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

Camila he will Hamdulillah he was Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah he will Allah Allah He was happy Hajj mine,

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

my beloved brothers and sisters.

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

Nothing is impossible for Allah.

00:00:14--> 00:00:45

We believe that Allah creates from nothing. He doesn't need a thing to create. When He created man from dust or sand or soil, he did not need to use that to make man. He didn't need it. He could have created us from anything else or from absolutely nothing in common among who either Radha che and Amy coolala, who can

00:00:47--> 00:01:12

fire Kufa super high on the EBRD Allahu Akbar, for Suba Hannah levy BIA de Melaku, to connetion, it was a lie he told me on Indeed, the instruction, the Command of Allah when he wants to create something is B.

00:01:13--> 00:01:21

And it is so glory be unto Allah, who is the owner of absolutely everything, and everyone and everything is going to return to Allah.

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

That is your Lord mine.

00:01:25--> 00:01:26

People say

00:01:27--> 00:01:36

that. We don't believe in a maker stop for Allah. We don't believe that there is a deity, a supreme deity we're here coincidentally.

00:01:38--> 00:01:48

One simple evidence to prove that that is wrong in our eyes, is that from the beginning of our species, Adam Alayhis Salam,

00:01:49--> 00:02:10

right to the end of the species, every single one of us has many things that are uniquely his or hers never, ever repeated in the past, not repeated in the present and will never be repeated right up to the end of time. For example, your thumbprint.

00:02:11--> 00:03:00

Every finger of yours is uniquely yours. No one has had your fingerprint from the beginning to the end. No one shall have it another thing your iris print uniquely yours alone. They can identify you without a blunder. Never a mistake in it. Not one. If there is no chance if we were here, coincidentally, surely, coincidentally, they would have been two or three people with the same iris prints, right? Surely there would have been a few more coincidences that have occurred. My brothers and sisters, let's not be fooled. We believe in Allah, we believe there is a makeup we believe that he alone deserves to be worshipped. Because we know on the day of Tiama and judgment, we will be

00:03:00--> 00:03:14

standing with our accounts in front of the Almighty, and they can never ever be a fraction of a doubt in the identity of who is this? Not at all? You did your Arma you did your deeds, right?

00:03:15--> 00:03:23

Imagine if there was a doubt Was it you or someone else? That's why if your fingerprint is not good enough your iris print, let me tell you what else

00:03:24--> 00:04:12

the way exactly your hair grows. And the exact way that it's all set in your head is all unique. It's just you and yours. We can go further and beyond to see the Buddha and the power of the Almighty. By looking at the animals no two zebras have had same stripes from the beginning to the end. No two giraffes have had the same spots from the beginning to the end. No two cheetahs have had the same spots or leopards or Tigers have had the same stripes or whatever else it may be from the beginning to the end for subarna levy B or D Maluku to Kulish a in what you lay it all down. Glory be to Allah. All praise is due to Him who created absolutely everything in such beauty such

00:04:12--> 00:04:17

perfection to him returns absolutely everything now my brothers and sisters,

00:04:18--> 00:04:59

when we realize the greatness of Allah, and we realize how sophisticated man thinks he is yet it's not even the beginning of sophistication. When I was young, and I'm sure many of you when you were younger, we used to get excited because there was a time when we would phone overseas only via an operator when they decided to make to do away with the operator and you could dial yourself. We got excited. Wow advancement. Compare that time to today. What difference is there Subhanallah today a press of a button and you can talk to someone see them at the same time and hold the phone

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

On without a cable for us it was more like something of a fantasy or something that wasn't even there that we couldn't even imagine, would occur.

00:05:12--> 00:05:55

May Allah subhanahu wa taala grant us an understanding and Allah says on top of that, men has been given knowledge without a doubt Allah gave man knowledge Allah ml in Santa Mala Mia, Allah, Allah taught man what he didn't know. So what did man do? Well, how many years have we been in existence? We don't even know. We can't even count we won't even be able to go back. There is a difference of opinion how many human beings were there? Exactly how many years ago did Adam Alayhis Salam be on Earth? We don't know their estimations, perhaps people can calculate but certainty no one knows. Imagine you don't even know that amount. I don't even know that. No matter how sophisticated we've

00:05:55--> 00:06:13

become. And I tell you over 1000s of years, think of something I want to tell you today. These facilities we have our a b b gift from Allah, but they are a responsibility as well. Do they bring you closer to Allah? Or do they take you away from Allah?

