Mr. Heyman hamdulillah

00:02:17--> 00:02:19

hamdulillah him aka Ramana and anybody

00:02:21--> 00:02:28

who saw Santa Ana say he did a study of a quarter million BIA while leakiness Kia was clear and my bad.

00:02:32--> 00:02:36

There is a statement commonly attributed to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:02:38--> 00:02:40

a dunya mazaraki will ask era.

00:02:42--> 00:02:47

The world is the harvesting field for the hereafter.

00:02:48--> 00:02:54

Malian quarry while commenting on this narration, quoting Imams Javi says

00:02:56--> 00:03:01

this narration is not authentically attributed to the sort of loss of Allah Azza wa sallam.

00:03:02--> 00:03:07

Allama Sahar, he says I don't Hadith. I haven't come across the narration.

00:03:09--> 00:03:18

However, then he also states that even though the wording cannot be authentically attributed to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:03:20--> 00:03:26

the message of the statement is sound and is in reality of Quranic

00:03:28--> 00:03:31

citing the verse of Surah Surah.

00:03:32--> 00:03:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala says mon Karna, you need to hartal AF Irati Nigella houfy Hardy

00:03:39--> 00:03:44

Omen Calgary the heart of dunya, naughty Haman ha Omala who fill Afro Latino See,

00:03:45--> 00:03:47

whoever wishes for the harvest of the hereafter

00:03:48--> 00:03:50

we will increase them in that

00:03:51--> 00:03:59

and whoever wishes for the harvest of this world we will also give them a portion of it, but there will be no reward for them in the hereafter.

00:04:01--> 00:04:09

So imaams was added on to LAHIA Ali using that statement of a dunya murottal era

00:04:10--> 00:04:23

and he doesn't attribute it to little sort of loss of Allah honey was cinnamon rather the scholars they say even though in some cases it has been attributed, that you had more of an understanding of philosophy of how to look at the world.

00:04:25--> 00:04:30

So now building off of this analogy that is given to us in the Quran.

00:04:31--> 00:04:43

The Allameh they say that one way to look at it is the heart of the human being is like the soil in this analogy. I'll call blue collar the

00:04:44--> 00:04:46

the heart of the human being is like the soil.

00:04:47--> 00:04:59

Well Iman who Kalbarri fee and Eman is like the spreading of seed. Baba, baba Vito so come from there

00:05:00--> 00:05:02

To spread and scatter seed in a land

00:05:03--> 00:05:18

what the Arctic Giardia Majora Tenaglia to out of the water out here. And doing good deeds is like cleaning the land of its impurities and Hatfield and her alma, Sofia,

00:05:19--> 00:05:53

la ha, and digging out the, the canals through which the river cannot flow to the land and allowing water to reach there. So the heart is like the soil, the good deeds, Iman is like the spreading of the seeds. Without the Imam there is nothing that can come from there. You can't have fruits without the seeds, this is where it all begins. And then the good deeds are similar to removing the filth on that land and creating the proper passageway for water to reach it.

00:05:56--> 00:06:00

A heart that is drowning in the love of the dunya

00:06:01--> 00:06:09

is like an impure filthy land. No matter how much seed you pour on it, you cannot grow crops in a wasteland.

00:06:11--> 00:06:20

It just doesn't allow it. The heart is corrupt. You can present him with all the seeds of iman you want. It won't accept that EMA

00:06:21--> 00:06:32

This is why we see that some of the greatest opportunities of iman existed with the people who rejected Iman during the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:06:34--> 00:06:43

And when John had the greatest opportunity, he saw it all he witnessed and interacted with OSU Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam the purity of the faith was in front of him.

00:06:44--> 00:06:51

Yet he actively chose to refuse it. And this was unfortunately a reflection of the state of his heart.

00:06:53--> 00:07:02

The Day of Judgment in is told, we are told that the day of judgment is yo ml hasard It's the day of harvesting

00:07:03--> 00:07:16

you put the seeds in the ground, you reap the reward of your of your farming Yeoman hasard on the day of harvesting and gather your crops,

00:07:17--> 00:07:25

and a person has no chance at harvesting fruit unless they properly planted the seeds.

00:07:26--> 00:07:42

So you see how it's all connected, that in order for you to harvest in the Hereafter, you need to make sure the environment was right and then on top of before that you needed to ensure that the seed was correct and then before that, you also need to ensure the land is also appropriate.

00:07:43--> 00:07:58

Therefore, the Annamma they say very rarely will you see eemaan benefiting people with impure hearts and impure o'clock character. Because that character is a symptom of an impure heart.

00:07:59--> 00:08:09

Bad character is a symptom of an impure heart and likewise, if a person has a pure heart, the symptom and the side product of that will be it will be good o'clock.

00:08:12--> 00:08:18

So now when a person thinks of their affair of the Hereafter, this analogy you understand let's move forward now.

