I was a bit lame in a ship on a large investment over here
yeah you had levena amanu
or you who have believed is their enormous slavery was further seek help through patience and prayer in the law Hamas sobbing Indeed Allah is with those who are patient
Yeah Are you her? Yeah Are you her is helped me that and it is used to call out to someone It is used to alert the listener
the i o begins with yeah a user Latina amanu or you who have believed meaning listen to this carefully become alert, listen to this attentively.
And when an address is made like this, with Yeah, are you here are with Health Canada is to show the importance of what is going to be stated
that all believers, this is something very important. So listen carefully to this. Because if a person does not listen carefully to something in the first place, then how is he meant to act upon it? So yeah, Are you her, everyone is being made alert
and who is being addressed and levena amanu those who have believed so the believers are being addressed. People have many qualities, people have qualities of subs of patience, of gratitude, different very good qualities. But over here, specifically, the quality of Eman is mentioned. It hasn't been said or you those people who've asked or those people who pray or those people who perform Hajj or those people who are patient, no, which quality is mentioned.
because belief event is the best quality that a person could ever have. It is the best quality. Why?
Because the person who has this quality, the person who has a man has recognized Allah subhanaw taala
the person who has a man will only be able to do what Allah subhanaw taala commands him to do. So,
only when a person has a man, then he can perform acts of righteousness.
And if he does not have a man, he will not perform sada he will not give zakah he will not perform Hajj he will not be patient.
Eman is the key it is the most important quality.
So over here, Allah says yeah, a Johann Latina Manu. Meaning if you're truly believers, then you must do this. Listen to this attentively. Listen to this carefully, so that you can follow this command.
What is the command that the believers are being given? Is there a you know this slavery was
secret seek help seek help seek the help of Allah. But how should you seek us help this Sabri persona by doing summer and by praying for them
is there a new is from the root letters is well known. We have read earlier in total Fatiha Yak and our Buddha we are going to study
and the word is used for help. And it is a general word that is used for help.
Meaning it includes every possible type of help
whether it has helped against me or it has helped in fulfilling a commitment in performing a particular task. It is general help
and it's the honor is to seek help. So seek Allah's help. How should you seek the help of Allah? This slavery was sunnah
sobre is from suad the bra
and SOP literally means to be patient. What does it mean to be patient? sobor is hempsell naps.
It means to control oneself, to hold oneself back. Do not let oneself fall. Do not let oneself despair.
Do not let oneself say anything that is negative. That allows the penultimate or disapproves.
Sabir is happy to not just control oneself. Not let oneself give up or say anything bad
Say something rude. That is what Southern is. When something negative happens, when something difficult happens, what is the person who he says, I'm not going to stop doing what I'm doing, or I'm not going to do that which Allah disapproves of.
And because of this, Saba has been divided into three different types. The first type of server is server at the time of difficulty, which is when a person holds himself back stops himself from being negative.
And negativity includes saying something negative, or doing something negative.
For example, somebody shouting at you, and you want to shout back, what is
what is up to keep quiet?
Similarly, you hear of a big loss that you've suffered from,
for example, may Allah protect all of us. But if, for example, in their house, somebody committed theft,
all of a sudden, what happens to people? That I no way? How's that possible? And they start screaming and yelling, sovereigns, what? To keep calm, to hold oneself together. Don't say anything that is negative.
This is the first type of
the second type of cyber is to hold oneself firm, to hold oneself on the obedience to Allah soprano Dinah,
that a person remains steadfast. He doesn't give up on obeying Allah, on following the commands of Allah.
And thirdly, the third type of submit is when a person holds himself back from doing that, which is wrong,
from disobeying Allah subhanaw taala.
Because a person is tempted, there's so many temptations.
But what is so bad that a person says no, I'm not going to do this. Allah doesn't like it.
So is there no this sub c cow, by doing sub and seek help owl was solid by performing center
in dystonia, all of us are here for a test.
And test means difficult situation
a trial. So this life is full of difficulties, it is full of trials. Sometimes we face these difficulties and trials from other people, sometimes, from the situations that occur in life, through different situations, different incidents, but life has problems, life is full of difficulties. And everybody's difficulties are different from others.
And along with this, human beings are weak.
Allah subhanaw taala tells us sort of to Nyssa I had 28 Well, holy cow, insane, very fair, and mankind the human being, he was created weak.
What does it mean?
That the human being the person, he cannot deal with the problems by himself,
he cannot deal with the problems with the tests that he faces by himself, he needs the support of something else, in order to face the problems that he experiences in life.
He needs the support, he needs that help.
So Allah subhanaw taala gives us a solution over here.
What is that solution?
That when you suffer any difficulty when you suffer any problem in life, instead of complaining? Instead of harming yourself? What should you do?
Two things do suffer and praise Allah.
Because when you do something, Allah will help you be patient.
When you perform Salah when you make to our to our last panel down, then Allah subhanaw taala will send his help to you.
And dealing with the problem is going to be easier.
We learn in spite of the fact to her we say everyday economic Voodoo, what we are going to say only You we worship and only you, we ask for help.
So over here, all of us are being told seek help with regards to all of your matters, whether it is your deen whether it is your dounia whether it is your family, whether it is your business, whether it is your school, whether it is some people you don't like what should you do?
Do some have patience, and also persona
notice over here that sobre comes before Salah
sober comes before Salah. Why?
Because for Salah we need
a person cannot perform Salah without such.
Also, server has been mentioned before further because sobor is much more difficult, isn't it?
server is much more difficult. It is easy to go perform to the counselor for a counselor, even 20 but server is much more difficult.
When somebody is being rude to you when somebody is mistreating you, when somebody is manipulating you and you want to take revenge, and you don't you're a patient, that's more difficult.
Is there a no this slavery was sort of seek help, through patience and also through prayer.
To remember that human beings are weak and we cannot deal with the problems ourselves. We need some help, we need some support.
And how do we get that help? Or where do we get that help and support from from Seville and Sala
when a person does solve it, it is possible for him to bear the difficulty when a person performs Salah it is possible for him to deal with that difficulty.
Is there a new discovery?
And why should a person be patient? Why should he seek help through solder and solder?
Because Allah says in Allaha Mara Sabine
Indeed Allah is with those who are patient.
Those people who do Subhan Allah subhanaw taala is with them.
So over here, there's good news for the one who is patient,
but not as over here. It has been said Allah is with those who are patient, isn't it those who do suffer but at the beginning of the eye, we were told seek out through suffer and Sunnah.
So over a year, it hasn't been said that Allah is with those who perform Sunnah. But what has been said, in particular is that Allah is with those who do suffer.
Because again, sobor is more difficult than sada and for Salah also, you need some,
without suffering, a person cannot perform Sunnah.
Now over here, Allah says, Allah is with those who are patient. What does it mean by that? Allah is with the patient once.
Remember that this word Mara, with Maria, to be with togetherness witness, this is of two types.
First of all, it is to be with someone in the general sense.
And specifically, a loss of panel data being with someone This is of two types.
But first of all, a lot of panel data is with the people in the general sense.
What does that mean?
That our last panel data is with the people with his knowledge, with his summer with his hearing, with his bustle with a scene with his podra his ability, with a cell phone with his power, etc.
So Allah is with the people wherever they are.
It doesn't mean physically remember that.
