00:00:35--> 00:00:37

E,

00:01:13--> 00:01:14

either

00:01:53--> 00:02:21

all praise and thanks be to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala, who is our Creator sustainer nourish, protect, and cure. We ask Allah the Almighty to show 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 the

00:02:23--> 00:03:27

slaves of Allah, first and foremost, I advise myself and then all of your present here, let us introspect ourselves, let us examine ourselves by instilling in our hearts by permeating our lives with tequila, and that is to fear a loss of the hand of water IRA and to be conscious of a loss behind the IRA during every single second of our lives, bearing in mind that after exerting ourselves all whilst exerting ourselves to the maximum in terms of adopting taqwa we are not supposed to entertain any thoughts of self righteousness, Allahu Akbar. This is our Deen in a nutshell, we are supposed to exert ourselves to the maximum in terms of acquiring taqwa in terms of

00:03:27--> 00:04:21

adopting taqwa in our lives, but taking precaution, taking heed that we do not entertain thoughts of self righteousness. We should not think that oh, I am a pious and righteous man, look at that individual. He is a sinner, or I made it to the masjid for Salatu fudger. I prayed behind the Imam right next to them and then I know of my friend who is snoring away at home. So I am more pious, I am more righteous than that individual Allahu Akbar. This is a quality from the qualities of shape on and that will result in Kibera in arrogance filling our hearts. We must never ever entertain thoughts of self righteousness. On the other hand, we should pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:04:21--> 00:04:59

Because none of us, none of us can guarantee that we will be people of taqwa until the last moment until the Angel of Death comes in front of us, none of us can guarantee none of us can guarantee so we should keep praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah make me from the people of taqwa Allah keep my heart steadfast upon your deen, yeah Allah let me not deviate, let my heart not deviate. It is keep praying to Allah behind him what Allah and let us not become proud and self righteous. May Allah subhanahu wa taala save us all from pride and may

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

Almighty make us all from the people of taqwa, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. The topic for today's photo is insha Allah Allah, every dark cloud has a silver lining. This is the topic for today's footbaww. Every dark cloud has a silver lining it is an idiom. It is a phrase that goes along the lines in terms of its meaning that however difficult the situation may be, whatever trial or difficulty you're going through, remember or know for a fact that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. However dark the skies may be. Or even if you look at a dark cloud, you would notice that every dark cloud has a silver lining in the sense

00:05:51--> 00:06:43

that a new day is going to break out and make those dark clouds vanish away. So let us not lose hope. It does have hope in the mercy of Allah behind them what Allah and let us keep our trust in Allah Subhana Allah because when we look around today, when we look at the world today, when we look at the world today, we see disturbing scenes, we hear disturbing pieces of information, we see so much of carnage, we see all of these atrocities that are taking place. Through the hands of these brutal oppressors and tyrants. We see so much of disturbing scenes, we see that wherever we look, whether it be international or whether it be local. If you look at the law, if you look at justice,

00:06:43--> 00:07:34

if you look at the rule, if you look at administration, all of it has been contaminated. By oppression, it has been contaminated by corruption, it has been contaminated by nepotism, etc. All of it has been contaminated. If we scaled down to our own personal lives, all this while I was talking at an international level, at a global level, if we scaled down to our own personal lives, each and every one of us is fighting our own battles. We are all fighting battles from within each and every one of us. We are going through different trials, different calamities, different misfortunes. And that's why I said in the beginning, that it is not upon us to entertain thoughts of

00:07:34--> 00:08:22

self righteousness. No. Are we supposed to be swift in judging other people, we are not supposed to judge other people because like I said, all of us are fighting different battles from within each one of us is going through a different test that perhaps you and I cannot at times recognize. So like I said, if you make it to the masjid for Serato fudger don't think oh, this brother didn't make it for Salatin. So he is a sinner a time some people go a step worse and they say that he has been designed for jahannam I am the genetti he is he handed me May Allah subhanahu Allah save us all. Let us purify our hearts. Let us not think ill of our own brothers because it does make excuses for

00:08:22--> 00:08:34

them. Let us give them the benefit of the doubt. And throughout the hotel bar insha Allah Allah, I will be repeating a phrase in the Arabic language that is lotta

00:08:35--> 00:09:23

lotta Zan did not grieve, do not become sad, do not lose hope. Do not despair. So at times, I might repeat it in the Arabic language and I don't want the I don't want y'all to not understand that particular phrase latha has done in the sense Do not grieve. Do not be sad, do not lose hope. Do not despair. Because optimism is something important, extremely important for the home of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam thinking positive, because our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the greatest optimist this earth has ever seen, or this earth has ever witnessed Allahu Akbar. He was never ever a negative individual. He was an extremely positive individual. And

