00:00:12--> 00:01:04

A Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh my brothers and sisters seeking assistance from patients and prayer has been mentioned more than once in the Quran, even more than once in Sumatra Baqarah. So Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in verse number 153, of Surah Baqarah he says, Yeah, are you a loving? Man? Oh, you who believe is studying over savani was sila. Oh, you who believe seek assistance, seek help through pain, patients and prayer. I've spoken about this in the past. But the point I want to raise is the verse that follows it says, in law Hamas saw beauty siberie Indeed, Allah is with those who bear patients. Allah is with those who bear patients. So this is something

00:01:04--> 00:01:47

that we are taught. We have hope that when I'm bearing patients, Allah is with me.

00:02:26--> 00:02:41

Don't use the term on what for them, because they have a different type of a life with Allah, they are being sustained. Look at verse number 153. Allah says, while a taco Lamy Yokota lofi, Sabine,

But I may find out one day, he's only told us that I connect the body and the soul so that you can have a response to that. greeting. Subhana Allah Subhan Allah That's amazing. So we say that yes, there is a life known by Allah what type of life it is, but we're all going to go back to Allah. That's why Allah tells us that a Latina either or cyber Tomasi button, those home when calamity strikes, the first thing they say is in nalgonda, hearing that

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

whatever has happened, we all belong to Allah, and we're all going to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala that itself is already healing. Because calamity has just struck, and I am relating everything to Allah to say, look, I came from Allah, whatever has happened is in the hands of Allah, I'm going to return to Allah and we're all going to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala in that there is a lot of healing and there is hope in the mercy of Allah. So this is why, in the very next verse, Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us, I'm going to test all of you with what shade in mineral health there will be some fear in your life, you'll be scared sometimes there will be some fear sometimes

00:05:00--> 00:05:09
