a bit in our Habib in our karate our unit, Abdullah
he was happy.
Steal my back.
We begin by praising Allah subhanho wa Taala with no doubt our Creator sustainer and Alicia protect and cure, we ask allies of agility shaba his choices on blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of.
So I mentioned yesterday, that today inshallah Allah will be starting the story of a great prophet, whose name is, you know, almost a synonym to patience. I mean, when we say patience, we remember this prophet alayhi salatu salam, and we meant when we mentioned this prophet, we remember patience, can someone guess the Prophet I mentioned the Prophet yesterday? Are you Balinese salatu salam.
So today inshallah, we're going to talk about the story of Elijah Salatu. Salam.
We mentioned a couple of sessions back that his heart and who was his heart
the son of Ibrahim it so that was that wasn't a sign of Brian Wallace does not name his smile.
Not his heart, his smile, right? So here are two signs. You mentioned two sons, his heart and his married. So it's my album salatu salam, he had two sons, as we mentioned, their names were is and yaku alayhi salatu salam, okay, is an yopu Balinese that was around two brothers, his smile and his heart, his heart and his love was like he had two sons is an yopu. Now who's yakou uncle's name?
is Elena Serato. Sarah is my
Ibrahim alayhi salatu was salam, you know, just trying to get the cabinetry in place. Yeah.
So it's hard to say I've had two sons, we mentioned arrays and iacob. And because there was a huge argument as dimensioned between the two, the mother of jacobellis, that was ram had jacobellis does not stay with his uncle, so we will not be going into that because I you, Alex, that person and he came through the lineage of race. He came through the lineage of rice
in the sense through the lineage of race, so he was from the lineage of various areas, who was the son of his heart was the son of Ibrahim alayhi salatu was set up.
Now in regard to iu Valentina to Surah, Allah azza wa jal blessed him immensely. Allah blessed him immensely. Allah blessed him with orchards Allah blessed him with wealth Allah blessed him with vegetation plots, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him with a loving wife and allies the region blessed him with children love Aqua, Allah subhana wa tada blessed him with 14 children. So he had a huge family had a lot of wealth, ample wealth, a loving wife and 14 children. He was blessed immensely by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And suddenly, Eliza Joe decided to test you, Alexandra Casa de la raza region decided to test you Alicia to set up as we go through the story even you might think
why did he have to go through so many trials, so many tests and this is something we have clarified even in the past, and that is that Allah subhanho data, he tests the ones he loves the most. As we have the narration of the prompts that are long while he was on the stage, who are the individuals most tested by Allah we mentioned this before. And ambia the prophets, Allah salatu salam, they are the ones who are the tested the most by Allah subhanho wa Taala then thermal emperical MSL and then the next best afterwards the next best. So based on this, we understand Allah Subhana Medina because of his sheer love for you, Allah insha Allah, He put we put him through a number of tests, all of
which are you balanced latos law passed with flying colors we shall discuss in Charlottetown. So like we mentioned, he was suddenly desperate Allah subhanho wa Taala he felt terribly ill suddenly he was a healthy person, healthy, strong individual. He suddenly fell. Ill that was one
Test, and we will discuss the illness graduating, it's worse by the day, he falls in, he loses his crops, he loses his vegetation plots, he loses his wealth, he loses almost everything. Some historians mentioned that there was a huge fire that destroyed all of his wealth, his houses because he had houses, he had crops he had, you know, vegetation plots, there was this huge fire that destroyed everything that you know, raised everything to the ground. So he lost all of his wealth. He lost all of his vegetation plots. He lost his crops, he lost everything, a lot of trouble. And then his sickness, it started to, you know, it was by the day, it was a skin condition. It was a
skin condition. And because it was so painful, and so unbearable, he became bedridden. He was almost paralyzed. He was almost paralyzed, and his skin started to crack and peel away because there were wounds all over the place. And the skin started to crack and peel as we had boys and ulcers all over his body, his skin now started to crack and peel, and there was this bad stench coming from the wounds. As you all know, sometimes when you have a room full of pass, there's a bad smell a bad odor that comes out. So all over his body, this bad smell started to come from his body and because of that people started to distance themselves. earlier. They were all close friends with him because he
was a rich individual. He was a rich individual. The minute he was tested by Allah Subhana mazara, the minute he fell sick, and because of this skin condition, people thought of it to be a contagious disease. They were scared that if they come in contact with him, they might also get the sickness. So they started to distance distance themselves from ru alayhi salatu salam.
