00:00:27--> 00:00:28

During

00:00:36--> 00:00:37

a long lesson like this

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

one customer

00:00:43--> 00:00:44

of BSC, what advice

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

can

00:00:48--> 00:01:07

we find come up some kind of water either for having gathered us here today. And we all still have some kind of more data to surround us with the manner and to cause his mercy and His Sakina to descend upon us and to raise us with the MBR Allahu Salatu was Salam and those whom he has mentioned with him, I mean,

00:01:11--> 00:01:16

Musa alayhis salam wa sallam was pursued by him.

00:01:18--> 00:01:43

And he fled from this tyrant fleeing for his life. He was worried that if we're all caught up with him, not only would he kill him, but he would massacre the people that were with him. So he fled, and he moved into their own is in pursuit of Musa alayhis salam wa Salaam, and when he reaches the sea,

00:01:45--> 00:01:58

then the people that were was filled with was musala salatu wa sallam. He, they turned to Moosa, and they said in Ramadan Poon, indeed, we have been caught here

00:01:59--> 00:02:03

is behind us, the Z's in front of us, we've been caught.

00:02:05--> 00:02:24

And musar, Alina Salatu was salam, he says, Can most definitely not even be saved? Indeed, my God is with me and he will come to me. When you buy him, it was Salatu was set up, was brought to the fire.

00:02:25--> 00:02:39

And this huge fire that they took two weeks for them to kindle. They do two weeks kindling the fire in order to ensure that when they throw Ibrahim into it, he will die.

00:02:40--> 00:03:04

He was there, ready to sacrifice his life for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And here he turns to a love So kind of hautala and he says, Allah easy enough for me. It is said that gibreel alayhi salatu was Salam came down from Allah subhanho wa Taala and offered him Can I help you? And he says,

00:03:05--> 00:03:27

fella, as for you, I don't need your help. But as for Allah subhanho wa Taala, then he is enough for me. Yeah. Elena salatu salam, he loses not only one son, but two of his most beloved sons, those who are close to him, he loved them very much he loses them.

00:03:28--> 00:03:33

And the only words that come out from his mouth, in memory, with the

00:03:34--> 00:04:15

love, indeed I complain of my grief and my sorrow to Allah some kind of word to help us to use a father is Salatu was Salam betrayed by his own flesh and blood. He is thrown into a well left for the dead and his heart turns to a lump sum kind of water. Hello, are you Bollinger salatu salam is tested to the extent that he begins to lose his limbs except that he was tested with gangrene. All of his family members passed away, one after the other the wood didn't gone.

00:04:16--> 00:04:25

And he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala in the mess Danielle. Indeed, mom has touched me what

00:04:28--> 00:04:33

he mean, and you see for those who are merciful.

00:04:35--> 00:04:58

All of these MBR alayhi wa Salatu was salam o tested one after the other. Yet they were the closest of the people to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells us that the most tested of people are the MBR alima Salatu was Salam

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

Alaikum

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

And then those who are closest to them and those who are closest to them. But if we take a look at these people's problems, the MBR Alina salatu salam, Moosa, Elena Salatu was Salam is running away, fleeing for his life. You understand in salatu salam, we

00:05:19--> 00:05:23

actually leaves and he is in the belly of a whale.

00:05:24--> 00:05:44

He's imprisoned in the belly of a whale. Are you buying a Salatu was Salam is tested such that his limbs begin to fall off. These were the tests of the alayhi wa salatu wa salam O Allah subhanho wa Taala has most definitely promised to test us but our tests are much easier.

00:05:46--> 00:06:06

Take a look at the problems that we are going through today. They are only economic, I don't mean to make them look as smooth problems or the fact that it is very easy to go through them no because we don't have the character of the MVR alayhi wa Salatu was set up but we can aspire to the character.

