a status and we find ourselves in a very specialist state there are many benefits to liquor, we've spoken about victory in the past, and we will continue to talk about it because the entire existence of a believer revolves around this, the crolla the remembrance of Allah.
But today I just want to focus on one very special state.
That when you remember Allah when you mentioned Allah when he talks about Allah when you come to celebrate the remembrance of Allah when you engage in any act of worship, for the remembrance of Allah for the sake of Allah, for the love of Allah, however you want to put it, whenever you feel the presence of Allah subhana wa to Allah and you're thinking about Allah azza wa jal, there is something that you are guaranteed right away.
Even if by even a Hema, who Allah says that if you get nothing out of vicar, vicar again is the remembrance of Allah. The mention of Allah subhanaw taala. If you get nothing out of vicar, except this, that would have been enough of an honor.

what is it that you get out of the out of remembrance of Allah subhanaw taala what is it that we're seeking here?
It is something that is known as Maria to Allah.
To be with Allah,
or for Allah to be with you.
Maria to Allah,
that you are guaranteed
to be in the presence of Allah, and Allah will be there with you.
That Allah azza wa jal is in your company
with his guidance, with his mercy,
with his protection
for those of us who feel so lonely, and there are many of us out there.
Loneliness is one of the
emotional states for many people, many people
Even some of those people who seem to be who seemed to have so many people around them very often feel lonely.
As a matter of fact, I want to ask someone, what is the opposite of loneliness? What's that feeling?
Right? What do we call that feeling when you don't feel lonely, and no one was able to name it for me.
Maybe someone in this congregation might be able to, but everyone knows what loneliness is
and what it feels like.
And one of the ways you can actually get rid of that feeling
and experience something that is so fulfilling, so empowering.
That you wouldn't need anything else with it
is to feel the presence of Allah subhanaw taala.
Maria to Allah.
And where did we get this from the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam says, in a hadith I could see in this holy hadith, where he attributes the statements to Allah, the Prophet, peace be upon him told us, that Allah the Almighty,
our Lord, and our Creator said,
in a hadith that I shared the first portion of it this morning after fajr, and are in the one the app dB, I am as my servant thinks of me.
You think of Allah Subhana Allah as the greatest Allah Subhana Allah is the Greatest, you think Allah subhanaw taala to be they're just, you know, going after you or wanting to destroy you or torture you.
The process I mean, this hadith is reminding us that Allah wants us to perceive him, and think of him and relate to him subhanaw taala in a positive way.
Right. Think of Allah as a loving Lord Allah subhanaw taala will be that loving Lord that you need to be, you need him to be subhanaw taala and one year appdb. Then Allah subhanaw taala says, Well, no matter who either the colony and I am with him or her, when they mentioned me, all you have to do,
to be in the presence of Allah.
And to earn Allah subhanaw taala his company, is to think positively of Allah, and mention his name and Allah subhanaw taala will be there for you.
Allah will be there for you.
Well, no matter who you are currently, and it's not my words, I'm not speaking these words. These are the words of the Prophet sallallahu it was send them in to get tributes these words to Allah Subhana Allah the Almighty. And Allah subhanaw taala further says, They in the Quran enough, see the comfortable enough, see, if he mentions me remembers me within himself. You think of Allah subhanaw taala you remember Allah.
Right? Remember how great Allah subhanaw taala is, you're so thankful for his blessings. You're not giving up.
Even if you're in distress, you know that no one there's no there is no state of distress. There is no hardship greater than the Mercy of Allah subhanaw taala there is nothing that Allah subhanaw taala cannot resolve for you.
So you think of Allah subhanho wa Taala
with a positive attitude, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, No, that at that moment, actually even before that moment that Allah subhanaw taala is thinking about you. What an honor
that you're actually mentioning Allah you're thinking about Allah subhanaw taala and you're saying to yourself, Oh Allah, I love you. Well, Allah Thank you.
And Allah subhanaw taala you know that at that moment, Allah subhanaw taala is thinking about you.
Allah is mentioning you. Allah is remembering you. He is in your prayers, you are in His presence, and he is with you.
He's in your company Subhana wa Tada Allah, the Almighty, the Lord of the world and if you have Allah azza wa jal with you,
you don't need anything else.
Then Allah says, however, if you choose to, here's an upgrade. Here's an upgrade. For those who are looking for upgrades. Here's another perk.
Here's another privilege. Allah says, way that the colony female in the come to houfy manner in hiraman
If you choose to remember Allah
and mentioned him in a gathering,
right? You're talking to people, could be family, could be friends, could be colleagues, you're telling people about Allah subhanaw taala how you feel about Allah azza wa jal positive things
you're reminding people of Allah subhanaw taala.
Then Allah subhanaw taala says, I will mention you in a gathering better than that, that you mentioned me.
