00:00:16--> 00:00:18

Alhamdulillah wa

00:00:20--> 00:00:20


00:00:27--> 00:00:29

Maria de la

ilaha illallah wa

00:00:39--> 00:00:41

Ala Wai shadow

00:00:44--> 00:00:47

Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:00:53--> 00:00:58

Mohammed in Salalah Juan alayhi wa sallam was

00:01:23--> 00:01:23

and then

00:01:26--> 00:01:28

call the

00:01:31--> 00:01:34

fader be as loud hi satin

00:01:36--> 00:01:37


00:01:40--> 00:01:41

Carlo has

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

been Tamil

00:01:45--> 00:01:47

ominous Ebony Malik

00:01:48--> 00:01:52

Allahu Akbar, an agenda for

00:01:59--> 00:02:06

Muslim may Allah have mercy on his soul collected in his howdy from the narration of Allah.

00:02:10--> 00:02:14

He said that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, I entered.

00:02:16--> 00:02:24

And when I entered, I heard some noise. Somebody moving in there, I said, Who is this? They said this has

00:02:26--> 00:02:27

been to minhang

00:02:31--> 00:02:37

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam sees a woman in general.

00:02:39--> 00:02:42

What's the story of that woman? Subhana Allah.

00:02:45--> 00:02:48

When we read in the history of Islam,

00:02:49--> 00:03:00

we find out that this woman is the embodiment of patience, and acceptance of the color of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

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

She was married

00:03:04--> 00:03:07

to somebody by the name of Miley.

00:03:10--> 00:03:28

And when Islam came, she was from Al Ansari, she accepted Islam. And once she accepted Islam, she invited her own hospital to Islam. And she said to him, how can you worship a God that somebody

00:03:29--> 00:03:31

made out of wounds?

00:03:33--> 00:03:35

Don't you have common sense?

00:03:36--> 00:04:01

And the man said to her Listen, Mohamed Salah, came with a religion that prohibits alcohol and I cannot stop drinking. And he refused. And he asked me to join him and go to Belarusian, and to emigrate, and she refused. And he went there and he passed away. He passed away.

00:04:02--> 00:04:06

So many men proposed to her.

00:04:07--> 00:04:09

And she used to refuse them

00:04:10--> 00:04:10


00:04:13--> 00:04:16

he proposed to her and he was gonna listen.

00:04:17--> 00:04:18

And she said to him,

00:04:23--> 00:04:23


00:04:25--> 00:04:30

She said, you cannot be refused, but you're a Muslim.

00:04:34--> 00:04:35

This is my daughter.

00:04:38--> 00:04:38


00:04:41--> 00:04:45

he came to her and he said, can I marry you? She said yes.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

Then that was the best doubt in the history of Islam, because it was the conversion.

00:05:01--> 00:05:03

You know, into Islam.

00:05:05--> 00:05:09

And so parent Allah, Allah subhanho, wa Taala, bless them with a child.

00:05:11--> 00:05:12

And once they have that child,

00:05:15--> 00:05:17

and he told her take care of the child.

00:05:20--> 00:05:21


00:05:23--> 00:05:24

the child passed away,

00:05:25--> 00:05:26

he was very young.

00:05:35--> 00:05:36


00:05:38--> 00:05:56

do not tell my husband when he comes back about the death of our child, I'll be the one who will inform him. And when he came back from traveling, look at the woman, she lost her child. She beautified herself, she just

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

and she cooked food for her husband. And she washed the money of the kids. And she put him in bed.

00:06:09--> 00:06:10

He asked.

00:06:20--> 00:06:35

She said to him, he's in bed, and he's sleeping. He will never move again. That's again, it's a metaphor. She doesn't want to tell him he died.

00:06:37--> 00:06:45

Then the man said to themselves, as long as he's asleep, I'm not gonna wake him up. And he ate dinner with her

00:06:48--> 00:06:49

so much.

00:06:50--> 00:06:51

And he slept with her.

00:06:53--> 00:06:58

And then in the morning, of course, he would love to see the child.

00:07:01--> 00:07:02

Then before he went to sleep,

00:07:04--> 00:07:05

she told him

00:07:07--> 00:07:07


00:07:20--> 00:07:28

If we bought something from our neighbors, and they came back to claim it, how would you react to that?

00:07:34--> 00:07:36

It's there's parlance

00:07:43--> 00:07:43


00:07:56--> 00:07:57

our return.

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

I have my son

00:08:02--> 00:08:05

and I would be sleeping with you are enjoying food.

00:08:10--> 00:08:13

I will go and I will complain to the profits.

