Walesa delicately I hadn't learned movement in a sobre todo sobre la jolla la who were in asaba to Sala Shakira for Colonel hi Rhonda who Oh c'mon color Elaine Salatu was Salam. Honorable scholars respected brothers, friends and elders, mothers and sisters. It is no secret that the Muslim Ummah and the global community is going through some very turbulent times and experience in some very volatile situations. At the inception, let me reiterate the situation outside is so
volatile type A doesn't allow and warrant even a single second to indulge in sin, haraam and prohibition. The moment is too critical The challenges are just too daunting. Say the man said to his son adonia bahuguna me Laura puffy Hill, una bella Haroon finish Tata Tata, Virgil Safina taka taka la Oh my son. This word is a deep ocean. The tides are high, the waters are rough. I've seen vessels dip I've seen sailors die for in his tatata fragile, Safina Takata Cola, if you can make the obedience of Allah your vessel, hopefully you will get to shore land lakka and tenjo wala araca, Nigeria. But given the volatility outside, I have no guarantee in place that you will make it or
safer even a man who was blessed with being the confidant of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he said a time will come before qiyamah none will be rescued from the trials of that time. But the one who banks beseeches and implores Allah like a drowning person. When a person is drowning, his screaming at the optimum of His voice is yelling out. Those who scream out who bang out who employ and beseech Allah hopefully they will be rescued. Any person familiar with Islamic history will know that there's been a systematic plan of the enemies of Islam to inflict pain, harm to the Muslim Ummah and more specifically to the messenger sallallahu Sallam from the beginning of time. This is not some
new discovery or revelation at times when they failed in their mission to assassinate the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And they left no stone unturned in trying to drop his mission, what they say in English, it is better to die for a cause that will live than to live for a cause that will die. It is better to die for a cause that will live than to live for a cause that will die. So they used and instituted every measure in the book to try and incapacitate the messenger sallallahu wasallam. To the extent apart from plotting his assassination, they were people who had a strong eye, you know we speak about a lion ohakune the province awesome speaks about it.
The jealousy the envy si is a reality. So sometimes you look at the person and you don't read the necessary do as either deliberately or inadvertently you can transmit some unpleasantness towards that individual and he or she can take il Allah speaks about this in the Quran that what do I we should read Walla Walla in the hulten attacca Tamasha Allahu La quwata illa Billah that when you enter the garden in the orchard Why don't you say Masha Allah Allah quwata illa Billah so there was a person in Allah reference this is in the Quran that he had such a strong I would that I they could literally drop a camel down. They could drop a camel does not mention in the Quran, but the verse
that I'm going to share with you is that they tried to drop the Prophet sallallahu wasallam he aka de la Vina cafaro lejos de una kabhi Abba sorry him Lana Sami, Radhika yaku Luna Enola Majnoon and they tried very hard to drop you and to cause you to slip and fall and stumble, what they gaze in their vision, but surely the prophets Allah awesome was divinely protected. So when they failed in their attempt, then they said Natasha bus will be here soon, okay, we just wait he'll die and once he dies, his faith will also wither dwindle and diminish. So Allah responded in two ways. Allah said after emitter for whom will hardly do so what if you die? Are they gonna live?
So what if you die? Are they going to live? So they had this desire that something must happen yet Allah passerby como de wa in the 11 Jews in the opening verses Allah says that they are waiting for a calamity to befall you. They're waiting for you to be struck and grabbed and seize by some unpleasant occurrence. But this is the focus that I want to make in my brief address. As a believer, and this is something that is unique to a believer, you really cannot paralyze him, because every situation is for his own betterment. This is something unique to a believer, regardless of it being apparently pleasant or otherwise, a blessing a parent or in disguise. A believer only recovers from
each situation. And he draws the rich lessons from each situation and he moves forward. So it becomes a springboard for him to propel. So sometimes people have obnoxious intentions, sinister agendas, but the plan of Allah only shapes out perfectly well. When you really look when you really look right?
At Pharaohs, tyranny, oppression, exploitation, and he's
rebellions against Moosa and his brother Harun. Then without him realizing he actually opened up the scene for people to realize the beauty of the teachings of Musa alayhis salaam. So as much as his agenda was to clip moose as wings and contain and suppress him so your muzzle is salado and this will play out throughout times. This will play out the names of the characters will change, but the same scene will play out a believe the Quran says it's so beautifully you waiting to paralyze us, you waiting to destroy us, actually you only waiting for one of two goods for us. Either you're hoping that Allah gives us or honors us by martyrdom in his path. Or if we suffer any difficulty
then upon every infliction we rewarded Guadalajara Tara persona Bina Illa doll first name the point I want to focus and impress upon myself and you in the brief time is if we have the correct eye and I just have a quick reflection and I'll come back to what I was saying.
And I read this in bio neuron under this verse lotta three Bali cumin young, amazing deduction, reflection in introspection. So when a brother of use of the siblings of use of worry united with use of and the law speaks about the tail in great detail. Then in one go, he said, I've put in you all, I'm done. I've closed the chapter we moving on. Now, he was a human as much as he was a prophet and a human is not exempt from human emotions. So a prophet experiences hot cold happiness, sadness, loneliness, family, emotions, and that's the wisdom of Allah that He made the Prophet immortal so that we can find direction in our day to day
lives from the life of a prophet. But if the Prophet was a different creation, exempt from human emotions, then we would say, well, it's so easy for him. He has angelic qualities. He is a Divine Creature is something else. So he doesn't feel hungry, he doesn't feel thirsty. He doesn't contend with marital turbulence. He doesn't have to go through those emotions. But Allah made the Prophet, a mortal a human, so that he could experience those emotions, and we could find direction in those emotions. So the question comes to us as much as the Prophet Yusuf was a prophet, but he was a human, for his own siblings to systematically inflict such a harm over him which scholars say either
40 years or 80 years, he was separated. And then he was reunited. And in one breath with great calmness, he said, lotta three Ba La como Leo, listen, I'm done. I'm over, I forgiven you. And that's not all. I also ask Allah to forgive you.
Well, we almost like choking. I haven't and inshallah Allah won't.
