Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Allah, Allah, he was happy here to mine, my beloved brothers and sisters. At times. We have enemies whom we don't know. And Allah subhanho wa Taala knows this. Sometimes we feel unsafe. Allah subhanho wa Taala says he will test us with a little bit of uncertainty, and he may test us with the issue of enmity coming from people we may know we may not know at times, we have hypocrites who might smile on your face, but they stab you on your back. Now what do I do? What does revelation have in it? For me in terms of direction? What should I do? Because if I start worrying
about such people, I will probably become depressed. I will become saddened I won't be able to progress in life. I need to carry on I need to get up every morning with a fresh smile on my face. I need to have a fresh and renewed hope in the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala to answer that question, Allah subhanho wa Taala beautifully puts it in Surah Nisa one long movie.
He woke up,
he when he woke up,
he knows when y'all Allah knows best who your enemies are. And Allah is sufficient for you, as a protector, and Allah is sufficient for you, as a helper. Who can there be better than Allah as a protector for you and die? Who can there be better than Allah as a protector or a god? One who is going to guard us and help us a helper? Who can there be better than Allah Subhana Allah so my brothers and sisters, when you are feeling uncertain when you don't know, leave it in the hands of Allah, read your dua and continue and Allah will open your doors Allah will grant you a sense of calmness in your heart. Allah will give you contentment so that you can get up in the morning and
you are not worried about anything Bismillah In the name of Allah, Allah de la bu mas mi chez RB Walla, Fie sama, who was semi alien, I am taking the name of Allah by whose name nothing can ever harm me at all, neither on earth nor in the heavens, and indeed he is all hearing all knowing Subhan Allah. So these are some of the supplications of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, use them, make them and you need to feel the comfort then leave it in the hands of Allah, they cannot touch you why laminal amatola eg Tama Allah ano de roca bishi in La Mirada ruka in LA Bhima, kata kata hula hula like the Prophet Muhammad says sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you need to know
that if the entire nation gets together to harm you, they cannot cause any harm to you, unless Allah has written it against you already. Leave it in the hands of Allah Subhana Allah. So this is something amazing because when we read through the pages of the Quran, we find so many verses where there were people from the very beginning, who were not only the personal enemies of Rasulullah salallahu alayhi wa sallam, because they were jealous of him, they accused him they
said that he was actually after things that he was not he was known as the most honest and the most trustworthy prior to Prophethood, which means if he didn't lie regarding material items of the world prior to Prophethood Why on earth would he be lying regarding the hereafter? Subhan Allah? Wasn't he known as a Sadiq Khan? I mean, the most truthful, the most honest Subhan Allah, so if they did that to the messenger, salallahu alayhi wasallam and to the companions of his May Allah peace and blessings be upon them all. Who do you think you and I are, we don't stand the chance they will go to town with us. Subhana Allah, they will literally say everything about us when they say it, learn
Tell yourself, the most beloved unto Allah, they did this to him. If they are doing it to me, that is something Allah loves about me.
Tell yourself that and be steadfast. Subhana Allah, nothing will harm you ever in the world in
Funny thing, my protector is indeed
The one who has revealed the Book Allah and he is the one who will protect the good, the pious and those who are trying to attain the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala has been long
can do a bola roshen Ali, Allah is sufficient for me. I don't need to worry about anything has to be Allah there is none worthy of worship besides Allah besides he and He is the Lord of the great throne. Subhan Allah. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us protection when they came to the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam telling him that they have prepared a huge army to fight you. What happened to him? Allahu Akbar. Instead of worry and concern he decided, you know what we are going to hand our affairs to Allah. He said, huskvarna law one man working, Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best disposal of our affairs. Remember, if they manage to harm you even a little,
perhaps long term, there is some benefit for you. Take a look at the battles that took place at the time of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam when they went for Amara, and they were not allowed to enter they struck a treaty in today BIA and they came back some of the companions were saying How can this be unless now lol hefty. Are we not on the straight path on the truth on the straight and narrow? Why would it be that we had to strike an agreement with these people that we are going to go back without the oma and Allah revealed versus In fact, lack effort has
been? Indeed we have granted you an outright clear victory. People like Mr. Malhotra the Allahu anhu and some of the companions were asking a photron who is this actually a victory we are going back? Hang on be patience. Victory comes with those who are patient alum anessa Rama sobre you need to know that victory comes with patience. If not today, tomorrow you will have your day of smiling Subhan Allah tomorrow you will have your day of smiling you will be happy you will achieve victory. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told them if Allah calls it victory, it is indeed victory. A few years later, they entered back into Mecca tal mocha Rama victorious the victory of
Makkah, there were hundreds of 1000s in fact, the Sahaba Allahu anhu were in their 10s of 1000s. And do you know what? The Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam on the day of victory when he knew I want it now? Subhan Allah, he was the most humble ever. He was not arrogant. He was not haughty. Anyone who sought forgiveness on that day was forgiven. Not only that, when he had the power, when he was able to do what ever he wanted to do with his enemies. What did he choose to do? He asked them a question. And I love this question because it teaches me a lot when you are powerful when you have wealth when you have authority when you are a person who has people under him when you
are the you know the boss as they say you think you are, what will you do?
