selling hamburgers are life
saving sell them to sleep and
living in some difficult times
and almost seemed as if less than $1 is increasing the level of difficulty almost on a daily basis
different kinds of things happen. The latest one is of course this Coronavirus May Allah protect everybody from this inshallah create a cure because of Surah Surah Sanam said Allah Subhana Allah does not create any disease without creating cure, so there is a cure, inshallah We ask Allah to show it to us inshallah. And for us to benefit from this and for people to be saved from it.
issue is to understand these difficulties and to
see what we need to do in order to save ourselves.
Obviously, the first and foremost thing is to understand that
nothing happens except by the will of Allah.
Neither any good nor any bad, nor any evil, nor any danger nor any safety, everything is only and only by the will of Allah subhanaw taala.
In the Hadees, in JAMA TVD. Narrated by members of della Anima.
He said I was behind rasulillah salam one day, when he said, Oh boy, I will.
I will teach you a statement.
And then he taught him, he said, Be mindful of Allah and he will protect you.
Be mindful of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And he will collect or to protect you.
Be mindful of Allah, and you will find him before you.
When you ask, ask Allah
and when you seek aid, seek Allah's aid on
know that if the entire creation were to gather together to do something to benefit you, you will never get any benefit except that which Allah has written for you.
And if they were together, to do something to harm you, you will not be harmed except by that which Allah has written for you.
The burdens are lifted and the pages are right.
And this is the
this is the head is in Jamey Tilly.
there are so many things for us to learn from this hubby's in Sharla.
First and foremost is to understand the relationship between Rasul Allah is Allah Salaam. And Abdullah bin Abbas have a lot
of good I've never So delana was the cousin of Rasul Allah is our son. He was the son of
Philip Delano. Who was the anchor officer. Nice.
So Abdullah minibus, availa Anima was the cousin of rasulillah.
He was the cousin but he was young. He was a young boy, he was maybe 10 years old or something like that, then only 10 or 12 years old. And he used to live with Russell realized
he had his own house what used to most of the time used to be with the VSA. And there are some very beautiful I had this related to have the live near bus.
One of the most beautiful of them is that Abdullayev nabasa della Anwar, he said that
I saw Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, awaken for the Hajj. Welcome in late
and he said I ran to get water for him for his widow.
Now think about this statement.
is also shows us the other of being with elders. The other being with our, with our teachers.
Here is a boy who is maybe 10 years old.
He did not say alarm woke up and woke me up
and told me to get what No,
he said I saw him waking up.
means what was his boy doing? He was already
he was not sleeping. So when he is in the company of resourcers lm he is not in a state of law and you know just doing so he is aware. He is aware of where he is he is aware of who he is with
He wants to get the maximum benefit of that company.
This is not anybody This is not my cousin. No, this is the Rasul of Allah. Allah. He happens to be my cousin. That's a coincidence. But I do not treat him like my cousin. No, this is the Rasul Allah. So this is the
chosen religion, then Abdullah nabasa or the Lama. He said, I brought water sola, sola, sola made boo.
And then he put his hand on my chest. And he said, Oh Allah, give him the understanding of the Quran. Allah
give him the understanding of the Quran I see this is the value of headman
So he said all I give him the understanding of the Quran and therefore Abdullah drivers of the llama is considered to be the greatest Mufasa of the soma is the first of those who who did the Quran explained. So he's considered with the greatest Mufasa of the Quran. inshallah. So this is the same person this Abdullah Abdullah, so this Abdullah Abdullah buzzworthy, Alon, Omar, he says that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said to him, yeah, Allah, shall I teach you something?
I will teach you a statement. I will teach you a fact. Now this also shows the love that Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had for him
because he's singling him out.
He's singling him out. He said I was behind. So maybe they were walking somewhere you will be had to is not in a class or something. No.
And then he says to him,
the essence of our dean.
He teaches him the essence of God. He said I will teach you a statement he said Be mindful of Allah
and he will protect.
