Series: Jamal Zarabozo - Al Fatiha
From the Los
Angeles today, we'll continue with our discussion of economic
strain stain concentrating on the second part.
Actually, when we finished last time, we were kind of in the middle of very important concepts as to what economic strain really mean and what they imply when you say them in the
economic boom, oh, by the way, once again, as we said with respect to and hence we said that hunt encompasses the meaning of Laila a lot. And New York and Abu also encompasses our share this shed one night and a lot, because here we are testifying, we are making a promise to Allah subhanho wa Taala Packard almost 200. Without it, this will worship none other than Him. And this is what we mean when we say said I made this practical for the implementation of our Shahada to worship known as in homeless
and then when we come to here can stain. So the first part means you alone, or you only do emotion.
And the second part means that in you alone, or you only do we seek help.
So this part of the verse here kind of staying
here you are admitting your powerlessness in front of Allah subhana wa Tada. And you are stating it in front of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And the kind of escape of humility and submission,
stating your resignation before the will and the power will listen to it. And the purpose behind that or the goal behind that.
As we said last time is the kind of job you are hoping that in return homeless man with Allah, He will then give you help.
In the same way, as we said last time, when you hear the woman said, Hi, Alison, Ireland, hello, your responses that hello and
then what you mean by that response, you are being called to something called to the prayer call to the success.
And you are stating and foremost, out of the fact that no one has any power and ability other than the helicopter. So for most men without it doesn't help you, and doesn't give you the power and the ability to do something, then you know that you in fact don't have any power.
And then when you seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala he said, the relationship between the two, the most important things that we can ask Allah subhana wa Taala for help in is actually worshiping Allah subhana wa tada because as we spoke about at length, the most honorable physician, the most exalted states that a human being can be in, is being a servant to Allah subhana wa Tada.
So the most important thing that we can seek help in from our lesson on how to work to Allah is to seek help in worshiping Allah. She kept on doing those things that are pleasing to almost 100 with that.
However, there's also a kind of beautiful kind of dynamic process also that goes on here. Because when you say, Yeah, I can I will do and, of course, all of this is if you say it's with the real intention, meaning it's understanding what it means and and, and being truthful to what you're saying. It's just words running off important that's a different story, obviously. But when you say you can Alberto by Yakima Stein,
here in the statements when you say you're gonna stain as we said, you are submitting yourself or scanning for less than 100 ricotta stating your helplessness told us to handle $1 and at the same time, demonstrating the fact that you believe in all this man with data having the power and the ability to help you. So you are turning to Allah subhanaw taala when you say yeah, can
you remember just behind it or what should be going on is this you are turning towards Allah subhana wa.
And the meaning of the stain is the kind of job this is a draw. When you say, Yeah, I can assign it to a girl. That's why I'm the head excuses. We mentioned last time unless your head was out of says this is between me and my snake. And then all of a sudden what God has said, Will he be my son? And for my sermon is what he asked for he asked him he's asking he's implying he's asking for help from a listener.
But when you turn to almost nine words,
and you make God's Will dismantle a goddess and she then this actually is
had kind of a better
I suppose I said, I'm told us a better position and told us that God is.
And when you make our bed, it's almost unheard of with Allah, then Allah subhanho wa Taala will turn to you and help. In other words, God helps those who are willing to worship him properly.
And the more that you wish to listen or God or the more you make it by this to Allah subhanaw taala properly, the more or less in handle with God.
So in this sense here, actually, we have kind of a two stage process almost
where you first you state the goal as you said, the goal is to worship all this federal data and then you state the moves. But actually in the process of stating the means getting the help from Allah subhanaw taala you're also doing an accurate or better care. In the slots you're already turning towards Allah subhanaw taala and if you turn towards Allah subhana wa Tada. Then unless God turns towards you would have
an effect I think, early on in one of these lectures, we already read the Hadith from the policy
in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says intercommunal a leave is sovereign,
there are going to survey later on.
When I said EMC are capable of
data is saying that he comes to me has length and I come to them before arm's length. And if they come to me for arm's length, they come to them on arms race, and if they come to me walking, I come to him I should say, I come to him running.
So we see in this country, then when someone turns solace Allah Tada, Allah Subhana, WA tada turns to them even more. So just from this process, the first phase our goal yet and
then when we sincerely say to all those hurdles, and understand what's missing yaquina Stein, we're going to seek help only and you only need to seek help. Then we've already actually started the process of worshiping Allah subhana wa tada and inshallah getting parts of that help back from Allah.
And remember, you can consider this a covenant or patch that you make with Allah subhana wa tada he economical Boy, you can
listen between a lion a servant, this is a pact between Allah and a servant. And if you fulfill your pack,
you can be certain that Alyson handleless Adam will fulfill His covenant as you set to run and run and stable says Of course, general meeting, goals will be out he he could fulfill my covenant and I will fulfill your covenant to so when you fulfill this covenant that you're making with Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allah Subhana wirkkala will also fulfill His covenant.
Now, as we stated, the most important thing that someone can seek help from Allah subhana wa tada is to have Allah subhanaw taala help him help the individual worship Allah subhana wa tada proper,
but actually, if you look at Iraq in this time, it does not state the objects what is it that we want, so,
there is no staining of the objects here.
And so, therefore, you can say that actually just general yaquina stain has been left as many of us at INSEAD logics has not been influenced so that the concept can be generally applied to anything.
In other words, anything that you need help him he turned to Allah subhana wa tada
whether it is religious matters or worldly matters,
he already said that Allah subhanho wa Taala is a little bit out of me. So, anything in this dunya if you need help with anything has to do you have to turn to Allah.
However, at the same time,
we also mentioned the fact that the scope of
the real concept of a band and the scope of it covers every aspect of life.
Even the permissible G's that you do, can be a kind of a band that can be something pleasing to us.
So even in this aspect, we say that the meaning of the EQ and the strain is general for any kind of rule you need for any kind of help that you need.
In reality, any kind of realm of life you can turn that into a better or worse.
So no matter what kind of aspect of life you need help in when you short to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Still, you have to check all this data to get help but even all of these things, no matter what they can be made inactive about it and activation from Alyson handles that
So in every realm, every aspect you turn for listeners out of her house, but you always can tie it into the main goal of worshipping Allah subhana wa tada and only worshipping Allah.
But this is obviously, when you get to that point where you realize, as we talked about before, that all these actions can be inactive or better and you're conscious of what you're doing. You're conscious of your goal of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala, and trying to make as much of your actions, conscious acts of worship of others.
And when you read this sort, obviously when you read the sort of 17 times a day, it should be a reminder of this goal of yours, that your goal is to worship Allah subhanaw
actually comes to the help
of the believers in many different ways.
And so therefore, we are seeking to handle a Dallas help when we see this as a suggestion so it is actually a draw to Allah subhanaw taala
and we can see from the Quran and from the Sunnah of the prophet SAW Selim, how Allah subhana wa tada helps the believers, obviously in this life, and obviously again, it may be even more obvious in the curiosity. But in both this life and in the Hereafter, fellas, nanowatt data helps and protects the believers.
And sometimes we are not always aware of how much on what ways all this data helps us.
And we are not always aware of what we're supposed to do to get to health and wellness.
We were not aware always of how much I listened to what God helps us. So you can take two people one was very much aware of what what God is doing for him and how all of a sudden, oh, God is helping him. And another person who doesn't think much about it isn't very conscious about it, or hasn't given it much thought
between these two, which one do you think would have a better relationship with God
will be more desiring to come closer to
and be more designed to worship Allah subhana wa tada and love to disobey Allah son, of
course, cetera services in economics, all other factors being held trusting the one who recognizes these facts and thinks about these facts, he'll be much more appreciative, have much more of a feeling of gratitude towards all the time with the island, and express the real hump in action deeds in his heart, than the one who does not even consider these things. And basically, that's one thing about
that the more conscious you are of reality, the more conscious you are about what is going on. And don't just take life as if it's just passing by you don't even think though what's happening to you, what's occurring around you. The more conscious you are about what is going on around you, the stronger he mentioned.
Because that should develop a much stronger relationship, call us anytime. But if you're feeling those people who are heedless, who go through life, every day that she listens in front of them, they see things in front of them, that should remind them of Allah subhanaw taala that you make them think about Alyson our daughter, that she makes them think about how much they obey or disobey all this nanopowder
if you're mindless of all of these things, and obviously you're you're a man who's not to be affected by any of them. So if we think about our life, here we can see how Allah subhanho wa Taala has perfected the believers in how Allah subhanaw powder treats mankind in this world. And in fact, as I said, the more someone tries to worship Allah subhanaw taala the more someone turns on the Son of God, then I'll listen to what God was protecting the prophets I send them to that even abdus to zone contains the puzzle system said
a fairly digital today
that if you guard the limits of Allah subhanaw taala In other words, if you worship Allah shrine with Allah, Allah will protect you. And if you guard the limits of Allah subhanaw taala you will find him in front of you.
And also the process of unfolding when I first started off he life.
Goddess GFI said
that you should know all of your henna ricotta during times of ease. And this is a mistake, of course that mushrikeen non believers have the oldest make and unfortunately we Muslims also fall into analogies. You should know all this and without a growing sense of ease. And Alyssa handleless Allah will Norio during times of hardship, in other words, I look for and work out and will help you and come to your aid during times of hardship. So for example, you don't pray late at night just because you have a final the next day and we're hoping to listen to our data to help you on this the first time you ever prayed.
you pay a knife when things are going easy for you and then when you face difficulties, then inshallah Allah Subhana Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has promised those who do good that Allah subhanaw taala will give them a good life, as long as none of the goddesses will put on Miami lasallian home in Ducker in oza to home in Philadelphia in Ohio.
