00:00:01--> 00:00:03

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:00:04--> 00:00:50

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu. Was Salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was happy he woman Voila. All praise is due to Allah subhanho wa Taala blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his entire household all his companions May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless them all in May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of us. My brothers and sisters, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to forgive our sins again another beautiful Eve from amongst these eaves of the month of Ramadan a gift for us from Allah subhanho wa Taala we say Allahumma inika one to hit Bulla, 451 Allah, you are most forgiving you love to forgive, so forgive us. I mean, my brothers and

00:00:50--> 00:01:32

sisters in the Sierra tabari according to the narration of Qatada, he says the machine at the time of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, some of them from amongst those in Mecca, the disbelievers they used to think that they were more deserving than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam for the Quran to have come to, and for the deen to have come to and they used to say we are higher than all those who have accepted the faith. We are above all those who have accepted this religion. If there was any goodness in it, we would have been the ones who would have got it first. So Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verse number 11 of Surah tilaka clarifying this and making it

00:01:32--> 00:01:57

clear that Allah subhanho wa Taala is the one who decides he is the one who chooses and these people because they are not following what Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has come with. That is why they are trying to find fault in it. If they were guided to eat, they would realize that it in fact is the truth. Allah says what call Allah vena cava. Medina Manohla mukana

00:01:58--> 00:02:07

masaba Puna LA or even a mere de dooby fossa una if

00:02:10--> 00:02:54

they say that, oh, I have a khadeem according to one narration. Allah subhanho wa Taala says, in fact, according to verse number 11 of salatu wa cough Allah subhanho wa Taala says, the disbelievers told the belief is that if this was in fact good, they would have not, you would have not preceded us in receiving it. We would have been first we are always more deserving. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says because they are not guided to it, they always say these are just folktales of the past. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us lesson. The lesson I learned from this is quite clear that when Allah has bestowed a favor upon someone besides me, I need to acknowledge that it's a favor of Allah

00:02:54--> 00:03:20

for them. I don't need to become jealous I don't need to become envious. I don't need to deny that is actually a favor of Allah subhanho wa Taala people achieve more than I do. And the same applies to every one of us. Some people achieve more than us. So in return we don't need to say this person knows nothing. Perhaps they do know a thing or two, perhaps Allah deep favor them above you and I know Allah subhanho wa Taala helped us learn a lesson from this beautiful verse.

00:03:21--> 00:03:23

Verse number 15 of surah Allah

00:03:24--> 00:04:06

it is reported by Allah hidi narration of buzzworthy Allahu and he says Abu Bakr Siddiq are the Allahu anhu was so grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for many reasons, and obviously it's quite clear to us why he would be grateful, being chosen by Allah subhanho wa Taala to be in the company of Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam from a very young age. From the teenage years they were already friends. It's reported Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah who was 18 years old Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam 20 years old and they were very, very good friends, and they grew up together. Imagine when new Buddha and Prophet would came Abu Bakr Siddiq or the Allahu anhu did not doubt Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam

00:04:06--> 00:04:42

in the least because he knew this man is my friend. I've known him to be the most honest, the best of everyone I've ever known. He is indeed the Messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So obviously he was chosen to be from among those whom we declared today as the best to tread this earth after the prophets of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Who was that? Abu Bakr Siddiq rhodiola one, so he used to be very thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala because it's a virtue that Allah chooses for some above others. So it is reported that Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed verse number 15 of surah,

00:04:43--> 00:04:58

describing the dua made by Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu and this is according to one of the narrations, like I said if numbers are the long run and duration mentioned by Anwar ed in his book known as reasons of revelation or as Babu

00:04:59--> 00:05:00

similarly,

00:05:00--> 00:05:34

What we do know, similar to has been declared in the Quran being made by the prophet Suleiman alayhi salatu salam. And the reason I mentioned this evening, my brothers and sisters, we will listen to it very carefully, we will try and learn it and we will try and adopt it and we will also make the same dad the same supplication because of the power that it has in it. And Allah speaks of the righteous from amongst the believers, Allah speaks of the righteous from amongst the believers and he says, verse number 15, surah have had