00:08:20--> 00:08:27

A person's a fair in the hereafter and for them to be hopeful in Allah subhanahu wata Allah's Mercy

00:08:28--> 00:08:37

should be similar to that of the farmers hope of fruit after fulfilling all the prerequisite steps.

00:08:39--> 00:08:42

Today's discussion is about understanding hope and fear

00:08:44--> 00:08:52

and hope and fear and Allah subhanahu wa Tada are the two wings that allow a person to elevate and gain closeness to Allah.

00:08:53--> 00:08:58

When a person has a CIFA, a characteristic they try to develop.

00:08:59--> 00:09:14

And that characteristic hasn't properly developed. It's still in its developmental phase. It arrives and leaves and arrives and it leaves the Anima dusky I refer to this sort of a wasp as a highlight.

00:09:16--> 00:09:44

As opposed to when the CIPA becomes a tablet. When that ciphers, Tabatha, it's firm, it's taking its roots, it's now grounded. They refer to this as a MACOM that now a person has taken a step on a stair that is firm, it's planted. It's one that won't easily leave. How does it become a heart and then turn into a MACOM? How does a person start engaging with this heart with this hope and Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:45--> 00:09:53

and then from there, transfer it into a meaningful existing state. Well, that comes through understanding this analogy.

00:09:55--> 00:09:59

The farmer can only hope for return on their

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

wrong

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

if they actually follow the proper steps

00:10:07--> 00:10:47

any person that goes to a pure land and spreads on it beautiful seed, healthy seed, and the seed is not soiled itself, the seat itself is not outdated and expired and they bring water to that land regularly they're constantly watering it. They're also ensuring that all forms and filth and any enemy to the crop is monitored and removed regularly. Then that person sits by the side of their farm on their rocking chair waiting for that fruit to come into existence. This weighting of that person is Raja

00:10:48--> 00:10:50

This is hoping Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:51--> 00:10:53

the or lemma they write that

00:10:54--> 00:11:38

Raja hope and hope Lai Utako Ismail Raja evil hope Ara Illa Allah Maya Tara de fer mama Yatta behave Farah. So hope and fear only exist in that area in that domain where there is no certainty. If something something is certain, then we don't use the word on our job and hope because it's certain that thing is going to happen. But if there's uncertainty, then we use the word no joy and hope that person did everything that farmer did everything. Is there a possibility that nothing will come from that ground from that land? Yes or no? Absolutely, there's a possibility nothing will grow or the crop will be spoiled or he'll yield less than what he was hoping for when he was expected. So that

00:11:38--> 00:12:22

person sits there on his chair rocking back and forward waiting and waiting that hopefully this is accepted. Because at the end of the day, all of our deeds and all the emaan and everything we do all the Viken the acceptance is with Allah subhanaw taala whether Allah subhanahu wa Tada accepts it or not, that's for ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada has mercy. And we hope to be beneficiaries of that mercy. As for the opposite scenario, for person went to a land that was filthy and dirty, and no water reaches it. The land itself is sitting on a hill. So any water that comes just passes by, he doesn't take care of it doesn't manage it, didn't even properly put the seeds there and now this person is

00:12:22--> 00:12:46

waiting for their harvest. The weighting of this person is not brought up rather it's humbled. It's foolishness. That waiting is meaningful hope. This weighting of the person is not meaningful. It's foolishness and stupidity because you did not do anything to wait to be deserving of the fruit that you are hoping to get.

00:12:47--> 00:13:14

To capture this will suit allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said in one rewire when beautiful narration Alka you summon done and if so, who Amina Lima Abaddon mode, and intelligent one is the one who controls himself, who was monitoring himself while I'm in my bharden mode, and then works to do deeds that will benefit after death.

00:13:15--> 00:13:49

While arches in the foolish one, Manitoba and epsa hoo ha ha the one that keeps following his desires whatever the desires say just do it. No restrain no hold back nothing. But in return with a man not Allah Hill. Amani this person has great hopes and Allah subhanaw taala Musa Allahu Allah was sort of referred to the person that is doing everything that they desire, and having a false sense of hope that I'm supposed to be a recipient of Allah subhanaw taala has mercy even though I've done nothing to deserve that mercy as a foolish person.

00:13:50--> 00:14:07

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is referring to a person who controls their desires and works hard day and night for that harvest for that aka. But if you don't know how to dunya will ask you to how you know, that they want the Hereafter they understand that you're after is everlasting, it's permanent.

00:14:08--> 00:14:13

So it'd be sort of long it was sort of refer to that individual as the intelligent one.

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

Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran tells us of people who had wishful thinking that was not based off of any reality.

