This is a good time where we can teach our kids very valuable lessons of life.

00:00:06--> 00:00:25

And this whole has that situation that's been taking place. The one thing that really brings tears to my eyes just to see how thankful and how much sugar and how much gratitude Wallahi these people in Gaza can teach you and I hear in the west

00:00:27--> 00:00:30

there was a child that was asked a question

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

Would you like to live?

00:00:34--> 00:00:39

Or the question was, what do you want? He says I would like to become a shaheed.

00:00:42--> 00:00:59

So the person asking the question said that you can stay alive or become shaheed you want to become shaheed. He says yes I rather become shaheed he goes why would you want to be should be Shaheed he says I least I know that if I become a shahid, I'll get bread in Jannah

00:01:01--> 00:01:02

Think about that for a moment.

00:01:03--> 00:01:08

That's all he wants. I just want bread in Jannah

00:01:09--> 00:01:15

Subhanallah you see, if you see photos, you see videos, where small children are crying.

00:01:16--> 00:01:25

They have wounds on their bodies. And there's an adult sitting next to them and he's saying what Paul Alhamdulillah

00:01:27--> 00:01:43

say Alhamdulillah say Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. And then after a while this small girl she says Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah. You see, people who have their houses are blown away. They have no place to live.

00:01:44--> 00:02:34

And when they're being asked the what do you do now? They say what has when Allah who went to work here? Well, Allah He I see videos after videos. And I think Allah subhanho wa taala. And we all should thank Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters, because when we look at their situation, we have no reason to be on thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada. These are children whose names are being written on their body before they go to sleep. In case no one can identify them after, after a certain incident that may take place. Do you and I, we ever go sleep in that situation? When people are being asked over there? What do you want? What do you want? That people aren't saying the adults

00:02:34--> 00:03:19

are saying? All I want is just a peaceful night of sleep? Because when I sleep at night, I don't know if I'm gonna wake up in the morning. I don't know if I'm gonna have to run mid sleep. Do you? And I think about it. When we go to sleep a night, no matter how much is some a phobia that may exist within our society, and overall around the world. But do you you and I do we sleep at night thinking like this? No, we sleep in our homes. Today, we are not worried about the things that our brothers and sisters and our younger children, our young children are thinking about in Gaza. And for those thin brothers and sisters, we need to teach first of all for us. This is a good time when

00:03:19--> 00:04:05

we see these kind of things. We say what Al Hamdulillah. And not only that, but while we are this is a time of the year where we can spot and spend some quality time with our kids. Show show our kids not the really horrific scenes, but show our kids look at these people who are getting together and they have nothing but they're saying Alhamdulillah let's teach our kids to learn how to say Alhamdulillah when when they go into the cause and they have so many clothes and they feel like I have nothing to wear no teach them say Alhamdulillah when they open up the refrigerator, and it is stocked from top to bottom. And they still say I have nothing to eat and they get upset about it.

00:04:06--> 00:04:51

Teach them show them. Look at these kids in Gaza. Look at these kids all over the world and what they have to live through. When they go to the restroom that little dirty. You go over the world or still Muslim living in very poor conditions. Who if you look at their restroom, you don't even want to go to the restroom. Teach them to say Alhamdulillah Wallah I saw a picture of three men. Each of them are missing a leg. They're on crutches, but they're sitting down and they have a very big smile have a beautiful smile on their face. And they're talking to each other. Today. Think about our own kids today. You know what causes them anxiety, not having dinner. What causes them anxiety is losing

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

their air pods. What causes them anxiety is that if they lose a friend on social media, this is what causes them anxiety. Let's teach our

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Kids brothers sisters, what true sugar is, this is a good time to teach them, show them so that when our kids grow up, they understand the importance of gratitude. Quickly Inshallah, I'm going to share with you four things that we learned from the Quran. When we when we talk about gratitude. The very first thing is Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned many verses of the Quran where at the end, he says, No unaccomplished Quran, I gave you such and such blessing. Perhaps you may be thankful mean that Allah subhanaw taala said that there are some people who are going to show their gratitude and there are some people who are not going to show their gratitude. When we look at once again when we

00:05:39--> 00:06:18

look at these brothers, sisters, these young children, our young children anniversa Wallahi, we should say Alhamdulillah to Allah subhanho wa Taala The second thing that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentioned in the Quran and when it comes to sugar is that he is sometimes puts us in a situation that then a reminds us to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala Listen to this verse of the Quran Allah says Call me yeah Muhammad wa salam say Omaha Salam remind them all prophets of salaam may unit may unit G komen Lulu Mathilde burry while body to do owner who target Rwanda who fear Allah subhana saying that imagine your sinister situation. Allah gave examples of the ship in the past

00:06:19--> 00:06:56

when people would travel by ship and there was a strong when there were high waves that would come about and you thought that you would lose your life or in our situation because we don't travel by ships. Imagine you're in a you're in an airplane and the pilot says buckle buckle your seatbelt, because we're gonna hit some air patches along the way and there's gonna be some turbulence and at that time you put away everything you put away your headphones, you put away everything and you don't say yeah Allah Allah Ya Allah. Why because you know that your our situation is purely in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala there is no one who can save us over that ocean over that sea but