Now what happens? Suddenly, one child after the other the children started to die for no reason at all. One child after the other, one child after the other until he lost all 14 of his children last look at the test. put yourselves in the shoes of IU ballets Lazzara. Sometimes we go through a small test, and then we immediately start to question Allah subhanho wa Taala we start to question the decree of Allah azza wa jal.
We say why, you know, why is life like this for me? Why does life you know, have to be like this? is Allah subhanho wa Taala hate me you start to question allows us to question the decree of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But look at these tests, not just any ordinary tests, Allahu Akbar, when a person is given wealth, and then taken away the understanding of how difficult it is division, he's got used to having the wealth, having the comfortable lifestyle, and now everything is being plucked away. But Allah subhanho wa Taala, Allahu Akbar, and the children, obviously, you and I, as parents, we love our children, we can't bear the thought of any harm coming upon our children. Just imagine,
just imagine to lose child after child, child after trying, for no reason at all, is losing child after child until he loses all 14 of his children. He loses all 14 of his children. Now his servants who used to be at his beck and call, they all leave him, the servants used to have ample amount of servants. They all left him, his employees left him and the only person next to him to be beside him was his wife, who was a very righteous lady, she stood by her husband. Because after all, that's what marriage is all about, is supposed to be with one another through thick and thin. And there are times when things are good and comfortable. 111 We are happy. But then even through during times of
difficulty, the two spouses mistake stay together supporting one another. So the wife of a Eubalaena that was around, she did not deserve it because she didn't get married. She didn't get married to him because of his wealth, because of all of what he had. No, she sincerely loved her husband. So she stood by him, and she supported him. She helped him the only person who was next to him was his wife, like we mentioned. And he was around he did not give up. And this is very important. When we look at the story of who Sam will come to an understanding throughout the story he never ever gave up above us. Well, he didn't think oh, I had all of this. Why is Allah subhanho wa Taala blocking
everything from me, my little children, all of my children are gone. No, he never gave up. He didn't despair. He was a patient individual. He took hold of patience and Hippo patients throughout the trials of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Now his wife, because they had no source of income, they lost all of their wealth. She started to work for others. As you know, a maid. She started to work for others, and she started to earn a little money, a little money. There are just a few here and there. And she used to feed her husband and herself with this money. Just imagine a lady coming from a noble family. They were wealthy and now
The circumstances I mean, poverty has pushed her to work as a maid a lot of Look around you, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, you see many stories, where you see people, from rags to riches as well as riches to rags. But throughout we must, as believers have this thing in perspective that everything is happening according to the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala according to the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala so you must never ever lose hope or believe and never ever loses hope. According to one Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam What does he say? Amazing are the affairs of a believer amazing or the affairs of a believer? Because if something good happens to
him, what does he do? He thanks Allah subhanho wa Taala for it if something good happens, he thanks Allah subhana wa Tada. And if it was fortunate for calamity were to strike him. He has patience throughout it luck, he's patient. So these are two very important elements sober and sugar, sugar and sub two very important elements for a believer almost akin to the wings of a bird. Just as how a bird needs two wings to fly fly. A believer needs these two elements to fly And to Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to hold on to sugar bear we read the gratitude of Allah subhanho wa Taala for the numerous bounties and favors that he has conferred upon us and we take hold of patience solver to go
through the trials calamities the test of Allah subhanho wa Taala puts us through what does he say in the normal for an overland Avenue
Obi Wan jewelry one apple.
Basheer is savini. Allah subhanho wa Taala he states oil and
Nikon definitely definitely we will test you all while an absolute Nikon. We will test your with what vishay
will test you with certain elements of fear. We will test you with hunger wanna consume enough
and we will test you with what loss of provision loss of wealth, one of the seminal and why well anfis and you will lose loved ones. You will lose loved ones dear ones, you might lose them. Many of us at times you lost our parents we lost our spouses, perhaps we have lost family members or children. Allah subhanho wa Taala you say we will test you with the loss of loved ones loss of lives. What are our food provision? Well, and then Allah subhanho wa Taala What does he say? After mentioning that we that he will test us What does he say?
He is glad tidings by Sherry saw Barry and give glad tidings to the ones who hold on to patience. So for a fact we know that we are bound to go through tests these things are inevitable. But is the last behind on one side I say?
Allah The Allah azza wa jal hyah Tanya,
I, you know, I'm Allah, Allah, Allah Allah. He is the one who has created mountain higher mounts and debts for what purpose? LEAH Bella welcome.
To test which one of you is best in deeds to test us. This is a huge test that we are going to. So none of us we are all going through trials. And this is why I say that each and every one of us. We are fighting our own battles, we are fighting our own battles, each and every one of us I'm sure if I were to ask on a personal note, for a show of hands, every one of us in the crowd, we're fighting our own battles, and this is why it is of utmost importance that we don't judge others. Sometimes you might look at an individual, he may be looking, you know, happy and he may be looking very you know, jovial at times you may be smiling, but then that individual you never know he might be fat
hiding so many batteries from within. So it is of utmost importance that we don't judge others because after all we human beings, the creation of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is only possible for us to judge a book by its cover. We don't know what's inside the individual's heart. We only judge something by its outward appearance. It is Allah subhanho wa Taala the best of judges who knows what is within the hearts of mankind It is only amongst humans and so we leave the judging part to him, let him be the best of judges because after all, he is the best of judges. We leave the judging to Allah subhanho wa Taala we purify our hearts and we maintain a good attitude towards one another. It
does not judge one another. It does not
judged by another at times now we see our brother our friends are made it to the masjid, we think, oh, Ramadan, the last 10 days of Ramadan? Why couldn't he make it to the masjid? Why couldn't he make it for them? Why Why? Why didn't I see him in the masjid? We are quick to judge the minute we make it to the masjid. We start to judge others but when we at home, we don't judge others. But when we make it to the must is when we start doing good deeds, we quickly start to judge others. This is a tactic that shaytan uses one of his ploys, the minute you make it to the message, he wants to contaminate your good deeds he wants to he wants to spoil your good deeds. So he quickly sets
judgmental thoughts into your heart so the minute you start judging others the minute you you know you meet your friend used to be you start backbiting now about the other friend you know this brother didn't make it to the mustard beer and the mustard Mashallah look at the night I think tonight is you know, later to father I think tonight is there the father, but you know it he didn't make it to the masjid. What's wrong with it? Why does he make it to the masjid? You start backbiting you start gossiping.
A cola laughs Murthy mamita. Will any one of you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother? Or be cannibals? With any one of you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother? Allah subhanho wa Taala he asked a direct question. Will anyone of you like to eat the flesh of your dead brother? In his Oh definitely, definitely will dislike it you will not like it at all. If you were to backbite about your brother, you are eating his flesh Allahu Akbar. You're eating his flesh. So that is avoid backbiting that does avoid judgmental thoughts desperately trying to think of others that does not judge others. This leave the judging part to Allah subhanho wa Taala it does maintain a positive,
unclean attitude towards others and Allah subhanho wa Taala help us to do so.
So are you ballin? salatu salam, like I mentioned his wife now she starts to work for others. And with the little money she used to earn she's she feeds her husband and she looks after herself. One day after, you know a long grueling period of you know working for others and earning money you know, after you know going through all these difficulties she asked her husband, my dear husband, you are a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala You are a prophet of Allah azza wa jal Why don't you pray to Allah subhana
wa Why don't we bring you a lot more data so that aligns the budget accuse you because you I profit a loving answer your ultimate answer your invocation. Just raise your hands and pray to Allah and Allah will kill you. Are you biting me? salatu salam very calmly, he replies, my dear wife.
How long did we live in prosperity?
How long did we live in prosperity? How long we live a very comfortable and happy life. She says we live for around 70 years because when he was afflicted with a sickness, are you balanced? That was when he was 17 years old. So she said with him for about 70 years for either you live for about 70 years. So then how you balance that to ceramic better to clarify my dear wife, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed me with a good and comfortable life that I lived for 17 years without any problem whatsoever. So I feel that I would be an ungrateful slave. If I were to quickly start to you know, complain and grumble and ask him to cure me, you know, within a short period of time, I think I need
to at least you know it won't be even a comparison if I don't go through these difficulties for another 70 years. Look at how patient he was. Are you valuable so that was that? So Allah Allah subhana wa Taala blessed me for 70 years, so I need to be a grateful slave. I can't go to him God grumbling and complaining, this is the will of Allah subhanho wa Taala the degree of alliance of virgin I need to accept it and go through it. This is a dryer This is a test from Allah Subhana Hosanna now this was his reply to his wife. So like I said, no one there to get close to him out of fear that the disease was contagious. And now the disease had gotten so worse that his skin now
started to feel and fall off in chunks his skin started to peel and fall off in chunks and this bad smell that started to emanate from the wounds on his body started to get you know started to worse by the day the smell was becoming the stench was unbearable. People started to chase them away. They used to live within the city because of this smell and they didn't want the they had the fear that the disease might spread. They chased a you Alexandra to celeb and his wife away to the outskirts of the city. Now one day he was sleeping by the outskirts no there was a like a rough shack that they had made a hot like a place and he was sleeping two of his brothers to have a you Valley is not
Muslim brothers came by where he was resting. Like I said he was
bedridden, he was almost paralyzed, he couldn't move by himself. Whatever he did, he used to do with the help of his wife. So he was arresting. And two of his brothers came by while he was sleeping. And they said this are talking to one another, you know, I said, We pity you. I think it's because of some big sin of is that Allah Subhana Medina is punishing him like this. This is the same mistake that you and I we do at times, we are very swift to judge once again, the minute we see someone going through a difficulty, the minute we see someone going through a certain at times, we are even, you know, quick to whitewash countries, you know, as just a general plastering at NVC, maybe Allah
forbid a natural disaster hit a particular country, we are good to say, you know, I think it's because of the ceilings, you know, the country the people over there they are, you know, a very, you know, corrupt nation, corrupt people that you come in all kinds of sins. That's why the anger of Allah subhanho wa Taala descended upon, I'll be prophets are we prophets to know whether it was the anger of Allah subhana wa Jalla, or a test from Allah subhanho wa Taala? What if they are, close people unto a loss behind them who is on and Allah is putting them through a trial to increase them in their ranks in gender, they are rising in terms of their ranks in China and we are falling in the
sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala because we are judging, beloved slaves of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So let us leave all these things to Allah some kind of words on that let's keep ourselves busy working on our own selves working working on our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala. So these two brothers, they say, you know, when I think one of them says, I think it's because, uh, you You must have committed some major sin. And that's why Allah subhanho wa Taala is putting him through this test. You believe. He hears this and he feels so sad to start rolling down his cheeks, and then he prays to Allah Subhana Allah, Allah, I asked you to be my witness. I asked you to be my witness
that I never ever have eaten alone. Whenever I eat, I call someone and I feed them whenever I eat.
Yeah, Allah I call you to be my witness that I I never had an extra pair of clothing at home, except that I would call someone a needy person, a destitute person and I would give that clothing to them. Yeah, Allah. I called you to be my witness, that whenever I had the opportunity of doing a good deed, I would hasten to add, I would never, you know, in today's modern day context, we have the universal problem of what procrastination, we don't hasten to do that which is good, whether it be in things related to Ashura or dunya. The worldly life we have given to this. Given into this universal problem of procrastination, we tend to delay things. This is a huge problem. When we look
at the sooner Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, as well as the Sahaba the MBR Serato. Sunday, never ever gave into procrastination. In terms of good deeds. You're supposed to compete with one another. You're supposed to compete with one another wasabi Kunal our balloon, we are supposed to compete with one another in terms of goodies not given to procrastination. So he says your ally never. You know, in today's life, like we would say today, procrastination. I never used to procrastinate. I never gave into procrastination, I would hasten to do good deeds. Now soon as he prayed to Allah subhanho wa Taala, these two brothers were outside there was suddenly a voice that
talking about a young Muslim confirming everything that Lazarus Lam said that he never used to eat alone, except that he would feed someone else. He never had an extra pair of clothing, except that he would close others, he would never delay in terms of good deeds, this voice called out and confirmed everything that I have said, and these two brothers, they were dumbfounded. They couldn't say anything. Because this was a sign America. You know, proving that I you Alexandra to Islam is an innocent individual. And this is a test that Allah subhana wa Jalla is putting him through to raise his ranks last October. So these individuals, they left him now after a few days.
Now what happened was behind the scenes, are you balanced, that person's wife was not getting any work? Because of the fact like I said, they chased them away from the city. And now they were even scared to come in contact with IU Valley's wife because they were scared that the disease might be contagious and they might catch the disease through her. So they stopped employing her now she had no work. And now for a couple of days, she didn't earn any money, and there was no way for her to get food to feed herself or her husband. It was a very desperate situation, a very desperate situation. She had no other choice and you know what she did?
According to the Sharia, this was permissible. She went she shaved her head. She got all her hair, because she had long beautiful hair. According to the historians, she got all her hair off and she sold her hair.
For a few that are here, for a few that hems, she sold her hair.
Now she was worried because she knew that her husband will not like it. She draped the show that she had around herself, tightly bounded around herself covering her head. And she makes her way home. She's bought some food and whatnot, and she makes her way home. She cooks the food, and she takes it by her husband. Are you buying a Serato? Sir, I'm bedridden paralyzed, he couldn't move.
And he hadn't eaten for a couple of days as well. She was very weak, frail. When she brings the food, he smells the food in the hot food. And when she brings it.
He asked me do it from where did you get this food? I mean, where did you get this food from? And he says, You know, I cooked it, I got some food. So where did you get the money to buy the food? Now I got some money. I did some work. And I got some money. And he looks at her and he noticed something different. So he says, No, tell me, tell me what happened. Tell me the truth. And he said in a very stern voice because he wanted to know. And he said, I won't eat until you tell me the truth. Until you disclose everything. She didn't lie. But he was saying I want you to disclose everything.