00:14:22--> 00:14:59

In Surah Surah Al Kahf. Allah subhanaw taala tells us a story whether the biblical mythology Lane story of these two men, and they had an interaction with one another. It's a fascinating story. One of them had a lot of wealth, and the other one had little wealth, the one that had a lot of wealth, he he was so boastful and arrogant over what he had, but he didn't do anything for the agora. So when arguing with his counterpart, he said to him while eroded to Isla Robbie, he then Hiram in Hammond Colaba, that even I was so successful in the world that when I see Allah the Day of Judgment, Allah is gonna give me even better than this

00:15:00--> 00:15:40

I'm a millionaire in the world watch what Allah gives me in the Hereafter. This is wishful and Allah subhanaw taala doesn't quote this person's statement in McConville mother, it's more of a comment than it's not in a place of praise Allah subhanaw taala is almost highlighting this person's stupidity. Look how foolish this man is. did nothing for the hereafter. Note the 100 Salah no tilava of the Quran wasn't fasting didn't hold back from their knifes wasn't praying or slaw praying it not focusing properly rushing through Salah not doing will do properly. This person was a hot mess when it came to their father, yet a false sense of arrogance. Right where is this coming from? Where's

00:15:40--> 00:15:58

this arrogance coming from that God will give it all to me because I had something in the world. Similarly, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in sort of an hour off first off I'm embody him Hold on What it will get up yet for the wind out of the house half an hour away or coluna. So you'll find

00:15:59--> 00:16:12

the same concept. People who invested themselves in their worldly pleasures and desires while neglecting their Ophira and yet they have these hopes way of Kowloon so you Ferghana that shortly we will be forgiven.

00:16:14--> 00:16:51

Allah subhanahu wa taala tells us also in the Quran of people who are worthy and deserving of that Raja bat hope. He has a virgin says in Medina, Medina, Haji Raja Doofy, Sabina will equal your June, Allah, those who believe and perform their migration and fought in the path of Allah. These are people who have hope in Allah subhana wa dadas mercy and that mercy is legitimate because they spent their life fulfilling the covenant of loyalty to Allah azza wa jal. The

00:16:52--> 00:17:38

airport says 1000 Allahu Akbar who in the hadith is very large if you disobey your Lord and you say that you love him. This is a very peculiar scenario. No kind of humbug. I saw the camera I thought, Oh, if your love for him was sincere, you would have obeyed him in a burly man, you hippo material will because the lover is always obedient to the Beloved. Obedience is the language of love. Adam is the language of love. This is how a person shows that go to any parent and they'll say that you can say to me, you love me all day. But if you disobey me repeatedly, and you violate my honor, and you don't take me seriously, then what good is your love? Husband? I'll say the same. A wife will say

00:17:38--> 00:17:44

the same teacher will say the same. That what love are we talking about? If it isn't based on loyalty?

00:17:46--> 00:17:51

The province that Allahu alayhi wa sallam teaches us the importance of hope,

00:17:52--> 00:18:38

having good hope in Allah subhanaw Medina, and this is one of shaytans tricks. Because hope and fear must coexist. It's all only one exists, it will destroy the human being. When a person only focuses on hope and does not take into consideration fear of Allah subhana thought as punishment. When we say hope here we're talking about hope in what Allah subhanho wa Taala has stored for us in terms of reward. This is what rajas stands for. A person looks forward to what Allah azza wa jal has stored for them in the hereafter. Fear represents fearing what Allah subhanaw taala has stored for the disobedient in the Hereafter, in terms of punishment. So these two are like the wings of a bird. If

00:18:38--> 00:18:50

only one exists or isn't flight, if only the other exists, there isn't flight, you need both of them. You need hope and you need fear. Balancing hope and fear is one of the greatest challenges

00:18:51--> 00:19:02

shaytaan once one of the two to overcome you, because then his tactics on you become much easier to execute. When a person

00:19:03--> 00:19:04

becomes

00:19:05--> 00:19:47

indulged in just nothing but mercy. That's all they're thinking about that Allah is Rama, Rama Allah's Rama, then they become Jedi Allah, Marcia, they become very courageous, and they become bold to disobey Allah. We see this in our communities too, that there is no fear of consequences. So people, they disobey Allah and when they're confronted, or they're worn, or even reminded softly, whatever, whichever, whichever approach their responses, Allah will foot a lot of him Don't judge me and my relationship with Allah. If don't judge you with your relationship with Allah means that you're on a path of growth. And this is a part of that path and may Allah be with everyone. But if

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

this is just you, justifying your actions, and copping out of any accountability with those who care and love for you, and they're trying to have a conversation with you, then that's not acceptable. It's not

00:20:00--> 00:20:16

meaningful statement, we're trying to understand where are you. Now, there's a whole, there's a whole procedure and method of involving yourself in other people's life when it comes to encouraging them to do good. So we're assuming that all of that already exist.

00:20:18--> 00:20:38

So the whole part must exist, can be overwhelming, the fear part also can't overtake you. Because if it does, it'll wreck you. Serious Mental health issues can come getting birthed from there, people can lose touch with life, give up on their work, stop taking care of themselves.

