Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh once again

00:00:06 --> 00:00:06


00:00:08 --> 00:00:50

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah who Allah Allah, he was happy he mean, we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala upon all conditions we send blessings and salutations upon Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his household, his companions, we ask Allah to bless them to bless all those who struggled and strove over the generations in a way that today we are where we are, we've taken the goodness from them, they indeed deserve our prayer for blessings, may Allah bless them, bless every one of us, bless our offspring, those to come up to the end. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala, grant us all every form of goodness, I mean, my brothers and sisters, you and I know that we

00:00:50 --> 00:01:29

were created by a creator. And you and I know that life will not last forever, you and I know that we are going to die one day, whether we like to talk about it or not, it's a reality that's definitely going to come, it's going to happen, you know, you're going to go and you don't know when I know, I'm going to go I don't know when now, when I came onto the earth, it's something amazing and unique. Just like when you came onto the earth, our parents were looking forward to having us, those of you who don't have children, may Allah bless you will offspring who will be the coolness of your eyes. And I mean,

00:01:31 --> 00:01:41

we are excitement within parents of the good news of having a child or being expecting a child is such that

00:01:42 --> 00:01:56

it cannot be described, it needs to be felt, it needs to be felt. In most cases, especially the first child, you're expecting this first child, there is a lot of excitement, there is a little bit of uncertainty.

00:01:57 --> 00:02:40

Normally, the mothers will tell you, you know, when I was expecting, I didn't know, I just hoped in the mercy of Allah, I just knew that so many others have been through this. So I can also do it. But as your belly begins to grow, and as the fetus begins to grow within you, as much as you're happy that the fetus is okay, and it's growing, and it's beginning to kick and it's painful, and it's hurtful and becoming heavy and my back is sore, and I cannot sleep anymore. But there's excitement to say Mashallah, I'm going to be a mother, there is an underlying fear. What is the fear? How is this going to come out? Subhanallah to see what's going to happen here. I wonder Subhanallah that is

00:02:40 --> 00:03:23

quite normal, to be worried to be concerned. How is the labour going to be? But guess what, because you know, of so many others who've gone through it, you know, within yourself, I'm going to cope, I'm going to manage some keep on thinking I can't do it. If you keep on thinking you cannot do it, you will still do it. But you're going to struggle because you didn't have that faith. You didn't have that conviction, we who believe we know that's the plan of Allah, Allah will help you Allah has chosen that way and that path, whether it's through Syrian section or a normal birth, you and I know that it has to happen, and Allah will facilitate it and as painful as it may be. The moment you see

00:03:23 --> 00:03:37

the bundle, it's called a bundle of joy. SubhanAllah you tend to forget things I remember telling my wife or asking her Is it true that as soon as the baby comes on to you, you forget everything? She says temporarily.

00:03:39 --> 00:04:00

That Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease. I don't know if that's the same answer around here with some of our moms which means yes, you are happy, you are excited. It is a sense of relief, Mashallah. But as the child grows, she says, I'll never forget what I went through No way. And you know what, the second time there is a similar fear the third time there is a similar fear with the excitement.

00:04:01 --> 00:04:30

So what will help you there is something that will help you. If you don't have it, you will struggle What is it? The conviction the faith, the reliance upon Allah made me billions of people have been born exactly the same way I'm going to do it by the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you rely on Allah, that is the most powerful act of worship where Allah, Allah can Oh,

00:04:34 --> 00:04:36


00:04:38 --> 00:04:48

and indeed you should lay your trust and reliance totally and wholly upon Allah. If you are a true believer, or if you are true believers.

00:04:50 --> 00:04:59

Your true believers, you need to rely wholly totally on Allah. I've only shown you the beginning of man's life, the life on Earth.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:44

When you came onto the earth, for example, your own parents had to rely on Allah. If they didn't, they would struggle with anxiety, they would struggle with depression and depression is not always caused by a lack of reliance in Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the times that is a contributing factor, we need to understand you don't have to add worries that you don't need to add in your life or upon your brain, your mind and your system and even your heart. You rely upon Allah, He will definitely take care of you. If Allah can take care of the smallest of creatures, don't you think you're bigger than that?

