as always, we begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala who is no doubt our Creator sustainer nareesha protector and cure, we asked him the almighty to shower his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa ala he was seldom 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, first and foremost I advise myself I enjoy and upon myself and then all of you all present here to adopt a life of the poor, and that is to be conscious of your make during every single second of your lives. If you wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter May Allah subhanahu wa tada make us all from the people of taqwa. And may He make us from the victorious and successful ones. I mean,
we believe in six articles of faith and a man and mean that we land you on whether he can see he recruits will be He will surely he will Yeoman, or below Qatari higher Eva Rahim Allah. Eamon is to believe in a long woman that he could see he to believe in his angels were called to be he to believe in the divine scriptures that was sent down but Allah subhana wa Jalla was really to believe in the messengers of Allah, all of the messengers of Allah, when you will ask him to believe in the last day, the day of them, and finally to believe in order
to believe in destiny, that good and bad is from Allah subhana wa tada in terms of believing in each other. We have a hadith
where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have taught us that 50,000 years probably the Hulk SMRT went out 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. I'm not talking about 50,000 years. From this point, no 50,000 years, probably healthy some hour to an hour before the creation of the heavens and the earth. Allah subhanho wa Jalla decreed every single thing that is to occur on the face of this earth until the day of every single thing.
The pen was the first thing that Allah subhanho Medina created and Eliza Virgil commanded the pen to write the pen asks Allah subhanho wa Taala What am I to write, and Allah is the visual commands the pen to write every single occurrence, every single event until the day of piano. The pens have been lifted with Jeff at his sofa and the pages are dry. Everything has been sealed and decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. The fact that you and I, on the second of June 2017. were seated here in this particular Masjid at 1225. This was decreed by Allah 50,000 years before the creation of the heavens and the earth. The fact that I'm wearing white you're wearing white, the fact that you're seated in
a particular posture, the fact that I chose to touch on this topic, the fact that the lights are on the fact that the weather is like this, everything in detail, my new detail was decreed by Allah subhanho wa sallam.
And this belief it empowers a believer it empowers a believer. When a believer knows that every single occurrence in my life around me Everything is happening as further
the will and the decree of my maker subhanho wa Taala. It empowers a believer. Now we have to have the correct understanding in terms of color. There were many a group that went astray, debating and trying to fathom or completely understand further and this is why my beloved teacher, Mr. Mr akima, hula is reported to have said that in terms of other it is a vast ocean, a deep ocean.
It shows are not visible, it shows are not visible and the only way that one can think of traversing across this ocean is upon the ship of salvation, ie the Quran and the Sunnah of Mohammed salvaterra beaver Salaam Wylie, there's no other way that you can think of traversing this ocean because other is something to do with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So like I said, many a group went astray we have two famous groups known as Kataria and jabariya. They went astray one group, they deemed Qatar in such a way where they believe that we are all puppets in a game, our strings are being pulled by Allah subhanho wa Taala. So whether you do good or even if Allah subhanho China's Will you don't
have a free will in this? In the sense if someone were to do a sin, that individual cannot be blamed because that individual would say it is the will of Allah that pushed me to do this sin you can't hold me accountable. They went astray. Another group, they took free free will and free choice to another level where they completely removed Allah subhanho wa Taala from the equation. They believed that if you were to come to a crossroad in terms of making decisions, you can choose path a you can choose path B until you make the choice. Allah is not aware of your choice of Hanauma can Allah be Allah Aleem can allow me and Hakeem if he will not to know about your choices? Impossible.
So the people of the Sunnah and the correct understanding they take a moderate stance and they are right in between there in the middle.
We believe that everything has been decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala. But likewise, Allah has given us freewill, the choice to choose between what is right and what is wrong, that is our choice. And we have to live with the choices that we make, depending on the choices that you make your destiny shapes itself, but in terms of your choices, Allah is aware of your choices because nothing is hidden from Allah subhana wa Jalla. This is the correct understanding in terms of color. So everything around you has been decreed by Allah as Richard if
and why I chose to touch on this topic is because at times as believers when we go through trials, when we go through challenges, when we go through calamities when we go through tragedies when we go through difficulties, we tend to question the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
We tend to question the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala but that should never ever be the case in regard to a belief in a believer trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala a believer knows that Allah knows what is best
for him or her and that believer places his or her trust completely in Allah subhanho wa Taala I will make a he states in the Noble Quran

Well Beshear is sobbing and give glad tidings and to the ones who hold on to solder give glad tidings to the ones who hold on to patience and levena either a saw but whom masiva the ones when they are afflicted with trials with calamities with difficulties with tragedies, what do they do? Call
He was in, in a rock.
