Let's go back to the life of the prophet that Allahu Allah he was setting them the 10th year of prophethood, not the 10th you have to Hijra the 10th. Year of prophethood. The Prophet sallallahu it was someone's in Makkah, just right there before just two, three years before that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam got out of a very difficult situation, a difficult three years, that which was known as the social the social boycott against the Muslims, the Prophet sallallahu it was I was able to get through that. Now it's two, three years later. This year in Sierra is known as the year of prison, the year of grief and sorrow. I'm one husband Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa

00:00:35--> 00:01:14

sallam, he loses his uncle, and he loses his wife Khadija, the Allahu Taala on him. These were two people who were the greatest supporters of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, especially when it came to the years, the three years of boycott of Abu Tolly played a very important role in helping us allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there was a time that he put his trust in Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and even at that time, he may have had doubts. But when he went through this entire process, he put his trust in Allah salAllahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was never turned away. I mean that his trust was never lost. But then the year comes, this is the year where he lost

00:01:14--> 00:01:54

his uncle, he lost his wife, and now Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he's thinking to himself, how is he going to live in the city. And then he goes out, trying to look for support, trying to look for any type of support. He goes to Paul, if and we know the story of Thor, if he goes there, he is rejected from thrive. And then now he comes back into Makkah. And he's not even able to stay in Makkah as a Moroccan citizen, but rather he has to live under the protection of someone else. Think about this for a moment. It is as if the country where you were born in that citizenship of that country has been revoked from you. That's what that means. Because it probably

00:01:54--> 00:02:35

your son was born where in America, but now he cannot live in Mecca, even though he comes from a very prestigious family. But now his citizenship has been revoked. And now the poverty is some is living under someone else's protection. So this was a state of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam think about all the challenges that are coming on with allah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. And at that crucial time in his life, Allah subhanho wa Taala granted Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, one of the greatest gifts, which was an assault with Raj. And on this particular night, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam received the greatest gift, which was the gift of salaat, the

00:02:35--> 00:03:17

gift of solid. So it's as if Allah subhanho wa Taala is telling us was a Salam. Whether you're talking about financial loss, whether you're talking about social loss, that you lost social support, whether you're talking about outside external support, no one's willing to give you and show you any kind of support, you feel like that you are a stranger in that land. You feel like all the pressures coming on you. The solution to all your problems is converting and communicating with Allah subhanho wa Taala through the salad, solving your problems through the salad. Now, why am I talking about this? Number one is we are in the month of Rajab, right now. And according to a

00:03:17--> 00:03:56

majority of the historical accounts, the night of Izawa Mirage took place in the month of Rajab, but I don't want to make this about Ali Sowell Mirage, I want to talk about this solid thing. And the reason why I want to talk about this is just few weeks ago, I was actually cleaning out my books and so forth. And I came across a book, which I wrote my notes for my teachers. And in the book, I remember there was a written note written and Subhanallah, I came across his book, and I just sat there just reading through my teachers notes, and some of the anecdotes that they would provide us. And I remember one thing our teacher told us, he said, that people will come to Him, He's a chef, of

00:03:56--> 00:04:40

course, he taught, he taught us, you know, he taught us Sunni, Muslim, and so forth. And he said that people would come to him and say that what do we need to teach our children? Now we're talking about many years ago, but he asked this question to us to that what would you say if someone came to you and asked you, what is the most important thing we need to teach our children and at that time, he told us that he was sharing with us that the scholars of the past our predecessors, our Alma, they will write in their books, that the thing that is lost in the upcoming generations is that kids do not know how to ask Allah through their slot, or kids do not know how to access the treasures of

00:04:40--> 00:04:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala through their slots. And so our teacher was telling us that Samad is the way to connect to Allah subhanho wa Taala if that connection is severed, how am I supposed to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala but then he was telling us that for the problem is that parents

00:05:00--> 00:05:43

are also not teaching their kids that the important way to ask Allah is through the salaat see one is a dua we fall into problems right away we'll pick up the phone give me a DUA, dua for us. We think it's a quick fix. Okay. We feel like it's a quick fix Rasulullah saw some did not use to us as a quick fix. It wasn't instant solutions today retreating to us in this way. Let me read this one quickly. Hello Ozma all my problems will be gone. No, that doesn't. That is not the way it works. We first have to do the basics, the basic is solid, solid is the way to connect to Allah subhanho wa taala. Once the connection has been established, then I can read these two hours and I can connect

