Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh Brothers and Sisters in Islam remember the right time is known to no one except ALLAH SubhanA wa ala al Hakim, the most wise, Allah subhanho wa Taala he knows the weight of your trials, its length, how long it's gonna last with you. And when exactly it's going to be lifted Allah subhanho wa Taala said in the Quran, my brothers and sisters in Islam, wala mer Menon and all who had done Allahu wa rasuluh wa salam ala Hora su were Mirza home eel Eema know what is Lima? Look at this I am my brothers and sisters and post that video and reflect on a deeply in sha Allah. Allah is telling us here that when the believers face the enemies, the soul the
army coming to crush them, they said, This is what Allah Subhana Allah Allah and His Messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Mohamed Salah Salem have promised us and Allah and His Prophet Muhammad wa salam. They always speak the truth when as their home Eman and what is Lima and that difficult situation of war bloodshed fear of increased the more Eman have increased the more in your clean certainty about Allah subhanaw taala and His messenger and the religion of Truth Islam Subhan Allah Alim we sometimes fail to realize this, that when Allah subhanaw taala put you in a difficult situation, he's actually giving you an opportunity to reflect that through this difficult situation.
Your Eman may increase and you get step closer and closer to Allah subhanaw taala and the ultimate reward of gender. Let's go back a few verses in the same Surah a few verses back before this idea to see a little bit of context about what happened earlier. Allah subhanaw taala informed us in the same area is jell o comin focus on warming is fairly Minko what is xaba Till Assad were Bella to Kulu will honeybadger what are the known biller? He's the owner who nearly kept to leave me known was Zillow Zellen Shalida Allah subhanaw taala is telling the believers here remember, when your enemies came from above you and from below you you were surrounded from all directions and the eyes
start to shift left and right out of fear and the hearts reach to the throat Subhanallah or the look at the fear that they went through what have Munna Billa he don't wanna and he started to have various negative assumptions about Allah subhanaw taala, who nearly kept to your moon, that was a severe test for the believers was Zelos in Zeile and Shalida. Look at the test. Look at the severity of the test. How Allah describe it, he said and they were shaking, a great shaking, they were they were experiencing like an earthquake of fear within themselves as a result of this incident. Subhanallah lobby now how can we reconcile between both in the Quran, the first is windy so the
enemies they were steadfast They remain patient. And the second one they thought or they went through various negative assumptions about Allah subhanaw taala one explanation could be that when the believers so the enemies at first they remain patient, they remember ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala the supplicate and as a result Allah strengthen their hearts and increase the Eman so this one interpretation but perhaps the didn't expect that victory will take that long. And as a result Allah subhanaw taala tested them with this situation of difficulty where the ASVAB or the enemy surrounded them from all directions. Allah subhanaw taala wanted to teach them a lesson that victory is in the
hands of Allah subhanaw taala alone so wait. The right time is in his hands alone. Imagine my brothers and sisters this battle took them one month they were under siege from all direction one whole month impatience perseverance, prayers struggle, and this is exactly what we sometimes go through our trials sometimes taken a bit longer will you wait for Allah's time? Will you trust Him that He knows better? Because he's al Hakim, the most wise? Will you wait for his victory? Will you wait for his cure? Will you wait my brothers and sisters in Islam or you will become despaired? So remember my brothers and sisters in Islam to wait, the victory of Allah subhanaw taala should be on
his own terms, not yours, not according to your own desires and wants and the longer you wait, the higher will be rewards in sha Allah that Allah in nostril la Hikari indeed the victory of Allah subhanaw taala is closer than you think. And some people would say when is that near brother? Be careful. Don't question Allah subhanahu wa
Allah, He is not to be questioned about anything. But we should be questioned we should be questioned my brothers and sisters in Islam so wait for Allah's time near according to him not according to you. So wait and trust Him in sha Allah to Allah with full submission and acceptance. Now the final point in this episode will be why the trials should be prolonged anyway. So here are a few points for you in short, long data to note and I will go through them very, very briefly but I advise you in sha Allah, to delve into these points in details, perhaps by means of research and reading, other resources, Inshallah, number one, perhaps to strengthen us and prepare us for maybe
heavier trials that will come along our ways. So it's like a preparation for us to remain firm and to remain calm and to increase our connection with Allah subhanaw taala. Number two, to remind us that we are weak, we are not in control of our own destiny, so we become more humble. And the lower we get, the higher our reward will be on the Day of Judgment in sha Allah Allah in alpha dosa Allah, number three to remind us that victory and all solutions are in the hands of Allah subhanaw taala alone, we alone are doomed. We cannot do anything without the permission and help and assistance of Allah subhanahu What are number four to return back to Allah subhanaw taala in sincere Doha worship
prayers, which is the purpose of our existence, ask for his forgiveness. Perhaps what we are going through is the result of our own wrongdoing and sinful activities. And as a result, Allah wanted to test us so that we can turn back to him and fulfill our purpose in this dunya in sha Allah of time, so wait, my brothers and sisters in Islam, he knows that I time and we do not know anything. So always expect the best from him. A salaam alaikum warahmatullahi over again.