They say to Allah we belong and to Him, we return to Our
We belong, and to Him we return. There's a beautiful story.
There used to be a famous Companion of the Prophet sallallahu alaihe when he was a famous companion, this is to me authentic. It's a beautiful story.
His name was Abdullah, even Abdullah acid, Al masumi wrote
a famous companion, a companion who loved the Prophet sallallahu Sallam dearly a companion who sacrificed a lot for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he was from the first houses to migrate for the sake of Allah from the first families to migrate for the sake of Allah. Abdullah even Abdel Asad l massumi. rhodiola. One, this companion participates in the Battle of better.
And as you all know, the Battle of better was an astounding victory for the Muslim moon.
And he participates in the Battle of Oxford as well. And in the Battle of offered, he was injured, he was injured and this wound it healed. But after a period of time, it opened up again and started to fester. And his condition became very serious. and due to that particular wound, he passes away without the alarm wine.
Now his wife, him, beans, a B major the alarm wine.
him been at the Omega rhodiola when she his heart broken.
She is in so much of anguish, she's lost her husband, and this female companion, my dear brothers in Islam is more famously known as oma Salah Marathi, a long line
almost a llama for the long run. So who was her husband? He was none other than Abu Salah for the alumni. The cornea basically Abu Salah man.
For those of you who already might be aware on masala Mara Viola marinha later on becomes from Omaha, meaning the wives of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but at this juncture she's heartbroken that she's lost her husband. She's in so much of anguish and grief, the sort of one he said a long while he hears about her loss and he goes to her and he informs her your own selama
you should read in the law he was in Malaysia Roger your own journey v mercy Betty was lovely hire Amina
in LA he was in La Jolla Raji rune, Allah who journey Fimo see but he was lovely hi Ron minha to Allah we belong and to Him we return or Allah reward me in this calamity of mine in this tragedy of mine and replace that which I have lost with something that is better. Now these are the words of the prophets Atlantis and a man no sooner he educated her she starts to read but then she makes mentioned in that narration whenever I would come to the point was roughly higher Amina my mind would question there would be this voice inside me saying but who is better than Abu Salah replace that which I have lost with something that is better, but what can be replaced with Abu Salah there
is no one better than Abu Salah. At that point she was in so much of anguish. Her entire world had become narrow dark and lonely she misses her husband was lovely hire Amina replace that which I have lost with something that is better. Now what happens she stays her reader and the reader comes to an end. Who is the first person to send a proposal? Abu Bakr Missa de karate along one yeah, almost Salama, I wish to marry you.
Almost Santa Maria one one Ha. She receives the proposal from whom Abu Bakr Siddiq Rama one for that. And she turns down the proposal. Now before I go on, Think for a moment, Abu Bakr, Siddiq rhodiola one best of the companions even at this point if she had accepted his proposal, how do I is answered because obviously he's better than Abu Salah. He's better than Abu Salah because he is the greatest of companions, but she turns down the proposal. Who is the next person to propose? Amara? Amara?
Amara, the one who sends the second proposal. Yeah. Oh, Mr. Lama, I wish to get married to you. Alma Santa Marta de la Juana. farofa. She turns down this proposal as well.
Now the third proposal.
Mohammed Salatu was Salam.
sutala he said a long winding radio seldom sends the third proposal asking for her hand in marriage. Yeah, almost dilemma. I wish to get married to you. She does not turn down the proposal. She accepts the proposal of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam and then she realizes her da began said but Allah subhanho wa Taala newly hired Amina replace that which I have lost with something that is better now she is from Omaha, meaning our mother masala Maria bar
had a wife of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. But at that juncture when she lost her husband, it was a tragedy It was a calamity It was difficult for her to fathom. Likewise, if you are put through a trial, if you are put through a challenge if you are put through a difficulty, you're grappling with one pixel of the picture with one pixel of the picture. Nowadays, we have 4k pictures. We have 8k pictures as well. 1000 pixels. And you know, your life is obviously a picture that consists of so many more pixels and you're grappling with one tiny pixel, whilst Allah the Almighty has access to all of those pixels. He knows what is best for your husband Allah, why are
men working? Nirmal Mola whenever manasi.
