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

Kidding, why not only he will sign me he will sell him to Seaman casita.

00:00:05--> 00:00:15

I ship yes sir said these sessions are meant for reflection. They are not classes as much as they are hopefully times for reflection inshallah time times for remembrance.

00:00:17--> 00:00:30

But at the same time we learn as we reflect, and this is something that hopefully, each and every single one of us can do for the rest of the night and Charlotte's I don't have time for personal reflection. And tonight is the night of the 23rd it is a blessed night.

00:00:31--> 00:01:04

According to some of the scholars, the 23rd is Laila for the other and, of course, the majority opinions one of the odd nights, so it could very well be later than other and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept from us all of our ibadat and everything that we do for his sake. So I thought a lot about what book to cover. This is my favorite book, Martha Solomon has a pasta Deen. And last year, I covered keytab matoba, I did the book of repentance, or at least part of it. She also is doing Kitab this year, he's doing the book of knowledge. And to be honest, I thought long and hard. And I just made my decision.

00:01:05--> 00:01:19

After just discussing with Jeff, he asked me what to cover. And I decided to do Kitab Saba, the book of patience. And the reason being is that, well, a lot of us are going through a lot right now it's panela.

00:01:21--> 00:01:50

One of the things that happens in reflection is that you're able to look at your life and you're able to look back and you're able to see where you've come, how you've dealt with certain situations, and so on, so forth. And it's a time to really reflect, you know, and learn lessons from how you've dealt with the trials and the tribulations that have come to your life. because inevitably you're going to face more in your life and sublet is something it's a quality that we are to have throughout our entire lives. So this book is actually the book of patience and gratitude Sabra and sugar.

00:01:51--> 00:02:28

In Mokhtar sermon, how to pass the deen, I have the awful translation in front of me. So I'll probably have to translate the translation a few times. But at least I'll use it sort of as a source in sha Allah to Allah, and try to explain concepts. And we're just going to cover the book of patience, and how to love when we talk about patience. We talked about it for many reasons. You can talk about patience for the purpose of getting over your difficulty or you can talk about patience, for the sake of gaining the reward from Allah subhanho wa Taala. There are two different ways to reflect on it. Either it's a means of you dealing with the struggle in your life, or it's a means of

00:02:28--> 00:03:04

you seeking elevation in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And the second goal is obviously more worthy, but they're not always mutually exclusive. So sometimes, obviously, you're seeking, you know, ease in this life, you're seeking to overcome trial and hardship in this life. But the ultimate goal remains the pleasure of Allah subhanho to Allah. And so when we talk about patience, recognize that we're going to talk about how to seek the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala as well. So the amount of input gamma Rahim Allah to Allah He says that first he starts off with patience. And he says that the word cyber is in the Quran 90 times. So it's actually been mentioned

00:03:04--> 00:03:44

in the Quran 90 different times. And he said it's been joined with various near various bounties as its fruits as a stomach dots. So Allah subhana wa tada every time he mentions patience in the Quran, he mentions a reward with it, which is really interesting. If you think about all the references to cyber in the Quran. Allah mentioned some sort of bounty that comes with it, and they are various bounties there are different types of bounties. Now, realize as believers we live between two states we live between a suburb and a sugar. Those are the responses patience and gratitude. Our circumstances are either neshama or Bella ease or hardship. The response to hardship is patience.

00:03:44--> 00:04:19

The response to ease is gratitude. And as a mama Rosati, Rahim, Allah to Allah said, he said that patience is nothing but gratitude and hardship. And gratitude is nothing but patience and ease. What that means is patience. How do you how do you find patience, you realize that there are people that have less than you, there are people that have more difficult circumstances than you, you're grateful for what you still have. So the way that you that you sustain patience is that when something happens to you, you tell yourself well, and Hamdulillah, it could be worse, there are other people that have much worse circumstances than me, Allah subhanho wa Taala has still given me

00:04:19--> 00:04:56

this. So that's how you make it through your patience. And that is nothing but a manifestation of gratitude, in your times of hardship, whereas gratitude is that your patients with the loss of Hannah Montana, and you're grateful for what you have, so you say, Alhamdulillah, I'm happy with what I have. I don't need to get this and this and this and this in this world, because we're ungrateful when we start rushing for things that we don't have. And we focus on what we don't have. And instead, we are patient with a loss of handling data, recognizing that there will come a time where we will have access to infinite bouncy in genda where you won't have to worry about your

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

salary and how much near um, how much you can consume and so on so forth. So

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

were patient with Allah subhanaw taala with our desires as well, and that is gratitude that we're satisfied with what we have when we're in ease, and we're not looking at what we don't have. So both of these things really represent the same quality. As the moment of Rosati Rahim Allah says, there's a beautiful Hadith to be honest with you. Today was the first time I found an authentic chain for this hadith. The Prophet slicin said there's a hadith and Muslim Imam Ahmed, he says an EMA and onus for husaberg. One is for sugar. He said faith, half of faith is sober and half of faith is sugar. So he man is the source of both of these two virtuous qualities. Half of your EMA is patience. Half of

00:05:42--> 00:06:20

your EMA is gratitude. So basically, Sabo is EMA. shellcode is EMA. So the way that you deal with hardships should be reflective of a deep faith in Allah subhana wa tada and the way you deal with he should be reflective of a deep faith in Allah subhanho wa Taala. So back to the book and the mount Kodama Rahim, Allah, Allah says, If you studied the different ways that Allah Subhana Allah has mentioned patients in the Quran, there is always a different blessing that accompanies it, and they're all very profound. So he starts off with the answer to such though we're a loss of pentameter. Allah says in verse 24, which I'm in Houma, Emma, Tanya do wanna be a Marina lamelle

00:06:20--> 00:07:01

sabado What can we be IR Tina Yuki note that Allah subhanho wa Taala said and we made from amongst the children of Israel, he mom's leaders, Lama, you know, giving guidance under our command, Lamar sabado when they were patient, and they used to believe with certainty in our proofs. So Allah subhanaw taala said that they did not become ima they did not become qualified for leadership and leadership can mean different things right? Here leadership worthy of laws guidance as they lead because there are some leaders that don't have those from Allah subhanaw taala. They don't have guidance from Allah. So they're not leaders in the holistic sense. Rather, they're diluted, right?

