00:00:01--> 00:00:04

Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

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

alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayidina Muhammad Allah Allah, he was a big part in Frobisher presurgery what is the reality of the Middle Eastern UFO holy.

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

He began by reading wash your hands, and asking Allah to see and his peace and blessings. Upon the final prophet Muhammad, you will not be learned for the love while he was alone.

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

And all those who follow his way with righteousness as of the last day.

00:00:37--> 00:00:48

Today I have a very important topic related to our belief and our eternal the acts of worship that we do within our hearts.

00:00:49--> 00:00:58

It's a topic that many of us know about on a theoretical level, but on a practical level,

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

many of us are unaware of how to utilize it, how to do it.

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

And that is the topic of the one called

00:01:09--> 00:01:12

putting one's trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

Most of us know that this is part of our aqidah that we as Muslims put our tawakkol in Allah,

00:01:21--> 00:01:27

we know we are supposed to have the will in Allah, we know that this is a necessary component of our fate,

00:01:29--> 00:01:31

but the remains in the Muslim Ummah,

00:01:32--> 00:01:35

misunderstandings about tawakkol

00:01:37--> 00:01:40

a lack of clarity on how to do tawakkol

00:01:41--> 00:01:45

and some really strange ideas related to the local.

00:01:47--> 00:01:51

So what I hope to clarify, over the next 30 minutes or so,

00:01:53--> 00:02:08

is what is the wobble, why we are supposed to have the wobble, the effects of the wobble. And most importantly, the bulk of this topic will be on how to practice the wobble in a practical manner.

00:02:09--> 00:02:19

So I hope by the end of today's presentation, we all will be able to go back to our businesses in our work and tackle it with the workbook

00:02:20--> 00:02:22

to work while trusting left behind.

00:02:25--> 00:02:27

So to get started our definition what is the worker

00:02:29--> 00:02:48

the worker means trust allow with your future. To trust Allah with your future. To trust Allah would your money, your safety, your life, your family, this is called the workbook.

00:02:50--> 00:03:01

When we recite ayatul kursi and lock our doors and go to bed at night, trusting Allah will take care of our property while we are asleep. That is

00:03:05--> 00:03:16

when we come for Juma and we leave our businesses and we come to the masjid and we just allowed to protect our businesses from criminals while we are at the masjid. That is the walk.

00:03:18--> 00:03:24

The walk will means to entrust Allah to God and protect you and your dunya

00:03:25--> 00:04:17

and the concept of tawakkol is directly linked to the concept of risk, sustenance. What is risk? Risk means everything that Allah has given us. Our life is risk, our family's risk, our EMR risk, output and risk. The guidance that came to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and reached out to them the ratios of these is risk, our intelligence is risk, our free time is risk our youth is risk, our health is risk. Our money is breached Our food is risk our homes in our cars our risk, every single thing that Allah has given you is called risk. The workload is related to risk in that we trust Allah to give us what we need to get through the dunya.

00:04:18--> 00:04:28

This is what the workqueue means. The Whirlpool is also related to another aspect of our EDA, which is believed in further believe in destiny.

00:04:29--> 00:04:49

Because it is mentioned in the authentic IDs, that when our soul is put into the fetus in our mother's womb. 120 days after the fetus is conceptualized. The angels are told to write down the color of the destiny of that soul which includes whether he's going to be wealthy or poor.

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

I'll just use a radio

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

show tawakkol is linked together and later I'm going to explain how they link together in a practical manner. So we

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

Know what the workload is? Why should we have the workload?

00:05:06--> 00:05:14

The workload one of the primary benefits of tawakkol. It lowers anxiety. It lowers anxiety.

00:05:15--> 00:05:29

If you look at the areas of the world, these two types of areas, those were the man and those without those who have in mind, and who just allow their route, they are happy, they are peaceful. They are

00:05:30--> 00:05:39

those who lack faith in Allah, they are worried they will use they will lose the audience overnight. Allah puts the fear of poverty in their hearts, no matter how rich they get.

00:05:40--> 00:06:10

The waku means whether you are the poorest of the poor, or the richest of the rich, you are relaxed, because you know, Allah is gonna provide you what you need to get through the day. And tomorrow, I'm gonna provide you what you need to get redacted. So you just have to take care of your future. So what that does is it removes the anxiety, you go to work, but you're not stressed out about work, you know, at the end of the day, give me what I need. So it really comes the soul and with that removal of anxiety comes in

00:06:11--> 00:06:23

contentment, happiness, contentment is directly linked to the worker. And when you trust Allah with your risk, then you are satisfied or Allah has given you at the end of the day.

00:06:24--> 00:06:39

So tawakkol is a very important topic. Right? We will explain what it is and why we are supposed to have the workshop. Most importantly, we need to understand how to have the workshop

00:06:40--> 00:06:50

because this seems to be a misunderstanding in our communities. How do I trust Allah subhanho wa Taala with my future

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

and sad to say, you know communities, many of us don't have

00:06:57--> 00:07:02

the proof of that lies in the fact that we will take up around means to earn our risk.

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

If someone is willing to do haraam to earn the risk, it means they don't just

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

say Simple as that. If you are willing to do Hara to earn your risk, it means you don't just

00:07:16--> 00:07:19

because you are saying that Allah I cannot get rich.

00:07:22--> 00:07:33

Or like you know, provide for my family unless I do Hara but you forget was the one providing for your family? Allah is the one who provided the Allah is the one who led you, Richard, how much you are going to?

00:07:35--> 00:07:44

I want us to think about something on the Day of Judgment, Allah subhana wa, Allah is only going to ask us two questions about money. And neither of those questions is, how much did you or

00:07:46--> 00:08:27

do you know why neither of them is? How much did you earn? Because Allah decides how much you want You don't? A lot really decided that that's not in your control to Allah is not gonna ask you about that. Allah is gonna ask you two things. How did you? How did you spend it, your risk is already written. If you're meant to get 40,000 at the end of the month, you'll get it one way or another. If you're meant to get 4000. At the end of the month, you're getting one way or another. I was not gonna ask you how would you go? He's asking you, how did you get it? halaal harar. Honorable, this honorable as some people may ask. So if I sit at home and don't work, that means I'm still going to

00:08:27--> 00:08:36

get a nice answer. Yes, you still get your reason for that. People who are retired at risk children, they get the risk.

00:08:38--> 00:08:46

You know, I know of two people who get the same amount of risk every month. One of them works very hard. The other one sits at home watching TV all day.

00:08:47--> 00:09:11

But the one who works hard he's earning a lot of risk. The ones sitting at home watching TV all day, he gets his restore what people enjoy from the giving sadaqa Ginza on the Day of Judgment, which of those two will allow ask him how did you get your wrist which of them is going to have the honorable answer, they will get erased from Allah, or one of them is doing it the right way the other sitting at home and not working.

00:09:12--> 00:09:30

And that in Islam is wrong for a man because if you are not aware of this, it is wise for a man to give his word you have ligature to go out and work in logic. Allah is going to ask you how did you get this risk? He's going to send it to you one way or another, but are you getting it the honorable way or the dishonorable way?

00:09:32--> 00:09:42

So the workload is directly linked to risk. And people ask how do we have the workload? How do we just allow what what what steps do we take? How do we do it?

00:09:44--> 00:10:00

So today, I'm going to highlight a few of these steps and these steps are taken from the modality to study in by even came out Josie urashima Hola. In the chapter where he lists about six or seven things you can do that if you do these six or seven things, your tawakoni increases and people

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

Comes practically becomes real, not just something we talk about.

00:10:04--> 00:10:17

Step number one very important step is to recognize who Allah is. If you do not know Allah, it becomes difficult to put tawakoni Allah

00:10:18--> 00:10:21

The what cool is based on your knowledge of your Creator.

