respected brothers and sisters

00:01:21--> 00:01:22


00:01:24--> 00:01:26

we thank lungs pantalla

00:01:27--> 00:01:28

our Lord and our creator

granting us the tofield the ability to be here today.

00:01:37--> 00:01:38


00:01:40--> 00:01:46

I thank the organizers, the ISOC, the committee here for inviting me. It's a privilege to be here at

00:01:48--> 00:01:51

Sheffield University. It's my first time at this university

00:01:54--> 00:02:00

we have a very important topic that needs to be discussed a very important title. And

00:02:01--> 00:02:07

I really require your attention because some very important issues in Sharla need to be discussed.

00:02:09--> 00:02:21

The title seems very simple reliance upon Allah and the power of dua. However, I want to talk about this in a very deep way. So sha Allah if you

00:02:22--> 00:02:37

don't go to sleep, and just remaining focused. I went to university once in the middle of summer, just a few months ago last year I remember I just started talking and there was a brother snoring in the in the

00:02:38--> 00:02:42

first row and I said, Brother, can you wake up

00:02:44--> 00:02:50

jet lagged. I said Well, where did you come from from? From the states did you just land

00:02:51--> 00:02:58

actually, just from from around the corner from where he was jet lagged and he just came from from his room. He was just

00:02:59--> 00:03:05

joking. But inshallah it's not too warm as well. So I don't think it will go to sleep.

00:03:06--> 00:03:09

Allah Allah subhanaw taala our lunar crater

00:03:11--> 00:03:23

has blessed us with many gifts and bounces in this life. The greatest Nerima and bounty is of course, the bounty the nebula the gift of iman, of course,

00:03:24--> 00:03:45

and many other great bounties that Allah has blessed us wind down dunya met Allah He later so we can't even count the blessings that Allah has given us. At the same time. Allah subhanaw taala tests us as human beings with trials and tribulations

00:03:46--> 00:04:37

we all go through, we all undergo an experience in our lives, trials and tribulations. These are tests we all have needs, every human being every human, Muslim, non Muslim, righteous, pious or sinful, all of us men, women, children, middle aged, elderly, parents, children, all of us we have needs we are constantly in need of things we are in constant in a state of our needs being fulfilled. We undergo tests and trials and difficulties and hardships and problems we become ill we become sick. Sometimes we have problems in terms of our, our, our wealth, and this is what Allah has mentioned in the Quran. Allah says Allah Allah blue Allah can be Shea mineral healthy will during

00:04:37--> 00:04:45

one up so minute Amani, well unfortunately what Samara Allah she the Saudi? What does Allah say surely we will test you

00:04:46--> 00:04:59

what an eye blue one Norcombe shade we will test you, all of you meaning or was talking to us or humans. We should test you test you in what we shall human health. You will be tested sometime

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

with fear, you will live or you will be in a state of fear. Someone might attack. Right? So

00:05:08--> 00:05:14

the test of fear, behavior, mental health, you will do a hunger. You might become hungry,

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

you might not have enough to eat

00:05:19--> 00:05:59

went up so minute on Word, sometimes you'd have less wealth. You might go and experience and go through a economic crisis in your life, you might not able to pay the bills. Why does Allah do that so that we turn to Allah and I'm coming to that but Allah is telling us that all of us all humans, we all undergo Charles tribulations and test whatever blow under condition you may or hope you will do very well also mentally unwell you will unforce sometimes people around you your loved ones, your family members or law takes them away. That's a test as well. People pass away in the family. We're not similar and when you were unfussy with a Murat and food as well, what was she but then Allah

00:05:59--> 00:06:44

says what does she do Sabri give glad tidings to those who are patient, the ones of Sabah, the ones who exercise and have patience. And who are these people of patients, and then either a small bit who mostly but these are those that when they are afflicted with trials and tribulations or Alou, they say, and not just mere lip service, they actually mean it, they understand the contents of this particular statement. Remember all the statements that we say and we've phrases that we read, it's not just a lip service, many of us as Muslims. Number one, we don't understand the meanings, which is not a major problem, but it makes a massive difference. If you know the meanings of what you are

00:06:44--> 00:06:58

saying what you're reading what you're reciting in salah or outside salah. If you understand the meanings of solar Fatiha, your prayer is transformed. If you know what you what you're saying and what you mean by Subhan Allah subhanaw taala Pirelli.

00:06:59--> 00:07:21

The whole prayer is transformed. So we should make an effort to try to understand the meanings of at least those things that we regularly read and reciting in our daily life. So they don't just say it's by lip service, they understand the contents they mean it Alladhina Asaba Tomasi, Eva, what did they say in in LA, he was in Malaysia, Raja, yoga

00:07:22--> 00:07:59

Rajaram. I mean, there's deep, deep hidden meanings behind this particular statement. I don't have the time to go into it. Surely we all belong to Allah. We belong to Allah, if Allah tests us, we belong to him. We can't complain. We're in Iran, and we will surely be returning to Allah. So this test is no problem. I've only got like 2030 years left. Even if I go through hardship, if I have a problem, or medical disease or illness, it's how many years 20 years, 10 years, four years, how many 5060 You will live to the 60s 65.

00:08:01--> 00:08:48

Life expectancy is very short right now. So this is what this particular verse is saying. In St. Louis, we belong to Allah, if Allah chooses to test us, no problem, I don't have any right to complain. We're in nearly here on your own. And also, the second part of this is that we return to Allah. So it's a very short child, in comparison to the eternal bliss of Jana, the paradise the God in sha Allah. So anyway, this is what Allah is saying that this dunya the world, the way Allah has created this world, is that it's a mixture, a combination of good and bad of test trials, and pleasure, enjoyment and sadness and sorrow. We have Jana, we have Johanna, we have three types of

00:08:48--> 00:08:56

three worlds. We have paradise where there's just bliss, and there's just pleasure and there's just enjoyment. We have hellfire. May Allah save us all.

00:08:57--> 00:09:35

Where there's just only sadness and sorrow and difficulty and hardship. And we have this dunya which is in the middle, when they are happy when they are depressed when they are sad when they are depressed. And this is how this world works. This is how Allah created this world. And there are weak reasons and wisdoms behind it anyway. So we all have difficulties and hardships what do we do in this life? What God and Allah has commanded us what Islam has commanded us what the Quran and Sunnah has commanded us is what what I just said. And what I quoted from the verse of the Quran is Saba if we have if we do face Charles and tribulations we undergo an experience difficulties and

00:09:35--> 00:09:48

hardships. Right? We do some we have we exercise that's mentioned overshadow Savini. But along with some of there are two things and this is what I want to focus on in this talk. There's two very important parts

00:09:49--> 00:09:59

of Muslims life. Both are extremely important brothers and sisters, both if anyone, we have to get the balance right

00:10:00--> 00:10:02

If we as Muslims,

00:10:03--> 00:10:12

if we do not get the balance right between these two aspects, either we go to the right slightly or we go to the left, okay.

00:10:14--> 00:10:26

If we go to the right if you go to the left, then we will be mistaken will be a deviation will be an error and we will not be really practicing the teachings of Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:10:29--> 00:11:02

You understand what I'm saying? We have hardships, we have difficulties, we have problems, we have illnesses, we have sicknesses, we have financial problems, we have economical problems, we have all the problems in the world. Okay. We What does Islam say? What is Allah and His messenger? SallAllahu taala? Who are your salary, salaam commanders? What do they tell us get the balance, right? There's an tendency within some to go to the extreme to the right. And there's a tendency within some to go to the extreme to the left. In the early times, there was one tendency more within people in this day and age has another tendency.

00:11:03--> 00:11:15

These two things that come hand in hand and this is what our core really means. reliance upon Allah, what do we do? We have to number one, our job, our task is we take the means of load.

