00:00:00--> 00:00:53

Brothers and sisters, I want you to think back to the images that we saw of Hajj. This particular year we saw that blessing group of people, those few that got to do the law and got to enjoy an empty hedge the way that they did the image of that janitor that was in front of the cab all by himself, the image of that woman making them out all by herself. The few that got to go to Missouri never we were typically you have the crowding in Nevada. It was nice and beautiful and empty. And now the gates of Amara have opened up as well. And a select few people have been chosen to go to the house of Allah subhanaw taala for oma and you see the images and it looks so tranquil, so beautiful.

00:00:54--> 00:01:43

And if anyone has ever been to specifically, method, an Obi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Muslim Nebo is just a place of tranquility, no matter how crowded it is. Imagine with so few people there with COVID I want you to picture this news coming to you. That you are going to get to go to the messages of the prophets of Allah hardy who was send them for a month, five star hotel, right in front of the messages. You have your view of the messages, you want to select five times a day, your work is taken care of all of your other things are taken care of you have a month of access to the messages of the prophets of Allah Azza wa Salaam. How beautiful would that be? I can see some of you

00:01:43--> 00:02:33

smiling under your masks, just thinking about the idea of Medina for a month. Without any troubles going to the messages of the prophets. I saw them praying coming back everything taken care of. And Subhana Allah as I've heard these words of people craving Ramadan because of how stressed out everyone is. This had these came to my mind, which says that you will often hear in some iteration and fundraisers and I've never known this had to be more relevant than it is right now in its totality to us in our lifetimes and Allah knows best. And Sadie from abnormal the law of China and humor that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said hadn't been nasty in Allah and Pharaoh in

00:02:33--> 00:03:18

us, the most beloved of people to Allah are those who are most beneficial to the people will have been in Allah and the most beloved of deeds to Allah surah Tito who Allah Muslim that you bring inner joy to the heart of your brother or sister Oh taxi for uncle quarterback, oh, that you or that you do away with one of their troubles one of their hardships. Oh, technically, I'm who, Dana, are that you do away with one of their debt debts, I'll tell you the one who you are, or that you do away with their hunger. So you either bring joy to them, you help them in their time of anxiety. You take care of one of their troubles you relieve them of the trouble that they're that they're under.

00:03:18--> 00:03:33

You do away with one of their debts, financial difficulty or you feed them and then this Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam or this part of the Hadith, whether in MC Mr. afifi had a lamb and Turkey furphy had and most of the Shahada

00:03:34--> 00:04:12

for me to walk with my brother in his time of need to be with my brother and his time of need is more beloved than doing RT calf in this mustard, not Valley Ranch resident in Missouri the Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for an entire month undisturbed teacup, think about the tranquility that you would have. Think about the spiritual state that you would be in, you'd probably be closer to Allah subhanaw taala than ever but Deen is not about what makes us feel good. It's about what brings us closest to Allah Subhana Hosanna he's saying for me to walk with my brother in his hour of need

00:04:14--> 00:04:59

is better and more beloved to me than doing energy Caf secluding myself in this Masjid of Medina of mine for an entire month and he said Salalah while he was still a woman kept for Baba saatavilla woman Kelvin Allah what OSHA and you Leo Amba not Allahu Allah who Amnon Yokoyama, he said sobre la where it was send them and whoever swallows his anger, Allah will conceal his faults, and whoever suppresses his rage even though he could fulfill his anger if he wished, meaning he has someone at his mercy. But he shows mercy that Allah will secure his heart on the Day of Judgment. Allah will fill his heart on the day of judgment on a day when the hearts are full of fear, standing on that

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

day.

00:05:00--> 00:05:11

Allah subhanaw taala will settle that person's heart on the Day of Judgment. And he continued Salalah while he was still a woman measure, woman, Mr. Murphy he, he has better hair.