00:10:23--> 00:10:28

Specifically, on your knowledge about the asthma insofar the alarm related to risk?

00:10:29--> 00:10:31

I'll give you for example.

00:10:34--> 00:10:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala is our Rosa.

00:10:37--> 00:10:43

What does that mean? It means he's the one providing us providing everything in this universe.

00:10:45--> 00:10:46

The birds they don't worry about.

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

The ants Don't worry about risk, taking care of

00:10:52--> 00:11:02

everything, the plants are taking care of them. Even the other planets are worse we can hear them. But we we are the only ones who say no, I have to take everybody.

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

I have to take everybody's money. We don't want to don't just allow that. Even though we are the ones to whom Allah has

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

provided

00:11:13--> 00:11:16

less of a hammer without a gun just arose out.

00:11:18--> 00:11:33

What is the best of those who can provide? Meaning what people also provide, don't they? fathers give their children money. Bosses give this employee salaries, that's provisions but a human can only provide what Allah

00:11:34--> 00:11:54

Allah provides from infinite resources. Geez the best providers? Allah is Allah ha, Yo, this name Allah. Our time we made a mockery of it. You know, we don't like somebody calling Wahhabi. We make a mockery what allows me allows me to

00:11:55--> 00:12:03

do what is one of the most beautiful Names of Allah that you should be using in your everyday Allah have means the giver of gifts.

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

I was gifted you with life is gifting you with a man. When we make two of our families you see you're gonna have Nana mean as wodgina will do.

00:12:15--> 00:12:26

Oh Allah give us such wives and children. That will be the coolness of our eyes will be translated as give us but the actual word is what happens. Give us as a gift.

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

We don't deserve it. But Allah gives it to us as a gift.

00:12:32--> 00:12:39

Is our hobbies the giver of gifts, if you believe allows the giver of gifts, how can you don't have to walk?

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

alone is gonna give you gifts throughout your life that you never imagined.

00:12:46--> 00:12:47

If you believe Allah,

00:12:48--> 00:13:22

Allah is Allah Karim. What's the meaning of Al Karim? He's the most generous, most generous. Do we doubt the generosity of electrical Hannah with Allah to us? Do we doubt that Allah will be generous to us and provide for us more than we imagine for where we never imagined. Allah is Allah Karim. He is the most generous. Allah tells us to be Kareem, to our guests to be Kareem to our neighbors, but as Kareem as we can, we can never be as hard allies. He is the most generous.

00:13:24--> 00:13:29

The more you know Allah, the more your tawakkol increases.

00:13:31--> 00:13:37

If we believe that Allah is in control of everything, we know only allowed to give us access.

00:13:38--> 00:13:41

If we know the only Allah knows everything is already

00:13:42--> 00:13:45

there. We know that Allah knows when a success in this is going to be good for me or bad.

00:13:47--> 00:13:59

Our knows where they're getting richer is gonna be good for me or bad. So we just ignore them. When we know that Allah sees everything, we know Allah is gonna reward us for working hard. When we get rich to working hard, are you still going to give us our reward?

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

When we believe that Allah is most merciful, do whatever Allah gives us at the end of the month. We know this allows mercy to us. If he has made us wealthy, it allows us to do it we have kept away from us that's also a mercy to us, but the world may have corrupted us.

00:14:16--> 00:14:17

Trust Allah.

00:14:18--> 00:14:39

And you can only trust Allah when you know Allah. So learn the support of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the last name of allah or the last quality of Allah I want to mention in terms of recognize who Allah is, is one of the very first ones mentioned in the Quran in the first verse of surah. Al Fatiha Allah tells us he is Rob Bula.

00:14:40--> 00:14:46

What is the meaning of a robber, which actually as Lord of the Universe, or Rob means Allah controls?

00:14:47--> 00:15:00

Allah controls the entire universe. That means Allah controls your future law controls your destiny, Allah controls your business. This is why whenever I do business or leave do I say Oh Allah put it in the hearts of people.

