Episode Notes

Being locked down is a positive opportunity to correct our lives.

Attitude of a Believer while on lockdown:
– Performs what is beneficial, both in this world and the next.
– Seeks the Help of Allah, no matter how difficult the situation is.
– Stays stronger: mentally and physically.
– Consistently evaluated his life: his relationship with Allah, family and others.

Sahih Muslim –
The strong believer is better and more beloved to Allah that the weak believer, and in both there is goodness.
Strive for that will benefit you, seek assistance from Allah and do not give up.
If something were to afflict you, do not say, “IF only I had done this, such and such would have occurred”, but say, “This is the decree of Allah and whatever He will He does, since “if only” unlocks the work of Shaytan.

Stories of Isolation:
– Yunus AS in the belly of the whale
– Yusuf AS in prison
– Prophet Muhammad SAW and companions RA were boycotted by QUraish
– Shaykul Islam ibn Taymiiyyah was jailed seven times.

Dua by Yunus AS: “There is no deity except You, exalted are You. Indeed I have been of the wrongdoers.”

Ask Yourself:
– What was my life prior to this lockdown?
– Have I realised my sin?

Ayaat to reflect on:
– Do people think they will be left alone after saying “we believe” without being put to the test?” [29:2]
– You may dislike something although it is good for you or like something although it is bad for you. [2:216]
– For indeed with hardship will be ease [94:5]

00:07:38--> 00:07:41

law all of a sudden realize the importance of

00:07:42--> 00:07:51

doubt the importance of spreading the words of a last panel tile and the teaching of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:52--> 00:08:24

a time where we were not allowed to go to our messages a time where we are told to be locked behind closed doors and go nowhere and hashtag stay at home and so on and so forth. In that way time martial law many people have taken initiatives and and spread flooded the internet with lectures and talks and hamdulillah May Allah subhanaw taala continue his blessings. Just I don't know what is happening to the cameras. Just give me a second

00:08:27--> 00:08:32

is just a strange flash that keeps coming. So I'm not sure what is the

00:08:33--> 00:08:36

main reason of that. So just allow me a second please.

00:08:40--> 00:08:40

Oops.

00:08:42--> 00:08:47

Now that's my other side of the story. All right. We're continuing Chihuahua.

00:08:48--> 00:09:11

sapana Live, Alavi. We were told to stay home we were told to keep distance from one another. We were told to stay home. And many people went emotional so Carmelite alima was discussing with a friend of mine and I said that I pray to Allah during those days and I want you to join me in this prayer. We asked Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:09:13--> 00:09:17

That whatever is happening Coronavirus,

00:09:19--> 00:09:29

that deadly disease We ask Allah Subhana Allah to Allah that it is that it did not happen because of a sin that we were part of.

00:09:30--> 00:09:32

I asked Allah subhanaw taala

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

that this is not a sign of his anger upon us. There were time and I want to remind myself before anyone else this this. This talk my brothers and sisters is a heart to heart talk is a time where we should really reflect and wake up and see what went wrong. And I'm not trying to suggest here that whatever had happened is a punishment because I'm coming to that point later.

00:10:00--> 00:10:12

What I'm trying to tell you is that if it is a punishment, we ask Allah subhana wa Taala that this punishment is not because of a sin that we were part of

00:10:14--> 00:11:05

how many times my brothers and sisters in Islam, we were very comfortable. We were sitting in our homes, reclining on our chairs and our mattresses and our beds, sweeping or swiping through our phones and devices, watching movies and listening to music, playing and doing unnecessary stuff. And the message was just next door, the mosque was just next door, just across the street. The adhan was coming from all directions. And even if you if we were living in a non Muslim country, Subhanallah that non Muslim country had provided us with all the necessary facilities, to keep our Islam to keep our Eman to keep our practices without any restrictions, with exceptions, of course, a few things

00:11:05--> 00:11:26

here and there. But we were very comfortable how many times I want you to now rewind that tape and think how many times at that very particular time when you were free at any given time. You You could just leave your home and go anywhere else. Anywhere. Not not necessarily the message but any other place.

