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

Allah subhanaw taala Allah tells us in the Quran, what will kill a yam who will have been a nurse. And such are the days we give to people

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

in alternating forms,

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

that Allah subhanaw taala alternates the days of his creation.

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

Meaning there are days that alternates days where we are wealthy, and days where we are in debts,

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

days in which we are relaxed, and days in which we are anxious. There are days we feel pride in our children, and days we worry about their future.

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

And through all these alterations,

00:00:49--> 00:00:52

there are those who live in each day

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

with a spiritual blindness

00:00:57--> 00:01:02

and there are those who live each day with tranquility and connection to their Creator.

00:01:03--> 00:01:11

Allah subhanaw taala tells us woman out there and decree for in other home Are you certain Blanca,

00:01:12--> 00:01:20

that whoever turns away from my remembrance, then they will truly have a suffocating life

00:01:21--> 00:01:23

and asphyxia ated life.

00:01:26--> 00:01:33

Allah subhanaw taala here is showing us the difference. The difference between those who are pleased and content

00:01:34--> 00:01:37

with their Lord SubhanaHu wata Island.

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

Those who are thankful no matter the hardship they face,

00:01:42--> 00:01:46

and those who despair at the first sight of hardship.

00:01:48--> 00:01:56

It's the difference between those who are blind, spiritually, those who are veiled spiritually

00:01:58--> 00:02:01

from recognizing any of the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:02:03--> 00:02:05

But every blessing they see

00:02:06--> 00:02:09

is only a reminder of what they don't have.

00:02:12--> 00:02:17

And between those who can only see the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala around them.

00:02:18--> 00:02:20

It's the difference

00:02:21--> 00:02:23

that we want to discuss today.

00:02:24--> 00:02:27

The difference between a revived hearts

00:02:29--> 00:02:30

and new life

00:02:31--> 00:02:39

and between the suffocated life, the difference between spiritual joy and material sadness.

00:02:41--> 00:02:43

Allah subhanaw taala says,

00:02:44--> 00:02:48

Man, I'm In Miami, the Saudi Hanneman decade in a Windsor

00:02:50--> 00:02:51

Wahoo Milan

00:02:52--> 00:02:55

filipiniana who hire at some point either

00:02:56--> 00:02:59

that whoever works righteous deeds,

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

male or female, well who are not men and they are believers,

00:03:06--> 00:03:14

then we will give them a new life. A revived life, a life that is good and pure.

00:03:15--> 00:03:36

When we enhance our faith in Allah subhanaw taala. When we enhance our hearts and purify the hearts, and continue to do acts of righteous deeds, then Allah revives your life. It's as if your life was dead. Fernando Eanna who we will give him life now.

00:03:38--> 00:03:49

The Scholars say the new life is the life in which you are content and pleased with Allah subhanaw taala and with the decree of Allah in your life

00:03:50--> 00:03:58

when we have this contentment no matter the external circumstances, this person has a rich life.

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

A woman can and Aten Fahey now who was there another who are on MTV can omit canon method who fit Zulu Marathi, Lisa B hydrogen minha. Allah subhanaw taala asks you is the one who is dead,

00:04:18--> 00:04:36

not literally dead, but their hearts is dead is the one who is dead. Then we gave him life. And we gave him a lights with which to walk amongst the people. He has perception. He has an understanding of what he is seeing in his life.

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

Is this person equal to the one who is in darkness Lisa Behati gem in her and will never leave this darkness.

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

The one with contentment of Allah subhanaw taala are the one who is dead.

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

Who is in darkness? Who cannot exit out of that darkness.

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

And this is why Allah subhanaw taala tells us yo Malayan feral man when when I've been on

00:05:07--> 00:05:13

he reminds us of the Day of Judgment the day where no one will benefits from wealth or children.

00:05:14--> 00:05:27

Eliminate Allah have you call it been serene, except for the one who comes to Allah with a sound hearts, we have to meet Allah subhanaw taala with hearts that are pure in sound,

00:05:28--> 00:05:34

but how often our hearts diseased in this world deprived of contentment.

00:05:36--> 00:05:37

We see people

00:05:38--> 00:05:39

who don't have money.

00:05:40--> 00:05:46

And they're not contents. And people who do have money and they're also not content.

00:05:47--> 00:05:49

We see people

00:05:50--> 00:05:57

who were married at a young age, not content, wondering should I have waited before I gotten married.

00:05:59--> 00:06:04

And people who got married at an old age or yet to get married and they're not contents.

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

We see people whom Allah bless them with children. And they're not contents, complaining of the difficulties of raising their children. And those who Allah did not give them children. And they too are not contents. Husbands not content with their wives, wives not content with their husbands.

00:06:25--> 00:06:31

This is a disease that can afflict any hearts.

