00:00:31--> 00:00:33

my respective brothers, my sisters in Islam.

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

Today is a beautiful Saturday night.

00:00:38--> 00:00:40

Where would you be if you were not here?

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

Where would you be if you were not here?

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

Which pub

00:00:48--> 00:00:51

which disco? which party

00:00:53--> 00:00:54

and it happens to be Easter

00:00:56--> 00:01:00

if not the pubs and discos and parties then which church?

00:01:02--> 00:01:08

Which temple? which God? What would you be worshiping panela

00:01:10--> 00:01:11

my brothers, my sister Islam.

00:01:13--> 00:01:20

the companions of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam gave the most pigment image of ship,

00:01:22--> 00:01:28

saying Glory be to Allah who has guided us to this religion. Before in the days of the past,

00:01:29--> 00:01:50

we used to make Gods out of food. The companion said, unauthentic narration they said, The when they used to have a harvest of dates, they used to make the gods from the dates. So they used to pile up the dates and make a God out of it. And then they would bow and worship and call upon the God. When they were hungry, they would eat it.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

They used to eat the gods

00:01:56--> 00:01:57

Alhamdulillah for the blessings of Islam

00:01:59--> 00:02:45

Alhamdulillah for the blessings of the Hades Alhamdulillah that Allah subhanho wa Taala has given us, Allah and His remembrance Alhamdulillah if it was not for this, but Allah, which God where would we be what would we be worshipping Subhana Allah. My brothers in Islam, even Tamia Rahim Allah He said in that beautiful, amazing statement, remembrance of Allah is like to the hearts just like water is to the fish. What happens to the fish when it is taken out of water? In the same way what Allah is removed from our hearts, there is no peace in our souls. There is no peace will lie in the heart of the person who does not beat every single day his heart for the sake of Allah subhanho wa

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

Taala there is no peace in the heart and the soul of that human being that has no Islam. He is like the walking and talking corpse he is dead before he actually will die. Such as a person who has no remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:03:02--> 00:03:49

my brothers and sisters, it is for this reason why Allah subhanho wa Taala has reminded us again and again in the Quran to remember him. Allah tells us and reminds us again and again in the Quran to remember Allah azza wa jal only, and he tells us Allah, Allah, Allah pillow, is it not by remembering Allah azza wa jal that the hearts find rest. And we find in the examples of those companions, and in those are the greatest of the people that had disobeyed Allah, a earnestness in their hearts when they disobeyed Allah. Take the example of the noon, the Sahaba Huth, the person who was given the whale, who am I talking about Yunus in the matter, Allah hisako salam, Yunus if

00:03:49--> 00:04:30

the matter was a prophet of God, who had disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah told him to stay with his people until they believed or he perished. And he disobeyed Allah and he got angry with the people because people didn't believe so he ran away. He went away he boarded a ship, and then he was overthrown from the ship because the ship was about to sink they wanted to throw things out. So the three of you know Sally Soto Salah, what does Allah say about him? Look at how Allah says was the nguni is the Hubba Movavi been for one Allah Nakata Allah He Sana fieldview Luma to Allah

00:04:31--> 00:04:32

Subhana

00:04:34--> 00:04:59

Allah me, your Salah, and the unknown, the Sahaba the companion or the whale, when he went away from his people ran away from his people mahadi been in anger for one rally and he thought that we would not catch him for another few Zuma. So he called out in the belly of the whale, in the depths of the darkness of the whale, Allah ilaha illa Anta there is

00:05:00--> 00:05:24

no God but Allah in the conterminous salimi. Verily I was from the wrong doors. It was reported that the Malaya Salatu was Salam. And his wife, our Mother, how are Allah salatu wa sallam? Both of them when they disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala that the mother who Salatu was Salam cried for 70 years.

00:05:25--> 00:05:49

He cried for 70 years, because he had disobeyed Allah subhanho wa Taala. Can you imagine being in Jannah? Can you imagine seeing the angel scene Jen and Johanna and then disobey Allah and knowing how shameful the DEA that you just did? And so his heart was softened, and he cried and cried for 70 years, because it is available as

00:05:50--> 00:05:51

my brother and sister in Islam.

