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

If I must die, you must live, to tell my story, to sell my things to buy a piece of cloth in some strings make it white, with a long tail.

00:00:16--> 00:00:43

So that a child somewhere in Gaza while looking heaven in the eye, awaiting his dad who left in a blaze, and bid no one farewell, not even to his flesh, not even to himself, sees the kite, my kite you made flying up above and thinks for a moment an angel is there, bringing back love.

00:00:45--> 00:00:50

If I must die, let it bring hope. Let it be a tail.

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

This was the last poem of Rifat Allah the year ear

00:00:57--> 00:01:07

who was an academic writer, a poet and the voice of Uzza for the English speaking world. He died with his family yesterday

00:01:09--> 00:01:19

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Shara freedom ba were more serene Muhammad Rasool Allah so Allah Allah Allah He bought it.

00:01:20--> 00:01:35

From my brother, my brother and sisters, the topic of my hotbar today is Allah basically light that my No clue. Unless there is a truly and very, the peace, peace of mind is at the core of a lion remembering Allah subhanaw taala.

00:01:36--> 00:01:51

We live in troubled times, as us a huge sign of which is the very sharp increase in mental illness of different kinds, ranging from anxiety to much more serious ailments resulting at the extreme in despair and suicide.

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

In 2021 48,001 83 Americans 48,001 83 Americans died by suicide, and there were 1.7 million suicide attempts.

00:02:10--> 00:02:19

An estimated 49,004 49 people died by suicide the following year in 2022.

00:02:20--> 00:03:01

The rate of suicide, interestingly, is highest in middle aged white men, the most privileged section of the population who accounted for 70% 69.68% of suicides in 2021. The strange thing is that this is happening in the wealthiest, most powerful country in the world. While in Palestine, there are no suicides, not one, people are being massacred, but they have set such an example of reasonable color and sugar, being content with the decree of Allah, and gratitude, that it has become the reason for a lot of people converting to Islam.

00:03:02--> 00:03:21

We don't know what Allah subhanaw taala has decreed for Philistine and for the Palestinian people. But we look beyond the material visible world. If we look beyond the material visible world, we will be able to see the gates or Janna open above Gaza

00:03:22--> 00:03:28

and the angels escorting the souls of the shahada into everlasting grace and beauty.

00:03:30--> 00:03:42

We will be able to smell the perfume of the most beautiful mosque as the curtains between the Alamo shahada and the high level of a bar parted. For those who are lost Panatela chose to honor

00:03:43--> 00:04:11

like it happened when the Mongols were destroyed dock dogs in the embassy falafel and then became Muslim, and became the defenders of Islam. The West which is blindly supporting genocide, we wake up in sha Allah, as it sees the true strength and power of the human being, which is not in weapons or money, but in heart and spirit. As someone said, courage is made in Philistine courage is made Palestine

00:04:13--> 00:04:20

our Palestinian brothers and sisters are demonstrating a level of this courage, which I'm not sure has ever been seen in the history of humankind.

00:04:22--> 00:04:32

To mention just one clip I saw a journalist asks a Palestinian man, you have no bread, no water, no electricity. How will you survive?

00:04:34--> 00:04:41

How will you live? The wild smiles, looks up at the heavens raises his index finger and says but we have Allah

00:04:43--> 00:04:56

you can see the Wonder on the face of the journalist. The reality is that you can't kill someone who refuses to die. Because death is not the death of the body, but the death of the heart and spirit.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

The body will perish no matter where we live.

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

But the heart and spirit live and die by different rules.

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

They live when they are connected to Allah.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

And a weakness in that connection makes them sick and a break kills them.

00:05:15--> 00:05:31

The response of the Philistine a brother points to the meaning of real wealth. Surely Allah subhanaw taala to truly Rasulullah sallallahu would have been proud of these people. I remember the Hadees of Rasulullah sallallahu in Lhasa, Imam Muhammad

00:05:33--> 00:05:38

is even the molecule of the law no Karrakatta masala is a Hollywood seller.

