many Mina most Nene too Lohana human hamdulillahi rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi Hajj mine. I know South Russia is late. Just show a quick reminder. I ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to make us amongst his very bad, those who listen to the word of Allah and those who implement at the best level at the highest level amenable Alameen so how Allah in the Quran Allah subhana wa Taala tells us that we all want one thing, we praise a lot, we read Quran we dedicate our lives to Allah subhanho wa Taala for what for only one thing and that is Janna. Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Jana does not come that cheap. You have to work hard. There are going to

00:01:02 --> 00:01:49

be times when your iman is put to test and you have to overcome those challenges. Allah subhanho wa Taala says so there Bacara M Huseby Tom and Ted the whole Jana what a magical masala Dina Hello Mina publikum masa tamale Betsa what Barah was Zulu, you will be shaken to your core at times. Now when we say the word shaken what does that mean? Something is unstable. Right now the ground is stable. So we're standing, if the ground became unstable and began to shake, we will also become unstable. And anything on this ground will become unstable. At times we are shaken to to our core to the extent that sometimes eemaan becomes shaken up or EMA, we begin to have doubts in our iman, we begin

00:01:49 --> 00:02:32

to accept that which Allah subhana wa Taala has made prohibited. And we began to overlook that which Allah subhanho wa Taala made lawful brothers and sisters, there is no doubt in the fact that we are living in a time where there are so many fitness, there are so many things that can destroy our iman. But what we have to remember is that we have to remind ourselves, we have to remind our children, educate our children, and we have to remain firm on the hook. Because if you and I we don't work hard. And if I say I'm a Muslim, Allah will protect my Iman, and I don't work hard for that, then this email will not be protected. This is why we do so much we work on our spirituality

00:02:32 --> 00:03:15

so we can remain on the hook. Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds us in subtle cough, about this group of young men, these youngsters that they sought refuge in the cave, why? Because their Iman was being put to test Allah subhanho wa Taala This is somewhat metaphorically a lesson and a message that even sometimes those who want to stick to the hug, they may have to separate themselves. They may be you know, they have to sometimes separate themselves from the rest of the pack just to keep the just to keep steadfast upon their Iman, just to maintain their Iman and not only that was Subhanallah we find even a similar situation. And sootel hudge Allah subhanho wa Taala and so to the

00:03:15 --> 00:03:58

* talks about the Sahaba in their state, that when they went to Makkah, they said to the to the uncle of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam that we will give refuge to this man and we will stick with this man and we will give him our support no matter what. And subhanAllah you know what the Prophet SAW Allah while he was sent him said to the Sahaba he never said that if I come to Medina and you give me refuge and you give me support, I will give you Medina there was no conditions made by Ross was a sunnah The only condition made by the Prophet alayhi salam was that it was Jana. That's it, though if you give me support and if you if I come and you show me your your

00:03:58 --> 00:04:36

assistance, and you help that inshallah Allah will give you Jana And subhanAllah at the end at the conclusion of the Battle of her name Subhanallah that's prophesied some was sitting with the Sahaba or the Allah or I know him, and he says that what do you want? And the Sahaba they said jasola you we know you did not make any conditions with us. You never made any promises promises with us. There's only one promise that you made. And that was Jana, the Sahaba realize that when you bring the Prophet SAW Salem, and if we were to bring the Prophet some into Medina, we may have to cut some ties, we may have to sever some relationships. But brothers and sisters, we see the same thing

00:04:36 --> 00:04:59

happening today. When a person stands on the side of Allah when a person has sides with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa send them when a person speaks out for what is hot when a person stands on the side of what Allah has made lawful. today. We live in a time that those kinds of people, they get criminalized in society. They get demonized in society. This is a society that we live in.

