Morning ecomo Rahmatullahi wa barakato

00:00:50--> 00:01:23

Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim wa Salatu was Salam Ronaldo. sottile Kareem rubbish. Rahi sorry were silly emri wash Lola rock that Emily Sani of Cabo Cali, Allah Houma and the economy was sadly sunny was roots akimoto Colby Armenia roble alameen inshallah, we will continue with sudo RM Ron and today we will begin from verse number 142. We were learning about the verses in which Allah subhanaw taala mentions,

00:01:24--> 00:02:03

mentioned some important lessons that we all can take from, from the incident of from the Battle of boyhood, and the Battle of overheard was a very difficult time for the companions. And every time that we think about or we learn about, we discussed the details of that battle. And he This is something that truly grieves us and makes us sad. But through these verses, we are taught so many important lessons that teach us how to deal with loss and also how to deal with you know, personal failures or or you could said

00:02:04--> 00:02:55

not only failures, but disappointments. So, our religion doesn't just teach us you know, how to celebrate or how to be confident, but it also teaches us how to deal with the difficulties that we face in our lives. So inshallah we will continue from verse number 142, where Allah subhanaw taala says, I'm huseby tomb and tada Hello, Jana, or do you think that you will enter paradise? Well, I'm iarla Milla who ladina jaha do men come, while Allah has not yet made evident those of you who fight or strive in His cause? Why are the most submarine and made evident those who are steadfast meaning it is through trials, it is through putting you in difficult situations that your reality is

00:02:55--> 00:03:44

exposed. And even though Allah subhanaw taala already knows who or what a person is, what is within a person, but Allah subhanaw taala only gives recompense to people based on their actions. So trials expose our realities. So it is mentioned over here that do you think you will enter Jannah just like that, no, that's not going to happen. Allah will test you. And through testing, you almost panel title will reveal those of you who will who truly strive in the cause of Allah, those of you who are truly patient and those who are not. And then it is said, What are the quantum terminal motorman. cubberly until Oh, who forgot the RA a to mu untung tanzu rune. And you had certainly wished for

00:03:44--> 00:04:28

martyrdom before you encountered it. And you have now seen it before you while you were looking on. So you see in the Battle of budder remember that the Battle of button was, you know, completely unexpected. And we learned that very few companions participated in that 300 companions and, and those who were martyred in that battle, you know, earned a position near Allah subhanaw taala, which was very, very great. So the companions who had not been able to participate in the Battle of whether any they would wish for an opportunity where they could also strive in the cause of Allah, where they could also you know, make sacrifices in the cause of Allah. And some were even passionate

00:04:28--> 00:05:00

about sacrificing their life in the way of Allah. So now that they got the opportunity, at the Battle of God, it is said that this is exactly what you were wishing for. And now you have encountered it. Now you have seen it while you were looking on and you have seen that this is not something easy. This is something that requires a great deal of courage and sacrifice. Now when it comes to, you see it is mentioned over here while awkward control term unknown and motor you used to wish

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

For death you used to wish for martyred of death as in death in the way of Allah subhanaw taala. Now, the Prophet sallallahu earlier said him said that do not wish to encounter the enemy, and you should not be hoping and wishing for that time when you can fight the enemy, no, you should not be wishing for that rather you should ask Allah subhanaw taala for wellbeing, ask Allah subhanaw taala for safety for protection. However, if you do encounter the enemy, then observe patients and you should know that Paradise is under the shade of sorts. And from this we can learn that a person should not ask for trials and difficulties that you know i wish i also you know, get really sick so

00:05:42--> 00:06:31

that I can be patient and I can you know die in that sickness, no, we should ask Allah subhanaw taala for safety for well being, we should not be asking or wishing for trials and difficulties. However, if a trial is destined for us, and if it does come our way, then what should we do as response we should be patient and then it is mentioned one or more Hamadan in law school, and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is not but a messenger, by the Hello admin probably hear rustle, other messengers have passed on before him. You see, there was a rumor that's spread in the in the field of Ohio, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam had been killed. And when that

00:06:31--> 00:07:18

news spread, when that rumor spread, a lot of the companions felt weak in heart, and they felt like there was no point in doing anything now. Now remember that one Haditha? mobileread when he you know, gathered some people, some of his men, and he went and, you know, went over that small hill that was now exposed because the people the archers, who had been appointed over there left their positions. When he went over that hill, and he attacked the Muslims. The Muslims were completely caught off guard. And when he went from there, he actually cut through the middle of the Muslim army. And so what happened now is that each that now the Muslim army was divided into two, because

00:07:18--> 00:07:59

now all of a sudden in the middle holida mobileread and his men work, and each side of the Muslims was basically trapped. And you can you can imagine there was a chaos. Now when Khalid Khalid mobileread was approaching the Prophet salallahu. Urdu Selim saw him coming, and he actually called the companions, he began warning them that la vida de la come towards me, oh servants of Allah, come here, let's regroup Let's gather together and let us fight back. And when the Prophet sallallahu earlier said, I did that when he called them he actually put his own life at risk. Why because now the enemy would know exactly where the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said was located. So some people from

00:07:59--> 00:08:39

the enemy actually went directly towards the Prophet sallallahu earlier the sentiment charged at him. And the Prophet sallallahu early Sunnah was wounded, and several companions defended him, they were killed in defending the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam had to take shelter in the crevice of the mountain. So So when the Prophet salallahu earnings and and could not be seen in the battlefield, we also learned that shape Han actually called out that Muhammad Sallallahu arias sort of has been killed. Also, most women are made on the illawarra and who he was killed at this time. And he was actually wearing a shawl that the Prophet sallallahu

00:08:39--> 00:09:23

earlier Salaam had given him. So the people thought that it was actually the Prophet sallallahu earlier said them had been killed. So when this rumor spread, you know, the Muslims, some Muslims felt very weak in their heart and they thought there is no point now in carrying on. So Allah subhanaw taala revealed this idea that woman will Hamadan, Illa soul, that the reality of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is that he's only a messenger, he's not God, he's not the one whom we worship. It is Allah subhanaw taala whom we worship, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was only sent he was era solar a solar zoo, someone who conveys a rissalah someone who has been sent

