My brothers and sisters,

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

Ibn Khayrnaq al Ahtulari continues

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

and he says, do not weep

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

for

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

something in life

00:00:25 --> 00:00:27

that made your heart weep.

00:00:28 --> 00:00:29

So do not weep from

00:00:31 --> 00:00:33

accidents and loss and

00:00:33 --> 00:00:35

reasons for grief and bereavement

00:00:36 --> 00:00:36

and so on.

00:00:38 --> 00:00:41

Just say, O Allah compensate me with good

00:00:41 --> 00:00:42

in this life and the hereof.

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

Right?

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

Sadness, he says sadness departs with

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

happiness

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

comes with sincere Dua.

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

Allah does not

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

forget the good you do nor does he

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

forget the good you did to others and

00:01:06 --> 00:01:08

the pain you relieve them from

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

nor will you forget the eye which was

00:01:11 --> 00:01:12

about to cry

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

but you made it laugh.

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

Now,

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

if you think about this beautiful advice,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

it's like,

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

yahoovali saraham

00:01:26 --> 00:01:27

when was lost

00:01:28 --> 00:01:30

and his sons informed him that he had

00:01:30 --> 00:01:33

been killed by a wolf, eaten by a

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

wolf.

00:01:34 --> 00:01:36

Imagine how traumatic that would have been to

00:01:36 --> 00:01:37

the father

00:01:37 --> 00:01:39

who loved that son so much that not

00:01:39 --> 00:01:40

only was

00:01:42 --> 00:01:43

he not going to see his son ever

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

again not only was the son dead but

00:01:45 --> 00:01:47

he died in this horrible way.

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

But

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

what was

00:01:49 --> 00:01:51

his response? He said

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

He said, Verily

00:01:56 --> 00:01:57

my sadness

00:01:58 --> 00:01:59

and my tears

00:02:00 --> 00:02:00

are

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

only

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

towards Allah.

00:02:06 --> 00:02:07

I give my sadness

00:02:08 --> 00:02:09

and I weep my tears and

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

I complain only to Allah.

00:02:15 --> 00:02:16

The reason is that when you complain in

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

front of others you demean yourself.

00:02:19 --> 00:02:22

When you complain before Allah SWT you honour

00:02:22 --> 00:02:22

yourself.

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

Hussar al Basir

00:02:27 --> 00:02:29

another one of my most favorite scholars I

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

ask Allah

00:02:30 --> 00:02:31

to cause

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

me to InshaAllah

00:02:33 --> 00:02:34

meet

00:02:35 --> 00:02:35

Hassar

00:02:36 --> 00:02:37

Abbasid

00:02:37 --> 00:02:38

in Jannah Inshallah.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:41

He was absolutely

00:02:42 --> 00:02:43

steeped in wisdom.

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

Steeped in wisdom. So Hassan Masih

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

he

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

was

00:02:49 --> 00:02:51

walking down the road and he saw a

00:02:51 --> 00:02:54

man, He saw 2 people in conversation

00:02:56 --> 00:02:57

and he happened to

00:02:58 --> 00:02:59

over here

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

something

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

and

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

he realized that they were

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

that one man was complaining about his life

00:03:11 --> 00:03:12

to the other

00:03:12 --> 00:03:13

man and Hazemasir

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

says what a strange person you are

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

that you complain about

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

to the one who has no You

00:03:23 --> 00:03:24

complain about

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

to the one who has no rahman.

00:03:28 --> 00:03:29

You're

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

complaining about the most merciful Allah

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

to somebody who is a human being.

00:03:35 --> 00:03:37

What is the comparison between Allah Subhanahu Wa

00:03:37 --> 00:03:39

Ta'ala's mercy and whatever

00:03:40 --> 00:03:43

mercy or pity usually it's pity that people

00:03:43 --> 00:03:44

feel for you if you go and complain

00:03:44 --> 00:03:46

to them. So why do why do you

00:03:46 --> 00:03:47

do that?

00:03:48 --> 00:03:51

Number 2, when you complain about your worries

00:03:53 --> 00:03:54

and your problems

00:03:54 --> 00:03:55

to people,

00:03:56 --> 00:03:58

what can the people do to change that?

00:03:59 --> 00:04:02

People cannot change that, people cannot change your

00:04:02 --> 00:04:04

heart, people cannot take away if you lost

00:04:04 --> 00:04:06

something they can't bring it back for you.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:09

They can't do anything. People are helpless just

00:04:09 --> 00:04:09

like you.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

So you want you are helpless and you

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

want to talk to somebody who's also helpless.

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

What's the make talk to the one who

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

can actually

00:04:16 --> 00:04:18

do something for you, who can actually change

00:04:18 --> 00:04:21

your life, who can actually change your destiny,

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

who can actually change the,

00:04:23 --> 00:04:24

you know, the the

00:04:25 --> 00:04:26

what what you

00:04:26 --> 00:04:28

have who can change that completely.

