Hey, Mina, Shane
spin up from the
last year of the province of the line, I said, I've been given the task tonight to give you a little glimpse of the tests that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went through the IP Tila. And so what I want you to do, instead of looking at this from the third person, I want you to look at it from the first person, as if these events had happened to you, as if the events had happened to you. So when I say that this such and such happen, but I want you to imagine, as if it had happened to you, all right.
And so, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was born.
And immediately after that his father died.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam grew up with no father.
He was raised by his mother.
And at a very young age,
the Prophet sallallahu Sallam lost his mother as well.
And so now, even in his infancy when he's just an age of around six years old, seven years old, he's now going into the world with no mother, no father.
And so his grandfather begins to take care of him and love him.
And as Abdulmutallab is taken care of him,
soon dies as well.
And now he's lost his father. We never knew he's lost his mother, and he's lost his grandfather.
And he's an orphan in Mecca.
His uncle Abu Qatada begins to take care of him.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was never known for any of the vices that the kurush were known for the the people in Mecca, they would drink alcohol or they would.
They would drink alcohol or bury their women or whatever it was that they're the profits of a licen had nothing to do with that. He was, as they knew him to be the most trustful person in their entire society. A slug. I mean, not only that, but when Khadija de la Han Han, who was a very successful businesswoman in Mecca, she would send out the caravans, she noticed that this was a man that was of the most or the most trustworthy amongst all the men. And so she placed him in charge of her caravan
that would go to Syria and come back. And so the prophets of ilani sent him at that time and it received revelation. He was 25 years old. He took care of her caravan, and where everybody else was just going making a profit and coming back with a profit. The profit sort of lies in a one to Mecca, sorry, went to Syria, made a profit and then bought items. And then when he came back to Mecca, he also sold it in Mecca. So he got double the profit. Khadija de la Han asked her uncle to speak to Mohammed salani said I'm about getting married.
And they got married. It was his first wife Khadija, Leila Han. And from Khadija he had the majority of his children,
when the prophets of Allah honey was sent and received revelation
in the beginning, he as he he went, and it was getting older and towards age 14, the prophets Allah Linus and him used to go up to a cave. And that cave till today if you go to the Kaaba, and you're standing in the cabinet, you will notice all these huge hotels around the Kaaba. Actually, they're building a new hotel there. It's huge. But there's still a mountain
That you can see right when you're doing to off. Some of you might if you've been to Mecca, you don't recognize that mountain. But there's a huge mountain in the distance that isn't covered by hotels.
And from the courtyard of the cab, but you can see it. That's how it hit off. That's the Cave of Hill. And that's where the profits are, unless it's an extremely difficult climb. Right? If you're thinking yeah, I want to go visit the it's maybe an hour walk upwards, it's extremely high bigger than those high hotels, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to go there, and worship at 100. And you'll see this in Sahih Bukhari. It's one of the first Hadees the prophets of Allah has sent him. He loves to go up to the mountain of gupton, to the cave of Hira and contemplate the situation that his people in humanity was in, and the vices that were happening, and so on. And on that mountain,
the prophet said a lot he was sent him You can imagine
the fear that comes to prison when you're just alone, in a cave on the top of the mountain, and then a man appears.
And so he's on and then the man is telling him to read.
And so the Prophet said a license him said, Tim, he said, I can't read. And a lot of people forget this part about that story, and many of you are familiar with it. God bless them Angel Gabriel. He grabbed the profits of the line, he cinnamony squeezed him
and he pressed him so hard to not only the fear of seeing that person there, but he pressed him so hard, until the prophesized him said, I felt I was gonna die. And then he let go of, and then he said, read, and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, I can't read. And then he squeezed him again, into the province of ally sent him said that I felt I was gonna die. And then he said to read, he said, I can't read. And then he pressed him again until he felt he was gonna die.
And then he said, I'm told him, this pair up the color, the HELOC, HELOC in Santa
Clara bucola. calm. And they are lemon and lemon in Santa, Madame IANA.
And so the Prophet sallallahu sent him as he was walking away. And he saw jabril in this stance and another point Afterwards, he saw jabril in his original creation,
covering the entire horizon. Nobody saw Jeopardy, but the Prophet civilize them saw him and so he came home.
