Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah here. brachetto smilla rahmanir rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen wa salli wa sallim wa ala a shut off it and he will mursaleen now begin our Habibi now karate our unit Mohammed Abdullah la vida Allah He was happy he of de la sala de Botton with asleep and my bed.

00:00:23--> 00:01:02

We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala make sustainer and Alicia creator, the Lord of all words, we ask him for help. We ask him for healing. We ask him for ease. We ask him for prosperity we ask him for safety we ask him for security. And on this blessed Friday, we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam his family members, his companions, and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of karma.

00:01:04--> 00:01:06

My dear brothers and sisters in Islam

00:01:08--> 00:01:33

we have a hadith where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was once delivering a sermon, it was a Friday, a Friday like the Friday that you and I are in. But Subhan Allah, a fortunate Friday for the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and this hadith is recorded in the book of Imam Al Bukhari Rahim Allah, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is delivering the Friday sermon.

00:01:35--> 00:01:43

So NSW Malik are the Allahu anhu. He reports that whilst the prophets of Allah Wiley, where he was selling was delivering a sermon. in Medina,

00:01:44--> 00:01:59

a man comes to the gathering, a man comes to the gathering, and he says jasola law. Now the Prophet is delivering the sermon, the Friday sermon and a man comes to the gathering and says yeah Rasul Allah, Yasuda Allah

00:02:00--> 00:02:27

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was going on with his sermon, and this man at the edge of the gathering was trying to get the attention of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. jasola la rasulillah he cries out until finally the prophets that alone while he really was seldom looks at the man because this is in the middle of the sermon you have to understand. Unlike other times, this is in the middle of the sermon the Prophet is giving the sermon and the man is calling audiosuite Eliana Salalah.

00:02:29--> 00:02:53

So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam looks at the man and he asks him I'm paraphrasing the narration goes along the lines of these words the incident goes along the lines of these words he asks the prophets Allah Islam Yasuda Allah as in he looks at the prophet and says you know sort of love The Prophet now looks at him and asks him, what is it what do you want? Now the man says, Yeah, Rasul Allah, there is no rain, there is no rain, we are in a lot of difficulty there is no rain.

00:02:54--> 00:03:00

So please call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us with rain.

00:03:01--> 00:03:05

Call upon Allah subhanho wa Taala to bless us with rain.

00:03:07--> 00:03:19

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he raises his hands and he makes the law homeless cleaner. Or Allah make it shower. Let it Chava.

00:03:20--> 00:03:26

So Allah Subhana, as in he makes dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, we ask you for him.

00:03:27--> 00:04:14

We ask you for aim, we seek rain, and many brothers and sisters, and so been a malakut of your loved one who is the narrator of the Hadith. He says that we looked up at the heavens, and you have to understand the mustard of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a very simple mustard. And there were certain places in the method that had a roof over on top and there were other places where it was open, where you could look up to the heavens, and even the parts or the places where you had a roof it was basically out of out of leaves and and the fiber of palm You see, so there were gaps. So the companions they looked up towards the heavens as the Prophet was making the

00:04:14--> 00:04:45

Allahumma screener, Allahu mastana. Look up at the heavens that it was a clear day. Just imagine Friday. You know, right now, even in my country, if you were to look up at the heavens, it's a clear blue sky, despite there being you know, rain yesterday and they before yesterday. For those in my country, they would agree and we pray that Allah makes the rain of beneficial rain and wherever it is not raining. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala blesses the people of those areas with beneficial rain, I mean,

00:04:46--> 00:04:54

so now they look up at the heavens and the sky was blue, not a cloud in sight, not a cloud insight, not a cloud inside.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

Then suddenly, the clouds

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

Started together. It started together, started to become dark.

00:05:06--> 00:05:09

And it started to rain, it started to rain.

00:05:10--> 00:05:36

The Doha of the prophets that along Wiley radio, Selim was immediately unset. The Companions, they look up at the heavens, the sky is clear, not a cloud in sight. And the Prophet is making the law upon the pulpit whilst delivering the sermon and Allahumma spinner olabisi crane, we see crane, and then the clouds start together and it begins it begins to rain, by the will and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:05:39--> 00:05:47

Another revelation to share with you all before I get into the topic, and the content for today's sermon,

00:05:48--> 00:05:50

Abu huraira, the Allah one,

00:05:51--> 00:06:07

a famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he or the last one he embraces Islam at a young age, and he was an orphan, he he lost his father. So he and his mother, now they go to Medina, his mother had not embraced Islam.

00:06:08--> 00:06:18

So for Abu huraira, the loved one who in terms of family in terms of direct family, it was only his mother. And for his mother, it was her son, Abu huraira karate.

00:06:19--> 00:06:47

So and you all know, Abu huraira Viola one, he was very close to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a real valuable, real seek of knowledge, a student of knowledge, he would spend so much of time with the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa alayhi wasallam learning from him studying by the messenger sallallahu. So whenever he would go home, he would sit down with his mother and and narrate to her, he would tell her all what the messenger sallallahu alayhi wasallam would say.

00:06:48--> 00:07:35

Now as per this particular Hadith, this particular narration, and it's recorded in the book of Imam Muslim Rahim, Allah One day, he Abu huraira, the loved one. He was very excited, if you will, and he was with a lot of zeal, you know, informing his mother about what the prophet sallallaahu Selim had said, and he was firmly inviting her to embrace Islam. Now, perhaps the mother at that time was, you know, maybe she was busy with something or whatever it is, she, you know, became annoyed. She became annoyed and she went on to say things that were not appropriate, if you will, towards the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Now whatever Bobby Allah one he was said, he was said, because

00:07:35--> 00:08:05

she had said certain things that he disliked about the messenger. He was so sad, he started to be pen he started to cry. And he runs to the Prophet of Allah, He runs to the Messenger of Allah and he says, jasola la jasola. Please pray for my mother. Please pray for my mother, so that she comes to Islam so that she embraces Islam. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at that juncture, media brothers and sisters, as per the Hadith, he raises his hands Allahumma de oma abhi hora

00:08:06--> 00:08:33

Allahumma de oma B hora, or LA guide, the mother of Abu huraira. All guide, the mother of Abu huraira Abu huraira de la Han, his heart was light. He was overjoyed. He was happy that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam had made dua for his mother. He now goes home, he goes home, he returns back home,

00:08:34--> 00:08:39

only to find my dear brothers

00:08:40--> 00:09:11

and sisters in Islam and he arrived home. I'm paraphrasing the incident goes along the lines of these words he knocks the door and he can hear this sound of water and the mother is purifying herself. And then she comes out she opens the door. And after opening the door she had you know, after she had showered she opens the door and she says yeah about hurayrah or Abu huraira a shadow Allah, Allah illallah wa a shadow and Mohammed and Abu Do what?

00:09:12--> 00:09:54

I bear witness that there is no deity worthy of worship other than Allah. And that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and please Ramos Allah wa when am I mentioned his beautiful name My dear brothers and sisters. Mohammed is his slave and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu huraira the Allah one whose joy you know it cannot be described was so happy and he rushes now to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he was shedding tears of joy, shedding tears of joy and happiness and he goes to the Messenger of Allah says Yasuda Allah, Allah has responded to your supplication. Allah has answered your dua, and he has set on the right path, the mother of Abu

00:09:54--> 00:09:54

huraira

00:09:56--> 00:10:00

and then now he requests jasola supplies

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

Get unto Allah subhanho wa Taala so that he may instill a love of mine and that of my mother to in the hearts of the believing servants, and let our hearts be filled with their love. Again the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam makes to Allah let there be love of the servants of yours, a bow Herrera and his mother in the hearts of the believing servants and let their hearts be filled with the love of the believing servants, in other words, that the believers love Abu huraira let the believers love the mother of Abu huraira and let Abu hurayrah and his mother loved the believers and until today, my dear brothers and sisters, do we not love Abu huraira de la Han? And do we not? And

00:10:43--> 00:11:28

you know, for a fact, almost every talk almost every reminder, almost every lecture, almost every sermon, almost every sermon, we come across the name of Abu huraira the other one, because he has made mention of so many a Hadith of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam, and Abu huraira the Allahu anhu. He states in regards to this, that this Tao was so well granted by Allah, that no believer was ever born who heard of me, but did not love me, every believer who heard of me Loves Me, basically, that's what he's trying to say. Every believer who has heard of me or who or who he is of me, loves me because of the law of the

00:11:28--> 00:11:28

prophets Allah.