00:05:35--> 00:06:20

either bellava I should Bella our ballerina Senato call when he gets to the peak of his age or to maturity to the age of 40. Then he says, He says the following, which means a person when he arrives at the peak of his age, he begins to look back and he starts thanking Allah for all the blessings Allah has bestowed upon him or her. When you get a little bit older, you start looking you see your children, you see your family, you see what Allah has given you, you see the wealth you may have, you see the goodness you have, you see, whatever you have, you compare yourself to those who have less than you. It is something important to do my brothers and sisters, when it comes to material

00:06:20--> 00:06:57

items we are taught on guru in our men who are doing a comb, look at those who have less than you, it will be definitely of assistance to you to be able to be thankful. When you have say for example, 1000 rands and you look at those who have a million, you will think you have nothing. But when you look at those who only have 10 grands or who don't even have that amount of money, you will thank Allah for the little bit that you do have, and this is the gift of Allah. Never look at those who have more than you because you will never be filled. No matter what you have on Earth. There will always be someone who has more than you. So Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us contentment

00:06:57--> 00:07:09

and happiness. That's what it's all about. When you die, you're not going to take all of that with you. You will take your deeds with you. You won't take your Rolls Royce and so on. May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us from vehicles that are overrated. I mean,

00:07:12--> 00:07:55

my brothers and sisters something extremely important that we need to realize this dua he says, I'll be ni and Ashkelon medic, Oh Allah grant me the ability or Allah grant me the ability to thank you to thank you for the gifts that you have bestowed upon me. Subhana Allah, he's not saying Allah, thank you for the gifts. He's saying Allah give me the ability to be thankful because being thankful is not just a statement from your mouth. It is a dedication of a lifetime. When you say oh life Thank you. I've never been to Mr. Salah again, I'm going to please you going to dress appropriately going to abandon sin, going to fulfill all your commands and abstain from prohibitions, that is

00:07:55--> 00:08:23

called gratitude and thankfulness. So he says, oh, Allah, grant me the ability to be truly thankful to you for what you have bestowed upon me. And not just me, but even my parents Subhana Allah, wa Li and my parents as well. Whatever you've given them helped me, give me the ability to be thankful to you for what you've given me and for what you've given to my parents. May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us and then listen to what he says.

00:08:24--> 00:08:27

While I'm at mela solly

00:08:30--> 00:09:15

and grant me the ability to do good deeds that will please you make it easy for me. Do you know there is a draft of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam where he says Oh Allah make it easy for us to engage in that which will please you make it difficult for us to sin or Allah make it hated to us to sin and make it beautified within our hearts to love you that which will please you that which is full of belief. Allahumma Habib, Elena, Eamon was the unifocal novena. Allah make a man and believe loved to us, beautify it in our hearts were karela in El Khufu, coleccion and Allah make detested for us that which is this belief, that which is in gratitude and that which is sinful.

00:09:16--> 00:09:59

That which is sinful, that which is outside the obedience of Allah make it difficult for us May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to achieve his mercy and His goodness. So here he is saying, Oh Allah, grant me the ability to do good deeds and Atmel asylee hunter bar, then listen to what he says. Now, he's Thanks a lot. Oh, he's asking a lot to help him to be thankful for what he has to be thankful for what his parents have been bestowed with and to grant him the ability to do good deeds. Now he goes to his children. He says, Well ask me if he do realty te Allah, this progeny of mine, this offspring, make them good for me. Make them pious for me, Allah make them pious when I die.

00:09:59--> 00:10:00

They

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

Make dua for me, they will pray for me the good that they do will come also as a point of benefit for me, because if I was a parent and I steered them in the right direction, perhaps Allah will grant me a reward for that effort I made. So this was a drop. Brothers and sisters make dua for yourselves, for your parents be they alive are late for the ability to do good deeds for your children make dua ask Allah supplicate call out to him and say, Oh Allah, make them pure, make them good, make them please you help them to abstain from sin. You and I know the pressures of society and community, the environment and the pressure of environment and society has become quite extreme.