00:20:40--> 00:21:06

And likewise, in some cases, it can also take them away from worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. They're so overwhelmed by that fear that God is going to punish me he's going to punish me that if I do one record, and it's even a little off posture, Allah subhanaw taala is going to punish me for everything, there's an overwhelming fear. So the balance is in the prophetic example, and the teachings of assuta loss of law and

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

one thing that I've noticed is that people struggle in making dua to Allah. And one of the reasons for making that people struggle in making dua to Allah is that, that fear that hope, and Allah subhanaw taala isn't properly placed. I shared the story in Milan,

00:21:30--> 00:21:36

there was a sister, who I met in hudge. We were in Ottawa.

00:21:37--> 00:21:42

I saw her sitting on the side. So I said to her, what are you doing here?

00:21:43--> 00:21:54

Why don't Why don't you you know, engage in some other everyone's doing a bother you're sitting on the corner she was sitting outside is on a cooler, quietly, you know, these water coolers outside she was sitting on one of them just sitting there not doing much.

00:21:56--> 00:22:12

So she said to me that I don't have the heart to make dua I feel God has betrayed me. The truth is I'm sitting in Ottawa, I've made so much a lot of alarm in my life, and he didn't accept my flaws. So I'm at crossroads, my Rob and I'm not able to honestly genuinely make the water well, I can't.

00:22:14--> 00:22:14

I want to,

00:22:15--> 00:22:25

I paid this money to come here. I was hoping it would change. But I'm sitting here in Ottawa, in the most virtuous of days and the most virtuous of places and I can't make dua.

00:22:28--> 00:22:39

So I sat with her and we had a conversation. And the truth is that Allah subhanaw taala did test her in ways that are just Subhanallah Wow, powerful.

00:22:41--> 00:22:49

But those tests in life, don't define who we are, they are an opportunity for us to once again stand up and prove our loyalty to Allah.

00:22:50--> 00:23:19

In life, there are things we control and then there are things that we don't control. What happens to us in life, we don't control that how we respond, we control that. So whether it rains at the end of this Holika outside or not, no one here has any control. When it does rain, what we do we get to choose that you can take a shirt off, go outside, get soaked and get sick, or you can hold an umbrella go to your car just didn't imagine and wait it out. These are all options and there are other options to what you that's your choice, this is where your intelligence will be seen. This is where your wisdom will be seen.

00:23:21--> 00:23:22

So I'm wondering if

00:23:25--> 00:23:28

you might say there's one for him and I he just came back mashallah acaba de la mia

00:23:30--> 00:23:35

hamdulillah Ramana was empty without Imam side. We missed the Allah.

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

Oh.

00:23:39--> 00:23:48

So we don't control what happens in life, starting to control or acting as if we control what happens in life is a God like

00:23:52--> 00:24:30

mindset and it will destroy you. You will find very soon that Allah subhanaw taala will prove to you again and again that you are not in control. And the Ogden is humility and humbleness the servant of Allah in His humility and humbleness admits to this reality, that I'm not in control. That's a part of being an addict. I don't control how my kids respond to me. I don't control what happens at work and there are things I do control I'm going to work hard there. That's what hope this we're hope comes in. That I'm going to do the best I can when I can do as for Allah subhanahu wa Tada accepting our drawers and not accepting them.

00:24:31--> 00:24:54

This is where we have to have trust this worth of work will comes in the work will is knowing that Allah subhanahu wa taala will has destined for us what he has destined out of our control. Our response is to do our best. And then what will is to know that Allah heard you and then we'll take care of what's next. That's the luck.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

So whether you have a child today or not, whether you're terminally ill

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

are not the what will is knowing that Allah put me in this situation, I give it my best. So now I'm just going to trust a lot. Whether it ends one way or another, that's my reliance on Allah.

00:25:14--> 00:25:24

I was reading the ayat of the Quran that everyone commonly quotes regarding Tawakkol you guys know what I am talking about? Which one

00:25:26--> 00:25:34

Yeah, read I will make a token on Allah He, for her husband, whoever relies on Allah, Allah will suffice that person.

00:25:36--> 00:25:43

He gave away my my short reflection. Anyone know the context of those verses? It's divorce.

00:25:45--> 00:26:09

Because when a lady is divorced, she feels very lonely and sad. And not just a lady anyone. When you go through marital breakdown, that really might just be rock bottom. A person is really sad and then and then the muscle of fat azote comes in, then Allah brings it there again. The muscle have Taqwa. So first is the muscle after the issue of divorce. And then the issue of

00:26:11--> 00:26:50

the husband dying comes in. In both cases, there's loneliness there, there's sorrow there, there's grief there. As someone who has come out of a relationship, or almost got into a relationship and things didn't work out, talk to someone who tried multiple times to enter into a relationship. And each time it doesn't work. And every time it doesn't work, there is another whisper of shaytaan. The same thing happens with work as well. outside of the context of marriage, you apply for a job you try once you try Second, try third, and you keep failing or, or university applications. Think of it in any any dynamic that you'd like where it fits you. And you keep trying, trying to have a child.

00:26:50--> 00:27:05

You're trying, trying, trying and it's not happening, and it's not happening. And then at some point, every time you fail a little bit, or you or you don't, when I fail, I mean, you don't achieve the intended goal. Shaitaan comes with little whisper, you suck.

