Mateus Lima back for the bottle law of Alcoa data people running analyses that are to be led even a ship on evergy Yeah, you held Idina monastery no this slavery was Sala in a lot of as odd.
We begin by praising Allah subhana wa Tada. We asked him for his help. We asked him to open doors of prosperity for all of us. We asked him for cure, we asked him for healing, we asked him for safety. We asked him for security, and we asked him to send his choices of blessings and salutations upon the beloved messenger 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
my dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, in an authentic hadith, the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa alayhi wa sallam once passed by a great and I am narrating the Hadith, this incident in my own words, I'm paraphrasing. The narration goes along the lines of these words. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he passes by a grape.
And he sees a lady, a lady by the grave, she's beeping, she said, She's sobbing, she's in grief. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he looks at her. And he tells her, be conscious of Allah, and hold on to patience, be conscious of a law is speery it The thing that I was very be conscious of a lot and hold on to patience. This lady, she looks at the prophets that alarm it very seldom. And she did not recognize the messenger. She more or less does the prophets analysis on them to let her be? Leave me alone. Leave me alone.
In other words, go away and leave me alone. So the prophets are alone Why the various men she retorted, as such when she said that the professor is moved on. And there were others were observing this, they quickly run up to her and tell her that was the Messenger of Allah sallallahu.
Now she's disturbed, she's perturbed.
She now runs, looking for the prophets, Allah, why do you even send them and perhaps the Prophet was devastated. Perhaps the Prophet was at home, she arrives, she finds the Prophet, she goes to him. And now she excuses this. she apologizes. She says, You're a fool ally did not know it was you? Forgive me, please excuse me. And at that juncture, the prophets that allow it very, very seldom is a statement. He tells in lemma sobre, in the southern Mati Buddha, he looks at her and she says, because now she's willing to take the advice of the corpus analysis. She said, you know, there are Sula, forgive me, excuse me, I'm going to hold on to patients because it's the Prophet advising her
right. So then the Prophet looked at her and he said, that indeed patience is at the beginning of the trial, it is at the holding on to patients is at the beginning of the trials. So from this ideal, what we learn, what we understand, is that
this life, as Allah says, In surah, Allah de falafel nowata, one fire, interestingly, firstly, depth is mentioned. It is Allah create a death and life, not life and death, again, to get our priorities straight. Don't get misled by this worldly life that that is inevitable. So it is he who created Captain life for what purpose, Leah to do our code to test you all.
So a test is not going to be rosy. A test is not going to be rosy. And this life is filled with the trials, tests and challenges. Now a lot of us are disheartened because of the difficulty that we are in because of the turbulence that we are in. Oh no, not again. Oh, no, not again. We really can't take it anymore. We can't take the economic crunch. We can't take the fact that you know we'd have to stay at home. Why all over again Why? Why another cluster? Why a second way? Why this why that and we
Want to question every single thing?
Do you brothers in Islam, this is part and parcel of the plan of Allah
has been Allah or namond workI in Nam and moda.
And But does the beautiful teachings of the Quran and the Sunnah DHS at this juncture hold on to patients, a sub A sub patients is of three types, at least, number one, a sub annual muhammara.
To hold on to patients and stay away from that which Allah has made her on. Yes, that particular transaction looks seemingly lucrative, seemingly, there's a lot of incentive for you to go ahead with the transaction, it's very attractive, the way they are pitched it, it's very attractive, you feel like you want to go ahead with that transaction. It's a lucrative job offer. It's a lucrative transaction, there's so much of ambiguity. But when you look at the transaction, you putting in this little money from this side, and on the other side, you're getting so much more in return. Even you don't understand the transaction, it's so ambiguous. All you know is you're putting 10 rupees on
this side, on the other side, you're getting hundreds and 1000s so it seems very attractive.
But what does Allah say? Allah has made certain things her arm.
So now you need patience to turn down that job offer. When you know that you're going to be involved in Iran directly or indirectly. It takes a lot of courage.
Because now everything is so bad that you know what
it's almost like you know, when you take the metaphor of drowning at sea, any piece of driftwood that floats away, you want to grab that it. So right now anything that comes my way, you know, we'll talk about our arm after the pandemic. But right now whatever comes my way, let me just grab it.
It's a test to see whether at this juncture you're you're holding on to patients and in a hammock to stay away from that which is harder to stay away from that which is haram for the youngsters, let's say the opposite gender, if you're talking in the context of Xena, just the youngsters, even for the older the uncles also you have the context of Xena, let's say there is an attractive lady in front of you the attractive opposite gender in front of you. And the setting is perfect. No one knows. No one can see everything is hidden hush hush you can get away with it.
