Amman will topple la Pulu covenants Dida, ustelecom Arma Can we have a look on the Nova con when they your player, either hot or Sudha, who caught the first frozen Alima from a beret. We begin by praising Allah Subhana Allah to Allah and bearing witness that nun has the right to be worshipped or unconditionally obeyed except for him Subhana and we asked him to send his peace and blessings upon his final messenger, Muhammad Salah already he was setting up his family, his companions, and those that follow until the day of judgment. And we ask Allah subhana wa Tada to make us amongst them, Allah, I mean, the brothers and sisters, the topic that I've chosen for today is one that's deeply

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

personal, and is not related to Ramadan, per se. And I'll explain to you why my personal motivation of doing so today in particular is in a moment, but Subhanallah when we speak about, you know, tragedy, and when we speak about losing money, when we speak about losing wealth, when we speak about losing your job, when we speak about marriage, you know, not getting the person that you wanted to marry, or we speak about a health condition that afflicts you. Usually, these types of things are things that, you know, are not easily are not easy to recover from, but rather they're things that are far easier to digest. But Subhanallah there's one thing that strikes us and that is

00:02:46--> 00:03:23

the death of someone that we love losing someone that's important to us losing a child losing a parent, someone that you grew up leaning on and, and you know, many of us in here have experienced what it's like to lose a parent or to lose both parents, someone that you grew up, you know, leaning on depending on someone that mentored you, and that cared for you throughout your entire life that guided you through your difficult moments, and you lost that person that you were leaning on, or your child that was your source of joy that you would come home and you would look at. And your happiness, in essence was derived from the happiness of your child or a brother or a sister or a

00:03:23--> 00:04:01

sibling, someone that you used to be able to talk to when you couldn't talk to anyone else, someone that offered you a sense of emotional comfort that others could not offer you or your spouse, your partner in life. Someone that has faced obstacles with you someone that was supposed to be there with you to see your children grow up and to see everything unfold in life, or your best friend, who you grew up with in school or you met later on in life, who helped you through something difficult in life and who believed in you in times when others did not when others did not believe in you and who saw you through very difficult circumstances in life. The point is, is that you lose people that

00:04:01--> 00:04:39

you love, and losing someone that you love is probably the most difficult tragedy that you can face in this life and they're intimate, they say something very wise here, that if you look at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa salam, you know, he went through many tragedies in life he suffered, you know, poverty, he suffered slander, he suffered from all types of afflictions. But the prophets lie some of them what we refer to in his sila as I'm in prison. The year of grief is not a year that's called the year of grief because of the rejection that he faced lice or because of the oppression that he faced, or because the Prophet slicin was driven to poverty, or even because the

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was sent away from his home or even because the boycott started started on the Prophet sallallahu it was salah, and when I asked him and Benin will call it what we know as the year of grief amateurism is the year that the profit slice lost his wife Khadija the Allah Tada Mmm hmm. And his uncle Abu pilot, and the scholar said there was no

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

grief that was equivalent to that. And when you look at the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam death was a recurring theme in his life. He lost his father before he was even born. So he was born 18 He was born an orphan. He lost his mother at the age of six years old, and had very faint memories of her sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He lost Abdulmutallab his grandfather just a couple of years after that. And so the prophets like Selim, by the time he's eight or nine years old, he's already lost the three most important people in his life. And then the Prophet slice and I'm gross. And then also Allah say salam loses his uncle Hamza, when he loses, Khadija will be allowed to hide

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

his most beloved wife, he loses a co pilot who was his emotional protect his physical protection and who used to comfort the Prophet slice them and see him through many difficult things in life. He lost Hamza, Allah, the Allah, Tala, who was not only his uncle, but was also his brother. And he was his brother through breastfeeding and he was also the same age as the prophets license so they grew up together and also lost my son didn't just lose him. He lost him in a very brutal way. The Prophet slice and um, saw him mutilated. And one of the reasons why we don't know as much about Hamza, as we do is because Hamza will be a longtime friend who died early on in the Madani period, he dies, you