You know, interestingly, use of Allah salatu salam
towards the end of his story. As you all know, if you if we were to go through a time lapse of his story, it starts off with him being thrown into a well, from the well he is sold as a slave in a foreign land, from Palestine to Egypt Miss and then he's purchased by a minister, the wife of the minister tries to seduce him, he is innocent, but he's thrown into prison unjustly filibuster VCG builder icynene he remains in prison for so many years and after that,
after all of these ordeals, what happens? He is released and now he is appointed as a governor, ruler of missile. He is united with his family again. And at that point Allah mentions in the Quran the Statement of Use of Allah Salaam, he says in Rabi Latif, only Manisha that indeed, my lord is a Latif. Now this is why it's so important for us to study the names and attributes of a loss of Hannah Montana. You know, a lot of being lucky if this attribute. Latif being lucky if the look of of Allah subhanho wa Taala is that Allah decrees goodness for you, Allah decrease goodness for you. Now listen to me attentively. Allah decrees, goodness for you, through ways that you dislike Subhana
Allah decrees, goodness for you through ways that you dislike, at times, you're wondering, why is this happening in my life? Why am I going through this financial loss? Why so many trials? Why so many challenges? Why am I sick? Why am I this? Why am I that? But it's because perhaps Allah has decreed goodness for you. As long as you don't question the decree of Allah. As long as you hold on to patience, you're going to be rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala. Once also Allah He said, Allah, Allah when he was with his companions, and then suddenly he smiles broadly, a lot more. The Companions, they asked him Allah sort of law, what is making you smile? And then also lysyl Allison,
if he says, I genuinely mean, how strange how amazing are the affairs of a believer, if he goes through good times, he renders sugar and Allah subhanho wa Taala is grateful unto Allah and that is good for him. If he goes through turbulence, if he goes through a patch of trouble in his life, then he holds on to patience, and that is also good for him. How amazing are the affairs of a believer?
My dear brothers in Islam, everything that Allah has decreed for you is because of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Even a thorn pricking you even atone, pricking you is a means for Allah to forgive you of your sins is a means for Allah to polish you to the better is a means for Allah to raise your ranks in this world as well as the hereafter. Once the professor Allison visits a companion, who was terribly ill, severe fever, he goes in and as he goes in, he says, Sure, glad tidings be unto you. Now you might think of this to be a strange statement, going into visit someone sick and saying glad tidings be unto you. But then the Prophet Allah Islam educates him that fever
according to one particular Hadith Buddha says from the fire of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it is a means for Allah to purifying you it is as if you are being put through a furnace.
When you make gold.
Those of you those of you who do deal in gold, you will, you know, relate what I'm saying, you have to put it through a furnace and the furnace melts away all of the impurities, so you need to be put through this furnace to be forgiven of your sins. Because you and I and we are all perpetual sinners. I can be the hottie here. I can be the man here but I'm a sinner as well. We are all sinners, and that's why I like the Adeboye it says we all like the moon. We all like the moon Now you might think Mashallah, that's a compliment. But in reality, we are like the moon You know why? Because we all have a dark side like the moon has a dark side. We all have a dark side.
So we need to constantly keep turning to Allah Subhana. Allah is the most forgiving, it is out of the sheer Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that you and I, we are going to enter general but Allah, we are going to enter gender not through our deeds is a famous Hadith that has been recorded in the book of Imam Bukhari in a moment.
Muslim Rahim Allah, our mother eyeshadow. Yamanashi makes mention of the Hadith.
Also my son Allison amongst his companions and he said said they do work or Abu Abu Shirou for in Houma lane you the healer jen netta I had an Imam
Sadie do Bukhari Boo. Boo he tells them to fervently do good deeds to be united. And then he says, glad tidings be unto you. For inaho Lane you the filler ginetta I had an AMA do none of you will ever entered through your good deeds of law, through your good deeds you will never enter Jannah the companions never surprised the minute the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said this they were surprised and they immediately asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam Wallah anti rasulillah What about you Oh messenger of Allah. What about you? And as soon as Allah Islam clarify is saying while Anna in a llama Danielle la mina will be
not even me. unless Allah envelops me with his mercy of law.