Right? Allah subhanaw taala. The Prophet told us In another Hadith that whenever a group of people glue with a group of believers sit together and they talk about Allah azza wa jal, and they reflect and ponder upon the blessings of Allah, Allah subhana wa, tada actually brings His angels, and Allah azza wa jal starts, for lack of a better term, to brag about those individuals. Look at my servants, they're talking about me, they gathered, they abandon everything, they left everything behind, and they came to celebrate my mercy, and talk about me and hear words
that will remind them of me, bring them closer to me, make them love me more, and so on and so forth.
There left everything behind. And why am I saying this? I'm saying this for us to realize how special this gathering in this moment in this opportunity is.
I'm saying this, that we are out of that
robotic state, where we do things on a regular basis, just because it's part of our weekly habit.
And realize the greatness of what we're doing.
And what we're coming here for.
And thus, come here with a mindset of someone that wants to get something out of this.
Because if I was to tell you that you're in the presence of the most powerful
human being, or the richest person,
you would say, okay, how can I benefit out of this opportunity? How can I maximize? Right? What can I do?
You're not going to just be sitting there distracted with thoughts that have nothing to do with that particular opportunity. You're not going to be sitting there just waiting for that gathering, or for that
act, or for that experience or activity to end.
You're going to be sitting there thinking, What can I say? What can I do to get the attention of this person?
How can I benefit from this experience or from this opportunity?
If you're if you're if you're with the richest person, I'm not going to mention names because you know, none of them are worthy.
Right? But if you're with the richest person, and you know that that person is very benevolent, that person would do anything for you. I mean, we're gonna be looking for opportunities to connect.
Alright, I want this, I want that you're not going to be sitting there talking about ridiculous things, or trivial matters.
You're not going to be sitting there asking for peanuts.
So imagine you're in the Presence of Allah subhanho wa taala, the Lord of the world, whose treasures are endless.
That's how we like the Karela the prophesy, Selim says that there is a moment on this day. And it could very well be during this gathering, where if you were to ask anything of Him, He will grant it.
But it won't happen if the heart is absence, and if the mind is not present.
There has to be a connection. And Allah azza wa jal knows, because sometimes some people say, Well, I am in a gathering and remembering Allah subhanaw taala but your heart is not remembering Allah remember that to begin with your heart has to remember and mention Allah Subhana Allah and connect in order for the poor, whatever the tongue is saying, or whatever the limps are doing in order for them to count.
And that will only happen if we realize what we're doing here on a weekly basis and what it is that we're actually pursuing.
Then further Allah Subhana Allah says,
Wayne Takara baleia she runs up to La he they are on.
If you get closer if you seek to get closer to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
Even if his few inches
Allah Subhana Allah Allah will get closer to you by many faults. So Allah subhanaw taala says, if you try to get closer to Allah Subhana Allah by handspun
then Allah subhanaw taala
will get closer to you by a yard
when Takara baleia there are anti corrupt with a ban every time he tried to do something you want to get closer to Allah Subhana Allah Allah Allah azza wa jal will multiply it in will get closer to you
A tiny MCE at a two who Hawala and if he comes to me walking, slow pace, then I come to him running in a fast pace comes to your aid.
It is said
for those who are attending our weekly weekly meeting we were talking about when I am with Rebecca Allahu Allah azza wa jal facilitates, you know, sometimes a person might say, Well, I've been praying, I've been asking Allah subhanaw taala for different things. And I don't know I'm not realizing them. Subhan Allah,
remember that Allah subhanaw taala when He delivers his gifts to you, very often they come through different means.
We just don't make the connection. We don't make that association.
And we don't have to.
We don't have to
any if someone if someone if one of us orders something, or if you're expecting a gift from someone, and you're expecting a you're checking your mail every day, right? Thinking that you're going to and then all of a sudden UPS delivers it, you're like, Well, I didn't expect it to come through UPS. You don't get to choose the carrier.
You're not gonna say that oh, I'm not gonna expect because I expected I worked for FedEx. So you know ups I can't accept it. Of course you're gonna take if you take it, you're gonna sign for it. So gift.
It's not how you want it. Allah azza wa jal in the Quran tell us where you're coming. Hi. Juliet tested in ways that you do not perceive. It doesn't have to be your way. It's going to be according to his terms.
And it's going to be his way subhanho wa taala. You may realize it you may not realize it.
But nothing that you ask Allah Subhana Allah goes to waste.
So everything comes.
So I was saying the other day that Allah azza wa jal says, Well, my animal you know, there will be kala who only Allah Subhana Allah knows the armies of Allah subhanaw taala are known to Allah azza wa jal. So there's this story that I would like to share with you.
Whether it's authentic or not, that's besides the point. The point here is that the moral of the story is that Allah Subhana Allah answers
and responds to the person that calls upon him that turns to him that realizes that Allah azza wa jal is in his company, a person that really
capitalizes on this Mariya of Allah to be in the presence of Allah.
So it is said that this righteous man was traveling with all of his wealth
when some criminals
and decided to take everything they wanted to rob him take everything and kill him.
So this righteous man, please wear his life. He asked them, he begged them to take everything, take everything, but spare my life. I have a family to go back to.
I have things that I need to do spare my life. Take everything.
