Has he been NASA utra aku aku Amana whom la afternoon? Do the people think that they will be left to say we believe and they will not be tried that same? Is it enough to say la ilaha illa Allah and then there will be no test No way. This life is a test. Every person is tested. Min mushrik cafe Muslim man woman child old me
Everyone is tested sadra the low aren't who said, I asked the Prophet sallallahu Sallam he rasulillah, who is tested most severely. He said the prophets than the righteous, then the next best, a man is tested, according to the level of his faith. If his Dean is firm, his test is increased. And if his faith is weak, then his test is lightened,
whose test is increased and multiplied and made difficult with the passage of time, the one whose faith is firm, just look at the story of use of earnings in his life just got more and more difficult with every passing day. And then eventually, relief came. This is the way of Allah, He tests his beloved servants, he tests and sees who was really true, and people also know who they really are.
But we have certainly tried those before them, and Allah who will surely make evident those who are truthful, and He will surely make evident the liars. Allah already knows who is truthful in his claim of faith, and who is not. But he tests people still, to see that who is truthful and who is not. Why, because that is His justice. He doesn't judge people based on his knowledge alone, he tests them so that their true worth is revealed. And in that process, people also become aware of themselves, they also get to improve impassibility nyama, Luna sejati as mucuna or do those who do evil deeds think that they can outrun us evil is what they judge, they think we cannot catch them,
we cannot punish them. That is an evil decision. You see, each person is tested in this life, but tests are for a reason. Like we learned earlier, that Allah tests a person according to the level of his faith. And test is not just in the form of hardship, it is in the form of pain, it is in the form of loss, it is in the form of gain also, it is in the form of blessings also. But what we really take as a test is hardship. Right? When we are suffering, we think that that is a test. And sometimes remember that these difficulties are also because of our own sense, like over here, those who do evil do they think that they will get ahead of us? No, they think evil they will be put to
trial in this life, they will be put to difficulty in this life. Also, the prophets of Allah sent him said there is no sin more fit to have punishment, given by Allah, for its perpetrator in advance in this world, along with what he stores up for him in the next world than the sin of oppression and severing the ties of relationships, meaning these sins, they bring punishment in this life also, once there was a drought, there was no rain for a very long time and remoto below or knew he was a halifa at that time, so he asked our best rather low arnoud to make the Salah is to stop. So our best ludlowe on who he prayed along my inner who that Oh Allah Indeed, the Bella the trial. It
doesn't come except because of a sin.
And the trial is not removed except by Toba repentance. So we repent to you We beg your forgiveness and remove this track, you remove this trial from us. You see, difficulties are a part of life. The question is what we are going through? Is it a punishment of our sins? This is the question or is it something that is meant to bring us closer to Allah? Remember, tests and trials they either bring us closer to Allah or they distance us from Allah. If what we are going through is bringing us closer to Allah. Then remember, it was a test.
But if it has distanced us from Allah, then remember it was a punishment of our own sins. So anything when it causes us to feel far from Allah, then remember this was the result of our own sense. What we need to do over there is make Toba seek forgiveness from Allah. Whoever should hope for the meeting with Allah. Indeed, the term decreed by Allah is coming piano is not far that is closer than the shoelace on a person's foot. And he is the hearing and the knowing. So don't be impatient. This test is temporary. Just watch what you say and you do because you are under him. Woman Jennifer in Nevada hidden enough to see and whoever strives only strives for the benefit of
himself. So strive through your tests, reaching out to Allah, begging him imploring Him
Giving sadaqa improving yourself. Indeed Allah is free from need of the world. So if you lose yourself, then you lose. And if the test brings you closer to Allah, then you will gain. And those who believe and do righteous deeds, we will surely remove from them their misdeeds, and will surely reward them according to the best of what they used to do. And we have enjoined upon men, goodness to parents, but if they endeavor to make you associate with me, that of which you have no knowledge, then do not obey them, because there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator, to me is your return. And I will inform you about what you use to do, because this is also a very
difficult test, that our laws order is different. And what the parents are telling us to do is completely different, right? Or Allah has ordered us to do something and the husband is telling us to do something completely different. Now in that situation, what do you do? It's a big test. So we need to remember that this test also should draw us closer to Allah. Right? How will that happen? That there is no obedience to the creation in disobedience to the Creator. ask Allah for help. And of the people are some who say, and those who believe in do righteous deeds, we will surely admit them among the righteous into paradise. And other people are some who say we believe in Allah. But
