Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillah
wa Salatu was Salam.
ala alihi wa sahbihi wa Minister nabeshima t elomi Dean.
Indeed Oh praise is due to Allah subhanahu wa Tada. And may the peace and blessings be upon his final messenger Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and upon all the prophets and messengers who preceded him Allah Hema salatu salam. Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh cattle, my dear brothers and sisters and respected elders.
Somewhere in there, there was a salon
so maybe I'll say again, I don't usually like to repeat it, but since there was like one reply, I'll say it again. Now salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
Lil Manasa the Prophet Allah He did tell us after salah and Marina community to spread Salam amongst ourselves and it is one way of joining our hearts together.
And it's a great honor for me in that
this particular Masjid is known to me not because I've been here before, but because of its status.
one of the if not the founder, Chef Abdullah bin, Rahim Allah tada Allah from Ottawa say I want to tell you about love of Allah. May Allah have mercy upon was one of the founders of the masjid and in fact one of our imams who is still at at monteggia came a number of years ago when Shambala no mo when he passed away to attend the janessa. So the mustard itself is well known to me. And it is a great honor really for me to be here. And a great honor for me to meet my my brothers and sisters are here in Denmark and to meet them to find out what it is like here as a Muslim in Denmark to share ourselves whatever knowledge we have with one another. So I ask Allah subhana wa tada to to
bless us on this particular evening. And that I ask Allah subhanaw taala that he allows us
to have another gathering, as we are gathering now in the highest place of agenda, allow me
now, the topic of Euro of supplication, turning to Allah subhanaw taala advocating all different words that can be used.
How really to talk about such a topic in in this time that we have here together.
So what I'd like to really focus on is the best of speech is the speech of Allah subhanaw taala and none of us will disagree on that. halal khademi Kalam, Allah subhanho wa Taala the best speech is the speech of a lodge in Nevada. And then within the Quran itself, that you find that there are a number of different supplications different that you can that you can make.
So you when you go from the very beginning of the Quran, from the very beginnings to Panama, that there was a drought. Did you ever think about that? Did you ever know that in every salon that you make the Quran that you read that you are making? Did you realize that did you think about that? Did you think about what you are asking for
the beginning of Al Fatiha
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen you begin In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful. All praise is due to a law the Lord of the worlds of man over him the Most Merciful, the Most Beneficent
that he soprano Matata is the Owner of the Day of Judgment.
Maliki Ahmed in the king on that day,
he cannot abou Karna Stein, that you alone we worship a new alone we seek eight
when you supplicate after praising Allah subhanaw taala. Purely that you say he did not say Oh, Paul must have been Idina. This
is not just you. Even though you may be praying at home alone. Nobody around you. You say Idina
Guide us. So when you're in the gym, or when you're in the congregation, you're making to alpha one another, Oh Allah guide us. And when you are alone, you're making draft for your fellow Muslims, when they are not with you, Oh Allah Guide us to the straight path.
So five times a day, the amount of rocking out 17 times a day you recited 30 that you are supplicating and at the end of the 30, what do we all say?
mean? Or law answer, this supplication that I have just made.
So then, when you go further through the end, that there are many types of drama.
And in fact, the loss of pantalla teaches us
the stories of the prophets, Allah him salatu salam. And the last panel to Allah tells us and teaches us the supplications that they made to Allah subhanho wa Taala they were the best of people. And its shape with Islam, even Tamia, Rahim Allah, He says that Allah subhanaw taala taught us the supplications of the prophets and messengers in the Quran. so that we may know the humbleness and the status of the prophets and messengers, when they would turn to Allah subhanaw taala. So likewise, when we turn to a loss of generality, we remember the humbleness and the attachment that they had to Allah subhanaw taala
and we will need to look at our own selves, our attachment to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Because we know that a loss of penalty Allah tells us concerning this poor earn in hell or earn a de la t upon this, earn this book of Allah subhanaw taala will guide you to that what is the best and the most upper right
now what Allah subhanaw taala teaches us guides you to that what is the very best,
whatever advice Allah subhanaw taala gives to you, that is the very best possible advice that could be given to you. You know, when you seek advice from your brother or your sister, maybe from time to time, they give you an advice, and then you ask another person, then you find that advice was better than the first or the third was better than the second.
The advice that allows the panel to Allah gives to you is the very best advice. The no better advice could possibly be given concerning that matter that allows to penalty either that he teaches you.
So when we look at the end, we look at the book of Allah subhana wa Tada. And we look at the different certifications that Allah subhanaw taala has taught us. And we look at the status of the NBA, the prophets and messengers, because they're real life examples for all of us. There are examples that we all want, and we wish to follow.