Allah subhanaw taala is above his.
It doesn't mean physically allies with the people know. What it means is that Allah is with them with his knowledge, meaning he knows exactly what they're doing. With his summer he hears what they say with his buzzer, he sees what they do with his squadra he has the ability to do whatever he wants to do with them. So on and so forth.
For example, Allah subhanaw taala tells us and so little Hadith I have for wahoo American animal kingdom and he is with you, wherever you are. Allah is with you. Wherever you are, meaning he sees you he watches you.
The second type of Maria is specific Maria
which is that Allah subhanaw taala is with the believers in a very special way. And what is that special way? That he is with them with his help and support with his assistance with his help? For example musala salah and Helen Ursula. When they were center for their own, obviously there were scared What Allah subhanaw taala say in sort of Haha, I have 46 we learn in many Mara Kuma a smell what Allah
Indeed I am with both of you. I hear and I see, meaning I am with you, my support, my help is with you. I see what you do what is going on and I hear what is said to you as well.
So in other words, my help and my support is with you.
Similarly, when the prophets are allowed to sell them was in the cave with a bow buck, what did he say?
Let them in the LA Marina, don't be sad. Allah is with us.
So over here when Allah says in the Lucha morass savuti, what does it mean?
That allows help, Allah support allows assistance is with who, with those who are patient.
So we are weak, we are not able to deal with the problems ourselves. We need a lot of support. How do we get a lot of support by doing something
because when a person tries to do something, Allah gives him the ability to have something.
When a person performs Salah, then Allah soprano Dada, answers his door.
So Allah is with those who are patient, meaning his help, his support, his assistance is with those people who are patient.
And on the other hand, if a person is not patient at the base of trials, if he doesn't pray to Allah, then he's left to deal with the difficulties by himself.
He's left to fend for himself. He doesn't have the help of Allah, he doesn't have the support of Allah.
So what lessons do we learn from this?
First of all, the eye shows us about the importance and excellence of even the importance of email,
it is of the best attribute, it is the best attribute the best quality that a person could ever have. Because that is the one that is mentioned here.
What else do we learn from this ayah?
When there are problems when there are difficulties in life, then we need the help of Allah. And how do we get that help? By doing something and by performance Allah
to alert on we should state our worries and problems. We are going to go through problems anyway. Difficulties problems are a part of this life. If you want to make it easy for yourself, try something. Try some other problems are going to come anyway.
Both of them are important solver. And Sala are both important. It's not just subway, it's not just solar. Both are important. Sometimes they say okay, I'll be patient, but we don't really make the automa.
McDonald's will follow in particular,
we learned many lessons from this is one of the lessons that we learn is that salah and sub have a very positive effect on a person.
sauna and sub both have a very positive effect on a person
because they enable a person to deal with the problems to face the problems.
We know about people who because they don't have the deen what do they do? They meditate.
They do so many things like in order to gain their focus in order to relax. Allah subhanaw taala has given us a solution. You face problems. Simply go pray to Allah simply do something.
Also we learn from this ayah that a person needs solver in order to deal with the difficulties in life. He cannot deal with the difficulties in life without subsidy.
There is a Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned in Muslim eccmid in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said we're alone enough is Sabri Alana dakhla hyaluron kathira What a Nussle, ma sub or Anil faraja, my uncle, what a number three you saw. Remember, that there is much good in bearing with patients that which you dislike, there is much benefit there is much good in burying something that you dislike with patience. And no remember that victory comes with patience. Victory. Success can only come with patients because patients is one that you remain steadfast you don't give up and that is only possible when a person is set first. And when a person is set first, then he is
And then with hardship comes away out with every hope.
Chip, there is a way out.
Remember, no hardship is a dead end, every difficulty in life is eventually going to pass. The only thing that is permanent in life is change. Everything changes.
So with difficulty, there is also ease. And that is how the Heidi ends that with difficulty comes ease.
Another very important thing that we learned from this ayah is that patience is a sign of a person's human.
Because it's Yeah, are you are letting me know. Is there a universal video center in Aloma slavery? So if you're really believers, then you must do this. So what does it show that if a person performs salah and if a person does subud that is a sign of his Eman. That is a sign that this person is a believer. Because when a believer goes through difficulties and hardships, what is his reaction? What is his reaction? He says
he doesn't complain, he is patient, he is positive. And his patience shows the level of event that he has, the more patient a person is, the more emotion he has.
The less patient a person is, the less emotion he has. The person who has a man has yaqeen has conviction that Allah subhanaw taala will definitely help Allah will make a way out of difficulty. Or he thinks that there's some wisdom behind this difficulty. There is some wisdom there is some reason behind this difficulty. And even if he is not able to understand that wisdom, at least he trusts Allah soprano.
So patience, shows a person has
there is another Hadees that is mentioned in Bihari, in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said May at the supper, you forbid Hola. Whoever tries to be patient, Allah gives him patience.
Whoever tries to be patient, Allah gives him patience.
And whoever doesn't try to be patient is there you know, best slavery was for you try to be patient, Allah will increase your capacity, Allah will give you more ability to be patient. And the heartbeat continues, that there is no other gift better and more vast than patients. The best gift that a person can be given is what
you should ask our last panel data to make your patient belong majority sabula there's a Muslim dog, the profits are a lot of fun. Okay, you should ask Allah subhanaw taala for patients because if you don't have patience, how can you deal with the problem, because
if we ask for patients, then that means there will be more difficulties in life, not necessarily whatever difficulties are written for you, they're going to come to you anyway.
So when a person asks a loss of handler for the ability to be patient, he's only making the difficulties easy for himself.
Slowly, I just wanted to quickly share an example I when I graduated some years back in Germany, I was applying for jobs. And I sent out a couple of applications and I got all the interviews, and I always got to the last stage, but in the end, it never worked out. So all my Christian friends, basically, they were like so concerned and I you know, doubtful, or I know demotivated and, you know, that was really hard on you. And somehow Alhamdulillah I was really keen on working in one company. And it didn't work out in that company, either at that moment. So somehow I have patience, because I was like always thinking it didn't work out because it's not right for me, because that
wasn't a good job for me. And then, some months later, I got a call from the company that I actually wanted to work in, they invited me for the interview, and I got my job there. So I waited maybe a couple of months to get the job. And eventually I got it. And it showed really that my Christian friends, they told me to you know, maybe you should change yourself to please those who are interviewing me in that sense or that sense and change our character, whatever. And I was like, No, I'm not going to change myself just because people basically so it just shows the way of thinking that I was like, okay, maybe it's not the right thing for me, but they were like doubtful and
and this is what the believer because the believer has seen that this is a love decision. This was already written for me. And if this didn't happen, what I wanted to happen, there's some wisdom behind it.
So we learned that when a person faces difficulty, a person could react in two ways. One is
that a person is very upset, he's very angry, he gives up hope,
he becomes upset with the people he becomes upset with the decision of Allah. And doing this does not take him anywhere.
For example, if a person, you know, if your sibling breaks something of yours
and you shout at them, you scream at them, you yell at them, is your yelling going to bring that thing back together?
Similarly, if a person dies, and their relatives they become very impatient, they say, Why Allah? Why at this time, the question, they yell, they scream, they will, is there wailing? Is there crying? Are their objections going to bring that person back to life? No. So one is that a person does not accept the decree of Allah,
and he is impatient. And it does not take him anywhere at all.
