Allahu wa Salatu was salam, O Allah, Allah, may Allah be

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

the enemy.

00:01:52 --> 00:02:43

We praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless his entire household as well. And all his companions and May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless every single one of us, brothers and sisters in Islam, the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala is tremendous, tremendous. It is amazing how every one of us is loved dearly by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But sometimes we become a little bit sad, we become saddened, we become people who are despondent without realizing that Allah loves us. He knows why he does to us what he does to us more than we would ever understand, and it is out of his love that he

00:02:43 --> 00:03:26

does it. Come what may we have uttered the Shahada? We have declared there is none worthy of worship besides Allah, we try our best to worship Allah alone without displeasing him. Wherever we have faltered, we try our best to turn back as soon as possible. It hurts us where we have transgressed against Allah subhanho wa Taala. Any one of us whenever we've done something wrong, we feel within our hearts at some stage that you know what I did was wrong. May Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us a person who's committed adultery, a person who might have engaged in some form of wrong in the past. And as soon as they've done the wrong the man within them will make them think for a moment

00:03:26 --> 00:04:07

what I did what is wrong was wrong, and I should not be doing it. The same applies to those who might be we in terms of obeying Allah's instructions, which have nothing to do with worshiping those besides Allah. But it has to do with an instruction to me and you that sometimes we have not yet fulfilled in a manner that we would or we are required to fulfill. Take a look at the dress code, we can always improve men and women, including myself included, we can improve on our dress code for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we know the requirement of the Sharia. Sometimes we happen to be a little bit weak in that regard, but we know deep down that I need to do better than what I

00:04:07 --> 00:04:45

am doing. And when we say dress code for your information in Islam, the dress that is spoken about is not only clothing that you wear, but even your character and conduct is part of your clothing. It makes you up as a person, a person who's wearing some clothing that might not even look so expensive. For example, if their character is immaculate, brilliant, very good, exemplary. They are beautiful all the time. They are very very good looking. They are their company is warm. People will not be bothered What are you wearing? They say wow, I met this brother and you know Mashallah, I felt so good. They're not gonna say you know, he wore this and he wore that unless they are cheap,

00:04:45 --> 00:04:59

may Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. So the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala for us makes us feel when we have committed a sin that we've done something wrong and the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us feel when we've done something right and

00:05:00 --> 00:05:41

Correct and when we've worshipped Allah subhanho wa Taala that what I've done here is really only from the favor of Allah upon me. I'm so happy. Take a look at it. A person who gets up for Salah tahajjud and we've always said, try that out my brothers and sisters, even if it means once, just a one off. That's a start. You will find yourselves once a month, then once a week. Then Mashallah twice a week and then you will fall in love with it so much that it becomes a habit. May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless us so when we get up for the hygiene or even if we just get up for salado federal and we fulfill it properly bearing in mind I'm doing this solely for the pleasure of Allah

00:05:41 --> 00:06:20

subhanho wa Taala. Immediately we begin to feel the coolness the calmness within ourselves, ourselves. I tell myself y'all I'm getting up solely for your sake. It's just for you had it not been for you y'all I would be sleeping I won't be asleep until whatever time but it's your instruction while I'm getting up you're watching me. Allah be pleased with me. Be happy with me. I'm trying my best Yala every one of us should be feeling the same. And then when we fulfilled our Salah tell me how the day goes you feel so good Mashallah, if you miss the Salah, how do you feel? You really feel like oh no, I missed the Salah. I really shouldn't have done that I need to fulfill it.

