Polycom Salam rahmatullah wa barakato Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah Allah We thank Allah upon all conditions and hamdulillah
the last couple of weeks
that we've left out of that area now we are focusing again, coming back against
acting towards abundance, especially in this latest crisis
smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah, who Allah, Allah he was having his mind. Indeed, it is a very, very great, or should I say important matter, it is something that is close to the hearts of all those who believe, because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has indeed instructed us about the relationship that we should be having with one another, that we are like a single body. And each time or at any time when any organ of the body is in pain, then the entire body should be feeling that pain. And at least we should be reaching out in one way or another, trying to help and assist in whatever way possible. I think what we tend to forget as a
Muslim Ummah, is the solutions that are provided by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Such that they begin with ourselves, you know, it starts with me, it starts with myself improving myself, and a lot of the Muslim men actually don't think that that is a part of the solution. So many of us try to look at solutions by maybe doing something that we think would alleviate their suffering without us having changed anything regarding our own little lies that were leading. So perhaps a person in the in the nightclub might decide, you know what, I'm going to donate 10 pounds and that's, that's good enough. Yes, you did a good deed, Mashallah you donated something, or you might have made a dua for
them, you might have made a do it for them, which is excellent. But what you need to realize is, if you were to get out of that nightclub step out and promise Allah I'm never going to go back, it would have a far bigger impact in the lives of those who are struggling across the globe. And this is taken from the verse of the Quran in Allah Allah use au mobicom in Hatha Yoga, you will not be enforcing him, Allah will not change the plight of a nation until each individual changes himself or herself. So this is step number one, every one of us needs to seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala, called to struggle back home in Hong Kong as a foreign no honey is Salatu was Salam makes
mention of some of the aspects of positive impact of Israel fall. And you know, he makes mention of how he says, I said to them, seek the forgiveness of Allah subhanho wa Taala For indeed he is most forgiving, and then he will do so much for you as a result of this seeking of forgiveness. And one of the things is, by seeking forgiveness, you've improved yourself, if everyone seeks forgiveness and improves themselves, the condition of the oma then improves. So I'd like to actually encourage myself and all the viewers out there to say, let us let us try to become closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala perhaps we can improve on our Salah we can improve on so many other things. And believe me,
you have to understand that Allah subhanho wa Taala has solutions starts from that particular point. So that's point number one. Thereafter, once we've actually tried to improve ourselves and so on, we must also reach out in whatever way we can. So those who are perhaps sitting, you know, in positions of authority would have a little bit more to do when it comes to stopping the suffering of those who are suffering, they would be able to reach out in a far bigger way. But the average Muslim out there, I think we've all reached a point of
helplessness, not hopelessness, we never become hopeless. But we've got we become helpless, helpless in the sense that we realize that the only one who can actually help is Allah subhanho wa Taala there comes a stage and there has come a stage I know, I am following very, very closely what's going on in halab. And at the same time, I definitely do realize that every human being who has a heart would actually feel that this is totally unacceptable. We'd love to see a stop to this and we'd love to see a solution to it. Sometimes like I just said we become so helpless. We've got to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala please please raise your hands into our to Allah subhanho wa Taala
Don't underestimate the power of due up. I've come across people who say So you mean
You're preaching that we've just got to make sure that's not true. It's not just got to make to do is something massive it can change so much. I firmly believe that what's what's happening in terms of evacuations and so on, is the direct result of the People's due and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So don't underestimate it, the people had almost no in terms of, you know, hoping that this would be resolved in a specific way. And here comes news of an evacuation which was a breather to every one of us. You know, I've spent sleepless nights on this. And we've been asking Allah subhanho wa Taala, at the times that Allah subhanho wa Taala has asked us to, you know, or he's told
us that these are the best times to call out to Allah, such as the time of the head Jude, which is a very, very blessed moment, how many of us have actually bothered to get up at that particular time of the day of the night should I say and weep to Allah subhanho wa Taala on behalf of all those who are struggling and suffering across the globe, and and and do that for, you know, continuously like for a long, long time, I think a lot of us are guilty of not doing enough when it comes to making at the right time or getting out of our little comfort zone. It's okay to make do after every Salah if you want or within the Salah or the pollute naza which is also extremely powerful. It is actually a
tsunami of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam this booth and I encourage all the massages across the globe to engage in pollute nasbla as per the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. But if we are able to actually get out of our beddings at a time of the morning when everyone would love to sleep, and we were prepared to make boo boo for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala fulfill the voluntary prayer or the Hajj at the time cried to Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm quite sure that a lot of us will be reassured. And we would be feeling the the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. That having been said, we need to reach deep deep down into our pockets. And we need to give and we need
to give to the right cause to the right people to those who are genuine and legitimate to those who will get what we want to get to the place we want to get it to. So you need to make sure who you're giving is actually legitimate, they are not fly by knights, and they are not people who will usurp or who will use it wrongly. And we need to then you know, give as much as we can because what law he what we are going through at the moment as an oma is very, very sad. And I think it's the result of us. Dis uniting fragmenting, calling each other names, and it's about time we learned less than when it comes to this. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us all ease and goodness. I mean, these are just
a few points that I've touched on. But I'm sure there are so many other points that we could actually benefit from May Allah subhanho wa Taala make things easy for us. And may Allah bless you guys for having raised the awareness particle of
something that maybe you could
something that many, many people now
are seeing the witnessing. How does that play out? For those people who don't understand?