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

To buy from me.

00:15:01--> 00:15:10

Why? Because Allah controls the heart. I was the one who said, when you walk with someone's walking down, I love watching the person you know what, let me go to the shop today who

00:15:11--> 00:15:18

is the chair of the shop selling the same thing. I was the one who decided which shop to go into you got all ones reasonable, comfortable owner of that shop.

00:15:20--> 00:15:50

Now later on we'll show how we use the attributes of a lighter walk. But the first step is is knowledge. The first step to any act of worship is knowledge. And the first step to putting out tawakoni Allah is Knowing Allah. The more you know Allah, the more you are relaxed in life, the more you trust Allah, when you know Allah is merciful, you are relaxed, because the Most Merciful taking care of you. When you are no allergen control of everything, no matter what's going on in your life, you are relaxed because you know Allah is in control, and he's not going to abandon. So no Allah.

00:15:51--> 00:15:57

Step number two turning our risk and, and be handing out the recording Allah is to make an effort.

00:15:59--> 00:16:40

A lot has created means and the means of earning our is is to make an effort. And this effort is of two types, a worldly effort and a spiritual effort. And most of us are aware of the worldly effort, you get a job, you start a business, you go out there and you earn your income. That is the worldly effort that is watching upon every man who has a family. It is worship upon the male to take care of his wife and children. Therefore he's watching upon a meal, to earn income and to work. So working, running a business, working a job, no matter what your job is. It is an act of worship if you're doing it for the sake of Allah. And there's no such thing as the lowly job. Once a man came to

00:16:40--> 00:16:50

Rasulullah sallallahu some big rahula told him to take his axe to go and chop some wood and to sell it as firewood. He said that is better for you than anything, you get your bacon.

00:16:52--> 00:17:02

Whatever the job is, you own your Easter holiday to nobody. So to make an effort is part of the walk. It's not against the wall. There's a story that in the time of

00:17:03--> 00:17:07

some young men used to sit in the masjid all day. So

00:17:08--> 00:17:14

we all know how Maradona was he walks up to these men and said what are you guys doing? And these youngsters said Oh,

00:17:15--> 00:17:24

so the children in the masjid Omar and we chased him out to the masjid. And he told him go out there and earn your risk. Then Pooja tawakoni Allah.

00:17:26--> 00:17:28

In our lives, we really need Omar in our communities

00:17:30--> 00:17:31

where the story is at the edge.

00:17:33--> 00:17:35

So part of the effort,

00:17:36--> 00:17:59

the work will means you go out there you make the best possible effort. And when that effort is done, you leave it to Allah. One of the best examples of this is the Battle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was out there with his army of only 300 people. He took his armies, he listened to the Sahaba in terms of strategies, he placed the army in the best possible spot to fight.

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

Then he need to out and he says victory is up to Allah, Allah will take care of us. But first he formed the army. He went out there, he listened to the Sahaba they formed the strategies. They strategize where they would be in the battlefield. And then at the end,

00:18:14--> 00:18:21

he left it to Allah He left the decision for Allah, he made the effort and then he put his trust in Allah, Allah gravity victory.

00:18:23--> 00:18:34

But you see one of the things he did there is the second point of going to make spiritual means besides prepping the army and making destruction What else did also last?

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

He made you are

00:18:37--> 00:18:41

spiritually how many of us are doing our spiritual needs? How many of us every day

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

asking Allah

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

asking Allah for

00:18:47--> 00:18:56

the Hello curious how many of us are asking Allah for this on a daily basis? How many of us are fulfilling allows commanders

00:19:01--> 00:19:16

you know, meeting Muslims, we forget that if you want to help us we have to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala. So what do we need to do to earn Allah number one is to fulfill our obligations to Allah the number one obligation be pre five times a day.