00:10:39--> 00:11:26

It's important for us together with the effort to ask Allah to help us so that we can abstain and our children can abstain from the displeasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala then he says in need to be to lie in Nieminen Muslim me. Oh Allah, I returned to you, Toba Toba meaning after repentance you return to Allah is still far is to seek forgiveness and Toba is to return to Allah and quit your bad ways. And then he says in Oh Allah, I am from among those who surrenders. Obviously we all want to try our best to surrender. You call yourself a Muslim and so do I. But we forget what it means to be Muslim. Muslim actually means one who has surrendered to the decree of Allah, who has surrendered to

00:11:26--> 00:12:01

the command of Allah. Have we really surrendered? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us be true muslimeen I mean, so this was number 15 of sudarshana stuff. Like I said, it was the drought Sulayman alayhis salam, there is a narration which makes mention of Abu Bakr Siddiq, or the Allah one having made the same job. But the point we learn that is more important how many of us are prepared to call out to Allah using similar words that have been made mention of more than once in the Quran? I repeat verse number 15 of surah. Tila stuff, it's important we go back we look at the Quran, we read this verse, we memorize it, and we use it to supplicate and to call to Allah subhanho

00:12:01--> 00:12:01

wa Taala.

00:12:03--> 00:12:42

Then we have the beautiful Deen and religion. When people don't listen to what sudo la sala Salam has brought, Allah selects others to listen. If people are going to turn away it's not like the deen is going to stop those who turned away at the time of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, they were at loss. But the deen continued the religion continued in a way that today it has got to us Mashallah we are seated here, the effort of the companions of Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, after that of Rasulullah Salallahu Salam himself. And this is why we are seated here. And this is the the gift of Allah upon us. If we don't come to the house of Allah, it's not like the house is going to be empty. It will be

00:12:42--> 00:13:11

filled by other people. If you are not willing to obey our laws instruction, Allah will replace you with someone else. He says it quite clearly in the Quran. So there was a time when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam had just been returning from Cardiff and the people have thought if as you know, had harmed him, and they decided to throw stones and send their children behind Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam and as he returned, he was reading the Quran in a certain place according to a narration of a ba ba reported by venomous rhodiola. And he says at bottom nephila,

00:13:12--> 00:13:24

it is a specific place by the palm trees mccutchan maka, Rama as the prophets Allah Salam is returning, he was reciting the Quran, reading the beautiful verses of the Quran. And you know what happened?

00:13:25--> 00:13:55

A group of the jinn kind happened to listen to this recitation. And they were so intrigued by it. They were so touched. They were in fact convinced that this is the truth, so much so that they believed in it and they believed in the prophethood of Muhammad Salah Salam was number 29. So to Lakoff, Allah makes mention of what they did when they heard the Quran. What is the sort of Elijah kana phenomenal genius to me, oh,

00:13:56--> 00:14:44

Allah says remember the time when we turn towards you a group of the jinn who are listening to the recitation of the Quran, phylum, dot o si tu when the group of them some duration say they were about nine of them. When they heard when they got there when they were in attendance, they said to each other, keep quiet and listen very carefully. What do I learn from this? Brothers and Sisters when the Quran is being read recited? When the Quran is being played? Remember, be silent. Try and listen carefully listen to the words. These are the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He has spoken these exact words. So listen to them carefully. It's an act of worship, simply to listen to the

00:14:44--> 00:14:56

Quran. Imagine Subhan Allah May Allah subhanahu wa taala help us May Allah subhanho wa Taala Grant has the ability to understand the value of his words. So the jinn themselves was saying listen very attentively

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

for them to do it.