00:05:12--> 00:05:57

And whoever walks with his brother in his time of need until he fulfills his need quite a lot this last week, there was a webinar for Coalition for civil freedoms about those who are in prison. And Dr. Asim Qureshi who was a who was himself a prisoner. He said that we forget this part of the Hadeeth that you walk with a person until you fulfill their need, meaning you do your absolute best to see the whole process through had a better level, but a lot wiser agenda Kadima who honestly allottee Yamato zulfi lockdown, Allah will make his feet firm on the slots. On the day when the feats will be shaking on the day when the feats will be slipping, Subhan Allah, I want you to think

00:05:57--> 00:06:41

about this idea of walking with someone in their time of need. And the fact that the Prophet size on them is saying that the degree to which you are there for someone else Allah will be there for you, and how relevant This is to us when we're looking for some sort of peace and trying to deal with the chaos and have our own hardships to deal with. And then we we see everyone else around us, and they have their diversified hardships. And there is not a single one of us in here right now, in a time where people are in anxiety, where there's political turmoil, where, you know, people are suffering from all sorts of mental illnesses and depression is on the rise and hardship and people are losing

00:06:41--> 00:06:51

their jobs, economic hardship in places where they were settled for years, or people are going hungry. Because you have a situation now where world hunger is expected to double.

00:06:52--> 00:07:37

All of us are either in one of those states or know someone in those states, all of us are either in one of those states or know someone that is in one of those phases right now. And you have an opportunity to solidify in a way that even being in the messages of the prophets lights on for a month right now, to solidify the health of Allah subhana wa Tada. And to bring about that tranquility. And for Allah to remove one of your house, it's one of your needs and your worries, because you are in the state of removing a hazard for others. And while we might be there for others, or try to be there for others, and we might not be able to fulfill, we'll be there. But I'll

00:07:37--> 00:08:10

be there with you the whole way. I'll do my absolute best. I'll try to comfort you, but my comfort will inevitably fall short. I'll try to support you but at the end of the day, I only have a limited amount of money. I'll try to bring you food. Some had a lot you know and ici. They did a food pickup the other day and the lines were crazy. People are hungry right now here, not just overseas, here. People are starving. I'll do my best but I'm going to run out of food. I'll do my best to relieve you of your trouble but I'm going to fall short. When Allah is in your hands.

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

A lot never fall short.

00:08:14--> 00:08:49

When Allah is in your cause, Allah subhana wa tada will not disappoint. Because a lot is not limited. And a lot is not overcome by circumstances. And Allah subhanho wa Taala held his exam exam, Allah shows exam to the one who shows exam to the one who shows excellence, Allah shows excellence. And the last exam is not like the accent of a human being. Allah accent is so much more. And so I'm actively thinking catala How sweet would be right now? Yeah.

00:08:50--> 00:09:26

a month in a five star hotel in front of the message of the prophets. I seldom How sweet would that be? Who amongst us cannot fulfill this Hadeeth right now, even if you're in had to yourself, even if you're in hardship yourself. People are sitting around right now people have extra time extra burden to panela some people will busy themselves and hurting people. Some people will busy themselves and observing people, some people will ignore people. Some people will be too disturbed by their own hardships. Mix yourself, involve yourself. Ask yourself every single day, especially as we're going through this time, especially as we're going through this time.

00:09:28--> 00:09:59

How can I be in the hands of someone right now. All of these efforts, everything from volunteering right now to getting the message set up so that we could enjoy Juma to going out and feeding people to doing the check ins and calling upon people. Every single effort needs more people right now, every single one of them. You literally could choose an effort if you don't have anyone in your own immediate circle that you can be in there cause right now every single effort needs extra hands right now. Extra hearts extra attention. Ask yourself

00:10:00--> 00:10:24

What habit Am I going to fulfill right now? Who am I going to be there for? How am I going to be there for people, and that is the best way to have the relief in your own life from Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he also said in another Hadith, whoever relieves a Muslim of a burden from the burdens of this world, Allah will relieve him of a burden from the burdens of the Day of Judgment.

00:10:25--> 00:11:01

To relieve the burden from someone in this world, means the relief of a burden on the Day of Judgment. And whoever eases a difficulty in this world, Allah subhanho wa Taala will grant him ease from a difficulty for dunya when acula in this world, and in the next in this world, and in the next you might not be able to see it, because you're so distracted, maybe by the five houses that you have. But there is a sixth one that a lot took care of that you never even knew about. There is a seventh one, an eighth one, a ninth one, there are harms that were taken away from you because you were engaged in helping someone else that you didn't even know where to come into existence had you

00:11:01--> 00:11:35

not been there for someone else. And Allah relieves you of that in this world. And another relief in the hereafter the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said a woman settled on a Muslim and the dunya settled Allahu Allah He for dunya and akhira. Whoever covers the faults of his brother in this life, Allah will cover them in this life and in the Hereafter. While law who fear only lab, the Americana lab doofy only see, most beautiful way to understudy. And Allah is in the cause of helping his app, so long as his app is engaged in helping his brother.

