Allah subhanho wa Taala links

00:00:04 --> 00:00:07

in the Quran he linked between

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

the prophetic miracle of Illustra will Mirage

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

with Mr. de la casa

00:00:18 --> 00:00:30

Subhana Allah the SRB Abdi he lay them in a mystery that haram illness to the lochsa Allah diva rock now hola hola Maria whom Anya Tina inna who who was semi arid Basia

00:00:31 --> 00:01:01

that indeed Exalted is He who took his servants from Resident haram to Mr. Opsahl, who surroundings we have blessed to show him of our signs, indeed his the hearing and the scene. In this verse, Allah subhanaw taala exalts himself Subhana Lydie he is removed from imperfection, subhana wa Tada. And he exalts the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:02 --> 00:01:12

because he says be Abdi, he his servants, he calls the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his servant, he ascribed the prophet to himself.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:20

And he exalts in its midst to the upside and all of the land around it.

00:01:21 --> 00:02:01

And all of this is in the context of the prophetic miracle of this role, mirage of Allah, Allah giving this miracle to our prophets, taking him in one night, from Mr. Haram in Mecca too much to the upside, and then snd with him up into the heavens, Lee Nordea whom in it now that he can see some of our science. This miracle is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. The gift of journeying through the heavens and the cosmos and witnessing the signs of Allah azza wa jal LaPadula Turabian Quran, Allah subhanaw taala says, Indeed, he saw the great signs of his Lord.

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

But this gift that Allah gives our Prophet did not come out of nowhere. This gift came in a time and then a context. It's happened after the year of sorrow. When Khadija the wife of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam passed away, and she was the strongest support of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she was the one that would spend all her money to support the Darwin to support our prophets of Allah where it was. And she was his emotional supporter.

00:02:33 --> 00:02:57

And she died. And in that same year, has unkillable pilot died, and his uncle was the one stopping price from harming the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was providing political protection for the Prophet salallahu Aeneas in them. It was the person who was helping him outside the home and inside the home, both of them died in the same year, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was struck with grief.

00:02:58 --> 00:03:15

And in this time, whenever we'll try that has now died. And Christ feels like they can feast on the Muslims. This is the same time when a man came behind our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and grabbed his cloak and began to choke him to try to kill him.

00:03:17 --> 00:03:23

And everybody's watching nobody's doing anything about it until Abu Bakr comes and starts to beat on the man on his back

00:03:24 --> 00:03:25

and saying,

00:03:27 --> 00:03:30

Are you gonna kill a man just because he says, My Lord is Allah.

00:03:32 --> 00:03:42

The Companions would come to our Prophet complaining, we're being tortured. Our backs are being whipped, our flesh is being burned, and the Prophet would tell them be patient.

00:03:43 --> 00:03:54

Because success and victory does not come until you are ready. And you are not ready until you know Allah subhanho wa Taala and act upon the implications of that knowledge

00:03:55 --> 00:04:23

and every hardship. We see how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw it as an opportunity, a chance to turn to Allah azza wa jal with more desperation, a chance to turn to Allah azza wa jal with more and more emotions, with every tear, every hardship, every cry of pain, it was a chance to know Allah better. Because through knowing Allah azza wa jal, that's how you're going to arrive at your victory.

00:04:25 --> 00:04:28

And so on the day of look life, in that same time period,

00:04:30 --> 00:04:49

after Khadija abou pilot have died, the Prophet goes to apply. And he's calling the people to Islam. It's like a last ditch efforts, hoping that they may support his that way. And the rulers reject Him and insult him. He goes to the regular people he gives them Dawa. Some of them start to consider Islam.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

So the elites of that society decide we don't want this and they gather a bunch of people and children and hooligans and thugs basically will pay you

00:05:00 --> 00:05:14

Money Dr. Oats, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam from the city get out of here. All of a sudden the mob descends on our prophets throwing rocks coming with sticks. So he runs for his life. And they hit him with rocks and he's bleeding.

00:05:16 --> 00:05:33

And he runs and he runs. The Prophet says, I lost. You know, when you're running for fear, you don't know what you're doing necessarily. Is I lost? I don't know what I was doing. I was just you're just running. It's an emotion. He's running for his life. He says I didn't gather myself until he was kilometers kilometers away from a fire

00:05:35 --> 00:05:53

and he sits down and he makes to honor to Allah subhanaw taala he turns to Allah. He says Allah Khomeini ash co Ed, Kuba, Kuba, T, welcome letter, feel that to Allah and complaining to you about my weakness, how weak My power is? What can let's defeat it? Let's see how little I have.

00:05:54 --> 00:06:00

How little I can I can present I can do well on the on the nest and the fact that I'm reliant upon people.

00:06:01 --> 00:06:07

And terapii You are my Lord. When Tara boosters are 18 and You are the Lord of those who are oppressed.