00:06:20 --> 00:07:04

Obviously the Hadith says Manama and Salatin owner sia folio sala de la cara who ever sleeps over a Salah. You know, they did not plan to sleep over it, but they slept over it, meaning they miss it because of sleep, or sheer forgetfulness out of human nature. The Hadith says they should fulfill it as soon as they remember. So say for example, I set my clock now Allah subhanho wa Taala makers from those who can really get up on that clock beep sometimes people the clock keeps on going, and they just keep on snoring. May Allah subhanho wa Taala safeguard us, may Allah protect us. And so sometimes we hit that club and next thing we know the sun is already up and everything is missed. So

00:07:04 --> 00:07:28

we asked Allah subhanho wa Taala, to make us from those whom we set the clock as soon as it reads, we sit up, you sit down, and you can turn it off. Don't go back to it solely for the sake of Allah tried Allah it works. Don't go and say Allah just for your sake, this sleep I'm forsaking because Allah describes those whom he loves and the believers in Surah, the surgeon and he says one of their qualities, one of the qualities of those who are going to get gentlemen

00:07:29 --> 00:07:34

and those who we've prepared a very good provisions in paradise for that job.

00:07:50 --> 00:08:36

Their size for safe their babies getting up at night for the sake of a lot calling out to him with hope and fear and they sin from what Allah has given them. So two qualities are mentioned here. One is those who get up at night to read Salah brothers and sisters minimum is Salah, this would be even more than that, but the minimum and those who spend Why is spending mentioned here let me tell you, we contaminate our hearts with the love of what Allah has created. And when we do that, the love of the Creator diminishes. The more we love materialistic items, the lesser capacity is to love the creator of all that. So this is why when we have wealth we think we work hard to earn a little bit

00:08:36 --> 00:09:14

when we've earned it, Mashallah we will send it in a halal way Allah says that's how you earn my pleasure. Imagine, have you ever thought that worship in Islam is not just your relation with Allah, but Allah says, to worship me, you need to be good to your fellow human beings, by the worshipping of Allah Subhana Allah Allah. So, if a person loves the wealth to the degree that they hold on to it, and everything becomes you know all about money, sometimes this overtakes, you know, people who are very materialistic, and without them realizing have become materialistic, you know, when we go through economic hardship, then as we are coming out of it, we become so materialistic that, in

00:09:14 --> 00:09:44

figures wise, we probably earning more than we ever were, but in singleness, we've become the most that we ever were before. May Allah protect us it happens, so to spend from that which Allah has given you in terms of Zakah and also some voluntary wealth that we might be giving for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. You find someone in desperate need and you've spent a little bit and you've given out, bearing in mind the Allah you're going to give me you know, Allah says, when you give, I will give you

00:09:45 --> 00:09:46

some Han Allah and

00:09:47 --> 00:09:59

Allah or son of Adam saying, Allah will spend on you Subhana Allah, it will be sent upon you. You live, I'll give you more. But the thing is, it has to be with your kin with conviction without conviction. You think he he

00:10:00 --> 00:10:11

Like, shouldn't they give me this try to see if it works. And then we give, Allah says you give a little give and do not be a person who wants to give absolutely everything like Allah says, Allah Allah.

00:10:13 --> 00:10:16

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah.

00:10:26 --> 00:11:09

Do not keep your hand on your neck in such a way that you do not spend money Don't hold back so badly that you are known as stingy and your quality of stinginess, is now becoming clear. And don't spend so much that you know, sit regretting a, I had a lot, all of it, but be a balanced person, you must know, okay, I'm going to give for the sake of Allah Here it is. That is through the love of Allah, Allah loves us, and he puts it in our hearts to reach out to those in need. So this is why it's important for us and I know every one of us, there is a certain chord within us that if that code was struck, it would definitely sound the whole of singing now, for example, some people might

00:11:09 --> 00:11:45

see a destitute person. And they might say, no, this person looks okay. Carry on. When they see someone about a hand and say, Okay, this person is okay, then they carry on, then they see a certain thing, Allah kept it such that these receivers, you know, your eyes received the images your ears received the sound, and the and everything, and, and so on when you see and when you felt and when you heard, and now there comes a stage where there's someone that is so desperately need. And you know, whoa, this level here is quite bad, it strikes a chord. And when that is struck automatically, you think, hey, let me reach out even if it means a few dollars. So each one of us we cannot say we

