and those that fall on his blessed path until the day of judgment and we ask Allah to make us amongst them, Allah him. I mean, your brothers and sisters so often when we talk about the concept of drought, and we talk about a drought a prayer, I can't tell you how many times someone walks up and says, Can you give me the drought for this situation, we're often looking for the perfect formula, the perfect euro, the perfect supplication to fit our situation. And sometimes we look for the longer do us, the ones that have such poetry to them, because they're able to encapsulate what we are feeling in such a poetic way. And we know that it comes from our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa
salam, so we attach ourselves to it. So we love these long poetic drives. And I want to write it down and make sure that you send it to me and make sure that you give me this and make sure that you give me that. And there are two things that are missed in the process. One of them is the value of raw data, the value of your art and your own language, supplication in your own language, where you express those feelings where Allah does not need you to rhyme, or to sound poetic or to sound beautiful or even to speak Arabic when you make your DUA, Allah Subhana Allah loves to hear your voice and hear its sincerity. And that is the most important ingredients. However, no doubt, there's
blessings in the droughts from the Sunnah of the Prophet slice. The second part of that the things that we say so regularly that we lose value for those things, and we don't realize that they are in fact expressions of drought. So for example, a set of multicam is a Duran piece beyond to you what happened to Allah He well baraka to me, the
prayers of Allah be upon you, it's your app. And so it doesn't really make sense when someone says Salam to you, but they intend everything that is in opposition to that peace, right? So you say Salaam and anger, and you go on harming and backbiting and hurting the person that you say salam to no Salam has a contract. It's a prayer and a contract between two brothers and two sisters, that there is peace, that you're not going to be harmed from my end. And that I will pray for your peace and for your mercy and for blessings in your life. It's a contract that we may betray, sometimes, when we act in opposition to it. The other one most common one is Hamdulillah. To say Alhamdulillah,
and to say it in a way that betrays the Alhamdulillah How are you know,
hamdulillah is an expression of thanks to Allah, it's a dua It's a prayer Alhamdulillah all praises and thanks are due to Allah. But someone says and hamdulillah in a way that's complaining even in the way that they say it, or they said hamdulillah and then they attach on to it three sentences of complaints. What's the point of your Alhamdulillah? If you're going to betray it in the way that you say it and immediately with what you say after it's and hamdulillah as a DUA? It's a prayer it's an invocation. It's a powerful one. How are you? How are things going? How are you feeling? How are you coping, Al hamdu lillah no matter what the hammer belongs to Allah subhanaw taala the praise and
thanks and Grace belongs to Allah subhanho wa taala. Now, what we come to today, builds on what we've been speaking about over the last few weeks, but I want to preface it with the following. The Hadith of the prophets lie some that we all know where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said I jumped on the Emerald movement in Umrah who Kula who hate that. How wonderful is the affair of the believer. Everything in his regard is higher. It's good. If something bad happens to him in Asaba, to Salah Shakira if I can, if I don't know. If he is touched by something that is good, he is grateful and that is better for him. We all know how to express gratitude we said hamdulillah and
that is better for him when I saw that Wilbur Ross Saba Rafa Khanna hate on Apple. And if he is harmed, or if she is harmed by something that is painful by something that causes them grief, then they are patients and that is better for them. It's how we express the patience where we actually find most of the duress.
Let me be clear here. The amount of times that I've been asked for do ask for patients versus do as of thinks is highly disproportionate. Because the reality is we usually look for words when we're in pain. When it comes to gratitude, yeah. hamdulillah hamdulillah
But when it comes to pain and drag, how do I get this debt away from me? How do I get this pain away? How do I make the situation better? That's when people start looking for the long drives, right?
