hamdu lillahi wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah. While early he was happy he woman Werner said Mr. Deacon, what happened to liking you or a guy, two brothers sisters in Islam, a lot of how it's Anna reminds us in the Quran, what we should do at times of calamities, he should handle without it says For those

00:00:20--> 00:00:21

who met sooner

00:00:23--> 00:00:52

while they're keen cos kulu, who was a another who shaped nanomechanical yamano. In this ayah, Allah Subhana Allah says, If only when our calamity came to them, they took us around that is that they humbled themselves that they turned to a lot of hands either in obedience and worship, what I can concept kulu with their hearts became hard, was the you know, the homeless shavon Oh, my candle. Yeah, I'm alone and she upon me what they were doing appear to be good to them.

00:00:54--> 00:01:43

The great manifested cook to the web, they learn how to be romulo data. He says that in this if there is a divine rebuke that is that allows fantana is rebuking them for abandoning supplication they abandoned do I when the calamity came to them. And that is because their hearts were hard. The the soft heart, the one that is receptive to a loss of hands on His revelation, the one that is empathetic and sympathetic, the one that recognizes that when these calamities come, they are a test from a loss of hands added to us, and that these tests bring out the best in us if we endure them with patients that are lost her data does not test any soul with a burden greater than it can bear.

00:01:43--> 00:02:32

And we really believe this. And if we put our trust in a loss of data, we will make it through this calamity. Bismillah. He's added. The important point here to note is that Eliza Joe is encouraging us to do. Many are to make do when calamity befalls. And therefore during the times of calamities and suffering such as we're going through right now with the covid 19 pandemic that has gripped the world, it's even more important that we turn to a loss of Hamlet's Allah at this time and ask him for his relief and his protection. There are many do eyes that we can make, specifically, protection from illnesses or more generally, to be protected from any harm and to remove the harm that has

00:02:32--> 00:02:37

befallen. And I'm sure that many of you have seen, you know, lists of blue eyes going around.

00:02:39--> 00:03:22

And this is good. I'm delighted that people are thinking about the importance of making sure at this particular time, however, many of those lists are simply that they're lists. And a lot of us don't really know what these do is mean. And it is important to understand the meaning of what we're calling upon illustrations out of for as, as many of the scholars say, and do I see that see that moment, that the eye is the weapon of the believer, when I can see law, the body, the weapon is only effective, as effective as the one who is using it. So if we're making these lines, but we really don't understand them, then they're not going to be as effective as they could be if we actually

00:03:22--> 00:03:33

know what we're asking the last hands out of four. This is very important. So that as we're learning these two eyes that we learned the meaning of these two eyes, and today, what I'd like to do is go back to the beginning.

00:03:34--> 00:03:40

What I mean by going back to the beginning, is that I want us to memorize a doula

00:03:42--> 00:04:11

that is all encompassing and do I that will help us to make more do I. And that is because simply because I memorize it, or I know the meaning of it, or have the willpower to make this it doesn't mean that I'm actually going to make it the only time I'm really going to supplicate to a loss of hands out and call upon him is if he aids me to do so. And this is basically what we find in the statement of loss fantastic.

00:04:12--> 00:04:24

We're gonna stain every time we recite sword, it's unfair to our Lord is you alone that we worship and from you alone we seek assistance, that is that we seek assistance from Allah Subhana Allah in worshiping Him and this is

00:04:25--> 00:04:34

you know, similar to what we say when the event is being called when the moleben says hyouta Salah hi alfalah we don't repeat after we say that.

00:04:36--> 00:05:00

There is no movement, there is no power there is no mic except with Allah subhana wa tada I don't have the ability to answer that call to prayer to come to success. And less allows parents Allah aids me in doing so. So as we memorize these two eyes, and we know them we know that I'm supposed to say this in the morning or this do i upon leaving the house and so forth. We're only going to do

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

If Allah subhanaw taala aids us in doing so, and this is what I mean when I say going back to the beginning so I want us to memorize it Do I today that we should be saying in every salon and every single salon from now and so the day that allows for parents Allah calls us back. We should be saying this do I? Do I? That the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught more eyes when he took him by the shoulder by them and gentlemen, on the Allahu China and when he took him by the shoulder and he said in the little hip book, yeah, more or more I, I truly love you. So he goes on to say to live together Tiger hanafy do really poorly Salatin to cool but at the end, we do really quickly