00:05:53--> 00:06:39

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, truly soften his heart for the cause of Allah azza wa jal in the same way as these people, as these righteous people who sin but came back to Allah azza wa jal in the same way. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in every single aspect of his life, knew how to come back to Allah with his heart before anything else. We know that the prophet SAW Selim gibreel Elisa, Ceylon came down to him, grabbed him told him to read. Then, the Prophet says Silla in a state of bewilderment. He ran to his wife, saying some illusionism a loony Cover me up, cover me up. Then what happened? What happened was Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed to him a couple

00:06:39--> 00:06:42

of verses. Yeah, you have Muslim mill,

00:06:43--> 00:07:24

or the one who was wrapped up in garments to mill Laila in kalila. Stay and stand up the night in prayer except for a bit misfire. Who Alan koosman who kalila half of it or less than half hours is the LA he or increase more than half were up till Khurana de la and recite the Quran beautifully. In sanuki Allah Conan's tequila, we will reveal to you I have your word. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam stood for 23 years, giving Islam his blood, his sweat and his tears every single time any challenge came to him. What was his answer?

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

Villa Villa, give the coolness of my heart My coolness my eyes in prayer. His enemies were in front his Muna 14 when the back yard Villa Where are you give the call to prayer. His wife passed away his uncle passed away his children passed away. Yeah, Villa de Sala. He was thrown out his companions were thrown out the companions are dying in the battle. What did he say? Yeah, Bella Reina de Sala nothing to eat except the two black ones, the dates and the water your beloved Ariana de sala

00:08:01--> 00:08:06

de la sala. Such was our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.

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

With prayer the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam would link with Allah azza wa jal with Salah our Prophet sallallahu would find this peace. When was the last time we found peace in our Salah. When was the last time we complain to Allah instead of complaint to anyone else? in the school bus we were Hosni in Allah. Verily a complaint of my of my problems and my worries only to Allah azza wa jal. Let me give you an example of how Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam connected with Allah in the authentic hadith in Sahih Bukhari and Sahih Muslim Abdullah Shaquille radi Allahu taala and he said that I entered upon Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam whilst he was praying and I saw

00:08:55--> 00:09:40

that his beard was dripping wet, as if a bucket of water had been poured on his head, as if a bucket of water had been poured on his head, and his beard was dripping wet from crying from the fear of Allah azza wa jal. Yes, Allah can you imagine that? Our prophet SAW Selim crying so much for the fear of Allah? Can you imagine that? In the authentic hadith for the for the Allahu taala, who said, I prayed with Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in the middle of the night. And he in the first rockler he recited Surah Baqarah Surah Al Imran and Surah Nisa and he stopped at every verse when Allah mentions Jana and he asked Allah Allah let me antigen and he started every verse of jahannam.

00:09:40--> 00:09:59

And he said, Yeah, Allah saved me from john. every verse your Salaam, six to seven hours of praying at night, and in the morning jihad in the cause of Allah, with no food to eat, nothing to drink, and fasting for three to four days at a time. Such was our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:10:01--> 00:10:21

Such as a prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, Ayesha de Allahu taala said I found I woke up in the middle of the night and I searched around for the prophesy salah and I my hands touched his feet whilst he was praying and he was saying in his touch the following go out what is it that he was saying?

00:10:22--> 00:11:11

Allahumma in the dark I mean Sadek. Oh Allah I seek refuge in your good mercy and your goodness from your anger will be more effort becoming robotic, and in your forgiveness from your punishment. Well to be coming and seek refuge in You from you, la or Santa Ana lake. I cannot praise you adequately under coma athenee tala enough sick you are as you appraise yourself, look at the way the Prophet says and praise Allah. Look at the way his heart went out to Allah. Look at the way how he was doing it purely without telling his wife sincerely between him and Allah azza wa jal alone in the authentic hadith even above what the Allahu taala and who he narrated that he once played Rasulullah

