Smith loves Mila are from LA salatu salam ala Rasulillah ala alihi wa sahbihi woman Hala La Molina my info now on Tanya Bhima alum Tina in a custom young Madiba dua la manera how to become an MLA Amphawa Albula SHA one FC letter schwa la you smart urban Allah to clue when a bad is headed to now Hublin AMOLED Ankara Inaka internal hub will be shortly Sodre us li Maria locket, Emily Sani of Cabo poli Shala today we will be finishing Sora to Lanka boot. Next week, we can have a break and then the week after and then I'll tell you which Surah Inshallah, As you're all aware, we had a very disturbing day Subhanallah today in May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for all of us feeling
helpless. Sometimes we feel useless, and sometimes we feel there is no hope. And there is always hope and Allah subhanaw taala never give up the hope and Allah subhanaw taala I mean, I'm getting very disturbing questions, because some people really either a person who's how long she said I couldn't work today I feel we are used doing nothing. I think there is no more. Never ever let this come to you. Because that's how I'm shaitan it's very disturbing. It's very annoying. It's very sad. Um, there's no words actually at one point, you feel like the words are useless. But, um, before I start an amazing how Allah subhanho wa Taala planted that we are ending with Saudi Aramco, because
the end of Saudi Aramco was exactly what we need. Exactly what I knew need today is the end of it. So basically,
the most important thing, and I'm gonna say it now and I'm gonna say it again, in the afternoon, after I shall we will have the youth programs or law.
This is not the time to despair. This is not the time to lose hope. This is not the time to say what I am doing. There's a lot we can do. A lot we can do for sure. The result, the result is not in my hand in yours. And when it is going to happen. I have no idea. But I have no doubt. Allah will give us victory. That's how we all have to do. Everybody, young and old. We have to have this faith in your teens is one of the questions I got today. How can you stay strong and these days, I said, what the other day I shouldn't be strong.
This is the day where I need to be very strong. This is the day where I need to be absolutely steadfast. This is the day where all my faith, everything I learned everything I taught, I need to use it. What is the point that if we are just learning and coming to classes, and then the moment Allah test us, and this is a big test for us, let's along them, right. Has he been NASA? What did we learn for the last eight weeks? Or has she been nurse? Who are you Turaco a Apolo Iman, now hula, you've done all this, people think they will be left to say we believe and they will not be tested. This is a test. This is for you. And for me. And of course the people of Gaza and everybody.
Anyone has a maroon van from the woman because that's where the car is making the noise. So if it is your car, please go ahead and take care of it. There's a Kamala who.
So basically, again, stay strong. Stay connected to Allah. Could be my son. Could be our sins, a lot of stick for a lot of Salah and maybe Alayhi Salatu was Salam, a lot of dua, sincere, sincere dua, and don't you ever give up? Don't you give ever give up whatever you're seeing? It's very disturbing. I mean, if you're following the social media, it's extremely disturbing, please to say, but Allah subhanaw taala as I said on a Friday and I will say it again today. Allah subhanaw taala is seeing this allowing this there is a hikma in it, I may not see it. I don't know what because I don't know what is beyond Allah planning. But again, as Muslims what Allah wants from me and you
stay steadfast, obey Allah subhanaw taala. Do the minimum, which was the Roswaal in Salatu Salam is Mara Amin, c'mon, Koran, whomsoever, see, some something that is rejected and accepted by a lot changed by your hand. We can't change it by your tongue. Yes, you can. But you have to be a quote and careful and
use your words carefully. Not emotionally. If you have emotions, keep it when you speak, especially when you write. I mean, a lot of people are sending me videos posted and I was like, No, this is too emotional. When you have too much emotion. I'm not talking about a mother losing her child. And I'm talking about people commenting if there's too much emotion, you lose it. You have to present your emotion but in an non emotional way, in a rational way. And the last but not the least, which majority of us here is at least you don't be numb and you rejected in your heart.
