Mr. Lai Rahman Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah de Muhammad Wallah. Earlier he was a big marine about so everybody night now inshallah we are taking one idea or two ideas of the Quran that start off with you Halina Avenue where Allah subhanho wa Taala is addressing the believers. In today's segment we are covering is number 153 from sutra Bacara Allah subhanho wa Taala He says, Yeah, Johan levy in history in OB psalmody was salah.

00:03:13--> 00:03:59

We seek the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala through Saba in solid, and Verily Allah is with those who have patience. Now before we get into this idea is very important to understand that what is around this idea? What is before this idea and what is Allah talking about? Allah subhanho wa Taala brings this idea after he talks about the changing of the Qibla Allah subhanho wa Taala in sort of baccarat at the very beginning of the second Jews, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about how he changed the qibla, from Jerusalem, to Mecca. And as a result, this was of course, a test from Allah subhanho wa taala. And to see who is on the right path and who is not on the right path, who is

00:03:59--> 00:04:41

willing to listen to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and who is willing to object to the Prophet SAW Salem. And so there were of course, the Sahaba they gave into the Prophet SAW Salem, they whatever the problem is, I'm told them they did, and the Jews of Medina, the yahood, they objected to Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and this in itself was a very big move for the Muslim ummah, for the Muslim ummah. This was sort of Allah establishing its status, because when you talk about any country, when you talk about any nation, the most important thing that the first establish is the capital of that nation. Allah subhanho wa Taala is establishing the capital for the

00:04:41--> 00:05:00

entire Muslim world. There from now on it is going to be MCCA towards Mecca, we're going to pray and that is where we perform Hajj and Umrah so therefore ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada since he's establishing this, Allah is then telling us that I have made you OMA of Rasulullah Salah

00:05:00--> 00:05:48

While he was salam, the greatest among you are the superior OMA, yes, Allah in the Quran he does say that remember he talks about but he saw in that he made them above all the nations. But that is that was a time. Allah now says in the Quran going to Hydra OMA, you are the best of the nations. Now when the OMA of Muhammad is the best of the nations. It is very, it is obvious and is natural that the Ummah of Muhammad is going to go through a lot of difficulties. They're going to be tested and they're going to be put through adversity. And when you study the OMA of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, yes, we believe in Allah. Yes, others don't believe in Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:05:48--> 00:06:32

But when you say the Sierra and the history of Islam, Muslims have gone through a very an enormous amount of challenges, but never will the OMA of the province of salaam be wiped out because of any challenge because of the dua of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, even today as we speak. Today, the Muslim world is suffering somewhere in some place. We know what is happening to our Muslim brothers and sisters in Burma. We are in Rohingya. We know what's happening in with the with the Uighur Muslims, just due for yesterday there was a presentation on this matter. And it's mind boggling that how much persecution torture is being conducted against our Muslim brothers and

00:06:32--> 00:07:16

sisters. What is happening in Palestine and Philistine for so many decades for so many decades. We know what is happening, what happened in Bosnia, we know what is happening in Syria. We know what's happening in all these countries. And the question is the why is Allah putting us through this? And Allah subhanho wa Taala within his own infinite wisdom, he understands why the Muslim ummah is going through this, but Allah understands that we want answers, we want solutions. So Allah subhanho wa taala, he gives us a solution automatically in this idea. He says that if you want my help, then first of all, you want my help, there is something that you're going to have to do. And the reason I

00:07:16--> 00:08:05

say this is because the word is stirring, you know, is a same word that is used in certain Fatiha when Allah says er, canabal, do what? yakka NuSTAR in what is necessary mean? Net steady does not only mean that, Oh Allah, we want your help. But Allah is saying that you want my help. This this word Nestor, in comes the word esteana which means a type of help that Allah is willing to give, but there is something that we have to do first. So Allah subhanho wa taala. He says that if you want my help, I'm willing to help you. But on your end, there's two things that you must do. Number one is that you must be patient. You have to be patient. In fact, Imam humble Rahmatullah Allah he says