And she had no choice. She removed the shawl. She showed her husband, I you know, cut my hair and sold my hand to get some dirt on him.
A Eubalaena that was around. He couldn't then, you know, he could bear the fact that he was going through a test and he could bear it. But the minute he saw his wife in such a flight in such a condition, you know, bald headed, she had sold her hair, and it's not like you're going to get a steady source of income. In a few days. The money is going to run out and now what are you going to do? He was so heartbroken and so upset. He couldn't contain himself and he got so you know, upset. He said to her, why on earth would you do this? Why did you do this? And he was so upset. He said that I he you know, he just said this. I the minute I regained the minute I recover from this
sickness, I'm going to beat you 100 times because of what you did.
Because of what you did. He was so upset, and then he couldn't bear himself. He couldn't bear himself. He prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala he tries to Abbas pedagogia Allah and he plays he says there are a lot he raised his hands last minute Machad and allows the budget mentions this was called rabina you
name as any shavon who may know smooth.
He prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala was good
to you. And remember
you remember our slave Are you in
any shape on will be no sphere?
He says Allah shaitan has touched me with what distress Mr. Nia shavon will be no Smith. What are the enrollment? Look at the beauty of the way he's addressing Allah subhana wa tada once again, look, he didn't complain. Here in attribute this to Allah subhanho wa Taala instead he said this a shirt on Shiva was touched me with a sickness and he's putting me through this trial. And he's making me you know, lose my patience. He prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala. He didn't question Allah subhanho wa Taala. He didn't gamble or complain. He did not blame Allah Subhana Medina. Instead he blamed the devil, he blamed shaitaan and this many brothers and sisters in Islam, scholars of
history mention that this two hour was almost after some scholars say 15 Some scholars say 18 years Some even say after 20 years of going through this grueling period of sickness and difficulty only now he prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala only now, after making this dua, he had, you know, he used to he wanted to relieve himself and generally like I said, he couldn't do it by himself. He needed his wife's help to relieve himself. But that at that moment, his wife was not not not around because while she while she was making the dua she had left for, you know, to run an errand or something like that. She was not around, and he was in a lot of pain and anguish. Now he was in a lot of pain
and anguish, because everybody had left him and he was heartbroken. He was saddened that the plight of his wife as well. He keeps on praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala he keeps on praying to Allah subhanho wa Taala Why are you in
demo me. He plays with us behind Amazon or Allah Verily, distress has these mean sadness grief.
has seen me one time or rahimian You are the Most Merciful of the ones who show mercy he prays to Allah subhanho wa Taala and lo and behold, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands a human incident with sin and because why are you bothering to suddenly pass the test with flying colors many brothers and sisters in Islam 15 to 20 years Allahu Akbar have such a grueling sickness. So much of calamities trials, he had passed the tests of Allah with flying colors Alize original commands are you Balinese Muslim, he was commanded by Allah Subhana mozzarella or compare ej Lake Allah subhanho wa Taala commands in
Allah subhana wa tada commands him strike the ground are you or could be rigidly strike the ground with your foot, strike the ground with your foot. Hi,

As I move the salon, bury the washer up it is a cool spring of water for you to take a bath as well as drink from it. So just as he was commanded, he struck the ground with his foot and then a spring gush forth from the ground. It was cool quenching water that came out from the ground. He immediately as per the command of Allah subhana wa Jalla he took a bath he you know he took a bath or whatever it is and started to pour the water on his body. And the amazing miracle of Allah
subhanho wa Taala started to manifest. He was looking at his skin or wherever the water touched his skin. You know, the sickness completely went away, and his skin started to regain its usual color complexion. And he started he was blessed with rather it was even better than how he was before. Now his skin was glowing and so beautiful. I mean, just imagine he's almost 100 years old, is that the century now is almost 100 years old. So you can just imagine how 100 year old man's skin must have been, must have been wrinkled and old. And to top it off, he had the sickness as well. And we mentioned that his skin was falling off, you know from different places. So wherever the water
touched him, wherever water touched him, the skin started to regain his beautiful glowing complexion a lot of actual and he started to take the water and rub it everywhere because wherever water touched him, he was being cured by Allah subhanho wa Taala he started to drink the water and you know, inside all those, you know, sick feelings and things like that, that he was going through the sickness, everything started to vanish and he started to regain his health. He started to regain his health. And not only that, Allah subhanho wa Taala blessed him to become young again, to become young again. You know, it's like a fountain of youth. They have this fountain of youth and certain
books and stories.