So when we look at the story of Ibrahim alayhis salam,
or we look at the story of Eunice and he said in the story of Mossad, he said, we find that on every occasion, when there was nothing else they had, except Allah Subhana Allah, you found that they would turn to Allah subhanaw taala.
But they wouldn't be relying on the people.
And they wouldn't be relying on anything else.
Let me give you an example.
You all know the story of Messiah, he said that Allah subhanaw taala chose him
and allies have sent him to fill around the greatest tyrant of his time
to take Benny Islam eel away from from men of Islam in essentially were the slaves and did all the hard work and everything around
now for moosari SLM to go there and say, let me so I let them free let them go, is essentially saying that your empire will now crumble. You won't have these people to direct and slave anymore. Let them go. Cause he rejected that.
There's no way that around by his own choice was going to let Bennett slide away.
So moosari Sarah man, the story is long, that they escaped musallam and his brother Harun that they took the people away by Israel away from around and they reached
that they reached the sea.
They reached the end of the sea.
Behind them was the army of crown swords polled on chariots and horses, ready to slay them down. And in front of them was the depths of the sea.
Would you like to die drowning? Or would you like to die by the sword? It's your choice
in Moodle, raccoon. That's what they said to Moosa
banner is right, there is a demo. Sorry, Sam. That's it. We have been caught. There is no way out, nothing left. But if you look carefully at the story of Musa alayhis salam,
from the very beginning, the musala salam had a mission, that there was a job that needed to be completed.
That Musan a seller who was placed into a basket or something like that, and placed into the river to survive that, for them to be brought up and to live in the house of this great tyrant.
And then to go away because of the incident of the incident of accidentally killing the man and having to leave and return to musala. Sara knew that he had a mission to complete. And he realized that he knew that Allah subhanaw taala would never ever forsake Him. Never.
When you bear all of this in mind,
when you bear all of this in mind, and that what Musashi said and what he went through the trials and tests that he faced
to take Benny Israel away from around.
And then for Ben, who is an artist benefits, I'll just say in lamudi raccoon that we have been caught that said it is over
His answer at that particular time when you take everything into context, it is amazing. The amount of certainty that he had in a larger Nevada array, he said,
because what did he say? Let me think about a plan. What can we do? Maybe can we bargain with with around? No,
No, we are not caught
in my era be sad that my Lord is with me. And He will guide
my Lord is with me and He will guide when there was no possible way out. He turned to Allah subhanaw taala he called upon Allah subhanaw taala put all his trust and reliance on our last panel tiada can in Europe be a dean, my Lord is with me and He will guide
so Allah subhanaw taala commanded musala he said, to strike to strike to the sea with his stick and it
and when it is revealed that they were saved,
the power of supplication the power of one's attachment to Allah subhana wa tada
when you look our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
When on how many occasions that all odds were stacked against the Muslims, all odds.
If you look at the Battle of Belgium,
where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam managed to bring together just over 300 men
aged between 15 all the way up to into people in their 50s
these were not young strapping men fully armed, fully ready with the latest technology that they had at the time.
These were men
who, if you looked at them, were just picked from anywhere.
But this if you look looked at them on the outside,
because if you compare them the 312 or 313 Muslims, compared to the machete cone of the Quraysh, who had 1000 strong army, fully loaded with horses and camels and chain mail, and swords and arrows and bows, and drums fully prepared. You look at the two and you say
no comparison. These people have no chance
of a night before the battle.
And this is really the point I want to focus on, not the battle itself because we're talking about supplications and
that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, while Allah azza wa jal placed upon them what meaning and nor is asleep arrest before the battle, that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam stood up for prayer.
He said the law Edison stood up for prayer while the people rested.
And he raised his blessed hands Elisa to sell them supplicating to Allah subhanaw taala calling upon the one
and this is key, because they have no clue and Rahim Allah He mentions in his book,
a lot of the left in
his book talking about the
the trial or the plans of a shed on how you can save yourself from them. In that book he mentions he says that whenever you call upon a loss of panel to either remember that you are calling upon the one
who put you in that test, you are calling upon the one who is testing you. So don't ask the creation to help you. Don't ask your fellow man to help you. Or ask the one who is testing you to give you relief
to deliver you from that situation.
And unobvious Allah Allahu alayhi wa sallam with his companions, their 315 willing to sacrifice them, sacrifice themselves for Allah subhanaw taala but the point that the beautiful of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam calling upon Allah subhanaw taala saying you're a law, that we are Your servants
and we are the only ones who are truly worshipping you as you
are to be worshipped.
That if we are destroyed if we are removed from this earth, then who will there remain on this earth to propagate your deen to worship you correctly?
That he raised his hands until the garments his clothes began falling off his shoulders.
His dryer was so intense, that Abubakar of the Allahu anhu he saw the prophet Elijah ceram he said enough era Salalah Enough is enough.
