Bismillah R Rahman Rahim hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah salat wa salam ala nabina Muhammad,
sherwani, Mohammed Abu
Am I back?
Today inshallah we'll finish up one way or another, we'll finish up our discussion of
Toka lalala. And also the concepts of ear canal Buddha II aka. Mr. hain.
Last time we spoke in some detail about a token, and among the things that we the stresses, it is a concept that's although essential to Islam many times we don't take the time to learn exactly what it means.
But it is a state of the heart,
as we said, in which a real bond is created between the servant and Allah subhana wa Tada.
And that barn is derived from the fact
or is based on the knowledge of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That is robola Allah mean that he is the one who manages and creates and benefits nourishes all of the creation.
And whatever he wills takes place, and he's also a Hakeem is not only the one with the ability, but he's also the one with the knowledge and the wisdom. And he's also Rahim as those verses pointed out, he's also the Merciful One. So the person enters into a state where he interests like this might be one of the better words maybe to use in English, he trusts his affairs to align with that.
And once he trusts his affairs to Allah subhanho wa Taala, since he knows who Allah subhanaw taala is, then there's no room for any kind of fear on his part, any kind of lack of tranquility, any kind of argument with respect to what Allah subhana wa, has decreed for him, like the infant in the arms of the parent, who has full trust that what the parent is going to do for them is best for them. Even if something may not look like it is best for them, they still realize that inshallah It is best for them and the bond between them is not book
there is an aspect of the son of the process.
And this is what is known as slotless taharah, wireless taharah
in which the person turns to Allah subhanho wa Taala and asks for guidance. And when you understand this drop, you'll see how it is related to the concepts of torkel that we have been discussing.
Now this job, the Companion of the process, Adam,
he said can and to be a solo citizen, you are looking at a list harder, or more equally casati mineral Quran
jabber said that the policies seldom used to teach us or taught us the list harder making it harder for all matters. Like he taught us sort of the Quran.
And it was that much emphasis
without much understanding of how it is important to turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala and to seek Allah subhanaw taala as help and to seek Allah subhanaw taala is guidance. And then jabber describes it if you're considering a matter then you pray to recognize. And this is by the way, this is set out to list hotter and drier lists to her. And this is the only slotless hora. I know people, some people in different cultures and different places they have some other things that they do and they call it or they think it's a staccato, but this is the only thing from the sooner the promises and that is the harder you pray to rockets of salaat outside of the obligatory follow up. And then
you make this job.
And when you contemplate the words of this job, they are basically summarizing some of the points that we made yesterday when we spoke about the whole concept of what a token Allah is. So the person turns to Allah subhana wa tada
and says Allah Houma, India's the hero to be and so I'm seeking your guidance by your knowledge was stuck at zero can be quadratic, and I am seeking to have the ability to do it by your ability was so common for the local law team. And I am asking of your great bounty in Greece. So here, as we spoke about, you're acknowledging the fact that Allah subhanaw taala has the knowledge.
So we can convey a part to the guidance of what is best he has the power, he can give you the ability to do what is best. So this is a couple of aspects that we mentioned yesterday and you are asking Him for His grace because he
So when he's responding to you actually, you're not just asking for, just to be shown to the best thing, but also with any covered with the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala. And then you continue to affirm this by saying train nikka taketsuru Allah aku that you have the power and I do not have power what Allah, Allah Allah and you know and I do not know
what Allah will and you are the Knower of the unseen.
So, all these things are directly related to the aspects that we were speaking about yesterday. And again, we should not overlook the fact that as Java said the promises system used to teach this to his Sahaba like he taught them a surah of the Quran.
And then you ask about the matter that you are concerned with, and again, as we spoke about yesterday, once you put the affairs, the issue and entrusted to Allah subhanho wa Taala you're saying that you know that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows best what should be done. And so therefore, you are ready to accept whatever Allah subhana wa tada decrees for you.
And if you complain, or you say, this is not what I was, put my trust in you for this means that you did not really put your trust in all this man with that
you already had in your mind what the conclusion is, and you just want to look to give it to you. But that's not what it means to put your trust and interest the matter to Allah subhanaw taala so you asked Allah subhanaw taala Aloma in contact Alamo and has ombre hair only if it didn't work at all. If you know that this matter is best for me, in my religion and in my living and the end of my affairs,
then decreed for me then make it for me. If you know that is best for me, then make it and then you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that if you know that it is worse for me, then turn it away from me and turn me away from it and decreed for me what is best for me and then make me pleased with it. And we said the one who has talked to the one who has real trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala the result of that will be a result or he will be pleased with what Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed for him.
So all of those aspects when you think about them, which are part of this year can stain What do we mean when we say yeah, can the stain is captured in this sort out the list harder that the policy system and wireless policy system has brought us.
So these components that we're describing here and the components that we described yesterday, all of them put together they make up what is known as a token Allah
and they make up what we are trying to say here when we say yakka and this time
and the more that we understand this concept of the total, the more we'll understand a trade
and the more we apply it that means more will be realizing or implementing our to him.