00:06:33--> 00:06:48

It's not about what we've been given or what we've been prevented from. Rather, it's about the condition and the soundness of the hearts. It's about the perception and the lights, that we have to see the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala through

00:06:50--> 00:07:11

the problem we have is we obsess over the things we've lost or we cannot attain. And we've forgotten all the things that we already have. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, to remind us of the blessings of Allah around us, to remind us that we are drowning in the blessings of Allah azza wa jal

00:07:12--> 00:07:21

when asked if you should be wise and free, but anything under to me for free is dunya.

00:07:23--> 00:07:48

That whoever wakes up, safe in their home, healthy in their body, you have safety, you're not running for your life. You have health. You're not struggling with an illness, you have enough provision to last you a single day. You have enough food and water to last you one day, not a month, not a year. One day.

00:07:49--> 00:07:53

It's as if all of the dunya has been gathered for this person.

00:07:54--> 00:08:04

We heal our hearts and we become content when we appreciate the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala when we can actually see them and witness them.

00:08:06--> 00:08:22

Allah subhana wa Tada says, we're in Vienna and met Europe, DECA for her death. As for the Blessings of your Lord, then speak as if Allah is telling you do not speak except when you're recognizing the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:23--> 00:09:01

Every word that is thankful to Allah that reminds us of His blessings leads us to Eman leads us to contentment leads us to enter joy and every word of ingratitude. Every word that ignores the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala leads us to disbelief and to self loathing. So Allah says, what school will Allah He won't accept full moon, be grateful to Allah have shook her to Allah and do not disbelieve. These are the polar opposites, gratitude and disbelief.

00:09:03--> 00:09:16

And so the more we increase in gratitude, we enhance the life in this world and in the next, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam advised us on Zorrilla men who are doing work, what are men who are felt,

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

for inner who urged letters that Allah Herrick, he said, always look to those who are beneath you in terms of the affairs of the dunya and never look to those who are above you. Because this is more likely to prevent you from under estimating the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala upon you.

00:09:39--> 00:09:41

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is telling you

00:09:43--> 00:09:51

that you are drowning in the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala and you are in a state of under estimating the blessings of Allah.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

So look to those who have less than you. So you break this concept of constantly under estimating the blessings of Allah Azza

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

Time. Allah tells you in the Quran when I tell you what atom will deny you naked Ilana Metatron over here as wedge Amin Hamza Ratan Hayato dunya. Don't extend your eyes to see what we have given from the pleasures of this world to other people why lien of Tina whom fee? This was a test for them?

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

Why would you covet the test that Allah has given others? What is Cora bigger, higher on what aapke and the provision of your Lord is better for you and longer lasting? Don't look to what Allah has given others. Because whatever Allah chose for you, is better for you.

00:10:38--> 00:10:47

It's better for you in this life, and it's better for you in the next life. The choice of Allah for you is always better than your choice for yourself.

00:10:49--> 00:10:56

And this is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, what would be my Kasana Hula, hula Talquin Elena and nurse.

00:10:57--> 00:11:03

Be content with what Allah has a portion for you. You will be the richest of the people.

00:11:04--> 00:11:19

The one who is really poor, who was really deprived is the one who lost their contentment. The one who does not find pleasure in what Allah subhanaw taala decreed for them, or at least to be content with it.

00:11:20--> 00:11:27

But those who are content, they live a life of richness, a life of happiness.

00:11:29--> 00:11:33

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said they're called Eman.

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

They have tasted the sweetness of faith.

00:11:39--> 00:11:53

They have tasted the sweetness of Eman who Mirabilia Billa he's the one who is pleased with Allah as their Lord. When you are pleased with Allah as your Lord, what does that mean?

00:11:55--> 00:12:04

It means the things that Allah has decreed for you you are pleased with. You are pleased with him being your LORD with him deciding

00:12:06--> 00:12:09

where you would be born to whom you would be born.

00:12:10--> 00:12:17

Where he decided your life and your circumstances. You are pleased with Allah.

00:12:19--> 00:12:21

You taste the sweetness of Eman

00:12:24--> 00:12:26

and it connects us with Allah subhanaw taala

00:12:28--> 00:12:46

and some of the scholars they said the sweetness of Eman is a form of paradise. The person will be in the dunya but they are tasting a sweetness of paradise. And so when the person enters Jana, they've already recognized some of it in the new year.

00:12:47--> 00:13:09

And so it no claim and other scholars have said no one will enter Jannah except they already experienced it. We will do hello whom will Jannetty Rafa Allah. Allah says he will enter them into a paradise that they are they have already experienced? They are already aware of how are they aware of it.

00:13:11--> 00:13:13

Then Catarman Eman earlier

00:13:14--> 00:13:18

they tasted the sweetness of faith when they were pleased with a lost their Lord.