You will never accepted you never say
Well, I'm here. Never because then I did not
To fulfill the least that the last one is salatu salam wanted me and I'm seeing it. I'm hearing it. Don't you ever let shaitan do this tea is not my business. It is my business. It's an injustice. I just before I came, I had this discussion with a non Muslim friend of mine. And that's exactly what you're saying. We are hopeless were useless. It's injustice. When we the only thing she's a very practicing Christian. She said the only thing we can do is ask the one that the only one who can change it. So all of us
now let's go to Surah Tarang Caboose, it's the last verses and I chose these last words before these last verses. There was a conversation between Rasul Allah and salatu salam, and the Mushrikeen the kuffaar and Allah Subhana Allah says we're inside the home, Man Hello, customer work you will arroba not want to insult a man halacha salah or Bossa Horsham. So we'll come out the Quran Allah Fandango for call this is, again, this is nothing related to what we are going through. But this is a common question or Swati. Salatu Salam asked. And Allah asked me to ask because this is a huge, this is a proof against those who say Allah doesn't exist. Or they say things and they contradict themselves
because look at what Allah saying, Well, I insulted him, you ask them who created they have been in the earth, what they will say, at that time they have put it was a hora shamsur will come and facilitate it and made the moon and made the sun subservient to me and you, they will say Allah,
to be honest, who they are better than people these days. Because some people these days what do they say? Mother Nature? They do by themselves though the Mushrikeen at that time they they acknowledge there is Allah
and then Allah is asking and this is they call it a rhetorical question very common concept. In the Quran where Allah asks a question there is no answer for now yo for coin, how can they be pushed away from the reality from worshiping Allah subhanho wa taala. If I want to apply you today, I will say the following if I ask you is Allahu Rahim. What are you going to tell me?
Absolutely. If I asked you Allah is Hakeem, Allah is wise. What are you going to tell me? For and now you're fickle? How can you nothing otherwise, if you again anytime you read the Quran, you have to apply it here on your life anytime. I mean, not today just happen to be what we are going through. Then don't forget now you have a con you say to yourself, how can I despair? How can I despair will be Allah? How can I feel hopeless and my Lord is Allah, it gives you power. And the second question, no, and then Allah saying this, Allah who you have total risk Halima Aisha, where are they are in Allah be equally che in Annie and then Allah is responding to people whether you
have money or you don't have money, there is a reason why he's saying this. In case you wonder Why did Allah Now suddenly talked about you have sort of us He spread his sustenance or he give it to you and He gave it to you and doesn't give it to somebody else? There is a reason it's coming in the tool, Ayat afterward. This is a fact. You and me as Muslims, we have to not only believe not only acknowledge again have serenity, you know in the Quran, there is Eliakim serenity. You know that right? There is how cool your pain and there is.
I ngulia Cane, right? How cool your cane you know, it's true. It's you know, it's true. But you know, you are but let's say somebody outside, right saying to somebody outside is there is a Tuesday program. That person says yes, but you are I know your pain. You're seeing it. Do you see the difference? I know your pain is when you see it. For sure. certainty. And Allah here is saying Allahu yofoto risk our Lima Yasha oyakodon I see that Allah subhanaw taala give some people more than the others in many ways. More money, more children, more status, more knowledge more Quran more.
No, wait. The answer is in the iron in Allah equally Shane? He knows.
He knows this. Sometimes we have to answer in a way that I don't know. Allah knows that increase my
Eman exactly. I don't have to know everything. In fact, I don't know everything. Right. The question I had been asking myself since morning, why I am living here and in comfort, the beautiful weather, the beautiful masjid, right, healthy and hamdulillah and everything and why the people there are having what you have what
As you've seen today why
in Allah have equally che in Allah, Allah news, there is certain questions we need to stop at it. And I say for what to unwritten Allah, I submit all my affairs to Allah subhanho wa Taala the next question which we see it every day and if you ask them, Who sent the rain from the sky, and gave life to Earth member the moutier after it was lifeless layer coluna Allah, they will say again Allah. Now look at read it here, look at how Allah and did this I
could Al Hamdulillah
say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah and the Quran is repeated not only in that Fatiha in the middle of the sewers, and at the end of the sorrows here is almost at the end. And hamdulillah for what?
Who can answer? Why did Allah say Hamdulillah?
But why in this verse? Of course everything is from Allah.
This is not about Muslims letting Sal Tommy's talking about the kuffaar is not talking about to me. When you answer I'm talking about the verse itself. The verse says, well inside Tom, if you ask them ask who?