00:15:02--> 00:15:52

During when the prophet SAW Selim had completed the recitation, this group of gin they rushed back to their own people their own kind, wanting them. What did they tell their people? Paulo yamana in Sami Nikita, Zina Mubarak de Moosa, they said, Oh our people, our nation, our group, we have heard a book being recited, that has been revealed after the Prophet Moses Moosa alayhi salatu was Salam May peace be upon him, and they continue to tell their people and to warn them and to inform them that it has in it the truth and so on. The point I learned from it and the point I'm sure we would all learn from it is when we listen to a good message, let us relay the message, at least to our family

00:15:52--> 00:16:33

members, to our children, perhaps to our relatives, and to as many people as possible. Many of us are guilty of sitting in the masjid. Say for example, on a Friday, we've heard a beautiful sermon, we go home, and we're only worried about the the food. It's Friday. Where's the rice? Masha? Allah forgive us. May Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us ease. How many of us actually go home, sit with our family members and tell them today? I heard a very, very good sermon. And I want to mention one point from that, you know, you don't have to sit and give them a long lecture. Some people when they go home, they want to give them a bigger lecture than the Imam did back in the masjid. So the family

00:16:33--> 00:16:35

gets irritated. They say, Oh, no, that's dead again.

00:16:36--> 00:17:12

May Allah forgive us, we need to apply tact and wisdom. Give them one message, the core of what came through or two or three messages a good point. And remember, don't try and use the deen and the religion to your advantage alone. So you never talked to them. But when it comes to a point that you had an argument regarding and now you want up because you just heard the point that proves you are right, then you quickly remember everything, isn't it? And you went back home and told them you see I told you but for the six weeks in advance or before prior to that you were being nailed literally with everything left, right and center being told that you are wrong. And you came back home like

00:17:12--> 00:17:25

the mom didn't say anything. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us. This is the jinn, we are learning a lesson from the jinn when they heard a good message. They immediately went back to their people and said you know what? We heard a beautiful, powerful message.

00:17:27--> 00:18:06

How many of us when we hear a beautiful powerful message, do we take the time, make an effort to go and relate it to others may Allah subhanho wa Taala help us today it's become so easy, you can just burn a CD and distribute it and give it and that would be your share. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us all. So Allah subhanho wa Taala informs us about this in the Quran. And as I've said before, these verses are not there for no purpose, they are there with a reason for us inshallah, to learn lesson from we have thereafter surah Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, it is a surah named after Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. I want to make mention of just one verse in this

00:18:06--> 00:18:50

beautiful surah, which has short verses. And this verse is according to the narration of Abu Yalla, even in a bathrobe, the Allahu anhu states that when Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was being driven out of Makkah, he was very sad. He was doing the he job, Abu Bakr Siddiq of the Allahu anhu with him and he was approaching the cave, you know which cave, the cave that he had gone to in order to get some refuge as he was leaving Mecca. And so, as he got to the cave, he looked back and he saw maca. And he said the following he said oh maca. You are the most beloved to me. You are the most beloved to me. Had it not been for your people to drive me out. I would have never gone out.

00:18:51--> 00:19:33

Mohamed Salah Salam is now addressing Mecca saying oh maca. You are the most beloved land to me, had it not been for your people to have driven me out, I would have never left this place. Now obviously this was a plan of a lot because you have Madina munawwara which also earned its virtue thereafter. This was prior to the earning of the virtue of Madina munawwara it was upon the hegira but Makkah is also one of the most sacred places on earth, in fact, the most sacred place on Earth. When it comes to the value of the massage it happens to be a Masjid al Haram in Makkah, Tomoko Rama, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all the ability to go there and to frequent the place I mean,

00:19:34--> 00:19:52

with the right intentions that it's some people go shopping and some people go Mashallah for Amara, and some people marry the two, I hope inshallah we always have the correct intention. It's not wrong to shop, but it's wrong to make that your primary intention, that's all. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala help us. So, Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed versus

00:19:53--> 00:20:00

giving comfort to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam at that point telling him you're going to come back here Subhana Allah Subhana Allah

00:20:00--> 00:20:09

Amazing. He knew that I'm going to come back to Mecca at some stage because Allah subhanho wa Taala tells him and this is verse number 13 of Surat Muhammad. Allah says, worker,

00:20:10--> 00:20:13

karate I shall hear I shall do.