00:13:20--> 00:14:06

And if we were to examine the lives of the Prophet and the righteous people, we would say we would see clearly how they tasted the sweetness of Eman in their lives. How the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the richest of all the people even though he may not have any food in his home, even though there were many days the prophet would pray Fudger then go to his home, ask his wives are there is there any food they would say we have not even a dates and the prophets Allah Allahu Allah, you will send them would say, then I am fasting. And the Prophet would fast days and he would come to break his fast and have nothing but a sip of water to drink. So Allahu alayhi wa salam. And he

00:14:06--> 00:14:18

was the richest of the people. Because Allah subhana wa Tada tells us in the Quran, well, what can you learn? For Elena, he found you poor and he enriched you?

00:14:20--> 00:14:47

Allah subhanaw taala did not enrich our Prophet with wealth in castles or even bread in dates. But he enriched him with contentment with Allah subhanaw taala with a heart that is independent of this dunya did not need this dunya and was attached to Allah subhanaw taala the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would tie rocks against his belly because of the pangs of hunger.

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

This prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when Allah gave him a choice, to be a prophet who is a king, meaning a prophets who has castles

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

and wealth and power, likes when a man at his center

00:15:05--> 00:15:10

or to be a prophet who is a servant. He said, I chose to be

00:15:11--> 00:15:15

the Nubian, to be a servant who is a Prophet.

00:15:16--> 00:15:18

Our Prophet sallallahu ala you will send them once

00:15:19--> 00:15:42

left his home to roam the streets. For what reason? At nights, for what reason? He was hungry. He wanted to get his mind off of his hunger. So he's walking the streets at nights at a time where rarely anyone would be out of their home. And he comes across when Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Allah.

00:15:44--> 00:15:51

And he asked simple buck, why are you out of your home? And he says, Yeah, rasool Allah, Allah Joon am hungry.

00:15:54--> 00:15:58

To have the best people on the face of the earth.

00:15:59--> 00:16:03

Were walking outside of their home to get their mind off of their hunger.

00:16:05--> 00:16:09

And as they're walking, they come across a third of the Allahu Allah and

00:16:10--> 00:16:15

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asks him, why are you wondering? Why are you out walking?

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

And again, he tells the Prophet and Julia rasool Allah, I'm hungry messenger of Allah.

00:16:21--> 00:16:26

And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them tells them well let me in fcbd

00:16:27--> 00:16:39

luck, Raja nila, the raja coma, nothing took me out of my home, I swear by the one and whose hand my soul is, and nothing took me out of my home, except exactly what took the two of you out of your home.

00:16:41--> 00:16:50

And as they're spending the night outside, walking and chatting to get their mind off of their hunger, and I'm sorry, he man sees them.

00:16:51--> 00:16:56

And he goes in inquires, what are you doing, and he insists come to my house.

00:16:58--> 00:17:00

I want to invite you over for food.

00:17:01--> 00:17:09

And he runs to his wife. And he tells his wife, let's slaughter the small sheep we have and cook it

00:17:10--> 00:17:17

for the Prophet salallahu already, you're setting them in Abu Bakr and Omar, the three greatest sin on the face of the earth.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

So they went over to his house.

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

And he cooked them this meal. And you can imagine it may have been days and days and days where they haven't had a proper meal.

00:17:31--> 00:17:34

But they are hungry for days and days.

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

And they sit down and they get this meal and they eat it's

00:17:41--> 00:17:46

and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them turns to his companions. And what does he say to them?

00:17:47--> 00:17:52

He said Well, lovely enough cvrd there to Aluna Han had no email but

00:17:54--> 00:18:04

he said I swear by the one and whose hand my soul is in, you will be asked, you will be asked about his blessing on the Day of Judgment.

00:18:06--> 00:18:07

Three men

00:18:08--> 00:18:15

struggling from hunger for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and when they had their first proper meal,

00:18:16--> 00:18:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells them you will be asked about this on the Day of Judgment.

00:18:22--> 00:18:25

What blessings are we going to pass? What blessings are we going to pass?

00:18:27--> 00:18:29

What houses do we have?

00:18:30--> 00:18:33

With heaters and air conditioners?

00:18:35--> 00:18:46

Perfectly primed to the temperature we want running water in our house, a fridge to keep our food a car to drive us around and luxury.

00:18:48--> 00:18:54

What pleasures are we going to be asked about on the day of judgment if they're going to be asked about a single meal.

00:18:57--> 00:19:02

Omron kappa the Allah one. When he entered upon our Prophet Sall, Allahu Allah, he was sitting there.

00:19:04--> 00:19:07

And he saw the red marks on the back of our Prophet

00:19:09--> 00:19:11

because of the mattress he was sleeping on.