00:09:23--> 00:09:59

with a message to convey that is the role of the Prophet sallallahu or to send them so he did his job, he conveyed the message of Hello admin copy Russell, and many messengers have passed before him, meaning so many prophets so many messengers came before him, they conveyed their message that they were entrusted with and then they left the world that were not to live. They were not to remain in this world forever. efa a matter so if you was to die out patella or be killed in collab to Marla or kabhi con would

00:10:00--> 00:10:44

You turn back on your heels to unbelief. So here are the people who became weak are being chastised, they're being reprimanded. That Why did you give up? Or rather, why did you feel weak over there? Why did you think that there was no point in carrying on? Because isn't the prophets of Allah who earlier said themselves supposed to die anyway, after a matter of Portilla and matter, and he died of, you know, some natural cause of patina or killed because of, you know, some person killing him? If this were to happen, would you turn back to your heat? Would you turn back to your previous ways? Would you leave a slum? Would you leave the worship of Allah would you leave striving in the cause

00:10:44--> 00:11:33

of Allah, if you were to do that, then you are only causing loss to yourselves. So remember, the prophethood of a prophet does not end with his death, it actually continues, so people are supposed to believe in Him and follow Him even after the Prophet has departed the world. When I am kalibata rpv following your daughter, Allah has Shay and he who turns back on his heels will never harm Allah at all, once I edges Illa who shacket in but Allah will reward the Grateful so the person who leaves Islam because the Prophet sallallahu lucidum is no longer there. Such a person is only harming himself, he's not harming Allah at all. But those who remain committed then such grateful people,

00:11:33--> 00:12:17

Allah subhanaw taala will reward them what's a zillo Shakir in. So who are shaqiri Who are those who are grateful, these are people who are grateful to Allah subhanaw taala and so they continue to worship Allah subhanaw taala regardless of the circumstances that they're in, you see, our life is such that our situation our circumstances keep changing. At times, we are in the company of people who are a source of strength for us, who are a source of encouragement for us, you know, they are friendly with us, they are, you know, constantly encouraging us helping us to be good, to be better, they're there to defend us to protect us, to provide for us etc. And these could be family, you

00:12:17--> 00:13:09

know, or friends or you know, co workers, your you know, people who are award who are a source of strength for you. But then no human is meant to live forever in this world. So, if these people are to leave and and it happens, people move away, or we have to move away, or, you know, people, their life has come to an end. If our circumstances are to change, and remember they will change. It doesn't mean that we stop worshipping Allah subhanaw taala a shacket a grateful person is the one who remembers that whatever they have is from Allah, not from people. A shacket is a person who remembers that even good people in my life are actually a gift from Allah. And gifts in this life

00:13:09--> 00:13:55

are meant to be temporary. They're not meant to stay with us forever. So shagreen are those who remain committed to Allah subhanaw taala who remained firm in in the worship of Allah subhanaw taala in all their conditions whether a certain people are present in their lives or not. So what ages Allahu Shakir in. Now, we all know that Abu Bakr radi Allahu anhu recited this idea at the death of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, or model de la Martin who was very upset at that time and he was very strict with people that if anyone says that Muhammad Sallallahu Urdu cinema has died, I'm going to severely punish him and Abubakar I'll do a lot more on who came and he told her model

00:13:55--> 00:14:37

doula Who are you to sit down or model doula who I know refused, and Abubakar Ile de la hora and who addressed the people and he recited this idea. And even our Vasco de la Horne, who is the one who narrated this incident and he said that it was as if the people never knew about this idea until that day, and we'll welcome Dylan Warren who recited the idea, and whoever heard this I affirm him began reciting this idea and or model the Allahu anhu. He said that by Allah when I heard Abu Bakar recite this idea, my feet could not hold me and I fell to the ground, meaning that is when that reality struck that yes, now the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam has left he has departed the

00:14:37--> 00:14:59

world, but this doesn't mean that our commitment with Allah subhanaw taala should change. Why? Because we are supposed to be worshipping Allah, the Prophet sallahu wa sallam was at a school, he came, conveyed the message and now he has left and as long as I live, I have to worship Allah. Womack cannoli nevsun unter Mota elaborate nilay

00:15:00--> 00:15:52

Kitab mo Angela. And it is not possible for one to die except by permission of Allah at a decree determined meaning of someone dies, then they died by the permission of Allah. So how could we be upset by the decision of Allah by what Allah subhanaw taala decreed by what Allah subhanaw taala allowed to happen? How dare we challenge Allah subhanaw taala his decision and his wisdom, and when someone dies, they died at the time that was fixed for them to die in. And remember that before even a child enters the world, when a child is in the womb of the mother, the time of their death is decreed yolk, double A jello, they're agile, their time of death is recorded. So if any person dies,

00:15:53--> 00:16:41

they died at the time that was destined for them. So why be upset and isn't the case that everyone has to leave this world anyway? This doesn't mean that that we shouldn't feel hurt. We shouldn't feel pain, of course we're going to feel pain. But the point over here is that accept the decree of Allah. Accept the decree of Allah as difficult as it is, and and for a person to accept that decree is going to take some time So allow yourself time. Allow yourself time Don't be impatient with yourself. Allow yourself to heal. So when my Catalina sin unter Mota elaborated Neela Hickey taba more Agila woman you read Sahaba dunya noop to him in her and whoever desires the reward of this

00:16:41--> 00:17:25

world we will give him their off one minute it's a wobble filati nope to him in her and whoever desires the reward of the Hereafter, we will give him there off was an edge as a Shaq 18 and we will reward the grateful. So you see if a person desires the reward of this world, then what will happen they will work for people for the sake of certain people. Meaning as long as certain people are present in their lives, they will continue they will go on you know working and doing good things and worshipping Allah etc. But if a person desires the hereafter that is their goal, then they will carry on until they leave the world. And this is shockcord What's an shaqiri and again, again,

00:17:25--> 00:17:30

gratitude as mentioned over here and gratitude is to worship Allah in all circumstances.