00:11:28--> 00:12:11

Yet, we decided not to go to the masjid. How many times you heard Messiah telling you I'm begging you come to the masjid it is empty already. How many times you heard the massage? It's saying that if you come to further prayer, you will see this less than one row in the masjid. How many times in Ramadan you heard that demands the scholars the Messiah telling you that we can understand why is it only in Ramadan, the messages are full. And the first night of diet, it is absolutely empty. How many times you passed behind the message but you chose to go to the shopping center or the mall because it's more fun. Today the messages are locked, whether you like it now whether you like to go

00:12:11--> 00:12:15

to pray your for your obligation in the masjid or not.

00:12:17--> 00:12:32

This is the fear my brothers and sisters in Islam. The fear is that if it is a punishment, are we responsible for it? Am I part of that calamity? Am I part of that?

00:12:34--> 00:12:40

It is time now to to think and to reflect and to ask ourselves the

00:12:41--> 00:13:23

important questions and this is something very important my brothers and sisters sometimes we ask questions that will not necessarily benefit us useless questions. Sometimes we just wanted to debate each other unnecessarily. Sometimes we want to prove each other wrong rather than really benefit from an intellectual discussion. It is now time to ask the right questions the Prophet sallallahu Sallam mentioned in one one duration and now I want you as we progress in the lecture, I want you to point to to to to to jot down these points

00:13:24--> 00:13:44

what what are the attitudes? What are the attitudes of a believer when they are locked down? When they are locked up? When their freedom is restricted? How should we behave now? We already messed up our lives as believers when we were free.

00:13:46--> 00:14:05

Now it's time to correct it when we are locked behind closed doors. So let us do something better let us let us do something inshallah that will benefit us and and lift this trial away from us in sha Allah. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said Horus, Allah May and foulke.

00:14:07--> 00:14:27

So this is the first point that we wanted to to reflect on the Harris, Allah May Allah, the prophet SAW Selim said, adhere to that which is beneficial for you. stick to that be keen upon performing all the actions that are beneficial to you.

00:14:28--> 00:14:59

That's what we should be doing now. Whatever is beneficial, and that that benefit should be something related to this dunya if it is your study, if it is your work, there is no problem the prophets Allah Allah Subhana Allah says in the Quran wallet and some I'll see you back Amina dunya Do not forget the portion that Allah had provided you in this dunya. So So long as you're breathing so long, so long as you're alive, perform will be successful. But, but whatever you do should be beneficial. beneficial.

00:15:00--> 00:15:18

to you as an individual, as a Muslim as a movement and beneficial to others, your family members, your friends, your neighbors, and so on, that hurt asylum and folk. But at the same time, whatever you do whatever you say whatever you engage in should be also beneficial to you for the hereafter for Jenna.

00:15:20--> 00:15:25

So aerosol Ma and fog is the first attitude. What are you going to do now?

00:15:26--> 00:15:44

I'm not sure about the situation in Pakistan. I heard that it's locked down maybe you can tell me in the comments, inshallah, what is going on? And what are the rules that been applied in Pakistan. In the past few days I heard about the lockdown I heard about school closure.

00:15:45--> 00:16:07

Here in Australia, many things now are being locked down at travel being banned internationally, even interstate travels like local flights been also banned. Many many businesses closed down restaurants, restaurants are restricted to delivery only schools are still open but the presence of students are almost

00:16:08--> 00:16:29

zero almost, you know, parents are afraid to send their children to school and so on. So what are we going to do now? You see, you will have a lot of time you will have a lot of time, but at the same time that time that allow in my opinion that Allah has blessed you with could fly just like that in front of the TV.