00:20:15--> 00:20:18

poetic allottee of Rajat

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

alakina, fella.

00:20:22--> 00:21:06

How many cities or towns have there been, that have been more powerful than this one that drove you out, and we have destroyed them and nobody has helped them. Which means Don't worry, these people cannot be more powerful than the others whom we've already destroyed and made an example of Subhana Allah, nobody is too powerful for Allah subhanho wa Taala, no matter how mighty a person thinks he or she is, remember, above all might is the Almighty. May Allah subhanho wa Taala. grant us the ability to understand that so that we humble ourselves for him, and for his sake. I mean, so this was a beautiful prophecy. In fact, it was information and it was comforting Muhammad Sallallahu

00:21:06--> 00:21:46

Sallam to say, Don't worry, today they might have driven you out. There is a purpose why Allah intended for that hegira to occur. And there is a reason why Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam had to go to Madina, munawwara and there is a reason why he came back to Makkah to Makkah Rama and there is a reason why he did not stay in Makkah thereafter, but he returned and he passed away in Madina, munawwara May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us all. Then we have sudo will fetch sudo will fetch is a beautiful surah. And it's all connected to one major incident and that was the Treaty of Arabia. The Muslim men decided that they wanted to go to fulfill the Amara, the minor pilgrimage, what we

00:21:46--> 00:22:10

spoke about a few minutes ago, their intention was solely to please Allah, they wanted to go. And it was a time of no good relation between them and the people of Makkah. They wanted to go because that was the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And they said, Let's go without much weaponry. We don't want to go and fight. We will go to Mecca, we will talk to the people of Mecca. And we will tell them, we just want to do their ombre and we want to depart.

00:22:12--> 00:22:49

So when they arrive to a place called fit ABN, they stopped this just outside Mecca, Tomoko Rama, the Muslims, quite a few, perhaps 1400, approximately according to some of the narrations. And they paused there, they stopped, and they send to this man of need a founder of the Allahu anhu, to see the chiefs of flesh in order to talk to them to tell them, Look, we are 1400 Muslims out here, we've come without weapons, we've come not to fight, we've come just for the house of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We want to do our ombre, and we want to, you know, fulfill this minor pilgrimage, and we will depart. Going back to Madina munawwara. So as a founder of the Allahu anhu.

00:22:50--> 00:23:26

went in. He didn't, he did not return quickly. He didn't come back. In fact, it took more time than they had expected. And the rumors spread that he was murdered, they murdered him. It was a rumor, but the rumor was very strong. So Mohammed salatu salam gathered his companions, and he told them, we do not have weaponry, but we, if our man is killed in there, we will all fight in order to retaliate or revenge in order to get back for what they have done in terms of atrocity and murder against a man who was just an ambassador.

00:23:28--> 00:24:10

So they were at a tree known as a Shara. It's known as a shadow because it is the tree a huge tree in Arabia, and the prophets Allah Salam was under the tree, and a color called out that you need to pledge allegiance to Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam that you will not run away, and that you will fight and that if this happens to be true, we will fight and we will not run away. We will not turn our backs. So each one of them came. Every single one of them came one after the other. They pledged allegiance to Mohammed salatu salam, and they said under the tree, that we will not run away. If this is the case, even though we don't have much weaponry, we will make sure that we obey the

00:24:10--> 00:24:25

instruction that you deliver to us. Tell us what it is you want us to do. Consider it done. Subhan Allah, so Allah subhanho wa Taala thereafter, revealed verses and I'm going to just move a little bit forward verse number 18 of the surah

00:24:26--> 00:24:29

Allah cada uno de la hora de la mina

00:24:30--> 00:24:34

Nakata, Dasha shadow, Fanny Murphy obey Him,

00:24:36--> 00:24:38

Salah Sakina Darlene

00:24:41--> 00:24:47

kariba Allah has become pleased with those who pledged allegiance to you under the tree.