And that's where we find these blessings from the sooner that you add that I'm going to talk about today has never been given to a profit before you and I want to say first and foremost what that means. When the prophets lie Selim was there on the night of Illustra on Mirage, on the night of the ascent, he was told up should be no rain or tea Tahoma lamb yoke Tahoma and be on Kubla can be received the glad tidings of two lights that have been given to you that were never given to a prophet before you and the Prophet slicin was told 30 hats on Kitab waha team Surah Al Baqarah, the opening of the book Al Fatiha and the last two verses of Al Baqarah are two gifts that were given to
you that we're not given to any prophet that came before you. Now when you read Quran when you when you're when you get into Salah
how often do you lose appreciation for the fact he had because it's, you say it all the time, you get right past it. And now let me think about the surah that I'm going to read. But in fact, it is a gift from Allah subhanaw taala there's a reason why and it's for your own good that you recite it every single record in your prayer and your prayer is invalid without it is greater than what will come after it's so read it over and over and over again and ponder over it learn its meanings, and immerse yourself in a thought to have because it's profound. It's beautiful. And there's a reason why those last two verses of Surah Baqarah are two verses that the prophets I'm taught us we should
never leave before we sleep every night when we go to sleep, we should read those last two verses of Surah Baqarah every single night. Don't miss them. Just like you don't miss aids and kursi don't miss those last two verses of sorts of Bukhara so it indicates that Allah has given something special to the Prophet sly someone by extension us. It's a gift that Allah gives to this ummah, that he favors us with that allows us to gain greater blessing from him. So the DUA that I will speak about today, sorry, the new job a while the Allahu Taala and who says, Now already I had done my order to attack the hill onma while earlier I had that orange Lea Jacoba Alayhis Salam, and I'm
Tessmer EDA colony here SFR Allah Yusuf, he said the words that I'm about to share with you. We're not given to any OMA before you. They are a gift from Allah not given to any Ummah before you and if they were given to anyone before you it would have been given to Yakov, it has Salam Jacob when he lost his son, Yusuf Ali instead of Joseph. And what does he say in the Quran? Oh my grief overuse of Yasser Allah Yusuf. So sorry, Roberto, the Allahu Anhu is saying if Allah was going to gift these words to anyone before you surely it would have been Yaqoob it has Salam but the expression you know if I say ready, write it down. It's going to be many lines you have to memorize this is Carter
Stovall Messiah the morning and evening remembrance no you know what the words are? In La he when they heard you
say entire build up for in La La he were in LA Hey Roger your own.
You know the thing that you write when you hear someone died, you text it. You say it sort of as a matter of habit. In the law he was in a in a Roger your own verily to Allah we belong unto Allah we return. It's only mentioned once in the Quran. And that is where Allah Subhana Allah says, well that * is sabe deen and give glad tidings to the patients remember we said well server and patients is at the first strike. Alladhina either saw a battle mostly by those who won they are struck by any tragedy Kalu in Manila, he were in LA he Raji rune, they respond with what is known as instead of Jarrah, the homecoming dua to Allah we belong unto Allah we return Hola, Iike Alikum Salah to in the
lobby him Marana. What are you doing as a result of that? When they say that when they're struck with something harmful? When they respond within that Allah He would need a rod your own. Allah descends his prayers, his forgiveness, His mercy upon those people and they will remain amongst those who are guided when do you hope to not lose in tragedy perspective you hope to not lose your way right that the tragedy stops you in your in your return to Allah subhana wa Tada stops you and your Toba stops you in your consistency with worship stops you and your happiness stops you in your journey. So Allah says when you say in Allah when I read your own, he descends upon you his prayers,
his forgiveness, His mercy, and he keeps you upon guidance continue along your way. So let's talk about this dua in Allah Allah he were in LA Herradura rune that we often just throw out there because we know we're supposed to respond that way to tragedy, specifically death you don't really hear in that Ilahi window
Technology are only being used outside of the context of death but what makes this such a gift
that Allah chose it for this OMA and Allah Subhana Allah Allah did not give it to anyone before the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as a word and that's why you don't find it. You find him too many times the praise of Allah many times in the words of the prophets, but you don't find instead of Jack. What is this gift that Allah Subhana Allah Allah has given to us first and foremost I want you to pay attention to the times that you probably just saw it as the beginning of your
the story of Onselen model the Allahu Taala and her when her husband Abu Salah model the Allahu Anhu died and when Abu selama died on Salam I thought I have nothing at this point I will send him I was an incredible human being and he indeed he was a great Sahabi I've got nothing to look forward to in life anymore and the profit slice I'm taught her to say that you're out along the journey female sleep It was lovely how you're on minha Oh ALLAH compensate me for my tragedy and give me better than that which was taken away from me you know what that had that you're actually is the dura is in gnarly la he were in LA he Raji rune Allah majority female sleep It was lovely Hi Ramona. It starts
off with in Allahu in LA Roger on to Allah we belong unto Allah we return Oh ALLAH compensate me for what you have for my tragedy and give me better than what was taken from me. The drought of the Prophet size someone Ibrahim his son died we all know that there are nine attachments that the eyes shut tears the heart breaks when and according to the law and we only say that which is pleasing to Allah but you know in every single narration the prophets lie some started off with in Anila he were in a in a Raja rune. The way I want you to think about it, it's like the best manner is to the surah of the Quran. Bismillah R Rahman Rahim. Sometimes you say it's so quick and you forget that it's
actually there for a reason.
