Em? No, it took a lot her hepco to party he while at mo tune into mostly Moon films, buried. Brothers and sisters. Let me begin by asking Allah
subhanho wa Taala for His mercy and His acceptance for each and every one of us here today. And we further ask Allah azza wa jal to forgive us of our shortcomings and our mistakes Allah who's been on this blessed hour of your new Jumar We ask Allah azza wa jal to bring ease and comfort and patience to all those who struggle and suffer across the globe. Allah has been a human Bob,
perhaps this or next week might be the last Friday where we will see a lot of our young people in sha Allah Who to Allah, they will be praying Jumar elsewhere when school begins. And so today's reminder is, of course, for all of us, but for especially our young students,
that there's so much happening around the world.
And it can come from all angles, like it can come at a personal level. There's so many decisions, there's so many influences out there, there's so many things that are confusing, and religion can often get lost in a lot of those areas. And then if you look above and beyond, you look at some of the tragedies and some of the hardships that are happening and people are experiencing across the growth. Like the wildfires, the weather changes, temperature changes, it can literally all aspects of life, you can connect it to some sort of struggle or pain or stress. May Allah subhanho wa Taala give us strength, sometimes what tends to happen and this is all humans will go through this
is that we don't know, we're not able to understand how to comprehend or find perspective in all of these hardships. Sometimes it's depressing, even if the hardship isn't happening to you. Even if you're the one that's not experiencing the pain, to watch a fire come and wipe out an entire community, even if you're not there, but you see the images online and on TV, it's painful. It's tearful, you wish you could do something, but you know how limited you and I are. And those emotions can overwhelm us.
It can overwhelm us to the point
that if a believer isn't cautious, they start asking things like this. Why Allah? Why are you doing that?
Why allow so much people that go through pain? This is really the Most Merciful Those kinds of questions May Allah guide us to what is best Allahumma Amin, so they give some direction. So that when you get back to school, and most of us get back to a routine post summer to give you some sense of direction of how to handle all of this including the stress of school and everything else that brings along I want to bring your attention to a sutra. Most of us know Sudha Sharma. It's also called su little insurer, LM Nasrallah, Castlerock
I'm not going to give you a Tafseer of the surah we are just going to mention a couple of points in terms of context. But the goal today B is Nila heater Allah is what this surah especially the first three verses how you and I relate to these three verses. So I love initial rock, solid rock, while dharna unka wizard rock and Lizzy uncouple the hot rock and conclude with the fourth wall final like a thicker rock. Okay, so four verses. So let's begin in sha Allah. This surah is given at a time where the prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam is also thinking about life.
Some of the reader may say that suited to Sharia is connected to the previous Surah Surah to Doha.
Ignore Abbas and Radi Allahu Anhu. Now, when he recited sort of Doha, he would also recite Surah to shot together so after he finished his the sort of Doha Amma being our motto, Rebecca for her death, he paused in masala quietly then without Bismillah LM national halacha Sadara colder and continued the surah why, the real amount they say it was to teach the followers in the companions the connection between these two sources. Pseudo Doha was all about remembering all the blessings that Allah subhanho wa Taala gave you the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
let me adjudicate him and for our or whatever the hell ballin for her, or Jada Elan for Elena.
So he's reminding the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, about all these wonderful blessings of you were alone, we gave you a family, we gave you support. You know, you had nothing. We gave you this guidance, we gave you this religion. And Surah continues.
And then Allah reminds him well, so for Euro Takehara book for Thoreau, whatever Allah subhanaw taala is going to give you you're going to find peace in it. That's the first attitude or focus. I want to ask all of us to have, whatever Allah wills for us, whatever Allah puts in front of my eyes and yours, whatever Allah allows my ears and your ears to listen to and hear whatever Allah subhanahu Atitlan has time he gives you an eye in this world to see and experience all of these things.
For total door,
you're going to find some sense of satisfaction.
Some sense of peace. How brother mostly how I look at the world today. Tell you miss Mila
alumna Sri Lanka, Sadhak.
This literally means that the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.
Haven't we opened your chest in Shirato Sedona is referring to another concept or another term it shuffles southern. Sharper southern literally means to open the chest. So I know what some of you might be thinking. This is probably referring to the two times the profit or the slot was celebs chest was open, his heart was purified and so on when he was a child and before
Are the Soron marriage? That is one opinion amongst our scholars. But that's not our fault. But today, here's what I want to take from this Ilm. nasura halacha Sadara. What does that mean to me and you?