If I can hold back if I could, hypothetically hold back Allah spot and I'm like, No, you know, the Hadeeth. The person said, Allah will never forgive him.
So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said,
Allah said Mandela yet Allah Allah Nila thoroughly Fudan and who's become so brave to pronounce a judgment on my part that I will not forgive. Because you have said this now I have forgiven him.
Does authentic narration Now listen to this, this amazing analogy I just read the other day.
Where did use of Allison because end of the day, you need to have
some power house which invigorates you, which energizes you? If there isn't a place from where you draw in power, then obviously at some point you're gonna burn out. That's the reality. So even if you operate in at optimum now, but if you are not refueling and recharging, then you know what, you're going to be torn in on yourself. And finally, you're going to be running thin and dry and weak and lame and feeble, and you're going to burn out.
So when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam blesses uncle Hamza, the Alanna was martyred, say the Shahada and his emotions were running high. And Allah contained his emotions. And Allah rescued him like in every situation. And initially, he said, No, I'm so disturbed and perturb, we need to avenge and revenge. And we're going to claim the lives of 70 people in lieu of the demise, and the brutal murder and the mutilation of my uncle. It was just not a murder. It was a mutilation. And that's the teachings of Islam dhakaram respect and dignity that even in a battle don't kill a woman don't kill a child don't cut the flower in three don't harm infrastructure, don't harm nature. These are the
teachings that in something which by its nature is apparently unpleasant, even though he said it as the backbone for us and even when you slaughter became in the manner you slaughter, so you seen a person holding an animal and he was dragging it. He said A to D do unto me the hamata like how many times do you want to kill this animal? Wow, kindness in something that nature of which is apparently unpleasant. And Allah rescued his emotions. And he said, while I'm saying you need the power house, we're in nakaba dongba debo b mytho. Naima arrow kibito wala in sobre la,
la Siberian waspi Roma, Saba Roca in La Bella Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam if you want to avenge or take revenge, then let it be measured, let it be calculated, let it be proportionate to the infliction that was inflicted upon you. Whether in savato and if you persevere, there's nothing better. And that's the general rule. But you O Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam being the paragon of Allah creation was bare. Max.
Can you imagine his pain his hurt was at a level that he was actually anticipate or he was actually considering the option of abandoning the mutilation the brutal assassination of his uncle by taking the lives of 70 and Allah said, one for one, and actually if you persevere, it's better and you open up whatever law you have to persevere. And then Allah said, wama stockbroker in below, that divine server will be inspired on you only from Allah and only unlock and give you strength.
And that is the point. I'm saying you
You've heard the interviews of so many people who've lost the near and dear ones, and and media is interviewing them and people are like really? I'm intrigued in your faith, looking at the calmness of your response. Looking at the calmness of this is the beauty of Islam. The beauty of Islam is that a believer finds solace in every cityu Asian sodomy Abby waqqas had lost his vision. He was one whose prayers were answered. People would line up in the numbers and requesting make law for this make draw. And he would make draw up the lightning Ibiza a young boy came to him requesting him to make draw so he made draw. He said Oh, sad I there's something very strange. You're a man whose
prayers are answered people line up in the numbers you request Allah accepts your dua and the prophet SAW Some said, I think matamata can muster Jabba da keep your food halaal and Allah will answer your prayers. But you visually impaired you blind. Why don't you seize the opportunity of your own prayers and ask Allah to restore your own vision. And he said I can do it about Allah here in a minute the bursary but it gives me a greater thrill to be happy on what my lord has decreed for me, than to ask him to alter it for me in any way. How do you challenge this nation? How do you defeat an individual who finds navigation in every crisis?
How do you paralyze him? So the Sahabi is going and an arrow strikes him. And as he collapses he says foodstore up al Qaeda by the nod of the Kaaba, I made it so the murderer ninjas the other Muslim is inauthentic narrations is like Hang on, I'm triumphant. I'm victorious. Is his is the victim. He's been overpowered and he's claiming victory is his Hang on. There is another victory. We talk about. These a victory. We talked about that he has died a noble life he has died. While I
put a lot of his appeal in law he
Bell. They are alive years ago. They are sustained for the theme. They are ecstatic. Yesterday she wrote they are happy.
We read in Surah Yaseen Allah speaks about my point is my brother, how many times in your life and my life have I seen that something has happened to me, or to the oma? And for a moment, I actually lost my breath. And there was these whispers within me, but why Allah, but how come? But I don't seem to understand this puzzle. And with the passage of time, gradually, the wisdom of Allah started unfolding to me, and that's the little that I've understood otherwise, I've never had the capacity to fully grasp the wisdom of Allah in my own life, in my family's life. I lost a job and I said, Allah, what, but my Lord knew what he had in place for me. And then there was a setback, and there
was a, there was a, there was some medical diagnosis, or there was some other snags in my life, only to know that every situation had something behind it. And the plan of Allah was perfect.
So say, Ethan, I use could pardon his brothers at one goal, and this is what the MRI, the reason is, the one who views the happening of the creation with the direct eye, he will stagnate at that level, and he will lose his whole life trying to advocate his innocence and he's exoneration now but my boss was like this to me, but my partner was like this to me, but my neighbor was like this year, but my sibling Snyder, you know, defaulted, is looking with the direct guy. But the one who looks what the deeper I, he says these were just tools of the execution of the plan of align in my favor.
They were just there. And they were just doing what Allah had decreed. They were just doing what Allah so he can rise above because he doesn't see it with the narrow eyes. He doesn't see it with the shallow eye. He doesn't see it with the limited gaze, he sees it Okay, these were my brothers plotted against me had a nasty agenda dropped me in the well the Galvin picked me up, but Hello, had it not been for them, I wouldn't have ended up on the throne of Egypt. That's the irony of a believer, my brother, and that's what the prophet of Allah said, and that's the Hadith I quoted before you. I marvel at a believer. I'm paraphrasing, I marvel in the umbra, who cola who know
in his lap, his only luck. Whatever falls in his lap is only luck.
when say that our Musa alayhis salam came to give him that word,
and present the deen of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So Pharaoh oppose it. And he challenged the Musa alayhis salam. And he tried you know, today my brothers
there's nothing we need to be more firm on than our Iman.