00:04:29 --> 00:04:30

This is only Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala

00:04:31 --> 00:04:33

and that's why Yaqub ul Iqbal answered I

00:04:33 --> 00:04:35

do not complain to you. I don't cry

00:04:35 --> 00:04:36

before you. I cry

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

before So

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

then he says sadness departs with the sajdah.

00:04:45 --> 00:04:45

I

00:04:46 --> 00:04:48

know all of you have done sujood, we

00:04:48 --> 00:04:49

all alhamdulillah, Allah

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

has made us Muslims so we make sujood.

00:04:53 --> 00:04:55

But just do that sujdah with consciousness. Do

00:04:55 --> 00:04:58

that sujdah with awareness of what does it

00:04:58 --> 00:04:59

do to you. You. Think about that. What

00:04:59 --> 00:05:00

is my sardah

00:05:01 --> 00:05:01

doing for me?

00:05:02 --> 00:05:02

Just

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

the action of putting your head on the

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

ground before Allah

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

is such

00:05:09 --> 00:05:12

a relieving action, such a comforting action

00:05:13 --> 00:05:15

that there is nothing in the world that

00:05:15 --> 00:05:16

compensates

00:05:16 --> 00:05:18

or comes close to

00:05:18 --> 00:05:20

or is like the sajdah that you made

00:05:20 --> 00:05:21

before Allah

00:05:22 --> 00:05:24

That's why sajdah to anyone other than Allah

00:05:24 --> 00:05:24

is haram.

00:05:26 --> 00:05:28

Not to anybody. Not to anything living or

00:05:28 --> 00:05:31

dead. Not to anything animate or inanimate. Sajdah

00:05:31 --> 00:05:33

is only and only to Allah SWT.

00:05:33 --> 00:05:35

We ask Allah to make us among those

00:05:35 --> 00:05:36

who are

00:05:36 --> 00:05:38

always in Sarasota,

00:05:38 --> 00:05:40

physically as well as

00:05:41 --> 00:05:42

psychologically,

00:05:42 --> 00:05:43

mentally,

00:05:45 --> 00:05:47

in every way where we submit completely and

00:05:47 --> 00:05:49

totally to Allah SWT.

00:05:49 --> 00:05:50

And that's why Allah

00:05:54 --> 00:05:55

SWT also told us about

00:05:56 --> 00:05:58

Surjud in the way where he said,

00:05:59 --> 00:06:01

the first thing he said to Musa

00:06:07 --> 00:06:09

He says, Verily I am Allah and there

00:06:09 --> 00:06:11

is no one worthy of worship except me.

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

So establish salah for my worship

00:06:16 --> 00:06:18

to remember me. And what is salah? Salah

00:06:18 --> 00:06:19

is sujood, salah is sujda.

00:06:20 --> 00:06:22

So this is something that is so beautiful.

00:06:23 --> 00:06:24

Get used to that, get

00:06:25 --> 00:06:26

enjoy that, right?

00:06:28 --> 00:06:29

Bow down before Allah

00:06:29 --> 00:06:31

The best time for sudood, especially

00:06:32 --> 00:06:34

when you are in need is tahajul.

00:06:35 --> 00:06:36

So, make tahajjud for 1 yourself.

00:06:37 --> 00:06:39

Make sajdah, make a lot of dua, sincere

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

dua.

00:06:41 --> 00:06:42

And remember that Allah

00:06:43 --> 00:06:45

has an account of everything that we do.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:46

Allah does not

00:06:47 --> 00:06:50

forget anything good that we did, whether it

00:06:50 --> 00:06:52

was for his sake or whether it was

00:06:52 --> 00:06:54

for the sake of other people

00:06:55 --> 00:06:55

and Allah

00:06:56 --> 00:06:59

will reward every single one of those things.

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

There is nothing that Allah will

00:07:02 --> 00:07:04

not reward. So, therefore,

00:07:04 --> 00:07:05

make sujuk

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

and ask Allah

00:07:08 --> 00:07:09

to reward.

00:07:10 --> 00:07:11

Because this is the beauty, this is the

00:07:11 --> 00:07:12

whole beauty of

00:07:15 --> 00:07:18

Islam which puts us directly in touch with

00:07:18 --> 00:07:19

Allah

00:07:20 --> 00:07:22

SWT, from whom nothing is hidden and to

00:07:22 --> 00:07:23

whom is Our return.

00:07:24 --> 00:07:24

So

00:07:25 --> 00:07:26

making

00:07:26 --> 00:07:27

sure that we

00:07:28 --> 00:07:29

make sujood,

00:07:30 --> 00:07:31

starts with,

00:07:32 --> 00:07:33

with our farsalah.

00:07:34 --> 00:07:36

Make sure that we never miss a farsalah.

