Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala Rasulillah him Hamid y li wa Sahbihi LG marine Robicheaux Halle so today we are Siddeley Emily wahala, aka data Melissa Annie EF Coco Lee, bad as salam Wa alaykum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh. Brothers and sisters around the world wherever you may be, I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us the ability to benefit from Ramadan, may Allah subhanho wa Taala accept our fasting, our yam, our do eyes and any good that we may do in the month of Ramadan May Allah subhana wa Taala reward us and magnify these rewards for us in this dunya in the akhira Amuro Bella Alameen. So as mentioned yesterday and we are continuing

00:01:13--> 00:01:55

what we talked about yesterday, which are the benefits and the fruits of Eman what are the benefits and what do we get when we have Eman? So I want to share with you another few ideas from Allah subhanho from the Quran and from the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The very first one is that Allah subhana wa Taala promises us something that we all strive for every single day. And what is that? It is a peaceful and a life full of content and happiness. Brothers and sisters, everything that we do. Eventually it comes down to what why do we do everything because I want to be happy. At the end of the day. I don't want grief in my life. At the end of the day, I

00:01:55--> 00:02:39

just want to have a smile on my face. And at the end of the day, I want a problem free life. First of all, is there is no such thing called a problem free life. In this dunya ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala has associated different problems with different people. Every person has some issue going on in their life. There's not a single person in this dunya who can say that I am living a problem or a issue free life. Why? Because there's only one place that does exist where there are no problems and that place is called Jana. So when we talk about this dunya and this dunya is a place where there are going to be problems and there are going to be challenges and there are going to be ups and

00:02:39--> 00:03:26

downs. At the end of the day. There is still some kind of people or there are those types of people that despite the fact that they have issues going on in their life. They are still happy. And that is what Allah subhanaw taala he's promising us and SUTA Nahal he says mana Amina Solly Harmon Declan owns the Wahoo movement that whoever does righteous deeds, men Amina Saudi Hindman, second owns a man or woman well who are men and they are a believer and Why did Allah subhana wa Tada mention this is because when a believer does something, he knows that in sha Allah as a reward will be given to me by Allah subhanho wa Taala whereas on the other hand, a believer or a person who would simply

00:03:26--> 00:04:09

just does actions, just because they are Muslims, and there are so many people like that Subhan Allah, I mean, there are people who just praise a lot and because they just have to pray and because they're Muslims, they pray but that becomes a meaningless salaat that means that that salad they're not benefiting anything from that salad. They're not increasing in their short in the salad. So Salah becomes what it meaningless, it becomes simply a habit or a ritual in life. But a believer, a min a person who has Iman, when they do righteous deeds, they know that in sha Allah there are so many benefits behind this for them. And that's that is why Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Fela nahi

00:04:09--> 00:04:57

and no higher than for yerba. This word for the North Korea now who has a known shudder at the end. And if you are familiar with the Arabic language, then you know that a noon shut down or a noon with a test deed on top. At the end of a verb a provides emphasis which means that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala is not simply saying, I will give you a peaceful life. Allah is saying most certainly, I will give you a life full of peace and happiness. So this is a benefit of iman that ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala promises us peace and tranquility. And by the way, if you study if you look very closely at our deen, Iman the connection between Iman and happiness. How does that connection get established?

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

Faith and Iman

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

produces tranquility. It produces a comfort heart, it produces contentment and the heart and these three things, they spell out and they create a happy heart. So this is why when a person has faith in Allah when a person has Iman is going to lead to happiness for this person. This is the fifth one yesterday we covered for today. This is the fifth one that we're covering. The sixth one is something that we find also in the Quran, and also in the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says in the Quran, that for me, Yamuna saw the hottie were who were mocked me known, Fela COFRA Annalisa you were in LA who Kathy Boone? You know, have you ever