00:05:39--> 00:05:50

Wanted to any lucky to have any color for Carla as Hubble Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our laser

00:05:51--> 00:06:00

jasola color and Thomas heavy while I can be whiny Alladhina amanu be while I'm yami

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

Olga masala Elisa that was

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

and has been medical the alarm who reported that also As Salam said, I wish I could meet my brothers, my brothers sisters, the Sahaba said I will not your brother's here. So Allah Rasulillah Salam said You are my Sahaba but my brothers are those who have faith in me, yet they never saw me.

00:06:27--> 00:06:27

One Allah

00:06:29--> 00:06:30

one law he

00:06:33--> 00:06:37

this hadith belongs to the Palestinian people, because insha Allah

00:06:40--> 00:06:43

Allah subhanaw taala mentioned those who know Him and love Him

00:06:44--> 00:06:56

and He said Alladhina amanu words that were in Nan colo boom, basically Allah, Allah basically Allah He talks about in Nakuru and sort of right Allah subhanaw taala said,

00:06:59--> 00:07:06

those who believe and whose hearts find comfort in the remembrance of Allah. These are the people meaning the believers.

00:07:07--> 00:07:14

Surely in the remember, remembrance of Allah, in remembering Allah do hearts, find comfort and peace.

00:07:16--> 00:07:32

Let us see what zikr of Allah does, and how it produces peace of mind. The word seeker means to remember, this implies that we know the one we are remembering, because you can't remember anything or anyone the first time you encounter them.

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

So do we know Allah?

00:07:36--> 00:07:39

I don't mean no about I mean, no.

00:07:40--> 00:07:58

Knowing about deals with the intellect, knowing deals with emotion. The difference between knowing about and knowing is the difference between steroidal academic knowledge and a personal connection, which guarantees at a response.

00:08:02--> 00:08:07

The difference between knowing about and knowing is the difference between

00:08:09--> 00:08:14

a lightning bug and lightning

00:08:15--> 00:08:17

glowworm and lightning.

00:08:18--> 00:08:26

When you think of someone who you may know a lot about, nothing happens to you. But when you think about someone you know,

00:08:27--> 00:08:29

you can feel the emotions in your heart,

00:08:30--> 00:08:33

your body temperature and breathing changes.

00:08:34--> 00:08:38

it may bring a smile to your lips, or a frown on your brow.

00:08:40--> 00:08:46

This is what Allah subhanaw taala described as a sign of the believer. Responsive hearts.

00:08:48--> 00:09:00

He said geladeira Lewins are on file in number BootMii Nona. livina Eva leuke Allah Who would you let global or either to literally him, to whose other to me man while our behavior

00:09:02--> 00:09:17

he said which means the true believers are though are only those whose hearts tremble at the remembrance of Allah, whose faith increases when his revelations are recited to them and who put their trust in there.

00:09:18--> 00:09:22

My question to myself and you therefore is, do we know Allah?

00:09:24--> 00:09:28

To Know Allah, let us see how he gender general who introduced himself.

00:09:29--> 00:09:35

I have requested chef, our Imam Sheikh Abdullah has the

00:09:36--> 00:09:44

house of Allah to recite some ayat, which are Allah subhanho delas introduction of himself

00:09:45--> 00:09:48

and let us focus on our hearts and see if anything is happening there.

00:09:50--> 00:09:54

If it helps you, you might shut your eyes while you listen. Focus on your heart.

00:09:55--> 00:09:58

Not on the recitation. Beautiful though it is

along I had Allah Who slanted let me add the word mu mu whoo hoo go for

00:13:17--> 00:13:23

so long would not only not reflect on what you felt.

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

Ask why did you feel that? Or if you did not feel anything ask why not?

00:13:32--> 00:13:34

We know these ads so I won't translate them.

00:13:35--> 00:13:42

The first was idle corsi The second was the last wire to swell to hasher and the third was to the class.

00:13:45--> 00:13:51

This is one way to remember Allah subhanaw taala by reminding ourselves about his majesty and glory

00:13:53--> 00:13:56

and of reminding ourselves that this is the one we worship.