00:05:50 --> 00:05:55

But he will not obey Illa Allah here is Kona.

00:06:07 --> 00:06:16

There is nothing that moves on Earth, except that Allah has guaranteed its sustenance.

00:06:17 --> 00:06:30

Nothing that moves on Earth, except that Allah has guaranteed to provide it what it needs. Subhana Allah, this includes the ends, the ends that you and I don't even see.

00:06:32 --> 00:06:43

And the little mosquitoes Subhanallah that irritate you and I, if that sustenance is rooted in your blood, there's nothing you're going to do about it. It's going to come and get its portion.

00:06:45 --> 00:06:47

So eat less sweets, Mashallah.

00:06:50 --> 00:07:30

May Allah grant us goodness, Allah says in the rest of that verse that Allah knows its place that it's going to come through and where it's going to leave from everything, your birth and death is determined by Allah, everything is already prescribed predestined By Allah, you rely on Allah, Allah says he will provide for every single one, all his creatures, what they need the problem with us, we become depressed because we have what we need. But we want beyond what we need, there is a difference between what you need and what you want. What you want, Allah didn't guarantee he's going to give you what you need, Allah will give it to you. So Han Allah, it's amazing. So what do you

00:07:30 --> 00:08:00

actually need, you don't need the luxuries you don't need so much. And whatever else, you probably need a little bit of food to survive some clothing to cover yourself a little place that you can actually sleep, even if it happens to be under a treat, if that's what Allah has written has provided you what you need, but what you want, Allah still says, I will give you as much as I would like to give you work hard, I will still provide, you know what? To show you that I will actually give you more than not only what you deserve, but more than what you need.

00:08:01 --> 00:08:37

And then it's a test to see Will you share with others? Will you talk to others? Will you communicate with others? Will you help others not only financially and materialistically even by speaking to them? Sometimes talking to someone is more valuable than a million pounds, because you've spoken to them, you've moved them you've changed their lives. People said you know what, you've changed my life. Well, I tell you what, you need to start changing the lives of others in whatever way possible. Sometimes within our own homes. We don't even talk to each other because we forget that reaching out to people primarily starts with speaking to them.

00:08:40 --> 00:09:00

Subhan Allah. So if you rely upon Allah and you understand that Allah created you, number one, he will provide for you He will definitely give you there's no way that Allah can forget you when he's provided for the ends, when he listens to the discussion of the flies. Amazing Subhan Allah.

00:09:01 --> 00:09:28

So look at what Allah says, if you are true believers, you rely on Allah correctly, your reliance should be fully on Allah, you shouldn't be worried take cognizance of the fact that Allah is in charge. I always say when things happen your way say Alhamdulillah when they don't happen your way, say Alhamdulillah twice because they are happening according to your boss, who is Allah, your maker

00:09:29 --> 00:09:39

Subhana Allah, I was reading an article of a sister 1979 having arrived some of you might have seen this having arrived from Syria into America, and she had a little

00:09:40 --> 00:09:56

delay because she refused to take off her scarf in order to take a photograph. And what happened they missed the connecting flights. And as they missed the connecting flight they later discovered that that flight was involved in a crash and everyone died.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

How many of us have been saved by

00:10:00 --> 00:10:41

being delayed. We get angry sometimes agitated because of something that went wrong according to us, but according to Allah, nothing ever went wrong. Somehow Allah, someone can bash your motor vehicle completely. You walk out with a smile. Yes, it doesn't mean you say it's okay. It's okay. Sometimes it's not okay, no, we can get out with a smile and still claim what we have to and still say you were wrong. Yes, I know you were wrong, but it's called an accident. No one did it purposely. But we come out of the vehicle as though they did it intentionally. Come on Subhana Allah, may Allah grant us ease and guide us. Don't be angry when things don't happen your way because in that case,

00:10:41 --> 00:11:08

something is wrong with your belief in Allah. It's not strong enough. You need to believe that Allah was in charge. If you plan to do something you desperately wanted to marry someone, you wanted a specific business, you wanted to buy a specific house, you wanted to do something, you needed a specific dress, you wanted to attend a specific function, and it did not happen your way thank Allah double because it happened his way and he took over. He saved you from something.