00:08:05--> 00:08:52

that without he says that were who were YG wouldn't be eg Mara. He says Saba, and to be patient is wajib upon a Muslim, and he says that there are two aspects of our deen. One is silver and one is sugar. And this concept or this idea, or I would say, the statement of Imam Ahmed humble Rahmatullah Ali also coincides with a hadith of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, where in the Prophet Allah is some he says, how amazing I Jabon the unreal movement. How amazing is the situation of a believer in Umrah hula hula who hired well he said, luckily I had an ill moment of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says how amazing is the state of the believer that no matter what state

00:08:52--> 00:09:32

he is in, it is good for him. What does that mean? It means that whether we are going to if we're going through prosperity, if we're going through good times, the Prophet SAW, some says in a saw, but who saw raw Shachar off Acana heilala. We're in Asaba, to the raw SOBOROFF Acana heilala. The Prophet alayhi salam says they if he's going through good times, and he's thankful to Allah, this is good for him. And he's if he's going through difficult times, and he's patient, then this is also good for him. And what that means is this, that a lot of times when you and I are going through difficulties in life, we believe and we think that there is nothing that I'm gaining out of this.

00:09:32--> 00:10:00

Yes, I have to be patient. Allah wants me to be patient. So hey, Allah, I impatient, but what do I get out of this? The Prophet saw some say that no, the fact that you are patient, Allah subhanho wa Taala is elevating our status. The fact that we are being patient, Allah subhanaw taala is rewarding. So no matter what the situation is, if we are truly thankful, and we are truly patient in times of difficulty, Allah

00:10:00--> 00:10:47

subhanho wa Taala will always be there with us. And this is why in this passage at the very end, what Allah say Alladhina either I saw but who masiva when these people they are afflicted with a, a pain, or a torment or some bad news, and they say in the law you are in a garage, your own that we belong to Allah, that means that we are going to have our iman and ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala that Allah says, Allah Iike I lay him Salah tone Mirabai him Rama upon them is going to be Allah's peace and blessings upon these kinds of people. And what will go home will Dune, this is so important, Allah subhanaw taala saying that if you're a patient, and you seek the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:10:47--> 00:11:29

through the salaat, then Allah subhanaw taala says that these people, these people, they are going to be guided. So I want to talk more about this, this concept of sovereign that Allah subhanho wa Taala he mentioned in the Quran, even a paymill Josie Rahmatullah Ali. He says that when you study the Quran, there are so many aspects of Sabah that are linked with other aspects of our deen mean that the concept of Sabbath is linked with other aspects of our deen for example, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala he links sabar with Salaat he says that he will be somebody was salah, in another place in the Quran, he links sabar, with doing righteous deeds. He says in Alladhina Sadhguru I mean the salah

00:11:29--> 00:12:15

heart, and another place in the Quran, Allah has linked Sadar with taqwa in the case of use of aluminium. What do you say in the humane yet who is with whoever is patient and they have Toccoa Taqwa means that they are focused on Allah subhanho wa Taala not that they're going through a difficulty and they forget about Allah subhanaw taala No, this was not used for Allah you Salam go back and say the story of us fighting Islam. This is a man who was wrongfully wrongfully incriminated. Wrong charges false charges were against use of Islam, and he went to prison, and he stayed in prison. Now imagine today you have an innocent man in prison. Today, our sympathy goes out

00:12:15--> 00:13:04

to that man, use of Islam, an innocent man, a prophet of Allah, he is in prison. And not just only for few years the Quran says philosophy Sydney be the Aussie Nene many years yet when he came out, did he go after those people? Did he do? Did he go after those people while he was in there in prison, de turn against Allah subhanho wa taala. In fact to men come inside the present and use of Allah you sound fulfills his obligation as a believer to call them to Allah subhana wa Tada. This is why at the end, he says, In who may yet who is with whoever is patient, and whoever has Taqwa for in Allah Allah you will the origin mercy, Allah will never let her effort go to waste. Even Are you

