LaDonna Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala COVID mursaleen

00:00:06--> 00:00:13

Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam de Sleeman kathira Sierra Nevada. Now brother and sisters I

00:00:14--> 00:01:09

was talking about talking about Taku. And the reason I'm talking about Oculus because this is one of the major benefits that we get from Alibaba is to reflect on Allah subhanaw taala on our connection with Allah subhanaw taala and to benefit from this connection, right? Islam is the meaning of living the faith. Islam is a Deen Islam is not just a bunch of rituals connected with worship. Islam is the way for us to live our entire lives in such a way that our lives are full of beauty and dignity, and peace and harmony and benefit for ourselves and for all those who are around us. Irrespective of whether those are Muslim or not Muslim. Irrespective of whether those are human beings, whether they

00:01:09--> 00:01:31

are animals or birds or whether they are the environment, everything a Muslim is responsible for everything in his or her environment. Islam came and came for this to give benefit to everyone in the environment. And this is our job as Muslims to ensure that this happens, my brother and sisters

00:01:33--> 00:01:34

as far as the

00:01:35--> 00:02:25

issue of therefore Amazon comes because Amazon frees us up Ramadan frees us from our normal responsibilities, you know where we are, where we are engaged in our businesses and work and so on so forth. And it gives us free time. You know, interestingly, somebody sent me this little meme on WhatsApp, which says that because all of us all over the world now today we are all locked down in our homes. And we are not allowed to go out of our homes thanks to the Coronavirus. Somebody sent me this little game we said that this is the first level in which we are locked up before the shutdown. shutdown gets locked up on the first or another and we are locked up now in Sharon itself long

00:02:25--> 00:02:47

before two weeks before on. So I said that this is an indication of what we have become. May Allah protect us from ourselves? I think some of us can give shaitan some lessons on insight is you know there are people in the world who can teach us a thing or two. May Allah protect us from them and

00:02:48--> 00:02:49

protect us from ourselves.

00:02:51--> 00:03:26

So therefore, let us use this time that we have in this lockdown and also in Ramadan. To reflect and to think of our situation as human beings, our lives and our connection with Allah subhanaw taala because our time is going to come without a doubt when we will be faced and we will be standing face to face with Allah Serrano's, Allah Allah Allah Allah who will be will be presented to him and we will have to answer for what we did and what we chose not to do.

00:03:28--> 00:03:54

Now in the issue of taco therefore, it comes where taco is the result or the meaning or taco is the name given to complete and total trust in Allah subhanaw taala alone, without partners without associates without anything because Allah has no partners, Allah has no associates. So when we say a trust Allah alone is because he is alone. for them.

00:03:55--> 00:04:02

I have to summer the Larry lamb yearly dual mula milania, coloca. forehead, this is the shadow of Allah subhanaw taala delusional.

00:04:03--> 00:04:39

There are many instances of tawakkol the finest of them, of course, is the zero from sola, sola, sola, where there is a wrestler had this habit he would have to settle further unfinished, he would turn around, he would sit and he would talk to his Sahaba he would ask them, if anyone had seen a dream, he would interpret the dream. If there is anyone that is a dream, he would give them some advice and so on. And then when he would go home and he would ask, Is there anything in the house to eat? And if his wife said,

00:04:41--> 00:04:46

yes, there is and she gave him he would eat? And if there wasn't, then he would say, Okay, today I'm fasting.