00:11:16--> 00:11:23

We take the means if we are ill and sick, we visit a doctor. We take medication.

00:11:25--> 00:11:55

We need to earn a livelihood, we need to eat ourselves and provide for our family. And we need to earn a livelihood. What do we do we take the means we study, we pursue a career. We earn a livelihood, not just I'm gonna sit at home and you know what? The roof was split open and a banana is going to drop any woman no, dang, you know, from the heavens. It's not gonna happen like that. A lawless Bob taking the means.

00:11:56--> 00:12:11

Very important. I'm going to talk about both of these two. I'll just say what they are. And then I'll explain both of these two important aspects, taking the means. And number two is relying upon Allah and not on the means.

00:12:12--> 00:12:53

Okay, taking the means we become ill we take medication, we do business, we trade, we work, we pursue careers. We take the means in the world. We don't say you know what, I'm going to rely on Allah to what could rely on Subhan Allah just make a dua that's it. Ultimately, Allah is the provider. Allah is the giver. Allah is the harlot. He is the Razzak, let's say, you know, everything is in the hands of Allah sunnah. You know what I'll just sit at home and if for longest again will give, if Allah wants to provide he'll provide that's a wrong stance to take. And this was a tendency in the earlier time, some people used to rely too much. If I can say that maybe that's not a correct

00:12:53--> 00:13:08

way of saying it relying too much on Allah, but they would not take the means they would shun the means, okay. And the tendency in this day and age within us is we rely too much on the means that the focus on Allah is lost.

00:13:09--> 00:13:12

The balance is 100 us Bob, take the means.

00:13:13--> 00:13:31

But when we take the mean, if you are thirsty, you have to drink water, take the means, but you have to we have to think that it is Allah who is providing this water it is Allah who is who is placing cure in the medicine.

00:13:32--> 00:13:48

It's very important brothers and sisters, you take a paracetamol and you look at the passage and say you know what paracetamol speak sometimes to say, You know what, there's nothing in you. Really they just told us just listen or proceeding right? But I'm just saying, if it was a paracetamol, there's nothing you knew.

00:13:49--> 00:13:57

If Allah doesn't want to kill me with, with you know, paracetamol, sometimes if you want to practice, speak, talk,

00:13:58--> 00:14:16

there's nothing, the only reason why I am actually taking this. Remember, the only reason why we take the means is because God has commanded us to take us take the means will be sinful. So you say you know what, if my God hadn't told me to take you all medicine, you will be there I wouldn't even touch you.

00:14:18--> 00:14:32

Talk, the only reason I am taking you all medicine is because I was sinful. My Lord has commanded me instructed me ordered me to take your medicine. That is our reason. But you know what, there's nothing in you. Really it's in the hands of Allah.

00:14:33--> 00:14:59

Power belongs to Allah, everything belongs to Allah has power to add. We believe that the effect is from Allah. We take the means we take the causes in the world as the bow our reliance our token, our HTML, our trust is on the make of the means on the cell we will as well because Allah is the One who places heat in the fire. If Allah wants to take away

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

The effect from the cause that Allah can do so. If Allah wants to take away heat from the fire like he did would say the Nobel Peace be upon him and he his Salah to after the stream.

00:15:14--> 00:15:24

Remember when he was throwing the fire? What happened? Allah says Allah Ya know, Guney button that was 11 Algebra he we said oh fire become cold

00:15:25--> 00:15:27

and the fire was there but he wasn't that

00:15:28--> 00:15:45

the fire it's not because you see we normally, normally 99% of the time in our life, we have not experienced a fire that doesn't burn. For us to understand the fire does not burn is very difficult. But it's

00:15:46--> 00:16:09

it's the effect is from Allah subhanaw taala. Because we are so accustomed to see fire and burning, it's like we think the fire burns in itself. It's the causes from Allah who have died. So we have to get this balance, right? That medication cure is in the hands of Allah. Right? I mean, the medicine, for example, you go to the doctor,

00:16:10--> 00:16:11

the medicine,

00:16:12--> 00:16:33

who who created the doctor first, first of all, what created who gave the doctor, the medic, the knowledge of medicine. And then the same medication. Sometimes a doctor, a medical friend of mine, he was once telling me, but sometimes it's amazing that sometimes what happens is that the same medication, the same illness, I give it to one patient who is healed.

00:16:34--> 00:16:49

But the other patient is not healed. And sometimes what happens is same patient, blood Abdullah comes twice. Last year he came I gave him prescribed in the same medicine, he was healed. He was cured.

00:16:51--> 00:17:27

This year, the same medicine, same problem, no difference, but it's not working on it. Why? Because it's in the hands of Allah if Allah wants to cure Allah will cure If not, that's why some of the scholars said that, you know, when we take the medicine, the medicine talks to Allah asks Allah, O Allah to give you permission to cure this person or not. Through your effect and through your power and through your CODA and through your mushiya. When you when you do business and trade, again, we take the means we go out we pursue careers, we work hard, we strive, we struggle in this world. But

00:17:28--> 00:17:59

it's all in the hands of Allah who sends the customers, you could go and open your shop in the morning or not even have one customer who says the customer who places in the heart of the customer that go to this particular shop, or go to this businessman or go to this merchant or go to this exporter or go to this importer, or do your you know your goods from this person who places that in the heart of the customers. We say it's the market forces. You know, we say the world works through market forces. There's nothing no, it's Allah's forces.

00:18:01--> 00:18:27

You know, when we say something by coincidence, there's nothing by coincidence in this world brother and sisters, nothing nothing in Islam. There's nothing by coincidence. It's not hard on a ship to take by coincidence, okay. I mean, sometimes people get it, some lady say to say you but we as long as you know in your mind that everything is in the hands and power of Allah subhanaw taala. And that's why what do we say? We say what we say in sha Allah.

00:18:28--> 00:18:29

What does insha Allah mean?

00:18:30--> 00:18:31

What does it mean?

00:18:33--> 00:18:39

If Allah wills, you know, this is something really deep. We say it like you know, it's just lip service, you know, you start

00:18:40--> 00:18:42

becoming sharp, sharp, sharp.

00:18:43--> 00:18:52

In sha Allah, you have to think broadly coming tomorrow, yes, I will be but there's a massive but

00:18:53--> 00:18:56

only if Allah and God wills if he doesn't, I'm not coming brother.

00:18:58--> 00:19:04

Only if Allah wills remember, if only I could something could happen I might not be alive tomorrow. Anything could happen.

00:19:05--> 00:19:51

Only if Allah wills SHA means the mushiya the errata of Allah subhanaw taala we should say it isn't the Quran Waratah Poulan edition in the Faroe Islands Anika Harada in sha Allah, Allah says do not say anything. What are cupola nourish che in don't say about anything that you don't want. I will do it tomorrow. In Neva, Malika harder and I'll be doing this tomorrow. Don't say that. In sha Allah. Say unless Allah wills only four hours, but say it alone. Just say it. Think about it, pull it drill it inculcated in your mind and in your heart wills. I mean, this has to be deeply rooted in the arcade of a Muslim of a believer.

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

So anyway, we have reliance on Allah reliance in Arabic in Islam is known as

00:20:00--> 00:20:12

As the worker, right? I'm sure all of you know that the work could rely on Allah subhanaw taala. What is the real meaning of the work? This is where is Tawakkol reliance on Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:13--> 00:20:32

which is a command which has an obligation, every believer must have this quality trait of Tawakkol relying upon Allah subhanaw taala every one of us, but what is the real meaning of Torkel taking the means, in this world,

00:20:34--> 00:20:36

but after taking the means,

00:20:38--> 00:20:57

assigning the matter to Allah subhanho wa Taala the worker does not mean see, these are two extremes. Let me just talk about them briefly. One extreme in the early time used to be what, some people, some Muslims, they would rely on Allah at the expense of taking the means. This is an extreme to the right.

