00:00:01--> 00:00:11

I levina those people who imechanica whom Phil early if we give them authority in the land McKenna from the reflectors,

00:00:12--> 00:00:13

meme calf nude.

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

Makana, you Makino tanking

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

and Tamkeen is to give authority to give a position to someone. The same word was used for who uses reducer

00:00:28--> 00:00:45

gallica McCann nalley, use of a fill up. So, use of RSM he was given a stable position, right, he was given authority, he was given power. So I levina in mechana home who deserves the help of Allah?

00:00:46--> 00:00:56

Who are the ones whom Allah will eat? There are those who if we give them authority in land, what will they do a call Masada, they will establish the Salah.

00:00:58--> 00:01:01

They will not forget Allah, they will remember Allah.

00:01:03--> 00:01:08

Because many times what happens it's very unfortunate that as soon as a person gains a little bit of authority,

00:01:09--> 00:01:33

a little bit of you know say that his say is what is accepted. Then what happens people neglect the right of Allah. But the true servants of Allah those who continue to receive the help of Allah, Who are they? They're the ones who established the Sunnah. What, that was the carrot and they also give this occur, they also give the rights of people

00:01:34--> 00:02:10

because sometimes what happens we think that we should just work for the dean, we should just remember Allah and the rest of the people forget about them. People are people and if you get concerned about them, you will not be able to do anything. But we see that there is a perfect balance over here. Don't forget the rights of Allah and don't forget the rights of the people and don't become so selfish that you're only concerned about yourself know what Mr. RUBIN Martin goofy and they ordered that which is right which is correct. When a whoa I didn't want it and they forbade that which is one club which is wrong. When they lay here october two more and for Allah is the

00:02:10--> 00:02:12

outcome of all matters.

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

What do we see over here?

00:02:16--> 00:02:19

That in this ayah those people who serve the deen

00:02:20--> 00:02:23

those people who are deserving of the help of Allah are described

00:02:24--> 00:02:40

that there are those people, when they have authority when Allah gives them victory. When Allah helps them, they don't become arrogant, rather than humble. They don't forget Allah. Rather they continue to remember Allah

00:02:41--> 00:02:50

because many times things are started in the name of the religion. Right? But what happens as soon as they're started, people begin to neglect their Salah.

00:02:51--> 00:02:59

They're busy doing their work, the time of Salah comes, it's almost over and then people go to pray.

00:03:00--> 00:03:16

This is not the correct behavior. This is not the correct way. If we want to receive the help of Allah, we have to establish the Salah. We have to pray Salah on time. We cannot neglect Salah karma salata

00:03:17--> 00:03:24

and remember that Salah is something that shows you your status of your email, it shows you the level of your email.

00:03:25--> 00:03:37

The higher the man, the more help of a lot will be. Because what did we learn in the law you that Pharaoh and in Medina, Manu, the more a man a person has, the more help of Allah he would receive.

00:03:38--> 00:03:41

So a common salata what was the

00:03:43--> 00:03:50

meaning even in their financial matters, they're concerned about what Allah subhanaw taala has commanded? What Allah has obligated.

00:03:51--> 00:04:15

Because sometimes when it comes to the deen, we think our Deen is all about, you know, going to the school studying and giving the test giving the assignments, that's all that the dean is about, you know, we're helping the Dean of Allah. But the fact is that yes, that is important, but we should not compartmentalize our lives. We should not do that. If we are obeying Allah subhanaw taala in one aspect, we should also be obeying Him in other aspects.

00:04:16--> 00:04:30

If we're concerned about the recitation of the Quran, we're concerned about teaching other people how to recite the Quran. We should also be concerned about our cats that have we given as a cat or not? Are we still delaying? Are we still procrastinating?

00:04:32--> 00:04:39

Because if we're neglecting the main things, then we're depriving ourselves of the help of

00:04:40--> 00:04:43

what Mr. RUBIN Murphy won a homerun in one

00:04:44--> 00:04:48

and they order that which is right and they also forbid that which is wrong.

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

This is also extremely important that alongside personal injury bad a person should also be concerned about others that I know I am doing whatever

00:05:00--> 00:05:13

I know, right? I am trying to help the deen of Allah. But there are other people who are perhaps living in the same house, who are perhaps very close to me, how much do they know? How much have I told them?

00:05:14--> 00:05:22

If I'm so concerned about my hisab? If I am so concerned about my dog at my Afro, why should I not be concerned about other people?

00:05:23--> 00:05:25

This is something extremely important.