Sorry, I didn't hear you. So clearly. Could you just say the last part again?
The concept of asthma? How is it understood because Allah subhana wa Taala here, find people other than Allah subhanho wa Taala is bringing them mercy.
I think what we need to know is Allah is that a man or a him no matter what so sometimes when we see a situation as a conflict, yes, it hurts us and we should be doing whatever we can to try and help them but when Allah knows that it's better for them to return to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and to enter into the genome and to enter into paradise and to go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Sometimes through His mercy, he takes them away, don't we, when we see people suffering, perhaps when they're critically ill or when something has happened to them and they happen to be terminally ill sometimes we say that you know, they are now gone to the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala
meaning they have passed away. So when a person passes away, it's not necessarily something that is your absolutely unacceptable. Sometimes that was in the eyes of Allah subhanho wa Taala the point of Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala he did not want them to suffer beyond that particular point. So that too could be part of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So sometimes when we see people suffering and struggling, yes, it is a test for all of us. A lot of wants to see what we will do about it and Allah subhanho wa Taala wants to see what they are, how they will react to that particular condition and be part of the mercy of our
Lots of hands on mortality, he gives them a lot of strength. And the strength that he gives them is also a great gift. Imagine there are people who come from a conflict zone, sometimes the way they speak and the way they enjoy is far more than us who are sitting in a comfort zone, we wouldn't be able to even tolerate a mosquito biting us. Yet, when it comes to people who are in this type of zone, they become over a period of time, much more tolerant to this type of or should I say, they take it in a different way than we would that is also part of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So we should never ever become despondent. We should never ever think that you know, that's it,
that's the end and so on of the entire oma, Allah is there and Allah knows why he's doing what he's doing. Trust Him, trust him enough. He is definitely in total and absolute control. He allows things to happen. Some people say, Well, you know, if Allah was so merciful, why does he allow this to happen? Well, I've just explained that sometimes it's the mercy of Allah, He wants to take people away, because ultimately we're all going to go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and we would expect His mercy when we return to Him and we really believe that it's a better place that we're going to go to
for your time, just going off to one thing more in sunlight possible. Just give us a brief 10 seconds. What are some of the dogs that we should be saying at nighttime is any specific blog that we should be saying? You know, there are so many of us that one could actually read I think it's best if we would actually learn them from a good source and and take up so many of these Aditya? Ladies this pollute naskila that we have you know, and there are so many to ask that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam made Allahumma in manage qu la Cava Latina, walk in LA he let in our ohana illness you know, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam himself complained regarding his or
weakness of of you know the state of weakness. Yet he was not in a state of weakness. We are more in a state of weakness and Oh Allah, we are helpless. There is not much we can do here Allah We are waiting for your assistance, your help. And as much as we should be learning the two hours that are soon. Sometimes for some of the people it's good to weep even in the language that you know, you can weep in the English language. It's very, very powerful to actually cry to Allah using words that you've always wanted to actually say to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah.
Allah subhanho wa Taala accepts all your words you're sick and raising the rank and put this on him is not a colossal Baraka love. He said hello and he