We are religious and diligent and punctual in everything, but our faith.
I'll give you a quick reflection of a verse and then I'll make progress from there. So Allah speaks about one of the pagan one of the deviant practices of the pagan Arabs in the Quran. That they had subjected religion, to their whims to their norms. Now, once you start tampering with religion, to suit you, then gradually religion departs and then it's a name and there's nothing left and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said before qiyamah Leia becoming an Islamic law is smooth camino para la smo masajid O'Meara Mira,
Buddha, before tiama nothing will remain from Islam but rituals and formality, nothing will remain from fade but the name the massage it will be adorned and decorated, but bereft and devoid of guidance.
So, allama Rumi makes mention of this year and is just as a point of reflection, where person went to have a lion tattooed on his back.
So the person started with the tattoo, and it's like, Ah, that's excruciating. That's painful. Where's this? Now I'm starting with the tail. Okay, you do get lions without a tail. Leave the tail out.
You do get lions. I mean, sometimes the lion is injured is bruised in the wild. It's possible. Okay. Oh, man. That's that's really excruciating. What's that? I'm starting with the leg. Well, you do get lions with three legs. They hopping around, it's still a lion. Moving moving. No Dave, no legs, no back. Is there a lion? And that's precisely where you and I find ourselves? no interest. Now you can be a Muslim if you still indulge in interest. No, you can be a Muslim if you still do this year. I've chopped this I've omitted that I've excluded that. There's no lion without legs and tails and body there's no Islam left my brother.
There's no Islam left.
So one of the deviant practices of the pagan Arab was they used to chop and change. And let me share with you a quick fadeev model of the Alanna was in his fatal illness. So people gathered around him so this they started crying. So Mahara vilano said man you became what makes you cry. They said navigate lll, melody and Katia Manor in the motive. We worried that you're going to die and what you will grow your knowledge is that I will go and my knowledge will go that's with me. But Quran and Hadith will remain till tiama.
For the zoo, Anneli kitabi Canal, Kalam, voila, Shea mineral column, recently I to give a talk to some academic minded, and, you know, back and forth on certain delicate, intricate issues. And I said, if this is the precedence with which we progress in the discussion, then we can make progress. But if we're not agreeing on the common principles, then I'm afraid we're comparing apples with bananas. So Mara, the man who said, Judge every piece of information through the light of the Quran, and don't judge the Koran through any article, or any columnist or any, in any entrepreneur, or any philanthropist, or any person, subject, you're thinking through the light of the Quran, don't
subject the Quran. No, but listen, this is my research and this is my findings. And this is what I've come to realize. And this is what archaeologists have discovered and this is what economists predict. And this is what a this person's no no no no. For rd though it kitabi Canal column, every piece of information subjected to the Quran, okay, the Quran refutes this. The Quran embraces this, the Quran says this, don't subject the Koran to what you think is human understand.
If we that that's the basis of faith, that's the basis of faith.
So they had this DVD and practice and again, I'm repeating for the benefit of the brothers or have just come in here. My message is that the believer every situation
propels him to a greater height, he bounces back. He is resilient. You don't he takes a punch, he kind of feels it little, but you don't drop him down. Because wherever he is, he knows that if he just manages himself, right, he's winning right through. He's winning right through.
I told you, you can talk of a psychologist, you can talk of a therapist.
But when you talk of people who make peace with their medical condition, despite having the options of cure other than believers,
right, now, you can you can take psychology to another level and you take a person into different discussions and I share with you on my mind is running the show to
share with you a lesson from Quran on psychology. And we talk of today you know what comfort in the person bringing ease to the person but it's just like, like, how can you believe a bee in in dark? How can you believe a bee loss? Like he's got it, it's happening.
So there's a verse of the Quran where Allah subhanho wa Taala speaks about the mother of musawah Oh hyena, Illa Mimosa and
for either 15 or LA, de philia. Meanwhile, toffee well.
So the mother Moosa is told put Moosa in the basket, put the basket in the oven I, that's the category explicit injunction of the Quran that the intelligence of Pharaoh wants to apprehend him, put the baby in the basket, put the basket in the oven I and then the command to the ribbon, I'll take the basket to the show. Wow.
And then the most amazing part, Allah tells a mother Musa Don't worry, I've sent moose as enemy to receive Him.
And accompanied minor,
received by enemy info, there's a verse of the Quran is like Allah is showing how his plan is gonna break through, it's gonna defy and deny your plan in your strategy in front of what you do, and the words of the Quran.
My enemy and his enemies waiting on the show to receive Him.
Like, haha, that is why under this ayah my word Allah says, When Pharaoh picked him up, so, he was sitting in he used to stroll on the river Nile and he was thrown in and there was this arc, in which this basket in which Moosa was placed, Allah will be unwilling to kneel. The waves are just gently playing with this, this basket and it's carrying precious cargo. It's Moosa in the making. It's a profit in the making. This is precious cargo. The lab will be unwilling to kneel explaining playing around and throne is just relaxing and is having a day out and him and his wife as the aventa Musa him are strolling yet anessa hanyalah shot in Neil, they strolling?
Well, hell right under the sun. Okay, sad. And she nudges him. Have you seen the basket? Yes, I have seen it.
I wonder strange Why would someone do it? What's it? La Casa de Santo. He instructs bring it. So when the basket comes. And the child's face is there now? A child regardless color creed, ethnicity when he's a child, his sweet is innocent. He's adorable. You know, like one of the scholars say when children are small, you say, I feel like he Dyneema then when he grows up, you say I wish I ate him.
Because now the child becomes a monster. Now you like ooh, you know, it was so sweet man. A, I just felt like, you know, you streaks I could bite it up. And now when he grows up, he's arrogant. He's already he's proud. He's got an attitude. You know, and you you you find this dichotomy, this contradiction between the sweet, loving, adorable child and this monster that has come out and you don't know when it happened, where it happened and you just cannot read. Imagine. So any child, as small as he is history.
And, and this is a this is a profit. So understand it's a child that's innocent, then it's a profit in the making. And then the Quran adds to it.
to LA, Mahabharata, mini Wali, Allah,
my word my brother, if you and I can understand the system of Allah, we're not going to hit the level of depression with whatever happens around the globe. Because the plan of Allah is perfect. It's just taking shape as he has ordained it.