00:04:47--> 00:05:00

Today, I'm fasting. This was this is his tendency. I mean, he never complained about anything. He never complained about food and never complained about. Not about not having food. This was his divisi he

00:05:00--> 00:05:16

Asked Jimmy Samms came to me once and he said to him he or Allah says that if you want Allah subhanaw taala will make these mountains of the hammer into gold and they will walk with you where do you go, these were mountains will go with you,

00:05:18--> 00:06:09

I have no need for this, I asked Allah subhanaw taala to give me that I can be thankful to him and to allow me to fast and to allow me to you know, to withhold from me so that I can have some of this is the this is the dawn so so how beautiful is this talk also in his in his whole life. We see a solar solar system in every way, having takahama Trust only and only on Allah subhanaw taala not on material, not on anything. The finest example of that is wow Allah, He is dying in the last moments of his life. He is a he comes, he loses consciousness. And then he regains consciousness. As Ilana said, I there was a bowl of water, I would put my hand in the water, and then I would, you know, be

00:06:10--> 00:06:28

blessed face with that. And he would come, he would regained consciousness. And when he was conscious, he asked, I shall have irana. He said, Is there anything in the house? Do you have any money? Or do you have any any possessions in the house? I said, I had some, yes, he had,

00:06:29--> 00:06:35

you know, some money? Yes, yes, he had some couple of dinner or something. So Sam said, give it away?

00:06:36--> 00:06:50

Give it away in charity. Imagine he's dying his wife has. He's asking do you have anything else? She says, I have only this? And he doesn't say oh my god, you know, I'm living like this, do you have nothing? No, even that is give it away.

00:06:52--> 00:07:00

Now imagine her situation, the most beloved person to her is leaving, and he's in her house, he his head is in her lap.

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

So

00:07:04--> 00:07:20

then he loses constantly come back to come come back to consciousness. And he says, I shall have you given that in charity, she also I will give it he says, Bring it here. So she brings the money, he puts it in his hand he says I shall do you want me to meet my rub like this?

00:07:22--> 00:07:26

Do you want me to meet my rub like this with that money in his imagine?

00:07:28--> 00:07:31

Why do you think that is there it is that money parameter or something?

00:07:32--> 00:07:52

Is it better to leave a legacy for your for your inheritance for your for your heirs, if it was bribed to have wealth, if it was privated for us to leave a legacy then we would we would not have the laws of inheritance Islam as the most detailed laws of inheritance of any religion.

00:07:54--> 00:07:57

And there is complete justice which is which is done in the laws of inheritance.

00:08:00--> 00:08:21

It's not private, we're talking about something more than what is prescribed by the law. We're talking about people who had such complete total faith and trust in Allah subhanaw taala that they saw they saw their wealth, not in terms of what was in their hand, but in terms of what they had invested with Allah subhanaw taala

00:08:22--> 00:08:23

their wealth was what was

00:08:25--> 00:08:36

not their wealth was not their houses in their homes and their and their and their money and their real estate and their bank account. their wealth was what they had sent before them to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

And that's said the viners example of that is a sort of

00:08:44--> 00:09:12

I don't do the I told you a part of the story of hottie whereas hakimullah Sam and his little daughter in the in the last episode, but let me tell you the story again, the full story. In this episode for those of you who did not see the last episode, however, Abdullah Ali was a great scholar of Islam, and he lived in the time of have now been humbled to have to learn so hard there are some that isn't that time of the Basilica.

00:09:14--> 00:09:31

He was known as well as an RA he was known for tawakkol he was known for as a motor vehicle. As somebody who always trusted a lot smarter. He had a basic principle in life used to say anything that is either zero, which is more than what is needed. He always gave it away to charity.

00:09:32--> 00:09:42

Right. So he obviously didn't have many possessions and he didn't have wealth and so on. So now one time it was our artillery, wanted to go for Hajj.

00:09:43--> 00:09:47

I had this very deep need and desire to watch.

00:09:48--> 00:10:00

But when he did his finances when he when he collected his money and so on and so forth, he realized that he had money to either he had just enough money to pay for the for

00:10:00--> 00:10:06

fair to go along with the caravan fudge. He didn't have money to leave back for his family.

00:10:08--> 00:10:26

So he went Mashallah with his family he called his wife and his children and he asked him, he said, You know, this is my situation, I really want to go for Hajj. But I do not have in money to live back here with you. What do you advise? His wife said, don't go. She said, Don't worry if you don't have money, don't go when you have the money will go

00:10:28--> 00:10:33

the other way around. He could he could argue with that. So he he kept silent.