The prophets of Salaam was higher than all of that. Those are mere descriptions of the dunya he was a follow on halki wa Chroma Russell. He was the most noble of all prophets the best of all creation. Here comes the prophets of Salaam asking them. Yo Mashallah, ma Tanana nifa. A lot of people have kurush and each one of them standing they they know what they did. They know they harmed. They know they killed. They know they stole they know they oppressed. They know they wronged but they're standing quietly in front of this man who has a huge army, he's come victorious. He's asking them. What do you think I'm going to do to you today?
What are they going to say?
They are hoping for good. We are wishing that you will do something good. He says is have fun to move to LA ca go all of you You are free. No retribution. Today I'm going to tell you what the prophet Yusuf alayhi salam, Joseph May peace be upon him, told his brothers latter three by Allah Kumar Leo. There is no retribution against you today. Go Go. You guys are all free. Don't worry. Let's learn to put the past behind us and let's move forward and progress. My brothers, my sisters, that day will come when we will witness the victory. But there is a condition.
What is the condition? Let's listen to it from Revelation. It's much better than for us to just say it. Moosa alayhi salatu was Salam. He was oppressed, the people of Banu israa in they were oppressed by the pharaoh for years on end
power on and Moosa the two of them. Moses and Aaron May peace be upon them. They make a dua to Allah after years of hardship.
what do they say? They say Oh Allah we're watching this man. He is causing more and more problems. The longer you leave him, the more he is creating disaster.

Annie. Oh, Allah, extinguish their wealth. Oh Allah harden their hearts, tighten their hearts. Imagine to extinguish wealth. It Miss Allah Amalia him, you know, Thomas, is to switch it off. All a switch of their income, not only their income, destroy them completely. Why would the Prophet say this after years? on end, he is saying Oh Allah, these people are not going to learn until and unless they see the punishment. Now that was a dua that he made out of desperation right at the end. Do you know what Allah tells him? And this is the point that I'm raising.
Carla cada ouji, but don't want to come. First. akima.
Sabina, Nadine Allah, Allah moon, Allah says, I want you to know that I have answered your prayer. So both of you need to remain steadfast. until you see the prayer coming through in front of you. The Prayer is answered. But it took some time before it was seen. Allah says I hear you all the time. If I say Oh, Allah helped me, Allah heard it, he heard it, he knows it. He responded, but he may not give me exactly what I want right now. But already it's in the works. It's in the process, it's going to come sooner or later.
In some scenarios, I might see it in the hereafter. Allah subhanho wa Taala says your your dua is answered, but I want you to be steadfast. So this goes back to what I was saying, victory will come to us for as long as we remain steadfast and we don't follow the paths of those who don't know Allah, those who don't recognize Allah follow the true path. And Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant us victory. I want to end up by a beautiful verse that we read this evening. We spoke about enemies. We spoke about people we don't know. We spoke about hatred and jealousy, et cetera, encapsulated in what happened to the prophets of Salaam and his companions and Musa alayhis salam. At times. We
don't like someone. Why? Whatever the reason is, I'm a human being. I might not feel comfortable with someone, I might just want to stay away from them. Perhaps you're a human. Human Nature is maybe you don't like someone try to understand. When you dislike someone you need to be moderate in that disliking. Perhaps tomorrow, they might become friends of yours. Perhaps tomorrow they might become close to you. Subhan Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us why Allah journeyman

Dino Dino Acorah boonie. Duck telco? What telco long, don't ever let your hatred for someone make you be unjust towards them. Subhan Allah, Allah says be just that is closer to piety. When you have a relationship with Allah, if you don't like someone you don't like them, don't start lying about them. Don't create stories about them don't want to hurt them and harm them in an unjustified way completely unjustified because then you are the one who's wrong. How will the help of Allah come to you? So do not let your hatred of someone or let's use the term dislike your dislike of someone make you do something oppressive towards them be just, that is Allah subhanho wa Taala has connection
between you and him and it manifests that you really are bothered about the day you're going to meet with Allah. May Allah make our accounting on that day easy. May Allah forgive our shortcomings May Allah gather us in Jan nettle filled dose and May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us in a way that we can become the best of people prior to our death. And this is why the prophets of Salaam used to say Allah homage alpha Yamuna, our hero ha ha Kira Medina, Swati Maha. Oh Allah let the best of our days be the last days and let the best of our deeds be
The last of the deeds we are going to do on earth. And then the prophets are seldom says man Khan Academy mina dounia na ilaha illa Allah de Khalil Jana. Whoever's last words before they leave the dunya is La ilaha illa Allah, that person will enter Jannah mohammadu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam akula Kohli hada sallallahu wasallam Obara Kala Nabina.
