So I'm already gonna play with regard to Mr. Nahum no 100 Allah COVID alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Marine. First of all is great to Michelle. see everyone again,

00:00:13--> 00:00:48

does Akuma hair there are a lot of people who called a lot of people who did things during this time Allah subhanaw taala bless you all. This is why this community is such an amazing community. Because we always have each other's backs and we always are looking after each other. So Allah is so glad so I'm so happy to see everyone again at hamdulillah ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada all those who are sick, may Allah subhanho wa Taala give them Shiva May Allah Azza wa give them cure, and all those who are not seeking Allah Subhan Allah protect them. I mean, no, but I mean, in the time of the Hanford hamaca the conquest of Makkah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is sitting with obika The

00:00:48--> 00:01:29

Allah on and people are coming to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa salam and they're accepting Islam. And at that time, a smug interview Booker, the daughter of obika, the hola Juan is bringing her grandfather with her a HOFA. At that time, he was a Muslim. And since he was blind Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam this goes to show you that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he tells her bucket of the hola Juan that this is not right. He's an elderly man, he's blind. I would have rather gone to him than him come all coming all the way to me. This goes to show you how much respect Rasulullah sallallahu is I'm had for the seniors of his community. So the province at that

00:01:29--> 00:02:13

time Ibaka the Allah on he said he has so long it is more fitting that he comes to you than you go to him. Then he talked to Oklahoma for some time. And a book ahava decided to accept Islam, and he accepted Islam. And while they were taking while he was taking the shahada, the Prophet sallallahu it was Sun was very happy, of course, because someone is taking their shahada On the contrary, obika really Allah Juan was sitting there, and he had tears rolling down from his from his eyes. And the Prophet sallallahu it was some asked, Oh, Bucher, isn't this a happy moment for you that your father is accepting Islam? Perhaps he's on the verge at the end of his life. And now he's at least he's

00:02:13--> 00:02:56

accepting Islam. And at that time, Albuquerque hola Juan, he said something very profound. He says yeah, to Allah, I know that in this place, if it was a boo Taalib it would have brought you so much more happiness and peace to your heart. Now I want you to understand why he said that, because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam took it very much hard upon his heart. When a book Pali rejected the idea of converting to Islam on his deathbed. It was that time when ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada revealed the ayat in Nicola demon above what I can Allah Yeah, the human Yasha It is not up to you, that you get to decide who to give hidayah to he Daya and guidance is only in the hands of Allah

00:02:56--> 00:03:40

subhanho wa taala. And he gives that guidance to whoever he wants. So it becomes the it becomes our responsibility to make the effort. The results are in the hands of Allah subhanho wa taala. But what this also goes to show us is that the fact that Abu Talib and Abu Kochava they came from the same kind of like generation. These were two people are at their prime. They did not accept Islam, Allah Hoffa did not accept Islam. In fact, when the Prophet SAW Salem, he might he made hijra with obika, You Allah on to Medina, and Abu Kochava came to the house at that time he was blind. And he even asked, What has your father left for you. And at that time, a Smeb into the bucket. She there was a

00:03:40--> 00:04:24

bag full of rocks, and she she looked at, and he heard the noise. And he thought that perhaps he has left some coins and some money left behind for the family. But he was adamant against Islam. But now today he's converting to Islam, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is happy. This is a key thing. He's happy for obika The hola Juan. Now why did I choose this story? Because today's Subhanallah one thing that I have seen very common, when I talk to people when I converse with other people, when people call me, one thing that causes a lot of stress to our heart, that brings sadness to our heart is is what I'm about to say. It may seem cliche, it may not seem real, but it is a

00:04:24--> 00:04:30

reality. And what brings sadness and stress to many of our hearts, is to see other people successful

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

is to see other people moving forward in life. You probably wanted that job so bad. It was there was an opening you applied for it. Someone else applied for it and they got it. You worked so hard behind your child and you see someone else's child succeeding. You wanted a car so bad and you see another person driving that car and you feel like they have done nothing to achieve that they have done nothing to have that car and so forth. When we see

00:05:00--> 00:05:47

other people happy, it brings stress to our hearts. So here are four things today I want to share with you that perhaps we can do Inshallah, to bring some happiness and relief and bring some peace and serenity to our hearts. Number one is we have to be grateful to Allah subhanho wa Taala Walla he what we have today, there are millions of people who would wish and they wish and they are envy of what we have. Yet today we don't see what we have. We only look at what we don't have. We find in the Quran the shocker is not only what we have, sugar is also what Allah has protected us from. And sunnah Ibrahim Allah subhanho wa Taala this is this very well known ayah Allah in Chicago termed as