00:06:10--> 00:06:14

Allah some kind of what Allah says, whether or not we will

00:06:16--> 00:06:16

be

00:06:21--> 00:06:27

we will most definitely test you with a little bit of fear. And we will test you with

00:06:28--> 00:06:30

one opposing meaning.

00:06:32--> 00:06:36

And we will test you with the decrease in wealth wealth.

00:06:39--> 00:07:09

And we will test you with the decrease in the souls the people around you will die and we will test you with a lack of your wealth your tomato, your fruits will become less. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says we're Bashir Sabine, and give glad tidings to those who are patient and Medina either outside but we must see them those who when a calamity befalls them call in

00:07:10--> 00:07:15

they say that indeed we belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala. What in

00:07:17--> 00:07:19

your own and to Him we will return.

00:07:21--> 00:08:13

It becomes very easy for a human being to begin to think like a muscle kind of what Allah has discarded him that Allah subhanho wa Taala has left you. You know, I've been going through these problems for a long time. I can't take it any longer. I don't know what is going on. But the believer has a different attitude. When Musa alayhis salatu salam reached that see, did he say that? I've been cornered here and destroyed, I'm finished. No. In fact, when the people told him that you are surrounded, there is no way out for you. When he says in America, B, C and D indeed My love is with me, He will guide me even when we cannot see a way out of our problems. Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:08:13--> 00:08:18

has a way for us, he will open up the doors He is the one who promises us.

00:08:22--> 00:08:39

EDA, as for the one who responds to he who is in a tight situation in the most dire of need, who is it that responds to him? Why actually forced to and he removes the evil wire

00:08:42--> 00:09:06

and he makes you successors on Earth. Not only does he remove that Eagle, but they will be ease after ease after that. And this is why among some kind of what Allah says in grocery use law in America, we use law indeed with hardship comes ease indeed with hardship comes ease. And you know if we take a look at these if

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

we're in Allah subhanho wa Taala says indeed with the hardship comes is the linguists and the those who understand the Arabic language, they tell us that when a specific noun is mentioned, like the man v hardship, and then it is repeated, it is meant to be one. But when an unspecific like he is, it is not pleased that Allah subhana wa Taala talks about but he is mentioned, then the second one counts as in second. So Allah also kind of puts addresses in memory to be useful, indeed with the hardship comes ease. And then he says again, indeed with the hardship comes ease. So with one hardship comes to ease, Allah subhanho wa Taala will most definitely open up the way

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

When musallam salatu salam uttered these words, and he said these beautiful, amazing words of trust and faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala. This see that is usually one split apart for Musa alayhis salam, Salam and his people to go through the various see that the people who were with him fought was a barrier became a reason for their tyrant to be destroyed.

00:10:36--> 00:10:41

And nobody knows the army of yours except for love. So

00:10:42--> 00:10:46

never lose hope and faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:49--> 00:11:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala in the ayah that we mentioned, he says what God He says, and my YouTube would move, as for the one who responds to who he who is in dire need. Now he says he who is in dire need, and he says a minute

00:11:10--> 00:11:11

when he calls

00:11:12--> 00:11:24

so if we want the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we want the assistance of Allah, so kind of what Allah we cannot see any way out of our problems. We've got to raise our hands up to a

00:11:27--> 00:11:50

medical MOOC, the King of kings, a person has this connection, live and direct with Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, today in the last so many days, we've been without internet, nobody has the internet. And everybody begins to twiddle their thumbs resisting thinking, what can I do here? No, I don't have a connection. People are staring at the wall. Others are trying to find something else to do.

00:11:52--> 00:11:53

But the connection was good. It

00:11:54--> 00:12:25

was always like, the connection was also kind of watered and never switched off. He always left that door open. And the lesson kind of what Tyler loves to be asked, and this is why the Arab poet says not just La Nina buena de Mahajan, don't ask the son of Adam do anything. What's that is that the Abu Abu jobu and ask the one whose doors never close the connection was always open. A La Jolla double

00:12:26--> 00:12:26

level.