00:06:09 --> 00:06:10

Those who are vulnerable

00:06:12 --> 00:06:15

11 testimony in I don't need to know how many

00:06:17 --> 00:06:22

Caribbean Malacca Huangdi Oh Allah, Who are you leaving me to? Are you leaving me to the enemy

00:06:24 --> 00:06:27

that attacks me, or to my relatives,

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

who have made in control of me, meaning Quraysh

00:06:33 --> 00:06:46

in the mirror when they can in the mirror comic or any other one fella or Bernie? And then he says something so powerful. He says, Oh Allah, as long as you are not angry with me, I do not care.

00:06:47 --> 00:06:53

Meaning whatever you put me through, whatever hardship, whatever persecution, whatever difficulty

00:06:55 --> 00:07:09

as long as you are not angry with me, this is the Prophetic way. So Allah who lives in LA you run na via ticker here with Sadie except that your IP or your ease and pardon and forgiveness, this is better for me.

00:07:11 --> 00:07:14

This would be better for the Prophet broke down in pain.

00:07:15 --> 00:07:26

But he's breaking down with his love and Allah subhanaw taala he's not breaking down in rejection to Allah. How dare you do this to me? How dare you put me through this pain?

00:07:27 --> 00:07:55

That's an arrogant breaking down. No, he breaks down and love to Allah subhanaw taala and going through this pain, but as long as you Oh ALLAH are not angry with me. Then I'll go through it. I will endure it. And now comes the gifts of a distraught one mountain mouthwash. Now Allah subhanaw taala takes him on this miraculous journey. And he sees the signs of Allah subhanaw taala and he sees chivvied in His original form.

00:07:56 --> 00:08:14

And of course, no one sees Allah subhanaw taala until the next life but he sees the veil of Allah Azza he goes the closest to Allah that that is possible. Gibreel tells the Prophet I can't go any further. Only you can go. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam goes beyond any of the creation

00:08:15 --> 00:08:33

and his knowledge of Allah increases through this experience. And then the prophetic victories after the speaker begin to come as the knowledge of Allah increases and your understanding of what we will have to do with that knowledge you implemented now Allah subhanaw taala is gonna open the doors for you

00:08:35 --> 00:08:55

to get the victory of Hinshaw the victory of better the victory of Mecca. All of these victories now come, but the physical victories manifest all the after going through the process of hardship, of persevering of continuously trying, no matter how difficult things aren't you keep trying

00:08:56 --> 00:09:21

and in centering yourself in the knowledge and in the love of Allah subhanaw taala so when we asked for victory today, we have to be aware of the material and the physical victory. But it can only come after that period of patience and perseverance and not giving up and rather increasing our connection with Allah subhanaw taala. And as we think about victory, in the time that we have today,

00:09:22 --> 00:09:44

I want you to think about one of the names of Allah subhanaw taala. Allah Subhana Allah says, Who Allahu Allah, Allah, Allah Who and medical producer Salam, Mohammed Aziz on Chuck Darwin moto capital Subhan Allah Hi, I'm actually calling in these names ALLAH SubhanA. Allah mentions one of these names al Jabbar, the Compeller

00:09:46 --> 00:09:48

the mighty, what does it mean?

00:09:49 --> 00:09:51

The restore

00:09:52 --> 00:09:59

they say there's three meanings to this name of allah subject. And Jehovah Allah it fell to the one who is above his creation.

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

and the Arabs would say, to jump on the bat, like when the plants when the tree the date palm tree is growing, it will see when it's grown to its highest height, they say Jabara Juba they call the deep palm tree that's really high Jabara because it's very high.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:37

The other meaning is he eligible and follow up either NASA and MD humanity that Allah subhanaw taala compels the creation to what he wants. He will compel everything to act in the way that he wants to pan or whatever.

00:10:38 --> 00:10:48

And the last one he drew more the he restores the affairs it's brutal cuz when something is broken, and only Allah Subhana Allah can mend it.

00:10:50 --> 00:10:55

The first meaning of this to understand that Allah azza wa jal al Jabbar is the most high

00:10:56 --> 00:11:13

to realize Allah is above us. His plan is above our planet. His desire overwhelms our desires, no matter how high up you are elevated in terms of knowledge in terms of wealth, in terms of eloquence, power, honor, whatever it is, Allah is above you.

00:11:14 --> 00:11:43

And because of this, Allah subhanho data when he speaks about this term Jabbar, if it is ascribed to a human being, it's evil, because that human being is trying to raise themselves above Allah Zota Willemijn Janee de Val on Sofia. Lisa I'd incidences while he's a baby Allah did not make me what Jabba. He didn't make me this tyrant that tries to lift himself up up above the people above Allah azza wa jal.