00:05:43--> 00:06:28

to Allah subhanho wa taala. And this is why it is mentioned that people who do not worship Allah, people who are not punctual about Salat, when they ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, then the angels they say that this is a very foreign voice, but when a person is always connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala and then they make dua, the angels I say that this is a very familiar voice. So our teacher was telling us that today the parents, we need to teach our children that whenever you have any problem, you ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and not just by making a dua reading just one quick dua but no, make don't make perform Moodle perform will do correctly, pray to raka salad and ask

00:06:28--> 00:07:11

ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala and then our teacher told us a very interesting story. He says that where he used to study he studied from India and so forth. He said that there was a mother, she wanted to teach her child that the only way you will get something is by asking ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala so every single day this child would come home and he would you know he was hungry. The mother will say that your risk comes from Allah subhanho wa Taala you want your lunch you pray, make will do pray to Dhaka salad and you ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala for food. So this child he had a routine every single day, he will come back from school he will make will do he will pray to Dhaka Salah while He was

00:07:11--> 00:07:57

praying the to raka salad, the mother will come put down the sofa, put down the food, he will pray His Torah Casa come out and the food was there. But this mother wants to teach her child a very important lesson. And that is that you have to learn how to connect with Allah and take from Allah subhanho wa Taala through your salad. One day Coincidently, one day Coincidently, this mother she was running late. This child came home. And he came on his normal schedule normal routine, and every single day, even if he knows in the back of his mind, even though if it knows in the back of his mind that my mother is the one who is you know, preparing the stuff right and so forth. But he did

00:07:57--> 00:08:08

what he was supposed to do. The mother is at home, but the child comes home. He prays to that he makes although prays to Dhaka salad, and he comes outside and there's a sofa out

00:08:10--> 00:08:55

there the sofa out and he eats his food. The mother comes she's worried because if when mom because she's in the back of her mind, she's thinking that how will she get us so fresh, there's no one to put that sofa down. My son is going to lose his European and Allah subhanho wa Taala my son is going to lose his trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala he will lose his trust in salad. When that mother came back and she asked her son, did you eat the sunset? I ate and she's a How did you eat? She said that you Mother You taught me make Lulu pray to La Casa I went inside I asked Allah when I came outside. There was food here ready for me. That day the mother said, I have now taught my son how to ask

00:08:55--> 00:09:36

Allah subhanho wa Taala I've taught my son how to connect to Allah through the salad today. This is something that we don't do. Whenever our children come and ask us that I need help with this. Ask Allah subhanho wa Taala then everything comes afterwards. We have to teach our children that when you have problems at school, when you need help when you want anything, pray to that cost a lot and then as parents will come and help and help you out and get whatever you need. But first learn how to ask ALLAH SubhanA what to Allah, this is something that is lost. I remember our teacher was telling us if today the kids know how to connect with Allah, and they know how to take from the

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

treasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala through their salon. He then said majority of our problems will be solved. But today with this the only connection that we have with Allah through the salon, that connection in most cases is severed. How do you expect us to connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is why brothers and sisters when it comes to salads, we've talked about salad we hear about the salad, but think about this, no matter no matter how many times you may say

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

You know what I've heard this Hatha before. If you think that the repetition of the subject of sloth is something that's unnecessary, then what do you say when Allah subhanho wa Taala says dozens of times of people Salah Zakka Hakim was Salah to Zakka. Someone could say why is Allah keep on repeating the same thing because Allah knows that despite the fact that this has so much power in it, this is the one thing that this ummah is going to leave out. So this is why, let's learn from these stories. Let's learn from the seed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and let's teach our kids also, anytime you have any problem, pray to raka Assad and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala and

00:10:38--> 00:10:49

ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala sincerely, and you watch Allah subhanho wa Taala most certainly he will help inshallah I ask Allah subhana wa Tada to better still fit this aqua Mala Hey, I said I'm already going to label our cattle

00:10:51--> 00:11:09