Just a second, ask Who? The disbelievers let you sell to whom you ask them and he did. Magna Zilla Muna sama Eman who would who sent the rain and the earth you see it lifeless. You see it in the winter and then in the spring, life back layer Kowloon Allah, they say Allah, Quran hamdulillah for what? Alhamdulillah?
just wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Because I don't want you just choose don't to answer if you do not know the answer.
Don't guess with the Quran,
I really mean it because if you guess with the Quran, you may make a major mistake. And I know you don't mean it, you have to be very careful. Alhamdulillah there is many meanings. If you read the tafsir you will know it
Alhamdulillah they acknowledge there is Allah
Alhamdulillah There is Allah that sends the rain.
And you know what, the best part? The Hamdulillah he did not rush in punishment.
He doesn't rush in punishment. How many times if you disobey Allah, how many times and he doesn't punish?
Right. Alhamdulillah and then he says, Bill Accardo home layout pillow, majority don't comprehend this reality.
Majority of us don't comprehend the reality that when I say Alhamdulillah there are so many things outside me as a person and when you are on it, when you ask me, how are your cell? hamdulillah thinking of me, right? Hamdulillah you know, things went? Well. This is just a little bit here. Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. Now I say personally I say Alhamdulillah Rubia? Who Allah
Alhamdulillah I know Allah will never treat me in Injustice Alhamdulillah Allah is giving me everything, giving us everything not personally. But then he says well, a third of whom lie Aquino. The majority of them don't comprehend. comprehend what
this is. This is how you read the Quran. When you say lie Archelon they do not comprehend you're going to say comprehend what
you're saying. Hamdulillah handla For what? Don't answer general answer in the context of the slew of the worse, then you're putting the worse and you think of yourself at Thirumalai Archelon. What they don't comprehend this reality.
that's Alhamdulillah Allah sent during that ramble, Allah created the heavens and the earth, And Alhamdulillah Allah subs made the moon and the sun subservient to you and me Alhamdulillah and then I bring it to myself and I say Alhamdulillah Allah taught me this, because if you ask me, for anybody outside asked me who created the heavens and the earth, I'm gonna say, hola. I need to say Alhamdulillah because not everybody will say this. Now look at this is one of the there's two or three landmark verses and sorta Lanka Bucha. And this is one of them the next one, and how much I need this verse today. Allah described the dunya and akhira and Allah describe dunya in the Quran in
a lot of details in I may share a couple of them with you. But let's look at this one mahadi He'll hire to do
Ma Ma. For those of you who know our OB Ma is adept enough here to fiddle
When you say nothing, nothing this life nothing if you translate, but
now look at the life. Look at this life that we disobey Allah for fighting each other for right focus on all my energy from morning to evening about it, all my planning about it through right when I had the hill higher to dunya now the creator of this life is telling you the reality.
When you buy anything, when you buy the phone, you buy a computer you buy any appliances or gadgets, what is the first thing you do? You go and read the manual because you don't know what it is, especially if it's new, that just came out on the market. Now the creator of this life, and the creator of the afterlife is telling you and me. Don't be fooled.
Literally Don't be foolish, don't act foolish, because this life nothing but and look at the bottom here. And he put low while I am amusement and play.
And then in the Quran it comes sometimes in the opposite, but in the long Kabuto Allah Who amusement and play who can tell me what is the difference?
What is difference between amusement and play?
So many times you've read this
because it's sort of reading in the Quran is just the sequence differ label No, Allahu Allahu Allah. La who is amusement and live is a play anything, amusement is a distraction.
And Lab is a waste of time.
In general, there's so many other things. I'm just giving you an idea.
Live is a waste of time. Let's go and play.
And amusement is a distraction
this life and that's what the creator of this life is saying to you and me. This life is nothing ma naffaa Nothing but
waste of time distraction
taking you away from the real focus.
Yes. What is the real focus your be?
The next words. We're in a Durrell, Hirata Lehi and Haiwan Canyon and the hereafter. The hereafter is the real life if they only know
in case you wonder again, we're going to bring it back again to where we are living, especially today. You really wonder what you have been seeing on the TV and you have heard the people, right? Of husband say things I don't know how can they say these things? Because that's what it is.
The focus is not this life.
