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


00:00:54 --> 00:00:56

we've entered into the month of Shabaan.

00:00:57 --> 00:01:01

And, but then a few days will be in the month of Ramadan.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:13

And as we're standing in Ramadan, fasting once again, attending the masjid once again, being a part of the community on that path of spiritual growth once again,

00:01:14 --> 00:01:26

there are questions that what am I trying to accomplish in my Ramadan. Now there are obviously the connection with the Quran and the fasting and all the other things that are a part of our team.

00:01:27 --> 00:02:07

But while you're trying to grow spiritually, there are certain barriers that we've placed in our life to grow spiritually. without addressing those barriers. First, there's only so much we can accomplish. So for example, my legs bleeding, and I want to run as long as my leg is painting me, running is going to be difficult for me, what I what I've accomplished, running without pain, I won't be able to accomplish while running with pain. If I deal with the pain, the barrier first if I deal with the problem first and then I go on this journey and I run I'll be able to accomplish so much more. So when the month of Ramadan comes there are questions of what are our barriers? What are

00:02:07 --> 00:02:41

things that are holding us back? What are things that are stopping us from growing? And people have different things you know, there's no one thing the truth is for some people, it's their addiction to wasting time. That's that's that's a barrier for their spiritual growth. They can't stop wasting time on their WhatsApp. They can't stop wasting time playing games on their phones. They can't stop wasting time watching stuff on Netflix and binging on Hulu. That's their nemesis in life that holds them back constantly. For some of us, it's our addictions of our social gatherings we can't get enough of just being around friends and and hanging with them and wasting time with them. Everyone

00:02:41 --> 00:02:46

has their own thing going on. But today, but today in this whole Dubai wanted to address something

00:02:48 --> 00:03:27

on a very personal level. For many of us the thing that holds us back from building that true bond with Allah subhanahu wa Tada is a lack of trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala it's something that we're afraid to talk about. It's something that many of us experience. It's something locked away in our heart. But we feel that if we were to verbalize our feelings of our relationship with Allah and how it actually really is, the world may write us off as disbelievers but until you don't address what's deep in that heart, until you don't address the problems, that skepticism that distance, that barrier that she thought it has created between you and your Lord, you and your Allah, that

00:03:27 --> 00:03:46

relationship is always going to be limited. Now the question is, why are people distant? Why is it that there is doubt even exist? That Allah subhanahu wa Tada is everything Allah subhanaw taala is our man he is our Rahim. It's because of certain encounters we've had in our life. Specifically speaking,

00:03:47 --> 00:04:24

when we face difficulty and challenges in our life, every person sitting here goes through their own set of unique challenges. The person speaking to you, and the word listening as well. The person sitting to your right and left have come to this gathering today with a unique burden on their shoulder. And it would be inappropriate for me to view someone's burden as insignificant because Allah subhanho wa Taala is putting them through a unique challenge and a unique moment in life that they have to deal with. Their circumstances are different, their ability is different, their temperament is different. You know, and there is no part in your life. There is no day in your life

00:04:24 --> 00:04:59

that will ever come that you are free of tests of difficulties. There's always a challenge. There's always a grind in life. I was born in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, small town. We went to public school and in our public school there, there were hardly people of color there, let alone you know, a young Muslim men with you know, I had sisters that went as well, young girls, this was something that was out of the blue, and we'd get bullied a lot. And I remember when I arrived in pre K, this is before I even hit first grade. I came into class and everyone was introducing themselves and someone asked me, Hey, what's your name? And I said, my name is Hussein. And the guy's like, Oh, you're insane and

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00


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

Stuck. For the rest of the year, everyone called me insane because that was what my name sounded like. And I thought to myself, Man, I can't wait for it to get better. Because, you know, when I get to first grade, things are going to be awesome. I'm going to be the big kid, I got to first grade. And there was another problem there. I thought to myself, You know what, when I get to fifth grade, I'll get to sit at the back of the bus. And I'll be the cool kid, I got to fifth grade. And I realized that until you weren't in middle school, you were insignificant. And then when I got to middle school, I realized I had to get into high school and I got into high school, you have to