00:17:32--> 00:18:27

What can amen Nubian Cotta llamar who would be unica feed? And how many a prophet fought and with him fought many religious scholars? So the believers are kind of being reprimanded over here that what happened to you? How come you became weak? How come you thought about giving up? Before you there were so many prophets who were such that alongside those prophets ribby Eunuch Cathy fought Ruby, you're the COVID who are the Beaune? This is interpreted in two ways. Firstly, Ruby Yun is interpreted as large bands of people, any many 1000s So, there were times before you went along with the Prophet 1000s of people fought the enemy, meaning there were 1000s a number and yet they

00:18:27--> 00:19:18

suffered losses. So why are you so surprised when you suffered a loss in the way of Allah? Secondly, it would be Yun is interpreted as patient and pious collars, that they were patient, and they were pious. They were righteous slaves of the Lord. Look at how they they faced challenges in the way of Allah. How is it that they face challenges in the way of Allah from our were her new Lima or Sabah homefree, Serbia, but they never lost assurance due to what afflicted them in the cause of Allah wa baru foo, nor did they weaken warmaster canu nor did they submit? Well, Allahu hibel sabreen and Allah loves those who are steadfast. So, three things are mentioned over here about them, three

00:19:18--> 00:19:59

things they did not do, and what are they first of all, they did not want to know what is what one is the weakness of heart. One is to lose heart to you know, to to lose determination, to lose one's morale to feel very down to lose one's confidence and motivation. And when does this happen when a person suffers some kind of a loss or because of some, you know, some difficulty that comes their way. So it is mentioned over here that FOMO waha No, Lima asaba home, no matter what struck them, they did not lose courage. They did not become weak.

00:20:00--> 00:20:50

In heart, even if their Prophet was killed, even if their leader was killed, even if they suffered great losses, they did not feel weak at heart. Secondly, malba Ofu they did not become weak, and this barf is referring to the weakness of body. And sometimes it happens that, you know, you feel physically weak, why? Because of fatigue because of injury because of wounds, etc. But sometimes, you know, what, when you have something important to do you push yourself why, because what is important needs to be done. But there are, you know, times when we feel because of the weakness of heart, even the body becomes extremely weak. So, what happens is that there's a small, there's a

00:20:50--> 00:21:31

minor headache, and a person says, you know, what, there's no way I can go to work today. Right? And why because they're feeling weak inside. But if there's strength inside, then what's going to happen, even with the minor headache, a person will, you know, do whatever that they can, but usually you see VPS, or different attitudes, some people will sit down, we'll give up because of a slight weakness in the body. And other people will accept that weakness in the body, and they will say, you know, what, they will analyze the situation, they will say, you know, what, this is manageable, right, I can, perhaps the headache is because I haven't really been doing much, perhaps,

00:21:31--> 00:22:17

you know, I need to drink more water, perhaps I need to go out and get some fresh air in. So they will do something. So one of the Ofu, when they were in the way of Allah, they did not let their physical condition overcome them. And because of it, they did not give up was the colonel. The third thing is, is to kind of istikhara is to surrender to, you know, to succumb to the enemy. So they did not give in to the enemy, and will know who you are hibou sabreen, Allah loves those who are patient. And this is basically what sobor is that suburb doesn't mean that you're you're never going to face any challenges suburb is in response to challenges, that when you're facing difficulty, when

00:22:17--> 00:23:07

you are facing loss, when you are experiencing, you know, difficulty, then what do you do? What is the condition of your heart? And how is it that you that you work physically? And what is your attitude towards your challenges? You see, in our head, these, we learned that once a finger of the Prophet salallahu earnings of them got wounded in one of the battles, and he said that you are just a finger that has bled, you're just a finger that has bled, it's not a big deal. It's it's just a cut on a finger. And he said, and what you got, what you have suffered is in the way of Allah. So Alhamdulillah and this is how, you know, we need to view the difficulties that we experienced in the

00:23:07--> 00:23:53

way of Allah, then remind yourself that you know what, yes, I am hurting. Yes, you know, I am tired, but I'm not dead. I'm not dying here. And secondly, if I am experiencing any fatigue, if I am experiencing any pain, then 100 of this is in the way of a law, which means that I will be rewarded for it. Right? I mean, we all experience pain and difficulty in our worldly work as well. But we don't stop over there. We carry on and I think every woman knows that every woman who has to work in the kitchen, it doesn't matter whether you have a headache, it doesn't matter. Sometimes even with a fever, you have to cook you have to you know prepare food and, and and help yourself or help your

00:23:53--> 00:24:43

family. This is something that you you push through. So when this is in the way of Allah, then this is actually a privilege, because now in sha Allah there will be so much more reward will lower your hibel sabreen This is subud and Allah subhanaw taala loves those who are patient. One cannot cola home Illa Allah robina Wolfie, Lana de Reuben our is seraphina v emelina with a bit akademin a one. So now our little camiel Catherine, and their words were not but that they said, Our Lord, forgive us our sins, and the excess committed in our affairs and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people. This is beautiful. What was the way of the Rebellion? That when they

00:24:43--> 00:24:59

were struggling in the way of Allah? What is it that they said? You see a woman cannot call a home and their words were not meaning these were the only words that they said. These were the words that they kept repeating. They didn't just say these words once or twice but they kept saying

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

These words over and over again. And what is it that they said? Rob burner Our Lord, they may draw to Allah. And this is what we need to do. When when we're facing challenges that we start talking to Allah we start calling upon Allah. So what is it that they asked Allah subhanaw taala for? So, in the previous video, we saw how they were patient. Here we see that they made Dora and these are two things that we need to do that we are patient, we do our best. And we also pray hard, and we continue to pray hard. So they said robina they asked for first of all forgiveness, it will fill another Luba now what is Seraph and Effie Marina that our Lord forgive us our sins, our own