Nobody's opening our test and cleansing our hearts. So how do we relate to this area? Listen to this is a is referring to one of two things.
the ruler, man say that for six months, Allah paused the revelation
for about six months in Mecca.
The Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam.
One can say that he was lost, confused. What is Allah doing? And people are calling him all sorts of names. really awful things. I can't repeat them to you really awful things. Does that sound familiar? By the way?
You Muslims believe in Allah? Why does he put out those fires? control the temperature? Have you heard these arguments before? You've heard these statements thrown at you before? The same thing the Prophet alayhi salat wa salam is feeling. He's not thinking about climate change. He's not thinking about these disasters at a global level. You know what he's thinking about? Why are these Mexicans cheating each other in business? Why is nobody doing honest business these days? And it's stressing him out. Why isn't people following and living a wholesome marriage relationship where they're looking out for each each other, giving each other rights? Why is this community so corrupt? Why are
they doing it? Why is there so much bloodshed? It's stressing him out?
It's taking a toll.
So the first interpretation of lm nasura Flick esodoc is Allah is reminding him that look.
That pause, it's over.
We're going to resume the revelation.
What does that mean to you and I
some of us have a pause. In Allah's Deen don't we?
You know those days when you had your iman Masha Allah Tabata Kala and then that one day or that one week hit
problems began stress me and then the your your fetcher, you're missing it every day. Salah doesn't feel right, it feels heavy. Those moments, what does Allah take him back to an initial?
Didn't I give you this Deen already.
Meaning when you feel you're at your lowest tell yourself,
although I might be at my lowest Alhamdulillah I'm still Muslim. I haven't given up on you Allah. Even though I don't understand why I haven't given up on you. My forehead will still touch the ground for you, oh Allah. I still love this deed, Oh Allah, even though I'm not doing a good job practicing. I still love it. That's one interpretation. Here's the second. You know, when you have problems, it's easy for us as human beings to eliminate the things in our lives that causes those problems. Like if somebody said something to you, that really hurts your feelings. You're not going to become best friends with them. And they keep hurting you with words and over and I'm talking
about words that scar, you're not going to be close friends with me. I'm going to be like here, let's keep it No, it's not going to happen. You're going to try to distance yourself from that kind of relationship. Things that are physically burdensome, and cause you pain you try to eliminate Isn't that so?
Here's the second meaning of elimination, like a solid rock.
Think about somebody who went through a really bad divorce.
Somebody who's living in a marriage right now.
And it's all pain.
But when you see them, you see the smile.
The love you ask them how are you Al Hamdulillah
and that's where the sentence stops.
So physically, they might look well.
But you know where all their pain is? knew where all the scars are. It's in here.
You know, I can't tell you how many times and I think all Imams will say the same thing. 90% of the counseling that we will do is not because somebody is going through physical pain.
They will say to you, Sheriff, you have no idea what I've been through.
I know I'm happy and I smile at it come to your classes but if you were only in my house for a day
parents this is a tough thing to hear but I'm gonna say it anyway. Now how we tell our children build wildly Dane.
In what order
Sons and Daughters say in return that you probably don't hear when we tell them to be good to your parents and be respectful and so on, and we quote this beautiful area to them about parents, parents, parents, parents, sometimes those sons and daughters tell me you know brother Muslim, I get it. I get what the Koran is saying about betrayal validation, but you don't know my dad.
You don't know my mom. You will live in my house. You should see when dinner time happens, what what happens what I have to listen to
Allah Mishra. halacha Sadhak. Is Allah telling the Prophet Allah has salat wa salam, those inner emotional pains and struggles let them go?
Open spiritually, emotionally, open your chest, let it go.
It's a burden that will only cause you more pain. May Allah azza wa jal give us strength
What will Darner unco is Soraka Lathi uncle Baba Hara then Allah says that we lifted this burden that was weighing you down unpop Avada. It was really pushing you down. So go back to all the stress. And again, it doesn't have to be personal, your stress some of us our stress could be just what we see it here online and watch on TV. It's not necessarily on a personal level, you're concerned it's stressful to see all of the chaos in this world. That could be a cause to lose sleep at night. That could be also a cause for some to lose their appetite.
So Allah reminds him, let the uncle Mohawk
the thing that was weighing you down.
