Yakubu Ali of praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala alone, we praise Him and we seek his assistance and guidance and we seek refuge in Allah from the evil of ourselves and the adverse consequences of our deeds. We testify that who serve Allah guides, men can misguide and whomsoever He Miss guides, the men can guide and we request praises and blessings upon the final messenger, Muhammad Ali Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, I bear witness that there's no one worthy of worship besides one Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam is His Messenger. I do I do his brothers and sisters in Islam, Salaam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh made the Peace
and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah be upon you all. Welcome to another installment of moments with the messenger and his companions sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
a Jew Marine, and today inshallah, we want to take a lesson from the moments of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with one of his companions, Abdullah Ibn abass, Ravi Allahu Allahu Allah, his cousin, and the son of his uncle, Abbess of your loved one. And in particular, it was a wonderful lesson because I believe in our bus was a young boy. And this teaches us how the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to nurture his DOMA, and he would nurture the children, and he sallallahu alayhi wa sallam speaks to this young boy. And he says to him, that I would like to teach you a few lessons, share with you some words. And he says to him, that if you look after the laws of
Allah subhanho, wa Taala, that Allah subhanho wa Taala will look after you. And if you look after the laws of Allah subhanho wa Taala, then you will find a lot of pain who Allah always with you. And then he says that if you have to ask someone for something, then make sure you ask Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if you sought assistance, or if you seek assistance in something, then make sure you seek that assistance from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And then he says to this young boy, or at the time he was young, that you should know that if the whole world came together, if all of creation came together, to benefit you in some way, they will never ever be able to do so except if Allah subhanho
wa Taala permits that benefit to reach you. And if the entire creation came together to harm you in some way, they will never ever be able to do so. Except if Allah subhanho wa Taala has written for that harm to reach you. Then the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he says at the end of this review, it will move on to flutter serve, that depends have been lifted, and the ink is dry. So Pamela, there's so many lessons here, brothers and sisters in Islam. And I choose this lesson for this moment at the middle of Ramadan, given the different
messages going around and different forecasting is being presented in terms of what the future holds, given this unprecedented crisis of Corona and its global impact, especially in terms of global economy, and jobs, and so on and so forth. I mean, I was just speaking to someone earlier, and he's into media, and with this, or live broadcasting of media and with all the sporting events now on hold, you know, an impact has taken place in terms of his profession, and many different people mentioned to me the impact that they have felt because of Corona, given their area of expertise and their profession and what's happened with their job. And right now, there is
government funding not in all countries, but in some countries coming in. And we don't know how long this government funding is going to continue for right. So a lot of people feel anxious a lot of people feel nervous and a lot of brothers and sisters in Islam people are writing in and asking, you know, what can we do to protect ourselves? Some people have said to Pamela that they have family members that have experienced mental health issues because of the stress of the current situation and brothers and sisters in Islam. What like, the best thing we can do is hold on to our email. That's the best thing we can do is hold on to our email and hold on to the lessons of the Quran and
the Sunnah from the Sunnah lesson.
like this that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was teaching young, even our best.
Lead that lesson has reached us today. And from the Quran, for example, for example, a verse in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala, in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says what is summer it is Coco mama to do, that the affairs of your sustenance is controlled in the skies, it's controlled in the heavens, that is where it's controlled, right? What is promised to you will come to you what is written for you will come to you, what happens on earth will not affect what has been decided in the heavens. Right? Our sustenance and matters of it has been decided in the heavens, what happens on earth will not affect this. So we have to hold on to these ads, and also narrations like this in
which we are being taught that the best way for us to earn is for us to get closer to the Quran and the Sunnah to do what Allah told us to do, and to leave for Allah to do what Allah has to do.
Once one of our pious predecessors was visited by someone, and that person was complaining about the expenses of life, and you know, how the cost of living is increasing the cost of bread, he was saying it's getting more expensive. So this person said, I don't know what you complaining about. I know Yeah. And it's upon me to do
what he commanded me to do.