00:06:20--> 00:06:59

know, in the Battle of origin. So, those last years of Islam, which are the glory years, we don't see much about Hamza, all of the adults that I know because he's already passed away. He buried six out of his seven children. He lost another wife, Xena, Ben's Hoceima are the Allahu taala. And I mean, the prophets like Selim has lost and lost and lost and lost people that are beloved to him. And so there is no person that has a greater moral authority to tell other people to be patient with their loss, whether it's the loss of a parent, the loss of a sibling, the loss of a child, whatever it may be, then the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, because he's experienced death in each

00:06:59--> 00:07:37

form, he's experienced the death of his closest friend, salAllahu alayhi wasallam, he's experienced the death of his cousin's job football, the law Tada and when others he's experienced at all, there isn't a single phase of his life, except that the Prophet slicin experienced the death of somebody that he loved. It surrounded him at all times. And so when you read an incident like the prophets lie Selim walking to the graveyard and seeing a woman that standing there as her husband or someone beloved to her, passed away, and she's she's weeping and groaning and wailing and the Prophet slice that I'm tells her to have somebody to be patient, what does it mean and to seek the reward from

00:07:37--> 00:08:18

Allah subhanaw taala no one has a greater authority or credibility to do so than the messenger SallAllahu it was so no one. And when she says that you wouldn't understand what I'm going through, not knowing that it's the profit slice out of them. She's not recognizing who not only the greatness of the messenger slice on the statue, but the fact that that yes, the prophets lie Selim has been through, he's lost more than any of us have also lost why Salem has lost more than a person who lives in a warzone and also lost lice and I'm with that is able to control himself to contain himself and to express only gratitude to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah with his wife Khadija all the

00:08:18--> 00:08:51

Allow time and he remembered her very fondly as we all know, the prophet slice and I'm not a single day went by except that he mentioned her except that he sent gifts to her friends, except that the prophets of Allah it was salam ethna I liked her he praised her and he remembered her and anytime the Prophet slicin was in Mecca, he would go to her June he would go to the place where for the gentle the Allah and has buried and visited her daily I think his thought was set up. And when Fatima took place when the conquest of Mecca took place, and they asked the Prophet slicin them Where do you want to be? Where do you want your tent to be pitched? He said next to the grave of

00:08:51--> 00:09:30

Khadija will be Allah Tada Anna in June, when he sees the necklace of the double the Allah that belongs now to their daughter, Zaina little the Allah on. The prophets lie some is brought to tears, but also la sigh some never once expresses any form of ingratitude with Allah Subhana Allah for taking Khadija the Allah Tada and away from him at a very delicate time of all parliament. The prophets like Selim, loved him and cared for him and what the Prophet slicin I wanted more than anything else for those that he loved was not just goodness in this world but the salvation of the Hereafter. And he had to live through that moments of Allah it was set on a begging his uncle who

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

raised him who cared for him in his young age in his in his old age to just say like if I had Lulla Kadima, give me one word that I can argue on your behalf on the day of judgment, and his uncle refuses and he sees that some Allah Azza wa sallam, he asks ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada for permission as an ambassador, the Allah Tala and who narrates to visit the grave of his mother. And Allah Subhana Allah to Allah gives him that permission. He asked Allah Subhana Allah to Allah for permission to seek further

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

Goodness for her. And Allah subhanho wa Taala did not give him that permission. He goes and he cries at her grave sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam does not say any word of ingratitude when his son, Abdullah passes, when his son Ibrahim passes away his last son, and also lost my son, I miss carrying him and the Sahaba are treating this, like like, like the tragedy of the century, the Sahaba are the ones that are saying that the kazoo that the eclipse is taking place, because of the death of his son, the Prophet, slice them doesn't hold his son and say to the Sahaba, all of this is happening because of him. If you think about it, if the messenger