The focus is not on this life. I will see you in January if you have seen this. The father says to his children, the physician who saw four of his children in the hospital, they forward dead and he said I'll see you in Jannah
that's the focus.
Woman higher to dunya it's an amusement and play when you when you feel it and when you look at dunya and this way you will not put all your energy on something that is waste of time. And that's a distraction and you're not putting your any of your energy on the real life a higher one is not the animal because that's another name fell out in the Arabic Al Hasan is the real life
we're in a Dora in look at Look how he's M is using subpoena words or tools of emphasis. We're in the heart of Turkey it's an emphasis and he didn't say it accuracy a double error. This is another things you have to pay attention when read the Quran. Allah sometimes call it only akhira right? But this one says Dowdell akhira a dar is what the house this is the common words in the Arabic language for our houses at dar and especially in certain parts of the world. They call it Yanni dharana. Dar the house, your final house, a dowel after the coming house, if you want to use it if you didn't know this means the other life you're going to say my other my real home
is there. The real life is there. And what Allah has saying how did he ended?
One Have you read it?
If they only know why did he say if they only know
because we don't know
We know what we don't know.
I know but my hand, my daily life, I don't know, I don't act like I am dying this minute. And I'm waiting to go for the real life I don't.
Now, that doesn't mean I'm not going to live this life. That doesn't mean I am not going to plan or study or do do do all what we have to do because that's what he wants me to do. But my focus will not be this. And the most important thing low calorie alimony if they only know don't put it number one over there.
And look at my 24 hours and your 24 hours remove sleep, how many of that 1816 Whatever is for the akhirah and how many it is for dunya
you do the math, if they only know
if they only know and this is one of the things you have to out when you read this you say your Hola Hola, me, your hola teach me. Your hola make me know this fact, not only when I'm in the class, but when I am outside there. When I'm in the middle of my work when I'm in the middle of the dunya pulling me to Allah, Allah made me remind me that this is only a mirage.
This is only a few days, few hours few years, right? The boy that you all heard about in Chicago, right? Last Tuesday he was playing
and his mother probably had a lot of plans for him. When $1 off here or here Haiwan he wants to eat almost pantalla be it Nila.
Are you all with me? Why do you think this verse in Surah, two Lanka boot because I'm going to be tested.
I am going to be tested in everything, let alone the big huge test we are seeing. And especially when the test is in something I don't want to I don't like what I can take.
Then my focus shifts. If you are thinking if you're thinking of your place in an era,
right? I will be like the Sahaba who fought for the Orion for the flag in the battlefield. I'm not going to be scared because this is this is just temporary. Did you get the point? That's why Allah subhanaw taala putting it at the end because he told me and you you will be tested. Get ready. Get ready so what do I do? Yeah, Allah
focus on the Accra. The more you focus on your Accra, your iman here will be stronger the more your iman is stronger than you can take it. And then he gives an example of failure.
Are you ready for the failure? We all do that? We all do that. How many of you were stuck in an elevator?
What did you do?
So Allah for dua, your Allah gets me out and just gets me out. He did.
And after a day or two or three or a week, what happened?
Back right, and look what he said here. Because he knows he's my Creator and yours He knows he knows how we think. He knows how Shavon beautify things for us. And he said phase out a keyboard full full key da hum Christina who de la manager home in Halle Berry either home Yoshiko
translation is an example when they are in the sea. In a boat. How many of you had real turbulence in an airplane?
How scary. Your Hola, yup, nothing comes out of your mouth. Right.
That's it. That's it. That's a Thomas Gani when, especially when it gets really bad, right? That's what he's saying.
When they are in the sea, and he didn't go into the detail in other places, Phil Anoma Jonas, you want to know the details about it? Right? When the the tides or the currents become so high, and they think they will drown. They say you're Allah. If you had if Yunus will and and this is exactly a date and I'm in handy. If you're going to save us from this. We will be the believers you want.
And then Allah says here for the manager, he saved us. The plane didn't fall otherwise I will not be talking to you. Right? didn't crash. The elevator opened whatever else. tough situation you were on. Allah opened it up. What happened?
Either home use record and he didn't say your courtroom.
They made partners with Allah.
What is the partners? What is the partners
Again, this is for the disbelievers, those who have partners with Allah. Do I have partnered with Allah? Absolutely.
