The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam one day says to his companions Hello more.
So this isn't a region that has two versions that are quite close but I will combine them together one is narrated one is collected in psi hijama. And the other one is in a totally bottle heap by monitoring.
The Prophet SAW Selim says to the Companions Hello mu for arcobello for jealousy, the Prophet SAW Selim says that the Companions come over, come here. And that's a very friendly way of speaking to people. Hello, Mo come over like there is something significant. I want to talk to you about it draws attention, but it's very friendly and fatherly Hello, most people usually use that with their friends with people who are very close to them. Hello, for October loofa. Genesis. The Companions came to the Prophet son, they came close and sat around them.
He says how the Rasul Allah Bill Allah mean, this is the Messenger of Allah, and he's referring to Gibreel Alayhis Salam so he says in a row Hello. Do you see Nephi Oh, a row hell kudos.
Rohan kudos against the Holy Spirit. And here we're talking about Gibreel Alayhis Salam, the great angel
that'll help produce in fsfe Oh II
and for those who know the Arabic language there are two words that are closer and people confuse them lower and lower or lower is fear.
Whereas rule is the heart and the mind in natural health Buddhists in fsfe Rowley, and then if Sunland vermouth had tried to stir Camila agenda what is still a berries Aha, feta hula how he made all of your palate for in hola hola Yuna Luma in the hooby Matt see it
over in hola hola hola Luma in the HoH.
So he said Gibreel
the Holy Spirit came to me or the Holy Spirit inspired in me these words
in an epsilon Terminator had struck me that agenda that a soul or a person will not die until they have consumed all of the time that is allotted to them in this life.
What is still a bear is kaha and no person will die no soul will die until it has received all of it written provision that is risk that is given to it. It will receive it before it dies in full
factor Allah Hola Hola, Jamila fifth polyp, be mindful of Allah be fearful of Allah be dutiful to Allah and seek your provision with moderation and balance.
For in one another narration? Well, I mean, I had ACOEM is the PA or risk a global who will be mostly Atilla.
And don't let your impatience with regards to your provision coming to you. Don't Don't let your impatience push you to seek your provision.
By committing acts of disobedience or by resorting to unlawful means, for in hola hola. You're no longer in the whole elaborate by it. What is from Allah can only be attained
by obeying Him by only by obedience by acts that are sanctioned and that are consented to by him.
This is a profound perspective on life.
And it shows that the prophets Allah sent him the moment he was inspired by Jibreel on this, obviously this is Revelation because Jibreel is the one who carries the revelation to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, these are teachings from Allah. They came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam the moment he received them, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam realized this is such an important matter. And he left no time. He didn't postpone it too late. He said to the Companions, hello, moo, come to me. Come over here. They sat down with full attention. Because that's they knew when the prophets Allah Salam spoke, it was an important matter. It was something that they could
benefit from it was something that they would grab and wrap their hearts around.
So he said, this interview headquarters in fff hero,
Angel Jibreel just inspired me with these words, that no soul will die before it receives all of the time, and all of the provision that it is given. That means your time is set. Your provision
is fixed, it's been decided.
And the prophets of salaam said in the Hadith. In Allahu Akbar Turbomeca de Ron holla. At cobbler and yellow personality will become Sina Alpha Santa, that Allah wrote all the details of this life and everything that is going to happen in it 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. Everything was known to Allah from eternity. And it was set by ALLAH from eternity, and it was decided and then it was sealed. It was written and sealed 50,000 years before us before the creation of the heavens and the earth. It's a decided matter.
What does this tell us? This is a big part of the puzzle of life. It tells us that things are in the hands of Allah
that you are taking care of. So don't fear anything. Don't think you will miss out on anything that is meant to come to you.
What is meant to come to you will land on your lap. What is
not meant for what is what was not meant to come to you, you will never get it no matter how hard you try. That's what you can get. That tells us things are in the hands of Allah. They decided by Allah, the Almighty, He has the power, he has the mind. He decides, he has the final say
nothing happens in his kingdom. But what he allows, that's the world that we live in. And we need to be mindful of this all the time.
So that leaves us to rest assured
that Allah will take care of us, that Allah subhanaw taala has already figured out our life, and he has put everything in place. So rest assured, don't lose heart, seeking your provision, or facing the calamities and hardships and trials of life. Don't lose heart. Allah has taken care of everything.
So you're not alone in this life. You're not reinventing your life. Allah has figured everything out. Allah has said everything in your life. So you are taken care of. You don't have to worry.
You don't have to burn yourself out. Being concerned about what happened, what is happening, what is going to happen.
It is all taken care of that's what it means.