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

This is an extreme to the right. You know what I rely on Allah, Allah, everything's in the hands of Allah powerful, I will not take the means.

00:21:10--> 00:21:18

Actually, in the time of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they will upheaval. It's in the Hadith in Bukhari and elsewhere.

00:21:19--> 00:21:20

The famous Hadith

00:21:21--> 00:21:41

that the people of Yemen would come you how Judah they would come to perform hajj, while either they will do they will not bring any provision any food and drink with them. Because remember, there was just like a five hour Saudi Airlines flight in those days, those days. It was a long journey a month, two months, but they will not bring nothing.

00:21:42--> 00:21:47

We don't want our Chiune they would say you know what we are the people have to work good.

00:21:48--> 00:22:14

We'll just go we're going to perform hygiene. Allah will give us food and then well you know what used to happen. They used to beg and ask people when they used to convert can Medina This happened in the time of the messenger of allah sallallahu wasallam for unzer Allah Allah Allah revealed verses in the Quran Allah said What does the word do for him the higher reserve the Tarkwa take provision with you that take something with you.

00:22:16--> 00:22:20

Take food with you take your sandwich review. Don't go back

00:22:21--> 00:22:30

in the early times, this was a tendency people used to rely toward Quran Allah extreme to the right. Some of them they used to think you know what cool means what?

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

stop learning.

00:22:34--> 00:22:56

It doesn't mean toggle doesn't mean to stop learn to stop learning. It's not about not planning. It's not about what not earning. You're not going to work who doesn't mean that like some of the aldermen said like your credit card, like you like a cloth or a sheet or a piece of paper on the ground. That's it. And then whatever Allah wills that's going to happen. That's not to welcome

00:22:59--> 00:23:33

people in that time some Muslims would go to that extreme. And the scholars of that time at your own books. I recently read a book there's a very good book small booklet, there was a humbling Imam, Imam Abu Bakr Al halal and humbly Rahim Allah and third century fourth century scholar. He wrote a book with all these coats and teachings of the great Imam Muhammad been humbled for the Allahu Allahu Allah be pleased with what love Akhmad saw in his time, that there were people who would not earn they would say we are relying on Allah

00:23:34--> 00:24:04

and he actually has coats so don't beg people earn a livelihood you might have been used to been humbled. You heard about macros and families to encourage people to choose self employment or employment. He said coolroom are you doing what a guru generates or sometimes as someone else sick there's a funeral prayer if you're self employed if you can do so become self employed so that you have your you have choice and freedom, your liberty to if you want to go and attend a funeral prayer, Yo, you are your own boss, basically.

00:24:05--> 00:24:19

And he said it's gonna mean a nasty Hill agraphia Lena Hill Alfia being independent of people are begging there's while being in it, someone says oh, you Mom, should I just not earn he said Are you

00:24:20--> 00:24:59

are you are you mad? He called up this person mentioned who he calls a person who actually believed in this to me a person will do that. So this tendency of going too extreme of what not taking the means is wrong. The Messenger of Allah Allahu Allah sent him perfect example for us. There's a how you can sort of intimidate the way he would. He said he would take the means you would put in the effort and you would make a dua he would say Allahu Maha the Jew to take eager to learn, Oh Allah, this is my effort that I've put in, but reliance is upon you, O Allah wa alayka to clear I don't rely on

00:25:00--> 00:25:16

This, I've put in the effort, you know, there was a companion so how do you know the Allahu Anhu okay to the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam and as he said O Messenger of Allah sometimes you know what I take my camel in the desert and what happens is that I want to offer my prayer. I have my camel horse or whatever new

00:25:18--> 00:25:28

Shall I tie the camera to the to the tree or something or should I just leave it? I'm offering saliva Allah Allah and I'm going to my camera and I'm going to run away the host and I'm going to run away Allahu Akbar.

00:25:30--> 00:25:39

Or should I do what could the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam said this is a sound sahih Hadith in Bukhari knows where he said it builds Gaza, whatever Corolla,

00:25:40--> 00:25:59

tie the camel first, and then rely on upon Allah, they rely upon Allah, who said these two things are opposite to one another. They don't contradict one another. You tie the Camel Up. But then you think to yourself, that you know what, even if I've tagged the camel, my camel can run away.

00:26:01--> 00:26:02

So what comes and asks us?

00:26:03--> 00:26:24

Shall I lock my car? I've got 500 pounds in the car. I don't know if either in my car, by the way, but if somebody has 500 pounds in their car, I've left my iPad might might somebody a brother came to me yesterday. It was a question issue that he wanted some guidance on. But anyway, the story was that the guy had

00:26:25--> 00:26:34

left his car. He had a worker who wasn't in this country since or in Africa. But the brothers from his there's a dispute going on, but anyway, had a look. And what happened was that

00:26:36--> 00:26:37

he left a worker

00:26:38--> 00:26:46

and he left his wallet with a few 100 pounds and he left his laptop there. And he said just one minute I'm popping into the shop and coming back he came back

00:26:48--> 00:27:30

got the laptops gone, the money's gone, and the work has gone as well never to be seen again. And it's like what do we do to what does it mean that I'm gonna leave my car open whatever if Allah wants to stay there for Allah doesn't want you know, anyone would stay there. No, you want. You lock your conference, you lock your door. You take the means, but I remember I realize and understand and reflect and ponder on the fact that locking my car or closing my house door or locking my house door in itself is insufficient. not sufficient in any way. It's all in the hands and the power and otter have Allah I could lock my car. But something could happen. Someone can break in.

00:27:32--> 00:27:49

Right? I mean, someone can break in or they don't they might not even need to break in the car. The lock can just become open again for llamas yeah sometimes happen this brother said. I am 100% Sure. I locked my car. I clipped it three times. But it's open hardly open.

00:27:50--> 00:27:56

Or open it so what is it can happen if Allah can create you and call you open the car door? Of course he can I

00:27:58--> 00:28:00

know sometimes we think how can this happen?

00:28:01--> 00:28:03

It's all in the hands on Power of Allah Allah subhanaw taala

00:28:04--> 00:28:05


00:28:06--> 00:28:52

this is what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Ty the camel. Telugu doesn't mean does not mean not taking the means not taking the causes. You know the Hadith I think you have this on the poster. The poster for this event. Had youth of Santa Fe relativity the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said now under Contact our Karuna Allah Allah habitat or Cooley, Lucia Tonka unicycle tire, TAO to him, our son what a roadshow Bhutan. If you were to have to work on and reliance on Allah, like the birds rely on Allah, then you would watch, you will be given risk. Like the birds are given provision and risk. They leave and depart in the morning empty

00:28:52--> 00:29:19

stomach. They return in the evening on a full stomach. Many people misunderstand this hadith. They think this is just about our Colima has been handled said Rahim Allah the animal, the people mistaken this hadith, this hadith is actually telling us to put in the effort because the birds leave in the morning they don't just sit in their nests, they leave they put in the effort they have what year Maji they go they go in you know search for food for the offspring

00:29:20--> 00:29:23

and they put in the effort and then Allah gives them risk.

00:29:24--> 00:29:33

So people mistaken this hadith that you know what to do because like birds, you know, like a bird that oh, yeah, don't come up with no results don't come up with pipe.