A believer is never going to hit a low
He's only hitting a low because he doesn't know how the system of Allah works.
That's why he's dipping down.
Well, I will try to add a camera haha and I had cast beauty on your face. So whoever looked at you which is melted, so the beauty of a child, the beauty of an abbey, and then a lot consciously, I had focused beauty on you. Can you imagine what the beauty is like a child is just too sweet. It's just too innocent. It is so comical when you look at the challenge. Oh man, I just feel like hugging him is so sweet. So Pharaoh then picks him up for Takako.
has Anna, so academically you refer to the Islam Islamic Atiba that you picked him up, but ultimately, he is going to end up as your enemy because you're going to resist his mission. But then Allah says interferon wahama Juno de hamaca, no hottie in verily Pharaoh and Harmon and they armies were in error.
They picking up someone nurturing someone, molding someone who ultimately is going to topple them, but what can they do because Allah has made them do what he has decreed.
But then the scholars write that their biggest mistake because you're like categorically say they were in error. Their mistake was just not picking up Moosa. Their mistake was that they thought they could override a loss plan. This was their mistake. This was their mistake, that they can override, no, no, we can put measures in place we can block it off.
We can do this we can do that we can count. That's the mistake you made, that you're going to suppress something that Allah has decreed. And Allah has ordained and Allah has decided, and you're going to do something Otherwise, how dare you try and challenge what Allah has decreed.
So anyway, we were saying about this point here that the pagan Arab had this deviant practice and what was it? They had for months that they used to honor the Quran speaks about it for months that they used to honor and these were sacred months. And in those months, there's no fighting no battle, Your Honor, you respect you revere it. But if perchance, a nation has to get into battle with another nation, and it coincides with the sacred months, then the leader of a tribe will just stand up and say, folks, due to the urgent need of a battle, we've decided to now rotate the sequence of demands. So one of the sacred months is Muharram but we put in mojarra mono now we fast forward in
and we bring into Florida will bring Muharram later
law speaks about this in the Quran. in managing Hosea
vena cava Oh, hi, Luna. Who are you, Henry Mona
Lisa want to data ma ma ma, ma, ma, ma, ma ma ma. So unfortunately, today, when a person starts tampering with faith and adjusting faith, then in the end, there's no faith left. But coming back to my early sentiments, that a believer rises from every situation, and the occasion of
the Muslims suffered a serious setback, and it was quite challenging and apparent victory turned into a setback into somewhat of a defeat. So after the battle was over, we say we have a think tank we say we brainstorm. We say we critically analyze everything the Sahaba said down and Allah speaks about this in the Quran. And they started asking the question, Where did this apparent defeat come from? Not in objection, but in astonishment. Allah speaks about this in the Quran. Allah ma but Khan was como si baton tada sabaton myth llena
de PUE amin rindy and forsaken in Allah, Allah Galician in Cody, whoa, whoa. And that's the beauty of the Quran. The Universal nature of the Quran is so amazing that it could fit your situation as though it was revealed for you exclusively is like Allah is talking to you directly. So let me give you a verbatim translation. Why Lama Sabbath, Kumasi BAM and when you were afflicted by a trial,
but a sorbitol mithila. Previously you had inflicted double of that on your opponent
So the subtly hint of the double infliction which you had inflicted previously on your opponent, which Allah brings to discussion at the time of your setback, the scholars say release is a hint that when you going through a turbulent moment, don't view your turbulence in isolation, view it in the greater happening of things. Remember previously what you did remember previously how much today you can get up but remember what health Allah gave you for 50 years? Kids we're not going for a holiday this time but you know how many December's we've been out? We might not be doing this year, but we, I always say one is the passion that I want to do another hug and I want to do another
hombre and when is the passion each year that I want to make someone else do or how much?
One is the question that I want to make someone else do ombre right? This person came to us and passerini asked him that in naked hijab to walk up to me Phil Hodge, I have performed my father's Hajj and my mom has consented for me to do a hijab again. Would you consent? And are you okay with it? It said la de la Alameda De La Habra, la yameen Hi Jake, setting with your mom and having a meal with her. And making her smile for me will surpass the reward of an optional hij.
Sitting with your mum and having a meal with her and just cheering her up bringing joy to her. I was now in reunion three weeks ago. So I was invited by an institution. So they had assigned a student to make a decision for me or to serve me rather. So he was very diligent and he was serving me throughout the day. So prior to leaving the seminary, I called him and I made some plans for him. Allah bless you. He was from Algeria in Algeria. So I prayed for him Allah granting prosperity in his knowledge, etc. So the rector and the principal nudged me and he said chef Jazakallah for the two hours you made for this boy
and for his prosperity, but maybe you want to spare that draw and make draw for his mom, she's left the fold of Islam.
She's left the fold of Islam and it jolted me it jolted me. It jolted me because this is you know, I mentioned this, I was in Caribbean, and I was there for a conference or brother invited me. And then he said I want you to meet someone. So I said okay, but then the conference One day, the next day and busy and he said please, before you leave, you have to meet this brother. So I asked him what's the urgency if you don't mind? He said I was not a Muslim. He brought me into Islam. But sadly he's left Islam.
So the point I'm saying My brother is we need to have a firm grounding. There's nothing else that's going to rescue us today. Because the times are challenging, the times are daunting. The Temptations are strong. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said fitna sama imea batma Fitness that will blind you definitely will paralyze you, man Ashraf, Allah is referred to if curiosity just takes you to peep it will swallow you in. That's how the nature is you something pops up on your screen, curiosity probes you prize you to get in and next best thing you hooked and you're addicted. So anyway, Allah reminds us that when you're going through a difficulty, don't view that difficulty in isolation, but
a sub to myth later, today you're in Ohio, and better you'd inflict the double of that on your opponent. So at the time of your challenge, a believe of views with a holistic iron. Then Allah says call to another. You ask him, where did this come from? Where did the setback it was all happening? Where did it happen? Where did things change? Allah said, pulumi 90, unfussy calm, things changed because you changed.