00:05:00 --> 00:05:52

When you stand up against fascia, when you stand up against a morality in society, you get called as a as an abnormal person. When you stand when we stand on the side of morality, when we stand on the side of HIA, we get called as abnormal. This is what's happening today. When I stand up for justice, I get labeled, I get criminalized. I am put down. When we stand up against injustice, the same thing is happening. Brothers and sisters, trends will always change. Practices in society will always change values will always change in society. But if there's one thing that cannot change, that is the principles of Allah subhanho wa Taala and a sticking to our deen we live in a time that

00:05:52 --> 00:06:39

Subhanallah today with so many of our children, with so many of our teenagers, they're hanging by the thread as Allah subhanho wa Taala and SOTL * says Wamena Nursey menyambut Allah Allah Herf there are people who are worshipping Allah on the edge for Osama who if Allah subhanaw taala gives them if Allah blesses them and hamdulillah they are devout worshippers of Allah subhanho wa Taala when a Saba who hires them on Nabhi in a Saba to fit na by fitna comes along their way, challenges and trip tribulations come along their way. In Calabar, Anna Waje, their hearts their turn away from Allah subhanho wa taala. This is not how we treat Allah, we have to stick to our deen And

00:06:39 --> 00:07:16

subhanAllah the Sahaba they understood this and they stuck with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, no matter what's going to happen to them, and no matter how many challenges they're going to have to go through, and this is why we study when you study Medina, we learn we learn exactly this, that when the Muslim when the property some came to Medina, they struggled economically significantly, to the point that there were times when the Prophet Selim he tried to take over some caravans and it was not like as if this is something wrong. It was something normal in society at that time. The problem some did not he did not endorse killing other people when the Sahaba they

00:07:16 --> 00:07:54

accidentally did kill some people he gave he was really upset with them. But the problem is when he did everything to cover to recover the economic losses in Medina the Muslims were in the state of poverty while the Jewish communities were in the state of richness that probably some the Sahaba understood what kind of difficulties we're gonna have to endure by taking honors who was a solemn, but when they did that, they knew that the promise was Jana, today brothers and sisters, if anything, if I need to console myself, what do I get? If I stick to the hook? What do I do if I stand up for the hub? If anything, we will inshallah get Jana, that is the Promise of Allah subhanho

00:07:54 --> 00:08:33

wa taala. And that promise is not going anywhere. And this is why this struggle is going to continue to go on. This struggle is going to be a lifetime of a struggle. Allah subhanho wa Taala will finish on this. Allah says, Yes, there will be through what for you. For you, that was Allah subhanaw taala has been lawful, that which Allah Subhana Allah has made halal, while hobby and that which is considered as filth, in morality, a lack of higher wrongdoings in society, they will never be equal, though even society will jump like a castle to the cubbies. Today, people we live in a society I said earlier, that they're giving preference to the wrong over what is right. Even a society says

00:08:33 --> 00:09:10

that we're not going to go with that. So always talk to our children. Let's remind our children and SubhanAllah. You know, I've come across parents that they say that we have to have sometimes such difficult conversations with our children, that I don't remember our father having that conversation with me when I was growing up overseas, perhaps. But that's the that's the time that we live in. We need to have those difficult conversations with our children. Otherwise, where will our children learn from? How will they stick to the Huck we have to have those difficult conversations and if I'm not willing to have that difficult conversation that you take into someone who is learned so this is

00:09:10 --> 00:09:46

why we have to always we're going to have to keep on working hard. This has been said earlier this is a lifetime of a struggle. And there's going to be different fitness different waves that are going to come and try to take away our iman take away the Iman of our children but we have to keep on sticking to the heart and stay remain steadfast. I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us feel amongst those who have is Tekamah May Allah subhanho wa Taala make us amongst those when Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the Lavina Palu la buena Allah from Mr. Como that they are steadfast upon that I ask Allah subhana wa to protect our iman May Allah subhanho wa Taala protect the Eman of our

00:09:46 --> 00:09:58

children of our upcoming generations. Ask Allah subhana wa Tada to keep them on the hook on the Quran on the teaching of the Quran and the teachings of Rasulullah saw Salam amenable Alameen exactly Mala Hey Assalamu aleikum wa barakato