00:10:34--> 00:10:55

But his heart was very heavy. He was very very sad. That one day he was so sad because all the caravans that God was one caravan left. He was so sad that he was weeping his tears are flowing down is that his cheeks? His little daughter happened to come into the room she saw him she said What happened to my father? Why are you crying?

00:10:56--> 00:10:58

How they want us around tonight is it

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

What should I do because I am in this situation.

00:11:02--> 00:11:07

I don't have enough money to leave behind for you all, but I really want to go for Hajj. So I'm crying.

00:11:09--> 00:11:14

She said Tim Don't worry go. Allah subhanaw taala will take care of us. You will.

00:11:15--> 00:11:19

I will convince my mother. She can is the mother the mother

00:11:20--> 00:11:39

left. You don't want to give it to the caravan head and he left. Now as they were going along a couple of days later, this caravan leader he got bitten by a scorpion. You know the desert there are scorpions in the night. He got bitten by a scorpion. And he was in

00:11:40--> 00:11:46

terrible pain he was you know, he was he was literally sort of tortured with this pain.

00:11:47--> 00:11:49

How the virus around delay

00:11:52--> 00:11:54

prayed for him. He may draw for him.

00:11:55--> 00:11:58

And this man was cured. His pain disappeared.

00:11:59--> 00:12:25

Then I was so impressed. He was so happy he was so grateful that he said to Allah subhanaw taala Elisa Look, I here is the one you give me for this for this fair, take it back. You are my guest and all your expenses everything from the time you go for that from now till the time you come back home. These are my responsibility to I will take care of everything you are my guest just you know, relax

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

00:12:29--> 00:12:34

He made why and he said you have taken care of me. Please take care of my family.

00:12:36--> 00:12:47

Now back home, things are getting tough money they didn't have much money anyway that money ran out. Now they're getting problems about getting food and so on and so forth.

00:12:48--> 00:12:56

Well as one's wife is very upset because obviously you know there's no food in the house and they're having difficulties. This little girl however is laughing.

00:12:58--> 00:13:14

So she said what kind of what's wrong with you? How do you laugh here is we are in difficulty of others gone away. There's no one to earn for us. And you know as the only source of income was your father and his and his work and that is that is gone and now you are loving.

00:13:16--> 00:13:18

The doctor surgeon who has left

00:13:26--> 00:13:33

The mother said the Moto has left the consumer to the girl said Why are you crying? Why are you upset?

00:13:35--> 00:13:39

The logic is still there. The provider is still there. And is not going anywhere.

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

So why are you worried?

00:13:43--> 00:13:50

About what what is this worry? Why Why? Allah subhanaw taala closes one door to open another door.

00:13:51--> 00:13:58

To say LS matter Phil is covered with no he used to say that if you go in supposing he says your friend gave a

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

a general you know gentlemen invitation to everyone like an open house you know come and eat.

00:14:08--> 00:14:10

In our country we had this we called data.

00:14:11--> 00:14:12

So

00:14:13--> 00:14:44

And you have the sofa, the hand and anyone who comes can come and sit and eat and go now my friends My mission is to say that supposing you go into this you go and this is your friend was called without them so you go there you don't meet your friend you know you just go there you're sitting on this sofa. There is a whole lot of you know plates and so on. Obviously this is maybe it's catered to the plates have been brought by the catering company in our plates. He says then suddenly a friend comes out and he sees you

00:14:46--> 00:14:49

and he holds you by his hand and says Get up.

00:14:50--> 00:14:50

Get up.

00:14:52--> 00:14:55

Now you are hungry. You sat down here to eat

00:14:58--> 00:15:00

and just when you are about to

00:15:00--> 00:15:04

Just when the food is coming, your friend comes and he says come get up.

00:15:05--> 00:15:07

He says What do you feel?

