00:00:08 --> 00:00:27

I'm thorough Have you not seen have you not considered if you don't know then you should know what should you know what should you see? What should you consider? Okay for how a lot of Allahu Allah has struck meaning ALLAH has given methylene example

00:00:28 --> 00:00:40

which example example of what off Kelly mutton the U button of a word that is the Yuba or a kalima a word that is the Yerba meaning it is good.

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

Good word.

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

Colima, Tampa Yuba what is Cali Matata? UVA? Kelly Melfa yerba. Does anyone know?

00:00:52 --> 00:00:53

Kelly milpa UVA.

00:00:55 --> 00:01:00

The first Calima what is that? La ilaha illa Allah.

00:01:02 --> 00:01:04

How do you know it's like La Ilaha.

00:01:06 --> 00:01:37

How do you know? Kalima? Paiva is La Ilaha illa Allah because that's what you were taught when you were young. Right? That the first column has Kalamata Yeva. Until you by means pure, and what is it calamata UVA La Ilaha illa Allah, meaning there is no God worthy of worship of Allah. And this is really the best statement. If you just think about it. La ilaha illa Allah

00:01:38 --> 00:02:21

there is no God worthy of worship but Allah. Is this a true statement? Yes. It is the most true most accurate statement that can ever be. Is it a beautiful statement? Yes. It is a statement that sets you free Kalama yerba. So what is the example of this good word of this best statement? That Allah subhanaw taala gives its example is cos shedule. Or temple Yuba? Like a tree? That is the Yuba. That is good. Good word. Like a good tree? What is a good tree?

00:02:23 --> 00:02:50

A tree that just looks beautiful? When will it look beautiful? When when also know her fair bit? When it's awful is fair bit what is awful. Foundation, the basis the root of something, the basis of the tree is its root. So the root of this tree is Therby don't serve it meaning firm. What is the root of a tree of a plant firm?

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52


00:02:53 --> 00:03:45

when it's deep, when it's deep. So us Lu her Sabbath. Its root is firm will follow through her. And it's Father Father meaning branches. Its branches are were fifth summer in the sky. Branches are in the sky meaning the tree is also very tall. I want you to imagine a beautiful tree. A good tree. What kind of a tree is it? A shrub? No. What kind of a tree is it? A tree that is barren with no leaves with broken branches with no branches? No. A beautiful tree is a tree that has big, tall, you know it has beautiful branches. It's full, its lush, and that is only possible when it has a firm deep foundation.

00:03:46 --> 00:04:05

So the example of a good word meaning the good word of Eman of la ilaha illa Allah is like that of a good tree. And a good tree is only good when it has deep roots, firm foundation and branches that are tall and high reaching up to the sky.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:30

Now what is this good tree? In a hadith sweeter nudism Bukhari, our beloved or middle to low or new he said that once he was sitting with the Prophet salallahu Salam, and there were also some other companions over there. And in that gathering, the Prophet salallahu Salam asked his companions that tell me about a tree that resembles the believer.

00:04:32 --> 00:04:42

Which tree resembled the believer, a tree the leaves of which do not fall in the summer, nor winter, meaning it is

00:04:44 --> 00:04:55

it is evergreen, and it gives its fruit at all times. Meaning every time the season comes when the tree is supposed to give fruit it gives fruit

00:04:57 --> 00:04:59

by the permission of its Lord. So

00:05:00 --> 00:05:35

The Prophet saw a lot of time asked this question and the Sahaba they gave many answers. They tried this kind of tree, that kind of tree, this tree, that tree. Eventually this, Allah and His Messenger know best, even ermine a little on who he was very young at that time. He was a child. And he thought to himself, I think it's the big palm tree. Because a dead palm tree. It is such that its root is firm, it's really tall branches are reaching up to the sky. It's evergreen. It can withstand the harshest of climates also, and it gives its fruit always.

00:05:36 --> 00:05:39

But if it Rila was too shy to speak,

00:05:40 --> 00:05:42

why was he too shy to speak?

