You and Adina hamdulillah took a lot of Apolo colons so these are you'll split it up to atma Allah, we have to look on Google welcome woman nuclear into our suitable for the first opposing Halima. Very, begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, declaring his perfection, and that none has the right to be
worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him Subhana wa Tada. And we bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa salam, this his final messenger, who was sent as a mercy to all of Allah's creation, and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to send his peace and blessings upon him, his family, his companions, and those that follow until the day of judgment and we ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us amongst them along the home in their brothers and sisters, and among others, Ali Hakim, Allah to Allah. He says in a few beautiful lines of poetry, he says either accountants in multiple level, fix it up, but he could have the same level wherever he said that if
a person is thinking about something deeply than everything around him around him lends itself to that thought. Meaning if he's thinking about Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and everything around him, reminds him of Allah subhanaw taala the Cody to Allah in the hope that somehow it will be that we may want to have that I asked in the only Allah knows Allah Subhana Allah says that in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are signs for people who reflect people who have pure thoughts, clear thoughts, they're thinking of Allah Subhana Allah to Adam, therefore the tree reminds them of Allah subhanaw taala the water reminds him of Allah
subhanaw taala the cars remind them of Allah subhanaw taala had their technology reminds him of ALLAH SubhanA wa it's Adam, there's their own creation reminds them of Allah Subhana Allah and everything around them, lends itself to that thicker to that that thought of Allah azza wa jal and if you're thinking about other than Allah subhanho, it's out and then everything around you reminds you of that thought as well. Now when it comes to the believer, the believer has this consistent attribute of consistently remembering Allah subhanaw taala. And therefore trying to please Allah Subhana Allah to Adam, with whatever circumstances he has, whatever is around him and whatever it
has been provided to him at the moment. And that's why the prophets I send them when he used to be asked and he would actually offload which of the actions is most beloved to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, the prophets like someone gave different answers. So one time in the province it some says that one will have gotten the most beloved actions to Allah are the ones that are consistent, even if they're small. One time the prophets lie, some says a salon to the walk, we have prayer on time, another time the prophets lie, some says a Salah to be elderly with the prayer at the beginning of its time. The point is those who lost my son gave different answers. And the mom hasn't lost the
document Allah, He commented on that. And he responded and he says that what we can derive from the message of the Prophet SAW Allah it was sentiment in this regard, that the most beloved action to ALLAH SubhanA Boyds Allah depends upon where you are, who you are, and at what time you are living. Okay, so the best action to Allah subhanaw taala out or what is most beloved to Allah subhanaw taala is that you are doing what Allah wants you to do, where Allah wants you to do it, what Allah wants you to do it how Allah wants you to do it. Okay? That you constantly trying to find a way to please Allah subhanaw taala despite your circumstances, this is called in the Arabic language and an
Islamic terrible terminology and he saw it
Seeking the reward, seeking the reward of your good deeds, seeking the reward of your trials and of your of your patients, seeking the reward of a loss palates, Adam, whether you are an easy or whether you when you are in hardship, and you might remember though, was a few weeks ago and no one remembers hope. After a few weeks, we talked about the iomega, tequila, he gets our
way on Zoom and hatred is that whoever fears Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will make a way out for him and Allah Subhana Allah will provide for him in ways that he never would have imagined. Why am I so what can I add Allah who will husband whoever depends on Allah Subhana Allah, Allah is in Africa. And the conclusion of that whole book was that sometimes Allah provides you the list that Allah provides you is different than what you gave for Allah subhanaw taala. And sometimes we restrict the whole concept of list to a man to money. So if I give $10 I need $20 In return, but as we said, It comes in many different ways. And we mentioned Subhanallah, the story of the shepherd, the video