00:19:12--> 00:19:16

There was just twigs and a cover over it.

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

He could see the red marks on his back.

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

And Obama began to cry.

00:19:23--> 00:19:27

And he said, The kings of the Persians and the Romans

00:19:29--> 00:19:41

have these elaborate beds and sheets and cushions and silk and gold and silver and Your Messenger of Allah are in the state.

00:19:42--> 00:19:51

And the Prophet Sall Allahu Allah, He will send them sent to him to remind him and us about what's really important.

00:19:52--> 00:19:56

He said Mr. Turtle, Dawn, and Sokoine along with dunya otaku,

00:19:58--> 00:19:59

wouldn't you aren't you happy

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

They have the dunya but we have the era.

00:20:05--> 00:20:09

This is true richness. This is true wealth.

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

Allah subhanaw taala tells us that no Quran, failure to render kumuha to dunya. Don't be deceived by the life of this world. Don't be deluded by this world.

00:20:24--> 00:20:37

Don't let your heart turn into self loathing and anger and bitterness. Why didn't I have this? Why does he have it and I don't have it. Look at the greatest people who ever lived.

00:20:39--> 00:20:40

That's true wealth.

00:20:42--> 00:21:05

That's true wealth. Whoever is content with Allah, they will be the richest of all the people. And the true poverty is being distracted by the blessings of Allah away from Allah subhanaw taala. That the cars and the houses in the wealth is a distraction away from the one who without him, none of these luxuries would even exist.

00:21:07--> 00:21:15

And the richness of our heart is when we see and we recognize the greatness of Allah subhanaw taala every time we see a blessing

00:21:17--> 00:21:27

and this is not so easy. So we ask Allah, it has to be part of our dua, our daily vicar turning to Allah asking him to allow us to be grateful.

00:21:29--> 00:21:36

The LZ Ernie and ash Quran Allah Mitakon the terror of today, my lord enable me, give me the ability

00:21:39--> 00:21:44

give me the ability to be thankful to all the blessings that you've bestowed upon me

00:21:49--> 00:21:50

in Panama, photographing.

00:22:05--> 00:22:09

Smilo Hamilton, Los Altos ala Rasulillah while he was being

00:22:13--> 00:22:16

as we think about the blessings of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:22:19--> 00:22:22

Often we think about the blessings of Allah as a number.

00:22:23--> 00:22:25

We think about it as the number in our bank account.

00:22:27--> 00:22:29

The blessings of Allah are beyond that.

00:22:30--> 00:22:35

of the greatest of the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that he allowed you to be here today.

00:22:37--> 00:22:39

He allowed you to pray to him.

00:22:40--> 00:22:41

He allowed you to turn to Him.

00:22:44--> 00:22:59

When a man went to hustle and bustle, Rahim, Allah hooter, IRA, and he said, I keep doing sins, but Allah has not prevented me. I have money. I have means I have ability and I keep doing sins.

00:23:02--> 00:23:07

It hustle and bustle Rahim, Allah, Allah He said to him, it's accumulative. Do you stand and pray at night?

00:23:09--> 00:23:18

The men said, No, I don't pray to headship. He said corfac and how to Rama Kala, when he said it's enough that Allah subhanaw taala prevented you

00:23:19--> 00:23:21

from having that private to art with him.

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

What more of a prevention is there than that? And what more of a blessing is there that Allah azza wa jal allows you to worship him?

00:23:32--> 00:23:34

I mean, we have to be thankful for that blessing

00:23:35--> 00:23:38

and have the greatest blessings of Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:39--> 00:23:41

is when a sin presents itself to you.

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

And you are capable of doing it

00:23:46--> 00:23:48

and you may be desire to do it.

00:23:51--> 00:23:53

And you turn away from it,

00:23:54--> 00:23:57

because that strength to turn away from it was the blessing of itself.

00:23:58--> 00:24:03

Allah subhanaw taala says, what occurred him to be what Hannah Behala Allah.

00:24:05--> 00:24:19

Allah mentioned that a Prophet Yusuf, that she desired him, and he would have desired her had he not seeing the signs of his Lord canaliculi Nasri for animals to our fracture in the human rebellion. And

00:24:20--> 00:24:34

this is how we averted him from evil and immortality, immortality. Indeed he was of our chosen slaves. When Allah saves you from a sin that you intended to do, Allah subhanaw taala has chosen you.

00:24:36--> 00:24:40

Allah has chosen you, and made you amongst his chosen slaves.

00:24:41--> 00:24:45

And so be thankful to Allah subhanaw taala for every sinner you averted you from

00:24:47--> 00:25:00

and look in your life for all of the blessings of Allah, not only the material blessings, but every blessing Allah azza wa jal has given you and turn to him with gratitude and thankfulness and contentment

00:25:00--> 00:25:06