00:07:01--> 00:07:44

They're diluted, the appearance of leadership, the appearance of authority, the appearance of power, is not always power. Sometimes this is to the Raj. It's a loss of power. It's Allah punishing them with the illusion of power. But john imitatia doing, we gave them we made them into guided leaders. prophets license says Hola, Raja Deen al Maha Deen. Right. The whole effort that would come after him would be guided rasa Dean and Iman. They're guided in regards to their actions he Daya they're guided in regards to their knowledge and in regards to their to the proper guidance, right. So here Allah subhanaw taala says they did not become worthy of leadership until they gained sober until

00:07:44--> 00:08:24

they were patient. And until they gained the quality of your pain, so sober and your pain, patience, and certainty in the sight and in the sight of Allah subhanho wa Taala. And here there's a very powerful reflection. There isn't an obvious Salam Rahim Allah to Allah sulphonic, who wrote a lot about politics and Islam and leadership and governance in Islam. He said that if you look at this ayah He said, The two most necessary qualities for a leader to have our sub and you have pain. If losses are given, sincerity is a given. If you don't have sincerity, you don't have anything. But as far as qualities are concerned, you cannot lead unless you have patience, and you have certainty in

00:08:24--> 00:09:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala. Why, why are these two qualities so important? Because patience, you know, you're not going to you know, as even I bustled a lot of time on who says Lao you makin a person will not gain a strong firm hold hashtag teller until that person is tested. So a leader can come in with a great agenda and can say that he's going to do all these amazing things. But the minute that Allah Subhana, WA tada throws something his way that's going to test his resolve and test his leadership and test his authority. That's where leadership truly shines and adversity, right, when you study the law of China and all model the alongside and who shines for many reasons. But one of

00:09:07--> 00:09:46

the great lessons to take from his leadership is when the omo was tested with the plague. They were tested with famine, they were tested with the plague. And people were dying, right and left Imada, the year of the ashes. Were all modeled the allot of time and who would have to pray janazah after every Salah in the 10s Can you imagine that in the 10s in that small community, every Salah they had a janazah in the 10s because of the amount of people that were dying due to the plague, and almost all the allowance and who shines bright in those days. So a leader really signs and think about leadership by the way in your own capacity could look camera and we could look homeless, at each one

00:09:46--> 00:10:00

of you is a shepherd and each one of you is responsible for a flock when you've been entrusted with a family. All right, Allah subhanaw taala is going to send test your weight subber is what you need to be able to hold

00:10:00--> 00:10:39

things down at home. Because you might lose your job, you might get tested with health, you might get tested with some sort of fitness, something might strike you might hit you, you need to keep things under control. So sub is a necessary quality so that a leader, you know, can shine and can maintain firmness and resilience and some holidays of Nanda Salaam. In commenting on this, he said that when people are nervous, they look to the leader and they see they studied the expressions of the leader, if the leader demonstrates confidence, then it gives them a sense of certainty and confidence. You know, I remember when I was looking at fear of flying, you know, believe it or not,

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

I used to have a fear of flying as much as I fly, you know.

00:10:43--> 00:11:15

But I'm one of those control freaks, I always have to be in the driver's seat, right? I also have a fear of being in the passenger seat when someone else is driving, right, but the flying thing, right? And so how do I remember just reading one of those fear of flying websites and they said, look at the faces of the flight attendants, as long as they're not panicking, you're okay, if the flight attendants are panicking, you're in trouble. Right? So when the leader when the person who's supposed to be anchoring the ship, demonstrates a lack of patience and a nervousness and anxiety, then things are wrong. So a great leader is someone that can demonstrate a sense of confidence in

00:11:15--> 00:11:54

the face of hardship, right that can say everything is okay, we're gonna make it through this and so on and so forth. What can will be it now you will pin on and they have certainty and our signs, not certainty in their strength, not certainty in their abilities. They have you ever been in a loss of Hannah hoods and they have certainty and a loss of Hannah hoods Allah, they know that Allah is in control. He was in control, he's in control, and he will always be in control. So what's happening to us at a leadership level, right, Allah subhanho wa Taala maintains control, we're certain in that we're confident in that and that gives a person what they need to be able to power through. So

00:11:54--> 00:12:40

again, these are the two things that Allah subhanaw taala mentions that he gives as a reward arm sorry, he gives a strong leadership what's necessary for strong leadership is subud and yaqeen. And of course, if lost sincerity, being the common, the common well, then Allah subhanho wa Taala says and suited to Nan mer in the chameleon photo, that what you have will end well there in the law he back but what is with Allah subhanho wa Taala is forever. When an adze en de la Vina sabara Adra home B Asante Makana Yamanote. And we will give of those who patiently persevere, we will give them a reward according to the best of their actions. What does that mean? The axoneme icon, we know that

00:12:40--> 00:13:23

we will give them the reward of sobor in accordance with the best of their actions. If I'm hustling and bustling Rahim, Allah said, the majority of people don't enter agenda because of a good deed that they did. But instead, they enter agenda because of the patience they showed in a test that was given to them. How I think about that, the majority of people when they enter into genda, the way that they enter into gender is because Allah subhana wa tada afflicted them, or they were afflicted with a tragedy. And they demonstrated patience with that tragedy, you're more likely to get to gender by that, then by virtue of a good deed that you did. So somehow a lot, whether it is the

00:13:23--> 00:13:57

taking of health or wealth or family, whatever it may be, these tests come your way. You are literally building your European you're building your confidence, you're building your suburb, so that when that test comes to you, whatever that test is going to be because you will inevitably be tested somehow to law, human beings. If a las panatela grants the mafia in one regard, Allah subhanaw taala will test them in another regard. Right, if they're granted pardon, with their wealth, they never have to worry about their wealth. And some people will never experience poverty or doubt in their lives, but they will be tested with their family. And some people some kind of

00:13:57--> 00:14:30

level, never be tested with their family, but they will be tested with their careers and they'll never really, they'll never catch a break with their careers. They'll always be struggling their entire lives financially to make ends meet some people, Allah will bless them with their family, with their, with their wealth, with it with everything, but some had a lot, they have a health condition. And they're tested in that regard. People are tested in different ways. But there is no way that you can come into this world and you can leave this world without being tested with some form of Bella. So you prepare yourself constantly for that major test that's going to come to you in

00:14:30--> 00:14:59

life. And when that test comes in life, if you show patients with a loss of hundreds Allah, that is your reason for entering into gender. That could be the reason why you enter into gender. Right? So he said the majority of people enter gender, not because of a good deed that they did, but because of the because of how they demonstrated patience when difficulty and hardship came to their lives. And somehow a lot a lot of times what happens to us is that difficulty and hardship actually humbles us as well, doesn't it? You see people somehow Allah you know

00:15:00--> 00:15:13

When we look at our children, sometimes you look at young kids when they're sleeping, and they look so innocent. And there's so much cuter and there's so much lovable when they're sleeping, because they're not jumping around. They're not giving you a hard time. You know, so how a lot when you see people when they're sick,

00:15:15--> 00:15:53

you know, people are so humble when they're sick. You know, they're so humble when they're sick. It's unbelievable. Like, how many times have you seen an arrogant person demonstrating arrogance in his hospital, but it doesn't happen. People are very humble. In some cases, they're withdrawn. Right, they have no hope anymore, and so on, so forth. But But in any case, people are humble. People are less fiery, they're less feisty, they're more likely to want to see their friends and see their family members, they're more likely to call upon Allah subhanaw taala they're more likely to question their purpose in existence and so on so forth, because a major affliction struck them and

00:15:53--> 00:16:32

it removed the distraction of health. Every name is a distraction, right? every blessing that Allah gives you is a distraction of some sort. Your health is a major distraction sometimes. So a lot of remove that and suddenly you're questioning everything and you're and you're calling upon a loss of data and so on so forth. So sometimes that Bella that that tests in that trial that Allah subhanaw taala sends to us, it really puts us back in our place. And here there it might say also, when an edge azienda home be asked any mechanical Jarmon we will give them in accordance with the best of that which they used to do a loss of Hannah hoods Allah would treat the best of your ml and he would

00:16:32--> 00:17:21

and he would, and he would make that the cause for your entrance into paradise. Then he said and sort of Zuma inverse tons of how I sorta Zuma was recited today when I lost some 100 ty says in them a UFO slobby Runa agita home Be ready ASAP. Indeed the patients will be given their reward from Allah subhana wa tada without account. Even Kodama Rahim Allah says every ama, every action has its makadi it has its estimation so for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a good deed could be rewarded by Allah subhanho wa Taala 10 to 700 times to whatever Allah subhanaw taala wills, but every good deed even if it's done with a loss, even if it's done with sincerity, it

00:17:21--> 00:18:01

has its estimation it has its its enumeration, right, it's quantified in terms of the hessonite that will come from Allah subhana wa Tada. But when it comes to Subhan, Allah subhanho wa Taala would reward a sabi rune would reward the patients without any form of hyssop there's absolutely no limits to how much Allah subhanaw taala would give you as a result of the the patience that you show when something comes to you. So this is another seminar another another fruits that Allah mentions of patience, that the reward of patience is not quantifiable. It's not enumerated like the rewards of good deeds. So think about for example, you know,

00:18:02--> 00:18:02

they literally

00:18:03--> 00:18:45

lay little Qadri Hi, Ron mean, Alfie Shahar. There is a number there, it's better than 1000 months, right? You do this deed, it counts for this money, you do this, it counts for this money, you do this, it counts for this money. When it comes to patience, Allah subhanaw taala keeps on giving you the Lady hisab without any limits whatsoever. You know why that is some kind of law, if you think about it, if any person could choose, you know whether to be tested in this life and be rewarded for that, or to be grateful in this life and be rewarded for that everyone would choose the path of ease and gratitude. Everyone would choose that no one would choose the path of hardship and patience. But

00:18:45--> 00:19:23

Allah subhanho wa Taala, put the greater reward their last hands out, put the greater reward there. So you find these IDs I mean, so how to love you talk about the most difficult thing that a person might face in life. Probably the most difficult, Allah knows best. I mean, everyone has different. Everyone has different things that they're capable of handling. Probably the most difficult is loss of a child. Right, losing a child is not the norm. It's not the you know, the way that things usually work is that people will bury their parents may Allah protect our parents and protect our spouses and protect our children. losing a child is very, very, very difficult. And that's why the

00:19:23--> 00:20:00

prophets lysozyme said that Allah has said, There is no one who loses a child and shows patience, except that I will enter him into Jana and I will build for him a home and I will name that home Bates will have the house of priests, no one who's tested with that test. How many the law was double jar he said hamdulillah he said in LA LA and La Roger own, except that I will build him that Palace in paradise. It's there for him. Because Allah knows the difficulty of that trial of that test. And Allah Subhana Allah knows it's not the norm and it's and it's beyond what most people

00:20:00--> 00:20:42

face and if a person is able to overcome a test of that sort, then Allah Subhana Allah will take that into consideration as Allah subhana wa tada rewards them as sorted out off. Verse 130 37. Allah Subhana Allah says what often oh my god can you stole the iPhone and methodical out of the womb? I gotta be her. And lucky Barack now if he has, what am I to tell him to rob be kellhus Now Allah Bernice la isla Bhima Sadat Oh, so Allah subhana wa tada says, that we made the people who were considered weak, we made the oppressed, those who are considered weak to inherit the eastern parts of the land and the West, the east and the west, which we have blessed. And the and the kalama, the

00:20:42--> 00:21:24

word of your Lord was fulfilled for the children of Israel for bending Islam in the Mount sabado because of their patience. So the scholars say here, that Allah subhanho wa Taala mentions in this world in this life, that Subbu is the reason why Allah Subhana Allah would allow a group of oppressed people or a group of people that are weak and people that are downtrodden to overcome their enemies. They're sober, they had more endurance. They survived the test due to endurance and don't think just have two two armies that are meeting one another. If a person is oppressed in this world, you know, somehow even in their individual lives, if you show Subhan Allah subhana wa tada

00:21:24--> 00:22:06

will grant you victory over the one that oppresses you, maintain your endurance, maintain your resilience, right? Keep on powering forward, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says a sobald Leah, right. Patience is a victory. it's it's it's a it's it's a victory over your opponent. It's a victory over your oppressor. It's a victory over the shape on, you know some how to lead the worst thing to your enemy is to show your enemy that they can't break you that they can't break you you're unbreakable. So last penetang says due to their sub Allah subhanaw taala gave them victory. He allowed them to inherit the east and the west and he gave them power after the troubles that they

00:22:06--> 00:22:50

were that they were facing. So he mentions he says if you look towards patients, in the a suburb in the Quran, you find that Allah Subhana Allah mentions all of these different benefits and all of these different blessings in this life, and the next. And he said, All acts are measured in light of proportion of patience. So he says that's why somehow love and this is beneficial to us a soul. He says fasting, is sub fasting is patience. And if you and Allah subhana wa tada when he says, feel poor and was there in all the slavery was Salah, that seek help from a loss of Hannah Montana, or seek aid with your patience and with your prayer. Most of the scholars they said and the tough seed

00:22:50--> 00:23:14

that Assad here refers to that patience means that means fasting. So if there was a way to name, our fast, we would name it a sub Allah subhanaw taala names fasting, a suburb. And the power of that is that you know, in our Deen inflicting pain on yourself or inflicting hardship on yourself is not allowed in almost anything except for fasting.

00:23:15--> 00:23:56

Right? Generally speaking, yes. sudo without too little, you always take the easy way out. The prophets Allah Allah Hardy, who was telling me he was faced with two options, right? He said all the Allahu anhu says estado a subtle Houma he always chose the easier path. We're not supposed to put undue hardship on ourselves unnecessary hardship on ourselves. But fasting is just the right dosage, to teach you patience. Fasting is just the right dosage to teach you patience. And so Allah subhanho wa Taala has called a solid he's called. He's called fasting, patience, or he's called patience, fasting. And so he says, if you look at the Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that

00:23:56--> 00:24:09

Allah subhana wa tada has set so the Hadeeth could see that all of the actions of the son of Adam are for him. Illa Psalm, a psalm oliwa, and obviously be fasting is for me, and I reward accordingly. What does that Hadeeth mean?

00:24:10--> 00:24:17

Does it mean that all the other actions that you do are done without a loss without sincerity, just do your fasting sincerely, no.

00:24:18--> 00:24:54

You know, the last panel analysis and others should Okay. And then I'm either I'm in an extra coffee, Mary lady talk to who was her last panel data says that I am the most worthy of not having a partner associated with me and anything. So whoever does a good deed, and he combines the intention with pleasing me and pleasing someone else talk to who will show that I've abandoned him. And I've abandoned that sick, I've abandoned that partnership that he created that false partnership that he created of setting up our partner with me. So he's doing a good deed for my sake, but he's also doing it for the sake of the people. That's a problem with the loss penalty either with any of your

00:24:54--> 00:24:59

deeds as losses to do things only for the sake of a loss of Hannah Montana. So what is this Hadeeth mean?