And his wife Khadija she said, What's wrong? And he said, just cover me up. And he was shaking. He said, Sam Malone is a middle. He said, just cover me. The profits are the lightest and I
was so scared
about what had taken place. And in fact, after that Khadija Leilani OC in the Sierra, she said, Allah would never do this to allow would never disgrace you or humiliate you. Because you fulfill the ties of kinship. You're good to the orphans. anybody needs help. You're the one who helps them. You feed them you take care of them, you will never be humiliated by a loss.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam after that revelation discontinued.
You will see that for many months gibreel didn't come back
until he felt that alone was angry with him.
And so Allah subhana wa tada revealed one of the first suitors to be revealed amongst after sutra, o'clock. Allah subhanaw taala receipts for us, revealed surratt Aloha, Aloha, Laila, either Sasha Mauer dakara bakoma Allah, that Allah Spano Tata is swearing by the daybreak that he hasn't abandoned you, and he's not angry with you.
And so it's a preparation to prepare the profits that align is set up for the enormous tests that are about to come.
And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the beginning.
He wasn't told to tell the people about Islam. He just received revelation. And so the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he went about
and began teaching people secretly. And so you hear about or
you hear about
when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was told to publicly announce snap, to publicly teach the people and publicly call them to Allah subhana wa Tada.
Imagine his happiness, that this is the moment we're all
His people become Muslim, that he's going to tell them
and they're going to go to Jenna, and everybody will be saved.
And so he brought them he called them on the mountain, the mountain, the mountain of Safa. Actually, when people go for Amara, when you visit the Kaaba, you're standing on the same mountain at the profits of the license stood on when he made this announcement. And so he called them out
the profits of the lohana it was sent him he said, Oh, benefit, he's calling them out. Oh, benefit. Yeah, benefit manufacturer at the time of manufacture. They came to the mountain, the province of a lot incentive, said Obando ID, the tribe of idea comes to the mountain. And he started calling them out tribe by tribe by tribe. They left the marketplaces, everybody left what they do, they said, this is a sadhak. This is the truthful one. This is the trustworthy, one who's calling us. So they all gathered around, because this was a place and the way he was calling them was how someone who had just seen an attacking army would be calling them basically, when there's a bomb, and May Allah
protect us. But in those countries, you may have heard, when there's an airstrike that's about to happen, a certain siren goes off. And even a lot of I remember in Winnipeg, where I grew up, there was an IGA you guys remember IGA, there was an IGA and they said if you go to IGA down the street from where our school was, there are bombs sirens on top of the of the of the supermarket, back in the day in the in the world wars, that if you know, you know these people are that people that attack the sirens would go off, they were never used lambda land. We never grew up in that kind of, you know, hearing those sounds, but when you hear that sound,
this was what the prophet said a lot. He said, and this is in Mecca 1400 years ago, this was that sounds
and so he told them that if I tell you that there's an army behind this mountain about to attack you, because this is what the siren is about.
Would you believe me?
And they said yes, we would your assaulted me.
And so he says, For in Nina de la la combinar, da da Vinci. Then our morning you will punishment that's coming right between your hands.
And so out of everybody that was standing there,
his own uncle, his own family
cursed him out in front of everybody. He said,
he said me you perish me be destroyed. You gathered us for that reason. I would have walked away.
And all the people turn their backs on the Prophet said allies a moment that he was expecting them to all become Muslim became the moment of the greatest test that any man has gone through.
And Allah subhana wa tada revealed sort of
that better bethia de de la
de la hub, one moto
Fiji, ha ha de la Mim said Allah subhana wa tada said Tabitha Vila had been water, that the two hands of Abu lahab have perished in his perished map of the non Houma la casa, all his wealth and everything that he's accumulated in life, will avail him nothing. But then began
the trials against the profits that ally said and they couldn't really physically punish the Prophet sallallaahu send them so they had to punish him emotionally, and punish his followers physically, those of whom they could.
So began the name calling.
And amongst the name calling, there's actually a lot of names that the Prophet said a lot is and was accused with, and is the Christ gathered together, they said, what should we call them and all of these names at a certain point they had accused him of the first one was
basically like a fortune teller.
