Sudha who forgot the affairs of I was in Alima. So the Allahu dalim for in as the call Hadith the Kitab Allah will holy how do you how do you Mohammed in salAllahu alayhi wa Salam wa shot a little more than that to her Wakulla monitor that in bedarra What could be the art in vada Wakulla Beratan Finnur I'm about
I first of all, begin by praising Allah subhana wa Tada in thinking Allah for all the near misses and all the blessings He has bestowed upon us, whether we are aware or unaware of them. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to have mercy upon us in this dunya and akhira. We ask Allah subhana wa Tada to keep us steadfast upon the Drina Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to give us death upon the middle of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa salam, may Allah give us in our upcoming generations the ability to remain on the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salam, may Allah grant us his companionship along with our families in general for those that are Allah Ameen, Oberon
Amin brothers and sisters.
One of the things that we hear every single hotbar every single hotter, every single halacha is about the importance of establishing a relationship with Allah subhana wa Tada
meaning that we build a such a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala knowing that no matter what the circumstances are, whether we are going through times of difficulty, or times of ease and prosperity
are really our relationship with Allah should always remain strong.
In this dunya we see that we always have relationships. Sometimes we have a relationship with our uncle. We have relationship with our aunties and relatives, whether they live here in America or delivered any other place around the world. But he does not mean that we talk to them every week. Sometimes we don't even talk to our relatives for years, but yet we have a relationship with them. A lot of times when we when it comes to our relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala we go through life, we understand that there is an entity called Allah, and he's back there and he's there somewhere there in our life. But that relationship is not strong with Allah subhanho wa taala. And
only when we fall into difficulties, and we exhaust all means of solving that problem, and we have nowhere to turn. Then we go back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah tells us so many times, in fact, I want to remind myself and everyone the idea of the Quran where Allah subhana wa Tada says, mana Amina salah, lehan mean that can in our own will who were movement, Fela nahi and now who has written for yerba, whoever is a righteous person, man Amina, Salah hun means they can own whoever does righteous deeds mean that it is not sufficient, that we say that Allah does exist in my life, or I do believe in something called Allah. But no rather my relationship with Allah is strong, and I
communicate with ALLAH on a daily basis in my salon, I remember Allah every single day in my throughout my life. Then Allah subhanho wa Taala says, man or woman, if they do this, now Allah says He will give them a life full of peace and contentment. Now, when we talk about life in life and peace in life and contentment in life, one of the biggest misunderstandings that unite we have is that when we come closer to Allah subhanho, wa taala, the more our problems will be eliminated. That's the quote, that's usually the mentality that we have. But I want to remind everyone in myself, that when you go back to the stories of the Quran, when you go back to the stories of the
seed or the prophets of Salaam, when we read the stories of the Sahaba of Yolanda, on whom we learned the complete opposite, we learned that the more they came closer to Allah, the more there were difficulties in their life. And if you see other religions, when us here, you know, if you have you know, if you're in the habit of sometimes you watch these kinds of like evangelical pastors and so forth, and when they talk to their people, and so forth, they usually promise them that when you come closer to God, than to God takes away all your problems in life. But our deen teaches us that that's not what's happening in life. In fact, a lot of times when you come closer to Allah, there
will be problems, you may be far from Allah and there will be problems, you may be close to Allah and there will still be problems. And the rule of life is that there is not any one in life who is exempt from problems. Every person has issues going on in their life, whether it's financial, whether it's family, whether it's health, there is some issue going on. And a lot of times when we try to make sense of these problems, that where is the root of these problems, sometimes we don't know where it is, where is it coming from?
We remember Sudha and Kabuto Allah subhanho wa Taala what does he say in the beginning of Surah Anika booth, he says Alif Lam Meem a Hasib a nurse who a neutral to a yaku Amanda Humla. You afternoon? Do you really believe that you can claim that or you can say that you believe in Allah and you will not be tested. And it was interesting to note is that before this Allah said Alif Lam Meem. And according to our feeder, no one can interpret what is the meaning. I mean, there are theories out there, but no one truly understands what is the meaning of a leaf Lam meme and the roof omocha art. And here there's a very subtle lesson to be learned from this. And that is that when
Allah talks about trials and challenges in life, and before this, he said only fly me when we have no idea. What that means is that there are a lot there are a lot of challenges in our life, that we cannot make sense of them. We will never be able to make sense of them. If there is someone in our family who is going through a serious health situation. And we take them to doctor after doctor and we usually say at the end of the day that why is this happening to him? Why is this happening to my family member? Why is it happening to my son? Why is it happening to my daughter, we may not be able to make sense of this of these problems. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us that you will be
tested. And Amanda Humla you have to know the word you have to know
comes the word fitna. And the word fitna applies to, when you have a goldsmith, a goldsmith who's trying to purify the gold, they not just sit there, and they try to like brush it off, or they try to scrape off the dirt, and so forth off the gold, they have to put it into a fire, they put it into a fire, and that and because of the fire, it melts the gold, and all the dust particles that are in there. Everything that may be inside the gold, that may take away the quality of the gold, all that melts off. And what you have at the end of the day is pure gold. Likewise, Allah subhanho wa Taala will sometimes put us through issues and put us through problems, but he wants the best out of us.