00:27:07--> 00:27:08

You're not worthy.

00:27:09--> 00:27:13

Look at that person over there. They're holding a child, look how much God loves them.

00:27:14--> 00:27:52

God could give them he could have given you he didn't give you. The only logical reason is because you really suck. So you shake it off. No, no, no. But then shutdown comes again. And he comes again, and he comes again. And this is where Thorkild comes in. That you hold on to that rope and say you can withdraw all you want. But I've learned to grow beyond your whispers. No whisper of shaytaan can hold me down because my trust isn't a lot are made you have to work on on a wife or husband. Allah is saying trust me, and just believe in me, and I will take care of it all.

00:27:54--> 00:27:59

I think one of the my favorite stories when it comes to this issue of trust and

00:28:01--> 00:28:10

hoping Allah subhanaw Wattana is another facade that we covered in Ramadan, a book the lava Jeremy's, if you remember where

00:28:11--> 00:28:47

it's along, it's an interesting narration. This person who was a soldier, he said I was patrolling the coastal area of Egypt. I shared this with some, by the way in the Ramadan series that we just did. If anyone wants to hear the whole story, you should go there. I read the narration and I tried to cover it in as much detail as possible. The summary of the story is that there is a soldier who says I was, you know, patrolling the Muslim frontier in Egypt. And while I was there, I saw that in the dune sand dunes, there was a tent. So I went close to the tent to see what was there and I noticed there was a guy in the tent and the guy was an amputee, his his arms and legs were chopped

00:28:47--> 00:29:00

off. He was lying there. And then he was whispering something. So I got a little close to whisper to hear him. And the guy was saying, he was praising Allah subhanho wa Taala for the many blessings and bounties of Allah on him.

00:29:01--> 00:29:20

The guy was blind. His arms and legs were amputated he couldn't hear properly and the guy was pleasing Allah. So this guy who was identified in the DOI as Abdullah, he says that I said to the person to sit down while they come introduce themselves himself and then he said to him, buddy, what exactly are you praising Allah for? Like, look how miserable you are? Did he didn't say that, you know?

00:29:22--> 00:29:24

So that person said

00:29:25--> 00:29:38

that if Allah subhanho wa Taala instructed the sky to strike a bolt of lightning at me I'd be worthy of it. If Allah commanded the earth to swallow me I was worthy of it if Allah commanded the ocean to drown me I was worthy of it.

00:29:40--> 00:29:51

However, I continue to think Allah because even though he took everything away he gave me the tongue and there's this tongue I can do the cut and sugar of Allah. I have everything I need in this thing. Yeah.

00:29:53--> 00:29:55

Master to little bit Illa chakra

00:29:57--> 00:30:00

guy was blown away. So the old man

00:30:00--> 00:30:20

answered to him, I need a favor. I have a son who takes care of me, feeds me washes me. He hasn't come home in a few days go look for him. So he said, Okay, so he went to look for him. And he found a man by that description the old man gave him lying in between the dunes. His body had been torn apart by animals.

00:30:22--> 00:30:30

He was like, how do I go back and tell this guy so he went back anyway, he said as salaam alaikum. He starts off his conversation by saying,

00:30:31--> 00:30:33

Do you know of a new body sit down?

00:30:34--> 00:30:44

I said, Yes. He said, Accra, Mara Lee, I'm a human Nebby who was more honorable to Allah you are you? He said a urs.

00:30:45--> 00:31:01

He said that Allah subhanho wa taala. Test him in his family and wealth. You said yes. Okay, for what? You know. When Allah tested him, what was his response? He said, Why did Abu Shakira and Avi then dark era, he was in a state of gratitude and obedience to Allah.

00:31:02--> 00:31:06

So then he said to him that you know, that son of yours that you told me to look for?

00:31:07--> 00:31:08

He's dead.

00:31:10--> 00:31:14

So he began to cry. And he said Hamdulillah,

00:31:16--> 00:31:17

humbly,

00:31:18--> 00:31:23

humbly, Allah, that Allah did not give me a child who was a governor.

00:31:24--> 00:31:25

He was a Muslim.

00:31:26--> 00:31:33

And he loved me in a way that was appropriate for him and he took care of me. So I'm pleased with him and I'm happy. I'm okay.

00:31:34--> 00:31:37

And then a few moments later, he let out a loud,

00:31:38--> 00:31:41

loud sound like, like a shriek. And he died.

00:31:43--> 00:31:46

So the soldiers is like, man, what again?

00:31:48--> 00:31:49

This guy is dead, too.

00:31:50--> 00:32:00

He was so heartbroken. He took the guy's body, wrap them up in a sheet took them outside on the road. He sat there next to the body. He was just crying. Scott was crying and crying.

00:32:02--> 00:32:21

For people were passing by the road, they saw this man they said what's going on? said Well, this guy died. Going through a lot right now. I need to bury him, but I just need to catch myself. They said Would you mind if we take a look? You said yes. So they removed the sheet and they saw his face and all four of them dive down to the body and begin to kiss his forehead.