I don't worship it. Any I don't know Salah to it. But I do Salah directly. Right? And there was a beautiful poem recently I listened to the meaning of I don't remember it very, very well. But they said, people and money is literally an idol. That every nation in different language pray to it.
So when I, Allah saved me from the again, elevator, the plane, whatever it is, I was sick, very sick. And then hamdulillah I'm cute.
And then I say Hamdulillah, right, two days later, three, four, back. You should be cool. You bring people to become more than our last Pantera more important than Allah subhanaw taala beauty work job, children, all this? Because that's a test. Remember all the surah is about? Test. That's the biggest test how truthful I am. In my promises to Allah subhanaw taala how sincere I am to Allah subhanaw taala when the test comes in,
is my culture more important than Allah? Is my beauty more important than Allah and my children? And the answer is
everybody is quiet.
The answer nothing is more important. Your OB I mean
reality, right. How many times I miss my salah because I'm working or I'm in college.
How many times I don't wake up during the weekend for Fudger because it's weekend I want to sleep.
But I wake up during the week because I'm going to work or I'm going to class
this is when we need to reflect we need to reflect on this and then why so they weren't ungrateful we have probie ma Tina they are ungrateful while your tomato let them enjoy
your Allah have scary haha let them enjoy. Let's enjoy the house or enjoy the beauty enjoy the hell for enjoy the money for Sofia alum and he this also repeated concept in the Quran.
That doesn't mean I want to say this again and again and again. That doesn't mean don't enjoy what you have.
Because Allah gave it to me. But don't use it in the way to disobey Him.
He gives me a job. Doesn't matter what a job it is. If you're 15 or 16 and you got your first job. How exciting is this? Write your first paycheck. How exciting is this? I remember my first one up to this day. How exciting is this? Right it is $50 doesn't matter but it's right. Don't disobey Allah to get the $50
whether in your dress code whether in your Salah whether your interaction or how you will spend the $50 they are Karima attain our home. They are ungrateful to what we gave them and let them enjoy it while you're tomato. Go and enjoy for Sophia yummy.
Two more verses and the last one is absolutely what we need. I will Amuro Anna Jana haram and Amina, this is what applies to assaults. What is says so I will Amuro Anna Jana Herman Amna, Allah has single they see we made a haram that is absolutely safe and serene, because the kuffaar came to Rasul Allah Sato Sinha. This is in Makkah and they said if we're going to be believers, that we will be hurt. The people will hurt us. Does that thinkable?
If we say I am a Muslim
Islam phobia, if I'm going to speak up, I don't know what will happen right and pervy knows we have been a lot of discussion on that group.
And Allah says, Allah mural, we made it we made we made it we made you safe and people around them are unsafe.
They believe in the falsehood and then we'll be named Matilda whom Jaco and then the blessings of Allah they reject what does that mean? For me and you?
The fact I am a Muslim, a believer connected with Allah subhanaw taala obeying Allah subhanaw taala He will protect me
but I need to really really what
believe in it. I know your pain. I nearly acting as if you are seeing it. As if you are seeing it is not like you know, I'm so worried don't speak up. Literally I people will come to me insults. Don't give these lectures
Don't do that really?
Really? I know parents have said this to their children.
I know neighbors said it to their neighbors really,
really? Is that who we are? And then we think Allah will give us victory. cannot even say a word.
So what what are they going to do to us? If you are focused on the fear, I'm not going to say go and and fight, but at least to stand up
in your words.
And then Allah subhanaw taala says, the opposite woman or glom on mellifera Allah Allah He Cohiba,
who does more injustice that the one who says about Allah, things that is not true.
When somebody says, Where is Allah here?
Don't say this. It's me. It's my shortcomings. I don't know my Robbie. He's there. He's always there.
He's always there. Don't say anything about Allah subhanaw taala other than what pleases other than what we should say.
And the last one, hardly, it absolutely applies on the people as
well, again, Ajah do Fina.
And this applies to us, of course, but specially when you go through real difficult time when you struggle for the sake of Allah.