00:11:09 --> 00:11:35

And even if you don't realize what he did for you at the time, the fact that you're happy with what Allah decided for you would actually earn you closeness to Allah, Allah decided it for you. So don't worry, you've lost out on nothing. The only time you blame yourself is when Allah has given you the capacity, the ability to do something that is beneficial for you or to protect yourself from some harm. And you sat back and said, Well, if it's decreed, let it happen.

00:11:36 --> 00:12:17

Like the lazy lot of today who sit at home and make do I Oh, Allah, I've been reading five Salah a day, I'm getting a foot ahead. Good. Oh Allah, help me help me. I need sustenance. Oh Allah, I need a minimum of 1000 pounds a week. That makes it 52,000 pounds a year, not a bad salary actually. So Allah give me 1000 pounds a week and you're sitting and you're just your hands are raised and your hands are raised and you're pious, that pious is mistranslated, it's got to do with pies, maybe meat pies. SubhanAllah. Because you cannot sit in your room when Allah has given you the capacity to pick up your phone and look for jobs online from your phone. But you say no, I rely on Allah. That is

00:12:17 --> 00:12:54

false reliance. The Hadith says tie your camel then say I rely on Allah, Allah gave you the capacity. You cannot leave your motor vehicle open with all your pounds dangling from here and there and everything else, you know, that's valuable in your vehicle. And you say, I rely on Allah and Allah alone. He's going to take care of my car while I tell you what, when you come back, everything will be stolen from the car and your car will be gone as well. Why you were foolish. So this is why we say when Allah gave you the capacity to do something, do it use your brain use your energy. That's why the Hadith says

00:12:55 --> 00:13:23

it is Salama and Phalke was telling Billa he will attaches always, always work hard to achieve what is beneficial for you? Did you hear that? Work hard to achieve what is beneficial for you and seek the help of Allah and never give up? Subhanallah that's called proper reliance on Allah. I lost my car I did whatever I could still someone best broke the window and stole something. I say Alhamdulillah I'm okay.

00:13:24 --> 00:13:56

Allah didn't want me to, to perhaps make use of something that was stolen maybe to stolen from me. So this is all the help of Allah, you need to understand how Allah works. If you believe you definitely will be a happy person. Always you'll be content. Agile, polyamory, LogMeIn, the affairs of a true believer are amazing. Why are they amazing? When good comes in his or her direction? He is happy, she's happy. And thanks Allah and thankful to Allah. How do you show gratitude to Allah By the way,

00:13:59 --> 00:14:02

not just by saying, Allah, I'm grateful.

00:14:04 --> 00:14:06

And then we sinned against Allah day and night.

00:14:08 --> 00:14:45

Even if you didn't say, Oh Allah, I'm grateful. But you fulfilled your prayer. You feel you try your best to obey what Allah has instructed you, you tried your best to abstain from prohibition, because Allah has provided for you. In that case, it's true gratitude unto Allah. True gratitude is when you are trying to get closer and closer and closer to your maker. And I'd like to believe that every single one of us without exception within us, we have it that we want to get closer and closer to Allah as time passes, don't we? Anyone who doesn't want to get closer to Allah as time passes? Please show us your hand.

00:14:46 --> 00:14:58

Nobody Mashallah. That's what I expected. Because it goes to show deep down we love Allah. And guess what, I have good news for you today. Allah loves you to Subhana Allah.

00:14:59 --> 00:14:59

We see

00:15:00 --> 00:15:39

Here, we want to hear a motivation. We want to feel like we're believers. muslimeen we're good and hamdulillah we're trying, I know that Allah loves us, because he's provided for us much more than we actually need much more than we deserve at times. If you take a look at how strong we are, myself included, we need a lot of attention. We need so much of help. We need to improve ourselves from so many different angles. And you know what Allah still provides and he still gives, and he gives you more and he gives you more, and he gives you this happiness and that happiness may never make us from those who transgress as a result of the gifts that he gives us. But still he keeps giving us

00:15:39 --> 00:15:49

even though we transgress, look at how merciful Allah is. How can you not rely on Allah? How can you not trust Allah when Allah has promised you things and Allah has delivered those on those promises?

