A Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was salam, O Allah Rasool Allah, Allah, Allah, he was happy here, Jermaine, my brothers and sisters, sometimes people plan our downfall. And we don't even know sometimes behind closed doors, people talk about us. They want to harm us. And we don't know. And they are planning and plotting. And sometimes they begin to execute their plots. Suddenly, we find out, wow, this person is doing this against us. And that person may be doing this and sometimes they begin to do it and we feel it and we know they want to steal something from you, they want to attack you, they want to slander you,
they want to drop you down because sometimes that's what some people do, especially when shapen takes over. So what should we do in such a case? Now there are many verses in the Quran that give us a lot of hope. If you look at surah to unfurl, which is a surah, where Allah mentions some of the wars. And Allah Almighty speaks about the plotting of the people of Makkah, at the time of the Prophet Muhammad Salam. And he ends that verse with a beautiful capping that would help all of us verse number 30 of surah to land fall Allah says
what you VM called will be Ken Levine aka fou be Toka we go to Luca Luca regio, kawayan Corona I am Kula Allah hi Alma Kiri. Amazing this. Allah says, remember the time when they were plotting against you,
the disbelievers of Macau, when they were plotting against you, in order to keep you there in Makkah, perhaps you know, in order to hold you, perhaps kidnap you, in order to kill you, in order maybe to remove view. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says, You for a joke. They if they wanted to do one of these things to you, either they would, you know, kidnap you take you away, perhaps hold you against your will or kill you or maybe release you try to remove you from the place. Allah says, but they plan and Allah plans
Wyrm Karuna Wang Kula, they plan and plot they were plotting, but Allah plots Allah plans.
And who is the better of the planners here they more Allah, Allah. And that's why whatever they planned at the time, take a look at what happened.
They initially decided to boycott a professor sanlam you know, sanctions against them three years it didn't work. The Muslims were patient three whole years. No food and drink. They had very little. Then they decided, you know what, we're going to kill him. They tried very hard. They couldn't.
The Allah always protected His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam then they decided we're going to drive him out. You know, guess what? They couldn't they didn't succeed. Allah is the one who chose for the messenger to live in such a way that they couldn't harm him. They tried to follow him they they almost captured him but they didn't you know, Miss is as good as a mile as they say they didn't capture him, it almost did. And he arrived in Madina munawwara where it became the seat of government at that particular time. It was amazing how Allah's plan worked wonders, always. So you do your best. And remember, these are verses of hope they will heal us when we think about how Allah
has protected His Messenger, peace be upon him, not on one occasion, but on 1000s of occasions. And the Muslims, the believers, and generally Allah would protect those who are good, those who are kind, and Allah will grant them always so here Allah is saying when they plan and they plot and Allah plans and plots in fact, also Allah subhanho wa Taala says, One marker one marker Allah, Allah halal mascarene they plot and plan and Allah plans and who is the better of the plotters and planners, it's Allah. Allah is not actually a plot, it's a plan.
So Alhamdulillah hamdulillah and you know, sometimes when we have difficulty and hardship with people, and we don't know whether to make peace with them or not, if they're inclining upon equitable terms, to make peace with you good terms, not that it's unfair, fair terms, to make peace with you. Even if you're in slight doubt, Allah says, make peace with them, no problem. You know, tie all the rope or tie all the loose ends and
make peace with him. Look at verse number 61 of Surah tulang file when Allah speaking about the enemy who was fighting wars against the believers, and Allah says, What? Jana, holy Selim, if at all what our culture
is very inclining towards peace, then make peace with them and lay your trust in Allah because obviously there will be an element of doubt, slight element from a human perspective, you might say, making peace with this person, but they might do this again to me, while you say look, you know what, I'm laying my trust in Allah. I've tried my best obviously, if they're showing you their insincerity, and it's clear, then you don't make peace with them just like that. No, no, then you might want to stay away, like we said in a previous episode, but if they're being genuine and legitimate, and you've really feel they're trying, they're giving it their, you know, utmost, then
go for it. Bismillah lay your trust in Allah and go, then in verse number 62, Allah tells you the other scenario, if after making peace with them, they happen to deceive you. Look what happens, Allah says, We're at do their own Kapha inasmuch Allah if they then want to cheat you or deceive you. You need to know a lie sufficient for you. Allah is enough for you. You made peace with them for the sake of Allah. Now, if they want to deceive you, there will be something really good that will come out of that Allah is sufficient for you. So this has spooked Allah, you know, is very powerful. We normally say husband, Allah when Mr. Working Allah is sufficient for us and He is the
best Disposer of our affairs. Get used to that at all times. And when you say it, think about its meaning Allah is enough for me, Allah is enough for me, honestly. And he will look after me and dispose my affairs in the best possible way, no matter who's harming you, who is trying what loss you suffered, don't worry, has when Allah when at Milwaukee, so these are verses also where Allah Almighty is telling us in a beautiful way to lay our trust in Him always. Now I want to move on to Surah tober where Allah Almighty tells us that nothing will happen to you except that which Allah has written against you. You know, there is a Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him where
he tells us he says, you know,
ma Assad McCallum Yaqui Leo, what got to you was never meant to miss you. Well, my akademia Coolio see back and what missed you was never meant to get to this hadith look at it from all contexts and from every angle, and it is true, whether it's wealth, whether it's a bullet, whether it's a relationship, whether it's what ever. Whether it's a huge accident, anything. Allah says if it got to you, it was always meant to get to you, even if it's a message that got to your ears, always meant to get you what missed you was never for you. Now, I believe that firmly because what we also know is Islam.
You know, the Hadith says, For the Lucha phulka if you look after our last commands, Allah will look after you therefore the law, the Gita who to jack, if you look after the commands of Allah, and the what Allah has ordained, he will always be right there in front of you.
What Allah and Allah which domata Allah and he info cache in lumion for oka in NaVi map and ketubot Allah who like, you need to know that if the whole nation gets to you, in order to benefit you with something, they won't be able to do it unless unless written it for you. And the opposite is true. If the whole Omar gets together in order to harm you, they won't be able to harm you a fraction unless Allah has written it against your name, because the pins have been lifted and the pages are all dry, which means the type of data and the destiny is written. So here Allah says in verse number 51, and 52 are sort of tober laoshi bana Illa, kata bon la moulana una y la la he
can email me No, it's an amazing verse. Allah says say, nothing will ever get to us in terms of harm except that which Allah has written for us. Hum Oh good, anything
Who am Alana He is our protector. molar means a protector. He is our protector. And while ally and upon him to the believers lay their trust. You're a believer, you lay your trust upon Allah. So remember this, my brothers and sisters, nothing will harm you except by the will of Allah lay your trust in Allah and you need to know he is your protector and the
You're a true believer. It is that trust that will grant you or give you the healing and the hope. May Allah Almighty really bless every one of us and protect us.
