after praising Allah azza wa jal and testifying that none is worthy of our worship and our devotion, and our unconditional love and obedience but him so panda who was to Allah and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was His Prophet and his servant and the best of his messengers. And after reminding myself and you with the telco of Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah Allah to be conscious and do default to Allah at all times Cognizant, in public and in private of your Lord than your maker in your master so kinda hola to Allah.

00:01:27--> 00:01:33

After welcoming my brothers and sisters to Islam, to the house of Allah azza wa jal

00:01:35--> 00:02:19

Allah azza wa jal says in Surah Juno's in and levena la generika Anna, those people who are not hopeful their ultimate hope is not in encountering Allah in meeting of what I'll do been highlighted dounia and these people who are content with the life of this world, what am I no beha and they are at ease with this world they have their guard down towards it. When Lavina whom it Nava de Lune and those who are heedless of our silence hula it came at well who narrow beam Ah, can we xe boon. These are the people whose destination will be the Hellfire as adjust through acquittal and repayment for what they used to earn.

00:02:21--> 00:03:12

So what does that mean exactly? To be content, and have your guard down with the life of this world, it means to allow it to interfere with your relationship with Allah azza wa jal, and your bond with him. And this world is more than just what immediately rushes to mind. The most common example the possessions of this world, the objects of this world, the money and property of this world, it is far wider than that. It is every single thing we seek fulfillment through and reclined to, and lean on in this world. That includes our expectations, that includes our other relationships, that includes even our emotions, whatever of that conflicts, clashes with our relationship with Allah is

00:03:12--> 00:03:26

a form of settling for this world that is threatened in this area we began with, even if it be and there's nothing more profound to drive this point home than this, even if it be the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself.

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

When this world was

00:03:31--> 00:04:18

suffering its greatest calamity ever. From the beginning of time till the end of it in this world, the greatest calamity was losing the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. That event was such a shocker for the Sahaba that it threw them in disarray. It almost conflicted with their relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. They could not come to terms with his dying on a Software Center momentarily. And that is why Abu Bakar sodium was acidic. He was the purist in faith, purist in clarity, he stood up and stabilized, anchored everyone he said to them, the famous lines you know, whoever is worshipping Mohammed know that Mohammed has died, and he salatu salam, and whomever

00:04:18--> 00:04:44

worships Allah, they know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is delivering that never dies. He reminded them that they must know as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam earlier said to them before he died, lead to terroni came out rotten nesara do not go overboard in your love for me overboard than your praise for me. Think about that loving him as a part of loving Allah, but should not be at the expense of loving of law.

00:04:46--> 00:05:00

He said do not over praise me aggrandizement the way the Christians did with Jesus, the son of Mary, what did they do with Jesus, the son of Mary. They said he does not die. They said he is immortal. They call out to Him to speak

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

To our love for them, do not do with me what because in that case, it would be settling for this world. It would be settling for our attachments in this world, our emotional fulfillment in this world. It would be a form of being heedless of Allah because it would involve delivering his rights to his creation instead of him so kinda hautala.

00:05:23--> 00:06:09

And you if you understand this concept, you will be granted by that you will have developed one of the greatest keys to understanding why we go through so many difficulties in our life. You will understand why either I have Bella hood after Taylor when I love loves the person he puts him through difficulty. Why? To separate those strings to help him detach from whatever may challenge his attachment to Allah subhanho wa Taala you will understand why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah said that my my servant either about to Sophia whom in any dunya when I contract, I pulled back the one he cherishes most from this world like a loved one. But this could

00:06:09--> 00:06:55

be extended to even beyond people. But whomever I take back what they love so much for Saba, and he exhibits patience. For Lisa who does our needle agenda, he will have no reward awaiting him with me except paradise. Why? Because when you exhibit patience in that moment, your patience means that your attachment to Allah was superior to the attachment to what you just lost. And if you didn't exhibit due patience, that means Allah is still blessing you by showing you showing you a very important disclosure. So you can fix it while there's still a chance to fix it, showing you that your attachment to that which you just lost is a greater priority for you, then your attachment to

00:06:55--> 00:06:56

him, so kinda what.

00:06:59--> 00:07:36

And so he doesn't just show us through our response to difficulties where our primary attachments are, but he actually helps us he doesn't just tell you, hey, figure it out. He helps you through your losses, whatever they may be loss of a loved one loss of finances, loss of emotional satisfaction, love happiness, through your losses. He's helping you sever those strings, untangle those tentacles that are wrapped up on you, that keep you back from him. It's an exercise in detachment, that is a gift from the divine from Allah subhanho wa Taala. You know, many of us when we love our kids,

00:07:37--> 00:07:48

we take things away from them, to make sure they get done what they need to get done. Don't worry, they're not sleeping on time. They're not studying, what do you do? You take something away from them.