00:25:46--> 00:26:34

shortcomings, what is softener and our extravagances in our better, and you see, they this they were seeking forgiveness because a lot of times the challenges that we're facing or the difficulties that we're facing, are a result of our own mistakes, our own errors, our own extravagances you know, for example, if you're feeling extremely tired, in your solo, right, you may have was he so for example, your legs are hurting, right and you're finding it very difficult to stand in Salah. So when you think about it, why is it that your your legs are hurting? You think about and you realize you know what, yesterday I spent four hours standing in the kitchen. Right And why was I standing in the

00:26:34--> 00:27:19

kitchen because I wanted to prepare this and that and this and that and I wanted to impress you know so many people etc. that is rough right? You did too much. It doesn't mean that you don't work in the kitchen you do but you got to balance it out. Or you see that you know what yesterday I really exerted myself when I was at the mall I walked a little too much I I shopped for a little too long. So this is our own is rough. That is now making it about that difficult. So Rob Burnett Will Ferrell Anna dunu been our is Rafa. nafi Marina, when we when we find rabada difficult when we when we faced challenges and difficulties in the way of Allah, then the first thing we need to do is that we seek

00:27:19--> 00:28:11

forgiveness from Allah soprano Tara and secondly with a bit aka Davina, they pray for a third bit aka Davina sebat, that get Allah plant our feet firmly in he make us steadfast that we don't quit, we don't run away. We stay here until the end, we complete the job we carry through until the very end. And then one so now I'll Komal Catherine and give us victory over the disbelief in people. So they made the even though there were so many in number because one of the interpretations of rebellion as I mentioned is 1000s many 1000s they did not rely on their numbers. They knew that success comes from Allah. So they relied upon Allah and they asked Allah, so what happened? For whom

00:28:11--> 00:28:31

Allah whosoever dunya were Hostnet our bill our hero, so Allah gave them the reward of this world and the good reward of the hereafter. The reward of the world was what Allah gave them victory Allah gave them success. And the reward of the hereafter notice it is whoa snuff allowable,

00:28:32--> 00:29:20

the good reward the excellent reward of the Hereafter, because that is so much more and so much better than what a person gets in this world will love who you hibell more sinning and Allah loves the doors of good. Allah loves those who are excellent in what they do. So what is it said, Your son is that a person does not give up, no matter how difficult things are, you're sad is in one's actions. It is in one's behavior, it is in in one's armor, that a person carries through, and then your son is also in coal, in what we say. So look at their words, they were seeking forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and they were calling upon Allah subhanaw taala for help. So such people who

00:29:20--> 00:29:59

are sad in their words and also in their actions, Allah subhanaw taala loves them. Then it is said yeah, Are you her levina Manu, all you who have believed into the or alladhina cafaro if you obey those who disbelieve your will do come Allah Akbar become they will turn you back on your heels for them kalibo ha serene and you will then become losers. If you if you were to obey these people, you will never be successful. So don't think that you you know what what you have suffered at or heard. You know now as a result of that, you must obey you know, those who discipline

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

In order that you may survive, no your success and your salvation does not depend on it these people, how is it that you will be successful but Illa whom Allah Khan rather Allah is your protector wahoo hydro Nestle Dean and he is the best of helpers. You see what happened to her this? First of all, we learned how the hypocrites you know they abandoned the Muslims 300 people left the Muslims went back to Medina, under the library obey. So later on, you know, people were saying things like, you know, you you got nothing from Islam. So revert back to your old ways. So it is said over here that if you are to listen to these people, and you revert back to your old ways,

00:30:46--> 00:31:05

Kenny, you're only going to become losers that for some kalibo ha, serene, look at the big picture. Don't just look at the you know your present. Look at the big picture button. If you were to leave a slum if you were to disobey Allah, then you're never going to become successful.

00:31:06--> 00:31:55

Secondly, we see that before even the battle began the Battle of Abu Sufyan who was the leader of the machine, he said to the unsought that we have nothing against you, you know, if you want, you can leave just hand over our cousins to us, meaning the mahadji rune, who have come to you from Makkah, just hand them over to us, we will deal with them. And and you know, we have nothing against you. We don't have to fight you. So, the unsolved basically, we're given an opportunity to, you know, leave and put them put the rest of the Muslims under the bus. But the unsolved did not. So Alhamdulillah this has been praised over here. Thirdly, we see that there was a man from Medina

00:31:55--> 00:32:34

whose name was a Brahmin and he had actually converted to Christianity. So he was called a Brahmin arrived the monk, but when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam came to Medina, a Brahmin was furious. And after the Battle of budget, he actually left Medina and he joined the machine in Makkah. And in Ohio, he actually came along with them in order to fight the Muslims to fight the Prophet salallahu. Already he was setting up. So again, before the battle, he actually went to the unsought and he called them that you know what, come be with me, I don't want to fight you. I'll save you over here. I'll make sure that you know the mccanns don't fight you. So just hand over

00:32:34--> 00:33:23

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and you'll be good. So it is said over here, that if you were to obey the disbelievers This is never going to save you don't think that a her there was a defeat. And in order to survive, you have to obey the disbelievers know, if you obey them for them. kalibo ha serien you will become losers. balilla Humala come but Allah is your protector, wahoo, Ohio nasality and he is the best of helpers. So, we learned that after the battle, when the with the Muslims had, you know, taken shelter in different crevices within the mountain of Ohio. We learned that Abu sufian he actually called out he said is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam present

00:33:23--> 00:34:04

amongst the people to the Prophet salallahu earnings and I'm told the companions don't answer him. So Abu Sufyan then said, is the son of Abu hanifa, meaning Abu Bakar present among the people again the Prophet salallahu earnings and I'm don't answer him. Then I've also answered is a son of a hotdog among the people meeting or model de la Mourinho. So, again, the companions did not answer him and then also if he answered all these people have been killed, meaning good, we are you know, victorious. So a model of the Longhorn who he could not remain silent over here. And he said, You are a liar Oh enemy of Allah. Allah has kept what will make you unhappy. So I was if he answered