00:32:22--> 00:32:43

And they said these were eyes that spent their night awake and obedience of Allah is the man that did not disobey Allah. He said to the people, do you know who he is? They said yes. Hala, Abu Colaba Jeremy Sahib nobis This is a student of our beloved ambassador to Allah one. He was a lover of of the Lebanon bus of the Allah one narrator, a book lover Jeremy

00:32:44--> 00:32:50

now when you look at this video via you see a man who this is toggle right here.

00:32:51--> 00:33:26

And it's an extreme case of the awkward but it's still awkward. This is what it looks like. You want to know what heavy lifters look like people want you to videos to see how much the heaviest man the heaviest lifters is that right? People look watch YouTube videos to see what's the most daring jump. So the guys jumping up Burj Khalifa. People see what's the most daring and you know, okay, what's the most daring bike ride mountain biking thing. So they have those Red Bull videos where the guys there's a whole video dedicated to these people think people are awesome. People are good something like this, where they bring all the weirdest and craziest things that people have done. You want to

00:33:26--> 00:33:31

know what spiritual heavy lifters look like go and read the stories of the MBR manual setup. That's the playlist for you.

00:33:33--> 00:33:39

That's the playlist of the spiritual heavy lifters their accomplishments not physical spiritual.

00:33:41--> 00:33:44

Their reliance on Allah subhana wa Tada was unwavering.

00:33:49--> 00:33:50

This lady may Allah reward her.

00:33:51--> 00:34:26

What I said made sense to her. And she started making blocks and she cried and cried and cried and cried and cried. And it was a joy and just seeing her being able to make that lie. The one thing that became clear to me is there are many people in this world that are smothered in that pain, and aren't able to make dua to Allah. Who do we tell? How do we speak of it? People will doubt us and our iman pain is very in a way the loneliness is real. But that's where the Quran speaks to you. With the Rooney study, Villa calm you can't talk to anyone just talk to me.

00:34:27--> 00:34:48

You're in pain, talk to me, jacobellis and I'm in the middle school. Bothy was an Eid Allah. He's making dua for the departure. He's still talking to Allah about the disappearance of his son decades later. I mean, the son was quite awesome, too. Good looking spiritual, righteous man say that I used to balance

00:34:50--> 00:34:52

in Neela editori high use of

00:34:53--> 00:34:59

I can still smell my son. He's not far away, Lola and to finally do all of the law

00:35:00--> 00:35:16

In Nicola, Valentina and Al Bashir who Allahu Allah, which He fought at level zero. Earlier today, one of the students asked in the q&a that What's the moment that you would like to go back to in time to witness if you had a time machine? You guys said that we weren't allowed to

00:35:17--> 00:35:26

use anything, or reference a moment in history related to the prophets, but if I wasn't given that stipulation, I would have probably said this.

00:35:27--> 00:35:34

I would have loved to go back in time and look at for them and Bushido Allahu Allah, what He fought the double seal.

00:35:35--> 00:35:36

I'd love to see that.

00:35:37--> 00:35:43

And then the other bodies. You guys know what that means? That when the person o'clock hidings came to jacobellis.

00:35:44--> 00:35:49

He took a garment of use of it, so I'm gonna put it on jacobellis rom space. And as I said, Richard

00:35:51--> 00:35:53

that's a moment worth seeing.

00:35:54--> 00:35:56

And his smile.

00:35:57--> 00:36:08

You know, that statement, LM Aquila come in the Alamo mean Allah He may Allah Allah Moon is his end result of the worker that I never gave up hope on Allah.

00:36:09--> 00:36:17

One of our other way he or she will Corolla who? Sujatha Bacala Yeah, but you heard that we aim in Kabul is to work with a central user Felisa

00:36:18--> 00:36:33

that when they arrive in Egypt, and now they're on their thrones and Yusuf Ali, Saddam sees the 11 stars and the sun and the moon all in front of him. And he says hi that we aim an oven, or the gyla Ha ha ha. Allah always fulfills His promise. It's all true.

00:36:35--> 00:36:52

Your story will only be known once it plays out. And your story doesn't end today. It doesn't end with yesterday's pain. It continues. And every day there's a new lesson that comes to you that is necessary for you because Allah is preparing you for your greatness.

00:36:53--> 00:36:59

The atheists claims that if God doesn't give me now I'm going to throw a tantrum and stop believing in him. Like a kid

00:37:00--> 00:37:09

throwing a tantrum at Walmart when the parents refuse to buy them candy. This is the example of the atheists mama I don't love you anymore.

00:37:11--> 00:37:16

Mama you don't love me if you do love me. You have to buy me Airheads

00:37:18--> 00:37:34

and Allah subhanaw taala saying okay, buddy, why don't you stay in the car? Stay in the car let me get you to the car and get you saved where you actually need to go you actually don't love me Mama you don't love me I'm alasa Allah's wanna sing okay buddies. Oh man. You can say all you want that I don't love you my level and stuff.

