When a user in our su Sula who fuck out the fires are frozen or Lima for my my beret. We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and thanking him and bearing witness that he has no partners, that no one has the right to be worshipped and unconditionally obeyed except for him Subhan Allah to Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa

00:02:08 --> 00:02:45

Salam is his final messenger, who Allah subhanho wa Taala sent as a mercy to all the worlds as an example for you and I, and we ask Allah to allow us to be resurrected in his presence, are they his salatu salam with his family with his companions and those that follow until the Day of Judgment, we ask Allah subhanaw taala to make make us amongst those that adhere to his sunnah in this world, in this life and die upon it. Allah, Allah, I mean, the brothers and sisters, there's a verse in the Quran that is frequently quoted, and it's quoted when we're going through hardships in life. It's quoted when we face a crisis when we face

00:02:46 --> 00:03:25

times in our lives where we have to make very difficult decisions. It's quoted when you're applying for a job, and you get that job and you realize that though the job is well paying. And though the job offers some serious benefits and career advancement, and though you can find the fatwa that might justify you're taking that job, you know that your heart is not at ease with it, because there's something about it, that's not valid, there's something about it, that was all the justifications, you know, deep down in your heart. It's just not, it's not going to work. You face a business deal. You know, in your existing career and your existing job and you know that something's

00:03:25 --> 00:04:03

not right with it. You're putting a situation where you've been selling camo, you've been selling alcohol, or you've been selling pork, or you've been selling something that could literally earn your destruction on the Day of Judgment, if the profit slice and I'm cursed. The person who makes the grapes or who provides the grapes that are used to make Hummer, then what about the one that sells it, and you come to a crisis in your life? And you say, Well, if I remove the alcohol from my gas station or from my store, how much am I going to suffer? What are the loss is going to be you face a situation where, you know, you have two jobs both being offered to you at the same time, one

00:04:03 --> 00:04:47

of them is a lot less pain pays a lot less, but you know that it's halal risk, you know that it's halal sustenance. So you have to choose whether or not you're going to take a little bit of haram or you're going to take a lot of halacha and your daily interactions, the things that you go through, you face a situation where by adhering to your principles as a Muslim, you're put in a very awkward situation with your family. Right you're you know, you can't go to a certain function, you can't be a part of a certain function. You can't purchase a certain thing. We go through all of these situations. And the verse that is most relevant to all of this is one then we attack the Lucha

00:04:47 --> 00:05:00

Allahu Maharajah we are Zuko min Havildar Yatta So, Whoever fears Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and Allah made it unrestricted. Not when many tequila family he Whoever fears Allah with his wife

00:05:00 --> 00:05:40

also Whoever fears Allah with his family or whoever fears Allah with his with his non Muslim neighbors or with his society, Whoever fears Allah, Allah will make a way out for that person yet. Allahu Maharaja, we are Zuko and havila. Yet Assam and Allah takes it upon himself to provide for that person from places with avenues that he would have never even considered before. Man is tested. Why? Because when you're making that decision, you're already thinking about, well, what's going to happen here and how am I going to make it here and how am I going to make it there which is legislated. It's much shorter, you're supposed to be thinking about your next step. You're supposed

00:05:40 --> 00:06:25

to be planning, how you're going to go about things. But Allah subhanaw taala brings about an avenue that was never even your plans. You never even thought about it. You got to Zuko Min havila. An imam has sung at Muhammad Amin Hashem Katie Rahim, Allah to Allah. He says that, and it's implied while many a tequila yadgir Allah who, you know Allahumma Raja, while you're Zuko and havila Yeah, Tessa that Allah will provide to him from means or with avenues that he never thought before. He said that it's implied with this idea as well. That Whoever fears Allah with all of his avenues, with each and every single one of them, Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will plan amazing things for him. Amazing

00:06:25 --> 00:07:03

things for him. We also learned from this idea that Allah Subhana Allah has not mentioned the degree of the difficulty in that Maharaj in that exit. So if you're in a room and you have an exit, it could be a very difficult exit or it could be a very easy exit sometimes Masha Allah Azza botica Allah sometimes someone quits a haram job and just like that, it's so connected. It's so beautiful. It's so obvious, like Halal sustenance comes to them out of nowhere. And you're just like Subhanallah you can easily connect the two. I've seen people that on the same day, they left something that was haram, they got a phone call and they got something that was Hello. Sometimes