00:34:04--> 00:34:50

soup, superior, maybe Hoban, Yanni his idol hobo, he glorified him. So the so the Prophet sallallahu, Urdu said him said, answer him. So the companion said, what should we say? The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, say, Allah is Allah, that Allah is more glorified, more majestic, and that is what the companion said. So both soufiane said, we have reserved meaning we have our idle Rosa, and you have no reserve. So as if Abu sufian was saying that we were victorious today because of our idle Rosa. And you see, you guys rejected this idol. This is why you have suffered what you have suffered. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said to them, reply, so the companion said, what should

00:34:50--> 00:34:59

we say the Prophet sallallaahu earnings him said, say, Allah is our molar and you have no molar. Allahu mowlana Well, our molalla con

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

So, this is affirmed over here by Leila Humala calm, where who are hiring nurse lady. And you see, sometimes it happens that, you know, in life, if a person suffers some kind of loss or some kind of difficulty, immediately people blame the religion. Right? That, you know, it's because of your hijab, or it's because of, you know, this reason and that reason, it's because of the fact that you take a Salah break at work that you have been fired, you know, okay, fine, it may be the cause, or it may be one of the causes, but you know, but in Lomonaco, it is what, when you worship Allah, Allah is your protector, and the person who has Allah subhanaw taala protecting him, then how could

00:35:42--> 00:36:29

such a person suffer loss? Any all of these losses are temporary, they're very little and in life, there are going to be trials Anyway, there are going to be difficulties anyway. So why, you know, view religion in such a negative way all the time. In fact, we should be grateful to Allah subhanaw taala then it is said so noodle Kafeel kulu biLlahi in a comfortable roba Bhima Ashoka biLlahi marlim Yun azubi suparna we will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve for what they have associated with Allah, of which he had not sent down any authority. Well, my welcome one now and their refuge will be the fire will be Samantha lovely mean and wretched is the residents of the

00:36:29--> 00:37:12

wrongdoers. So we see over here, that in the hearts of those who disbelieve Allah subhanaw taala, cast a verb, what is a verb? terror, fear, and this is amazing. Any The mushrikeen had attacked the Muslims again. And the Muslims, you know, they basically had to take shelter in the mountain of a herd. And then when she came knew that the Prophet sallallahu Ernestina was still alive. They knew that Abu Bakar was still alive. They knew that Omar Abdullah Horne, who was still alive, they knew that they have not completely, you know, destroyed the Muslims. They knew that there were people in Medina. But what happened? The mushy Keane went back to Makkah, any, if you think about it, they

00:37:12--> 00:37:53

could have stayed there, they could have gone and found every single one of the Muslims and killed him. But but they did not. They went back. Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala cast terror into their hearts. And we learn about this man obey Him and kind of that he had said to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that I am going to kill you and the Prophet salallahu already sent him actually responded to him that no insha Allah, I will kill you. So what happened to her is that obey been hollow, he actually found the Prophet sallallaahu earn incentive and he came charging towards him. And as he was coming towards the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he was trying to, you

00:37:53--> 00:38:41

know, attack the Prophet sallallahu Urdu he missed at the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, he actually struck obey even Hello with a spear. And that spear barely scratched obey even holophane his neck. Any obey will kind of didn't really get, you know, badly wounded. He survived. But on the way back to McLean. He kept saying that Mohammed has killed me, I'm dead, I'm dead. I'm finished. And when the people saw his neck, they told him that it's just minor cut, you'll be fine. But obey even kind of was petrified. He was so afraid. And really, he actually died on the way back to Makkah. So his fear overcame him. And this fear is actually something that Allah subhanaw taala

00:38:41--> 00:38:44

helped the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with

00:38:45--> 00:39:34

in a hadith we learned the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that I was given five things that no other prophet before me was given. And one of them is that I was aided with fear the distance of one month, meaning my enemy is afraid of me. They would keep away from me a distance of one month, because of the fear that Allah subhanaw taala has cast into their heart. And why is this fear there? Because they associate partners with Allah. And this shows us that when a person associates partners with Allah, they live with fear, they live with fear. And when a person believes in the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala then what happens is that they have strength of heart, they

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

have courage, they have confidence. This doesn't mean that a person doesn't fear anything. Of course they do, but they know that Allah is there and they learn to rely upon Allah. And that belief in Allah's oneness is something that strengthens a person which a person who does not believe in Allah can never have. So one by one homeowner will be Samatha Wally mean and the refugee will be

00:40:00--> 00:40:44

The fire in wretched is a residents of the wrong doors. Wolcott, Sadako como la who are the Who? And Allah had certainly fulfilled his promise to you. His promise of victory to you is the hirsuta home Be it Nikki when you were killing the enemy by his permission, meaning at the beginning of the battle? Yes, you were winning and Allah subhanaw taala fulfilled his promise to you unless prarthana helped you Allah subhana wa Tada, you know, sent his angel to support you. Allah subhanaw taala aided you He gave you victory. But then what happened? Hector either for Shilton until when you lost courage, fascism, fascism. This is when when a person begins to lose courage. And why is it that

00:40:44--> 00:41:09

some Muslims began to lose courage when their focus shifted, when their intentions changed, and that is when people saw that the enemy was retreating the rest and the Muslims were now you know, collecting the war booty. So the the Muslims were watching them, you know, felt, what about us, we're gonna miss out. So that despair, or that

00:41:10--> 00:41:55

that shift in focus, that self pity led them to what led them to what the nazar tuneful anger, and you fell to disputing with one another? And what is it that they were disputing in? The order given by the prophet sallallahu earlier said, Remember that the Prophet sallallahu, early cinema clearly instructed the people that he had appointed over that, that small hill, that you must not move from here until I call you that even if you see our bodies are being snatched by the birds, meaning we have been slain, and the birds are eating our bodies, even then, you're not going to move until I send for you, I call you. But what happened, that when they saw, you know that the enemy was

