00:00:55--> 00:00:57

Brothers and sisters as we

00:00:58--> 00:01:02

head toward the ending of this great month of Ramadan.

00:01:06--> 00:01:07

I would like to

00:01:08--> 00:01:16

leave you and myself with some great advice from the Quran and from our Prophet Alayhi salat wa Salaam

00:01:18--> 00:01:21

wa spirou. In Aloma saw being

00:01:24--> 00:01:25

more than ever before.

00:01:27--> 00:01:29

In this time in which we live,

00:01:30--> 00:01:32

Muslims

00:01:33--> 00:01:35

must have Sabra

00:01:43--> 00:01:44

Be patient.

00:01:46--> 00:01:48

All laws with those who are patient.

00:01:52--> 00:01:57

It is no accident that the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam called this month.

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

shabu sobre

00:02:01--> 00:02:03

it is the month of patience.

00:02:05--> 00:02:07

And we have to ask ourselves the question

00:02:08--> 00:02:11

as we move toward the end of Ramadan

00:02:13--> 00:02:22

is this fasting and in or is it a means to an end?

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

The answer is both of them.

00:02:27--> 00:02:35

We hope to last upon the waterline Yama, Yama that we will see the reward of our fasting number one,

00:02:36--> 00:02:37

but number two,

00:02:39--> 00:02:44

the fast is like a vehicle to take us somewhere.

00:02:46--> 00:02:58

And when you go to the airport and you go and you sit in the plane and you sit in the plane for two hours and after sitting in the plane for two hours you come off of the plane and say Alhamdulillah I went on the plane know

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

the purpose of the plane is to take you somewhere

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

it is a vehicle to take you somewhere

00:03:08--> 00:03:19

good the ballet museum kamakoti Balala Dena makaveli comm lolicon tactical vest and is prescribed for you as it was prescribed for those who came before you.

00:03:21--> 00:03:42

Maybe perhaps that you would receive admonition perhaps you would fare a lot perhaps you would have this God consciousness. So the thing I want to focus today is how much sobra patients have we gotten in this month of Ramadan Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon said

00:03:44--> 00:03:49

no one has been given a greater gift than the gift of patience.

00:03:50--> 00:03:53

Every once in a while there's a word

00:03:55--> 00:04:06

that if you want to understand the meaning of the word, you don't merely go to the dictionary. Because the dictionary won't give you a real meaning of the word one of those words is sobra.

00:04:08--> 00:04:12

If you look in the dictionary, they say sobra means patience. Yes, true.

00:04:13--> 00:04:14

But what but what is it?

00:04:15--> 00:04:28

So I decided today in this goodbar to give you a demonstration of Sabra and there's never a better demonstrator of any good except Mohammed. Salah suddenly

00:04:30--> 00:04:41

this ad is related by Ennis rajala and said that the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam passed by a woman near a grave

00:04:42--> 00:04:45

and he said to her, it tequila

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

was very

00:04:51--> 00:04:54

be conscious of Allah and be patient.

00:04:56--> 00:05:00

You know what she said to the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam you know

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

Without the sponsor was

00:05:03--> 00:05:06

he like anime for in the column two sub B mu C but he

00:05:07--> 00:05:18

he like Get away from me because you have not experienced what I have experienced and the Prophet. He didn't say anything he left.

00:05:20--> 00:05:27

And after the Prophet left someone came to her and said that was the Messenger of Allah. She didn't recognize him.

00:05:28--> 00:05:51

So immediately she got up and she went to the house of the prophets of Allah saddam. And listen to what she said. She said, I went to his house and I found no guards next to his no doorman, no guards next to his house. I want you to imagine for a moment let us go to Washington, DC, to go visit Mr. Obama,

00:05:52--> 00:05:57

and go to his house and notice that there's no gods in front of this house. Wouldn't that be something?

00:05:59--> 00:06:04

Then again, you may not find any Gods next to us house. That's another topic.

00:06:05--> 00:06:12

And so she said, I didn't recognize you and the Prophet Alayhi salat wa salam said,

00:06:15--> 00:06:21

verily, patience is at that first moment of shock.

00:06:22--> 00:06:28

Not a week later, not a month later, not a year later. But that first moment when you get that

00:06:30--> 00:06:37

news, how do you respond? And I'm saying to you brothers and sisters Today,

00:06:38--> 00:06:40

more than ever before.

00:06:41--> 00:06:45

Muslims are required to have this thing called Sabra.

00:06:47--> 00:06:49

I take issue with what she said.

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

You have not

00:06:54--> 00:07:06

reached my calamity. You can say that about anyone else. But you could not say that about the Prophet Mohammed, solo somebody. This afternoon. I'm asking you how much do you know about your profit?

00:07:08--> 00:07:09

For instance,

00:07:10--> 00:07:12

how many children did he have?

00:07:14--> 00:07:15

He had seven children,

00:07:16--> 00:07:19

four girls, and three boys.

00:07:21--> 00:07:31

Usually the parent, usually the child buries the parent, and not the parent, burying the children.

00:07:36--> 00:07:37

It is worth noting

00:07:38--> 00:07:45

that of the seven children of the Prophet peace and blessing be upon them. Six of them die before he died.