Things changed because you changed. Like my marriage was good. It was happening. Suddenly now my partner wants to leave my business dips down. I'm having a fall out in this year. And you know human nature when you sit in soft, you kind of have the psychological comfort if this backfires, I've got this to cushion me. If this falls, I've got that to insulate me. If that doesn't materialize, I have debt to buffer me. But when things fall my brother it falls rapidly and systematically I know of a good friend of mine. And he grinds till today he wasn't a good wicked ally and given him everything and he was going good. And he phoned and he cried, and I said, What's the matter? He said,
Everything just started going down and I lost everything. And I'm asking myself tough questions. And there's only one thing that comes back is during my, my glory days. I didn't take time to spend with my mom. And my mom would often call me and I'm like, Yeah, okay, I'm busy. I have
end of the month and I'll come and I know as a mom she forgave me, but I know those hurts are coming to haunt me. Those hurts are coming to haunt me.
So Allah told the Sahaba pulumi nan de unfussy come look at your life. So that's my first message that I've been trying to drive and repeat Time is running out here. That a believer in every situation he finds his creator, he finds is what they say.
an optimistic individual is one who finds opportunity and in every difficulty, and a negative thinker, finds difficulty in every opportunity. a pessimist is such that when opportunity knocks at his door, he complains of the noise.
When opportunity knocks at his door, he complains of of the noise, like what's the noise that's either negative thinker is easy. You know that the sound of opportunity itself is bothering him, but a positive thinker, he bounces back from every situation. So Allah told the Sahaba that what happened to you in Ohio is because you turn things you don't understand this idea. And it will it will culminate my message. You turn things around, where you left your pose, or Allah pada sada como la hora de novo Taha Sona home Bay I delivered on what I promise you will move in victorious in the battle Atari the official term you lost courage what the NASDAQ term you disputed was a term you
were non compliant embody Morocco motto hipbone when you seen the booty men coming up, the dunya woman come Maria de la hora, some of your motives become became diluted, became diluted, so masakan unknown, then Allah diverted the victory. But this is the beauty. Leah Italia come when Allah diverted it, and you staggered and stumble. He didn't do this to punish you to test you.
He did this to test you. Well, aka uncom and that's the status of Sahaba I'm not angry with you at all, I have forgiven you completely. We're called the alpha and gamma. I cannot explain to you how much emphasis but now understand that what has happened to you is because of your own mistake, but that doesn't allow for you to lump that doesn't allow for you to drop now that oh, I made a mistake. No, no arise from you.
And how do you rise? See how the Quran says he says come
if you in pain today, then remember others also suffer pain just like you suffer. First thing so you're not the only one I'll come back to that incident of masala Salam if time permits insha Allah, Allah your mind might be running.
What till Can I Yamanaka will have been enough? I read in biannual Quran an amazing deduction, and these are the days in which we rotate victory. So someday it's for you someday it's against you the hadith of Bokhari when hiralal was summoned to Abu sufian and he asked the Luciferian Tell me about the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam Do you are you people victorious or are they victorious? It said Allah harboe baneasa nanodomains homeboy Anna Luna Mina. So it's one day in favors one day in favor of is. So the nmsa the reason why Allah rotates victory as well in this world. If victory was declared guaranteed for the Muslims in every campaign, then where's the test to emaan?
Then where's the test? If obedience meant perpetual prosperity than who won't embrace faith, but the whole challenge is that of trial. Now, but look at the beauty with tilaka yamano darwino happiness, Wali, Allah, Allah, Allah de la mano, but by your mistake, the battle became more intense and ferocious. And by virtue of that Allah expose those who are true believers. They face their submission, because you can be a hypocrite. As long as the tide is not strong against you. When the tide gets strong against you, then you have to say you know what, I'm not genuine. I'm sorry, man. Yeah, I'm sorry. I'm not I'm not a believer. I came I tried. I was playing the act, but now is
called my brother. Uh huh. Nice to know, honey so Blaney. As biocote goes longer gonna use Oh, blame me. Why? Because now it's too strong. And that's exactly what happened in 100. They dig in and dig in and dig in. And they tied bellies, they tied stones to their bellies and they came to complain to the profit of
Love the hunger and he just lifted his blessing God and it was two stones. And when the hunger became too much the monastics said no, no, this is too much now man. Why is that they know Federico may know nebia eoco Luna in Abu Tana wama here
Illa Fira Wow.
So now the hunger is severe the Sahaba diggin the Prophet of Allah comes to a boulder they can't penetrate the Boulder. He strikes the boulder a spark shoots out salamandre Yolanda says what's that spark? The Prophet of Allah said our italic a a sermon sermon. you seen it? He said, Yes, I seen it. He said, that's the palaces of Syria. That's the palaces of Persia.
So Sahaba said, Okay, okay, we accept it. We embrace it. There's hunger. There's no food. There's nothing edible. He's prophesizing the palaces of Syria falling at his feet. When the monitor cleaner does this add notice is now too much. This is now too much. You cannot hold it anymore.
So this is Solomon, we need to go home our homes are attended. Allah said it was not that the homes were attended. They just wanted to flee the battlefield. The hypocrisy could not be contained anymore. When you stand in on a fake leg, it caves in but when you stand in on a strong leg of a man it never gives in. May Allah give us a man. Allah never said Allah never said the believer won't be tested. He said because of a man. I'll hold him through the tests.
So you say but I'm being tested but that's that's what Allah said. He didn't say you know, he says I'm gonna hold you someone would you read the interviews of all those people who lost their family members? The non Muslim interviewers are like listen to this woman and the calmness in the voice know he's in a happier place. Hello, happier place. A believer with weak a man is finding it difficult to reconcile the strength a person who doesn't have a man How is she gonna make reconcile with it? How is she gonna understand this? Yeah. This is when Allah give sukoon to the heart. I often say when Allah give sukoon to the heart, the Sahaba were more happy in their poverty than we
are in our wealth. They were more content in their sickness than we are in our health. They slept better in the battlefield than we sleep in hotels. Allah says in the Quran, my brother that they slept in the battlefield.
Sleep in the battlefield, there's a dichotomy. It's a contradiction. It's it's opposite. Okay, sleep sleeping better. You got to interview and you
got the runs.