00:05:44--> 00:06:26

solides into cool Allahumma any other replica will should rica will host neatly by the tick, he says so don't leave off saying at the end of every salaat and in some of the narrations fee coup de Sala in every salon meaning and what the scholars have deduced from this is that this do it is better to say before the test lien as opposed to after the test lien. So before the test lean, you say this do I owe a lot aid me Help me assist me in three things viktiga was shook rica or hostname editing, remembering you,

00:06:27--> 00:07:12

thanking you and worshiping you in the best manner possible. Now, this is a great guy and we understand these words. But I do want to go through these three points in the lines just so that we can get a quick understanding of what it is that we're actually asking Allah Subhana Allah for So again, we're gonna say this to iron every seller and not just the foreign seller, you're gonna say it in your reply to you as soon as you're gonna say it if you you know pray too high you're gonna say if you pray so lots of witches on this do It is to be made and every single seller before the test leave inshallah Tada. Okay, so the prophesy Sonam is instructing us to ask a law to aid us and

00:07:12--> 00:07:54

that is because again, if Allah Subhana Allah does not help us, it's not going to happen. aid us in doing eight us to do what number one fee Nikica and remembering you and addicted has two different meanings. One is the opposite of El hoffler, heedlessness or neglect. And this is the dictator of the heart. That is that we remember a loss of hands either inside of ourselves that we remember his magnificent subpanel. It's out of his generosity, His mercy, that we are conscious and cognizant of a loss of humans added all the time that we don't forget him. So this is the decline of the heart. The second type of decay, it is the decay of the tongue and this is the opposite of silence. So we

00:07:54--> 00:08:33

are remembering a loss of hands either with our tongues and the best of that decay is the recitation of the Quran. And then there are the statements that are most beloved to Allah Subhana Allah Subhana Allah and hungry Lola Allahu Akbar sending Salaam Salaam upon the messengers of light it was on a meeting do I just calling upon a lost friends as part of a decline in the general sense? So we're asking the Lord to help us indicative we're asking Allah Subhana Allah to help us not forget him, and also to mention him with our tongues. subhanho wa Taala. And this is the best of our actions tell you. The second thing, part two, the second thing they were asking for is a sugar. We're asking

00:08:33--> 00:09:13

last mentality to help us to show our gratitude to him what may be coming emanating from Allah, every Nima every favor that you have is from Allah and those favors may be material favors or they may be spiritual favors. I need the fact that Allah Subhana Allah has blessed you to pray five times a day that you remember Allah subhana wa tada that allies with john has put in you the desire to make homodyne to make hydrogen all of these other, you know, to be a person who is concerned about their piety and sincerity. These are blessings from Allah Subhana Allah that deserve to be thanked, as well as the other material blessings that we often think of like having a reliable vehicle and a

00:09:13--> 00:09:50

spacious home and, and in a patient, spouse and beautiful children and so forth. The fact that last minutes Allah has blessed us with sight that he's blessed us with hearing all of these are blessings from Allah subhanho wa Taala that deserve to be thanked, that thanks starts in the heart by recognizing those favors. It manifests itself on the tongue that is when we speak about them, we praise Allah Subhana Allah for them, and it manifests itself on the limbs as well. That is that we don't use these blessings in a manner that is displeasing to Allah Subhana Allah, rather all of those blessings that we have, we use them in a manner that shows that we appreciate this favor from

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

a loss fans and we use them in a manner we use them to increase in our obedience to a loss of Hannah Montana. So this is all part of sugar. As we asked, a loss of Hannah was added

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

for hosting a better, we asked him to aid us to worship Him in the best possible manner. There are two main elements here. Number one is that all of that worship be sincere, for a loss of Hannah was added that they'll be absolutely hopeless, that we don't turn to anyone else, that we're not doing this form of a battle because we want people to notice it, because we went there thanks, because or any of those things. But we do it sincerely for a loss of handouts and we worship Allah azza wa jal in public.

00:10:29--> 00:11:09

In a manner we worship a loss of hands out in public in a manner that we would do so in private, we're not you know, showing off we're not being ostentatious, we're not looking for anything other than the reward of a loss of habitat. And the second part is that we do that worship in a manner that complies to the teachings of our Prophet alayhi salatu was sent in if it is done for other than Allah Subhana Allah is not personally bad, it is not good worship. And if it is done in a manner that is not sanctioned by our Deen then it is also not good worship so we're asking the loss of habitat for these three things. Allahumma and me Allah the clicker will show clicker was named

00:11:09--> 00:11:18

editing Allah Amy and remembering you thinking you and worshiping you properly was some Allah who was selling robotic and then me, you know, Mohammed