COVID works righteousness, whether male or female, why he or she is a believer, verily to him, we will give a good life.
So let's have a look
at some of the setup is to say even when we think about our children, for example, and how we want to do what is best for our children, and this is something that I mentioned here for a reason, because when we think about the situation of many Muslims nowadays, when they're concerned about their children, one of the main things that they're concerned about their children is whether or not they're going to get a good education, whether or not they're going to be able to make it in this world. Make it of course, from a worldly point of view, so they have to get the best education go to the best schools and all that stuff. But one of the best ways actually too, if you're really
interested in helping yourself, one of the best ways that you can help your child inshallah is to be obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Because if you are obedient to Allah subhanaw taala, Allah subhanho wa Taala will love you, and will protect those things which are dear to you. One of the examples of scholars always give when they talk about this point, is the story instead of a cap above the treasure that was under the wall. And when you fix the wall, put the wall back in place.
What was the reason behind it, because the trigger underneath it almost ran what God wanted them to get the trigger, because if the wall would have gone apart, then people would have been seen the treasure, and maybe they would have taken.
from the demand of Allah subhanaw taala. And what was one of the things that explicitly mentioned to Muslim is that when you mentioning their case for Canada or boohoo Masada, their father was a righteous man. Their father was a righteous man. So your Lord wanted them to reach ways so that they can take their work.
So this is what kind of homosassa
but here's causation. Because of that. Your Lord wanted him to reach the age of maturity, so they could take it away. So therefore was fires and because their father was pious, Allah subhana wa tada predicted.
This is the real key not just for our children, but even for ourselves. If he wants to preserve ourselves,
if he wants to do what is good for ourselves, obviously, we have to turn towards Allah.
And if we ever think about getting ahead, in ways which are displeasing call us on our data, then we should know that we are headed for failure. In fact, almost metadata gives those people who are devoted to him and worship him properly, or listen to what God gives them ways out of difficulties, and makes life easy for them as well as Dallas's
is the one who fears God has couple of us and no ricotta. Then Alison had to work out it will make a way out for him from every difficulty
but again, going back to our verse here yeah can Abu akena stain and reminding ourselves of the goal of our life here can Abu the worship of Allah subhana wa tada
obviously the most important thing that we can be protected by Allah subhana wa tada
has to do with our genes and protecting our gene, saving our gene from innovations, saving our gene from misconceptions not understanding the deen properly saving ourselves from straying completely away from the gene one hour we learn all these things these are some of the most important things by which we can eat protected from by Allah subhana wa tada well listen to what Donna
protects those people who are devoted to him, protects them from evil Jana with respect to the morals and again we can find many examples of that and put on one of them is with respect to use of Allah subhana wa tada says because Attica unicity behind who Sumo will first shot was in the home in a bed in
the us it was that we might turn away from him evil, and then fascia here illegal sexual intercourse. Surely he was one of our chosen guidance slaves.
And in fact, one of the ways that all is handled without it may protect our genes.
Maybe a way that again, we are not the world. But if we think about it and give it some time, maybe we would realize that maybe something of this nature has actually occurred to us and many scholars have pointed it out. And then as well as the analysts out, it turns us away from something that we may want
is that thing will be harmful to our Deen in the long run.
As we know, we don't know where, or at least we should realize the stakes. Sometimes Unfortunately, we don't realize this factor, we act like we don't realize this right? We should realize that we don't know where our good lives. What might be good for us in the long run when my team will first and foremost to handle with data need prevent this from something people send something like a position of authority, or some kind of wealth or something in order to preserve us. And this is what the Sahaba even The surgeon said, even Massoud said that a person may desire some kind of wealth or position
and he may be close to it but Allah will fit his angels to turn them away from it for how to achieve that goal it would have led him to the hellfire. So let's move on with our promises to protect them be the guardian of the believers, as Allah subhanaw taala says a lower level of
because I love the protection Guardian has also been he brings them out from darkness into light.
So if we turn to Allah subhana wa tada
and worship Allah Subhana, WA tada sincerely. And we try our best
to bail the sandwich out and fulfill all of nanopowders life's upon us. then in turn Allah subhanho wa Taala, who fulfill our needs in both this world and here.
But that basic obligation, of course, is that we have to worship Allah subhanaw taala and try our best to worship Allah subhanaw taala and have that always as our main goal in life, you have to be careful always to be conscious of that main goal. And even what you're doing always should be surrounded by the fact that we are trying to worship Allah subhanaw taala that we have no other goal other than trying to worship God.
Now in this verse in the Quran, when we say he can stain, the meaning of this verse also is found in the Hadith of the Prophet, which I'm, again going to bring up for a very specific reason.
And this is a heavy that I alluded to earlier. And that's the headings of evidence.
And why I want to just maybe spend a few moments on it. Because again, it highlights some of the differences between us, the Muslim community, and how perhaps we are supposed to be with respect to Allah subhanaw taala. And this head is in the process. When a bus was riding behind the procession, the father says to them told him yellow lamb in your limo.