00:19:17--> 00:19:20

pray five times a day are we praying the five daily follow up

00:19:22--> 00:19:30

the second one is to make sure our income is holla if our business is haram if it is funded upon haram if you are doing shady dealings, Allah is not going

00:19:31--> 00:19:32

to help us

00:19:33--> 00:19:39

and if it gives us a lot of money to that there's no Baraka the money it's a cost what is the punishment was and nothing good is gonna come out of it.

00:19:40--> 00:19:48

Are we eating how are we are we getting our food? Very important? Why important? That is why are we getting the money that we buy them?

00:19:49--> 00:19:53

Because if your money is around, it doesn't matter where you bought that food from the food is

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

making sure our intentions are noble. Whatever

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

Do Do we have the right intention? Even with our business? Do we have the right intention in our business? Are we doing business should we can fulfill our roles as a warm as providers for our families. This is something important to think about. And finally, apart from the spiritual needs, as you mentioned in the story of Rasulullah, sallAllahu Sallam

00:20:20--> 00:20:42

due diligence, major part of our daily practice, we do it every single day mean to Allah to put Baraka in our risk, allows in control, Allah is the only one who can change our budget. Allah makes the rich poor and the poor regional law changes people situations. So why are we going to the bank for help? If you're going to allow? Why are we going to the loan sharks to help each of us?

00:20:43--> 00:20:45

Why don't we raise our hands and

00:20:47--> 00:21:00

say we don't make the effort to make the effort then we make the dua and we put our tawakoni Allah at three step process, you go to work you ask Allah to accept your work and who Baraka in it, and then you just allow it what's gonna come on from there.

00:21:02--> 00:21:10

So part of the workflow is to make an effort if you are not making an effort, that's not just deviation. That's wrong. It's only sloppy.

00:21:12--> 00:21:15

The third step of the walk on is to develop a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:21:17--> 00:21:24

And this is where many of us fall apart. Many of us know Allah exists, but we live our lives in a way as if he doesn't exist.

00:21:26--> 00:21:29

We don't know we know about Allah, but we don't know.

00:21:30--> 00:21:45

We don't have the closest Allah subhanho wa Taala. And because we don't have the closest to him, we don't have that, that trustee. You trust those that you are close to trust your best friend, you trust your spouse, it's just appearance. When you don't know someone that trust is not there.

00:21:47--> 00:22:02

For the way to build trust allies to know where the more you know Allah, the more you're trusting Allah wills and Yana talking about the knowledge aspect earlier we spoke about the knowledge aspect. Now comes the practical side of it. The part of of implementing that knowledge into your life.

00:22:03--> 00:22:10

Firstly, to look inside our hearts and to ask ourselves, is my heart connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:22:12--> 00:22:16

Do I truly believe in Allah and the power of Allah?

00:22:18--> 00:22:27

Am I at peace with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala it's a very important part Am I at peace with the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the color of Allah.

00:22:28--> 00:22:43

And that takes us to the next step. And this is a very important step mentioned by even a module we are walking by hula, which is Krishna one villa in good of Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Hadith so could see, I am as my servant thinks

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

I am as my servant.

00:22:47--> 00:22:54

So if you think that Allah is some angry God, who's going to punish you and never forgive you, that's what you get.

00:22:55--> 00:22:59

But if you think that Allah is my loving,

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

my merciful,

00:23:04--> 00:23:10

my generous creator, who is going to take care of me. And that's what people forget.

00:23:11--> 00:23:33

We live in a time where push no one is going from us, we only have one of each other, which means one needs to think good about us. We assume the worst of each other. And I mentioned this before, when you did the Duchy of Surah odorata we have to revive the full national one when dealing with other people think the best of other people Yahushua has done to the extent the all the scholars went to

00:23:36--> 00:23:37

even came on Julian.

00:23:39--> 00:23:47

He said that if I saw alcohol dripping from the blood, the deal of someone, I wouldn't assume that somebody else put alcohol on him.

00:23:49--> 00:23:53

He said if I heard someone say Malala is reciting Quran.

