Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh Welcome to another episode of the power of victory. In this episode, we're continuing to look at some of the benefits and the virtues of remembering Allah azza wa jal, and how we can become from those who remember Allah much both male and female.

00:01:41--> 00:02:28

From the many benefits of remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala, which even okay you mentioned in one of his books, is that remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala brings happiness and tranquility to the heart, and it feeds the soul. So it brings happiness to the heart. It brings tranquility to the heart, it makes you feel happy and feel content. And it's like feeding your soul. So when you cut off from the remembrance of Allah, it's like starving your soul of food. And you know what happens when you starve your body of food for a long period of time, you become very agitated, you become find it very difficult to concentrate, you become sick. Likewise, your soul needs to be fed. And the

00:02:28--> 00:02:50

way that you feed your soul is through the remembrance of Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And ebenen Kagame he mentions as an evidence for this to statement of Allah subhanho wa Taala in an a la Vina ermanno what's out in Nakuru boom visa karela Allah be Vickery la he Tacoma in Nakuru,

00:02:51--> 00:03:18

those who believe and their hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah. Indeed, in the remembrance of Allah, do hearts find rest? So those who believe, what is their description? How are they described in this ayah? Those who believe they are described as being those people who their hearts find rest in the remembrance of Allah? And indeed, Allah azza wa jal, who is the creator,

00:03:19--> 00:04:07

who is the one who knows what is best for us in our lives, he says, indeed, in the remembrance of Allah, do hearts find rest. And the reality is that hearts don't find rest in anything but the remembrance of Allah. If you look at the news reports, day after day after day, the richest people in the world, the most the people with all of the wealth and all of the money with everything that they need, and they are so desperately desperately unhappy. Many of them commit suicide, many of them turn to drug and alcohol abuse. Why is it that they do that? Because our Creator has told us unless you're remembering Allah, don't expect to be a piece. And this works the opposite way around

00:04:07--> 00:04:54

because our last panel to Allah tells us in another iron nickel iron woman out of and victory for in Allahumma Asia, Tim banca whoever turns away from my remembrance is going to have a hard and constricted and a difficult life. He's going to be completely constricted and restricted. He's going to feel like his chest his, his his his his title tight, he isn't able to relax, he isn't able to have fun, no matter how much Allah has given him from the dunya. And this is so so true. You only have to look at the news reports. And you think how can someone with millions and millions and millions of pounds with fame with people admiring them around the world? How can that person take a

00:04:54--> 00:04:59

drug overdose and commit suicide? How can that person jump off the top of a building

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

What is it that makes a person do that it's because the only way that you can find happiness, and the only way that you can find tranquility is by remembering Allah subhanho wa Taala alharbi Vickery la he tautomer in Nakuru isn't it by the remembrance of Allah, or indeed it is only by the remembrance of Allah, that hearts find rest. And so when we don't give our hearts this rest, like when the body is refused food, when the soul is refused the remembrance of Allah, then it becomes agitated, it becomes sick, and the person is unable to find tranquility, and they are unable to be happy. And some of the the the Imams of the past, they used to say that if the Kings knew how happy

00:05:46--> 00:06:28

we were, they would command for our heads to be chopped off, they will command for us to be killed out of jealousy for how happy we were, if the rulers and the Kings knew, because they had everything, but they weren't remembering Allah. And yet there was this poor person in a village somewhere, or this person in a small Masjid, teaching the people remembering Allah every day. And he was far happier than the king in his policy was far happier than the governor, in his beautiful gardens with all of his money and all of the wealth that he had amassed, because what is with your Lord is better, and is more lasting. And it's not just about the body, you can give the body the

00:06:28--> 00:07:13

finest food, you can give the body, the most beautiful surroundings, the softest bed the most beautiful cloths. But if the soul doesn't find nourishment from the remembrance of Allah, then the body will become agitated, and the person will not be happy. And this is something which time constantly constantly attests to. And history attests to day after day after day, you find people who from celebrities and famous people who accept Islam, and you say to them, you know, you've accepted Islam, what even made you want to even look at Islam. And they will say I was deeply, deeply unhappy. I was in a state of constant anguish, I couldn't find any peace, any happiness, I