00:05:47--> 00:06:28

Eden Netcom. This comes after an idea where Allah is reminding money, you start you have their challenges and their struggles, which tells us that even knowing the fact that I still have an eye that I can see I have legs, I can walk with, I have hands I can grab with, and I could be in a much worse situation, that in a social bring some greatness to a heart and bring some thankfulness in our hearts for Allah subhanho wa taala. This second thing that we need to do is that we need to be happy for others. Think about it. I'm at home, I'm stressed out. I'm you know, my heart is being constricted. Why? Because he's someone else happy and that person goes home, and they're happy,

00:06:28--> 00:07:06

they're able to have a good night's sleep. But I'm sitting at home and I and I'm flipping and turning and turning this side and that side. Why because I cannot feed it find peace and happiness we find from the Sahaba the Allahu Anhu. Think about all the Sahaba every single Sahabi had one Felina over another. The prophets I send them will say something positive about once a hobby, and he will not say something about it as a hobby. But the other, the other Sahaba did he become envious of one another? No. There were times when the Sahaba they would come forward, we find in that battle of aha, how Rasulullah sallallahu Sameena Sahaba. The Sahaba does so much for us wa sallahu wa salam,

00:07:06--> 00:07:42

but the Sahaba were always encouraging one another, they were not holding each other back, but they were pushing each other forward. And they were happy for each other and how much they're willing to do for each other's cause. So that's why we need to learn how to bring some happiness because at the end of the day, who gave them that blessing it is Allah who gave them that blessing. And if we want that blessing, we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala because we find also in the hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam that when you make dua for others, the angels, they make the same dua for you, when I see someone happy, and they have something, do not become hatred towards them, do not have

00:07:42--> 00:08:27

that jealousy towards them. Because this is exactly what we saw from Shaytaan. This is what we saw from Belize. Instead of recognizing the status of automatic Islam. The first thing he said was an aha, you don't mean Calacatta phoneminer wa Calacatta Humann thing. So be happy for another make dua for one another. And the third thing is do not be envious. Brothers and sisters being envious is the first step towards hatred. being envious, is a first step towards backbiting, hatred, and Malossi and jealousy and so forth. And then this loser leads to soul, and soul, love, and vile character and so forth. That's why the very first thing is we stay away from envy, we stay away from jealousy. And

00:08:27--> 00:09:10

this is why we also learn from a hadith of Rasulullah. Salah is someone found in Timothy, that anyone who rejoices at the misfortune of someone listen to this very carefully. Anyone who rejoice is at the misfortune of someone else. Perhaps Allah subhanho wa Taala will remove the distress from that person, and he can put that on you. And he can put that on any one of us. That's why we need to stay away from this envy. And the last thing I will say is that do not show any kind of hatred. You know, many times unfortunately, in the Muslim community, what I have seen all my years on my life is that if there's one group that they see the other group moving forward, they will pull them down. If

00:09:10--> 00:09:49

I cannot move forward, I will make sure someone else does not move forward. If I cannot advance, I'll make sure someone else cannot advance. And subhanAllah This brings me to the story of the crab. If you don't know the story of the crab, let me tell you the story of the crab. A man came to a pet talent show. Okay, he came to a pet talent show. Everyone brought their pets. This man who brought two crabs. What did he do? He dug up a hole in the ground. He threw both crabs in there. Someone asked him that these crabs will crawl out and they will go away. You got to, you know, build a barrier around it. Put something around it. He goes there's no worry. Just watch. As people were

00:09:49--> 00:10:00

watching as one crab was trying to get out. The other crab would pull him down. As one crab would try to get out. The other crab will pull him down. It has become unfortunate Paul

00:10:00--> 00:10:36

Part of the Muslim community today, one organization trying to pull down another organization, groups of people tried to pull down other groups individual tried to pull down as a group other individuals. This is not the nature of a Muslim community. If I cannot move forward, I will help someone else move forward. If I cannot advance I will help someone else advance. If I cannot do it, then I will help someone else do it. This is the nature of a Muslim. What the Iowan or Bibi what Toccoa Walla, Iowa is me what are the one so I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to first of all give us ability to be happy at other people's achievements and other people's success. And we ask Allah

00:10:36--> 00:11:06

subhanho wa Taala if someone else has something that we want, of course, we're human beings. Of course we want to be successful. Of course we want the best in our life. If we see someone having that we ask Allah subhana wa Taala to not take it away from them, and to let them have it and give them more and give us to us more if it's good for us in our dunya and akhira. And ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Tala to bring peace and happiness to our hearts. I'm eatable aalameen Dr. moolah had a Salam Alikum Abdullah he bottle Catherine in