He saw them all young boy, I'm going to teach you some words. And these words that's supposed to sit and toss it and I bet
some of them we already mentioned any of that if you go to listen without our listener without regard. In other words, if you worship a listener without if you're mindful, listening without Allah will protect you.
Among the other things that the prophet SAW Selim told him, he said, either, sir, just any
way the stanza sustained below
the promises, animals have told him that if you ask for anything, then ask Allah. And if you seek help, then seek help in a lot.
And then the heavies contingency We'll talk later about some of the other portions of the headings. These are basic, basic concepts.
Secondly, the headings and Ibis is very much related to E economic UI, I can explain many of the meanings or sub meanings are directly in their hobbies.
And as I said, these are essential concepts that every Muslim should understand.
Now, when the Polish socialism guide,
given our bus was about 13 years old,
so that means that the politician and obviously the province has said these words to him and I bet some time before the public says that
most of us was 13 years old, when the politician said these words to him.
So this means that by the age of 13, the policy is conveying
they important and core concepts given our bus.
Now if you compare that to how we treat our youth nowadays,
and his idea of teaching our youth nowadays, even the basic and the core concepts of Islam, I've been to many conferences in the past, but in the past, if you go to
you'll find the course the main lectures. And then there'll be programs for the youth. And usually those programs for the youth club to 20, sometimes 2122. And so while we're giving lectures on Islam and the main, and the main form, and those lectures are usually pretty basic, right, there's nothing too difficult. Because I usually are playing and doing things that will you know, how to make them have fun, and enjoy the conference. I remember one time, this was a conference in Stanford, there was a youth 19 years old. And he had finished his bachelor's degree, and he was starting his master's. I saw him, you know, in the youth thing, and they were like, playing bicycles in the
world, the lectures are going on.
And I said, you know, why don't you because I know I know, his father. I know. And so I said, Why don't you come on in and listen to lectures and stuff is too heavy for us.
He graduated from Stanford in 19, anything that was too heavy for our kids. But in reality, that's the way most parents and teenagers in college.
Many of them I should say, not most, many of them are approaches. And they don't feel that they have any responsibility. They don't realize the time they reach puberty, they are now legally responsible for every action that they do. And Islamic law. So by the time they reach puberty, they're legally responsible. That means they have to get some teachings before puberty.
There should be some training, some understanding, before puberty.
You know, if you ask some years nowadays, the economic strain, what does that mean? That
even a translation of it, not to speak of, you know what it means and in any visa. So in this study is the process for the university if you ask pasola, because you seek help seek help and Allah has here he is an absolutely yakka in this day.
So here we are commanded by Allah subhana wa Tada. And actually, I should say, we are making a pact with a listener of God that we should ask no one, other than a lesson with that.
And when you read what the scholars have said about this point,
you'll see how even just asking someone else for help asking someone else to do something for you, asking someone else for help, begging for wealth for money and stuff like that. Even this kind of thing, actually, when you read what the scholars have to say about it, you'll see that it is something that a Muslim actually should try to avoid.
he said that and if it also the basic warning is it is forbidden to ask someone else for something. And he said at the most you can say it is permissible.
And in cases of necessity, it is permissible.
Like the one who is starving, eating Korean.
So you should not ask about us, you should only ask from Alyssa Hamlet.
Okay, so let me do this part first, and then we'll discuss exactly what this means. Because if you ask for malicious data,
as time continued, he said, when you ask someone else, he turns to someone else and ask them for something. He said this is going to help over here to do more respect to help us run without his little beer.
To have to,
and it says going down with respect to inflation.
And this is what happened not
long with respect to the rights of the soul and the individual.
Because when you turn for anyone other than Allah subhanho wa Taala
you are turning to someone else who is a human being just like you has no more ability than what you have.
So when you have to turn and ask a human being for something, as you said a guy who drives a kind of a buy the one last, if you are kind of degrading yourself in front of the other person. I'm giving you what Darla said and then we'll go back over your kind of degrading yourself in front of the other person who is as I said, No more than an equal to say my magnitudes up he used to say Paula, in the same way that you have kept my face from prostrating to other than you protect me from asking anyone other than me.
So, this kind of asking and it just kind of asking should be reserved only for listening. This kind of degradation or showing some kind of need to someone should be with respect to own
and with respect to mankind, as you said it is wrong. It is evolved with respect
That's for a number of reasons that I mentioned. One thing as we said, You're asking someone who itself has no power and cannot be the world he was in.
But also when you asked him a human being, you are taking something from them, which in general, they do not like it, they don't like to give their time and like to give the money in general, Alaska. So when you're asking something that has a hole, the majority of mankind actually do not like. And with respect to the individual himself, as you said, it is a kind of degrading of the class someone other than almost 100.
And, in fact, the policy
as recorded in St. Muslim and a couple of days, we see that the policy silom even took a pledge from some of the Sahaba.