00:05:43 --> 00:05:44

Because he was the youngest.

00:05:46 --> 00:06:19

And so he didn't say anything. And the Prophet saw a lot of Saddam, he said, It is the debt bomb he inocula. So now and everybody went home, even Herman was with his father, a model de la noir new, and he said, You know what, the prophets of Allah Some ask that question. I knew the answer. But I was too shy to speak. And Irwin, a little one who said that if you had given the answer that would have made me very, very happy that you should have encouraged him. But anyway, from this hadith, what do we learn that this idea is explained by the prophets of Allah?

00:06:20 --> 00:07:06

So can you understand the Quran without learning the Hadith? Without learning the Sunnah, you cannot, because the explanation of the Quran is given by Wu Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and Zillah elago they call you to be in Allah NASCI, manos de la la, we have sent the reminder to us so that you explain to the people what has been sent to them. Now, let's look at this idea again. The example of a good word is like a good tree, whose foundation whose root is firm. What is his good word? The good word of Eman because Leila in the lock. What does it mean? Basically, it's your email. It's the faith of the believer. The faith in Allah in history, faith in His Oneness in his

00:07:06 --> 00:08:13

greatness. Right? Where is this firmly rooted? I'll slow her sabot where is it awful? Where is it founded? The heart of the believer? The heart of the believer. So this good tree is firmly rooted in the heart of the believer. Okay, but is it just in the heart? No, we're following through half a summer, its branches are reaching high. Meaning as a result of that deep root of that firm faith. There are also some actions and some words, there will be some action, there will be some good speech. So the foundation of faith is where it is in the heart. But it's proof. It's evidence is wear on the limbs, on the limbs, which is why Amen is not just faith in the heart. That is just one

00:08:13 --> 00:09:06

side of the story. That is just one part of amen. Amen is complete, when the words and the actions conform to that fit. Like for example, if there is the root of a plant, okay, but the stem is cut off. It is cut off from the surface. There is no standards, no branches, there's no leaves, there's no flowers, no fruit, nothing at all. Just the root is there. Would you call that a plant? Would you call that a tree? No, what good is that tree? It's no good. Is it providing any shade? Is it bringing any profit? Nothing? Is it going to be cleaning the air at all? No. When will that route be called a tree when it's complete? And if there is a route somewhere, then that means that definitely

00:09:06 --> 00:09:56

the tree will grow the plant will grow. So likewise Amen. Yes, it is hidden in the heart the roots are there just like the roots are hidden beneath the ground. But there also has to be the tree the effects of that Eman and where are those effects on the actions and on the speech of a person so us who has Avataan will follow her for summer. D O cooler her D it gives meaning this tree this sheduled it gives Ocula its fruit when Kula Hainan every time meaning all year round or every time the tree is meant to give fruit it produces its fruit be in your behalf by the permission of its Lord. Wildly Billa will unfairly nurse and Allah presents examples for the people I love them yet as

00:09:56 --> 00:10:00

a column so that they reflect not to that they learn and move on but they

00:10:00 --> 00:10:19

reflect. So let's reflect on this example, the example of this good tree. Now, from the Sunnah, we learned that this tree is the dead palm. What are the characteristics of the date palm? The dead palm is a very different kind of a tree. It's a very unique tree. It's very different from other trees. First of all, if you look at it, its trunk.

00:10:21 --> 00:10:22

What is the trunk like?

00:10:23 --> 00:10:45

It is straight. It's tall. Okay, it doesn't have branches, you know, one branch here and another branch there another branch there. No, it's like a filler, literally straight without any diversions. And then, at the top, all the branches come out, likewise, is the believer

00:10:46 --> 00:10:56

focused, not afford to put their hand here a hand, they're focused, not a conversation here in a conversation, they're focused.