00:06:14--> 00:06:20

And I tell you why. Who was the most loved to Allah from all creation, say the name

00:06:22--> 00:06:24

Nabina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:06:26--> 00:06:33

Not only him, but all the other messengers of Allah may peace be upon them lived at a time when

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

there was no electricity.

00:06:37--> 00:06:38

There was no running water.

00:06:39--> 00:06:40

There was no internet.

00:06:42--> 00:06:48

There was no technology that we know now no motor vehicles, no aircraft, there was nothing of that.

00:06:50--> 00:07:04

For Allah to prove to you and I that if that had had any value in the eyes of Allah to draw you closer to Allah in any way shape or form the first person who would have had it would have been who?

00:07:06--> 00:07:26

Muhammad salallahu Salam so what we have is nothing that you need to be excited about if it is drifting you away from Allah, all this facility for men imagine a running tap what do we do we get up and we turn on the tap. Do you know it did not exist at the time of Nabi Muhammad, Salah salah, there is no running water like this.

00:07:28--> 00:07:49

It was tough. How do they drink? We have purified water water purifiers, this and that everything? How did they survive for four centuries? Come on man. millenniums one after the other, they survived with what you sit in one day, they probably drank water that might have looked a little bit like tea for us. And by the way, tea is something relatively new.

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

I can't do without Tiedemann don't have my tea, I get a headache. Talk about myself. By the way. May Allah grant us ease. thank Allah for the favors. But remember one thing

00:08:02--> 00:08:18

Allah exists number one, number two, your life is very short. And so is mine. extremely short. You have to go back to Allah. And when you go back to Allah, he's going to ask you, how did you spend your short time on Earth? Tell us you have to give the accounts.

00:08:19--> 00:08:22

So prepare for that day. How do we prepare? Let me tell you,

00:08:24--> 00:09:06

each one of us has been gifted and blessed by Allah in a unique way. Every one of us has a gift of Allah, some people mashallah they are extremely intelligent in one particular field Allah gave them that some others perhaps Allah gave them something else, a lot of intellect. Some people are brilliant in Quran and tafsir others are brilliant perhaps in something that Allah has blessed him with a doctor medicine mashallah beautiful. Someone else has a lot of wealth for example, someone has, use what ever Allah gave you to earn your Jannah use what ever Allah gave you uniquely yours to enter Jannah but don't forget the pillars of Islam and your primary duties Unto Allah.

00:09:08--> 00:09:50

Two things we need to remember what Allah told you to do. compulsorily, don't miss that. Secondly, what Allah told you to stay away from compulsorily you stay away from that. We have no option. We must, if you will falter because you're a human being quickly turn back to Allah in Toba and Allah will grant you and Allah will grant you do not underestimate the power of dua. I started off by saying nothing is impossible for Allah. You think you're weak? Yes, we are all weak. But that weakness, the only one who's going to eradicate it for you is Allah. When you strengthen your relationship with Allah, you will automatically eradicate your weakness. Speak to people with

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

respect. These are all creatures of Allah, they are worshipers of Allah. You will never know who is a friend of Allah. If the Hadith says monarda Lee will Linnaean

00:10:00--> 00:10:29

then to who will help be whoever has harmed a friend of mine. I've announced war against them. Who is a friend of Allah, you don't know. You never know. You would never guess who it might be. It could be a person, they would be human, obviously. But they could be anyone seated here or seated anywhere else. I mean, imagine if you're harming a Friend of Allah, Allah says, You've, you've announced war, we've announced war with you. Declare war against who? Allah? Why that's my friend.

