serve that you
have the heart
It's called host no one knew the language of Hannah Medina.
Hospital one believed so Panama.
The best way to translate this
is to assume
the best about Allah and expect the best from Allah. soprano.
You assume the best about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And you expect the best from Allah subhana wa Taala.
As a matter of fact, just three days before the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he left a will pertaining to the subject to the oma at large.
In a Muslim Rahim Allah. He Kumbaya howdy Jared is not the land of the law.

a slave of Allah is not given any thing better than having good expectation about Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Brothers and sisters in Islam
hospital one like I started is the act of the heart, a bed of convenience. This is why it has to be accompanied with the action of the limbs. So yes, you're having good expectation of Allah subhana wa Tada. While you're striving to do this, you're thinking assuming the best about Allah subhana wa tada expecting the best from Allah subhanho wa Taala while you're striving while you're working, otherwise, it would be
And somehow Allah, this is what Christians turned their religion into.
They said all what you have to do is have faith in the grace of Allah. That's it, that he sent his son down to earth to die for you. You're just you're at ease, you're good
for the whole,
which is really distorted theology because Prophet sallahu salatu wa sallam, he came confirming the Torah, confirming the rules of Allah subhanaw taala, that you still have to strive to do your best. And meanwhile, expect the good from Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Brothers and sisters in Islam in the time I have today, there are certain occasions certain times in our lives, we this servitude over the course of one Nebula must skyrocket must noun, it must increase in order to help you out.
And one of these first occasions let's go five or six of them
is when you find yourselves completely engulfed in sins.
a lot of us by the way, think I can.
I can do good.
I can meet up with a law.
And this is by the way, one of the tools that shaitan uses on us.
Police the name Iblees derives from an Arabic noun called lls which is the speed that you find yourself. You're engaged in so many senses
that you convincing yourself that you cannot create in your life that you cannot become a better Muslim.
This is so one builder for Canada. This is a
Having no thought about Allah subhana wa Taala if you have good thoughts, because after all who's gonna help you become a better Muslim? Who will? Who you you mean? Allah subhanho wa Taala no sin, the big
acts in one of Europe, even what we find sometimes woefully willingly or unwillingly ourselves in a fitness with the brothers. You know you're trying to do something and you find yourself in a fitness and you know you're trying to fix it but is not fixed. Sometimes you just have to just take a backseat, go to work and have one billet Allah will sort things out for you. If you exhausted the means if you try again, I don't want you to think that you should be passive about the situation No, you should be brought active to the best that you can be. But now leave the rest to Allah subhanho wa Taala to hand to handle the situation for you.
I go back to the sentence.
Half of the hubby Vicki daddy he Colm indweller in the biography of one of the scholars of the oma COVID
Rahim Allah avadi, one of the outstanding scholars of this oma and so Pinilla, he used to be someone who would sit on the road to steal the caravans and kill people and steal babies basically houses.
So he said, One day while I'm stealing one of the houses, I ended up having a relationship with one of the women. And for me to go to that house, I have to climb and walk on the floors of multiple houses. So one night I'm going to meet my date.
And then as he is walking, someone was praying that God
and he's reciting these verses for you so rotten. How do you know what the verse that says?
Allah mia nealon leadin, a man who talk Shaku Lee karela Juana De La Nina have gone. It's a beautiful, beautiful verse. Have the time come for the hearts of those who believe to be affected to be touched by the revelation.
they'll follow you said one law he but Allah this verse was like,
like somebody stroke stroke me strike like a stroke in my heart, I, I got frozen on the top of the house, I couldn't move.
I couldn't move.
Why I'm putting this versa, it was
the next verse to it, or the verse after level unknown law, you have to
be informed that Allah gives life to earth after it's dead. Very soon we're approaching the spring where you have to take care of your backyards and front yards and and the leaves are out in the green so Pamela, will be informed that Allah gives life to earth after it was posted. Likewise, all what you have to do is give the revelation a chance in your lives. And Allah subhanho wa Taala can resurrect you exactly the way that he is a rockstar
so quickly, but again, you have to have good expectation about Allah subhanho wa Taala. Brothers and sisters in Islam, when we meet,
this is the time also to have good expectation about Allah assume the best from Allah assume the best about Allah that Allah subhanaw taala is able to fulfill me and expect that Allah subhana wa Taala is not going to let you down. You know we make a lot of
the oma make a lot of God. But what is missing is this component, good expectation that you assume the best about Allah meaning Allah is almighty, Allah is powerful, Allah can make what you're asking happen
Allah has not gonna let you down he said subhana
wa sallam said about Allah Subhana Allah Subhana. If you make dua, he gets one of the three. Whether you get what you asked for one, or Allah Subhana Allah will avert you from Allah.
calamity equals the blessing the bounty you're asking for. Three Allah will spell it for you.