00:08:15--> 00:08:21

And he went to the profits. And he told him the story. And the Prophet says Selim asked him

00:08:28--> 00:08:30

Did he sleep with your wife last night?

00:08:31--> 00:08:33

And I said yes.

00:08:37--> 00:08:50

subhanho wa Taala bless that night for you both insha Allah and his wife became pregnant. And within nine months when the prophets of Salaam was Joan was going out.

00:08:51--> 00:08:52


00:08:53--> 00:08:54

his wife

00:08:55--> 00:08:59

felt the pain of the labor of delivery.

00:09:19--> 00:09:21

Allah subhana wa tada

00:09:23--> 00:09:28

all of whom memorize the Book of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:29--> 00:09:34

Brothers and sisters. Why did I start my football with this story?

00:09:38--> 00:09:40

When when

00:09:42--> 00:09:43

the machines

00:09:45--> 00:09:46

are masiva

00:09:47--> 00:09:59

look at all of us today. The reason I started this story, because all of us here and the speaker is not an exception. We're all going through hardships. If you

00:10:00--> 00:10:33

Student you might be struggling between work and study. How would you find the freelancers to stay away from, to pay for your tuition, if you're a married couple, you're going for a lot. If you have a wife, or a husband who's sick, if you have marital problems, if you miss somebody, if you lost a loved one, this is dunia. And we all go through a lot. But the question is, how can we? How can we take

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

and understand the meaning of

00:10:38--> 00:10:45

when it hits you when you go through a hardship? To whom should you go

00:10:46--> 00:10:46


00:10:49--> 00:10:50

a lemon?

00:10:59--> 00:11:01

Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:11:03--> 00:11:05

so number 15, number 15.

00:11:07--> 00:11:24

You need to go run rush to Allah Why? Because whatever you need, yes, it's only when Allah because Allah subhana wa tada mention in the ledger. So number 15, number 21.

00:11:34--> 00:11:37

Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the surah

00:11:42--> 00:11:45

whatever you might be asking for Allah

00:11:47--> 00:11:50

inexhaustible treasures have everything

00:11:55--> 00:11:56

you need maybe

00:12:10--> 00:12:12

if you want something from

00:12:15--> 00:12:19

because today, when we have a problem, we resort

00:12:23--> 00:12:24

to the end of the list.

00:12:26--> 00:12:28

Allah according to say a Muslim

00:12:38--> 00:12:47

goes into a hardship and it's so difficult. No one can help him. He used to rush to salon, what salon?

00:12:51--> 00:12:55

You go to talk to him and you go to suit you.

00:12:59--> 00:13:32

Have no one except you. So it's only it's only through Allah, that we can have all our problems solved. How can we know about Allah? We can only know about Allah through the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala through the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Can I ask you to move forward but I don't have to repeat this because there are lots of brothers. And now you're stopping by flow of information. Can you please move? That's the command by Allah everybody. Everybody moves please.

00:13:35--> 00:13:37

Sisters also.

00:13:38--> 00:13:59

So Allah subhana wa tada told us, the manual, the manual for human being is the book of Allah, through which you can fix any problem in your life. Because Allah subhanho wa Taala described the poor at the very beginning of the first sort of

00:14:13--> 00:14:22

guidance, if you want to go through this life, and achieve success in this life and the life to come, it's only

00:14:26--> 00:14:46

and this is the only way and this is the only way and this is why let me take you into a short journey in the remaining minutes of this football, you know, to answer some main questions. When you go through difficulties, you start questioning yourself. Why is this happening to me? I'm a Muslim,

00:14:48--> 00:14:53

Muslims outside, they have a mind what's wrong

00:14:54--> 00:14:59

is in your understanding. You need to go back to the Quran because you think

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

If Allah

00:15:02--> 00:15:51

gives you a lot in this dunya is pleased with you. And if Allah doesn't give you what you want, then there is something wrong with you know corrects your misconceptions by studying the Quran. Let's understand the following question, what is the meaning of life? How many lives Shall we live? gives? Does it mean that he's pleased or takes away from you? Doesn't mean Ally's displeased with you. Let's answer these questions quickly. How does a lie test me in this life? And why does a lot just me? And how should I take the test from Allah subhanho wa Taala Let's start by asking the first question, what is the meaning of life? And how many lives Shall we live? In the Quran? Always when

00:15:51--> 00:15:56

you read you will notice that Allah subhana wa tada is talking about two lives

00:15:58--> 00:16:14

and this worldly life and in the Hereafter, but Allah subhanho wa Taala explained the meaning of this dunya in certain Howdy, so number 57 number 20. And he started by a C'mon,

00:16:25--> 00:16:46

you need to learn this, you need to go and study this. understand the meaning of this dunya it's nothing but play and entertainment was enough ornament those children, those cars, those houses, you're gonna leave them are they gonna leave you at a point of time?