00:25:00--> 00:25:38

The Hadeeth means a few things, that the footsie means a few things. Number one, that fasting requires a level of sincerity and necessitates that you're doing it only for a loss of data, because there is no doubt that at some point in the day during your fasting you're not going to be in the sight of other people and he would have a chance to break your fast but you still maintain your fast so that's the that's the the first thought either the first benefit that we take from this Hadeeth glitzy However, even Kodama Rahim Allah to Allah and emammal bizarrely they said that what the Hadith means is in NEMA, you have a slob you don't want to go home the lady he said that Allah

00:25:38--> 00:26:23

Subhana Allah would give the patient their reward without any without any without any accounts. So he said that fasting is an unquantifiable good deed because it's suburb because it's patience. That's why the prophets license admin sama, Ramadan EMA and YT, saben ofera, who matter cardamom and MB, whoever fast Ramadan, with, with faith, and with, with with accountability, Allah will forgive all of his previous sins. So he said, Because fasting is Saba, because it's a form of Sabbath, Allah subhanho wa Taala will reward fasting in a special way, unlike the way that he rewards any other deed. So basically, the two ways to look at the Hadith is that one of them focuses on your internal

00:26:23--> 00:27:04

state, it focuses on the person, you're the subject of the Hadith, that you have to maintain some level of sincerity by necessity when you fast because there are going to come times where you could break your fast but you still maintain it for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala the other way of looking at the Hadith is that the mercy of Allah is the subject that Allah subhana wa tada saying, I reward all deeds, all good deeds, but the way that I reward fasting is unlike anything else because it is a manifestation, and intentional manifestation of sub, you put yourself in a difficult situation where you gain patience with a loss of habitat. It's a practice of patience. It's a

00:27:04--> 00:27:44

practice of patience, in many ways. It's a practice of patience, with the blessings of Allah subhana wa Tada. So, you know, patience with your hunger, patients with your thirst. It's also patience with your shower, patience with your desires. And when we get to categories of patients and Kitab of Sabah, we'll talk about that. But, you know, you have to hold off from your desire for intimacy, for example, you have to hold up it's it's a test of patience with your desire. It's a test of patience for many things, right? But the point is, it's a test of patience. It's a holistic test of patience and so Allah subhanho wa Taala rewards it in many different ways. He said that Allah subhanho wa

00:27:44--> 00:28:03

Taala promised the patient his company and bless them with with within comparable gifts. So you don't find a loss of Hannah hoods out of saying in the Quran in Allah Martin mustard filling in the llama l carnitine. In Allaha morale muscle lean

00:28:04--> 00:28:28

in a warm asphalt I mean a lot is with the pre the ones who pray a lot is with the ones who fast a lot is with the ones who seek forgiveness a lot is with and a lot is with but you see in Allaha masala bidding Allah is with the patient. Allah is with the patience Subhana Allah. This is where half of them in Raja Rahim Allah, He said that I studied

00:28:29--> 00:28:45

all of the IRS and the Hadith where Allah subhanaw taala mentions his Mariya he mentioned his being with a person and every single idea or Hadith where Allah mentions his being with a person shows that that person has lost something.

00:28:47--> 00:28:58

And so he said that Allah never takes something away from you, except that he gives you something in return. And the best thing Allah can give you when he takes something away from you is what? himself

00:29:00--> 00:29:00

lojack

00:29:02--> 00:29:39

the best thing Allah can give you when he takes something away from you, is himself. But Allah never leaves you empty handed if a lot takes something away from you, and from you. law gives you something but the best thing he can give you is himself somehow to hold on. And so every single time Allah mentions his Mariya his being with a person even in the Hadith, when the Prophet slice Allah mentioned that a person would come on the Day of Judgment. And Allah Subhana Allah would say, I was sick, and he did not visit me. Can you imagine a law saying I was sick, and you did not visit me? And the person would say, yeah, Allah, how could I visit you?

00:29:40--> 00:29:46

You're the Lord of the worlds. What does that even mean? You know, on the day of judgment, everything's pretty straightforward.

00:29:47--> 00:29:59

That's one of those conversations where a person would be shocked. Yeah, Allah. You were sick. I didn't visit you. What does that even mean? And Allah subhanaw taala says, didn't you know that so and so was sick.

00:30:01--> 00:30:05

And had you visited that person, you would have found me with him.

00:30:06--> 00:30:47

You would have found me with him. So Allah never takes a NEMA from you except he gives you something in return, the best thing a law can give you is himself. If in your hardship you rediscover a meaningful relationship with a loss of Hannah Montana, then you better believe that that hardship is the best thing that ever happened to you. Whatever that partnership was, whatever that bailout was, if that was the cause of you to find a lot, and to rediscover a loss of Hannah Montana, and hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah. Trust me on the Day of Judgment, you won't regret it. On the day of judgment, you won't regret it. Because you gained something that is so precious, that is so much

00:30:47--> 00:31:17

greater than anything else. So when Allah subhana wa tada mentions in the LA Mau, slobbering a BB Nosferatu, he will be only he Subhana Allah to Allah, with his lead with his help and with his victory and with his support that Allah is with you. When you are in that hardship and when you're expressing sober there is nothing greater than that. So he said and then Allah subhana wa tada says, about a sobbing hula, aka Liam Salatin and Robbie him while I was

00:31:18--> 00:31:37

doing that Allah subhanho wa Taala has guaranteed for them three different bounties and one is what best [???] is sabihin give glad tidings to the patient. And Allah Subhana Allah mentions that they have solo Ottoman Robbie him the prayers of their Lord, what does it mean that a lot preys on you?

00:31:39--> 00:31:42

What does that mean? What a solo Ottoman Robbie mean?

00:31:44--> 00:31:45

He knows your name.

00:31:47--> 00:31:47

Your clothes by the way.

00:31:53--> 00:32:40

Baraka Luffy, Zack Allaha, the scholar say Salatin and Robbie him. The prayers from a lot of the way that manifests itself is that youth near Alec film Allah Allah Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala starts to praise you, amongst his angels and the inhabitants in the highest heavens. So Allah mentions your name, to gibreel alayhis salam and to the angels and to the righteous, and to those that occupied the highest positions with Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala, praises that person and mentions that person and remembers that person, in that company in that company in that presence. Yeah, Allah to have your name mentioned by Allah, to gibreel Ali, his Salah, and to the angels in the highest

00:32:40--> 00:33:23

heavens, and with praise not with exposing you panela if you just took a moment like seriously, and you reflected on that, what would it mean, to have a law saying my name right now in the heavens, right in the heavens and Laila to Qatar jabril alayhis salam is here to be our Islam comes down to it as the Illuminati ketubah Roiphe how they go back and they report to a loss of Allah mentioning your name. It's a greater reward than that. What's a greater bounty than that? You know, Subhana Allah, I once had a youth group and I asked him, I said, You know, I said, what does that make you think of in a modern day manifestations like, you know, you know, how we get all excited, like,

00:33:23--> 00:33:31

Look, my name was on TV or I was, you know, there's a shot of me on TV, whatever it may be, right? fame, is shallow.