In one generation, it is described that there was sitting with the Bossa cinema group about nine or eight to seven,
and the procession and said, Why don't you make that to the Messenger of Allah?
They just make that insulation we have just made that to listen to Allah. So again, he said, Why don't you make down to the Messenger of Allah? So then they said, All messenger love, what would you like us to make? Do and they stretched out their hand to the mobile system, and the focus lesson told them, they made the pledge to him that they would worship Allah subhanaw taala not describe any partner to him.
And they would perform the fire selects, and they would obey
when necessary, and do not ask anyone for anything. And do not ask anyone for anything. And the narrator had, he said, I saw some of the people that move, if they would drop the whip that used to the camel to get them to move, if they were dropped that they would never ask anyone to pick it up.
And let her have you. The process of them basically said that I guarantee Jenna for anyone who does not ask anybody for anything.
And he only asked us if
we can say that this is the epitome of
the this is part of our goal when we talk about who wants to make our event as much and as complete as possible. This should be part of our goal towards Allah subhana wa tada that we're always turning just to listen and which
is why I need to turn to listen, when
we pray when we make God we pray for
the worship, we worship only Allah subhana wa Tada, all of our acts of all of our rites of worship are only directed towards all of us.
And this is the goal that we should try to achieve. And we say yes, Stein, as I said, we are not only admitting our own lack of power, that we cannot do anything unless Ellis Island gives us the ability.
But we also denying that anyone else has any power other than
when we say you can have a stain, we also are not just telling all of a sudden without helping you. But we are also affirming that no one other than God has any ability to help or anything of that nature.
So therefore, when we turn to other human beings and ask them for help,
then as we said it is kind of a deficiency with respect to this complete worship of Allah subhanho wa Taala but instead we should turn to Allah subhanaw taala demonstrating our belief that all this hard work out is able to fulfill all needs.
Because when you when you turn towards others, you might be forgetting the fact that actually almost none of what Allah fulfills. So turn to Allah subhana wa tada
tada for help, and you shall love your beautiful so Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala will come to your aid inshallah.
Now, that is, as I said, that is the goal that we're trying to achieve. And it doesn't mean that everyone will achieve that and doesn't mean that if you don't achieve that, that you are faster for something of that nature, but you have not achieved the best that you can.
Now having stated what they said obviously, even in the example of the process in the morning, the caribou Sahaba we do find cases where someone asked for something from somebody else asked for help from somebody else again, even in the example of bonuses. And in the example of the Sahaba we can see that occurred. So the polycephalum took
from certain people.
He did not take
They are from all the Muslims, he took that bale from certain people and allow them he must have known that these are the people who have imagined that they can fulfill that bear and therefore it gets a deserved reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala for fulfilling that there. So, he did not take that veil from all of this.
However, at the same time, the fact that he took that day and the fact that he made the game to to anyone who does not ask from others that they will be in two gentlemen, this shows us that it is something number one, it is something inshallah achievable, not something beyond human means. And it is something that we should think about, and try to move towards,
at the very least, is something that we should think about and try to move towards.
But to break the question down a little bit further, there's two kinds of asking
from us two types of asking from us, one is completely haram to ask of others, other than all the time with that. And the other one, the other category is that category, which is not
a part of
the category, which is
basically is that category related to asking others to do things which are not within their ability
or to negate any power or strengthen oneself and to put it in someone or to think that someone else has it.
So for example,
and to ask someone, for example, to give you guidance, to put guidance into your heart, to increase your
passion, someone from the things of the unseen.
These are things which only Allah subhanaw taala can do.
So if you turn to people, human beings enact these kinds of things, then you're violating actually the basics of what you are promising here with a lesson with that. And that includes, by the way, turning to people who are no longer live the deceased whether they are saints and prophets, they are no longer able to work in this
so therefore there's no use no purpose no meaning in turning to them and asking of them, this kind of asking is forbidden
in many places, warnings of this this nature but in one case almost kind of speaks about turning to those people and praying to those people cannot even hear what you're saying Allah subhanho wa Taala says, women are Bologna Magneto in junie Lyman lista de bajo la Gama fam if he will hold a few times I love him.
Allah subhana wa tada says, and who is more strange than the other than Allah, such as will not answer him to the given direction, and who is even unaware of the prayers that is sent to them.
So this kind of asking obviously can only be done over this picture.
Now asking somebody a human being to do something, which is normally within their building.
This opens up for human beings here we know what each other can do, basically, what is normally within somebody's ability.
This we can do and if you are asked to help, we should be willing to help and if someone asks you, you should be willing to help Allah subhana wa tada tells us with our ability
to help one another and actually fighting lusciousness.
But even this kind of asking, even this kind of asking, that's from that category that goes Sahaba, who made the best of the both of them would not even do.
So who wants to say to perfection, if I can use a word, perfect are Shahid perfect, are they bad of Allah subhana wa Tada, then even these things, we should try our best tools, like if you have the ability to do something ourselves.
