We seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge in Allah from the evils of ourselves.
In the evil consequences of our actions, whom ever Allah guides, none can lead astray. And whomsoever alarm is guides, none can show him guidance. I testify that there is no one worthy of worship, but the Almighty Allah alone. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was ALLAH is His servant and His Messenger or you who believe, fear Allah as you should be feared and die not except in a state of submission to your Lord as Muslims, or mankind. be dutiful to your Lord who created you from a single person. And from him he created his wife and from them both, he created many men and women, and fear Allah through whom you demand your mutual rights and observe
the rights of your kin. Surely Allah is ever an old watcher over you, or you who believe. Keep your duty to Allah fear him and speak the truth. He will direct you to righteous deeds and will forgive your sins, and whoever obeys Allah and His Messenger has indeed attained a great achievement. The best words are those of Allah. And the best guidance is that of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early he was salam. And the worst things in the religion are the newly invented matters. For all the newly invented matters in religion, are considered to be an innovation and bidder and every bidder is misguidance.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam was with his great companion Abu Bakr, Radi Allahu Anhu. And they were fleeing Makkah. They were trying to escape. They were running for their lives. And Uber cuddly Allahu Anhu was so concerned to the point as they were riding towards Medina, Abu Bakr Radi Allahu Anhu would keep turning around looking backwards. And he was concerned about people who are chasing them. And sometimes he would go in front of the Prophet SAW Selim out of fear that they were ambushed, sometimes to the right to the profits are seldom sometimes to the left out of his concern.
And the Prophet SAW said MCs Abubaker he's so concerned and he says, what's going on? Yeah, Abubaker he says, All Messenger of Allah, I remember that people are chasing us. So I decide to be behind you just in case that I would be the shield for you. And sometimes I remember there might be ahead of us, they might have ambushed us. So I get in front of you. I don't want any harm to touch you. I want to be different. I want to I want to sacrifice myself for you. Sometimes I remember the might approaches from the right or the left. So you find me positioning myself in that direction. Then the Prophet SAW Selim comes over and he says, What do you think? Mother NACA Bethanien. Allahu Thadeus.
Homer, he says in the la hermana. Allah has an in Allah Hama, Anna. He says, Oh, look, I don't fear don't be concerned Allah is with us. Allah is with us in the most difficult moments, the prophets, Allah Allah when he was salam had hope in Allah subhanho wa taala. During the Battle of Allah 100 When the Muslims were surrounded, there was a siege set around the Muslims just before that, the Prophet SAW Salem instructed the Muslims to dig a trench out round Medina to protect themselves. And it wasn't an easy task. And sometimes, they came across some hurdles, huge, massive rocks that they couldn't break that they could not destroy. They would come to they would approach the Prophet SAW
Selim to help them out. And one day the prophets of Allah Islam strikes one of the massive rocks and he says Allahu Akbar, to my fatty haggis, Allah, Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah to my fatty Hashem, Allahu Akbar, or at least to my fatty helium, and that most difficult time when the Muslims were completely taken by fear, they were surrounded, they were outnumbered, there was suffering from lack of food and lack of tools and lack of finances. It was such a difficult time. Yet the Prophet sallallahu sallam was giving the Muslims glad tidings that promising them that I was given the keys to Persia. I was given the keys to a sham natural Syria, I will be given dominance over Yemen.
It was unthinkable. Yet the Prophet SAW Selim in the most difficult times, he had hope in Allah subhanho wa taala. Before that, during the time of are in Mecca, and we said some of the companions approach the prophets of salaam Allah kebab, explaining to the Prophet salallahu Salam, the predicament, the pain, the persecution that they were going through, and they said, O Messenger of Allah make to
call upon Allah that He brings an in brings an end soon soon he brings an end to this suffering. Yet the Prophet SAW Selim teaches the companions the lesson, that things are in the hands of Allah, the prophets of salaam had he didn't only have have hope, but he had
certainty that this was that the that the
that the relief from Allah subhanaw taala was going to come the question wasn't about whether it was going to come or not. But it was when? And the answer to this question is with Allah subhanaw taala it's not up to us. I want to share with you some of the details of the story of Prophet Musa Allah his story that all of us know or at least should know. And Allah subhanaw taala talks about this. In the Quran. Allah refers to Phil own and his helpers and his supporters. Allah subhanaw taala refers to them that they have divided people in the field I wanna I left out of the way she you're still a football if at a minimum with a homeboy yesterday and he sat at home in a hookah and I mean and move
city. Allah talks about for ona that he had sought such a high position that he has, he had that he oppressed people, he was a tyrant, he sought complete and pure dominance over people. And how did he do that? By dividing people into groups and factions.
