was an AVI ma alpha,

alpha in the fall heavy, thick eatable law he has.

00:02:14--> 00:02:19

He had he had a beginner Mohammed in Salalah. While he was early he was

00:02:20--> 00:03:08

shot one or more data to wakulla modesetting bedarra are collaborating Bada, all praises due to Allah. We praise Him, we seek his aid and we ask for his forgiveness. We seek refuge and protection and unlock from the evils of ourselves and the evil consequences of our actions. Whomsoever Allah guides, none can lead astray. And whomsoever law leaves to go astray, non can guide, I testify that none has the right to be worshipped, that none has the right to our ultimate love and devotion but Allah subhanho wa Taala alone. And I testify that Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his servant and His messenger or you who believe.

00:03:09--> 00:03:53

Fear Allah as he should be feared and die not except in a state of submission to your Lord as Muslims, all 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 allies have and all watch 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 you 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

00:03:53--> 00:04:08

that oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. 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 an every bit as misguidance.

00:04:09--> 00:04:19

Musa alayhis salam and his people, the children of Israel, they were chased out of Egypt by for their own the Pharaoh and his and his troops.

00:04:20--> 00:04:25

Then musante he said him and his companions and his disciples,

00:04:27--> 00:04:32

they reached a dead end, they ended up at the shores of the Red Sea, there was no escape.

00:04:34--> 00:04:47

And as soon as for Allen on the other side, or the Pharaoh and his troops on the other side, show up the companions of Mousavi Salaam, they realize that's the end, there's no escape. They've been cornered.

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

They found themselves stuck. There's no way out after this.

00:04:53--> 00:04:54

Because that's what they see.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

According to the material perception of the world

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

The done, there's no escape. The ocean is right ahead of them.

00:05:06--> 00:05:16

The Pharaoh and his troops are right behind them and he is bent on annihilating them wiping them out. That's it because he had threatened them before and they defied him.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

So they were taken over by fear and panic and despair.

00:05:24--> 00:05:37

And Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about this in the Quran. So Allah says philomath Allah, Allah gem, and if all else herbal mousse in llamado acun when both parties could could see each other,

00:05:39--> 00:05:43

meaning the companions of most at least, they can see the pharaoh on his troops.

00:05:44--> 00:05:49

They said, that's it. We are caught. There's no escape. We're done.

00:05:50--> 00:06:03

Musashi Salaam was operating from a completely different dimension. Why? Because that's what faith offers those who believe in Allah. That's the advantage. That's the edge.

00:06:04--> 00:06:08

So most le cinemas, Allah mentions call a Cal

00:06:10--> 00:06:24

in BC Dean Mashallah Sam sees the exact physical material reality as his people. The ocean is ahead of us. The Pharaoh and his troops are behind us and there is no escape. We're trapped.

00:06:25--> 00:06:50

But Masada his Salaam sees beyond the material reality, his perception, his understanding transcends the physical immediate reality that we have at our disposal, he sees more than that he sees the full spectrum of reality. Why? Because that's what faith offers us. Because Allah Subhana, Allah created us limited. We're limited in our perception.

00:06:51--> 00:07:11

We're limited in what we can see what we can hear what we can touch, what we can perceive, we are limited in our intellect. We can't understand everything, we can't figure out everything, we can't see everything. And we can't hear all sounds. And we can't process all information. We're limited in that capacity in our capacity.

00:07:12--> 00:07:25

So lots of analytic data in order for us to be able to connect to the full spectrum of truth, despite our deficiencies. Allah subhanaw taala offers us faith. And that's the world of the unseen

00:07:26--> 00:07:27

belief.

00:07:28--> 00:08:13

Animal Hi, that's why last minute, Allah tells us what we cannot figure out on our own. And that's why Allah subhanaw taala sent revelation. That's why the Almighty, the All Merciful sent prophets and messengers to inform us. And that's part of what we are supposed to take from the revelation of the Almighty, as we read the Koran. And as we read the traditions of the Prophet, sallAllahu, alayhi wasallam, we are supposed to, that's part of what we are supposed to take from that. It's not just some theory that we keep our heads, and we put some titles to it. And then we brag about it and feel good about ourselves that I have learned this, I have memorized this. I know this, and I know that

00:08:14--> 00:09:02

and other people don't know as much as I know, that's not the point. This knowledge is practical. What you find in suits, in fact, is practical. And sort of Al Baqarah is practical, and sort of courses is practical and Salton nurse is practical. It's to help us navigate this ocean of life, because we don't have all the data that we need. So Allah subhanaw taala offers us beyond our immediate reality, he gives us this edge edge. And it's only through this kind of understand understanding that we can put our immediate reality and life itself in perspective, we can understand what's going on. So when you are trapped, when you're going through some tragedy or some

