all praise and thanks be to Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala who is our Creator sustain and nourish protector and cura made the choices of his blessings and salutations be upon our beloved Master 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 AMA.

00:02:02--> 00:02:28

Our slaves of Allah first and foremost I admonish myself and then all of y'all who are present here to adopt a life of taqwa. And that is to adopt the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala the consciousness of a lawsuit behind them with Allah during every single second of our lives, if we wish to attain success in this world, as well as the hereafter. May Allah the Almighty make us all from the people of Nepal.

00:02:29--> 00:02:52

My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam. Indeed, we live in troubled times. If we were to take it at a global level, the Muslim Ummah at large is being battered from all four corners. If we were to take it at a personal level, each one of us we are going through different hardships, different trials and calamities that have been afflicted upon us.

00:02:53--> 00:03:19

And it is natural that when we are going through these hardships and calamities, that we get swept away by the affliction of the moment, and then we start questioning the fairness behind the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The fairness behind the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala we start playing a blame game where we start blaming everyone who is around us.

00:03:21--> 00:03:34

But on the other hand, if we were to look at the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala, it is exactly opposite to what we think Allah the Almighty, He says in the novel called iron, one saw that

00:03:40--> 00:03:41

ad,

00:03:42--> 00:03:46

firm de la casa de como de

00:03:51--> 00:04:18

la Saba Kumi masiva there is not a trial or an affliction the calamity that has befallen upon your Furby Marchesa, but it can, except that it is through your own hands, whatever you put forward, your deeds have brought upon your this affliction. This trial, this calamity, who is one cafe, and Allah subhanho wa Taala forgives in excess.

00:04:19--> 00:04:59

So like I said, My dear respected elders and brothers in Islam, even if you were to scale it down to a personal level, perhaps diseases, sicknesses, trials, whatever we go through, we need to understand that it is from the wisdom of a lost behind a dialer, that he is putting us through that particular test. And it is not upon us to start questioning the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala or the wisdom of Allah behind the dialer, or to say that, why am I being afflicted as such? I pray so much I turn to Allah behind them who Adela I am not sinning. Why am I being afflicted like this? or Why is my family being a

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

fleeted like this, it does not always work that this is that this calamity or trial is because of your sins nay at times it can be to raise your rents in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. At times the trial can be to polish you to the better to give you more rewards by Allah subhanho wa Taala. For naturally, the toughest of battles is given to the strongest of soldiers. The toughest of battles is given by Allah subhanho wa Taala to the most beloved of his soldiers. So in today's short kotova let us try and touch on a few solutions that we can stay firm on to these solutions have been taught to us by the Koran and the authentic sooner of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:05:50--> 00:06:33

solutions that we can hold on to firmly during troubled times. Number one, we need to start by reviving and rejuvenating our faith. Because the minute the levels of faith start decreasing, that is when we start questioning the wisdom of Allah Subhana Hua dialer, that is when we start questioning the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala the decree of Allah subhana wa Taala Allah so it is upon us to start reviving our Eman, reviving our Eman And the best way to do that would be to ponder on the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala to ponder on the Quran the words of our powerful maker Allah the Almighty Saison the Nobel for an

00:06:38--> 00:06:39

kulu been

00:06:42--> 00:07:20

a fellow at the burner foreign Do they not ponder on the words of Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Quran, Allah Allahu Lubin aka Fallujah, or have they got locked on their hearts. So it is upon us to ponder on the Quran not just recite it like a parrot, but rather to think of how great these verses are the words of Allah behind them who are diala for the more we ponder the more Eman becomes strong, the more it becomes strong, the more we think about the words of Allah Subhana Allah look at this ayah Allah behind him who are Dinah he says he saw como la

00:07:22--> 00:07:25

de Bella, was he

00:07:36--> 00:07:36

can

00:07:41--> 00:08:27

he answer Kumu hula hula volley back for liberalism. If Allah behind them who a dialer helps you. If Allah Subhana Medina helps you none can overpower you, none can overcome you who he is. And if Allah the Almighty word to forsake you may Allah subhanho wa Taala save us all for Mandela V and Sudoku min Daddy, then who can save you after that? If Allah subhanho wa Taala were to forsake us there would be no one to save a small loss behind him but Allah save us from that who I don't know he failure to walk Kalamata walk alone, and upon Allah, let the ones who have trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala keep their trust in us behind the word Allah.

