As always we begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah who is our Creator sustainer nareesha protector and cure We ask Allah azza wa jal to Chava his choices of blessings and salutations upon our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, his family members, his companions and all those who tread upon his path with utmost sincerity until the day of

00:01:49--> 00:01:51

my dear brothers and sisters in Islam inshallah Allah

00:01:52--> 00:02:21

I hope to base today's doc on a beautiful Hadith that has been reported to us from Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. This Hadith has been recorded in the book of Imam Muslim Rahim Allah Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said, and the narration goes along the lines of these words. Amazing are the affairs of a believer. Amazing are the affairs of a believer, for all of his affairs are good.

00:02:22--> 00:03:13

If something good happens to him, he shows gratitude unto his maker. If something good happens to a believer, he shows gratitude unto Allah subhanho wa Taala. He acts upon Shakur, he shows gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And on the other hand, if something bad befalls him, if something evil, if something tragic happens to him, he acts upon Sabbath, he bears it patiently. So then do his affairs are good. So based on these two actions of his all of his affairs are good, because our lives in general consists of either happiness or sadness, this is how it generally works. And what we need to understand is that this world the life that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed us with is

00:03:13--> 00:04:03

generally full of trials and calamities. This is the nature of the creation of this particular life for the last mecanim Oda Allah has blessed us all with law as the virgin states in the novel for an LLB Hala pearl monta Well hi, Leah boo, boo, Mohsen Rama, that Elias virgin, he's the one who created Allah developer mode, so we'll hire He has created death and life for what purpose? LEAH bilou a youcam x anomala to test you all, to put you all through a test. For what reason i youcam x environment, to test you all to find out who is best in his deed in his deeds and his actions, to see which one of us is best in our actions. This is the purpose of the creation of death and life.

00:04:03--> 00:04:24

And the ayat I decided in the beginning was the number one condition in mental health. And definitely Allah subhana wa dialer will test you all with one big mental health with fear will Jura hunger naprosyn minute Meanwhile, loss of wealth while unforce loss of lives was tomorrow, loss of provision

00:04:25--> 00:04:59

for machinery soybean, but then again, through all these trials, the individual who goes through all of these trials and bear patients, while Bashir is Siberian give him glad tidings. Allah Vina either I saw but whom masiva the one who, upon which upon whom a calamity befalls kalu in Nadella he will erode your own. He says that indeed we belong to Allah subhanho wa Taala and to allow we return will eeka la you

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

saleha to me Robbie hemara. Upon he may be the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala and mercy but will not go home we'll move to Dune and they are the ones who will be guided the ones who are patient. The ones who are sabi rune. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us all from the ones who are patient I mean,

00:05:21--> 00:05:25

so happy once asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Yasuda Allah

00:05:27--> 00:05:38

Who are the individuals who are tested most by Allah subhanho wa Taala were put through tests the most by Allah subhana wa tada Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam clarifies

00:05:40--> 00:06:26

the prophets the prophets were tested the most. So Mel emcell fell, and then the next best afterwards the next best. And then the sort of life for the love while he was still a mentor to say in that same narration, that an individual will be tested according to his standing indeed, if he is very close to Allah Subhana Medina, he will be tested more. If he is close to Allah azza wa jal, he will be tested more. Because the ambia the prophets Allah He masala was Salam they were, they were the closest to Allah Subhana Medina, they were the most beloved unto Allah azza wa jal. So at times we think when we look at a person who is perhaps going through certain trials or calamities, we are

00:06:26--> 00:07:10

quick to be judgmental, and we are quick to judge upon that individual and say perhaps he is going through a trial because it is the anger of Allah subhana wa darland but then the ambia they were the closest unto Allah Subhana Medina, then why would they test it? If tests are based on the fact that Allah Allah subhanho wa Taala puts an individual through tests only if he hates that individual, then the ambia Allahi wa salatu salam would have lived rosy limes. They were the individuals who went through the most amount of tests, you name the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam, the prophet has gone through tests. Musa alayhi salatu salam, Ibrahim alayhi salatu salam, new alayhi salatu