00:11:45 --> 00:12:24

will never ever spend none of us as such, I think it's human nature that's given to us from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the point I want to raise is let that code be struck sooner than later. Which means sometimes, and this is something that really we were all caught in between where people come to believe it happens to me as well, we are all part of the same community. People come too big. And in our society, it's a little bit more than what people would face in developed countries. So people come too big and you wonder to yourself, is this fest is legitimate or not? That's a question I'm sure you always ask yourself. And inside, you know, I can't give them but I don't want to encourage

00:12:24 --> 00:12:37

a bad habit. It happens to all of us, I'm sure. So now they come in, push the bell and they tell you sada I'm sure you might have heard that. They tell you give me something, you know, he turned the turn at mobarak. And what that means is are you giving me something?

00:12:38 --> 00:13:11

Now in your heart, definitely you feel like reaching out, but at the same time, you have a feeling inside to say look, am I going to be encouraging behavior that is not befitting a Muslim unless he is in need. Because begging is something that's detested unless a person really has to. So what should we do? So the fact that you thought about it is a sign of the love of Allah upon you. Allah loves you. That's why you thought, if if Subhana Allah we are distanced from the love of Allah, we wouldn't even bat an eyelid Not at all. And this is why Be careful because the Quran says, What?

00:13:14 --> 00:13:15

Enough Allah

00:13:17 --> 00:13:58

and so the one who is asking, as for the beggar, do not rebuke you know, what is rebuke? to belittle, to suit to make them feel like they are cheating, to tell them a word of pessimism, a dirty word, a word of disrespect, a word that will hurt their hearts that's rebuking the Quran says Surah Doha we know it all. by heart. I'm sure all of us know it by heart, what the how a lay leader said yeah, this is towards the end. Allah says the one who asks don't rebuke him if you need to send him away because for example, your analysis was that this person here may not be that legit. And you have to send him away tell him a good word because the goodwill is for free, goodwill to say you

00:13:58 --> 00:14:11

know what inshallah, please can you go and try to work hard or something, say look, I won't be able to give you something this scent, perhaps you know, make dua, I will make dua for you and so on by the word of Allah, you will achieve something good goodwill.

00:14:12 --> 00:14:16

But I can tell you, what's not a bad idea

00:14:17 --> 00:14:57

is to send the man or the sister, a brother or sister a sandwich with a little bit of water or something to eat. So you have neither said no, no, have you actually spoiled them, but you've given them something to eat? And if they were to tell you no, I need money. In that particular case, you know that their need is not as it should be. So we don't start shouting and screaming and sometimes swearing. No, don't do that. Not at all. Part of the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala is when you respect those whom he sent to your dog, remember one thing, every person who pushes your belt and who comes to your door to knock it is silt planned by Allah. Without a doubt. It's a plan the plan

00:14:57 --> 00:15:00

of Allah, why to test for you? How do you react?

00:15:00 --> 00:15:03

And Allah says you don't have to give each one. Remember that.

00:15:05 --> 00:15:42

But how do you respond? That's the test. Sometimes you can get paradise just because you responded so well to a person who was desperately in need, that they made a little draft for you. And they were desperately in need, and they do ours accepted. And suddenly you started seeing goodness and you know, in your life doors started opening, that's because you served one of the worshipers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. With respect, same applies to our shops and whatever businesses we have those who work for us, everyone else we interact with, remember, respect is the term we want respect, we respect others. So Allah subhanho wa Taala puts it in our heart to give give a little

00:15:42 --> 00:16:19

bit, give something sometimes you can give $1 and sometimes if you feel that, you know this person is not going to, or this person has come back the 10th time because it happens, then perhaps you might want to change what are you going to give them? Or maybe come out and have a little chat with them? May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Oh goodness, we do have this issue that is very live in our society. And especially if you live in the suburbs here, it is a bit of an issue whereby lots of beggars coming to the doors, and lots of them asking for little handouts. And you know, Subhanallah it's just Allah who knows exactly the harder condition of that particular person for your