00:33:32--> 00:33:45

Fame with Allah is the greatest gift that you can possibly have. That Allah your Creator, says, You've been Nika in Seraphin. All of you look at that person.

00:33:46--> 00:34:19

I love that person. Look at how they're responding to it. Look, they were tested, and they're still praising me. Look at them, that shows you that that person, his image, and his faith was not conditional on a loss of how to it's either giving him things of this world because that's a fake relationship. You know, a fake relationship, a superficial relationship. And the human sense is that your relationship is conditional on something material, a loss of how to how to add a praising you to Allah and Allah to this, to this, this highest gathering and saying, Look at that person.

00:34:20--> 00:34:26

His relationship with me, her relationship with me, was not conditional upon anything material.

00:34:27--> 00:34:40

He still loves me, she still loves me. He still praises me, she still praises me. And so Allah praises you in return. hula he can play him follow Ottoman rugby him or her

00:34:41--> 00:35:00

and the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala. the mercy of Allah descends upon you in this world, and the mercy of Allah in the Hereafter, which is what is required to enter agenda presents itself to you. And Allah subhanaw taala says what Allah ecoman mata doing and they are the ones who are guided and he

00:35:00--> 00:35:27

hustle bustle Rahim Allah Allah He comments on this he says that Allah subhana wa tada has not cut has not put put these three favors with one act of Riba except for a subset except for patients, and he said that they are mentioned in in accordance with their greatness. There is nothing greater than being remembered by Allah subhanho wa Taala after being remembered by Allah subhanho wa Taala and being praised by Allah subhanaw taala there is nothing greater than

00:35:28--> 00:36:09

getting and attaining the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala because of the mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala is what you need to attain salvation in the hereafter. And then after that, there is no greater gift than he Daya then guidance, which is the tool for salvation in this world and then attaining the Rama of Allah subhanaw taala in the hereafter. What other act in the Quran Can you find all of these three blessings coming together for one human being? So Allah subhanho wa Taala says, will not carry him solo item and run by him What? What will occur? doing? He says on the other hand, many Hadees have dealt with patience. He said, for example, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa

00:36:09--> 00:36:30

sallam says that no, no servant is given a greater blessing than patience. There's an Ethan Bahati, and this is powerful. Because the prophets lie some missing Saba is an airman in and of itself, it's a blessing in and of itself. And it's the greatest blessing that a person can have. Why? Because if Allah gives you an amazing blessing in this world, okay?

00:36:31--> 00:37:13

But that blessing is not it's unpredictable. You never know when it's gonna fall. You never know when it's gonna be taken away. You never know when something's gonna happen to it, and then you're left back in your despair. But subtotal is the name of patience is the net, to which you can deal with your blessings or your lack thereof, no matter what they are in this world. So the prophets lie, some said, there is no help. There is no fortune. There is no blessing, that Allah gives a person greater than the blessing of patience itself. It's not material, but it allows you to deal with the material. It allows you to deal with the material or the lack of material. He said, Well

00:37:13--> 00:37:59

Carlos Hassan Rahim Allah to Allah sobre, Kenzo and min canoes in higher and Hassan embassy Rahim Allah said, patience is a treasure from the treasures of good. He said, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not give it except to one who is Kadeem, one who is noble in his sights, someone who is honored in His sight. So when a lot bestows patience upon a person, that is a sign that that person is carrying in the law, he's, he's a last panel to Allah values that person so a person is given it as a gift as a treasure from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he mentions and this is amazing Subhana Allah. He says some of the stuff they used to have a piece of paper, and they wrote this ayah This is sort of

00:37:59--> 00:38:36

the Torah last palletizers waspa really hooked me up deca for in NACA br Yanina. Be patient with the commander of your Lord, because you are under our eyes meaning you are under our care. Be patient with the command of your Lord because you are under our care. So even Kodama Rahim, Allah says has been narrated that some of the stuff they kept that I have written down on a paper. So when they would be troubled or when they were distraught, they would look at that paper, they'd look at the written Ayah to remind themselves you know, somehow this brings into into question, you know, Mashallah we we decorate our walls with all types of calligraphy and we've got all these fancy

00:38:36--> 00:38:49

drawings everywhere and Mashallah, they're beautiful, and inshallah as long as a person doesn't have superstitious beliefs about them, then it's fine, inshallah. It's not how long and Allah knows best. But how many people actually read that calligraphy on their walls?

00:38:50--> 00:39:26

Right? How many people actually, you know, you're sitting there. So how I had, though it's not a Hadeeth it was given to me my mother. And it was precious. So my first apartment Actually, my mom, may Allah have mercy on her mom, it's a lot it has. She gave me this little frame that mentioned that agenda to tackle abdominal mahat. But Paradise is under the feet of the mothers. He said, I'm giving it to you so you don't forget. So I actually hung it. When he walked into my living room, my first apartment, the only the only two possessions I had was that frame and a ping pong table, right. But I had that frame as a tiny frame some handle on it was above my living room.

00:39:27--> 00:39:59

And, and I realized how long in my life if you were to ask me what what I'm guilty of this? Well, nobody ofc said you know, you guys don't feel like I'm being judgmental towards you. I've got frames in my house. If you were to ask me, what's the most powerful frame in my life? That was it? Because it was given to me with meaning and I would look at it and I'd remember that. Right. I'd look at it and I'd remember that the agenda to attack them, even though the Hadeeth is not authentic incentive but the meaning is authentic and establish the other ahaadeeth agenda is at the feet of your mother. Right. So the seller

00:40:00--> 00:40:28

Hello, they had these reminders it's okay to write down something for your own. So that you can remember, there's a particular idea that motivates you or particular Hadeeth that motivates you. So Pamela it's good to have that in shot let's add it to be able to go and to to read it, as we see from an Imam Hassan Abbas Li, Rahim, Allah to Allah and that I in particular, philosophy really hooked me up. Be patient with the commander of your Lord. Don't ever think you've escaped the visibility of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:40:30--> 00:40:32

Don't ever think you're invisible in the sight of Allah.