And sometimes in doing this, a person leaves obeying have lots of plans out as well.
For example, the example that the sister gave, with some people when they're not successful in their dunya, they think that they have to leave their Deen for example, that I have to leave my hijab
and maybe I should go to mixed gatherings etc, etc, to to make more connections, so that I can get up there, and then I can get a good job. This is against Southern as well. Because our is to continue on with our to continue on obedience. So this is one way of reacting that a person is impatient.
And the other is that a person is patient, and he accepts the situation, he accept the situation and he is patient.
We have been sent in this dunya for a test. And there are going to be many tests, tests cannot be avoided. If a person is impatient, he's only going to harm himself. And if a person is patient, he is going to benefit himself.
First of all is going to get peace of mind. He's going to be relaxed,
and then he's going to think of Okay, now what can I do?
So he becomes a positive person.
And remember that when a person does something, then he has the help of Allah. He has the assistance of Allah. And without Saba, he doesn't have the help.
And when a person is patient, then he also gets reward. Allah subhanaw taala tell doesn't sort of Azuma is number 10. In the value of Fabi, Runa. Angela home, be lady has.
Indeed, the patient will be given their reward. Without account.
The patient will be given reward without any measure, a measurable reward, unlimited reward for who, for those who are patient.
So is there a no bisabolol Fabio Salah? Now we see that we should seek out through two things subud and Sunnah. We should also perform Sunnah. We learn about the Prophet sallallahu sallam, that anytime any difficulty came his way, what would he do? He would hasten to perform Salah. And sometimes all we have to do is just go to widow, perform to rock Asada and make the water loss.
That's all we need to do. And many times, we don't do that. Many times we don't do that. We will go tell other people about our problems. We'll call our friend, something happens we call our friend, we call our mother. We make other people worried and concerned. And the best thing that we could do is go and pray to Allah. Go and pray to Allah, because that will bring you peace. And that will also bring the solution to you other people, they will just hear your problem. They will say, Oh, I feel so bad for you. I feel so sorry for you. Really what can they do? What can they do what's in the hands of people nothing.
Many times when we share our problems with people, it only makes us feel more bad. Because people want to hear the whole story. Again and again and again. And when you repeat that entire story, it makes you more and more sad.
Nothing happens without the decision of a law without the permission of Allah. If Allah put you in a problem, and he will also guide you as to how to come out of it.
Then Allah says, what are the Hulu and do not say, Lima ukata do feasibility? There he AM. What about those who are killed in the way of Allah? That they are dead? Those people who are killed in the way of Allah don't say about them that they are dead. So what can we learn from this?
That at the time of difficulty
Don't say negative things either a person has died, but don't even say something that is negative. Because negativity, what does it do? takes you away from sobre
la kulu kulu is from tone of welder. Again this command is to your uh your levena Ave Lima Lehman, for the one who meaning concerning the one who in the matter of the person who you put the new FISA bill in there, he is skilled in the way of law, you gotta know is from cotton, off the land.
And cotton is to kill someone, to murder someone to put someone to death. So one who is killed, FISA beaten there, in the way of Allah? What does it mean by this? A person who is killed in the way of Allah, meaning a person who is skilled, while he is striving to exalt the name of Allah. Because Sabine in their way of Allah, what his way of Allah, the way that is approved by Allah, or the way that leads you to the pleasure of Allah. And what is that? The Deen of Allah.
So a person who is killed in the way of a lot meaning while he was striving to exalt the name of Allah, to exalt the word of Allah, and if he is killed, who is this person? What do we call him? A Shaheed, someone who is a martyr.
And remember that this is not necessarily in a battlefield only.
Sometimes it is in the battlefield. And other times a person is killed simply because he is not just a believer, but what is he doing? He is spreading the dean. He is working for the dean.
We learned about the bunny is fine, what did they do? But you can cut them off or you can duck to do the bunny Israel they killed a group of the messengers and they denied a group of the messengers. So the messengers were killed. Why? Because they were spreading the deen of Allah. They were reviving the deen of Allah.
So anyone who dies in the way of Allah don't say that they are unwed they are dead.
And what is the plural of may? and may it is on the roof letters mean? Well, the mote mote is that my youth is one who suffers from that meaning one who is dead.
And over here, in this ayah, we see that the greatest difficulty that a person could suffer from is the death of a loved one isn't the death of someone whom they love, the death of someone who is close
over here, a loss of panel data is telling us how we must do something, this is a practical example of doing such
that when there is a tragedy or a disaster, then a person should not be negative in words, by complaining or otherwise. So he told us that anyone who dies in the way of a lot do not say that they are dead.
What does it mean by this? Do not say that they are dead
because they are dead. If you think of it a person who dies in the way of Allah. He is dead for example in Shaheed, which is why he's buried. I mean the rule is not with the body anymore, which is why the Shaheed is buried. So what does it mean by this, that they are not dead?
What it means is that they shouldn't be called dead, because their death is different.
Life is about experiencing different things.
And death is the termination is the ending of that experience.
When a person is alive, he hears he sees he tastes he feels, but when a person is dead, you can save a lot of things in front of him. He's not going to yours bond. He's not going to say anything out. So death is determination of experience. But a person who dies in the way of a law, he is alive. How is he alive? How is he alive? That he is still experiencing that which is good. He still experiences joy.
So Allah says don't say that they are dead, because their death is not absolute death. Their death is different. But they are here rather they're alive. A here is a plural of hay. And hay is from the roof address her Yeah, yeah.
Hey, means one who is alive.
So rather they're alive.
Were they alive,
in the person
they're alive in the person in the room.
Remember, that when a person is alive when a person dies, there is a state of birth,
which is the place or the state that a person is in until the day of judgment
and inshallah you will read the details of bodies of at other places in the Quran and also elsewhere in earth leader, the details will come.
But for now, this is sufficient that Bursa is the state that a person is in until the day of judgment, depending on how he has lived in the dunya.
If a person has lived a good life, a life of obedience, then he is in the birth of and he is enjoying, he is happy, he has given reward, even in the bustle.
And as for the person who has lived a life of disobedience, what about him? He has given punishment in the grave, up until the day of judgment.
Up until the day of judgment, a person is given punishment.
And we learned this from several a Hadees from several verses in the Quran.
As for those who are martyrs, when they leave this dunya they are alive, in what sense that they're alive in the bursa. And they're enjoying, they're enjoying many things. For example, a person who is alive he eats and he drinks yet Gouda shrub.
And similarly, when these people are in the bars of, they're also given to this.
For example, we learn from sort of Allium Ron, I 169 to 170 whenever Savannah Latina pootie Luis Avila lay on water. Well, here in Nairobi, him yourself Hoon ferry hanaa vema, to whom Allah whom infallibly
and never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they're alive with their Lord, receiving provision, receiving provision, they're given risk, rejoicing in what Allah has bestowed upon them, of his bounty.
So they are alive in the Versa and they are enjoying the risk that Allah Subhana Allah gives them.