00:15:08--> 00:15:35

Or will you say well, I landed in LA my friend found me now he's telling me Get up beans, what is this is for the common people, this is not for you, you come, I will take you now inside the house and you are going to get food, different food, you are going to get far superior food, because you are my friend. You're not the ordinary person. You're not the common person.

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

What is the value of I'll

00:15:43--> 00:15:44

ask myself this question.

00:15:45--> 00:15:48

What is the value of life?

00:15:51--> 00:15:55

If I'm living I'm working, I have a job I have a business.

00:15:57--> 00:15:58

I'm getting some food.

00:16:00--> 00:16:01

And then

00:16:02--> 00:16:03

that stops

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

my while he comes and says come

00:16:11--> 00:16:12

not for you

00:16:13--> 00:16:14

shutting the door

00:16:16--> 00:16:17

to a mechanic.

00:16:20--> 00:16:21

You want me to feel that I will start

00:16:24--> 00:16:25

in the delay.

00:16:27--> 00:16:31

Why does everybody remember I did not say I am and as well you know.

00:16:34--> 00:16:35

Why? Because Allah,

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

Allah, Allah Allah Allah.

00:16:41--> 00:16:43

Allah is the only of the people Aviva.

00:16:48--> 00:16:55

So if I have this faith in my friend, my human friend, that I am sitting on a common sofa, common

00:16:57--> 00:17:04

common table with everybody. And my friend comes and says, Come not here. Get up from here.

00:17:06--> 00:17:09

I don't feel panicked. I don't feel sad. I feel happy.

00:17:11--> 00:17:14

And when my Rob jalaja Lalu tells me get off from here.

00:17:16--> 00:17:22

This was your business. I shut it. This was your salary. I stopped it. You want me to feel panicked?

00:17:25--> 00:17:29

Hey, jolanda Rila Alhamdulillah.

00:17:32--> 00:17:33

Now he will feed me.

00:17:37--> 00:17:40

So this girl says who left?

00:17:41--> 00:17:45

The Raja still there. You are panicking for what?

00:17:48--> 00:17:49

That's why I'm laughing.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

Then this little girl, she went inside into her room. She raised her hands.

00:17:59--> 00:18:07

And she said Oh Allah coloca luck. She said Your word is true. Under the whole you said

00:18:09--> 00:18:13

tequila. Maharajah Zuko when

00:18:18--> 00:18:25

you said that the one who has taqwa that you will extract him from his difficulties.

00:18:28--> 00:18:31

And you will provide from sources that he could not imagine.

00:18:34--> 00:18:45

And for the one who has thought call on you, you will be sufficient for him. She is no alarm My father has talked to my father relies on you.

00:18:47--> 00:18:49

For Allah help us provide for us.

00:18:52--> 00:18:56

There was a knock on the door. girl had not finished of the knock on the door.

00:18:57--> 00:19:05

They were there. And they see that it is the the military commanders the ADC of the governor of the province.

00:19:07--> 00:19:10

He's just to them. The governor is passing by here.

00:19:11--> 00:19:14

We have run out of water Do you have some water for the governor?

00:19:16--> 00:19:26

So they do lots of water they you know, they decorated the tray and so on and a nice jar, divert water and they give

00:19:29--> 00:19:42

the ADC to the to the to the water to the governor. The governor drank the water. Allah subhanaw taala put Baraka in this water. That water was so sweet was so beautiful. The governor was so happy, just plain water. He's drinking his water. He was so happy.

00:19:44--> 00:19:45

He said to the way did you get the water?

00:19:48--> 00:19:54

So the ADC says to him, he says Your Honor, it is from that house over there? Whose house is that?

00:19:55--> 00:19:57

He said that is the house of hottie Manasa.

00:19:58--> 00:20:00

So governance is the

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

scholar had

00:20:02--> 00:20:06

said yes the same one. So governor says I would like to meet him, I want to thank him.