Now some of the lemma said
that this one aspect of the deen which is although so essential to the deen as we spoke about yesterday, this one aspect of the deen is sometimes very difficult for what they call the commoners any LaWanda layman, sometimes very difficult for the common people to understand, because they cannot get beyond the cause and the effect that they see in the world around them. And they will immediately attribute everything directly to the cause and the effects that they serum. And it's such and such happen and because that thing happened, then I ended up with this result or that result and so forth. And they cannot see beyond that the working of Allah subhanho wa Taala that
this happened, because Allah made it happen. And this result occurred because Allah subhanho wa Taala will then decrease it.
And the following result also is because of what Allah subhanaw taala will, so they cannot get beyond what they're seeing around them to realize, and to have that kind of connection with Allah subhanho wa Taala realizing that all of these affairs all these matters are actually by the decree of Allah subhanaw taala.
Now someone may, for example,
think to himself that No, I understand hamdulillah I'm not from those people that cannot see beyond the direct cause and effect, but I know that Allah subhanaw taala behind all of these things.
But one of the ways of looking at yourself and seeing whether or not you really have this concept within you
is that support
Something does not turn out the way you wanted it to turn out the way you were hoping I should say the way you were expecting the way that you were hoping that would turn out.
When you tried to analyze the issue, what was the cause of the problem?
How many of us when we try to analyze the issue?
Do we say that one of the causes or perhaps the main cause? Is my relationship with Allah Subhana Allah?
Or do we just look at the worldly things? And whether it's our work or study or whatever the case might be something we were not successful in?
Do we think about the fact that I really make did a really seekest Anna from Allah subhanho wa Taala? Did I really make torkel and Allah subhanho wa Taala put my trust in reliance and Allah subhanaw taala? Or was I relying thinking that myself or those people with me or those things that I did, will bring about the result?
Unfortunately, many people slip into that when they, when they speak about themselves, they might think about themselves that no I see beyond these factors, but with them, when they analyze when they themselves fail, or when something goes wrong.
They forget to ask the question, what is my relationship to Allah subhanho wa Taala possibly have to do with the result
was that putting my trust in Allah subhanaw taala was a seeking help from Alyssa no data, if you're putting your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. And you're seeking help and Allah subhanho wa Taala, then if that thing that you were desiring or the goal that you're trying to achieve is good for you, then inshallah Allah will help you achieve.
So if you really did that, and you didn't get what you had planned, or what you thought you're going to get,
and you really fulfill those conditions, then you know, that Allah has decreed this for a reason.
And inshallah, that thing that Allah has decreed for you is better for you.
But if you didn't put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala, and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala, for help. And you just look at all the worldly factors, oh, I could have put more hours into this. I could have studied harder, I could have trained harder, I could have done this and this. And that's all you see. And that's all you're blamed for your failure. That means you don't know what Tokelau means. That means you did not make to UCLA law in the first place.
If that's all that you see, that's all that you think about it. That's all the factors. And you do not think about your relationship to Allah subhanho wa Taala?
Why didn't Allah subhana wa Taala give you the help to achieve what you think was best.
Or, in fact, maybe he did, what he kept you away from something harmful. And either way you analyze the results of something, this will be a good sign for you to understand whether or not you really have to work the law of law and the proper weight, or whether or not you do not have it.
Now, of course, there's an important aspect of putting once complete trust and reliance on Allah subhanaw taala that,
and it for some people, and historically, as we alluded to yesterday, has caused some confusion. And that is the relationship between a talk a lot a lot and putting one's trust and reliance and Allah subhanaw taala. And as Barber, the cause what we can call the worldly or materially cause and effects.
What's the relationship between putting one's trust and reliance in Allah subhana wa Taala. And these worldly causes.
When we look at the worldly causes, we know, for example, that in general,
for example, if you're studying physics, maybe I can ask you Well, for example, if you do X, Y, and Z, the results in a vacuum perfect condition should be a BNC. For example, if you want to become an alum, you should realize that there's studying that you have to do. If you want to have children, then there's a process to marriage and so forth, that you should go through, if you want your children to be pious. Also, there's processes you should go through to set an example for them, which is, by the way, one of the most important aspects in example for them, and teach them of course, you can teach them unless you have the knowledge from the first place, right? So there's all
of these things we realized that there are above there are causes that can lead to the desired result.
And what's the relationship then between these causes, following these causes, and seeking these causes and applying them, and a total Allah
By the way, one contemporary author,
he brought up an interesting point I haven't seen anyone else quite discuss it in the same way that he discussed
is that with respect to our deeds, as a Muslim, we realize that there are two conditions that should be met for our deeds to be proper.
The condition of claws, and doing the act sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And the condition of the Act has to be correct.
Now, usually when we think of the Act being correct, because again most of the time, or a lot of the time when people think of that better they think of it as those ritual acts of worship, very kind of restricted concept, not like what we spoke about. So when we talk about it being swab, that being correct, we mean that it is in conformity with the Sunnah of the policies of the
But as you spoke about
the Sharia, and Ubud encompasses all aspects of life, not just the ritual acts.