And we're looking at what God has given us the ability to do something ourselves, we should do it and not ask somebody else to do.
This is part of our trying to fulfill our
we have the ability to do something, we should never ask anybody else to do it.
And then there's also
there's also another essential aspects when you ask another human being to do something. And that is that you have to be fully conscious of the fact
that you are not putting your trust or reliance in that person.
In other words, you have to realize that even that person, even if you ask that person
that's almost got to come to your brain and gives that person the ability to do what it is then he's not going to be able to do so even when you ask somebody else to do something, you're still putting your trust in relation almost. You are hoping that Allah subhanaw taala will allow him and give him the ability to fulfill your request. Because otherwise even the simplest of things a human being cannot do and the solution
If you ask me to give you right now across the street, he could walk out the door, I just slip and fall, break my leg or my car doesn't start again.
So when you ask someone to come fix your car, you have to realize that you're not, there's not that person is going to have the ability, sometimes literally.
But it's not in that person's control to fix your car, but it's actually not our job, if it gives that person the ability to do it, so that he will be able to help you. So I even when asking someone else, first of all, when you ask someone else, and we said earlier, human beings don't really like to be asked a lot less to be asked. And I was waiting for your call about this emulator. So first, has to make the hearts of that person willing to listen to your request.
So first and foremost, nanopowder doesn't make his heart open to requests. He might even say yes, inshallah, but he has no intention whatsoever of doing.
But then even if he says yes, and inshallah, by the way, Sal is also a dryer like he is going to stain, and he seems a lot better, because you're asking Allah to help you do it.
He's not alone. But even if he has the intention to do work, he may not be able to do even if it's a normal, everyday routine, that he might usually be able to do. So even when asked me about others, you are still putting your trust and realize you're hoping in Allah subhanaw taala that he will need this person first of all, to have the happiness to do for you and then inshallah to be able to fulfill it. And in fact, in the rest of this heavy for David Ibis, the most obvious reason and it goes back to the fact that Listen, I know without without, I mean, the most obvious reasons and it doesn't make any sense to us, me past others and turn to others other than all those hurdles.
Because the both of us have been so young, even our bus ride them and all medalla which turned into our condition, millions Okay, liberation could have a whole level
when it comes
to the machine, hittable Alec suppose such an intuitive and our bus no should realize that of the nation we're together together to benefit you by something, they will not be able to benefit you unless Allah subhana wa tada had written for you.
And if they gather together to harm you, maybe this is the one that we have to remember more often. Because when we are afraid of harm done, we start thinking of any way to escape, if they were together together to harm you with something that would not be able to harm you with anything except what Allah subhanaw taala has recorded against you. So if no one can harm you or benefit you, except for homeless men, which Allah and what Allah subhanaw taala decreed, then what is the purpose What is the use of turning to anyone other than Allah subhana wa Tada.
And in fact, it is part of our understanding of faith that whatever looking into what God has decreed is going to occur.
And we have to realize that track that we cannot escape, whatever I was trying to recall is the cause. And effect is
this is the condition Happy,
everything has a hacker guy reality to it. And now the servant does not reach the reality of a man until he realizes that whatever has reached him was not going to miss them. And whatever missed him was not going to occur to him.
The last thing I want to talk about going back to this style, we have two concepts in this event. And so
when we think about the worship of Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And seeking help, and
in general, as we said, Actually, the scan is seeking help and listen, I know it's our This
is a kind of worship.
This is part of our worship of wholeness.
But for worship to be proper doors has to be sincere and has to be solely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. So even our is God our seeking of help from Alyssa handler data has to be sincere. So Alison with that. So when we think about the relationship between our brother and sister Hannah, we can divide people into four categories.
And every time when I read this, this is mostly based on the passage from time, but every time I read this passage, you'll think
About this message, I think of a story that Stephen Avery seems to tell
a fellow Sudanese man who came together. And he was confused about what to do. So he wanted to know how can you get guidance from a listener who had like a choice of jobs or something I don't remember the exact story. So chef Java sat down and taught him shut up and Mr. hodda godless took the job that you make for guidance from a lesson hunter without him. So when he came to the portion in garlic,
and it came to the portion where he we shall not include the column on the
page only Genie from it because it stops me from I don't need the genie for
the portion of the God or your love, you know that this is just for my gene. To produce in that I'm looking to see what is best for my gene.
Concerned about I'm trying to do something what is destiny is doing, I don't care about what is best done with this technology. So when we think about the relation between the levada and Steiner, actually, that story kind of within the jumper of one of the different categories, the first category,
I'm gonna put them in order here is the best, the most virtuous.
And we can call these the people out there.
And what we mean by that is that their goal is the worship of emotion handler.
Their goal is the worship of God. And so therefore, when they seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala, they are seeking help from Alicia Garner, and fulfilling this worship of homeless and ricotta and to do the things that are most pleasing to Allah.
So these are the people that we can call the people of Alberta, and Mr. Harmon.