00:23:56--> 00:24:05

One, taking the best of someone will be the opposite. We say oh, this guy is a weak and why they must be up to something. He must be

00:24:10--> 00:24:46

wrong with each other. Even more important is this question is not about Allah. Don't you talk to the average Muslim to the whole community. Our thoughts about Allah are really what we know we think of Allah, this angle, because we just want to send everybody to join them. I know where this idea came from, because Allah subhanho wa Taala he said, he created his mercy, and he splitted into 100 portions, and only one question of His mercy sent to this dunya and he saved the other 99% for the Day of Judgment. So whatever works you see in this world is just 1% of mercy. Everything else you see for the Day of Judgment, that's a lot.

00:24:48--> 00:24:55

Why do we believe in the mercy of Allah? Why don't we believe in the justice of Asha what Allah think good about Allah.

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

Think about Allah.

00:25:00--> 00:25:07

Do you make dua that Allah is going to answer this door in one way or another. Remember, when you meet to our

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

Villa, they are not going to grant us one of three things. He's either gonna answer our duar exactly what we asked for.

00:25:17--> 00:25:28

Or he's gonna give us better than what we asked for. Or he's going to protect us from some calamity instead, because he knows what we asked was not good for us. Either way, he's giving us something.

00:25:30--> 00:25:31

We don't have the

00:25:32--> 00:25:36

heart of the walk, who needs to take good weather, whatever comes out, I'm not gonna give me what I need.

00:25:39--> 00:25:51

So much was done. When you come to your business. And it comes to your work, you go to work, you run your business you do whatever it is that you do on your desk, in the hallway, at the end of the day, what Allah is gonna take care of Allah is gonna provide

00:25:52--> 00:26:19

it is nothing to stress about there's nothing to Allah taking care of me, that's pushing me to assume the best about Allah subhana wa Tada. And even on those days and those months where you don't really make much of a profit with where you're doing badly. You still think the best of Allah, Allah has given me less this month, because Allah wants me to be a better Muslim. He wants me to be less attached to dinner maybe I'm getting too attached the lunia that should always give me a difficult match we can realize much more important

00:26:22--> 00:26:35

lessons difficulty dollar like the difference between a person of Bushmills gone and a person who does not have does not have to talk about a lot. The person who has good thoughts about Allah when a difficulty comes to him, he says, Allah is testing me and purifying your mindsets.

00:26:36--> 00:26:39

And the person who there's nothing good about Allah when he says Allah is punishing me.

00:26:40--> 00:26:52

measly minute punishment, less punishment was testing you. If you go into see that just a punishment, it becomes a punishment. So think good about Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is part of

00:26:54--> 00:26:54

the next step

00:26:56--> 00:26:58

is to get rid of the wasp Versace.

00:26:59--> 00:27:10

Allah has told us in the Quran that he will provide watch, don't worry about it. And in the same Quran, Allah has warned us shaytan will threaten you with fear of poverty.

00:27:11--> 00:27:31

This is one of the specific things Allah mentioned all the chapter Sridhar Allah specifically mentioned this one. What Allah What is she putting our hearts fear of poverty. That's why today we have billionaires, billionaires who are afraid of poverty. They're afraid of losing everything on that, you know, Bitcoin crashes, I'm done.

00:27:32--> 00:27:38

I'm finished. The guy do the 7 million he still got a million he commits suicide, fear of poverty.

00:27:40--> 00:28:05

We need to get rid of them. So we need to know Satan's plan and we need to fight against it. She was going to put the thoughts in your in your head, he's going to tell you If I don't take her Barbies. No, I'm done. I'm going to be poor for the rest of my life. She danced on you there was a lot of you. What Allah told you Firstly, if you change a law, you waging war with Allah, Allah.

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

Allah.

00:28:09--> 00:28:12

Secondly, Allah promised you in the Quran, me yet.

00:28:15--> 00:28:16

For me,

00:28:18--> 00:28:30

it's not the law. Interesting. This is the law because normally it's the law that people are scared about the future. Allah says in Surah, Allah, whoever has taqwa of Allah.