What is the meaning of being mindful of Allah.
Being mindful of Allah inshallah means that we
constantly have an awareness of Allah subhanaw taala in our hearts and minds.
That we are engaged in the vicar of Allah Azza wa sallam said be
he said that never let your heart and your tongue be dry. Never let your tongue be dry. Always keep your tongue moist with the
the crapola smell. So this is the
the Hidayat of Salah. And
so he said keep your visit Be mindful of Allah so be mindful of Allah means to have this constant awareness that Allah subhana wa tada is with me that Allah subhanho wa Taala is
there are lies with me that Allah subhanaw taala is
seeing me hearing me, knows me watching me.
And what is the benefit of that? The benefit of Costa Rica of Allah is that Allah will protect you. So today we are sitting here as a Coronavirus is that, you know, may Allah protect us from infections? How will Allah protect me by his legal?
There are different people who are sending around all kinds of WhatsApp messages, read this surah that surah No need to do all that all these formulas stay away from this. Right We believe what they're
told us. We don't need anything else.
We believe what was said to us. So forget all these hours, just just do Vicar of Allah. Subhana Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah.
Allah, constant awareness of Allah subhanaw taala in our lives, I am, Allah is watching me Alhamdulillah so I get a sense of confidence from that. And the vision as Adam said, the benefit of that is Allah subhanaw taala will protect you.
Please notice he did not say protect you from this or that protect you. It's a general statement. Allah will protect you from whatever has the potential of Army, maybe it is physical, maybe it is spiritual. Right? So I know it protected. And then he said, Be mindful of Allah and you will find him before you
the whole time
to be in a state where life has it or not.
And we are standing in Salah to be in that state of Alaska.
And that was a lock on Nakata worship Allah as if allies as if I can see.
So the reason I'm saying be my
Full of Allah
and he will protect you and be mindful of Allah and he will find him before you.
I want to remind myself when you we talk about taking precautions to save ourselves from this
epidemic inshallah We ask Allah to help us and we should take this regard, washing your hands is that hygiene, all of this not collecting too many people in one place not going unnecessarily traveling No, no unnecessarily going to some crowded place. And religious, Islam does not prevent us from using science is not does not prevent us from taking precautions and so on. So,
but when we think about protection from something, do we think about Vicar of Allah subhanaw taala as a specific thing to do?
Do we do that? Or it's somewhere supposed to be? Yeah, Muslim zoid is somewhere floating in the air know.
When we make a plan is aligned this plan? Whatever is the plan.
Right? If I want to buy a house,
and I'm now sitting and making a plan, how do I buy a house I need Finance? I need to maybe I need to borrow some money or maybe I don't need to borrow the money, I have my savings by the savings. I will do this out. is Allah somewhere in this?
In this plan, He is Allah subhanho wa Taala does he exist in this plan? Because Allah is there anyway.
I always say this factor Allah into the equation because he is in it anyway.
Obviously this factor aligned to the equation, because he's in it anyway, you cannot ignore
the result of Allah subhanaw taala as power the result, as meaning
the result of Allah subhanaw taala is not something accidental? No, it is, we should think about that we should try to achieve it. And if we don't achieve it, then it has a negative potential. So where is Allah in this whole equation, we may we must be very clear and say that when we are talking about protection from this or that or whatever, factor Allah subhanaw taala in the equation because he is in it anyway. So let me set a set of Zen says Be mindful of Allah and you will find him before you. Be mindful of Allah and he will protect you. And then he said the third thing, when you ask, ask only Allah and when you seek aid when you seek help, seek Allah subhanaw taala.
So four, important things that also leitura salaam taught him number
one, be mindful of Allah, and Allah will protect you to be mindful of Allah. And you will find Allah subhanaw taala before you. Number three.
When you ask, ask only Allah. If you need anything.
Ask only Allah. Don't ask the people. Do not demean yourself. Do not insert yourself by asking people don't ask people ask only and number one is when you seek aid when you need help. seek the help of a lot of
This is a very, very important
lesson for us.