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

I recall the words of a wise man who once said that a nation, a nation is very rarely destroyed by a physical combat. A nation is very rarely destroyed by a physical combat, but on the other hand, a nation, a nation that is subject to a psychological defeat a nation that is subject to a psychological defeat a nation that has become victim to a psychological defeat, there is a high possibility that that

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

nation may be erased from the pages of history. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all, let us not lose hope. Let us not become victims to a psychological defeat. Coming back to an international level. You look around you look at the atrocities taking place in Russia, in Palestine and other parts of the world. The Muslim Ummah is being battered, but yet we are not supposed to lose hope. Let us not slip into an abyss of negativity, let us not slip into an abyss of despair. Let us rely upon Allah subhanahu wa tada and let us be positive because like I said the topic in accordance with the topic every dark cloud has a silver lining that does not lose hope in the mercy of Allah behind

00:10:45--> 00:11:23

them what Allah that does rely upon Allah subhanho wa Taala let us make the word cool. Let us make let us rely upon our powerful maker because justice how justice how he is the trials and calamities that people before us were put through the same Allah our beloved maker our powerful maker is with us lotta has an Innova Hama Anna Lata Hassan Do not be sad, do no body do not despair in the law Hama Anna indeed a was behind a Horta, Allah is with us law, do not lose hope.

00:11:24--> 00:12:15

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, it does not lose hope it does not become let us not become negative, let us be positive. Let us let us greet each and every day with a positive approach as this is from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because the more positive we become, the more pure our hearts will become. Insha Allah hota Allah and the more we rely upon Allah subhanho wa Taala grief and misfortune will not attack us grief and misfortune will not be for us. Because whatever the trial may be, whatever the calamity may be, look at the instance where Abu Bakr radi Allahu I'm the Sahaba great Sahabi rhodiola one, his daughter was landed Ayesha Ravi a long

00:12:15--> 00:13:03

line ha his daughter, his beloved daughter, the beloved wife of our Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was landed and relatives close people to Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu. They were also involved in the slander. They also spoke bad about eyeshadow, the avanza people who Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu was spending on he was looking after them he was maintaining them. Those many people spoke bad ever eyeshadow, the Allahu Allah and ha but look at the magnanimity of Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu He forgave them, and he did not stop the payments. He did not stop maintaining them because of the beautiful quality of forgiveness. He forgave them Allahu Akbar. Now scaling that back

00:13:03--> 00:13:33

to our personal lives, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. When you look around today, there may be many people who may talk bad about you. There may be many people who may talk bad about you, they may not agree with you, perhaps they may talk bad about you, at times, they may backbite about you, they may go around carrying tales about you. They may spread rumors against you, they may lie against you, Allahu Akbar.

00:13:34--> 00:14:17

What is the difference when all of these things took place? To the most beloved of the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala if it happened for the MBR AlLahi wa Salatu was Salam. Why can't it happen in our own lives? If there are people who put you down if there are people who hurt you? If there are people who assert your rights, if there are people who have cheated you if there are people who have hoodwinked you, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, don't take it personal. Don't take it personally. Rather forgive them because Allah Subhana Allah Allah, Allah gulfood or Rahim them most forgiving the Most Merciful will indeed forgive you.

00:14:33--> 00:14:37

Me well.

00:14:38--> 00:14:59

Let them forgive overlook Well, yes, let them forgive let them overlook Allah. buena fear Allahu Allah. do not wish that Allah subhanahu wa taala should forgive your aka Lola hula hula Rahim. And Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful. Let us be merciful unto the creation of Allah Subhana

00:15:00--> 00:15:29

What is it hammelmann fill out your hammer command p sama, be merciful unto the people who are on the face of this earth ie the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala mockumentary sama, and the ones in the heavens, I lost the hand and water Island the melodica will have mercy upon you. It has inculcate this beautiful quality of mercy. Let us adopt that from the life of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam won

00:15:33--> 00:16:17

me over 100 sallallahu alayhi wa sallam we have not sent you except as a mercy to mankind Allahu Akbar, to the creation to mankind and Jean gein Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was a mercy. Let us inculcate that beautiful quality, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, because that quality of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that beautiful quality, that amazing quality. That quality was the catalyst that brought the people towards Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam it was that amazing quality that brought people to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah, the Almighty states in the noble Koran,

00:16:19--> 00:16:20

Furby Mara

00:16:31--> 00:16:32

boo boomin ha.