00:40:33--> 00:41:12

Allah sees you. Allah sees your circumstances. Allah sees your pain. A lot. Here's your thoughts. A lot easier. In that could be ru Nina, la la tiefen. The Maya, who will Latif will Javier subhanho wa Taala. He's always subtle. yet he's ever so acquainted subhana wa, he's ever subtle, but he's ever acquainted plus sees you in that can be our union. You're under our care. You're under our protection. You're being watched. I see you. You don't have to question be patient with the command of your Lord in Mecca. Be our union much time do we have

00:41:13--> 00:41:56

so I just mentioned this last this last thing and shot lontana and then we'll open it up to questions in sha Allah tala. Interestingly enough he says that even Kodama Rahim Allah He says Saba is purely a human trait. He said animals are not expected to observe patients because of their inferiority and creation, meaning animals are, by necessity, very impatient, right? Animals are impatient. There's no virtue to patient animals, or whatever it may be. Animals are an inferior species, if you will, right, in the sense that they're not expected to observe salted with Allah subhanho wa Taala. Right. And he said, angels, they don't need to observe Saba, because they're a

00:41:56--> 00:42:25

superior creation. They're a superior species, meaning they're free from the desire that distracts men. So because they're free from desire angels, what are they going to have so before angels don't have desire for food or drink or intimacy and they don't desire anything but their gods of Allah subhana wa Tada. So angels, they also don't require salt. So animals don't require it sub. Angels don't require sub. He said sub is exclusively a human.

00:42:26--> 00:42:38

It's a human act of worship. Patience is only a human act of worship. It doesn't belong to any other creation of Allah Subhana Allah, and that's very rare. Because Salah is Salah exclusively human.

00:42:39--> 00:43:02

Salaam exclusively human do the angels pray? Of course they do. Vicar. Of course they remember a loss of Hannah tan shocker. The angels thank Allah. They do. The angel show gratitude to Allah subhana wa tada what de Lille hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. The angels are also single hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen. But Southern patience is just you.

00:43:03--> 00:43:40

Patience is only for human beings. It's the Riba that Allah subhanaw taala has given to human beings and inshallah to Allah, it's our way. It's our way. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us the people that are grateful in our times of ease, and patient in our times of hardship and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, not to burden us beyond our scope and we ask Allah Subhana inside that one that difficulty comes to us, whatever it may be, that we respond in the way that is pleasing to Him. Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah tala will continue with Kitab o sub, you know, throughout. I don't even know if we'll finish so this is Kitab. This is the book of Sabah and choco

00:43:40--> 00:43:48

to patients and gratitude. I don't even know if we'll finish patients but inshallah Tada, we will try to in these last 10 nights with the nighttime questions.

00:43:49--> 00:43:50

Yeah.

00:44:01--> 00:44:05

Russia, law terrorism in Alabama. How do you know a lot is with you?

00:44:06--> 00:44:09

Right? How do you know Allah is with you?

00:44:10--> 00:44:38

That's what I talked about in the hospital. personnel, one Bella, expect well of Allah, so long as you are taking a path of righteousness and the path of goodness, so long as you are responding in the way that Allah subhanho to Allah has commanded you to respond, then rest assured that Allah is with you. Rest assured, you don't need to see a sign. You do what you're supposed to do a lot is with you. You don't Subhanallah these are the things that we can so for example,

00:44:39--> 00:44:43

when a person speaks good words, and when a person

00:44:45--> 00:45:00

decorates their tongue in their gatherings with Vicky, with the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala whose presence who can we rest assured is present? Who do we know for a fact by our husband along with Allah subhanaw taala by our good expectation of Allah, Who do we know for a fact is with us right now.

00:45:00--> 00:45:01

Know, the angels,

00:45:02--> 00:45:45

the angels, we know in sha Allah to Allah because the prophets I said match them I come, no group of people assembled together to remember Allah except that the angels come and they, they shower them with their or they shade them with their wings until those wings reach a loss. So we know that right? When you start cursing and when you start using bad words and we start backbiting who can you rest assured is with you the shape on you know the devil is with you. Meaning by your actions, you know who's with you. So if you are doing Vicodin, if you are remembering a lot in your times of hardship, if you are responding the way that Allah commanded you to respond, Allah is with you. Last

00:45:45--> 00:45:47

season in the LA Marina

00:45:48--> 00:45:50

so we asked her last time out to be with us.

00:45:52--> 00:45:56

And he sisters. Okay. Yeah.

00:46:01--> 00:46:04

Number one, we're not really supposed to ask.

00:46:19--> 00:46:20

Excellent question.

00:46:21--> 00:46:28

It's not good to ask a lot for sub so you don't you don't see the profit slice I'm asking a lot for sub but sub is the most praiseworthy quality.

00:46:29--> 00:46:38

So how do you reconcile the two with the profit slice in a mountain by when he said don't ask Allah for patience. He says La Casa La de la, La Bella.

00:46:40--> 00:47:10

When you ask for submit, when you ask for patience, it's like you're asking a lot for hardship. You're asking a lot to test you because sober is the response to test in hardship. So the context of that Hadith is that however, to ask a lot for the quality of summer is different than asking Allah subhanaw taala for somebody in a particular situation and so on so forth. So Saba is the natural manifestation, the natural reaction to hardship that a person has in their lives. When you ask Allah for sebat you're asking a lot for supper.

00:47:11--> 00:47:24

Okay, when you ask a lot for thoughts when you ask a lot for firmness, that is a draft for somebody is it not? It is a draft for somebody just the word is different. You're asking a lot for firmness, yum, Ali Bell kulu sub it's called via Allah denecke

00:47:25--> 00:47:50

oyamel suddenly Falco loop sorry scalby Isla de Arctic. Oh Turner of hearts make my heart firm on your path. That's a draft for sub. llama Antara buena for a zoo canal is the farmer. Allah You are our Lord. So grant us the Obama grant us that firmness grant us that that steadfastness that's a do out for subject, but it's a draft for a particular type of subject. So your personal one Billa

00:47:51--> 00:47:56

necessitates that when you ask Allah subhana wa Tada. You ask Allah for the best.

00:47:57--> 00:48:04

If Allah subhanho wa Taala tests you with something even as you're asking him for the best know that what just happened to you is for the best.

00:48:05--> 00:48:12

But don't ask a lot for the trial. Don't ask a lot for the hardship. Right so you're asking for support in different ways. alone.

00:48:14--> 00:48:15

Anyone on this side?

00:48:24--> 00:48:40

No, so the words are irrelevant. The wording is irrelevant. So to clarify, if a person says May Allah give them Subbu you're not wishing bad for them right? That's a good deal. May Allah give me sub? But instead you should ask a lot the profits by some teaches us to be optimistic in our drought.

00:48:42--> 00:49:23

Right? So ask Allah This is actually in the story of use of it his Salaam when use of it his Salaam says a sigil hallelujah. You know that prison is more beloved to me. Then what they are calling me to okay. And he asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to grant him patience in prison and so on so forth. Allah subhanho wa Taala responded to some of the the narrations in order to be and others that last responded and said, yeah, yeah, yeah, use Have you asked the love for a trial? How'd you ask the loss of Hannah Montana, to completely relieve you of the prison and all the types of things that would that those types of things that would have been granted to you? So the point is, is that

00:49:23--> 00:49:30

you have an expectation when you're asking a loss penalty, so you ask Allah for the best so for example, look,

00:49:31--> 00:49:37

you don't go into your your career and ask Allah Subhana Allah, Oh Allah, you know.