Of course, for example, if I need help,
I noticed allies only given the answer.
But like chef, because I don't know the craft. I become sick.
The chef is a magnetar
because he's upset.
Yes, yes. Very, very good question.
Oh brother is asking us
visit ask only Allah.
Seek help only from Allah
subhanaw taala. We don't deny this we accept this hamdulillah but for example, if I'm sick.
Now, I want to ask the chef to make dua for me, is this permissible? Can I do that? I will add to this. I am sick. Can I go to the doctor?
You did not ask that I'm asking. Can I go to the doctor? Can I take some medicine?
What is the answer? Yes.
So does this answer contradict the earlier thing? No.
We are asking we are using the as bap you're using the means that Allah created what is the as well we are as well for each other inshallah I request you whatever you require somebody for me for
I will go for you. Whereas not for each other.
Similarly, medicines if we are sick or some other means whatever it is that we need we have some means
so I asked a lot of Give me the allegan give me if we don't deny this if I do nothing if I simply sit here and if I make the yeah Allah feed me, can Allah feed Yes or no? Yes of course.
But is this the recommended way? No recommended ways you make the effort.
You make the effort.
So go boom the vote, I know by the vote whatever.
But know that the one feeding you is only Allah. It is by the topic of Allah that you went to get the vote it is by the topic of Allah that you asked somebody to make what it is by the Office of Allah jell o jell o that you took this measure or that measure.
So no problem in sha Allah with using means, because these means are created by Allah. But what is our Akita? What is our belief, our belief is the power is not in the means the power is in Allah.
So why do we Why do we still seek the means? Because Allah subhanaw taala told us yeah, you Allah zerah monoester I know we Sabri masala
necrolysis Oh you believe take the helping these the era of server and Salah. What is our server is patience server is making the maximum effort server is to do whatever is in our power to achieve what we need. And then Allah said was Allah and Allah after the server, what do you do? You ask Allah Subhana Allah, you may god.
You pray and you make dua. Why must you do this? Why is only seven not sufficient because it the law is the tar heel of the heart. It is the purification of the heart. So after making the effort, when I make dua, I'm saying, Oh Allah, I made the effort because you told me to make the effort.
But I know that this effort has no value. This effort can do nothing, unless you order. So Allah, I asked you for your pocket, I asked you for your order, I asked you for your head. So under a very nice question. This is the understanding of the Hadith that by all means, take the help of the means which Allah has provided us Alhamdulillah. But our faith and belief is that the action happens, the result happens not because of the means but because of the Musab people as bad, not because of the suburb, but because of the creator of the ASVAB. Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Yeah, that's all of that. Yeah. All of that is not permissible because people who go to graves, they are asking help from somebody who has already died. And Allah, Allah told us in the Quran very clearly that the people who have died, he certainly says Allah, you cannot make them here.
Right? You cannot, they cannot do anything. They have, we have We are not saying that people who died are bad, they're good people. hamdulillah they were good people in this world. But once you are dead, your dialogue with this world is CATIA, It is finished. You are in the bursa, you are behind the wall, you have nothing to do with this world. You do not know what is happening here. And you cannot do anything to anybody here neither good nor bad. So anybody going and asking somebody who is in a grave is misguided the person is ignorant, he does not understand it was explained to him that please don't do this. It is if you are doing it with belief it is shipped. If you are doing it
without belief it is any case a matter of gelato, please don't ask they cannot do anything. But asking somebody who's alive, you are sitting before me. No problem. You are sitting here. I can ask you, but somebody who is dead already know, whoever it might be worth even doesn't realize ourselves, we do not make dua to the soul. We make dua to Allah Subhana.