00:05:46--> 00:06:33

wondered that we do so much for Allah subhanho wa Taala there's so much good that we do in this dunya Can you just possibly imagine and may Allah never make us from amongst those admirable Alameen. But just imagine if a person did so much and he appeared before Allah subhanho wa Taala and he thinks that he has done so much. And today on this day of judgment, He is going to be saved. But just imagine if ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala said, that each of these actions that you have done, there is a certain deficiency, there is something wrong with each action, good action that you have done, and hence today, I will not accept anything. Can you just imagine the hopelessness and just the the

00:06:33--> 00:07:13

sheer, you know, grief and sorrow that a person will have on the Day of Judgment. This is what Allah subhanho wa Taala is saying that when a person is righteous, and when a person has eemaan, Allah subhana wa Taala will never let his efforts go to waste. And you know, subhanAllah I want to share with you go back to the seed of the Prophet SAW Allah said I want to share with you a moment in the life of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam go back to the time when he first received his first revelation Jebediah his son comes to the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam. The hadith is long is found in the very first chapter of body and he comes back to his wife, Helene Jabalia, Latina and

00:07:13--> 00:07:58

Hadiya says something very interesting to the Prophet salAllahu alayhi wasallam you know what she said? She said to the Prophet, and she assured him, that old prophet Oh my husband, why would Allah do something terrible to you? When you are a person who feeds people, you look after people, you care for people, you're a HELOC, is so exemplary. Why would ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala hurt you in this way? This concept and this quote of Khadija taught us that whatever a person does something good, most certainly Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you the reward for it. Now the question that you may ask is that I've done so much good. There's so many people I have helped. I'm always trying to

00:07:58--> 00:08:43

do good with someone else. Why isn't ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala showing me the results in this dunya? Well, here's what it is. This is why there's a person who has Iman and there's a person who does not have Iman, the people who don't have Iman, when they do good ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala will give them the reward of their good actions in this dunya but a person who is a believer, a person who has Iman, Allah will give them some benefit and we may not understand we may not see those benefits, but Allah subhana wa Taala is assuring us that in this dunya and especially at a time when we will need in most the Ark era, Allah subhanho wa Taala will save our rewards at that time. And at that time,

00:08:43--> 00:09:25

when you see those people that they have nothing to show for versus you and I in sha Allah that we will have something to show for on the Day of Judgment. At that time, we will be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Oh Allah We thank you and we praise you that we did so much good. But instead of giving all the benefits of everything good that we have done in this dunya you saved it for us in the era, we will praise Allah and will be thankful to Allah subhanho wa Taala so this is why it is so important that always remember that whenever any good that you do and you are a believer in Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give you something in the hereafter. In fact in Surah Islam,

00:09:25--> 00:09:59

Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions women are all the HERA was saya Hua Hua men, this is the key thing, whoever desires woman or rather, you know whoever desires and they want the akhirah Watsa Isla has salsa and they strive for the akhira they know that they may do something good, they may not get any benefit in this dunya but most certainly in the ocular they will get something well who were movement and they are a believer in Allah. Allah says for hola que se

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

Are you home Mascoutah Allah subhanaw taala says that their efforts will be appreciated. Think about Allah appreciating our efforts, Allah will give us in sha Allah, Jana in the hereafter. So this is the key thing. And not only that, but I want to share with you another few is from the Quran from Sudan. In fact, that tells us that if we work hard, and we don't believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. And this may be in the context of you know how many times today at hamdulillah we're doing so much work as a Muslim community all over the world. You find so many Muslim communities working so hard, doing so much good in their own society, in their own community and so forth. But Allah subhanho wa

00:10:44--> 00:11:28

Taala tells us to that you have to remember that number one, you're doing it for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala and you're doing it only to please Allah subhanho wa Taala I'm not worried about gaining other people's approvals. And for that Allah subhanho wa Taala he tells us in the Quran, he tells in fact, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam will say, Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he will not be serene. Amala Shall I inform the believers? Shall I inform you that believers have the greatest losers on Earth in terms of their deeds? Who are those people that Allah is calling? The greatest losers? He says a levena Walesa Are you home? Phil higher to dunya it is those