And so this author was making the point that when Muslims fail at something, there's two possibilities why they might have failed.
One possibility is that they did not have a clause.
And because they did not have a clause, Allah subhanaw taala did not bless them.
Or another possibility is that they did not do what was correct, what was proper, what was a sua.
But he expands that to all of the aspects of the Sharia.
And when you say what is correct, it means to follow the best strategy to bring about the goal
to bring about whatever goal you might have.
And of course, part of that strategy, part of the means is to have the proper token Allah and seeking help and Allah subhanaw taala. But Muslims may fail because they did not follow the best path to lead them to their conclusion.
For example, during the time of the prophet SAW Selim, we see examples from the promises that and where he followed the most strategic action. So they had the philosophy of no doubt that the promise of cinnamon is lava had the flaws, but at the same time, they're also seeking the best action to correct the most appropriate action to bring about their goal.
So for example, in the Battle of
this idea of building the trench around Medina, to protect Medina, and so the enemy armies, which were large number could not just come straight into Medina.
This would be a kind of example you have the flaws, but you also look for what is the best way to meet your goal.
So sometimes, he argues that we as Muslims, we rely just on the class, but we are failing and thinking about what is the best way that we have to what we need to achieve the goal that we have set for ourselves.
And this is directly related to obviously the question that I was bringing up. What is the relationship of following this Bub
and talk Lala
and as I said, this is an area where many of the groups in Islam previously are one group in particular straight quite a bit in fact for many of the Sophie's you can find in their books, that acting according to the causes and acting according to this Bub demonstrates a lack of trust in Allah subhanaw taala.
But there are some clear signs from the promises
of what should be the approach of a believer.
And what is the sooner well listen Hello data with respect to this worldly existence.
And Hadith recorded by tirmidhi someone came through the process of him and asked him about his camel, should he tie his Camel Up and make talked a lot a lot and put his trust in Allah subhanaw taala? Or should he allows camel to be free and puts his trust in all this metadata? So in other words, obviously he doesn't want to lose his camel
and is asking the province assylum as a believer, in other words, as a believer, what should I do I believe in Allah, obviously he does. So he's asking the provinces and what should I do as a believer? Should I just let my camel roam free? And see I put my trust and I love that it will be there when I come back. Or should I tie it up? restrain it so that it can get away I do my best in other words to keep it from getting away. And then I put my trust also in Alaska with that. So the province I said him told him to tie it, tie the camel down and also put your trust in talisman with that. So the meaning of that is that you that you follow the ASVAB you follow the worldly causes
that are apparent to you.
So in other words, if you have some kind of goal,
you don't just sit at your home and do nothing.
and expect that goal to come to you and say that I'm putting my trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. This goes against the sooner the promises
son of Allah subhanho wa Taala with respect to this world.
Instead what you have to do is do what you can
do what is within your building. And we can even add to that do it in the best way.
And then inshallah Allah subhanho wa Taala will help.
Another Hadith the prophet SAW Selim has told us and what we know and we you hiren will have a light minute meaning
of equal in higher
promises Salaam said the strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah than the weak believer. And in both of them there is goodness.
Most of the commentators on this hadith say the strong means strong with respect to a man
but some have also said strong and other sense too. But then the power system also said after that, Horus Allah million Pharaoh was dying below wallet charges,
try to seek try to seek those things which will benefit you
and seek help and Allah subhanho wa Taala and do not make yourself Do not make yourself like incapable or weak to do something.
In other words, the promises enemas telling us try to find what can benefit us what we can use for our goal.
So we find that we seek Allah's help and we do not make ourselves as if we are incapable, what we try to achieve what we can and we put our trust in Allah subhanaw taala.
So the concept of a Tokelau Allah,
and he does not mean that we ignore the spell. Instead, it means that we try to find what would be the best suburb to follow. And then we implement those causes. And while we're implementing those causes, fact even while we're seeking those causes, to see what is best we are always seeking our lesson how North Dallas help
because anything we do five times a day, we're going to go back to Allah subhana wa tada and recite these words. And each Raka he can Abdullah he can stay.
Actually one of the most dangerous aspects of those people who think of putting one's trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. One of the problems behind that, where you kind of ignore this bulb
and you say I put my trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala whatever happens happens, I get wealth whatever without following this, but this is one of the things that is a result from not distinguishing between two kinds of what are known as the will of Allah subhana wa tada
there is what is known as irrelative konia.
The will of Allah subhanho wa Taala dealing with the order of creation
and Eros, the Sheree or the will of Allah subhana wa tada dealing with what He commands or prohibits the slaves.
And without going into too much detail about these, what that means. And what it's referring to is with respect to this world.
Allah subhanho wa Taala has laid down some general laws for this world, he created these laws, and in general, he makes this creation adhere to those laws.
So he allows in this creation, things to abide by those laws.
So for example, someone might want to commit a sin alum may have given him the ability to do it.
Whatever he needs to do it and he has been tensioned to do it. Allah subhanho wa Taala may allow him to do it.
