we always begin by praising Allah Subhana Medina who is a creator sustainer nareesha protect and cure. We ask Allah the Almighty to shaba 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 birth with utmost sincerity until the day of
all slaves of a law. Each and every day is a beautiful day law. In the law, ha man law in a manner, do not lose hope. Do not despair for Allah subhanho wa Taala is with us. As long as we believe in Allah subhana wa Tada. As long as we believe in Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as long as we place our complete trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala has gone a long way in Yamazaki, Allah subhana wa Taala is sufficient for us. Come what may come what may whatever the problem, whatever the affliction whatever the calamity that may hit us. Inevitably, no doubt a loss behind and Medina will get us through it. For he at the end of the day is the best Disposer of all of our affairs of all of
our affairs. Let me put it like this.
you are being chased by an enemy by a hostile enemy who wants to kill you. Just imagine you are being chased by an enemy, an enemy, a hostile enemy that wants to kill you.
You end up being cornered by a cave and you enter that cave. Just imagine this you enter that cave. And after entering that cave, you realize that it is a dead end. There is no way out. You have no way to escape from these enemies of yours. To whom my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, to whom do you think you will turn at that time for help? No doubt you will turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala this was the same situation. Our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and please remember Salawat whenever I mentioned his beautiful name, our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his very, very close companion. Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu
we're in when the pouvoir of Quraysh chased them while they were making hegira. Wise they were making hegira almost 50 of them 50 of the Kufa armed to the teeth of Maharashtra, 50 of them soldiers, they were hunting for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hunting for his companion Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu to kill them. They see a cave
Fulani sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. The minute they see that cave on the Mount of tower, they hide in that cave. They hide in that cave, Abu Bakr the long line. Now they are in the cave, the enemies that surrounded the cave, they were looking for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu Bakr the long line who looks up and then he says yeah, Rasul Allah.
If any one of them were to just look down at his feet, he would see us jarocin Rama, if any one of those kuffar, if they were to just look down at their feet, he would see us Yasuda law, he would see us My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, the companionship between Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and Abu Bakr idioma one who was an amazing companionship and amazing friendship that they share from the very inception through thick and thin. Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, throughout his mission throughout his mission through thick and thin, pausing for a moment, talking about companionship.
On a more personal note, I wish to say with a very grateful heart, that it is a very similar companionship and friendship that I share with the group brother Sherman.
Our friendship began for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala. He's a very close friend of mine. And throughout, he has been a pillar of support helping me and supporting me through all my dow and DD related activities. And today I'm very happy to welcome him into my family, into my family.
As he is marrying in my family in sha Allah, Allah Allah. And I ask Allah Subhana Allah, Allah to bless him, and to bless his soon to be wife, and may He unite them forever. I mean, please see me.
Coming back to the story.
Abu Bakr on the long line who was scared, it was Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam. You know what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said at that moment, amazing words, words that should fill each and every one of our hearts with hope. with positivity with tranquility. Amazing words. Oh my beloved companion Lata has an in law her mind. La Zen in Nevada man, do not lose hope. Do not worry. Do not despair. Allah is with us. Allahu Akbar. Allah is with us in another narration. At that point, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, there were angels sent by Allah subhanho wa Taala. To cover that cave to cover
that cave. And Allah subhana wa Taala states in the noble for iron
ya, Allah subhanho wa Taala send down Sakina upon them.
Allah send down Sakina and help them with a false that no one eyes could not see angels lost behind them who Allah sent down angels to protect them. My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam.
Let us benchmark that incident with our own lives that has benchmark that incident with our own lines, at times, or many a time, we come upon crossroads, we come upon many junctions in our lives, where we may feel confused as what to do or where to head What am I to choose at that moment. And at that point, many a time is the fear of the unknown that grips us. Let's say for example, just before a marriage, just before a marriage, and arranged marriage, you go you see the girl with one meeting two meetings, three meetings, you cannot really understand the girl in totality. Unlike Western cultures, where they date at times they sleep with one another, and then they break off. But Islam
is so pure, so beautiful, that we maintain our chastity and at this point, my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, it is a leap of faith that we take placing our trust in Alaska.
It is a leap of faith that we take placing our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and we have nothing
to worry, we believers have nothing to worry, nothing at all. Because if we fear Allah Subhana Allah, we have Allah, the King of all kings. by our side. Let me ask you a question.
If the president of this country is the president of this country, what to call you up and tell you, dear brother, dear brother Reba, for example.
I'm giving you Presidential Security. Go wherever you want in the country, drive at whatever speed you wish. Do whatever you want to do. Just if the cop stop, you just tell them my name, or he gives a special card you just flashed the card and you move.
You know, you it'll be difficult to catch brother.
But then this thing, not that not a worldly president, not a worldly King, Allah, the King of all kings. If he is going to be by your side, not a worldly president. With one election, perhaps he may be toppled. And then brother is back to normal.
A law King of all kings.
Allah subhana wa Taala will come into Sha he gives kingdom for whom He wills with Islam and Tisha he gives honor, dignity, respect for whom He wills he is Elmore is he is the one who gives honor and respect
to the lumen Tasha He is the one who puts down people be ethical, all good is in the hands of a boss behind them.
Allah azza wa jal, he is powerful and all powerful over everything. He's capable of everything. This is the maker that is the maker that we are subject to.
So any aspect in our lives the minute we place our complete trust in Allah subhana wa Taala and put our feet forward. Allahu Akbar, Allah subhanho wa Taala is with us, and no doubt, we will attain success in this world as well as the hereafter.
