hearing his hearing what people are saying to his ear hearing. You're the sound of your tears. He's seen his hearing the laminating and the night when you are saying your wall I can't do this anymore. Your alarm please make it easy. His hearing will allow him he knows what you're going through. He allowed it. He knows how you will react. He knows where you will end up. There is
a very beautiful way of learning the last the names how Allah ends a verse and there was just the verse is not coming to my mind shall Allah will bring it they were praying in Jamal, the you read this in the tafsir about the verse and then the
ah was served from the Rila or Saudi Costa Rica to for kapow idea Houma Allah. This is a source will mount either. When Allah subhanaw taala says those who the thief Shira, he cut their hand. They I end up with Aziz will Hakeem.
The Imam Rajat Hoffer Rahim
somebody jumped in the solder.
And he said no, as he's on hacking.
They asked him afterwards, oh, you're half of the man is Arabi. bedwin doesn't even know how to read and write. And he said it doesn't fit
Subhan Allah when you know the Quran doesn't fit. He's talking about punishment. He's not going to put off on Rahim. So when you hear men Jahad mankind God God, God Allah you want to meet Allah. How many of you says make dua for herself says your Allah Allah Azza honeymooner novelry logical carrying your Allah don't deprive me from the moment of seeing you there.
How many times you make dua make me me that to make me meet this who made me make this person who that person bring my son bring my daughter or my friend, but you make Doha Allah make me see you. Don't deprive me. That's what he said you want to meet Allah, it's coming. And Roswaal you saw to Salam said whomsoever wants to meet Allah, Allah who loves to eat.
So when that the tough things comes in, again, internal or external, just just a second, think of the akhira for a second, everything becomes what
trivial, easier Exactly. becomes smaller. You know how we, we I mean, we look at the problem and we think we are the only person who has this problem. It becomes so big, why especially these days when I start doing the counseling, or the office hours with the sisters everybody brings their issues. It is not small. I'm not bitter belittling it out to biller but I always tell them you know what, just think a minute about the ACA What is this for the akhira becomes easier. That's why he put it there. You want to meet Allah it is going to come
keep going as we say. Woman Tjahaja for in nama Yuja headed enough see, does the next one. You struggle. You're gonna go through this test. You are being burned as the gold is being burned? Because he wants to bring the best in me.
Is that for me or for him?
That's for me. That's what he's saying. Woman Jahad is number six woman Jada fitting them IUGR had enough say. And Allah says manager had no manager had enough see in Allaha the honeymoon and Alamy he used one of His Names. When you read the Quran, whether the end the beginning or in the middle. Pay attention to the names he use. His name's Lohani Yun annual Alamy ani the usual translation is rich. No, not with Allah subhanaw taala or Rani. He doesn't need you. He doesn't need me. He doesn't need my salah. He doesn't need my hijab. He doesn't need any of the things I'm done. I'm doing wakeup time George was struggle on the only one in this place doing this while everybody else is
doing different. It's for me.
You know when you study
when you study exams,
who's going to win at the end?
Is the teacher who gave you the exam
that's how you look at it, the teacher Allah is Exalted. The teacher is giving you the pages of the exam, right? Probably she wrote it or he wrote it. Allah is Exalted, but who allowed the test? Is Allah subhanaw taala. But when you write the test and you pass the test, who's going to get the benefit?
In Alana, honey are Allah Allah, Allah doesn't need you.
Now look at the next ones now. Hamdulillah I think you're all with me now. Well, Linda,
seven, eight and nine and shortline next time I'm going to ask the ICI to put the verses here so it will be easier also for that's why I said bring your Quran with you. Seven and eight and nine combine them together. What is Allah see? Well, Athena Amman, Anwar Amarillo, Saudi Hertie and Okay, Fiona and Jose team, all energean nomads, Rohan Asana lady Kenya among those who does believe all of us add to it. I'm sorry hat you have to do good deed deeds solid hat. And what did he say here specifically? Nothing about Jana. Nothing about meeting Allah the new Kofi Rana and whom say it him, we can remove all their
Pay attention again? Why there's a lot of Why's the why you're not questioning is Allah wisdom. The why is what?
What are you telling me? What do I need to understand? Okay, well, Athena Amman, Huami Lusardi Hardy, those who believe and do a good deed, then you can run and home say it. We're gonna remove all their sins. What did I read before that?