Because he is going by the laws of the order of this creation is following the order of this creation. So Allah subhanho wa Taala allows him based on the laws that Allah subhanaw taala has set for this creation to do it. But this does not mean that Allah subhana wa tada is pleased with what he did.
What Allah subhana wa tada wants from us, and what Allah subhanho wa Taala likes and dislikes, this is related to his other will rot at the Sharia, what is known as the world with respect to what He commands or what he prohibits. So, the things that you see in this world, for example, as we spoke about, I think yesterday also. And when you see, for example, people having wealth, and being rich and being on top of the world, this is not necessarily a sign that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with them at all.
But they are following some causes.
And I'll listen to what God has decreed that they will get the result of the cause of the vote.
And in fact, this way of thinking that we're basically just in
Will everything is the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala and therefore everything that must occur must be pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala.
Allah subhanaw taala refers to this as an excuse that the mushrikeen gave for their shift.
Allah subhana wa tada says, say Abou levina isoroku? No show lahoma shidduch. Now, what about una Bala haram? She
had the Villa veniamin, probably him and Alison Hannah with dialysis those people associate partner to the law.
They will say had Allah willed we would not have ascribed partners to him, neither would our fathers,
nor would we have forbidden anything.
And Allah subhanaw taala says, Does the belie in the same way that those people before them did.
So we have the fact that in this creation, there are such thing as as Bob, we have to recognize these kinds of material, sometimes maybe non material causes and effects in this world. So we don't deny those effects.
We realize them, we try to use them as the promises that have told us us what benefits us we tried to use them but always in the process. We put our reliance in Allah subhanaw taala
between those people basically what you go the extreme Sophie's who deny, following the causes and say that this is a lack of trust in Allah subhanaw taala. You have the other extreme
of people who put their complete trust in this Bub.
They put the complete trust in this verb only and don't see the working of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the Christian
because when we say that the lesson hanworth Allah made laws through this cosmos, and things go according to those laws. Still Allah subhanho wa Taala is invoked.
So we have the things going according to those laws, but even within those laws, what finally occurs what doesn't occur, it is still Allah subhana wa tada who has to bring about those final effects and so forth.
So there are some people who only look at this Bub.
And they put complete reliance on the ASVAB. And this is also a kind of shift.
This is a kind of shift, because you are attributing all the effect and all the power to this but not to others.
And this is, as I said, this is a kind of shift. And that bizarrely is one example of the type in a verse in the Quran. Allah subhanho wa Taala says pay the people for key Darrell la meclizine ella Jean Villa manager homie like Barry, either whom you should recruit. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that when they are out in the boat, they made sincere, please do listen, Hannah Tada. And we talked about even disbeliever sometimes will make please tell us about that. And then when we rescue them, and then when we rescue them and put them on the land, either who usually come, then they associate partners with them. And with that they commit shift. And elegance, Allah says one of the ways that
they can mature is that then as soon as they rescue, they say for example, have the wisdom come down, we would not have been rescued. And in other words, it's the winds that died down wasn't Allah subhanho wa Taala it was the winds that died down. And because the winds died down, they were saved. And because Allah said this is how they committed. This is how when they get to land, either whom you should call, and they put everything on the physical causes, not knowing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who calm down the words
of Allah subhanho wa Taala willed for the winds to keep being stronger, then of course, they would not have been saved. So this is a very dangerous extreme, obviously. And this is the extreme that we see of course in materialism, and Darwinism. In the kind of world that exists today the leading ideologies of this nature.
People are always talking about conquering the forces of nature.
They see nature as having the forces and they don't think that Allah subhana wa tada has anything to do with those forces. And this is around us everywhere we look in the media, when you go to school, what they're going to be teaching you in school, right? If you take any science class, I don't care what field all of those things that happen.
They happen on their own power on their own force, right? There's nothing about oh, God sets these things in motion and sometimes the wind dies down. Sometimes it doesn't die down everything, supposedly, as explained. Right. Every action has some kind of reaction to it.
And they take God completely out of everything.
And this is, as we said, this is a dangerous, it's dangerous because it's a shark, when you start to think, in this way, that all of these things are acting by themselves and Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't have anything to do with them. And it's very dangerous because we are in an environment where this is the way people think. And it's easy for us to get swept into this kind of thing. And I think I already mentioned to yesterday or the day before some of the comments of the religious leaders on the tsunami, same kind of thing. These are people who believe in God, even those people believe in God do not realize that God is active and that these things happen by the will of Allah
there's a hadith recorded by Muslim advocates.
That I think if someone keeps this Hadith, in his mind, inshallah he will never fall into even thinking in any moment about this kind of things.
We're thinking this kind of way. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us this hadith Yeah, a birdie
could look on ball on 11 headed
Yeah, buddy could look him john 11 um, to
foster a Mooney Oh
yeah, buddy kulu Kumar in 11 kasota, who pustak Sunni.
Allah subhana wa tada sing all my servants.
All of you are straight except for those who might guide it. So therefore seek guidance from me and I will guide you.
All my servants, all of you are hungry, except for the ones who I feel. So seek food for me and I will give you food
or my service all of you are naked except for those who might have grown. So see clothing for me and I sell clothing.