00:11:28--> 00:12:15

people whose efforts went to waste fill hayati. Dunya in this dunya well whom yes a boon and they are thinking what a gnome you're seeing on a sauna that they are doing something amazing. Why is that Allah He can Lavina Kapha Ruby Tierra be him while he or he for habitat? Arma Allahu Allah saying that these are the people who denied who rejected what did they reject the Ayat of Allah and what else do they reject the fact that they have to meet Allah subhanho wa Taala on the day of judgment for her because to whom Allah says that their efforts there our man went to waste Furlan up moolah whom yarmulke Yamato was not and when they're these are going to be put on the scales,

00:12:15--> 00:12:54

because they do not believe in Allah subhanho wa taala. They only focused on the efforts that they were making. And because of that, Allah says that when the efforts are going to be weighed philanthropy moolah whom is not going to be weighed, in fact, even if it's weighed on the Day of Judgment is not going to have any value on the Day of Judgment. So this is why brothers and sisters, we have to always remember that whatever we're doing, number one, Allah will give us the reward for it. And if we focus only on the effort and only on the physical part of the effort, and we don't believe in Allah subhanho wa taala, Allah will let our efforts go to waste. And if we even if Allah

00:12:54--> 00:13:36

gives it to us in this dunya, the benefits, we will have nothing in the akhira stored for us. That's the sixth benefit of having Iman, the seventh benefit of having Iman and this is a tough one for a lot of people. This this is very tough, and that is to be content with the other of Allah subhanho wa Taala there are a lot of us who are going through a lot of issues in life. And the one thing that we do all the time is that we make dua we make dua, women, Doha, and eventually what happens after some time is that after making dua for such a long time when we don't see their results, we become what we become hopeless in Allah subhanho wa Taala remember that a believer Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:13:36--> 00:14:23

says in Surah Turabian he says, Man assaulted me mercy button in the evening Allah, no calamity comes upon a person, except for it is the from the permission of Allah subhanho wa taala. And then Allah says warmane You mean Billahi you had the call bar. This is the key here. This is why I chose this ayah here and pay attention. Allah says, Whoever believes in Allah, Allah will guide his heart. Allah will guide his heart and so the unis ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala says in the Levina man what I'm you know, sorry had those people who have Iman and they do righteous deeds. Yesterday him Rob boom be Imani him, Allah will guide their hearts to Iman. So this is why it is so important that we have

00:14:23--> 00:14:59

to have this belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala that everything that has come to us, it is only from Allah subhanho wa Taala in fact, Allama Ashoka Annie Rahmatullah Ali, a great scholar of the past, when he talked about this idea, he actually says that a believer when they are going through afflictions in this life, they know very well the first of all the afflictions is from Allah subhanho wa Taala Isla, and not only that, but the fact that they know that is coming from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah will reward them for this. Then this is going to revive their Iman. Yes, they're going through a challenge.

00:15:00--> 00:15:39

But at the same time, they are going to be reviving their email and they're going to feel good that at least this is from Allah subhanho wa taala. And I know that my efforts will not go to waste. So this is why it is very important that we never lose hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala because you don't want the biggest things I'm going to be honest here Brothers Sisters is we live in a society and we live in a time where we want everything very instant. Okay, how many times we do things and they say, Oh, if you do something, then hopefully you'll get the result as soon as possible. We live in a society and in a world where we want results very quickly. And we have to understand that when

00:15:39--> 00:16:17

it comes to Allah subhanho wa Taala that principle does not necessarily apply to Allah subhanho wa Taala because when it comes to Allah, Allah will inshallah accept our Dwyer's. But the very first thing that we need to do is that first of all, we need to remain hopeful in Allah subhanho wa taala. See, if you and I we make dua and we say, oh, Allah do this, oh, Allah helped me here, oh, Allah helped me there and necessary, the help does not come right away. Okay, the help does not come right away, then the very first thing that we're going to do is the next time we make dua is we're going to be saying, oh, Allah, Allah, I don't have a job, oh, well, I'll provide me a job. But in the back

