Alhamdulillah have a big island alameen
wa Salatu was Salam O Allah I should have had him via he was saying that mousseline while early he was the he jumped in.
Well praise belongs to Allah subhanho wa Taala
I made the Peace and blessings of Allah Subhana Allah to Allah 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 aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear brothers and sisters,
it is always a blessing
for us to come together and recognize
the many great things that Allah subhanaw taala does for us.
And bearing in mind that there isn't a moment, a minute or a second that passes, except that the loss of Panama either is helping us
and that our loss or penalty either is having mercy upon us from ways and places that many of us
we may never know.
But Allah subhanaw taala will protect you and will love you, and will help you in so many ways. For the majority of that time, you may never know.
But the test really is, even though that
may be for the majority of the time, when Allah subhanaw taala may keep things away from you or protect you. Will you be thankful for those things.
I saw a picture
and this picture was of the holiest place on Earth.
The purest, the most sacred place on Earth,
which no doubt is mucker.
But even more than that, the Kava itself,
which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam spent 13 years in Mecca, trying to call his own people to serve and worship Allah soprano to either being persecuted and being tortured and oppressed and then having to leave that place and spending 10 years in Medina only to then be given victory by Allah subhana wa tada at years later
that this being the purest of places, the best of places
it was virtually empty. That's a lot of water today. Virtually empty.
And then you ask yourself, that the purest of places the best of places a place when in which one Salah one prayer offered in that place is equal to 100,002 prayers
comparable to any other Masjid 100,000 Press. But yet for salata, you could count the lines around a kappabashi differ.
So the question you asked Is that why is this the case?
Why was it so empty so lots of water today?
It was and I don't think you will find a day in the Holy Year.
And there is no day like today in the whole year that you will find like that the Kava today.
Because all of those people who made that journey or happen to be in MCC, realize that there is only one place to be
not because that place is any holier
or that the Salah there is worth any more because that is not equal to the Salah. In the cabinet or around the Kaaba
artifact is outside the huddle.
But all of those people have gone to another place. Because our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam taught us and commanded us that those who are performing hajj to be there, on this day of alpha
a day which
in all reality to all of us, is a day unimaginable really happens.
When you imagine when you think about 2 million people attending one place at one time, for the space about six hours
and that every single person there has gone there with their own wishes.
desires and dreams, everything that you can imagine
that have gone there.
And bearing in mind, they've spent maybe one or two or three days in the state of Iran
and that the weather is amazingly hot.
But they have gone there. And they have forsaken families time, many, many things. But all of that will seem insignificant.
Everything else doesn't mean very much.
Because being there
and the planes of effort
is only for chosen
only for a chosen few amount of people.
If you think that Muslims are a billion or more around the world, only a few of them are chosen each year to make that journey. A call upon Allah subhanaw taala. 2 million people within the space of those time between Lahore and salata, Maghreb, how many hours would any one of you make?
And what would you make, there are four,
maybe you have or they would have had lists, given to them by other people that ask Allah Subhana Allah to remember to, to, to grant me this to grant me that to help me in this to help me in that. And you have a list of all these people who asked you to make dua because you were a chosen person to be there on that day.
Just take one example of just one person and maybe the duras would run into hundreds, maybe they would run into 1000s.
Now, when you multiply that by the amount of people that are there,
let's say 2 million or 3 million, whatever it is,
that there are sounds, duras That being said, repeatedly and over again.
And knowing that Allah subhanaw taala hears every single sound.
And he has every single day on the plains of arafat.
And when you add to that as well, that the millions of Muslims around the world
who are not on the plains of Allah Fett,
who are also making dua, all around the world,
that not one single day is unheard by Allah subhanaw taala.
Every single sound every single day, even the thoughts that come into your mind of thoughts that come into your heart,
that are lost a penalty either hears that or knows what is in your heart knows the level of your sincerity
knows the level of your order, the amount of energy that you have in making dua to Allah subhanaw taala In fact, a lot jell O Allah knows what you're going to say in the future before you even say it.
And that allows your panel to either hearing all of these two hours just on this one day, like he
does every day.
Because our last panel Tyler
does not sleep, does not slumber does not feel any tightness. Let her do who say nothing will No, no sleep, no sun but affects a larger lavalla
that 24 hours a day in our existence. A loss of penalty is everything.
And that those sincere servants of Allah so panel to Allah, but Allah Jalla wa that will answer every single day.
When you think about that,
you should never ever, ever feel left alone.
Regardless of what position or whatever situation that you are in, that you are never ever alone,
because Allah so panel to Allah will always hear you.
And if you are sincere to him, Allah subhanaw taala will never ever forsake you.
But any shortcomings we have any down feelings or sadness,
that is from ourselves and from shaytaan.
Because if you're dealing with a loss or penalty early, you should know that you're dealing with one who will never forsake you and never leave you.
And I'll give you an example.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam entered the masjid once
at a time where it was unsolo time
and he found a companion whose name was Abu Mema
or the Allahu anhu. So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said to he said to him, mainly the big lesser Kahuna, Hannah. Yeah, ma'am.
What is made you sit here?
It's not prayer time.
He said, y'all Rasul Allah Almighty.
messenger of Allah,
that sadness, and all of these thoughts in my mind have overcome me. And I don't know what to do. And I've got debts.
I have debts and all these thoughts and sadness and I don't know what to do.
If somebody comes to you, or you're advised or you need advice, you have debts or you have something like that something needs sorting out, what will you do? Maybe we'll go and say, you know, you need to borrow some money from somebody else to cover that debt because it's being asked to be paid back now.
If you can hold Brother,
you feeling cold? You I am brother, I'm feeling cold as well. I'm almost shivering.
So we may look for a solution in in finding somebody fast to to help that that particular debt that I have.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said to a woman,
he said, let me tell you some words.
Words, not let's go to the market. And you know, let's bring up some trade and buying and selling and and fix up your debts. No.
Let me teach you some words that if you save them, that there will be a solution there for you.
So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, You have to repeat this
along in the arrows will become in harmony with a
woman and kastelli will edges along the in the arrows will become an elevated Dini, we'll call her the
six things were mentioned.
Oh Allah I seek refuge,
you seek a loss of penalties, protection and help and aid. And this is not a that is said with your tongue.
Of course, it is said with your tongue.
Or what we are saying here when it is said or when you say it,
that it comes from your heart.
And then it appears on your tongue
that you ask a colossal penalty either to protect you, to help you to give you aid from Ilham will has an older person
and him all those thoughts that may occur in the future that haven't happened yet.
So you're asking Allah subhanaw taala to protect you from those thoughts about things which maybe we don't have knowledge of, but that you think they're going to happen,
and an herzan with that sadness about those things, which have happened in the past.
So you seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala for all of those potential thoughts that the SharePoint may bring to you about things that have happened in the past and also in the future.
And also from alleges, or Cassidy will alleges that you seek refuge in Allah subhanaw taala from being lazy, or not doing anything about the situation that you're in.
And also from urges, from the inability to do something. You don't want to be in a position where that you can't do anything. You want to be in a position where you have the ability to do something. And so then you go and do it.
And fifthly Did you ask a lot of people to allas aid and protection
from the burden of any deaths
and likewise from the oppression of other men?
These were the words that were taught to Abu Omar mala de la Juan.
Nirmal Kalam when Mr. Pie
he said how blessed did that speech was and how blessing the one who taught me it was
he went away and continued to make this
until his debts were removed.
You may ask how his debts were removed.
All you need to know at the end of the story is that he had no more debts. And he had no mobile thoughts. And he had no more sadness.
That first and foremost he turned back to Allah subhanho wa Taala.
But also penalty had answered his application
and that every single Muslim who turned up went to that place today in our refer to had the great blessing to be there. And likewise here we are fasting or not fasting, whatever the case may be, but we have come to hear beneficial words or throughout the day. I praise the loss of power to add to the larger lavalla he has that
and that you will be rewarded for that.
That you asked for something
and no and you have that
within yourself, but the last panel will answer this application without any doubt.