All of these things actually that we think they were getting, we're following this Bob here. And we think they were getting actually Allah subhanaw taala is given to us.
And it's only a list of 100 that is given to us. So go to the source.
Don't worry about the middleman go directly to the source and seek help from Allah subhanho wa Taala and seek what you need from Allah subhana wa Tada. So, the real approach with respect to the dub, the real approach is to have that kind of balance.
And we do not neglect this Bob. Because to neglect this verb as I said, it goes against the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala and his creation, it goes against the sooner the promises.
But at the same time, we do not put our reliance. We do not put our reliance on those physical means, or those,
as evidenced by him said,
This Bob are related to our hands or what we do our body, while our hearts are attached to a listener, that
we're putting out hope and trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala that we are doing the things that need to be done with our physical body. So we don't have in our hearts we don't have the attachment to this. But we know that these are just means that Allah subhanho wa Taala may make successful for us, or Allah subhanho wa Taala may not make successful for us, but in themselves, they have no power, they have no ability to bring us good or to bring us harm. All of that is only in the hands of God. So we follow this Bab the promises and folders above and all of his examples. Whether it's making Dawa, whether it's making Jihad and all aspects of his life he followed this verb. In fact, one
score, he gave the example of Miriam and he said the mother of aisyah Elisa.
If you look at one example from the Quran, and he stressed this out this shows that this is part of the sunova less manual data to follow this Bub and following this Bob is part of the total Allah for a Muslim.
And the verse that he cites is from Miriam, Allah subhanho wa Taala talking to Miriam says, Well Jose de la kbj inequality to surface Aliki, Ruben geneia.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells Miriam
and shake the trunk of the palm tree towards you.
It will lead for fresh ripe gates upon him.
What's the point that he's making here?
This is Miriam. beloved to Allah subhana wa Tada.
She's just given birth.
She's in a weak state. And what does Allah subhana wa tada tell it to do?
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us to shake
the tree and the date
was 100 Allah didn't just throw
The dates to her
but told her you do this and this will be the result for you. Now she could have taken the tree and nothing happened but let's find out that I made sure she saved the tree and she gets the result. But the point that he's making is if you if you think about this example that Allah subhanho wa Taala is giving us in the Quran, it shows us out and you following this Bob is part following the causes the outward causes and means this is part of our total Allah and it's part of the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this creation.
So we can see from
the meaning of torkel Allah, the meaning of liscannor, saying iaca Naboo ye I can Stein
we can see from this that
it means for us that we realize that Allah subhanho wa Taala is part of everything. And there is no moment when we are free of Allah subhanho wa Taala when we are outside of his realm, and there's no moment in which we can do something other than what Allah subhana wa Taala has decreed for us.
So since we know Allah subhana wa Tada.
Like just what as I said before, it's just what we know about the lowest dollar in this surah from what we know about Allah subhanho wa Taala means that we should turn towards Allah subhanho wa Taala in all matters in all affairs
and put their trust and in reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala and whatever comes from Allah subhana wa tada we will know that it is what Allah subhanho wa Taala has decreed and inshallah to be the best for us.
So when Burson has the proper talk a lot, a lot of the proper trust and reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala, basically, his way of looking at the world, his vision is different from those people who don't have this Tokelau
because he is realizing everything that Allah subhana wa tada is doing. And he knows that all of these things are by the work of Allah subhanaw taala, and the will of Allah subhanaw taala.
So he is kind of looking at it through a different vision. And a very important part of that vision is that he his heart, as I said, is attached to a list of 100. With that, and his goal as we say you can Abu, his goal actually is almost ran with that. And he's using the means of less data and talked a lot a lot to achieve that goal.
Now we've kind of spoken about the concepts of data, and the concepts of talk.
And as I have alluded to more than once, because it's very important, that we have to understand these concepts, not the way people might understand them today, whether it's non Muslims or even Muslims, we have to understand them and the way that the Sharia defines them.
And when we understand them, and the way that the *tier defines them, we'll see that they have certain ramifications to them.
And the better that we understand them, the better we'll understand those ramifications. Like any theory that you might have, sometimes a theory usually will have some corollaries that are directly read basically grow out of that theory.
So these concepts, if these concepts are understood properly, they have many related aspects to them.
And a lot of these aspects related to them are kind of we could call them the practical applications of these beliefs of these concepts.
And when we turn to Allah subhanho, wa Taala, and we say, Yeah, can Abdullah Yeah, can we make this pact to the last man with Allah, and these 17 times a day, we should look to ourselves and think about ourselves and question ourselves whether or not we are fulfilling this pact? And what are some of the signs that we are fulfilling this pact with a listener.
So for example, if someone has proper embeddable this man without a proper worship of Allah subhanaw taala is seeking help and all this man with Alan O'Neal has been without a properly proper torkel there should be some ramifications in his behavior.
Some outward manifestations.
Of course, the real belief the real concept is something in the heart, but when it's in the heart, it should have practical effects. Right? Nothing is going to be truly in the heart. And you don't see its manifestation in the actions of the person.