You're a believer. You're gonna be tested? Can I fail the test? Can I fail the test? A good possibility. Is that a sin?
Is that a sin? Yes. If I fail the test, if Allah for example, is said you need to when somebody attack you write you need to be patient. And I couldn't I failed. I'm a human. Is that a sin? So what do I do?
He's telling me, You struggled, you failed. Don't worry. You're a believer. Do a good deed. I'll remove it.
And because you struggled, I will give you even better. When an exam no axe analogy can Jamelia. I woke up in the morning. This is what I tell you. Every verse, what does it tell me what it's telling you? I woke up this morning. Okay, I didn't wake up for Fudger
Is that a sin?
I struggled, guilt feeling? Why didn't I wake up? Why did you sleep late, all this struggle in you? And then I decided I'm going to make it up. I'm going to go do what do I am going to do to external catalyst pantalla. Right. So I believe I did a good deed
that sin removed and these two cards and Allah let's say you did it very quickly, and it's not the best, but you did it. Allah who will reward me the reward not of these two cards, the quick one, he'll reward me with the best ever took what you've done in your life.
You know, this, this this concept is repeated in the Quran. We will reward them with the best they have done, not what you did right now. But what does he want from me? Believe Alhamdulillah I have it.
Do good deeds. Don't give up. Don't give up every bad deed I do. And we all do. Follow it by a good deed immediately. And don't belittle any good deed doesn't have to be you're going to stand up in the night and you're going to do a whole night pm. No.
Are you all with me now? Now look at the next verse and the next verse.
Or sinal insanity holiday house now completely different. We have enjoined on the human being in San BYD treat your parents with excellence. What is this has to do?
Wayne Jha exactly when Jada and if they will say my word jihad. See how many times the word jihad struggle not fighting. There's no fighting here.

Because one of the biggest test parents, are you all hearing me on my right side? Right? The biggest test youth goes through. I wouldn't say the biggest but one of the biggest is that parents don't understand them.
doesn't mean they're speaking different language. Even if they speak the same language. They just don't get it. They don't feel because they did not I and you did not grow up in this country. So I don't know. But I came to know when I started working. When I started studying here Yahama what do they go through?
Now this verse they say it was revealed because of Saddam interview of us, are you already sad interview of course. Right. He was in Makkah,
the only child.
Very well known, very loved mother, only that baby.
He loves her. And she loves him. Imagine only one child. He became a Muslim. She went crazy. Read it. It's beautiful stone. She went crazy.
And he really loves her. Because she How did she tested him.
She puts him in the fire. Remember, the goal is to always remember the gold and she puts him in that test. She said I am not going to eat or drink and you will see me dying till you get back out of this craziness of yours.
You looked at her and set your alarm Allah forgive me and you Nobody said this to me. And you know, mother came to you and says, you stop praying or otherwise I'd kill myself. She's he said, Wallah. Hear me. By Allah mom. You know how much I love you.
If you had 100 souls, and I see each one of them leaving. He saw her actually three days she didn't eat and drink. So she literally was fainting.
Look at the faith. And he said one line, if I see 100 times what I am seeing, I am not going to change.
Still, Allah told him three to one,
or saw him laughing duniya model three them one.
If they treat you bad is not an excuse that we treat them bad. This is only for two parents, by the way. Everybody else if they treat you bad, you have the option of responding the same way except parents.
And then the next verse, Now you all with me? Handle it. Now you're connecting the word, the surah. What is the next verse who can read it for me?
Well, Lavina Armando AGang and those who believe what Amira saw the heart. Now your friend now is very different than North Korean no facade. And it's all those of you know, r&b, it is all Allah use all the letters of emphasis.
You will be entered with the righteous.
Before, remember, I told you two verses saying, believe in and do a good deed, believe in a real good deed. One says I'll remove all your sins, and I'll reward you better. I'll reward you the level of the best deed you've done fine, then parents then come the same. I'm gonna what? I'm sorry, you will be entered with the righteous people. Why?
Why there is a change.
Since I need to hear it, I want you to feel it.
I can't hear you.
he passed the test. He did not change.
