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

a minute or Allah or Sudha who forgot the fares are frozen Alima. I'm about

00:04:06 --> 00:04:24

brothers and sisters. We are surrounded at all times. From the time we come into this dunya to the time we leave this dunya and every single juncture of our life. There is one thing that's always going to be associated with us. And that is uncertainty.

00:04:26 --> 00:04:59

There's always when we wake up in the morning, we checked the weather. Why? Because to to take care of our uncertainty to cure our uncertainty. When we see the market crashing. We check our stocks. We check our investments, because there's uncertainty. We read the news over and over again about what is going on. There's always uncertainty. Not only is there uncertainty, but nowadays the entire Muslim world. We are struggling with challenges

00:05:00 --> 00:05:45

Today it is fun to sleep tomorrow. It is some other country. It is Burma or Rohingya than it is Syria than it is our Uighur Muslim brothers and sisters in China. And all over the world, Muslims are going through challenges. In India, we see what's going on. And then not only that, but then we see natural disasters occurring. We see what happens in Pakistan. And then we flip the page on Pakistan. And we see what's happening in Sudan, to our brothers and sisters there and how they have been affected by by a flood. And so you look at all these uncertainties, you look at all these challenges around us. And we ask ourselves that how do we cope with this? And not only that, but our

00:05:45 --> 00:06:35

own elections of this country is right above our heads? What's going to happen after November, the next person coming in? How is this going to affect our life? Are we going to be in a better situation or are we going to be in a worse situation? When we are surrounded with uncertainties, we have two options. Either we can say that let me try to do something on my own. Let me try to do something that to change his circumstances. Let me try to cure and let me try to take care of my unnecessary, my uncertainties. Either we can do that. Or we can come to the conclusion that if there is everything around us is uncertain. There's only one thing that does exist in our life that is

00:06:35 --> 00:06:38

certain and that is Allah subhanahu wata Allah.

00:06:39 --> 00:07:26

The weather will change. leaders will change. circumstances will change. Our financial status can change. Our economic situation can change, our social status can change. If there's one thing that will never ever change that is Allah subhanho wa Taala Kulu Manali have fun, will you ever call what you hold on because they generally will cram everything will perish. If there's one thing that will remain there is Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala at the SU command, he tells us, that there will always be uncertainties, and Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only thing that is certain, he says in the law in the whole aim was only Allah has knowledge of the the Day of

00:07:26 --> 00:08:09

Judgment. Will Eunice is it wise, when the rain will come? And where it will come? Well, yeah. Or harm was in the womb of a mother only Allah knows women tend to do enough some mother attacks the border, what will happen tomorrow, no person can ever tell us what mattered enough soon be interviewed? In what LAN? And where will you pass away? Where will we die? That is only in the hands of Allah. That's only in the knowledge of Allah. All these things are uncertainties. The reason why Allah mentioned this idea is to tell us that remember that you cannot cure and you cannot satisfy every single uncertainty. So we come to the conclusion that then we hold on to Allah subhanho wa

00:08:09 --> 00:08:51

taala. I need to connect myself with Allah subhanho wa taala. And the question is that when we have all these uncertainties, what can we do in these kinds of times? When we look at this pandemic that is taking place, when will it come to an end? Are we in the first phase second phase? How will it affect my me and my job and my family down the road? There are just some things are just beyond our control. What can we do in these kinds of these times of uncertainty, the very first thing is brothers and sisters is to embrace it. Do not fight it, do not fight it, do not oppose it. Embrace it, understand that this is something that is beyond my control. It is only in the hands of Allah

00:08:51 --> 00:09:31

subhanho wa Taala This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says he talks about a bird that a bird wakes up in the morning does it have any idea where it's this will come from? It has no idea but because it puts his full the workload in Allah subhanho wa Taala and it goes out in the morning and it comes out it comes back the day during the day and it's filled with its stomach is filled. It is satisfied. This is why the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says no uncommitted our canula Allah Allah He Hakata Luckily, the if you were to put your reliance in Allah, like the way Allah wants us to put in reliance in him,

00:09:33 --> 00:09:35

Allah will give you this command.