00:06:56--> 00:07:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala so at that time, Allah says in that situation, let in and Jana min Javi then Hakuna Namir shackling, if we save you from that calamity, from that potential calamity, then Hakuna nomina *reen then hopefully this will remind you to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa taala. And often, you know, subhanAllah scholar said that when we talk about sugar, a lot of times we're only thinking about what Allah has given us and what we have. But imagine if you and I have even committed a sin, and no one knows about it. Who's the one who hid it? It is Allah subhanho wa Taala who hid that sin from everyone had people known in the community of the sin that you and I we

00:07:39--> 00:08:20

committed, we may not be able to show our face in the community, we may not be able to show our face to our friends, our family members and so forth. Sometimes even in those kinds of situations. We need to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he has protected our dignity he has protected our visa. Another aspect of looking at Sugar and gratitude is Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What can extra Nursey law Yes, Quran. This is a common verse that we find in the Quran. The most people are not thankful to Allah subhana what to Allah, Allah says another verse work on Ehlo minute Reba dia Shaco, there is only a handful of people. There are very few people who are truly thankful to Allah

00:08:20--> 00:09:03

Subhana Allah to Allah and another verse, Allah says so beautifully he says, listen to this, he says well thought of Allah who methylene periactin Allah gives us an example of a community cannot Minuten they were safe, they were safe. And this in itself is a blessing from Allah subhanho wa taala. This is why Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he says, Man us Bahaman come and mean and feast will be whoever spends the morning and they are. They are in a state of peace and security within the confines of their home. More often feed yesterday and they have health in their body and so forth. In the WHO Kuta young me and they have the provisions of that one day *a nama. He is at

00:09:03--> 00:09:32

LaHood dunya is as if they have the entire dunya when you look our brothers sisters and Philistine Versa, many of them don't have anything. And many of us here many of us here, the majority of us here we have all these three things. Waking up in the morning when you have your family around is Wallahi a blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala I saw a video there was a child who was asked, What do you want? You know what the child said? He says I don't I just want to know if my father is alive or not.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

That's all he said. I just want to know if my mother is alive or not. Will he brothers and sisters once again we have so much to be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala for so Allah says, I give you the example of a city or group of people they live in peace and security. And then Allah says cannot attend mohtarma in de risco ha Radha min Colima can Allah has given them in providing them sustenance from everywhere for coffee

00:10:00--> 00:10:45

Far Right be anomala instead of being thankful to Allah subhana wa Tada, they were ungrateful to Allah subhanho wa taala. As a result of them showing their ingratitude to Allah, Allah says further Pahala who lead by sell jewelry will hopefully be my account on your song as a result of their actions. Allah subhanho wa Taala brought upon them hunger and fear upon them, Allah affected them from a financial perspective. There they were, they suffered financially, but also in terms of security, they also suffered, when we have things we may not have the best, but when it comes to our blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala we don't compare ourselves to those who have we always compare

00:10:45--> 00:11:25

ourselves to those who don't have and finally we find in the Quran also Allah subhanho wa Taala he says, Welcome in a shack it in be amongst those who are thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala and the best way to show our gratitude to Allah is m one St. Alhamdulillah. Number two is understanding that even what we don't have, it may be from the Rama the Mercy of Allah subhana wa Taala also understanding the way we can show our gratitude to Allah is to our worship is true staying away from the things that Allah subhanaw taala has made haram Yes, brothers sisters, this is also a way to show our gratitude to Allah subhanho wa Taala staying in the confines within our Shetty is a test

00:11:25--> 00:12:06

from Allah subhanho wa Taala but this is us telling Allah subhanho wa Taala that Ya Allah, I value every single blessing that you have given me. And as a result of that I stay within the confines of our Sharia. Yet you and I we go so many times out of the boundaries of our Sharia, we commit haram and you get ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala he has not taken away the blessings you and I we have think about if you and I committed a sin and Allah took one's eyesight away and we come in other sin and Allah took another eyesight away and every sin that you and I we commit, Allah took away one blessing at a time when Allah we will be deprived of all the Rama and the blessing of Allah subhanho wa Taala but

00:12:06--> 00:12:50

Allah is not that type. Allah gives and he gives and he gives an even we come in since Allah subhanho wa Taala he does not take away this is why we show our graduate to Allah subhanho wa Taala everything that we have the money that we have, the eyes that we have the limbs that we have every single head, every single good that you and I we have brothers and sisters, that that the attitude of a believer, as Imam Ghazali mentions, the attitude of a believer is whatever I have, whatever Allah has given me, I will use it to please Allah subhana wa Taala that is called Sugar and that is called gratitude. So I conclude on this May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us sugar may Allah subhana

00:12:50--> 00:13:27

wa Taala make us from the shackling. Allahumma anemia check it in May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us more I ask Allah subhana wa Tada all those who are going through any kind of challenges, may Allah subhanaw taala alleviate their challenges. Ask Allah subhana wa Taala for our brothers and sisters in Gaza, and not only in Gaza, but our Muslim brothers and sisters in India, in China and wherever they may be whatever they are oppressed, our Muslim brothers, sisters, wherever they may be May Allah subhanho wa Taala help them may Allah subhanaw taala aid them may Allah subhanaw taala provide them his most amenable Allah mean what is Akuma Allah Hi Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa
