Many people today find themselves incapacitated, they find themselves in a situation where we can't move forward, or we don't know how to move forward. And oftentimes, when you talk to the person, you come to the realization that this person is actually stuck in their mind. So, the thoughts are telling them that you cannot progress in life, because if you had to do X, Y and Zed, then your life will not go well because it will fail. So they have been deceived by their own thoughts. And a lot of times, this is based on experience from the past, but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has given us the remedy and the solution to this and he says it's time Billa wala attaches seek the help

00:00:57--> 00:01:53

So you see people sit and say because I failed in the past in this mission of mine, then I am going to fail in the future as well. What is Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saying that in Tahoe Baba Shavon

00:01:53--> 00:02:43

if saying if I had done this and that, then it would have been a different result that opens the door of Satan. What does that tell you? These thoughts that are in your mind are from Shavon he doesn't want you to progress. He doesn't want you to do well in life. So he is convincing you that your past determines your future Yet Allah subhanahu wa taala He promises us that if we make that effort, if we make that effort, then he will provide he is the sustainer ultimately the effort is ours. And the sustainer is Allah Allah is that you will Jalan you see in the beginning of that hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam begins with a minimal Kawi you hi you know a Hubbard

Illa Allah him in a minute by Eve. The strong believer is closer and more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than the weak believer, but he couldn't inhale and in every one there is goodness, but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala Why would you Eman is strong then you know that I am going to take the decision and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala for either as and cannot along so when you have decided then trust in Allah subhanahu wa taala So place your trust in Allah Hara bool is that you will Jellal don't allow Shaban to enter your head and tell you that your life has been bad so it will be bad.

00:03:54--> 00:04:41

So if he thinks goodness for hate them, they will be goodness or even wanna be shown. And if he thinks there is evil, then they will be evil. So if you think that my future is going to be bad, whatever I do and embark on I'm going to fail, then you will fail because that is the thought that you have of Allah subhanho wa taala. So let your Eman be strong and understand that for me is to try to make the effort and Allah will pave the path forward. You see in another Hadith Ibn Abbas Radi Allahu Anhu says come to halvah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I was behind the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Farrakhan in the world Limoux kilkelly Man. So, then he told Ibn Abbas

00:04:41--> 00:04:59

that I will teach you some words for the Lucha funk, protect Allah subhanho wa Taala and He will protect you. So someone may ask, How do I protect Allah Allah is that you will, He is the protector, protect the commandments of Allah Subhana Allah

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

What Allah stay away from his prayer ambitions, and He will protect you. What do we do? We try by every other avenue to attain success besides coming to that which Allah has commanded us to do. So when Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us to pray, and he says, Seek help with prayer. We are not to be found that prayer, you're a human being. Man was Torino, new southern he was salah, Oh, you who have believed help yourselves with Salah and help yourselves with suberb patience. Why does somebody come first because in order for you to establish that salah, you need to have the patience to do so. I am busy in my business day. There are deals transactions going on. I'm making money here, but I hear

00:05:56--> 00:06:47

the Adom Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, am I going to at the bare minimum, placed my prayer mat on the ground and render my prayer for the sustainer? Or am I going to ignore it? That is a test from ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada. You need several patients upon that prayer to establish it. And when you do, then the Allah subhanahu Attallah will open up the doors. You see, the poet says that I hope we're in the same yield Rosati is it that you wake up for sustenance at eight o'clock it's time for work we ready for work we're going to work what's another morning the Sahelian was lucky and you sleep when it is time for the sustainer when they started the Anima masala Who do you not know that which you are

running into words be here didn't let the time DANIDA is with the hands are in the hands of the one whom you refuse to get up for? Allahu Akbar. If we just think of that for a moment. We wake up for work on time. Why? Because my job is paying me I need to go to work but we forgot the sustainer a few hours before why didn't we wake up for him? The sustenance was in his hands. It was for him to decide whether he would give it to us or not. But we forgot we abandoned it. And we our iman was so weak that we said we will pray Lita Allahu Akbar, so we need to help ourselves with that salah is the inner Sabri or Salah Allah subhanahu wa taala in fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:35--> 00:08:25

continues in that hadith for the learner. If only Allah had to do to Jack, protect Allah, protect his commandments and stay away from his prohibitions, and he will be in front of you. What does this mean? This means that Allah subhanho wa Taala will be with you, helping you assisting you protecting you, and you will always have the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala why you are with his commandments. You know, one Hadith could see in which Allah subhanho wa Taala that Allah subhanahu wa taala tells us on the blessed lips of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mintaka Robert eladia Sheba Ron Tucker Rob to La havila The one who comes close to me a hand span I will come close to him half an