And so they called him a cannon and they were going around telling people that he's a captain. They call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, a Shire,
a poet, someone who just comprise some lines of poetry, and now he's presenting it to the people claiming that he's a prophet. They call the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
And in fact, this is one of the out of the different names that they had used against the prophets of the lion Center. This was the one that they focused on most because when
People would convert stem and people would come back and listen to the profits of a lot a send them, they would say that they've they've fallen under a spell.
And they've done that he's divided the families just like a magician divides the family.
They told they
they claim that the prophets of the lesson, obviously witchcraft is a totally different science. It's about blowing on knots. It's like Voodoo. And all of those things are black magic that you hear. And everyone knew that the prophets of the Lyceum had nothing to do with that. In fact, at one point, there was the story of a man whom, when he came to Mecca, to you know,
you know, to grant give his respects to the Kaaba, they had told him that there's this man named Muhammad, who's a complete, you know, he's mentally ill, he's a magician, he'll throw like witchcraft on you. He's possessed by devils.
And so he and this man, he said, and this is actually in Sahih Muslim. He said, I was so afraid, and that I would go around the cabinet and he would say something to me, just whispered behind my back or something like that. And I would fall under the spell. You said, so much so that I wanted to take like cotton and stuff my ears while I circumambulated the capital while I was doing toe off. And so this man, he saw the profits of the license, I'm sitting in the courtyard reading Quran.
And so every time he passed by, this man was actually a doctor. And he was from a big tribe. He said,
he started feeling pity for me.
And every time he went by, and he saw him, he said, You know what, I've heard the statements of all the soothsayers. I've heard, I've dealt with people have been possessed people have been, you know, afflicted by devils and gins.
And so he said, I'm going to help him.
And he finished, like his toe off and then he went to the profits of the lawn. He sent him and he said to him, I'm a doctor. I hear you're sick. I hear you like mentally you, you know you're possessed by gins and I want to help you.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam responded to him by saying in that hamdulillah Meadow when his dying or when a steady Mayor de la
mejor de falla de la,
la la la, la de la sharika la vie, Shadow Anam, Hamada. I'm Dora. So
this man said to me said,
Can you say that again?
The province of the Lyceum said it again in that 100 And verily All praise belongs to Allah, we praise and we seek his help, whoever a lot dydz there's no one that can misguide them. And whoever law allows to go astray, nobody can guide them all right. I bear witness that there is no God but Allah and I bear witness that I'm the Messenger of Allah.
he said, a shadow Allah Allah, Allah Allah shadow anemometer. So he said, I swear by Allah, that I've heard the statements of the magicians, those possessed by devils, the jinns the crazy, said, I swear by law, this is not the words of those who are possessed. And so began the name column of the prophets on a lot is that I mean, you're getting a little glimpse that nobody came to Mecca, except that they heard and of the backbiting the standard that was against the profits of them the honey was send them
Allah subhanaw taala says, Welcome on. Oh, yeah, let me know Xena hit the crew.
Imagine Oh, and they said to Muhammad, somebody sent me a u haul Latina zilara Hc, O ye who had the remembrance revealed to him in nickel, imagine, oh, you're crazy. You're a madman. This is the prophets that Alon I sent him who they only years before were testifying, that he was the most truthful, truthful amongst them, which they knew. They also used to cut the profits and a lot of a lot I sent him off when he spoke. And so when the Prophet said a lot he sent him would begin speaking to people, and people would gather around to hear the verses of the Quran. They had a man who was good at storytelling.
And so this man every time the Prophet civilize him stood up, he basically stood up beside him, and went on a story of, you know, the Persians. And, you know, 1000 nights in one night, you know, those kind of stories. He was started going into fairy tales, he was the Arabian folk Teller, when he would finish his story, then he would say that I'm telling
stories, and Mohammed is telling stories.
And the only thing that he's telling you is a South Bureau
is nothing more than the stories of those who came before. They're just folk tales and fairy tales. Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran
and they say, a selfie with a warning and they say that it is folktales and fairy tales of those who came before teta Baja, he wrote it with his own hands, that he had to La la, it's being dictated to him, book ratangarh sila in the mornings in the evenings, meaning that he's a con artist that has some guy out in the mountain. that dictates to him the stories and then he just comes to you and he tells you the stories.