If we have these concepts properly, we should be able to see some kind of signs in ourselves.
And I will discuss some of them shall
I'll discuss maybe mostly the ones related to a torque willingness to add
One of the most obvious things if someone is really seeking help, and Alyssa Hannah with Darla, and Ollie and all this bandwidth, and he has the proper trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala
then there would be no reason for this person and this is a sign again, looking at yourself. This is saying that you can think about yourself whether or not you are really having this characteristic.
There would be no reason for this person to follow any haraam or forbidden means to achieve a goal.
Because think about what is going on, you're turning to Allah subhana wa tada and only Allah for help, right?
So how can you turn into Allah subhana wa tada and claiming that you're turning to Allah subhanaw taala for help, you're hoping that Allah will help you. Right?
And you are putting your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. That means
that you want Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring about the best result for you, regardless of whether you realize that was the best result or you had something else in mind.
So you have that goal. And you think that that's the goal that you want to achieve, whatever, whether it's a promotion at work, passing an exam, getting a degree, whatever the goal might be, you think that's the goal that you want.
And you claim that you're living up to this you can sustain and you're putting your trust in Allah.
But if you want all this help, and you want Allah to guide you to what is best for you,
then how is it you're going to do something haram to achieve that goal?
If you're doing something Haram, aren't you violating? eken Abu
when you do something haram Are you really worshiping Allah subhanaw taala and fulfilling
your promise here to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
So if you're breaking that promise to elicit man with data, why do you expect a list of Allah tala to fulfill his promise of helping you?
Does that make any sense?
So if you really have a lot of law, you will realize that it does not make any sense whatsoever to do something haram that you know, is haram, to achieve your goal
because you're destroying all of the factors by which this will work for you.
So one of the signs that we can think about ourselves, is that when we have a goal, and as I said, doesn't matter what it might be, whether it's a financial goal or political goal, or educational goal or social goal, whatever the goal might be.
If we try to achieve that goal by doing something haram then we know that we have failed and really seeking only a less help.
Back when we do something haram whose help Are we really getting
is it allowed or is it some kind of help that Allah allows Shere Khan to give us in that goes back to radical konia once you start doing something haraam shadow will come and help you achieve your goal.
You stick to what is Hello then Allah subhanho wa Taala the resource will inshallah help.
And if you achieve your goal then by doing something Haram, then you really have to be if you ask me, then you really have to be afraid
because now Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you something which you consider good. Allah subhanho wa Taala has given you something and you have achieved it through wrong ways.
We spoke about that before Allah gives to the covad right. And all it does is increases their sins and increases their distance from Allah subhanho wa Taala it is an IP filler. It is a trial from Allah subhanho wa Taala
and allows them to distance themselves further from Allah subhana wa Tada.
And unfortunately, in this kind of society, people allow, you know, this new way of looking at things capitalism and so forth. We have so much competition keeping up with the Joneses I don't know if you're familiar with that expression or not, you know, keeping up with everybody else in your community, everybody else and, and unfortunately, this disease has spread so much to the Muslim Ummah, that if somebody else has a new car, or I have to have a new car, he has a new car. This is shameful, shameful. He has a new car, I don't have a new car, especially if he's a relative. So how are you going to get that new car? Well, I don't have the money. But this guy over here has money
to lend me some money and I can pay him back with let's not call Riba we'll call it something else.
But you know, it's Haram, you go and you do something haram because first of all you can do you forgot your goal in life. You
Forget that your goal in life is to worship Allah Spano Dada, not to keep up with the junior things that other people have. That was your first mistake right? You forgot your whole purpose here You forgot this promise that you keep making to all this man otalgia ear canal boo. You forgot
so then now you want to keep up with them you have that goal and when you turn to Allah subhana wa tada it seems Allah is not giving it to you.
So you turn to Haram is and then through the Haram means Allah gives it to
you really think this is going to be something good for you.
You really think there's going to be a lot of blessings in that thing for you. They got a new car I got a new car. So this card might be filled with blessings for you, do you think?
Or is it maybe a source of real punishment from Alison Hannah with that.
So especially when you put both the concepts together Abaddon and mistana
it is inconceivable that someone could for example, have some sights in his mind, have some goal in his mind.
And then he will use Hara means to achieve that goal.
At least not that he understands these concepts properly.
is also forgotten another important fact that will come from the proper tequila.
And that is that when we put our trust and reliance in Allah subhanaw taala. Again, we entrust our friends we turn our affairs over told us I know what Allah
and he is as easy as Al Hakim, us or Rahim. So we have we expect the best from the Bible or what is the real best is the real best in this world or the real best in the hereafter.
There's a hadith I forgot to bring it with me. There's a hadith that describes that Allah subhanho wa Taala gives the punishments to the believers in this world because all human beings, of course, are weakened commit sins. Even if they're Muslims, they may be deserving of punishment. And it's part of Allah's mercy. That he gives the punishments to the believers in general in this world, while he gives the bounty of the pleasures to the disbelievers, and in the Hereafter, he gives them the punishment and he gives the believers the reward, the pleasures.
