has an either sheet
of BS similar to ours.
We send C'mon subhana wa tada for having gathered us here once again. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to raise us amongst the MBR alayhi wa Salatu was salam, and those who are conscious of him,
or pseudo la sala, he will send them lead an extremely difficult life. He was born an orphan without a father. Once he was in the womb of his mother,
his father had passed away.
And not very long after he was born, his mother passed away as well.
And then his grandfather began to look after him. And when his grandfather took care of him, he also passed away.
And his uncle.
He took care of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam for some time, and then he passed away as well. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not have a normal childhood, where a person lives with his two parents, and they bring him up, they raised him until he gets into adulthood. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam suffered all of these losses at the beginning of his life.
And as he moved on, and he began to progress in life,
he became known as a surgical amine, the truthful and trustworthy, even though he didn't have a normal upbringing. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him
this was something very heavy, this was something very burdensome issue. Because Allah subhanahu wa taala says Lower Manhattan, Erna Allah Japan. Now.
If you if we were to reveal the sport on upon a mountain, you would have seen it fearful and trembling from the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was granted the sport and the sport was revealed upon him.
So it was something very heavy. And this is why we find that we rushed to his wife Khadija being toyed with Dolby a loved one Hmm. And he begins to tell her some Maloney, he was trembling, he was frightful. He was scared of what he had seen. And he's telling his wife Cover me cover me. Why, because it is something that is abnormal. It is something that is strange. He went through all of this, he remained resilient, he remained strong.
And Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam began to call his people to Islam, telling them that worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone is the only one worthy of worship, he began to call them. And they began to reject his message, they began to call him saw beyond that you are a person who has turned away from the religion of your forefathers and you are a liar. This is the man whom they knew was solid, it could mean the truthful and trustworthy. So he was known as this before, and all of a sudden, they began to call him a liar, a magician. All sorts of names are pseudo lasala. While he was settled and remained firm, he continued with his belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he
continued to call the people to Islam until they pushed him into one value with the few people that had accepted his message. And he was living in that valley. He was they were all excommunicated. They could not trade with the people of Mecca, they could not deal with them. Some of them were blocked off and cut off from their family members. It was very difficult for them.
And finally the siege was lifted. The sanctions were lifted completely, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam began to call the people once again he is calling them to Islam.
And he found that there was not much joy in Mecca. So we decided to embark on a journey to die. And as he is walking, he walked to Paris
On foot, as he is walking to five,
he moves up into the mountains because anyone who's visited five will know that it is a very high region, very high up in the mountains. So he's walking, struggling getting too far if he has this ambition is in his heart, he has this opening in his heart that yes, my people have rejected me. My people have refused my message. But let me go to these people, perhaps they will accept the message. He gets there. And he speaks to the leaders and the leaders of Paris. Not only do they reject his message, but they send and set the urchins of the city upon him, pelting him one by one, they were pelting him until his shoes are completely clogged with, with with blood, and he is moving. And as
he is moving, he comes out of the city. He leaves that city
and he returns to Makkah, and when he returns to Macau, the harm continues. The people continue to worry him continue to harm him, but he remains resilient. He remains strong. He remains firmly on his faith and his belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So they continue to harm him and worry him and disturb him and prosecute and torture his companions. Until Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he announced amongst the companions that you can now go to Madina munawwara and they began to make you jealous they began to leave the hometown because they were being persecuted for the fact that they uttered a shadow Allah ilaha illallah wa shadow, Mohammed Abdul soon, they begin to move to
Madina, munawwara and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam waited for most of his companions to leave. And once they had left, he then visits Abu Bakr Siddiq all the Allahu anhu and he tells him in Allah and the Navy bill Hello Jimmy Makkah that Allah subhanho wa Taala has finally allowed me to live Mecca. So Ababa Casa de colo the Allahu anhu immediately says, that we are pseudo Allah is it companionship that you require a messenger of Allah Subhana Allah and the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he takes Abu Bakr Siddiq only Allah Allahu anhu. They move and they began to as they move, they get to a cave known as La though, and they spent three nights in this cave three
days and three nights in this case, because the Cofer of Polish Not only did they try to murder him before he left, but as he was leaving, they literally chased after him and they were looking for him. So he found refuge in this cave. And he's standing he's staying there with abubaker of Sydney called the a loved one who three days and three nights passed. And during this time the disbelievers came so close to finding him and above across the Columbia Law one that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu says that we could see the thief and if they were to look underneath just by where they fit what they would have seen us. So he turns to Rasulullah sallallahu Why don't you send them in? He says
he's worried. These people are so close to us. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he turns to Abu Bakr Siddiq. I love your loved one. And he says
don't fear Don't be sad. Don't believe in Allah mana. Indeed Allah subhanho wa Taala is with us. And in the Hadith mentioned in Sahih al Bukhari and Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam turned to him and said, Now well no COVID-19 Allah.
What is your fourth? What do you think about two people? Allah subhanahu attallah is the third of them.
So he told his companion.
Don't grieve. Don't be sad. Let's stop for a moment and take a look at the circumstance and situation that these words were being uttered in. They were about to be caught by the co founder of Malaysia. They were fearful well, Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allah and who was scared that perhaps they will catch us now and they will definitely execute us they were fearing for their lives. Yet Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, then don't
wait does a lot more. I think he will send them say this because he knew that Allah subhanho wa Taala is with him. And in the same manner My dear brothers and sisters in Islam, there is no need for us to breathe in our lives, regardless of the circumstances and the situations and the difficulties that we go through. Allah subhanho wa Taala is with us. This is the attitude
Have a believer, regardless of the problems he has, he knows that Allah subhanahu attallah is with him. Allah, Allah, Allah Allah says, What are you and don't be weak.