If Arona Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah has Shia, he turned people into factions into groups fighting against one another. And that's the rule of old tyrants divide and conquer, divide and conquer. That's the same thing that for one used the same thing that all tyrants and concurrence and conquer has resorted to, and that was to divide people amongst themselves so you can dominate over them. And this is what's happening today. This is what happened in what's happening today, when Muslims are divided into groups, into nationalities, into ideologies, into ethnicities, into languages, into cultures, into neighborhoods, sometimes, it's keeping the Muslims divided.
And this is how they can be subjugated. This is how they can be controlled and dominated. That's what we did. And then for our own
use, too, because he had a dream about one of the children of Israel that he will grow, and he will overtake the throne of Iran. So for our own decided upon the advice of some of his helpers, To Kill every boy that is born into the children of Israel,
to guarantee that no one would take over the throne, to guarantee his own dominance, yet, you can't win against Allah subhanaw taala you can take all the measures, you can have all the power, you can have all the reach you want.
And you can do everything you think will protect you. Yet as Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, from the statements of use of Alayhis Salam in Nairobi, Latif only Maga SHA, Allah subhanaw taala is very subtle in his ways, Allah will get his will to come into full realization
but in his own ways, in ways you you can never think about you can never even figure out the will of Allah subhanaw taala will come true
so, Allah subhanaw taala comments on this. When we do an Amana Allah Allah Dena stood a fulfill audibly, wanna gyla Hum inmitten wanna gyla Home will worry thin. And we want to show our favor to the people who have been subjugated the people who have been enslaved the children of Israel at the time, because Allah subhanaw taala one of his unique attributes is his pride and his might and His pure dominance is complete dominance over the creation over everything. And anyone who tries to take a share of that Allah subhanaw taala will destroy them, as in the Hadith, the Divine Hadith and Hadith. Allah Subhana Allah says anyone who tries to compete against me in dominance,
then I shall break their back. So when anyone tries to dominate the world, anyone tries to claim complete sovereignty over the creation, Allah subhanaw taala will destroy them, but according to his own timetable, not according to our wishes and desires. That's what Allah subhanaw taala did with frown. Allah gave him the time as he said, we're only LA home in Niki de Mateen. And I shall give them the time to complete their oppression and the wrongdoing. And as the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, in Allah Azza wa Jalla Yummly live volume had either a Harada who will reflect on Allah subhanaw taala gives free play to the oppressors to the wrongdoers.
Allah allows them space and time, so that their oppression reaches its full extent.
And then when Allah subhanaw taala takes them away, he destroys them completely. So sometimes we look at the world today. We see there are
tyrants, there are oppressors. There's a lot of injustice in the world and sometimes we think, why is Allah subhanaw taala not doing anything about that? The thing is, Allah knows better.
Allah knows better and Allah doesn't work according to our timetable. Allah has wisdom behind everything that he allows into existence. And if we want to have hope in Allah, we have to trust in the plan of Allah subhanaw taala not expect Allah to work according to our plan, or according to our timing. One of the great Imams of Islam. Jaffa Sadhak Rahim Allah hooter, Allah one of the descendants of Illuminati authority, probably Allah who I know. He said, Allah, Allah, who Bina she and what Allah the Meenakshi from Allah de who Bina Allahu Ana, one Allah, the whom in now of how to hula Anna Bella Luna and I still read aubema Allah Who Bina and Radha Homina. He says, ALLAH
SubhanA, wa Taala once certain things for us, and He wants certain things from us, certain things for us, and to certain things from us, meaning that Allah subhanaw taala plan things for us. This is the father of Allah, that's going to happen in our lives, that's going to happen in our future.
And Allah wanted certain things from us things that we are supposed to fulfill things that we are supposed to achieve things that we are supposed to meet certain conditions, certain deeds.
And he says the things that he wants for us, he has hidden them from us, what's gonna happen to you tomorrow?
What's gonna happen to you in five years time? What's going to happen to you in 10 years time? What is going, what's going to happen to you on the Day of Judgment?