He did not compromise. This is one of this sort of uncouple just telling him again, no one of us. A parent put a gun in her head or his head and says, You Stop this craziness of yours or I'll kill myself when you lie. You know why?
Why? Because he knows I can't take it.
He knows you can take it. He knows we can take it but he knew Satan Assad can do it. Now you clearly follow who Nelson it allows.
And this is the second or third or fourth thing you say when a test comes to you.
If it happened
To me, that means I can take it.
He didn't test you with the same test, I am tested. He didn't test you the same test you are tested, because you know he can you can take it, she cannot.
Sometimes when the patients comes to me and you know how they feel when there is no children, Muslim patients, of course, and I said, Maybe he knows you're not going to be being a mother or your biggest test, so he saved you.
We don't look at these things this way. Well, ADINA, Armand Huami, Rosada had done with Finland know, it's a promise and Tokyo, he used Clamato cute when only to kid to
tools in the Arabic language to emphasize Don't you have a single doubt that when you go through a test, this one was parents and you will pass the test, that Allah will not reward you. I may not see it.
Most of us may not see it in this life.
The test is again, here is parents, but this could be any member of the family, children to parents, parents to children, again, spouses, you just say this thing to yourself.
And this is the board talking to yourself. What do you want me to do?
Tell me show me when you are making me go through this. And I have two options. Three if I am going to fail. Let's say I really want to succeed and I'm sure everybody if I put the akhirah I'm going to put meeting Allah I want to succeed I have two options. Either I'm going to do good.
Or I'm going to do Axcelis
give you an example a test. Let's say a spouse and and a wife, a husband and a wife. Both one of them, right? They you really tested you
at that point, if I am leaving soar to Lanka boot, retaliation way more than what they did is not going to be in my vocabulary, right? I have to, they said this word, I'm going to say exactly the same word. That's fear. That's fear. That's fear.
But if I want to be in Atlanta who facade ahead, I want to be with those righteous. I want to be and I want you to know this verse. It's in surah. To Jonas De La Vina Asana first now was Jada those who treat respond with excellence, they will get an accurate excellent and extra and scholars agree the extra is seeing almost pantile
So when Latina and Manu wa Muto Solly had done the training the whole facade, hey, I want to be righteous, I want to be rewarded as top righteous, top notch, respond in a better way.
So whenever you are tested, take a breath, move back and say to yourself, talk to him. What do you want me to do?
Show me and I'll do it will law he if you do this, I'll show you.
He'll bring it to you on piece on our plate. It's gonna start making you think differently.
The last test in this group Wamena Nassima. Your all your airmen again words, some people say we believe white woman Nassima your Kulu Amana
Billahi we believe once the test from Allah comes in,
what is going to say? Can I ask the ladies upstairs please? Can I ask the ladies please if you cannot, can you please go to the next room? May Allah reward you can hear me please forgive me this is online. But I think I have to because we all deserve to be listened to and learn. So may Allah reward you ladies woman a nasty Makoto Amma Nabila
from among the people may Allah not make you and and me we say we believe now, for either odf Allah if he or she will get hurted because they are a believer.
Because you are a believer, you walk in the street, you're an obvious Muslim and someone gives you the look or somebody say a word. Or you don't get promoted at work, because you are different. Right? I mean, I've listened I heard this one time, or somebody said to a Muslim woman. You're Excellent. She was going for a test next day. Says you're excellent. You should pass. But if you didn't pass because you look different.
period. They were training her.
And guess what happened next day?
Of course she passed.
But in case you get hurt, because you are a believer not because other things are because of dunya because who you are, because you're a believer, then I have, then I become to Choice two. There's two things going to happen to me. Either I'm going to stay strong, or I am going to
fail. Where is the jihadi? What is the test here?
Where is the test here? This is again, another test. The test is I'm an obvious believer. You're the only one in that gathering. When Margaret time comes in. You're the only one who get up.
Have you been in the such circumstances? You're the only one and you say it's Margaret time nobody moved? Let alone they make fun of you?
Who the eff Allah and the only one how do I feel?
Then Allah says when you go through this test, if I fail, or if I succeed, and Allah said here the second time for a lemon Hola, hola, Dina, and without them and then when our love for sure we'll know the real believer from the hypocrites.
So when it comes to the belief in Allah and I feel then this is I really need to be aware.