00:05:26--> 00:05:36

So what do we learn this ayah who deserves the help of Allah, who continues to receive the help of Allah, those who have these four characteristics in the

00:05:37--> 00:05:43

established establishment of prayer, giving as a cat, commanding that which is right, and forbidding that which is wrong?

00:05:45--> 00:06:01

So whenever you want the help of a lot, check yourself, Am I doing this properly? Am I neglecting any of this? Perhaps I'm neglecting my solid, this is why I'm not receiving the help of Allah. So we have to analyze our results continuously.

00:06:03--> 00:06:12

And we also see a very important thing in desire. That leadership authority is not just about having a very high position.

00:06:13--> 00:06:17

It's about fulfilling the duties as well.

00:06:18--> 00:06:24

Because we see over here that a levina, ima can now fill out the accounts when Otto Otto was

00:06:26--> 00:06:39

the mission of the believers in Makkah, it was not just that they should have a state in a way they should be the people in authority. No, this was not their goal, what was their goal, that we should be allowed to

00:06:40--> 00:06:44

practice our religion? This was their ultimate goal.

00:06:45--> 00:06:58

This is why when the Muslims when they migrated to Medina, what do we see that one of the first things that was done was, the masjid was built. The Masjid was constructed so that people can perform the Salah.

00:06:59--> 00:07:11

And the rest of the things that continued the cat, honorable maroof ne and a mocha discontinued. So when a person is true, in his promises, that Allah subhanaw taala also, it's him, he also assists him

00:07:13--> 00:07:39

when you get the book, and if they belie you. This is an address to the prophets of the lotus and he has been reassured that if the people deny you which people and the people of Mecca, then remember that further, get the word qabalah. Whom, then in fact, it denied before them who homeowner, the people of New and odd was a mood and the people have similar meaning this is not something new.

00:07:40--> 00:07:46

If you are being denied by your people, this is not something new, the people before also they denied their messengers.

00:07:48--> 00:07:54

What is the lesson in this for us? That if a person faces hardship, in the way of Allah,

00:07:55--> 00:08:26

then he should remember that this is a part of the package. This is how things have always been. Because what do we think that if we are trying to do something for the religion of Allah, if we are serving the deen of Allah, everything should be very nice and smooth for us. There should be no difficulties. But we see that the moment a person steps into something for the sake of Allah, and what happens, he only faces challenges. He only faces difficulties. Now sometimes people think that Allah is not helping us.

00:08:28--> 00:08:49

Maybe we are so sinful, maybe we shouldn't be doing this. But the fact is, that regardless of who you are, when you are doing something for the deen of Allah, you will face hardship, you will face difficulty. This is a fact. Because all the messengers, they face this difficulty.

00:08:50--> 00:08:54

So just because a person experiences some hardship, it doesn't mean that he should leave his work.

00:08:56--> 00:09:03

It doesn't mean that he should stop doing what he's doing. No, he should be confident he should continue to do what he's doing.

00:09:04--> 00:09:09

So the profits are a lot of stuff has been converted over here that if you're being denied, it's okay.

00:09:10--> 00:09:37

The profits before they were also denied. We'll call me Ibrahim and the people of Ibrahima, listen and even they denied their Prophet, their messenger will call me loose and the people have looked on Instagram even they denied the messenger was habermasian and the people of Medina meaning the dwellers of Medina, who was the messenger who was sent to them. Sure, I already said what could the by Moosa and even musasa was denied.

00:09:38--> 00:09:59

See one nation after the other one prophet after the other is mentioned. What could they were Moosa and even Moosa was denied by who, by their own by the people of Iran, and to an extent the Bani Israel also, they refuse to obey Him in so many matters. What could the VA Moosa, but what happened for unladen Katharina

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

But I give respect to, to those people who disbelieved and later from the Ruth address meme land where malware and malware is to walk fast it is to walk briskly

00:10:13--> 00:10:25

and in lair is to give respect to someone it is to give rope to let's say an animal. so that it can walk it can run as much as it wants

00:10:27--> 00:10:51

you know, there are some leashes which are just like a string okay. But there is another type of a leash which extends right. So, if for example, the person is holding that type of a leash, and the dog is able to run, the leash keeps on extending, this is what in that is that I gave them rest bite, I let them go as far as they wanted to.

00:10:53--> 00:11:03

I let them go as far as they want to do whatever they wanted to do, I let them do it. But then what happened, there was a limit some hospital home and then I sees them.

