Almost 100 In Radha Ali Muhammad can oscillate on a Brahim, what are the Abrahamic habido Majeed always do to align his prayers and blessings and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa he was Sunday, I bear witness that Allah is the only one worthy of worship. And Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, his last and final messenger. My dear brothers and sisters,

00:00:25--> 00:00:36

it's estimated about 200 million Americans are insured somehow. They have a kind of insurance, it's called insurance or it is

00:00:37--> 00:00:48

sent some type of life insurance Health insurance unit, or the insurer merchandise. This is a huge industry in the United States and in the worldwide.

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

And if you trust the history of the insurance, you will see this is a growing business. It's a huge business, it's estimated to be $1 trillion.

00:01:02--> 00:01:36

That's that's that's huge. That's a huge amount of money. You know, just the if you look into some of the areas of the insurance, you will be shocked that for example, personal auto insurance. We spend that this was a maybe two years or three years old, this this this fix that our numbers are out, but it's around that you can make the guess. Then auto insurance that we spend $160 billion 160 billion with a B dollar that's $160. Industry sorry.

00:01:37--> 00:01:42

So huge industry, it's a huge business, property and casualty to 200.

00:01:43--> 00:01:47

It's estimated to be $200 billion as well.

00:01:48--> 00:02:07

Life insurance, health insurance on these areas. It's estimated to be around the 500. So $1 trillion in District it's basically a big chunk of our economy of our economy and this is increasing increasing.

00:02:08--> 00:02:15

The Department of Labor estimated an average household in America 2.5.

00:02:19--> 00:02:32

will spend every year will spend every year $2,664 $2,664. That's an average household in America.

00:02:35--> 00:03:13

What I'm trying to say insurance is something people are so fascinated with the ID the idea to be insured to be protected. When you invest when you infer basically even people insured weird things. There was a very famous funny case in Florida of a guy who had a Cuban cigars who insured his Cuban cigar with $25,000 in the insurance company were not very smart the way they wrote the basically the the contract because part of the insured you're against fire

00:03:15--> 00:03:58

and he ended up smoking a cigar and bring it burn. After he finished he says it's was on fire on he got his $25,000.25 $25,000 back in the insurance company hire a lawyer and they sue him back for purposely putting it on fire. And he got some money out of him as well. So it's weird in evidence this singer was reading a little bit about the insurance how crazy people with insurance, this single sheet and I thought she will insured her voice but she insured her legs and I don't know why until now in Asia ensure her legs for $1 billion

00:04:00--> 00:04:06

that's even the said that's more than what all the football players eat for their interests are like Masilela

00:04:07--> 00:04:08

spend on their own

00:04:09--> 00:04:33

lands which is they needed for their sports. You know, there's this famous James Bond actor in one of his movies and 2000 2008 the quantum he basically insured himself because he insisted producer insists that he will do that no stunt he will do the stunt by himself and the insured him for about $5 million.

00:04:35--> 00:04:42

So in in every area he will see people are fascinated with the concept of insuring themselves getting some kind of protection.

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

But we all know what happened in Katrina. We all know what happened with the insurance company. You know, how would you before you recite the contract everything is fine and nice. The employee to get them to pay. You know you have to have some big fight to get you up.

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

Honey back off to really do fulfill the terms of their conditions. You know, we ensure you have the water comes from the top and top of the water come from the bottle, you're initially insured against hurricane but not flooded.

00:05:13--> 00:05:36

In August stories that you're familiar with, and people look for was looking for somebody who's looking for health insurance, the term Schokolade Oh, don't use this health insurance company. These are better, they provide a better protection, there are blue shield, which your blood seal, double zero triple shield unit, and everybody looking for the best type of insurance to cover him or her in the time of Newt.

00:05:37--> 00:05:50

I'm not here to talk about insurance. I don't have an insurance agency and I don't promote anyone in particular, but when I talk about a different type of insurance,

00:05:51--> 00:05:56

that I found, it is very fascinating that human beings in nature wants that protection.