00:16:50--> 00:16:56

You most things that Allah has given you the the job the degree

00:17:03--> 00:17:13

and you try to increase in wealth and children but Allah subhanaw taala but this is the life look at the analogy Allah subhanaw taala is giving us

00:17:18--> 00:17:26

it's like a lot of rain that comes down and brings crops and then the farmers would like to see these crops

00:17:32--> 00:17:46

Subhanallah after you see these crops, after you have your children Mashallah growing up, after you have lots of money, what happens to this dunya look at those plants, they start withering, and then they become wood.

00:17:53--> 00:18:00

So what remains is what's gonna happen on the Day of Judgment. What are you going? Where are you securing your place?

00:18:01--> 00:18:06

Save us Oh, does it look carefully the ending of the woman

00:18:09--> 00:18:21

who wrote this word the Alliance is nothing but delusion. And look at this ayah it explains this very clearly in the Koran. How can we imagine dunya

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

Allah subhana wa tada in Surah number 23

00:18:28--> 00:18:35

i a 112 and 113 Allah subhana wa tada will ask us on the Day of Judgment.

00:18:40--> 00:18:48

me when Allah subhanaw taala would asked us on the Day of Judgment, how long have you lived in

00:18:51--> 00:18:52

your mind?

00:18:55--> 00:18:56

Your answer?

00:19:09--> 00:19:12


00:19:14--> 00:19:18

you're at yours in this dunya will look like a day on the Day of Judgment

00:19:21--> 00:19:23

for one day,

00:19:24--> 00:19:32

not sure we have so much stuff what today we feel you Today we cannot give. Now. It could be less than a day.

00:19:33--> 00:19:35

You know, we have no idea.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

They were writing down everything.

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

That's this word of the life holding on to this sort of your life. So what is the real life? The real life? Allah subhana wa tada answer this question in sorted line kaboom. So number 29 and number 64, Allah subhanho wa Taala talks about the two lives

00:20:00--> 00:20:00

loss of

00:20:10--> 00:20:14

life is nothing but entertainment and playing

00:20:24--> 00:20:26

Andrea life is the hereafter.

00:20:31--> 00:20:34

If they really know, you need to know this,

00:20:36--> 00:20:55

you will see your life as a clip of a few seconds. And you will say I only lived for one day or even less. So which one deserves to be worked for? Imagine, on the day of judgment. Not now we're going to make that statement in software.

00:21:00--> 00:21:01


00:21:21--> 00:21:28

We're gonna say on the Day of Judgment, I wish I have provided something for my life.

00:21:29--> 00:22:03

You're standing in front of a lion. But this is too much regret. You can say now, because you still have a chance. But at that moment, you're saying Yeah, like, it's regret, when regret is of no value. So say now, why does a lot this doesn't this dunya so what's the meaning of life? In this dunya Allah explained to us many times in the Quran, you read it in certain capsule number 18. Number seven, Allah subhanaw taala said, in

00:22:13--> 00:22:50

all what you see in this dunya cars, houses, spouses, children, whatever, it's all it's gonna go, it's gonna leave you in the dunya. Or you're gonna leave it behind, and you're gonna go to the grave. We have a body with us today, we're gonna pray on that. Remember that? All of us are leaving. So Allah subhanho wa Taala said, it's a test, who's gonna pass the test? Are you from accelerometer? Who will be the best when it comes to the quality of their deeds, the good deeds, same meaning in Surah, number 76. Started in

00:22:51--> 00:22:52


00:22:53--> 00:22:54


00:22:57--> 00:23:31

Italy, we created man out of a mixed subpanel Ah, you know, like it's a piece of blood, if you see it. And this is the mixture of the egg and the sperm. It's disgusting. This is our beginning. This is our beginning. Allah said why he summed it up in one word, inevitably, this life is a test. This life is not eternal. You have to pass the test. You have to take the test. But you need to understand the meaning of the test. And how can you pass the test? This is why Allah subhanaw taala said, again,

00:23:33--> 00:23:37

the same meaning, and so number 67. And number two,

00:23:41--> 00:23:44

you're not existing, then he brought you to life.

00:23:48--> 00:23:57

How does this happen? Let's go to certain bacala I have 155 Allah Subhana Allah confirm by saying,

00:24:00--> 00:24:08

indeed, we will test you, you need to understand this study the book of Allah gives you the answer to everything that's happening in your life.