00:16:19 --> 00:16:54

information. You know, that to find the job is not so easy. But sometimes people earn so much through begging that they don't want to work. Because if they go to 60 houses a day, or maybe 100 houses a day, and they were to get $1 from only 20 of them, are they earning big bucks, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah protect us, really. Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us goodness, and this is why sometimes it's good for us to go out to talk to them, perhaps to give them something else, you know, a piece of clothing, something that might be of use to them, May Allah forgive us. So getting back to the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the love when you have spent in his power and you

00:16:54 --> 00:17:34

feel good. It's a sign of the love of Allah. For you. We love Allah we all say we love Allah subhanho wa Taala but sometimes we don't realize and understand the meaning of that term loving Allah subhanho wa Taala we are we we are in Santa, but Allah knows he loves us. That's why we have added the Shahada. That's why we do good deeds. That's why we feel good when we do good and we feel bad when we do bad May Allah forgive us. And this is why one of the prime things that we need to understand and I started the soap with It is Allah knows best why he did to you what he did to you. Remember, it's out of His love, he did it, no matter how negative it may seem, it is positive in the

00:17:34 --> 00:18:21

eyes of Allah Subhana Allah, sometimes we ask for something Allah does not grant it to us. While Allah he he knows deep down my worship, just be happy with my portion for you Just be happy with what I have decided for you for you is paradise. If you really want what you are asking for. And if you really want me to give it to you, you may regret heavenly May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us the coolness of our eyes and hearts for that which he may not have given us, although we are calling out to him so much. Whereas he knows that it's not good for us. And there are so many examples of this. You know, you have people who cry to Allah subhanho wa Taala for certain things and Allah

00:18:21 --> 00:18:59

keeps them in one condition because Allah knows this is your best conditions. Let's take a look at some who might be struggling, struggling to pay a fee struggling sometimes to do something or financially May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us ease but we work hard we call out to Allah we are on the masala some people have a health matter. Some people, for example, have any other issues, whatever your issue is, we all have different issues and we have to have issues. Not one of us can say I don't have an issue in my life, not even one. each one's issue is tailor made. And it's for you. It's yours. This is your test. You pass it in for you is paradise major big test, you fail it.

00:18:59 --> 00:19:38

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala forgive us we are in search of His mercy. So this is why we say say a B tests like a person cannot pay fees or sometimes financially they are struggling and has kept him like that for 1015 years. And Allah knows deep down that this person is calling out to me. This person let's say a medical problem this person calling out to me. Oh I love the way they call out to me somehow I don't know what a great act of worship. You know we reading extra Salah recording are we crying we making Toba? We are asking Allah to forgive us we become conscious of our deeds. Yeah, I better do this. I better do that. I hope you're not upset with me. I love this job. I beg you and

00:19:38 --> 00:19:41

he keeps you begging because he kept us on par.

00:19:43 --> 00:19:59

Sometimes the military gives it to us what happened to the hedges? Well, I used to make it the time I needed something. That's what happens. Why doesn't do those long two hours and Salah you Institute crying to Allah when is it tears go one tear is better than the entire dunya and what it holds if the tears

00:20:00 --> 00:20:37

For the pleasure pleasure of Allah sake of Allah you crying because you want something from Allah and you calling out only to him It means and Riba and an act of worship made you cry that's better than the whole world and what it has for you, and he has to handle as soon as we got it, where the tears Well, you know what I cried, but Allah gave me. So now what you're crying anymore. So panela? Well, one might say, well, there's no need to the truth is find an act of worship that will make you cry, find an act of worship, that will really open your doors of understanding and make you weep because of the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala This is Julian, this world is coming to an end. And

00:20:37 --> 00:20:57

before it comes to an end, most probably we will come to an end Subhan Allah, and you know, we sit healthy, a few years down the line, we're going to be old people, if Allah gives us life. And after that there is no option. But to look forward to the meeting with Allah, we have to get down. We have to, you know, when I was young, very young,

00:20:58 --> 00:21:00

first time I ever went to the Luna Park.