00:16:32--> 00:16:57

That time can fly my brothers and sisters in front of a TV watching movie after movie after movie Spamalot in Netflix was offering now more collection because you know, so Pamela for people. For some people, this is a time for business. Now all online programs are now pushing their you know, their programs upon people's throat to make monies upon a line all the

00:16:58--> 00:17:41

so Netflix is no better they want it to make money. In fact, one of the pornographic website the top pornographic website has given premium access free premium access for a month or two. Because he knows that people will be at home now what what are they going to do so time can fly. That time that Allah has given you as a blessing to make a shift and benefit yourself and benefit others and change the situation your favor can fly you can also miss that chance. In my opinion. being locked down being locked up is a chance is a positive opportunity for us to correct our life to correct our situation.

00:17:42--> 00:18:10

So in that Hadith, the professor said what are the Salah mindfuck but the first advice the attitude of believers who are locked behind closed doors do that which is beneficial for you from now on decide write it down my brothers and sister I'm not going to do anything foolish. I'm going to do that which will benefit me or my family or my Dean that's it. Second advice given in the same Hadith was dying biller and seek help from Allah span of time. There is no way out.

00:18:11--> 00:18:21

There is no other way out of this difficulty other than seeking help sincerely seeking help from Allah span of time. Some people may ask looks upon a light theme that

00:18:24--> 00:18:28

every morning every evening every afternoon

00:18:30--> 00:19:18

we pray yeah can Abu can assign you alone we worship and You alone we asked for help in Surah Fatiha so we've been asking Allah subhanaw taala for help all the way five times a day. But probably we are just saying it. Probably we became robotic believers and that's why Allah subhanaw taala is not witnessing that sincere call. Perhaps we need to correct even better, perhaps we need to reconnect with Allah Subhana Allah through our salon. So the first the first point is to do that which is beneficial. Second point is to seek help from Allah subhanaw taala while ta jazz and the third thoughts upon a lot all the time and don't be weak, my brothers and sisters

00:19:19--> 00:19:58

Don't be weak. It's time to show that we are collectively as believers collectively, that we are strong because that Hades the beginning of that belief is amazing. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam is making a declaration on kawi a hub boo ilahi how you don't Wahhabi La La human life of equal linhai that the strong believer is much better and more beloved to Allah subhanaw taala than the weak believer but both of them have has got goodness in them panel. Both of them have goodness because he man elevate your status by default.

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

But Allah subhanaw taala loves the Mothman, who is very strong, not necessarily you know, we're not talking about the physical strength here, which is also partially correct to be also physically fit. But also he loves the the strong, the spiritual strength as well.

00:20:20--> 00:20:31

Many, many I receive many messages where most Muslims are feeling down like you know, they are they are depressed what is the field that the despair

00:20:32--> 00:20:53

as a result of what's happening so upon a lot of them, perhaps because we were we were saying in the beginning oh this is a punishment for the disbelievers This is a punishment for the Chinese, some people some people and these messages I believe you have seen it that because of the because China have locked down the augur Muslims This is their punishment

00:20:55--> 00:20:58

look at us us now look at the Muslim lands

00:20:59--> 00:21:08

Look how many Muslim been affected what is the false So, we have to really reflect over all these

00:21:10--> 00:21:37

one of the things also I wanted to comment before I give you more points inshallah, on the attitude of believers who are locked down or locked up is that Allah subhanaw taala created for us the slims our eyes or mouth or nose or ears and hands and feet and made them under our command panel. So the you know, the last time that I made all these organs under my command, yeah.

00:21:38--> 00:21:44

If you wish to this obey Allah subhanaw taala with these limbs, they will obey you.