So when you entrust your prayers to Allah subhana wa tada
as we said before yakka now Buddha can sustain the most important thing that you can seek help in Allah subhanho wa Taala for is to worship him properly.
So when you trust your first wireless man with Allah, the most important thing that you want to get back from Allah subhanho data is a teammate's you a good servant of Allah subhana wa tada
and he puts a man in your heart that will give you a tranquility in this life and gender in the hereafter.
So when you put your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada, you are not seeking the worldly goods.
If they come to you, that's one thing but that's not what you're seeking. That's not what you're all about.
So when the person puts his trust in Allah subhana wa tada properly, and especially when it combines it with this Abed, His goal is the hereafter. His goal is not the things of this world.
And he realizes that the pleasures of this world are not things worth crying over, worth despairing over and certainly are not worth displeasing Allah Subhana without over
the pleasures, the things of this world are not worth the spirit. They are not worth displeasing all this panel data for
because the person realizes that his only responsibility is trying to be a servant of Allah subhanho wa Taala and put his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. His only responsibility is whether or not to obey Allah subhanho wa Taala
the results of his actions even if you follow this Bub even if he did everything he could, even if it was the most virtuous of deeds, whether it's jihad or Tao or whatever, he knows that he is now responsible for the results
was run with Allah may bring about whatever results
as long as he was obedient to Allah subhanho wa Taala put this trust in us run with Allah and follow the right steps. He can be happy because he knows he fulfilled his abeta with respect to that deed
and whatever it comes to him of this life or whatever, it doesn't come to him of this life in both matters, it
can be a source of great good for him. Both matters. It'll be a source of great good for him, as in the Hudson sponsor system, which I think we may have read under a different occasion.
Jeff to Liam read moment in our mini cooler the Ohio laser directly I hadn't eaten in the moment. In October two Sonra Shakira, McCann, Hayden, Wayne Saba to the RA sobre, la cantera.
The prophet SAW Selim said, I am amazed about the affair of the believer,
the fair of the believer, all which is good. And that is only the case for a believer.
If something pleasing comes to him, he is thankful to Allah subhanaw taala and that is good. And if something harmful or something displeasing comes to him that he is patient, and that is good.
Because as we said, he knows what is his responsibilities,
his responsibilities, just following what Allah subhana wa tada has commanded, then results of is good, it was bad. With respect to worldly thing, this is not his responsibility. But if it's good, he knows that he should think Allah subhanaw taala in with his bad that he knows to be patient. And then again, he gets reward from all this metadata.
And another obvious aspect of when someone has the true trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala
is that one loses any fear for anyone other than that.
One loses fear for anyone other than that, which is also by the way, a component of the man.
Number we said he can sustain we're seeking help only and Allah subhanho wa Taala because we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one in charge of all affairs he is wrong balada mean.
So we're seeking help all in all this man with data because we know that in reality, only Allah subhanho wa Taala can help. Only Allah subhanho wa Taala can bring about harm.
So we are someone who truly understands the concept of a token
and that will remove our fear from anyone other than Allah subhanaw taala
Well, listen, I know what that actually in many places in the Quran reminds us of this fact. And this should give us strength
and especially with respect to those things that are pleasing to Allah subhana wa tada or obligatory from Allah subhana wa Tada.
In other words, those things that make up our worship of Allah subhanaw taala are better,
especially with respect to those things when it comes to obeying all this man with Allah and being faithful to Allah subhanaw taala especially in those things, we should fear no one other than that, we should not let our fear of human beings we should not let our fear of losing our job or our source of sustenance, because I should tell us what the hell is the real, the true source of systems?
We should not let our fear of these things or are they're trying to make us feel them deviate in our worship of Allah subhanaw taala
and in essence, there's no excuse for Muslim who really understands these concepts ever to compromise when it comes to the deen
and Muslims should know his fully conscious of these concepts. He should never compromise when it comes to the deen because you are putting your trust, you're handing all your affairs over to a list of 100 with dad and seeking help and all this matter with us. And if Allah subhanho wa Taala will something there's no one that's going to be able to prevent that good from coming to you.
The key though is to develop your relationship to others
to develop your relationship to Allah subhana wa tada and how do you do that? You do that through these steps? Yeah, can I do it I can sustain right that's the goal. And this is the means. We mentioned it many times.
Well, as I said, Allah subhanho wa Taala in many places in the Quran, highlights this fact that if all this man without is going to help you, you don't have to worry about anyone else or anyone else. I'll just give one example so that we can move on to Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us Indian Sakuma Loffler lalibela Kuhn one year from delta V and sudocrem in body while ally philea to a killer we know
Allah subhanho wa Taala says that if Allah subhana wa tada is going to help you then no one shall be able to overcome and if Allah subhanho wa Taala abandons you
Then who, after him is going to be able to come to your help?
So, let the believers put their trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala so that the believers put their trust and reliance in Allah subhanaw taala.
Again, as we spoke about many times,
when we entrust our prayers to Allah subhanho wa Taala, we are taking Allah subhanho wa Taala as our guardian zoa kill.