The prophets of Allah honey who was sending them.
This began the name calling the emotional torture, until about the fourth year of hedging with the actual physical torture began. And so some of the profits of aloha to Sam's closest family was tortured amongst them. Earth man on the other hand, now if mama Viola Han who was amongst from the most noblest of family, why was he tortured? And the answer is that his own uncle tortured him.
What they would do is even the noble I mean, obviously the the weaker of the Muslims were tortured, no one could defend them. But those who are even from a fluent families would still be tortured by their own family members. And so this is not some foreign person torturing them. This is their own blood. I found I've met him not found on the line who by his uncle, he will be placed on palm trees, and underneath the fire would be lit so that his back would burn. And so when you hear about the migration to Abyssinia, to Habesha, with my mother in law, Han, who was part of that, you would say, Why is he Why did he go
and it's because of his own family's torture against him. North mantle Dylan was married to the daughter of the prophets of Allah honey center, you'll see someone like most of them, no matter the line, who is from the most wealthiest families in Mecca, and who, you know, he had the finest clothes and the sweetest smelling perfumes. He was, you know, the coolest kid.
But he believed in the prophets that a lot is in it. And when his mother had found out, she boycotted him, she took everything away from him, everything
until he went to Medina, and he was killed in one of the battles Shaheed, and they didn't have enough clothing to cover his dead body.
And he died a lot a lot.
And so they said that his skin that was so soft, before, you know, he had all those lotions and all those things that affluent families have. It wasn't like that when he went to Medina. And he did all of that for the sake of a snap.
Not only the physical torture, but you can imagine that the profits are behind he was in them
has to see this by his own eyes and can't do anything about it. And so it's not only that, you that someone's being tortured, but you also see it happening, and you can do anything about it as well. And so of those examples, was the family of Yes.
And the family of Yes, it might have been the acid and his his son out of any acid. His father was yes it but the alojado measure mine and his mother was to me.
And Sameera De La Hoya and her and her husband. Yes, they were slaves. And they were being tortured to the maximum
but yet they wouldn't recant and they wouldn't say a word of kufr they wouldn't say a word of disbelief. And so soumaya the Lucha Libre is written in the history books as the first woman to be martyred. The first women woman to be killed Shaheed in the path of a law. She was tortured to the point of death, tortured to the point of death. And so the prophets of the Lani cinema would pass by them. And they're being tortured to the point of death. They were both killed in torture.
And I'm modeling Yes, it did Hitler to Medina without his mother and father.
The prophets of Allah Islam would see them being tortured. And who would say to them subpar, he'd say to them, be patient.
Be patient. It's not that they're going to actually get out of this torture in this life. It's like, be patient.
Because you have an appointment in paradise.
And so they never attended their fate until today, our tears are for them. But actually the for us
because they gave their lives for the sake of is not they didn't recap sobre la is that in the most common agenda and you see below the
pillar that everybody knows the story of below the line that they would pass by
scene villain is not that below was tortured. And then later on, they found out about him. They saw him being tortured every single day.
They saw him.
And so they used to hear him say he had an ad, underneath the rocks that he was being pressed into the ground for his back to burn. They heard him say, a hat and avacado, the lion who would say unique and was
that the one that you're calling is going to save you.
And so this is the torture that they went through.
And so you'll see that they went through this. On top of that, you had one of the companions, who was also a slave, who was tortured hubbardton Padilla I know who's a great companion, but a great lesson was taught to him and all of us, above him an era of nulato de la Han who he was once tortured.
And he came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was angry.
And he said he had a sort of law allotted earlier. And
he said, O Messenger of Allah, once you make Doha for us,
once you pray for us,
and the Prophet said a lot is and he got angry.
He said that there were people that came before you
that they were buried in the ground.
And their bodies, the skin of their bodies, they had metal combs, that they use to tear their skin, every part of their skin was torn away from their body, separated from the meat of their body. And they would be cut in half because of their faith in Allah.
But that didn't make them turn their back on, on on believing in Allah. He said, Well, that cannot come to study in order to put your haste, your haste.