00:21:47--> 00:22:37

And if you wish to use those limbs to obey Allah subhanaw taala and to follow His commands, they will follow as well. So those feet instead of walking to the bar, what I had to build our state of walking with the harem relationship kind of girlfriend boyfriend, instead of looking at that which is displeasing to Allah, Allah, it is the time now to make them follow you in obeying a law and his comments. Back to the point that I mentioned about Chinese panel, I love that question that keeps coming. Again, this is one of the questions that we should not busy ourselves with. Is it punishment? Or is it test? Is it punishment? Or is it test? And how do we know that? Look, my one of

00:22:37--> 00:23:15

my mentors, she father Sulaiman, may Allah bless him. He had that beautiful post on Facebook as an example. He said that Imagine if you're living in a building, and in the first floor, there is a righteous believer who gave charity and always go to the masjid. And the second floor is an atheist, someone who doesn't believe in Allah at all. And another person is a Muslim, even though he's not like as religious as the person the first floor, but you still have a man and the third floor, the fourth floor, there is a thief. He's a Muslim, but a thief. And they are all have different variety of Eman and disbelief and so on and so forth. And all of a sudden the building, the building

00:23:15--> 00:23:15

collapsed,

00:23:16--> 00:23:51

and crashed and all of them died. Now, can we say that sapana law This is a punishment from Allah? Can we say it's a test for the atheist? Can you say that for every person person, that situation is translated? And it meant something different for every individual. So I want you now to evaluate your life. Is it a test for me? What was my condition before that outbreak? What What was my connection with Allah subhanaw taala look like

00:23:53--> 00:24:11

if if I was sinning, if I was pursuing in, in displeasing Allah again and again again and again. Or perhaps it's now either a reminder for you to wake up and do something better. And promise Allah subhanaw taala to remain upon his path. Or perhaps it is a punishment.

00:24:13--> 00:24:56

If you're a believer, and always doing that, which is right then it is best for you alone to to even you know, train you further train your level of patience. So depends, but on top of that we shouldn't busy ourselves with with this with this question. What we should be asking ourselves is how can I now use this opportunity to rectify my condition with a las panatela for example, when I shall be alojado as the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam about our own or about the plague that overtook some of the believers back in the days he said that it is for for believers who earn more money and it is for the believers it's mercy.

00:24:57--> 00:24:59

It's mercy from Allah subhanaw taala

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

So we never know. What you should be doing now is what you can actually assure yourself and assure everyone is the action. We should now become action oriented oriented Muslims look into our lives and see how can we behave in Charlottetown. I will go through a few stories about people who been locked up or locked down or

00:25:26--> 00:26:11

their freedom was restricted back in the days and how they behave, and how Allah subhanaw taala responded to that behavior. The first person that I wanted to mention is the Prophet of Allah subhanaw taala. You know, Sally's Salaam Yunus Ali Salaam was locked up in the belly of the whale. And according to the biblical narration, according to the Bible, he was actually locked in or swallowed by the whale. And he stayed there he remained there in the belly of the whale for three days and three nights. That's the biblical duration. Whether we agree with it or not, doesn't matter. Would you actually bear spending an hour in the belly of the whale? In the darkness of the

00:26:11--> 00:26:20

belly of the whale in the darkness of the ocean? Will you actually bear staying one hour? So the Prophet of Allah Yunus, Ali Salim

00:26:21--> 00:26:55

was tested very, very harshly through that test Allah Subhana. Allah says in the Quran, whether nguni Yvette haben was the ban, he was angry, and I don't want to get into the details of the anger part because we all get angry. So anger on its own is not a sin. It is how you respond to your anger that could become sinful. But the prophet SAW Selim himself became angry at certain at many, many on many occasions, but how did he react to his anger that's an art by itself. So he became angry but what was sin?

00:26:57--> 00:26:59

Sorry, I lost the connection for a second.

00:27:01--> 00:27:53

So being angry as I was saying is not sinful but how to react to your anger is what could make the situation worse. So the the problem that the noon or prophet humans Hi, Sam had as discussed in the Quran, or as narrated in the Quran for vulner and loved Nakamura Ali, he thought that we cannot restrain him, he thought that we cannot have power over him. That was the sin that caused all the problems of you know, being restricted or being locked down in the belly of the whale. And in another in another citation in another mode of citation, I also learned this from my wife, she, father to a man, he said in another narration, another mode of recitation is it for them, unless you

00:27:53--> 00:28:15

call Dada RA, which means that he thought that nothing could actually restrain him. Not only Allah Subhana Allah, which is of course a great sin to even think that Allah cannot restrain your cannot have power over you know, in another citation, it says that he thought that nothing could actually restrain him. But he realized that when he was punished

00:28:16--> 00:28:22

Now, here's my question for you. My brothers and sisters have realized that we have done something wrong.