And as I said earlier, there is no one who is exempt. But Allah subhanho wa taala, he puts us through this. So the question is that when these problems do occur, what do we do? And how can we overcome them? The very first thing is, brother and sisters, I will not be honest with you. There are a lot of times people in life who say, You know what, there's no point of life anymore. I'm going through so many difficulties in my life, I rather just die.
I've heard times that people will come to me that there are people in the community that they're going through so many struggles, that they are contemplating suicide, this is an issue, a serious issue within our community. And as much as we want to push it, you know, we want to push it down. And we want to sweep it under the rug and completely ignore it. This is an issue, talk to the people who are in charge of funeral homes. I met a person just few weeks ago from California. And he told me that in one year, every year, in fact, the suicide rates are increasing here in Texas in our own Muslim communities, every year, the suicide rate is increasing. Now, if a person gets to the point
that says there's no point of life, first of all, they're one thing the one thing I do want to say is for anyone to have these kinds of thoughts, because the very first thing someone will say to you that if you have these kinds of forces, that means that your Eman is weak. That's the first answer that you and I we get. But I'm here to tell you that if these kinds of thoughts, time time, they may come or if they ever come once in your life, you're not a criminal. You're not a criminal. You're nothing. It's not a sign that you have weak faith. Because going back to the story of Maga Malaya salaam to Maria Malik Islam, when she was in labor pains, she came Allah subhanho wa Taala says for
Elijah Halima Hado, Elijah inocula, and when the pains of childbirth drove her to the trunk of a palm tree, what did she say? Yeah, Lee tiny little Bella hada that I wish I would have died before this. Welcome to NASA man sia and I would have been in the oblivion and the Forgotten here, she's wishing that she would have been dead rather than going through this problem. Once again, Allah subhanho wa Taala did not say that oh, money and why are you saying this on Monday I'm your iman is weak, the Quran the fact that the Quran is mentioning this, and we will read it to the Day of Judgment. This is a very powerful lesson and all if for all of us in this, that when these kinds of
negative ideas come to our mind, it is not a sign that you have weak faith.
But what this is a sign of is that we got to become stronger. We got to become stronger. It's all about our faith. We might be sometimes weak, we might be mentally weak, physically weak to endure something like this. And not only that, but in a situation like this. We can never blame Allah subhanaw taala we cannot say the wider Allah do this to us. Like in the story of MoneyGram she never blamed Allah for this. She never said, Oh Allah, why are you doing this to me? And this is your fault and so forth. She never said anything disrespectful about Allah subhanho wa taala. But she did say this. So when these kind of negative thoughts come, and if they come, first of all, hopefully
they don't come so many times. But if they come, never feel that you are a criminal, and if someone does say something about your faith and about your Eman, it is not true that your email in your feed is absolutely weak. The second thing is that when we have problems, as I said earlier, when you go back to the life of the prophet, he never had issues the minute he became a prophet, there were issues in his life. Go back to the Sahaba of the Allah to whom a man like Musa have been made or the Allah Tala and so many Sahaba they were living prosperous lives, but the minute they became Muslims, life became difficult for them. Logically, it should tell us logically when makes sense is the more
you come closer to Allah the more things become easy, but at the same time when we look at their lives, you look at the story of Yaakov Alehissalaam Jacoba laid some cried and cried and cried for use of Allah Usila and that the Quran says will be yup dot Aina that his eyes became white mean that he became blind and
later on Allah subhanaw taala did return his eyesight, but if all these are prophets, and they are the closest people to Allah subhana what the Allah, once again the point is that problems will never go away in our life. But when you and I, here's the key thing, if anything from this hotbar please remember this. If a person is connected to Allah, if a person has a strong relationship with Allah subhanho wa taala, the problem will not go away, probably, but Allah will give us the strength, the fortitude, the ability to navigate and maneuver around those problems. Those problems will exist in our life. But Allah will give us the strength, the mental strength, the physical strength to get
through those issues. And when you are not you when you don't have a strong relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala than a person at that time, when a person's eemaan is weak, then shaytaan will come and he will say that look at Allah, you say you believe in Allah Yet Allah subhana wa Taala is not there to help you. And this is where people they often they slip up.