00:09:02--> 00:09:49

hardship, and you see all the doors a shot in your face, you're able to put that in perspective, to put it in context and transcend it and see beyond that, and that's exactly what Moosa and his disciples were going through alayhis salaam. So they were trapped physically, like one of us, goes broke, right? We go bankrupt, we run out of finances, or we put together a project and it falls apart and doesn't work, or we have a plan or a member of our family needs medication. And we know we don't have enough for that treatment, some emergency pops up and we we don't have the preparation. And we feel stuck. We say why is this happening? What am I going to do with this?

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

And there's no hope there's no source of of relief. I can't see any any any, any any sign of belief. I can see I can't see the light

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

At the end of the tunnel, that's exactly what they were going through. But musalla he said, he doesn't have an answer. He doesn't know how they're gonna get out of this. But he knows for sure that we're going to get out of this. He knew he had no doubt he had certainty that we are going to get out of this how he has no clue.

00:10:22--> 00:11:07

Because we humans, we don't only learn by direct engagement with the physical and the material world. There is something else to life. There is more to the truth, and Musashi Salaam was acting from that paradigm from that dimension. So he says he's all calling he's, he's confident. He's not even shaken by the the tight spot they were caught in. When his companions panicked, he tends to them in all certainty, and in all, assuredness, and peace and tranquility, and he says, No, no, Our Lord is with us. My Lord is with me. He's going to guide me to a way out.

00:11:08--> 00:11:16

He's going to make us a way out. That's how he doesn't know. Up until that moment, he had no clue. But he knows with a law,

00:11:17--> 00:11:34

everything is possible. Everything is possible. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after the Battle of a hood, where it had been at the beginning some sort of a victory for the Muslims, but it turned against them towards the end. 70 of the great companions were martyred.

00:11:36--> 00:11:38

And it was some sort of a tragedy.

00:11:40--> 00:12:25

And 70 were martyred. But many among the Muslims were wounded, physically fatigued, because they were surrounded by the people have arranged they were overtaken, and it was such a difficult time. So they were dragging themselves or preparing themselves to drag themselves back to Medina will arise had already left the scene or the battlefield back to Mecca. Someone comes within us to the Prophet Mohammed Salah Salem and his companions telling them that Polish regretted the fact that they left back to Mecca before finishing you off, and now they change their mind they're coming back. And the Muslims are already outnumbered, they already tired, fatigued, and the spirit is not

00:12:25--> 00:12:26

that high.

00:12:28--> 00:12:31

And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam with the companions,

00:12:32--> 00:12:54

they pull themselves together and they march south, South, on the route of Mecca towards Mecca, to where the army of polish is and is meant to be marching to meet them. And a lot of data reveals about this. Allah says in the Quran Allah smart Allah says Allah Athena Karla Luna, so in the nasaka, Gemma Hola, como

00:12:55--> 00:12:56

una La Jolla, Milwaukee.

00:12:57--> 00:13:05

They are the people who somebody who someone told them people have gathered troops to to to destroy you

00:13:07--> 00:13:08

in order to scare them.

00:13:10--> 00:13:18

But they said, and that's not just a statement, that's their attitude. They said Hezbollah whenever

00:13:19--> 00:14:02

they say a lot is enough, a lot sufficient for us. He's gonna he's the best one to take care of us. He's the best one to take care of us. It's not just a word we say no. Today, when someone upsets us, we say has been alone at Milwaukee. Like it's just, it's some sort of a statement that we munch on. And it has no significance has no meaning has no reality in our hearts, but has been a lot of noise enough for me. I don't care. That's it. That's it. I don't care. I know I'm taking care of I know it's gonna be all right. I'm sure I have no doubt about it. That's what it means a law is sufficient for me. That's it. When I'm ill Joaquin and there's no one to take care of my affairs better than

00:14:02--> 00:14:04

him. I hand it over to him.

00:14:05--> 00:14:16

That's what faith kills us. And that's what all the prophets and messengers and the great Muslims throughout history that's why that's the example they they displayed. Apollo only had our stuff for a while you were looking for stuff

00:14:24--> 00:14:56

hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salatu salam ala Sayyidina Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi and you may you know when everything falls in place, and when we have the finances, and we are prepared. Everything everyone can claim to be trustful of a lot we can say I trust a lot. I trust the law and I have to work cool. I have I have reliance on a lot. I rely on a lie and I have no doubt I'm good everyone. Everyone can say that at times of ease, right?