You got the runs. You got to interview tomorrow. Yeah.
Allah says while they were in the battlefield, I just gave them peace. And when Allah gives you peace, my brother in the world is baffled like I said, so Manzella is a member it may or may not know
Yakutia or if I mean come watco effect on the metronome and for sumio no Nabila sama, Angela Allah. ami, Amina Amina, because peace tranquility, yoga, as Abdullah said, the sword was in my hand the enemy came and I fell off to sleep.
This is when Allah gives peace. So when when there isn't Eman, then you can hold it you can play for a little while. You can play for a little while, when you stand in in taraweeh for the pleasure of Allah you can stand but when you stand in for this angle, and that angle is too long.
Now you can stand the man because more
Why? Because but when you're doing it for Allah, you know, I'm going to be rewarded. Then the longer the fires, the merrier. The Fast the more the throw, the more the pleasure. I met a brother on a long fasting day in Ireland. I said brother, how was your first he said was difficult, but I know this one's gonna do magic for me in front of Allah. I said my brother, you took my thirst away in one statement. You took my thirst away in one statement. He said I know this one's gonna do med. This is Faith. This is a man. You've been to law who levena Amano bill Poe live bt Phil donia. Often
by virtue of Eman, Allah says he's gonna keep the believer firm through all these challenges. It's gonna be tough. That's a real problem I'll attach to his tufano the Arabic proverb is the vessels only say
in the opposite direction of the wind you don't get the tail wind and the pocket of wind and the flight is just sailing no no that's how the world is if the wind is in the opposite so it's tough it's challenging but Allah says through virtue of a man is going to hold the believer through only mean his grave after a year means the grave as many of the mufa Syrian have expounded and then ultimately is going to get him into into Jana mela makers amongst them. So let's wrap up here with us and that incident of masala Salaam. So Allah said, em says, Come on what happened in in Africa to come and say, No, no, no, you know what, no, no, we're going to be going by because the faith was
not there. So they had to run. To the extent Allah said they are so one of the qualities of a Muna faith is is afraid. And one of the qualities of a believer he's not afraid.
So the Muna fake has the superficial impression. And this is from Quran my crying all my talks are crying on my dogs. We just don't read Quran we just don't connect ourselves to Quran. So the monastic the Quran says when you see him you'll be mesmerized by his appearance Wow. A Lake boy cake my boy
what either at home or at Boca Jessa Mohan ye Oppo notice ma la taveuni him Oh my word. If you look at him, you will be mesmerized by his appearance. If he speaks you will just be reverted back. Yes, sir Sabina que la se hace una la him. Every scream he jumps oops. Relax when you so strong. You so muscular. You so robust and everything. It was just the fly. Oh, okay. ish.
So when the armies left, too far left, the believers were out. The Quran says even after the enemy left the level of fear in a monofin
una casa Bella Mia Boo.
They said, no, no. They may be you know, they can come out. No, I cannot come out. This is when the heart is not clean and clear. This is when there's no conviction. This is when there's no belief. This is when it's superficial. This is when it's artificial. But when there's a man it's a man or a
yoga dolla, berguna Villa vs. Luna and Umberto Eco. And they really wish if the Muslim if the enemies have to launch another attack. I wish I can be in hiding in ambush. And I said they and you keep on informing me of the developments and I say camouflage. I don't come on this. I'm giving you a translation of the 21st verse 21st two sorry.
Yeah, what do they wish? Well, who and whom? berguna feel that they sit in in the village? Yes, una Amba eccomas. Can you own the movements and the developments?
So Allah says, em says, Come on, if you in pain, it has happened to others what will kill a Yama nada willowherb in and we turned victory up and down. Why? Because if every time a believer has victory was the test now when he Allah Allah who loving armano right? I mean, my time you know, so Allah literally uses an expression, so that Allah knows who brought him on. That's the literal expression. There's a literal translation. So this obviously creates the question, what is meant by Allah knows, because Allah knows everything. So the common explanation given is, the hoovering that Allah reveals he is knowledge at that time, Allah knows from before, like a teacher knew like you
know what the exam was the ritual, but I knew exactly who was going to get how much probably was out by five or 10 marks but I had an estimation of which student will perform at which level so Allah knows from before but the test and the trial brought to surface Alice knowledge, and yet I read another amazing, you know, exploration, when he lm Allahu la Vina amanu so that Allah knows is that sometimes when we speak to juniors, we speak on their level, even if we articulate. So a professional, articulate aristocratic proficient individual is speaking to the child is like, you want to eat my mom. I don't know if you guys use the term you're right for food. Right? So it's not
like you don't know but you're dropping down to the level of a child you talk in the language of a child. So occasionally, that's also one exploration given by the scholars, those who are skilled in the exegesis of the Quran that Allah uses that on our level because through the battle it brought to the fore those who are genuine and not in the empty Han eukroma Rajan Oh Johan, the lines are drawn the lines are drawn between brave and coward. The lines are drawn on the animal
levina armano Domine come Shahada, and as much as you made a mistake, and he turned the sequence of things around, but Allah crown some of you with martyrdom.
Now listen to this ayah My Word will love hula, you have a volley mean. And Allah does not like the oppressors. In biannual Koran, it's the return. What is the context of this ayah in the discussion of what
it means, don't view the victory of your enemy that Allah loves them, Allah still dislikes them. It was to discipline you that they were given a victory not because Allah is happy with them.
Did you hear that? My brother? My brother, did you hear that? One Laguna? Yo hypovolaemia. Allah does not like the evildoers the oppresses. So then Allah Why did they give victory? No, I don't like them. This was to discipline you not to not to acknowledge them.