So you will not lose a second of your life, you're going to get it in full.
No one can take milliseconds, even from your life. So if you are meant to die, you will die at that point. No accident. No calamity, no surprise is going to cut your life short. You're going to you're going to die when your time comes and the Prophet sallallahu sallam said in the authentic hadith while I'm in the metadata which turned out any other rule can be sure you can remember Roca elaborate and cutterbar Hula, hula Alec and know that all of humanity, all of the Creation if they gathered together to bring you any harm, they will not be able to harm you with anything that is not written for you. All what people do, or what people strive for, ends up meeting the writing the
divine writing of Allah subhanaw taala that's the maximum we can do. Meet the words of ALLAH, fulfill the written cuddle of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is a source of tranquility and peace. In an authentic hadith the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said because everyone is going probably through hard times now and sometimes we are tempted to fall into haram. The Prophet SAW Selim tells us how risk works, a big piece of the puzzle, the Prophet sallallahu sallam said though Annapurna dama fell roaming risky he can I feel roaming agilely he Drucker who is who Who can argue that
if a human being were to run away from their provision, avoiding the provision the risk desperately as humans often run away, or try to run away from their feet from their death, the risk will follow them and catch them just as their death follows them and catches them
things are in the hands of Allah. And that's that's very good news. But we need to be mindful of it all the time.
And remember, this is a big piece of the puzzle. Another piece of the puzzle is that Allah says because many people will think okay, everything is set, let me just sit back, relax, whatever was written to come to Me will come to me, Will Allah subhanaw taala reprimanded Benny salam ala and everyone else among humans. He said to them as I took me in on me but I will kita be water Corona be bad for managers are only your fellow that he can come in. Because you and Phil hieratic dunya Well, young America Yeah, and that you are doing either I should either. Do you believe in part of the book and you leave off another part? Indeed, the punishment of such people is going to be disgrace
and humiliation in this life, and in the next life, there will be a humiliating punishment.
Allah subhanaw taala says femme sure few men are keybie however, kilometers.
When Allah spoke about the earth, he said, walk through the earth and seek the provision of Allah the fact that the provision of Allah was written for you is part of the puzzle. The other part of the puzzle is that you will go out and
seek it. Both are from Allah. You can't choose one and leave the other both go together. Because you don't know what your provision is. You don't know what your fate is. You're supposed to be proactive in this life, seek your provision and that's what the Prophet SAW. Selim says, in this hadith, he says, What are your Mila Nakhon? Uh, well, I Milan Hadouken is the thought or risk and yet Luba will be Marcia Tila, sometimes your impatience. You want some wealth or some money or some gain to come to you at your own estimation, at your own level of expectation. But it's not written to come to you at that time. Why? Because in our small, limited minds, we are impatient. We're not coming from a
So the Prophet so we have we develop this impatience. This should have come to me. No, that's your expectation. It doesn't have to be right. Allah is wiser, Allah knows best.
So don't let your impatience lead you to seek your provision through unlawful acts.
You know what?
Because your provision is going to come to you.
It's going to come to you anyway. You're seeking unlawful means is not going to increase your provision. If you are not meant to get it, you will not get it no matter what. Why. So that you know your true place. Who are you? Who am I? We're slaves. We are the slaves of Allah. You don't set the terms.
You don't get to decide. Allah runs the show.
You don't have a say here.
And although we live in that delusion,
and we think we get to decide, we make things happen. We actually don't is far bigger than that.
So the prophets of salaam directs us to the right course of action. And he says, *ed up Allah. What do you mean? Oh, good polyp.
Allah fear Allah means be dutiful to Allah, you are here to worship Allah. Why is there a provision in this life, why there was the reason why
it's not about you filling up your stomach, or wearing clothes, or living in a house, or enjoying that, although this comes with the package. But the main reason there is provision
is to serve one purpose. And that's the purpose for which you are pleased on this planet earth is the purpose for which Allah, Christ Allah created us. And it's a noble purpose. It's a lofty end. It is to worship Allah subhanho wa taala, to be mindful of Allah to praise Allah to celebrate his glory, to serve him on this earth. That's why we are created. That's why there is provision to help us fulfill this. So when we try to get our provision, away from the main purpose behind it, it's meaningless. It's out of context.
It is stripped out of its meaning it doesn't mean anything.
And that's what takes away the blessings of our provisions.
Even what is very little from Allah is abundant, but the spirit with which we received which receive it, the greed, the expectations, reduces the blessings, the baraka of all of this.
To Allah Hawa he made over polyp,
factor Cola, be mindful of Allah be dutiful to Allah. Don't forget your purpose. Don't lose your focus and your path.
