One owner Xin Amina Lupo Nima who worship

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

A salaam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was happy he a Jemaine, my brothers and sisters, if I were to ask you who is your protector? as a believer, you would say Allah, if I were to ask you, who is sufficient for you, as a believer, you would say Allah, if I were to ask you that, who is going to guard you from evil, you would say, Allah, that is so so true. We need to be convinced that Allah is sufficient for us, and He is the best Disposer of our affairs, which means anything that's going to happen to me, Allah will take care of me. Allah will make sure that he navigates me he helps me

00:01:00--> 00:01:44

navigate through the right path, the right channel, so that ultimately at the end, I come out in the right place. SubhanAllah so I might be going through a few obstacles and hurdles right now, but I'm going to come out in Paradise, I'm going to come out in a much better place, these days will not last forever. When the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was faced with an army that he was told about that was well equipped that was heading in his direction. He made one supplication the same supplication that was made by the prophet Abraham May peace be upon him when he was cast into the hot burning flame by his own father. He said, Hassan Allahu and metalworking, Allah is sufficient for us and He

00:01:44--> 00:02:29

is the best Disposer of our affairs. As a result, Allah granted Ibrahim alayhis salam, safety and security. And as a result, Allah granted the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and his people, the companions, Allah granted them victory. Yes, the war took place. But guess what? They won. They won the war. Against all odds, we've spoken about the Battle of better against all odds, so many times this has happened. And ultimately, finally, what happened? Look where Islam is today. Look at the victory of Makkah. They may have been certain losses during the life of Nabi sallallahu sallam, and at the time of the Sahaba, the Allahu Allah, but ultimately, there was victory. Where is the

00:02:29--> 00:02:48

evidence of it? The number of Muslims on earth today, you and I are sitting studying the Quran and the Sunnah that they fought for. They fought to actually pass it on, they passed it on, we got it. That's a victory. That's a great success. Some of them lost their lives. Allah will grant them martyrdom and Jenna.

00:02:49--> 00:02:50

But they delivered the goods.

00:02:51--> 00:03:34

They struggled for many years they lost some of the battles Subhanallah but ultimately they were victorious. The purpose was achieved Subhana Allah. So this is a dua you need to constantly read when you're feeling unsafe. When you get some bad news. When you feeling insecure, Allah will heal you just call out to Allah husband Allah when the minute you hear someone wants to someone is threatening you husband, Allah, when am I lucky? You're threatening me, Allah is sufficient for me and he is the best Disposer of my affairs. Allah says there is nothing that anyone can do against you. Nothing. So Allah will comfort you hemu Allah gives you the hope. And I'm convinced, nothing

00:03:34--> 00:03:38

can ever happen to me. Except that which Allah has worked.

00:03:39--> 00:03:52

Allah will something I think can stop it. Allah did not will something nobody can do it. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us from that beautiful comfort. Now, in life, we sometimes hear

00:03:53--> 00:04:03

bad words against us, and really bad words. And people had us us and they trouble us because of our belief.

00:04:04--> 00:04:49

I'm a Muslim, to practice Islam is not easy. Sometimes, I may be a Muslim in a family that's not Muslim, that doesn't accept the fact that I'm a Muslim. Sometimes I may be a Muslim in a family of Muslims who are not practicing and they want to practice and they simply don't want and sometimes I am struggling because I'm the only one in my society. Maybe I'm living in a country that has rules that are so backward that they don't allow people to practice their faith. Subhan Allah, what do I do? Well, Allah has told us about this, Allah says, to the messenger, peace be upon him. First number 186 of surah. Allah Imran

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

Allah says, well at this mountain, mineral Medina auto GitHub, I'm in public Marina Marina ash Rocco, Ivan kathira.

00:05:00--> 00:05:28

Allah says you will hear from people of other faiths, perhaps the Jews, the Christians and even the polytheists. Allah says you will hear from them a lot of other, you will hear a lot of harm rumors, they will say false things, they will say the worst of things, they will harass you, they will trouble you, they will probably not allow you at some point to even follow your faith and so on. Allah says we're in the US Bureau with a taco for in Nevada coming as Bill.

00:05:29--> 00:05:55

If you bear sub antiqua same two qualities we've been speaking about for so many days. So this element of cyber antiqua is actually an element of healing. Allah wants you to worship Him, bear patients practice restraint, and develop a relationship with him. Fulfill you continue fulfilling your obligations unto Allah Subhana Allah, Allah says we're industrial with a taco. If you have sobrang taco, that's the best thing you could do.

00:05:56--> 00:06:35

Last is we know that they're going to talk about you, they're going to make it difficult for you. They're going to say very nasty things about you. They say nasty things about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. They say, totally unfounded things about Islam about the origin. Allah says, Wait, take it in your stride, we will clear it we will clarify it. As for the Quran, there is no chance that they can enter it with any negativity. Because unless we reveal the book, we will protect it. That's what Allah says. So I don't need to worry. Same applies where Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us their sovereign taqwa no matter what they've said, it's not going to affect you,

00:06:36--> 00:06:37

by the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:06:39--> 00:07:20

So, after that, Allah tells us another beautiful, beautiful method of healing yourself. And that is to contemplate over the creation of a lot the skies, the earth, the rivers, the oceans, Subhanallah, the mountains, the greenery, the plants, the flowers, the animals, the birds, the fish, the human beings, Subhanallah, the creation of Allah. Think about the day, the night the planets Subhan Allah, what Allah has created, look at the moon, look at everything and think about the greatness of the one who made all those things.

00:07:21--> 00:07:54

Ibrahim Alayhi Salam looked at the sun and the moon and the stars. And so panela it drew him It led him to worshiping the maker of all of that. And it developed a beautiful bond for him with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Allah is telling us in verse number 190, of surah, Allah, Allah saying, enough, you help this summer What do you want out of the work enough lady when Holly look at the audit and BB, Allah says, indeed, in the creation of the skies, and the earth,

00:07:55--> 00:08:38

and the rotation of the day and the night, there are Signs for those with intellect, those who remember Allah, those who praise Allah, they remember Allah, standing and sitting and on their science, and they think about all the creation of Allah and then they tell themselves, they say, Rob banner, or our or our Lord, You haven't created all this in vain for nothing. subhanak Glory be to You. Save us from hellfire. The Creator is the one who will protect you, because he is the one you're going to return to you were with him before your date of birth, and you will be with him after your date of death as simple as that. So

00:08:39--> 00:08:53

if you wherever you were, Allah says we're going to bring you back and we're going to give you something even better known as genital Fidel's paradise. So that is something that my brothers and sisters we always need to think about. Do you know

00:08:55--> 00:09:23

Allah tells us to ponder over the creation, look at nature go out see think because he who made all of this is far greater than anything that anyone else has made. SubhanAllah a lot of hope and there is a lot of healing going out and looking at nature, not just to see wow and that's it. No say Masha Allah tabarrok Allah Subhana Allah and hamdulillah Allah Subhana Allah, all praises due to Allah look at the Creator.

00:09:24--> 00:09:53

And towards the end of that Surah Surah Allah Allah tells us don't become obsessed by what we've given others. We've given the believers and the disbelievers when we've given the disbelievers don't become obsessed and think that's a sign of our pleasure. Allah says it's just a temporary moment of pleasure for them and later on, they've lost they wouldn't get anything. Allah says, You need to build your relationship with Allah, perhaps yours is awaiting you later.

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

Whatever Allah has given you here, be thankful. Don't become obsessed by what we've given out.

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

And don't think for a moment, it's a sign of our happiness with them. It's just a sign we've given them for whatever reason, later on. We will give you perhaps in the hereafter.