And don't be sad when you are alone. You are the superior in quantum meaning if you are believers in Allah subhanho wa Taala you don't want sadness in your life you don't want sorrow, dejection, difficulty, then well, the difficulty won't come but the sorrow and the dejection that comes with it, if you are believers in what will is that you will general that sadness will go, that sorrow will go that depression will go completely.
When Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about sadness,
then it is always mentioned with a negative connotation, it is always mentioned with a negative before it, Allah subhanho wa Taala in this very verses in Latin, don't be sad. And this means that a believer has no reason to be sad in his life. And when we talk about sadness, then we mean this is the sadness that overcomes the person to the extent that he cannot continue with his life anymore. He is depressed, he is sorrowful, he said to the extent that he can't continue he can't move forward in his life. That is from Shane Klein. That is most definitely from shavon. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the manager Mina Shea taniya Sunil Alina, indeed secrets that people hold private
conversations with evil formed in them. Leah junella Dena Amman, which is from shavon, for the for the believers to become sad, when you are sad what happens, you become vulnerable. And when you are vulnerable, when a funds attack comes on to you because now he knows that I can influence this person, but a person who believes in Allah subhanho wa, taala and Medina, those who believe whether it will be through email, and boom, boom, boom, and they did not mix their belief with any cultural shift conifa hula, and
then you will have complete and total security, peace, happiness, you find that the man has the most difficult life ever, but he's calm, he's peace, he's at peace. He's serene, and he is going through life sailing through life, or pseudo lasala while he went through the most difficult of circumstances, we know that he had the most strong Eman ever. There is nobody in this world that could have had that could have strongly imagine Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was tested again and again and again and again. After he left that cave, and he continued to Madina, munawwara he suffered the loss of his children. He saw all of his children die in front of him
before he passed away. When except for Fatima about the loved one.
Ibrahim Ibrahim his son,
he had actually suffered a difficult condition where he was breathing, and his breathing became shallow. And the people began to fear that he was losing his life. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was informed he came and he saw that he was actually in the throes of death. So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lifted him up. He looks at him. And he says yeah, about him. And his eyes begin to tear. So we have Sahabi that was with him. He looks at him and he says, lm Hannah Ellington, Hannah and ibuka. Didn't you stop us from crime? So Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says, I did not stop you from crying when I can. And I hate to answer Oh, my God, he
says, but I have stopped you from doing too foolish and evil things. When a person dies, two voices that are uttered when a person dies.
It is the carrying of the clothes and the shouting the screaming of a person when a person screams and he will that is what I stopped you When I came here, but this is a mercy from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Obviously, it is normal for a person to become sad at times, but the sadness should not continue to the extent that it overtakes our lives. Also, lafer Allahu alayhi wa sallam cried at the loss of his son. Yes, it is normal. It is human to cry at the loss of someone close and near and dear to you. But when this has passed and the stage has gone, then remember that you should continue with your life. Oh sobre la sala. Why don't you tell him himself
went through the same circumstance, the same situation, but his life did not come to an end. When Maria Maria Salatu was salam, when through difficulty
in fact, firstly she took a job from her people she veiled herself away from the people move to the eastern region of the city. And when she moved to the eastern region of the city, she began to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, worshiping Him in Dora you know, all sorts of salah and liquor and remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala. She finds that an angel comes to her all of a sudden, and she begins to seek refuge from this angel pilot in the Roosevelt Walkman in Ukiah in quintet appear. So the angel tells her in NEMA and our pseudo bkv I had a lucky zakia that I am the messenger of your to give you a child that is pure. So she looks at him and
yet a man has not touched me How am I going to have a child yet a man has not touched me. So this angel tells her that that is your and when she had the pangs or you could say the labor pains. She moved to a palm tree and she was holding on to this palm tree. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says that she began to say yeah, let me move to herbal Ahava. I wish that I had died before this day you will come to know simmondsia and I had actually become forgotten into oblivion. Nobody knew of me. She began to wish that she didn't exist in the first place. Can you imagine she began to wish that she would die before that they came. And the angel comes to her and tells her friend
Danny Khadija Allah buki techies area, and the angel came and he called out to her that Do not be sad, do not grieve because the German Allah bukata kesariya you Allah has put in place a stream beneath you. And when she came to her her people Allison kind of who attalla saved her in the most amazing avoids the child that was in the plan began to speak. The child that was not even of speaking of the age wave he would speak, he began to speak and he cleared his name. He created the name of Maria Maria Salatu was Salam completely. Now what this teaches us is that we have no reason to be sad in our lives, so long as we believe in Allah subhanaw taala we believe in the last day we
believe in Mohammed Salah, why don't you sell them they know that Allah subhanahu Allah will not let us down.
Allah so kind of what Allah says in Medina call upon Allah, indeed those who say that Allah is Allah, who must accommo then we adopt the straight path. They are straight, steadfast on that straight path,
who must accommodate and
eager to Allah to have full well, that will be mela he can they descend upon such people that don't be sad, alert half who don't feel well? And don't be sad. What I'm sure will gentlemen let it continue to widen and give half the glad tidings of the gentlemen that you were promised. So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, the message is quite simple and quite straightforward, that let us worship Allah subhanho wa Taala cultivates the belief in our hearts and will lie he there will be nothing that will make us sad in this world. If we go through economic problems, we know that Allah subhanahu attallah is there for us. If we go through family problems, we know that Allah subhanahu
attallah is there for us. If we have lost our lives or we have lost family members of ours, then we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is there for us. So why should we be sad? We should actually be happy Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went through the most difficult time in his life. Yet he was one of the most happy of people can have a eulogy Boo Boo. Boo. He would love optimism, even though he went through so much difficulty. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the ability to understand and May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us happiness and may He remove the sadness from one in all i mean well Salalah who was allama