When a person has Iman, when a person has Iman, Allah subhanho wa Taala they take there's two things that are like before I mentioned anything for anything forward. There's two things that we find in the Quran. This is a term or this is an idea that you and I we have heard so many times, la hopefully la him Allah whom you don't, there is no grief. There is there is no fear, there is no grief, there is no fear no, no grief, in the story of the story of Mussolini, some the mother of Musa alayhis, Salam Musa Allah his son's mother comes and she sees that her son's life is in danger. Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling her that put him in the water, not just put him in the water,
throw him in the water. And after that Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Let the hoffy Wallah has any what is that the Hafi wallet as any mean in the Quran, it means that there are two things that you and I were always fearful about. We're always fearful about the future. And there's always regret about the past. If there is something that you have no idea what's going to come up, when we see it when we see some a phobia, when we see certain situations are taking place. Imagine you hear something in your company, that they're going to be layoffs. Now that is hope there is hope. There is no idea what's coming forward. And likewise, there are regrets about the past. There are regrets
about the past. Now when something has happened. Imagine if you went and there was a test and you fail the test, for example, first of all, there was a fear that am I going to pass a test or not. Now you find out that the test has you did not pass the test. Now there's no more fear. Now there is person that now how do I overcome this loss? You know, I'm saying when a person loses so much money in the business before you get into a business, there's always that, you know that pessimism that hope is is going to be if I'm making such a huge investment is Is there going to be a return on the investment or not? Or will this business fail, there is hope. But if the business does fail, then
there is husband that I should have not done this and there is regret upon the past. When Allah subhanho wa Taala when he talked about the story or you were talking about the mother of Musa alayhis salam. He said Allah subhanho wa Taala that he put in her heart, let the hoffy Wallah has any you are fearful about the future and there is regret about the past. Do not worry about the future do not worry about the past in raw do who la ki wajah Illumina more studying, not only that feel is later Allah subhanho wa Taala says while also behalf who I do owe me Musa forever Allah subhanho wa Taala says that the mother that the heart of Musa as mother was full of anxiety in care
that Toby DB he or she was very close to disclosing Musa alayhis salam. Because when a mother is putting her own son in the water, no matter and she has no idea what animals can over you know what animals are in the water, what animals can harm the baby and she rather disclose that this is where Musa is, rather than have been in this idea or being in this thought that she has no clue where he is. She rather disclose him. Allah subhanho wa Taala says Lola a robot called beha Anita coolamon woman in the fact that she was a believer in Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah said that he kept her heart connected. Allah gave her the strength to overcome this issue. Meaning what that when we go
through problems in our life, if we are connected to Allah, the problem may not go away. But Allah will give us the ability to get through it. Allah will not put hope in our life. And when you and I when we are completely dependent upon Allah subhanho wa Taala than just like a child, you don't
When a child is standing at a high, elevated place, and they jump, and the Father is standing over there, he says jump. Now the very first thing that the child does is what he's hesitant. Right? He's hesitant. He doesn't want to jump, because he thinks he's looking down. And he's thinking that if I jump, what if my father doesn't catch me and the father and the mother standing there and they're say, jump, jump, jump, and then after a while, after a while, the child jumps, they jump with hesitation, but when the parents come and they pick them up, that child now has that European and that Iman, that whenever I jump, my parents are gonna be there to hold me, they're gonna be there to
catch me the second time, he doesn't think he doesn't flinch, he doesn't hesitate, they jump. Why? Because they know they have ima they have faith in the fact that when I jump, my parents will be there to hold me. Likewise. Likewise, when we put our trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. Then what happens is that even if we came across this kind of news at or for example, at work, that there are going to be layoffs. If I have my trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. I know that even if I get laid off in sha Allah, Allah will find a solution for me. That is what it means when you have Iman and when you have faith, when you know that there is absolutely no way that you will drown. Just like in
the story of in the story of the mother Musa alayhis salam. Allah gave her that guarantee. Let the hoffy wala Hasani in Radu, he could just simply say do not fear Do not grieve and that's it. But Allah subhana wa told her in raw do we promise we will ignite indeed there is no doubt in the fact we will return Musa to you. Likewise, when Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that you come close to me, and I will take care. In the same way when we are in the state of grief or when we are in a state of hope. We have no idea about the future, put your trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. Just like that child when they're jumping off, when they jumping from a high position, and they put their