00:29:35--> 00:29:59

So there's a lot of emphasis on earning pursuing careers but we don't need this here because we all take the means I mean in that time you know this book, which among one of the moms wrote it's actually a book called Hack for ality jollity was not we're encouraging people to do business to try to earn but we don't need that encouragement in this day and age hamdulillah everybody without encouragement, everybody, you know customer had any follow the converted value, earning a lot

00:30:00--> 00:30:34

What is an obligation? What does Allah say in the Quran? So either audio to solid when sada joda time comes? First How will Vickery Allah He was I will leave your business transactions go to the remembrance of Allah and then for you to hold the other solid when Salah and then Tasha will go into the lens print out what that will mean for the reader, go and search the father of Allah What does that mean go and earn, go go and earn a livelihood. There's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari and elsewhere, absolutely authentic hadith, where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said and

00:30:36--> 00:30:38

made up Raju have bled

00:30:39--> 00:31:19

for Tata Eva. So Meyerbeer hoof is so key for your stuff here highroller human and yes, Ella nurse, to power autovu A mineral for a man to go into the woods into the woods, to go out and gather would take take like rope hablan and gather wood and go into the market and sell it and become independent, far better than going asking and begging people they might give him the might not give him Yes, he has to disgrace himself. Therefore begging living off others is actually condemned and looked down upon in this love. Right? So

00:31:20--> 00:31:33

this is very important we take the means we put in every effort in taking the means. The other extreme that we find ourselves in in this day and age brother and sisters is that we rely too much on the means.

00:31:34--> 00:31:50

We forget to realize that it's just the means we actually consider it to be effective in of itself. The medicine How many times do we think really we are convinced this medicine is going to you know to me Oh he'll you have an effect on me.

00:31:52--> 00:32:06

Real Tawakkol reliance upon Allah is that we ensure make sure we have this drilled in our hearts in our minds. That this is just a means

00:32:07--> 00:32:11

you have to we have to take this like we have to take a training course we have to

00:32:13--> 00:32:13

you know

00:32:16--> 00:32:17

practice this

00:32:19--> 00:32:41

returning to Allah rasool Allah turning to Allah, making dua supplication depending on Allah and for all our needs, looking at the creator of the means relying upon Allah, very important, we should not go to the extreme to the left, where we forget Allah subhanho wa Taala we forget that he is the creator of the means.

00:32:43--> 00:32:58

We as I said, the only reason why we take means is that Allah has commanded us otherwise you should think you know what this is just a means. It's only Allah has created the means. And only Allah was created the means and Allah has commanded me to take the means and this is the only reason.

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

So we must come back in the middle, have absolute trust reliance upon Allah strengthen our iman we need to strengthen our iman our being our belief in Allah subhanaw taala. We need to as I said, Turn to Allah make dua the main thing here is

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

very important.

00:33:25--> 00:33:59

Power of God, for everything and anything as I said in the beginning, we all have needs, every human at every step of his or her life has needs that require being fulfilled. What do we do? We take the means, but we rely on Allah we turn to Allah we supplicate we invoke Allah. We read the verse of the Quran the brother read mashallah very beautifully and there was translation there are quite a lot of brokenwood erroneous techyv.com in the linear stack, Rona and Jetty says hold on is your hand no matter what does Allah say in the Quran?

00:34:00--> 00:34:07

Your Lord says commands you says cholera beaucoup mudra Rooney caught on to me invoke me

00:34:08--> 00:34:09

I will respond.

00:34:11--> 00:34:14

The study of lacunae those who

00:34:15--> 00:34:19

get stuck guru in Washington, proud and arrogant.

00:34:21--> 00:34:27

From and that's preventing them from calling unto me allottees said Hola Hola, Johanna

00:34:28--> 00:34:32

they shouldn't be entering the Hellfire May Allah save us all and Delphine.

00:34:33--> 00:34:44

So we need to ask Allah rely on number four brothers, every ancestors of course, brothers and sisters, every single need of ours. Big or small.

00:34:47--> 00:34:59

Any need that we have whether it's a worldly need, next world need the need of this world. The need of the next world lacking the Hadith even ask Allah for, you know when your shoelace break

00:35:00--> 00:35:00


00:35:02--> 00:35:04

nothing small or big in the sight of Allah

00:35:05--> 00:35:33

and constantly keep on begging and asking Allah. You know, in this world if you keep on asking someone, even if that person is so generous after about five hours, you keep on asking enough 10 minutes, please help me Give me this. Can you do this for me? Can you do that? Can you do this for me? Would you help me give me a hand here? Right after five I was the most generous man in the world, a woman in the world will become what title? Have I done enough for you?

00:35:34--> 00:35:39

Allah actually is pleased that we keep on begging and asking.

00:35:40--> 00:35:50

Allah becomes upset. There's a hadith and Sunnah intermediate also the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said manlam Yes, le La Jolla although the IE

00:35:51--> 00:35:54

Allah becomes angry on the one who doesn't ask him

00:35:56--> 00:35:59

and this is why the poet said that

00:36:02--> 00:36:09

Allahu Allahu ye will double interrupters level or are you Adam? Yeah, the double.

00:36:11--> 00:36:23

Allah will double interrupters. Allahu Allah becomes angry if you don't ask him. Well, then who are the mules, adobo, Hina, use adult and the human being becomes angry when you when you ask.

00:36:25--> 00:36:48

The most generous person might have become our EBT might become upset, or you find it difficult or you there is something that you're giving. Allah is happy, there's nothing less ashamed on a Quran, Allah, Allah, human to do nothing more noble and beloved to Allah, then we invoking him and asking Allah subhanaw taala. So, this is what we need to do, rely rely on Allah take the means.

00:36:49--> 00:37:05

And the most important thing in our reliance on Allah is to supplicating and you know, if we do rely on progresses, if we do rely on Allah, you will see the effect of it in your life. And you know, I mentioned something here.

00:37:06--> 00:37:19

This is listener, Hadith, scholars safe deducing from the various incidents and Hadith, etc. That the way Allah works with us, is that if we rely

00:37:20--> 00:37:27

too much excessively, on means that Allah ties us and bonds us with meats.

00:37:29--> 00:37:41

And if we rely on Allah, and we chop, absolute, you're clean and Shuster, Allah. And Allah will make us slowly, gradually, not absolutely independent, but more or less independent of the meats.

00:37:42--> 00:37:57

It's all about how we rely on Allah has found God and there are incidents. There's a famous incident. This is a true story. It's a fact it's not fiction. It's not a matter of minutes in the various books. Mr. Mahajan mentioned this in earlier saga and elsewhere.

00:37:58--> 00:38:05

Sandra Hardy, who worried Radi Allahu Anhu have hardly been read, the great Sahabi the warrior

00:38:06--> 00:38:21

who conquered most of Sham, specifically a place called hymns in Arabic, known as humps, right now it was in the news and still in the news and viola, bring peace in those lands, and protect and safeguard the Muslims there.

00:38:24--> 00:38:27

He conquered hence his very there is love in hence, that's where he passed away.

00:38:29--> 00:39:17

A visit a few times homes in Syria currently is one of the second or third city the third city movie of Syria. Harlan, you're worried with his army, they went they were conquering hence, they surrounded the foot of the enemy. Right? The enemies were surrounded by the Muslim army. They had nowhere to go. For after a few days, they made the consultant one another and they decided that you know what, let's go and talk about some peace treaty. Let's have a truce with these Muslims. So one of their representatives that they appointed. They said go and speak to the Emir of the Muslims who was highly deliberately Allahu Anhu and talk to him about a truth. So the guy came out

00:39:18--> 00:39:33

and came to Hollywood normally there are the Allahu Allahu Allah be pleased within the crates hugging heart even when he when he came to discuss matters of signing a peace treaty with him. He saw that he in his hands had a bottle with some liquid. So he said,

00:39:35--> 00:39:38

Can I ask you what's in this bottle? What was this liquid?

00:39:40--> 00:39:47

Is this actually this liquid? Not this one, but the one that he had is actually poison.

00:39:50--> 00:39:59

Poison said yes. He said this is lethal poison. One of the most dangerous poisons ever on planet Earth.