There's a hadith that is mentioned in Sahih Muslim in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that their souls meaning the souls of those who die in the way of Allah, the martyrs are in the insights of green birds, having lanterns suspended from the throne, roaming freely in paradise where they please, so they roam around freely in Paradise, then taking shelter in those lanterns, their Lord cast a glance at them, and said, Do you wish for anything being a lost pet? I will ask them, Do you wish for anything? They will say? What shall we wish for? When we roam freely in paradise? Where we please? Meaning we have all the freedom in general? What more could we ask for? And he did that with
them three times meaning Allah subhanaw taala will ask them three times. What do you want? Do you want anything? Do you wish for anything? When they see that they would not be spared from being asked again? They would say or they said, Oh Lord, we would like for you to put our souls back into our bodies, so that we might fight for your sake once again.
That is what the desire.
Because the reward for dying in the way of Allah is so great.
The reward for dying in the way of Allah is so great. That imagine there in Jenna. And when they're asked again and again, do you wish for anything? Do you wish for anything? And when they figure out that there's no way there's no getting out of this, we have to wish for something, what is it that they wish for, to be returned to dunya so that they can die again in a way of Allah.
Because the reward is events. The greatest difficulty that a person could face in life is death.
And if the person dies in the way of Allah with Southern then there is immense reward for that.
So we see that the Shahada, they're alive in numbers, they experience reward in the person.
And because this matter, this issue is of the unseen, we cannot say that they are alive Just like we are in the dunya or they are dead, like you know, people who like normal people who die. We cannot say much about it. We have been given little information, little understanding about this and we believe in it, as it is. But the point is, that don't say that they're finished. Don't say that they're expired. Don't say that their lives have terminated. No. They haven't been put to an
And Allah subhanaw taala still gives them risk so that they can enjoy.
And what kind of death is it that they suffer? Allah says what acula Sharon, you do not know, you do not have any awareness as to what kind of death exactly they have suffered, and how exactly they're a knife.
The word that I own is from Sheree Shin angle, and Cheryl is to know to realize something through one senses, what does it mean to realize something or to get to know about something to perceive something through one senses
and the word shield is also from there is another word from the same root vectors which is sharp and sharp is used for hair and you can see hair very fine, very thin.
So sure, is to know about the fine details of something.
So what I can let us around you or people who are in this dunya you cannot know about the fine details of their state of existence, of their condition of how exactly their death is or how exactly their life is.
Because this issue has to do with the unseen. So no matter how much we try to figure out what kind of life they live, we cannot know. But what is enough for us to know is that they are alive.
What actually let the shirt on?
So what do we learned from this ayah?
That first of all, it is forbidden to say about those people who have died in the way of Allah that they are dead. Letter kulu it's an empty, meaning do not say that they're dead.
What else do we learn?
There is punishment of the grave for those who disobey and there's reward for those who obey our laws.
We learn from this idea about the status and reward for who for the shade.
And something like a very fine lesson that we learned from this is that the reward that Allah soprano Valley gives to a person is much better and much greater than the deed that a person performs. Because if you think about it as Shaheed What does he offer his life? What does Allah give him? life?
Shahid offers his life, Allah gives him life. Well I hear.
So there is no good deed that is wasted. A Lost Planet Allah rewards the good deeds.
Also, we learned that a person who dies in the way of Allah is a Shaheed now the question is Who exactly is a Shaheed who exactly is a martyr?
There's a hadith in Sahih Muslim marriage the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Mankato Lita, una crema de la E and earlier foward piece of Eden there. Whoever fights so that the word of Allah is Exalted, is fighting in the way of Allah. And if he dies, then he is a Shaheed
so we learned that a Shaheed is someone who is skilled, while he is striving to exalt to elevate the name of Allah.
And he does that exclusively for the sake of Allah. Not to get the praise of people not to get some award or some medal because what use is that praise or reward or metal when he has died? When he does it sincerity for the sake of Allah, then Allah soprano data awards him.
I will mention to you some other ahaadeeth which tell us about who else is a Shaheed.
For example, there is a hadith that is mentioned in Buhari in wish the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that one who dies in a plague, what is a plague, a disease that spreads very quickly, and people die because of that, literally, cities are wiped off because of that.
So one who dies in a plague, or one who dies of an intestinal ailment, meaning an ailment in his stomach. One who dies of drowning, meaning a person who dies why because he drowned.
One who dies under a collapsed building.
And one who dies as a martyr, in jihad.
All of them are who
they are Shahada
because if you look at all of these debts, they're very painful. That's one thing.
And they require support from a person.
It doesn't mean obviously that if a person is a disbeliever, and he dies by drowning, because the shape not all the other conditions are understood.
So as long as the person is patient throughout these difficulties that he faces, and then eventually when he dies, that he's considered a shade,
and other hobbies that is reported by Buddhahood and MSA, in which it has been stated that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that there are seven martyrs. And having said these five that I mentioned the previous Hadith that he mentioned, another person one who dies in a fire
Meaning a person who is burnt.
And a woman who dies during childbirth.
Because all of these debts that are mentioned, they're very painful, very difficult and a person has to suffer, suffer, suffer, suffer, and then eventually he dies.
Sometimes, a person dies because of these things, because of the oppression of others. For example, the person is burnt while he's alive.
There are stories of people who are burnt when they're alive, simply because they're they were believers.
Similarly, a building collapses over them. So this is what Sabah and because of that summit, they are Shaheed
so we see that there are different levels of martyrdom.
There are different levels of Shahada of dying in the way of Allah.
But the condition is that a person obviously is a believer, and he does suffer. And then when he dies, he is content with the decree of Allah, with the decision of Allah.
But we learn over here that in particular, the shahida Zoo, the one who dies in the way of Allah,
there are other Hadees as well, in which we learned that if a person is protecting his wealth, his family and he is killed because of that, while he is protecting. Even then he's a martyr.
For example, he's killed because of injustice. So Allahu Allah knows about who really is a martyr and who is not a martyr, there are people who apparently die in the way of Allah. But Allah knows if they're really sure that there was a man who was killed in one of the battles and the people said, Oh, he's a martyr and the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, How do you know? he objected to them saying that, because that person had stolen something from the beta male.
He had stolen a sheet, one sheet from the beta, which deprived him from being a martyr.
we as human beings don't have the right to call anybody Shaheed. For example, if a person dies in in one of these seven ways that we learned from the Hadees
but we should have good hope. We should be positive we should pray for them. That Allah make the machine eat, make their death I should eat.
That's listen to the recitation.
who is the Shaheed
there could be a person who is fighting in the way of Allah, the example that I gave you, of that person who died in the time of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, but Allah knows about the knee of the person. So we don't have the right to call somebody a Shaheed. But over here, the purpose of the ayah is to tell us that a person who dies in the way of Allah, He is given a lot of reward. And we should try that. We live in obedience to Allah. And when we die as well, we're happy with the decree of Allah. We're content with the decree of Allah.
Because when a person does suffer throughout his life, then he's able to have some at the end of his life as well.
Because a Shaheed is someone who was really doing some, he's giving up his life for Allah to please Allah.
So when a person does suffer throughout his life and at the end of his life, then the reward is immense. That Allah tells us well, I never know one nickel vishay in mineral hole fee, well jewelry 1% mineral am wyrley well unfussy with thermal rod overshoot is forbidden.
And we will surely test you with something of fear and hunger and the loss of wealth and lives and fruits, but give good tidings to the patient. give good news to those who are patient.