So when you make yaqeen certainty who someone that Allah subhana wa tada will take care of you, Allah subhanho wa Taala will fulfill this dream that Allah subhana wa tada is not going to let you down brothers and sisters in Islam
in the story of Israel
It is really one of the most fascinating stories that you read
is available on our is one of the companions who was giving left riding of gentlemen.
the night to fill German laylat with German, the battle
he called upon his son Abdullah,
for color we are going he said to me,
in our on our cell ohada
I think I'm gonna die tomorrow. I am just and I have a lot of debt.
The Hadees states that he owed alpha l. Dino, almost 2 million, something like that a lot of debt. But how we acquired this debt by the way that people used to trust him.
The people used to trust him, so he was like a bank. So they would get the money Keep this money for me. Now, if you give me $1,000 and asked, that's the ruling, and asked me to keep it for you. If someone comes and steals the $1,000 are not obliged to give it back to you. All I have to tell you is sorry, I lost it
That job I used to tell the person Okay, give it to me as a debt as a loan. Now if I lose it, I have to work. That's how he acquired all this debt.
He called upon his son Abdullah Abdullah.
Allah who Casa
de bacala. He said my son, I think I'm gonna be one of the first people to die tomorrow in this matter. Please take care of me that
day in the hair that that is.
Nabi sallallahu, alayhi wa sallam stars. I mean,
where do we come in? At? Walker Harbinger. I see Chris is with you from the weight, the heavy weight of that.
Then he said to him, my son, if you do not find money to pay my debt, I want you to go to Harlem, in Mecca. And you made this while you're
Mohler, are you the protector of Israel? pay back the debt of
one law he Abdullah his son swears by Allah, anytime that I would come across with come across a hardship that I am unable to pay back that he will I would go to the club and I would make this dryer three times
a day, I would find the money to pay back is there.
One biller, this is one biller panel data. This is the servitude that elevates you in the sight of Allah subhana wa Tada. Brothers and sisters in Islam, so many times will ask to give and when we have the money, when we have the money when we're able to but we do not give Why? Because of elfo to Allah Subhana Allah that Allah subhanaw taala is not going to give you back the money.
So just just to give you the spirit of of what I'm trying to say here are Rasul sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said by Allah, I would have 20 dinar, more or less I could be mistaken in the number here.
And if I would not if I would wait for three nights without giving it out, without giving it in South Africa.
Allah has been killing me. Yeah, Mohammed, Mohammed, what did you think of Allah, that Allah is not gonna replace this money for you.
That's why you want to withhold it. You want to keep it
in Matura now
he he's one of the 10 as well, one of the companions giving lead writing of gentlemen
in the summer
during a time of drought
For Subhana Allah he received 900 camels,
carrying all type of food visitation.
900 camels. So these 900 camels passed by the nature of your loved one. But you know when when camels walk the economic sound, this is the extended Wi Fi Shas Who's this, they said the Mona, Mona, our mother, this is the caravan of Abdullah, now passing by 900 camels. Then she said, in Nevada junius colgin, Nathanael
of man had a man who is agenda by the virtue of his money.
When Abdullah nonword this, the statement was conveyed to him,
even though he knows that he was named, and how do you facilitate abilities from the 10? But he came to me
and he said, Is it true your alma mater? Is it true is it it is true? I heard the messenger sallallahu Sallam saying something in that context. He said Bushido law he said, bear witness that those 900 camels, carrying all this food for the sake of Allah
given it for the sake of Allah.