00:11:04--> 00:11:09

We see that the people have their own for their own himself what happened he was not punished immediately.

00:11:10--> 00:11:32

Years and years went by unlaid to Allah gave us by the people of new hair SLM 950 years, he did that to them, where they punished immediately, no, they were given a long rest by a very long group. But as we learned earlier, that when people become oppressive, then very soon, they suffer from downfall.

00:11:34--> 00:11:49

So some hostile one, then I sees that meaning I punish them for gave again and again. So how was My reproach Nikita is actually nikiti you see the Jacobian it gives meaning of my reproach

00:11:50--> 00:11:53

and Nikita some newsletters noon caf.

00:11:55--> 00:12:07

And the word Nikita is understood as punishment. What kind of punishment that completely transforms, changes what it has been inflicted upon,

00:12:09--> 00:12:22

that you cannot recognize the place anymore. You cannot recognize the individual anymore. That punishment that disaster was so severe that the entire landscape changed, the entire city changed

00:12:24--> 00:12:41

nikiti my punishment that completely changed that made it completely unrecognizable. Because remember mooncup is also that which cannot be recognized although moon comun you are a people who cannot be recognized.

00:12:43--> 00:12:53

So for K for can and a key. How was my punishment, that this punishment completely destroyed them completely disfigured them that they were unrecognizable.

00:12:54--> 00:13:02

If you went to that place yesterday, and if you go to that place tomorrow, you will not be able to tell that it was the same place for Kaif again in a few.

00:13:03--> 00:13:09

And secondly, Nikki has also been understood as that how was My denial?

00:13:10--> 00:13:15

How was my denial, my denial of what of their directly

00:13:16--> 00:13:21

that I refuse to accept their disbelief

00:13:22--> 00:13:26

I punish them severely punish them for K for canopy.

00:13:28--> 00:13:39

So learn this from history that any nation who has been oppressive any nation who has disbelieved an individual or a nation, what happened to them,

00:13:40--> 00:13:47

what happened to them, they were given rest by they were allowed to do whatever they want to do. But then after some time, their freedom was taken away.

00:13:49--> 00:14:14

And in this is comfort and reassurance for the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and the believers that he has right now in Macau, you are weak. Yes, your enemy has so much authority and power over you that they can just come and take one of you and punish you as however they wish. Don't think that Allah is not helping you know he is helping you. But right now he is giving rest bite to these people. So they can do whatever they want, and then they will be punished immediately.

00:14:16--> 00:14:20

And remember that Allah does not forget, as you can see from the best examples.

00:14:22--> 00:14:31

We see that in the NASA ma sub. This is the law of Allah, that help victory comes with what with patience?

00:14:32--> 00:14:52

And what do we think that if we're doing something, then help should come to us very clearly. Victory should come to us in a very visible form in a very tangible form that we should be able to see it. And we should never face any challenges, any difficulties. But we see that help only comes with sub.

00:14:53--> 00:14:57

And when can you do sub when you're facing a challenge when you're facing a difficulty

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

We see that previously in the solar the Mk 18. Or mentioned who I'm with him, those were humble. Those who accept whatever Allah subhanaw taala commands them. Whatever comes their way, even if it's a difficulty, even if it's a challenge a person does not question over there. All I'm doing so much for the deen Why am I suffering from this difficulty? Why have I fallen sick? Why has this person said this about me? Why am I facing so much opposition? No, Macbeth is the one who just humbles Okay, you want me to face this difficulty accepted?

00:15:32--> 00:15:38

This is who I am with this. And when a person becomes movement, only then he can have fear of Allah.

00:15:39--> 00:15:47

When he has fear of Allah, only then he can continue to do what he should be doing and hence deserve the help of Allah continuously.

00:15:49--> 00:15:53

Further a human creating and how many a city

00:15:54--> 00:16:00

again is a question is actually Estefan but sometimes it also gives a meaning of hover.

00:16:01--> 00:16:15

That how many meanings so many? Forget a min 30th. In how many cities Atlanta we destroyed it. Why? Because what he Alaa Lima. While it was wrong doing it was oppressive.

00:16:16--> 00:16:32

They were doing a lot of injustice. So when the people became busy in their injustice against others, what happened, a loss of panel data destroyed them for how we are done so it has fallen into ruin how we get from the roof address. How well yeah.

00:16:34--> 00:16:39

And how well bait is when a house has been demolished, or when a house is completely empty.