00:16:17--> 00:16:56

of our mind, we're saying what, Allah is not going to give me a job. And that's why I bring your attention and my attention to the hadith of kotse, where Allah subhanho wa taala, he says, and are in the one near RBBB, I treat my slaves according to their expectations with me. So meaning that if I have an expectation from Allah, that Allah will not give it that Allah will not give it to us, Oh Allah, we asking for Shiva, Oh Allah, we asked you to give Shiva to our parents, our children and to me, but if I in deep down inside, in the back of my mind, I'm saying that Allah is not going to give me Shiva. I've made this dua so many times that Allah does not do it, then that's what's going to

00:16:56--> 00:17:35

happen. Allah will not give Shiva and Allah will not give what we're asking. This is why it is so important that we remain hopeful. Remember, that Allah has the results do not come from Allah immediately. Allah wants to see some effort. Allah wants to see some effort. But here's the key thing. And this is why this is so important for us to be believers in Allah subhanho wa taala, that at the end of the day, Allah will not let us go, Allah will not let us you know, Allah will not leave us hanging. And I always give this example, this is a very beautiful example that it resonates with a lot of people, you know, imagine when your child is growing up, imagine putting them at a

00:17:35--> 00:18:16

very high place. And as a father and mother, what do you do you tell them jump. Now imagine if they're at a high place, imagine they're like on a kitchen counter, and you tell them to jump. Now the very first thing they will do is that they will look down, and they see that if I jump and if I don't make it into my parents arms, then I'm going to fall and I'm going to get hurt really bad. So in the very beginning, they're very reluctant. And that's exactly what Allah subhanaw is telling us. He says, jump, just make that leap. And when we make that leap, imagine just like any other parent, a parent comes in, and what do they do, even though they're standing far, and they're telling your

00:18:16--> 00:19:01

child to jump and the child knows inside, in their psyche, that there's no way I can I can jump that far. But as soon as they jump, what happens the parents they come in, they swoop that person, their child and they hug that child. The same thing happened with Allah subhanho wa taala. Allah is telling us make that jump, believe in me have to have you have to have believed and when we make that jump, and we say that no matter what insha Allah sama Inshallah, Allah will answer my prayers and Allah will take care of it. And I make that leap for Allah subhanho wa Taala then Allah will not leave us hanging, Allah will swoop in and he will catch us and at the most dire times, Allah will be

00:19:01--> 00:19:44

there for us and that's something that we have to truly believe at the end of the day. And so this is why it is so important to understand that Allah subhanaw taala is going to be there at all times for us. And finally, the last in the eighth benefit there. Of course there are many other benefits that we can find over iman, the last benefit I'll share with everyone today here is that it is going to be the ultimate reward, the ultimate goal that we all are chasing and Allah subhanho wa Taala promises Janna to those people who have Iman. That is the benefit of iman Allah will save a person from Jahannam and will admit him into Jana. What more do we want? This is exactly what ALLAH SubhanA

00:19:44--> 00:19:59

wa Taala will give us if we are true to Allah subhanaw taala and we have EMA and Allah subhanho wa Taala so I ask Allah subhana wa Taala to give us EMA ask ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to increase in our iman and no matter what ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala

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

is always there. Remember brothers and sisters, I'm saying this for everyone including myself, that if we feel like they, you know what, I don't need to live my life Allah does not do this and Allah does not do that. It does not harm Allah subhana wa Tada it only harms ourself. So why not go to the one who may have put us in there? Who has put us in that situation in fact, and we ask Allah subhana wa Taala so inshallah we ask ALLAH SubhanA without to give us Iman to make our iman more stronger and we ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help us now as I've done all the time at the end because this is a sore throat Hatha Inshallah, I will be going and just making some dua Insha Allah, you can

00:20:39--> 00:21:18

follow with me and say I mean in sha Allah, I don't want to go through the translation, we will go through the translations of these dua some other time in sha Allah, but at this time, just make dua with me in sha Allah.