that went viral on YouTube, which was based on a narration of even all the longtime animal, about the young shepherd. He wasn't so young, but the shepherd in Saudi Arabia, who was from a Sudan and the manner of testing him just as normal, the Allah Akbar once tested a man who was a shepherd, and said, Give me one of your sheep and he said, and then I'm Lupo determined that I am owned, and I am entrusted with the sheep. And eventually, even all the alarm after testing his resolve, he freed the man, as a result of that, we saw that there was this video that went online about this man that refused even for 200 that arms he said, 200 yards he said, even if you gave me 200,000 yards, I will
not I will not do so. And subhanAllah since that holds up, the Sudan, the embassy in Saudi Arabia actually had a press conference with them and handed him 200,000 In the US Subhan Allah as a result of his trustworthiness and saying that I will not give one of the sheep that has been entrusted to me by the owner, even if you gave me 200,000 The Knox realises this was
supposed to be law, be truthful with Allah, you're still Allah Subhana Allah, Allah will be truthful with you as well. So we said we can't restrict our list. So money is so much broader than that. Now, now, something very important stuff. When it comes to seeking the reward of something. It's not to necessarily seek the reward of it in dunya, but to seek the reward of it and the hereafter. And so for example, the prophets of Allah who it was sent him, I know that we have the trend, and it's very natural for us to want to live right next to the message. And this is the thing in Dallas, right? Most of the pops up, people move around the masjid. And I'm guilty as well, if you're three minutes
away, and if you're seven minutes away, there is a huge difference but the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he heard of a tribe, a tribe by the name of Daniel setting that wanted to move closer to the message of the prophets, I send them Sunday, stay where you are, because every single Coppola, every single step to the masjid has their awards. And Allah Subhana Allah Allah says, so next to all my demo what I found, so next to will not cut them over. I thought we will write down for them everything that they put forward and their footsteps. So the prophets I send them said, stay in your places and seek the reward of Allah subhanaw taala seek the reward of every single step
to the masjid. It's Pamela obey even the capital the Allah angle, and this is narrated in Asahi hain, he says that there was a man that lived very far from the masjid that he says kind of Mr. De Nasi.
Most of the time, he was actually the furthest person away from the masjid his home can you imagine, was the furthest away from the masjid? And he said he used to come to the masjid without any hate mom, no Jamal, no donkey, no camel, no car, okay, they didn't have cars back then anyway, but he used to walk to the masjid every single day, whether it was hot, or whether it wasn't so hot, whether it was day or whether it was night. So they mechanical the alarm says fatawa Jackson Allah, we hurt for him. We felt pain for him. So we told him, you know, if only you would at least ride a beast, you would ride a donkey or you would ride something to come to the masjid that would protect
you from the heat of the sun that would protect you from the harmful things of this earth that would prevent you from protect you from the scorpions and from anything of the earth. And he said, he said no, he says now ALLAH. He says because I seek the reward of each and every single step to the masjid. That's evil. I seek every single hotword every single step that I make to the mesic. I ask Allah Subhana Allah to reward me for them. And he recited the ayah as well. So next to Buma demo,
but couldn't say it nicely. Now.
I'm Phaeton. Number three and Allah Pantai says we will write down everything they brought forward and their footsteps. And when the prophets lie, some imperative documents or how we told the prophets lie some about the messenger of allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, and he has a reward for each and every single step on his way to the medicine, and await and leaving the most. The point is everything Allah azza wa jal has given to you has a potential to a certain potential. Coming to the rescue, we're all in the masjid and we ask Allah subhanaw taala to give us all the reward for Jamara Allah Allah me now, some people came after the event, you missed your chance. You're not
punished because you would have attended the salah. But you came after the event and the prophets of Allah Almighty Allah Salaam. He said that the angels have their role books. And one the Imam says A salaam aleikum, those books close, you missed your chance for the edges of Jamara Okay, and if you had some excuse, Allah knows your excuse, you don't have to come attack me after the whole thing. And say I took away your edge you have your excuse in front of Allah tenements out, but there was a certain reward that was associated with given here before the other and then the prophets like Selim said the earlier that you got here, the more the angels were sending their prayers upon, the more