In that Allah when they lay Raji rune is in every one of these narrations and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, whoever is struck by something was stellar Rojak and they respond with in Allah he were in that era he Raji rune verily to Allah we belong and verily to Allah, we return he said that ALLAH SubhanA hota Allah will surely compensate them for their grief and Allah will give them better than that which was taken away from them. The Hadith of the Prophet sly Saddam where he said, either matter whether the Abdi Powell Allahu Ramallah Iike TeeHee. When a person loses their child, Allah says to the angels, but not to one other Abdi did you take the child of My servants?
And they say Neram? They say, yes. Allah says and this is Allah showing you he knows how you feel about some thermometer for the heat. You took the apple of his eye you took the most beloved thing in the world to them, yes, or Luna. For your kulula Nether cada Abdi Allah says and what did my servants say? And Allah knows what his servants said. And they say how many datca was startled Jarrah.
They said at hamdulillah and inna Lillahi wa Alayhi Raji rune verily to Allah we belong unto Allah, we return via code Allah, Allah says ignore the Abdi beta and Phil Jana was a mobile beta haven't built for my servants a house and Paradise and call it the house of priests.
In Allah when a rod your own is not just the first sentence. It's the core of it. It's the most profound thing you can say when a tragedy hits you. And it's something that we could take for granted and Subhanallah there's even a narration for later but uh, ya know him holla one time he saw a man and he saw this man and he said, Come, etc. They come in a scene, how many years have passed and he How old are you? He says to two and a Senate. He said I'm 60 years old. But Oh Mr. Olympia and McAfee tolerated it Allah insha Allah do you realize that you're in that age now? Where you're getting close to Allah, right? Wake up beat be certain now like make sure that you take advantage of
every moment, because Allah has given you 60 years to know Him and to direct yourself towards him. That's a gift Allah in Allah when na Raji Arun, he responded that way. And Felipe said

I just said it because I was taught that way. We were taught that when disaster hits say in that Allah, he went to Nigeria and he said, It means exactly what I'm telling you. He lay here on your own, you're on your way back to Allah.
You're on your way back to Allah you're getting older. So fix yourself, correct your ways now because you are traveling towards Allah Subhana Allah to Allah. So what is the meaning of this word of this powerful dua? Number one, it is a statement of fact number two, it is a
replication of hope, combined. In one, a statement of fact in Allah Allah, we belong to Allah. That's a statement of fact. It's acknowledging and affirming what is reality whether you acknowledge it or affirm it or not. If you deny it, it doesn't make it any less true. In Allah. We belong to Allah.

I know that I am in your hands. I know that I have no power over myself. So it's a statement of fact and a statement of hope. Yeah, Allah, I wouldn't want to be anyone else's. I wouldn't want to belong to anyone else. I wouldn't want anyone else to control my affairs. I wouldn't want anyone else to be my master. It's just you Oh Allah. And I'm happy with
that. So it's an affirmation of fact, a statement of hope in a theology rune to you we return you're returning to Allah whether you like it or not, whether you acknowledge it or not right.