And these are what we've been describing so far. And on that point, even taymiyah.
After also mentioning that point, this is like the goal, the purpose, he said this, I have thought about this issue. And I found that the most beneficial jobs were mentioned this guy, it is the asking for help,
to do what is pleasing to others.
So they sent me a saying when I thought about what could be the most beneficial job, he said, I've thought about it, I found his passion, all this data to help you to do what is pleasing to Him to moderate
the economic constraints. So after he thought about that, he said, I saw it and in fact he had his economic constraints. So those are the people we've been describing. So far the people who died and
there are people who are not interested in this data or whatever, they are not interested in worshipping Allah subhanaw taala nor are they truly interested in seeking help from a listener with data.
However, even these people as we can see them offline, even these people may turn to ask from Allah sandwich because
he is the true the true love. And when it comes to this point, everyone whether Catholic or not, sometimes may turn to Allah subhana wa tada and after the list,
but when they asked me to listen, I know what data obviously they are not asking from Allah subhanaw taala in order to get closer to Allah subhana wa tada or to increase the wishbone listener Kira for TO DO what is pleasing to Allah.
For Allah subhanho wa Taala does that
mean is the really left, and people know that in their notes, and everyone may turn us sometime So listen, I don't want tada and ask, what it is is devoted service or people who are his enemies.
And not only that are listening to what data may answer their job.
So they're not people or they're bad, but they may sometimes you're not interested in. They're not even interested in this guy in general, but sometimes, when they really need they may turn to all the satellite data to meet their desires to meet their goal. And all this data may even give them may respond to that. In fact, one of the classic examples of that is son in the verse in the Quran, which Allah subhanaw taala says quoting of is the color of the fan journey Eli O'Meara phone call of a nickel minimum Lauryn Hill, madam
chef on a please ask Allah subhana wa tada to give me a spice until the day that they are resurrected. And I'll listen to what God has said to you often lose people who are even mistake. However, as we said they are not making I mean they are not asking for Allah subhanaw taala to do something that is
So therefore when Allah subhanaw taala gives them actually just increases the distance from Allah subhana wa Tada. It just increases actually their failings and so forth. Because they are now going to use that thing in a way that is not pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala so Allah subhana wa tada answered their God, and actually his answer for them was something was for them. Because now they're going to use what Allah Allah answered their God, instead of being grateful to Allah subhana wa tada they are now going to use that to increase their disobedience to listen without forgiveness to the school is madrugada and this is a sign by the way that's responding to specific drower specific
requests from Allah subhana wa Tada This is not a sign necessarily, of the fact that I listen I know time is pleasing to someone or that someone is on the street that someone could ask Allah subhana wa tada could respond. And when aligned with Allah responds, it just increases their their own deals and the distance from Allah subhana wa Tada. And as we said, on the other hand, someone may ask, and Alison I know without I may not give them what they asked for out of protection for them, out of love for them and so forth.
So they are person may think that if he asked Alyssa without and he doesn't get what he asked for, that just means that
he's not loving him or was not gracious, generous offer but that is not necessarily the case. That one who's aware of these facts and Salah he will know the reality of what data does. And does in fact, and then even goes on and says that this is an expression in English you should be careful about what you ask for what you wish for. So even appliances, everyone should be careful what they asked for. Even if they see it as something good for them. And in fact he says you should never ask for something from almost nanopowder except on the condition that it will be good for you. And that is why you make for example the staccato is too hot to you explicitly so this is this is good for me
if you follow that and know that this is good for me then give it to me if you know that it is not good for me, then keep it away from me. So even when asking for my lesson without associate do not know what isn't really our benefits and just jr he won't ask me to listen I know what data we should always try to condition it by asking lets her know tada to give it to us if it is beneficial for us and to keep it away from us if it is not beneficial for us. And then if we are given something by Allah subhana wa tada without even asking for it, then we have to make sure that we make this something that helps us in our Tibet of Allah subhana wa tada
and this is a mistake me to think that someone asked him he's given somebody else to ask and he's not given exactly what is asked that this means a lot please with this person, and not with that person that is not necessarily the case. And it is important that we realize that fact. And in fact, this world as we know this world's elite fan workout it gives even to
his to the believers. The important thing about this world with respect to the worldly things about this world and is not how much you're given but what you do with what you're given.
And you can mark look at goes up love Allah gives you that this means if Allah, Allah doesn't give you this means that Allah is trying to dismiss you. And in fact let's run without it does this
mean Can we give them a pillow or a bow karamo when they are cooler A B
from a them a pillow.
there be a hand color. Alicia Machado this has remained when his Lord Tried him and listen without using the same word. It's the same and he giving he's going to try you by giving you honor gifts. Then the man says in arrogance My Lord has Arden. But when he tries him restricting exceptions for him, then he says that my lord has humiliated me. Then all the calluses can let me know me this is not the reality of what is going on. And if Allah subhanaw taala gives someone it does not mean that this means that he is beloved to Allah subhana wa Tada. And it doesn't mean that it does not give to somebody that he is not beloved to Allah subhanaw taala because these things, as we said, is given
to a catheter given to a Muslim anyone. But what is the case is that if someone knows almost nothing with God and is being guided to please, men workout is being guided for Bayless men with dark and avoid those things that God has forbidden
And increases in as the man and gets closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala regardless of his worldly state, if Allah subhana wa tada has put a man in his hearts and given him this blessing, which is the greatest blessing. This is a sign that he's beloved to Allah.