00:08:25--> 00:09:16

arm's length woman Dakar Hua, ILA euro and Takara to Isla Yi BA and the one who comes half an arm's length close to me, I will come close to him by a full arm's length woman attorney mushy and I tell you to how to weather and the one who comes to Me walking, I will come to him running. Allahu Akbar. When you think of that hadith, your one prayer after having not established prayer for years is a huge step, take that step, make that prayer and Allah subhanaw taala will move towards you. Allah subhanho wa Taala will be with you the assistance of Allah subhanahu wa taala will be there. You see, when you are walking in a direction and someone who is running towards you, then who is more

00:09:16--> 00:09:48

intent and more wanting of meeting the other. It is the one who is running because he can't wait to meet the person. The hadith tells you Holman attorney machine I tell you to Hawala, the one who comes to me working I will come to him running Allah subhanho wa Taala will be close to you when you take a small step towards him. So take that step and don't let the devil get into your mind. If Allah if Allah tells you do to Jack.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

It for Lila had to do to Jack protect Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will find him in front of you. You see that hadith

00:10:00--> 00:10:56

tells us whether we determine whether we determine it uma to Allah Aenean Farooq cabbie che in LEM Nian Farooq in Vichy in Catawba, who love hulak. And if the Ummah, the Nation of Islam, all of them from the beginning of time to the end of time, they were together to plot and plan for you to help you to benefit you. They would not benefit you, except if Allah has written it for you. Whether we determine who Allah and Mia will rule can be shaped in Lamido Ruka in Vichy, in Khattab Avila, who I like, and if they were to all gather to harm you, then they would not harm you. Except if Allah had written it for you or against you. If Allah subhanho wa Taala had written that against you it will

00:10:56--> 00:11:44

happen otherwise it will not happen. What is the other thing that people say? If I do something, then this one will plot against me. That one will bring my plan down, that one already is doing the same. I will not benefit. The benefit is with Allah subhanho wa Taala The hum is with Allah subhanho wa Taala Why do you feel the plot of mankind when you have the lord of mankind with you, Allahu Akbar, when you understand that that it is written by Allah subhanahu Attallah it will happen then you go forth in life, fearless, you don't care anymore. Why because if it is written for me it is written, I will make the effort and for Allah has to provide Luffy ITIL Aquila moi Jaffa to sort of

00:11:45--> 00:12:20

the pills have been lifted and the ink has dried meaning everything is written from the beginning of time to the end of time, everything is written, whether you are going to receive that million dollars is written by Allah bullets that you will general whether you are going to receive it and lose it is written by Allah subhanahu wa taala whether you are going to become a rich man or stay a poor man is written by Allah subhana wa Tada. So for you, from a human beings perspective, is to look at your life like an empty canvas, and then to pick up the

00:12:22--> 00:12:43

brush of life and paint on there. So do as much as you can, and work hard. And then leave it to Allah Allah bless that you will learn in the words of a wise man, do your best, and to Allah, leave the rest, do your best, and to Allah leave the rest. You know, one thing I'd like to highlight at the end.

00:12:44--> 00:13:33

When people plot and plan against you understand something that plot and plan will only go back and backfire against them. Allahu Bucha is that you will JLL promises us this Wallah, he could macro say or Ellerbee early, and the evil plot will only backfire on those who have plotted it out. Initially you find that these people have done something to me and I've lost out perhaps you've lost a business deal or they have come in between your marriage or they have done something do you know that that evil plot lie a hippo Ellerbee? Actually, it will only go and backfire on them and it will come back on them. So don't worry about what people will do to you forget about them. And these are

00:13:33--> 00:14:01

the two main reasons that I have found people will sit and say I can't and I won't. And perhaps I will fail. Forget about all of that is time biller who Allah touches seek the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala and don't incapacity to yourself by telling yourself all of these thoughts and when you receive them when you get these thoughts, we're in the oven Kameena shame upon Enos. First time Ben.

00:14:02--> 00:14:53

And when you receive a poking from the devil, when he comes and he provides you pokes you he whispers to you, he tells you something, then seek the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala against Him, seek refuge in Allah subhanho wa Taala against the Shavon the condemned in that hadith, I left out a portion and in that portion Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that if you seek either stand to fester in Billa when you seek the help, then seek the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala when you seek help, then seek the help of Allah subhanahu Attallah what we do today, we go to every single person that we know that can help us we ask them perhaps at times we even beg them but we

00:14:53--> 00:14:59

forget to knock on the door of Allah subhanahu wa taala we forget to raise our hands up to Allah Allah bless

00:15:00--> 00:15:33

that you will forget about the people and rely upon Allah subhanahu Attallah when you seek help, then seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala he is the provider even those people will only help you if Allah subhanho wa Taala allows it. So forget about them. Ask Allah subhana wa Tala and he will send in miraculous ways. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us all. And may Allah Allah will is that he will General Grant us the man that gives us the ability to move forward in life. I mean, what have you done in hamdulillahi rabbil aalameen