00:40:00--> 00:40:05

So why did you bring poisoned with you said reason is that you know my people.

00:40:06--> 00:40:19

They're very oppressive, they're very cruel. And they said to me, you better go and sign a peace treaty. And if you can't, if you come back, we'll kill you. So I've come here that if I can sign a peace treaty with you, great. If not, I'm going to commit suicide.

00:40:21--> 00:40:39

Now Harlan, even though the Allahu Anhu he said to him, he said, Now look, look at the Sahaba they do not leave any opportunity to give Dawa. Right? He said, This is an opportunity to give Dawa. He said to him, I said, how much trust do you have on this poison? It says poison killer.

00:40:41--> 00:41:02

leader. He said, Are you sure he said, of course is a touchy surgeon. Take it easy. Don't you know don't Don't you know, make sure he doesn't touch your hand. He said you have too much trust you rely too much on it. I mean, you. You know your opinion on this is too strong. He said this poison is such that nobody ever in the world has lived to tell that to relate the tail of it.

00:41:03--> 00:41:06

Because as soon as they call it, God.

00:41:08--> 00:41:09

He said

00:41:10--> 00:41:15

I'll drink it. He said Oh, sure. I mean, the guy called Chuck say no, we'll take it no problem.

00:41:16--> 00:41:19

He said, It's all everything in the hands of Allah.

00:41:20--> 00:41:52

I make dua, and the DUA is such that which my messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has prescribed which is very effective, very powerful the power of Doha it's a famous to our most of you. If not all of you may have heard or know of it I'm sure it constant constantly recite this Bismillah He nodded I adore ro nice me che on an hourly whatever Sinha who submitted it, he recited that three times in the name of Allah. Lyle Dogru nothing harms

00:41:54--> 00:42:08

with his name Bismillah Ledi nylon ro ma SPE che on nothing in the skies. Nothing on earth can harm with the name of Allah. He's all hearing all knowledgeable. And he recited it and

00:42:09--> 00:42:10

come to

00:42:11--> 00:42:46

find the things wrong and nothing happened is not made of brothers and sisters. You might think how can you happen? A lot of things happen you know and remember it's all in the hands of Allah. Allah took away the effects of poison maybe like one brother said to me once that maybe he forgot to put the you know the poison in the water mix it okay, maybe that could have been the cause that he had water you have to mix it it's a dilute right, okay. And he forgot. But who made him forget Allah made you forget whatever the cause whether you forgot whether it was there, like Ibrahim Allen salatu, salam, the fire was there.

00:42:47--> 00:43:06

So it is a matter of whichever way Allah took away the effect of poison. But what did I want to do take away the effect of poison from him. Why? Because he had this reliance on Allah. The work couldn't rely on. And this is how Allah works brothers and sisters.

00:43:07--> 00:43:20

If we rely too much on the means that Allah ties us, ties us with the means. Our lives don't work with other means. If we rely on Allah, we have all sorts of needs in this world.

00:43:21--> 00:43:37

We take the means, you have a job interview, right? You will take all the means you will get ready you will prepare you have exams coming up, you will prepare for the exams in advance your study, of course you have to study I talked about that take the means.

00:43:38--> 00:43:51

But do we turn to Allah? Do we beg Allah do we rely on Allah dua is the first and foremost thing a believer must do before anything even before taking the means before return after it.

00:43:52--> 00:44:16

We have a job interview we'll take all the means we'll go and ask we'll take all the tips will go on different websites all the job interview tips dress this way look this way look in the eyes smile like this. Make sure you brush your teeth make sure you have you know make sure your wherever you're dressed well go early you've got a driving test make sure don't do take over means take them

00:44:17--> 00:44:23

but did we offer to knock out prayer before going to give you the test?

00:44:24--> 00:44:59

Salah to the hija is one of the most important things a believer can do. This is the ah there's a hadith and Sunnah nativity were the messengers of Allah when he was selling what did he say? He said among Cana la hija to Allah He to Allah. Whoever has a need towards Allah. Oh yeah, I heard remember he urged them or need to as another human which means you need a human being has to help you like your mechanical your job. When you've got a job interview or whatever test. The messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, This person should fell yet our boy he should perform ablution wudu

00:45:00--> 00:45:10

Whew, while you're singing we'll do perfect your ablution properly do you will do properly with all this applications while you're sitting we'll do a

00:45:11--> 00:45:19

thermal you Solera campaign and then offer to record prayer. This is called the prayer of need Salah tone Hijjah pray of need.

00:45:20--> 00:45:57

After that, he said some familiar theme use me and Allah, praise Allah subhana God you starting your DUA, then what will you suddenly I didn't know be yourself Allah Who are you send him started to our praising Allah, send blessings are the messengers of Allah when you send them. This is the better part of dua, you praise Allah He praise God and then you send blessings on the messenger SallAllahu Taala he was salah. And then you ask Allah for your needs and then the DUA is actually mentioned in the Hadith. This is a specific dua that Allah Allah Allah Allah halimun Karim Subhan Allah has not been actually him as a local Mooji Valterra ametek wasa immunotherapeutic salaam

00:45:58--> 00:46:00

should have translated as well.

00:46:01--> 00:46:49

Do you have time or not? Yeah, yeah he'll Allah he will cream there is no God but Allah who is forbearance, who is noble, generous Subhan Allah purified por la ropa La Silla lien The Lord of the great throne. And then you say as Aluko Mooji that you're agnostic, Oh Allah, I ask of you the things that necessitate your mercy. Was that you know, Mark Filtek I asked a few your firm forgiveness. When he met him in Coolibar. I ask from you a share of all righteousness was Sara muttering Kula eaten, and I asked her a few safety from any sinful activity. While Pozible Jenna and what? Salvation success with Jenna when Nigeria terminal safety from hellfire later the only the

00:46:49--> 00:47:00

money love authority All right, do not leave any sin except that you forgiven that sin. Well Uh hum Manila for register. No hardship except you've removed that calamity from me

00:47:02--> 00:47:12

with a hum Manila for Russia, while ah ha jetan minha dunya This is the main part here like a ribbon wall and if you have Salah in one rewire, but the one in southern Germany,

00:47:13--> 00:47:15

do not leave any Hajah

00:47:17--> 00:47:29

in LA Kadota were sort of the Hawala fulfill any need of mine. Do not leave it unfulfilled and make it easy for me as your your hammer Rahimi Allah for the Tahoe is something

00:47:32--> 00:47:46

so this is called Salah to Hajah within the means, when you've got an exam coming up or whatever, any any need or any situation that we find ourselves in, we should turn to Allah.

00:47:47--> 00:48:30

Think I'll take the means but I have to rely on Allah. That's why you know, the two hours you know the supplication sometimes we take them for granted we take the very lightly, you know the sooner to us. The ones that have you prescribed by the Messenger of Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah. Allah is so generous that He tells us to ask him, beg him and he says, I will respond like we read in the verse of the Quran where he does another verse where he there's a birdie I knew for any hurry, when you're when my servant asks where I am about me say I'm very close, I respond to GMO doubt a dairy that ran that just as you bully or you know me, I love me or Shalom. But Allah doesn't just stop there. Allah

00:48:30--> 00:49:14

teaches us how to ask through the means of the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam, of course, because he's taught us in the Hadith, all these you know, suddenness applications. You wake up in the morning hamdulillah the Emerton or in the Hindu show. You go into the toilet. Should I start testing everyone here you go. You enter the toilet, the washroom the bathroom? What's the DUA Allahumma inni I will recommend a homework will hover. And there's a hidden meaning there's meanings behind every single door. It's not just like you know, statement is the reason why we read these to you you exit or fraud or Hamdulillah. In other words, you entered the masjid Bismillah Salatu was Salam ala

00:49:14--> 00:49:15


00:49:16--> 00:49:31

you come out Aloha minion Sudocrem and fathering, you enter you return back home. You have a DUA, law Minister Crusader moulage you know the long drought after eating food and hungry learn that the nursery hamdulillah Henry Atlanta, there was just testing

00:49:32--> 00:49:59

that hungry lady Ramona was Takada, which I didn't have anyone asked me, etc, etc. Some of the alumni said that these applications are so powerful. There's nothing more powerful than these applications that brings you close to God. Every single moment of your life, your connection with Allah is being built. You're thinking all the time. This is Tamako This is reliance on Allah.