Why don't I really want to
notice the well, the lamb and the noon Misha did. What does that show?
A lot of emphasis and remember that whenever a word comes like this, there are three emphases over there. First of all, what there's an implied question. So what it means is we're law he Lennar blue and
then there is lamb which means surely and there is known which had that which gives the meaning of definitely. And another one is from the roof letters bad lamb well, but I believe
But uh, yeah, blue, as we have had earlier, is used for a test ballot is used for a test that is very difficult. That is very intense. It's not easy. It's very difficult to go through it.
And this is a test that comes through difficulty. And it also comes through height through something that is good, for example, but that is used for a test that could be through someone's death. And it could be through someone's birth, it is a ballot, it could be
and how is it intense? How is it difficult, because when a person dies, when a relative a loved one dies, a person has to be patient,
when somebody is born, when a child is born, a person has to be grateful.
So in every situation, a person is being tested, a person is being tried to see if a person is grateful, or if a person is impatient. Is he hopeful? Or is he negative? Well and everyone
and this is the promise of Allah, we will surely test you. We will definitely test you just is a part of life.
We learn so little milk I do. A lady hola como de will hire de Leah blucon, a Yukon arsinoe Amala he created death and life to test you as to which of you is best indeed.
So in our lives, we are being tested, we are definitely going to be tested
to see what
to see who is worthy of going to Jana and who is not.
Now the question is how are we going to be tested in life? How, through five things that are mentioned over here through massage table,
five trials, five difficulties, what are they vishay in with something meaning health of the fear,
shame over here indicates something and men gives the meaning of detail. It is of detail it is it is explaining
something, what is that something that we're going to test you it
it is hope it is your so on and so forth.
I notice the word shape in it ends with the mean there's two casula under it. And whenever a word ends with and when it is called Nikita
and the noun is Nikita for several reasons. One of them is to indicate the less quantity of something so shaken gives the meaning of duck lean meaning through something that is very small, through very little hope, very little hunger, very little of these five things. And others say that this napkin over here is indicating that the
meaning is indicating cathro abundance.
A lot of have a lot of do a lot of knocks.
So Shay, in this makaira is indicating either the clean orthoclase
level or more. So we're going to test you with a level or a lot of what First of all, alcove fear
nordhoff is from her welfare and health is used for fear worry, and health is fear of some harm that one thinks might strike him in the future.
It is fear of some danger of some harm, that a person fears he is going to suffer in the future.
So something of fear, but doesn't mean by this. This fear could be fear something that is very insignificant. Or it could be fear of something that is very major. For example, a person fears darkness, a person fears insects, a person fears lizards and other person's fears the gym. Some people they fear about their future, about their business, about their work, about their education, about their career, about their family, about their children. So fear is a part of life. So some fears are because of external reasons. And some fears are within ourselves.
Some fears are just within ourselves. What we can say just
paranoia or anxiety or apprehension that a person suffers from.
So we're definitely going to test you with fear meaning you are going to suffer from fear in life
in the general sense, in the specific sense, at a societal level, at a public level, and also at an individual level.
For example, sometimes nations, groups of people, they fear, what do they fear, a natural disaster, their enemy. Similarly, they fear about the loss of business declined in money in resources. So, these are fears, threats that people fear from.
And these are what they are tests. They are all tests. Think about all those different things that you fear.
Sometimes people make fun of people when they fear certain things.
For example, if a person is afraid of losing something, or a person is afraid of driving, or a person is afraid of different things, what do people do? They market them, they make fun of them. And they don't realize that this is a test that also Pandora has put that person into? Why should you laugh at them? Why should you make fun of them?
What another one that can be a in mental health?
What else? What's the second thing that we're going to be tested with? While you're no longer your is from the roof letters g Well, I
What is your what is hunger? hunger is a feeling of discomfort or weakness that a person has, because of lack of food.
What is it a feeling of discomfort or weakness that a person has because of lack of food, because his stomach is empty.
But hunger is not just the state of discomfort or weakness, it is with the urge to eat something
it is along with the urge to eat something
it is not just person is feeling very weak, a person is very uncomfortable. He's suffering from a stomach ache because he hasn't eaten anything but he doesn't want to ignore that is not your, your is both there is discomfort. And there is also the urge to eat.
Some people have an empty stomach, but they don't want to eat anything. Or they shouldn't eat anything. For example, when they're fasting, fasting gives you some
and there are some people who are very impatient. Even if their stomach is full. They want to eat something else. They won't eat all the time, even if it's just chewing gum, where it's not appropriate, for example, in the classroom.
So I'm sure we are going to be tested through your through hunger. How? How are people tested through hunger? How are we tested through hunger,
for example, there is no food available.
You're hungry, you're at home, you open the fridge, there's no food, you open the pantry, there's no rice, there's nothing that you can cook either you open the freezer, there is nothing that you can cook.
So first of all, it is the unavailability of food, food is not available. Similarly, back how in Pakistan because the floods, they're saying don't send money now send food, because what are they going to do with the money if they don't have food
lands have been covered with water and everything is covered with water, things have been destroyed, where are they going to get food from?
Even if they have money, a lot of money, there is no food, there is no food to purchase.
So sometimes it is due to unavailability of food.
Sometimes it is because of not having money to purchase food.
And these are things that we experienced as well sometimes,
for example, you go somewhere and you're very hungry, there is food at home, but you forgot your wallet, or you don't have money at that time and you're hungry, you want to eat.
So sometimes it is because of the unavailability of money with which you can buy food
or sometimes there is food, there is money, but the person is not able to eat
there is food, there is money where a person is not able to eat why? because of some disease. For example, the person is intolerant to certain type of food. If a person has a milk allergy, if a person has a dairy allergy, gluten allergy or something like that, and there is bread there is milk there is cheese. Can you eat that?
No we cannot.
Similarly, you're allowed to eat you have no allergies, but all the food that is available is how long
Can you eat that? No.
What is this then? This is a test.
Well under blue and knuckle, we will definitely test you. This is a test as well.
Not having the money to buy food, not being able to eat the food that you have. This is a test.
Similarly, when a person is fasting, that is also a test, and he's hungry, he wants to eat, there is food, but he's not allowed to eat because he's fasting.
What is this? It's a test because he wants to eat, but he can not eat this is a test
what else are we going to be tested through
one minute of oil and loss of wealth nuts, nuts is from the roof better is known bar solid.
And I told you before that one literally means next. So this is that word naps.
naps means loss or decrease or shortage of something
to diminish something to run low.
So Noxon, loss loss of what middle unwell
and what is the plural of the word man.
And man is for me wirelend.
Man is everything that a person owns,
whether it is money, cash, or it is some matter, it is some things it is an asset, for example, your house, your furniture, your clothes, whatever.
And it also includes the animals that a person owns.
Obviously, before or even today, there are people who own animals, okay, and what do animals they're either a source of transport for you, or they're like a business for you, because through them, you make money.
So not seminal, and where you will suffer. This is a test what is the test that you will suffer from a loss of wealth.
For example, in a person's business, there are no sales, or he doesn't gain much profit, or there's a natural disaster. And everything that he owns, is completely finished, is completely destroyed.
Similarly, a person's house catches fire, or it is drowning underwater, or there is no profit, there are so many bills to pay. The money that a person earns, is not enough to cover all the bills to cover all the expenses. A person doesn't have any savings, he's not able to save, or all of a sudden there's an unexpected expense that he has to cover that he has to pay for. He never expected that. And all of a sudden, for example, a close relative becomes very ill, or a person himself becomes very ill and he has to pay for all the treatment, which is not covered. So an unexpected expense, which runs his bank balance to 01 Noxon mean a
loss of wealth, shortage of wealth, when money is less. This is what this is also a test.
And then also what else will enforce and the lives and enforce is the plural of naps and what is enough, a person a soul.
So what does it mean by this a loss of lives, death,
death of all
of people around you. It could be family, it could be friends, it could be people who are working. And it's not just caused by death. Sometimes it is disease. Sometimes, it is simply that people leave
and the manpower that you had before, the number of people that you had before. It's all gone.
There's shortage of people to do some work.
And unfortunately, we suffer from this a lot when it comes to the matters of the
people have their own things that they want to pursue their own aims, their own goals, and they think that the dean, somebody else is going to do the job.
Somebody else is going to work for the
so when there is shortage of people, whether it is through death, or people leave because of their own selfish reasons. This is also a test
for who, for those who are still there.
Sometimes a relatively skilled unjustly
sometimes a friend dies unexpectedly.
Sometimes a child dies.
Sometimes there is a natural disaster, killing many, many people
Other times, there are viruses that kill lots of people in just a few days.
We're not saying mentally unwell when and for
no shortage of what else and a shortage of what Femara and the fruits
a thermal what is the plural of the word similar similar is from the mean.
And thermal as you know is used for fruit. But in the literal sense of words tomato is not just fruit, it applies to the product of a process it is produce. So nothing will unwind while emphasis with Ahmad What does he mean by that?
A loss a shortage of fruit, a shortage of produce
that, for example, there is just not enough produce one particular year, the stock is useless. Or there is a lot of produce. But it gets spoiled.
For example, you buy all that fruit, and you bring it home and within a day or two, it's gone, it's finished.
Sometimes the land is destroyed.
And it is not possible to grow any crop over there to plant any trees over there.
Or the crop or the plants that are on that land. They're finished, they die, because the land has been destroyed.
Sometimes the entire crop is damaged.
Because of the weather, because of fire because of frost because of Gil different things.
I remember I visited a farm once. And it was a very beautiful farm and they had a lot of mango trees.
And they were telling us that a few years ago, that whole orchard was full of orange trees.
And one season what happened was that because of the intense cold, all of the trees, they died, literally they died.
And that was the time when they were going to pick all the fruits, all of the oranges. That was the time when they were going to get all of the profit.
But because of all of those trees dying, they lost everything.
So an accident mentally unwell while unforce was tomorrow.
And remember that the word summarize, some also use it for children. Because children are also what
you know you give birth to them, they're like fruit. So a person is tested through the loss of his children as well.
Knocks and knocks is not just lost, it is shortage.
There are no children
or children leave.
So all of these are tests and trials that a person will suffer in his life.
He will suffer from all of these tests and trials in life, whether a lot or a little.
So tests are going to come. What are we supposed to do? Seek help of Allah through sobor and Salah. Allah says wabasha savarin and give good news to those who are impatient.
Good News of what
good news of reward
well by Sheikh Rashid is rock band sheen rock Bashara.
And what does beshara mean good news. And remember, it is such good news that you can see it visible on the person.
You can see the excitement, you can see the happiness you can see the joy on the person, but by sheer sobbing and sobbing is a Florida Southern.
So give good news to those who are patient of reward. Why? Because when they are patient, at the time of any of these disasters that strike them, what happens? they obtain the reward of Allah or Allah subhanaw taala promises them his reward.
And notice Allah says we're bat* give good news to those who are patient.
What do we learn from this?
That when a person is said, when a person is suffering from something, what should we do?
cheer them up somehow.
Don't say Okay, so what happened?
Okay, tell me the whole story. Okay, tell me what happened. And this also happened Really? I feel so bad. No, not like this, but she'll give good news of what? afterward.
So say something that will cheer them up.
So the question is, what why should a submarine Who are these submarine when are they patient, their patient at the time of the striking of any of these disasters? And how are they patient? How are the patient?
Is the big question.
What does it mean to do something
right? Because we know that we should do suffer but how how
First of all, accepts the fact that this is the decision of Allah. This is the decree of Allah.
And when a person is content, when he accepts, then allows outcomes.
And when a person becomes upset and angry, then what happens? Then he deserves the anger of allies. Well,
there's a Hadees mentioned in a Timothy, that the greatest reward comes with the greatest trial.
greatest reward comes with the greatest trial. When Allah loves the people, he tests them.
Whoever accepts that wins this pleasure.
were accepted the trial wins the pleasure of Allah.
But whoever is discontent with that, burns his raw
burns, his anger, earns the anger of
who a person who does not accept the decision of law.
Another very important lesson that we learned from this particular Hadith that I mentioned to you is that where the Hadith says that when Allah loves people, he tests them.
So these calamities that come in our lives, they do not just come upon a person who is sinful.
Remember that they do not just come upon a person who is sinful, but they also come upon those people who are righteous, even the messengers. The more closer a person is to Allah, the more he is tested,
Ibrahim alayhis salam, he was tested. He was tested a lot.
So who are these patient ones? How do they do such? What kind of software do they do?
Allah says, and livina those people who either are far better masiva
when a disaster strikes them, what do they do?
Are you in LA? We're in LA, hurrah, June.
They say indeed we belong to Allah. And indeed to him, we will return
and Medina either a sabaton Muslim
the words of sabaton and mostly but they're from the countryside. Well, the
side Well, the soap literally means to hit the mark. What does it mean to hit the mark?
For example, it is said atharva seven,
the arrow the seven What did it do? It hit the target.
For example, you hit the bull's eye, the bullseye is a target.
So, a sub a sudden the arrow hit the target.
So, so is to hit the mark
and the word sub is also use for one who is right. For example cited is used for a person who has the correct view or who has the correct opinion or who has a good solution concerning something.
Why? Because he has hit the mark.
He has hit that which is right
from the same route towards sabweb. Not so app so I was reward but so app with a slot is used for the correct meaning of something.
You may have heard people say or you may have read in some places will la who are alemu bisola. What does he mean by that that Allah is more knowing of that which is correct. Allah knows about that which is best. Allah knows best. Well lo Arden will be selected. From the same route. We read the word Sai Gabe earlier what is the you say you oka say give it rain. Exactly. Why is rain called Surya because it falls on the place that it is meant default. It comes to a place where it is meant to come in.
So I saw that home when it comes to them when it strikes them when it reaches them. Why? Because it is meant to reach them it is not an accident. Remember, trials and difficulties are not an accident. They are the decree of Allah.
Or sabaton they were supposed to hit you. They were never meant to miss you. And that which has missed you was never meant to hate you.
Like we learned from the Hadith that remember a lie in times of ease and he will remember you in times of distress. What hit you could never have missed you. What missed you could not have hit you.
So either a salvato masiva What is masiva notice the word mostly what begins with me? So motiva is one that reaches literally we'll see but is one that reaches one that hits
and then from this receiver is used for a calamity, a disaster.
What do we learn from this? That masiva that strikes a person is not by chance, but that person was the target. It was
meant to reach him. It wasn't meant to avoid him.