It's a myth at the end of the day, let's not go hunting for it.
So he started to drink the water I started to regain his young vigor is strength and all of that was just amazed. He drinks Moe and Moe, he Bade he he pulls the water all over his body and he was completely cured but Allah subhanho wa Taala completely cured but Allah azza wa jal now what happens?

This, you balance that Sam has regained his vigor. His strength is young, handsome.
Now how was he, when his wife last left him?
Old, sick, almost 100 years old, sick. With a disease, the signifies skin was almost falling off from different places. He was angry with her, because she had cut her hair. Okay, so now she comes back, wary and tired. She comes. She goes into the room where her husband used to be. She's shocked because the bed is empty.
The husband's not there. And then she suddenly she starts to weep and cry. Where's my husband, guys, my husband, because she knows for a fact that her husband can't get her, you know, get around anywhere without her help. I mean, he can't do it by himself. So she starts to look around. Where's my husband? Where is my husband, who has taken my husband, perhaps a beast and animal came in and you know, devoured my husband, where is my husband, she cries out for her husband. And then you know why she was weeping and crying. She made it to the front entrance of the house. And she sees a young man, a handsome young man seated at the entrance of the house. And when she looks at him,
like are you you know, when he was young? When he was young, he remember that was not when they got married. He was he was young now. She looks at him and she said, Yeah, Roger.
Did you see my husband is an old man. He's got a very bad sickness. He was lying on the bed there. Did you see him? Are you bodies that was around, looks at her and he smiles. And then she couldn't just help but recall him again because the smile looks exactly like you. And it's not awesome. She's a little you know, confused now. And then are you bothering me says My dear wife. It is I are you.
It is I are you.
She looks at him and says young man Stop fooling around.
Stop fooling around me where my husband is. Yep. You know how you like pulling my leg? Don't play this joke on me. Please tell me when my husband and I need to find the band. My husband is a Eubalaena to services and the wife. It is an A you lost the honeymoon island has cured me. She could not believe her is not good. She believed her eyes a lot better well, and then are you balista to Salam praise Allah subhana wa jal and for one because if he was 100 years old, she was also bound to be about 100 years old or maybe around somewhere on 90 Perhaps she's also old, and now she's bald without hair. So are you buddies that Islam Praise to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah azza wa
jal blessed her to become young once again with her beautiful hair. Now why was he doing all of this because Allah subhanho wa Taala wanted to give everything back to iu ballyhoura whatever he lost, Eliza was now going to give everything back and multiply as well for you balance that was um, and that's what he was given his young age back and he looked even more handsome, even more strong, a lot accurate. His wife was given her young age back again beauty she was even more beautiful than how she looked before. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala made gold locusts rain down on him because Allah wanted to give him the world back again that Allah subhanho wa Taala took from him because he
passed the test of Allah subhanho wa Taala with flying colors, and then Allah subhana wa gyla. He blesses you balance that with Salaam with the same amount of children, 14 children who look almost exactly the same as the children, are you on a snare drum last. So he was given his wife in the sense his young age back, his wife was also given her young age back, he was given well, and he was given children at a loss behind at Medina blesses him once again, with crops with vegetation plots, with so much of worth all of his houses, everything was returned to you by me. So that was set up. Now the only thing that remains is the promise of humanity. Which promise
when she cut her hair, what did he say? out of you know, because he was so upset. He said, If I regain my health, I will not leave leave you I'll beat you 100 times but he was so upset that she had cut her hair. And this was a promise. At the end of the day, you can break your promises. And this is a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala and he was Berta, he was upset because he didn't want to he never meant it. He never, ever meant it. You understand? He never ever meant it. He just said it at that moment because he could not control his, you know, he was upset his grief his worry, he was so distressed. This came out from him but now he was in a predicament he did not want to, you
know, act upon it. And that allows behind him Ward's Island reveals unto him while he was big cow
for dreampi while
he was said, Oh, are you taking your hand a bundle of things.
grass green grass. Now like I said, some say was 100 Some say 50. Some say 10. Anyway, however many reads of grass, take in your hand, a bundle of tin grass, you know How heavy is grass, in blades of grass, so make a bundle out of it, and just touch your wife with it, touch your wife with it, and you have fulfilled your promise, just touch your wife with it and you would not have broken your code. So with that he fulfilled his promise as well. And then Allah subhanho wa Taala goes on to mention in the Sahaba RA
and we found him to be a patient individual in the
wearily Allah subhanaw taala goes on to say we found him to be patient truly we found him to be patient, and how excellent a slave.