00:07:36 --> 00:07:38

Make sure you pray the farsalah at its

00:07:38 --> 00:07:40

correct time. Don't delay it. And as far

00:07:40 --> 00:07:42

as possible, pray it in the masjid.

00:07:42 --> 00:07:45

And for the men I am saying, the

00:07:45 --> 00:07:46

women can pray at home.

00:07:49 --> 00:07:49

And

00:07:50 --> 00:07:50

then

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

make tahajjud follow yourself.

00:07:53 --> 00:07:55

Read some Quran every day.

00:07:55 --> 00:07:57

Send salat and salaam on Rasool

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

because one time if we send for every

00:08:02 --> 00:08:05

time that we send durood on Rasoolallahu

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

Rasulullah

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

Allah sends salaam on us 10 times.

00:08:11 --> 00:08:12

Every time we send

00:08:13 --> 00:08:15

salaam once Allah sends

00:08:16 --> 00:08:18

salaam on that person 10 times. Tell me

00:08:18 --> 00:08:20

how can you or I

00:08:20 --> 00:08:22

come to any harm if Allah

00:08:23 --> 00:08:25

is sending his blessing on us?

00:08:25 --> 00:08:27

So increase that blessing

00:08:28 --> 00:08:28

by increasing

00:08:31 --> 00:08:33

the salaam that we send on Rasool

00:08:33 --> 00:08:36

Allah as much as possible, especially on Fridays

00:08:36 --> 00:08:38

but all that every day.

00:08:39 --> 00:08:41

Make it one of the beautiful habits

00:08:42 --> 00:08:43

as part of our dhikr that we send

00:08:43 --> 00:08:45

salaatul salaam al Rasoolallahi

00:08:47 --> 00:08:49

Allah does not forget. Allah does not

00:08:50 --> 00:08:52

forget what you did for him. Allah does

00:08:52 --> 00:08:54

not forget what you did for what you

00:08:54 --> 00:08:56

and I did for other people. So let

00:08:56 --> 00:08:56

us maximise

00:08:57 --> 00:08:58

that.

00:08:59 --> 00:09:00

And finally,

00:09:00 --> 00:09:03

the way to deal with all sadness is

00:09:03 --> 00:09:05

to remember that this will end.

00:09:06 --> 00:09:08

This will end. This sadness will end.

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

Just as happiness ends, but sadness will end.

00:09:12 --> 00:09:13

It's never forever.

00:09:14 --> 00:09:15

One day we go to Allah

00:09:16 --> 00:09:18

and what comes thereafter

00:09:19 --> 00:09:22

never ends. So there's 2 very important things.

00:09:22 --> 00:09:24

1 is that this will end and the

00:09:24 --> 00:09:26

second one is that will never end. And

00:09:26 --> 00:09:30

that's why it's so critical and so important

00:09:30 --> 00:09:32

to make sure that we don't spoil

00:09:33 --> 00:09:34

tomorrow for the sake of today

00:09:35 --> 00:09:39

by taking shortcuts, by doing wrong things, by,

00:09:39 --> 00:09:41

by oppressing others, by,

00:09:42 --> 00:09:45

by denying people their rights and so on.

00:09:45 --> 00:09:47

Let us not put ourselves in a situation

00:09:48 --> 00:09:49

where our actions

00:09:49 --> 00:09:50

today

00:09:51 --> 00:09:53

become a liability for us tomorrow.

00:09:54 --> 00:09:55

Do not let today's

00:09:57 --> 00:10:00

actions spoil the reward we will receive from

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

Allah

00:10:01 --> 00:10:01

tomorrow.

00:10:02 --> 00:10:04

That is the most important thing. So, this

00:10:04 --> 00:10:05

whole faith

00:10:06 --> 00:10:08

in the akhira, our faith in

00:10:08 --> 00:10:11

life after death, our faith in the ghayb

00:10:11 --> 00:10:13

is a huge comfort for us in this

00:10:13 --> 00:10:14

dunya.

00:10:14 --> 00:10:15

It

00:10:16 --> 00:10:20

is a shield for us from all sin.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:23

It holds us in check

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

from

00:10:25 --> 00:10:27

carrying out excesses,

00:10:28 --> 00:10:29

whether its in happiness or otherwise,

00:10:30 --> 00:10:31

and it is also

00:10:32 --> 00:10:35

a comfort for us in terms of stress

00:10:35 --> 00:10:37

and difficulty. We ask Allah

00:10:38 --> 00:10:39

to increase our

00:10:39 --> 00:10:41

faith and belief in the akhirah

00:10:42 --> 00:10:43

and to make it ever stronger,

00:10:44 --> 00:10:44

and we ask

00:10:45 --> 00:10:46

Allah to be pleased and never to be

00:10:46 --> 00:10:47

displeased with us.