So when a disaster strikes them, what is their reaction? What is the reaction of those who are patient
palu they say, in that Illa, he were in the illa hirado.
In there indeed we enter is a combination of inner and inner means, indeed Nan means we so in that indeed we
lilla him for Allah, meaning we are the possession of Allah. We are His servants, Allah owns us. He is our Malik. And since he is our medic, we are only his possession, he can do whatever he wants to with us. We belong to Allah.
I'm the possession of Allah. Allah is my Malik. And just as any money can do whatever you want, similarly, Allah can send my way. Whatever he wants, in any lab, we belong to a law.
We're in LA LA June. And indeed, to him, we will return
on your own as a Florida, Roger. And Roger is from Roger.
Roger is to return Roger is one who returns. So indeed to him, we will return
meaning in the Hereafter, we will return to him where he will recompense us for what we have suffered now or for what we have done now.
So indeed, we belong to Allah, and indeed, to him, we will return.
So whatever that Allah has given us, whatever he takes away from us, it is his, it belongs to him.
It wasn't ours in the first place. It belongs to him.
So if he gives us something, or if you take something from us, it is his, it's his decision. He is a master, he can do whatever he wants. So why should we be angry,
we're in a urogen. And to him, we will return meaning we will return to Him in the year after with all our matters with all of our affairs. And we hope that the one who sent this lever to us will also reward us for our patients will also reward us for our acceptance.
So we learn that the first thing that the patient wants to do is that they accept,
they accept the most labor that strikes them.
They accept the fact that it came by the permission of Allah.
And if they're patient, we're in that la herradura. We're going to return to Him. If we are patient, there is reward.
Una iica those meaning they are the ones who are laying him upon them. swallower to never be him our blessings or praise from their Lord.
The word Salawat is a poor enough Sunnah. And what the salami prayer, but remember that the word salad has different meanings depending on who is being used for and who it is being done for.
Who is doing the Salah, and who is the Salah been done for
when Salah is done by an art by a servant for who for a loss of data.
Then select means prayer. What does it mean? Prayer
when Salat is done by Allah subhanaw taala or by His angels or by the people for another creation for a creation, then it means one of two things. Either it means pre is finet or it means blessings.
Either it means center praise, or it means blessings. For example, inserted as a leader in a lava formula equitable use on lunar Island maybe
Allah and His angels what do they do use a lunar island? Maybe they send their Salah on the Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
Similarly, at the beginning of many hoppers, you may have heard of Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah you may wonder Oh my God.
That's wrong. This is such as for Allah. It's a different type of Salah.
When it is for Allah, it means prayer. When it is for people, by Allah or by the angels or by others, then it means either praise or it means blessings.
Over here, lie kirlyam Salatu mela him Salawat from Wu Milla beam from their Lord. So what is it about Salah right over here, blessings or praise? That Allah sends His blessings upon them, and he praises them. Where does he praise them in the company of the angels?
praises them. Allah mentions them. He talks about them in the company of the angels.
Sometimes if you're suffering from something, and somebody remembers you, how do you feel? This the fact that they remembered you, just the fact that that part of you, it just makes you happy. by for example, your friend tells you, that particular teacher of yours she was asking about you, or that particular relative of yours, she was asking about you, how do you feel, you feel special?
Who is the one remembering them? Allah, He is praising them, and he signs of blessings upon them.
So Allah alayhi salatu mela beam and upon them is also Rama and mercy.
the mercy of Allah governs them, what will their eco home and what they do, and it is they who are there rightly guided once and moved on as authority Florida study
and mood study is from Heather yet, as you know, at that, at that is to receive guidance to be on the right guidance. Some of the ones who are guided ones who are upon guidance,
meaning their course of action, their way, their reaction is that which is right, is that which is correct.
The way they have reacted to the problem is the way that is right.
And also what methadone indicates is that when a person suffers from difficulties, and he's patient, he says in Angela, who were in a euro, June, then what happens,
Allah's help comes to him,
Allah guides him as to what to do. And if a person is impatient, and he tries to take his anger and frustration out on others who have nothing to do with the problem, then what happens is you're going to get guidance from Allah know. And remember, guidance is his shadow and they'll feel
they'll feel as to what to do each other as to what to do.
Sometimes you're in certain situations, and they're completely out of your hand. You're suffering from those problems because of another person
because of a spouse or a relative or something like that. And we take our frustration out on who,
on who, on our children, the husband is creating problems for the wife, and the wives frustration is coming out and who are the mother in law, on the sister in law, on the brother in law, and who is the one creating the problem, the husband.
So, when a person does not do suffer on the problems, then what happens? He loses guidance, he is not rightly guided. He doesn't know what to do, he is left on his own. And when a person is patient, Allah sends blessings Allah praises that person.
Rama comes his gums. He Daya comes, what are the next steps? What should I do?
And it all begins with acceptance.
It all begins with acceptance, just accept that your husband is like that. Or just accept that your mother said this to you or just accept that your parents forced you to do something. When What use is there, in taking out the frustration on yourself or in other people, there is absolutely no benefit.
And the person is not going to get out of the problem anyway.
Allah aka human.
So over here, we see that there is great reward for those who are patient. What is that great reward
that Allah gives them reward in this life, Allah praises them near the angels of those mercies upon them. And Allah also guides them.
So we see that when a person is suffering from a problem, at the time of difficulty, a person can react in one of two ways. One is that a person accepts and he's patient.
The other is that a person does not accept and he's not patient.
And when he's not patient, and when he gets upset and angry with other people, with the decision of Allah, he's angry with Allah literally some people become upset with Allah.
I'm not going to press on that again because my mother died when I was very young.
Or I will not press on it and because of such and such, is it going to help you? It's not going to help you.
A person who does not accept the problem, then for him is also anger.
As I told you about that Hadith, Monrovia fellowship, who bought a person who accepts them for him His pleasure, and woman Samantha fella who suffered and a person who gets upset them for him is the anger of Allah.
And we also learn from a hadith that the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, lace Amina memorable, who do the worship called Juba. What are we that well, Jay Hillier?
He who slaps his cheeks, meaning in anger, in sadness in frustration, tears as clouds, and follows the ways and traditions of the days of ignorance is not one of us. He has nothing to do with us.
Sometimes, in a difficult situation, people start yelling and screaming and cursing. You've seen that people start cursing at others. And when a person does that, what did the Prophet say? He's not one of us, he has nothing to do with us, that is not a believer.
And as for some, if a person does something, then that is something that is beneficial.
The scholars have said that when a person suffers from some difficulty, then he is on one of four levels. he reacts in one of four ways. The first is that a person does suffer,
that a person is patient.
And that is why that is mandatory. It is necessary for a person to do something.
And what the subhead include, that a person is controlling his emotions. He stops himself from getting upset.
He cries, but he controls his tongue.
For example, when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said Ibrahim when he died, and the profits are a lot, and I was crying,
and the people were like you when you cry,
what was his response? But the eyes send their tears, and the heart is said, but we do not see anything except that which pleases our Lord.
Indeed, or Ibrahim, we are bereaved, we are saddened by your departure from us.
Just imagine a parent who loses a very small child,
he's going to cry, he is going to be sad. What was the reaction of the Prophet sallallahu sallam, the eyes We The heart is sad, but nothing that displeases my lord is going to come out of my tongue.