How excellent a lot of Hannah Medina is praising or you believe that wisdom how excellent a slave was he never met either. In a word. He was always turning to Allah Subhana Allah in repentance in Toba, Allah subhana wa Jalla help us all to turn to Him Isaiah verger in sincere Toba, I mean
so many brothers and sisters in Islam.
With that the story of Elijah to ceram is over. But before we conclude today's session, there are a couple of questions that I would like to address. One question that came in a very interesting question.
From the applications that are mentioned in the Quran, the question was addressed to me from the application that I mentioned in the for our What is your most favorite application? And if so, why? And in regard to this,
there are many applications in the noble Koran. It's just that we cannot you know, pick and choose because generally, oh, we need all supplications and we need to pray unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. But to address the question, I would like to mention that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to recite one particular draft from the vials that I mentioned in the Quran of one da and this narration has been recorded in the book of Imam Bukhari and Muslim the Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to read this door excessively and this blog is mentioned in the normal model and that is why I myself read this a lot. Because, you know, in accordance to following the Sunnah of
Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam now what is this?
Allah subhanho wa Taala you mentioned in sort of in Baccarat Well, I mean, whom a boo Nora Bana Gina dounia Hassan Adam Levine de hacer una
beautiful glass and also devices that allow
us to read this law often often. And scholars Rahim Allah, they explain that even Musashi is not to say that he made this vow because Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned this in soloqueue on off
what Tubingen me had he dunia has an edge in here on Allah masala to Swami prays for lost animals Allah work to be a nappy headed dunya has an elephant Africa has an analyst translate the drought anyway. appena Tina donia has an O Allah, O Allah, give us in this world that which is good. rapana Athena dunya Hasina Warfield
de hacer un and give us that which is good enough. Sarah, the dividers in there while Tina
and Oh Allah protect us from the punishments of the of the fire of the blazing fire of Johanna May Allah Subhana Allah protect us all. Now a few points in regard to this law and why this law is so beautiful and so important. Scholars Rahim Allah they explained that if you analyze the data, how does it start?
Tina, look at the word rapana. This word Rob, you know, English fails to translate many Arabic terms because Arabic is such a rich language. If you didn't take this term alone, Rob, you cannot merely translate it as Lord. And you can't try to encompass the gravity of the word wrong by just translating it as Lord, Lord. Okay, fine, Lord, but then Rob, it has so many meanings attached to the nourisher protect cure giver.
So many meanings Allahu Akbar. So we are addressing a loss of 100
Oh Lord Protector, cura nareesha, the given the taken all of these meanings come under the word rock, he is the one who sustains all of us along.
Somehow it will
be him is the Lord, He is the sustain of the heavens and the earth and whatever is between it Allahu Akbar, we don't know we are in just one galaxy known as the Milky Way galaxy. There are so many other galaxies across this universe, so many other planets. And still scientists are researching whether there's life or not on those other planets, so many other creations of Allah subhanho wa Taala, we don't know about the animal kingdom, each day scientist is up to up to this day, they haven't still come up with an accurate figure of how many, how many living organisms are within the ocean, within the ocean, I'm sure there are divers in the crowd, they will attest to it. Each time
they go in, they see something new. Each time they go in, they see something new. And there are certain depths that human beings haven't gone in as yet. They only send machines, certain robots to go and record footage and come out. It's so dark, it's so deep that even human beings haven't gone in all of those creations. All of those millions, billions of living organisms are sustained by who
allies origin. And we are addressing that a lot of this is what is encompassed in the meaning of when you say, Rob, all of this, all of this, you have to imagine, you know, it's just mind blowing. It's just not Lord. And then that's it.
crop in the sense the one who sustains every single creation, not a leaf falls from a tree far away in the jungles of Africa, except that Allah knows about not a black and crosses a black surface, a dark black rock in the middle of the night, except that allies a virgin hears and knows about that end, such a powerful mega UN is subject to a lot of development, we are addressing that makeup.
And then the next part of the dryer, Sina donia, Hassan, Allah give us that which is good in this life. Give us that which is good in this life. Warfield karate Hassan, and give us that which is good.
And then Latina either
protect us from the fire of Johanna is a beautiful balance in the DA Allah subhanho wa Taala. He mentioned in this particular the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to make this too often because there's a beautiful balance. We have we wish for a good life in this world, as well as the hereafter. And this is the balance we have not lost, you know, our bearings in the sense by not only asking for dunya forgetting Alaska Now are we asking for after a while, you know wishing for a bad life? Indonesia? No, it's completely permissible for you to live a good life in this dunya as long as it is within the guidelines of Sharia. But don't lose focus of Ashura, we must not fixate our
focus only on to dunya we can have both the best of both worlds the best of both worlds. Allah give us good in this world as well as the hereafter. But with the balance, we understand from the DA that the focus is on toil after a while.