They said Lebert, there is no
choice except to kill you.
So he said, then let me just pray my last two rockers. Let me pray. If you don't mind, let me pray. That's my last wish. Was life.
And then he remembered that he is in Allah's Presence.
Must have prayed for God that day. He is He knows that Allah, he's he's in Allah subhanaw taala his presence Allah azza wa jal is in his company. He called upon Allah subhana wa taala. It is said that in each one of his four sujood, he prayed to raka
each time he makes to Jude
he asked Allah subhanaw taala to save him.
And he kept saying amazing, huge evil Motorola Elijah, who responds to the call of the desperate when he calls upon him,
except Allah subhanaw taala So verse in the Quran.
And then by the time he was about to finish his prayer, he noticed a night
a strange looking night
in his direction,
and the person that was robbing him turns
to look at that night, and they realize that that the night is aiming at the criminal
and then throws a spear.
the like of which he said I had never seen the spear comes,
This bandit, the robber, killing him instantly.
Finally, the night reaches, takes the spear and is about to depart mysteriously
right as as he arrived and the man came to him and said, yep hammock Allah may Allah have mercy on you, Allah Subhana Allah saved me through you. Who are you? Where did you come from? He said, I'm an angel from the fourth heaven.
When you made your first dua, and you called upon Allah subhanaw taala, we heard the echo of your voice in the heavens.
And I begged Allah subhanaw taala to let to make me or to let me be the one to rescue you.
And I was given permission to descend to the third,
to the lower heaven.
And when you made your drive the second time, we heard the echo of your words, and I begged Allah Subhana Allah to give me permission to go to rescue you. And I was given permission only to go to the lower one to the second.
And when you continue to pray and you made your fourth dua, I asked Allah Subhana Allah to give me permission to rescue you. And I was given permission to come to earth and rescue you.
And one of the lessons from this story is never give up. Imagine if he stopped after the third one.
In Naramata, Allah hickory Bowman in my city, and Allah Subhana Allah Allah is with us. Subhana Allah to Allah and the mercy of Allah Subhana Allah is close to those who excel in doing their best according to the code yourself for Allah Allah Welcome. Welcome in the Whoville Allah photo Rahim.
hamdulillah hamdu lillah
wa salatu salam ala Stouffer well that many are the stories that we know about. But sometimes we fail to really relate to these stories. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When I walk around the Allahu Anhu looked at him and he said, messenger of God. They're here.
They caught up with us. They're here, if any one of them was to look beneath his feet will be able to spot us.
And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam call me set to Abubaker Abubaker my one localbest name? Allah who said if a woman
will welcome Allah is our third Allah is in our company. What are you talking about?
They won't be able to see us. unless Allah Subhana Allah wants him to see us and they didn't see them. There was nothing to block their their view.
And Allah as we recorded this moment,
in the Quran, and we recited
where Allah Subhana Allah says, He said to his companion, if the opponent is so heavy, he said to his companion Lata isn't, don't be sad.
Don't stress out Don't Don't, don't worry. For those of us, by the way, that was a bucker. If anyone has any doubt as to what the emotional state of Abubaker was, he was sad. He was in distress. He was worried. He had severe anxiety because he was afraid that something bad may happen to the prophets of Allah I think
that only comes out of loving, genuine heart. But all the Allahu Anhu Allah so Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the prophets comfortable back and said, Don't worry about it. In the Lucha mana, Allah is with us.
He didn't say I was with me. He said Allah is with us with both of us.
And Allah Subhana Allah save them.
The stories are many, Moses thought thought, rather, his people thought that they were doomed. They were done.
And they said, Moses, look at what you've done to us.
Fair, we're here we're blocked by this body, this massive body of water. Where are we going to go and Pharaoh and his entire army
out approaching? We're done in that mudra Kuhn We're doomed. We're done. By the Calla. He said no. In the Marriott visa, Dean, my Lord is with me. And notice that here he said with me he didn't say with us why? Because their hearts were not in the right place. He said, My Lord is with me in America be sadeem and He will guide me
Keep that in mind.
Keep that in mind, no matter what it is that you're going through
all the trials of this life, nothing again is greater than the mercy and the power of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah as we all can resolve it.
What we need to do is do our part and be in the presence of Allah realize that we're in the Presence of Allah do our best remember Allah subhanaw taala connect with Allah be as Allah azza wa jal wants us to be
and worship Allah Subhana Allah and commit, as if he sees us or as if we see him, and though we don't see him he sees us.
Ask Allah subhanaw taala to heal our wounds and to comfort our hearts and to ease all of our difficulties. Ask Allah subhanaw taala to ease the difficulties of our brothers and sisters who are suffering anywhere in the world. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah ease the suffering of the Palestinian people, may Allah subhanaw taala liberate al Masjid Al Aqsa, may Allah Subhana Allah strengthen those who are defending the honor of this ummah, and may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah cause the plots of those
who are plotting against this religion. And the people of this religion may Allah cause all of these plots to fail.