And Allah subhanaw taala decent to straight and covert and not seeing the light of Islam, then this is a sign that is not pleasing to Allah.
These are the two signs is not what Allah gives, because this dunya is not for that purpose.
Okay, this is your gender, it means Allah, a lot of means to displeased.
So that's the second category, they're not interested in this down or better. Now, the third category
is very important.
Recently, they had a program where they're talking to different people from different religious faiths, and discussing this tsunami that just took place. And the answers from most of the Christians that they spoke to, and the answers of even the Muslims that he spoke to, they spoke to one Muslim enamels a place in the United States.
They actually even as a Muslim that is supposed to post them and this actually third category,
from what you said, I mean, I'm not judging the person or anything but what he said his understanding would put him in this third category. And this third category are the people that are better, the people are better for to do not have
to don't realize what the standard is the people that are better, but the people who are lacking when it comes to a standard. And basically these are the people who when they act, and when they do things.
They think that they are doing it all by their own accord.
And they don't recognize Allah subhana wa Tada. acting in every moment of their life. So they have divorced Allah subhana wa tada from what is going on.
We spoke about personal finance in the Yeoman Hall. And every moment, our lesson how to Darla is raising some lowering others, giving others preventing others as explained in the Hadith. every moment, every action that takes place our listener with God is involved, just by his will, that everything takes place.
But unfortunately, some people get to the point where they think that all this man what God has created us, has given us a mind has given us for example, guidance in the Quran. And Sunnah has given us the
physical means in this world and has left everything to us.
So for example, this one of the Christian guys when he was talking about the tsunami, he said this tsunami was a geological statement, not a theological statement.
It has nothing to do with these people. All right, I've never been to a good, what does God have to deal with this
is what they say. And as I said, even the Muslim when he replied, he does something very similar to them.
And they'll fire him talks about two groups for them
to discuss, but one of them is a group that are known as a puppeteer,
which are basically those people who I just described, and they don't necessarily believe in furthering the fact that all of a sudden our data has effects on every action. So for these people, for example, there's no difference between or less than without is is not distinguished between someone who is turning to him, and worship. And someone who feels helpless turning away from him. It's all just a matter of the physical worlds of physical things that they do not believe in the concept of a lot coming and giving special help to Muslim
And because these are, as I said, they are not people there are people who believe in
God, but they don't realize that you have to turn to Allah subhanaw taala for all their needs, and nothing happens unless Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Now, it's easy, especially in this materialistic and secular kind of world, it's easy to slip into this category.
It's easy to slip into this category, especially with science nowadays, you think everything is just by the laws of science and so forth. Can you forget that without all the federal data, nothing can occur.
This is a very dangerous category for all of us, and we should be conscious of.
And if we go through life thinking that these things are occurring, we have the ability we do this, we do that other people do this, there's a natural reaction to this and that if we do this, this will happen. But we always have to remember that our lesson how to work on it.
is always invoked.
And even if things happen, for example, according to the laws that are listening to what God has made for the environment from nature, even when these things happened, they only happen because I listened to what God has made them happen. There's nothing that is just automatic just wind up religious mounded up. In other words,
they happen when Alyssa with our decrees, and how our listener
decrees them to happen. And this is one of the problems or one of the dangers of this way of thinking is that as in the case of the President, it can lead someone to deny or downplay the role of purpose. And he did all this
is his word association and so forth. Because once you downplay that venue, forget about all the satellite data and he did not turn Golisano data, he began relying on yourself, he began relying on others other than others.
And so therefore, there is a deficiency in your
once you forget that, especially with data, and without filipendula Tada, if he doesn't wish something to occur cannot occur, you begin to rely on yourself to begin relying on others.
Society even as a nation may rely on this armor that army and think this is what's going to protect them. So they make treaties with this, or alliances with that, forgetting about
that, so listener with that, okay.
So this word may look like a minor point. Even though we come back every day, as we said 17 times a day, and we remind ourselves to distract the Yak and now boudoir can stay. When we say you're gonna stain we're saying we're not even relying on ourselves.
To remember, this is for exclusiveness.
to see killer. We are admitting the fact that we ourselves don't even have the movie.
So how can we think we're doing all these things and this is just our own own accord. And so I think these are the kind of
stuff there's two other categories that airplane has. There's another sub category there and then the fourth category, but they are not as relevant to the whole discussion is, so we'll have to skip over them in order to move on
and other forms.