00:09:36 --> 00:09:59

The way Allah gives a bird his it is the bird also has to leave. The bird also has to go and do his job. It has to go in find his food, but the Prophet alayhi salam says don't do the mass and water rule for Bitcoin and he says he goes in the morning, empty stomach and he comes back in the evening with a full stomach. This is where Allah subhanho wa Taala wants us he tells us you are surrounded by ants.

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

certainties Why don't you put your to work well in the one thing that is searching in your life, and that is Allah subhanahu wata Allah. So the very first thing that we have to do is we have to embrace it. Number two is brothers and sisters focus on the things that are within our control. Look at our entire life there are things that are beyond our control. There are things that are that are within our control the prophets of Allah, why didn't he was sending was told when he was returning, and he was so sad that his uncle Abu Talib did not accept Islam. What did Allah subhana wa Taala say to the Prophet Allah you said, I'm in Nikola Tesla demon. What I can Allah you had a shot, he died. The

00:10:42 --> 00:11:23

results of everything that we do is in the hands of Allah subhana wa Tada. This is Allah telling the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they you take care of those things are within your capacity, the results are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala you go and you give Dawa. Allah may or he may not give hidayah to that person if, as Allah subhanho wa Taala wishes, so therefore brothers and sisters, when we study to see it all the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never did the problem, some say Hallas I've given up never did he say that, you know what, I'm not going to do anything. I'm gonna leave it in the hands of Allah. No, he did what he had to do, and he left the rest in the

00:11:23 --> 00:12:04

hands of Allah. Let's try to take care of take control of those things that we can have control over and leave the rest in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala number three, the third thing the third thing is the places where we have uncertainties, like we find in the case of the Prophet SAW Salem, what did he do? He made dua to Allah, sometimes he will pray is to Hara salad and he will make the hara with ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala that is what he would do in times of uncertainty when we have to make decisions that we are very uncertain about what our future will hold for us. Is this decision right? Or is this decision right? We have to make some additional decisions. Why not make istikhara

00:12:04 --> 00:12:49

Why not ask Allah subhanho wa Taala for guidance, we ask everyone else we pay people, we pay people as consultants and the one that we can consult with for free Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't ever consult with Allah subhanho wa taala. So this is the third thing. The fourth thing is reflect on the names of Allah subhanho wa Taala reflect on the names of Allah subhanho wa taala. When we say he is a hawk, that means that he is the absolute truth and he is a source of all truth. And not only that, but he's the only thing that is certain in our life. When we say he is working and working with is when the needs of Allah he is the one who is the most suitable that we entrust our matters to him.

00:12:49 --> 00:13:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala when we say he is a Salam, we're always looking for peace in our life. He is a salaam, the place where peace comes from the source of all peace, when we say that he is unresolved that we have to put our trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala that he is truly the law zip. And he is not just the laws that he's reserved in the law who are reserved. In Mateen, Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the Quran. So this is the fourth thing. The fifth thing that we have to do is to focus to focus not on the negatives of our life, but focus on the positives of our life. This will bring us closer to Allah, this will bring on our tongues Alhamdulillah but when I keep on

00:13:37 --> 00:14:23

focusing, when I keep on focusing on the negatives in my life, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will take away even the good the little good that we have in our life. Allah will take that away from us, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada he reminds us brothers and sisters, this idea that you and I we have heard so many times now in Chicago tune in Chicago tune net as he then Netcom if you are thankful to Allah, Allah will increase in your blessing will incur for if you are ungrateful to Allah Verily the punishment of Allah is Severe, this ayah does not come after an ayah in surah. Ibrahim after Allah has given logically speaking, logically speaking, when Allah Subhana Allah tells us to be grateful.

00:14:23 --> 00:15:00

It means that Allah has given us something that we are grateful about. But in Surah Ibrahim, Allah is telling us that he told the people of Bonita saw Eid, remember the challenges that you were going through and Allah has saved us from the challenges for that you should be thankful to Allah subhanho wa taala. So let us focus on the good things that have happened in our life. Focus on the Family that we have around us focus on Alhamdulillah there are people around the world that they go out and they don't know if they're going to come back home alive or not. There is so much chaos in their community and 100 today we don't have to go through that.