But delay he Raji rune is a statement of hope. Yeah, Allah you will not let me down when I meet you. So long as I did what I was commanded. Yeah, Allah did not let me be amongst the disappointment. Yeah, Allah do not let me be amongst the deprived. Ya Allah let the pain that I feel now that I responded to with praise be granted paradise on the Day of Judgment. All of these are embedded in ELA here, oh god, I'm coming back to you. Oh, Allah. This just reminded me that I'm on my way back to you as well. You took something away from me in this world, to remind me that this entire world is eventually going to be taken away from me. One layer of the veil between you and I has been
pulled back until the entire layer which is life as a whole pulled back, bizarro can Yoma Hadith with death. One layer has been pulled one curtain has been pulled back, the entire thing is eventually going to be pulled and I'm going to be standing in front of you, oh Allah. And I have hope in that moment. Oh Allah. I have hope in that moment. Oh Allah, that I stand before you. So it's an affirmation of fact, and a supplication of hope. The last thing that I want to say to your brothers and sisters is a story from the Prophets lie. So I'm in the Sierra, where sometimes the way that the Sahaba used to use these words is completely different from the way that we use these
words. Okay. Subhan Allah Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah in general, right, like culture dictate sometimes the usage of these words, one of the most powerful uses of usages of these words, is in the story of the slander of the shell of the Allahu Tada and, and it wasn't her that use the word. How did the entire slander of actual the Allahu anha happen? They were on their way back from bending will Stalock shadow the Allahu anha went to take a nap under a tree, she overslept. The caravan left thinking that she was in her place, and she was not. And so the prophets lie some in the caravan went ahead, and it showed the allow and has slept through it. All right, this is how it
all starts a man by the name of soft one and then what happened? Well, the Allahu taala. And so if one goes out, he's the one that would check after everyone left. And he sees out each other the Allahu Anhu under the tree.
And as he sees her, his first expression is in la la, he went to LA Rajaram he actually says it.
Why does he say it? Because he knows. There is no way that those people that gossip and make fitna are not going to turn this into something it's not as soon as I wake her up, and even if I act in the most noble way, which I will so one literally sits this camel down, goes back lets her you know, get on the camel and then takes her into Medina doesn't even talk to her to maintain that nobility and that barrier just to keep away Colombian nurse to keep away the words of the people and the gossip of the people. But he knew as soon as this is happening, he's a smart man. So in that Allah when Allah
I know what comes next. I know what comes next Subhan Allah and what came exactly what he feared. As soon as he walked into Medina, Abdullah and Obon. Soto sees them and says, Hmm, now study much Minho. She was not saved from him, nor was he saved from her. I guarantee something happened there. Then the whole fitna happens, right. Allah subhana huzzah Allah clear
of the show the Allahu anha as we know, but what did Allah subhanaw taala also do for someone because of the way that he responded he did exactly what he was supposed to do right? He did nothing wrong he did everything right. And we always talk about the story of our mother inshallah the Allah and have been cleared and indeed 10 yards for I saw the Allahu anha amazing where Allah soprano clears her name. But Allah Subhana Allah Allah says in verse 26, hula you can move Barbra own Annamaya Kowloon, those two, they are free, from what was said about them Lahoma FIRA tune what is concurring,
they have been granted forgiveness and a wonderful sustenance. You know, the baraka, the blessing that comes in the life of surfline after that incident, because he responded the way he was supposed to respond as well. So one is in this equation too. He's just the one that fades into the background. But Allah says he was forgiven, also cleared from the heavens, what is going ketene and Allah descended upon Him all sorts of blessings and Imam and according to the Rahim Allah says in conclusion of this, the brothers and sisters that also lost my son taught us to say in Allah when they Raji rune, even when the lamp goes out,
you know, sometimes the power goes out. What's your first response? The prophets lie sometimes was in a lucky winner and they had Algeria that's how we are to function with this beautiful word. So let's bring back the life of this phrase, the way that we bring back the life of Alhamdulillah we ask Allah subhanaw taala to always find us in a place of praise and in a place of responding and returning to him.