00:07:10--> 00:07:59

salam, u Alayhi. salatu salam, Yusuf Alayhi, salaatu, wa Salaam, all of these ambia Allah salatu salam, they have all gone through tests. Why? Our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, look at the amount of tests he said among while he was Elementary, and after all, he was the greatest of them all. The seal of the prophets, the most beloved unto Allah, behind them with Allah of all creation. And he went through so many tests, so many tests, each prophet as you analyze their lives, you will come to a conclusion that they have gone through so many tests, Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. As a youngster that we attend, we skim through the story, we skim through the story, not

00:07:59--> 00:08:10

understanding certain subtle points and relationships that Allah Subhana medalla highlights us via he salatu salam at a very tender age, he was thrown into a well

00:08:11--> 00:08:14

not just look at the background of the story, by whom,

00:08:15--> 00:08:30

by his own brothers, by his own siblings, now put yourself in the shoes of use of Allah his route was around if your brothers if your siblings had dumped you in a well how would you be feeling? How much of anger

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

how much of anger, how much of

00:08:34--> 00:09:16

you know, strong, angry feelings you will be harboring in your heart. As a youngster, he was very attached to his father, as we see in the in the surah in the story that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in the noble Koran. He sees a dream. He goes and tells his father of the dream. And then his father interprets the dream, a very beautiful dream. And then his father advises him, don't tell this dream to anyone else, because they may try to harm you. And then his brothers, because they did not like this relationship that he was enjoying with their father. They plot and plan and go and dump him in a well that is it and they're not look his distance from his father. His distance from

00:09:16--> 00:10:00

his father is taken away from torn apart from his father and dumped into a well, it does not end there. Once he is waiting in the well now comes about a caravan. They look into the well Yahushua they take the boy out. Use of alehissalaam Salatu was Salam and he rescued was that a rescue team now. He was taken and sold as a slave, a free man, now taken to a marketplace unknown to him and sold as a slave. A young boy who was the apple of the eye of his father, Yahoo Donohue Salatu was salam, a young boy now now sold as a slave does it in there. Now he is I mean, the story goes really fast to the Koran now naturally

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

He's an adolescent now. And then the lady of the house, the mistress of the house, tries to seduce him, tries to seduce him, Allahu Akbar.

00:10:12--> 00:10:25

Being a youngster being a teenager, she's beautiful. She's a rich lady, and she's trying to seduce him. But still, he fears Allah subhanho wa Taala. And he says, to be led,

00:10:26--> 00:10:49

he says the prison is more beloved to me. And look at that test there. Whilst that conversation was going on, the master of the house comes in. And then he, there is a conversation that goes on to try to determine who the culprit was. And it was determined that use of Allahu salatu salam was free of all accusations. But still he was thrown into prison.

00:10:50--> 00:11:35

Next trial, thrown into a well separated from his beloved father, his siblings were the one who threw him into the well now sold as a slave. And was, this lady tried to seduce him, and now he was free of all accusations and innocent individual thrown into prison, with no one to speak on behalf of him. Just try to imagine what kind of a turmoil of emotions must have been going through the heart of use of AlLahi salatu salam, he's in prison now. And then the Quran mentions how he interprets the dreams of two individuals. One individual was to be killed, and another individual was to be released to inmates of the prison and he tells that individual you will be released. He

00:11:35--> 00:12:17

was given this, this knowledge of interpretation by Allah subhanho wa Taala. He tells the individual by the will of Allah you will be released. When you are released go and inform the king about me that I am here held unjustly. Shere Khan makes that individual forget about Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam velebit FEC Gini builder ICD, and then he remained in prison for so many years. Until one day when the king when the ruler of that land now sees a dream. He sees a dream where someone theme cows gobble up seven fat cows along dream that he was trying to get the interpretation of this dream and his ministers, his courtiers, they could not help him in relate in relation to this interpretation.