00:13:04--> 00:13:50

mentioned that Southern has been linked with sugar in the field Erica? Technically suberin Shaku Allah he says that Southern has been linked with enjoying good. This is something that a lot of times we have to go through Allah subhanho wa taala. He says, well, also in Santa Fe, Hassan everyone, every single human on the face of the earth is in the state of Cassara. They are in the state of laws, except for a handful of people. That means that if I assess my life, and I'm not doing one of these things, I'm in the state of loss. Who are those people in LA Latina, Manu, those people who believe in Allah? Well, I'm gonna solve your heart, and they do righteous deeds

00:13:50--> 00:14:36

whatsoever. So Bill Huck, and they enjoin towards good and they bring us to the hot water well, so this summer, and they encourage and they bring others to suborn. So this is what Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions here in this surah Allah, Allah also linked sabar with Rama, his Rama in the Quran, Allah says what a while so be somebody what aware. So Bill marhaba and finally, Allah subhanho wa taala. He mentioned those who have Subhan Allah mentioned that Allah will give them an enormous amount of reward in the hereafter. What does Allah subhanho wa Taala say about those people who have SUBUD he says, In NAMA, you are first Bobby Runa Jerome. Now listen to this, Allah subhanaw taala

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

saying that we will give a full share of reward to those people who have patience in this dunya is that the end of the ayah Allah says, Be Lady He sub without any accountability. There is Eileen even Hussein. He says that Allah subhanho wa Taala on the Day of Judgment, he's going to gather everyone

00:15:00--> 00:15:42

And, and there is going to be a call, who are those who are patient, and they will enter into Jana without any accountability. A group of people who will stand, a group of people will stand, and they will say, Where are we going? And there will be say, and there'll be told that you're going to Jana. And they will say before, he said, I mean, everyone is waiting, because this is exactly what will happen on the Day of Judgment, before the accountability starts. before Allah holds people accountable. Before all the people who are destined to go to Jannah. without any accountability, there'll be first sent to John now, there'll be first step to Jannah and then the accountability

00:15:42--> 00:16:20

will begin as many orlimar have mentioned. So what will happen is that these people will be taken away and as they're going away, some people will stop them and say the where are you going? We're still waiting here for our southern Where are you going? And they will be told and they will say that we are going to Janna without any hisab and they will ask why. What did you do? And they will say that in this dunya we were patient. We went through somewhere we when ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala asked us and he demanded from us to be patient, we will most certainly patient for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is why we're so behind on what Allah he says about sober now Allah says in

00:16:20--> 00:17:03

your Nadine Ave is the in who be somebody was salah. Now Salah here could mean Salat like we face a lot. So it could also mean dua that means that there are so many Duels of the prophets of salaam that we can do as the Prophet alayhi salam, we see in a hadith, what is said about the Prophet alayhi salam that either has Abba who Imran Salah when any matter that was very difficult upon the prophets of salaam that came upon him, he will resort to salad, salad brothers and sisters is what gives us energy. When you and I when difficulties come upon us. When we see the OMA going through difficulties and it hurts us. It hurts us of course, then we of course were patient, but what gives

00:17:03--> 00:17:47

us the energy to move forward? It is solid that gives us the energy to move forward. Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, what would it give him energy to go out every single day and face his opposition. It was a night when he was standing up for piano lane, and he will connect with Allah subhanho wa Taala that was his time when he will refuel. That was his time when he will gain to help Allah subhanho wa Taala and not only the prophet, but every single other Nabhi that came into this dunya they would pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala and that was fuel for them. Brothers and sisters when we have difficulties, and we go to Allah subhanho wa Taala with our Salah Allah has held comes

00:17:47--> 00:18:30

by the same time, it is also very important to remember that just like you and I, when we don't like how many people come to us in our life, and they don't care, they don't even call us they never ask questions, but only when they need something from us, then they will come and be nice to you sometimes, or sometimes they will do you a favor because they want something in return. Right? And none of us we'd like that it is very it shows as the selfish nature. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he gives and he gives and he gives. Now when it comes to the person, let's say there's a person who never prayed a lot. He never prayed a lot. And then now the time comes that