Allah Subhana Allah look to you in a favorable light. And there were some people that parked maybe a little bit further from the masjid and some people that perhaps parked in an inappropriate way and if we didn't have a security guard would have blocked others maybe took a few more steps and the prophets Allah Allah onyx and I'm setting the Hadith in Sahih, Muslim from OSA even on the allowance and angle, that every single step to Jamaat if a person that is Muslim, he took his shower is back for Juma and he made his way seeking the pleasure of Allah subhanaw taala. With every step you took to get to Juma there was a year of piano and a year of Siyang. A year of the night prayer, imagine
if you pray to be every single night for a whole year, and a year of fasting associated with every single step that you took to the masjid. So there was an extra reward for suck. Now, I think we all agree that 10 years of pm and 10 years, obviously, there's a significant amount of damage Lea, it could have just been an extra 10 steps you took Subhan Allah maybe in part two spots over, Allah rewarded you more, the reward was greater as a movement. It's not just a black and white situation. It's not just you know, usually when we talk about law, we talk about something that you have to do and something that if you knew you're punished for it, we have that which is how often we have that
which is follows just like any system of law, we have that which is prohibited and that what you have to do, but at the same time you have that which is was to have mundu sunnah, that which is recommended, where you can increase your reward, if you don't do it, you won't be punished. But as a movement, as a believer, as someone who's seeking the pleasure of Allah subhana to have, you will do it, even though it's not fun, even though it's not mandatory. And there is that which is micro, there's that which is hated, there is some Killa and it's been tested by Allah Subhana Allah, but from the Mercy of Allah, He didn't forbid it for you. But as a believer, I'm not going to allow
myself to fall in those situations where it's cruel, because I want the pleasure of Allah subhana wa to add, I'm seeking something far higher than just breaking even here. Right. So how am I can you imagine I remember when when when we had the smoking cigarettes discussion, right, which by the way, there's a pretty conclusive agreement amongst the relevant at this point. All right. But when cigarettes first came out the answer if you tell someone who's smoking, yaki, tequila, fear Allah, you should abandon that. He says, it's just my crew.
That's like saying, Allah just hates it.
But he didn't make it. It's just a group. So it's an attitude that the believers should have. The believers should always want to make the most out of his situation. And subhanAllah this is true, by the way, in regards to a saga as well in regards to patients as well. The prophets of Allah it was set up, he suddenly had taken on Makati as his American by my other project, it will be a long time and other than what I have in the proper place, and I'm saying that if someone loses someone that is beloved to them, then you should say to that person, even though they love him, alpha woman to Allah belongs that which he has taken and that which He has given wearing them who could have shaken up
with some and Allah subhanaw taala has everything with its prescribed turn, its expiration date is already there. Fossil bib will
be patient and seek the reward from Allah subhanaw taala.
Meaning what in your tragedy Look, you're going to have to get over this. You're going to have to learn to be patient. But don't just be patient. Ask Allah subhana what's added to give you something more than that which was taken away to ask Allah to reward you for
Your patients ask Allah subhanaw taala to give you the best of that situation, and I'm beloved and above all the Allah was on. One day when he returned to a blog where he lived, his son passed away and they went to him and they told him that your son has passed away. However, this is one of his beloved children. And you can imagine how that news strikes you at first as soon as they told him that he said in that in that way, they had all Jarrell to Allah we belong to To Allah we return he got off of his Campbell he prayed to right guys after he finished his two records he said that I'm not that I'm I don't know how I'm gonna well but surely somebody we did as Allah commanded us to do,
and give glad tidings to the patients. Meaning what just as Allah says, Allah Dena Eva al Sabah tool so Eva onlu in Allah Allah, Allah Allah, Allah subhana wa says when tragedy comes to them, they say to Allah, we belong unto Allah, we return, and they seek some elevation in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala as a result of the tragedy that happened to them. And this is not something that you just do with major, major, major tragedy. It's something far greater than that. It's what do you really want Allah subhanaw taala to give you do you really want Allah azza wa jal to only give you this work, and so only better your dunya if you want something more than that. And the greatest
example of this up is what we've seen from us. Yeah, well, the Allah Allah, Allah Allah in the Quran, when she's being tortured by finale. And this is this is a woman that grew up her entire life in the palace of Princess that became a queen that has never seen hardship in her life that has never seen the outside of the palace of Fidel. And now she's out in the desert, humiliated Thai spit on beaten and when she calls upon Allah subhanaw taala What is she said? But of divinity and DECA? Batum from gentlemen. Oh Allah build for me with you. With you. The first thing she asked was actually for the companionship of Allah subhanaw taala rather than the companionship of fidem She
didn't ask Allah subhanaw taala for another husband. She said, Oh Allah, I don't want Fidel I want you. And I don't want this palace. I want baby tenderfoot agenda. I want a palace and gentlemen, she could have asked Allah Subhana Allah for many things. But what she was doing was the essence of an empty set. The most of the situation is not just is the fog and not just seeking forgiveness from Allah outside the most the situation Oh Allah, I gave this up for you. And so I expect the reward from you. And when it ALLAH SubhanA went to Allah do Allah azza wa jal would show her place in Jana as she was being tortured. And the angel Shadid her just as the angel say the people have a shot
it's in Gemini it gets a lot done sometimes in your head to the shop just as a soul as I said, the angels have their wings over the people in the shaman you might think to yourself, doesn't look like the angels of ALLAH turns out to have their wings over the people have a shot with all the tragedies and lost hundreds Allah give them rustler like that. I mean, that was never the victory of the tragedy that's happening over there. It doesn't look like Allah is giving them shade right? But the state of the angels is different than the same that we imagined. The shape of the angels empowers you on the inside to face whatever struggle you have in front of you. It strengthens your Eman. The
shade of the angels allows you to look at adversity and smile because you know what Allah azza wa jal is giving you in return is better than what's being taken away from you in this dunya. And so she smiles when the angel shaved and she laughs and fin Allen says Look at this crazy woman. She laughs when she smiles and she faces that tragedy, why her expectation is from Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. And Allah does not disappoint the one who seeks from him. Like even in our small day to day affairs, you know, someone faces some form of transgression, I'm beloved myschool, little the Alaba Tana animal, one time in Iraq and SubhanAllah. We mentioned them a few weeks ago as well, one
time in Iraq. I'm loving this group over the allotted time who was walking in the marketplace. And someone stole what he stole the bag that he was carrying his goods. So they stole his money, Someone robbed him in the middle of that marketplace, and ran away as part of a lot whenever they did that. Obviously even maneuver with the law and I know is the shift of Kufa is the Chefman at all as a whole. He taught all these people going out. And whenever they know that he was just robbed and he was a small man all the time that I even physically couldn't do much for himself. Everyone in the marketplace petty everyone in the marketplace wanted to kill that man. So they started to look
around they started to search to try to find that that I'm loving us to go into though the loads are there. Immediately. He smiled and he raised his hands to the sky. And he said hola hola in Canada Skeena Oh ALLAH if he is poor for
Paddick level female,
bless him with what he has stolen from me. And he said the words that the prophets like some talks that no believer says, seeking the reward from Allah subhanaw taala except Allah gives him better than that which was taken away. Allah majority female celebrity was not the height of men. Oh Allah reward me for my tragedy. You see what happened to me, Oh Allah, reward me for my tragedy and give me something better than that which was taken away with full confidence, Allah will give me something better. And subhanAllah that attitude with Allah azza wa jal allows you to face any hardship in this world, whether it is that whether it is death of a family member, whether it is a
financial hardship, whether it is transgression, whether it is an issue with your health, when you seek the reward from Allah azza wa jal in the earth, you know, Allah Subhana Allah assures it for you and some how do I shift to Islam and Daniela Eva hula, he said that intellectually, you know, trusting ALLAH SubhanA, Allah to Allah comes before the test. He said, at a level of milk Allah, being pleased and content with what Allah has decreed comes afterwards. The sense of tranquility and contentment that comes inside it comes afterwards that you know what, it's okay. And hamdulillah It's okay. Allah will give me something else. I'm going to be fine. I'm still alive. I still have
this. I still have that. And Hamdulillah that you know, that liver that pleasure will not come with anything except for that level.
It won't come with anything but ima Subhan Allah that level when you're pursuing them, when you're pursuing that even whenever you are guaranteed forgiveness and protection from hellfire unless none of us are guaranteed that protection. You still want more from Allah subhanho wa Taala signed into a new apostle the Allah Tada the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he said Allah Allah allegedly started Oh ALLAH and suicide every time he makes a DUA. Can you imagine the person who has that that under his belt where if I asked Allah for anything he will give it to me it's not just that the province always said Ask me for anything like you did what the customer others suddenly asked me
that's amazing enough you can ask the Prophet slicin for anything
but Subhan Allah Allah titled The Allah Tala handle the prophets, why sometimes ask Allah subhanaw taala to accept his dua there is no greater gift than that. Inside the will the Allah Allah was without a doubt his giraffe was accepted anytime he asked the last panel is Adam for anything. On top of that, he was guaranteed gentleman from an icicle invested in the 10 promise paradise. He was guaranteed Jana from the hijra, he was guaranteed Gemina from the Veterans and budget, he was guaranteed Gemina from Beyonce over the one he was guaranteed Jana, in the last farewell speech of the Prophet's life. He's been guaranteed Janna five times in the seal of the prophets life. And his
is Mr. If you had that already given to you what would you ask Allah for? You know, he could have made the right to Allah Subhana Allah to put them on a private islands with a nice palace and never never be bothered and never have to do anything again. But even after he's guaranteed Jana he fought in every battle with the prophets of Allah, it was sudden, he was the first one to take Islam to China. If you ask where China got the stuff from, by the way, China has 22 million Muslims 22 million Muslims who went there first decided to do a cost of the allowance and animal and he built the first Muslim in China. This is an established authentically in the theater of the mind that
Allah to Allah. He built the first president in China lived a long life. And his draft was so easily answered that the Sahaba feared to upset on top of the allowance at one time when he was organizing the the lines of battle. He accidentally pushed side and he started to cry and he started to ask for forgiveness because he was afraid of the drought of Saturday, the cost of the alarm to give you an idea, one time in an Bustelo there was a man that was cursing I didn't want to be bothered it'll be Allah Who tried and sang he was one of the people that that took the methodology of leaving all fits and he didn't get involved in any of the any of the battles any of the tribulations of the Muslims,
he took a backseat. But this man was cursing ideal the hola and and Santos becoming upset and enraged and he went to him and he said, If you don't stop cursing I need I'm going to curse you.
And the man kept going and Saturday will be Allah and no major against him. And a beast came from outside and stomped the man to death and left.
That was the drop of seven.
Now, why didn't you ask Allah for more in this world? Not only that, can you imagine if this man gets sick? All he has to do is say Oh ALLAH
To me, and he's, he's good. That's all sat in doggy Allah and the last two years of his life, he was actually blonde.
And when he went blind, all of the Sahaba, including his children, they said, Well, that's easy. Just ask ALLAH SubhanA it's out security from your blind.
Right? What do you do? That you can't get more done that you already have done that just ask ALLAH SubhanA to add security? And his kids went on? And they said, Why aren't you making dua to Allah to cure you of your blindness? You know what he said, I said, Well, Allah in need this day and upload with that said, I'm too shy in the sight of Allah subhanaw taala, to ask for them. He said, rather than us when
we said, I'm going to be patient, and I'm going to seek the reward of this tribulation is power. Even then, he wants more than what he already has. He's already guaranteed. But the believer always wants more to believe in always strikes for more the believer when he asks, you know, some how to love the person in this world was so loved by some seven origin or otherwise, that Terbinafine and when the son of Adam was given a value of gold, he doesn't get satisfied with his value of gold, he wants another one. And if he's given two, he wants a third one. If he's given three, he wants a fourth one, and nothing will satisfy him except for dirt in his mouth and have fun with the cup.
You've been destroyed because you always want more of this world, Hector's ultimate macabre until you go to the great. The believer, on the other hand, always wants more Hassanein and whether it is in ease, and if it's walking to the masjid, or if it's in his a lot, or if it's serving people at the time of the flop. Or if it is a tragedy that comes to him either in a minor form or in a major form. It's always looking to Allah subhanaw taala and saying, Oh Allah, reward me for this. We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah to make us amongst those who are patients and those who seek the reward of their patients. We ask Allah Subhana Allah, to grant us live on to grant us pleasure with his
decree and to grant a satisfaction with his ease and with His blessings and sugarcoat and gratitude lung I mean, Akula colorada was stuck logging companies out there must be interested in the whole the whole.