So he goes out, as soon as he goes out. All the businessmen in Medina meet your man, tell us your caravan. How much will you give? How much will you give? He said, we'll give you twice said no. Three times three times the amount you double, triple. They went as far as five times and they said to him, no one in the Arabia does this. He said, You know what, I get 700 times already. I have a deal for 700 times. With who? With a loss of Hannah. One of the people came to him and he said to him, couldn't you just keep too hungry for your family? He said what the owner knew was somebody who spent something in the morning he receives 10 times in the evening.
What I'm gonna if I give it out, now, I get it back 10 times in the evening. So person one believes and stinginess, by the way is because of this that a person is afraid that Allah Subhana was that is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam token Alton this
fella said three things I'm wanting to take an oath on is Marina Casa Marina musataha. Brothers and sisters in Islam. Another time, we need to have these high expectations. good thoughts about Allah Subhana Allah when you're sick,
when you get sick, you know sometimes we get infected with a disease near and dear. You must have good thought about Allah Subhana Allah, Allah insha Allah is gonna kill you is going to help you hamdulillah you've been healthy just temporarily in sha Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala will make this a means for me to expiate some of my sins. This is the positive attitude that Islam instills in us at these times of calamities as these times of hardship will add up and more flood was soon an eternity. If not best is the narrator. He said the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to visit an old man who was suffering or going through illness, he was having severe fever.
But when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam arrived, he needed
Sir tahune insha Allah.
That's Jani is a term for who this disease you're going through is whether he's making dua that Allah will cure him, or whether the whole cleansing in the sense that you going through the illness will cleanse you from yourself.
That's how you should think when you're sick, that Allah has cleansing you from sins, or Allah subhana wa Taala will give you you know what the man said, Ni, la bella Mata fool Allah Raja Lin carry to zero.
This is a CD, boiling fever on an old man like me, which is going to lead me to go to my green
table here, then it is.
Two days later he passes away.
That person have been a Buddha is a servitude that helps us to maintain
A positive attitude, even at the times of calamities, brothers and sisters in Islam, one of these times also, we, you need to
develop the servitude is when someone dies,
if that person is dear to
his beloved you
if you go through the Quran and the Sunnah.
And just both the calamities and the hardships in the scale, the power of the line
that you lose your,
your son or daughter,
that your child passes away,
is is is a hard phrase, in experience. It's tough.
It's extremely tough.
Just to show you.
So if you only had one of the scholars of Hadith, he came across the text
about, you know, the calamity of losing your son or daughter.
And that he was
if you have good expectation about Allah, or assume goodness, that Allah does this for our wisdom, to the extent that his son, one day was walking in front of him, Heather, even ambulate, half of
you know what the thought occurred to in his chest. He thought about it. You know what he said? Yeah, when I, Allah.
Because, again, he read the reward, if you're patient,
you will not be as normal just
laying in bed at the heart of the calamity, the greater the reward.
There's enough equal. So he read the Hadith, regarding the hardship, and the reward for the hardship.
So his son might have thought of him. And the thought occurred to visit my son, why didn't you but he said in his, in his he didn't utter the words, but he, the thought occurred to him, you know, we're not held accountable for the thoughts. So he said, My son wants him to die and so I am patient, then I will receive the reward.
Because of you, I go to gentlemen.
So panaway, who has son passes away?
It happened that his son actually passed away.
They asked him pay attention to
how do you feel? You know what he said? What law he By Allah, abou them and mineral pools.
Am urinating blood because of the greed over my son.
It's a hot calamities, because you need to realize this.
The love that we have for our children
is of a type called feel free.
You don't have to you don't pretend you don't pretend it.
It's made up. It's encrypted. It's in you accept you. The filter is corrupt. That's another thing we see sometimes, especially at this age and time we have parents who kill their children. That's these are the odds but the normal course of action is your son, your daughter, you love them by inclination.
The Odin Suleiman
the two sisters will go Hurry up
the two sisters, the older one has a child and the younger one had a child almost the same age.
So they were sitting down.
The wolf came and grab the son of the younger one.
So they are not one world with her older sister over the leftover child that this is my son, I'll take it from I'll take him for me.
So they went to the Dalai Lama to judge the second the case. So it seems like the younger one was very good in crying and you know in presenting your case, you see judges go with material evidence. They say what is the material evidence and
he wrote that the younger one gets the child
so in the way out there
quarrelling, you know that this is my son who's sitting by the door. Suleiman.
He said, Why are you calling? Why are you arguing? He said, This is my son and your father rule for him to be with her.