And why do we do that? Because this is what rasuna sera sera taught us. Nevis did not teach us to make dua to him. There was a famine, there was a very big famine there was a lot of
in the time of satara Delano was a very big family. A lot of people died a lot of animals died and so on and so forth. And seven Amara Delano took the people out of Medina to make salad let's discuss how to make the dropper and salad for red. Right who's who's doing that? Omar Abdullah, who is alive all the Sahaba
Then who is in that congregation that group all of the Salah. What do they do they go out or Medina and they are making dua and they are making Salah for
read. Then what does as Rama vilano What does he do after praying the Torah car, he requests a bus when Abdulmutallab the anchor of Rasulullah Salah this evening about his father.
He requests him he brought him and he said please stand on the member and make dua he said when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa sallam was alive and among us, we used to ask him to make dua for matter for rain.
rasulillah salam is no longer among us. You are the army You are the uncle of the prophets, Allah Selim, please make dua for rain.
My question is, did Santa Omar not know where is the grave of Ursula Ursula
is buried next week.
So why did they not go to the grave of the Solomon stand and say, Yasser Allah, please make dua for rain? jasola send us they could have done this. No.
They're gonna I mean, they knew where the grave is. They were there. Right? They could have done this. They could have stood there and they would have been sooner than the grave. They could have said, Yasser Allah, they could have made top of the grave they could have said jarocin Allah give us this give us that. Why did they not do that? Because this is not the dean taught to them.
Their chef, their teacher, their pasta, who's who won masala Holly.
They did not teach them to do this. He taught them to do what they did which is ask Allah Subhana Mata and you can ask your question you can ask somebody who you think is Mashallah, you know, I think my brother is better than me. So as please make dua for me, Allah Allah mother is better on the issue is, this is my human, this is my belief about my brother Hamdulillah, Allah subhanaw taala will grant this door so we ask whoever it is, please make dua for us and Alexa.
So this is a very good question. These are very important
matters for us to understand. So let me tell us and then says after these four things, be mindful of Allah and he will protect you be mindful of Allah and you will find him before you. When you ask, ask Allah alone and when you seek aid, seek Allah Zayed. Then he says that notice that if the entire creation now please understand, he's not saying the entire world. You're not saying all human beings. He's not saying everyone who's alive now. No. And tag creation, what does it mean? It means from the first thing which was created to the last thing which will be created, whatever it is,
maybe human may not be human, maybe stars and Moloch and Gene and Allah knows what what Allah created, we do not know whatever it is. And as soon as the entire creation was to gather together, to do something to benefit you.
You will never get any benefit other than what Allah has written for you.
So why is he saying this is a don't look to people for reward, no need to go and you know, beg this woman beg that or no need? What Allah has written for me Alhamdulillah I will get, I must make the effort that I should make. But no need to beg and plead. No need to do anything haram No need to lie and cheat, no need to deceive somebody, no need to take money on interest, no need to do something which Allah has prohibited in order to benefit yourself because you cannot benefit if the whole of entire creation, not the whole world, entire creation
comes together and wants to benefit you they cannot do anything more than what Allah has already written for you. And then he said the opposite of that, if the entire creation comes together
and wants to harm you.
They cannot have you except what Allah has written for. So what about Coronavirus? What about any other virus? That is part of creation. Right?
So no need to panic, no need to run your under under law.
By all means, we have responsibility by all means take precautions, but no need to go overboard with it.
Have faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala and ask Allah
then the solar Solar System said
Penza lifted and the pages are dried what Allah has written me as Catherine has written, nobody can change that except we do not say that Allah will not change them.
Hola. Hola. Hola.
So if somebody says, Can my color be changed? Yes.
Will it be changed? I don't know Haskell. That's the that is the honest answer. Like we cannot I cannot speak on behalf of Allah.
So this is a I think in terms of our
living Islam session this is a beautiful Hadith
where Allah Subhana Allah gave this beautiful advice to a beloved nabasa the llama and
lesbian intelligent. We ask Allah subhanaw taala for his help We ask Allah subhanaw taala to enable us to live our lives in a way where he is pleased with us. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make us on those who are a means and cause of benefit for everybody else.
Salah will carry while he was happy