00:10:30--> 00:11:14

So if being hurtful and harmful towards a Friend of Allah would cause our own destruction. Don't you think? Being good? And being kind and being polite and reaching out and fulfilling the rights of people? Perhaps they would be a friend of Allah from amongst them? Wouldn't it result in the opposite? If you do something bad, you're going to face bad. And if you do something good, don't you think you're going to face goodness? So when you're kind to people, What did it cost you to be good? What did it cost you to be nice and kind. We lose our cool and we think we have the right? May Allah help us calm down. All of us, myself included, we all need a reminder from time to time to say calm

00:11:14--> 00:11:34

down, relax, speak to people with respect, and understand that Allah is the Greatest. Like I said moments ago, if something bad earns you a sin, the opposite of it, when it's good will earn you a reward. I'll give you an example. Today, there is an appreciation of Nikka after Salah Inshallah, we're all invited to attend

00:11:36--> 00:12:00

the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he says people don't have the concert data. He says, you know, when you fulfill your base desire in a halal way, you get a reward of a charity. The Sahaba were a little bit surprised, obviously, because people say, I'm going to sleep with my wife basically, and I'm getting a reward for it. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam when he asked them,

00:12:01--> 00:12:03

they asked him actually that

00:12:04--> 00:12:48

if we were if one of us was to fulfill his base desire, would he really get a reward for that as of our charity as a sadaqa as a reward? So the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, do you see if someone did haram in terms of Zina or adultery? Would he earn a sin? They said, Yes, he would. Well, if he earned a sin to do it in the wrong way, he would earn a reward to do it in the right way. Subhanallah that's Allah, that is Allah, the mercy. My brothers and sisters, one of the methods that Allah uses to bring us closer to him is by inflicting us with something we perceive as negative.

00:12:50--> 00:12:59

If you take a look at the world, there will be uncertainty. Why? Allah wants you to turn to Him, there's no other reason.

00:13:00--> 00:13:06

There will be anxiety why Allah wants you to do better in your relationship with him. There's no other reason.

00:13:07--> 00:13:19

There will be health problems. Look at this virus that came in what was the purpose that it came in, there is only one purpose, there's no other purpose. Allah wants you to come closer to him. No other reason. Nothing.

00:13:20--> 00:13:48

Allah wants you to mend your ways to turn to Him. When you when you don't know what's happening in your business, or there's anxiety or a massive loss, or something burned down totally, there is only one reason for a movement, Allah wants you to come closer to him. And if you came closer to Allah because of any one of those things, or anything negative Wallah, he, it was the blessing of Allah and it's the Mercy of Allah and the gift of Allah.

00:13:49--> 00:14:17

If your leg was amputated, and that made you repent to Allah, what was that? What was that that's the Mercy of Allah. But if ALLAH blessed you and gave you and did everything for you, and you passed with flying colors, and you've got authority, and you've got good looks, and you've got lots of knowledge, and you've got lots of this and whatever else it may be, if that drifted you away from Allah, it cannot be the Mercy of Allah. So understand the favours of Allah and let it bring you closer to Allah.

00:14:18--> 00:14:38

How do I come closer to Allah, I do better in my salah. I do better in my tilava of the Quran, which is the book of Allah. The most powerful word in existence is Kalam Allah, how much do you read? Do I read a day I can do better. I read one page, I will do two I read one Jews, I will do two I do two Jews. I'll do three.

00:14:39--> 00:14:54

I do one page, I'll read the meaning as well. I will do something more. If you improve your relationship with the Quran. That's a big blessing. It's improving your relationship with Allah. So my brothers and sisters when Allah wants something from you.

00:14:56--> 00:14:57

He puts a test in your life

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

when he puts a test

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

In your life, draw close.

00:15:02--> 00:15:09

Don't worry, you're not the first person who is sick. You're not the first person who is ill. May Allah grant Shiva to all those who are seeking deal.

00:15:10--> 00:15:22

You are not the first person who is suffering the loss that you are suffering No. There will be there were millions before you and millions after you you are one only to Allah. He loves you. He wants you to come come.