00:28:31--> 00:28:43

Allah will open the doors for them illegally out for them, and will provide for them from where they live. Imagine when we hit the wall. Whoever has tawakoni Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:28:45--> 00:28:57

Allah has promised to entscheidung Cousteau what we're saying your head counter to the promise of Allah when she doesn't, if you don't do XYZ around you're going to be poor. So you know Allah said he's enough for me. Aspirin Allah, Allah

00:28:58--> 00:29:00

Allah say that

00:29:02--> 00:29:12

we must read our heart of the worst part of shaper because these words was as they grow into thoughts and these thoughts they grow into feeling and these feelings they grow into beliefs and then the consumers

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

so whenever she dances these thoughts are we get rid of them? Because they are going to get in the way of your tawakkol

00:29:20--> 00:29:21

and the final step of the

00:29:23--> 00:29:27

game oh god arrested as the week before we

00:29:29--> 00:29:40

hand everything over to the weed means to literally hand the matter over and hire Nicola to say, Oh Allah, I woke up today. I did everything I could. I pray to my soul or

00:29:41--> 00:29:46

whatever he's gonna get to the end of the day. No, I'm leaving it in your hands. Now you have

00:29:47--> 00:29:51

you produce something it took you 10 years to produce it. You put it out on the market.

00:29:54--> 00:29:58

you hand over the map. This is really the essence of

00:29:59--> 00:29:59

the free

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

The essence of tobacco to just hand things over to Allah after your major effort to see what the work is all about. And again, you go back to the Battle of butter.

00:30:08--> 00:30:21

And when Rostow last lesson was beaten to Albuquerque, and I told him like your major, now let's leave it to Allah. Let's go fight the battle and leave the result to Allah. This is a free just handing over to Allah.

00:30:23--> 00:30:40

When Rasulullah was in Abu Bakar, remaking the heater and the heating the cable, and that's as much physical effort as you could make this, there's nothing more you can do beyond that. This is literally to Allah, Allah to Allah to keep me protected every decade, even though the disbelievers pass right by them.

00:30:41--> 00:30:43

So when it comes to our business,

00:30:45--> 00:30:48

and it comes to our work, do we hand the metal over to a laptop?

00:30:51--> 00:30:54

Now, I mentioned at the beginning of this talk with that,

00:30:55--> 00:31:01

linked to tawakkol his belief in God and now we'll show you how they link together.

00:31:02--> 00:31:05

We said the wound is trusting Allah with your future

00:31:06--> 00:31:18

link to that when it comes to what's already happened, comes the accepting of accepting your destiny, too many of us will do it the wrong way. You know, we say you decide how much money you're going to

00:31:23--> 00:31:23

need.

00:31:24--> 00:31:26

That's the wrong approach.

00:31:28--> 00:31:33

the right approach is you work hard, you put your tawakoni Allah then after it's over.

00:31:37--> 00:31:45

It's over. Right? So even came on Judea. He said after you make the waffles, and you receive the result of whatever the effort was,

00:31:46--> 00:31:56

Here comes one of the greatest actually bother you can do next and internal act of ibadah. And that is Florida bill harder to be happy with your destiny.

00:31:58--> 00:32:19

Now not everybody can do this show a lower level in this for the average Muslim is to accept your there is a difference. There is a difference between someone who accepts his destiny as someone who's happy with his destiny, what's the difference? We see in the lives of the Sahaba. You know, for example, nowadays, someone's husband passes away. Right? That person is in the Leela Udemy runs, you may be someone that's accepting

00:32:20--> 00:32:27

the Sahaba, the husband would die in the battle is 100. And my husband accept me as a mother. That's

00:32:30--> 00:32:35

That's the difference. Right? someone loses their business.