00:11:11--> 00:11:57

sallallahu alayhi wa sallam at the middle of the night. And the prophets are Silla made the following don't listen to the DA it is well like not the words of someone except a prophet of God. Listen to how Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam called out to Allah. And imagine when was the last time you called out to ally in the same way? La ilaha illa Allah there is no God but Allah, Allah Houma our Lord antoniou sama, or the woman fee when you are the light of the heavens and the earth and whatever is in between, luckily for you is praise and refer through somato are the one man fee when you are the Originator of the heavens and the earth and that which is in it lachelle has done for us

00:11:57--> 00:12:24

praise antiqua You must summon what you will or the woman fee when you are the supporter and the nourish and cherisher and Sustainer of the heavens and the earth and that which is in it. One little ham and for you is praise Allah whom Allah Houma and Allah you are the truth will come up and your statement is true. Well why do people have any promises true? Well, Jenna to heart and Jana is true when

00:12:26--> 00:12:38

the fire is true. When not the unit, and the profits are true, when Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Huck and Mohammed Salah Salim is true Allahumma Allahumma he believed in you

00:12:41--> 00:12:44

and upon you I have put my trust what we like

00:12:45--> 00:12:48

what you like and to your judgment I have submitted

00:12:49--> 00:12:54

in a kasasa and to you I complain severely maka

00:12:56--> 00:12:59

Forgive me that which I've done in the past and what I've had to do

00:13:02--> 00:13:05

and that which I've done publicly and that which I will do in secret.

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

fulfill the market.

00:13:11--> 00:13:16

Woman Talamini and that which you know more about me than me.

00:13:18--> 00:13:19

Until mocha, until

00:13:20--> 00:13:26

you are the first and you are the last La Ilaha Illa and there is no god but you

00:13:27--> 00:13:51

This is how our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam pursued the pleasure of Allah azza wa jal by praising him and worshiping Him show worshipping him in a way but Allah that no one could ever do your Salah, and this is how his heart connected with Allah subhanho wa Taala It is for this reason why the scholars the past they used to say be wary of the magic of this dunya for it is worse the magical haruta marut

00:13:52--> 00:14:06

The whereas the magical haruta Maru these were two angels sent to Babylon to teach people black magic they used to separate between the husband and his wife. The magic of this dunya separates between a slave and his Lord and his creator.

00:14:08--> 00:14:17

how devastating is the magic of this dunya that takes us away from Allah azza wa jal how devastating is the magic of this dunya takes us away from the remembrance of Allah azza wa jal

00:14:18--> 00:14:25

so devastating is the magic of this dunya as the scholars have said, that the heart of the believer are like two scales.

00:14:26--> 00:14:59

One scale you have love for this dunya and the other scale you have love for the author of when the love for the dunya becomes heavy, the love for the author becomes light. Everyone will love for the Africa becomes heavy than the love for the dunya becomes like your salon such as such as our hearts panela we cannot love the dunya and the hereafter equal. If we love one, the other one will decrease in its love. If we love the other, the other one decreases. My brothers in Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to love to ask

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

There's a Sahaba to recite the Quran to him so he could contemplate on the verses Allah subhanho wa Taala in the authentic hadith Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam asked even miss Rudra the Allahu taala know to recite the Quran to him. So even Masuda the Allahu taala who recited the Quran that he came to the verse on where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, The kafer either jednom in Coolio Mateen bisha, hidden

00:15:26--> 00:15:43

because Allah Allah is shahida and how will it be, oh Muhammad Rasul Allah, when we bring forth from every oma witness against them, and we bring you as a witness over all of mankind. And so the prophets have said, Enough Enough, and he could not stop himself from crying.

