A Salaam Alaikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah heywire Allah, Allah He was happy as mine. My brothers and sisters, sometimes when we go through hardship and difficulty, loss of loved ones, perhaps your health, perhaps an amputation, diagnose the disease, loss of a job, perhaps some form of difficulty, the enemy, sometimes whatever it may be any negativity, people will come up to you believers. And what will they tell you they will tell you, their patients Allah will reward you right you've heard that don't worry take it in your stride Allah will reward you bear patients make supper in Allah Hamas Siberian
Allah is with those who bear patients, take it easy, you know, things could have been worse and so on. You know, inshallah, it's a good thing. You'll see the reward in the hereafter when you see the reward of the sickness, it's going to be great and so on. We've heard this so much Subhan Allah,
but we're human. It's difficult, sometimes really hard. We need to heal. We need to have hope. So how does this come about? Where is this from? Like, you know what happened? Okay, let me explain.
The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him says I Jubilee. amerind movement. You know, the affairs of a believer, a true believer are amazing, because nothing bad can ever happen to a true believer. It will always be rewarding for that person. If goodness comes their patient, sorry, they're thankful. So it's always good. And if it's if something negative happens, it's not bad, because they will be our patients and they will be rewarded for their patients. That's a fact. Let's look at the Quran. You look at sort of the tober verse number 52, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, about the war, you see, at the time, the disbelievers they looked at the believers and they said, you guys are
going to lose this battle. The believers were told, you can never lose, no matter what, even if there is a physical loss, you've actually won. How? So? According to the disbelievers of Makkah, they said, We will win and you guys will die. Okay, so Allah says to them, cool health, our bassoon I've been
ill in the last nine. Are you waiting for us to actually get to one of the two good things that can happen to us? What are the two good things either we are victorious over you here, so we will be happy, or if we are killed, we have earned paradise we are martyrs and hamdulillah we're still happy
Subhan Allah say, you mean a believer can't go through, you know, a loss. It's not a loss. This is where we get it from. It's not a loss. The date of death as we know of everyone is predestined. You're going to die on the day you're going to die. Allah has written it, how you die, Allah chooses some people die, you know, in a bad way and some people die in a really good way. And some people have a blessed death and some people don't. May Allah grant us all a blessing good Deaf me. So if a person is martyred in a in a proper course, you know, not just going around, you know, doing silly things and then saying, oh, martyr, no, no, no, we're talking here of proper martyrdom. If a person
has gone through that Allah will grant in Paradise, I mean, you've been murdered, that's martyred and people are stabbed. That's Martin and people fighting for a correct cause his martyrdom Subhana Allah. But if you're just, you know, being silly, and you lose your life, that's not martyrdom at all. Now, if a person does go through that type of situation, and they've lost their life, they actually have earned their paradise. So we will say their patients to those who are left behind, we will tell them don't worry the person had a blessed day. How many times have we said that so many times we've said it to so many people, Allah has given them a bless a death you know, bear patients
don't worry, inshallah you will be reunited in general these are good words that are uttered. And this is something that is a gift from Allah subhanho wa Taala. My brothers and sisters.
So at the time, we are taught, that Allah subhanho wa Taala addressed the believers telling them to inform those disbelievers of Mecca and tell them look, whatever is going to happen to us is victory.
And then you have the prophets are seldom telling us that
never does bad to a believer. The believer will look at it in a way
That way he or she will understand the goodness. And this is where we get those statements from where we say, Oh, you know, don't worry, it's going to be good. Everything's going to be okay. Allah will grant you Be patient inshallah, things will improve. Those are powerful words they were taught to us by Allah and His messenger. They are very, very powerful words. And this is why we need to keep on reminding people, that you know what Allah has favored us. And Allah benefits a true believer, by blessing the believer with contentment, with happiness, with the reassurance with goodness, with hope, and Allah heals the Broken Heart very quickly. It's human nature to miss people
that you've lost. It's human nature to feel within your heart that Oh, you know what, I hope this robbery didn't happen. No, this fire didn't happen. But that was a loss plan. You know,
if there is someone to blame, because they did it, yes, they will take the blame and they must be held accountable. But for us as believers, we will take that in Australia, we will do so knowing, being reassured that you know what that was Allah for me. I'm going to be a patient and work hard and try. People have lost jobs so much has happened. This is all part of the plan of Allah, publicity or Jana, may Allah make it easy for all of us. I want to move on to another verse. where Allah makes mention of
the good news to the believers. I want good news. You would like good news. Who gets good news? Well, the people who do the following okay.
Ebola, I'll be doing a hammy Duna Asahi hona Araki owner a surgeon una una be Maui one na hoona andelman Carrie will have a Luna de How do dilla these beautiful qualities you and I need. Allah says those are the believers whom we will give good news to primarily good news means paradise but it includes the contentment of this world. The happiness in this world the healing of the heart, you know the reassurance and conviction of the soul you're always happy because you know, what do you do? You constantly seek the forgiveness of Allah. When you say Oh ALLAH forgive me, it doesn't mean that you know,
you're not forgiven or something, you repeat it in order to elevate your status. Allah loves those who seek forgiveness when you're seeking forgiveness, the mercy of Allah descends. Whenever you're searching for the mercy of Allah start asking Allah forgiveness for sins you've committed that you know and those that you don't know. So Oh Allah, forgive me utter Ebola. And a Toba is a person who returns to Allah, not just Oh Allah, forgive me but Allah and coming back to you, here I am. Then those who worship Allah fulfill their acts of worship correctly. Those who constantly praise Allah, develop these qualities, those who travel and who move around in the remembrance of Allah and to
remind of Allah and for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Those who are those who bow regularly, those who prostrate regularly meaning they pray their five daily prayers and even more, those who remind others to do good and remind them to stay away from bad and those who don't transgress the limits of Allah. Allah says, give good news to those there are believers. give good news to the believers. Amazing. So if you would like to heal, remember, seek the forgiveness of Allah. Worship Allah correctly. Praise Allah, when you would journey or anything you do should be for the sake of Allah. Find yourself in the bowing position, often for Allah alone, in the prostration position for
Allah alone, make sure that you remind people to do good and you discourage them from that which is wrong in a beautiful way. and protect yourself from transgression. And Allah will grant you the goodness of this word. And the next, I want to end this particular episode by saying, in salt universe, verse number 12, Allah speaks about how men is such that when harm affects man, or he's inflicted by something harmful, he calls out to Allah and supplicates and supplicates on his side and sitting and in all other postures and positions. And then when the harm is actually alleviated. He continues on Earth as though he never ever called out to Allah for any harm that affected him.
Allah says those are the people who have gone beyond the limits. You know, those are the extravagant, those are the people who have gone beyond the limits and that's what they do. Let's not do that. Whenever we call out to Allah for a need or when Allah gives you that need. Don't forget that Allah gave you something. Don't ever forget that Allah cured you. Don't forget you cry to Allah for something and he gave it to you. Allah says Don't forget that we did it for you. Because many people say oh
Didn't do but he did so much for you. It's just one or two things that haven't happened the way you want them to happen so now you're so upset. Let's never turn our backs on unless favours upon us. May Allah bless us grant is healing and grant us renewed hope. Apollo Callie had I was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Xenomania Minato NEMA Who was she