This was the attachment that I will ever know based on the law while he was setting them and musalla he said them and all the prophets and messengers that they had with Herbalife and I mean,
that if any one of you desires are wants something,
and that you have a level of sincerity, a level of trust, reliance on the loss of power to Allah.
Allah will give that to you.
If you have doubts in it, if you think it may not happen, the somehow that you rely on the creation somehow,
then you have not turned to Allah subhanaw taala in a way that he deserves,
and even Subhanallah even if you dedicate your whole self, you have given the very best supplication that you can offer,
with the purest of sincerity,
the utmost in reliance, then you know yourself, that you fall short.
And that you know that Allah subhanaw taala is deserving of more than you could possibly possibly give.
Even as the Prophet salallahu alayhi wa sallam, he stated that if all of mankind they came together, and all that goodness and righteous were to be put in the heart of one person.
Imagine if you could concentrate all that righteousness and goodness into the heart of one person, that would not increase
what Allah subhanaw taala possesses one iota in his dominion, and his control of the affairs of subhana wa Tada.
And likewise, if somebody, you were to concentrate all the shuttling evil into the heart, it would not affect a lot jell O Allah has dominion and kingship and sovereignty over the whole of the universe.
So whatever you can offer, that you know that last panel tiada
that he deserves more, and that you fall short. But yet, he's to Panama Taylor, that He gives you more,
that He gives you more, that he's more merciful to you.
He loves his servants and is more merciful to his servants than you can ever imagine.
And if you take the example that the Prophet
Allahu alayhi wa sallam that he took, and gave to his companions
after a battle,
and in fact, before I mentioned that, for those of us
that are mothers,
if there's one person that you were to choose in your life,
that you rebelled against her maybe, or you rebelled against, you know, a number of people, and you wronged them and you oppress them. If there's one person that will overlook and forgive you, it'll be it'll be your mother.
For years, you disobeyed her for days, you were wrong to her. But your mother is your mother. And if you go back to your mother,
she'll accept you, because she loves you, because she is your mother.
And the love for a mother that she has for her child is not equal to him by the Father.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
on an occasion when there was a battle, and I'm sure you know, the well known Hadith that a woman she was frantically looking for her child. For mother. If you know she misses her small child in the masjid just for a few seconds.
She feels worried. This is a place of security a Masjid for father misses his child or has his daughter just for a few seconds in a place of security. How do you feel? What about you've missed your child after a battle? When bloodshed everywhere,
only then for that mother to find her child.
Then the mother takes the child embraces the child. Here the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to the Sahaba you see that woman there? Do you think
that she would throw her child back into the fire?
The Sahaba the Allahu anhu said
she would never do such a thing. Because at that particular moment, the concentration of love and mercy that she would have for her child, bearing in mind, it's after a battle, it would be difficult to find a time a mother would feel towards a child like that.
Allah subhanaw taala as the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us that Allah who are Hammurabi, a bird he
neuralyzer is more merciful to his servant than this woman is to her child at this time.
This just gives us an example of how merciful Allah subhanaw taala is
that allows mercy has no restrictions. But also penalty Allah's mercy has no cruddud allows mercy campuses encompasses everything.
While it was the articulation,
Allah subhanaw taala says and my mercy encompasses everything.
And when you think about that, and you say it to yourself, and you say it again, and you say it again. And you say again, what it was at coleccion My Mercy, the mercy of Allah, Allah, Allah, it encompasses everything.
The next time that you turn to Allah subhanaw taala and supplication,
the next time that you ask Allah subhana wa Taala for something
and you are a servant who is doing your best to worship Him, to serve Him, to carry out his commands, to stay away from his prohibitions
will allow will allow us penalty will he deprive you
and even what you are asking for, that you believe to be in your benefit to be in your Muslim?
Allah Subhana Allah, He knows best.
And he knows best that what you are asking for,
it will harm you.
But we don't know that.
We don't know that. I think that what I'm asking for will be in my benefit.
However, Allah subhanaw taala knows that if he grants it to us, it will cause you harm and it may take you away from Allah subhanaw taala may take you away from him.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala
does not decreed or does not give that thing that you are asking for. Because it's in your benefit.
Then suddenly that servant complains to Allah. Oh Allah how long I have been asking for this. Oh Allah how much sadaqa I have given or law. You know how
I have struggled and strived, but I'm not getting it.
Do you not ever think? Or do we not ever think that Eliza gel is not giving that to us? Because it is not in our benefit,
that there are certain people who are not made rich, because if they were made rich, it would break them.
And that there are certain people that they are made poor.
Because if they were made rich, it would break them. And the rich people, if they were made poor, it would break them.