An amazing Hadith which has been recorded in Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said amazing is the affair of the believer. Amazing is the affair of the believer. There is good for him in everything there is good for him in everything. And that is for no one other than the believer. There is good for him in everything. And that is for no one other than the believer in a boss behind a dialer. If good times comes his way, he expresses gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala and if hardship comes his way, he endures it patiently and that is even better for him. Allahu Akbar.
My beloved shed, Imam Ibn Al Karim Rahim Omar, he states in regard to this Heidi, that amazing is the state of a believer there are three states for a believer. He goes through three stages or three states one is where he is constantly being blessed by a boss behind him. I don't have to tell you in another place remarkable reports from another seller seller for no sila pious predecessors where he says if you wish to I identify or recognize the bounties of Allah subhana wa ala upon you just close your eyes for a moment. Just close your eyes for a moment. What happens when you close your eyes. Everything around you goes god, I can't see anybody. Then you understand the value of the eyesight
that are lost behind them what Allah has given you, and then you realize how much sugar how much gratitude you must express unto a massive behind him with the island. So we are constantly we are basically rowing in an ocean of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala we are supposed to express gratitude upon gratitude to amass the HANA medalla. And what does Allah guarantee for us if we do that law,
law as the
law in Chicago, if you express gratitude, as he then I shall definitely give you more
water in Kaffir tome but on the other hand, if you reject if you reject, if you are not grateful in
indeed, my punishment is severe. My Torment is a painful torment Allahu Akbar.
The next state that Mr. Clean Rahim Allah highlights is that a slave of Allah may go to tests. Allah subhana wa Taala may test that slave of his may test the slave of his then again, he is not supposed to lose hope he is not supposed to despair. Some people despair. Oh my life sucks. My life sucks. You know that guy is driving in a nice motor vehicle. I'm still going in my bicycle. My dear brother, my dear sister, if I lost behind him what Allah loves you. He tests you look at the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the most beloved of all creations unto Allah subhanho wa Taala the best of all creations. Look at how much of trials he went through sallallahu alayhi wa
sallam, his whole life was full of trials. His whole mission was full of trials. Why? Because Allah azza wa jal loved him in one direction or supervisor Allahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said along the lines of these words, that in terms of trials, the first people who are put through the most of trials are the ambia are the prophets, the galaxy of prophets, they are the ones who are put through trials, why are they the most beloved unto Allah? subhanho wa Taala? Shouldn't they be the ones who are living in ease and comfort in this world? But why is the last behind and what Allah putting them through trials? Because he loves them. And if Allah azza wa jal puts us through trials,
we are supposed to endure them patiently, without uttering any statement that might displease our beloved Mater.
we shall indeed test your Misha immunol house with fear well, Joe hunger Wanaka samina armoire loss of wealth while anfis loss loss of lives worth Amarok loss of provision, but then, while best she saw him but give glad tidings to the patient ones give glad tidings to those who endure all of that with patience.
They are those upon salvato, mira bizim blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala upon them what we like doing and they are the ones we're being guided among.
So Mama, Rahim Allah He states the second stage is that Allah behind them where data may put you through tests and at that point, you are supposed to be a patient and if you do that, you will be successful. Do not lose hope law has done in Nevada man, do not lose hope of loss of Hannah what Allah is with us. The third stage is a stage where we commit sins, we are sinners, all of us, myself included, we sin on a constant basis on a perpetual basis, the minute we go out our eyes sin, our tongues sin, we keep sinning. So it is upon us to keep on seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanho wa Taala. Once again, do not lose hope think optimistic thoughts about Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah
subhana wa tada states in the noble Koran. Not there Eva je ne.
Mohamed Salah Malinois, Selim informed my slaves look at how Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing us in for my slaves that unli analog Ofu Rahim that indeed I am the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. Does that not fill our hearts with hope? But then again, we're not supposed to play games with a loss of a hula, hula hula, we must not take the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala for granted because the very next ayah What does Allah Subhana horadada say? What?
But then remember, that indeed, my punishment either be
a painful trauma. So therefore we must balance between hope and fear, hoping the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and fearing the punishment of Avast behind and what Allah these are the two wings of a believer, a believer cannot a bird cannot fly with one wing it needs to wings likewise a believer needs these two wings hope on hope and fear to fly beautifully unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. Therefore my dear respected elders, brothers and sisters in Islam, do not lose hope. Do not fear the unknown. Do not feel uncomfortable to come out of your comfort zone. Place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala in all of your endeavors, do not lose hope be optimistic, be positive, do
not be negative. Do not be
pessimists to be optimistic because our Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the greatest optimist to walk on the face of this earth and we are following him He is our role model. Therefore we Muslims, the Muslim woman needs to be optimistic needs to be positive in every single aspect of our lives. And no doubt we will attain success here and Jenna is for us. We are successful in the era to so May Allah subhanho wa Taala bless the marriage that is about to take place in another few minutes. And may God Almighty bless the two spouses. May He bless the two spouses, may he unite them in a bond of marriage that will last for an eternity May he fortify and protect their marriage May
he concrete and strengthen their marriage. May He fill their hearts with pure love, care and mercy for one another. And may Allah azza wa jal bless the two spouses with Jr, little Shammi James and Jr, little arminas and may He make them obedient and a coolness to their eyes. May He forgive all of our sins, except our good deeds and just as how he united us here this beautiful rainy afternoon may unite us in the gardens of Gemini with our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