00:11:36--> 00:11:40

Allah is there for you so long as you're there for your brother.

00:11:41--> 00:12:18

See it all the way through? Ask yourself right now in these critical days, where everyone's thinking about self preservation, what are the conversations I'm down? What are the conversations I need to protect myself? If things get crazy? How am I going to protect myself? What are the conversations I'm looking at my wealth? What are the conversations? How am I going to pay this bill? Oh, everyone's talking about self preservation if things go even crazier. Don't think about self preservation right now. Because when you preserve others, Allah preserves you. When you work for others Allah subhanho wa Taala will be working for you engaged in your costs and a lot so Jenna will

00:12:18--> 00:12:59

be rewarding you may Allah subhana wa tada allow us to always have his divine aid. May Allah subhanho wa Taala relieve our burdens in this life and in the Hereafter cover us in this life and in the Hereafter May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to only busy ourselves with the people to the extent that it is pleasing to Him. May Allah subhana wa tada allow us to serve Him by being in the cause of our brothers and sisters, wherever they are a May Allah Subhana Allah forgive us for our shortcomings in regards to our duties and obligations to him and to his creation as he assigned them a lot. I mean, a whole lot of stuff a lot. He will accompany certain Muslim infested little little

00:12:59--> 00:13:42

food, wine, and hamdulillah him habra, alameen whatever you want to learn a lot, I mean, when are people to subpoena a lot more Salima? selama Vatican abacoa silica Mohammed in Salalah Why do you sell them on early he will suck the heat will sell them to semen kathira their brothers and sisters do not leave this cotulla without crafting a plan for yourself to check on those that you know need to be checked in on to engage in some of the efforts that are taking place right now. There's everything from feeding refugees, to checking up on the elderly in our community. And do not do not like this is to handle at the most basic part of it all it starts with this. It starts with this

00:13:42--> 00:14:07

when we're hurting the shape, balmy instinct is for us to hurt others. The prophets lie some of them said if you cannot do anything good Leone, seek that harness hold back your anger from people don't hurt people. Don't hurt people. If you can't think of anything good to do right now, don't harm people don't make things more difficult for people, men County, you know, rely on the woman

00:14:09--> 00:14:37

or your smart, whoever believes in the law and the last they speak well or just be quiet. If you can't contribute, think about the way that you might be contributing to harm. Don't harm, don't harm. If you can't think of anything good to do because our natural instinct is harm. When we feel harmed, harm, harm and be harmed and the profits licensing law without the law, do not harm or reciprocate harm. So at the bare minimum right now, let's be charitable with each other.

00:14:38--> 00:14:56

Let's be merciful with each other. Let's call upon each other. Let's be more generous with those in our household right now. Because everyone is holed up and you're hearing about marital issues now and you're hearing about family issues now that didn't used to exist before. COVID be more generous to the people in your household right now.

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

Be more understanding

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

You're hurting, don't hurt them. Let them get a comment here, there. It's okay. You know, let someone say something that might you know, it's alright, I'm gonna let that go. Because right now when it's a time of hardship, somehow people are processing in different ways. And every time you find the instinct to respond or to to inject harm, instead of inject either relief, because you can't find the capacity to inject either relief, but you find the natural instinct to just inject harm. hold yourself back. And remember the message of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam for a month. Yeah.

00:15:36--> 00:16:16

what it would be like to be in the message of the prophets lights on for a whole month right now and to have the seclusion you know, what's better than that your brothers and sisters his companionship in Genesis for those May Allah subhana wa tada grant us all his companionship congenital for the dose. For if we are granted that, then all of the burdens of this world mean nothing. If one dip in genda causes all of the hearts of this world to dissipate.

May Allah grant us His pleasure, may Allah subhana wa tada forgive us for our