00:21:01 --> 00:21:03

And I can share with you an experience.

00:21:05 --> 00:21:38

And you know, I was convinced, let's get onto the roller coaster. Now we used to go on this little danglers and whatever else there was, you know, small things, little kids, and then someone convinced me I can't remember who it was. Let's get on to this roller coaster. And you know, you're watching it from a distance and you don't realize what you're getting yourself into. Anyway, we I remember clearly they attacked us in with a closed us with a bar. And the thing started, when it started, we just looking at each other we moving slow, suddenly something happens to you, you think what am I doing? Where am I like you're about to be flung off. And next thing it carries on and it

00:21:38 --> 00:22:16

goes on and you're like your eyes are closed and you don't know what's happening. And next thing you got to slow it down again. And then otherwise he comes back and you think again, what am I doing? Where am I and you go on that ride. It's a rollercoaster ride, and it's just goes, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. I remember clearly I was looking at a man in a green overalls, who was nearly the buttons that were being pressed and are telling me selfies and he's laughing at me laughing at me and I was a little kid. The lesson I learned from that is in life things happen. Sometimes Allah subhanho wa Taala has placed you in a in a position where Something's definitely

00:22:16 --> 00:22:34

going to happen to you cannot turn it away. But you need to understand it's in the hands of Allah Leave it. It's in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala The same applies today. When it comes, don't worry, you're going to go through it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make it easy for us. You have to just like when you were born.

00:22:36 --> 00:22:50

One One is no one says it's very hard to become born. Why? Because after that you have life. But who knows that life you know, we just started breathing suddenly there's someone so just like that you just stopped breathing suddenly there'll be no one.

00:22:51 --> 00:22:56

Maliki that easy for us. Now Allah Subhana Allah grant us on a good day. But the truth is,

00:22:57 --> 00:23:09

when we start looking forward to the meeting with Allah, we don't mind we say Allah you take us whenever we you know, whenever you know it's best for us. Continue Rasulullah saw Salah news to say Allah,

00:23:10 --> 00:23:47

Allah grant me life for as long as you know, life is good for me and Allah Take me away, when you know it's better for me, that's the best to automate. Because you want to die in a good condition better for you. That's such a powerful, because then Allah protects you from dying in a condition that's not good. So he knows this is better for you to die in a condition that's good for you. And then you die. And it was to do a few days ago, there was a man from Egypt, who passed away in Mecca in the harem. And he just gone into June, and he never came up. And he was a young boy, to be honest with you. He was in his 20s. And he went down in such that he did not come back. And the whole

00:23:47 --> 00:24:10

crowd, you know, thinking Subhanallah What a beautiful day and so on. And do you know what happens to some of these bodies, some of these bodies, they happen to freeze in that condition where you cannot bring them back out into, you know, the sleeping position or law he that's something maddening, you have to be bearing in that condition. Because if you if the body is not relaxed, for example, and it's

00:24:11 --> 00:24:46

perhaps I don't know what the exact word is, but it the position of it is sad, so to speak. In that particular case, what happens? They have no option you have to be buried that way. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a good day, really. And so my brothers, we were talking on the love of Allah and now what I'm saying is when we love Allah subhanho wa Taala in return, we understand his plan, and we no longer you know, depressed when we think of dying, we actually look forward to the meeting with Allah subhanho wa Taala and we realize it's Allah who's in control.

00:24:47 --> 00:24:59

Amazing. This is the love of Allah. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah keeps us in condition Subhana Allah Subhana Allah so that we keep on calling out to him, and this is why nobody's life is absolutely perfect. You know, if you take care

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

For look at wealth,

00:25:02 --> 00:25:08

wealth is said in the huddle of Rasulullah Sallam to be a very big test, very big test.

00:25:10 --> 00:25:13

Why is it a test, it's a test for those who have it, and those who don't have it.