And he is mine.
He said, I have a good idea for you. This is very filled by the I'm just giving you the meaning I'm not making up this stuff.
Is it bring me an eye.
I will cut the son this child into two halves, you get a half and
you know, the older one shot.
Know, give him to her.
Sulaiman said this is usen up Kim. That's how people that you're willing to sacrifice
not having your son to say that had our
look at the plan. You'll never find one command in the Quran commanding the parents to love the children.
Not a single one, except one which I will share with you why except one. But you always find the command for the children to love the parents.
Because you love for the parents, or from the second time
that the one single command in the Quran. Regarding the parents loving the children to hear a few saltiness, you see como la houfy.
why about the inheritance? Why? Because some parents they ended up having multiple children, and they ended up loving one more than the other. And that would influence them to be unfair in the distribution of the will the inheritance Yeah, follow he's telling you listen, be fair to all of them.
That's the only but the rest is commending us
when you lose your son when you lose, but when this happens
and we discussed the subject of a cutter before Yeah, it was Allah subhanho wa Taala will never ordain sharp Muslim. Absolute evil.
No, will never. But Allah May ordain sharpness v. Yani sharpness be in your eyes, it's evil. But Allah turns out to be good afterwards, but you don't see and the story of Musa explain this to us.
You see the story of Musa and explain this so well to us. You see Moosa got a free ride.
They got a free ride.
has access to the future,
to the divine knowledge and divine wisdom. And he was commanded. He started digging a hole in the ship.
Now, Moosa saw this from the eyes of what now? Now, he's judging the situation now. So he got angry at him, come on.
These, these guys give us a free ride. Imagine somebody gives you a free ride, and then you start messing around with his car. You give us a free ride and you're digging a hole in their ship. You're causing a defect in their ship.
Later on, we'll find out what.
During the time of Torah in Egypt, we used to hear the stories that the people because there is no security that people would stand on the road with machine guns. So you're passing with your car. And if your car is fancy and good, Get out.
Get out they would actually kill you. If you don't just hand over the keys. But if your car isn't, yeah, Annie.
mcg Why would I take a car like this?
Again, the point is, there is always a wisdom. Now we go back to this calamity.
When Allah subhana wa Taala sees is the soul of the son or the daughter of someone.
Look at the Hadith. Allah with them send the angels
and Allah knows
go and find out
what my slave is seeing. What is he doing? How is he reacting? How is he receiving? Now, they will find him having good thoughts about Allah expecting the best for my bar
and you will translate this insane and hamdulillah
Alhamdulillah so the angels would go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
He single handedly
he single hamdulillah. When Allah would say, Abdi, my slave, occurred to me, fell just a cubby.
I took a piece of his flesh, a piece of his liver. I don't know how to translate this, but this is the best I can do. But I'm sure there is a better way to put it.
I took a piece of him
and he sang hamdulillah if newly activated feagin build for my slave a house in Ghana and call it the house of dreams. Some movable you can come.
Why? Because he's having good thoughts about Allah. He's expecting the best that his son or daughter are in a good place with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Brothers and sisters in Islam. We live at a very difficult time. Oh, I bet that will come at these times of trials and tribulations. The rituals are the actions the beliefs of the heart are so important to make you go on and carry on akula
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Laval humble huson was sent out we'll
watch how to Allah Allah illallah wa what's the hula Sharif yaku
Mohammed an Abu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa sallam, brothers and sisters in Islam.
You know, traveling around the Muslim world, which you like I understand but
there is some sort of a psychological defeat
in with Muslims, I understand it's in a way Yanni justify.
We just have to hear the news. Read the news. Look at the media.
Any bloodshed in the face of this earth? I challenge you it is the blood of a Muslim just looking to go to the map today and go after every area where there is a conflict and there is there are people dying Muslims Muslims are in rd.
You know what's happening to our brothers in Syria? Our brothers in philosophy in Burma
and that is an Asian
Allah here in Egypt. May Allah have mercy on the Egyptians.
But you may not be hearing this but people are beginning to starve.
Start food basics. It's really tough
psychological defeat that led to this. But Subhanallah in spite of this, Islam teaches us to have good expectation
about Allah and expect the best out of that situation and to stay optimistic.