This was in Makkah, Maha badnera understood that it's an issue of patience.
And so you'll see that the prophets of the lion is and this is all just Mecca. These are the beginning of years. This is just the beginning. And they're not fighting back. They're not picking up hands, not picking up arms. It's just torture, punishment. mentally, emotionally, physically, they're just anything that they could think of any type of punishment that you can think of. The corporation did it to the profits that a lot.
profits are the lies in him in those Mecca years.
He lost his uncle apartado.
The only one that was protecting him this whole time, the way that the reason they couldn't physically harm the profits that have lice in him was because of his uncle's position, he wouldn't allow them to harm him. I will taught him died.
And he died without Islam.
And so his own uncle, the prophets that arise in him wanted so desperately, after all that he had held, that he would die on Islam.
And as we said, Imagine you have a relative that close to you, someone would take care of you for 40 years. And they die on.
They die on disbelief in the last panel. And you can ask the brothers and sisters, those who have converted to stamp what it feels like to have your parents not believe in Allah subhanaw taala I remember in Medina University
there's a lot of brothers that that come from different countries. And one of the brothers, he got a letter in those days, there's brothers from Africa. And a lot of those countries they're, they're Christian.
And he had a letter in class and I remember this, I was you know, studying Arabic and Medina University. And everybody was so happy for the brother. And they the teacher came in. And then they they told the teacher they said we have good news. So the brother just received a letter from from Africa that his father had become Muslim.
And the whole class celebrated for the brother
because this is his own father.
This is something that the prophets that ally they sent them didn't get.
He had his uncle die, not in a state of Islam. Allah subhanaw taala revealed in gala demon but you
can guide who you love to guide. Well, kin Allah hi Andy, my
brother, it's a lust pinata, who guides whomever he wishes.
And soon after that, a digital, viola Han had died.
His wife after all these years, who had taken care of him, who had used her welfare system, who, as we just said a few moments ago was there when he received the first revelation. He lost them both both one after the other.
And now basically, his family has no protection, and his wife has died. And he has to spread on this message. How often? Have you seen people when they say that, I'm in so much grief, I can't focus on myself or I'm in the middle of a divorce or my wife has died. And everybody says we understand don't come to work. Don't you know, don't you know, don't worry about this, don't worry about that. The person puts aside their missions. But that wasn't an option for the profits of a lot is. So he went to a party
to look for help.
that perhaps there would be someone in a thought it would protect it.
Because they were going to kill him. Because he has no protection now. So he went to a pot F.
And then I thought if he went to the chiefs of the people of a pi, it's a city out on outside of Mecca.
And he told them about Islam. And he told them to believe in Allah asking for protection and the great reward that they would have.
And so the people of life rejected the prophet SAW the license.
And they said, Get out of our town.
And actually, this day, I said, Oh, the lavon, the wife of the Prophet said, aligning him, she said, was the Battle of where 70 of your companions were killed. Shaheed? Was that the hardest day in your life of the dour? He said, No, it wasn't said the hardest day of my dour was on that day of life.
When the prophets that alized him walked away from the chiefs, the Chiefs told all the slaves in life and all the children and all the foolish people to pick up their rocks, and to stone the prophets and allies.
So he didn't walk out of the town. He walked out stoned.
Until the Prophet set alight his home he walked away from a tie.
And he sat by himself.
And gibreel RSM came down to him.
And he said, Allah Spano, dada heard what you said to people.
And you heard what they sit back. And this the angel of the mountains, at your command, he will destroy them. And the mountains will destroy the people of will be destroyed.
And then the Prophet said a lot they said them in that and I'm telling you it's it was a more painful experience than the Battle of
the prophets, Allah sallallahu this have said no.
He said, perhaps Allah subhanaw taala will bring from their children, people who believe that there's no God but Allah, and that I'm the Messenger of Allah.
A thought if, for those who don't know when the prophets that Eliasson um died, who was one of the few places that kept firm on their Islam was one of the most blessed places after the prophets that have I sent him a diet.
He returned to Mecca.
And someone had given him sank sanctuary,
but only for a little time.
As they gathered together to see what they should do with the profits of the Lani center. Some of them said we should jail him. And he said no, some of them said we should expel him. And they said no.