Even I won't be able to enter agenda to my good deeds, unless Allah decides to enter me into Jenna through His mercy.
So it's through the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala that we can secure agenda.
Once the profits at a long while he rarely was lm
he was with his companions.
And suddenly, they observe a mother.
A mother frantically looking for her child, she had lost her child, and she was searching for her child.
And then suddenly, she finds her child. She runs to the child, she hugs the child and you can see a relief washing down her face. Abu Bakr Anissa Decker the loved one who was generally a very emotional individual, he starts to weep at the spectacle and also realize that alone while he was lm he made it looks at his companions and he asked them are my companions
Do you think that this mother would ever throw her child into a blazing fire?
The Companions look at the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and say Yasuda law she would never ever throw her child into a blazing Fine.
Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam goes on to say, Allah is much more merciful than this mother is towards her child.
Just think on the day of the AMA, vanilla Hill method with a rise above all these examples. But if Allah was to give you your book of D, sorry, if your mother were to give you your Book of Records on the day of
how confident you would be thinking that, oh, it's my mother, she's going to be kind she's going to be merciful unto me. But as believers we need to be even more confident we need to believe even more firmly and have walked in the mercy of Allah because Allah is much more merciful than our own mothers.
Much more was the Hadith Ramos if I'm not mistaken in the book of Imam Muslim Rahim Allah
salmaan and faricy rhodiola one who makes mention of the narration
there have been a lot created the heavens and the earth. A lot created the narration goes along the lines of these words 100 portions 100 shares of Rama
100 shares of Rama of mercy and 100 of it one share was sent to this world and it is true that share
that we human beings we care for one another. We love one another. It is through this one share that a mother loves her children. A father loves his children that spouses love one another. That family you know relatives love one another that animals love one another and care for one another. It is true this one share that this entire world is running and the remainder 99 shares Allah has reserved it for him to treat the believers on the Day of Prayer.
Think about how mercy for Allah subhanho wa Taala
Abdullah he been Mr. Rudra de la one makes mention of a narration
but the last individual to enter
this individual the narration goes along the lines of these words, this individual
he will cross the Surat the bridge and he will falter. He will stumble. He will almost fall and at certain junctures the flames will leave at him because Johanna is a scary spectacle. On the day of the AMA Johanna will be brought 70,000 bridles each bridal each chain will be pulled by 70,000 angels it will be a roaring
fury and anger. This is Jana helmy mezzi they will keep asking Allah subhana wa Taala put more people into me put more people into me, this john Nam, the flames will leap at this man, who is this man, the last person to enter gender.
He doesn't know that he's entering gender. He's crossing the Surat, and the fire leaps at him and it almost burns him and he escapes. And he tanks Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he thinks to himself, that I have been blessed in such a way that no one has been blessed the way I have been blessed because I, I saved myself from Johanna Allah, the last person to enter gentleman.
And now what happens, he crosses. And then suddenly he sees this beautiful tree, not just any ordinary tree, a tree that was planted by a law,
a tree from the trees of Jenna, each tree rider would have to ride on a fast horse for 100 years just to cover the shade of one tree in general.
He sees this tree and he prays unto Allah Subhana Allah, how I wish I could go by that tree, it's so hot, I want to rest under the shade of the tree. And I want to quench my thirst through the water that is running beneath the tree beneath the tree. And he prays unto Allah.
Allah then addresses this slave or my slave. Perhaps, if I were to grant this wish of yours, you will ask me something else later on. To which the slave will immediately try out your Allah, I will not ask you anything else, I promise, I just want to go by that tree.
Allah will answer the door of this individual, and this individual will go and fall by that tree, he will rest he will quench his thirst. And then suddenly he will spot another tree which looks so much more beautiful. So much more grander. And then again, he prays into a law or law, how I wish I could go by that tree, then Allah will address the slave woman slave, you promised me that you will not ask me anything earlier and I granted your wish. And here you are. Now you want to go by this tree.
And then again, the slave will say y'all I promise I will not ask you anything. I just want to go by this tree. And then Allah will answer his da and he'll make his way to that tree.
And then he spots that tree which looks so much more beautiful. And he notices that that tree is by the board of Jenna with the board of paradise. He prays unto Allah Allah, could I go by that tree? And again, Allah will address the slave or my slave? Did you not promise me that you will not ask me of anything and here you are. Now you want to go by this tree.