00:11:45 --> 00:11:54

Allah subhana wa Dionysus Wahhabi Bucha Baron needs that every obstinance tyrant will be destroyed

00:11:55 --> 00:12:06

cathodic al Tibet Allahu Allah will be Muhtar Kent Baron Jabra. Allah seals over the hearts of everyone whose arrogance and Jabbar Vera tyrant.

00:12:07 --> 00:12:18

So Allah subhanaw taala is the most high when we try to lift ourselves become tyrants, lift ourselves over the people, then Allah subhanaw taala destroys such a person.

00:12:20 --> 00:12:23

We are also Allah Subhana Allah is the One who compels us.

00:12:25 --> 00:12:29

Something to think about who compelled you to look the way that you look?

00:12:30 --> 00:12:48

Who compelled you to have the skin color that you have? Who compelled you to be born in the city that you are in? Allah Subhana Allah gives us freedom, in terms of our choices of belief or disbelief. But Allah subhanaw taala compels so many aspects of our lives,

00:12:49 --> 00:12:51

we'll call it provided

00:12:54 --> 00:13:20

by the Athena. Allah says to the heavens and the earth come to me willingly or unwillingly. And they said to Allah, we will come willingly, the mountains, the stars, the moon's nature, all willingly moves according to the will of Allah subhanaw taala the human being, he gave you the scope of decision, and in the end, you're going to come to Allah subhanaw taala as a slave, and whatever he wants is going to take place.

00:13:22 --> 00:13:31

If you understand that Allah Subhana Allah is the most high, this gives you contentment, because you know, things are under his control. And therefore why should you be worried?

00:13:33 --> 00:13:41

If everything is under the control of Allah subhanaw taala This strengthens your heart. This tells you keep working. Allah Subhana Allah has a plan.

00:13:44 --> 00:13:54

And it reminds us that Allah subhanaw taala is Powerful Over All Things. When our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam returned from the rotten mouthwash.

00:13:55 --> 00:14:06

And it seems that Allah has told our Prophet to tell the people not just to have experienced it, but to tell the people what he experienced. And he's sitting in ministers in Haram.

00:14:07 --> 00:14:15

With a look on his face and his enemy Abuja and walks by him, he sees him and he feels something is off.

00:14:16 --> 00:14:18

So he asked the Prophet what's wrong?

00:14:19 --> 00:14:30

Even though they're enemies? He thought something was strange. He asked the Prophet what's wrong? So the Prophet told him, he said, I went to Mr. xelox. Son, I returned

00:14:31 --> 00:14:36

his he's, I would have said one. He said yesterday last night, I went outside I came back

00:14:38 --> 00:14:42

and Abuja and you woke up amongst us, the Prophet said, Yes.

00:14:43 --> 00:14:59

And Abuja can't contain himself. He's got him now. He says, If I bring the people are you going to tell them what you told me? He said, Yes. The promises I sent him said yes. So he when he gathered, all the people brought them to the prophet, and the prophet tells them and they're laughing, and they're insulting the Prophet. Sallallahu radiocentre

00:15:02 --> 00:15:15

And then some of them start to ask him questions. Some of them have been to muster that up. So they've been to do some research to ask him about the buildings about the things, and he's answering all their questions perfectly.

00:15:17 --> 00:15:28

And then they say, Okay, well, if you went and you came, you must have seen the caravans that are going in that direction and returning back. He says, Yes, I saw them. And he describes them perfectly.

00:15:29 --> 00:15:33

And he says, they're about to enter Mecca from this house, from that direction.

00:15:35 --> 00:15:37

And they look and they see the caravan indeed, is coming.

00:15:39 --> 00:15:42

And they run some of the people at the same time ran over the long run.

00:15:44 --> 00:15:56

And they tell him, did you hear what Muhammad said? Did you hear what Muhammad said? He said that he went to Mr. X and returned in one night. And Abu Bakr has not yet heard it from the Prophet. What did Abu Bakr say,

00:15:57 --> 00:15:58

in Paula?

00:15:59 --> 00:16:08

If he said this, because I don't know you're the one telling me this, I don't know. I don't trust you. But if he said it, then he is truthful, right away beliefs.

00:16:10 --> 00:16:30

People thought this is impossible, because this is an impossibility because it goes against what they consider to be natural laws. But who created these natural laws? Allah subhanaw taala. And what He wills happens, the problem in our society, even amongst Muslims, we limit ourselves mentally.

00:16:33 --> 00:16:36

Somebody will say, you know, we dealt the miracles

00:16:37 --> 00:16:56

because they go against science. The moon didn't split. Unless science tells us a split. And if I can find a scientific reasoning, I say Allahu Akbar, what if the science changes? What are the scientific consensus says, No, we change our opinion. These things didn't happen. You change your mind with it.

00:16:57 --> 00:17:08

No, because science is a flawed measure. It's a human activity. It's a flawed measure. And the Quran is divine. And we don't measure the divine by what is flawed.