00:41:55--> 00:42:42

retreating, they said, Let's go now the battle is over. Let's go. So then as Artem, you, you went back and forth regarding the clear order of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam, were on site to mimbar the Morocco matter a boon. And you disobeyed after he had shown you that which you love. And what is it that you love money, the world. So when you saw the war booty, and you thought you, you disobeyed the instruction of the Prophet sallallahu Urdu said, when you went to gather the war booty, any look at what happened, you're you lost the victory that Allah subhanaw taala had given you. And this is something that we can also relate with. And we and we must, you know, reflect on

00:42:42--> 00:43:27

our lives based on this idea that how, you know, sometimes a person is doing something good for the sake of Allah soprano thought, but then when they start looking at the dunya, they start looking at, you know, things that, that other people are accumulating, and they get tempted to get that their focus shifts, they begin to have self pity that what's gonna become of me, there is that formal, then what happens, a person's attitude changes. And when that attitude changes, and they start pursuing the world, then they begin to lose the help of Allah also. So it is very important that we keep our eyes fixed on the real prize. And what is the real prize, the prize that is with Allah

00:43:27--> 00:44:08

subhanaw taala the reward that Allah has promised, which is actually in the Hereafter, it's not in the world. And for that a person must keep working. So mimbar the amount of Akuma to hit Boone after he had shown you that what you love and you know what we are going to be tested every now and then, you know, we are going to be tested where we're going to find out that, you know, for example, right now, you are spending time with the Quran. And what happens, you find out that Oh, someone is, you know, having so much fun watching, you know, a movie, or have or, for instance, someone is, you know, preparing such and such food for, for lunch or for dinner, and someone else is, you know,

00:44:08--> 00:44:52

doing something else having fun, and you feel like you're missing out. So these tests will be there. But it is important that when we are doing something for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala, we stay committed, we remain firm until the very end, we don't shift our focus, main command, you read the dunya woman command, you read a hero among your son who desire this world, and among your son who desire the Hereafter, Allahu Akbar, even Masaru there'll be a long horn who said that I did not think any of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu rzm desired the world until this iron until desire was revealed. And this shows us that there is always room for improvement. And if we look

00:44:52--> 00:45:00

deep down into our hearts, and if we were honest with ourselves, yes, we do desire the world. So allow us probably

00:45:00--> 00:45:45

Tyler knows who we are. Allah Subhana. Allah knows the diseases which are within our hearts. So those people who left their positions, they were those who desire the world and those who remained in their positions. They're the ones who desired the hereafter. And remember that when a person desires the world, that this is something that weakens the heart, and it also weakens a person in the eyes of others. in Hades we learn that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said that a time will come when different nations will invite each others to attack you to attack you Muslims, just as people invite each other to eat food. So one of the companions asked that is because we will be

00:45:45--> 00:46:37

very few in number, the Prophet sallallahu Erdos that have said no, you will be many, but you will be like the scum on the water, like like garbage, right that has no worth in the eyes of people. And Allah subhanaw taala will remove your fear from the hearts of your enemies, meaning your enemy will not fear you anymore. And Allah subhanaw taala will place 100 in your hearts. So someone asked Yasuda Allah What is this one and the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said love of the world and the dislike of death. So this love of the world what does it do? It weakens the heart. And when a person is so eager and greedy for the world and they start chasing the world, then they also become

00:46:37--> 00:47:23

very weak in the eyes of people people don't respect them anymore. People don't fear them anymore. So we should all check the state of our hearts men come my god the dunya woman coming up to a hero so masala for kumaran home Leah Italia come then he turned you back from them defeated that he might test you meaning he turned you back from them you were about to when you were about to you know have victory over them but our last panel Tata turned you away from them so he did not allow you to become victorious. Why Liam Italia calm in order that he might test you in it's not that you know, Allah subhanaw taala deprived you know, Allah gave you a victory Allah fulfilled his promise to you

00:47:23--> 00:48:07

your focus shifted right it's because of what you did that you suffered the loss, but in that is also a test Liam Italia calm that have that who will realize their mistake who will learn from their mistake, who will accept that mistake and who will improve now what occurred the offer and comb and he has already forgiven you will love who fuddling lol momineen and Allah is the possessor of bounty for the believers. Now, this is a very important principle that we must remember regarding the companions will occur the offer and comfort that Allah has pardoned them that even though they made a huge mistake, right on last month on a pardon them. So when we talk about the companions, we

00:48:07--> 00:48:56

should not be highlighting their mistakes. And we should not be you know, talking about them in in in negative terms, because they were human, they made errors, but Allah pardoned them, what we need to focus on is our own errors. Then it is said is to Surrey doona. One afternoon Allah a heading. Remember when you fled and climbed the mountain without looking aside at anyone? What was solo here the real comfy Huracan while the messenger was calling you from behind, you see when when the enemy came, some Muslims started fleeing, but remember that their back the Muslims were positioned such that their back was against the mountain of war. So in order to retreat, what did they do? They

00:48:56--> 00:49:44

began climbing the mountain in order to get away. So as they were climbing hard, they did not even look back. They did not care about anyone else. Well outside woonona are headed in that fear that shock that state of fright. They did not you know look back waiting or caring about anybody. And what happened at that time the Prophet salallahu Urdu center was calling them that a year about the law come towards me all servants of Allah. Let's regroup Let's gather together and fight back. And when the Prophet sallallahu where it is and I'm called them, he put his own life at risk for Thurber como Han mumbi hummin. So Allah repaid you with distress upon distress, distress upon distress how

00:49:44--> 00:50:00

that one on top of the other that how First of all, they lost, you know a victory that was so close. And then they they lost. Also the the the the spoils of war that they had just

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

You know, started together, and then, you know, injuries and wounds and the loss of so many lives. So luhman becoming one distress after another one along with another, any so many distresses, basically gathered upon them and Lohmann bilum Minh has also been understood as that Allah repaid you with distress because of distress. Meaning because of the distress that you caused the Prophet sallallahu grandson and by ignoring him, what happened you that Allah subhanaw taala made you experience more distress? But in either case, why did Allah subhanaw taala allow you to experience distress? Lee Kayla has so much distress why Lee Kayla Hello, in order that you do not grieve Allahu