00:28:23--> 00:28:33

Have we realized yet, and so when he realized Fenner the fifth rule omad, then he called upon Allah subhanho wa Taala. In the darkness.

00:28:35--> 00:29:02

La ilaha illa Anta Saba Hanukkah, in the container volume in la isla inland, there is no god worthy of being worshipped except you your last planet are, indeed, ours among those who had done injustice. I was among those who have done wrong, acknowledging and this is another attribute another attitude of lock down believers.

00:29:03--> 00:29:13

This is in salthill MBA, I don't have the reference here. I just have the ayat written on my notes. So it's sort of an MBA or the chapter title the prophets,

00:29:14--> 00:30:00

the known prophet Yunus, Ali salam, he didn't even ask a lot to grant him safety. He didn't even ask Allah hi Allah Take me out of here. He only called upon Allah subhanaw taala or munia jazz secretive call Illa inland now I realize there is no god worthy of worship except you. Indeed ours wrong. Just being being honest and humble enough to acknowledge that you were wrong is sufficient to lift the trials but are we sincere? That because the next is as soon as prophet Yunus is Salam called upon Allah in that fashion, first job in Allah then we responded him when a j now humming along me and we deliver

00:30:00--> 00:30:47

him from his stress Allahu Akbar, aka Delica noon, Gil Mini, and thus we save the believers and against your father. So I mentioned and by the way, guys, I mentioned his name quite often today shall follow sway man, because he recently had launched a new or an translation with the 10 karate or the 10 mode of translation and the translation martial a lot of watercolor is, is translated in in a way that we can relate to our time today. And it's beautiful because when when when you get those different of citation it gives you also an additional meaning to the Espanola Valley can only deal momineen and thus we save the believers. This is how we save the believers. But in another

00:30:47--> 00:31:07

Quran, it says and thus the believers were saved in the past tense, which means this is the condition of all the believers, once you acknowledge with humbleness and other attitude, are you listening down? Once you acknowledge with humbleness, that you were wrong, it could be the solution to our problems.

00:31:09--> 00:31:14

May Allah subhanaw taala keep us connected to Allah subhanaw taala through and through

00:31:15--> 00:32:05

humbleness me sherab in another story, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam when he started calling to Allah calling people to Islam as you know in the beginning the the rejected the cold very badly that people have Quraysh the tortured the the early Muslims as a result, some were able to migrate, others were not, and so on. And then there is a period where the Muslims were boycotted completely. No one sell to them, no one buy from them, no one marry them, no one provide them with food. In fact, they would see caravans coming carrying good goods and food and so on the orange the kuffar that this believers will meet these caravans at the outskirts of the city before entering

00:32:05--> 00:32:34

they will purchase all the products at a high price. Why? Because they don't want to. They don't want any any necessity to reach to the Muslims. Can you imagine the hardship I was told by one of my machines that according to one narration, it was said that they would eat the date and then they will keep on grinding the the seed and sucking on it every single day. Can you imagine the hardship they would eat leaves of tree

00:32:35--> 00:32:54

Khadija of your lawn or wash you feel sick the state they're behind. They will lock in an open desert my brother and sister we are locked muscle a lot of other cullowhee we are having to leave our homes our our our agenda on earth right? everything you want. You can find Mashallah Tabata, Colombia, Allah subhanaw taala bless us all.

00:32:55--> 00:32:58

But they were locked in the desert.

00:32:59--> 00:33:24

So, the job of the Aloha became very sick. She spent all her wealth, her health deteriorated. I will call it the uncle of the prophet SAW Selim. He became very sick. So panel of him, has he been nezu? Uh, has he been nurse? Who are you? Aku aku men now homelife? ternoon do you think just because you said we believe and we are Mormons, that Allah is not going to test you?

00:33:26--> 00:34:13

Is that what you think Allah Subhana Allah is, is asking us a question to reflect over? And the answer is in the question, no, we have tested the pay the people before you in even more harder ways to differentiate and to filter the good from the bad to filter the truthful from the hypocrites, reliable me, Allah, Allah protect us. And those same people, my brothers and sisters, despite the hardship, they came out calling people to Islam again, we didn't give up the message. This is not surrender to the weakness that they were under. They did not. In fact, in my eyes, my brothers and sisters, they were stronger because, you know, if you if you have that physical power, and you are

00:34:13--> 00:34:21

enforcing that power over the week and the week still insisting on their principles and values, they are stronger than you.

00:34:23--> 00:34:35

And that is the condition of the believers back then. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us that strength. I mean, they insisted on calling people to Islam, despite all these hassles that they went through.

00:34:36--> 00:34:59

Remember my brothers and sisters, again, another attitude of the locked down believers is that they always believe in our last three, Yusra they always have that faith, that with every difficulties comes ease because that's what exactly happened to them afterwards. victory after victory, the rule Arabia, the rule, you know,

00:35:02--> 00:35:25

So many countries in so many nations afterwards, Islam was open to all hearts, in every direction, the promise of Allah subhanaw taala had given Ibrahim alayhis salam, what then fineness just call call people. They will come to you Islam came to people so panel why loving people came rushing to Islam embracing it from every direction.

00:35:26--> 00:36:09

So they believe those people with hardship those people who are restricted within closed doors, they believe that in our last three, Yusra indeed with hardship comes ease. Another story in sha Allah, Allah I hope that you are you are noting down these these points so that we can inshallah and I have a surprise for you in sha Allah, we have our dear sister by our Isha from the Philippines she is with us writing notes and in sha Allah Allah she will compile the notes in a beautiful design PDF file and that PDF will be shared in sha Allah. Once it is ready made a Lost Planet Allah reward you my dear sister, and that's not putting pressure on your anything any whenever you can, whenever you

00:36:09--> 00:36:12

finish it inshallah, by tomorrow we are happy to receive it.

00:36:14--> 00:36:17

Yusuf Ali salam, the prophet of Allah,

00:36:18--> 00:37:14

the prophet of Allah, look at this, because he rejected the sin and you know what sin is that that's the sin of Zina because he rejected it. He said Allah or BCG new hub boo la mia adoni la lay your a lot I bear witness you be my witness that prison that jail being locked up behind bars is more beloved to me than what they call me to. Then what what then sin in general, then what then haraam ingen siljan being locked on is much better. So I want you to ask yourself these questions. Were we sinful before Coronavirus and when I say sinful means that were we far far away from Islam far far away just Muslims but you know we do a lot of bad things that anger a las panatela and I don't want

00:37:14--> 00:37:18

you to comment on this just you reflect within you and yourself.

00:37:19--> 00:37:21

within you and yourself reflect ask yourself

00:37:23--> 00:38:12

perhaps Allah Subhana Allah is locking you down now lucky you up so that you can inshallah to Allah, correct your behavior and become a better person. Will that will that condition be more beloved to your heart than being free and being sinful? If you're sincere that Allah subhanaw taala in sha Allah will lift your trials, I mean, maybe it is better for us for LA wasa and to crochet and well who are higher on lakum you may hate something which is better for you will lie perhaps this is better for us. And I know that it's difficult it's not easy people dying people are the frequency of infections is on the rise. So panel line larvae In my opinion, I think none of us have experienced

00:38:12--> 00:38:18

something similar to that in our lives. We haven't experienced something like that ever. So May Allah protect yourself

00:38:20--> 00:38:31

another thing amazing about profit use of IE Salaam you remember the story and I want to read the verses because I'm afraid to forget. I don't have good memories, Paula. But I