And it's for Allah subhanho wa Taala, to do what Allah promised he will do. That's what I know. So I'm going about my weight, I do what I can and I put my trust in Allah and I know what I meant to eat, I will eat and if I'm not meant to eat it, I won't eat it. So Pamela, this is a man, we have to hold on to the sources of the Quran and the Sunnah always, and allow it to guide us will lie. When we look at this ayah that I've shared with you. And this narration of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam in which he's teaching even our best of the level, he's basically telling him to have taught to put his trust in Allah, the period of Corona has given us an opportunity to worship Allah
subhanho wa Taala. In unprecedented ways, as well, brothers and sisters in Islam, we can never ever say, Well,
people have unique circumstances and everyone takes things on in different ways. But in terms of the global
application of the Oracle, in our lifetime, perhaps this is the peak of it. This is the peak of it in terms of us, really needing to hold on to this concept of Oracle and understand what Oracle is, and really develop our relationship with this important act of worship of the heart where we worship Allah subhanho wa Taala, with our hearts through the process of the work. I don't think on a global scale, it's been at this level, especially in our lifetime, right? We have to hold on to it, that we do what we can do, it might mean that we need to learn new skills, we do that and that will be from the silver linings of Corona, we will say during coronas panela. I learned I learned how to teach
English as a second language. This is not something I thought about. Because of Corona, for example, I learned about this web application. And so I couldn't I was able to do it for example, right? It might need us to do this that is for us to do. But in terms of what we meant to eat, we shouldn't worry about that the bills we have to pay, we shouldn't worry about that if we doing what we need what we meant to eat will come the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam teaches even at best that no one can benefit you unless Allah wills and no one can harm you unless Allah wills and everything has been written. And in other generations we are taught 50,000 years before Allah created the heavens
and the earth. If this is the reality brothers and sisters in Islam, what we're going through now, this is the reality. If not, if it is the reality it is the reality. We know brothers and sisters in Islam barakallahu feeco, that our risk and what we're going through right now is, is rooted on the low hanging fruit, the preserve tablet, 50,000 years before Allah created the heavens and the earth forget about you and I, in fact, this conversation that we have, he was also written and registered 50,000 years before Allah subhanho wa Taala created the heavens and the earth because Allah knowledge is timeless, to handle or to Allah and he knows everything that will happen before it
happens. So kinda what to add. But as we know, and we've taken this in different settings, brothers and sisters in Islam in different lessons Allah gives us days days that are for us days that are against us, to build us and to grow us so that we either grow through patience that we go through thanks and no doubt right now we have to go grow more through patience but also through things. Because with every difficulty opportunities come in and we need to be thankful for those opportunities. So what I'm saying brothers and sisters in STEM tawakkol grab on to we all know telecoil is taking the means and putting our trust in Allah. We know this. We can write it down. We
teach it to our children, we can say it without thinking. But now we are in a time where especially we have to live it live the concept of the worker. And as the scholars of Islam say from the benefits of the worker is living a stress free life, the stress goes, because you're not worrying about that which isn't in your control and you proactively thinking about what is in your control what you can do proactively.
So you grow as a person in a positive way. You're not aging in a negative way. You're not aging through stress, but you're growing through development. And there's a difference. Some people when push comes to shove, they age through stress, others they grow through developments panela. So brothers and sisters is that we know what the lesson is, we need to implement it. We need to understand that whenever the thoughts come, and we feel the pressure, remind ourselves I'm going to grow gender right now by putting my trust in Allah. I'm not going to worry about about the act what Allah has written for me, because what is written for me will come I need to worry about what I can
do so that it comes to me through Hillel channels. And Hillel means that's what we're going to focus on brothers and sisters in Islam. And the record is from the greatest acts of worship, we've seen the advice of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, to his companion. Also Allah praises the messengers for the telecoil. He praises them for the taqwa for Allah tells us that the Messenger of
Allah, Allah subhana wa, you know, why is it that we, you know, why shouldn't we?
At once he has guided for us and made clear for us our way, right. And then they said
that upon those who rely rely upon Allah to doze off the people of Eman rely, we need to go back to our to heat. We need to go back to our Eman. My brothers and sisters we have to go back to knowledge which you and I consider simple. We already said this is simple knowledge. We don't people always teaching us about Laila Maki, we know about a llama. Let's take the next topic. We want something more interesting, more interesting. You know, in this knowledge junkie kind of way, we'll be searching for the next interesting thing. Let's analyze the issue of back to the basics before the grave. when push comes to shove brothers and sisters in Islam, it's all about the basics. It's about
latching on to Lyla high Lama that you keep saying and you've said that you've understood. The question is, have you understood it? Corona gives us a chance to revise ourselves and our understanding of La ilaha illAllah that there is no one worthy of worship besides one Allah and the messenger is the final messenger. Do I worship one Allah upon Do we have the final messenger? Am I doing so right now in the difficulty that I'm in? A lot of we don't ask for difficulty and we ask a lot to lift the difficult. We ask a lot always. And we put our trust in him that he knows best. And whatever he does, he does good. This is a short Friday reminder brothers and sisters in Islam. I
pray that the message reaches it's about enacting what we know I don't have to deliver a lesson on the ins and outs of the Lockwood we know it's about putting our trust in our love but not relying. Sorry, we know it's about taking the means but not relying on the means but rather relying upon Allah subhanho wa Taala let us put what we know into practice I love you all for the sake of Allah. Everything correct is from Allah alone, and any mistakes are for myself and cheered upon and I seek Allah subhanho wa Taala His forgiveness. Until next time, salaam Allahu Allah. Warhammer two