00:05:57--> 00:06:06

Then when you look at Allah subhanaw taala His names and attributes, you will find one of his name and Haseen

00:06:07--> 00:06:10

which is the one who ensured his creation

00:06:12--> 00:06:23

that he can have on sign with you a policy of insurance that is beyond any kind of policy that you can think of that ALLAH SubhanA wa hasI

00:06:25--> 00:06:28

bookie Fiat and why mieten When we're

00:06:31--> 00:06:32

careful, Catherine Aquila,

00:06:33--> 00:06:42

Allah subhanaw taala ensure and protect and guarantee his protection to servants 24 hours 24/7

00:06:44--> 00:07:30

And by the way, what is so unique, what's so unique than the protection of Allah to us, comes initially from Allah, and he doesn't need to pay anything, actually, every single human being popped into production with Allah subhanaw taala provide for you, he protected you when you were in your mother's womb, He protected you and he got you out of your mother. And if you think of just yourself, think about that as millions, I mean hundreds and 1000s of possibilities for things to go wrong. You know this famous program people watching TV talk about 10,000 ways to people to die. You know, when you watch one or two of these shows, you think you know nothing safe anymore, you can

00:07:30--> 00:07:43

then renew these for any reason so but to protecting you almost 101 of the production that Allah provide that he said in his book no more up to that to maintain a human comfort yesterday.

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

Allah accounted for each and every human being no matter how

00:07:51--> 00:07:59

good or evil to a Muslim or a cow or disbeliever believe Him no matter how's the relationship with you

00:08:00--> 00:08:06

as a human being Allah have assigned and appointed for your angels of protection to protect you

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

and thus

00:08:10--> 00:08:10


00:08:12--> 00:08:13

favor jobs

00:08:18--> 00:08:44

that have been Abbas and Alibaba types in these angels responsibility to protect you from diseases from insects from anything viruses even come on out there. Unless it was over a degraded upon for whatever reason Allah wanted this to happen to then the angels was livid. But other than that they are protecting from all these ways that can come in your way into home. How many times you have seen your kid you see Whoa, that was so close.

00:08:45--> 00:08:55

Wow, that is almost lost his eyes panel by just over 2111 inch. This way that way, maybe it will be worse almost. Allah protect.

00:08:56--> 00:09:14

So this is an issue that the prophets of salaam used to thank Allah for it. In a daily basis. The Prophet salallahu Alaihe Salam, as a Muslim reported to us that in the midst of Allah, every time he goes to his bed, he used to say Alhamdulillah

00:09:16--> 00:09:19

was what was

00:09:21--> 00:09:35

the first Allah subhana what's the first or was the one who have provided for us to and some things to drink, drink and also have became make us he's our

00:09:37--> 00:09:37


00:09:39--> 00:09:42

the tea is our protector subhanho wa Taala

00:09:44--> 00:09:52

and let's through these few minutes go over certain things that you will find it in the Quran and the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam

00:09:54--> 00:09:58

was mentioned in the Quran sunnah to guarantee you extra protection

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


00:10:00--> 00:10:05

That's true protection for date on support from Allah subhanaw taala

00:10:06--> 00:10:09

which is we call it and Keifa when I was

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


00:10:12--> 00:10:19

ALLAH SubhanA first thing but it will go to the protection and the full protection of Allah subhanaw taala. First point

00:10:22--> 00:10:23


00:10:25--> 00:10:27

And so it's a symbol. And it's Allah because

00:10:29--> 00:10:30


00:10:31--> 00:10:41

is most efficient with Allah Subhana Allah, He is the one who's going to protect and to and to ensure his app, the one who is serving

00:10:42--> 00:10:47

the world is performing better video to serve due to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:10:48--> 00:10:51

And it simply means to say I am a servant of Allah.

00:10:53--> 00:10:57

Our worship, Allah simply means obey Allah

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

as long as possible, in the judgment on people with the shape of

00:11:06--> 00:11:08

Allah. So Allah says,

00:11:09--> 00:11:13

the LMI or human being a man of kind of children of outer

00:11:16--> 00:11:19

shape on that you don't wash it.

00:11:20--> 00:11:25

I mean, how many people have seen or met in your life, all satanic worship are very few

00:11:26--> 00:11:28

of those few people are

00:11:30--> 00:11:32

solid, or whatever list

00:11:34--> 00:11:35

for either

00:11:36--> 00:11:37

a shape on

00:11:38--> 00:11:49

shape, which it means don't update the site. So it means to obey when you worship someone or something you basically obey, follow.

00:11:50--> 00:11:56

So the more you adhere to the Command of Allah Subhan Allah and His messenger,

00:11:57--> 00:12:18

Allah subhanaw taala guarantee, the more more closer to him in the worship, the more he will be protecting you, the more you want to ensure the more he will show, almost He will save His might and power to protect you and save you in a time of a great mood. Or maybe a tabula

00:12:21--> 00:12:28

rasa, those who have Taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala, allow him to provide for them, protect them.