00:11:30--> 00:12:16

Now, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, what I hope to touch on for today's sermon, it's a very important topic, given what's happening around the world. And and you know, not just not just in today's landscape, this is something that is applicable for all times. This the importance of the law, and how much we need to turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala supplicating unto him, and what are the ways what's what are the etiquettes when it comes to the law? A few tips if you will, in terms of getting your desires answered by Eliezer. Do you want your daughters to be answered by Allah subhanho Medina, then Oh, brother, or sister, listen attentively to these steps. Listen attentively

00:12:16--> 00:12:35

to these guidelines, if you want your daughters to be answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala if you want to know the value of da and how important though, is in the life of a believer, the listen very attentively to these teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:12:36--> 00:12:44

So, before I get into the pointers, before I get into the guidelines and tips, there is a small tangent that I want to address.

00:12:45--> 00:13:20

Now we mentioned two incidents that took place during the time of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. So now one might wonder, oh, you know, this perhaps is only for the prophets of Allah because when we go through the lives of the prophets of Allah we see, for example, in the story of a Eubalaena that was Sam he makes dry and his do is answered by Allah subhana wa tada in the story of surah. In the story of the Prophet Yunus, Allah that was when we see him making the law and his device eventually answered with Allah subhanho wa Taala. And in the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam as you can see, there are many, many, many incidents to prove the Tao of

00:13:20--> 00:13:33

the prophets of Allah being answered by Elias origin. So one might wonder, perhaps, this is something exclusively for the prophets of Allah. Let me prove otherwise, by giving you a few more incidents.

00:13:36--> 00:13:40

There was a ruler long, long, long ago.

00:13:42--> 00:13:48

He was a diabolical ruler. He was a tyrant. He was an oppressor.

00:13:51--> 00:14:15

And he had a wife, and I think you all know who I'm talking about. And a great prophet of Allah was sent to his palace was sent to call him to Allah. But he chose the path of arrogance, the part of the devil, he chose to deny he chose to reject, he chose to turn away from Allah subhana wa Tada, who am I talking about? I'm talking about Farah.

00:14:17--> 00:14:21

So the wife of Pharaoh hound, the wife of Pharaoh.

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

She when the message of Allah came to her palace, through the prophet Musa Allah said, she embraced it. She embraced it. She was the wife of this diabolical ruler, this tyrant and he was keeping her well, he gave her every comfort, if you will. She was the Queen living in the palace. Until he found out that she had embraced the message of Moses. That was the minute he found out about this. He started to inflict torture upon her and he taught him

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

I heard her tortured her tortured her so much, so much, that at one point she is being tortured My dear brothers and sisters, she's being tortured for what? For turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala she is being tortured to the extent Allah mentions in Surah two hareem which is the 66th chapter number 11. Well, Bob Allahumma salli ala Vina Amano, Marotta Farah own is called as Rob be Bernini. kabang eaten Fijian Finjan when a genie fear Oh no, I'm early he wanna Genie minako Milan me in

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

a lot of Allahumma Stella Lila Dena Ama nombrado Farah Han and Allah sets forth an example for the believers who is the example the wife of Farah own who prays who makes Dora What does she say? This Dora has been captured in the Quran and we read it on a regular basis such a powerful to her this da Allah captures it in the Quran

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

is call it is the call it's wrong. Bibi Neely is that can be eaten. Finjan. Oh my Lord.

00:16:30--> 00:17:02

Build a house for me. near you in paradise. Look at the beauty of the Doha. She chooses her neighbor before the House. jar. copula dar jar, habla dar in the Arabic language our means neighbor. Okay, and that means house so she chooses her neighbor she wants to be next to Allah close to you. Yeah, Allah. A palace a house for me.

00:17:04--> 00:17:16

When a genie around and save me from round one family he and his evil deeds when a genie in a coma lolly mean and save me from the wrongdoing people.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

Media brothers and sisters in Islam.

00:17:22--> 00:17:25

Mr. McAfee. I'ma holla he mentions in his tafsir

00:17:27--> 00:17:29

that the minute she made this door,

00:17:30--> 00:17:33

the door has been captured in the Koran and we're going to read it

00:17:34--> 00:17:35

until the end of time we're reading it.

00:17:38--> 00:18:30

No soon as she made the door Ah, the heavens split asunder. And her place her house in the heavens was shown to her. Now she is being tortured. She is being tortured. And she's suffering and at this juncture, her house in the heavens and while was answered in her house in the heavens were shown to her. And now her heart lightens. Her face lightens. And she starts to smile. And the people inflicting the torture upon her. They were confused. She were inflicting torture. And instead of being in pain and claim, why is she smiling, they go to their own and they say your wife has lost it. Your wife has lost it, we are torturing her inflicting torture upon torture, we have intensified

00:18:30--> 00:18:47

the torture upon her and here she is smiling and laughing. Around couldn't believe it is he wanted to see this for himself. So he comes to see it. And by the time he comes to his wife, she had breathed her last. And Allah had taken her soul.

00:18:48--> 00:19:13

So media, brothers and sisters, in this in this incident in this story, you can see that the answering of the eyes was not something exclusively for the prophets of Allah, you and I, it has been prescribed upon us as well. Doha, turning to Allah into our supplicating unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. And we have so much to supplicate for many brothers and sisters.

00:19:15--> 00:19:43

Now, let me mention very quickly the guidelines that we have in place for today's sermon. guideline number one, my dear brothers and sisters when it comes to law, I want you all to bear in mind, and this is a notion that has to be set in place very, very appropriately. A lot of us have got derailed thoughts when it comes to this, this this part of Doha, many brothers and sisters, Dora is an A bada whether Allah subhanho wa Taala answers your door or not.

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

You have to you have to bear this in mind. Dora is an A bad you know, you would have heard you'd come across this statement and at times it would have propped up in our own hearts too and I've made so much of the law, but Allah is not answering my eyes so we turn our backs on to ask

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

Allah there is not appropriate for a believer. Now when it comes to when you consider the as an A bad it is like Salah, it is like Zika It is like some It is like Hajj It is like ombre, it is like sadhaka Now, when you pray, do you tell yourself You know what, I don't think Allah is answering my my Salah. So you know what i'm not going to pray? Is it appropriate for a believer? Whether Allah is accepting your ibadah or not, that is not concern you and you and he doesn't concern you and me doesn't concern us.

00:20:34--> 00:21:23

It doesn't concern us servants of Allah subhanho wa Taala that leave it to Elias a virgin, but what's our duty, we are supposed to offer our Sahaba whether your honor is accepted or not, that is for Allah to decide. But you have to go on to do what to perform your ombra guideline number one point number one when it comes to her is to always tell ourselves that da is in a bad and therefore we should not be concerning ourselves with whether the DA is answered or not. Just as how we do not do so when it comes to Sala when it comes to ombre or hedge. Do do people say that you know what? I don't think my ombre is going to be accepted but Allah subhanho wa Taala so you know what, I'm not

00:21:23--> 00:22:10

going to go on ombre No, we go on ombre, we go on Hajj and we fast the month of Ramadan. With regards to it being accepted by Allah we hope for the best and we strive to ensure that we do it you know, we strive to ensure that we do it to the best of our capacity to the best of our abilities. So that it is inshallah accepted by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So likewise when it comes to do our bear to bear in mind that we have to remind ourselves that there is an e badda da is an E burdah. Therefore, you should not concern yourself primarily as to whether Allah subhanho wa Taala is going to answer your door or not. Allah says in the Quran sort of affair further Oh la moglie Sina LaHood

00:22:10--> 00:22:25

Dean, invoke or call on to a loss of Hannaford and mostly seen more or less comes from a class with sincerity with its last turning to Allah subhanho wa Taala sincerely for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:22:27--> 00:22:35

guideline number two, this is an important one, I want you to all pay an attentive ear when making dua, when making da

00:22:36--> 00:22:40

use the Beautiful Names of Allah Subhana.

00:22:41--> 00:22:50

Allah says in the Noble Quran in surah, two hour off, which is the seventh chapter I am number 181 in Hill asthma,

00:22:52--> 00:22:55

all hosts for their own home being

00:22:56--> 00:23:35

one Illa Hill, a smartphone persona, Allah has the most beautiful of names, Allah has the most beautiful names while Illa he'll smile first now, further Oh will be her further who will be her so call upon Allah, using those names by them. And my dear brothers and sisters, you see Allah subhanho wa Taala has beautiful, beautiful names. And some of you might be familiar with the Hadith that talks about his mo la Hill album, The Greatest Name of Allah as a virgin, when you invoke Allah subhanho wa Taala using the greatest name of a lot that is answered by Eliza Virgil.