00:10:58 --> 00:11:45

But what happens with us, we're doing our work. One Tab is open, another tab is open, another tab is open. On one tab, there's a shopping website, another tab, there's a an article and other tab, there's a video, and then what happens we're doing something and we open one time and we switch from there to the other to the other to the other, and that wastes hours, it wastes so much time A believer is focused just like the treat just like the dead pump. Okay. Secondly, we see in the dead pond that its root is deep. It has a very firm root system, a very strong solid root base, which is of different levels. And remember that the deeper the root, the taller the tree is. Now what is the

00:11:45 --> 00:11:50

root it is the Eman the Imen is deep.

00:11:51 --> 00:11:55

You see, we know that the heart is where the man is.

00:11:56 --> 00:12:36

But there are moments when we feel something literally entering our hearts. When we feel that our heart is involved, we're doing something with all our hearts, not just from the surface, but with all our heart. This is who the movement is, whose heart is involved. He does what he does with a conscious intention, with sincerity, with love, with gratitude, feelings of joy of you know, humility, and where all of these feelings experienced in the heart deeply rooted.

00:12:37 --> 00:13:23

And if this Iman is strong, then the action will be strong. Like for example, if you really feel how amazing the Quran is. If you really feel that the Quran has answers, then what will you do just stare at the Quran? What will you do? You can't keep away from it, you will definitely touch it, you will definitely open it you will definitely recite it, you will definitely listen to it. So you see when the root is deep than the action. It comes naturally. It comes easily the foundation is strong. The foundation is deep. Then we see after the root the branches of this debt bomb. How are they?

00:13:24 --> 00:13:31

How are they? They are high really high. But they as a spread out the band law also.

00:13:32 --> 00:13:47

Right? They bend law? If you see it's like an arch almost it's bending down. So yes, the believer actions are good. Above Average, okay. But at the same time there's humility.

00:13:48 --> 00:14:14

At the same time, there's humility. And you see how all the branches are at the same place at the same level. Now that there is one brand here, one branch that no at the same level, there is consistency in the actions of the believer also. Then we see that this tree is evergreen, it's unaffected by the changing seasons, how hot can the desert become? And in the winter, I mean the winds can be quite chilly.

00:14:15 --> 00:14:59

Very, very cold. You know, it's like when you're going to Mecca or Medina. In the winter, you think, Oh, it's a desert. It can never be cold over there. But if you go in the winter, sometimes you will experience those mornings and those nights and even those days when it is so called that the wind is extremely chilly. It's very, very cold. Remember the hijab when the different groups they came and they camped outside Medina, right in order to attack the Muslims and there was a trench because of which they couldn't enter. What is it that finally sent them back home? The cold weather the cold wind, but still it's amazing how this tree survives. It survives the harshest weather even

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

When there is a sandstorm in the desert, it can be so bad that livestock will die, animals will die, people will die. But this tree, it stands tall. It's unaffected by the changing seasons. And likewise is the man of the believer. Yes, there are times when it will become low, but it will not extinguish. It will not die. If the foundation is firm, if the foundation is not firm, then what will happen? Yes, the tree will be uprooted. But the deeper the root is, the more strength the tree has. And the more it can bear the harsh changes, or the harsh seasons, or the harsh circumstances of life, because this life is a test right? All the time we're being tested. Sometimes those tests are

00:15:53 --> 00:16:19

really severe, really harsh. And sometimes people get affected by those situations. And instantly, their faith in Allah is lost their obedience to Allah goes away. But a believer with firm fair, he has stability. He has stability in his life. He's unaffected by the changing seasons. And then we see that the fruit of this tree, what is it?

00:16:21 --> 00:16:33

Okay, soft at a certain stage. Okay, because even when it is hard and crunchy, okay, it still has a specific characteristic. And what is that? It's sweet.

00:16:34 --> 00:16:36

When you see an apple

00:16:38 --> 00:16:41

can you expect that that Apple might not be very sweet?

