Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh My dearest brothers and sisters in Islam Welcome to Ramadan reminders, episode number eight and I take you to sudo to hedge this reminder and in particular is number 14 in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says, Oh Allah young,
no law humi young sudo La ilaha illa Allah says Allah indeed will help and support the one who helps and support Allah subhanho wa Taala
I am number 40 in Surah Al Hajj and this particular area so Hannah law
really is yet another principle from the ayat from the verses that denote principles in the book of Allah subhanho wa Taala
principles of life
reality based principles, like we've been trying to share this Ramadan in our movano reminders from obviously the works of our scholars both present and past those who are alive May Allah subhanho wa Taala preserve them and those who have passed away May Allah subhanho wa Taala shower His mercy upon them. I mean, your opinion, I mean,
the question that really comes to mind when we hear an ayah like this is how do we support Allah subhanho wa Taala for Allah subhanho wa Taala is beyond needing support. Right? He's beyond needing support, He is the Creator, he is the king of kings, the Lord of the worlds and Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah is saying here that Allah will support the one who supports him. What does this mean? Well, to understand this, we should look at
the context of the ayah and we must then go to Ayah number 41. In surah, to hedge for in this particular ayah Allah subhanho wa Taala explains what he means when he says support Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah subhanho wa Taala says Allah Dena imechanica, whom fill out a karma salata Zakat, or amaru, Bill maroof. Wonder who I mean mooncup Allah He activated amo La ilaha illa Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala he says that he speaks about a group of people that supported Allah and they received Allah support he says they are those who in Allah subhanho wa Taala established them on Earth. What did they do? They observed the Salah, and they gave out the Zika and they invited
towards good they were an advocate towards all that which was good and they worked against the spread of evil. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says what in law he asked people to move Subhana Allah indeed with Allah subhanho wa Taala are the endings the endings of affairs are Allah subhanho wa Taala you just have to do the work leave the rest of us have Anahata and swallow and Allah subhanho wa Taala in the eye like this, it brings solace to the self because it gives you hope and makes you realize that you just have to do that which constitutes supporting Allah and leave the rest to Allah subhanho wa Taala he will support you for his promised it will add promise it. If we look at the
ayah I number 40 Allah says, while I am Soren Allah, that in the indeed without doubt, Allah subhanho wa Taala will support the reality of of the wedding denotes a confirmation. This is from the beautiful nature of the Arabic language that just in the addition of a letter, you get these confirmations that are attached to statements. Allah says indeed without doubt Allah will support you. And then Subhan Allah, Allah, Allah enzyme number 14 says in the law, we use disease, that Indeed Allah is the strong one. Disease is the honorable one. He's the strongest of all, he is the most honorable, alone break his promise to you. He's promising you that he will support you is as
easy as honorable he's mighty, his mighty and honorable Aziz mighty and honorable subhanho wa Taala. Right. So if Allah subhana wa Taala, promises to support you, he's not going to break his promise. So this is
this is another confirmation that we have from the ayah we have a physical confirmation in the presence of the lamb when Allah subhanho wa Taala says, well, Allah, and then we have a metaphorical we have an physical confirmation, a meaningful confirmation and that is when Allah tells us who he is that he is the strongest of the strong and the mightiest and the most honorable, that nothing can overcome Allah and Allah will never break his promise. So rest assured the help of Allah is coming.
And when we look into it, number 41. As we've just taken, we see what Allah Subhana Allah what Allah wants us to do to be able to receive his support. Supporting Allah means supporting the religion of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Looking after his commands, and when the month of taqwa which is the month of looking after the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala looking after the commands of Allah subhanho wa Taala staying away from the prohibitions, spreading the religion, spreading
The ideals that Allah subhanho wa Taala has sent on earth during the work of Muhammad Ali Abdullah Saleh alayhi wa sallam for we collectively carry his legacy, the legacy of prophethood that started with Adam alayhis salam and ended with him and the legacy of of messengers, which started with new Halley's salam, and ended with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam for the first messenger was new. And the last messenger was Mohammed Abdullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam support Allah and Allah will support you, brothers and sisters in Islam.
There's many examples in the Quran, where Allah subhanho wa Taala uses this term Nasir to describe who was supported and sometimes why support didn't come if we look at what Allah subhanho wa Taala we know what happened. And we know what happened at 100. Right? We know that the Muslims are winning and then a group of the fighters didn't follow the instructions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and calamity struck the Muslims. They didn't follow the instruction of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam they didn't follow the instruction and calamity struck today we calling out and saying, you know, ways the help of Allah subhanho wa Taala so many Muslims on Earth, but
their placement is irrelevant. The leadership is irrelevant. Where are they? Well, how many teachings of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam Do you follow? And how many times do you just say you know what they just assume that the prophets Allah, some said it's not in the Quran, Allah.
Allah, save us from ourselves.
Right? We are the sinning brothers and sisters in Islam in our lives. We are we trying to walk in the footsteps of the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasallam. But this message is a reminder to me myself. By the way, no one's perfect. And I'm not saying we're going to be perfect, right? But I'm saying where are we is our effort to try and be perfect? Where are our tears because we're not perfect. We are our doors for a lot to help us revive the son of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and to be upon the do's and stay away from the don'ts and seek forgiveness for falling into the areas that we shouldn't have fallen into so that we can receive the support from Allah subhanho wa Taala. When
last did we
sit down with our salah and audit? It's so we can calibrate it and make it better? When last did we you know, give sadaqa above our Sokka and increase in the sadaqa right? When we do that, when did we audit our charity? When did we audit our our our ability to revive the sin and spread it and teach people who go against it of the evil of the actions when Lastly, we do that today? We see people doing this at least people and let people be you know don't judge? Yes. Don't judge no one judges besides Allah, but Allah told you you still got to invite towards good and evil. It doesn't mean he's doing evil that you better than him but you still have to tell him that this is wrong my
brother This is wrong. My sister
right shavon puts us in in this this vortex of delusion.
Right. So we just yesterday we spoke about making excuses to justify our failure. So we say no, you know we mustn't judge brother. Let the person be alone. You don't know maybe you know he stands at night in praise or lie. Maybe he stands in knighted breeze. You are absolutely right. That is 100% true, or lie he may get two gentlemen before us. That is a real fact. But that doesn't mean we should not advise him or her because of the wrongs that they do. It's two different things. Why are we conflating one issue over the other support Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah subhanho wa Taala will support you brothers and sisters in Islam.
If we are relying on ourselves and our intelligence and our skills and our money, our financial standing our material well being with no attachment to Allah subhanho wa Taala without putting Allah subhanho wa Taala first the help of Allah will not come and we will always be lost. If you put Allah subhanho wa Taala First, you will never ever be lost. Well, they also run Allah minion surah in the La La COVID une Aziz, read it number 1441 again and ponder over it, make it your station of the double for this evening. I love you all for the sake of Allah. Until next time, Salaam Alaikum alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