00:15:45--> 00:16:27

In the authentic hadith of Jabba radi Allahu Allah, Allah Allah who is a Muslim of the Hajj of Rasulullah sallallahu sallam, it was reported that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was saying the bake Allahumma bake labella Sheree Kala Kala bake the whole tell me all the way from the macaque all the way to Makkah, whilst his beard was wet with tears with every single word he was crying with every single tell via the prophets are seldom understood its meaning understood what it meant. And but Allah His heart was going out to Allah azza wa jal remembering the implications of the Tobia. My brother's Islam This is the way our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was in the

00:16:27--> 00:17:10

authentic narration in Bukhari, the prophets Allah Salaam, Abu Bakr and Omar came out of their house, only to find the prophet SAW Selim walking up and down in the middle of the night. He was walking up and down in his outside his house in the middle of the night. So Abu Bakr and Omar went to ask for Sula, Yasuda Is everything okay? You look really, really worried. What's wrong? What did the prophets Some say? He said, will lie. There's a big receiver. What's the most evil rasulillah What's the mercy but tell us? He said Well, after Salah I went home, and when I went home, after I went home, I was about to sleep. And near my bed next to my bed I found one date, one date, a single

00:17:10--> 00:17:25

date and the date I will love it I cannot remember whether this date is a date of sadaqa or charity or Zakat, which is haram for the nabin to eat? Or was it a date that was given to me as a gift?

00:17:26--> 00:17:41

And so will lie. This is what has caused me to be anxious. Can you imagine a single date of a prophet who Allah had forgiven all his past and his future sins, that he walks around, unable to sleep for a single day?

00:17:43--> 00:17:44

For a single day,

00:17:46--> 00:18:02

such as Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam, such as the prophets are seldom in his fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is how our Prophet system connected with Allah and when Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam connected with Allah, and remember, adored Allah, Allah adored him back.

00:18:03--> 00:18:41

You see Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those who love Him. Allah loves those who love Him. Allah loves those who fear Him. So Allah subhanho wa Taala adored Rasul Allah says, Allah, let me show you how. Number one, the first thing Allah says, what a crock we have. Elevated you're mentioned Allahu Akbar. How if someone just believes in Allah, but not in Rasulullah sallallahu he can never be a Muslim. If someone says La ilaha illAllah but doesn't say Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam he can never be a Muslim, or a foreigner Anika the Quran we have raised you mentioned

00:18:42--> 00:19:19

what a final secret Look. Look at the next verse, where Allah subhanho wa Taala says, What is offered Allahu mitaka Nabina Lama to come in Kitab in Hekmat in Sumatra, rasuluh Masada Kalima comm let me know number one uttanasana What is this verse? Did you know that Allah has taken the covenant of every single prophet that came to this earth? every prophet 124,000 prophets Allah sent to this earth, every one of them Allah took a promise from them, that they will believe in Rasulullah Selim, if the Prophet was meant to come in their time,

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

amazing,

00:19:22--> 00:19:59

amazing 100 even even even as a man into the slum, the very first Prophet, Allah took a covenant from him. That part of the covenant of being a prophet is that if Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam comes in your time, let me know Nabil you must believe in Him Wollaton soon and you must help him. It is for this reason why asuci Rahim Allah He says the greatest Sahaba the greatest hobby is not Abubakar. The greatest hobby is not Abubakar. There's someone even greater than him. Who is the companion of Rasulullah Salam

00:20:00--> 00:20:45

Is it? It is Jesus Christ. It is a solid sort of Salaam who will come on the last day and he will have to believe in Rasulullah Selim, otherwise Allah will not accept anything from him, he will have to say la ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah and he will die upon that. And by Allah He will be a companion of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So, the greatest of the companions, not Abu Bakar it's another, it's another prophet of God. Can you imagine that? So when our prophets Islam, adored Allah, Allah adored him back. Look at how Allah protected the right of Rasulullah Salah against the lives of people said, What did Allah say? Allah says, about his eyesight said what? masaharu hamata

00:20:46--> 00:20:55

his eyesight did not deviate, nor did he ever actually actually see a lie. merkabah Damara, his heart did not lie about what it saw.

00:20:57--> 00:21:10

So Allah subhanho wa Taala is protecting the right of Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam over here to be the speaker of truth, and telling us all that the Prophet system did not lie about what he saw. His heart did not lie about what it what it saw as well.

00:21:11--> 00:21:12

My brother's Islam.