00:37:35--> 00:37:38

I created you. I gave you imagine

00:37:39--> 00:37:48

all your friends at school can tell you that your mom and dad hate you all they want to those people are not going to be there after you die. Your mom's going to be at your grave every week.

00:37:50--> 00:37:54

Your Rob is going to be with you at the time of your death and what's beyond that

00:37:55--> 00:37:58

all the other people will disappear. cease to exist

00:38:02--> 00:38:06

in this regard, one of the most powerful is in the Quran.

00:38:08--> 00:38:09

Allah, Allah

00:38:10--> 00:38:12

Kulu Manali have fun

00:38:14--> 00:38:25

everyone upon it shall perish they'll all disappear all the sounds all the thoughts all the ideas all the inspirational motivational speakers all couldn't do Manali

00:38:26--> 00:38:27

just nothing.

00:38:29--> 00:38:31

Will you ever call what you hope you can do?

00:38:33--> 00:38:57

But Allah, nothing but La Ilaha illa Allah. That's the heartache of all of the human life in existence in one statement, called Illuminati have fun. We have a call with Rob because we live in from La Ilaha. And then in the back, there is no God there is no existence there is no permanence is Allah but with Allah subhanaw taala.

00:38:59--> 00:39:01

So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to

00:39:02--> 00:39:10

help us develop the correct perspective about our rub. He taught us that Allah azza wa jal says an indolent yupptv

00:39:11--> 00:39:14

I am to my servant as my servant precedes me.

00:39:15--> 00:39:19

Why am I here? You know that Karani and every time he remembers Me, I'm with him.

00:39:20--> 00:39:25

In Dakar on NFC, the character goofy enough, see if he remembers me in his heart, I remember him and mine.

00:39:27--> 00:39:36

Were in the Quran, aefi mother in the cartoon, female and hiraman and if he remembers Me, and I gather and I remember him in a gathering way better than whoever it is that you're sitting with these days.

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

You can't

00:39:41--> 00:39:45

outperform Allah and anything, let alone in the journey of love.

00:39:46--> 00:40:00

You can't be more loyal than Allah. You can't be more kind than Allah. It's impossible that a person has hope and Allah and Allah azza wa jal turns that person away. This is my

00:40:00--> 00:40:01

had ravencon

00:40:04--> 00:40:11

similarly in the new isa Muslim Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said and this new idea is narrated from the Prophet of Allah just days before he passed away,

00:40:12--> 00:40:13

la

00:40:14--> 00:40:22

La Jolla Bit ly azza wa jal, that should not approach you should not come to you until you have fixed your affairs and

00:40:24--> 00:40:25

until you're in the right frame of mind,

00:40:26--> 00:40:33

then you outlaw all those days and even for a single second I doubted you that was the biggest mistake of my existence. I'm sorry.

00:40:35--> 00:40:36

Never allow me to doubt you again.

00:40:38--> 00:40:43

Never put me in a place where I'm in to thoughts of who we are Allah I love you and that is the truth.

00:40:45--> 00:40:47

That's in the sea now.

00:40:48--> 00:41:02

For banana Domina. Alina is Sankara urban hola to hum in narmala you off one. Forgive us well fildena Pardon us? What hum na Anta Molana fun sunnah common caffine

00:41:04--> 00:41:10

ask Allah for forgiveness for those moments and beg for him to allow eemaan to be firm in your heart.

00:41:14--> 00:41:15

If you aren't able to

00:41:17--> 00:41:18

balance Allah's

00:41:19--> 00:41:32

mercy in your heart properly and allow it to take its roots, you cannot reach merhaba you can't reach love. You can't have a relationship just based off of fear. It doesn't exist.

00:41:33--> 00:41:47

It's torture, it's abuse. And you're doing it to yourself. It's because Allah's Mercy is there you're just refusing to acknowledge it. So Allah subhanaw Medina, he tells us that well Mount Abu can be the law Milena Vidya your rub will never do wrong to you.

00:41:49--> 00:41:58

That Allah subhanaw taala is telling us there is no sin of yours that is beyond your Allah. Yeah, you got the Alladhina sort of wider emphases in LA takana to morality Allah.

00:42:03--> 00:42:08

So this year, my friends, is the discussion that I wanted to have today on hope.

00:42:10--> 00:42:14

Make dua to Allah every day that he blesses you with meaningful hope.

00:42:15--> 00:42:27

Remember that hope? Raja only carries any weight, if it is preceded by the correct means that make you worthy of Allah.

00:42:29--> 00:42:38

The analogy we gave is like the farmer who fulfilled all the tasks on the checklist, and now is just waiting for the harvest to come in.

00:42:39--> 00:42:43

This isn't a job that waiting of that person after doing everything, that's our job, that's hope.

00:42:44--> 00:42:53

You can't be negative. Otherwise, if you're just negative, then nothing's going to come out of it. If a person is in fear that they're going to fail before they even start their business, will they be able to do with each other?

