Allah says,

00:00:02 --> 00:00:05

Seek help and assistance through a beautiful patience.

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

You need to know Allah is there. Allah

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

created you in the 1st place. He will

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

take care of you. Don't worry.

00:00:12 --> 00:00:15

He will indeed take care of you and

00:00:15 --> 00:00:17

he will make sure that you live your

00:00:17 --> 00:00:20

exact prescribed time on earth.

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

It's not going to change by a fraction

00:00:23 --> 00:00:24

of a second,

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

neither this way nor that way.

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

So Allah is telling the believers seek

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

assistance

00:00:31 --> 00:00:34

through patience. And then he says, and prayer.

00:00:35 --> 00:00:37

Prayer. Pray a lot. Call out to Allah.

00:00:37 --> 00:00:40

Your 5 daily prayers. Do them enthusiastically.

00:00:41 --> 00:00:44

Be excited about praying. Don't just get it

00:00:44 --> 00:00:47

over and done with, but be excited. Wash

00:00:47 --> 00:00:50

yourself thoroughly, properly for the sake of Allah.

00:00:50 --> 00:00:51

Be clean. Be smart.

00:00:52 --> 00:00:55

Keep yourselves clean. When the Almighty tells you

00:00:55 --> 00:00:57

to wash yourself in ablution, you need to

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

know there is a reason He's saying wash

00:00:59 --> 00:01:01

your hands 5 times a day. There is

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

a reason he's saying keep yourself clean and

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04

smart.

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

If you were to go to the bathroom,

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

make sure that you've cleansed yourself. All this

00:01:09 --> 00:01:11

is in order to bring about a comfort

00:01:12 --> 00:01:13

in times of crisis.

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

Whenever the prophet

00:01:16 --> 00:01:18

was faced with a crisis of some nature,

00:01:18 --> 00:01:20

the first thing he did,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

he rushed

00:01:21 --> 00:01:22

to prayer.

00:01:22 --> 00:01:24

Who are we? We are the followers of

00:01:24 --> 00:01:26

Muhammad, peace be upon him. We should also

00:01:26 --> 00:01:29

be rushing to prayer. Whenever there is a

00:01:29 --> 00:01:32

crisis, for him it was not a real

00:01:32 --> 00:01:34

crisis. He knew he was the messenger of

00:01:34 --> 00:01:37

Allah. For us, we face crisis, but when

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

we

00:01:38 --> 00:01:41

rush to prayer, we will be comforted by

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

Allah. Put your head on the ground and

00:01:43 --> 00:01:46

call out to your maker. The closest you

00:01:46 --> 00:01:48

could ever be to your maker is when

00:01:48 --> 00:01:49

you are in prostration.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

The closest that a slave could be to

00:01:56 --> 00:01:58

his maker is when his head is on

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

the ground for his maker,

00:02:00 --> 00:02:02

crying to his maker, oh my maker help

00:02:02 --> 00:02:05

me. I need your help. Allah will respond.

00:02:05 --> 00:02:07

Allah says, you will be comforted.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:09

Seek help through patience

00:02:09 --> 00:02:12

and prayer for indeed Allah is with those

00:02:12 --> 00:02:14

who bear patience.