Because the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us in a hadith and kotse
and this hadith in quotes is a hadith and our theme is, it is a great Hadith because the meaning is so profound.
Allah subhanaw taala he tells us, that I am with my servant, as he thinks of me.
So, the greater thoughts The greater the husband of one they say in Arabic, the more you have, you know, the highest status
that you have that Allah azzawajal has in your life, know that Allah subhanaw taala has you even more
because if you read
the remaining part of that Hadith
it talks about a person
or a sponsor talks about a person who if he comes to me the distance of a hand span I go towards him the the length of an arms span and he comes to me jogging or comes to me yeah jogging I will come to him running.
So, what have you do towards the loss of penalty at a loss of talent, I will do more for you.
So Allah subhanaw taala will answer your Do you have certainty of that?
That the loss of penalty either will give you what you are asking for immediately.
Or Allah subhanaw taala will protect you from what you're asking for because you believe it is good for you. While La Jolla Allah one time later Allah moon, but Allah knows and you don't know
that thing that you're asking for is not good for you. So Allah subhanaw taala keeps it away from you.
Or Thirdly, our last panel title will save that what you're asking for,
until the hereafter.
So whatever the situation, the true believer who understands that derives in this manner like this, they are in a win, win win or beneficial, beneficial situation, that there was no casada for there's no loss for them at all. Only when they allow themselves to listen to Chevron.
To bring them down, to bring negativity, to bring about pessimism. And then ultimately to have bad thoughts about a loss or penalty either. Because it's important for us to understand that these are the paths that the shaitaan will take to bring about sadness and thoughts and things like that. And then eventually saying, why isn't Allah subhanaw taala answering
what's happening here, that there's a goal that he wants you to reach?
It is important for us to completely turn away from that kind of thinking.
You'll do it will it be answered immediately. Can you say that I was so sincere today.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 13 years in
the Muslims being martyred. Some of the Muslims being held and shown their own parents being killed in front of them.
amount of new Yasser for the Allahu who was made to look at his own mother being martyred in front of him.
Bella Leonora bajo de la Ronn
being punished in the intense heat
metta natural law when is the victory of Allah subhana wa to earlier Rasul Allah, we upon the hungry upon the truth, what is happening here the punishment the oppression is becoming too much
the profits ally same informed them, that the people in the past that he would say la la lala,
that they would be placed on something like this a table.
And I'm in shock, because saw would be brought and to cut them in half because of their belief having reached this stage like this,
and it reached this extent that the believers were being dropped in half like this, to this extent.
This is what the example that the Prophet Edison wanted to give them for them to be patient
and the duras and our attachment to Allah subhanaw taala is not how you want it, or how you like it.
Because you should know that you're dealing with a loss or penalty Allah, who is more merciful to you than your own mother,
more merciful to you than your own father, who will procreate who will proclaim their love to you quite rightly so.
Because nobody in this dunya will love you like your mother and your father.
And Allah subhanaw taala will be more merciful to you than then.
This is who you are calling upon.
And once or the sooner that
We realize this, who we are speaking to and who we are calling upon, the sooner that our lives will change.
The sooner that things will change for the better.
There is no such thing as pessimism, or negativity or sadness, but rather there is optimism.
And that there is hope in our last panel to either
when Ibrahim Alayhi Salam was commanded by Allah subhanaw taala to take his family in the middle of nowhere
in the story of mentioned in Nepal
and then to tell his family to stay there, and then he was walking away.
And he left his wife her job, and his son is married Elisa
began walking away.
After a time he began to ask him shouting, where are you going? We're in the middle of nowhere here. Are you going to leave us?
Allah subhanaw taala had commanded Ibrahim to leave his family there and for him to go.
She was calling him calling him but he did not turn around and he did not answer
until she said to him,
has Allah commanded you with this?
Then Ibrahim Ali Salim turned around and said Ajay, this was the commander of our last panel.
So what was her reply? She was not an Obi Wan obeah wasn't a prophet.
But her attachment to Allah subhana wa tada was that she said in Allah holy you will be here and then therefore Allah subhanaw taala will not forsake us.