00:13:58--> 00:14:03

This produces the all of Allah subhanaw taala in our hearts. His Kusha

00:14:06--> 00:14:11

Hashmatullah is the root and foundation of Taqwa

00:14:12--> 00:14:18

a concern about the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. In all that we say and do

00:14:21--> 00:14:25

to ask this question and say, Will Allah be pleased with this?

00:14:27--> 00:14:34

Then there is another way to remember Allah subhanho wa Taala and that is by recalling his mercy and his blessings on us.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

His blessing that beyond counting

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

his blessings are beyond counting

00:14:46--> 00:14:52

because everything that Allah subhanaw taala gave us everything he did not give us is a blessing.

00:14:54--> 00:14:57

When revelation stopped for a while and as soon as a seller was very stressed about it

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

and his arm

00:15:00--> 00:15:06

And the wife of a will have used to taunt him saying that your God has

00:15:08--> 00:15:12

left you and so on so on. Allah subhanaw taala revealed Surah

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

to comfort resources

00:15:17--> 00:15:22

and it was about that I said, What do well Layli

00:15:25--> 00:15:34

Dogara Buka color while FIRA to Cairo like I mean who

00:15:35--> 00:15:39

what else over Utica Rob Booker Fatah

00:15:42--> 00:15:43

kya team

00:15:46--> 00:15:49

whoa Giada all

00:15:50--> 00:15:52

the way

00:15:58--> 00:16:04

but I'm Malia Dima taco or what um must

00:16:09--> 00:16:13

be near our Matthew Rob Vika had this.

00:16:15--> 00:16:23

Allah said, Allah subhanaw taala took an oath. He said by the morning sunlight and the night when it falls till

00:16:24--> 00:16:30

you're rub on a visa Allah Salem has not abandoned you, nor does he hate you

00:16:32--> 00:16:37

and the next life is certainly far better for you than this one.

00:16:39--> 00:16:43

And surely your Rob will give you so much

00:16:44--> 00:16:51

and surely your Rob will give so much to you that you will be pleased. Follow so far you will take our book of photography

00:16:54--> 00:17:07

and then Allah subhana wa reminds him SallAllahu Sallam of his own past and he says did you not find you as an offer and then shelter you? Do you not find you seeking guidance and guide you

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

and they do not find you needy and enrich you.

00:17:12--> 00:17:20

So do not oppress the offer. Nor repulse the supplicant the beggar the seeker the questioner

00:17:21--> 00:17:25

and proclaim and announced the blessings of Europe

00:17:26--> 00:17:53

are not doing at the zero of the surah here, but if you see what Allah subhanaw taala advisors also sell him to do, you will see that it reminded him to think of the blessings that Allah subhanaw taala bestowed upon him. The ways in which Allah subhanaw taala helped him in his past. And that is what we must do, reflect on all the ways in which Allah subhanaw taala helped and blessed us. In my life. This happened in the most important places without even my dua.

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

I didn't even know enough to ask Allah. I didn't know what to ask him, but he gave it

00:18:01--> 00:18:04

there are two I had in the Surah which I want to draw

00:18:05--> 00:18:09

to your attention, which we must thank Allah subhanaw taala for especially.

00:18:10--> 00:18:24

And these are a source of great happiness for us. First is when Allah subhanaw taala said, while Sophia Utica Rob Booker for Toronto, and surely your rub will give you so much that you will be pleased to

00:18:26--> 00:18:29

say then I live in a valuable galanos to say,

00:18:30--> 00:18:43

people say that the idea of greatest hope in the Quran is when Allah subhanaw taala said, cold yeah, bad yeah, Latinos are a formula and fusi la doctrina to me, Rahmatullah

00:18:44--> 00:18:49

in the La Jolla flew by Jamia in the hood for Rahim.

00:18:50--> 00:18:56

Allah subhana wa DeLaSalle, which means say oh Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam

00:18:57--> 00:19:13

that Allah says, all my slaves who have transgressed against themselves, do not lose hope in the Mercy of Allah for Allah subhanaw taala certainly forgives all sins. He is indeed all forgiving, Most Merciful.