00:12:31--> 00:12:32

A young man who married

00:12:34--> 00:12:48

a new Muslim, a new Muslim, female. She's from Russia. He said, We are a product of her family. She's old. She's was kidnapped by her family because she became Muslim. And they were very untie

00:12:49--> 00:13:01

somebody's religion. They put her into their heart and they're in their home for several days. Finally a minute to take it out of the house. I don't want to get a pass the only reason we traveled to Russia to get your passport.

00:13:02--> 00:13:12

So he said, for several days, we insist that you take a job, which cannot take possible in the picture for the passport with that job.

00:13:13--> 00:13:30

You start talking to them back and forth, back and forth. He refused. Then you said hospice, take after a job and take a picture. Let's leave. We want to go back. He works in debate, said I want to go back to my work. She said no Shala things will change. I will fight my rights. That's my

00:13:31--> 00:13:41

job and became Muslim additional perspective. And she said for several days, one day she woke me up in the night in the motel. And she said that.

00:13:42--> 00:13:52

Then you said I woke up and she told me I found it. And I said maybe she changed your mind. She'd give up she said tonight I was making a sniper. I was reading

00:13:53--> 00:14:11

your book, the one that you memorize is a half that you memorize. And I found the solution. Instead of you spending the night sleeping, look into what Allah says in the Quran. And she said it's just random always looking into the pages of the muscle and they kind of miss the verse will make you

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

we're still

00:14:21--> 00:14:41

a Masonic out of Washington committed submit surrendering himself or herself to Allah. Those who feel the watch the world's action to watch everything they do and to make sure that they do it according to the right way. According to the way that you please Allah. The more we do that the more protection and

00:14:43--> 00:14:46

support you will receive from Allah. So she said Allah Salman was

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

given an exit in a time of calamity and a provision when he needs that provision the most. And he said to Allah she brought nothing to me but tears that I found the chair

00:15:00--> 00:15:09

The man is so strong until just a few months listening to similar month muscle for six, seven months only open the smoke. But every man is so strong.

00:15:11--> 00:15:13

And he said, not

00:15:14--> 00:15:27

ours after that. We went back to the opposite one of the highway officer. He said I've seen you guys coming over today. What do you guys want? She told him and he said we are sitting in his office her password finish in less than one hour

00:15:32--> 00:15:35

and we came back together to debate.

00:15:37--> 00:15:55

You Yes, a booty Yes, Allah Subhana Allah Allah to worship Allah subhanaw taala in a time of calamity, in a time of dusk, and we'll see how you say what you told by the impatient by being content with what I was giving you don't show Objection, Your turn, say hello,

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

and also

00:16:34--> 00:16:44

the second thing that you see in the Quran speaks about love Keifa has protection and aid and support that you put your trust in Allah.

00:16:46--> 00:16:50

Allah to depend on almost pannacotta Allah so I'm gonna say that

00:16:54--> 00:16:59

this will depict the trust and depend on Allah, Allah is there sufficient

00:17:01--> 00:17:03

you will no one else

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

will do some kind of what to

00:17:07--> 00:17:13

Allah means you put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala in your heart while you're taking the necessary means.

00:17:15--> 00:17:17

You know, last night,

00:17:18--> 00:17:28

a doctor I give him a call late in the night, because my son was like coughing, coughing and stuff like an asthma. When I was worried about my time, and I just want to consult.

00:17:29--> 00:17:30


00:17:31--> 00:17:35

after a hang up with that phone call, I asked myself,

00:17:36--> 00:18:04

they may say, no, because a call but because the first thing came to my mind. The first thing when it came to my background was to call the doctor to us, which is the right thing to do. But I said to myself, You know what, the first thing should have come to my mind is first to turn to Allah to ask Allah subhanaw taala. To pray to my wallet first to protect my child and to heal him to come then I can do take the necessary means.

00:18:06--> 00:18:08

And that's not something I want, I wouldn't do it.

00:18:10--> 00:18:10

Because the

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

greater in your heart and the more trust you have, the more giving back you will receive from him.

00:18:21--> 00:18:22


00:18:23--> 00:18:30

one of the things that the prophets of salaam told us that it gives you that key fire that protection for Allah, the process of them centered

00:18:31--> 00:19:03

on Allah Allah in Asha Ruzicka. Were in martyred Hello Allah, Allah, guarantee for these things, three kinds of people the following that Allah give them their provisions, Allah, Allah will give them enough sufficient coverage because sometimes he gets money, but it's less efficient. And by the word sufficient money and never was based on our income is I remember when we were kids in high school, you know, we grew up with this like, what maybe in a week we get to attend our

But you know, we go to college to get $100 a week now he graduated he made maybe $3,000 Your things is getting different your your need is getting grow. And people we have, you know, different ways of spending the money. So it's about how this provision can be suficiente. Now personally, how much I must have sufficient is this income for you.