They said the only solution is to kill
as people had began leaving Mecca to go to Medina and in fact, when the profits of the line Islam used to go from tribe to tribe, in hajj, time, they would all gather in hajj. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam used to say to them, hula, hula last, say that there's no God, but Alon, you will be successful, and the people would hear him speaking. And then they would say after that,
who's this man who keeps following him around, calling him a liar, calling him a magician.
They said that his uncle
who would go behind the footsteps of the Prophet salallahu de Sena
and ridicule him
but there was
A blessing group of people who came from Medina
else in the hustle Raj the tribes.
And they heard the message and there were Jews who lived in Medina, who used to say that a prophet was coming. And when they saw the prophets that ally said them, they knew that this is who the Jews were speaking about.
This was the chosen one. This was the promised prophet.
And so they believed in the Prophet sallallahu.
Allah bus, the uncle of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, they had a secret meaning and how much time and with the people of Medina, and he said that he's protected we will protect him here in Mecca. But if we hand them over to you, Do you promise to protect him, like you protect your women and children. And they said, We promise to protect him. And they pledged allegiance to the prophets that ally sent them as they are. And that area was known as a la Cava. And so it was known as they are de la Cava. They pledged allegiance to defend their profits that ally cinemas, they would defend their women and their children. And so the prophets that ally sent him went to Medina, but only after they
had put a ransom that he'd be killed at any price.
And so that night, I think it'll be a long line who went to sleep
to die in the bed of the Prophet sallallahu sent him because they had surrounded the house and they were going to kill him. Multiple tribes were going to kill the Prophet civilize them together.
And so during the night, the prophet civilize and escaped, and he went on his journey to Medina.
And there's more to go in. in Medina, you have the Battle of better. You have the Battle of
you have the Battle of 100. You have the conquest of Mecca, you have multiple battles, in which a companion after companion was killed. Shaheed, you have in Medina, when people started spreading rumors about the profits that Elias and his wife that she had done this and she had done that and they hurt the profits that ally sent him from his family from inside. And you keep going on and on and on, about what the prophets that ally sent him went through.
What keeps the person strong?
What keeps the person strong during these trials?
Number one, is unshakable belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Meaning that they might go through the trial, no matter how intense it is, their belief and their faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala is unshakable. And so that keeps them strong.
Allah subhana wa tada says in the Quran, the M azova. taboo.
Allah subhanaw taala says, As for the foam, like the foam on the sea, it disappears. Because it's just scum. It's just, it's filthy. There's no benefit to it. In time, it just disappears. What a million foreigners, but rather that which benefits the benefits the people for them to fill out. It's established in the land.
Secondly, is their belief in the hereafter?
Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, you're not
gonna be here miskeen Oh, it
just says that they feed for the love of Allah subhana wa tada miskeen, the the needy, the orphans, and the and the prisoners, and they say, in no time only
that we're feeding you for the sake of Allah. And all of this, all this cherried all the lives that they're giving is because their belief in the hereafter because they know that their award is with Allah subhana wa Tada. They're not seeking thanks from anybody, and they're not seeking any worldly reward for it.
Thirdly, that the Quran was always with them. And so you saw For example, when Abu lahab had said what he said to the Prophet said, ally said I'm Allah Subhana, Donner revealed sort of love. You saw when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
feared for his life, and the revelation was diskant was discontinued for some portion for some time
that our last panel data revealed sort of
revealed Serato and so the Quran was always there, teaching themselves
Stories of those who came before the lessons of those who came before and how they were patient, and how ultimately, success is always for the believer, which is point number four. that success is always for the believer. There's absolutely no doubt in that. There is absolutely no doubt that the one who believes in Allah subhanaw taala will ultimately be the victim.
There's no doubt in that. You will see in story after story in the Quran. As you see the story of who then you see the story of sada you see the story of Mossad as you see the story of the Saudis. And I'm always in the end, you'll see Allah subhanaw taala says, while cleaver told me
that the end is always for the believer is always for them.
They will always be victorious in the end, and no one can take that victory away from them. But the person has to be patient and see that final end.