00:23:36--> 00:24:00

Now what is this name of Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm sure we would all want to know. Now we have different different understandings put forth by scholars, there are some scholars who would go on to say that perhaps it is this particular name, perhaps it is that particular name. There are some who would say that this is something only known to the very righteous and the ones who are very close to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:24:01--> 00:24:04

There's one opinion put forth and I'm going to be sharing

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

two opinions, if you will, the two opinions that are that are close to my heart. And and we say that Allah knows best and disregard. So opinion number one is that the Greatest Name of Eliza Virgil is the name of Allah.

00:24:20--> 00:24:49

Because my dear brothers and sisters, every name of Allah, every name of Allah subhanho wa Taala points towards the name of Allah than him Allah. Well Illa Hill a smile for SNAP, and similarly in sort of hasher, what does Allah say? Who along hula de la Ilaha al Malik alamanni colocado Salah moodlemoot mineral Mojave mineralizes

00:24:51--> 00:24:57

mata Kabir Suba Han a long, super long Yeah.

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

You shriek

00:25:02--> 00:25:47

hula hula de la ilaha illa who he is a lot there's no deity worthy of worship other than Him al Malik, Al Quddus, a Salaam I mean al Mohammed Al Aziz al Jabbar al Mata Kabir all these names many brothers and sisters, see they point out to Allah. Allah Malik the name al Malik is from Allah. The name Allah is not from Al Malik al Malik is from Allah, Allah Mata Kabir is from the name of Allah so all these names point out to Allah subhana wa dalle. So based on this opinion, Allah is the Greatest Name. The other opinion media brothers and sisters is that is Mullah Hill album is not one name. And this is another opinion that is close to my heart is moolah Hill album is not one name.

00:25:49--> 00:26:15

But instead it depends on the situation. It depends on your data, it depends on your need. And this is why it is important that we study the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala so that we know which name to use at the appropriate moment. So for example, for example,

00:26:16--> 00:26:30

you are making the app for cure now we are in the middle of a pandemic here. So no, we're in the middle of a pandemic. So we're making the alpha healing. We're making our for a cure. So which Name of Allah subhanho dialer will you use,

00:26:31--> 00:26:32

which name

00:26:34--> 00:26:39

a Shafi a Shafi Allah is the cure.

00:26:41--> 00:26:58

Allah is the healer Allahumma anta Shafi la Shiva, Shiva Oke, O Allah, you are shafie You are the cure, you are the healer, there is no healing, there is no no cure apart from your cure.

00:27:00--> 00:27:12

So depending on the circumstances, depending on your need, you need to be able to do what to unlock the appropriate name of Allah subhanho wa Taala and make your da

00:27:13--> 00:27:31

but a lot of us what we do is we only use one name of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why because we're not familiar with the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So this should encourage us to spend more time studying the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And using the names of Allah when it comes to our two eyes, if you want your device to be answered, but Allah has origin.

00:27:35--> 00:27:47

Point number three, when it comes to your house, as a believer, you need to bear this in mind when you make a dog. One, your data is answered in this world, one your data is answered in this world.

00:27:48--> 00:28:07

If not, number two, your data will mitigate will mitigate as in it will reduce the intensity of a trial that you are in have a calamity that you are in or have a trial or calamity that is on its way on its way.

00:28:13--> 00:28:14

Let's say for example,

00:28:19--> 00:28:33

you are sick that say you are ill May Allah protect you this is just for the sake of an example. Or an individual's child is sick. May Allah protect our children? I mean, may Allah protect our families. I mean,

00:28:34--> 00:29:02

now what does he do? He's making the alpha Q. He's saying Yeah, Allah cure me from the sickness. Yeah, Allah cure my child from this illness. Now let's say if it had been decreed that the child's illness is going to become worse, so much to the extent that he is going to be on the verge of death Subhan Allah, but by this individual making the odd to Allah, Allah cure my child, Allah cure my child, what happens is,

00:29:03--> 00:29:49

the intensity of the trial is blocked by this individuals who are the intensity of the trial is blocked by this individuals to her. And what happens is the child sickness does not become worse. It does not become worse. It was supposed to become worse. The child was going to go on to the word onto the verge of dying, but because this person the father is making the law, cure my child, Allah cure my child, the intensity of the trial of the calamity is mitigated. But at times because we fail to understand that, what do we do? We say, you know what, I've been making so much of Dora so many weeks, so many months, for the cure of my child, but Allah has not answered my da, Allah has not

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

cured my child, failing to understand that your dua has been answered in a way that is appropriately deemed by Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Where the trial has been mitigated.

00:30:05--> 00:30:45

Another example for us to understand is what Illa Hillman will Allah is above all these examples, but for our weak minds to comprehend to try and comprehend, and this I heard it from another from another show, another scholar was explaining this, but it's it's a beautiful point, and I'd like to share it with you all as well. Let's say there is an employee, okay, working for somebody in a company. All right now, due to and and that's what's happening. So panela around the world, employees are being laid off, salaries are being slashed from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Help us. May Allah help us with our economies, may Allah open those of Baraka and prosperity for all of us,

00:30:45--> 00:30:53

especially for those who are suffering financially. So let's say now, this employee for the sake of this example, in the company that he's working,

00:30:55--> 00:31:12

the directors, if you will, let's just go with one boss, the boss has decided maybe due to poor performance, or perhaps because they're cutting, you know, costs and whatnot to reduce his salary. Let's say he was earning

00:31:13--> 00:31:36

$500, let's say he was earning $500. Now it has been decided, Okay, they've had a meeting and whatnot, and it has been decided to reduce his salary to $250. From 500, they would have it, reduce it to $250. Because, you know, let's say there are a number of reasons.

00:31:37--> 00:31:46

Now, the employee is not aware of this, he is clocking in his hours, he is doing hard work, and he doesn't know that his salary is going to be haft.

00:31:48--> 00:32:34

Now, what does he do? The decision has been made in the morning, and they're going to be informing the employee, let's say in the evening about this. In the evening, he goes to meet the boss. And he puts forward a request letter stating that his expenses have gone up and whatnot, and stuff like that, that he would like for an increase in his salary. So I hope you got the example he's currently earning five $500, the management has decided to cut his salary and bring it down to $250. But before they inform him of that decision, he submits a request letter because he is not aware and he genuinely has needs, he submits a request letter for his salary to be increased to $750.

00:32:35--> 00:32:51

So what happens now, in the evening, the manager gets the letter, the boss gets the letter, and he looks at the letter and he thinks to himself here, we are now about to inform him that his salary has been halved, to $250. And he's making a request for his salary to be increased.

00:32:52--> 00:33:35

So yeah, miskeen, you know, he is going to be in a lot of difficulty. So what do they do? They discuss again amongst themselves, and they decide, you know, what, okay, we obviously at this point, at this juncture, we can't entertain his request for an increase in salary. But let's keep the reduction of his salary on hold, and let him go on with his existing salary. So now this employee is informed in return, that your salary will remain a $500. Now, this employee, if he is not aware of the context, I want you all to put yourselves in his shoes. How do you think he will think he'll think I submitted a request for an increase I want $750. But they're just going on to pay me only

00:33:35--> 00:33:54

$500. Little Is he aware of the fact that if he had not made the request in a genuine way, his salary would have been halved from 500 to $250. Similarly, my dear brothers and sisters, you may be in the middle of a trial. And for as long as you keep making sure

00:33:55--> 00:34:05

you do as at times answered in such a way that it mitigates the trial or the calamity or the challenge that you are in. So don't give up on Don't, don't turn your back on to.