So a believer finds in every situation, wherever you are my brother, find your Creator. If you found your Creator, you've made peace, what they say in order dounia kabaya who aku Allah kya panna milagai. Unlucky Baba who a cuckoo see Jaga panahon a mil ag. If you had a fallout with anyone and everyone, you can find amnesty By Allah, you had to follow up with your spouse, you had to follow up with your boss, you had to follow up with your siblings, you can find peace with the law. But if you had a fallout with Allah, nobody can give you peace. Nobody can give you amnesty. So as long as you winning with Allah, this one offended you that one. But if you're not winning with Allah, your act
between you and you're creating is not clean, then my brother that is the real failure. So I'll leave you with this last concluding remarks that I was talking about and the tale of satana Musa alayhis salam. And it also ties up with my sentiments. So when the mother of Musa was still put in the basket, put the basket in the river Nile and she did accordingly she obliged, then Allah told musala salaams mother, lotta hafi y la kozani don't fear don't grieve. Look at Quran. And this hurts me that we take out so much time to understand so many complex, intricate delicate things. But we don't take our time to understand Quran. Like why? Why have we kept ourselves so aloof? When the
answer is in the Quran?
Now, the scholars of the field raise a very pertinent question here that Allah told the mother of musar not to fear and grief. But fear and grief are not optional emotions.
You don't feel by choice. You don't grieve by choice. These are non voluntary emotions that overwhelm you. It's not like okay, right. I'm not going to be scared, right? I'm not going to grieve No, you're going to when the Prophet of Allah lost his son, and that's what the nmrc ruku can do in one line, like, you know, who can do it in one line, where therapy can take you through 10 sessions and cost you an arm and a leg, the first draw of the Prophet of Allah God to you. You go to a psychologist to a therapist, cost you so much money and whatever. But in the end, you come back to the very elementary teachings of the Prophet of Allah in the first line, he conveyed it to you. So
the Prophet of Allah is crying. Now said like, why are you crying? He said in Alina Tajima zone. alanna punto de la mejor. Baba Hera buena, are in NaVi Farah aka Ebrahim llama Zoo known, no human, no human, from the inception of this universe to its ultimate destruction can encapsulate everything that needed to be said at this critical moment of losing your son other than Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
He said the ideas that's the right of the child. The heart is gripped with intense grief. That's the obligation of that child in the line method macroalgal punakha zone, Alanna kulu in Lama Jacobi robina, but the demand of faith is we only after what our tongue that which allies please.
We're in now before Africa, Ibrahim lamassu noon, and now we brought him make no mistake. You've left a vacuum that will leave us in grieving mode for a long time.
All the emotions in one sentence at one time, it's the right of this child to cry. It's the right of this child for me to learn to grieve. But the limits right limit boundaries, restriction, my obligation my faith demands. I limit. I don't utter with my tongue anything but what which my ally is pleased
Do you know my brother?
The Prophet of Allah had seven children he buried six with his own hands.
The Prophet of Allah socialism had seven children. My heart cries like you don't know how many of the Muslims don't know this aspect of the CMR of our own beloved prophets awesome. So we've failed the mission because we not convinced on our own message we don't know somebody who says you know I'm selling this vacuum cleaner tell me is it for carpet on tile a I'm not too sure man. Tell me is this thing works with the battery or power am not too sure in my friend learn your article before you come in, sell it. Master what you want to convey. I want to stand as an ambassador, when I don't know the life of the greatest human. I chant the slogan, I boast his legacy. I scream his nobility
but I don't know he's live.
seven children Allah gave him six from Khadija one from Maria Timothy. He was only survived by Fatima. She was 29. Six months later, she passed away. He buried six with his own hands. And we don't have challenges. Like one child is excelling in school and the other one has been unfortunately guilty of taking drugs. And what a challenge for the parents and children don't realize you caught up now this Chinese Yeah, I have Excel you don't even show happiness. But what does this child know how the parents heart is torn up? What is this child know that while I want to
deal with happiness, I'm dealing with pain because your brother is somewhere roaming the streets.
And the Prophet of Allah tells earthman You are excused from better because my daughter Rokia is not well 125 kilometres north of Medina. And in better Allah gives them victory. And this victory coincides with the victory of the Romans against the Persians, which Allah spoke about in Surah, two room chef Yama,
Yama, Yama, you can see more.
So the Muslims had this allegiance to the people of the book.
The people of the book, this was fought in Syria somewhere. This is how visible Hydras are visibly Kathy repollet speaks about this in the Quran.
So the People of the Book were defeated by their opponents.
And when they were defeated by the opponents, that were the fire worshippers, the infidels, the polytheists of Makkah, they showed their allegiance to the fire worshippers, because they kind of had a sense of calmness in their faith. And the Muslims had the communists with their fellow Christians because they were people of book. So the day the Romans were defeated, the Mexicans stole the Sahaba our brothers defeated your brothers, they're, you people are next.
Allah speaks about this in the Quran, my brother, brother, brother, I gave a talk and a brother came to me I was in UK and he says, a chef, you make me feel guilty. I said, Thank you. I want you to feel guilty. Because guilty is going to stimulate action. If you're going to be complicit, nothing's going to happen. Nothing is going to happen. You You're guilty of infidelity, your wife is going to be silent. She's gonna throw a tantrum, you're going to appeaser you'll carry on with infidelity, she needs to throw a tantrum, then you're going to realize do or die make or break you want the marriage or you want your life. You want your fantasy or you want your life, your child Come on
drugs. No, no, no, forgive me last time I listen, you choose your house or you go on the street, it's your choice. You make a goal. You want that life Good luck. Go for it. You're a man of your own mind. You have your own thoughts Run, run as far as you want. But you want this house conform. This is what Allah says in the in the in the teachings of Islam.
The time that the Romans would defeat it
the same time Allah prophesized the victory who can predict the victory of the underdog of the defeat at the time of defeat other than prom?
You know what I'm talking man Hello? Somebody know what I'm talking to you by the show of hands sometimes guys like a bit of you know the so deep into reflection.
You lost at the time that you lost you've been annihilated. You've been overpowered. At that time. Allah says they're gonna rise and gonna win.
There's only poron can predict when it happened over karate Alanna went to the disbelievers and he said listen at that time baton was permissible.
Three camels or give me 10 camels in three years. The Romans will overpower your your friends and your allies. So he took the word bizarre on different means few, few can mean anything from three to nine. He took it on the literal the entry level.
And he said, Oh, Allah I went to them and I told them that in three years, the Romans are going to overpower the Persians and I told him as give me 10 camels, let me sell some said build your own. Build your own has the meaning of few it can mean three to nine. What he hasn't confirmed the duration. So allow it till nine years because that is the meaning of bizarre only. Wow, whoa.