00:12:17--> 00:12:46

Then this individual who was freed, who was in the prison earlier remembers Yusuf alayhi salatu was Salam. And then he tells the king there is this individual in prison, he will be able to interpret your dream, Yusuf alayhi salatu salam was called now this is not something that happened in a matter of days, years. And just imagine a young boy, now he has grown up, he's been separated from his father for so long. Look at what a big dryer, a prophet of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:48--> 00:13:17

And then he interprets the dream. And then the king offers him a role. He is put in charge of, if you will, food and agriculture, he himself asks for that post use parlor, he salatu salam, now he's a governor, a kind of a ruler in that particular land. And then we know the story where the brothers come and eventually, long story cut short. Finally, after a long period of time, father and son unite together.

00:13:19--> 00:13:34

Look at the amount of trials Allah Subhana Medina put them through. Just imagine how the heart of Yahuwah salat, WA Salaam, Mr. B, he lost use of his beloved son Yusuf Alayhi salat wa salam, and then later on he loses his second son Binyamin

00:13:35--> 00:13:51

and knowing for a fact that it was his other sons who did this. He knew that it was them who had plotted and planned against his own son, just imagine how much of turmoil he must have been going through. But all the why, what is he maintained for solver?

00:13:52--> 00:13:56

Jeremy the patience is beautiful. In

00:13:58--> 00:14:30

COVID v. Ni long, that I will only complain of my worries of my grief to Allah subhanho wa Taala. This is the beautiful example he maintained yakou value salatu salam. Likewise, when you look at the other prophets, are you value salatu salam, and coming to our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Do you know that the 11th year

00:14:31--> 00:14:59

in other words, the 11th year after the prophethood of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known as Hamlet who's in this particular year, the 11th year after the prophethood of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was known as a humble person. It is translated as the year of grief and sorrow, the year of grief and sorrow. So why was this year known as the year of grief and sorrow in those days, they didn't have modern calendars.

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

methods to record time in general how they used to remember yours was based on important incidents and events that took place in a given year. For example, the year that also mine salam wa alayhi wa sallam was born, was known as the year of elephants, the year of elephants, because Arabs in general, they don't come across elephants in the lands of Arabia. So this was the year in which aberhart came with his army of elephants to muck up to destroy the cabin. So because of this incident, they called it the year of the elephants It was during that year that also la has had a long island wasallam was born. Nevertheless, the year of grief and sorrow. So why was this year

00:15:42--> 00:16:27

known as the year of grief and sorrow because two very tragic incidents took place that literally shook Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam two incidents. Number one, the first incident that took place was that one he said a long while he was alone, he lost his beloved uncle Abu Talib. During that year, he lost his uncle Abu tonic. Now, you might wonder, okay, so he lost his uncle. Why would that shake also realize that a lot while he was at home so much, please bear in mind that Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was an individual was an orphan who lost his father even before he opened his eyes as a child. before the birth of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam he lost his

00:16:27--> 00:17:10

father. And then six years down the line when he is six years when he was six years old, he loses his mother Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he loses his mother and then comes under the patronage the care of his grandfather Abdulmutallab. And then when he is when he was eight years old, he loses his grandfather Abdulmutallab. And then he comes under the patronage, the care of his uncle abou tonic. My dear brothers and sisters in Islam. I'm sure the ones who have children here will attest to the fact that it is extremely difficult for an individual to care for someone else's child more than your own child. Naturally, we have been created in such a way that we love our

00:17:10--> 00:17:21

children first priority is given to our children first and then others should we don't hate others children. But still, we cannot bring ourselves to love someone else's child over our own children.

00:17:22--> 00:18:03

But a blue toilet proves us wrong. He nabbed Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam even more than his own children just amazing. So now just imagine the relationship between those two mines that a man while he was adamant about it, no fatherly figure No matter if we get the life of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Abu totally played the two roles. He was his father and he was his mother. In other words, motherly figure as well, because those who reminds her of love Island wa sallam lost his mother at the age of six. So Abu Talib played these two roles perfectly, and he loved Rasul my Sorbonne while he was alive. He showed so much of catalyst device that alumni let us

00:18:03--> 00:18:10

tell them it was during this year the 11th year Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam lost a butare

00:18:11--> 00:18:32

when the news goes to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that Abu Talib is in the throes of his death Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam rushes to his uncuttable toilet. He rushes to him and he goes by there are narrations that have been recorded in regard to what took place, nevertheless was utilized for a long while he was trying to encourage his uncle or my uncle after the Kadima after the cannibal.