Will edge medium for polyp moderately with balance with common sense. Seek your provision. Don't go aggressively about it.
Don't be obsessed with where am I going to get my money from what am I getting? Get my provision from? How am I going to get food on the table? How am I going to buy this car or get that house? How am I How am I going to afford this and that every day comes with its own provision. That doesn't mean don't plan but don't be obsessed with it. Don't be consumed with it because you were created for a greater purpose. The moment your concern for provision
encroaches and creeps on to your focus on of worshipping Allah subhanho wa taala. That's the moment you are thrown out of balance. Don't do that.
Your focus should be to
serve your purpose. And then whatever attention you left on the periphery is enough to get you your provision. It's the means through which Allah's provision comes to you. That's how you strike the balance. So rest assured Allah when he puts you on this earth, He created risk for you. And the day you don't have risk for you,
the day there is no risk written for you the time there is no provision that's gonna come to you is the time you are meant to leave this earth as long as you are here Allah will provide
your say there are people who starve in the world. There are people who die of starvation, they didn't die because of starvation. Their provision was over because the time was up.
But we are so grounded in materialism in capitalism, that we have lost track of the bigger picture. People don't people don't die because of famine. But famine comes to them when their time is over. In order to be a bridge for them into the next world.
Sometimes we get the cause and effect equation reversed
that's when Islam becomes mere decoration.
Put up Allah as middle column for in Hola Hola, yo en el Omar Endo.
Love it, love it, if you want what's with Allah subhanaw taala what Allah has in store for you. And that means the biggest provision and that's Jana Vazgen. That's what really matters. You can only get that through obedience to Allah subhanaw taala. So the prophets of salaam says shift the focus.
Put your focus where it belongs, where it can serve you the best because your obsession being completely consumed and taken by trying to get what is already guaranteed by Allah for you.
is a waste of resources
is an abuse of your energies and your power and what Allah subhanaw taala has given you. It's a very thin balance, but it's very powerful. And if you try to work this out with your mind, it doesn't work. You need your heart in this. You need your heart to be revived. To be aware of the world of the unseen to be trusting of Allah subhanaw taala so your heart works with your mind that you will find that balance. Apple only had a Western for Allah you were looking for stuff.
hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Jemaine or Beto. So a believer lives between two visions or grand vision. And that is everything is run by Allah, as decided by Allah.
And the other vision is
living with your feet grounded in this physical reality. And
the provision of Allah is decided, but you can't sit and wait. You have to go and get it.
You have to go and you have to do your part. Because that's an act of worship. Because that's how Allah told us to live in this life. Go get it, there is cause and effect. But if you embrace the cause and effect to the point that you remove Allah out of your consciousness and your awareness, you can't claim to be real. People say, hey, get real, focus on cause and effect. You can't get real, if Allah is not on your mind. If the bigger picture is overshadowed, you're not real. You are just stuck in a small corner of reality.
The moment you get real is when you are aware of the full spectrum of reality, the unseen that is the bigger picture. And then your immediate reality they both work together. And if you stick to only one of them,
you're creating a violation of how you're supposed to live in this life.
So that's the balance the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is guiding us to and one thing I want to close with some times today we Muslims.
We get desperate.
And we start to employ things or tactics that are found in the market. And you will find this sometimes with some Muslim merchants, some Muslim business people, they try and I've seen this as a growing phenomenon among phenomenon among Muslims, especially Muslim organizations using online marketing that doing extremely aggressive sensational marketing
We have a code of ethics in Islam. You can't play on people's emotions. You can't manipulate people and be sensational. Just to get money from people get funds from people just get a buy in from people. You can't do that.
You can't do that. You can't you can't use an unethical marketing that is dominant everywhere. Because our Code of Ethics doesn't come from capitalism. The Prophet SAW Selim in this hadith, he said to Allah, what do you mean over polyp.
So be dutiful, to Allah, Be mindful, be fearful of Allah give Allah his duty, his rights, and seek your provision moderately, with balance, with balance, don't be aggressive. Don't go aggressively about it, running over everyone who stands in your way, trying to get what you want, by any means possible. That's not how it works. We have a code of ethics, because I've seen a lot recently online, you have Muslim businesses, Muslim organizations, they don't look anything different than non Muslim businesses, and they over promise,
and they play on people's emotions. They manipulate them
in ways that are completely and obviously unethical. Even if your cause is good and great, you still have to use ethical means. You can't just choose part of the revelation and neglect part you have to take all altogether. That's how it works. May Allah subhanaw taala guide us to the right course of action, and except our deeds alone, my friend Amina would want me now to assume you know what must be met here even on when and what Allah Muffaletta at the moment.