00:49:38--> 00:49:59

Let me try to think of a relevant example. Okay, I'm trying to think how would I word this properly but you don't ask Allah Oh Allah. Give me a good boss or a bad boss or give me this much money or that much money? Just give me patience to deal with it. You ask Allah subhana wa tada Oh, a lot. You see a job that you want or career that you think is good for you ask a lot for the career. Right? You don't say from the beginning. Oh Allah.

00:50:00--> 00:50:08

Grant me so but if I get turned down or if I get fired, you ask a lot for the career. But if it doesn't happen, then you're patient you say hamdulillah.

00:50:09--> 00:50:23

Right? You You, you know, as a handler this is I actually spoke about this at one of my favorite writers is Maya Angelou. I know that's like total bedarra. But she's an amazing writer, you know, and one of the things that she said she said that be

00:50:25--> 00:50:36

expect the best, be prepared for the worst and be unsurprised by anything in between. That's a powerful that's such an Islamic sooner way of life, right? expect the best

00:50:38--> 00:50:55

be prepared for the worst and be unsurprised by anything in between. Right. So Subhanallah you have that personal bombilla you have that mindset, right? And you seek the goodness from a loss, but if it comes to you, then you know how to respond. And again, Saba is nothing but sugar. And sugar is nothing but suffer.

00:50:57--> 00:51:05

So May Allah subhanaw taala granted to us, and it's on both of them sovereign shellcode are known as the prophets lie. Some said they're both half of the map. Alon Yeah.

00:51:31--> 00:52:04

Last time I mentioned sin, that's Allah. Right? He mentioned that there's in the Quran even that there are certain things that are consistent that are lost pounds, how it always does and so on so forth. So certainly in the LA home when it comes to who you saw Luna Allah and maybe a loss of Hannah Montana and the angel send their peace and blessings upon the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam in the command is to us yeah, even at the nominal salary, he was selling motors NEMA. So we are to send our peace and blessings on the profit slice on but in Salah it's not mature, it's not legislated and so on. So the response is not insula here, because everybody is different at that

00:52:04--> 00:52:04

point.

00:52:07--> 00:52:07

Vanya

00:52:18--> 00:52:57

Baba in Africa, Elena Sabra, with a bit of a domino is again, why we're saying that there isn't a condemnation of asking a lot for submit as a whole. There's a condemnation of expecting a hardship. So if you ask Allah Subhana Allah for submitted in the means that you're asking Allah for hardship, that you have no hope of alleviating that hardship, then that represents a, that's a poor reflection of the way that you view your Creator. So that particular narration has a context to it. So that's, that actually proves the point. You can ask a lot for somebody you can ask a lot for Earth about you can ask a lot for us the karma, it's quite regular to do so. But in a particular situation that you

00:52:57--> 00:53:12

have in life, ask a lot to alleviate your hardship, ask a lot to alleviate your hardship. But if the hardship comes to you, and you're in the hardship, ask lots of great use about as well as a lot of gratitude firmness as well. So the Hadeeth has a context and narration as a context to it alone.

00:53:14--> 00:53:17

Anyone else? sisters, no questions from you.

00:53:18--> 00:53:19

Okay, yeah.

00:53:32--> 00:53:32

Southern law

00:53:34--> 00:53:38

shift. Yes, it is your law guy. So I'm gonna take the liberty

00:53:39--> 00:53:42

of no fat, which should be given when she answers nbrc.

00:53:44--> 00:53:57

So that's a fifth of salako. I have an opinion on it. I have it but I'd rather you ask him a challenge on that particular question. Because that's, that is an area of st laugh, whether you can make your app in federal aid or not often in the camera,

00:53:58--> 00:54:04

whether you can respond to the Imam, whether there is a complete word, there's always a certain response on so forth. So yes.

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

Yeah.

00:54:28--> 00:54:35

Everything has a context, everything. So there's patience. So let's say for example, a woman is being beaten by her husband.

00:54:36--> 00:54:39

The most honest Islamic thing in the world to do is to tell her to have

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

that's the most honest Islamic thing that you could possibly say to her at that point. So the prophets lie some never told anybody that came to him and complained of marlim complained of transgression will have patience. Instead, he strove to do away with the oppression right?

00:55:00--> 00:55:35

Your own personal life, what you have to decide is that there are going to be times where you take the high road. Right You take the high road you express patience and transgressions are of different levels. If by you being passive with the transgression that was done towards you, you are enabling an oppressor or empowering an oppressor, then you've actually made a mistake, you've actually done something very uneconomic. So there's, you know, hardship caused by people hardship that's caused or hardship, that's natural, and so on, so forth. And again, there are different levels of transgression, and you have to decide whether you're enabling an oppressor. And to be honest, that's

00:55:35--> 00:55:48

not going to come except by a neutral observer, or someone objective on the outside. Because if you really want to find an excuse to not show patience, you'll find that excuse. Right? So lots of different types.

00:55:50--> 00:55:52

Anyone else? Yes?

00:55:58--> 00:55:59

Can you raise your voice a little bit I'm sorry,

00:56:09--> 00:56:19

a sub mental hula, we're going to talk about that that patience is that the first strike so we still have a long way to go with the book of patience. And a lot of these questions will even be further elaborated on Michelle, is that the question?

00:56:30--> 00:57:08

If you were to have patience after the first strike, so later on, you have patience with it is there a reward, there could be a reward, but the greatest reward is on the sub month aluna the greatest rewards at the first strike, but yes, there is a reward for it, depending on the calamity, because some calamities are long living, some calamities have longer lasting effects and so on, so forth. So depending on the level of that calamity, so a lot depends, you know, look. So for example, if I was sick, and then I and then I was cured from that sickness, by the, by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala. And when I'm healthy, I said, You know, I try to express some patience, there's no, there's

00:57:08--> 00:57:22

no benefit to that whatsoever. But if I'm suffering from the lingering effects of a calamity or a trial, and I'm maintaining patience, and I'm trying to maintain patience, then Allah subhanaw taala will certainly reward that inshallah.

00:57:25--> 00:57:25

Yeah,

00:57:46--> 00:57:48

you have no feelings.

00:57:50--> 00:57:51

Okay.

00:57:52--> 00:58:26

So the question is, how can you tell the difference between whether you're being patient or whether you just like feelings. Now, there are certainly some people that are more empathetic, more sympathetic, and some people somehow, you know, one thing that you come to appreciate, sometimes it's for a person's, it's for the good of a family that a person has been created, like with a person has a little bit more of a stern personality to anchor the ship. And, you know, when everybody else is flipping out and crying and going crazy, there's that person that doesn't cry much, but that person that really just keeps everything stable, and so on, so forth. Sometimes it's

00:58:26--> 00:58:32

really an airman of a loss of habitat on a group of people and we've been created in different ways.

00:58:33--> 00:59:06

What I will mention is that when you you know, so handle it in this regard. Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't want to see you in a mess and Allah subhanaw taala, you know, it's not like Allah will punish you. Because you aren't going crazy and so on so forth, or because you you didn't have feelings about that certain thing, because it could be an you know, we are such complex. We have always psychiatrists, here, man, we're such complex human beings. How many psychiatrists are here, raise your hands. All of our shrinks back without anyone and this is so.