00:18:33--> 00:18:59

The other pagans of Makkah, were around a blue toilet, the other leaders of the other tribes such as Abu Jamal and others, and they were shouting, they were screaming at the top of their voices to drown the voice of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was pleading Oh, my uncle after the kalama they don't have to hear it, even if I can hear it. I will plead on behalf of you on the day of the AMA. I will intercede on behalf of you his beloved uncle.

00:19:00--> 00:19:39

But then before he breathed his last, his uncle said, My dear nephew, my beloved nephew that is something that I cannot do. And then he passes away for sort of why he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam leaves the room, dejected, full of anguish and grief. He said a lot while he was said it was literally crushed. Because he lost his beloved uncle. He leaves the room as he leaves the room. Allah azza wa jal reveals an ayah which is which is in sort of sort of process if I'm not mistaken, in Ghana, the man band in

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

La Jolla de May.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

Oh, Mohammed said a long while he was lm in Nicoletta demon. You cannot guide whom you love or whom you will work in de la jolla de Maria

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

But Indeed Allah Subhana Allah guides whom He wins, many brothers and sisters in Islam. This is part of our Father, we believe this part of our faith in God. We believe that the individual who Allah subhanho wa Taala guides, none can lead astray, even if the whole planet were to get together. Even if the seven odd billion human beings were to get together and try to mislead that individual if Allah azza wa jal has guide an individual, none can mislead that individual none can misguide that individual. But on the other hand, the unfortunate individual who lost behind mo dialer has decreed that he should be misguided that he should be led astray, that even if the whole planet even if

00:20:47--> 00:20:59

seven or billion human beings were to go to him and give our what to try to guide him if Allah has decreed misguidance upon the individual, then none can guide that individual may Allah subhanaw taala save us.

00:21:02--> 00:21:46

Some people thought of this ayah which Allah subhanho wa Taala sent down as rebuking Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they thought of this ayah as this Iowa's reprimanding Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but in reality Allah azza wa jal was not rebuking Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam nor was hearing nor was he rebuked nausea reprimanding those who live for a long while he was sending instead, Allah subhanho wa Taala was consoling His Beloved Prophet, he was consoling Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam by telling him Yara solaia Mohammed, it is not your responsibility to guide people. Your responsibility is to convey the message. It is our

00:21:46--> 00:22:28

responsibility to decree guidance. So remove this burden off your heart. This is not your responsibility. guiding people is our responsibility. Your responsibility is just conveying the message. So Allah azza wa jal was consoling and comforting Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam during that moment of grief. This was tragic incident number one. tragic incident number two was that a few months after the death of Abu Talib, or a few days later, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam loses his beloved wife Khadija de la Juana, he loses his beloved wife for the job of the law one.

00:22:29--> 00:22:30

Now, once again, you might wonder,

00:22:32--> 00:23:15

you might be thinking about how tragic can that incident be? I know for a fact that Khadija the loved one was a pillar of support for a sort of law, he said along while he was in a pillar of support a boulder of support. Remember when Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam comes down from the cave after the encounter with jabril alayhi salatu was Salam. He comes shaken he comes running to Khadija de la Mancha. zemi Luna ism Milani Deaf pieroni that's the Rooney Cover me up, cover me up. And Khadija de la vida immediately covered. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam consoled him and comforted him. She was one of the ladies of Makkah, who enjoyed a high social standing, she was

00:23:15--> 00:23:52

a rich lady. She enjoyed a high social standing, and before her marriage with the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam there were many suitors who wanted to get married to her while asking her hand in marriage. Because she was rich. She was involved in business. She was a noble lady who enjoyed a high social standing. She married was one who said the Long Island was lm spent all of her wealth in the mission of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and she did not care at all about her social standing. She lost her social standing, because the pagans of Makkah were against those who lived for a long while he was adamant that she did not care. She dedicated herself for the mission of the

00:23:52--> 00:24:10

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this is why the supervisor allamani was sent him was so closely attached to Khadija de la to LA to illustrate how much the supervisor along while he was in love Khadija de la vida years after her death during the Battle of budget.