00:21:14--> 00:21:34

On the day of judgment, Allah subhanho wa Taala will give Rasulullah Salah makara Mahmoud, which is the ability to make intercession on behalf of all of mankind on behalf of all of mankind, this ability to intercede on behalf of them. And this is on account of Allah subhanho wa Taala adoring Rasulullah Salah.

00:21:35--> 00:22:18

In the authentic narration. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said for me is Allah sila. For me the highest station in paradise. The greatest reward is for me in the Day of Judgment. Allah sila which is the highest station in Paradise, the highest of all for those, the prime number one position who says that there is no suitable assessor. Why? Because Allah subhanho wa Taala adored him so much. In authentic narration. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam kept on asking Allah kept him asking Allah for more and more and more until until Allah subhanho wa Taala said, I will make the majority of the people of general your oma and that is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam

00:22:18--> 00:23:00

said we are the last of the oma but the first to enter gender. Last the nations were the first to enter gender. Why not? Because we have done anything extraordinary. No, like our number of Salawat does not equal to the number of Salawat of the believers at the time of new Allah usato Salah they live for 950 years they had longer time to worship Allah, our number of a bad day and Salama does not compare to them. But But Allah on account of the greatness of the love for Rasulullah sallallahu Sallam and Allah adoring Rasul Allah says Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala gave him this reward. Why am I telling you all of this? I'm telling you all of this, because

00:23:01--> 00:23:29

because what Allah, I don't want anyone to walk out of here, except to make a firm resolve and it's hard to also come back to Allah azza wa jal, just like the prophets, Islam came back to a Muslim woman. Hands up brothers and sisters, those who either feel right now or have once in their lifetime, or at some time in their life, felt like Allah subhanho wa Taala doesn't like them.

00:23:30--> 00:24:05

Or Allah so far away, hands up. Show me your hands. People who feel like they're so far away from Allah, right? I know, all of us feel the same way. All of us have some time or the other. Felt like Allah subhanho wa Taala so far away from us. Like he's forgotten us. Like he doesn't like us. How can we pursue the pleasure of Allah subhanho wa Taala when we feel we're so far away from Allah subhanho wa Taala Let me tell you, how have you ever read the seal of the surah in the Quran? What the hell?

00:24:06--> 00:24:09

The greatest, the greatest

00:24:10--> 00:24:32

antidote to depression. The greatest way to feel good in your heart, is to read the surah of the heart. Because it is the most amazing surah in the Quran, that tells you to be positive and to feel good about Allah azza wa jal Shall I tell you the meaning of the heart, in a way that perhaps you've not heard before.

00:24:33--> 00:24:50

Surah Taha was revealed at a time when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam did not receive the revelation from Allah subhanho wa Taala for six months. For six months, the prophet system did not receive any revelation from Allah gibreel didn't come down he didn't see a dream.

00:24:52--> 00:24:54

You know, there was a time when I used to see a lot of good dreams.

00:24:56--> 00:25:00

And then these days when I'm busy with my submission, I'm so tired. My brain is sort

00:25:00--> 00:25:42

Tired actually don't see dreams. Sometimes I don't feel like my soul or my body is actually making an impact on my heart and on my life. So I feel quite disconnected from Allah azza wa jal. Do you get that feeling sometimes guys, brothers sisters, yes. Sometimes you feel like it's not affecting me. It's like Allah is not responding to me. He's not talking to me. I don't see good dreams anymore. I don't get the shiver down my spine anymore. I'm not feeling the pleasure anymore What's going on? In the same way for six months, the profitsystem did not receive any revelation from jabril coming down all the way to a dream or nothing at all for six months. And so the prophecies

00:25:42--> 00:25:50

are seldom thought that Allah subhanho wa Taala hates him. He thought Allah subhanho wa Taala does not want him as a newbie anymore.

00:25:51--> 00:25:53

So all these thoughts were coming in his mind.