00:50:02--> 00:50:06

For every action imagine every action has to

00:50:08--> 00:50:25

this is the local relevance of regardless of the organization and you know, even when the mains are right there in front of you, or the question might come even what about if the means that guaranteed more or less in front of you? It's there, there's a plate of biryani.

00:50:26--> 00:50:29

storia but all you have

00:50:30--> 00:50:35

here with Corbin. Everybody's had stomach problems

00:50:36--> 00:50:46

because of overheating us reading the video on the internet somewhere in BYREDO quatre? I don't know how many people ended up in hospital because they're all over eating. And that is it with here. But anyway.

00:50:49--> 00:50:55

You have food right in front of you. Still we ask Allah O Allah.

00:50:56--> 00:51:40

Give me this food make me eat it, we will do our Bismillah Allahu Allah Baraka tila. Why? Because you could have stomach problems. If you eat it, or if something could happen, you might be prevented from eating it. Even if the means are more or less guaranteed. We still rely on Allah. That's the highest level of tokelauan reliance on Allah making dua supplicating turning to Allah all the time. And this is this is what you know, a Muslim, a believer is required to do that. Ask Allah for every need provinces and make it make this a habit take the means in the world, but rely on there's two more things that I would have just mentioned and I'm going to end Inshallah,

00:51:42--> 00:52:03

to our power of taking, you know, the most noon the sunnah to us applications that are in the Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam make a habit along with do add is two more things that I really want to explain this just briefly take a for 10 minutes. There's something called a Roca. And there's something called amulets, okay. A

00:52:04--> 00:52:05

lot of people ask about this,

00:52:07--> 00:52:13

too, is very important. We have something called raka Raka. Baraka is,

00:52:14--> 00:52:56

from the Hadith, where certain things are recited, read blown on your body or on the water, etc. Because this a lot of misunderstanding within Muslims about these things there are we all know and we have to turn to Allah is Lokoja reciting certain dua it's actually a form of Dr. Rocha is does it go against reliance on Allah? No, because you are actually relying on Allah through repair anyway. However, there's a hadith. There's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari sahih, Muslim absolutely sound authentic side Hadith, where the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he talked about the order that alayan OMA, I was shown the various different owners, the nations, I saw the followers of Moses

00:52:56--> 00:53:00

Musa, peace be upon him, I saw the followers of Isa and then I saw my own mother.

00:53:01--> 00:53:48

Numerous and it was set to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sahbihi wa salam, this is your own million dollar agenda Tamina Allah in Cebu owner Alif from your OMA 77 Zero 1000 People will enter paradise brewery is without any recognition May Allah make us of those make it to our all the time and after a while the Sahaba no discussing holy 70,000 People said you should should be asked because we you know, we have EMA on the Messenger of Allah so Allah is gonna be our children, the messenger so the Harrison came back and he said, you know, who are these people who will let ina lightest our own? What are your own? What I wound up picking with our crew for things? What three

00:53:48--> 00:54:05

things and the result consequence of the three is number four. These are people I just mentioned the other to just briefly. These are those who don't get up on your own. They don't take battlements. They don't take like this is bad work. They don't see a black hat and say you know what, tell you back home don't travel because you sort of blanket.

00:54:06--> 00:54:28

The superstitions. It's wrong in Islam taking superstitions. Islam is not a religion of superstitions, brothers and sisters is actually a sign of weakness of human when we all rely on superstitions. Oh, this happened this is going to happen this adds a whole lot big door to Allah, Allah and Allah pray to Allah. Okay, so there is no place for superstitions. This is called you know,

00:54:30--> 00:54:49

get up on your own while I play your role, or in the case of Germany, they used to take birds and make them fly. If the bird went towards the right, they would do action if you went to the left to sign they wouldn't do it. And that's why the Messenger of Allah forbade them from doing that. And then the second thing he mentioned, was Wila Yocto.

00:54:50--> 00:54:59

They don't medicate themselves, by branding the bodies this was in that time they would, you know, take metal heated on fire.

00:55:00--> 00:55:15

And then they would, you know brand their bodies it was a form of medication, which the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam disliked anyway, and he said what I started doing, and they don't get involved in Europa, or some people misunderstand this.

00:55:16--> 00:55:50

The messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam seems that his, his word, condemning the Serapion issue, right? That's what it seems. And the Hadith goes on, you know, as I mentioned earlier, but the Hadith goes on to the messenger SallAllahu. Recently, he said this as hobby companion by the name of Akasha. He said you're a fool Allah and Amin, whom will fear the rioting, oh Ottawa, regedit, even home, make dua to Allah that I become one of those 70,000 He sends me home you are from them. Another one stood up, he said, Make dua for me as well. He said Sabha aka Bihar Kashia

00:55:52--> 00:56:18

you are overtaken by aka Okasha was the middle so happy it's okay if I start making dua for you. I'm gonna have a line of people everyone Me Me, me me. So that's it first person I made dua for him. This is the sun Hadith in Sahih al Bukhari Sahih Muslim elsewhere. Now they don't do rock the rock is like reciting certain things but what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was pointing towards in this hadith is what they used to do in the days of Jehovah ignorance where they used to read all these like,

00:56:19--> 00:57:00

phrases, nothing to do with Islam, you had Sherkin it they were calling one shape on they would call on to gins and they would have magic in it, or these dodgy kinds of things, which some people still do in this day and age is dodgy soothsayers and these dodgy real fraudsters, there's many of them really seriously, brothers and sisters. Be very, very cautious and very careful. 95 to 98% of the people are fraudsters and fraudsters in this what? In this field? There's just a massive major money making industry and business I mean, I have so many people calling me about black magic, this magic that magic we weren't here when Stalin when Kashmiri when was done when we're in middle poor, rural

00:57:00--> 00:57:43

India, where Bangladesh we were this and this person gave us this and do this and do that 95 to 98 out of 99% of them. Absolute crooks fraudsters making money seriously, because they are currently on the vulnerability of weak people. Because when we are weak, when we are going through hardships, we want to give anything back please solve this problem. So these people, they take advantage. And there's many of them. There's some in my city as well, seriously. You know, there was a BBC report, there's a report on BBC goes on the internet. I read it last year, or whatever I did. There was like undercover reporters, a man and a woman. You know, they came to Leicester of all cities,

00:57:44--> 00:58:22

acuity Leicester. They pretended they were a married couple. And they said we've got marriage problems. And they came to this person. And the guy said, Yeah, I know, someone's done some black magic, and they're just reporters. And their whole their whole report. It's on BBC might still be that. search it on Google Sharif. Okay. But seriously, they will they will just report us. They pretended they were married. And this guy said Yeah, I know. Someone was jealous that you are married since day one. And they've been doing black magic on you that how seriously these people need to be. I'm not gonna say what but they just making like people's lives misery.

00:58:24--> 00:58:44

I'm not saying there's no black magic. It does exist. It's a local run. But 90% of the time, you can get sorted out by medical treatment. It's not black magic, because you know, people have this disease, where you start thinking everything in your life is black magic. This is one woman who used to inform me on you know, she was so obsessed. She drops

00:58:45--> 00:58:47

a spoon in the kitchen black magic.