00:16:36--> 00:17:19

If it was not for that beautiful quality of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam if it was not for that mercy, if it was not for that mercy, all of the Sahaba ridhwan Vita Allah Allah Himeji mine who had gathered around Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam if he were not a mercy, if he were not a mercy sent to them, and if he did not deal with them with merciful qualities, if he had been hard hearted, if he had been harsh, if he had been strict with them, they would have all dispersed away from our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. Let us adopt the teaching of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam let us be merciful unto

00:17:19--> 00:18:08

one another, let us forgive one another. Let us be kind to one another. Let us think good to one another, that has not put down one another letter perhaps you may differ with an individual see every man to his own opinion, every man to his own opinion, we have not been created alike. We are all different. Maybe I may think of something you may think the exact opposite of Ahava. You may think the exact opposite. Look at the Mr. rahima Humala look at us scholars, Rafi mamula Look at the beautiful way they differ in their opinions at times. Imam Abu hanifa Rahim Houma la Imam Abu hanifa Hema hula would have said something he would have said something and Imam Shafi Rahim Allah would

00:18:08--> 00:18:53

have said the exact opposite of that same issue. But both of them respectfully disagreed. The two schools of thought respectfully disagree with one another. They don't diss one another. They don't put down one another. They don't disgrace one another. They don't go around spreading rumors about one another. nor should we because this is not from the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam This is not from the beautiful Deen of Islam. Let us purify our hearts. It is purify our thoughts. If you don't have something good to say it has remained silent in accordance with the words of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. If we have something good to say, then we speak. If

00:18:53--> 00:19:14

we don't have anything good to say, then we remain silent. Whether it be in the real world, whether it be in the cyber world, whether it be in any context, any platform. If we have good to say then we open our mouths if we don't have good to say we remain silent in accordance with the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:19:15--> 00:19:59

coming back to the quality of mercy. Let me narrate unto y'all a beautiful incident, an incident that highlights the mercy of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the beauty of the social interaction of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a profit. The greatest of all profits say they're mostly the greatest of all profits. Why? He said a long while he will sell them the noblest of all creation. He had been shouldered with so much of responsibilities, but he made time for his Sahaba ridhwan Allahu taala Allah Eva Marie, so much the extent that each and every Sahabi thought that he Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam loves me

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

Most Allahu

00:20:02--> 00:20:49

Allahu Akbar, which leader today My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam can emulate our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in such a way that every single subject every single forever thought that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam loves me the most, when he used to talk to them when he used to address them. He used to focus on every single individual Allahu Akbar, he used to focus on every single one of them, he wouldn't look at just one area. And at times, when we associate eyes, when we socialize, we should be socialized in a way that we like to rub shoulders with celebrities. We like to rub shoulders with the rich, we like to rub shoulders with the famous

00:20:49--> 00:20:55

but Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to rub shoulders with the poor and the destitute.

00:20:57--> 00:21:10

He sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to pray, Allah let me die. Let me die amongst the destitute and resurrect me amongst the destitute, amongst the poor, amongst the needy.

00:21:12--> 00:21:36

Today, we take pride Oh, I know so and so politician. I know so and so, Minister, oh, I have this contact number in my phone book. But in regard to the poor, in regard to the destitute in regard to the disabled, in regard to those who don't have any social standing, we don't even invite them to our gatherings. We don't even invite them to our functions

00:21:38--> 00:21:41

against the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam.

00:21:43--> 00:22:35

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, there was once a Sahabi rhodiola one. His name was a hair even haraam. His name was here. Even haraam. His name was here. He was a Sahabi rhodiola Han, who Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam loved very, very dearly. He was a Bedouin. He was a Bedouin, who used to come from the outskirts to visit Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And whenever he was poor, he was not a handsome looking person. He did not have a great social standing. He was not from the city. He was from the outskirts. He was a Bedouin. He was poor. He was living hand to mouth he was just making ends meet. But when ever he used to come to visit, Rasulullah

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

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he used to bring a small gift, whatever it may be for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, whenever he used to come to visit Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he used to bring bring some milk. He used to bring some cottage cheese perhaps he used to bring some meat, something that was within his capacity as a token of love for Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam love that shahabi radi Allahu anhu dearly, you should love him very, very much Zahara de la one, one day and once Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that za here is our Bedouin za here is our bedwin and we

