00:00:58--> 00:01:06

We begin by thinking and praising Allah who is most deserving and entitled of our gratitude and of our praise of him.

00:01:08--> 00:01:19

We bear witness that there is absolutely no one worthy to be worshipped except Allah alone. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his last and final prophet and messenger.

00:01:20--> 00:01:37

We begged a lot to shower Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with salutations and compliments, peace, protection, mercy and blessings and upon his family and upon his companions and upon all of those who follow his tradition, his Sunnah until the end of time.

00:01:38--> 00:01:47

We also begin by reminding one another to have Taqwa of Allah, to be aware and conscious of Allah subhana wa tada as our Creator

00:01:49--> 00:01:58

and to constantly persevere to do the actions that he has commanded us to do, and to fight and to struggle to stay away from that which displeases him.

00:01:59--> 00:02:09

Allah commanded us to do so in the Quran in many places and instructed us to not allow the Angel of Death to come upon us except that we are in a state of full submission to him alone.

00:02:12--> 00:02:23

Allahu subhana wa tada in the Quran informs us that He created us to worship Him. And this is often a statement and a claim that we repeat and here

00:02:25--> 00:02:32

and the idea of worship of Riba when Allah says will not hold off till Gina will insert allele or goon

00:02:33--> 00:02:35

Riba in Arabic literally means

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

servitude.

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

This is actually in line with a human need.

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

The way the human being is created

00:02:49--> 00:02:53

is that it needs to worship and surrender and submit

00:02:54--> 00:02:56

to a more powerful being

00:02:57--> 00:02:59

than the human him or herself.

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

And that's why you find that human beings throughout the centuries and throughout the generations and throughout the different walks of life, worship something.

00:03:10--> 00:03:22

Even those who claim they don't worship anything, are in fact worshiping their own desires and intellects. Allah who somehow Subhana Allah says Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, how

00:03:24--> 00:03:28

have you noticed the one who has taken his own desires,

00:03:29--> 00:03:32

as is Allah as an object of worship.

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

And this is the nature of the human being.

00:03:36--> 00:03:42

And that's why the most perfect state of being is to be in a state of servitude, not to another creation,

00:03:43--> 00:03:56

who is also in need and needs to worship someone else. But rather put yourself in a state of servitude to the creator of all creation, Allahu Subhana, WA tada and there is no other supreme creator accept him or alongside him or with him.

00:03:59--> 00:04:01

But oftentimes, when we talk about a bad

00:04:03--> 00:04:05

we think of the word worship.

00:04:06--> 00:04:15

And we think of ritual acts of worship, which do fall under the umbrella of Riba like the Sala that we do five times a day,

00:04:17--> 00:04:31

or like, for example, sacrifice and slaughtering animals that we do an ad of hair that passed not too long ago, or the act of rebellion of prostration, etc. So many ritual acts of worship, Hajj, Ramadan, fasting and Ramadan,

00:04:32--> 00:04:33

etc.

00:04:34--> 00:04:41

But the aroma, they talk about RML acts of worship, but they also talk about marylu.

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

They also talk about actions of the heart,

00:04:46--> 00:04:52

which are not physical actions that you do with your limbs or with your tongue.

00:04:53--> 00:05:00

But it is an act because internally in your spiritual heart, you have to put in effort and that's what makes

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

An action

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

and without these actions of the hearts there will not be proper and complete the Riba and worship of Allah.

00:05:09--> 00:05:15

worship and servitude and rabada of Allah is not only in physical actions but it begins with actions of the heart

00:05:17--> 00:05:19

and amongst them and they are many.

00:05:20--> 00:05:22

Amongst them we will focus on just one today,

00:05:24--> 00:05:26

which is a tower cooler Allah Allah,

00:05:28--> 00:05:33

often translated as relying upon Allah, perhaps we can shed some more light on that today.

00:05:37--> 00:05:57

What does this word mean? In the Arabic language it comes from the word root word what color which means to rely upon someone or something else, to lean upon someone or something else. So there is automatically an admission of need. But you need to rely upon someone else to help you with something.

00:05:59--> 00:06:08

But when we talk about telecoil, in light of the actions of the heart, and towards Allah, expressing rebels expressing servitude and worship to Allah,

00:06:10--> 00:06:20

what comes to mind is the definition of the scholar admitted to him a whole lot when he said, What cool slate or tema de la biala. The bill ASVAB

00:06:21--> 00:06:27

which is a very beautiful and comprehensive definition. He said, it is for the heart to sincerely

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

and genuinely, and truthfully, and all of these things can only happen inside the heart.

00:06:36--> 00:06:57

When it comes to actions that others witness there is a potential for sincerity, there's a potential for hypocrisy, but when it's internally and no one knows about except a lawyer, creator and you yourself, that is the real litmus test of sincerity sleep, tema is my heart truthfully and sincerely and genuinely relying upon Allah.