You know, Interstellar Earth money. In Oklahoma, Ohio, a lake in the salata. tenha and in fact, Sha Verily, Salah prohibits immorality in the footnotes is written, if a person comes to the doctor and he says I'm taking the medication, but it's not helping. is going to tell you either you're not taking it in the right dosage or the right time.
You're not performing the correct Salah or in the correct time to eat the correct way. It has to have its results. It has to because Allah Sadie Are you taking it? No, that's your problem.

Whom so sudama own is divided into three verses of the caffeine and the remaining verses of the monopoly. And that's what I cry. It's bad enough that we don't look like
believers. But it gets worse when we look like one African kafar.
It's bad enough that I don't know the seed of Nabeel a Salam. But it gets worse when I know the biography of everyone but Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam it gets worse naj my young friend and you're talking about an A No no, no, I tell you when brother we just talking we don't take it personally. He doesn't give me royalties. Oh, you
doesn't pay our bills, man. Oh, no. I tell you, you know what, when he started his career, I can tell you to relax, Brother, don't get personal and possessive. And, you know, sensationalize the whole argument. It's bad enough that I don't know Muhammad SAW some but it only gets worse when I know everyone besides Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam It's bad enough that I don't look like a believer but it only gets worse that every three that Allah said amen Africa cafe I am body.

The consequences of denial in a way where we What was I saying your job?
And somebody helped me from where to where? Somebody quickly?
No, no, that was afterwards, man. Something before that. Come brothers now.
Yeah. Anyway, we'll wrap up on that note, and if I have a flashback of it, then I will
digress to that and come back. So to wrap up on the note of masala Salaam, that the question was the latter half of Pakistani How do you reconcile the prohibition of grief
and fear when these are non voluntary emotions. So Allah categorically tells the mother don't fear don't grieve? And the scholars have to see it as alma lavonne.
Right, I was telling you about the Romans Antolini of the Prophet sallallahu, wasallam.
You know, I was in Canada years ago, and then I gave a talk. And then this youngster he now he's grown up Mashallah. And he listens to my lectures a lot. So, he came out, so it comes to greet me. So the dad says, this, the chef men say greets me. So the father asked him, did you listen? He said, Yes. So he said that.
Tell me what you heard. I'm listening. He says, No, I'm still retrieving data.
I'm still retrieving data. So both father and we had a chuckle. I say, Yeah, well, that's the world today, man.
I'm still retrieving data.
So the Prophet of Allah sallallahu wasallam then told Abubakar, go back to them, and tell them make it nine years and tell them 100 camels love Aqua. So it makes it nine years and says 100 camels and exactly in seven years. Allah turns the tide and the Romans overpower the Persians. I was saying that you go through a moment.
In our life, different emotions and we're talking about the Prophet of Allah lost all his children.
The day of whether was a double victory for the believers, Allah brought the victory. So the cafardo the prophets, Allah Islam in the Muslims as the Persians defeated your brothers, they will defeat you came the day of whether the Muslims were victorious over the disbelievers and the Romans were victorious over the Persians. So double joy Allah brought
me known happiness Raila young so Romania.
Mo y de la la la la hora de
la says, I will never go against my promise. If I told you I will do it. It's late for you because you wanted the time before but it's not late for me because this was the right time. You can't stand outside and face in anxiety. Amen. You know, people are not punctual at the time. Okay, brother, what's he know? He said he's gonna fetch me nine o'clock. Relax. It's 20 past eight.
How can you be in rage mode when the time hasn't come? So you've arrived early, you paste in anxiously but the time so Allah has the time. Now if I want to bring that time forward and I become anxious then I'm inflicting myself because Allah has promised but he wasn't given a time.
Allah has given a time and he knows his time. So the Prophet of Allah is returning from bother. He told earthman you stay behind and look after rota young, double joy of butter and the defeat of the Persians at the hands of the Romans. And as he say the northmen says, I dusted my hands from burying my spouse and the daughter of Nabeel Islam Rukia. And I looked up in a horseman came and he said Abu Sharia or smart glad tidings off man, we were victorious in butter. Can you imagine the contradicting emotions of allez nebby being the Nabhi of Allah and this joy of better and that time this is live this is live dealing with brother at that moment and only to enter Medina to know his
daughter roti has buried already.
So I said, I always say when the Prophet of Allah returned from Medina what is mama Amina
narration suggests they went to visit the grave of de la authentic narration say Abdullah passed away at the age of 18,000. Father 18 again, you really didn't know that. My brother What are you reading? What are you reading? Ask yourself 40 years 50 years, leave everything leave all the other arguments. 18 years, some say 20 Some say 25 they went to visit the grave. They come in back. Nobody's awesome. Amina rhodiola 9am Andrea la Miranda.
Ayman was the slave governor. He says his father then became the slave girl of his mother at a place called abattoir in the dead center between Makkah and Medina. Allah decrees the death of Amina battilana
I would think you would think maybe just get back to Makkah. just settle the little boy in, fit him into his environment. Let him find his surroundings. He's six years of age. The only shelter is his mum. But we look around is nothing but desert. There's just rough terrain. There's just sweltering blistering heat, the little boy who's going to shape the world.
Was there not allowed message that this is how life is that is why I mentioned this year. I was in Albania. I wrapped up my tour. They said we want to visit one more institution and then you leave. So they took me to an orphanage. So I entered the orphanage. It was a long day I was tired. We were on the run. We were distributing aid with lm dot and then they were young boys and girls. And lm dad had opened up an institution there. It was in a place called elbasan. With pre communism, this was known as the Medina of Albania, the Medina of Albania. So the kids stood up one child 13 years old in her broken language. She said Can I say something? I said yes. She said I four years old, I'm

And I have found myself in these situations in many a times where the victims condition is a greater inspiration than my words can possibly be. What do I say to this girl? These were exactly, but they insist. And I look in my heart and through the prayers of my mom. I asked a lot to inspire me to say something to say something. And Allah puts the ayah in my heart and I look to this girl and around me is only

The prophet SAW some then went to the grave of Rokia. And then he cried, imagine these two emotions at one time. You say God exams and as a wedding in the family, like really?