00:16:42 --> 00:17:08

Yeah, that it may be sour. Yeah, it's possible. Oranges, watermelon, sometimes so sweet and sometimes bland. It's like when you bring a big watermelon home, and you're cutting it, you're just wishing it better be sweet. Because if it's not sweet, we're gonna have a hard time finishing it. But when it comes to dates,

00:17:09 --> 00:17:24

you know that a date will always be sweet. Whether it is from Trinidad or it is from Medina or from California. No matter where that date is from you know that the day is going to be sweet.

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

Ly cool, likewise, is a believer.

00:17:28 --> 00:17:30

Only good can be expected of him.

00:17:32 --> 00:17:33

The stronger the faith,

00:17:34 --> 00:17:36

the better the actions.

00:17:37 --> 00:18:26

Only good can be expected in his speech, in his cooperation, his actions. Some people when you talk to you don't know how they're going to react, they might respond nicely and they might erupt. Right? You don't know what kind of reaction may be expected. But the quality of the believer that we learned from here is that a believer has consistently sweet consistently good natured that no matter what's going on in life, when you come across them inshallah you will find a smile on their face. When you meet them Inshallah, you will hear something good from them. And you see a date. It's not just sweet, it's also very nutritious. It's a source of benefit. Likewise, this is a believer that

00:18:26 --> 00:18:29

you can only expect a good positive reaction from them.

00:18:31 --> 00:19:19

Because a believer, what is he like some Erina wealth are now we hear and we obey. A believer does not abandon his Muslim brother or sister when his Muslim brother or sister is a need isn't help, and he's reaching out for help. The believer will not turn him down, like the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. Whenever he was asked for something, he would never say no for an answer. He would never give no for an answer. If he was not able to help himself. Again, he would not say no, he would suggest something he would send the site elsewhere, that so and so should be able to help you. He would send word to his companions to his wives. Is there anyone who has food anyone who can help

00:19:19 --> 00:19:28

this individual? Because the prophets Allah Lawson would not refuse anybody. He would not refuse. And likewise, as a believer,

00:19:30 --> 00:19:41

he does not refuse. It doesn't mean that he doesn't ever say no. What it means is that he realizes that the other has a need and he wants to help.

00:19:42 --> 00:19:49

If he's able to help himself, he will do that. If he's unable to help himself then He will suggest an alternative.

00:19:51 --> 00:19:54

Because for a believer the problem of another believer is his own problem.

00:19:55 --> 00:19:59

Right? It's his own problem. He puts himself in the shoes of the others.

00:20:00 --> 00:20:05

who is a believer? Leo Minowa Hadoken. Hatha, you humbly obey my humble enough see?

00:20:06 --> 00:20:17

Right. So if he sees that his brother or sister is a need, then he puts himself in their shoes. And he doesn't refuse, he always is a source of benefit.

00:20:18 --> 00:20:27

We see that this tree, no part of it is useless. You might say, Oh, the seeds are useless. No, you know, seeds are quite useful.

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

You know, people actually grind them and make this kind of flower. And they use that

00:20:34 --> 00:20:51

a date at every stage is useful. You get those nice crunchy dates. Okay, I actually found them somewhere in Mississauga, recently, I got a whole bunch, though beautiful, nice and crunchy. And you leave them for a little while that actually turned soft and ripe.

00:20:53 --> 00:21:12

So, this is how the believer is no part of him is useless, every bit of him is useful, beneficial. His words, His actions, his vision mean the way he looks and observes the advice that he gives, beneficial, useful.

00:21:13 --> 00:21:28

And even though this tree, palm tree may be standing alone, and there are times when you see only one tree standing in the middle of the desert, it still survives. So sometimes yes, you have good company, and that is a source of motivation. But other times you're all alone.

00:21:30 --> 00:21:34

At home, you have people to remind you to pray, but at school who's going to tell you

00:21:35 --> 00:21:39

who's going to tell you your heart, if that route is present.

00:21:40 --> 00:21:59

So this is the believer. Let me share with you some Hadith that tell us about the characteristics of the believers. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the believer is not a slender, meaning one who slanders others, nor does he curse others and nor is he immoral or shameless.

