Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah, Allah, he was happy he aged man. I mean, my brothers, my sisters, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam bear in mind, best of creation most noble of all prophets, Allah chose for him to be born in a city and at a time when there was no advancement in terms of electricity, running water, the internet, mobile phones, motor vehicles, air aircraft, space jets, whatever else they might have been, but Allah favored him above everyone when he was born, his father had already preceded it is not because Allah is upset with you that you're an orphan. It is not because Allah does not love you, and that's why he took your father away. No,
he perhaps he loves you more. And as nubby Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam grew a little bit older, when he was sent to halimeda. Saudia at a certain time, jabril alayhis salam came to him, there was the incident of the washing of the heart at that particular juncture when he was very young of the Prophet Muhammad, sallAllahu, Alayhi, wasallam and Subhanallah he faced a difficulty or hardship where he had to come back to his mother. A little while later, his mother passed away. He was only six years old. According to some of the narrations. He stayed with his mother for about a year. According to the narrations, if he had come back at the age of five, most of the time he did
not spend with his mother. And when he did, the mother then passed away when he was six years old, still very young, no father, no mother, that is the most loved unto Allah. That difficulty and hardship did not mean that Allah didn't love him. Same applies to any one of us. If you faced hardship, difficulty, something happened to you. Remember something it does not mean Allah does not love you, perhaps he loves you more than others, take it in your stride and get closer to him. thank Allah for whatever you do have the hardships and challenges were faced by everyone. So panela more so those who are loved by Allah more in the law either. Bab nipt Allah, when Allah loves a slave, he
tests him more and more and more, you will gain closeness to Allah and you realize the best thing you ever have is your relationship with your maker that will never let you down, the more the hardship, we will not entertain shape on we will never let him make us lose hope. You might have lost your job. You might have lost so many things. You might have lost family members, like I said, your parents. Let's look at what happened next. The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his grandfather takes custody of him looks after him. And two years later, his grandfather passes away as well. Imagine the age of eight, you've already lost three of the people who were taking care
of you, one before you were born, the other one when you were six years old. And now a third one. When you're eight years old. May Allah make it easy for all of us. I think many of us would think that perhaps Allah doesn't love you. Allah doesn't care for you. It's the opposite. Our luck is for you. Allah alone will take care of you. You might go through a few difficult years, but trust me, the victory is coming.