No one knows. That's what Allah wants for you. That's the plan he has for you. But he has hidden this from you, you have no ways to know the unseen, Allah has kept this knowledge to himself.
And there are things that Allah wants from you. These are the obligations. These are the prohibitions that you are supposed to avoid abide by. These are the general guidelines that you are supposed to live by these things he made visible to you, he clarified them to you. Then Jeff al Assad says, What's wrong with us that we are so preoccupied with what Allah wanted from what Allah wanted for us, which he hid from us, to the point that we neglect what Allah wanted from us, which he made clear and visible to us.
One of the tambourine he said, a se domain inshallah Bhima, OD Allah Who Minho lamb and inshallah Bhima Allah, Allah who behave, is the one who will really make who will be successful on the Day of Judgment is the person who keeps himself busy with what Allah wants from him or her. Not the person who preoccupies themselves with what Allah planned for them.
Let Allah subhanaw taala do His work, rest, be at peace with what Allah wants for you because Allah is the best of planners. Sometimes we asked for things and we make the app and we expect expect Allah subhanaw taala to answer our dua, Yet Allah has a better plan for you. So Allah puts things, or Allah brings about better things for you than what you wanted in the first place. That's the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa taala. So trust in Allah. That's what the Prophet SAW. So that's how he acted. When Habad came to him when the other companions came to him at the time of MK and they said, O Messenger of Allah, it's got to a point where we can't put up with it anymore. It's unbearable.
The Prophet SAW Selim says, You are hasty. Allah doesn't work according to your expectations. He has a better plan. So what you need to do is trust in Allah.
And Allah Subhana Allah reveals how his plan work plans work out best for you, even when you expect it the least. And that's what the story of Musa alayhis salam is about. So for around dominated these people he had complete full dominance over them over the children of Israel Yet Allah subhanaw taala says when we do a nomina either live in a studio a fulfill up we want to show
One of our favor to those who have been subjugated and enslaved when imagine one thing, and we want to make them the ones who are dominant. We want to give them the positions of leadership. Anyone who lived at that time, this seemed as an impossibility. You're alasa subhanaw taala says, that's what we want to. This is what we want for them. This is the plan that Allah had had for them. When they think we want we want them to inherit dominance over the earth.
When we met Cain, Allah homefield, establish them on the earth. We're not here for a man.
And we want to show and demonstrate to the ground, and his supporters and his legions.
What they were fearing the most, the fact that the children of Israel would dominate over the Pharaoh and his people. And that's what happened afterwards.
So when we look around the world, and we see your presses and tyrants dominating the world, not only at the political level, but even in your personal life, it happens in families, sometimes there is an abusive father, or abusive mother, or an abusive spouse, or disrespectful child, who is creating a lot of trouble. Or sometimes a brother or a sister that are creating so much trouble.
And you can't you can't seem to be able to do much to fix the situation. These people take advantage. These people are so venomous and poisonous in your life, that they ruin everything in your life.
What can you do?
Your focus should be on what Allah wants from you, not what Allah wants for you. Because Allah is gonna take care of that.
And don't place expectations on Allah what you can do as the prophets Allah wa sallam said,
Hara Salah million Phalke, what's the MB Allah he will attaches you seek, you proactively seek and engage with what is beneficial for you. You see what is beneficial for you in terms of your relationship with Allah, and in terms of your worldly affairs, as long as they are within the framework of Islam within the guidelines of Islam, then you seek that and you work hard towards it. And you do everything within your capacity.
But whether things end up the way you want or not that Allah thing that's not yours.
That's what it means you do your work and you leave things with Allah subhanaw taala.
And actually, the fact that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala
puts things together for you, Allah plans for you should be a source of comfort and peace in the hardest.
It was said by some of a tabby and they were having a discussion. And one of them said
that if Allah subhanaw taala gives me a choice on the Day of Judgment, that who is going to judge me?
Is it my parents, or Allah,
I will choose Allah.
I will choose Allah because Allah is more more merciful than my own parents.
Wish should live in this life. In the same way we approach a loss hunter in this way, we should never lose hope in Allah subhanaw taala. So what happened afterwards, look at more Sally hustler.