00:25:54--> 00:26:21

Isn't that right? When we start thinking the same? Some of us are thinking oh my god, Allah must hate me. Look at my life, Allah must really not want me. Look at the situations my circumstances. I must be a wretched, downtrodden human being. Allah doesn't care anything at all, Allah mustn't even care about my dog. Sometimes these thoughts come to your mind. This is how the profitsystem was when the surah was revealed. So what did Allah say? Allah said, walk

00:26:23--> 00:26:42

by the sun, and the morning in its blazing glory. What the Ha? So first thing that you tell someone who's depressed, wake up, see the sunlight. It's not all Doomsday. It's not all doom and gloom. is a beautiful sun out there beautiful light was

00:26:43--> 00:26:44

one lady.

00:26:46--> 00:27:04

And by the night as it envelops The second problem with people who are depressed is the stay up the nights they go to sleep in the morning the sleep stay up at night. So everything is Do me and gloomy. They have a bad sleep wake pattern. well lately either as a job and the by the night as it gives comfort.

00:27:05--> 00:27:26

Ma dakara bukoba Makana Allah does not hate you or Muhammad. Allah doesn't hate us. Allah doesn't hate you Mohammed nor has he forgotten you. In the same way. Your Abdullah Yamato Allah, Allah doesn't hate you. And Allah has not forgotten you, ma kerabu Kama, Kama

00:27:27--> 00:28:03

Sutra to Pharaoh la kameena Lula, and indeed the hereafter will be far better for you than this dunya what is coming is going to be far better for you than what situation you're in now. When to hire una kameena Walla Walla, so far you are Utica rabuka fatorda and very soon, Allah will give you a massive reward and he will make you happy very soon or muslimeen. Allah will give us Jenna inshallah, and make us happy. Very soon Allah will give us a victory from all of this and make us happy. Very soon. Well, a sofa

00:28:05--> 00:28:12

Allah has promised this and of assurity very soon, very soon we'll go to July shala very soon.

00:28:13--> 00:28:20

Isn't this the most beautiful thing to say to a person who feels bad in his heart? Then Allah gives him reasons to believe this. What does he say?

00:28:21--> 00:28:46

Allah Mujica team and for our he gives people reasoning so that you believe this? He says Allah Mujica team and they do not find you an orphan and look after you. Ask yourself once you very sick sometimes once your little boy in law looked after you when you were little girl, no one to care for you. And Allah looked after you. I love egta team and for our

00:28:47--> 00:28:51

soccer ball and for her that we find him misguided if we guide you.

00:28:53--> 00:29:06

What we misguided brothers and sisters before we became practicing, I know I never used to pray myself. I never knew but my Dean. Didn't Allah find me misguided and guide me. In the same way once you misguided in Allah guide you?

00:29:10--> 00:29:31

Didn't Allah subhanho wa Taala find you poor in need of wealth and didn't Allah give you wealth? How many of us came to Australia we never had any money? How many of us but Allah, Allah subhanho wa Taala had mercy on us pity on us and He made us wealthy. How many of us Allah subhanho wa Taala looked after us, when by law families still are struggling back home.

00:29:32--> 00:29:57

What will Jessica illan so Allah gives more and more reasoning to Rasulullah sessemann to us, reminding us again and again. Why you should believe everything else that Allah has said his promises that will come true. So to the depressed person, this is the best way to reason by telling him about the past and giving him reason to believe that Alas, promises will come true just like it did in the past.

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

Then Allah gives the antidote

00:30:00--> 00:30:44

Depression. Do you know what it is? The depressed person is more concerned about himself. But the best way to remove depression and this feeling of being disconnected with Allah is to remember those people who are far far in more difficulty than you. For Amalia Thema Allah Akbar, Allah continues and says, and so the orphan Do not be hard on him. Well, I must say in a forgotten her, and the one who asks you do not say no to him. So Allah tells us remember two types of people. The first is an orphan. The number two is a beggar. Remember the orphans they have no one to look after you have parents to look after you. You have family to look after you somewhere to go home. The orphans have

00:30:44--> 00:30:45

nobody

00:30:47--> 00:31:15

in the beggar, he has no food. He's asking you for food. He goes to sleep hungry every day Allah has given you food. How many of us has ever gone to sleep hungry? Subhan Allah. So Allah tells us the antidote, which is to look at people below us. Family, Athena Fela, takamasa illa forgotten her. And then the final way to remove this feeling of being disconnected from Allah, do you know what, what aam be near and mature because I had this