In conclusion, want us to just give you a little something that you can take with you, inshallah, that even
as we said, we want all these lectures to be something that's effective, something that actually has an effect in your lives. And it has an effect when you start asking yourself the question, How can I use this? How can I use this for my own life. And so one of the things that you have to realize, and I'll give you this analogy, is once a doctor,
and and the doctor was standing, you know, he'd come out of his hospital, and there's like a river that's nearby, and so on. And he sees someone going down the river, and they're drowning. And so the doctor, he says, I'm a doctor, I can say he jumps in the water pulls the guy out. And he's like, doing mouth to mouth CPR the deal, I think I was like, okay, and as he's saving this person,
someone's coming down the street, dogs, like I can save you, I can save you jumps in the street, pulls the person out, brings out CPR, you know, he's saving him the person like coffee, then they come back, and then someone else is coming down the street. He's like, I can save you, I can save you he jumps in the water, pulls them out, does mathematic CPR, I don't think are you guys getting What's happening here?
Then he sees two people coming down the street. He's like, I don't know if I can save two people. But he tries it's difficulty saving them. And then it just hits him
that this isn't the problem.
These people who are going down the street. The problem is who's throwing them in the water?
What is the cause?
That's what the problem is.
And so he's a smart doctor. I don't know any doctors here?
Okay, a lot of doctors are smart. We know this, right? That's what they get paid more than most of them.
He goes down the street and he finds a madman grabbing people and throwing them into the water.
So he does like a citizen's arrest or something like that throws him down, and the solution is solved. And so when you're reflecting on the state of the oma and you see Muslims and countries in situations where they're streaming down the river,
ask yourself what mad thing is doing this?
I'm gonna see it's a madman.
It might be a madman, but a lot and where that madman is there's multiple Mad Men. So sometimes you just blame some madman, there's multiple Mad Men. It's always men, it's not women that are mad.
And so you look at the cause. And once you start focusing on the causes of things, and solving it from the cause, you don't have problems in your life. Anytime you live your life, at focusing on the effect, you will never be able to solve it. You'll never be able to solve the solution. By living your life trying to save those bodies coming down the river, you've got to find out what's causing it. And that's where you need to work on in life. And so working out in your own life. Some people say oh, it's the big corporations, the Walmarts that are doing this to us. You know, it's this and that.
But that's just the effect.
What is the actual cause of the situation that we're in?
And once you start going into your own life, and saying that, what am I going to do and how can I cause my future? How can I cause where I want to drive in life, then happiness is yours.
I still have I just want to say one last thing to one last thing.
And that is the illusion of happiness. This is super fundamental. Okay, this is so fundamental. Are you ready for this one? Right. This is like so fundamental that I even it's it's the number
we have this belief that somewhere somehow there's a paradise on earth.
that some people have this notion that or this belief which messes them up,
that at some point in life, they will make just enough money to forever be happy.
Or they will eat just enough shawarma sandwiches that they will never hope for another shoroma sandwich, or they will have just the right car, that they will forever be happy after that car. Or they will just hear the sweetest thought the sweetest words, your husband or wife and they will feel love for the rest of their life.
Life is not like that. And I think even as I say it, you know that life's not like that. Life is toil. Life is toil if you want to, like just write that on a piece of paper or something like that. Life is, is toil. This is a station and abode of work.
Allah subhanaw taala says, that corridor Hola, poner Santa Fe Cabot that indeed we created humanity, in toil. In work, just how you feel when you're, you know, digging something. That's what life is about.
And once you understand it, then you might find the happiness that you're looking for. Because everybody in life is working. It's just that some are working smartly. And some are working dominantly if that's a word, right. Some people are working for the hereafter. And some people are working for an elusive happiness in the life that they're never going to find. But everybody's working. Everybody's working. Find the person in the biggest mansion with all the success in that you would imagine that someone could have asked him Are you happy? He will say no, I'm feeling a little down today.
With the biggest everything in life that you could possibly have. He's still in toil. Once you understand that life is toil, then we understand that if I'm going to be working then let me work smartly. Let me work to secure allows love for me. So that when I die, Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with me. And he says, Yeah, you have to have enough sudomotor in
Arabic ear all the time, but we'll be here for the Holi theory Paddy by the region.