00:38:32--> 00:39:14

I wanted to remind you of you remember those two friends to the two companions of the prison? Yes. Oh, hi Bay, Sydney. Those people who was with him in jail, they asked him about a dream that they had seen remember? And Subhanallah look at how the conversation when they asked him Can you interpret that that dream for us? We can see that you are a righteous man. Can you interpret that dream? prophet Yusuf Ali Sam could have immediately interpret the dream But no, look what what he said. He said, You You have witnessed that I could tell before the food arrived to ourselves, what you're going to eat. And because of that, you're asking me you notice that I'm special. And that's

00:39:14--> 00:39:24

why we're asking you see how the conversation go. And then he said well, the early Kuma Mina Alemany Robbie, this is what Allah told me, Lahore Akbar.

00:39:25--> 00:39:54

Why would you go that to that direction? Why did he answer the question? Do you have those kind of friends? You ask them a question then they give you details. I know. I know. I know. Just answer me bro. finish quickly, man. Why are you you know prolonging it. But look, they asked him one question. He took it he took them to a complete different direction. Allah is the one who taught me this. This is not my intellect. This is not who I am. This is what Allah told me. That likoma mimma lemoney or B

00:39:56--> 00:39:59

which means if you want to add another point, as an attitude,

00:40:00--> 00:40:24

For the lockdown believers is seizing the opportunity for the hour at any given time, even if you're behind bars even if you're locked down. This is the time for our man. This is the time a lot given us internet connection, Facebook, Twitter, whatnot, you have all the necessary tools and opportunities to spread the word of Allah subhanaw taala de our

00:40:25--> 00:40:59

look at the man they asked him one thing he answered the early Kuma Mima lemony Robbie, and let me let me just read to you the ayat after that he didn't answer them yet. He said in me talk to me later call me and let me know Nabila, I have left the religion or the way of life of people who do not worship Allah subhana wa homebuilt at home Catherine and they this belief they don't have any faith in the hereafter. What about me? And I followed the way of life of my forefathers. Ibrahim, what is half Why are

00:41:02--> 00:41:46

mark and Elena and mystery can be led him in shape. It was not meant for us to worship other than Allah. It was not meant for us to associate partners with Allah subhanho wa Taala highlight that was not the main intention behind sending the profits behind sending those great people. Valley come in Fort Lee la Hey Alena, this is the favor of Allah upon us worshiping Allah is a favor. A Leo MathML Tula convenor como Atlanta la Kamera maturo V to la comida Islam Medina, this day I have perfected your religion for you completed my favor upon you. Islam is a favor as a blessing. Don't ruin it, my brothers and sisters, that he can informally lay on line and this is of the bounty of Allah upon us

00:41:46--> 00:42:09

for a while and nurse and upon every other person while in the axon nurse. He lay a screw, but the majority of people do not show gratefulness. They're not, you know, showing gratitude to Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, Sahib, a surgeon is still talking about Allah. He didn't interpret the dream yet. Our Babel motto for akuna hieron Amelia Earhart

00:42:11--> 00:42:14

are more gods who are deviated

00:42:15--> 00:42:23

and separated God's better me Let him or her or Allah subhanaw taala the one that irresistible

00:42:24--> 00:43:07

Matta bluedomino bloomin dooney inla asthma and some may to move her into mother whatever commands or law behind insult on whatever you worship besides Allah subhanaw taala are nothing but names that you have named them. You and your forefathers a lot never revealed such a thing. So Pamela in in Lila, the judgment the final judgment will be left to Allah subhanaw taala. Amara Allah Tabu Illa Yeah, he had commanded that you should not worship anyone but him that he could deal with him. This is the straight path. This is the proper religion, while our kin axon se lay Allah moon, but the majority of people do not know, man, they asked him what is the interpretation of the gene, he start

00:43:07--> 00:43:10

giving them a lecture about who are allies now.

00:43:12--> 00:43:33

I hope you got my point. inshallah. I'm just, I'm emotional a bit when it comes to that, because this man was was was sent to jail unjustly. And some people say seven years, some people nine years and he never forget about Allah subhanaw taala. He never forget. And then later on, after all these big lecture,

00:43:34--> 00:43:36

he interpreted the dream.