00:07:13--> 00:07:52

spent all my money, and it didn't bring me happiness. I spent all my money it didn't bring me tranquility, because the only thing that is going to bring you tranquility is the remembrance of Allah. And, you know, this applies not only to the rich and famous, this applies to you and me, this applies to everyone who has stresses in their life, how many of us we all have stresses, we all find times when we are stressed when we are anguish when we time, you know, in times of anguish in times of worry, in times of concern. How do you find rest? How do you actually feel like your content? How do you actually feel like that you have found some inner peace. This peace comes by the remembrance

00:07:52--> 00:08:34

of Allah, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam who had the most stressful life of any human being. Because of all of the pressure upon him. Imagine the pressure you have at work of doing your job properly. Imagine if your job is to guide all of mankind with the permission of Allah, all of the men and all of the jinn. You're not just worried about five people who work for you or 10 or 20, or a country full of people, or a city but you're worried about the entire of mankind in the Djinn from this time until the end, that is a huge pressure upon a person. And what is the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam used to say to be led komiya bailout for the Salah. Standard or

00:08:34--> 00:09:16

below and give us a break, give us some relaxation, some rest. By the prayer. By the remembrance of Allah, we find rest. And it's so so so sad that we see these days that there are so many people who find their rest and their tranquility, in the disobedience to Allah. And in reality, this doesn't give them rest and tranquility. We said that and that's true that they don't find rest and tranquility from it. But they attempted to find it. And that's Muslims that I'm talking about who are trying, you know, I've had a bad day, I'm going to I'm going to go and drink alcohol. I've had a bad day, I'm going to take drugs, I'm going to go out and party I'm going to do this I'm going to do

00:09:16--> 00:09:58

that. Let me put some music on. It's been a rough day. But whatever you do, to try and seek that in the disobedience of Allah, it won't work. You switch the music off and you'll feel exactly the same as you felt before. Deep down inside. Maybe the shaytan is you know covered a little bit up for you but not deep and lasting tranquility and deep and lasting peace. deep and lasting peace comes from the remembrance of Allah subhanho wa Taala just like the body needs water and food the soul needs the remembrance of Allah ibaka also mentions other benefits. He says from the benefits of remembering Allah is that Allah azza wa jal will remember you

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

and this is taken

00:10:00--> 00:10:50

From the ayah in which Allah subhanho wa Taala says first Cooney as Coco fez coo Rooney, as Coco. Remember me, and I will remember you, how much are we in need of our Lord subhanho wa Taala and he's not in any need of us. We in desperate need of him all the time. We're in desperate need of Allah azzawajal to give us what we need to look after us. How many times do we say in our do I know advocate or Allah, don't leave me to myself. even tougher times even for a blink of an eye the blink of an eye Don't leave me to myself. We're in desperate need of Allah subhanaw taala to help us to be there for us to provide us for us to to take care of us to stop bad things from happening to us to

00:10:50--> 00:11:36

save us from misguidance to bring us towards the straight path. We can't do any of this without remembering Allah. So with the vicar of Allah, Allah azza wa jal remembers us and there's a hadith in Bukhari and Muslim from the hadith of Abu hurayrah. May Allah be pleased with him, that the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said narrating from Allah subhanho wa Taala This is a hadith which is called Hadith could you see a hadith in which the slave narrates from Allah, which the prophet SAW Selim rates from Allah azza wa jal, and a Lost Planet. Allah says, Whoever remembers me in himself to himself, I remember him, to him to myself, or in myself, and whoever remembers me

00:11:36--> 00:12:20

in a gathering, I remember him in a gathering that is better than those people that he is with SubhanAllah. So you remember Allah azza wa jal alone, analyzer gel remembers you. You remember Allah in a gathering and Allah azza wa jal mentions you in a gathering that is better than the people that you have gathered. That is the gathering of the highest of the angels, the most noble and the closest of the angels to Allah, Allah azza wa jal mentions you you not anybody else, Eliza, Jen mentioned the one who is remembering Allah and you just think Subhana Allah, you know, when you feel that, you know what, what is it like for to feel that Allah Subhana Allah remembers you when you

00:12:20--> 00:12:51

remember him? What an amazing thing what an amazing feeling to feel that Allah subhanaw taala mentions you to the angels when you mentioned him in a gathering of people. So this is an example of a person remembering a lost pantalla in themselves and remembering a Lost Planet Allah towards others, and this is the situation of the Muslim. That's all we have time for in this short episode of the power of Vicar. please do join us for the next episode in sha Allah tala. Until then Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