00:42:55--> 00:43:35

Yes or no? No, they can do the job. You have to have hope. You have to have ambition. You have to believe that I can do it. I can do it. I can do it. But it can't be wishful. Your financial model can't just be flawed, and then you're hoping to become a millionaire. That won't work either. Don't let hope overcome you. And similarly likewise, don't let * on and whisper any thought into your mind that your Lord has abandoned you. For Allah azza wa jal says to the Prophet of Allah. Now at dacapo Columna Allah your Lord has not abandoned you. Well, not Allah eight Madiba and neither is your Lord angry at you. Yeah Allah then why are you testing? When an asset at the height of luck I

00:43:35--> 00:43:39

mean and Allah, your reward will be seen on the day of harvesting just wait

00:43:41--> 00:43:49

when a sofa yoke Do you got to book a photographer or your Lord will give you in such portions in such a handsome beautiful way that it will please you?

00:43:50--> 00:44:12

You are a survivor. This is not your first challenge in life. Let me show you the Gaya team and our every time you are tested in life you have to remember that your Allah was there for you and giving up on Allah. First of all, it's not even a possibility but it's not even an option. Where are you going to go? I stopped with alarm and thought is just terrific. Where would we go?

00:44:13--> 00:44:44

Turn back to ourselves. Look at the human world and see how that's landed people. Go to another God stop for a lot. I'm just talking. I'm just saying it. Right in the living room in dunya. Allah Allah Hanako do Baba even go to another god what are they going to? Do they kind of mimic a fly when I wish them or would I forget one god if all the gods that claim to be God that people have attributed any divinity towards if they all gathered together, forget about creating the sophisticated world we're in Allah azza wa jal is saying lejana who

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

they couldn't make one fly. And then Allah ups the challenge even further. While he is still homeless. Dubai was shaken nice then pick a woman. Forget about creating the fly of the fly were to take one thing from them they are not

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

capable of even taking it back. Or even preventing that from happening, less than two women vying for toilet well not.

00:45:09--> 00:45:21

The seeker and the one being sought are both weak in this equation, the better equation got a law degree in Allah Allah can we universities, the better equation is connect yourself to Allah.

00:45:23--> 00:45:43

And a sign of your growth in spirituality and how your how you know that your hope and Rajab are balanced and are going from being a hub to not becoming a mom. And that the flight is beginning is that you stop focusing on outcomes. You don't focus on that.

00:45:45--> 00:45:46

You just focus on what you can do.

00:45:47--> 00:46:03

So the believer then finds themselves in an easy scenario, when you start focusing on outcomes and start focusing on what you can do, then you begin to realize that there are easy things sub sugar liquor, okay. carabiner

00:46:04--> 00:46:19

what's left, when the time is right, your patient, when the time is right, you do a lot of sugar while expressing your sub and sugar. You engage in the words of God vicar, and then eat and drink and enjoy yourself. There's nothing left in the world.

00:46:21--> 00:46:23

Now, if you look at it from this lens

00:46:27--> 00:46:30

things don't seem as complicated they become simple.

00:46:31--> 00:46:57

The mind of the human being is throwing you in 100 scenarios, a million different scenarios. You can get obsessed with the scenarios and get lost in those scenarios or you can understand times the good times or easy times or difficult times are good sugar How do I do sugar dhikr of Allah Octavius salata, Lydia curry and Fela Hakuna couldn't have done Shura, remember, establish the law for my remembrance, the Prophet of Allah was asked why do you praise the law he said to be grateful to Allah There you go.

00:46:58--> 00:47:07

And then on the other hand, in terms of difficulty, I have to do sub How do I do so but is there any novice somebody was salah, working with Salah delivery

00:47:10--> 00:47:18

seek assistance from Allah is to you know, be somebody with patience or Salah and through prayer. And again I just told you why is Salah establish

00:47:20--> 00:47:22

for the remembrance of Allah your circles done?

00:47:24--> 00:47:28

Imam because it is genius. Obviously stating the obvious here

00:47:31--> 00:47:40

in the area before the chapter of cofund Raja before he engaged in the chapter of hope and the chapter right before it is on Southern and sugar

00:47:44--> 00:47:58

so eloquent, so appropriate that if you figured out Southern and sugar, hopefully that will become very easy. And then after hoping he began he then leads towards the end of his book.

00:47:59--> 00:48:01

It's a beautiful,

00:48:02--> 00:48:38

beautiful piece played with that will conclude it's almost all the time now allows me to accept and granted still 50 dominant on what we learn that he wants us with these wings and allow us to attain flight may draw us in near and never allow us to be skeptical. allow our hearts to always be loyal to us Reliance ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada save us from those dark moments of shock when he blessed us with eternal you can and may that you can be with us in our moments of difficulty and our moments of joy are set along with that on us and I'm humbled ceremony

00:48:45--> 00:48:48

any questions? I can take a question