And I'll close my football with that story.
Dr. Nadia Hatton with FC Magellan compiled it as well. With axial colita Allah Allah Houma medical,
the vector of
or the French tunings was named after auto tuning the Alliance because all the evil powers in the face of this URL got together to why Islam from the feasts and the earth, the face of the earth once and for all.
the People of the Book living in Medina, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam established with demand a covenant and he fulfilled his covenant, but they betrayed
they need an alliance,
that they would help perform
10,000 marching towards Medina.
You know that the number of Muslims men and women and children, not the army is not even matching this number.
Well, let's go and read. There is a whole chapter called we'll go and read the verses.
What are we gonna do?
fight the enemy.
Sell man will be Alon, the person.
You know, that's the beauty of Islam your whole life is a religion where, you know, you come in and you bring in your help, you know, the said O Messenger of Allah. Back in Virginia. When we were faced with such a situation, we would dig a trench, a hole. You know, they used to fight with horses and so they they could not cross yet
the loss and I'm like the idea so much and he abducted immediately. He divided the Muslims into more hygiene and
he given each one of them a shield, go start digging the trench and so forth. They came actually
the fact without salmonella is a mohajir
is an immigrant from Mecca or Ansari, or from the village of Medina Rasul Salam wanted to reward him for such a brilliant idea. And he made that famous statement sell man woman
sell man salmonids from my family is from my family. Mahajan
shared the point of reference in the story here that they came across a huge rock, huge rock hidden in the sense. They couldn't even move it.
You need to understand that they were so hungry to reality did not have that physical strength.
The Hadith tells us that
sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself was trying to rocks around his tummy with the ability just to hold himself because he's hungry, but they couldn't break. So they went to the prophets of Allah Allah Allah Mundo said O Messenger of Allah help us out. So sal Allahu alayhi wa sallam came himself and he started taking care of that huge rock. He had a tool in his hand. So you know when metal and rock collides what happened.
Allahu Akbar, look at this, look at this situation in this situation. Look at this. Look at this. This is the attitude of a believer.
This is what you call assuming the best of what Allah had expecting the best from Allah.
Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, for the hot Khufu
that balances of the Romans will be Muslim.
Islam will go through
Istanbul, Istanbul, you know, Costantino stamboul used to be the capital of Rome.
Again, Allahu Akbar, all of Asia will be Muslim
Ummah, what beryllium and all of your men will be Muslim.
We are just too boring. You know, look at this. We're here. We cross, what, seven, eight hours, transatlantic, and you come here and you find them that isn't that that statement was made 1400 years ago.
That's awesome than being optimistic. That you're trusting a law that you're counting on Allah subhana wa tada that he will deliver you He will take care of you, brothers and sisters in Islam. In closing, for you to have that servitude will established and built in your heart. Your knowledge of a law must increase.
You must know who Allah is, is my His power, His wisdom, his knowledge, you must get to know Allah subhanho wa Taala and you must thrive as well. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to make us among those who assume the best about Allah subhana wa tada and expect the best from Allah subhana wa Taala I have to finish with this. And I know I've been bragging about this, as I promised, this is the last thing. One last situation that you need to have good expectation from Allah is that the bed of death
when you're dying,
or when you go and find someone dying, within a four hour righteous three, this is when they go and they sit next to somebody dying. They used to remind him of the good things that he did.
So that he begins what the living, good expectation about Allah Subhana and remember the Hadith has started the whole powered with when did the Prophet make that Paddy? When did he leave us with this? Well, when he was actually what, himself going through this, where he certainly tirmidhi had it aniseed nomadic love your loved one. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went to a young man who was dying.
I am man who's
Going through the agonism konica Digital. How do you feel called our law here Rasulullah Allah messenger of Allah in the law, law.
I have good expectation about Mr. Raja,
but I'm afraid of my sins.
So the hope is in Allah nothing new Rahman nothing your actions in Allah there will be expectation about Allah that Allah will accept the diamond for me, and I'm waiting for my sin. You know what the prophet sallallahu Sallam said to him, actually, blood piling those two. Being in a heart of a believer at this situation, accept a loss of handout Allah would grant that person what he hopes for, and he will protect him from what he feeds. Those two fellas Allah subhanaw taala a new office in London at your bellami Allahumma.