00:15:51 --> 00:16:06

Allah says, I'll take care of you. Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us Don't doubt people don't doubt people don't suspect for nothing. Yes, if there's reason to suspect you may do so. But only if there's reason.

00:16:08 --> 00:16:41

If there's no reason you don't suspect people. You don't spy on people. Allah says, Leave it to us. Don't spy on people. Because if you spy we want to teach you something Allah says to us, I am the Most Merciful, the most forgiving, someone might have committed a mistake, I will forgive them. They will change their lives they will become how many of us have been weak in the past, and we've committed sin, and we've changed our lives and we no longer commit those sins. But we would be embarrassed to admit what type of sins we've committed in the past. Many of us, don't you agree?

00:16:42 --> 00:17:10

Imagine if someone had to spy on you and knew what you were up to. They would never forgive you or they would never look at you with the eye of positivity ever because they knew what you were up to. But your life has changed. You're genuinely a changed person. Only Allah understands that. I tell you, my brothers and sisters, the whole world will let you down. absolutely everyone will let you down but Allah will not let you down. Allah says my worship,

00:17:11 --> 00:17:17

I will forgive you. By you just asking me for forgiveness. Even if your sins were

00:17:19 --> 00:18:05

as much as would feel from the earth to the skies. You want to hear the words. Yamuna de la, Lu Bella katsunobu Karina sama, he must have felt any refer to la caja wanna Oberlin? Nikita Nila to Chico be shy and the Hadith says, Oh son of Adam. If your sins had filled from the earth, to the skies, full of writing, meaning if they had filled that whole space, that's how many sins you came with on the Day of Judgment. But you came without associating partners with me, you worship me You tried. I can forgive your sins without even being bothered. It won't really affect anything at all on my side.

00:18:07 --> 00:18:38

So Allah is telling us, oh, son of Adam, no matter what you've done, have hope, in my mercy. Oh, son of Adam, your acts of worship benefit you they don't benefit me. So trust that I will accept them from you. Did you try this I tried, accepted. Don't let the devil come to you and make you lose your faith in Allah. You have faith in Allah. What is the faith in Allah? He is a for Rahim. What do what is the loving, the Most Merciful, the most forgiving, the most compassionate, that is who Allah is.

00:18:39 --> 00:19:02

Have you ever thought about it when we say Bismillah he the first words, as we're reading the Quran, what do we say Bismillahi r Rahmani r Rahim. In the name of Allah, what did he choose? as the ultimate of the first two names for us to be repeating? What did he choose? Number one, a rough man? What's that?

00:19:04 --> 00:19:35

The Most Merciful, the Entirely Merciful. He is merciful even upon those who don't deserve His mercy. Subhana Allah, that's what the meaning of our man. And then he says to him, he has a specialized mercy for those who believe they will feel that mercy because of that belief and conviction. When you are convinced with Allah when you rely on Allah, when you know that the good that came to me is definitely a blessing from Allah and the test. And the bad that came to me is also a blessing from Allah and the test, then you have true belief, then you're a believer.

00:19:37 --> 00:19:59

But if you think the bad is always a punishment, it's not it's not. You know, we have tsunamis, we have natural disasters, we have death. We have so many other things, disease, sickness, a lot of these things are actually a blessing from Allah. Yes, it can be a punishment. It's all got to do with your own condition. Someone said Oh, look at Allah punishing the people of Indonesia.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:28

Because of what they've been doing, and I got up and I said, it's my duty to tell you that that is not necessarily a punishment. What about those who died while they were Institute? What about those who died while they were trying to read for an What about those who are decent people who died and they were martyred or perhaps killed in that natural disaster? Can you ever say that it was the punishment of Allah? No, it was not. It was the mercy of Allah upon them, they died in a good condition, how many of us would like to die in sujood? I would like to die and so do

00:20:29 --> 00:20:30


00:20:31 --> 00:20:39

So if Allah took you away into Jude, no matter how he took you away, but isn't it a blessing of Allah, you will be resurrected, perhaps in a similar way.

00:20:41 --> 00:21:06

And people say, I was punished, you see, because he died natural disaster, you don't know. It was the mercy of Allah. But if someone was in the disobedience of Allah at the time, that's between them and Allah, may Allah subhanho wa Taala not do that to us. So it could be the same disaster could be a punishment for some and the mercy for others. Depending on how you are and those who have survived. It depends on the condition of your heart.