And at the same time, we recognize again that our goal is abettor our real goal is the hereafter does not this life, it is the worship of Allah subhanaw taala
and so therefore, when things occurred to us in this dunya
when hardships or difficulties occurred to us in this dunya
and of course these are relative hardships and difficulties. We know also that these things come from Alyssa.
We know also that these things come from Allah subhanaw taala and we also know that it is the Sunnah of Allah subhanho wa Taala to allow us to show our willingness and our drive and our desire to worship Him alone.
It is the sooner Allah subhana wa tada
in this dunya to give us chances and to give us the ability to show that we want to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala and only Allah subhanaw taala
as maybe a little bit different from the way that's usually expressed.
I said it's a suitable lesson, I know $1 to give us the ability to earn his reward to Ord his love in this world.
What do I mean by that it is the sooner we'll dismantle our data to try to make it to lab
to try the people in this world.
Well, let's man what Allah has told us this and is not a kind of punishment from Allah subhanho wa Taala but it is a way of showing and demonstrating. And if you wish, maybe even say giving yourself some kind of proof that you are wanting to worship only Allah subhanaw taala
so let's find out what Allah tells us in the Quran has given National Youth Roku and yaku Hola,
Nakata, tener La Nina mem copy him filiana mundo la La Nina sodoku.
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Does mankind think that they will be left alone simply by saying we believe and they will not be tried and tested. Rarely we tested the people before them so that the law may make manifest those who are sincere and true.
And so that Allah subhanaw taala will make manifest those who are lying those who are deceitful in their claims to fame. So Allah subhanho wa Taala
tells us that he is giving us these abilities, these chances to demonstrate our real above others.
So when things occurred to us in this dunya
instead of panicking
because look at the believers, the example of the believers in the time the Sahaba, for example, instead of panicking.
Instead of crying instead of swearing to God people, things happen and people even Muslim, sometimes they start swearing
But instead of doing any of those things, the one who is a true believer, he has a tranquility and an understanding in his heart that these things surround him.
And yet he knows this is actually what Allah subhanaw taala has given him as an opportunity to fulfill this economic destiny.
So we see for example, in the case of the Sahaba How do they react
when times of hardship look like they were coming upon them to take just a couple of examples.
Alison Hannah with dialysis and levena Kala luminous in the NASA general conflict show home closer to home in
Colorado has been alone.
Allah subhanho wa Taala here when talking about the armies, the enemy gathering against the Muslims, when the Muslims when the believers were told that the people are gathering against you, so you should fear them and have big armies gathering against you. So you should fear them.
What was the result of the believer The one who is fulfilling ear canal Buddha can sustain Allah subhanho wa Taala said is simply increased their email and they said Allah sufficient for us and He is the best
Here's the best disposer appears. This is a tequila. This isn't that this is putting all of these things together, combining all these things and realizing the reality of this world of this Junior.
This is a chance to demonstrate that you are really a slave Abdullah's.
You put your trust in Him. If all the armies gathered against you, you put your trust in Him. And you don't have to worry.
Yes, from a worldly point of view, if you're defeated, if you're killed, people will just see things on this worldly point of view. They think, Oh, it's been destroyed, it's been killed. When you think of the secular states,
those people have lost touch with the hereafter. Death is like the last thing in the world that they ever want to think of. I never want to see
if one child gets killed, for example, in the garden, and they found that he was wearing three seatbelts and if it were worn a fourth, it would have saved his life, you'll find 20 laws passed to supposedly save people's lives, because they cannot handle death. Because they don't realize that there is a hereafter.
And if they realize that they know that they are not working for it.
So any kind of catastrophe It is like the biggest shock to them.
And they start doubting god they start doubting everything.
But the approach of the believers completely, completely different. Because he understands reality. And he knows what he's doing here. And he knows what his goal here. Another example this man with data and socialism, says
all ohada marijuana Lozano sakalava sudo Mirza home Illa amen and what is NEMA.
Allah subhana wa tada says, when the believers when the believers saw the Azov the different tribes in the Confederates coming against them. This big army coming against the believers. When the believers saw them, they said, This is what a line is messenger promised us.
And we just think of the good things right that all we ever think of is genuine. life should be easy. Isn't this what a lot when the armies were gathered against them the biggest armies? This is what Allah and His Messenger promises. And what Allah and His Messenger have said is true.
Well, my said to him in a manner with Islam, the only thing that increased in them didn't Christendom fear of them or anything. The only thing that increased in these believers was their Amen. And the submission told us
not escaping to look for any way that they can find halal haram to find some kind of solution to get out of there. Oh, let's meet with those disbelievers and maybe make some Alliance and you know, we're brothers and we were just joking about everything we said about you.
They said this is what the law and His Messenger promised and what alone his message is true. The only thing that increased them was amen and submission to Allah subhana wa Tada.
I will end on that point. Obviously, there's many ramifications from torkel Allah and also first aspect of the data, practical ramifications.
Maybe I'll touch upon one or two more next time, maybe to Monica level 100.