00:07:03 --> 00:07:51

it's very easy. Sometimes a person struggles for years. And then sometimes, Allah subhanho wa Taala provides that person a way out or provides them another form of risk, another form of sustenance, but they don't connect that new form of sustenance to the one that was closed for them the door that was closed for them. Why because they restrict the risk. They restrict sustenance to money to wealth, and they don't realize that sustenance means so much more than money. You're your close friend in life is sustenance. Your family members are risk. Your food is everything in Islam, everything from your child to the food on your plate is a form of sustenance from Allah subhanaw

00:07:51 --> 00:07:52

taala it's,

00:07:53 --> 00:08:32

I consider my close friends to be all this from Allah subhanaw taala I consider my machete to be list from Allah. I consider my family members to be list from Allah subhanaw taala I consider all of that to be this from Allah. The believer has to see all of this as just from Allah sustenance from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And I wanted to go over a few examples Inshallah, from the seed of the Prophet slice I'm in from the blessed companion so that we can properly understand this concept, a very famous incidence that many of us have heard about omnibenevolent Tabata, the Allahu anhu, where once or not all the Allahu Teina and who was walking on one of his famous night patrols. During the

00:08:32 --> 00:09:11

night times, Alma did not use to sleep as Khalifa. He used to walk through the streets and patrol the OMA not to spy on them not to hold a club or a stick so that if he saw anybody and start beating them mercilessly and send them home, not to make sure that the youth were not out partying, to make sure that the youth were fed, to make sure that people were being taken care of, to make sure that if if a woman went into delivery in the middle of the night, that she would have helped. And so Subhanallah we find on these night patrols entire sections of all aerial photography, a lot more on these night patrols, one of them where he actually came across a household where a woman went into

00:09:11 --> 00:09:46

delivery. And he went and he brought his wife on consume. The daughter of Ali and Fatima, the granddaughter of the prophets, like some and unconsumed delivered that child with that woman. That's what the night patrols of Armada were like, on this particular night patrol. And he's to take a different one of his children every single time teaching them the ethics of Islam teaching them these these great morals, these great these great qualities, like territory and empathy. He goes with in this situation, his fried servant by the name of a slum.

00:09:48 --> 00:09:56

And as he's walking the streets with a slum, he comes across the household and he hears a conversation between a mother mother and her daughter.

00:09:57 --> 00:09:59

And the mother is telling her daughter

00:10:00 --> 00:10:37

to dilute the milk to take the milk and to add water to its why so that can become more so that they would be able to sustain themselves with more. Now although the Allahu Anhu forbade in his Khilafah he forbade people to add water to milk or to dilute any product because obviously can lead to disruption in the marketplace. That's why cologne doesn't smell the same everywhere, right? Some people watered down their cologne some people sell it to you and it's with its full concentration. All metal the Allahu Anhu forbade that with food to cover up bad grain with good grain to dilute the milk to dilute your perfumes to dilute your cologne. He forbade at all why? Because it could lead to

00:10:37 --> 00:11:18

deception. So this woman is telling her daughter, there's a mother and her daughter and the mother tells the daughter to add water to the milk so that they can increase the quantity of it. And the daughter says to the mother, but don't you know that amount of money Don't you know that the commander of the believers has forbidden that. And the woman not knowing that big Omar is outside of the house says to her daughter what Anaa Alma Where's Ahmad right now? It's okay. We can cheat this time. And Omar is not going to find out about this no matter the law and who is listening to the entire conversation. And this young girl responds to the mother and says yeah, oh me, my icon to the

00:11:19 --> 00:12:07

roof Allah Allah wa Khalifa officer. Oh, my mother I will not obey him in public and disobey him in private in Cana. amatola Rana, if Allah can't see us, for ILA, who are more than the lord of Alma guarana, he always sees us as Pamela. ALMA is listening to the conversation and the girl is telling her mom that if Alma can't see us, oh my God sees us in these moments and it's interesting because she didn't disqualify the idea that maybe a lot of us see us right now. Maybe he is listening in on this conversation. And so she refuses Oh my God allow China and hotels Aslam mark the door that he say mark the door so that he could come back like a like a Nazi and, and expel everyone in there and

00:12:07 --> 00:12:27

beat up the mother because he heard her telling her daughter Don't listen to her money. Did he say that? You know we're gonna make sure that we treat this family in a certain way or model the law and we just told us slum mark the door I want to remember this house. He goes to his children he gathers his sons and oh my god Allah Allah says which one of you is not married?

