Episode Notes

This is the 3rd episode of the “Callers to Allah” series. Allah tells us in the Qur’an that He will put our words to test by putting obstacles in our paths. When doing volunteer work, there will be tests in the form of other people and their criticisms. We must not let them dishearten us and we should remember that we are working for the pleasure of Allah.

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah My dear brothers and sisters at Quran Weekly as salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. This is my third message to the young Muslim activist. In my previous presentation, I spoke to you about the importance of focusing on yourself as much as focusing on other people in activism. Now, my message to you is, what should you expect from the people? You know, Allah subhanho wa Taala says Alif Lam mean, has even asked you to acquire Hello, Amanda home leftenant Alif Lam mean? Do people really think that they're going to be left to say we believe and they're not gonna, they're not going to be tested. We'll look at for 10 and Latina men

00:01:02--> 00:01:43

problem, we have tried and tested those who were before them for the alamanda Allahu La Nina Sadako, Ala Moana, Caribbean, and Allah subhanho wa Taala shall know those who are truthful, and those who are not, you know, when it comes to being in activism and working so hard for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala make a lot of good works of Dawa, whether again, in an MSA setting, or youth program at the masjid, or anywhere else that you do. One of the hardest things really to that most of these young activists face is being under appreciated, it's a huge trial for them. In that trial is basically you're doing so much work. And then somehow as you volunteer your time, the night that

00:01:43--> 00:02:21

you spend without even having an hour to go to sleep, everything you're running on coffee, and an energy drink, and so on. And then finally, you have one of those angry people come and lash out at you perhaps even offend you by their statements and words and so on. It's really depressing sometimes to face these things. And Subhanallah that's part of our tax that we pay for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. And when we do things, we only do it for Allah zildjian. That's one of your trials. Whenever you go into the field of activism, I don't want you to expect people to be you know, so excited about what you do or happy what you do. No, sometimes you will have people who will

00:02:21--> 00:02:55

come to you and they will hug you and they will cry on your shoulder saying that calaca thank you very much for putting this together. But other times you have people saying, you know what, this is nothing. You guys have wasted my time and people they will just be complaining about pity thing that makes you really frustrated that they're not really focusing on the main message. It's part of the trials and the tests that we go through while we volunteering for good work like this. So what I'm telling you what I'm saying here for you, I want you to make sure that when you do things you do the things for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala expect this to be as part of the trials and the tests

00:02:55--> 00:03:36

you're going to have to go through one things Pamela interesting. I showed you a lot of Anna, whenever she used to give and she used to to do a lot of work so they allowed her Anna for the sake of Allah zildjian she always remind herself what's called the light of Allah in Amano Tomoko Jayla lanita Mukunda Amma Shakira that when we feed you, we only feed you for the sake of Allah azza wa jal. We expect no thank you. And no reward from you. You know, if you expect any appreciation from people, for the for the work that you do for the sake of Allah, the origin, the thing, the irony here is that they will always disappoint you. Remember, if you expect reward from people, they will

00:03:36--> 00:04:20

always disappoint you. And if you expect the word from Allah subhanho wa Taala you will always be happy and excited about what you do. Allah as a realtor, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam first, come on sobre la as women also have patience, perseverance, patience, just like those are Russell Russell messengers with strong determinations, they've been sent before you and I'm giving you this message as well. I want you to be patient. I want you to practice subber persevere and patience against all these trials that you go through or face on the road of activism. Again, remember, you reward us with Allah subhanho wa Taala trials and the field of dharma. It's something you cannot avoid. It's

00:04:20--> 00:04:30

inevitable. Prepare yourself with so much patience be in the light of Baraka to Allah you will enjoy the work you will always be happy was Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