00:16:41--> 00:16:51

And you will see that a house that is deserted parts of it have fallen down. If for example a window is broken, a wall is broken. Why? Because it's empty. nobody's looking after it. It's all

00:16:52--> 00:16:59

so far here how we are done. So it has fallen into ruin and our illusion upon it. rooftops are illusions of Florida.

00:17:01--> 00:17:05

And how we are turned on our Lucia, what does it mean that the roofs have fallen?

00:17:06--> 00:17:18

The buildings have collapsed, the buildings have collapsed and no one has gone do repair the damage to go and fix the houses to go and fix the buildings again.

00:17:20--> 00:17:24

was a bit and well that is more apt Allah that is abandoned

00:17:25--> 00:17:27

maratona from I thought

00:17:29--> 00:17:37

and Apple is when a labor has nothing to do. For example, there is a construction worker. He has nothing to do he cannot find any work.

00:17:39--> 00:17:41

He's just sitting with empty hands.

00:17:42--> 00:17:44

Similarly, I'll play that dilemma.

00:17:45--> 00:17:49

dilemma is when a woman is not wearing any jewelry.

00:17:51--> 00:17:57

Why is it so strange? Because a woman she is supposed to be wearing some sort of Xena.

00:17:59--> 00:18:08

Once the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he saw a woman's hand and that woman had no hand on her hand, nothing. So he said that is the hand of a man or a woman.

00:18:10--> 00:18:18

So we see that a woman she is meant to wear Zenith. Now it doesn't mean that she's displaying her Zenith

00:18:19--> 00:18:46

was what's the rule that we have been given? That when are you within a Xena tahuna they should not expose their Xena. Instead they should cover it. What do we think? Don't wear any Xena don't expose anything. Whereas what do we see the actual rule is that you were Xena but you cover that? So Atilla t Mara is when a woman is not wearing any jewelry at all. No jewelry. This is a toda Tamara.

00:18:47--> 00:18:59

And from this more okpala is something that is inactive. Something that is idle, something that has been deserted. Because which woman would not wear any jewelry?

00:19:00--> 00:19:11

A woman who has been deserted who has no one to please no one to show her beauty. Right? So we're big anymore okpala and the well that has been abandoned.

00:19:12--> 00:19:22

Uh, well, that is inactive, that has been deserted, that is inoperative. Nobody's operating it. nobody's looking after it. Nobody's using it.

00:19:23--> 00:19:39

So how many cities we destroyed while they were wrongdoing. And now if you go and see those places, the houses they have fallen down. The roofs have collapsed. And amongst those houses are also wells that are inoperative.

00:19:40--> 00:19:48

Nobody's coming to take the water out of those wells. And how many were koszalin and palaces that are machines that are lofty.

00:19:49--> 00:20:00

But now they're in ruins. Also is used for a palace for a tower you can say and machine is from the room better seen than that according to one

00:20:00--> 00:20:23

opinion, Rashad is to be very intense to be strong. So personally machines are extremely strong towers, strong buildings, mighty buildings, solid structures, that if you look at their walls, if you look at their roofs, they're so solid, so strong, but you will still find them empty. Nobody's living over there

00:20:24--> 00:20:35

and machine has also been understood to be from the roof heterogeneity that we shade means to plaster something to do the finishing touches of a building.

00:20:36--> 00:20:43

So, for example, when a building has been constructed, what will you do? You will paint it you will plaster it right, you will make the walls fine, you will make the roofline

00:20:45--> 00:21:02

dials are different things are done in order to finish a building. So costly machine palaces that are lofty palaces that are so strong, that are so high, they're so tall, and they're so beautiful in their outward appearance. But we see that they're deserted today.

00:21:04--> 00:21:10

We see that the Arabs especially they would fight a lot over water.

00:21:11--> 00:21:17

Why? Because water was very scarce. Obviously, if people are living in a desert, water is scarce.

00:21:19--> 00:22:03

And literally people would have wars, wars, because there would be a small fight over well, that fight turned into one person murdering another which turned into a try fighting against another tribe, which turned into a war between people. So this is how valuable water sources were. This is how valuable they are. And you can imagine that how much people the fight, how much effort they put in in order to have the perfect dream house. Right? Sometimes people will fight with one another, they will deprive one another of their rights. But we see that all of those buildings that were built

00:22:04--> 00:22:07

all of those wells that were fought over.

00:22:08--> 00:22:11

They are there today. But it's people are gone.

00:22:12--> 00:22:14

There people are gone.