00:21:07 --> 00:21:31

Those who have survived it depends on the condition of your heart. SubhanAllah if you're a happy person, if you're, if you're always happy, and you make the most of what's left with you, then you're definitely a believer, you believe in Allah. It's definitely a means of closeness to Allah. How many of us when we've had disease and sickness, have we become better Muslims? Wow.

00:21:33 --> 00:21:37

So isn't that a sign of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:21:38 --> 00:22:10

It softened us It made us fulfill salah and how many of us once we get cured, we back with our old ways and habits. May that not happen to us, maybe we will always be from those whom when were cured, we change our lives as well. And not just sickness, people cry for things to Allah, Allah, I need a child I need a child. And Mashallah, after eight years, 10 years, 12 years, 14 years, I know. 18 years I've known of one case, they were blessed with a child Subhan Allah. May Allah bless all of us with children. I mean, even if you're not married to say, I mean,

00:22:11 --> 00:22:45

you might be laughing why I can tell you why. When you say Oh Allah grant me with good offspring who will be the coolness of my eyes. It's like, a full package. It means Firstly, in order to get that I need a husband. Right? So that's included in it. Okay. And I mean, it's like if you if you don't have a job and you say Oh, Allah helped me to buy a lovely expensive cup, just an example right? It means you firstly going to have to get a job and earn the money or something's gonna have to happen for the money to come to you. Right? So in the same way when you say Oh, Allah grant me pious offspring it means Allah gave me the best spouse and thereafter with us, give us the good Osman so

00:22:45 --> 00:22:48

it's an all inclusive to in one like the shampoo organics Mashallah.

00:22:49 --> 00:23:19

Okay, may Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease so my brothers and sisters rely on Allah I want to give you one example I didn't realize that I've already just got eight minutes left, but I think I'm going to overshoot today it's not like we come to Cardiff every day you know they've got a long break. The reason why there's a very long break is this to Salas there and the timings a little bit awkward. People are saying why is the break so long, I can tell you because we don't want to go out for a Salah come back and then go back for another salah and the timing is so short, to have that little break. You can have a snack we can do a few other things. Read the next salah and then come

00:23:19 --> 00:23:23

back that's why it's a little bit longer so bear with us. Be happy sha

00:23:24 --> 00:23:31

Allah grant us ease mela open our doors. I give you an example. You see Allah promise is true. Yeah.

00:23:33 --> 00:23:57

So in our de la he have gone Oh people Allah has promised to you is absolutely true woman as Dr. Amin Allah he had his woman on the Camino de la Tina, who can there be more truthful than Allah regarding his speech regarding what he has said regarding his promise Cana big.

00:23:59 --> 00:24:31

Una when Allah promises us Jenna and paradise and goodness, he says, this is a promise that you can ask Allah about you can hold him responsible to the promises made. Allah said whoever seeks forgiveness I will forgive them. If you have sought forgiveness and you go on the Day of Judgment you can ask Allah Oh Allah, I sought forgiveness, my forgiveness, you won't even need to ask Allah. Do you know why it will definitely be that your sin is wiped out? Don't lose hope. Don't let a man trap you to make you believe otherwise. Now let me tell you, Allah promised you.

00:24:33 --> 00:24:53

Unfortunately, sometimes man is such we're ready to believe another person but we're not ready to believe Allah. Give you an example. Beautiful example. Okay, so you're looking for a job and suddenly you find a job and they tell you listen, you're going to be paid, you're going to be paid how much what's a good salary per week? Let's see. What's a good salary. Can someone say yes.

00:24:58 --> 00:24:59


00:25:00 --> 00:25:01

I think you're a bit too young.

00:25:03 --> 00:25:05

Okay, say

00:25:06 --> 00:25:40

500 pounds a week. It's a good salary. Okay? Someone's offering you 5000 pounds a week. And they tell you, we pay you monthly. So what's that? How many weeks? Four weeks? 20,000 20,000 a month? Whoa, SubhanAllah. And what's the job? It's simple. You can just work at home. It's just online, you got to do X, Y, and Zed. That's it when you're done. You're okay. So you're working online a few hours and what's happening every day, you're excited. The fact that you got the job was so beautiful, you put your signature on there, or even if you just took the word for it, you're so excited. Finally, and ultimately, someone has promised you that after 30 days, we you're going to

00:25:40 --> 00:25:45

get 20,000 in your bank account. Wow. Wouldn't you be excited? I think I would, right?

