Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Islam may Allah subhanaw taala bless you all, and gradually better I mean, still speaking to you from Makkah and today's episode from our madonn series, moments with Allah subhanho wa Taala is inspired by the salah tarawih this evening Subhanallah it was most eloquently led by Chef Mr. Harrell moderately happy the hula and chef. Yes are those that we have with Allah may Allah subhanaw taala preserve them both in his obedience, I mean, and they decided from Surah Yusuf and the sutras thereafter but particularly from Surah Yusuf, which you're gonna hear, have you ever heard law recited from he emotionally read

00:00:42--> 00:00:52

the portions related to Jacoba Salem and his heightened difficulty no doubt, he was always in difficulty when use of disappeared and then he spent decades

00:00:53--> 00:01:28

you know, dealing with his difficulties and then Subhanallah such a long time later, decades later, he loses another son because obviously use have kept Binyomin back. And the oldest son also decided to stay back as well. Because Binyamin was only allowed to go with the brothers even though this was decades later, based on the promise that they made that they would all return back unless something impossible happened now, here we see Subhanallah Jacoba at least I'm truly having a moment with Allah subhanho wa Taala What was that moment he never, ever, ever

00:01:29--> 00:02:05

lost hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala and yes, he was a human being. And yes, he felt what he felt. And when he had the need to express, he complained to Allah subhanho wa Taala and he says this to his kids, that I'm complaining to Allah, and Brothers and Sisters in Islam, not complaining about Allah complaining to Allah subhanho wa Taala never ever do we see him saying, but I'm making to Allah and Allah is not answering my to iron, Allah is not giving me and I don't know how long I was asked for and when am I going to be lifted from this test? And, you know, I'm asking Allah but I don't know what plan Allah has for me. He never ever spoke like this Brothers and Sisters in Islam,

00:02:06--> 00:02:19

right? Decades later, but one son, or two sons, three sons, now away from him. And he's telling his sons go and look for use of and his brother.

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

You know, Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we might say this is like,

00:02:25--> 00:03:11

you know, someone just asking for the sake of asking, but by Allah, this was asking with hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala this wasn't a broken record. They're just saying, Go and look for them, go look for them. This is asking with absolute hope that he trusted the plan of ALLAH SubhanA who he had, and he trusted the whatever Allah subhanho wa Taala does, he does good. And thus he says, I only afford the human nature that I possess the complaints that I have to Allah subhanho wa Taala never about Allah. And he proved that inaction because he never ever fell into despair. He never ever lost hope in a lie. In fact, he tells his sons decades later, go and look for my for my son's

00:03:11--> 00:03:53

for your brothers, and never ever lose hope in Allah and Allah's mercy, who is saying that he could have decades later he's telling you sons never lose hope in Allah's Mercy, the only ones who lose hope it ALLAH SubhanA who were to ever lose hope in Allah assisting them in the Mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala and those who are truly in a loss, Han Allah subhanaw taala and the Imam rightfully became emotional at this point, because obviously, when you read the story, feeling its timeline you recognize that this is decades later, four or five decades later, Subhan Allah and the man Subhanallah being a true carrier of the legacy which Allah revealed upon him the legacy of Naboo

00:03:54--> 00:04:17

he is carrying it with flying colors, and really being a role model and an inspiration for us that whatever we going through Brothers and Sisters in Islam, we have to always recognize that if Allah takes us to it, Allah will take us through it. That is the lesson from Mecca. In today's episode of our series, moments of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah, I love you all for the sake of Allah and until next time, salaam Allah hiya Alikum