00:50:59--> 00:51:50

Akbar. You do not grieve over what are allowed my fire to come over that which has escaped you. What is it that escaped them the victory? The spoils of war? What am I asaba Come on or over that which had befallen you, and what is it that had befallen them? So many wounds and injuries and the death of so many companions? Will Lucha Buren be my karma Luna and Allah is fully acquainted with what you do. Now if you think about it, it is two things that constantly make us sad, right? It is MMA fighter, calm and masaba MMA fighter calm, the things that we lose our losses, whether it is of people or friendships of money of opportunities, and mal cybercom. Secondly, my asaba community, the

00:51:50--> 00:52:44

difficulties that befall us could be an illness, or you know, a fine etc. So, these two things make us sad, right. And here it is said that last panel, tada repaired you with distress upon distress, so that you don't grieve over these matters anymore. Any the the distress that the Muslims experienced at or heard, really expanded their capacity to endure difficulty? Now the thing is that difficulties are a part of life, there is always going to be, you know, some kind of loss or some kind of, you know, pain, some kind of distress, it's that you know, that there's always going to be something or the other. Today, it's too cold tomorrow, it's too hot. You know, today, we're feeling

00:52:44--> 00:53:45

tired tomorrow, somebody yells at us, any something or the other happens, right? And in order to attain bigger goals, we really need to have a greater capacity to endure difficulty, because if little little things bother us, and we get weak and hurt and overwhelmed because of small things, then how are we meant to continue? How are we meant to move on? How are we meant to move forward and and attain bigger goals? So, yes, it was extremely difficult, it was extremely painful, but it increased the capacity of the companions, and it made them more strong, so that they could deal with grief. Well, la hubiera Bhima karma Luna and Allah is fully acquainted with what you do. So, you

00:53:45--> 00:54:35

see, grief, is something that that can be very detrimental, any grieving is something normal, but if a person remains in a state of grieving all the time, that oh, I cannot find my book, I don't know where I put it. And now a person is overwhelmed because of that, or I cannot finish my my essay my assignment and how am I going to do this and how am I going to do that, if a person is always worrying about different things, then then they cannot focus on you know, completing their goals on on achieving their goals. This is why we have been taught to seek refuge with Allah that Allah in the road to becoming an HMI while hasn't that Oh Allah, I seek your refuge from worry and grief,

00:54:36--> 00:54:59

that Allah protect me from this, because constantly grieving can actually be detrimental. So so this is why we have been given the example of other companions that are that Michaela doesn't, right or lost parents are the ones that we should not be constantly grieving because it can be detrimental some

00:55:00--> 00:55:46

Are they called mimbar, the lummi amanat. And then after distress, Allah sent down upon you security in the form of noroxin drowsiness that was yellow shell thought if a domain calm overcoming affection of you can eat a group of companions what happened to them that after the state of extreme sadness, almost pounce automate them sleepy and, and Nora son is actually sleep that is in the eyes. And he is such sleep that causes your eyes to close that you are not able to keep them open anymore. So a book on how to do a lot more I know he mentioned that my sword fell from my hand on several occasions. And there's something that happens that when you are overcome by sleep, whatever is in

00:55:46--> 00:56:33

your hand falls, right your neck even falls. So, so brutal, how have you long more annual he was so sleepy. And this was a you know, a gift from Allah subhanaw taala. Because generally what happens is that when a person is overwhelmed by fear, or grief, they're not able to sleep, and the letter body to recover, right and the body is constantly under stress. But when a person gets to sleep, when a person gets to take a nap, then their body gets to recover. And that strength gives them the ability to bear that grief as well. So some companions were gifted with this it was a break for them. It was a relief, a blessing for them. Well thought if I don't put a hammer at home and foster home, while

00:56:33--> 00:57:22

another faction worried about themselves any they couldn't relax at all. They could not relax at all. They were constantly worrying. And what were they thinking what was on their mind? Yellow no Nabila he later on happy London Lj Hillier thinking of a law other than the truth, the thought of ignorance. And he at that time, some people began thinking, where's the help of a law? How come? You know we suffered so much? What happened over here? And they were thinking, the way that the people don't know Allah think? And what is it that they were concerned about? Only themselves any. And they were thinking that you know what? This this promise, or perhaps this religion is untrue, and there

00:57:22--> 00:58:04

is no help of Allah. And that's it, this matter is over. And the last parenthesis ladle help this is untrue. You should never ever think like this about Allah subhanaw taala that Allah has abandoned me that Allah does not care about me. These kind of thoughts are from shavon. And these kinds of thoughts do not befit a believer. These kinds of thoughts are London jelly, jelly is is the time before Islam, or the way of life that is different from Islam. What is Islam? Islam is about oh hate about knowing that whatever has reached us as reaches by the permission of Allah, and there's some wisdom in this there is some benefit in this. And the last panel Todd is able to remove this

00:58:04--> 00:58:52

difficulty for me, and Allah's promise of his help is true. So never think never entertain negative thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala your co Luna handler nominal agreement che some people were saying meaning in their minds, is there anything for us to have done in this matter? Any? How come? nobody listened to us? How come? You know? This has happened to us cool in amrok hula hula, say, indeed the matter belongs completely to Allah. Because you see before the Prophet salallahu early instead of took the Muslims out to a herd, he consulted them. Right. It was after consultation, it was agreed that the Muslims would go out to fight. Now everybody, of course did not want that to

00:58:52--> 00:59:34

happen. They had a different opinion, including the Prophet sallallahu Are you settling? So there were people thinking over here? Hello, nominal agreement che? Is anybody ever going to listen to us? Why? Why doesn't anybody listen to us? called nL amrok? hula hula, say, you know what, you're not the boss. Right? You only get to give your suggestion. You're not the boss. And the decision lies entirely in the hands of Allah. You're foreigner fee unforeseen Mullah, you've done a luck. They conceal within themselves, what they will not reveal to you. They would never say what their mouth what they're hiding in their hearts. Your coluna low kennela laminal Emily Shea on markethill na

Had the people listened to us had the taken our suggestion. Right? had they done what I told them to do? then nothing like this would have happened then everybody would be safe right now. stuff at uni. There are people who who behave like this and sometimes we make this mistake.