00:25:14 --> 00:25:34

And this is tests difference. Sometimes people who don't have you stopped questioning to the degree that they lose their email, sometimes it brings them closer to Allah. And sometimes those who have it, it brings them closer to Allah. And sometimes those who have it, it distances them because in a lot of cases, wealth brings about this feeling within men, that now I'm someone.

00:25:35 --> 00:25:51

It's just sad, it happens to a lot of people, but a more meaning doesn't happen to them, it doesn't happen to them. Why? Because you know, this is from Allah, he can take it, he can do anything right here, right now, there were days when I did not have it. And this is why if you take a careful look at generations,

00:25:52 --> 00:26:19

as time passes, there are people who've made their money in 10 years, some in five years, some in 40 years. Some they're still you know, busy trying and so on. But to be honest, the previous generation, I'm talking of the bulk of us, the previous generation and the previous one, were perhaps much poorer than we are. But guess what? They complain less. They complain less. I know of people who sold vegetables.

00:26:21 --> 00:26:25

And later on, perhaps their families became tycoons wealthy.

00:26:27 --> 00:26:29

But today, you find there is more

00:26:30 --> 00:26:50

lack of contentment in us who have a little bit more than those previously, who had absolutely no, they were barefoot walking. They used to have, they used to sell their shoes, listen to this. And I'm going to say this because it really, it really means something. They would sell their shoes every time something happened to the shoe to the cobbler.

00:26:52 --> 00:27:00

And they would pay whatever it was needed a few cents and get it back. Today, let's be honest, myself included. If your shoe has a little bit of a hole in it,

00:27:01 --> 00:27:39

they are from amongst us, those who will send in the you know, the shoe to the cover. But I think the number has decreased and diminished so much so that nothing's wrong with the shoe. But you saw another pay. And you say let me buy this one. That's where we've become but in our heart, what's the condition? What Why are we not as happy as those people? Let's be honest. Why? Because we have not understood the last love for us. Allah gave you a a better than everyone else before you from your own family. But now you're not happy because when you look at other faces, I got Nikes you know, these are called I don't know, cumulus or something. What's it is a top shoe. You know, these asix

00:27:39 --> 00:27:57

Oh, wow, this has a gel, you know. Now the other one, you know, they say it's got a little I don't know, whatever else in it. And so I need that one, you know, and now you're depressed. You said even with mobile phones. You know, there was a time when all our homes I don't know if you recall, we had those phones there's all ancient phones, you open your you know, your tablet and your yet

00:27:59 --> 00:28:34

another side. And then and then you have to take your finger and other way. And you can't even get through to Zambian you need to dial and operate and book a call. And you booked the call and he says okay, I'll call you back in one hour. Or you say okay, half past 10 in the evening, and I promise you, everybody's waiting around the phone. Next thing. Is this your number? Yes. Okay, hold on for your caller. Oh, wait, we are connecting you and then they connect you. And everyone's talking. And those were the days but people were so happy today we can call push of a button for almost free on something like Viber. And yet, there's no communication number one, number two is you're not even

00:28:34 --> 00:28:49

happy to talk to the others and everything is gone. But look at communication technologies, why we haven't looked at how much Allah loves us that he's given us technology far beyond what our forefathers would have ever imagined in their lives. Imagine if

00:28:51 --> 00:29:01

one wonders, but still really, the heart is changed. Why does that change? The heart changes because you do not recognize that Allah loves you. That's why.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:30

So I started off by saying Allah loves you definitely. And me and all of us, he definitely loves us. But the winner is the one who recognizes that love of Allah subhanho wa Taala and then does something about it. So in order to recognize the love of Allah, you need to think you need to ponder you know, in marriages sometimes and I'm just going to give you this example because it's also happening. Sometimes you find you know, the man is working hard and so on. And you know, he Mashallah he tries his best and he earns, and he brings back a little bit at home. And,

00:29:31 --> 00:29:59

you know, sometimes you just hear complaints. You just hear that you've done nothing, you know, we can do better. No, but a man is struggling, he's trying his best and so on. But when she sits and she starts thinking, hey, this man goes out in the morning. He comes back in the evening, he carries on, okay, he might have a few weaknesses. We are human beings. That's part of the test. But he tries so hard, so hard. Automatically, the love builds in her heart. Why? She really likes that that man is living and really serving me. He's really playing his

00:30:00 --> 00:30:15

He's really he brings back he tries You know, he comes home he smiles. I hope we do. He comes home he tries his best inshallah, you know he says a good word or two. And here I am. I'm just saying words that are just cutting, cutting, cutting Why? I haven't understood his love.