00:19:14--> 00:19:21

And then earlier they allowed us to say, but we the family of Rasul Allah Azza wa sallam.

00:19:23--> 00:19:37

He said, we say that the idea of greatest hope is well on so far, Utica rabuka fatorda. And surely, your rub will give so much to you, that you will be pleased.

00:19:39--> 00:19:48

And he used to say that we say this because he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will never be pleased until every one of his ummah is in Jannah.

00:19:50--> 00:19:53

We ask Allah subhanaw taala for the sheer variety of resources

00:19:54--> 00:19:56

and to accept the Shiva in our field

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

for his intercession and

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

accept the decision in our favor. The second is the surah is when Allah's Valterra said, Well I'm Messiah Illa Allah

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

do not repulse the supplicant, the beggar the seeker the questioner.

00:20:15--> 00:20:23

I think about this, this is Allah subhanaw taala teaching his Navi and saying to him, Do not turn away anyone who comes to you empty handed.

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

There are tons of empty handed anyone who comes to you. So beautiful this advices do not turn away empty handed.

00:20:35--> 00:20:37

Anyone who comes to you

00:20:39--> 00:20:49

give him what you can help him as much as you are able. Now ask yourself if this is Robert al Amin advising Rahmatullah anatomy

00:20:50--> 00:20:56

about how he should treat the supplicant. How do you think he Jalla gelato himself?

00:20:58--> 00:21:06

How do you think he himself who has no limits on his generosity or his treasures, will treat those who ask Him?

00:21:07--> 00:21:23

How do you think Allah subhanaw taala will treat us when we go to him. So ask ALLAH SubhanA data with total certainty again, that he listens to us and will give us what we ask with an IVR in sha Allah

00:21:24--> 00:21:31

asked me this complete theory that inshallah Allah will give us what we ask with hiring.

00:21:34--> 00:21:38

dhikr remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala therefore does two things.

00:21:39--> 00:21:51

When we reflect on the glory and majesty of Allah, it produces Crusher to Allah in our hearts, which is the foundation of Taqwa and which opens the doors of Allah subhanahu tell us blessings and help.

00:21:52--> 00:21:59

When we reflect on his mercy and blessings, it enhances our gratitude towards him and our love for Him.

00:22:01--> 00:22:08

Finally, Allah subhanaw taala reminded us about the greatest reward of remembering let us just reflect on the meaning of this.

00:22:09--> 00:22:12

What does it mean to be remembered by Allah?

00:22:15--> 00:22:16

Allah subhanaw taala

00:22:17--> 00:22:18

mentioned

00:22:19--> 00:22:35

that the greatest reward is the reward of remembering. You remember him? He said, but we're only as CoCo was cruelly velata cfuw. Yeah, are you a Latina Armando Stein? Who is somebody you're solid, in the LA Hamas I believe.

00:22:38--> 00:22:40

Allah said, Remember me and I will remember you

00:22:42--> 00:22:44

and tag me and never be ungrateful.

00:22:46--> 00:22:47

For believers,

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

seek help

00:22:50--> 00:22:53

in patience, and prayer.

00:22:55--> 00:23:01

Be somebody was Allah. And Allah is truly with those who are patient alone with the subsidy.

00:23:02--> 00:23:10

That is just reflect on the meaning of desire. What does it mean to be remembered by Allah? What is more honorable and magnificent than to be remembered by Allah.

00:23:11--> 00:23:18

And not only that boneless mantha says, that for the one who remembers him and his patient, Allah is when

00:23:20--> 00:23:26

there is no treasure in this life or the next which is greater than them or yet, being with Allah.

00:23:27--> 00:23:28

That is the reward of the

00:23:29--> 00:23:38

pleasure to Allah keeps us protected from sin and disobedience of Allah and therefore in his protection and sugar, adds sweetness to life.

00:23:40--> 00:23:43

Increases the blessing and enhances our love for Allah.

00:23:45--> 00:24:14

One is a shield. The other is a light one protects the other illuminates the way forward. Ask Allah subhanaw taala for his protection for us all and for the elimination of our path by his new leading us to his pleasure, mercy and forgiveness.