But now a Sabra you hold on to patients to stay away from that which is haram to stay away from that which is haram for the foodies out there. There's this tasty delicious dish in front of you. And you're so hungry and you want to taste it but then you think is it allowed around a sublime aroma to stay away from that it is haram and as you can see it goes into every aspect of our lives.
And then you have a southern Allah, Allah invite you back patients when it comes to performing your obligations
with regards to your Salah with regards to your fasting with regards to your Sokka with regards to hygiene, hombre,
you need patience to fulfill the commandments of Allah subhana wa tada let's say waking up for budget, waking up with 100 passing the mantra Baba giving out Zakah from your heart and wealth from your money giving sadaqa reading the four R's you need patience to fulfill the commandments of among the last one because about to conclude our sobre la Masai
patients when it comes to trials difficulties and challenges, my dear brothers in Islam today it's this tomorrow it will be another thing
but the believers attitude should not change Saba hold on to patients. Hold on to patience and you're being rewarded every step of the way. Beautiful every step of the way. You're being rewarded so much the extent the professionalism tells us even a THON clicking a believer, even a thought.
I mean, compare that to the inconvenience that you are in right now. Or let's say if it's a terminal illness or terminal sickness of a phobic. There's a lot of a lot of pain, a lot of difficulty, even atone you're being rewarded. So every step of the way, you're being rewarded. As long as you hold on to patients you're not going to be in the masala in the southern pool as the proper analysis. At the very beginning, you have to hold on to patience. You can't grumble you can't complain you can't wait for now there are many of us waging war with God.
Oh, I hate God. I hate life. Why is life so unfair? Why is God doing this to me? Why is God doing this to us? I don't believe in God. Allah forbid. These are statements blasphemous ones that should not come out from our mouths. law in in de la la our upwards illa Billah. hacer una Allah, Allah is enough for us. There's no poverty.
Except for Mama. So my dear brothers in Islam as we conclude, let us remind ourselves, to hold on to patients to work on our faith and to constantly keep turning to align to today's a Friday. Don't forget what is special and powerful day this is and please don't forget that it is the job of the hour during the show was answered by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as per the opinions of most of the scholars, it is one hour before approximately one hour before the last hour of the day of Friday sees that hour to make the law there's so much for us to make to ask ourselves, our families our community for our country for our fellow citizens. Make Dora MC two alpha safety MC two alpha
security MC two alpha good health, wealth, prosperity make the alpha a man for faith, for steadfastness, for truthfulness, for positivity make to army don't just make life for materialistic things make to offer the things that are really important. And don't forget to send excessive blessings and salutations upon Muhammad, Salah Bob Marley SLM it's a Friday. So send blessings and salutations, I presume most of you might have read sort of have, supply and do the other deeds as well allocate a
chunk of charity that you give out on Friday. These are deeds.
Many brothers in Islam, you will reap the rewards. I mean, you you might in a way undermine them. But they're powerful deeds, powerful deeds. Just imagine from a worldly perspective, if some financial institution, some financial institution,
okay, if they were to tell you every Friday,
at a certain hour
5pm if you deposit 1000 rupees, we will do something something.
And by next week or after a period of time, you're going to get it 10 times multiply 100 times multiply. Ah, you and I, and what we do to make it for that 5pm we would set reminder upon reminder to ensure that we deposit that money that 1000 rupees at 5pm. Why? Because it's a burning incentive. We can see Oh, they're going to give us this much this much this much. But here you have
and most of the time and they give these crazy because you know what happens? You can kiss your money, goodbye.
But the prophets Allah while he while he was good, he lied, would he lie? Would Allah subhana wa Taala die woman as the fermina Latina who is more truthful than Allah, Allah and His messenger. They're promising What a powerful data says that you're seated in. What a powerful our socket is to Java is how many rewards you stand to accrue by sending blessings and salutations upon the offer. If you want ease in your life, send blessings and certifications upon the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We want prosperity if you want all of the good things that you want. Send blessings and salutations upon him make don't get closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala that is more long lasting media, not Islam. Satan, the devil will come and try to you know, misguide you, but don't fall prey to his traps. May Allah subhanho Medina, protect us from the traps of shape and
since we conclude, we pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives us of our sins. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala takes us back to normalcy soon. We pray that Allah subhana wa Jalla opens the doors of the massages completely once again. We pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala invites us back to his house in Makkah on the ombre and unhides very deprived My dear brothers in Islam should make our hearts break.