00:24:48--> 00:24:59

Allah has become pleased with them. Those who pledged allegiance to you under the tree. Allah knows what was in their hearts and Allah is giving them good news of

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

very near victory, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us victory at all times. I mean, so this verse was revealed after the incident of a BIA when they were leaving going back to Madina, munawwara without having made their O'Meara. So what happened later on, as man of now founder of the Allahu anhu appeared, and it was clear manifests that he was not murdered and it was just a rumor. So obviously, this pledge of allegiance was just a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Secondly, they sat with the co founder of Qureshi and they struck a deal. They signed a treaty known as the Treaty of Abia, what was it? We are not going to fight. We have a truce. We have a ceasefire, and we're

00:25:39--> 00:25:40

going to have peace for 10 years.

00:25:41--> 00:26:20

So when they were writing the clauses from among the Muslim in, the scribes were writing one of them was Alabama Taliban, the few other of the scribes. They were writing when they wrote Bismillah Ar Rahman AR Rahim, the co founder of qure said, Take it out. We don't know who is Rahman we don't know is Rahim. We don't acknowledge anything. We want you to write Bismillah lahoma. Then they wrote, so that they looked at the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they were reluctant, but Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam told him, no problem to that. So they deleted and they did it as the kuffaar ad intended. A little bit later, it was written there. This is a treaty from Mohammed Rasulullah sallallahu taala

00:26:20--> 00:26:59

they said no, take it out. You are not Rasulullah sallallahu taala they said if we acknowledged you were the messenger, we wouldn't be having this problem at all. You've got to say Mohammed bin Abdullah. So the meaning were reluctant so much so that one narration says that I would not be Taliban the companions refused. We will not delete it. So Mohammed Salah Sallam said, Okay, show me where it is written, and I will rub it off. So pan Allah Subhana Allah, because they didn't want to deny or to delete the fact that it says here Rasulullah so the momineen were upset because they saw every clause that the Muslims had written and suggested these people modified to their advantage.

00:26:59--> 00:27:32

Let me give you an example. Just by way of example. They said anyone from Medina who comes to Makkah, we're not going to send them back. But anyone from Morocco who comes to Medina, you must send them back. How fair is that? unfair. But Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam said no problem, write it down Subhan Allah and at the end, they struck the treaty. They struck the deal. And the momineen were told you are not going to make Amara this year write it down. They wrote it down. You will come back next year. That means we're in ham. Imagine you arrive in Jeddah and they send you back home with lamella not do that to us. How would you feel?

00:27:33--> 00:28:12

May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us? That would not happen today. But at that time, this is what happened. They arrived right at the outskirts of Mecca and they were sent back these people were meant to be the custodians at the time. But what happened is Allah subhanho wa Taala intended something huge, something big. The Prophet salallahu Salam was faced with Omar Abdullah Pavarotti Allahu anhu, as they were leaving returning to Mecca to Medina, without having made an Amara, having struck a deal where there was going to be no war there was going to be peace from now on. And at the same time, all the clauses were in favor of the machete kina maka, Amara Bill hardtops is or

00:28:12--> 00:28:41

messenger sallallahu Sallam and this is a narration there are several narrations one of them is actually Mustafa con la narration of silent nanny for the long run. And the other one is a another narration made mentioned of in so many books of Hadith and it's something very common regarding the issue of the day BIA and what happened thereafter. So, he says saladna Hanif says that Omar will Katara the Allahu anhu said, or messenger aren't we on the right path? You said Yes, we are.

00:28:42--> 00:28:57

Isn't it that if we die we go to Paradise if they die, they don't we said yes. So then why do we have to agree with all these clauses that are actually detrimental? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told him Omar, I am the messenger of Allah and Allah will never let me down.

00:28:59--> 00:29:15

So Allah who heard it, and he slowly walked to Abu Bakr Casa de la and when he told him the same thing, he asked him the same questions. Abu Bakr Siddiq, Allah and who uttered the same words this is Omar, he is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam and Allah will not let him down.