00:30:18 --> 00:30:21

And then she says, but you don't ever tell me you love me.

00:30:22 --> 00:30:34

I need you to say, Well, you know what, to be honest with you. She just needs a torch. They call it an ultraviolet torch and you write it with an ultraviolet pin on your forehead. Whenever you want to see just shine the torch on my forehead, you'll see certainly

00:30:35 --> 00:31:05

today, ultraviolet, Allah says goddess, you don't need Okay, it's important to say and I know, with the new generations, you need to say 124 times a day. I think with the new generation, it's increasing before you know in my generation, we still Five, six, we get away with it, you know, five, six times a day that you guys need to save much more. Whoa, you need to look into it. I love you. Whoa, Okay, thanks, thanks. Even if you didn't go to work that day, bring back any money. I love you. Don't worry, never mind, I understand why.

00:31:07 --> 00:31:43

But if you were to think without those words, just think what sacrifice they've made for you. Come on, they've sacrificed in need, they've actually gone out. They've worked hard, they might have to have go here, go there. And we busy complaining, I haven't seen you in this. You know, you don't love me don't spend time with my brothers. It's important to spend time we're not saying we're not trying to justify the wrongdoings of the brothers. But what we are saying is, wherever there is dedicated sacrifice, it will only blossom when the other party system pondered over the sacrifices. The same applies to the females or men will not understand the sacrifice of his wife, until he knows

00:31:43 --> 00:32:15

what pain she's gone through to deliver for example, until he knows for example, sitting and thinking how she's got the house in order. Everything is clean, even if you've got a maid or whatever else helping hands at all. But everything is clean, smart, they waiting for you, they train with the children, they've taught the children so much, you know they get them ready, they do this you need to sit and think without thinking of it, you won't appreciate the love of that individual for you. So even if they love you, the other side is doesn't understand the love. That's what happens between us and Allah.

00:32:16 --> 00:32:33

He loves us. But we haven't yet second thoughts. Everything is given us we just ponder over one or two little things. And after that, you know what we get upset. And we say Allah hasn't given me What hasn't given you. And you talk about you say about three things. I can mention 3 million things that he's given you Come on.

00:32:34 --> 00:32:41

Now Allah subhanho wa Taala opened our doors, may he help us and may really grant us increase. I want to end this session

00:32:42 --> 00:33:00

by mentioning a story that I mentioned yesterday in the message, the brothers some of them may have heard it, but for the benefit of the sisters and the others. It's a very touching story. It also shows the love of Allah subhanho wa Taala the power, the power of Allah subhanho wa Taala never, ever underestimate the power of Allah.

00:33:01 --> 00:33:29

You know, there was a chef who mentioned this in Saudi Arabia. And there was a doctor that visited him from Pakistan, and told him a story that happened to him. So he says, what happened to me Is he the doctor who speaking is a top neurologist, one of the top doctors in Pakistan, or, you know, a very, very good doctors very hard to meet, it said that perhaps you'd have to wait months on end before you can get an appointment to see him. So what happened is he says,

00:33:30 --> 00:34:09

I was flying from one city to another very busy man flying quite often within the country and perhaps even outside. And he says Suddenly, the clouds built, the clouds built up huge clouds, and the lightning started striking and it started pouring. And there was lots of turbulence and one of the engines was struck, and it was damaged. So we had to learn, we have to learn. And so what happened is the landing was at a nearby a little airport or a little strip and so on. And when they landed there, it was a remote area, how are you going to repair this aircraft? A few people who are on it was a small plane, they were you know, quite surprised because they landed in such a remote