00:12:28 --> 00:13:08

Awesome. The son of Ahmed says I'm the one I'm looking for I myself I'm looking for a wife so I'll model the Allah and we said okay, he said Aslam find out some more information about that household. So Aslam goes and he inquires about that household and it comes back to Amara the Allahu Anhu. When he says to Omar, he says that this is a widow. And her daughter, literally it's two women, it's a mother and her daughter. The father died a long time ago he was you know, yeah, he was some sort of tribal dispute and he was killed a long time ago. And so they're barely making it. Their means are very little, or model the Allahu taala. And who says, find out if the young girl is married or

00:13:08 --> 00:13:15

engaged. So as some comes back and says, she's not engaged to anybody, and then the Khalifa.

00:13:16 --> 00:13:56

The greatest leader in the world takes his son awesome to propose to that girl Subhanallah these poor people in the Ummah, a widow and her daughter, that don't have anything that are barely making it, on the basis of that young girls taqwa, on the basis of her manifest fear of Allah subhanaw taala the fact that she was still aware of Allah, the fact that she was able to be conscious of Allah, you know, we can say a tequila and we can say that we're mindful of Alana easy times, but the fact that she was with Allah and that time of difficulty and she was still conscious of the sight of Allah subhanaw taala in that time of difficulty, and there is a lot you know, even though I am

00:13:56 --> 00:14:32

Rahim, Allah to Allah, he actually wrote about this and he said that there are actually a lot of good qualities in marriage that come with this as well. If this helps, was there, this idea of preserving the sight of Allah subhanaw taala, being aware of the sight of Allah subhanaw taala and not allowing that to lead to an abuse of the rights of Allah Subhana Allah out of them, this is also a woman that will not abuse the rights of her husband and the husband would not abuse the rights of that woman. Because it's a family that fears Allah and Allah legislate taqwa in a marriage, you have to think of the right of Allah. Otherwise, you'll keep taking advantage of each other. So there are

00:14:32 --> 00:14:59

benefits to this. Oh my God, Allah and who takes his son awesome. And they propose to this young girl and she marries awesome. And they have a daughter by the name of Leila, who goes on to marry a man by the name of Abdullah as even Marwan who has a child by the name of Omar Abdullah Aziz Rahim Allah Tada. This is the grandmother of the great Khalifa or Omar bin Abdullah.

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

CS Rahim Allah Allah to Allah. Wa manga tequila Yaga Allahu Maharajah. We are so common Havilah Whoever fears Allah, Allah will make a way out for them and will provide them in ways from ways that they would have never expected or not even Abdulaziz is a means of risk for that for that woman. That's the sustenance of that woman. She gains by that Taqwa. Not you know a particular amount of money because Mind you the house of Amato, the Allahu Anhu was very poor, even as he was the Khalifa. They struggled more than anyone else in the OMA, they financially. We're not we're probably not better off than that girl. They they themselves starved at nights on the Allahu Anhu almost died

00:15:42 --> 00:16:25

out of starvation as the hadith of this ummah. So it's not that Allah subhanaw taala made her richer. But you know what, I would argue that having a hotdog as your father in law, and having Omar bin Abdulaziz as your grandson is a form of risk as well. That sustenance all of the good deeds of Amara bin Abdulaziz go to that woman now. We don't even know her name for sure. And subhanAllah she gains all of the goodness of Ahmed bin Abdulaziz why she maintained that honesty, she knew Allah would take care of her. She didn't say to her mother, let's fear Allah and Allah will bring about a different amount of milk for us. No, it was just Allah sees us. And by Allah seeing us, I know that