So you have LM national helical Sadako Dorner anchor with thorough quality uncle davara. One point I want to mention with wizard rock,
What a foreigner, wizard rock is
the kind of stress that you feel the burden to the point where you don't know if you can stand it takes away your appetite in your seat that's called withdrawn. The trilemma also explained wisdom like if you take a heavy object and you put it on a table, you know how sometimes you can hear the legs squeaking because of the weight. That's called wisdom. Now put all of this together.
The pain of this world whether it's on a personal or global level, that's causing you to feel the pressure that's causing you to say to yourself I don't know if I can carry this anymore. How do we fix all of this? How do we continue to move forward as believers? How do you continue to wake up tomorrow and the next day in sha Allah with a positive attitude? Feeling reaffirmed feeling that Allah sofa your article or a book photography whatever Allah subhanaw taala gives it you're going to find satisfaction How do I maintain
that attitude? In my deen and in life? That's where we conclude part of it. That's what we will conclude in the second part of the whole book, my brothers and sisters, all the answers are here in our dean,
all of them
without this deem the world will consume you and your problems will overtake they'll consume you.
And so, this is alluding to what is to come next.
What are foreigner like the Quran and we raised you Oh messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam and gave you a level of remembrance and a legacy like no other. What does that mean for you and I this is what we will conclude in the second part of the day. I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala give us strength. I pray that Allah keeps us close to his deen and I pray that Allah subhanaw taala protect the message of Islam in our sons and daughters in all of us. Allah has been a colo Mantis Marlon was stuck that Allah Who do you want to call Marisa a Muslim equally them first of Pharaoh in who will afford or Rahim I am asked to remind you that during the sitting period, especially for the brothers
that the back and even those of you here please try to come forward and fill in the gaps. There is a problem every week of brothers and sisters that are stuck outside in the hallway. So we want to try to do our best to accommodate them in sha Allah. So during the resting period, please come forward.
hamdu lillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Ali here after those Salah woman was buried
what a foreigner like Isaac rock.
This is where the
Surah started to tell the Prophet alayhi salatu salam and start lifting his spirits.
We gave you a legacy, that you will be remembered like no other. Think about it.
are the believers in the world at any given moment or time saying sallallahu alayhi wa salam think about it,
and sending Peace and blessings to him Salalah Toby wa salam, ALA,
the most important sunnah on the day of Juma is to send peace and blessings to the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So he has this legacy like no other.
But the question that we hope to answer and leave you with is what does that mean to you and I
remember brothers and sisters,
when we increase our remembrance of the Prophet Alayhi Salatu was Salam. And when I say that, it doesn't mean that you read his siara doesn't mean that you read his Hadith, his remembrance is preserved and protected, in how much we practice his teachings. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, otherwise, you know what the CRO will be? The CRO will be a really amazing life story of this man. salAllahu alayhi wasallam a hadith will be knowledge, it will be more knowledge and more knowledge. And how you know this is happening, how you know that Islam isn't helping you. You can assess and test yourself is if you have the same outlook, the same attitude, the same etiquettes today that you
had 20 years ago, marriage and is still exactly the same, the same problems are still there, because why there's no influence, there's no change. There's no willingness, I want to do better. I want to speak better. I want to have a better attitude. I want to have better etiquettes if none of that is there. This is a sign the knowledge is speaking to you but you're not listening. May Allah azza wa jal give us strength. So what Alfa Anna like the clock is our way that Allah tells us to teach us remember this man. follow his teachings, you will ultimately remember me SubhanaHu Attallah and we will be close to him. subhanho wa Taala so students I conclude this is the message I want you to
take when you get back to school. Parents the message when you get back to your routine post summer is that when the world feels like it's too much, or your home life is too much. Remember, there might be a gap somewhere between you and your relationship with Allah. The thing that ignites that is Allahumma Salli ala Mohamed and you start to connect Wait a minute, what is it in the Sunnah that I need to improve on then you'll see that ignition begin that spiritual ignition will begin then your connection will continue with Allah and it'll strengthen the salah will start to feel and taste more delicious, it will feel more sweet and when the Salah is sweet, the rest of this dunya life
also becomes sweet. I pray that Allah subhanaw taala keeps us close to him. Allah azza wa jal continued to uplift us in the message from with the message of the poor and and the message of the sunnah of our messenger SallAllahu it was salam. O Allah, we ask you on this blessed day of this blessing our keep us close to you, regardless of what our situation is, regardless of what the world is going through our OB We beg you and we ask you and we plead to you, keep us close to you and count us from amongst those who are righteous in this world.