00:23:22--> 00:24:06

are his city dwellers. Allahu Akbar. He is our Bedouin, and we are his city dwellers. Once Zaha Hadid Allahu anhu was in the marketplace because he used to come from the outskirts. He used to bring things and sell in the market make a small profit, and he used to go back to the outskirts. One day he was in the marketplace. He was selling some things and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Whenever I read this narration made he respected elders and brothers in Islam. I go green with envy in regard to this hobby or the loved one who I envy him so much. Allahu Akbar. Just listen to this amazing narration Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes to the marketplace and then

00:24:06--> 00:24:53

he sees Zaheer radi Allahu anhu in the marketplace. And you know what Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did? He went behind Zaha radi Allahu anhu. And he hugged, he hugged zahavi, a long one who like this from behind from behind tightly say if this was the one who he hugged him like this tightly. He hugged him tightly. And Zahara de la mano could not see who was the person who hugged him from behind. So he was a bit worried because he was a bedroom and he's not from the city. You started saying our Sydney or Sydney? Leave me Leave me Who is it? Who is it because he could not see who was hugging him from behind. And then Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam cries out in a loud

00:24:53--> 00:24:59

voice. I have a valuable slave with me who wants to buy this slave

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

from me, who wants to buy this slave from me the sense of humor Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, Who wants to buy this slave from me zonula the Allahu anhu still could not recognize who was behind him and then he turns.

00:25:17--> 00:26:06

He feels the softness of the palm of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. And then there is this electrifying moment, that rush of adrenaline that went through him. The minute he recognized Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam hugging him from behind in the middle of the marketplace. The minute he recognized Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he let his body go loose, and he fell onto the back in the in the sense onto the chest of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, enjoying the hug of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and then he is our hero, the one who stays yasunaga I am a I am an ugly person. I

00:26:06--> 00:26:22

don't have any social standing. I am a poor person. You will never fetch a good price for me. You can't market me. I'm not a person who can be marketed because I am a poor destitute person. And then my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam.

00:26:24--> 00:26:31

You know what? Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam states Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam state oza here

00:26:33--> 00:26:49

you may think of yourself as not valuable, you may think of yourself as unmarketable. But in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala you are extremely valuable. You are extremely precious.

00:26:52--> 00:27:45

You are extremely valuable in the sight of Allah subhana wa tada and you are extremely precious in the sight of Allah Subhana Allah. Look at the Sunnah of our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. At times we shun people who love us sincerely. Because we see someone who is of a high social standing, who has well, who is famous at times to greet him, and at times to meet him, we shun away people who are poor, who are destitute, and at times one needy, or at times who don't have a social standing, but they love us sincerely from the bottom of their hearts. And at times, the people will rush to go and meet those

00:27:45--> 00:27:57

people, those famous people, those powerful people, at times they just ignore us. They ignore us and we ignore the people who love us sincerely.

00:27:58--> 00:28:26

We ignore them and we give them a cold shoulder because we prefer to rub shoulders with the rich and the famous male lost behind them what Allah protect us all. May Allah subhanahu ALLAH forgive our sins, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. The Sahaba is one litre Allah Allah used to describe Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as mu tawassul.

00:28:27--> 00:29:19

Muto was in a prison, that image the vessel, the Sahaba reason why the Allah Allah Jemaine used to describe Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as a man who used to be in perpetual sadness, he used to be in perpetual grief. But whenever you looked at him, he had this beautiful smile on his face, Allahu Akbar, why perpetual grief? Why perpetual sadness, he was worried about his own oma. He was worried about you. And I mean, he respected elders and brothers in Islam, he's only lament he's only cry was the Amati yamatai yamatai. This was his only worry. He was not worried about his family. He was not worried about his loved ones. He was worried about his own law. We are his own

00:29:19--> 00:29:54

man, my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. So likewise, when we look around today, and when we see all of these calamities, all of these trials misfortunes, yes, I know, we have to be sad. We have to grieve. Let us also be sad let us grieve, but let us not lose that cheerful smile on our faces. Let us not become victims of a psychological defeat. Because this oma is an oma for glory. This oma victory has been sealed for this coma, so never lose hope never despair, a loss behind them what Allah is with us.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

In Nevada, ma na, na na na na na

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

law in the law hamana Do not worry indeed a law is with us do not lose hope. Indeed Allah is with us Do not despair, indeed a law the Almighty is with us. May Allah subhana wa Taala forgive all of our sins. Many the almighty alleviate the sufferings the Muslim Ummah is going through. May He the almighty forgive all of our sins and accept all of our good deeds and justice how he united us here this beautiful afternoon. May the almighty unite us with in the goddess of gender with our beloved Master Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

00:30:37--> 00:30:38