00:15:23--> 00:16:13

So naturally among men who has some Iman will then realize you know what I need to turn to Allah. Let me raise my hands for Allah. Let me make Toba let me change my life. Let me do something better. This is Allah calling me literally calling me through these issues. And I promise you the doors begin to open one after the other. Never give up on dua. Nothing is impossible for Allah. Look at what Allah says in the Quran. He is the one who responds to the one in distress. Who is there besides Allah who will respond to the one in distress? I've known of people who were perhaps given a short time to live by medicine and the medical fraternity based on their experience. Six years on

00:16:13--> 00:16:15

and they are alive and healthy and well, why

00:16:16--> 00:16:24

my Ugg boots, Perla either who I actually was so our cola

00:16:26--> 00:16:59

who is there besides Allah? Who responds to the one in distress when he calls out? You are totally helpless and you say Oh Allah, there is no body and nothing and not me and not any power on earth that can help me right now. Besides you, Oh Allah, Allah says, I listened to that. I listened to that and I respond immediately. And he is the one who makes us inherit the earth. Allah says, Allah Houma Allah, is there any deity besides Allah, it's Allah alone.

00:17:00--> 00:17:01

Allah no

00:17:03--> 00:17:04

matter the Koran.

00:17:06--> 00:17:25

Very few Take heed, may Allah subhanahu wa taala grant that to us. So we turn to Allah, let's invest in our relationship with Allah. Invest in it by making an effort. Salah is very important, I have found something. If you want your life to change five Salah

00:17:27--> 00:18:05

and you do it enthusiastically happily come a little bit early, fulfill your Salah and go back. That Salah itself will help you to stay away from haram. It will increase your goodness it will increase Baraka in your family. And the same way you invest in your relationship with Allah, you must invest in your relationships with your within your families, you have a wife, you have for example, brothers and sisters, your parents, your children, you need to invest in the relationship, your time your effort, you need to teach them a word of goodness, or you need to at least mention brilliant words, when you invest in a relationship. It will blossom starting with Allah, and then everyone

00:18:05--> 00:18:19

else don't think I'm suddenly going to have a good relationship with my children or with my spouse when you barely talk to them. In the new generation, we have to speak some beautiful sweet words to our spouses every day. If you don't, it's like a little piano.

00:18:20--> 00:18:45

Yes, you know how it is the new generation you have to talk. You have to say things because this is an age of social media. It has so many negatives, but it has positives too. But unfortunately, we're drowning in the negatives. That's a fact of life. And that's why we remind each other invest in your relationship with Allah put away a little bit of this stuff. Talk to Allah, communicate to them fulfill your Salah, beautiful gift of Allah and secondly and lastly

00:18:47--> 00:19:05

make an effort with the Quran. I said it already and I'm saying it again. Make an effort you will find something amazing. To our rough Illa Allah he feel Raha II Yeah, efficient that I found. This is something powerful. Get acquainted with Allah during your days of ease.

00:19:06--> 00:19:43

Get close to Allah when nothing is wrong in your life, everything is smooth sailing, then go close to Allah. So what will happen when the days are tough for you, Allah will come to you. Subhanallah my worshiper Jonas alayhi salam, it is reported that when he was down in the belly of the fish in the darkness of the water at the bottom, darkness, the angels were saying, Oh Allah, the One who does your test be with a beautiful voice every day. Today, the same voice is calling from a totally different place seeking your help.

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

What miracle happened? The fish spat him out. He came out he was not even proper in terms of his skin and so on. Allah helped and he was cured and everything happened. Something impossible today when you tell people they might think this is a fairy tale. What

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

Allah He we have yaki when it happened it was It is true that Allah in the Quran it's in the previous books to our version is the correct one.

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

Why? Because Allah says they

00:20:15--> 00:20:58

follow Allah. Who can Amin al Musa behenyl Allah Allah be Taffy botany Allah will mean you bath on had he not been from among those who constantly engaged in this beer, he would have remained in the belly of the whale until forever. What does that mean? Because he was close to Allah during days of ease at the time of difficulty and hardship he has Allah, Allah throws his rope to you straight away, I guarantee you in your life and in mind, that is Allah. In our Allah Huck, when Allah promises you something, there's no doubt Yes, it's his timing, not yours. You might make it to ask but Allah is not hearing don't even think that Allah will give you when the time is right. Every

00:20:58--> 00:21:06

minute of delay is an absolute blessing may Allah Almighty grant us all goodness oppo loco, li ha That was all Allahu ala Nabina Muhammad