00:22:15--> 00:22:23

So at the end of the day, what is important? Is it these buildings? Is it these houses? Is it this money that is important? What is necessary

00:22:25--> 00:22:32

flock, it's our Eman, it's our mo that is necessary, because at the end of the day, all people will be gone.

00:22:33--> 00:22:41

And these places that will remain eventually even they will be turned into dust. So what will remain our among our actions will remain that will be observed.

00:22:42--> 00:22:48

So in this ayah what is being said that so many nations were destroyed before these people they don't take a lesson

00:22:50--> 00:23:00

and still they will become oppressive towards others. They will deprive others of their rights they will become treacherous What's the use? What's the benefit a person is only harming himself

00:23:02--> 00:23:13

Flm zero Phil are the Have they not traveled in the earth further cornella home so it would be for them kulu born hearts that he RP Luna via they would understand with them?

00:23:14--> 00:23:24

Do they not travel over the earth so that they can see what was the end of the previous people? What Allah subhanaw taala has created in the earth

00:23:25--> 00:23:34

and do they not have hearts with which they can understand? Yaki Luna from the word article What does academic intelligence

00:23:36--> 00:23:42

so they have hearts through which they can understand Oh then on or IRS floor love

00:23:44--> 00:23:46

that yes morona be how they could listen with them.

00:23:47--> 00:23:53

They could listen what with them the news of destruction of the previous people

00:23:54--> 00:24:13

for in the hair for indeed it Leatherman absorb the vision, the eyes, they do not become blind. What is it that actually becomes blind? Well I can but Dharma it becomes blind. What Upolu the hearts, which hearts and Latif so do the ones that are in the chests.

00:24:14--> 00:24:27

Because even if a person is physically blind, if he has a heart that is tender, if he has a heart that is alive, if he has a heart that reflects that he will take a lesson from what he comes across.

00:24:28--> 00:24:34

Then he has ears that can listen and give him warning.

00:24:35--> 00:24:53

He can understand he can take a lesson. But if a person can see with his eyes, but still he does not take a lesson then what good are those eyes? They're of no use. We see that the Companion of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam at 11 o Mcdo. He was blind.

00:24:54--> 00:25:00

Physically he was blind he wasn't able to see but he was more seeing than others.

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

JOHN,

00:25:01--> 00:25:12

he was more seeing than our beliebten obey. Although his eyes were not that sharp, but his heart could understand.

00:25:13--> 00:25:24

His ears would take in the message. This is why his status was much higher then than that of Abuja, one of the linemen obey and their likes.

00:25:26--> 00:25:48

So we see that this is coming right after the previous ayah. What is mentioned in the previous ayah, and at the beginning of this ayah, that you did not travel on the earth and see the end of the various nations, the various people, how they were destroyed, how they came to an end, their places are still there, but the people are gone. Don't people see all of this and take a lesson for themselves?

00:25:49--> 00:26:02

Why not? And we see that even today, there are many people who have such great interest in history, in archaeology, right, they will go themselves to excavate such places

00:26:03--> 00:26:10

to witness what has been excavated, what has been discovered, what has been known of the previous people who exist it.

00:26:11--> 00:26:15

People spend so much time so much after doing all of this research, but what is missing?

00:26:16--> 00:26:17

reflection?

00:26:18--> 00:26:22

What is missing? Taking a lesson that why did this happen?

00:26:24--> 00:26:31

that these people who were so strong, how come? How come the entire civilization was finished?

00:26:32--> 00:26:40

If you look at it from the beginning, till today, there hasn't been one civilization, one nation that has lasted

00:26:41--> 00:26:51

the Roman Empire, it came to an end, the Persian Empire, it came to an end. This is why we need to study history, one nation after the other one dynasty after the other.

00:26:52--> 00:27:00

What does that show to us? So many people came, and so many people left? No, when you study them, you're supposed to take a lesson.

00:27:01--> 00:27:02

And what lesson is that?

00:27:03--> 00:27:09

What lesson is that, that our people cannot thrive? They cannot exist with injustice.

00:27:11--> 00:27:16

And if you are doing the same, then be warned. Be warned, take the warning.

00:27:17--> 00:27:23

And if a person does not take the warning, even if his eyes can see very well, in fact, his heart has gone blind.

00:27:25--> 00:27:45

Because the people of Makkah, we learned that they used to travel for their trade, for their business, and they would come across the ruins of the various people, people of the mood. All of these people they knew very well. But still they would not take a lesson. that these are the people who oppose their messengers, if we oppose our messenger, what would become of us.

00:27:47--> 00:27:55

And the same goes for us as well, that we read in the Quran over and over again. We go to one Museum, we watch one documentary.

