Cinema lovers, brothers and sisters, it is an authentically reported with Hasson Chino is not
reported by Mr. Mohammed and humbling for Darla Sahaba. And in some of the margin that marginal about abhi Allah and others that holiday Walid when he went to the land Kahlil Hara, this is in Iraq, on the border of Iraq between Iraq and where Kuwait is now when he went to Iraq, the Muslims were a little bit afraid of the magician's over there, and the and the witchcraft that used to be performed at that time in the land of Persia. So they came to Hollywood and said, we are afraid that that these people might harm us. In one narration, the people actually said that we will surrender to you
if you drink a poison. So the Harlequin worried or the Allah tala who said bring this poison to me, so they concocted the most amazing poisons that was available at that time. And they It was almost 100% poison, and they gave him a cup full of that poison and the Hollywood eat, say Bismillah and then he drank it. And he was never ever harmed by Allah subhanho wa Taala he never died. So honey, this is a narration which
many other scholars Islam use, in order to demonstrate that if Allah subhanho wa Taala has written harm for you, then no one can stop it right and if Allah subhana wa Taala protects you then no one can harm you. Meaning every single thing from goodness to evil is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala only. So there is no use in us in fearing others other than Allah and no us in us in having hope in others other than Allah subhanho wa Taala That is why either of us Allah if you ask anyone, as called me from Allah and if you were to fear anyone filata hakuho Maha pony, meaning Do not fear them but fear me, if indeed you are believers right to fear Allah subhana wa Tada. So the truth here
should be from Allah. And truehope should be from Allah asking should only be from Allah. So in this work that we do today, working for the oma Mohammed, Salah Salim. And in our day to day lives, some of us are very, very risk averse. And some of us are those who
are who are always worried that if I do this, this will happen. If I do that, that will happen. You know, those sort of individuals
are people who lead their life with fear. Those people who have phobias, phobias of anything from leaving the job, phobias of investments, phobias, of taking any small risks, phobias about don't go there, don't go for holiday there, don't travel there. Don't do this. Don't do that. So these are people that never end up doing anything much in their life. And they lead their life with a constant
notion of fear, overseeing an overarching around them every single moment of their life. Those sort of people never be able to achieve anything good at all. Rather, the prophets of Salaam always encouraged only having fear of Allah subhanho wa Taala only. And if one if we truly had this faith in Allah azza wa jal as we should have, then we should know that by Allah, nothing can harm us at all. It was reported that shekel Islam even Tamia Rahim, Allah once had a debate with a Sufi share by the name of a refinery from the from the refinery clan. You know, the Sufi said that he was one of them was like the Reaper. And he called this guy and these Sophie's of the refinery clan, what
they used to do, is they used to put lots of
very thick amounts of dawn, which is fat on their bodies, which would give them a protective cover on their skin. And then they would walk into fire and walk out quickly. Okay, so they would light a fire into a ring of fire. And they would walk into the fire and walk out quickly and show the people Hey, look at me, I'm not touched by the fire, as if that they are some sort of miracles. So she called me and said to them, you know, you try to fool people in this manner. And so he said to them, now look at this lantern in front of me, bring this Lantern, so he called the chef and said, Put your finger just one finger into this Lantern, and I will put my finger and who's ever, ever his
finger is burnt than upon him as a curse of Allah and all of the angels and all of mankind. And so the chef, you know, the Sufi chef, he did not put his finger in knowing that he you know, His truth has been uncovered, and so far boutella the cover so the one who was the liar was discovered at that point from this debate. So the students even table Amala came to check on the cemetery and said, Hey, Jeff, where you going?
Put your finger really, we really got to put your finger into the fire. He said yes. So the students said, but he wouldn't have been I've been burned isn't it's like committing suicide. He said no, whoever does something for the sake of Allah, whoever does something for the sake of Allah knowing that Allah subhanho wa Taala is all protector. And knowing that all protection is from Allah and does it for the safety of Islam, and does it for the good of Islam, then indeed he will never be harmed by any law that will be harmed. It is for this reason my brothers and sisters, all of those who are working for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala do what you need to do for the sake of
Islam, without ever being afraid that you will be harmed. Because if you if you are afraid that you'll be harmed, then you will be harmed. But you are afraid that you will not be harmed and your fear is only from Allah and you know that Allah protection is only from Allah, then then we will continue to take calculated risks and do your work without being afraid of anyone but Allah subhanho wa Taala and you will find tremendous Baraka any work zacuto hair until the next time, or Salam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