00:18:30--> 00:19:12

he needs help. And he says, Oh Allah, Oh Allah and he begins to pray. Will Allah subhana wa Taala turn him away? No Allah subhanaw taala not turn them away. In case there are some cases where Allah subhana wa Taala will make him ask even more. There are some cases where Allah subhanaw taala will give him immediately. But Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, that there are people and do not become like these people Allah tells us, but he says what either my son in Sun will run Donnelly Jambi, he called me then Oh call Eema there are people on the face of the earth that when afflictions come to them, the honor they call unto us, they call us as party then I'll call you my

00:19:12--> 00:19:56

meaning and every single state they're praying to us. Then you'll see this person bring extra sunnah you see this person praying external welfare. You see this person giving more sadaqa more Quran more everything. Why? Because he's going through a difficulty. But then Allah says Allah Maka Schaffner. I know Dora maraca Allah Mia, the owner Illa Deray Mercer but when we remove that difficulty for him from him, he returns the way he was. Allah subhanho wa Taala makes us aware that there are people like that we should never become like that. We should always we praise a lot. Why do we you and I we pray a lot. We pray a lot because we have to whether I'm getting something from my salad or not, we

00:19:56--> 00:19:59

cannot be selfish about this. This is a command from ALLAH SubhanA

00:20:00--> 00:20:39

No, it's either that you have to have to pray solid. And when Allah says in the Quran, seek the help of Allah through solid. It does not mean that you come and you pray your thyroid and seek the help of Allah through your for oil, fry, there's something that we have to do is what we have to do. You cannot go and say, Oh Allah, I'm doing something that I have to do because I want something from you. We cannot do that. We do it whether we get something from Allah or not. Now sometimes we're gonna have to pay an extra slot. We may have to pay something even longer, we might have to do extra Salawat for health Allah subhanho wa Taala but we can never be selfish, selfish about this matter.

00:20:39--> 00:21:15

This idea is not in regards to the Fatah its salah, this is in regards to someone that I mentioned that yes, it could be in regards to for Isola, but there are a lot of manifests you know, they mentioned that this is in reference to the no wife and Salaat through the no office or the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never would pray his football if and if he wanted additional help when matters would get difficult for him. He will never talk about he never came a priest his football and he would stand up and night and he will pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala he will come inside the masjid and he will pray additional prayers. That is what brings the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:21:15--> 00:21:56

so today unfortunately you and I are in a state that when we are when we you need to help Allah subhanho wa Taala and we think and we just pray our for it. And we think that we've done our job, we have done our job. We simply done what we had to do. And that's all it is. So the problem is oh well why didn't he was on this exactly what he would do. The other thing about salad is that salad as I said earlier, it provides that it provides a home from Allah subhanho wa Taala but as I said earlier, the salad also means DUA and why is important to note this is because there are so many doors of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, there are so many doors in the Quran, where Allah

00:21:56--> 00:22:38

subhana wa Taala has helped comes with these kinds of doulas a famous dewata You and I are very well aware of one the most effective doulas. In fact, Allah says himself in the Quran, that when you make the same dua, ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala just like Allah saved you reciting some Allah will save the believers also, this is a promise from Allah subhanho wa taala. It was not only for Yunus that he would make this dua and he will be saved but Allah is making that same promise with us. He says festa Jebin Allah who wanna Jada Hamidah la mia, worker there Liikanen Jane Momineen ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will save the believers also. So inshallah and now one last thing. Yes, I do want to

00:22:38--> 00:23:18

mention is in the same Surah Surah Baqarah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he brings up another idea very similar. This idea is, yeah, you have Nadine Amman, who is the angel with somebody who was salah, in the beginning of the first Jews or is somewhere near a quarter of the Jews. Allah mentions is there you know, be somebody was like He never mentioned. Yeah, you're living in Amarillo, he simply said, Is there enough somebody was thorough, but there he said something interesting. See in this idea, what Allah mentioned, seek the help of Allah through somebody salaat and then he says, Allah is with those who are patient, that he mentioned anything about salah for that there is no mention of salaat

00:23:19--> 00:23:31

but in the first idea is there will be somebody was salah, after that in that ayah Allah talks about Salaat he says what into her, let her be rotten, Ill Hashem.