00:08:28--> 00:09:15

In another narration, which is recorded in Muslim Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, was talking about a strong believer and a weak believer and Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that the strong believer is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala than the weak believer, even though both of them are good, the strong believer is more beloved to Allah subhanho wa Taala, my beloved chef, Mr. Ashima Hola. He explains that particular narration because the Hadith goes along the lines of these words, were Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam also said do not lose hope. Do not lose hope. For the minute our levels of Eman start

00:09:15--> 00:09:45

dropping, we become helpless, we lose hope. And that's when all of the confusion start. We start blaming the external elements that are causing the problem problems perhaps. But in reality, we need to be questioning our own selves and gauging our actions because it is through our actions that these trials and calamities have come about. So by reviving our faith and our Eman what happens is the belief in other strengthens.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

And this is one of the articles of faith in the hadith of gibreel. De Souza he said a long while he was Selim teaches us that it is from a man to believe in Allah and took me Nabila, he was Allah He Kathy wakatobi. He Rossellini vayama

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

Here

00:10:02--> 00:10:29

it is upon us to believe in the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala that good and evil is from it. So we have to believe in that. So whatever is happening is from the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So the more we revive our Eman, the more we strengthen our eemaan. We will wholeheartedly accept the decree of Allah Subhana Allah, Allah the Almighty says the Nobel for an MA

00:10:30--> 00:10:35

mostly by fill out the fee

00:10:36--> 00:10:42

for seeking in Luffy kita in Luffy kita

00:10:49--> 00:11:40

masaba me mercy but in fill up there is not a calamity or an affliction that has been placed on this earth whereas he unfit and forsaken or even in your own personal lives in fi kita except that it has been written, it is already been decreed by Allah subhanho wa Taala it has been declared long time back by Allah subhanho wa Taala min calmly and number Aha. It was written before we brought about that calamity before we brought about the affliction. It is in the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala and it is upon us to wholeheartedly accept the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. The next solution, many respected elders and brothers in Islam is to turn to the most powerful of weapons and that is

00:11:41--> 00:12:29

many of us have lost the value of da da is basically to converse with Allah subhanho wa Taala This is a blessing that has been blessed upon this oma the Omar Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam it is upon us to turn to Allah behind the word Allah and seek His help during troubled times. We need to ask an out of a particular situation or particular hardship that we are in we need to turn to Allah subhanahu wa taala and seek his help. The pseudo law he said a long while he was sending me as reported to have said that the invocation that the DA have one of you is granted by Allah subhana wa Taala. It is either granted in this world or in the era it is inevitably granted by Allah subhanho

00:12:29--> 00:12:31

wa Taala. But

00:12:32--> 00:13:10

all except for the person who impatiently saved the Hadith goes along the lines of these words, who impatiently says I prayed this much to Allah subhana wa Taala but why has amassed behind a dialer not answered my door? The minute we question that or do I will not be answered by Allah behind the dialer. It is upon us it is incumbent to persevere. It is upon us to be consistent in our doors to Allah subhanho wa Taala for in editable, if we are asking for something that is something that is Allah, Allah the Almighty will inevitably answer to us.

00:13:11--> 00:13:58

The next solution may be respected elders and brothers in Islam is to be patient in the face of adversity. It is to be patient to have Sabah look at the story of use of alayhi salatu was Salam. After all of the difficulties, he went through all of the hardships, he was thrown into a well, he was taken to a foreign land, he was sold as a slave. He was working under someone and the woman of that household tried to seduce him, and then he was imprisoned for so many years. For so many years, even after sending the message outside. Still, the message did not go out. There's no time to discuss the story, but he was imprisoned for a long time, after which a lost behind a dialer blessed

00:13:58--> 00:14:29

him with a kingdom Allahu Akbar. And then now the people who are responsible for throwing him into the well. They come to his kingdom, asking for provisions due to the for mine they were suffering from and at that time they recognize the long story cut short, they recognize Yusuf alayhi salatu was salam, their own brother who they dumped into a well and then they start asking him questions. Allah subhanahu wa taala mentions it in the noble for an Koran Oh,

00:14:32--> 00:14:32

yo.