when one of them is harmed for the cause of Allah, they consider the trial of the people as if it were the punishment of Allah. They take it as punishment. And so they stop the good that they were doing. But a victory comes from your Lord, they say, indeed, we were with you, meaning they want the benefits. But when they're suffering, the way of Allah, they think of it as punishment is not allow most knowing of what is within the breasts of all creatures. Allah knows who is truly a believer and who is not. We cannot trick Allah. And Allah will surely make evident those who believe, and He will surely make evident the hypocrites, this is so frightening. Allah will reveal the true state of
people. And those who disbelieve, say to those who believe follow our way, and we will carry your sins, but they will not carry anything of their sins. Indeed, they're liars. Today, if anyone says, Do this for me, I'll take the burden of the sin. Remember, they're lying, because on the Day of Judgment, they'll never free you of your burden of sin. But they will surely carry their own burdens, who those who lead others astray, and also the burdens along with their burdens of who of those whom they lead astray, meaning they will carry double burden who those who lead other people ministry for their own sin and the sin that was committed because of them, and they will surely be
questioned on the Day of Resurrection, about what they used to invent. And we certainly sent new to his people and he remained among them 1000 years minus 50. This is in the Quran, so there is no doubt about it. New Halley's Salah remained in his people for 1000 years minus 50 950 years, and the floods sees them while they were wrongdoers, but we saved him and the companions of the ship, and we made it a sign for the worlds and we sent Ibrahim when he sent to his people worship Allah and fear him that is best for you if you should know you only worship besides Allah idols and you produce a falsehood meaning these idols it's all lies. Indeed, those who worship besides Allah, do not possess
for you the power of provision. So seek from Allah provision and worship Him and be grateful to him, to Him you will be returned, he gave it to you, so be grateful to him. And if you people deny the message already nations before you have been already nations before you have denied and there is not upon the messenger except the duty of clear notification. Again, the message the truth cannot be forced on people you cannot force feed faith, have they not considered how Allah begins creation and then repeats it indeed that for Allah is easy. say oh Prophet, traveled through the land and observe how we began creation, then Allah will produce the final creation. Indeed, Allah over all things is
competent. He punishes whom He wills and has mercy upon whom He wills and to whom you will be returned, meaning Allah has the absolute ultimate authority. How can you run away from him when you cannot run away from him? Don't live your life, avoiding him ignoring him, and you will not cause failure to Allah upon the earth or in the heaven and you have not other than Allah, any protector, any helper and the ones who disbelieve in the signs of Allah and the meeting with him. Those have despaired of My Mercy, and they will have a painful punishment. Now back to a little humor Listen, um, story. Allah says the answer of Abraham's people was not but that they said kill him or burn
him. such clear proofs and what was the response violence, but Allah saved him from the fire
are indeed in that are Signs for people who believe. What lesson do we learn from this? When you believe in Allah when you obey Allah you are tested. Don't take that as a punishment from Allah. That is just a test to reveal the true state of your faith. You remain firm. Yes, it will be difficult, but Allah will ultimately protect you. And Ibrahim said, You have only taken other than Allah idols as a bond of affection among you in worldly life, meaning your idols, they're just a means of bringing you together. Because your lives revolve around this idolatry. These idols are the center of your life, your social lives revolve around them.
The thing is that whatever is important to a person,
then his life revolved around that. And what happens is that through that he meets other people also.
And when he meets them, he knows them through what, what is the connection? What is the connection between him and people? What is it that's bringing people together? It's what they give priority to, isn't it? So he said, What is bringing you all together is what idolatry. This is why you are friends with each other. This is why you have all these festivals, and this is how you're making money. And this is what brings you happiness, right?
Now the thing is, what we need to check is, what is the basis of my relationships of my friendships? What is it that became the cause of me and my loved ones coming together? What brought me close to the people that I am close to? Why is it that I love them, if it's for anything other than Allah, other than the religion of Allah, then remember that relationship will be temporary, it will be temporary, or it will not be a beautiful relationship. What will happen is that as those causes will come to an end, that relationship will also come to an end.