00:25:47 --> 00:26:19

So now what happens when 20 days pass? You're so excited because you can start smelling the pounds Mashallah, right 25 days, you can start smelling the perfumes you're going to be buying with those pounds, Mashallah, right 28 days, and you're so excited you starting to plan your outing, and how you're going to take your family and what you're going to hope it's halaal inshallah, but whatever else you're going to be doing, you start planning everything, you're excited, because someone's promised you you work 28 days, 30 days, I'm gonna give you the salary, and you work hard and you're dedicated and you wouldn't like to lose the job and you don't want someone else to take over from

00:26:19 --> 00:26:57

you. And you don't want someone else to prove that they're better than you so that you can be replaced. You don't want any of that you work so hard. And exactly 30 days later, a few hours delay and you're getting excited. You want to think of whether I should call management My money's not reflecting and I need and I've got this commitment and that commitment and suddenly you get an SMS 20,000 the bank and say, well, Mashallah, now we can do it. What happened? What happened? You worked hard for 30 whole days believing another human, that he's going to give you some reward after your job. But when Allah promises you that after you work I'm going to give you you don't believe Allah.

00:26:59 --> 00:27:01

You don't believe Allah. Allah says, We promise you.

00:27:03 --> 00:27:39

If you believe in you do good deeds, we're going to give you a good life. If you try to discipline yourself, we'll give you a good life. Remember, happiness in this world is not connected to that which is temporary. It's not connected to that which is haram that which is prohibited because it will only give you moments of pleasure, but long term, it's going to come back to haunt you cannot do that to us. Unless you've repented. Sometimes even if you've repented. From a worldly perspective, it could come back to haunt you how many people have tattooed themselves and later repented to Allah the sin is totally forgiven. But if it's a permanent tattoo, guess what happens?

00:27:39 --> 00:27:51

As forgiven as you are as seamless as you are as spotless as you? Are you still going to be having a big tattoo somewhere because it was permanent tattoo You did? At the time when you were sinning? It doesn't mean you're not forgiven.

00:27:54 --> 00:28:34

Someone might say we'll remove it. No, sometimes it's more harmful to remove that. If you can remove something that's not really permanent, then let it be. But if it's a big one, you will have to live with it. Even though in the eyes of Allah. You're a clean worshipper of Allah. But you had to live with the mistake you made. The same applies sometimes we pay for things on a worldly basis, but in the eyes of Allah, we don't. Allah says you know what i forgiven you. So when Allah has promised you Jenna, if you do X, Y, and Zed rely on Allah, believe him have hope. As you grow older, and as you become Subhana Allah as you grow older, and as you become terminally ill perhaps May Allah grant us

00:28:34 --> 00:29:10

all cure. But there is only one way to survive that having hope in the mercy of Allah. You've been through a divorce, you've been through so much, you someone's diagnosed you with something you don't know what's going to happen. You can either be cured or you can either lose your life either way, I have hope in the mercy of Allah, ultimately, I'm going to die. I want Jana I have hoped in the mercy of Allah that I'm definitely going to gender and inshallah we meet each other they say I mean, in the company of Mohammed Salah Salim I'm convinced, I'm totally convinced because I'm not going to enter Jannah through my deeds, it's just my trial, but the mercy of Allah is what will get us into

00:29:10 --> 00:29:17

Jenna. It's the mercy of Allah. It's not my deeds. Allah doesn't mean anything. You know what Allah subhanho wa Taala says,

00:29:18 --> 00:29:59

Adam, oh, son of Adam, Evo, all of you were together upon the highest level of piety and the person who's the most pious ever, all of you on that level, it wouldn't increase in my kingdom, even a droplet nothing, nothing increase. And if all of you are as simple as the most sinful person on earth, it wouldn't decrease from my kingdom, even a droplet nothing. It's Allah. Rely on Allah. He loves us. He made us who are you trying? Yes, I am. The Magician's at the time of Moses Musa alayhis salam one sajida after which they were executed. How many should you did they fulfill one, that one such that Allah

00:30:00 --> 00:30:05

gave them and granted them Jenna, how many sujood have you and I don't you have opened the mercy of Allah.