He was originally planned. Like all the children of Israel, the newly newly born children, they were destined to death. But Allah subhanaw taala inspired the mother of Musa alayhis salam to put them in a basket and put them on the river. He was carried with to the house of the pharaoh, right to the hub of all of this oppression, the place where the command to kill all of the boys born into the children of Israel. This is where the decision originated from. In that house, he comes to the hub of that decision to the very person who made that decision.
And what he is adopted in that house. And he is brought up in this house and he's educated in this house. And then yet after he grows up, and he has this fight with this person and the other person dies, then he has to flee because they wanted to persecute him. So he is to leave Egypt at the time. And he moves to live in Midian and imagine he meets new people and then there he gets married and he has some work to do. He gets a job and he does the work. He's far from his homeland now.
It seems that
his life is just drifting away from his homeland but Allah subhanaw taala brings him back. And as he was traveling out with his family out of Midian Allah so He has an appointment with Allah subhanaw taala that he was clueless about, and Allah gives him a mission. And then he scurred it
And he goes back to the ground. And he confronts him with a message with the truth.
Against all odds, he has no power, he has no mind. He has no followers here, even his the people who are supposed to be his followers, they were the magicians who were supporting for or against him. They were siding with Iran against Mercedes, Selim. This is the people that he came to rescue in the first place from the enslavement. And that happens. It happens you find the very people that you're trying to help. They are the ones who stabbed you in the back, it happens. That's part of life. It's part of life. But that doesn't mean you stop doing what you're supposed to do. It doesn't mean you don't act on your mission.
It doesn't mean that you act ethically and morally and you fulfill your obligations to Allah subhanaw taala. The Prophet sallallahu sallam was injured was physically attacked by his own people. And what did he say about them? He said, Hola. Hola. Hola. Hola me for anomala Mon. Oh, ALLAH forgive my people because they don't know. They don't know what they're doing, or Allah forgive them.
So we have hope and Allah subhanaw taala. And we have to maintain that hope and live by that hope. Ye kizoa Hope is not in the immediate conditions that we see.
Our hope is in the one who makes this reality unfold according to his wisdom. Oh look, only here. There was an awful lot you were looking for stuff.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala Ali. He was one of the many well that
Allah Subhana Allah says in surah, Yusuf quoting Prophet Iacob ne Salam.
He says in Nola Yasumoto, Hilda, Hilda omole, Catherine, that no one loses hope in Allah. But those who have disbelieved. Those who have disbelieved. And that's why let us we are supposed to have hope in Allah subhanaw taala and trust that he has the best plan for you and for me.
Look at use of allihies Salaam, his life went from bad to worse.
First, he was taken by his own brothers, thrown in the well abandoned in the well then sold into slavery, then becoming a slave. Then after he grows up, he becomes subjugated to such a great fitna, such a great trial and temptation, yet he resists resists it. Then afterwards, he gets accused of the very thing he was trying to avoid that he was being promiscuous.
So he is convicted, and he's put in prison. Look at the whole thing is from bad to worse. This is how it seems the immediate situation looks as if it's going just worse, every every moment, every second, it was just getting worse.
But we shouldn't be looking at reality only a one level, the immediate level.
We have to look at reality at multiple levels, because things all the things that seem to be wrong in your life when they are when when they are strung together.
When they are threaded together.
The meaning of them could turn out to be good. And that's what happens when you trust in Allah subhanaw taala when you connect the dots, what seemed to be harmful, what seemed to be painful, what seemed to be inconvenient,
could actually be for you. And the condition is that you trust in Allah subhanaw taala that you have hope in Allah subhanaw taala
and then he was put in prison for such a long time.
His life seemed to be passing by his time was wasted in the prison. This is what it seems to be. But all of that. Allah subhanaw taala was putting things for him to put him in the perfect positioning to become one of the most influential people in the world at the time, where he could where he could offer so much good to people. He could change people's lives. He could save lives by the plan that he had to deal with the famine.
That's where trust and hoping Allah subhanaw taala leads people and that's what I'm inviting you to do. I'm inviting myself as well to do that. Is that Living Hope? Hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala
that's the only thing that we have, and trust that Allah subhanho wa Taala his plan for you is better than you planned for yourself. Because we've learned based on what we know but Allah subhanaw taala plans based on what he himself knows.
And again, this should be a source of comfort and peace for us. We ask Allah subhanaw taala to guide us to what he loves and help us fulfill the obligations that he has placed upon us and help us live in hope and trust that He will take care