00:24:12--> 00:24:16

During the Battle of budget, this there were a few captives who were taken

00:24:18--> 00:24:35

as prisoners. One of them was the son in law of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, the son in law, he was the one who had married Zainab el de la weinheim Xena brother good long wine had the daughter of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the daughter of Khadija on the landline.

00:24:36--> 00:24:42

So this son in law was taken captive. And in general the norm was that if a captive was taken

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

the captives relatives in Makkah, had to send a ransom to free the capital. This was the no sustainable the long line ha was in Makkah. Her husband had not embraced Islam as yet so she had migrated to Medina. She sends a necklace

00:25:00--> 00:25:35

As ransom to free her husband, Xena, bro the alarm line has sent a necklace as ransom to free her has Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was seated and the Sahaba read one later highlighting Benjamin in the one of the companions brings the necklace to show the prophets that alarm while he was sent him that this is ransom that has been sent for such and such for soil. So the minute Rasulullah is going along while he was in him, took the necklace. And the minute he saw the necklace, he said a lot while he was lm started to sob and we hear so lies that a lot while he was in him started to cry.

00:25:36--> 00:26:08

The Sahaba the companions were around him, they became very upset and they asked you how to sue the law. What is disturbing you? Is it something that we have done? What has perturbed you like this? Why are you upset? Why are you in grief than the supervisor along why let us say that looks at the next lesson. Then he says this necklace belonged to my wife Khadija de la Mancha. And she gifted it to my daughter as I enter this necklace used to belong to her deja. And she gifted it to Xena for the alarm.

00:26:10--> 00:26:47

And he starts to read. And then he informs it's a habit almost a habit. If you wish, take this necklace and free him and send him back to my daughter. Or if you wish, free him and give this necklace back to and send it to my daughter. Do whatever you wish. Of course the Sahaba did one night the heilala imagine mine they love Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam they could not stand. The reason why he said alarm while he was upset. They freed the capital. In other words, the son in law of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and they sent the necklace back to another incident. A convoy comes from Yemen. A convoy comes from Yemen. And those two lines that alarm while he was

00:26:47--> 00:27:32

sitting was gifted a beautiful, exquisite shawl from Yemen, a beautiful Yemeni shot, he takes the shawl and he calls for a companion. And he asks that companion go and give this shawl to a lady who lives in this in this area. This companion immediately asked Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam era sudama This is a show that has come for you. But why are you gifting it to some unknown lady that also lies that a lot while he was selling clarifies the lady that you are going to go and give this short or go and deliver the shawl to is a good buddy, a good friend of my wife Khadija de la vida. She's a close friend, and I generally gift things to all the friends of Khadija de la vida.

00:27:33--> 00:28:07

Now why would an individual do that? If not for the love that that individual had for his spouse? Why do you think those were the lies that allowed while he was in them did that because Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam love love Khadija de la Han has so much so much. These were the two tragic incidents that took place during that particular year. And that year was recorded as our who's in the year of grief and sorrow because these two incidents left Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam shake. So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, if Allah azza wa jal

00:28:09--> 00:28:28

did not want to test individuals whom he loved or whom he loves. Then there is no need for Allah subhanho wa Taala to put the most beloved of all creation Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam through so many tests. So many tests, five Keystone and chased out

00:28:29--> 00:28:36

his relatives his his uncle, Hamza and others are the long line Well, they were killed.

00:28:37--> 00:28:49

The Muslims, including us allies have a long while he was in a war boycotted, but persecuted by their own people, the people of Makkah, they were chased out of Makkah. He went through so many tests and trials, Allahu Akbar.