00:58:49--> 00:59:04

A plate falls on the kitchen cracks open black magic, someone's sitting in Newport rhubarb magic for your plate to crush Come on, you know, have some sense. Everyone becomes ill illness is part of this life. Sickness is part of this life.

00:59:05--> 00:59:13

Okay, black magic can happen but it's not all the time. Many of our issues can be treated through psychiatric treatment

00:59:14--> 00:59:16

through our through asking Allah

00:59:18--> 00:59:57

so it's not always black magic may be rare instances it can be and then that can also be made the do as read his recite Ismaila reliable Roma chrismation Florida will have his summer you know the messenger Allah when the two suitors the last two suitors of the Quran, the more our the time will will develop will further and allow the better bynars Why where there is well, one of the most effective benefits of those two and they were revealed for this reason is that they would have black magic. You don't need a pumpkin to be cut into 99 pieces and put you know salt in it and put it on your head here and one here and do all that kind of stuff. Really, these two done there's nothing

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

more effective. Everything's in the hands of Allah, the power

01:00:00--> 01:00:15

is in the hands of Allah. Allah is the one who creates black magic and he's the one who takes away nobody's got no power, but we start believing in the means. We forget Allah. And that's why we get so engrossed in these issues. So this hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where he was talking about

01:00:17--> 01:01:00

that's what they wrote. He was talking about that, in that time, people used to do all these dodgy kinds of things. Why was to do that? You know, he wasn't talking about other Opia because he himself, it's proven is Hadith in Bukhari Muslim numerous where he himself would do, he would recite, as I said, you know, like, there's a hadith in Sahih al Bukhari, where the wife of the messenger salAllahu alayhi salam, Aisha Radi Allahu anhu, she says, the messengers of Allah Who are you Sam Kennedy, the AHA mother Jarrah, who when he would go to sleep at night retired to bed nevertheless he a day he would blow in his hands while he would first read Cara Anwar with it in one

01:01:00--> 01:01:18

head 111 version it's called our global follow up and call out there have been nests in another version is also called here your Cathy rude maybe you could do the fourth one as well although a lot well I had tomorrow with that to recite these would blow on his hands and will Mercer her big merger so don't you would

01:01:19--> 01:01:27

all of his body is not made up. This is an older brother. He was this sahih al Bukhari okay, there's nothing wrong with it.

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

And then she says Bella Mushtaq, aka moody, and if I knew that it could be when he became ill, he could not lift his hands. He would command me to do it. And the Hadith explains that she said, I would read, I would blow on his hands, and then take his own hands and because there's more baraka and blessings in the aggressive hands of the messenger, sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and there's a hadith in Bukhari as well to the rasa Nabi sallallahu alayhi salam or Rukia termin Kula humility. In messengers from Allah what is permitted Rapi are reciting

01:02:01--> 01:02:24

verses of the Quran and Hadith and taking the names of Allah and to us from illnesses like fever, and the famous Hadith remember sider Kadri, Radi Allahu Anhu they there was a group of Sahaba they went to a place and you know, they asked, they were guests, and they were asked for some food because they were traveling this look entertainers and the guys Bounders and we're not going to entertain you, you know?

01:02:26--> 01:02:47

You're gonna be hungry and thirsty. And what happened? Allah made this happen, okay, not by coincidence, okay, Allah made this happen. The leader of the tribe became ill, and they were always you know, who knows? Autopia who can read rokeya Because remember the non believers at that time, they would have all these non Islamic rocla they will read all these sponges in June, June, June, you know, all these, like, what?

01:02:49--> 01:03:12

Different sentences and words and things like that, right? That's what the air was. And that's what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was condemning in the Hadith. Ginseng, so these, this, they spoke, they discuss this and they said, Look, you know, these people who have come outside the Sahaba go and ask them these foreign people. Does anybody know? raffia they didn't know. I was sorry that Henry said. They came and asked, I just said, Yeah, you know what, I know.

01:03:14--> 01:03:21

This you do said you're our leader. He has been bitten his by Scorpion over very, very scared.

01:03:23--> 01:03:32

So can you can you come and do some repair? So you said Yeah, I know Rocky. I have mastered the art of rock. He went there. He recited Surah Fatiha and he blew on him when he was healed.

01:03:34--> 01:03:54

When he came back, they came back to the messenger sallallahu alayhi salam and asked about him. They actually then they said yes, get on condition is that you entertain us give us food. That was the that was the return and they actually gave them food. But they didn't eat this and let's go back and ask the messenger of allah sallallahu ALA is and this isn't sustainable. Hadees well, they asked the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said

01:03:55--> 01:04:39

about the permissibility of eating he said, Of course eat and he said he smiled for the HCA. This is one of the few rare times where the messenger Salallahu Alaihe Salam actually laughed. The Bassam is smiling kind of julu a troublesome mostly, he would just smile wouldn't laugh loudly like we do haha, okay, but there's no lol in the dictionary of the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he would smile. But this is one of the few rare occasions for the hidden abuse of Allah Islam and he said warmer the rock and Haruka How do you know this was Raka? Isn't I just thought thought so refer to her is Shiva cube. So this look yeah, not a problem. Okay, it's perfectly fine

01:04:39--> 01:04:50

and most Muslims don't have a problem with it as to as someone's ill sake you read the DUA, you blow. Yeah, nothing wrong blowing. It's proven from the messenger SallAllahu when you said that.

01:04:51--> 01:04:59

The last thing that we have here, we had to have has raka Raka is reading reciting, blowing, not a problem sometimes

01:05:00--> 01:05:00


01:05:02--> 01:05:27

when people drink it, not a problem, okay? But with balance problems just taking the means and then doing do out and rakia. That's the balance. The blowing of the water by itself is not going to sort out all our problems. We have to put in the effort. Like I said in one talk, peep couple have had a merit marital problem.

01:05:28--> 01:06:06

If you have a marriage problem, you need to sort out the problem. Just go to a chef and say read some you can read yourself you don't need to go to Chef. The effect is in the words of the Quran. But yes, someone more pious may be more effective because Allah loves them more no problem but you can also read yourself not a problem. Okay? No problem. It's not some like supernatural human being that he's going to put some special stuff in and that's it, it's going to work and you will you're blowing, will not work. No, it's in effect is in the words of Allah subhanho to Allah in the Quran. But yes, the more pious the more righteous the more close to Allah the more likelihood that his dua

01:06:06--> 01:06:33

we can ask people to make dua for us that was done Hi revive Allah loves his beloved, the more righteous, so not a problem. But we have to put in the effort brothers and sisters. You can't say okay, you know what? Yeah, we have problems, marriage problems. Just go to share please blowing some water. We'll drink in all the marriage problems solved overnight. That's gotta dream. Everything's gonna be sorted out you know, it doesn't work like that. It doesn't work like that. We have to work hard. We have to take the means and then turn to Allah.

01:06:35--> 01:06:41

Besides lupia The last thing that we have here is what called amulets. Have you ever heard of amulets?

01:06:43--> 01:06:43

To have

01:06:47--> 01:06:48

that with

01:06:50--> 01:06:54

now, Muslims have extreme views about this again.

01:06:55--> 01:07:00

Some people the moment you hear the word amulet, or we call for shock, that's it.

01:07:01--> 01:07:04

And for some people, there's nothing in the world except amulets.

01:07:06--> 01:07:16

Islam is all about amulets, for every issue, if you want children, special type of triangle amulets, if you want

01:07:17--> 01:07:23

employment, a circle if you want health rectangle,

01:07:24--> 01:07:30

every problem amulet, what is amulet? Let me give you the Balanced View on this, and I will end

01:07:32--> 01:07:37

amulets, that's how you know there's amulets. Okay. What are amulets?

