Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh We're still discussing the rules of karma and how being steadfast upon the deen of Allah subhanaw taala and in front of trials and challenges increases the chances for us to expect always the best from Allah subhanaw taala and we are discussing these rules based on the life and the legacy of Ibrahim alayhi salam as an example yesterday we talked about the rule of non dependency never to depend upon your own actions thinking that your actions will save you on the Day of Judgment. So if you didn't watch that episode, go back to this episode number nine, insha Allah Allah Allah, expecting the best from Allah subhanaw taala today second rule is

00:00:49--> 00:01:31

unshakable reliance upon Allah subhanaw taala to rely on Him in every action in every move you take in this life, even during those difficult moments, you surrender completely to Him, because he's capable to take you out of these difficulties. Ibrahim alayhis salam when he invited his people to Islam, including his father, they rejected immediately and How old was he? He was a young boy Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, Carlu Sanjana fatten Yes, Kuru, whom you call Lulu who Ibrahim the disbelievers in his town, they said that we heard a young boy making mention of them making mention of these idols. His name was Ibrahim, so he was a young boy, but he cared so much about his

00:01:31--> 00:02:12

religion, he cared so much about worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. And not only that, but to save his people from the punishment of hellfire. Olayiwola as a result of that, they decided to burn him. Look at this Subhanallah look at the reaction of the people when they are confronted with the truth and many times we will be tested hard. When we stand our grounds and speak the truth. Will you be shaken or will you demonstrate this unshakable reliance upon Allah subhanaw taala because you did not say anything wrong, you did not do anything wrong. You're just trying to fulfill the commands of Allah subhanaw taala. So they threw him in a blazing fire. In fact, they built a furnace. They put

00:02:12--> 00:02:55

him on a catapult according to some narrations, and they threw him in a blazing fire. And throughout all the process. The Prophet Ibrahim Ali Salam demonstrated this great attitude of Islam he kept on saying husband on law, one ama lucky Allah subhanaw taala is sufficient for me and he's the Disposer of all affairs, Allah subhanaw taala is enough if they kill me our return to Allah in Allah, Allah, He are in a layer on your own at the end of this dunya Subhanallah Where are we going to go? We will be returning to Allah subhanaw taala so why will I fear saying the truth if the end result is the same going back to Allah subhanaw taala they threw him in the fire and because of his firmness and

00:02:55--> 00:03:37

because of this is the karma Subhanallah Levine he expected nothing but goodness from Allah subhanaw taala Can you imagine a young boy putting them putting him on a catapult throwing him in a blazing fire and he's still calling saying Allah is enough for me until the last minute before getting into the fire. He was saying husband Allah and Amma Loki look how strong his faith was. And I'm not saying that we should be compared to the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam but doing our best to rely on Allah in a similar fashion. Perhaps during our trials and tribulations. Allah will intervene just as he intervened during the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam, when he commanded the fire to be cool and a

00:03:37--> 00:04:19

means of safety upon him just like how the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and Abu Bakr sullied May Allah subhanaw taala be pleased with him. During the migration they were hiding in a cave and Abu Bakr Sudhir called the Allah Allah told Mohammed Salah Salem, if they just look down, day will discover us they will see us and the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told him don't fear, don't be scared in Allah hermana Allah is with us. Just like Musa alayhis salam Subhan Allah, Allah leam when he was running with the people from Egypt, running away from frowny and his torture, and he's severe punishment to the children of Israel, and they arrived at the sea shore, where did

00:04:19--> 00:05:00

he go the sea in front of them and the enemies are coming from behind them, where are they going to run to and someone and negative person told him in that level, the raccoon, we are surely are going to be doomed and called by this enemy, and Musa alayhis salam with all calmness in his heart so he can learn in Nairobi, Sadiq Allah is with me, and he's going to guide me Subhanallah if you look at this, so the lesson is my brothers and sisters in Islam in order for you to expect the goodness from Allah, you have to develop that rule of the karma called unshakable reliance on Allah subhanaw taala. And remember, reliance on Allah doesn't mean doing nothing.

00:05:00--> 00:05:44

The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said hello and welcome to our calluna Allah Allah here at our college if you were to rely upon Allah subhanaw taala properly, he will provide for you he will assist you us He will support you just like how he assisted and provided for the birds who flew in the morning on an empty stomach and the return back to the nest with the belly full. So the birds did the part by flying in search of provision. And as a result, Allah subhanaw taala intervened and assisted them with this necessity Jazak Allahu Allah may Allah Subhana Allah grant us are reliant heart upon him all the time until we meet him. I mean, I mean, I mean, Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi