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

Simultaneously,

00:07:03--> 00:07:11

the bill is about while exhausting all possible means, and resources that are available to me and at my disposal.

00:07:14--> 00:07:51

And there cannot be one without the other this scholar said an ability to study he said, Allah who will soon be what what could Allah Helena be? For Furman partner will agree will ASVAB for sooner woman poor Anna fatawa coulier the life of a foreigner v men for men kana Allah Halle Navy failure Khun failure melby sunitinib, he said exhaust means that are available to you and resources and do all possible actions that you can do with your abilities

00:07:52--> 00:07:56

is the sooner is the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:07:58--> 00:08:33

And he said the idea of having tawakkol is the hand is the state of being that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam our role model was in. So he said whoever criticizes these, the idea and the notion of having to put forth effort, then they are criticizing the Sunnah and the tradition of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the one who criticizes the notion of needing to sincerely internally feel dependent and reliant upon Allah than they have criticized the very essence of Eman the very essence of believing and having conviction in Allah.

00:08:35--> 00:08:44

So whoever wants to be in the state of being of the prophet SAW Selim of EMA and to what good then let them act upon his Sunnah and let them exhaust all means and resources.

00:08:46--> 00:08:59

Allahu Subhana Allah to Allah said in the Quran in surah, to the hub what what can Allah wa kafa biLlahi wa keila put all of your reliance and your trust with regards to outcomes of the actions

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

full tawakkol upon a law exclusively alone, and a lot is the most is sufficient for you to rely upon.

00:09:10--> 00:09:26

Billa heikkila that's why one of the names of a lot is L Joaquin, the best to rely upon the best to entrust the outcome of your affairs with and what's amazing is of the names of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his alma mater was

00:09:27--> 00:09:29

the one who has reached the height of telecoil.

00:09:30--> 00:10:00

That's why our beautiful role model Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he participated in the military expedition of he wore two pieces of armor deal our aim even though Allah told him will love who he assumed will come in and NUS. Allah is going to protect you from the evil in the hearts of the people, but he still wore two pieces of armor. He could have gone on that battlefield without any armor reciting this verse will Laviano similkameen in us, but the Prophet is teaching us that I believe Allah will protect me but I have this armor in my hands. I will

00:10:01--> 00:10:37

That's why when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam went on a journey he took with him food, even though he said in a hadith in the La Jolla Steen Allah feeds me and gives me what to drink. But he packed his provisions. When the Prophet was in the journey of Angela, he hired a man as a guide, even though Allah told him, let me add the Kabbalah. Allah has guided you, Allah will guide you to the street in the appropriate path. Did not the Prophet believe in these promises of Allah? Of course he did. But that never held him back from exhausting all means and resources that he had available to him by the blessing of Allah.

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

That Allah was the one that provided all of these means to begin with.

00:10:43--> 00:11:20

So Allah is Allah key in the best entity to trust and rely upon. And our beautiful wrong role model is enomoto working, the one who embodied and taught us how to rely upon Allah subhanaw taala fully, and he taught us that not by abandoning actions, and sitting back lazy Lee, that's what shavon wants us to do. shavon wants us to be lazy. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us to work hard, only had our Sofitel La Jolla welcome when you say no Muslim Muslim, equally them infested Pharaoh in the Hoover for Rahim repent to Allah for he is the most forgiving, Most Merciful

00:11:32--> 00:11:32

hamdu Lillah

00:11:34--> 00:11:45

wa salatu salam ala Milena via badda Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Where have you been Mohammed? Wherever early he will be? He was a limited Sleeman kathira

00:11:47--> 00:12:21

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam embodied and taught us how to have to work well how to rely upon a lot truthfully and sincerely. And all of the NBS taught us this as Allah says, Have you heard that homework today follow their guidance, and especially the Prophet of Allah Ibrahim alayhis. Salam. Allah tells us about Ibrahim that Ibrahim Alayhi Salam when he was very young in age, he took a very courageous and wise and mature stance by refusing to fall into the trap that many of his people fell into, which was to devote acts of worship to other than Allah,

00:12:22--> 00:12:24

which is a lack of telecoil in Allah.

00:12:26--> 00:12:38

And Ibrahim as he said, I'm carried out an act in an experiment amongst his people by destroying their false idols that they fashioned with their own hands, to prove to them that this that they are worshipping has no basis and has no value.

00:12:39--> 00:12:54

They responded by threatening to punish him. So they lit a huge fire the MSA fire was so huge and so hot that if a bird flew from above, the heat would kill this bird and it would fall into the fire.

00:12:56--> 00:13:39

It was so hot they couldn't even get close enough to it to throw a heat into the fire. So they had to design a catapult catapult to throw him into the fire. And as they did so, and they are tying him and they are getting ready to cast him into this fire. Ibrahim it he said and saw gibreel and he said I'm the angel gibreel the mightiest and greatest of the angels have Allah subhana wa Tada. And only the prophets and their messengers see God in His original form like that. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah who said to me it Jenna, he has 600 wings. The sight of Djibouti is a sight unfathomable to our limited minds and imaginations. And Jubilee, asked Ibrahim

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

in the hajer

00:13:42--> 00:13:43

Do you have any need for me?

00:13:45--> 00:13:47

Is there anything that you need from me to do for you?

00:13:49--> 00:14:03

gibreel alayhis salam is that Angel of Allah that destroyed an entire civilization with the tip of his wing gibreel alayhis salam is that Angel of Allah that with one breath, could take out all of those fires that that people had lit.

00:14:05--> 00:14:09

But Ibrahim responded with, my need is with Allah alone.

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

You are a creation of Allah as well.

00:14:15--> 00:14:33

has to be Allahu wa Nirmal Joaquim, a phrase that Allah taught us to say in the Quran in surah, Allah Emraan What is it mean has to be Allah, Allah is sufficient and enough for me when near Milwaukee and the best and most beautiful one for me to rely upon.

00:14:36--> 00:14:42

If Allah Subhana Allah is aiding and helping you then you are not in the need of any other creation.

00:14:43--> 00:14:59

And there is no one more beautiful and more perfect to rely upon than Allah subhana wa tada heslin Allahu wa near Milwaukee. Let us learn this phrase and keep it constantly on our tongues to remind ourselves that Allah subhana wa

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

There is no one entitled to us relying upon him and relying upon him alone.

00:15:07--> 00:15:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us in the Quran, what to what color lol havilah mood actually the command is directed to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and by extension, you and I his own man. Put your entire trust in Allah subhanaw taala. Why? Because he is La, la de la jolla mood. Allah is the ever living that never expires or dies or comes to an end, every single other creation will eventually expire. And so your reliance upon them will also come to an end.

00:15:37--> 00:15:54

And we don't know when that expiration will be, but Allah is the ever living layer moot, never ever ceases to exist. And a law concludes that verse in the most amazing of ways are Kapha b e, b Zulu b e by d hubiera.

00:15:56--> 00:16:05

And Allah subhana wa tada is fully aware of the poor choices and the mistakes and the sins that his servants do. What's the relationship between this and having to work on?

00:16:06--> 00:16:21

How can we truly have to work with in Allah when we know that Allah is watching us and we intentionally and purposefully disobeyed him? And if we do make that mistake, how can we intentionally disobey Allah and not ask Allah to forgive us?

00:16:22--> 00:16:45

All of this goes hand in hand. All of these are among the actions of the heart. They are a package deal, expressing and feeling gratitude to Allah feeling dependence and need of Allah subhana wa Tada. And part of that gratitude and that need is to use the blessings he gave us in a manner that is pleasing to Him, not in a manner that is displeasing to him. He is fully aware of all of our choices, the good and the bad.

00:16:47--> 00:17:24

of the barriers of being able to have Taqwa in Allah is to continuously and persistently disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala. The heart that is constantly running away from Allah is not a heart that will be able to rely upon Allah. It is a heart that will rely upon the body, and the limbs and the money and the skills and the knowledge and the friends and the connections. And all of those will eventually come to an end. When the markets going to crash, who will be there for us other than Allah, right now we are in a state of comfort, we have our degrees, we have our skills, we have our jobs, we have our sources of income, but what happens when that gets interrupted?

00:17:27--> 00:17:48

That is the true test if we are truly relying upon Allah or not. And it is in those moments, when some people choose to turn back to Allah, and they are wise. And there is at those moments when people blame Allah, but the only ones that are deserving of blame is the carrier of the heart that never relied upon Allah in the first place. Even at the days of comfort and ease.

00:17:49--> 00:18:08

Let us train our hearts to have to rely upon Allah subhana wa Taala fully and entirely has when Allah who were near Milwaukee alone, salty about him told us that the believers said when Elena allana to work Allah Allah, how could we not rely upon Allah

00:18:10--> 00:18:53

Subhana Allah is the one that has guided us hamdulillah he lives he hadn't really had a woman could not do Lola and her done Allah, we think in praise Allah for guiding us to this. If it weren't for him, we would have not been guided. And we rely upon Allah subhanho wa Taala fully and entirely. May Allah subhanho wa Taala beautify us with the character of our beloved messenger, the one who embodied torquil upon Allah subhana wa tada May Allah Subhana Allah bless us and fill our hearts with reliance upon him and him alone. May Allah subhanho wa Taala not make us of those who fall into the delusion of relying upon themselves so that they will end up being destroyed. Before we

00:18:53--> 00:19:31