00:43:37--> 00:43:51

And even when it's upon law, even when Allah sees that minister of Egypt, when he needed him to interpret his dreams, he helped them while he was in jail. He did not tell them take me out first and give me You know,

00:43:53--> 00:44:39

it helped prepare a helicopter to take us out of town and put this No, no, he didn't put any conditions. So another attitude. And this is very important point. Another attitude of those who are locked down is service service to humanity, service to your neighbors. Remember, don't act like those people who fold over toilet papers. Don't Don't act like these selfish people. Remember that, that Allah intended to create us in you in community so that we can survive and help one another. So check on your neighbors, but maintain the distance because it's difficult now to go on knock doors and get inside you know, the Pakistani style and you know, the briyani stuff. All this is avoided

00:44:39--> 00:45:00

for now at least a phone call, at least you know FaceTime each other may make a post that anyone needs some help and so on and so forth. Service is another quality of those people who are locked behind my brothers and sisters in Islam. I want to tell you something my own Shaykh was jailed in Egypt eight times and he told us a lot of the stories and one of the

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

The stories that really moved me to tears was the story when he in one of his, you know, sentences he was studying in jail

00:45:12--> 00:45:56

Okay, I will wrap up inshallah in less than 10 minutes, so that you can go for Maghreb in sha Allah, please forgive me. But he said that he studied the alpha to heart or the battles of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and every two to three months, we will call some prisoners, they will release some and they will send back others to their cells. So every time I want you to imagine this every time we will call all the prisoners to give them the news he will be praying your Allah extend my jail another month, you're like, extend my jail another two months, you're allowed to extend my he'll have another three months. And I will be asked, Why would you say that? Who could ever pray a

00:45:56--> 00:46:26

lot keep me in jail, because he thought he didn't want to leave jail without studying and memorizing those battles of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and the final time they called him he said you're a lot I asked you to extend my jail even even if one week even if one more week because he needed one battle one more battle left in the book. And they sent him back for one month and he finished that book and when they told him that you have another one month he said Allahu Akbar Voila.

00:46:27--> 00:47:10

Look at that look at the perspective is completely different. Just like if you take me and we'll end with this inshallah a minute a mere amatola Holly, the man who was jailed for Al Qaeda, he jailed because of his Deen to defend the right religion that was brought by the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam how many times he was jailed seven times a lot of work well, not once, not twice, not three times, seven times locked down. May Allah Subhana Allah have mercy on him, and it will pay him who's his student, he was jailed with him as well once and he said that, that time when we entered jail together, he was smiling. He was happy like you know,

00:47:11--> 00:47:56

and he said Sydney hola he have that beautiful lines about jail and he's experienced in jail. He said what my enemies are going to do to me anyway, my agenda is in my heart. Wherever I go, it's with me my happiness, meaning my happiness is in my heart wherever I go, it's with me. So Sydney hola my jail is my seclusion. That's my time that I need with the last panel tab. And this is in short, long Tyler. My advisor will conclude with another attitude of being locked down his productivity because that man had written all the books that all the machines in the world have studied to teach you your religion. There is not a scholar word of a name, who does not go through

00:47:56--> 00:48:09

the study of the books of shameful Islam is called Shay Hall Islam elimine Entertainment, not a single shade, who did not study his work. He wrote all those books in jail.

00:48:10--> 00:48:16

So if you look behind doors now it's your time to become a productive believer.

00:48:18--> 00:48:18

She

00:48:20--> 00:49:01

scheffel Islamic Lee Tamia he completed the Quran at one times the last time he entered jail and he died in jail reciting Quran May Allah subhanaw taala make us among those people who realize the wisdom behind that locked down system or that time of seclusion that we will have in sha Allah to Allah and seize the opportunity to rectify our situation with a Lost Planet Allah I hope that you have benefited.