00:10:42--> 00:11:18

slice Allah, Maha Abdullah, if the prophets lie, Selim was fabricating this message. And if he was falsely claiming to be a messenger, he would look for any one of these signs to claim that authority. So when an eclipse takes place on you know, on the same day that his son passes away, he would be the one to tell the people that this is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah showing the grief of the heavens and the earth for the son of his messenger slice, but instead the Prophet slice and it makes it a point to clarify to the Sahaba that know, a Shem so well, our eye atonement AR Tila, but the sun in the moon are two signs of the signs of Allah subhanaw taala they don't Eclipse or move

00:11:18--> 00:12:04

for anyone, except for Allah subhanho to Allah and the messenger sly Salam holds his son and as he's crying, and the amount of Noah for the Allah and who looks at him and says what NTR rasool Allah, you as well a messenger of Allah. We weren't expecting you to cry. And what is the profit slice? And I'm saying, he says that the heart grieves. The heart grieves, we feel sadness. It's only natural. Allah put Rama Allah put mercy in our hearts. There's a great function to the love that we have for one another in this world. The heart grieves and the I shed tears, but at the same time, Lana Kulu Elana yoga Allah, we don't speak except that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw

00:12:05--> 00:12:45

taala even in those moments as he's holding his dead child, salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he still manages to bring himself to those words that I'm not going to say except what pleases Allah subhanho wa Taala not that I'm not going to complain. Not that you know, this is not leave me alone right now and I'm going to practice silence learner Kulu Elana, yodel dilla. Rather, I will only say that which is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa taala. That's a man sallallahu alayhi wa salam, who with every test that was thrown at him, or they his salatu salam, he rose above it, and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was able to show us a perfect example. But we get back to that concept

00:12:45--> 00:13:20

of really, how do we deal with that, and this is, again, the most unpleasant thing that we can deal with in life. Everything seems to freeze at that moment, you start to remember all the regrets that you have with how you treated that person. And unfortunately, for many of us, though, you know, the time that we try to reconcile is when someone is one we're attending that person's janazah we try to make up with a person at that time, we fail to apologize to the people that we've wronged be they our parents, be they our our siblings or friends, whatever they may be, until we're at their janazah then we're bawling in tears and trying to apologize to them And subhanAllah you know, when we have

00:13:20--> 00:14:05

that personality, we don't learn from the first death. We just keep on doing that. We continue to develop grudges, we continue to harm people. We continue to boycott people that that at one point we loved and loved us only to regret it at the time of the janazah ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada sends us these reminders over and over and over again. And you know, it's been a very difficult month here in Dallas in the greater DFW community for our communities, Paola, sister, Hadid. May Allah have mercy on her 22 year old girl that dies in a car accident. And then just a week ago, Sister Amina, who was Subhanallah, a young girl as well, walking on you know, walking on the day of Friday for her

00:14:05--> 00:14:42

graduation, celebrating with her parents taking pictures and passing away dying on the same day. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah can send it to any one of us a lot as urgent, could send it to us at any moment. And for many of us, we would rather that it came to us than it comes to those that we love. Now one of the signs of the Day of Judgment, the profit slice and I'm sad is that a person walks by the great and he sees a person he sees the grave of another person he says, late any consumer can I wish that I was in his place, not out of love for that person but out of misery in this life because their heart does not contain Allah subhanho wa Taala so everything could be good

00:14:42--> 00:15:00

in life, but it's missing a lot. So when they walk to the graveyard, they would say late to any consumer can I wish I was in his place, not out of desire to meet Allah subhanaw taala or not out of desire to not have to see people pass away, but rather out of the the wish to be able to escape the misery of a godly