00:07:49--> 00:07:54

And what do they do? They cry and they Foster and they yell and they stomp.

00:07:55--> 00:08:35

And then eventually they give up on that and they they get with the program. They go and do what they need to do. And so at that point, when that happens, you give them back what you took from them. You give them their privilege, again, because I'm not doing this to abuse you. I don't you know, relish in harming you. I just want you to know that this privilege is a privilege. It's a luxury, it's extra secondary, so long as you've restructured your priorities. You're fulfilling your duties, sure you can enjoy them. That's out of our love for our children. For sure Allah cannot be compared to his creation. But this shows you not how.

00:08:36--> 00:09:04

You know we are like Allah subhanho wa Taala there's a huge difference. Allah is even more so though, caring for us. So kind of what Allah Allah is more merciful with us than our mother is with her child. Allah subhanho wa Taala takes away things from us when he loves us, so that he can raise us the way we tried to raise our child to deprivation. Allah subhanho wa Taala posed that from you not to harm you.

00:09:05--> 00:09:39

But so that you may be guided along the path where the him Subala Salaam, Allah says in the Quran, he guide them to the pathway of safety. And so try not to be that child that kicks and fusses and expresses their frustration and loss and realize why Allah is gifting you the loss removing certain elements from your life. What is he showing me about my priorities? Where is he trying to accelerate me towards Savannah who without agenda gelato full of holly has our stuff for Holly welcome.

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

Alhamdulillah

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy he married

00:10:02--> 00:10:15

And when you do experience loss, and you realize it is detachment in the making, realize that you are far better off through this aggressive procedure.

00:10:16--> 00:10:19

Because you and I know

00:10:21--> 00:10:51

even for I'm going to use this loosely, US religious people, the people who pray are five and the people that come to the masjid for jumar. Even us, it's not just the person that at a funeral during finals week, they make their I know, even for the person that has a consistent devotion to Allah, your devotion is so much pure. When you're struggling, you know, that you act like that child so much you get fiery when you're stuck.

00:10:52--> 00:10:59

And that when things are going our way, you know, how cold and how lifeless, and how inappropriate your diet is.

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

And you know that when the lights get turned out, out, or the things come crashing down, how passionate and how enthusiastic and how into it, how meaningful your diet and your solar are.

00:11:15--> 00:11:59

And so Allah out of his mercy, though, he doesn't need you, He gives you these chances for you to remember him on a more appropriate level. You know, we find it disgusting, when people only come to us when they need something from us. But Allah knows that we're like that we're just self interested creatures. And so when we need something from him, we rushed back to him. And yet he still accepts it when he doesn't need it. If we are just to give ourselves a chance, just to conclude this hope, but to think about that, think about the function of adversities of hardships of calamity in our life, we will fall in love with a lot of zildjian over and over and over again, that thing he took

00:11:59--> 00:12:31

away from me, he's going to reward me for it. Even though I'm better off without it, he's still going to reward me for it. And then he's going to give me by taking it away from me something far more valuable, something far more reaching, he's going to restore in my life, a better version of my relationship with Him. And then once that's aligned again, recalibrated improved, then he gives me back what I lost. Or he opens up another door for me, another chance, another opportunity that could be equally or even more fulfilling.

00:12:33--> 00:12:47

No, and no matter what he does, I am better off having gone through that than I would have been had he kept those blessings or kept those possessions those attachment to this world to get more and more and more of a grip on me.

00:12:48--> 00:13:29

And so remember this and we know this, but don't limit it to just objects. Don't limit it to just the material possessions of this world. Everything we get attached to know that Allah will give you opportunities to get unplugged from it, be receptive to his messages, be appreciative of his gifts, and know that him taking from you is actually him giving you so much more so kind of what we ask Allah to guide us to be receptive and noticing of his messages. May Allah not make us of the libido and that were mentioned in the chat at the beginning of this multiple. May Allah protect us from sinking into that state where we are content and settle for this world and have our guard down and

00:13:29--> 00:13:55

are so vulnerable to it. May Allah make our strongest connection and our strongest attachment be our hope in Him that will never fail us. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah help us against our impatience, help us against our short sightedness and bring us closer to him with every brand new de la muffuletta our hammer Allahumma Filipino hammer.