00:24:14--> 00:24:14

He said,

00:24:17--> 00:24:19

just some fear, because

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

if a lot of us with fear, we will be all on the graves now. But unless there's

00:24:28--> 00:24:35

some fear, and some anger. So these are the forms of the test, go and study them when a person

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

was fraud. So Allah Subhana Allah says,

00:24:43--> 00:24:55

Allah subhanaw taala will test you and your health and your loved ones and your jobs. So this is life, whatever the life claims, man, it's already his and this is why

00:24:57--> 00:24:57

after this

00:25:00--> 00:25:06

Bury me, when the test comes when you're sick when a loved one of your

00:25:09--> 00:25:15

loved ones, when you lose your job, what do you notice anything in this dunya remember, in

00:25:18--> 00:25:19

a law center

00:25:23--> 00:25:29

What is the meaning of patient for the patient people, those who insane when the calamity hits them right away.

00:25:44--> 00:25:54

Many a time we say that, but it's only in observers. We never mean we never feel it when you say it means that some

00:25:55--> 00:26:08

has one mother, that Father that Allah has taken is his. He's the one who gave him or her to you, and he has the right to take them back. So you should say and mean it.

00:26:10--> 00:26:32

And everything that was given to me belong to Allah, it does not belong to me. So when Allah takes it back, I should be content with the color of Allah and I say we're in your own, whatever is left me or anything else that Allah will live with me now. We're returning, we're going back to Allah subhana wa Taala was then the result.

00:26:35--> 00:26:37

Allah will praise You.

00:26:38--> 00:26:41

Allah will show you with His mercy. Where will he go home with?

00:26:42--> 00:26:46

What's the purpose of your life? Do you want guidance? Who did

00:26:47--> 00:26:54

you go to the Quran? You will get the guidance and you will accept the cutter of Allah subhanho wa Taala akufo

00:26:59--> 00:27:00


00:27:01--> 00:27:05

wa Salatu was Salam ala evadne Latina stuffer,

00:27:06--> 00:27:07

y shadow Allah.

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

Why should one know Mohammed another Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?

00:27:20--> 00:27:23

Allah or sukumar Fc ritacco law has origin

00:27:27--> 00:27:27


00:27:29--> 00:27:33

Lima de la sojourn. Some of us would ask

00:27:34--> 00:27:41

after we know that this life is a test and we know the forms of the test. But they still ask why it doesn't like us.

00:27:44--> 00:27:53

Allah subhanho wa Taala answer the question the Quran many times and because of the tightness of time I can share all of them, but I'll share two of them with you.

00:27:55--> 00:28:11

Allah subhanho wa Taala and slaughter room. So number 38, number 41. Last part Allah said, the hidden facade of El Barrio as you can see, you know, corruption has been widespread in land and see

00:28:12--> 00:28:22

why the mecca submit ins Allah explains. It's not as they follow your mother nature, Allah said because of what we do.

00:28:24--> 00:28:42

Because of our sins, yes. And Allah right after that said, you did go home Baba, lady, Amira, Allah subhana wa tada is making us the results, the consequences of what we do, why?

00:28:45--> 00:28:47

It's a wake up call

00:28:49--> 00:28:55

from you, takes your job. He's the one who gave it to you. Would you say?

00:28:56--> 00:29:34

Yes, I'm sorry for what I've been doing. I'm sorry for my mistakes. I'm sorry that I am transgressing my limits with you. I'll come back to you. Many times, some of us when we lose a loved one, we go back to Allah. When we go into a car accident, then we lose. We are in the hospital, then we remember Allah but when we have everything, you know what we say? I'm very smart. I made all of this. I don't need your Salah because I have everything explained this. And so number 96 was law. Number 14.

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

When you have everything you feel like I don't need a law. No, you cannot live. You cannot live without Allah subhanaw taala you cannot breathe without Allah subhanaw taala you cannot sleep and wake up from sleep without Allah subhanho wa Taala you gotta go to work unless Allah gives you the hell. So we need to understand what a lot is us. It's a wake up call.

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Wake up, stop sinning. Come back to me.

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

Number two,

00:30:06--> 00:30:09

the Prophet sallallahu alayhi salam told us in the lie that

00:30:11--> 00:30:15

if tala Allahu Akbar, it's a sign that Allah Subhana.

00:30:18--> 00:31:03

Allah loves you. He will keep testing you. Isn't this amazing? So just feel happy when you go through a test. There was a woman, you know who is married. And after 40 days, she told her husband, let's go. Let's go to the ma'am. I want to take I want to get a divorce. And he asked her, why do you want to have a divorce? Did I do anything wrong? She said, No. Am I not fulfilling my duties as a husband? She said, No, you're okay. But I need a divorce.