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

But it's when we are tested

00:15:00--> 00:15:20

When we are out of sorts, when we are when something happened, which we are not prepared for, and we have no means to handle, when we run out of all the means possible to do something, or change the situation, that's when true believers in a lot show up.

00:15:21--> 00:15:33

That's when faith is tested. That's it. So when things happen, and we freak out, and we lose our balance, and we panic, and we start running around begging people, and

00:15:34--> 00:15:45

using inappropriate means impermissible means to get ourselves out of the predicament that we find ourselves in, when we frantically tried to find a solution.

00:15:46--> 00:15:54

And that's a clear statement that Not yet Not yet faith has not taken root yet enough.

00:15:56--> 00:16:03

But the true believers are the ones when they are tested. And they don't know the answers. And they don't have the solutions.

00:16:05--> 00:16:07

All they have all they have

00:16:08--> 00:16:15

is their faith in Allah is their unwavering belief in Allah. And what helps them do that

00:16:16--> 00:16:25

is their knowledge of Allah, that they know their Lord. They know that he's the Almighty, he's an Aziz.

00:16:27--> 00:16:45

They know that he's our man or him. He's the Merciful, the Most Merciful. They know he's an Elohim. He's the old knowing that he knows what we're going through. He knew it before it came into existence. They know that he's a Hakeem, he's the wise the most wise.

00:16:46--> 00:17:06

They know that he's in charge of everything. And nothing happens without his permission. And without his wisdom, and without his mercy they live in that is not just lip service that they keep murmuring and talking about. It is something that they live, it's a reality in their heart. And it's a lens through which they see the world.

00:17:08--> 00:17:10

So when things get really dark,

00:17:11--> 00:17:32

and situations tighten up on them, these people, that's when their trust shows, that's when they are at their ease and at their best. Why? Because that's the time they relinquish their attempts to take control and be in charge of things. And they hand it over to Allah.

00:17:34--> 00:18:08

And they know once you truly hand things for Allah truly from your heart, you truly, completely depend on a lot and rely on him and you realize you're helpless, and he's the one who can fix things. Truly you feel that that's when Allah responds because Allah once a broken heart before him, a humble heart before him, not a big ego, or an array or an arrogant heart that thinks I can fix things. I can figure it out. I can deal with whatever it is.

00:18:10--> 00:18:14

Because that's arrogance, that's ego which takes us away from Allah.

00:18:16--> 00:18:17

And that's what makes us strong.

00:18:18--> 00:18:24

That's what made profit nurhaliza and I'm strong. Profit O'Brien

00:18:25--> 00:18:55

and all the prophets and messengers, that's what made prophet Yusuf Alayhi Salam handle all the predicaments that he went through, and he had trust in Allah. He knew Allah was guiding his way and the prophecies lm clarified this in a hadith in Sahih Muslim what Allah says Allah messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I Japan The Emory movement in a Mullah hula hula hoop is amazing. It's it's mind boggling. The state of a believer is something that is astonishing.

00:18:57--> 00:19:24

That everything that happens turns out to be good for him or her everything. And what's the secret trust, you all know the finish the rest of the head of the remainder of the day, but there's one narration one version of this hadith also inside a Muslim where the prophets Allah says, lay a Kabbalah, hoody abdiel, mini Acaba and Illa. Allah subhanaw taala does not write down something for his servant or upon his servant, except that it is good for him or her.

00:19:25--> 00:19:31

Trusting a few have that that's all what Allah wants from us that level of trust.

00:19:32--> 00:19:33

And then the magic is gonna happen.

00:19:36--> 00:19:53

Allah opened up the ocean for musala his setup, Allah split the moon for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and lifted him up to the heavens in the journey of Alaska and then America right. And a law called Ibrahim even to be thrown into the fire and it was peace and cool for him.

00:19:55--> 00:20:00

I'm not saying we should be seeking miracles, but I'm just saying or what it takes.

00:20:00--> 00:20:38

His genuine true trust in Allah we don't need to claim anything about our faith. We don't need to show any. We just need to be there and put our trust in Allah. Abdullah blood vessel the Allah when he says to what cool is the reality of faith being able to put your trust in Allah truly that's the reality of faith. We ask Allah, Allah to grant us the true sense of trust in Him and reliance upon his help and his aid and his might allama Philomena wouldn't want me nuts when a Muslim you know when a Muslim Allah here remain humble and watch a llama Filipina don't open our eyes will often FMD now with a bit of dominance or Nigel COVID Catherine, Allah homophily now what do you Wiley Deena?