00:05:26 --> 00:05:59

place in a good college once I got to college, then the issue was you got to graduate once I graduated. Now it was about getting a job once you get a job by getting married, once you get married, having kids once you have kids, and the cycle just continues on getting a house getting a car, getting kids their education, and you think to yourself, When will that day actually come that I'm free of worries in life, and then you tell yourself maybe that day will come when I retire. But by the time you retire, half the limbs in your body aren't working anymore. And that statement of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam truly resonates, where he said Allahu alayhi wa sallam said,

00:05:59 --> 00:06:34

Well, who will say you decide your team at dunya Darren mana that this world was never a place of luxury, it was never a place of relaxation for that Allah has stored a whole eternity Jana, this get to the door and Allah will take care of everything else just get to agenda, then you'll find out what luxury actually is, then you'll find out what what it means to live a life without worry without concern. Or if you have managed to heal and focus, what level are you in, you know, whatever your heart desires, Allah will give it to you there. But this place was never meant for that. This place this world is a constant grind, there's always something going on.

00:06:35 --> 00:07:13

And in our in our minds, unfortunately, shaytaan has deluded us to believe and this is where that barrier that distant comes between the servant and his master. That every time you're tested by Allah, it's a result of you being punished by Allah subhanahu wa, tada. You know, the western world is very into the idea of karma, karma. And the Muslims have bought into it as well. That you know, what, every difficulty you face is a result of something bad that you've done. And as Muslims, we don't necessarily view it that way. We view Allah subhanahu wa taala has wisdom to be embedded in every interaction of ours. In every gathering of ours and every meeting of ours, Allah subhanaw

00:07:13 --> 00:07:43

taala has wisdom is embedded there. And most of us because we are short sighted, and we don't have the depth in our thought, not all of us but some of us, we only see the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala when we examine things retrospectively, so when I, once I've reached 25 years of age, when I look at my life now backwards, I realized that there was a lot of grind and there was a lot of difficulty that I faced in the early 25 years of my life, but I see wisdom in them, I find meaning in them, because when you look at things retrospectively, you find the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala there.

00:07:45 --> 00:08:23

Now, the premise is that Allah subhanahu wa taala punishes people for what they do in their life for what the difficulties they encounter. Now many Muslims, they support this through certain verses of the Quran. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, for example, while my Saba comb men will see but in Febi Makka Saba ad comb, way off one cathedra Allah subhanahu wa Tada says in a brief summary of that translation of the idea is that many of the calamities you face in your life are a result of what you're and what your hands have earned. What you've done is action. So what you do come out to dinner today and what you what you sow, is what you're going to plow right. That's the that's what

00:08:23 --> 00:09:03

you're going to harvest. That's a summary of that the argument developed from that idea. Now the problem with that idea is when you study this I'm not problem with the idea problem with our understanding of that I have is great. The problem with our deduction from the IRA is a lack of a nuance while studying the verse itself. Now we go to the iron again, Allah subhanahu wa Tada says, ma ASABE or Masaba Khun min, we'll see but in Febi maca Saba ad Komarov Juan cathedra. Now I would, this would require an extensive period of time to really explain the nuance, but I'm just going to jump right to it. The issue, when we translate this is the particle of men is very important and

00:09:03 --> 00:09:44

plays an integral integral role in an accurate translation. Allah subhanaw taala says, While ma Saba can mean mostly button, the word men is very important here. And the reason is because men can be easily translated in the English language as from a part of anatomy, we say men is fourth of Earth, the breathe is to create a portion of something, it's not for the entire entirety to be a part of something. So for I'll give you an example in English, okay, if I were to tell you, I want you to read Harry Potter, I give you the book, Harry Potter, and I say I want you to go read it. Right now. What that would mean is read the book from beginning to end, the cool, read the whole thing. Now, if

00:09:44 --> 00:10:00

I were to say, Read from Harry Potter, you would say to me what part of it because when I say from now to carry this establish that not the entire thing, a part of it. So once we once we've established that not all difficulties in life, are a result of our sins and we

00:10:00 --> 00:10:35

aren't constantly being punished in the world, a part of it may be a result of the actions that we do that ALLAH SubhanA went out as giving us a reminder while we still live in this dunya The question is, what part of it? You know, so how do I know which of my actions will result in difficulty in this world calamity in this world? So now the scholars have seen have engaged in lengthy discussion here, there's a lot of discussion here. One of the things they say is that only those actions a person will be punished for in this world, regarding which the Messenger of Allah has clearly said so. So for example, there are some a Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam,