00:28:50--> 00:29:37

He went through so many tests and trials. From this, what we understand is that tests and trials are gifts from Allah Subhana whether they are actually blessings in disguise, they are blessings in disguise, because they forgive our sins. tests and trials are a means for our sins to be forgiven. They are means for us to be polished to the better and they are also a means for us to enjoy. Hi, Dora jack high ranks in gentlemen. So what does the believer do when a believer is put through a test or a trial? What does a believer do? Say for example, if you lose a loved one, if you are put through financial loss perhaps if you are facing problems in your marital life, if you are afflicted

00:29:37--> 00:29:55

with a sickness, a terminal sickness, perhaps a small sickness, a long term sickness, whatever the sickness may be, if you are put through certain calamities, what do you do? A believer is the one who holds on to patience for sovereign Jimmy. You are supposed to be patient

00:29:56--> 00:29:59

without delay him Salatu Mira Bhima they

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

Once upon whom Salawat Milan Mahatma blessings and mercy of Allah Subhana Medina upon them. So it is upon us to be patient, it is upon us to be patient and turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala. And like we said earlier this life that Allah Subhana what Allah has given us, is a ground for us to prepare for Africa. It is a testing ground where we are supposed to prepare for Africa. We are supposed to strive in terms of good deeds, if we are youngsters. If we are youth, then we are supposed to strive as much as possible using our energy to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. If you are a husband, then follow the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the best of husbands. If you

00:30:45--> 00:31:30

are a wife, then follow the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the best of wives. If you are a father, if you are a parent, then follow the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to be the best of parents. We are all children, then fulfill your duties unto your parents bidwill violating in accordance to the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be united as the oma of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam be united as a family unit because remember that shaytaan our sworn enemy our sworn enemy is working left right and center to try to divide us to try to divide our families to try to drive a wedge between two spouses to break

00:31:30--> 00:32:17

marriages. As you all know Hawaii is in Muslim shaitaan has put up his throne in the middle of the ocean and every single day he calls all of his armies, his troops and he takes account from all of them every single day. There are devils they give reports unto him okay we BBD we went and did this because this corruption because this evil this mischeif he listens to everything okay, okay, okay. Until one of the devil's say, I cause problems between two spouses. I caused the strife between two spouses and I did not leave them until I made them part ways until I made them separate law. Then shaytan calls that particular debit and congratulates him You are the one you have done the best of

00:32:17--> 00:32:17

them on.

00:32:18--> 00:33:04

Why? Because a family unit is so important in Islam. The minute two spouses are connected, are very closely joined in a marital bond and if they both fear Allah subhanho wa Taala and work towards one goal, which is the pleasure of Allah subhana wa Taala and Jenna, then that family unit becomes whole, the children are blessed. The children grow up well fearing Allah subhana wa Tada. The children grow up in a manner that they strive to please Allah subhanho wa Taala. But the minute a wedge is driven between two spouses, and the minute the two spouses perhaps decide on divorce, even though it's not something Hara, but still it breaks and shatters a home. I mean, if two spouses are

00:33:04--> 00:33:39

incompatible, they have to part ways. But we have to try as much as possible to make a marriage work. We have to try as much as possible. There are many factors that make a marriage work. We should not look at it from one perspective. And nevertheless, this is not a marriage talk. So we don't need to spend a lot of time in that. But still shaitaan tries his level best to divide two spouses because he knows them in the house, a family breaks and the children are shattered. The children who come out from a broken home are generally very disturbed children are very disturbed children because of what they have witnessed amidst their two parents. So shaitaan is trying his

00:33:39--> 00:33:53

level best and remember, according to the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam yejide fie macerata shaitaan runs in your blood chiffon runs in your blood. Mr. Medina, Rahim Allah explains that is how he studies us.

00:33:54--> 00:34:37

He tailor make straps for each and every one of us. He knows if he goes if he studies an individual he knows Okay, these are Your weak spots. You have a weak spot for music, you have a weak spot for movies, you have a weak spot for women, you have a weak spot for this you have a weak spot for that. And he tailor makes straps in accordance to that he studies us and that is why he is known as a sly cunning enemy. He is one of the oldest or he is the oldest individual living on the face of this earth. He existed before Adam AlLahi Salatu was Salam. And he asked Allah Subhana Medina corner of be under Neela yo Mubarak, don't give me time give me respect until the day of and Allah azza wa jal

00:34:37--> 00:35:00

has given him time until the day of Korea, and his mission is nothing else other than to misguide mankind. This is his mission. This is his agenda. He is working day and night to do that. We as believers, what is our mission, our mission is to avoid the traps of shaitaan to fear Allah subhanho wa Taala to be conscious of Allah behind the Medina and to attain His pleasure thereby at

00:35:00--> 00:35:04

Gentlemen, attaining success in this world as well as the Hereafter, this is our mission.