So one is that a person does so.
The second level is that a person has rebar that a person is pleased with the decree of Allah.
He is content with the decision of Allah. And this is different from patients. This is different from subway, because summer is just about controlling oneself. River is about accepting what comes a person's way.
Because sometimes, we are controlling ourselves, we're not seeing anything but we're not able to accept, isn't it? We're not able to accept, we cannot accept the fact that somebody has died, we cannot accept that we are suffering from such a problem. Riba is a level that is better than something.
Why? Why should a person have little, because it will lead to denial.
I am pleased with Allah, my Lord, in Allah, we belong to Allah. If I belong to Allah, it is his decision, he can decide whatever he wants, and if he has decided something for me, there must be some fade in it.
And when a person has at a thought, when a person is content, then he becomes positive.
And he looks for the good things, or the wisdom behind his suffering from a particular problem.
And when he is impatient, when he doesn't accept, then what happens? He sees all the doors that are closed for him.
When you accept and you say, oh, maybe this was the wisdom, maybe this was the wisdom, maybe this was the wisdom, and there is always wisdom.
The third level is that
it is of gratitude
that a person is grateful for them asleep.
Grateful for them.
How's that possible?
I mean, a person is suffering from a difficulty. And he's grateful for that. How's that possible? How should you be grateful for the most lever over the most lever? How, saying Alhamdulillah Allah holy hell, thinking that it could have been much worse than having the delights only this, it could have been much worse. And when you look at a problem like this, it makes it very easy for you to deal with that problem, to accept the problem to have suffered over that problem.
For example, a person is grateful. Why because he thinks that this is a means of purification. For me. This is an opportunity for me to get more reward.
This is an opportunity. The believer is positive
chose me for this particular test. There was a very pious woman who was suffering from a greatness LIBOR. And she was very patient. So the people were like How are you so patient when you're suffering from such a difficult situation, how are you so patient? So she said, in the Halawa the edge rehab and satiny Murata Sabri her, the reward for this masiva. The reward for this difficulty has made me forget the difficulty of doing something over
the reward for this small sliver has made me forget the difficulty of being patient, over that receiver,
the thought of reward has overcome.
What did we learn
that Allah gives reward to those who are patient without any measure, without any measure.
And when a person focuses on that reward, and everything becomes insignificant, everything becomes less.
There is a hadith that is mentioned in Muslim Ahmed in which the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Ma'am and I hadn't been and muslimeen you saw will be mostly waiting for your kulu in Allah he were in la de la de Rouen. Allahumma Gibney, famously Bertie was love La Jolla behind him in her Illa Fareed, I believe Alec, the Messenger of Allah said, there is no Muslim who suffers a calamity. And says what Allah has commanded that in that Allah he were in a eulogy room, and then he says, Oh Allah, reward me for my calamity. and compensate me with something that is better than that. So no believer says that, except that Allah will compensate him with something better.
When a person is certain, when a person makes the walk, this is a difficulty that has come my way. There is some wisdom behind it. And I am hopeful for the reward. And Oh Allah reward me for my patience and give me something better than it what is unlikely
he will compensate him with something that is better.
So we see that a third level is of shocked
that a person takes that occasion or that incident, as an opportunity for more reward.
Another level is of sort of anger, of being upset of reacting negatively, or being rude to others,
of showing our frustration to others.
And when a person does this, it doesn't get him anywhere.
And remember that sahab is how long it is forbidden. It is a major sin.
It is a major sin, because a major thing is that which brings the anger of Allah.
And from that Hadith and Timothy, what did I tell you, that when a person is angry, then for him is anger.
When a person is angry with the decision of Allah, then for him is the anger of Allah.
So one way of reacting is being very impatient, showing anger not accepting, becoming upset with Allah. And this is a major thing. A person has to do Toba from it.
life is full of problems.
It's a promise you will face difficulties, you will face challenges. Life is not about ease. But if a person reacts in a particular way, that at the time
Disaster What does he say?
In other law he were in LA he Raji Rouen, then he will get the help of Allah, He will get the blessings of Allah, He will get the mercy of Allah, and he will get the approval of Allah, Indonesia and in
saying in Nadella he was in LA he Roger.
And remember the statement in that interview, were in neither urogen, a person verbally says it. And he also says it in his heart. Saying it in his heart means that a person believes strongly that I am owned by Allah.
Allah owns me, he is my Malik, he can do whatever he wants to with me, this is his decision for me. If this is his decision, I accept it.
And this dunya is not forever. What in English, this problem is not forever, it's going to end very soon, I am going to return to a lot. And if I'm patient right now, if I accept right now, then when I returned to him, there is reward, there is ease. If I don't, I'm only going to make my dunya miserable, and miserable. So these verses, they show us how to remove misery from our lives. How to remove depression, and sadness from our lives, accept the problem.
And seek Allah's help is there in the civilian sauna.
Every single person is tested in some way or the other.
Every single person is suffering from some way or the other.
When we solve a problem, we compare ourselves with others. I don't have this. But look, she has that.
I don't have this, but they have that.
But it's possible that you have something and they don't have it as well.
So never compare yourself with others. compare yourself with those who are much worse than you.
And when you look at their problems, then your problems look so insignificant. They seem so less than nothing.
Think about those people who are under the sky without any roof above them immersed in water, everything they own is gone. Everything they own is finished. That's a problem. And somebody has said something rude to me. And I feel very sad. Is that really a problem?
I have food to eat, I have a place to live. I have people who love me, people who listen to me 100 Allah, Allah quiddity hell
a slowly come. Like we're saying, we always look at other people. And we say, oh, they're better than us. It's a story mentioned in the history, it may be weak, but there was a man who met other person and he said, I can make dua for you and me Do I will make for you to be accepted. So he said, they really can make a draft for me that I will not be tested at all that I will live this life without tests and the other mentor knows, that's impossible. Because this life is a test. He said, I see some people who are okay in their life is okay, go outside, find a person who if you think that person is not being tested, come to me, I will make the offer you, you will become like that person.
So he went outside and he looked the first person so this looks nice. And then the next person writes better than the first one. And the end he saw reach me. He had this big shock for sans working for him. He just forgiving all that many people working for him. And he said, Well, I like to be like that one. So he got to know him. He went to his house, big mansion of everything. And he said, Okay, before I got to ask somebody to make a dua for me, so that I become like you just tell me only if you don't have any disease. So if I ask you to become like you, then I will have this disease with that blessing. He said, No, no, no. He said, I don't have disease. And then they reach
me and say, I feel like who is this that more than me? And he told him I'm going through this through that. And then the end of extortion. He said, you see those four songs you saw in my shop? They are actually not mine. They are my wife. My wife got it by committing a sin. So to cover up for her, I kept them. And then he said, I feel like a poor man who don't have anything to eat, but has his family is better than me because I have nothing. So and he really is really unquoted with what if I have
patience is at the striking of the calamity, meaning right at that time, a person is patient not shouting and screaming and taking no revenge from people. Okay, I'll be patient. That's my patients
in Alabama who were in a eulogy
Whatever I had, whether it was a child, or some wealth or a house, Allah gave it to me for some time to enjoy. And if he's taken it away from me, it's his decision
to pentacle long will be handed over later.