And I'm not talking about
fasting, and I miss my food. It's a struggle. But it looks very trivial. These days, when I compare it with the struggles, or Latina, Jaha Delphina those who struggle for us for my path. Struggle means I am going through something very uncomfortable. I don't like it is very hard for many people, but I'm doing it only for Allah, including when I put my hijab, including when I pray in the middle of work, including when I'm fasting and Iftar is at nine or 10 Ramadan, and you come for taraweeh and tomorrow is work and ecology had that applied. Now.
Those who are in the middle of this, I saw literally before I came that physician in that hospital that was bombard today. Four of his family member. They was brought to the emergency room when he was there.
He identified them imagine this
and nothing came out. I mean, of course he was very emotional, but nothing came out is law.
When levena Jaha do fina the question for everybody what Jihad I did for Allah. I'm not talking about fighting here at all. What Jihad I did for MMA. What did I give up from my comfort for Allah?
And then he said then Deanna homeschool Anna, there is a lot of emphasis here llama Toki Denali, Toki. There is at least two
tools he used to emphasize, we will guide you to our to our way, you know what's guidance to our way. When you see people are so patient.
When you see this young people say things you can't imagine. You can't imagine what they are saying. Right? When you see somebody here and somebody tell him you're a terrorist, and a younger man or a young woman stand up and say it beautifully. No, I am not.
That's how Allah guide you. And at the end the home sunnah He will guide you to the right path. Not only that you become a good Muslim, but he would like you to say the right thing, to stay silent when it is better to speak when it is better to act when it is better. Don't act when it is better. But this will not happen unless you struggle for the sake of Allah.
So the question for everybody in this room and everybody close to 400 people online, what did we do for Allah as a struggle? For him only, especially us living in this comfort life? What a comfort we live in May Allah make us among the grateful enough is the weather.
I mean it that we don't even struggle with the weather Subhanallah let alone everything else. What did I do for the sake of Allah, that is against my comfort. So he will guide me.
Once I do this, this is actually
a statement of emphasis and a result. I struggled for the sake of Allah, I give up my comfort when it is needed for Allah not because I don't I don't have it. Not because I don't like it.
On the contrary, I like it. I love it. Everybody else is doing it but I'm not doing
winging it. Because he does not like it. I give it up for Allah and it is hard. I'll guide them to my path. And the last one and this is how we ended the surah where in Allah Halima and Mazzini. You will be you will become people of Assam, which is your worship Allah as you see him and if you don't see him, he sees you. The highest level of closeness to Allah is an Epson. And Mohsen, in
levena, Arsenal husana was here there. Those who act with a son becomes a Mohsen, you have Jana but not only dunya was the the extra which has seen Allah subhanaw taala. So the the take home message for all of us, we will be tested. What we are seeing today and what we're going to Allah knows what is going to happen in the future. This is this is part of this life, we will be tested. We as Muslims struggle for the sake of Allah wake up for time, God, if you cannot make this dua for them, make dua for Allah forgive me, maybe maybe my dua or yours, one person dua can lift all the suffering of the world. And then I want to meet Allah subhanaw taala with the sun and the sun is
when I struggle against myself for the sake of Allah and this is for the youth and not for the very young people. And I will end up with this hasn't time yet come to go back to Allah, what else we will see
what else will happen that will change me
and this is one of the blessings I call it on the internet. Because now we are seeing it. We are seeing it may Allah subhanho wa Taala lift the suffering on the people of Azusa May Allah subhanaw taala give them suberb patient may Allah subhanho wa Taala make them the martyrs and Allah subhanaw taala accept them with him as martyrs and as shahada as martyrs and it gives them the highest level. May Allah Subhana Allah live to this suffering everyone in this world may Allah subhanaw taala make us the reason for end of this suffering era hula and Hareem will Aleem that thorough boudoir shoot Karina
Abu Salah to Rob will order Abu Dhabi and keep saying this dua This is the out of a curb. This is the dua Rasul Allah saw it was an unsaid one it was when he I think you saw two cinemas going through a difficult time. So let's get ready for sinabi Nila and then after Salah it's mainly for the youth so give time for the youth. It's going to be a workshop to teach them how to speak especially in schools and at work. And then if there is more room, absolutely. You're more than welcome to attend. Just come along Hira Subhanak Allahumma will be handy Kashia do ya stuff Furukawa to bootleg some Allahu ala Sayidina Muhammad Allah Allah He was happy to see him and Kathy you know