00:22:01 --> 00:22:32

The believer is not shameless. He's not immoral, he doesn't curse others. What does it mean? He is a source of goodness he is a source of happiness. He is a source of strength, he is a source of motivation for those who are around him. In another Hadees, we learn he is not a believer who eats to his full while his neighbor is hungry next to him, concern for others, a source of benefit for others. In another Hadith we learn indeed the believer strives with his body and his wealth.

00:22:33 --> 00:22:45

Always giving, contributing, not just taking taking, but giving also giving back. Nothing but good comes from the believer in all situations in all circumstances.

00:22:47 --> 00:22:52

Well, method, Kelley Merton hobby 13 And the example of a Habiba. Calima

00:22:53 --> 00:22:56

of a bad word. What is that bad word?

00:22:58 --> 00:23:46

The opposite of good word. What is the good word of Eman? Leila Illallah What's the opposite of that? Anything that is not La ilaha illAllah. So whether it is hypocrisy or it is scuffle, or it is shit, the bad word? It's example is Khashoggi rotten. kabisa. Didn't like a bad tree. What's the characteristic of the battery? Or the to certain focal? Or do two sets from GM says sir, Jeff just is to build something out to pull it out from the root. So this tree would the segment focal, it is pulled out it is uprooted from the surface of the Earth, meaning it doesn't have a firm foundation. It doesn't have a deep root system. The roots are just barely, you know, under the ground, they're

00:23:46 --> 00:24:27

basically on the surface. Mariela Herman cut off and when the roots are like that, this tree will not have any stability. It will not be stable. For the Arabs, this kind of tree was known as humble. Because the humble tree full of thorns bitter fruit, and the roots were so close to the Earth that it could be uprooted very easily. You know, it's like certain mines. What are they like? They're just on the surface of the earth. Right? So when they're on the surface, it's so easy to just pull them out. And these days I'm sure you have seen this as you go out into your yard. And you see all these strange kind of are so many different kinds of weeds. There are some which are just there on

00:24:27 --> 00:24:59

the surface, you can just easily pull them out. Mariela, Hemant Kumar, and this is hypocrisy. This is weak faith. There is no resolve no confidence on the slightest whiff of misfortune. What happens a person is ready to give up his faith. He blames faith for every problem in his life. Even the slightest of peer pressure, he gives up he loses his deed, and such a person can neither benefit others nor can he work for the deed with this kind of superficial shallow

00:25:00 --> 00:25:07

With an ordinary storm, an ordinary test is sufficient to uprooting mela haven't put up, it doesn't have any stability.

00:25:08 --> 00:25:18

Now we see that the Prophet said a lot is that I'm said, the example of a believer is that of a crop. Imagine a crop. Okay, a field crop,

00:25:19 --> 00:25:24

which the wind continues to toss from one side to another.

00:25:26 --> 00:25:50

The believer is like what a crop, which the wind continues to toss from one side to the other. So at one time, the wind is going from the right side and the plant is the crop is completely bent towards its left, and then what happens the wind blows from the other direction and it's bent to the other side. It is constantly being moved around. affected by what?

00:25:51 --> 00:25:59

by the wind. Okay. In the same way, a believer always receives the strokes of misfortune.

00:26:01 --> 00:26:12

A believer always receives the strokes of misfortune, meaning it's always one problem after another after another, after another.

00:26:13 --> 00:26:19

What with Eman deaths only increase problems only increase. Is that true?

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

You don't think so?

00:26:24 --> 00:26:57

You're very lucky. For a believer what happens? Problems only increase. He barely gets over one test in life that another begins. And he gets over that test that another begins and another begins. This is the life of the believer. He faces a lot of trials in his life. So what is it that keeps him going? What is it that keeps him firm? What it says root? It says Foundation? And what is that? Faith, amen. In Allah.

00:26:58 --> 00:27:14

This keeps him firm. This is what helps him remain patient. This is what helps him deal with life's problems. This is what helps him deal with people in a nice way. Even though there are many big problems in life. He has got all stability.