00:14:34--> 00:14:34

Yo.

00:14:37--> 00:14:38

P Kadima

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

in

00:14:57--> 00:14:57

the

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

mazzini

00:15:02--> 00:15:51

They asked us for allergy Salatu was Salam. ala anta Yusuf. Now he's the king. He's the king. They asked him are you use if they can't believe their eyes? Are you use of color and the use of the acid? Yes indeed I'm used to and this is my brother Haldeman Allahu Idina. Indeed a lost behind them what Allah has blessed us in who may yet have the warrior spirit for in Allahu Allah you do not need as for the one who fears Allah behind them what Allah who is conscious of Allah subhanho wa Taala? Well, yes bill, and for the one who is patient, he was a prophet alayhi salatu was Salam. He went through all of those hardships, he could have easily raised his hands up to Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:15:51--> 00:16:25

and he could have easily complained to Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and your Prophet, why are you putting me through all of this hardship? But the name we never see any of those doors that he turned to us behind a hotel and started complaining to Allah subhana wa Tada. Rather, he faced the hardship with patience. And then he says in the roommate that he was there, as for the one who fears are lost behind him $1 and he's conscious of a loss behind him who a diner warrior spirit and as for the one who is patient, for in Allahu Allah you do,

00:16:26--> 00:17:04

indeed a lost behind them who attalla will never ever lead the good deeds or the rewards of the good deeds of the good doers go in vain or go in waste mailbox, the Highland Medina river all of us and finally media respected elders and brothers in Islam. It is upon us to remember a loss behind and hautala and be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala during good times and in prosperity. Look at the story of you know Salah who salat wa salam, O Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Now after the fish swallowed Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. Salam, ala

00:17:06--> 00:18:06

Mousavi, me, Eunice AlLahi Salatu was Salam. He was of those who used to glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if he were not from those who used to glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala La La visa surfy bajo de la yummy Yoda and foo and if you are not of those who used to glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala, we would have let him remain in the stomach of that fish until the day of Hamas behind him who Allah brought him out because he used to be of those who use to glorify Allah subhanho wa Taala during good times and in prosperity, so it is upon us to to be patient in the face of adversity and to remember and tank Allah subhanho wa Taala during good times, finally, I kept off the hook but

00:18:06--> 00:18:56

with this ayah that I decided in the beginning, it is upon all of us to remember that are lost behind and what Allah He says poulain you see by now in La Casa de la Molina, oh Mohammed Salah long while he was Selim informed them I he informed us the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam lane you see Bella in Cata Bella Luna, that y'all will never or they will never ever be afflicted with any affliction triune or calamity in Qatar belong Milena except for except that which allows behind and what Allah has decreed or written upon us. We will never be afflicted by anything. We will never go through any hardship unless Allah subhanho wa Taala has already decreed it for us who

00:18:56--> 00:19:40

are Maulana He is our protector. Allah subhanho wa Taala is our protector where I don't lie he fell yet what can you tell me known and upon Allah behind and who Adana the believers should place trust in Allah Akbar. So May Allah subhanahu wa taala is all of our hardships is all the hardships that the Muslim Ummah is facing at large and alleviate the sufferings, the grief the problems that each one of us is facing in our personal lives. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala gives you fire to those who are sick and may have lost behind them what Allah forgive all of our sins, and May he accept our good deeds, and may He unite us in the gardens of Jenna with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu

00:19:40--> 00:19:46

alayhi wa sallam just as how he united us here this afternoon will after the hour and in hamdulillah behind me
