things upon him, the prophets and messengers that came before him, his family and companions that served alongside him and those that follow in his blessing path until the Day of Judgment, we ask Allah to make us amongst them Allah from I mean, the brothers and sisters as things are getting back to normal now for so many. I want us to reflect a little bit further on the discussion that we had last week in the wake of what so many of us encountered of an uncomfortable deprivation, a deprivation of power, a deprivation of water, and uncomfortable deprivation, that ushered in some unexpected blessings for us to think about how we come together as neighbors, how we come together

00:00:41 --> 00:01:29

as communities, so that we could take care of each other and take care of those who were not taken care of prior to what had happened. And obviously, the jokes about the Dallas weather, you know, one week it's snow, and it's, you know, one degree the next week, it's 75 degrees, and things have gotten back to normal. And of course, we know that there are still many people in our own city that still don't have water, especially again, the refugees and some of the low income complexes that still don't have access to water even at this point. And I wanted us to think about how we take this lesson with us and we propel ourselves forward from now towards Ramadan. Ramadan is only a month and

00:01:29 --> 00:02:10

a half away Allahumma Boliviana Ramadan May Allah subhana wa Tada allow us to witness it, and to be forgiven through it and to be made more grateful and patient through it. And to get closer to Allah subhana wa Tada through it Allah Amin and I was looking at a few of these narrations and one of them is a very beautiful one where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam expresses how one of the greatest blessings we have in our lives is the way that we go through the cycle in which temporary deprivation of a blessing can lead to permanent changes in our lives to where we appreciate those blessings more. And this is narration that I will nama about the Allahu Taala and who narrates from

00:02:10 --> 00:02:55

the prophets of Allah Allah settlements in a Timothy. Remember silty considers the authentic and while some scholars say the chain is weak, they say the meaning is correct, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Allah Allah Europe the LEA Jalili but ha America that my Lord offered me to presented me the entire valley of Mecca to be turned into gold. Now we know as we spoke about, on Amara, the Allahu Anhu saw the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and the way that he lives it made him cry. The prophets lie Selim continued to maintain poverty, even after he was at the height of his power, complete poverty and the Sahaba felt like they wanted to do more for the

00:02:55 --> 00:03:38

Prophet sallallahu. It was ALLAH. Here. We also have of course, where Allah presented the Prophet sallallaahu Salam an opportunity at the end of his life to live much longer. But the prophets lie Selim chose a fecal Allah He chose the highest companionship. And in this situation, the prophets lice and I'm saying, not only did you feel like you want to present me more, you want to build the palace and you feel like I should eat better and live better. My lord presented me Mecca, the entire valley of Mecca, in the hub in gold. But I responded and I said, Laya Rob, what I can espero Yo, man, what a Giuliana. But I said to my Lord, No, my lord, I would rather that I am nursed one day

00:03:38 --> 00:04:22

and hungry another day. I'm fed one day, and I am hungry another day. So either you're too levoir to eat a cow at the Capitol care. We're either Shabir to Chicago, Touka, Mohamad Touka. I said to my Lord, that way, when I am hungry, I will humble myself to you. And I'll remember you as a hungry man. And when I am nourished, I will be grateful to you and increase my praise of you. And so it's healthy for me spiritually. And it's good for us to go through that cycle, where sometimes we have easy access to that blessings and sometimes, we don't have such easy access to that blessing. And of course, this is one of the blessings of Ramadan as I remember Roger Mahima, Allah to Allah

00:04:22 --> 00:05:00

mentioned, he said that some of the sellers were asked and nobody threw him out if he said some of the some of the pious predecessors were asked why was fasting, legislated? And they responded and they said, Leah, do people have any thought majeure, so that the person who is wealthy the person who easily has access to food will taste hunger will taste hunger? So that's the first thing they'll experience what it's like to be hungry, and the second part of this fella answer there, and they won't forget the hungry. And so it's twofold. On one hand, you want

00:05:00 --> 00:05:36

Don't forget the blessing next time you have it. And the second benefit is that you won't forget those who still don't have the blessing. Okay, again, the first one is that you won't forget the blessing because you've tasted what it was like to be away from it. How good were your faucets this week? How did it feel to have access to clean water? What was it like when your power came back on? What was it like when your water came back on and for those who still don't have it may have lost contact facilitated for you Allahumma Amin and facilitated for all of those that don't have access to clean water wherever they are. But what did it feel like to have all of that like OOF

00:05:36 --> 00:05:56

Hamdulillah. This is amazing, right? So you take advantage of that blessing. And you take advantage of the moment that you are deprived from it to appreciate it more. That's the first thing you won't forget the blessing next time. The second thing is that you won't forget those who don't have the blessing next time.

00:05:57 --> 00:06:36

And that's a profound experience. Two of those things are both of those things are deeply tied to our Taqwa of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah our consciousness of ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada and that's the ultimate reason for the legislation of Ramadan cootie BareNaked mostly um can I put you right under the name and probably commonality upon so you become more conscious of Allah. And in order to become more conscious of Allah, you become more conscious of the blessings of Allah upon you. So it directs you back to Allah subhana Hutan and you become more conscious of those who don't have those blessings so readily available to them, and so you're activated towards them. And that also brings

00:06:36 --> 00:07:17

you back to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, Allah, Allah contest Quran because those are acts of gratitude that bring you back to Allah subhanho wa Taala And subhanAllah this is true for the material things and for the things that aren't as easily identifiable. So for example, Allah azza wa jal says, When I tell him will be habla, hegemony and whether to follow Rocco, whether the Coronavirus Matala here and they can come to Allah for bein Apollo become for us, Baton binaire Mati Juana, Allah reminds the Companions, Allah reminds the people remember before Islam you were at each other's throats, you hated each other, you were enemies, and it was by the blessing of Allah

00:07:17 --> 00:07:55

subhanho wa Taala that you became brothers. Don't forget that blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon you so that when you start to feel that the shaytaan is once again, driving those wedges between you as brothers and sisters, you go back with Kuru and airman's Allah, here they come. Allah says, Remember, go back and actually reflect on those days and remember, what did it feel like? It felt like a good idea to be a little bit more aggressive. It felt like a good idea to increase the conflict, I've got to do this. But Allah says, Remember how much that time period actually stunk. You did not like that time period, you hated that you hated being at each other's throat, the

00:07:55 --> 00:08:36

discomfort of having that enmity. Remember the blessing of Allah subhanaw taala upon you, when he brought you back together, he brought you together, be heavily law with the Quran. So insha Allah to Allah as things do resume back to normal, but in the nahi to Allah, and they start to bring us back to where some of the social distancing, hopefully within it, Tana will start to see you know, relaxing of some of those restrictions start to see some of it coming back. Let's remember that blessing of Allah subhanho wa taala. For the things that are easily identifiable like our food and our drink, and for the other things that are not as easily identifiable, but are also just as

00:08:36 --> 00:09:13

important, like our relationships with one another, and the things that we do to stay close to one another, where Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only one who descends that through his Allah subhanho wa Taala through His mercy, may Allah Subhana Allah keep our hearts connected to him. Keep our hearts connected to each other. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make us amongst those that are grateful to him and respond with that gratitude with added prayers and with added praise. And may Allah Subhana Allah to Allah make us amongst those that are grateful to him, and that we responds by working acts of gratitude towards those that don't have the same access to those blessings that we

00:09:13 --> 00:09:22

so often take for advance that we so often take for granted. Lama Amin a political rehab or stuff Lalibela commonly cited Muslim investor flow in a Hurrah for Rahim.