00:27:16 --> 00:27:19

Each person is tested according to the level of his faith.

00:27:21 --> 00:27:59

So the stronger the faith, the more the tests will be. Okay? And why is it that tests come to make us weaker, not to make us stronger? To make us stronger, these tests come in life. But what happens is that some people, when they're tested, they blame the faith, they blame him and they blame Islam. And instead of becoming stronger, they become weaker. But others as the test comes, they embrace it. And when they embrace it, they become even better than before, even better than before. Their very problems in life become the source of their success.

00:28:00 --> 00:28:19

The problems in life, become the source of their getting closer to Allah subhanaw taala their problems, bring them closer to Allah, their problems, make them better people. Their problems, make them more charitable. Their problems make them more humble.

00:28:20 --> 00:28:25

Their problems make them more caring and concern for others.

00:28:26 --> 00:28:27

This is the believer,

00:28:28 --> 00:29:01

and the one whose faith is weak, then the slightest problem is enough to uprooting and so instead of becoming stronger through that trial, he becomes weaker and the little faith that he had is completely lost. Well, Martha Luca limited Kavita 10 Khashoggi Ratan Kabita. In another Hadees, we learned the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, a believer has been created such that he will be put in many trials, a believer has been made such that he will be put in many trials overnight depressing you here.

00:29:02 --> 00:29:38

Okay, but the thing is, this is a fact of life. This is a fact of life. You know, every year you hope that things will become better in one way or another. Yes, they do seem to improve at one level. But as they're improving, you see that there's other kinds of tests that are also increasing. I can tell you as a mother, you know, every month I realized that my children are going through one phase and after a month, I see all Hamdulillah that phase is over. But then I see another phase has become another problem has started. So a believer has been created such that he will be put in many trials.

00:29:39 --> 00:29:59

And the believer is off preventing. He keeps turning to Allah because of these tests that we remember Allah right. If these problems did not happen, how old were you remember Allah so these problems and whether a blessing look at the life of use of renesola How can we forget his life off repenting off returning to Allah and very

00:30:00 --> 00:30:12

forgetful. The believer has been made very forgetful, meaning he will forget and make mistakes. But when he is reminded he accepts admonition.

00:30:13 --> 00:30:23

When he is reminded, he accepts that advice. He listens, he obeys. He doesn't remain stubborn. He has that humility.

00:30:25 --> 00:30:54

Now, I want you to go back to the AI about the believer, because now we have two comparisons over here, two kinds of Kalama, two kinds of trees, two kinds of characters, two kinds of people, one person, he has faith, he is deeply rooted grounded in his faith. And because of that, tall and higher reaching up to the sky. So we see that the believer connected to the earth, but at the same time reaching up to the sky.

00:30:55 --> 00:31:29

You know, he's connected to the world, the life that he's living, the people that he's around, but at the same time, he has a very strong connection with who, with Allah subhanaw taala. He takes his liver nutrition from the earth. But he also takes his li that nutrition from the sky, meaning divine guidance. He's connected at both levels. We think that a righteous believer a good believer is someone who doesn't know other people doesn't know anything. He just says Allah Allah all day long. But what do we see?

00:31:30 --> 00:31:43

Our slow Ethambutol we're following through Hafiz summer. Yes, his feet are here. He's living here in this earth on this world, but his heart is where? Elsewhere.

00:31:45 --> 00:32:21

Yes, strong connection with people and a strong connection with Allah subhanaw taala also, and then we see that this tree is taking from the earth, but it's also giving fruit it's taking, and it's giving. And this is what life is about. You benefit from others. But you must benefit others also. Not that we just use other people, and never thank them or never give them back in any way. No, you take and you give. You take and you give. And you see this process of taking and giving. What does that do to the tree?

00:32:22 --> 00:32:23

Makes the tree small.

00:32:24 --> 00:32:28

Makes the tree bigger and taller and stronger than before.