00:34:07--> 00:34:25

Number three, if your die is not answered in this world. And if your data is not answered in such a way that it mitigates your trials, your calamities and your challenges, then your heart as a believer will definitely be answered in in an era in the hereafter. So don't ever lose hope when it comes to your da

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

guideline number four, this is an important one as well. guideline number four. You need to have good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala when making Doha Hadith is reported by Abu huraira Allah one where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam his report to have said, Anna in the one near Abitibi, I am as my servants expect of me or I am as my servants think of me. If my servant things good of me, he will have it and if he thinks evil of me, he will have it. So your thoughts

00:35:01--> 00:35:40

Your thoughts? If you think good of a loss of Hannah Adana then you can expect good from Eliza richer but if you think evil so when you're making the house let's say for example you're making dua with regards to seeking forgiveness yeah Allah forgive me of my sins Allah forgive me of my sense. Some of us you know shaytan creeps into our minds and tells us you know what, Allah is not going to answer your to us or Allah is not going to forgive you of your sense. Now we should not entertain this thought many brother, my dear sister, we should constantly keep killing ourselves. A love villain forgive me of my sense, Allah will forgive me. does Allah not describe himself as a four as

00:35:40--> 00:35:55

Rahim as the Most Merciful as the most forgiving? no sin is too big for Allah to forgive, Allah will forgive me Allah will forgive me so constantly as you keep making dua keep having good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:35:56--> 00:36:36

The next guideline My dear brothers and sisters is along with making dua, you need to strive to get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala through good deeds, through fulfilling the obligatory good deeds, as well as optional knuffel good deeds This is of utmost importance, but not suffice to only keep making the harmony brothers and sisters, you need to try strive to get closer to Allah Azerbaijan, we have a famous Hadith codici where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, You know what a hadith could say is, it's not considered the Quran. It is from the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam but this is Allah saying this. So Allah says,

00:36:37--> 00:36:58

men either leave religion for the admin to have been hurt. He who is hostile to a friend of mine to a valley of mine, a friend of mine, I declare war against that individual. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to say, my slave approaches me with nothing more beloved to me than what I have made obligatory upon him.

00:36:59--> 00:37:37

By fulfilling that which Allah has made obligatory upon us, we get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then Allah goes on to say, and my slave keeps drawing nearer and nearer to me with voluntary good deeds by performing knuffel optional good deeds, you see zecca is obligatory zecca for example, is obligated so you have to give out your zecca if you come under the category where as a chi is obligated, then you have to give it out by doing it you're getting closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. On top of that, if you also give sadaqa sadaqa is optional, it's optional, it's not obligatory for you to give it but by giving it you get closer and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:37:37--> 00:38:03

praying Serato or praying fudger as a Muslim Asia is obligatory You have to do it by doing it you get closer to Allah azza wa jal by by praying Salah to Doha. by praying the sooner or robotic The sooner prayers before your first present after your fourth prayers by praying the highest will mustard by praying all these soon prayers you get closer and closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then Eliza Virgil says

00:38:05--> 00:38:41

as he keeps doing nothing did he get closer he gets closer and closer until I love him. And when I love him, Allah says, I am his hearing with which he hears I am his sight with which he sees I am his hand with which he sees his and I am his foot with which he walks. If he asks me, I will surely give it to him. Now that's the point many brothers and sisters in Islam when it comes to law, as you get closer and closer to Allah through your obligatory and your NFL deeds, Allah is saying, if my slave asks me, I will give it to him allow

00:38:43--> 00:38:44

law

00:38:45--> 00:39:27

do we have? Do we not have so many things to ask allies over there and I say things I don't mean materialistic things only. There are so many things so many matters that we have to raise our hands to Allah subhanho wa Taala for so many brothers and sisters in Islam, let us see is these guidelines. guideline number six is that you have to ensure that your food, drink and clothing. ohana you have to strive to ensure that many brothers and sisters in Islam if what you consume is not halal. If you what you are wearing is not halal. You cannot expect your dough has to be answered by allies. Imagine we have a famous Hadith that talks about this, where the Prophet slicin describes

00:39:27--> 00:39:40

a man disheveled he's raising his hands and he's making well I can matter I Maha Ramesh rabbu horombo malba suhu haraam. His food is haram. His drink is haram his clothing is haram who are the bill haraam?

00:39:41--> 00:39:51

He's been nourished in haram fun I used to jab Allah, the prophets and it says how will his daughters be answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala so my dear brothers and sisters in Islam,

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

it is of utmost importance that we strive hard to ensure that our food, our drink and our clothing

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

is pure is halaal we to strive for this with the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:40:07--> 00:40:56

So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it is it is of utmost importance, that that we strive to do this, to, that we strive to hold on to these guidelines and turn to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, seeking, seeking his his forgiveness, and asking him and him alone when it comes to our desires when it comes to our supplications so my dear brothers and sisters in Islam.