00:30:07 --> 00:30:43

Don't you have opened the mercy of Allah keep trying when you falter, don't lose hope. Shaytan makes you lose hope. seek forgiveness again and again and again Subhana Allah, but when Allah promises you Mashallah tabarrok Allah, you need to make sure that you believe that promise of Allah, Allah is the Most Merciful. From this day, we should change the way we look at things. We need to look at things positively. Not everything is negative. Yes, if you have a tough situation at home, you should do something about it in a good way. But don't become despondent. Don't lose hope in the mercy of Allah, Allah knows he's going to give you and that's why one of my favorite verses in the Quran is

00:30:43 --> 00:30:45

in Surah Taha, Allah says, while I

00:30:46 --> 00:31:05

think bukata Rama, very soon your job, your LORD shall give you so much until you become satisfied. That will be in the dunya and the era or just in the Akira just in the hereafter. So what I know I'm going to get it from Allah. I want to end with with the last thing.

00:31:06 --> 00:31:48

My brothers and sisters, the uncertainty that I mentioned, right at the beginning, when a child was being born, I'd like to look at it from a different angle, say they were twins within the womb, as the womb is stretching. And as the little fetus, or the both of them are growing. When they started off, they were very little they had the whole world around them. They thought it was that's it the galaxies hours, they didn't know it was just a womb, you're inside the belly of another human who happens to be your mother. And and you think that wow, I can swim across the whole ocean, right? And then you start growing and what happens? You fighting for space? And then you grow more and more.

00:31:48 --> 00:32:23

And what do you think the only thing you've seen is whatever's coming into you. Perhaps when your mom eats something, you can feel it right? So you must be thinking, Oh, I hope that mineral comes in just guessing. Okay. I hope that that vitamin comes in, I hope this thing happens. There must be something that made us happy at the time because we started kicking at a point. And sometimes it takes a little bit more to say yeah, let it come let it come. You know, so panela whatever happened, but as we became such that we couldn't find space to move. It was like, gosh, what's gonna happen now? I'm sure it's the end of everything. Anyway, nice to have known you, buddy. Right. Nice to have

00:32:23 --> 00:32:47

known you, buddy. Goodbye. There's nothing else to come. That's what probably made according to some have happened. Right? Guess what? That was wrong? Totally wrong. Because according to those two, because they haven't seen the real world out there. They thought that was it. And as they grew, and they thought it's the end, and they must have said their last goodbyes and whatever, suddenly, pop. What happened?

00:32:51 --> 00:32:54

Wow, I can't believe it. You made it to

00:32:55 --> 00:33:17

Subhan Allah. Yeah, we're here. It's so big. It's huge. We thought that was huge. This is real man. You were gonna be here for a long, long time. The same thing repeats itself later on in your life in mind. When you become older, or you or you're on your deathbed, you have to have hope and conviction in the same way that we spoke about those in the womb one day.

00:33:19 --> 00:34:00

Everyone's crying that I'm dead. But yeah, I mean, gentlemen. SubhanAllah. Don't you think that's going to happen by the mercy of Allah? Allah has promised that to you. So don't become despondent. Wow. I'd like you to think deeply about what I said. Don't become despondent. What's the worst thing that could happen to you? You're gonna go back to the west thing. That's the agenda. You're going to get, be convinced rely on Allah. Believe Allah. You need to know that those who truly believe when the verses of the Quran are recited to them, their hearts tremble, their hearts tremble, and you know what happens to them? It boosts their Eman, it strengthens them, and they rely totally on Allah

00:34:00 --> 00:34:20

and believe what Allah says, Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us Oh goodness, I've overshot by four minutes and five seconds but that's fine. Now Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us agenda to those I hope to be speaking to you after the break up guru Cody had Allahu wa Sallim wa barik ala nabina Muhammad Subhana live humbly Aisha panic alarm handig Chateau La La lanterna