00:12:30--> 00:12:44

Unless you kind of with Tyler, he becomes angry when you don't ask of him. Because you are there you are a believer in him you know his qualities, his might his power. And the son of Adam, he becomes angry when you ask.

00:12:45--> 00:13:01

So why you need the one who becomes happy when you ask of him, the one who holds the keys to success in his life, the one who holds the keys to your problems in your life. And you ask the one who can do nothing.

00:13:02--> 00:13:43

This is a human being he may become angry when you ask of him, he may become happy and he may if anything can happen, but also kind of what Allah is constantly happy with you with us for him. So ask Allah subhana wa Taala. This weapon that we have of Judah is a powerful weapon. And if we keep certain things in mind, when when we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala then our drama becomes accepted immediately. When a person purifies that which goes into his mouth, he ensures that which is halaal completely not a droplet of harm, then of the

00:13:45--> 00:14:09

job of purifying your food and you will become a person whom Allah subhanho wa Taala responds to immediately Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he mentioned in one of the ideas that a man leaves. When he goes out and he is actually traveling, he becomes completely full of dust he's tired, disheveled.

00:14:11--> 00:14:33

This man usually his door would be responded to because he's in a difficult situation when a person is traveling the door is responded to also lots of a lot more than says that this man he turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala he raises his hand so that he will Jelani and woman

00:14:34--> 00:14:37

and his food his woman

00:14:39--> 00:14:46

and his clothing is how long well who the prom and he was nourished with that which was the only

00:14:48--> 00:14:51

way we'll such a person receive at least

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

they didn't care about the bounds of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now all of the sudden you're beyond the oma

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

Oh my god, how will you get a response from a lesser kind of? How do you expect that response to come purely fine, you're earning your income.

00:15:10--> 00:15:52

Number two, Allah subhanho wa Taala loves to be asked again and again and again and again. When you go to a human being and you need something and you say, Hey, listen, you know, can you just do this a little bit for me? And you leave them. After a few minutes you come back, Hey, can you do this for me? You know, I need this done. After a few minutes, you come back again, he will tell you hey, what's wrong with you? You came to me just two minutes ago, I know that you want this done, all sorted out, don't worry. But when you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala in this manner, he loves it. He loves to hear from you again and again and again and again. Do you know why this is an

00:15:52--> 00:15:54

acknowledgement of the power.

00:15:56--> 00:16:47

You are acknowledging that Allah subhanho wa Taala he holds the keys to my problems so that we continue to ask and when you continue to ask Allah subhana wa tada again and again and again. And again. You will reach a point in your door, where the door itself will become more beloved to you that what you ask, the door itself will become more beloved to you than that which you are asking for. Because the taste of that becomes sweet. You'd love to be connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So you continue to ask Allah subhanho wa Taala again and again and again. And when you turn to Allah subhana wa Taala show him that he is the only one that has the

00:16:48--> 00:17:36

no body nobody can help you. Besides that you don't think that it is Allah subhanho wa Taala and then it is my employer. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala and then it is this man who will help me It is Allah subhana wa tada and my business will be able to solve my problems. No, it is only Allah Subhana Allah to Allah show him that you are broken in front of him and will love you will receive a response to you. These are the few words that I have to share with us today. And I hope it has served as a reminder to myself and yourselves for us never to lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and remember the dose of the Amelia Island was Salatu was Salam. O Allah subhana

00:17:36--> 00:17:45

wa tada says hatay upon rasuluh and Medina Mora who Matan also love, that the those who believed and the nebbia

00:17:47--> 00:18:25

they would wait for so long, until they would say when is when is the help of a mushroom coming? And Allah subhanho wa Taala is the response is profound. If we contemplate on this, what law he will never lose hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, in the law, he he indeed the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala is close. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us the ability to ask of him and May Allah Subhana Allah grant us that opening that we saw See, I mean, masala who said Nana Oba Mohammed he was happy he married