00:17:11 --> 00:17:19

But it goes beyond this. We have a problem of being fatalistic. We think we're doomed to fail. The old man was lost.

00:17:21 --> 00:17:25

But the victory came to these people like Abu Bakar, the Allahu Allah,

00:17:26 --> 00:17:40

when they understood the power of Allah subhanaw taala. They understood Allah is in Juba, they understood the natural laws run according to the will of Allah subhanaw taala. Therefore what is considered impossible is possible by the decree of Allah Zota.

00:17:43 --> 00:17:52

They thought it's impossible to go to meet the knock this and come back to Mecca in one night, is that impossible when people do can do that all the time? It's an hour flight.

00:17:55 --> 00:18:18

They thought it's impossible. The prophets of Allah who says that when they were asking questions about inputs, it will be to knock this over. Drew, some of you were asking questions. He said, Allah subhanaw taala gave him a vision because he couldn't remember he went there a night. He couldn't remember what was there. But when they were questioning him, he said, Allah gave me a vision of the city. So everything they asked me, I could see it, and I can describe it for them.

00:18:19 --> 00:18:31

So sounds impossible. Today, you can get a live view on your cell phone, you can be walking around, and you get a live view, the things that we think are impossible. Are they really impossible? Are they really beyond the capacity of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:18:36 --> 00:18:44

Victory came when they understood this, they understood the power of hope. So whenever workers asked, he says if the prophet said it, I believe.

00:18:45 --> 00:18:46

Now,

00:18:47 --> 00:18:53

the reason I'm leading to this question, if Allah promises, victory for this Allah,

00:18:54 --> 00:19:05

if He promises that if we unite, there is victory for the OMA. If he promises that if we believe, and we refuse to love the dunya

00:19:07 --> 00:19:26

and we refuse to be people who hate to die because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, one of the reasons for this downfall is and when Allah puts her hand in the hearts of the person from the dunya, we're here to note, if we take this as fact that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that the Muslims start to unite in reality,

00:19:27 --> 00:19:36

then the Muslims start to believe in truth in this religion, that the Muslims are willing to sacrifice for the sake of Allah subhana wa Tada

00:19:38 --> 00:19:40

is victory impossible.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:44

Can you believe that victory is possible?

00:19:45 --> 00:19:54

Can you believe maybe not in our lifetimes, but in our children's lifetimes? We'll see the victory maybe even in our lifetimes. This victory will take place.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:57

But how much are you willing to believe?

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

That's the question.

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

In

00:20:02 --> 00:20:07

the fall of the unmanned what has taken place in the last 100 years? It can be reversed.

00:20:11 --> 00:20:16

But the question is whether or not we're willing to have that relationship with Allah subhanaw taala and build upon that belief.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:22

The other reason for us to think about this name of Allah Subhana Allah Jabbar.

00:20:23 --> 00:20:39

I love this name for one week for an important reason for many reasons, but an important reason. Some of the names of Allah subhanaw taala have to do with his mercy. He is a man he's been some of the names of Allah has to do with his power, his might his punishment for those who are worthy of his punishment.

00:20:41 --> 00:20:50

This name is both because he is Jabba. He is exalted in his might in his power. He's the most high, but the bottom means the one who restores

00:20:51 --> 00:20:58

the one who mends the ones who are the one who fixes so if you're oppressed, who do you turn to?

00:20:59 --> 00:21:09

If someone has taken from you your rights, who do you turn to you turn to a bug. When you feel broken inside, who do you turn to turn to a Jabba the one who mends the hearts

00:21:12 --> 00:21:18

Oliver the Allah want us to make dua to Allah subhanaw taala to Belka Luca 01, who men's everyone who's broken

00:21:20 --> 00:21:21

so he in the same name,

00:21:22 --> 00:21:44

can punish the tiredness and in the same name, he mends those who have been oppressed. He supports those who have been oppressed, he helps those who have been oppressed. He's there for our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he makes that to outside of five Allahumma Nia square Laker Darfur quality all I'm complaining to you about the weakness of my power.

00:21:47 --> 00:21:51

This is the Lord's panel was out and his might

00:21:52 --> 00:22:30

and in his generosity and his tenderness and his protection. We have to turn to Allah subhanaw taala and these times we have to think about Allah soldier in deepen that connection, like our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did, in deepens the connection to Allah SOTA. He refuses to lose hope and Allah subhanaw taala he's willing to surrender himself to Allah azza wa jal, oh Allah whatever it is you want to do with me? I'm okay with it. If you want for me to live this world completely persecuted. As long as you are not angry with me I will do it. That kind of surrendering ourselves to Allah subhanaw taala

00:22:32 --> 00:22:42

and acting upon our belief in Allah subhanaw taala and striving the way that our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam strove in his life. This is what's going to transform us.

00:22:43 --> 00:22:47