Even though there is a balance being made, the focus is on to answer because we're making one graph for dunya to ask for Ashura. robina, Gina Phil donia, Hassan, one guava dunia won't feel heroes he has the first love Alaska and the second part, Latina.
Even from the drought, we understand that we can strive for dunya no harm but our focus priority is what an asset a priority should be an answer and that's where our focus needs to be fixated. If not, Allah forbid, we may lose our bearings and you know start to flounder around like a ship in the middle of the ocean that has lost its compass May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect us all we always have our focus on to Alaska, whilst we traverse this ocean that is this life or this dunya? May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to do so. And then we that can be in a combination with that balance is another two elements that are balanced in the law as well. And that is what
was how was Raja and how were Raja? What are these two elements hope and fear, hope and fear. These are the other two wings of a believer you have to have these two elements Why? You're asking a lot behind the horchata robina genotropin dunya Hashanah what we have here on the horizon. This is hope you're hoping for the best in Alaska. Okay, you're hoping for the best and then you also fear the punishment the rottefella and your prey.
Allah protect us from the blazing fire of Johanna Raja well, so if you have hope in the mercy of Allah and you fear that punishment of Eliza scholars Rahim, Allah explained that this balance has to be struck between hope and Raja. And they go on to also say that when you are young, when you are young, it is best that you hold on to hope. You see the thing with Christians is that they don't have this element of health. They don't have fear. It's always the Lord's mercy, the Lord's mercy. Yeah, it's always the mercy factor. They don't fear the punishment of God, but we believers we have we fear because Allah subhanho wa Taala. What does he say in the Nobel for
not being a baddie me?
informed my slaves what, Annie?
That indeed and the most forgiving, the Most Merciful of law does not, does that not fill your hearts with so much of hope. And then the very next year, Allah subhanho, wa Taala, states
and V so that we don't take the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala for granted so that we don't play games, Allah subhana wa sallam these days were another hobby.
That indeed, and tell them that my punishment that My Torment is a painful trauma and a painful punishment. So there is a strike, there is a balance, there is a striking of the balance between
Raja will hope where you have hope in the mercy of Allah as well as the fact that you fear the anger and the rock of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So in the UAE as well. This is highlighted where you hope for the best from Allah subhanho wa Taala. But you also feel the management of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And like I said, scholars did that when you are young, when you are young. Hold on to the fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala hold on to the fear factor so that you stay away from sins. Whenever you think of something wrong, something that is haram, you immediately fear the punishment of Allah, Allah, but when you are close to your death, in other words, perhaps when you on your deathbed,
you're critically ill, and you feel that your way to die, then then hold on to the element of hope, then hold on to the element of hope, where you start hoping for the mercy of Allah subhanaw taala why because now you're about to return to Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to have hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to think good about Allah subhanho wa Taala you need to have hope in the mercy of Allah azza wa jal. So these two elements are beautifully balanced in this particular law. And this is why my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, it is such a beautiful and such an important law. It is a law which encompasses everything in a tiny nutshell. In a tiny nutshell. You ask you
for the good in this world as well as the hereafter good in this world in a sense, a good life a comfortable life a good job, good wife, loving wife, loving children, health, wealth, you asking for everything good in this world. Because at times you don't have you don't have time. Maybe you already had a very important juncture. And you want to make sure you just got onto the plane, your massage video device and to suddenly say if it's raining you do is answer the particular words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam say maybe you're making the walk around the house of Allah, then you can quickly make this law say every single night make it a point these last 10 nights make
this dua every single night at least once, if you coincide with lambda to the other. And if your new hire is answered this concise to her you get the very best in this world and the year after and you're safe from Johanna, what more can you wish for? And this is why the supervisor along while you attach so much of importance to this job. You're wishing for the best in this world, the best in Africa. When we talk about the best in Alaska you're wishing for the pleasure of Allah, you're wishing for gender and that find a new cap off the dryer by saying what
protect me from the fire of protect me from the moment of the fire of Johanna joaquina.
So let us all strive to follow the sooner or later it will send them by making this excessively and as much as possible.
Tina donia has an ad.
He has an ad Latina

May Allah subhanho wa Taala help us all to revive these last 10 nights and may help us to attain later through father I mean inshallah, inshallah, tomorrow we will be starting the story of Moses Moses, Elijah salatu salam, so I look forward to seeing you will tomorrow just like Kamala Harris