00:59:07--> 00:59:09

So correct me if I'm wrong.

00:59:10--> 00:59:14

But I'm going to talk I'm going to put my psychiatrist hat on, which is non existent. Okay.

00:59:15--> 00:59:30

So how long were such complex human beings, our experiences make us who we are. And we don't know why we've been crafted in the way that we are. Some people are more prone to crying than others and more prone to empathy and sympathy, and so on, so forth. So it's not like a loss of habitat will be angry with you.

00:59:31--> 00:59:59

But when someone passes away, even if you don't feel like this heartbreak, they make you out for them. Right? So try to sincerely make do out for them. And that's what's required from you. It's not like the person that passed away is gonna come to you on the day of judgment and be like, you weren't really that sad. And I know it right. No, it's how much did you make, how much sacajawea did you do and how much you know? That's what's your good, that's what you're going to be asked about on the Day of Judgment. So focus on that, instead of just feelings and so on, so forth.

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

One knows best.

01:00:08--> 01:00:18

Well, not questioning the decree of Allah is the first, the first step of it. So we're going to talk about categories of patients inshallah, the day after tomorrow, inshallah, we'll alternate. Myself and chef. Yes.

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

Yeah.

01:00:39--> 01:00:46

You just asked a very deep theological question. And the answer to it is pretty amazing. Not because I'm giving it Alright, but

01:00:48--> 01:01:00

because I asked this question once to one of my teachers. I asked it to him after Hajj. I was like the question. Oh, sorry. Yeah. No, that's this part of the amazingness of the answers that you don't know what the question is.

01:01:02--> 01:01:39

But, no, the question is, like, if Allah frees you from Hellfire at some point in your life, then like, can you undo that or what's left for the rest of the life right like so let's say for example, you fasted Ramadan, Allah wrote you down from an earth thought he wrote you down from those being freed from Hellfire, or you went to Hajj. Lisa, who does a hedging mobile release, Allahu de la agenda, and Jenna's guaranteed for you and so on, so forth. So can you do anything in life to really mess that up? And how do you know? I mean, should you just kind of laid back after that? So I asked one of my teachers this after hedge, so I've been blessed to do hedge multiple times. And some

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

hedges have been amazing, and some hedges not so amazing. Great, to be quite honest with you. I think we're all you know, it depends on the group. Mashallah, you guys had an amazing group, I had a great I had a few great groups, and I had a few not so great groups that kind of spoiled my mood a little bit as a hedge leader. And I was like, you know, shift, like, if I got it, like, if I know, like, I did alpha, right.

01:02:01--> 01:02:44

And I know, you know, like, I know, it's not just the one below, but like, I felt closer to Allah for those hours than Never before in my life. And that was the most amazing alpha that I had in my life. Like, can I be assured? And he said that that uncertainty is what will keep you going at the next alpha. So being uncertain if you receive that reward or not, is actually one of the greatest blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Okay. And the answer to that question is when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the people of beddit maluma said to him, Do want you want a loss of haddaway to Allah has forgiven you for everything you've done in the past and everything you've

01:02:44--> 01:02:57

done in the future. Can you imagine that people have bedded were given an open door to basically live their lives as they wanted to for the rest of their lives? So it could it can't come around and they could have been like, we're good.

01:02:58--> 01:03:07

We got that reward, like let all these other people that didn't go to bed if you guys go fight our heads, we're gonna hang out here. Darla who needs to do that Allah

01:03:08--> 01:03:48

needs to do the AMA lane. We're good. But the point being here, that could it be that Allah has written down for you this reward in sha Allah we asked a lot that this Ramadan in that previous homophones he wrote us down from those free from Hellfire Yes, it could be however, the true worshipper of Allah subhana wa tada never stops worshiping and that uncertainty of not knowing is one of the greatest blessings from a loss of habitat in your life. And it's for your own good like it's not you know, after Ramadan it's not like you know, you get to see this dream and you know that you've been accepted and so on so forth. It's for your own good that you don't know. It's for your

01:03:48--> 01:03:55

own good that you don't know. You know, when people say what are the signs of an accepted Ramadan? What's the sign?

01:03:57--> 01:03:58

Does the healer like come different?

01:04:00--> 01:04:16

Does it rise like in the opposite direction? Is it like you're gonna see this dream? We have an obsession with dreams right? Just like with this, the hotter you're gonna see some colors and stuff like that, like, Green means yes, red means failed the normal bond. None of that what's the sign of an accepted Ramadan?

01:04:17--> 01:04:20

continuation of these what's the sign of an accepted Hajj

01:04:21--> 01:04:31

continuation of these? The sign of an accepted anything in Islam is continuation, a lack of continuation a lack of continuity as a sign of rejection.

01:04:32--> 01:04:59

Okay, so continuity is what you focus on. Let a lot keep writing you down from those that have been freed from hellfire. Allah knows that we could use it more than once to be written down from it. So yeah, my shift he was like, he was like, What do you mean, you know, like, I was like, sick like I really felt that this year like I'm kind of feeling like, you know, he was like, you could go do something that will completely ruin that. He's like, you're not from us hobbled by that you're not from the people above it. It's not like a lost title.

01:05:00--> 01:05:16

You had an amazing hygiene, amazing Ramadan, airmen who mesh it to them, go ahead and do what you want. Now, you don't get that only the Sahaba had the sincerity to be tested with something like that. And truly they were tested. That's a major test to be told by the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, you're done.

01:05:18--> 01:05:51

That's a major test, like what would happen as if we were in that position? Seriously, I know what I know that I would not be here next year. Doing decaf. Okay, I would be sleeping right now. You know, but we're not the Sahaba. Only the sahabas hearts were at that level at that quality because like we talked about in the hotter at some point there's higher there's like a modesty a shyness to disobey a loss of parents is not even just about punishment. I'm shy. He's so merciful. He's so loving. He's given me so much. I feel shy to disobey Him, or to use the faculties he's given me

01:05:53--> 01:05:54

to disobey Him alone.

01:05:56--> 01:05:57

All right, this is going really long. So

01:06:00--> 01:06:00

yeah.

01:06:16--> 01:06:19

Yeah, so the prophets lie some flr kuno abdon, Shakira,

01:06:20--> 01:06:57

the prophets lie some himself. I mean, being told that he's been forgiven for everything before and everything after, who has the heart of the Messenger of Allah lies on them, to literally stand up until it pains him not even just to stand up and beyond. Until, you know, until it's a little inconvenient, no till pains until his feet swell up and to say, shouldn't I be a grateful servants? And that shows you Subhana Allah that the best thing you can gain is a loss of autonomy. If you gain that relationship with Allah subhanaw taala to where you stop seeing it, like, like credits and debits, your good deeds and sins, just like credits and debits, and you actually see it in a

01:06:57--> 01:07:15

holistic sense, like this is personal for you, hold on. I'm gonna end it because it's gone too late inshallah Tada, so, we'll have some time for personal reflection. We'll start RPM inshallah. Tada 245, Sacramento, Hayden's powerful and shadow stock required to break salam o Samana, Vina Mohammed