00:23:32--> 00:24:17

If you have if you are lazy, and it's difficult for you to pray, Allah subhanaw taala saying, when he's talking about the Israelites, he's talking about but he saw you, he says, Seek the help of Allah through Sabha and solid. But then he says salam is we're in a ha laka be rotten, it is a burden. It is difficult upon the people except for those people who are devout to Allah subhanaw taala. If we are in a situation now think about this, Allah is telling us to seek His help through the salad, I'm going through some difficulty, yet I'm so lazy thinking about it. I'm so lazy, or we're so lazy, that I cannot praise the Lord despite the fact that Allah has said that this is the

00:24:17--> 00:24:59

remedy to my problem. That's like saying that my doctor has given me and has prescribing medication, but I'm so lazy to even take that medication. That's exactly what it is. Allah is saying you want his help. But then if you don't, and you find that lazy and you just cannot find that opportunity in that physical ability, or that mental ability, I will say that you can stand up and you can pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala and once again, not to Freud, even the dinner werfen Allah subhanaw Saying that why is this difficult? If this difficult if this is difficult upon you, then this is a very serious concern. This is a serious concern because

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

Allah is telling us that you understand you have a problem. Allah does not get affected by our problems, but our challenges. Allah say you have challenges. But yet you are so lazy and you find is so much burden upon yourself to stand up and pray to like us a lot and ask Allah for help. There's a serious concern. There's a serious problem there. We're in the Kabira turn, it is burdensome upon these people, except for those people who are devout. The devout people, no matter what the situation is, they will always pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala they will always ask Allah subhanho wa Taala and they will always seek His help. So he shall I will stop right here. But the most

00:25:39--> 00:26:18

important thing that we take from all this is of course, no matter what the situation is, we have to always be patient with Allah. So be patient with the situation. And once again, as my my humble humble Ramadan I mentioned that this is a this is something that is compulsory, meaning that no person can say, I'm a Muslim, and I will never go through difficulties. It will never, ever, ever, ever happen. No, no, there aren't going to be different challenges. Not every person is going to go through the same challenges and we can never, don't ever look at someone else and say, Oh, they're going through a lighter or an easier challenge than we are and we don't know each other's challenges

00:26:19--> 00:26:56

will lie every single household their challenges that you know Allah subhanaw taala test is different families, different people in different ways. Okay. So what we what we need to do is as a believer is whatever situation we are in, we are patient, we seek Allah's help through our salon and through making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala when we see about what is going on with the Muslims all over the world, Saba insalata and dua this is what this will this is what our deen has taught us. And if we do this in sha Allah Therma in sha Allah, look at the end of the day, I'll finish on this. Allah is telling us you do what you have to do at the end. That's what it is, is that you know

00:26:56--> 00:27:34

means what? You want my help, I'm willing to help you. But first, you must do this. You must do this on your end first. If we are not willing to do what Allah wants us to do first, how can we expect the help of ALLAH to come it will never happen. So first we do this in sha Allah, then the hell of Allah subhanho wa Taala will come I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give all of us ability to act who has been sent her to me Allah subhanho wa Taala give us the ability to do that exactly what he wants from us. And we ask Allah subhanaw taala that when he gives us gives us the ability to be patient in times of difficulty, and to be thankful to Allah in times of ease, and may Allah subhana wa Taala

00:27:34--> 00:28:01

instill within us the ability to pray our five time days a lot to be punctual. And not only that, but what brings us closer to Allah is the inner waffle. ask Allah to give us ability to get to ask Allah We ask Allah to give us ability to pray, and observe more know often to earn his pleasure. I mean, does that come Allah Subhana Allah who I'm not sure that we're into that stuff, we're going to be like Zachman Lawhead Samadhi conclave broke