00:16:25 --> 00:17:06

Allah is going to take care of us. Something will come out of this we have to hold strong we have to hold patience. And sometimes that list is provided in things that are not material at all. See here we can say okay, well the grandson, Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, she married the daughter of the head of state, okay, there's some there. There's definitely some protection benefit that comes from them. Sometimes you can't see it at all. In the story of APMs ruderal the Allahu Taala and Abdullah bin Masaru Radi Allahu taala. And who, who says that I was a slave of Allah Akbar bin Abbey more, it's one of the fiercest enemies of the Prophet, slice Allah. And I was 13 years old. And he said I was

00:17:06 --> 00:17:12

tending to the sheep on the outskirts of Mecca. Just like the prophets, my son, I'm used to when he was a young man.

00:17:14 --> 00:17:19

And he says that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam came to me with along with aboubaker, so they called the Allahu taala. And,

00:17:20 --> 00:18:00

and I didn't know who either of them were just these two beautiful, you know, men that came to me as I was tending to their sheep on the outskirts of Mecca and the prophets like Selim, he said to me, Hannah, come in chat and feed her love. And do you have, you know, a sheep that has some milk or a goat that we can take milk from? We're thirsty. Is there anything you can provide for us? Can we take some milk from from one of your sheep? And I'm loving this little the alongside I know, he says to the Prophet, sallAllahu alayhi wa sallam. He says, now he said, Yes, I do. To be honest, I do have goats and I do have sheep that can produce milk. While I can eat hula tama, but I'm a young man

00:18:00 --> 00:18:25

that's been entrusted. Meaning what? They're not my sheep, and they're not my goats. So I can't make the decision. Whether or not to give you I would have to ask Robin Abbey more eight, who's the owner of the sheep and the owner of these goats. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he smiled at him. He didn't push him. He didn't say to him, you know, hey, you know, I don't know if you know who I am.

00:18:26 --> 00:18:55

But I'm a messenger of God, you should probably give me one of these sheep. And I'll show you something. I'll do something for you. The prophets lie. Some didn't offer to bribe him. Right? He didn't say okay, well, it's okay. You don't have to tell a joke about anything. Here's $10 The Prophet SAW Salem, he admired that about him. The prophets I seldom said to him, Well, how about you bring me one that doesn't produce milk? Can you bring me a goat that doesn't produce any milk? So I'm delighted Mr. Lutz said okay. I don't know what you're gonna do with it. But okay.

00:18:56 --> 00:19:13

So he brought it forth. And he said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he kneeled and he says further, I'm Nabil SallAllahu, alayhi wa sallam. Yaga, who Allah is shot, he said, the prophet so I said, I'm starting to put he put his his hands on the shutters, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says, Bismillah

00:19:14 --> 00:19:22

in the name of Allah. He says, For either of you hurry, I'm telling you Levana he says suddenly, he started to produce milk like crazy.

00:19:24 --> 00:20:00

And he said, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says Sacani Anna first he gave me something to drink from it. Some masala A B Becker. And then he gave Abubaker something to drink from it. So machete women who sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and then the Prophet slice him himself drink from it. So Ben was rude is drinking and he sees a whole bucket of drinking from and he sees the Prophet slice I'm drinking. And the prophets lie Selim afterwards he says Alhamdulillah so he praises Allah subhanaw taala. He thanked me, and then he starts to go on his way. And he says as for the goat ad that came back on it and went back to not producing an

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

milk at all.

00:20:02 --> 00:20:24

So he said that while the prophets lie, some was walking away, he said, I called out to him and I said, Yeah, he said Uncle aluminum and how they're gonna let the culture teach me those words that you just said I want to be able to produce milk from these goats as well. And he said the prophets lie some came up to me. One must have Allah Saudi, and he wiped on my chest. And he says in Nicola, what time

00:20:25 --> 00:20:43

you are a year I'm sorry in that Corolla, more alum. He says, You are a learned young man, you're a good young man. You're smart. You're good. You have good qualities. You're a good young man. You have good qualities. You're gonna figure stuff out Subhan Allah, he's telling him you will figure it out.

00:20:44 --> 00:21:14

The Prophet slicin and walked away. Even Massoud said, I went to the city and I started to find anyone that I could ask about him. He said, the first person I came across was was Abbas of the Allaha. And when an ibis was selling perfume, he was known to sell perfume. So as he said, I went to him and I said, Do you know who these two men are? and I both said, Who are they? So he said, I described the two men to him. He said, That's my nephew, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he said, where is he? And so al Abbas pointed him towards the outcome, the place where the prophets lie, some would meet those young men.

00:21:15 --> 00:21:38

And they went to that place had been Mr. Little the Allahu Anhu went to that place, and the prophets lie some Psalm and the Prophet slicin immediately recognize them and he smiled, he knew that he sparked that curiosity. In the heart of the big mystery little the Allahu taala. And, and even Mr. Trudeau, the alo I'm who said, what is it that you're teaching? What is I want to know what it is? And guess what? He became a Muslim.

00:21:39 --> 00:21:42

Now, did he become rich as a result of it? No.

00:21:44 --> 00:22:20

He did not become rich. Did everything you know, did he gained some sort of protection? No. In fact, he went from being a slave that wasn't persecuted to a slave that's beaten publicly. They've been mistreated, becomes the first man to recite the Quran publicly and is almost killed for it. And you know what? It's not like when the glory days of Islam came around the minister who got rich, no, even Mr. roods wife is this is the first press the first time in Islam we see a woman giving sadaqa or giving the cat to her husband, as the wife of human misery with having to give sadaqa to him and gives us a cocktail, give charity to him. So you know what his financial situation did not really

00:22:20 --> 00:22:21

get better.

00:22:22 --> 00:23:06

But you know what Allah subhanaw taala gave him as a result of his fear of Allah. He gave him the companionship of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, as a result of his trustworthiness as a result of his honesty. Because for him, it wasn't even the fear of Allah. It was really just his honesty, his truthfulness, his ethical behavior, Allah gave him the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa salam. Allah gave him a status that cannot be rivaled except by a small a handful of people in our history. Allah gave him something so much more than anything material. Why? Because he was honest, because he was trustworthy because he was truthful and Abdullah and all model the Allah Tala, I'm

00:23:06 --> 00:23:45

home, he said that Verily, Allah subhana, which Allah provides for the honest businessman, even if he's a cough, even if he's a non believer, the way that he provides for his what he the way he provides for his beloved servants. When Allah sees an honest non Muslim, Allah will provide them with this. Allah gives them sustenance, because Allah loves sick, he loves honesty. And the hardest thing to be honest with in life is your money. The hardest thing to be honest with look, you can be the martial law guy in the masjid. But when people do business with you, you quickly become the stuff for Allah guy. People don't want to deal with you at all. And how many times did you see

00:23:45 --> 00:24:20

someone in the masjid and think mashallah, I want to do business with that brother. And quickly you regretted that when you realize that just because that person prays in the messenger does not necessarily translate into ethical behavior in business? And you could have been the unethical one, right? But the point is, is that that's where it becomes hardest to be honest and trustworthy and truthful. But guess what? It been Massoud maintained it? Look what Allah subhanaw taala gave him as a result. Well, many Tapiola judge Allah Who Maharajah or Zuko when Hayfield I tested, and I'll give you one final incident here and then inshallah to Allah will just share a few reflections on it.

00:24:21 --> 00:24:24

Because I mentioned the name of an old model the Allahu taala. I'm

00:24:25 --> 00:24:59

Abdullah bin UModel, the Allahu Taala and who once goes out, and even Omar was known for freeing slaves. He used to use his money to free slaves he died having you know, and he freed hundreds and hundreds of slaves before his death. But even a model the allowance I know used to prioritize right to slaves. He used to go out and find rights his people and freedom and the love and Amato the Allah Tada and was laughing narrates he wants went out, and he saw a shepherd. Just like the prophets lie, some saw had been Massoud, and he wanted to put that Shepherd to the test.

00:25:00 --> 00:25:08

So he told the shepherd, he said, bring me one of your seat bring me a goat that produces milk, I want some milk, I want to drink from it.

00:25:09 --> 00:25:42

And he says that Animam Luke one more time, he said, I'm owned, and I've been entrusted And subhanAllah when the slave answered like that I'm owned, I'm asleep. And I've been entrusted by my master. He was disqualifying the idea that, you know, that even though I'm asleep, I can't even I can't even you know, get get out of this in a conniving fat fashion. I can't give you something without him knowing. So he said, I'm, I'm Luke Turman. I'm an I'm a slave, and I'm an interested slave. I've been entrusted by my master. And they've been modeled the Allahu Taala and said, Well, give me one of your sheep. I'll take it.

00:25:43 --> 00:25:45

And the man said, No, I'm not gonna give you anything.

00:25:47 --> 00:25:52

Even Omar will be allowed to Allah and he says, Well, just give me one of them and I'll pay you something.

00:25:54 --> 00:26:12

And he said, No, I don't want anything. Even ominous says, I'll give you 100 The knobs. The man said, No. He said, I'll give you 1000 dinars. The man said no. If you no matter what the law of China and he said, why he said, and the Monroe como turban. I can't do it. I'm owned and I've been entrusted.

00:26:14 --> 00:26:21

And so even Omar will be allowed to other animals said, Just tell your master when he comes back, that a wolf ate one of the sheep.

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

So it'd been Omar is actually giving him excuses to cheat. He says when he comes, just tell him that a wolf ate one of the sheep. And the man responded to have been on model the Allahu Anhu and says, well, Mother Akula. And what am I going to tell Allah

00:26:39 --> 00:27:23

Subhan Allah, what will I tell Allah? I can tell I can tell my master that the sheep was taken away, but what am I going to tell Allah? Allah knows, what am I going to tell Allah? Even Amato, the Allahu Anhu he smiled. And he says Kadima at Apopka for dunya. The word that you just said, has freed you in this world. What is at Allah, Antarctica, Antarctica to Metallica, I ask Allah that that word will free you on the day that you meet him. Just as it has freed you from slavery in this world, I'm going to use my money to free you from slavery. I ask Allah that on the Day of Judgment, just those words, Mother Akula. What will I say to Allah are enough to free you from hellfire. Some

00:27:23 --> 00:28:00

of you might have seen there was a YouTube video about a year and a half ago, of a man, a shepherd in Saudi Arabia. And some people actually experimented the way that had been audited, they went to him and they said to him, we'll give you this much Riyaz we'll pay you this, we'll pay you that. Just tell tell your master that you know that it got lost that something happened to it. And the man said, Well, what am I going to say to Allah? When I go to the grave? What am I going to say? And subhanAllah that video went viral on YouTube. And in fact, the man was was from Sudan and the Sudanese embassy gave him the amount of money that was offered 100,000 riyals and held the

00:28:00 --> 00:28:05

celebration for him. Found a la familia tequila, Hey,

00:28:06 --> 00:28:46

as long as you're aware of Allah, Allah makes a way out for you. Allah will always make a way out for you way out as a woman, hey, fanaticism, and Allah provides free. Now I know that these are shepherds and sheep, and this is a different world. But guess what it carries over into our corporate world as well. It carries over into our daily interactions today as well. If you are able to think as soon as you are, as soon as you find yourself in one of these ethical dilemmas, what does Allah wants from me? And what does Allah subhanaw taala see this as? And what will Allah do for me, Allah will take care of you. And you have to have full faith in that. And the greatest issue

00:28:46 --> 00:29:01

that we have in this regard, more than anything else is once again, restricting the risk restricting the meaning of sustenance to money. You know what, if you really think about the friendships that you gained in your moments of hardship,

00:29:02 --> 00:29:38

the person that stuck by your side, the family member, the taqwa that you now had that because being poor makes you a little bit of humble, right? It puts you in a situation where you know what you're now demonstrating to Lakota and Allah subhanaw taala, you now have to trust the law in ways that you didn't have to before before you didn't have to think about these things before. You didn't have to ask Allah to protect your family from poverty. Now you're really afraid of it. Now you have to demonstrate some form of Tilak could when you're in these ethical dilemmas, all of that is risk all of that sustenance. Allah gave you a quality. Allah gave you a friend, Allah gave you a person,

00:29:38 --> 00:29:53

Allah gave you humility. Allah put you in a situation and you probably won't relate the two because you're still just gonna see your sadness. But it could be the reason why something good happens to you in life 2030 years later,

00:29:54 --> 00:29:59

and you did not connect the two, but to Allah, it was connected Allah

00:30:00 --> 00:30:27

Subhan Allah to Allah always rewards Taqwa. Allah always rewards honesty. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah Zack, the Sustainer will not fail to sustain someone who sought sustenance only from him subhanho wa taala. And who refused to do anything in the pursuit of their own sustenance, that would be disobedient to Allah subhanaw taala because they know that at the end of the day, it's all in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala

00:30:29 --> 00:31:09

and though we can't connect them, we can only continue to carry ourselves in that manner in that fashion. Where if people don't see us, Allah sees us. And you know what if people don't think anything is wrong with what you're doing, maybe Allah subhanaw taala does and that's another level of Taqwa where you will scrutinize everything that happens in a way that Allah Subhana Allah would be pleased with, not in a way that meets the standards of people, but rather in a way that meets the standard of Allah subhanaw taala We ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us element Nafeesa which is beneficial knowledge. This can play Cuba which is pure sustenance, while I'm alone with a Kabbalah

00:31:09 --> 00:31:45

and accepted good deeds we ask Allah subhanaw taala to free us from a situation in which we anger him in this world and to free us from the manifestation of His anger and hellfire in the next we ask Allah subhanaw taala that when we are placed in situations where we have to choose between deen and duniya that we always choose the deen and we ask Allah that as we choose the Dean he allows that to be a source of goodness in our dunya as well we ask Allah subhanaw taala to grant us the best of this world and the best of the next and to protect us from the Hellfire Allah Amin Akula Cody Harada was tougher Lalibela company satin was the main festival in the whole world before Rahim.

If everyone can move forward just for the last two minutes of the whole bunch of luck, so we can make space for those that are standing outside the brothers and sisters. There was once a question

00:32:17 --> 00:32:20

that one of the scholars asked.

00:32:22 --> 00:32:25

He said had Bilal or the Allahu Taala and

00:32:26 --> 00:32:27

Bilal even Baba,

00:32:28 --> 00:33:10

not stood up for his principles, and not believed in Allah subhanho wa taala, when he knew that it was the truth, and said to his master at the time, or may have no Hello, if I hadn't heard that there is one, one. Without all the Allahu Taala and who would not have been dragged in the street, we probably he probably wouldn't have been dragged in the street, he probably wouldn't have had a stone placed on his back, he probably would not have been beaten to a point of almost dying. But you know what else he also would have never become the man whose footsteps were heard by the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Jannah. A lot of times we see the immediate response to a person

00:33:10 --> 00:33:28

doing what they're supposed to be doing for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala. And we think to ourselves, why is Allah humiliating that person? Why is Allah humiliating me? Why is Allah hurting that person? Why is Allah hurting me? And that's because we're restricted to the temporary, we're restricted to the presence.

00:33:29 --> 00:34:08

And we start to connect the good that we've done to the bad that's happening to us. But look what happened to bedeviled the low tide. As a result, if you were to ask Bill out of the ultra Anhu right now, about the stone that was placed on his back about that week of torture that he went through. If you were to ask him right now, is it worth it? Or do you think he would tell you otherwise? Do you think any one of those companions that held to their principles and faced what they faced as a result of holding to their principles? Do you think any one of them would say now that it's not worth it? Absolutely not. And so just as we apply this in our individual lives, we have to apply it

00:34:08 --> 00:34:42

in our communities as well. So long as you're with Allah subhanaw taala and so long as you're truthful, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah will make a way out for you both as individuals and as communities when we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to remove any affliction from our community, and to make our personal lives lies of Taqwa and lies of sad the lives of fear of Allah subhanaw taala and consciousness and awareness of God as well as lives of happiness and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, to make us from from the mud sapien in all of our affairs from those who fear Allah in all of their affairs and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to fill our hearts with tequila and Iman and

00:34:42 --> 00:34:59

Exxon and the team with certainty and the pursuit of excellence in the sight of Allah subhana wa Bucha and we ask Allah to make us amongst those that achieve excellence which is the sight of his face, in general for the dose and the companionship of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Lama fit in what we need, I wouldn't want me not when will see me and I will Muslim at