If Allah subhanaw taala has told you to do go to for you to go for us to stay here, then we will be fine.
Quite simply, there is no water here. There's nothing here.
But Allah subhanaw taala will look after us.
Allah so penalty either. Near millimolar one m&r says
that the loss of penalty is the best of masters and the best of the one who will help and give victory to the true believers.
of Allah He said after
so many years was suffering from an illness called upon Allah subhanaw taala. And the mystery of
the harm has afflicted me
or Allah make me from the patient.
Yes, in the know who saw the Allah, Allah subhanaw taala tells us that he found a Eubalaena Salim a patient servant.
But when he made this dua to Allah so penalty added this affliction as has
finished me off.
We're under our hammer Rafi mean, but you are the Most Merciful
that affliction that has come to you that difficulty or the trial that has come to you, even in the form of a blessings upon Allah.
There's a trial that you are given a child or wife, or wealth, whatever the case may be that as a child from Allah subhanaw taala. How will you go back to Allah subhanaw taala. Because we are all here, brothers and sisters for a very, very short time.
Don't be deceived.
And don't deceive yourself. When you think that you are convincing yourself.
If you asked when you will die,
maybe it's 60 or 70.
Even that, that's nothing.
If you live for 100 years, it's nothing.
When you compare to what we are waiting,
what we are waiting for is eternity
which will have absolutely no end
in muffle jannetty or immofinanz
either in the blessing paradise May Allah subhanaw taala make us from inhabitant of agenda
or the hellfire.
It is not logical at all that the person would risk
forsaking just a few years and this worldly life, for having an eternity, of blessings of mercy. And even if you think about
if you just want to think about or focus on one thing, because there are any things you can think about in the agenda, what you would like
maybe you can think about having a nice car or a house or you know, worldly things.
Of course you may like those things and that's fine.
But if there's one thing that is something, you know, that really is really close to you
I would like to meet rasulillah.
And I'd like to talk to him.
If that was one thing that really allows me to focus on or hold on to that one thing
that anytime I feel like sadness or I feel down
I will allow myself to go beyond that. And think that I would like to be from the people of gender.
And I would like to be with the viola,
the prophet of mercy.
The one that my whole time in this world the life anew halal and haram. I learned it from him sal Allahu Allah Himself.
Or if it is something else,
but you have a focus, to allow yourself to achieve that goal. And never be never be swayed or turned away from that.
Never allow the shape on or recorded regardless of your situation, to turn you away from them.
Because the sooner we realize that whom we are addressing and speaking to Allah subhanaw taala The sooner believed in one loyalty, the sooner every single one of us Our lives will change.
There is no Mr Heald with Allah subhanaw taala there is no impossibility. Whatever you wish would you desire for then Allah subhanaw taala can give that to you.
You just need to have that certainty and knowledge and attachment to Allah subhanaw taala
under the first thing that comes to your mind,
even if it is the first steps of your child to walk,
or do their first words, the first thing that you will remember, who placed that happiness in your heart,
Who allowed you the enjoyment to see your child talk or walk or eat or whatever the case may be, whatever enters into your heart that makes you feel happy, who gave that to you?
It was a loss of power to Allah.
So at all times, on all occasions, firstly And lastly, that you thank Allah subhanaw taala
that is only the deen of Allah so panel to Allah and the guidance of Allah subhanaw taala that would allow any single one person to have a true happiness in this world and ultimately in the hereafter.
So May Allah so panel to Allah, allow us to be from the accepted people on this blessing day to day
may Allah so panel to either protect us from all forms of misguidance and sadness in any West facade from a shape on
my last panel to either accept the hedge of all of those people who who made hedge this particular year And may Allah so panel to allow us to make hedge once again or for the first time in the future. And may Allah so panel to answer all of our supplications
whether they are small to us, or big to as whatever they may be, may Allah subhanaw taala answer every single one of them and ask Allah subhana wa tada that you leave this dunya in a state that Allah subhanaw taala is pleased with you.
May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to die in a state or in a time where our last speech is La ilaha illallah