And he said, then on the Day of Resurrection, you will deny one another and curse one another. Why? Because you did wrong together. So if people come together for a cause other than Allah, and because of that they cooperate with one another insane in aggression, then this friendship will turn into enmity, love will turn into hatred, and your refuge will be the fire and you will not have any helpers. And Luther believed in him, Abraham and his son and said, Indeed, I will immigrate to the service of my Lord, I'm going, I'm going to my Lord, indeed, he is the Exalted in Might the wise, and we gave to him his heart and our cube and placed in his descendants Prophethood in Scripture,
and we gave him his reward in this world. And indeed, he is in the hereafter among the righteous and mentioned Lord when he said to his people, indeed, who commit such immorality as no one has proceeded you with, from among the world's, indeed, you approach men and obstruct the road, because they were also heimer robbers and you commit in your meetings every evil meaning you openly commit lewd acts, and the answer of his people was not but that they said bring us the punishment if you should be of the truthful color have been Sonia little calm of city and he said, Oh, my Lord, support me against the corrupting people. And when our messengers came to Ibrahim with the good
tidings with good news of the birth of his son, they said, Indeed, we will destroy the people of that loot city. Indeed, its people have been wrongdoers, Ibrahim alayhis, salaam, he argued for them he said indeed within it as a loop, they said we are more knowing of who is within it, we will surely say of him and his family except his wife, she is to be of those who remain behind. This is again very frightening because whenever not artists and I'm story is mentioned, his wife is also mentioned, right? Because if we ourselves are not honest to Allah than our relationships here, they will not matter. And when our messengers came to Lu, he was distressed for them and felt for them
great discomfort. They said Fear not nor grieve, indeed, we will save you and your family except your wife, she used to be of those who remain behind. Indeed we will bring down to the people of the city punishment from the sky, because they have been defiantly disobedient. And We have certainly left of it aside as clear evidence for people who use reason and doom at the end. We sent their brother Shuaib and he said, Oh, my people worship Allah and expect the last day and do not commit abuse on the earth spreading corruption, but they denied him. So the earthquake sees them and they became within their homes corpses fallen prone, and we destroyed the mood and it has become clear to
you from the ruined dwellings and triathalon had made pleasing to them their deeds was a yen Allahumma, Shay panaroma home and he averted them from the path and they were endowed with perception. What can almost upsetting. It wasn't
These people were blind. They didn't have reason. No, they have been endowed with perception. But shavon misled them. Aruna, we fit our own Oklahoma, and we destroyed our own fit our own and Harmon and Moosa had already come to them with clear evidences, and they were arrogant in the land, but they were not out runners of our punishment. What's the lesson here? One Nation after the other LSS each, we seized for his sin. And among them were those upon whom we sent a storm of stones. And among them were those who were seized by the blast from the sky. And among them are those whom we cause the earth to swallow. And among them were those whom we drowned, and Allah would not have
wronged them, but it was they who were wronging themselves. So whoever rejected was caused. So if we do the same, then how can we escape? So what is the lesson here? Any wrong that is done, do towba from it once a person realizes method Oh, Latina woman do Neela Hey, Olivia. kamasan Kabuto, that beta. The example of those who take allies other than Allah is like that of a spider who takes a home. And indeed the weakest of homes is the home of the spider if they only knew anyone who is worshipped besides Allah, anyone who is relied upon besides Allah. Then the example of this person, the person who's doing Schick is like a person who's falling and he's holding on to he's trying to
hold on to a spider's web for support. Can he get any support? No way. This is total loss. Indeed, Allah knows whatever thing they call upon other than Him, and He is the Exalted in Might the wise, what they call em soluna brivo herlin. And these examples we present to the people, but none will understand them except those of knowledge. So to understand the examples in the Quran, what is necessary knowledge, Allah created the heavens and the earth in truth, indeed, and that is a sign for the believers. So this entire universe is a testament to Allah's existence. And the condition is that a person really he should be seeking the truth, and he will find the truth. So Chronicle long