00:07:46--> 00:07:58

He buried six of his own children. And the only child left after his death was Fatima radula. And her and she died six months after the death of the Prophet Sunday last Sunday.

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

You can say about Bill Gates.

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

Bill, you don't know what it's like to be poor.

00:08:09--> 00:08:13

You don't know what it's like to be homeless. You can say that a bill about Bill Gates.

00:08:14--> 00:08:17

But you can't say that about the Prophet salaallah suddenly.

00:08:18--> 00:08:26

How often did you read that the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him and his companions were so hungry that they had to eat leaves

00:08:27--> 00:08:46

in if you had to eat leaves. Some of you may complain you don't like your house. I don't like the house that I'm living. I want to live in a better house. One blood for my mansion in Brooklyn is a big armory that houses 1000 homeless men.

00:08:49--> 00:08:54

You most of you don't know what it's like to be homeless but the Prophet did la salat wa salam.

00:08:55--> 00:09:01

And they had to make migration from Mecca to Medina. They had to leave their homes.

00:09:03--> 00:09:05

You want to complain about something?

00:09:06--> 00:09:11

There is a prominent non Muslim lawyer. He came to visit me one year.

00:09:13--> 00:09:15

He said hey, ma'am. Suraj I need your advice.

00:09:17--> 00:09:24

You see, my father abandoned us when I was a little boy. He never was in our lives. I hated him.

00:09:25--> 00:09:28

And I just found out that he's in the hospital he's dying.

00:09:29--> 00:09:32

In mmm Suraj I need your advice. Should I go see him?

00:09:33--> 00:09:35

No, you have to do think for a moment.

00:09:37--> 00:09:41

If this man didn't want to see his father, why come see me? Just don't go see him.

00:09:42--> 00:09:57

So the fact that he came to me asking my advice, I know what he wanted me to do to tell him to go see his father. I said, you have to go see your father. Go see your father. He's your father. No matter what he did. He's your father. Go see your father

00:09:58--> 00:10:00

and he went to go to the house.

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

To see his father and he came back with tears in his eyes crying, it's an Imam Suraj Thank you. Thank you so much for giving me advice to go see my father.

00:10:10--> 00:10:22

Some of you have complaints about your father you had a father. The Prophet Mohammed's father died even before he was born. You want to complain about your mother, you want to complain about your father.

00:10:23--> 00:10:26

And when the Prophet was five or six years old, his mother died.

00:10:27--> 00:10:31

And then his grandfather took over his life in two years he died.

00:10:33--> 00:10:38

You You want to complain about something? How about the year

00:10:39--> 00:10:52

of sorrow of the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. When his uncle Abu Talib died in his wife Khadija died, his beloved Khadija she died. What complaint? do you have?

00:10:54--> 00:10:59

What spirou in alarm, soybean Be patient along with those who are patient.

00:11:00--> 00:11:01

I believe right now

00:11:03--> 00:11:07

that our prisons are filled with people who lack patience.

00:11:09--> 00:11:12

Right now the hospitals are filled with people who lacked patience.

00:11:14--> 00:11:17

The graveyards are filled with people lack patience.

00:11:19--> 00:11:33

I believe that right now, there are brothers sitting here who divorce their wives because they lack patience. I believe that their sisters who got divorced from their husband because they lack patience.

00:11:35--> 00:12:12

Do you know what the 10th leading cause of death in our country is? The 10th leading cause of death in America is suicide. Some 40,000 Americans take their lives every year. Some 750,000 Americans attempt to take their lives every year. According to the World Health Organization around the world, some 800,000 people take their lives every year. According to the World Health Organization, some 20 million people around the globe every year take their own lives someone said

00:12:13--> 00:12:18

that suicide is a permanent solution for temporary problems.

00:12:19--> 00:12:30

And then some people thinking that if I can only commit suicide I'll get away from from this world and my troubles will be ending I'm telling you that if you commit suicide, your problems is just beginning.

00:12:32--> 00:12:38

What's below in the llama soybean Be patient, Allah is with those who are patient.

00:12:39--> 00:12:43

Brothers and sisters, we have some very difficult days ahead. I can see

00:12:44--> 00:12:48

I can feel it in the atmosphere Muslims will be tried heavily.

00:12:49--> 00:12:50

And

00:12:51--> 00:12:52

the thing that we must do

00:12:54--> 00:13:06

regardless to all the difficulties that come to us, we have to have patience. If you want to have patience, look to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam welcome the law of the land to me.

00:13:17--> 00:13:19

Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen Lonmin

00:13:22--> 00:13:24

runs this is I like to give you

00:13:27--> 00:13:29

a real pitch of patience.

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

I believe that what I'm about to tell you

00:13:39--> 00:13:42

about one of the great companions of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them.

00:13:44--> 00:13:53

He said abou have a father

00:14:01--> 00:14:05

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

One of the sons of value axiom after the prophet who was the best Muslim he said Abu Bakr

00:14:14--> 00:14:16

so this afternoon I would like to

00:14:18--> 00:14:22

give to you what I believe was our Barker's finest hour.