00:10:35 --> 00:11:05

and it's a long list of them not too long, but there are some narrations, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says that when Zina becomes common, so and so will happen in the world, when riba becomes common, so and so what happened will happen in the world, when when children become disobedient to their parents, so and so will happen. So there are actually clear statements of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now, I don't want to go through all of them, because that's not the purpose of the hotel. The purpose of the hotel is one of the key points I want to establish today, that this idea that we have, that every difficulty we face in our life is a result of Allah

00:11:05 --> 00:11:25

subhanho wa Taala punishing us. First of all, it's not true. Speaking in absolutes, when it comes to this issue is not true. The second thing, it's actually very harmful to the soul of a person to think like this. Because in that case, what happens is that they become distant from Allah subhanahu Matana, that My Allah is constantly angry with me. You know, you go sit with

00:11:27 --> 00:12:03

Muslim youth, and you talk with them. And I kid you not. I've sat with high schoolers, and college age young men and young women, and I've talked to them, and I've said, you know, tell me what you think when I say Hola, and many of us would say Rahmani Raheem. But for many of us that I know, they say, an angry God. You know, that's punishing me that's always angry. I mean, it's putting me through so much difficulty. And it's really just trying to destroy me. And it's because this narrative has been fed to them, you go to the Christian communities, right? There's a constant message that's being conveyed to their, to their masses. God is mercy. God loves you. God is mercy.

00:12:03 --> 00:12:42

God loves you. So the amount of a person is developed on the premise that the relationship that I have with Allah subhanho wa Taala is not that I'm an executor, and someone who's about to be executed. Rather, my relationship is built on the premise that My Allah is merciful, and He loves me more than my parent loves me. And this was actually the model, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself adopted when teaching and educating his community. My oldest son, Mohammed, you know, a few years back, we were at home, and I was studying in my office just preparing for a class and he was sitting on the other side of the table doing his work. And I looked at him, I turn away to do

00:12:42 --> 00:12:52

some research. Then I looked at him again, and I saw Mohammed was sitting there and he was writing, but he was crying. I said, Mohamed, why are you crying? He says to me, Abba.

00:12:54 --> 00:13:00

The reason why I'm crying is because he goes to public school, by the way, he says that the reason why I'm crying is because my teacher hates me.

00:13:02 --> 00:13:16

So when he said that, I thought to myself, his teacher hates him. He's barely six years old. Why would your teacher hate you? You're a good kid. So I asked him, What makes you think that your teacher hates you? He said, Well, my teacher gives me so much homework that my hand hurts while I'm writing.

00:13:17 --> 00:13:56

And his only conclusion to that difficulty in life was that there could be no other possibility. Then the reality the fact that he's, he's already preconceived, that my teacher hates me. And I have to explain to him that this wasn't the sitter hating him. This was his teacher pushing them through a phase in his life that he has to push through in order to accomplish greater things in life. If we will summarize such a intimate relationship of a servant and a master to the words that every time we see someone going through a divorce, that they're being punished by Allah subhanaw taala every time we see someone's business get flushed down the drain, we say that they're being punished by

00:13:56 --> 00:14:33

Allah subhanho wa taala. Every time someone's child is disobedient, we say it's a punishment from Allah subhanho wa taala. You know, the dichotomy in the statement, by the way, you know, the irony in the statement, we're so willing to say people are being punished, but when it comes to ourselves, we're careful. You know, someone's marriage breaks down he says, you know, bad luck. The next dudes marriage breaks down. What do you say? Lucky Lana? Tezpur God's curses on that dude right there. You know, they were doing some haram Hanky Panky stuff during their actual wedding ceremonies and I knew that day Allah had inspired in my heart my my a very vague dark hole and cavity in my chest that

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

this marriage is going to break down.

00:14:36 --> 00:14:36


00:14:38 --> 00:14:49

we study this from a hadith perspective. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam actually refutes this very openly and clearly. He said, Allahu Allah, he was salam said, out of all of the creation of Allah.