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

This life,

00:15:02--> 00:15:37

a life that you chose to live without Allah subhanaw taala. But when it's people that you love many times you would wish that it came to you before it came to them. But you don't decree that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah does. And one of the greatest gifts that Allah subhanaw taala can give to a person and this is how Allah subhanaw taala switches things around for us. This is how I genuinely am remote. And this is why the affair of the believer is strange that the believer can find a way to optimism in any situation. If Allah subhanho wa Taala chooses to test you with that

00:15:39--> 00:16:24

and you manage to rise to that occasion with patients. Allah will give you Jen I'm not speaking on behalf of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks on behalf of himself as the prophets like some says this hadith kotse it's in Kitab recaulk and Sahil Buhari, that was allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says here kulula Jota Allah, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says, And when Allah says rather than call Allah Allah said this means that this is consistent. This wasn't a one time declaration. Rather this is something that Allah repeats to the angels over and over and over again. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says in this hadith Kotze gnarly Abdul macmini nd Jezza there is

00:16:24--> 00:17:06

no cert there is no believer, no servant of Mine, no believer in me that will that will miss out on the reward either come up to Sophie who may earn a dunya if I take back his Sophie, someone that he loves you know Sophie is not necessarily your child that's not necessarily your parent because Sophie is someone that you chose because sometimes our love Subhan Allah Allah Do you know them agenda that we find ourselves like conscripted soldiers we fall in love with certain people, our hearts attached to certain people. So Allah Subhana Allah uses the word selfie like he says in the Quran in Allah has Topher Adam or nor, Allah chose Adam and Noah was tough he took and stuff he took

00:17:06--> 00:17:48

Allah says to Musar Islam I chose you and the prophets lie, some is the fluffy of Allah, he's the Chosen One of Allah subhanaw taala. So there is no reward for the believer. Who Allah Subhana Allah to Allah takes away someone that he loves. It's a broad matter for Tessa, and he showed patience. In Little John, except for Paradise. There is no reward for that person that goes through that difficulty in life, whether it's a parent, a sibling, a child, or even a friend, or even the messenger SallAllahu. It was Hello. And he shows that patients with ft sub ft sub is a solver diraja.

00:17:49--> 00:18:17

That Assad means to actually see compensation at the side means to show patients with the intention to gain the reward of what has afflicted. It's a very, very, very beautiful quality to have. And no matter who Allah takes from you and it's almost inevitable that Allah will take someone from us, if you're able to rise as the prophets licenses and the fundamental ruler with the first strike. If you're able to rise to that occasion and say that hamdulillah in Allah

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

to Allah we belong to Allah we return All praises be to Allah. I'm not going to say except that which is pleasing to Allah subhanaw taala. You just earned yourself Jana, you earned yourself paradise. And you know, when you look at at the messenger sly Salam, he says, particularly about the most difficult one, which is to lose a child because it's almost the norm, that a person will bury their parents because their parents are older than them. For most people they will live to see their parents pass away. It's the norm in life. But if you lose a child, but also loss like some says in an authentic hadith uttered, thrown, amended record, do you know who childless people are who barren

00:18:57--> 00:19:38

people are people that can't have children? So they said to the Prophet slice, Allah de la you know, you will not do not the one who can't have children. The Prophet slice M says no, he says our QUB the one who is truly childless Allah the lamb you heard them, the one who does not put forth look at the language of the Hadith. Lamb you condemn mean? What are the he che, the one who did not send forth any of his children before he passed away? And we NWSL Allah, Allah Afia We ask Allah for protection, that's not something we ask Allah for. That's, you know, the greatest dua that we should be making, you know, after our own salvation is the salvation and protection of our children. But if

00:19:38--> 00:20:00

Allah tested a person with something like that, as difficult as that and they rose to that occasion, then they've attained a certain level of paradise that cannot be attained in any you know, with anything else to that degree. And in fact, you know, Amata bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah to Allah, he said after he lost his favorite son of the mill

00:20:01--> 00:20:33

Did Malik was the most beloved child of armor? He was the one that used to wake him up for a pm or late he was the one that used to remind him when he'd be going to sleep that you know, you still have a lot of people that you need to take care of. We haven't solved the case of so and so canning or even the adult hydrometer bin Abdulaziz Rahim Allah to Allah says he used to enjoin me with good he used to make me do good. When a lot of bin Abdulaziz lost him and he buried him he said beautiful words. He said Alhamdulillah he loved the Jalla caffine is Ernie Willamina journey Finis Anak,

00:20:34--> 00:21:17

sir, All praises be to Allah Who placed you in my scale and did not place me in your skill Subhan Allah, it's a decree of Allah subhanaw taala as difficult as it is to face, Allah chose to put you in my scale of good deeds as opposed to me and your scale of good deeds, which is the norm. And that's why you know, subhanAllah the scholars, they're intimate they saved the knees on a faulty man about the allowance and Fatima Zahra is the greatest musician of all time. It's the greatest scale of all time, because she's the only child of the children of Rasul Allah slice and I'm who has the Prophet, slice lemon, her MISA and she has the job of the law on her skill. And she has all six of

00:21:17--> 00:21:54

her siblings in her skill and will be allowed to add on. When a law tests you with something like that and you're able to rise, that person is placed in your skill, your mother, your father, your brothers, your sisters, your children, your friends, have a soul loss, Allah Allah Who it he was known as the Sahaba they used to say the prophets lie some told the Companions if you lose someone that you love, the way that you deal with that tragedy with kodomo sabak If he melty Rasulullah his bison, remember your tragedy and the death of the messenger sliceable. Remember that the Prophet slicin was taken away from me. And that's a far greater tragedy your sular was not seeing the

00:21:54--> 00:22:39

prophets of Allah it was salam with not being with the Prophets lie Selim with missing the prophets lie Salah that's also something to be placed in your scale. And that's something that Allah Subhana Allah Allah chooses, And subhanAllah I spent Friday, and this is why I chose to give this cookbook with the parents of our three winners in North Carolina, Leah, you'll sit on Roseanne, may Allah subhanaw taala have mercy on them. I spent Friday in Raleigh, North Carolina with those parents, and Subhanallah, to see the amount of dignity to see the amount of honor to see the amount of patience in these four people was truly inspiring. I don't know how they do it. I don't know how they bring

00:22:39--> 00:23:14

themselves to be able to move forward with this. And may Allah subhanaw taala have mercy on their children, they surely were excellent children and SubhanAllah. When you lose a child that's blessing and a child that was as good to you as they were to their parents clearly as good as they were to their parents. It's very difficult. But Subhanallah every single time I mean, they they go through the incidence, they go through all of the moments that they spent, especially the father and mother of your son, Roseanne, those were their only two daughters, they go through those moments and with such dignity, and with such confidence that ALLAH SubhanA which Allah has prepared something for

00:23:14--> 00:23:57

them, that Allah subhanaw taala has taken care of them. We as Muslims believe that death is nothing more than the discontinuation of the soul and the body being joint period. Nothing more than that, when you have that Yaqeen that certainty with, with Allah subhanaw taala that your loved ones that pass away from you that depart from you. You are only temporarily entrusting them to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, and you will be leaving this temporary life soon as well. And you will be joined with the righteous as Allah Subhana Allah to Allah says yes, stablish you don't wanna be Latina, La Miel Haku men commonly him that the martyrs and the righteous they're waiting, they're, they're

00:23:57--> 00:24:38

enjoy, they're actually talking to each other in that realm of elbows are waiting for the other believers waiting for the other believing souls. And as the messenger slice I'm sending the authentic hadith and Muslim animate that whenever a believing soul passes from this world, that the believing souls in our bodies in that realm, you have to be assured different they come with greater joy. Man, a hottie can be locked up with a greater joy they receive you with a greater joy than one of you would receive your long lost relatives, someone that you haven't seen in years, they receive you with joy. And that was what kept us capital Sahaba going below the Allahu unknown he was leaving

00:24:38--> 00:25:00

this world. His wife saw him sick in a shop and beloved all the alongside and he was he was passing away his wife looked at him dying and she said Why has not? What a what a terrible day this is. What a horrible day. This is. What grief I'm in right now to lose my husband, beloved, and beloved the Allahu Taala

00:25:00--> 00:25:39

and who is no average man may not is not only the leaven of the profit slice I'm he's someone who spent some you know spent so much time with the profit slice I'm the man who the profit slice I'm heard his footsteps and agenda. He's someone with a great character and his wife sees him and he's barely able to speak and she's saying whackers not and beloved of the Allah Tada and who says, don't say that say ye for hath say it's a day of joy. She said, why? He said, had an alcohol ahead ba Muhammad and Messiah. So because I'm about to go meet, my beloved ones, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and his companions. They knew that it was there, or if not the low tide and when he was

00:25:39--> 00:25:59

passing away, and he saw a dream before he passed away of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Abu Bakr and Omar Radi Allahu Taala and Earth man was fasting on that day. And also last night Selim says to him to Pharaoh and and Aladdin you will have a far with us. You're gonna break your fast with us.

00:26:01--> 00:26:45

Think about that concept that it could be today tonight that we join Rasul allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the believers in that next realm. The only thing the only thing that can keep us going in this life is that hope. The only thing that can help a person recover and though you will never fully recover, I lost my mother vamos a la Liga almost eight years ago now. And any of you who have lost your parents, you never recover, you lose someone that you never really fully recover but at least that hope that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah can rejoin you with those people and that when you do good deeds on their behalf that those good deeds will reach them and as they've been ambassador,

00:26:45--> 00:27:25

they allow to unholy marriage and this is an authentic hadith from ibn Abdullah bottle. Alberni also considered authentic it's a very it's not a very well known Hadith where also la spice and I'm says Hadith so here, Nam and Muslim Yeah, Motorola Chhabria. He he can refer who for dunya there is no Muslim who goes and visits one of his brothers, one of the graves of his brothers. I'm not talking about the you know, the innovations that take place at the great but to do the Sunnah of the Prophet slicin And will you sell the more I like a Salam or Aleikum, Dr. Coleman Momineen when you say Salam to the to the believers in the graveyard, except that that person responds to their Salam, Allah

00:27:25--> 00:28:03

subhanho wa Taala allows them to respond to the Sunnah. Subhan Allah now with the prophets like Selim, the beauty of the messenger sai Salah is that the prophets lie some said what he said that give your Salam upon me wherever you may be to baloney it will reach me so when you say sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when you send Salam on the messenger sai Salam here in Dallas, that is the same as sending it in Medina because Allah subhanaw taala has appointed an angel to deliver that Salanter so you go and you visit your brother, your sister, someone that you love, and you simply say a Salam or Aleikum, Dr. Coleman, meaning you say that the folder of the prophets lie some of them when he would

00:28:03--> 00:28:46

enter into the graveyard. You do good deeds on their behalf and you know that you're sending them gifts. Because the prophets lie Selim says that as a person is lying in their grave as the believer is lying in their grave, they see a beautiful person that comes and that person comes so beautiful, that you know that they're coming with good news. You know that if Allah has chosen this creation to come to you and your grave that this creation is coming to you with good news. And a person with the believer would look at that person and say how that would lie to ILA behind. This is a face that's not coming except to deliver some form of good news. Who are you man and Annamma Luca salah I am

We will, you know oppose the son of the Prophet slice them and leaving their bodies out for a long time. Going through certain procedures and processes that aren't really necessary and that aren't from the Sunnah of the messenger slice of them, we will decorate their grave spend 1000s of dollars decorating their grave and contrary to what the prophets like Selim himself is in and what he did for those that he loved and what he advised us to do.