00:20:08--> 00:20:09

So they said to him,

00:20:11--> 00:20:11

he is not here.

00:20:13--> 00:20:18

The governor says he has gone for Hajj, Shangri La, then his family is my responsibility.

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

If you had gone for us, this family is my responsibility.

00:20:27--> 00:20:30

And then, you know, they used to wear these,

00:20:31--> 00:20:48

these these belts, money belts, to the governor took off his money bit. And Allah knows how much gold he had in it. And the belt itself is, you know, very valuable. He took off his belt and he threw it over the wall of the house.

00:20:50--> 00:20:53

So that his belt come sailing out over the wall

00:20:54--> 00:20:56

and falls on the floor and gold coins.

00:20:58--> 00:21:07

And that is not enough. The governor then says to his people, are you gonna use our entourage of all his ministers and you know, military generals and gardeners Ooh. He says to them,

00:21:08--> 00:21:10

If you love me, do what I have done.

00:21:13--> 00:21:19

So now God knows how many people there were. There are belts and moneybags flying over that wall.

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

The whole house the courtyard is now littered with God.

00:21:28--> 00:21:53

They say that later on. One of the big merchants of this of the city. He came and he requested for the belt of that Governor and he bought that belt. He gave a huge amount of money for that belt. He said I that belt I want because it has sentimental value for me. And he gave a huge amount of money for the bag, not for the contents, the contents they got but just a belt alone, he took it. Now whole places.

00:21:55--> 00:22:06

Obviously everyone is very happy. The mother is very happy. She sees all this gold that they do not only have enough to sustain them until Allah subhanaw taala comes back but they have enough for the rest of their lives.

00:22:08--> 00:22:10

Then she notices this little girl is crying.

00:22:12--> 00:22:23

She's weeping. So the mother says to her What a strange girl you are when we were starving, you are laughing now and we have enough money for the rest of our lives. You are crying? Why are you crying?

00:22:27--> 00:22:40

The girl just took all this, you see is the result of one slave, looking at us with mercy. One slave, he says he says that government is a slave. What can you do?

00:22:41--> 00:22:44

He could not even provide water for himself. We had to ask for water.

00:22:47--> 00:22:48

All that gold he could drink.

00:22:51--> 00:22:54

She said that man who was a slave of Allah.

00:22:55--> 00:23:05

One slave looks at us with mercy one time and this is the result. She said what if our hammer Rahimi looks at us with mercy?

00:23:07--> 00:23:10

What if my rock geladeira looks at me with mercy?

00:23:11--> 00:23:14

What will be the result of that? So that's why I'm crying

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

that we are impressed with this. Whereas we should be thinking about Allah subhanaw taala

00:23:23--> 00:23:25

now what about myself and you

00:23:27--> 00:23:30

never ever lose focus from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:23:32--> 00:23:36

Always, always, always have your sight on Allah and Allah alone.

00:23:38--> 00:23:48

Like looking into a halogen lamp, I'm not telling you to do that. But I'm saying if you look at a lamp, and you've turned from there, your eyes are blinded. All you can see is white, you see the light.

00:23:49--> 00:23:56

You don't see anything else, you only see the light, because you looked into the light and the light now has completely filled your vision.

00:23:58--> 00:24:05

Any way you turn, you only see the light that has been like that, because we have seen the light. You've seen the light of the hotel.

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

We have seen the light of La ilaha illAllah

00:24:10--> 00:24:17

let us have tawakkol let us have complete and total faith and belief and of strength in the loss of an altar.

00:24:18--> 00:24:26

And let us ensure that our lives are full of harmony and contentment and free from all stress or depression.

00:24:28--> 00:24:32

Let me say this draw for sustenance to set an

00:24:34--> 00:24:35

alarm as

00:24:37--> 00:24:42

well as the need for the Garmin cvac along with Vinny we can

refer to the Garmin civic allometry NaVi halali can be

00:24:49--> 00:24:50

referred to the command

00:24:53--> 00:24:53