00:32:30 --> 00:32:48

Sometimes we think oh no, I'm not gonna accept any favor from anybody. Because if I accept a favor, I have to show a favor. You are a human being you're needy. You're incomplete. You need others. So okay, you take from them, but you also give them and this is what will make you stronger.

00:32:50 --> 00:33:44

When methodically within kabisa 10 cache the rotten Kavita that's sitting there on the ground, not taking not giving so shallow easily uprooted. Would you to submit vocal or mela min Cara? You submit Allahu Allah makes stable Allah gives stability to who? Alladhina amanu those who believe Bill cola tablet with the firmware. Allah give stability to the believers? Through what through the firm word? What is the firm word, the firm Word of Faith? Where is it firmly rooted in the heart? So it is that strong Iman, that commitment, you know, this promise of faith, which is firmly rooted in their heart, Allah subhanaw taala because of that firm commitment, Allah makes them strong also. Allah

00:33:44 --> 00:34:00

gives them stability, where filha to dunya and the life of this world will fill Africa and also in the hereafter. So what do we see if our iman is strong? We show our commitment. We fulfill our commitments than Allah. His help will also come.

00:34:01 --> 00:34:13

Allah's help will also come you submit Allahu Lalita Amma no bill Colas debit Phil higher to dunya. You see, the Sahaba of the long run. Their lives were very difficult.

00:34:15 --> 00:34:33

But at the same time, they were so successful. They reached out so far and wide. They accomplished so much in their lives. Why? Because they had Allah's help. Okay, they had Allah's help. But why is it that they got Allah's help because they were committed to the deen

00:34:34 --> 00:34:43

they were true to their word. If they promised to do something, they did it. Remember the Battle of

00:34:44 --> 00:34:48

the Battle of what happened? When the Muslims were leaving Medina?

00:34:50 --> 00:35:00

What happened? 300 Whenever clean, what did they say? Or you know what the prophets of Allah is and don't accept our advice. So we're going back so they went back to Medina with Abdullah bin Oba.

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


00:35:01 --> 00:35:08

And the rest of the Muslims. What did they do? They went along the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and yes, they fought the battle.

00:35:09 --> 00:35:17

This was what their commitment. They said to the Prophet sallallahu sallam, we will support you, we will obey you, we will listen to you.

00:35:19 --> 00:35:20

And they did it.

00:35:21 --> 00:35:31

They fulfilled their commitment, even though things became very, very difficult. Later on the expedition to the book, was it easy?

00:35:32 --> 00:35:46

No, it wasn't easy. There were times when people had to slaughter their camels. Literally, open up the guts and take out the water that was stored inside the camel imagine and drink that in order to survive.

00:35:47 --> 00:35:55

Just imagine that people would be living on debts, they would eat only debt. That's all they had.

00:35:56 --> 00:36:13

So many people will chair one camel, meaning they will take turns in order to sit on the camel. Most of the time they were walking so much so that their feet they were covered with blisters, their shoes, their sandals were ripped apart, because they had to walk so much.

00:36:15 --> 00:36:20

And you know how the weather was it was extremely hot. So it was horrible give up over there.

00:36:21 --> 00:37:15

No, they showed commitment, a cola Sabbath. Why? Because they had firm faith and because of that they proved their commitment. And what happened? Allah subhanaw taala gave them stability also. He gave them stability. He kept them firm on Islam, such that when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away, the Sahaba they were firm on their faith firm. Like always, they didn't lose their faith. So you submit Allah will Latina ama No, Bill cola said Phil hired dunya in the life of this world, but also Phil waffle era in the hereafter also, the hereafter begins with death. The first stages were in the grave. I shall glow on her. She wants her to the Prophet salallahu Salam, O Messenger of

00:37:15 --> 00:37:31

Allah, this nation, meaning this ummah will be tested in the grave. All of us people of this ummah, we're going to be questioned in the grave, our test will begin in the grave. She said, What will happen to me? I'm a weak woman.