00:15:00 --> 00:15:44

But there are people who are who don't have the blessings of Allah, like we have today, even during this pandemic, and yet we only focus on the negatives of life. That's why we have to focus on the positives of life. And finally, finally, something that affects us affects all of us. The one thing that we give so many of hours of our daily basis, so many hours we give to this every single day. And what does this one thing do? It creates ingratitude within us. What is that one thing that creates uncertainty within us? It is social media. Social media, brothers and sisters is going to create only panic in our life. For the most part, I'm not saying social media is bad. Completely.

00:15:44 --> 00:16:23

No, there are people who use social media for the right reasons. And that is good. But many times what social media has created within us today is that number one, it has consumed so many hours of the day from us every single day. Number two is that he has created ingratitude within us. We are more unfaithful to Allah subhanho wa taala. He has created uncertainty within our life. That's why if these things are creating those kinds of wrong things in our life, we need to take that out of our life. We need to limit those things in our life. Brothers and sisters, social media, everywhere we are surrounded by it, let's use it the correct way. Use it in a way that brings us closer to

00:16:23 --> 00:17:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala use it in a way that we are more thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and not the opposite. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to grant us in these times of uncertainty, May Allah bring peace to our life. May Allah subhana peace in our hearts, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us the ability to have full reliance in Him and to have full reliance in his power and to have full reliance in his promises. Amira al Amin BarakAllahu li Walakum Filippo and all the way to find out what yeah culminated with Nikhil, Hakeem, a star for the law How do you welcome What do you say in Messina festival Pharaoh in a hula hula rock?

00:17:09 --> 00:17:41

Bismillah R Rahman Rahim Al Hamdulillah number two who when it started you know when that stuff you know, when I was with him and surely and fusina Marina Miyata Hillel for Ramadan nella woman knew that if I had wanted to do Allah illallah wa la sharika wanted to do I know Muhammad Abdul Rasul Allah for the call Allah Baraka Allah for Quran Medina upon me, brother are all the human ship on rajim Bismillah R Rahman Rahim in Allahu alayhi wa salam ala Nabi yeah you live in Abu Salah Allah He was sitting with the steamer, Allah Masha Allah Muhammad wa ala Muhammad

00:17:42 --> 00:18:27

Ibrahim wa Ibrahima in the Camino Majeed about one last thing that we can do to bring to bring peace and satisfaction to our heart to put a smile on our own face. There is one thing that we can all do. And that is to put a smile on someone else's face. When you go out when any one of us when we go out and we help someone. Allah will put a smile on your face. Why do you think brothers and sisters go and study people who have been victims of crimes? People who have been victims of heinous crimes, and they turn around and those people who have been victims what do they do? They create an organization to help other people to prevent the same crime. You know, why did he ever do that?

00:18:27 --> 00:19:06

Study these articles study your communities study. If you say sociology and so forth, you will learn this you know why people do these kinds of things, is because even though they had been a victim of crime, that when they stop the crime from happening to someone else, when they protect someone else, when they put a smile on someone else's face, this brings them satisfaction. This brings this takes them away from their misery and it brings them to satisfaction and peace in their life. As long as you help someone else out, then Allah will help you out and Allah will help us out. And not only that, but the prophet has some he says that when you help someone, when you help someone, this is

00:19:06 --> 00:19:46

better than doing erotica in Majid nibbly. This is better than doing erotica in motion and movie. Why? Because if you're doing erotica, you're only benefiting yourself. But when you go out and you have someone else out who's in need, you are not only helping them out, you're helping yourself out SubhanAllah. In times like these, let's try to always go and lend a hand to each other. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to give us the ability to give us the ability to do what is right at all times. And to stay away from what is wrong. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to bring us to bring peace. steadfastness is the farmer into our life, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that all those who are

00:19:46 --> 00:19:59

sick, all those who have been affected by COVID May Allah give them she felt all those who have passed away due to COVID or, or non COVID related deaths. May Allah subhanho wa Taala enlightened their graves May Allah subhana wa

00:20:00 --> 00:20:39

Let make their grave a garden of paradise May Allah subhanho wa Taala make the journey of the Accra an easy win for them. Um, you know, but I mean, we ask Allah to all those who have been who have who have been laid off from their jobs and they're looking for a job, a job, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give them a job. It is a holidays that will bring them peace and Baraka in their life and their family life. We ask Allah that anyone who is in any kind of distress, may Allah subhana remove their distress, and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us to give us every good that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam has ever asked for me noble Alameen Allahu Munster is someone with Simeon Allah