00:14:50 --> 00:14:59

Those who are tested most are most beloved to Allah subhanho wa taala. He's flipping the script. He's flipping the script, the prophet system is flipping it. So when now it says if the prophets of Allah what

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

Ever since perspective in life was that every time my Allah tested me, it wasn't because he was angry at me. My Allah subhanahu wa thought it was testing me because he loved me. And he was putting me through difficulty in life so I can grow. Allah subhanho wa Taala was showering His mercy upon me. That was the perspective of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. And if a person can reach their, that every difficulty they have, rather than viewing it as a burden, they begin to view it as an honorable guest in their life. Trust me their spirituality will skyrocket. Go and study the Quran and you'll find stories all through the Quran. Look at a you body set up such a difficult moment in

00:15:39 --> 00:16:17

his life, lying there diseased, his house collapsed family died, that took his body and, you know, removed it from the city and he was where the by the dump area and the only person left by his side was his beautiful and, and loyal and pious wife. She's the only one by his side. And at this moment, he's continues to do the vicar of Allah. Because he doesn't and he refuses. His wife says to him, why don't you ask Allah to cure you? He says that Allah gave me a long life of health, just a few years of illness With what face? Am I going to ask Allah to cure me that was his Musa. That was his personality. And even then when he does ask Allah for cure, look at the IW users. He doesn't say to

00:16:17 --> 00:16:56

Allah, Allah, Allah, he's not angry at Allah. This difficulty this calamity in life didn't create spider in his heart. There was no frustration with Allah. Rather when he makes a lot of Allah. He says rugby in the Messenia and Tarhan Rahimi he doesn't even ask for curing the IRA by the way he doesn't say it'll be spinning. He didn't say that. He says I'll be in the millennial or he states Fact number one and then states Fact number two and leaves it there. What's Fact number one? Oh Allah I'm sick in the millennials or you know, illness has come to me. Well Antara Moroccan in fact, number two, you're the most merciful. That's why the Messiah would always make dua to Allah, that

00:16:56 --> 00:17:30

Allah Allah never test us with, with an illness that'll take us away from you. Never test us with a burden that will take us away from you. And Allah subhanahu wa Tada will never do that. You know, there's a famous poet from the subcontinent by the name of Allah McCubbin. He talks about the bird that flies at high altitudes in one of his lines, and I'll just translate it in English what he says. He says that the bird that flies at high altitudes, will constantly face a thrust of wind. And when that wind hits the bird, the bird has an option choice to make. Either it lowers its beak or it raises it speak. If it lowers its beak, it'll let them in the ground. But if it raises his beak,

00:17:31 --> 00:18:07

when that wind thrust against it, it'll only continue to elevate, elevate, elevate, elevate, and that's the reality of life. When you face difficulty, and you hold yourself down and with all those thoughts, crossing through your mind that my marriage sucks, My life sucks. I fill my classes. I'm, I'm a waste of space on this earth. Everyone else around me is better than me. Why am I so miserable? When those thoughts come? Turn to yourself and give yourself a little spiritual hug and say, Yeah, Allah. I feel very lonely right now. I don't think my shoulders can carry this burden and weight anymore. I can't tell anyone when I'm going through because these days even friends are there

00:18:07 --> 00:18:45

to stab you in your back. But yeah, Allah, I know that what I'm going through is only possible to even happen to me if you've allowed it to happen. So yeah, Allah as long as this will bring me close to you. Let it come. But I asked you that when you send difficulty send somebody with it. Yeah, Allah when you send the crusher to come and break my will I ask that you give me tuck we have him on as well. Give me strengthen my Eman. Amara Katara the Allah Juan would make dua he would say yeah, Allah, I don't ask that you remove my my difficulty in my life. I ask that you give me strength. I don't ask that you lessen my burden. I ask that you give me strength Yet Allah, the messenger of

00:18:45 --> 00:19:08

allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a point in his life. And thoughts are gonna roam your mind. By the way, this is something that's just gonna happen. It's a part of life, you know, you're gonna think of 100 things like you know, only had I. And then the sentence continues on only If so and then the sentence continues on. There are a million possibilities in life, but you have to accept the half of what's happened. Not the possibility, the reality. There was a time in the life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:19:10 --> 00:19:16

where he said, Allahu alayhi wa sallam was going through a lot of difficulty. He was going through a lot.

00:19:17 --> 00:19:52

And thoughts started building in the prophets mind actually, before I even share that narration I want to show I want to actually examine how this what the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam encounters is something very real even in our own communities. You know, there was a lady who once came to me, and she had a child she was she was expecting was her first maybe she she was expecting, and the doctors had told him that her child would be born with disabilities. She asked me what my thoughts were I reached out to a few other scholars had a few physicians involved just to give good advice. And at the end of it, we advised her that if she wished she could go ahead and terminate the

00:19:52 --> 00:19:53


00:19:54 --> 00:19:59

By the time she made the decision, because she was taking her time and making the decision. It was a very important one. It was too late.