00:37:32 --> 00:37:35

I'm a weak woman, just a girl.

00:37:36 --> 00:38:20

How can I answer those scary looking angels in the grave all alone in that darkness? How will I survive what will happen to me? The prophets of autism said you said bit Allahu Allah Dena Ave will call the Sabbath will hire to dunya. overfill Allah will give firmness and stability so that at that time the believer will be able to respond to the angels, he will be able to pass that test. And we learned in another Hadith that the Prophet said a lot of Saddam said, when the deceased or one of you is buried, and his companions disperse, the person dies to give him a bath, the shroud him, the prey is janazah they bury him, and they cover his grave with dust and then what happens? They go

00:38:20 --> 00:38:21


00:38:22 --> 00:38:31

His companions, they go home, they disperse. And when that person is lying alone in the grave, an angel with a mace in his hand.

00:38:32 --> 00:38:36

So an angel with a weapon

00:38:37 --> 00:38:43

comes to Him in the grave, and makes that men sit makes that person sit.

00:38:44 --> 00:38:48

The angel says, What do you say about this man?

00:38:50 --> 00:39:39

If the dead person if he was a believer, he will say I bear witness that there is no God worthy of worship but Allah, and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is a servant and His messenger. So the angel says, You have spoken the truth. And then a door to the fire is opened up for him. And the angel says, this would have been your destination, had you denied your Lord, but because you believed, therefore, this is your home and a door to Jana is opened. And at that time, that person tries to reach out to that door and enter Jannah. But the angel says James stay here and his grave is expanded for him. No one the Sahaba they heard all of this one man. He said O Messenger of Allah.

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

Any person before whom this angel would come bearing a mess in his hand would be overcome by fear.

00:39:48 --> 00:39:59

Any person who sees an angel like this, first of all, an angel and secondly, an angel with a big weapon, who sees as he's going to be overcome by fear? How cool is it that a person can give all these answers? How does that

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

person can remain calm in that situation. The Prophet said a lot is on him said, Allah keeps firm those who believe with the firm word you submit Allah who in Medina Bill cola Sabbath will hire to dunya waffle.

00:40:15 --> 00:40:42

But it is, you see, whatever we do now that is what will be reflected in the acapella if we firmly believe in Allah soprano, and we obey Him their steadfastness in our obedience, there's stability in our good deeds, if we have confidence in our Eman. Now we are at peace with our iman. Now we have trust in Allah now.

00:40:43 --> 00:40:46

Only then we can have firmness and stability in the grave.

00:40:47 --> 00:41:18

Because what we do now will be reflected later. It cannot be that a person doubts Allah and in the grave all of a sudden, he has that calmness. No, it is when in the tasks of this life in the state of extreme pain and agony in the state of fear. A person turns to Allah, you know, like Yunus artist center, in the belly of the fish, in the depths of darkness. Who did he turn to? Who did he remember? Allah subhanaw taala.

00:41:19 --> 00:41:41

And you see, when a person is in trouble, when a person is going through pain, then his reality is exposed the true faith that is exposed. If he believes in Allah, then he will reach out to Allah he will call upon Allah in pain, he will not say Mom, doctor, who will he call upon Allah.

00:41:42 --> 00:41:47

And when he will call upon Allah Now, then Allah will give him stability later.

00:41:49 --> 00:42:07

So the more we remember Allah, the more we love Allah, the more help we will have from Allah now and later. The more we befriend him, the more he will befriend us. The more we turn to Him, He will help us.

00:42:08 --> 00:42:37

You submit Allahu Lilina Ermanno Bill Colas sabut Phil here to dunya Woodfill Akela where you will Allah has Lolly me and Allah lets the wrongdoers go astray. He lets them go astray meaning he doesn't help them. Why? Because he's wrongdoers. They don't want Allah's help. They don't turn to Him lamp on Allahu Masha and Allah does whatever He wills at the end the ultimate decision is his recitation of these verses please.