00:35:05--> 00:35:20

If shaitan is one barrel of monkeys, we need to be two barrels of monkeys. If he Taylor makes traps for us, we need to study how to avoid his traps, we should not fall for his traps, we should not become prey to his traps. May Allah subhanho wa Taala save us for

00:35:21--> 00:35:25

the life of this dunya is very, very short, very short.

00:35:26--> 00:35:40

According to the words of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 6070 years, if you are 30 years old, if you are 40, and you're just got another 20 or 30 years, perhaps we live, that is if you live until 70. That's a big if

00:35:43--> 00:35:52

none of us can guarantee how long we are going to live, none of us. So the question that we need to ask ourselves, are we ready to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala have we done enough good deeds?

00:35:54--> 00:35:59

Because if we haven't, then we are going to be losers on the day of them or when the scales will be put up.

00:36:00--> 00:36:05

All of us we wish that the pan that has our good deeds should go down

00:36:06--> 00:36:40

should go down heavy, and that the pan where our evil deeds will be put should go up. So for that we must work hard we must strive to please Allah subhanho wa Taala there are many, many things that we can do. Mainly following the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he was an amazing teacher who came to us, he taught us matters from relieving ourselves, cleansing ourselves to even ruling the lands. So if we follow his teachings, we will be successful in this world as well as the hereafter.

00:36:41--> 00:37:05

If we follow his teachings, maintain a clean heart, purify your hearts, do not have grudges, do not have hate, do not have any form of negativity in your hearts. These are the little things if you do these things, you are bound to be successful in this world as as well as the hereafter you need become an avid who who prays 1000 records for a single day to enjoy hi stations in general.

00:37:06--> 00:37:52

If you can beautify your heart, if you can follow the teachings of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stay away from innovations you are successful in this world as well as the hereafter. But it's actually difficult. I will say praying 1000 records for a day is a lot easier than purifying your hearts. You need to purify your heart from all evil things grudges, anger, jealousy, hatred. Today we have so much jealousy, so much of hatred, even in one single family among siblings, amongst children amongst you know your own brothers and sisters, you envy one another. This is because our hearts have hardened, our hearts have turned black and our hearts are not pure. We envy others. We

00:37:52--> 00:38:31

do not like to see someone else going up the ladder. We wish for his destruction. We wish that he should fall. We wish that he should be destroyed. We don't like to see someone else enjoying the blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala we wish evil for him. Why? Because our hearts have turned bad. Our hearts have become rotten. an hour in the future. The Buddha Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is reported to have said that in an individual's body there is a piece of flesh, either solid or solid held just to do cool. If that piece of flesh is good, if that piece of flesh is upright, then the whole body of that individual will be good will be upright. In other words, only goodness

00:38:31--> 00:38:41

will come out of that individual's body, He will speak goodness, his actions will be of goodness, every single thing an aura of goodness will surround that individual

00:38:42--> 00:39:15

with either a faceted facade or just if that piece of flesh goes bad, if that piece of flesh goes rotten, then the whole body of that individual will go back and only evil will come out when he speaks his speak even he'll back by he'll gossip he'll put down people he'll he'll be judgmental about other people, he will start talking to people in a condescending manner. Only evil will come out when he looks at an individual only evil will come out he'll start casting the evil eye. He will envy others

00:39:17--> 00:39:21

actions all evil, only evil actions will come out of that individual.

00:39:22--> 00:40:00

And then the professor along while he was element on to say an hour here. It is the heart of an individual. The narration goes along the lines of these words an hour here. It is the heart. So my dear brothers and sisters in Islam. Let us work on our hearts. And let us follow the teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam if we wish to attain success in this world as well as the hereafter. May Allah subhana wa Taala forgiven of our sins, accept our good deeds. And just as how he united this year this Sunday evening may unite us in the gardens of Genoa with our beloved prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I mean Russia and hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen to

00:40:00--> 00:40:00