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

and she couldn't go through with the termination anymore. She had to carry the child till the end of the term. When she carried the child to the end of the term after she gave birth to the child, they realized that what the what the doctors had forecasted in terms of the, the potential illness of the child could be born with was just the beginning of the list. It was a lot worse than that. And every time I would speak to her, she would be in tears, like any mother, and then the reality hit her that the room she had decorated for her daughter, her daughter would never make it there. You know, she, her daughter wasn't going to make it out of the hospital. So there was one she called me one evening

00:20:33 --> 00:21:05

and right before because it's interesting, I was actually going in to speak at a fundraiser for children with disabilities. And she called me right before I stepped in. And she said to me, you know, Imam, the doctors have said that I'm gonna lose my child, there's no way my child is going to make it home. Tonight, we'll be taking the child off life support. And I'll be saying without to My beloved daughter, and even to hearing the mother say that is very difficult, by the way, that this is the end of the journey with my daughter was very short, it was sweet, but I cherished every moment of it. Not the next thing she said is what really kind of crushed my heart and made me fall

00:21:05 --> 00:21:25

into tears. Because what she said, unfortunately, was a reflection of the reality of the Muslim ummah today, she said to me, I think I'll be able to deal with the loss and death of my daughter, I think I'll deal with it. And look at her Iman. She said, The reason why I think I can deal with it is because Allah is the one who put me here. Now you can leave Allahu

00:21:27 --> 00:21:38

Allah will never put me in a place that I can't handle. And even though I don't know, I have the superpowers. As a mother tomorrow, I'll bury my daughter. And it won't break me. My Eman will get stronger.

00:21:39 --> 00:22:00

Then she said to me, in order for me to pull through the next 24 hours in the next months to come. There is one question that I have for you. And it's something that people have been saying repeatedly. And I need an answer on this. And I said, Sure, go ahead. And she says to me, people have been telling me, the reason why I had a child with disabilities is because Allah subhanaw taala is punishing me.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:15

Because I had a child with disabilities as a result of Allah's punishment. And when she said this, I hurt my heart so much. You know, what hurt me is because whoever would say something like that isn't just a bad person, they're the scum of the earth, you have to be a really weird type of

00:22:17 --> 00:22:18

we're in a hotspot

00:22:19 --> 00:22:39

of not a good person to say something like that. someone's lying on the ground, they're in tears, they're hurt, the heart is already melting, and you come and you kick them in the face again. Is that all it is? Does it really hurt you to say too good words. Isn't that hard? And you're nuts to say that maybe Allah subhanaw don't want that as testing you and has stored for you a place in general? Is that hard for you to see?

00:22:41 --> 00:22:51

Have we gone spiritually so dark, that we can't hug another brother that's in pain and let them cry on our shoulder and kiss them on the forehead and say that as long as I live? I'll make dua for you. Is it that hard?

00:22:52 --> 00:23:17

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. You know, there was a couple that came to my office once in the fathers and the husband said that, you know, my wife is constantly sad and she's crying. I asked her what happened. She said that I had three miscarriages. So I said to her, Can I share one rewire with you? Maybe it'll make you happy? She said, there's nothing that can make me happy again. I'm a mother. I'm a lady whose heart is broken. I said, if you allow me maybe I can try. She said Go ahead. I said you know the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:23:18 --> 00:23:22

He lost some children of his while they were still young.

00:23:24 --> 00:23:49

And during the journey of actually there are two devices I shared. This was one of them. I said during the journey of Eastern marriage, when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam reached the seventh heaven. He saw Ibrahim and he said I'm there. And there were a bunch of kids running around and someone was tugging on his beard jumping on his back pulling his leg. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked him and he said I'm Who are these kids? Ibrahim Ali Salam said these are kids who have left their parents in the world. They will be with me on that until the Day of Judgment

00:23:52 --> 00:24:26

imagine how humbled the Prophet was that is own Ibrahim was going to be with Ibrahim I listen I'm even though this Ibrahim wasn't born at the time of Sandman right but you know his own awesome. His own play have been taught here. We're going to be with Ibrahim Ali salaam, what an honor until the Day of Judgment. One person came to the Messenger of Allah and sent a messenger of Allah my wife is saddened that we had a miscarriage. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Let it be known to you that on the Day of Judgment, when you will stand in front of Allah when Allah will call your name for your hisab and you will stand there. A baby will come and say, Yeah, Allah no hisab of

hers. She is my mother. She left me in the dunya. I left her in the dunya. You've promised me Jana and she's coming with me.