01:00:00--> 01:00:42

As well, that everybody gives her suggestion a matter is agreed a decision is made and then as it is carried out, some people are constantly bickering, constantly complaining. And if they don't complain verbally in their heart, at least they're complaining or in private, they're complaining that nobody listens to us had they listened to us, then you know what, nobody would have suffered, things would have been very different, as if, you know they are separating themselves from the rest of the people. Apolo quantum fee BeautyCon la barraza levina quotevalet he will carclo Lm odagiri him say, even if you had been inside your houses, those decreed to be killed would have come out to

01:00:42--> 01:01:28

their deathbeds. And he don't say that if they had listened to you, and everybody was in Medina just defending the city of Medina, then nobody would have been killed. No, though the people who were meant to die on this day would have died while he epithelia Lovell Matthew so do recall while you mahesana Matthew Kuru become It was so that Allah my test what is in your chests, and purify what is in your hearts will love who are the Mamba to sudo and Allah is Knowing of that within the chests. You see, it is these difficulties that reveal our reality to us. Right? And Leah Batali Allahu Allah may test you, because we say we're, you know, we're, you know, for example, when it comes to working

01:01:28--> 01:01:43

in a team, we say, yes, we're with you, we will work with a team, but then when things go wrong, when things not necessarily go wrong, but but when things don't turn out to be the way we expected them. Then what do we do? Do we start pointing fingers? Do we start blaming people?

01:01:44--> 01:02:33

And then you see this word? Well, you mahesana ficolo become this has mentioned again, you might like them haze is to fully clean something, and it's to polish something almost. You see my house? Well, Hubble Hubble is a rope and my house is to clean it in such a way that there's no strands left on the rope. Because as long as those trends are there, it's going to be pokey, right. So when it is it is shaved, so that there is no strands left any nothing sticking out. This is the case. So you might have some if you could, will become almost punctata is going to clean your hearts. And that's going to happen when you are tested when you're put in difficult situations. And Allah is Knowing of

01:02:33--> 01:02:58

that within the chests. Then it is said in alladhina todo lo mein calm, yo multiple jamara and indeed those of you who turned back on the day, the two armies met in the Masters Allahumma shaitan, ob Baldy maca Sabu it was shaitan will cause them to slip because of some blame they had earned. Now, what is this referring to? You see, when when the when the mushrikeen

01:03:00--> 01:03:43

came back to attack the Muslims. The front files of the Muslims turned their backs, okay. And they they started fighting the Muslims that were behind them. Why? Because at this time, shaitan also shouted shaitan shouted, beware of what is behind you watch your back. Look what is behind you. So some Muslims, they literally turned around and they started fighting the people who were behind them. And among them was who one of the companions of the Prophet sallallahu earlier said in Yemen, there'll be a lot more in him. So when his son who they follow the lamorne, who saw that, here, there's a group of Muslims fighting my father, who was who was also a Muslim. He yelled at them. He

01:03:43--> 01:04:29

said, that is my father, that is my father. But they did not stop. They continue to fight him until they killed him as tophet Allah, he did. They weren't paying attention. They were acting out of haste out, you know, in panic, and who they follow the long run, who kept saying, May Allah forgive you, May Allah forgive you. So it is said over here, that those of you who turned back on that day, and he literally turned back and started fighting other Muslims, and this was an accident. Why did this happen? This was because shaitan caused them to slip. And why? because of some blame they had earned. They were acting in that haste, because of the panic that Trayvon created. And this was a

01:04:29--> 01:04:59

result of some blame that they had earned meaning something wrong that they had done elsewhere in their life. And as a result of that Trayvon was able to have an influence on them. And this should cause us to really introspect that when things go wrong when when we end up making mistakes. Perhaps we need to think that where is it that I'm disobeying Allah? Where is it that I'm listening to shaitan because of what shavon has so much influence on me and you know what?

01:05:00--> 01:05:40

It doesn't have to be really big things. Think about it. The prophets Allah who earned his son forbade us from eating with our left hand. Why? Because shaitan eats with the left hand, right? So if we don't care about this, and as we're grazing throughout the day, we know we, we pick something up their left hand and eat it. Guess what? shad Khan has a greater influence on us. If we you know, the time that we're entering our home, we have been told to say Bismillah, so that chiffon doesn't come in. But if we don't say Bismillah, right, then we allow Sher Khan to come in. We're eating food, we don't begin with Bismillah. We allow shaitan to participate. Then what's happening, we're

01:05:40--> 01:06:22

welcoming Shahrukh Khan into our lives. And if we welcome Chopin into our lives, we're allowing him to have an influence on us. So what do you think isn't true upon going to influence us to disobey Allah subhanaw taala to do wrong things to make such huge errors? So whenever there are such huge errors, the first thing we need to do is seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala. And think, really, that where am I allowing shaitan into my life, one of the afula who are on home, it was a mistake, but you know what, Allah has already forgiven them. So these were the companions who made a mistake. But Allah Spano Tata forgave them in the love of foreign haleem Indeed, Allah is Forgiving,

01:06:22--> 01:07:08

and forbearing and this is so beautiful. That Yes, big mistakes happen, big mistakes, but Allah is Forgiving and forbearing so be forgiving towards yourself also, and be forbearing with yourself also. Because sometimes we're too hard on ourselves. We remain stuck in our mistakes, we don't allow ourselves to move forward, remind yourself Allah forgives, I should also forgive myself. And then part of that is that I that I learned from my mistakes, I seek forgiveness from Allah subhanaw taala and I don't repeat the same mistakes over and over again. May Allah subhanaw taala forgive us and your last panel tharla greatest the wisdom to really learn from our errors so that we don't keep on

01:07:08--> 01:07:21

making those same mistakes again and again. inshallah we will conclude over here for today. So panicle law home ob hammock, Chateau La ilaha illa Anta, a stuffy rucola Toby lake was Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
