But then bearing witness that nun has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger We ask Allah to send his peace and blessings upon him, his family companions and those that follow until the day of judgment we ask Allah to make us amongst them, Allah him I mean, the brothers and sisters in the beginning of this week, two people that are very close to me lost their mothers may Allah subhanaw taala have mercy on them and accept them into his Jannah May Allah subhanahu wa taala allow them to feel comfort and to achieve the reward through patience Allahumma Amin and as you're talking

to someone that is burying a loved one, it's very hard to convey any type of hope that's left in this world and all of us that have been there with burying a loved one can relate to that that how do you say to someone that there is any type of hope or replacement left in this world? When on Southern model the Allahu Tada and her last Abu sedima Are the Allahu Anhu. And she prayed to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for something better. And when sunnah model the Allah and her got the Prophet salallahu it he was setting them. But for most of us, that type of replacements in this world does not come and what's usually left is a great void and if you don't treat that void properly, then

00:01:21--> 00:02:02

what it could do is it could deplete you to where you do not pursue happiness in this life or the next but instead you just kind of shut off. May Allah subhanaw taala have mercy on our loved ones and may Allah subhanaw taala gather us with them around the beloved SallAllahu arte who was salam Allahumma Amin, but then I started thinking about it from a greater perspective in terms of how we treat pain in the first place. And how we achieve suburb and the difference between patients which is suburb and the sub which is to seek the reward and the way that the model has led him Allah defined it so beautifully. He said that the sub is a suburb, the edge Raja throw up. It is patients

00:02:02--> 00:02:30

that you seek a reward with. And so what defines or what graduates a person's patience where they don't say anything. You know, on the profit side, some saw the woman that was crying at the graveyard and saying things that were inappropriate and he told her to be patient and she instead lashed out not knowing who he was some Allahu alayhi wa sallam, he told her a Sabra and the supplemental hola you don't have to worry about offending me He forgave her right away. But patience is not the first strike patience is to hold yourself attempts

00:02:31--> 00:02:32

to restrain

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

the sob is to seek the reward to actually use that pain and that patients to propel you closer to Allah subhanho wa taala. And there's something beautiful about that because it teaches us that one of the things that we do wrong when we try to make ourselves patients or make other people patients is trying to minimize their tragedy. Try to minimize their pain, try to minimize their burden as a way of putting things in perspective. Whereas in reality, ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada does not want us to minimize our pain. Allah wants us to use our pain to seek something greater with him. And as I was going through the Hadith on the subject, I came across this longer narration and Kitab is both with

00:03:18--> 00:04:07

my magic with it no magic mom no magic and the mama Timothy Rahim Allah to Allah and it's a week narration and it's chained but a profound wisdom, where every meaning it is so strong and reinforced by other Hadith I just thought that it would be a beautiful one for us to reflect upon, in the short moments today. narrated from without all the Allahu Tada and hold that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said as the harder to fit dunya laser to be to three mil Halal wala Illa till man when I can as I heard that if it dunya and takuna be mafia, DECA oh come in Mafia de la the first part of it. This narration that Zuid asceticism in this world is not that you forbid yourself from lawful

00:04:07--> 00:04:53

money from lawful income Allah subhanaw taala allows you to earn nor to squander your money, not use your money the Halla that you earn to use it in a way that pleases you in a halal way that's not Zuid. That's not asceticism. asceticism is not depriving yourself in you know, self afflicted poverty, putting yourself in a difficult situation and calling that Zote. But asceticism he says is that what is in your hand is not greater in your sight than what is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala so beautiful, that what is in your hand is not greater to you than what is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala and the second part of this narration speaks to the masiva he says What am

This is so powerful, that you are more hopeful of the reward that comes from an affliction when you suffer from that affliction, than if it would have remained with you, that you are more hopeful in the reward that is with Allah subhanahu Atana then even if it would have remained

00:05:24--> 00:06:07

with you, meaning the affliction that you suffer, remains, but the reward that you seek from Allah subhanho wa Taala puts the affliction in perspective. So it's not that the affliction is to be lessened. It's not that the pain is to be lessened. It's not that you're supposed to say, well, it's okay, you know, I'll move on. It's not that you are supposed to feel less hurt about it. It's that you take that pain and you convert it to draft. You convert it to supplication, you let it drive you to prayer, you let it drive you to seek a reward from Allah subhanho wa taala. That with every single diminishing in this world, you see an opportunity for increase in the next that with every

00:06:07--> 00:06:54

single disappointments in this world, you don't turn off from everything else you see an opportunity or something to cause you to hope for what's in the next. It doesn't cause you to pursue this world and head on or to enjoy it in Halal any less. It causes you to remain attached to what is permanent, and what will outlive this world and to let that reward become your pursuit. And subhanAllah. We find this reinforced over and over and over again and at the sub in this practice of anti sob in this practice of seeking the reward, which is why the prophets lie some would say to the one when they lose someone beloved to them. fosmon was tested. Foster whitest any pain that you suffer in

00:06:54--> 00:07:36

this world, be patient with its meaning hold yourself back and then activate yourself in seeking the reward. Patience is not reacting in a way that would cause you to lose the reward of that affliction in and of itself, if the sob is taking that affliction and making it a means of elevation in the Hereafter. And so enjoy what is in your hands while it's in your hands. But don't let ever let what is in your hands corrupt your heart or allow you to lose sight of what is in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala enjoy the blessings that you have in this life and do not seek affliction. Don't seek trial. Don't test Allah subhanaw taala tests you don't seek pain. Don't disconnect from your loved

00:07:36--> 00:08:08

ones because you say Allah is going to take them away from me one day anyway. Don't treat them any less don't have any less of emotion towards what Allah has brought to you in this life but don't ever let it distract you or clout.