The promise of some says he will hold the Father by the finger and take the father and agenda to coming back to that one lasted a while and with the son close, because this is where we started. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during his life. There was a point where he was going through a lot. He went through a lot emotionally, you know, and I think that's one part

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

Have a seat when we read, we completely negate we don't pay attention. We don't realize the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a human being with emotion, and therefore we don't appreciate the seed as much as we actually should. Now, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a point in his life where he was going through a lot, and people started saying such horrible slurs, that, you know, the reason why you're going through your difficulties is because your Lord is angry at you. During that period revelation had had also paused by the will of Allah. So someone said to him, Your Lord has abandoned you. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the thought of being

00:25:32 --> 00:25:50

lonely, no one likes to be alone. The thought of being, you know, vanished or being Allah Subhan. Allah is anger, descending upon him was not something that he was happy, happy. If so, this took the prophets of Allah while he was talking to a very lonely, very sad place in his life. And Allah subhanahu Matata, seeing His Habib in the state,

00:25:51 --> 00:26:05

sent Gibreel Ali salaam as a counselor to console the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the words of counsel of consoling came through certain verses of the Quran. And I want to share these verses as they close off the football

00:26:06 --> 00:26:44

as a reflection and reminder that this Ramadan, you will have your barriers, you have to throw them away. In particular, if that Berry is that you have you're having a tough time trusting Allah. If shaytaan is somehow you know, create a wedge between you and your master your creator, you have to get rid of it. Well, the Hola Hola, Anthem.

00:26:44 --> 00:27:16

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is very sad going through his moment and he shares with him some verses of the Quran and I want you to reflect over these verses and really understand what's happening in the surah Allah subhanho wa Taala reveals while the HA and the rising of the sun after every long dark cold painful night the sun is going to rise of the HA well lately either soldier but after the sunrises night will come again. This is just the cycle of life. good days and bad days come and go we still can't do that. We don't have a nurse.

Yeah Allah but this much is too much for me I can't handle it. Well, so for your ticker Abu Qatada to stick it through tomorrow when

pulled you through what makes you think your Allah is going to abandon you today? That Allah subhanaw taala closes off by saying be a contributor to those who are struggling what they'll also be happy what also suffer that if you see someone struggling help them. familia tema, well amellia tema fella taka what a messiah ill flattener that when you see an orphan because yesterday you were an orphan today when you see an orphan Don't oppress the orphan. Yesterday you were financially impoverished. So tomorrow when you see a poor person, don't just push them away and walk away and ignore them. Human beings we have to be there for one another. We are all that we have. We are in

00:29:13 --> 00:29:49

OMA, we are a family. We have to be there to support one another. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam ends with Allah azza wa jal ends a surah with the most powerful advice. Well, I'm being here I'm at Rob Baker for Hadith. Be positive, don't be negative. That's a satanic feeling. That's a sheath on ik whisper in the hole is America in common cafiero and shaytaan creates despondency in you he makes you think dark thoughts of Allah. He brings all of your problems to you at once. And you think there's no way out I'm locked in a cage. Well, I'm being here I'm at Europe because every time you go through you think of difficulty. Think of the favours of Allah subhanho wa Taala you

00:29:49 --> 00:29:59

know, think of what Allah subhanahu wa Tada has given you. And if you're able to focus on that your iman will rise. So I pray that Allah subhana what that allows us to achieve our goals is Ramadan.

00:30:00 --> 00:30:35

In the barriers that we have as individuals, Allah subhanaw taala allows us to conquer our demons, and that we remove them. And there never be a barrier between us and our Master. And that when we do such the we are in love with Allah. And when we say Allah's Name, there is no doubt in our heart, and that when we call in Allah, we are close to him, and he is close to us, and that every difficulty we face in this room, we ask Allah that He gives us strength to pull through them, that it does not cause our faith to waver and that on the Day of Judgment, we are fully compensated and joined in the highest rank with the prophets, the martyrs and the truthful ones are sort of aha