00:32:37--> 00:32:56

They making stubborn is accepting the destiny, say Allah to disobey. Allah has something better than for me, and I'm happy with that. That's being pleased with your destiny. And this is really hard. This is the greatest act of worship is such an extension of some of the books say that ridable Kala is one of the quality of the Odia because he

00:32:58--> 00:32:59

used to be happy when things go wrong.

00:33:01--> 00:33:39

It's that hard. But this is you know, if you want to add an extra reward, to be happy with what you get. So how does this work? Let me give you a practical example. Putting all of this together in the context of business. You wake up in the morning, and you start today with a budget to remind yourself to allow your provider a lot either Karim Allah, Allah hub, Allah is most generous allow you to go against Allah is going to take care of you go to work to make your effort because it is watching. When I ask you how you and your reason. So you go you do hard work. You make sure you are earning a lot of money. You make a lot with Baraka in your efforts for the day. If she can send any

00:33:39--> 00:33:55

thoughts to you throughout the day you put those thoughts aside, you think good of Allah, you trust Allah, you are peaceful Allah, at the end of the day you close your shop, you go home you handle with, relax, enjoy your evening. And whatever money you get at the end of the month when you calculate your book.

00:33:58--> 00:34:00

Why? Because you did.

00:34:02--> 00:34:02

The end result is

00:34:03--> 00:34:07

100 mega, he promised last time he won the battle of butter.

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

The battle award he didn't win it.

00:34:14--> 00:34:25

Right. So have I learned important lessons and humbler important verses of the Quran Olivia hamdulillah This is accepting your mother, you will be pleased with your brother.

00:34:27--> 00:34:59

So when we do our businesses, when we go to work, the entire process is part of the workflow. From the time you wake up until you go to bed at night. tawakkol is there and he South Africa we have so much more opportunities to make the work. And when you lock your door and you come to the masjid and you just allow that no criminals are breaking into your home or your car your business that stole from you and you work for that for that believe. When you resign I will pull it and then you relax. That's that's belief in Allah that's tawakkol this reward for them.

00:35:01--> 00:35:42

So yes, we live in a community that's full of crime and full of corruption and full of poverty and we ask Allah to get rid of all of their intermediaries from amongst the most blessed and beautiful of communities in the world. But while we are here, we take this opportunity to practice the walk, to trust Allah with our safety, trust Allah without protection. So, just to conclude, just to recap everything very quickly. The Wankel is amongst the greatest internal apps of worship, every believer is part of our wakita. We must trust Allah. pata tawakkol is to know who Allah is part of the world is to make your effort in a hurry to avoid all around sources of income. Part of the goal is to make

00:35:42--> 00:35:48

dua for the good of Allah. Part of the goal is to get rid of the whispers of shaker

00:35:49--> 00:36:11

and part of the waku. The final part is to hand over the empty cell to Allah. And after tawakkol, to accept your father, you do all of this. Your entire existence is worship of Allah, you in that shop, whether you're selling burgers, or you're selling tools, or you're selling hardware or software computers, you're doing the vodka, you will drink the water. It is an act of worship.

00:36:13--> 00:36:33

If we do all of these things, every day our entire lives become an act of worship. And when you have the walk going Allah you will never turn to haram sources of income, you will never turn to the Barbies floor. You will never turn to shady dealings, because you trust Allah that if I stick to Allah, Allah will provide for me.

00:36:34--> 00:36:34

We

00:36:36--> 00:37:13

are asking Allah, to put into our hearts the reality of the steam the love for him, is correct understanding of this deal, to make us from those who truly believe in the practice upon what we believe, to be Baraka in the risk of each and every one of us. Those amounts of Allah has blessed with abundant grace to make it pure and Allah and bless as a means of benefiting the oma those amongst us who Allah has tested with less risk, we ask Allah to grant him abundance and to make hear from those who are wealthy and to make the drought blessed and pure, and to make it a source of food for this ummah, and to make it such that we don't have to worry about dunya so we can focus in our

00:37:13--> 00:37:15

after work with our 100

00:37:16--> 00:37:19

but Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato
