So are you coming back into labor Carter, welcome back to prison the pious.

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

I want you to imagine the situation. And some of you may have actually been in this scenario, and you probably would relate it to the story of unit studies that I'm Jonah.

00:00:16--> 00:00:54

But imagine being in a boat or being on a ship, and the waves start to crash, and the wind starts to blow hard, and you think that you're about to drown, you think that you're about to fall out of that ship and fall out of that boat. Some of you may have actually encountered that the ocean is a terrifying thing. And that's a very difficult moment to be in. And it's such a powerful analogy that a las panatela draws from it. And of course, in the story of unicity, slam the story of Jonah, we learn about those moments as well and what it feels like to be in those moments as well. This is a situation that Kamala narrates took place with the great scholar Ibrahim Ibn Rahim Allah Rahim, no,

00:00:54--> 00:01:07

Adam was a sage was a scholar was an incredible human being, and who's whose righteousness was really recognized by everyone around him. So he's on the ship. And as he's on the ship,

00:01:08--> 00:01:35

So he rose from his sleep as it became severe and the ship started to rock right and left and was about to flip and the people felt like they were all about to die. And they said, Yeah, but it's half Oh, father of his house. his oldest son was named as Hawk. Abraham, Isaac. Yeah. How?

00:01:36--> 00:02:16

What can you call upon Allah with now to save us from the situation? And he has one sentence that is just so powerful. He rose, and he and he he raised his hands to the sky. And he said, Yeah, hi, you. Yeah, by you. Oh, ever living Oh, ever sustaining. But our eterna quadratic, you have shown us your power for any now I flick. So show us your pardon. You have shown us your power up at eight and our quadratic for arena Affleck. You've shown us your power. So show us your pardon. The strength of those words, as soon as he made that.

00:02:17--> 00:02:53

Everything calmed down, the wind Calm down, the wave stopped hitting them and the ship continued to sell. And in fact, he actually just laid back down and went right back to sleep. That's a connection that the man had with a loss and Hannah Montana. But I don't just want to focus on that. Like, I don't want the moral of this particular lesson to just be that. Brahim Radha Mohan. Allah was pretty amazing. But I want you to think about a time where you're really witnessing the power of Allah subhana wa Tada. And you're seeing just how completely and utterly dependent we are upon him. And realize he didn't say you've shown us your punishment. He said, You've shown us your power. This is

00:02:53--> 00:03:31

a manifestation of your power and that's his husband alone. That's as good expectation of Allah subhana wa Tada. So you've shown us your power. So show us your pardon. Okay, show us your pardon and pardon is beyond mercy and forgiveness. It's, it's when we are when we are left alone when we are left safe. So you've shown us your power. So show us your pardon. Oh Allah. The next time you find yourself in a very desperate situation or you might be in that desperation right now, where you find yourself completely dependent upon Allah subhanaw taala call upon the last panel to say Oh Allah, I am a witness to your power, this is your power. Now, I want you to show us your mercy and