00:19:34--> 00:19:42

The purchasing instead it will be sufficient with every provision will be provided. And if you cannot protect you have to enter into into paradise.

one of

00:24:25--> 00:24:29

the prophets of salaam said if you see this from Allah, Allah,

00:26:41--> 00:26:50

And whoever seeks to please people, even if this is what leads to displeasing Allah, Allah subhanaw taala would leave him to his own.

00:26:51--> 00:26:53

No protection, no guaranteed protection.

00:26:54--> 00:26:58

That's why when is it asked? The governor

00:26:59--> 00:27:06

asked him, he said give me an advice. He said You know, the Khalifa you know, is basically

00:27:07--> 00:27:12

made believe that he is the one in charge and he put me in this position that he said

00:27:13--> 00:27:16

he's a tough enough he is it? What are

00:27:18--> 00:27:18

your any

00:27:21--> 00:27:42

any fear Allah more than is it and don't feel you need more than Allah. Feel Allah more than your boss more than your governor or more than your king, then you feel your king more than Allah, Allah protect you from this color of this president of this governor, but this governor cannot protect you from Allah.

00:27:43--> 00:27:56

Soon the angel of death will come to struggle from empowered on the throne and we'll get you down in the hall in a tiny Holdco grave. And in that grave, New Year's Eve or anyone can protect you except your deeds.

00:27:58--> 00:28:13

At the sufficient that you need, that the insurance policy that it will work with you even after your death. When you are in front of Allah when you are in front of the Hellfire about to pass over to your destiny which is gender insha Allah to call them

00:28:24--> 00:28:42

my brother and sisters, I asked him, to grant us all of us His protection, and his aid and his he dies guidance and now must permit Allah to protect us in the day and the night. Then all the time until we meet him Subhana town until we all settled in paradise.

00:28:43--> 00:29:09

Upon your interest of the mustard, we have two important things to look at an action items. One is blood drive. Go ahead and we shall open ended time to 10 we and our hop on our slot on the timesheet you can go and donate blood participate there was a great need that has a need of 1000 units, you know that unit that would need the put it back, we need 1000 units every day.

00:29:10--> 00:29:48

And there's no way we can collect that amount of money unless we all participate as a community. So that's something you can do and ask any doctors on any hospital, they'll tell you the importance of love to save lives. And unless we're gonna start saving one life equal to saving argument. So please take your time go there. We'll be here until three o'clock is our number two upon your entrance. Now upon exit, you will find a table and in this table a petition that it has the log of the muster. It's clearly Academic Center, our community here and this petition is addressed to the senator in the Congress. Okay.

00:29:49--> 00:29:59

These two petitions are in relation to the debate that we have today in our community about gun control. And I thought it would be a nice idea for our Muslim community to be part of that discussion.

00:30:00--> 00:30:03

into demand to demand

00:30:04--> 00:30:10

something as citizen these people represent us. And basically there is two points that I thought I

00:30:13--> 00:31:00

agreed upon. But I found out that my sister, my French, by him, disagree with me on it. But that's, that's what politics is about. But that's my opinion. If you share this, please sign it, put your zip code, put your first name, last name and sign it. And this is two points. One undemanding two things in this petition for law, Congress and Senate. Number one is to have what we call universal background checks. So if someone purchases a gun, we need to make sure that this person is not a criminal. In other states, it's not a person who have committed a crime or a person who had anything like that in other places and other agencies that the wanted for number number two, that I think we

00:31:00--> 00:31:10

do have a lot of law exists already, that it will have, you know, a control over guns, I think the problem is not gun control as much as it controls

00:31:11--> 00:31:55

controlling these guys knew using it in the wrong way. So what I'm demanding the other point the Congress to increase the funds, that it will be given to law enforcement to acclimate the law, want to get laws to prevent the usage of these guns in the wrong way. But the problem and to complicate these legal, illegal weapons on the street. The problem is the shortage of font, you can hire people enough to do that. So what our demand is to increase the budget instead of our budget going in things which is not necessarily very beneficial. So I'm demanding to vote for God to have more funds toward that. These two things you agree with you think it's a good idea, please go ahead and try to

00:31:55--> 00:32:13

sign it. And let's say we're going to mail a petition to the country I think that's part of our community. In general we should care about the concept but we living in as a community and we have a voice to voice our opinion about it. May Allah subhanaw taala benefit and it makes it beneficial in sha Allah Allah muffling Al Hamdulillah

00:32:15--> 00:32:16

Trina along with

00:32:17--> 00:32:18