And then Allah will answer the door of this individual and he will make himself He will make his way by the third tree. And as he falls by the third tree, he sees the above bridge and the gates of Jenna and he can hear the dwellers of Jenna the inmates of Jenna. And then he prays unto Allah. Allah admitted me into Gemini, Allah have come so far, admit me into Jenna. And then Allah will look at the slave and say, Oh, my slave, you promised me that you will not ask me anything. Will you stop asking me if I were to give you an agenda that is equivalent to dunya and double it according to one narration, another narration if I were to give you an agenda, like that, which a king owns in this
world and 10 times at fiber to multiply its Panama
will have no words. He'll try out your Allah Are you making fun of me Allah because he just wanted to interject, Nan, Allah is giving him an agenda that is equivalent to dunya and double it the last person to enter Paradise, and the slave will cry or Allah you making fun of me Allah, are you making fun of me. And then at that juncture, even in my sorrow, there will be a long one who was making mention of the narration, he laughs and he smiles. And then he looks at his companions and he says, Oh, my companions, will you not ask me as to why I'm laughing? And I'm smiling. Then they all ask him your venomous rude Why are you laughing? Why are you smiling? And then he says, when the profits
and along while he when he was saying them was making mention of this narration he to laugh, and he too smiled. And we asked him jasola Why are you laughing? Why are you smiling? And then he told us that at this juncture, Allah the Almighty will laugh and allow you to smile. Come on, you need to be sharpening your Jelani in a manner that benefits His Majesty and His glory. And he will say Oh, my slave, I am not making fun of you. I am all powerful, and I'm able to do whatever I wish.

Indeed Allah forgives all sins even before you die. If you turn to Allah, Allah forgives you of your sins.
The Companions before the advent of Islam, what were they doing, some of them they were worshipping idols, but when Islam came, they turned over a new leaf, they turned back to Allah, Allah forgive them or the Allahu anhu.
And they became the best of human beings, the best of individuals, the companions of the Prophet sallallahu aleyhi when he was in favor of him, Indeed, Allah is the most forgiving, the Most Merciful.
So many respected elders and brothers in Islam, if you're going through trials, if you're going through challenges, if you're going through difficulties, if people have left you if you are all alone, don't think that the world is narrow. Don't think that the world is a dark and lonely place. Why? Because you have a law by you a law, the light of the heavens and the earth. You have a love with you and your path ahead of you is illuminated. As long as you place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala people chased every single Prophet, they drove away every single Prophet, they spoke bad against every single prophet. But these prophets stood strong because they had Allah by
their side. Likewise, you and I, we are all believers. We are ambassadors of Islam, ambassadors of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who Allah so don't ever waver, the world can gang up against you, they can gang up against Islam, but don't don't lose hope you have Allah by you. So place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala work hard, strive hard, and you will be successful in this world as well as the hereafter. I leave you all with giving you glad tidings, we are in an amazing month, a month like none other, the best of months.
And we are headed towards the best of nights May Allah subhanahu wa Jalla help us all to attain later through the night of power I mean,
so don't let these nights Don't let these days go in vain. Use every single minute that you have every single second that you have to do as many good deeds as possible. If you're finding it difficult to do good deeds, avoid sins, do good deeds as much as possible, but stay away from sins. I shared a post on Facebook a few minutes ago before jumaane Mujahid Rahim Allah He makes mentioned that two things will save the fasting of an individual staying away from backbiting and staying away from falsehood.
These two things will save the fasting of an individual. And there are other scholars who have said that if you can't do good deeds if you have when you're fasting, as long as you do what is in the sense of your prayers, and the reading of the Quran and all of that, go and sleep even if you're sleeping it is fine. But don't indulge. Don't use your tongue in a wrong way. Your tongues were not created by Allah as weapons to destroy others. Our tongues were not created by Allah as knives and weapons to destroy others. Make sure that you use your tongues make sure that you use your limbs make sure that you use whatever you've been given by Allah to secure goodness in this world as well
as the hereafter. May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to do so May Allah azza wa jal forgive us of our sins many accept our good deeds. And just as how unitrust here in this beautiful Masjid may unite us in the gardens of Jenna, and may unite us by the fountain by the house for us to be blessed to drink from the beautiful and blessed hands of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam while I am in Russia and in Hungary