00:34:09 --> 00:34:42

place. No one's there to repair it, they would have have to wait, definitely. So the doctor asks the captain or the pilot that you know what, how long are you going to be? He says no, we're going to be quite long. Well, I need to get to that area. Look, he says it's just a three hour drive with your by vehicle. So why don't you just go by road. And you know, you can go there and get there. He says okay, good idea, because this is going to take long. So he decides to go on one of the trade shows, you know, in Pakistan, one of the areas wherever it was and he jumped in, and as they started progressing, the clouds built again. And the lightning was striking and the rain started pouring and

00:34:42 --> 00:34:59

it was pouring so much that the vehicle could not move much more because of the mud and because of everything else. And so it was quite an open area with a bit of farmland and and after a while they realized look, we're not getting anywhere. This little house here. Why don't we just go there. We can read our Salah. Perhaps we can

00:35:00 --> 00:35:35

No, see you have a bit of a meal or whatever else and they decided to knock the door strange people strange land far off out in the rules. And so he knocks the door and he's got his little bag and everything and he walks in is an old lady happened to answer the door after a while and she he spoke to her saying look, we this is what has happened and we are going from so and so to so and so and we just wanted to place you want to eat salah and so on. And she said no problem you can come in she had a little morsel a little suggestion. And she had a little baby on the side or not a baby but a child and the child every little while she's actually checking on the child and she's sitting on

00:35:35 --> 00:35:40

that masala making do is reading her own Salah, these people will fulfill their Salah did whatever they had to.

00:35:42 --> 00:35:54

And when they were about to leave, they spoke to the old lady saying you know, thank you very much as I communicate and so on and, you know, we are going what's what's happening to this child, you know, so the woman says, look, the child is an orphan.

00:35:55 --> 00:36:06

And the child is unwell not well at all very sick. And we've been to all the doctors around. We've been to all the doctors around and Subhanallah

00:36:09 --> 00:36:10

I'm the grandmother of this child.

00:36:11 --> 00:36:32

The doctors have told us that there is only one specialist around one specialist around who can help this child and we tried to make an appointment but they asked us to come six months later and it's far away. I've been making dua to Allah ever since that day, Allah make it easy for us child is sick child is sick, make it easy for us Yala.

00:36:34 --> 00:36:37

So, a man says what's the name of that specialist?

00:36:40 --> 00:36:42

So the guy says is Dr. Zhang

00:36:45 --> 00:36:52

immediately this doctor burst into tears. He burst into tears straightaway he burst into tears. Why crying?

00:36:54 --> 00:37:09

Your eyes just seen except for your the thunder came, the lightning came the engine struck. We came down. We came on the road the rain came again and stopped us and so on. And do you know what? The rain only stopped after the question was asked.

00:37:10 --> 00:37:25

Now it happened. And now the woman starts crying Subhanallah and the doctor himself is telling the story saying that was me. It happened to me. He says and he says, I learned that Allah has armies

00:37:26 --> 00:37:31

are beyond limits. Allah uses whatever he wants to get what he wants done. So

00:37:32 --> 00:38:18

where in the wildest of the dreams of this person would they have felt or believed that the top man whom it is simply impossible to see without big big appointments would actually be driven all the way to the door, knock the door come in here read some salah and they would have to serve the child here. Amazing. Well, it brings tears to the eyes. But the reason I share it with you, every one of us has needs for Allah subhanho wa Taala just keep calling. Just have your feeling. Have conviction. If it is made, it will definitely come in your direction. You know we use the term by hook or crook but I don't want to use that today. I want to tell you by the mercy and power of Allah subhanho wa

00:38:18 --> 00:38:34

Taala it will happen it will come to pass. May Allah subhanahu Allah bless us. May He opened our doors. May He grant us all Shiva, and may He make us believers that for him. Nothing is impossible, or Salama, who was a llama or Baraka Island Amina Muhammad