01:07:39--> 01:08:07

amulets, Dawie, they're not proven from the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sahbihi wa salam, but they are proven from his companions Sahaba that are the Allah and on the line Amara does, it's proven from them. Basically, what is the reality of an amulet? It's basically the DUA that you read it's written on a piece of paper nothing else I think that's and really

01:08:09--> 01:08:36

the main main thing is do our brothers and sisters main these other levels Salah to the Hajj and to Arabic I talked about That's level one. The next level is a role player. And last and final level, the least effective is amulet and what I mean it really are at the life of the Roma you know the famous or happy or the Allahu Anhu the son of a little girl hooked up or the Allahu Anhu

01:08:38--> 01:08:40

he would teach his children

01:08:42--> 01:09:35

it's this is in the Hadith the rewire his children a dua he said, Oh my children, all of you memorize this to our odo bakery Murthy Larry Tamati min Shari Maha hawla wala here on Hatfield on Oahu, or hamara. I mean, I seek Allah's protection and refuge, through the compete Words of Allah statements of Allah, from the evil of that he's created. And Allah is the best. Allah is the best of protectors. And he's the Most Merciful of the Merciful. He said, You teach his those children who are at the age of speaking. So if they were 1011 910 11, he would say memorize this, but a two year old baby because he could not memorize, he would write it on a piece of paper and tight with him on

01:09:35--> 01:09:37

his hand or on his neck or whatever.

01:09:38--> 01:09:44

Which shows us tells us informs us something. What does it tell us? Is everybody understanding what does it tell us?

01:09:46--> 01:09:59

And we let our way really someone can read, basically, rather than reading is put it here. It's really 24/7 If you can't read it, even if you can read it, it doesn't mean it's wrong, because you might forget so this is 24 hours with you. No problem.

01:10:00--> 01:10:43

There's just the DUA rather than being what recited, it's actually written and placed on you. Not a problem. Okay, so it's permissible but it must be like authentic it must be from the Quran and Hadith sunnah. You shouldn't have any funny dodgy things in it of course and the main main condition for the permissibility of amulets is that you we do not start considering and thinking that this amulet in itself is effective and in this day and age actually Brothers Sisters many people that actually have started thinking you know the amulet like It's like some sort of you know, like precious stone and you've got this like okay all the time as soon as the baby is born make sure it

01:10:43--> 01:11:10

bring the amulet straightaway it's come on you know the baby's straightaways attached I'm gonna read some door on blowing make dua to Allah compress with Turkish Mahajan. What makes you say this amulets more effective than not Dora is more effective. People you know so many times people, you know, they they found me they asked me they say look, you know, is there, what's the DA will leave or you know, people in this day and age like this is a most of most oft asked question.

01:11:11--> 01:11:21

Is there anything to read? Is there anything to read? Is there anything to read? You know, I've got exempt Is there anything to read? Is there any will be virtually is anything to read? So many times we will ask this you know what I say to them,

01:11:22--> 01:11:25

the only thing to do is Officer tahajjud

01:11:26--> 01:12:07

Korede, to lock us out or how to pray to Allah cry to Allah beg, beg him crying to him, do out of your, you know, your humility and need towards Allah? Does Allah need you to read something 492 and a half times, and if you don't read it, then he's not gonna work for you. Allah will say, Oh, I was counting for 92 and a half. You did for 91. So I'm gonna look if something has been mentioned by the messenger Salallahu Alaihe salam to be recited this many times 33 times Subhan Allah 33 times and Hamdulillah 34 times Allahu Akbar after Salah there is no doubt we must do it. Whether we understand without other things, okay, some people have experienced fine, you can do it no problem, but don't

01:12:07--> 01:12:31

become over reliant. put in the effort, and then don't become reliant. You know, people say, okay, you know, I'm not getting married is anything to read, okay. There are things you can read nothing wrong. That's another extreme where people go, you know, they say, Oh, these all these reading is ocean. That's another extreme, but make your most powerful tool. What? Do

01:12:32--> 01:12:33

Salatin Hajah

01:12:35--> 01:12:46

and remember finally, amulets, a shave knowing how to make amulets has got nothing to do with righteousness and piety or knowledge. Or am I teachers

01:12:49--> 01:12:50

he wants mentioned

01:12:51--> 01:12:52


01:12:53--> 01:13:04

once somebody came to him and said, Can you make an amulet salary for me? He said, he's a world renowned, prominent scholar, over 150 200 books.

01:13:05--> 01:13:22

This brother came to us and he said, he doesn't make any edits. He said, I don't know how to make amulets. So we've been doing all your life wasting your time. 40 years of what? reading, studying teaching massive Islamic institution you have even learned how to make an argument for some Muslims.

01:13:24--> 01:13:51

Islam is about amulets, it's got nothing to do anyone can is anyone can make it. The students are studying in our mother, a son or daughter or a loom, Islamic institutions, whatever, India, Pakistan, Arab world, wherever. Nowhere do you have a lesson how to make amulets, nowhere and nowhere do you have a lesson how to interpret dreams as well. Nowhere seriously, people ask me sometimes, can you turn dreams? So look, I don't know how to reduce the we've been wasting your time. You don't know how to interpret DNS.

01:13:52--> 01:13:58

You know, we've been doing for the past 20 3040 years of your life. Well, not 40. But anyway, how many years of your life

01:14:00--> 01:14:32

so we have to understand this in sha Allah. So we make sure the condition is that we don't consider the amulet to be effective. It's not like a precious stone that's going to affect us. effect is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala. And I will end with this again, I've been saying this quite a few times, I will end with this. The conclusion is do not rely on Allah take the means the conclusion is we must take the means put in the effort, whether it's a medical problem, financial problem.

01:14:34--> 01:14:34


01:14:36--> 01:14:37

sorry, problem,

01:14:39--> 01:14:59

family problem, interactive problem of interaction with people social problem, whatever problem. Take the means putting the effort, solve your marriage problem, solve your middle medical issues, work hard, take the means put in the effort. And then we do three things. We take the means first, first. The first

01:15:00--> 01:15:47

point of action. First Action Point is making the art or law in any language, whether it's Punjabi, or whether it's English, whether it's Turkish, whether it's Arabic, whether it's karate, whether it's whatever, Somalian language or Sudanese or whatever language, Allah understands, pray to Allah cry beg the power of dua, Allah will accept number two you can do that with me that's that's on the side but DUA and we do our Allah will accept but then there's another whole discussion on the conditions of acceptability of dua, as mentioned one euteller A messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in one Hadith a man makes dua there are numerous this is in the Muslim different by

01:15:47--> 01:16:37

Muhammad numerous reasons for this guy's door RS application to be accepted. numerous reasons his traveling is discharged is this is that but who Hara when Ramesh Raghu. Hara woman Besu haram. For you stager Buddha they were who they have been haram for anesthesia with. His food is haram. His drink is haram. His clothing is haram, his narration haram How can this do out except so this conditions and then we should also understand the DUA. Allah like, you know, upper secondary says, And I'll end with this code is one of the great scholars of Islam. He says, Believe in Allah have you been firm conviction that Allah will accept you to Allah, then make the DUA and remember and

01:16:37--> 01:16:51

realize and know for a fact that Allah will exception to our but fee worked in Yatta, who love you walked in and entered after? At a time when he chooses of his choosing, not a time of your choosing?

01:16:53--> 01:17:02

That's what the Hadith says Allah will accept do not understand. Don't be hasty, and in a way and manner that Allah chooses not in a way and manner that you choose.

01:17:03--> 01:17:16

We want the DUA to be accepted this way, but Allah has chosen to do it except in a different way. It says wisdom. This is a comedy show. I'm gonna do this stuff with some celebrity, Muhammad Salim Osama.
