salam, just remember
Allah Subhan how that
gave us the example like give us
a picture of success, who are the rightly guided people who are the people of gender who are the people who will receive the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala
and the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala and those monitor mentioned these specifically
and Jeff recited just now, they had also Rosa Walker in the first paragraph
where I'm not one of those that Wallah number one Nikon Bucha Umino Sophie will jewelry one of consuming, invaluable unforseeable Samara overshare is sabe Allah Xena either sabato masivo tune Carlu in Adela, he or in Isley Raggio Willa Iike Ali him Salah to mirror him Rama what will go home will moto
ALLAH SubhanA Genesis that truly we will test you will learn about the lamb of the kids the land of emphasis. We're the number one ago
this word Bala
test is also used as
in the old days when they used to test gold for purity to take you know something to somebody to assess the purity of some monument they used to have
an abrasive like a file and they would rub it on it and they would take that verifying
you know these shavings of that word finally and then they will test it so this test is by some kind of abrasion, some kind of rubbing compared which is obviously in that common weapon for others it truly will just stick
with what Allah did not say we'll just do with wealth will test you with political power will test you with how Colma was sold. No he didn't say we'll test you with all these hola several gesture when we say middle half with fear.
While jaw with hunger, waxing middle and wild with causing loss in your wealth. While I'm fussy with Samara and loss in yourself meaning maybe accidents maybe injuries, maybe illnesses. What Samara in your fruit which means your children, your family.
Because in another place in the Quran, Allah subhanaw taala said both plenty and scarcity are tests. So well these are tests a lot better than I could have said we will test you with wealth and with power and authority and glory and gold and No, unless we will test you and specifically ALLAH mentioned these things, which is
fear half with a limp, no lack of security I am not even sure if I will be alive or dead if I'm not sure if somebody will attack me I'm not sure what we'll have on fear and then with hunger, let scarcity of food and water and medical supplies and so on. And then with loss specific loss, business collapses, shop burned down loss of job you get you get laid off right and then illness and also loss in the family which could be illness which could be That's right Allah said we will test especially at we will tell Allah Allah not saying this we happen to know will definitely will happen to you. And then Allah says over share is Savi return law says the Allah subhanaw taala is Bashara
Allah subhanaw taala. The good news
is for the people who have sub and who are those people Allah mentioned? Who are those people under Xena either ASABE or Tomasi. Batoon Carlu inocula Huey Nyla here Ha Joon these are the people who when they are tested when this will see by when this difficulty comes upon them. They say we are from Allah and to Allah is our
specific definition of who is who the Sabbath is the person who's out.
And then Allah subhanho wa Taala ICA I lay him they are the people on whom
we like Allah him. Salawat mera beam.
Allah Sen Salam on these people, Allah subhanaw taala blesses these people on them is blessing and salam.
Ahlawat Minella Hadar Allah and Rama of Allah and then Allah gives them this certification. This statement is guarantee who like our whole motto Don't Allah say they are the people who are rightly guided.
So, if you are rightly guided inshallah agenda is yours and this rightly guided thing is not somebody else saying it Allah subhanaw taala is saying Allah is bothering who like whom will Matanga Allah Who Alamo me that is sudo Eliana mafia Colombina. So Allah knows, so Allah is saying they are directly guy.
The reason I'm saying this is because the continuation of what we mentioned, what we've been talking about for the last couple of days, which is how the, how Islam changes our perspective and our our understanding of what is success, what is failure, what is difficulty, what is ease and so on and so on. And this is a very clear indication of Allah subhanaw taala is describing for us conditions, which in the world, the context or negative,
Or like it negative, somebody who has no security is somebody who is hungry, somebody who's starving somebody who's got no food, no water, no shelter, no, no access to hospitals, and so on and so forth. Right? Like what is happening because our data is not the only places this this stuff happens all over the place. So where Allah says, these are all situations, illness, and so on, these are all situation which from a worldly context are negative, right?
They are negative. I mean, nobody will say, Oh, congratulations, your business has burned down, or Congratulations, your house collapsed.
If that thing happened, the use of I got returned is such a big misfortune with this poor man. Look at him. So much of bad luck is happening to him. There is normally people who say nobody will congratulate you because you are sick. Oh, wonderful, fantastic. You know, you're sick, no.
But Allah subhanaw taala is saying two things. Firstly, this is not an accident. This didn't just happen.
Allah sent it.
And Allah is saying, I'm not sending it because you did something wrong. Right, this is not proper, this is not punishment, there is a difference between this and actual punishment.
This is not perfect. This is
Allah subhanaw taala his way of raising the the Rajat of people he loves.
Of course, having said that, we ask Allah to save us from this, we ask Allah Subhan Allah to forgive us without the tests, because we don't ask for tests. But when the test comes, if it comes, then we ask Allah for higher mafia, and we ask a lot of our data to give us what he promised to give us. So Allah is saying this test is actually a benefit for you. It's not a it's not a misfortune. So look at it from that perspective.
That is why we sell our services Al hamdu lillahi, Allah kuliah
all praise for Allah subhanaw taala in every condition.
So whether condition is from a worldly angle, good or bad.
If you look at also in the Quran, Allah Kareem in the stories of the available Salam, there are many instances where the NABI was in a situation, which from a worldly angle can only be described as negative.
Usable is one of the classic stories of dollars worth revealed also, with this, usually Sarah, first of all, is all brothers. They try to kill him. They throw him into a well,
Howard must've made me maybe he was, you know, five, six years old or something along that Swalwell. So inside the well.
Then he is taken out of the well, that looks like okay, as somebody's rescuing him, but no, that is worse because now he's taken out of the world and he sold as a slave.
What is good about that?
And then he is tempted when he grows up when he is tempted to disobey Allah, but when he resist the temptation, he does not do what the woman wants him to do. He is put in prison. He is jailed for doing something good. He didn't do any harm. He didn't commit any crime. He's jailed for that. And it is several years of procedures not as you know, like to over the weekend was, you know, this is many years. He's in jail for many years. All negative, negative, negative and each one seems to be worse.
Liberalism thrown into the fire
for what was going
Same thing, entire view stored is abused is insulted once you know
you know how he is seriously injured,
negative after but each one of those
is positive each one of those is something which is beneficial when the lighter. So I don't I remind myself when you when we look at what is happening in the world today, by all means we should pray for those people we should support them we should, in whichever way we cannot hamdulillah to the extent possible, but never lose hope.
Never lose hope and never feel oh my god, nothing is there we are losing and they're not losing. This Allah promised and Allah says this is success because these are the people that if you see the stories, what are they saying? They say Alhamdulillah in the middle of all that is happening to them they say Alhamdulillah this is a sign of success. The people who died Shaheed insha Allah for us obedient, the people who survived Allah himself over to Mira beam.
So we ask Allah subhana wa jal on who to save us from all tests. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to protect us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to help us in ways that we cannot imagine. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah replete with us, and never to be displeased or some other horror anime very widely used