00:29:16--> 00:29:21

And now they are departing, and a lot of views the verses the opening verses of surah

00:29:22--> 00:29:26

victory. Allah says in Fattah

00:29:29--> 00:30:00

Bina, indeed we have granted you a clear victory. So Omar, Abdullah Han is shocked. He says, All messenger you are reciting this verse to us, is this really victory? The prophet SAW Selim says yes, it is Subhana Allah, so he was quiet and silent. Guess what happened. It resulted in the spread of Islam to the corners of the globe because of the peace that was there. A few years later, the victory of Makkah happened and amazingly, it was indeed, the first step of

00:30:00--> 00:30:27

Victory. What a beautiful surah. This entire surah in its entirety, was revealed upon the return of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam from today via as he was coming to Madina, munawwara it's interesting for us to go and look through the pages of the Quran and see the gift of Allah subhanho wa Taala the gift that he bestowed upon the believers, but I have a lesson that I have learned and I'd like you to shoot to to share this or I'd like to share it with you.

00:30:28--> 00:31:13

Sometimes things appear to be so negative in our lives so negative, but our victory is actually through those very things. Had we not passed through that level rock bottom, we would never have got to the top. Sometimes you are working somewhere. This is an example that just came to my head now. You're working somewhere and you are fired unceremoniously unfair. If you take it graciously, and you go out, perhaps Allah got you out of that job because he wanted you a year later to get a job that had 10 times the salary. Perhaps he wanted you to work on your own to open your own business so that you could be bigger than this the man who you who you work for and you became his supplier two

00:31:13--> 00:31:52

years down the line. It's possible it has happened but do not become depressed when something negative seems to have happened. When you are a person who's trying to please Allah and you know that you are trying your best. That is Allah subhanho wa Taala believe that he has a better plan for you believe that victory is near, no matter how long it takes, but it will come by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala true Momin is never depressed by negative things that come in their direction. We need to be like kites, the more the wind blows against us, the higher we are able to fly. Remember this without that adverse when we will actually drop May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us an

00:31:52--> 00:32:18

understanding this victory of Mecca and these verses of victory informing Mohammed salatu salam about what is to come at the time when Omar Abu Qatada the Allahu says, I was so sad. I felt rock bottom that look I'm a powerful man. I'm standing here I've pledged I'm ready to fight. And Mohamed Salah Salam looks at me and says, turn back we are going you mean without the without the camera.

00:32:20--> 00:33:00

What? We are powerful people here man. We want to get in. He says that's it. I'm the Messenger of Allah. Allah will not let me down. He obeyed because it was the messenger. When he went back he was told that was your victory. The fact that you signed that treaty, it was the biggest victory that was to come. And Allah speaks about it in this beautiful verse. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness and May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in every single way. The other narration is that of him Nabil Hatem, Salah matignon, Aqua, the Allahu anhu also makes mention of how he says we were lying down and the cola came out to call to pledge allegiance when we pledged allegiance later on a

00:33:00--> 00:33:20

lot of universes to say all of you, I am pleased with you. How many were they? Approximately 1400 Allah says, I'm happy with you. I'm pleased with you imagine the status of those. The status of those who pledged allegiance May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us be people who at least can get up for solitude

00:33:21--> 00:33:59

on the day of eat Mashallah you know what happens in Ramadan Mashallah, we are so hyper we think a lot hamdulillah we are up for failure that's because of the school that was just before that's because we were there for the meal I hope we've read the Salah to come the day of eat a lot of us say what time is eat Salah. And when we find out it's late we say okay, I'll sleep up to that time half an hour before we rushing half of us some of us not half some of us might even be running late for Salah to lead Come on let's make it different this year inshallah we'll be there early. We sit in from Salatin fashion and we don't depart. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all May we be from

00:33:59--> 00:34:18

We too will be resurrected by the will of Allah with Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam May Allah bless us all wa sallahu wa salam wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhan Allah Subhana Allah homopolymeric Masha to Allah Allah Elantra, Sophie