00:14:23--> 00:14:39

And when you read the Syrah of the Prophet when you read about the life of Abu Bakr, you find an immaculate companion, the first Khalifa after the Prophet Mohammed Salah said them and you've read so many things about the virtues of Abu Bakr but what about to tell you I believe Abu Bakr is finest hour

00:14:41--> 00:14:42

if you were x,

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

which Muslim, pragmatic,

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

calm

00:14:50--> 00:14:52

under situations

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

you may be tempted to say Omar Abdullah Al Khattab and you probably be right

00:14:59--> 00:15:00

great compassion.

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

In strong

00:15:03--> 00:15:10

it is interesting to know that Prophet Musa Li salat wa salam is mentioned in the Quran 136 times.

00:15:12--> 00:15:17

In Mohammed la salat wa salam as mentioned by name in Quran only four times.

00:15:19--> 00:15:21

When the Prophet died,

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

the great Omar ora de la en socata sworn

00:15:29--> 00:15:30

in said Well,

00:15:35--> 00:15:38

I swear that Mohammed is not dead.

00:15:40--> 00:15:41

Omar last

00:15:45--> 00:15:46

year comes up ibaka

00:15:48--> 00:15:51

he just learns the death of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.

00:15:53--> 00:15:55

He goes to the house of his daughter Isha.

00:15:56--> 00:16:00

And he uncovers the face of the Prophet and kiss him.

00:16:01--> 00:16:06

And so and so Rasulullah sallallahu sallam,

00:16:08--> 00:16:12

you are beautiful in depth, and beautiful life.

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

In one minute.

00:16:21--> 00:16:25

Who was that man that was dead there. You said the Messenger of Allah, you're right.

00:16:27--> 00:16:34

But not only was he the Messenger of Allah, that was his best friend laying their childhood friend.

00:16:36--> 00:16:50

Not only that, this his son in law laying there, the Messenger of Allah, Allah. He just learned of the death of the Messenger of Allah and you have to understand that they love him more than they love themselves.

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

In the novel Baka he gathers the people he praises Allah

00:16:57--> 00:16:59

and he gives the speech of his life.

00:17:00--> 00:17:09

Allah, maintainer, yopu ma Mohammed enfocado Mohamed Salah level sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:17:12--> 00:17:16

woman

00:17:19--> 00:17:20

in the law hate you.

00:17:23--> 00:17:27

Those who worship Allah Allah is alive and alone never dies.

00:17:29--> 00:17:38

And then he quoted the Quran in the Commedia, to whom a tune you will die and they will die.

00:17:39--> 00:17:40

All of us will die.

00:17:44--> 00:17:46

Heavy social tastes of them.

00:17:48--> 00:17:57

How would you respond when your wife died? When your husband died? When your father died? Your mother died your brother, your sister, your friend, your mom, your scholars? How would you respond when they die?

00:17:59--> 00:18:03

We hope that we would be like Alibaba and then Alibaba finished

00:18:04--> 00:18:06

and decided to end

00:18:07--> 00:18:11

well man Mohammed ornella Rasul Allah.

00:18:15--> 00:18:17

Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah.

00:18:18--> 00:18:29

And Muhammad is only a messenger messengers have died before, and if he's died, if he dies, even if he's murdered. Will you then turn back your heels? When was that verse revealed?

00:18:30--> 00:18:35

That verse was revealed eight years before the death of the Prophet peace and blessings be upon them.

00:18:36--> 00:18:39

It was rumored in the battle, that the Prophet was dead.

00:18:40--> 00:18:45

The Prophet was wounded. Some say 40 foot knocked out.

00:18:46--> 00:18:53

And the Muslims are running around in the Battle of the hood, and it shut out the door and half x the Prophet Alayhi. salat wa salam

00:18:54--> 00:19:13

alayka yo human cannot shut down. was their day more difficult than the battle? I want you to think about the Battle of God, I want you to think that the people are thinking that the messenger is dead. 70 Muslims died in that battle. Among them Hamza, the uncle of the Prophet, peace and blessings be upon them.

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

of the 70 Muslim that were killed in the battle. How many of them was from the end song?

00:19:20--> 00:19:33

If you study history, you find out that 65 of them with the answer and the answer didn't say, Look at us what's going on here. All of our people are dying. The Maha Joon you getting off on people dying No.

00:19:35--> 00:19:36

Patient

00:19:37--> 00:19:40

and just for the record when you get a chance, I was studying the Battle of Uhud.

00:19:42--> 00:19:45

And I read that above seussian

00:19:46--> 00:19:48

was the Amir of this group.

00:19:50--> 00:19:59

A kurama. Eben abijah. Jolly was a mayor of the left flank. Khalid bin Walid was the mayor of the right flank

00:20:01--> 00:20:05

An Ama ebenen us was the mayor of the Calvin. Calvary

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

is in an interesting that every one of them became Muslim.

00:20:12--> 00:20:16

There are people saying things about Islam brothers and sisters Don't curse them.

00:20:17--> 00:20:22

Today they curse Islam tomorrow they may be the best companions of the Muslims.

00:20:23--> 00:20:24

Be patient.

00:20:25--> 00:20:26