00:31:17--> 00:31:58

and the Blessings of your Lord enumerate? Talk about the blessings of Allah Alhamdulillah from our eyes Alhamdulillah for my hands Alhamdulillah from a mouth to hamdulillah for my heart. If Allah didn't love us, why is he still keeping us alive? If Allah didn't like us, why is he giving us sustenance for every minute that we alive? If Allah didn't love us, why are we here today, sharing this knowledge increasing in wisdom and love of Allah azza wa jal, my brothers my sister in Islam next time you feel disconnected, read Surah Taha and by Allah you will feel the same love that the prophet SAW Selim received from Allah azza wa jal that Allah subhanho wa Taala will have a surety

00:31:58--> 00:32:24

bless him and have a surety bless us inshallah. Very soon, very soon, unless promise will come true. My brothers Islam It is for this reason what's the Fianna 30 says that amazing statement? He said, Well, ah he I would not replace Allah with my parents to be the judge. On the day of judgment, I would rather have Allah judge me rather than my parents on the Day of Judgment, because I know Allah azza wa jal loves me more than my parents.

00:32:25--> 00:32:51

Yes, Allah. If you believe Allah loves you more than your parents, Allah will love you more than your parents. If you believe Allah can forgive all your sins, Allah will forgive all your sins. If you believe Allah will reward you and enter you to Jannah Allah will not betray your your faith in him. Allah will inshallah answer your door and enter you into Jenna Bismillah insha Allah to Allah, my brothers and my sisters in Islam.

00:32:53--> 00:33:04

I end with an amazing story of one of the great scholars who used to live in Medina. His name was Jamal, lutein Afghani. Have you ever heard of this color?

00:33:05--> 00:33:12

Some of you might have heard most of you probably haven't. He was such a superstar. He was such an amazing scholar.

00:33:13--> 00:33:19

He did his PhD from Medina University and became a great scholar teaching in the university itself.

00:33:20--> 00:33:30

As Chef jamaludin Afghani used to give classes in the back of the University where I used to study Alhamdulillah. And I never had the chance to really sit with the chef.

00:33:32--> 00:33:36

But the chef was Subhanallah very well known very beloved, to the people.

00:33:38--> 00:33:57

So once the chef was giving a class, and was giving a class here, the massive, massive pain in his tummy, very massive pain, so he could not complete his class. So they took him to the hospital. They fixed him up. They did whatever they did. They did some tests, told him come back after a week, we'll give you the results of the test.

00:33:58--> 00:34:22

They did some biopsies etc. He came back home, continued his classes for a week. And then after a week, he sent his students off to get the results from the hospital. When he went to the hospital, the students went to the hospital. Listen to this is such an amazing story. While LA is such an amazing story, went to the hospital, got the

00:34:24--> 00:34:30

results. And then came back to the chef. Once the chef was teaching his class.

00:34:31--> 00:34:33

Time the student was crying.

00:34:34--> 00:34:37

And his beard was wet with tears.

00:34:38--> 00:34:41

And the chef saw the student crying

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

and crying and crying.

00:34:45--> 00:34:48

And as he sat down in front of them in front of the class.

00:34:49--> 00:34:50

So he smiled.

00:34:52--> 00:34:56

He knew there was bad news, but he smiled. So what did he say? He said

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

did you get the results

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

He said Yes, Yes, Chef, I got the results.

00:35:04--> 00:35:10

And the chef got the student goes, the doctors have given you only a few days more to live.

00:35:14--> 00:35:31

Only a few days more to live. And when that news hit, all the other students were shocked. They love the shift so much. They started crying. And they all got up and they hug the chef and grab the chef and started kissing him and hugging him. And do you know what he said?

00:35:32--> 00:35:38

He was the only one who wasn't crying and he was smiling. Do you know what he said? He said, hubzilla Holika

00:35:40--> 00:35:40

of Allah.

00:35:45--> 00:35:51

He said Allah loves to meet me Allah is waiting to meet me. Should I not love to meet him?