00:27:57--> 00:28:07

We learn about one nation after the other, but still, we've remained firm and our actions. We don't think about changing. We don't think about improving.

00:28:08--> 00:28:12

So this is a time where we need to reflect on ourselves and our behaviors.

00:28:13--> 00:28:15

Okay, we listen to the recitation and then we'll continue

00:28:57--> 00:28:59

a coup

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

was he

00:31:26--> 00:31:35

People come and go families come and go nations come and go, we have to see what are we contributing? What are we leaving behind ourselves?

00:31:37--> 00:31:45

What are some what traces are we leaving behind? What are we doing to help the deen have a lot to serve the deen of Allah so that even when we're gone,

00:31:46--> 00:31:48

you know our efforts, they're still benefiting people.

00:31:51--> 00:32:19

If you have a high goal, if you have a big goal, if you want to contribute a lot, if you want to make sure that you help the religion have a line, the best way that you can, then remember that there will be more challenges, there will be more difficulties. Because you see that the prophets of Allah, they had a very IGL they had to deliver the message of Allah to all people, especially Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. But we see that the greater the goal, the greater the difficulties, the greater the challenges.

00:32:20--> 00:32:36

And we see this in all of the scholars of the past as well, that those scholars who are known till today, whose efforts are benefiting people till today, they're the ones who faced a lot of hardship, a lot of persecution.

00:32:37--> 00:32:47

For example, a man Bahati, the work that he compiled, it's benefiting so many people today, over so many generations. But we see that his life was not easy.

00:32:48--> 00:32:49

He suffered from a lot of difficulty.

00:32:51--> 00:32:52

He suffered from poverty,

00:32:53--> 00:33:21

a lot of poverty, hunger. And he suffered from great financial loss as well. You know, that story in which once he was traveling on a boat, and he had some money with him. And this man, when he found that he has so much money, remember how he told him, so that man, all of a sudden, he cried out, I have lost this much money. So everybody began searching for that money. And when a mom Buhari, he learned that this search is going on, he threw that money out of the boat out of the ship into the water.

00:33:22--> 00:33:39

And later on, when that man said to him that, you know, I knew you had all that money, how can the people can find it with you? He said, I got rid of it. He said, Why? Because I could not get my image stained with this accusation that I had committed theft,

00:33:40--> 00:33:51

although I have not committed theft, but I could not allow this to happen to my image that people would remember this about me that he was accused of theft once upon a time.

00:33:52--> 00:34:02

So we see that he suffered from great financial loss. Imagine you have 1000 dinar, or whatever money you have. Imagine you have to get rid of it. Just imagine

00:34:03--> 00:34:05

it's a great loss. It's a great test.

00:34:06--> 00:34:23

Similarly, so many scholars of the past suffered from so much opposition. They were jailed so many times. They were beaten up, physically abused, so that they would give a fatwa that would contradict the Quran and Sunnah. But they refuse to give that fatwa.

00:34:25--> 00:34:27

Even if it meant being beaten up in public.

00:34:29--> 00:34:33

I must have been humbled he suffered from so much opposition, so much persecution.

00:34:34--> 00:34:48

So we see that the greater your goal is, the more you want to help the deen of Allah, the more challenges there will be. But remember that Allah will help you in the way that he will make you successful in what you want to accomplish.

00:34:49--> 00:34:54

This is the help of Allah, that he will make you accomplish what you want to accomplish.

00:34:56--> 00:35:00

We learned in the previous ayat about how Ibrahim alayhis salaam he was commanded to procreate

00:35:00--> 00:35:06

Aim to make the announcement for Hajj and the help of Allah came how that people are still going for her today.

00:35:08--> 00:35:15

Although he didn't see people in his lifetime, perhaps they didn't even see one person a low arland even if there were perhaps only a few people,

00:35:16--> 00:35:29

but we see that till today there are people who go for Hajj at the color who, Ibrahim and Islam. This is the help of Allah, that you do your part Allah who will make you accomplish your mission.

00:35:31--> 00:35:52

We have to take the first step. Ibrahim alayhi salam, he was told to make the announcement he made the announcement and then the help of a lucky What do we want that the ground should be ready for us it should be prepared for us everything should be set up we should just walk into our work and go back home. Everything should be simple for us. But we see that we have to take the first step.

00:35:53--> 00:36:02

If you take the step, Allah's help will come. But if you keep delaying, if you do not take that step, then how will you receive the help of Allah