trust in their parents. Likewise, put your trust in Allah subhanho wa taala. And just like that child knows that my parents will not let me fall on the ground. Likewise, Allah will not let you fall on the ground. Allah will not betray Allah will not let you go. But we need to have that Iman and Allah subhanho wa Taala we need to be close to Allah subhanho wa Taala we can never be under the impression that I'm coming closer to Allah and my problems are persisting, or my problems do exist. Remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala will find a way out. Go back to the story of the story of Heather when he put that wall back up. This was Allah subhanho wa Taala taking care of two orphans,
your team mainly hula mainly filled Medina, two orphans that they had wealth behind for them, that their father what kind of abou Houma salejaw that the righteous father, a man who is connected to Allah, Allah did not let go and Allah did not forsake that man. Even though he was not even on the face of this earth. A man had died yet Allah subhanho wa Taala took care of his children, when we are close to Allah subhanho wa Taala this is exactly what will happen. And now the question is, how do you and I we come close to Allah subhanaw taala? How do we build a relationship with Allah subhanho wa Taala the very first thing that we need to do is we take care of our core
responsibilities. We have to take care before we do the welfare, we have to take care of our for our what is our core responsibilities today, brothers and sisters, there are people who are coming to the budget every single day we're doing one or two things and we are neglecting the rest of our deen our a brother might we might be coming to a budget every single day, but will lie he is sad how many times I have to hear stories about families and what is going on in the homes of our community members. And these are people who are coming to the masjid every single day. The lack of disrespect the way we treat our families. You know how many times I've heard this over and over again. The
fathers are being heavily disrespectful to their wives using profanity in front of the children. What are we doing? What are we doing all this? This is why it is very important. Every aspect of our deen everything that we have learned from Rasulullah saw Salam it needs to be maintained. It is not something that we can just pick and choose in our deen and then we do them and that is it. We have to be we everything that Allah expects us to do. We do them after that. Once our photo is complete, then we jump to the nonprofit and this is where Allah subhanho wa Taala he says I could see that a person who takes care of the Freud and then they do the Nawab Phil and then they come close to me
and then I love that person. And when a person is loved by Allah Subhana Allah, when a person is loved by ALLAH SubhanA what Subhanallah what to Allah, Allah will always be there for that person.
And you have to truly believe in that. When Allah subhanho wa Taala go back to the story of Musa This is Musa coming to a body of water, a huge sea and Allah subhanaw taala is telling him fugly br Sawtell Baja. Now imagine if you and I came to a sea and we're being told that behind you is the enemy of Allah behind you is an island and Allah is telling Musa take your stick and hit it on the water logically makes absolutely no sense how will that benefit me if I take my stick and I keep on hitting on the water, it does nothing but Allah but Musala is some understood that when Allah tells you to do something, whether it makes sense or not, you do it.
You do it, he took that stick, whether it made sense to him or not, he hid it and Allah Subhana Allah took care of the rest. We do what we have to do. We have to come close to Allah and Allah subhanho wa Taala will never forsake us. If we truly believe in that, then inshallah Allah will take care of us. We make things will go on in our life. Remember, there are going to be people in our life will always want to try to harm us. They're always going to be people who will try to live upon us and may Allah take care of them. May Allah take care of those people who do one. But always remember that Allah subhanho wa Taala will not let you go and ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to give us
that, that strength, we ask Allah subhana wa COVID to give us that fortitude, we ask Allah subhana wa to give us the strength to get through the issue the challenges in our life. May Allah make us strong enough that we're able to navigate through these. And we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala that at the end of the day, May Allah give us the glad tidings, as he has promised in the Quran, that those people who say that they're Rob is Allah and they are steadfast upon this, that another is no other human melodica at the time of their death, Allah says that the angels will come and they will give them the glad tiding of what I learned The Hafele wallet has no that do not fear and do not grieve
and now there will be Jana ahead of you may Allah subhanho wa Taala makers for amongst those Bartok hola hola Anna welcome faithful and I'll leave when I find out what yeah to me it will kill Hakeem and stuff Lulu honey You're welcome. What he's saying was the manifesto Pharaoh in the hula for him