If one has understandings of matters like this,
and that they know that there is no way out, there is no answer. There's no one who truly to rely on except Allah subhanaw taala you will find yourself at all times on all occasions, turning to Allah subhanaw taala.
Even in those matters, where you know, your brother or your sister, they can help you. But before you go to them, did you ask a librarian to make it easy for you?
You ask them to get something you want to borrow something you need some help from them, they can quite easily give it to you. But before you do that, that you ask Allah subhanaw taala to make it easy for you, to facilitate for you.
And that you bear in mind that the supplication of the prophets and the messengers throughout the Quran is something that allows you to didn't just reveal these areas for us just to just move over and not to think about, but rather to think about to ponder over and to see how merciful. Allah subhanaw taala is
the last panel to Allah concerning Eunice la salatu salam,
when he was in the belly of the whale,
a messenger or a prophet of Allah subhanaw taala was swallowed by a whale.
Do you believe that?
You believe that a whale swallow the man
will lie I believe that? Well, I believe that.
Why? Because Allah subhanaw taala told me in the Quran.
I believe that
when the you know, maybe you're questioned or you something comes to you. This is a manifestation of you showing your certainty and and you're Amen. with what Allah subhanaw taala gave to you.
And then you read the story of university salatu salam.
in leaving his home leaving his people and that he was
in the belly of the whale.
And that he turned to a loss of pinata, Anna.
As Allah subhanaw taala tells us for the fifth Zulu mat
and that he called upon Allah subhanaw taala in the darkness.
Allah Illa in
that there is no one who is deserving of any worship except you.
subhanak Glory be to You. In the consuming avoid, I mean, I was from the wrong
I was from the wrongdoers
when you look at the manner when you look at from the Adam, that this dryer is made in such a dire and difficult situation or law helped me get me out of here know
the first thing that he mentioned here for lumut Allah Allah in the Super Hornet
that there is no one worthy of worship except you a loss of Hannah wattana Glory be to You in the criminal volume in
that I was from the wrongdoers. I was from the wrongdoers I done something wrong.
So Allah subhanaw taala tells us this is an application. This is the one person
one person speaking with a loss of pinata Allah.
So Allah subhanaw taala tells us first the Japan Allah that we all said his supplication
one or Jaina hoomin
and that we saved him from the downside down feelings that he was in. We saved him from that.
Walk early can mean a lot of water.
And likewise, we will save the believers.
So you make this
make this application either Hey,
In the Super Hornet in economy of the mean, that there was no one worthy of worship except you Glory be to You. I am from the wrongdoers. We will have mistakes, but also pinata will save you regardless of your situation.
By His mercy, he will save you and have certainty in that. Because once you realize the power of supplication, once you realize the power of you calling upon a loss of power to either
you will feel one of the most powerful people in the world, not because of your money, not because of your position, because you are addressing and you are speaking to the one who is in control of all of this.
Because you remember a day will come
when it will be suddenly money.
To whom does the kingship and the Dominion belong to now, the names, the money, the position, all of this, who does it belong to now?
that it belongs to Allah alone.
It belongs to Allah azza wa jal, the alone The irresistible, the all powerful, the old Supreme, this is what belongs to
the no leaf falls from any tree, no fish that swims in the sea, no, and the crawls upon the earth.
that this is by the permission of Allah subhanaw taala.
So my dear brothers and sisters,
in the short words that I've mentioned, I hope to have
given a message about the power of
about the power of supplication
and that if you truly use this in the way that it needs to be used, that we will see our affairs we will see our situation change like you cannot imagine
our situation and we can look around and we can you know we can give each other tissues and you know, cry over a situation. Yes, we're in a bad situation. We all Yes, there's lots of problems. So what are we going to do about it?
How are you going to return to and who you're going to ask?
Ask Allah subhana wa tada
because Allah subhanaw taala tells us,
call upon me and I will answer you.
Call upon me. And I will answer you. will either sir locate a birdie and knee for any query? If my servant asks for me, I'm close.
I will answer the call of the one who's calling
this one last panel Dallas told us Let's not turn away from that brothers and sisters. Let us renew, strengthen further our relationship with Allah subhanaw taala and never belittle never belittle the power of
May Allah subhanaw taala make us from those who truly have trust in Allah subhanaw taala May Allah subhanho wa Taala rectify the affairs of the of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam May Allah subhanaw taala make us from the people of Paradise and protect us from the hellfire. May Allah subhanaw taala protect our youngsters, our youth, our young boys, girls, and allow them to be upon the straight path and be with those whom we love. As the Prophet sallallahu I assume that you will be with whom you love melas which will make us and have the companionship of our beloved Mohammed Salah la Hasan and hereafter or sallallahu wasallam Mubarak and under Buna Mohammed, while early he was a demain
Assalamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh
