indeed Oh praise and thanks is due to Allah to Baraka with Allah. I bear witness that there is none worthy of worship except Allah. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa early was Selim is his phone and messenger and servant.
My dear brothers and sisters,
on this blessed day of algebra, I want to discuss an integral and important part of our faith of our Eman.
Now we all know that the our carnal Eman are the pillars or articles of faith, that they are six. And from them is a man who built
our belief in the Divine Decree of Allah subhanaw taala. Later, he will surely
the good from it, and the bad from it.
But it is of the utmost importance as a Muslim as a believer that we have the correct understanding concerning this very important article of faith.
And what comes from this stems from our belief in Divine Decree is that the believer has personally been
has no vulnerability
that the believer has good thoughts about his load that he is or she is beautiful, that they are optimistic by that what Allah subhanaw taala has for them in the future. This means that we're not going to be negative people.
It means that we will not complain about what Allah
pinata has in store for us now. All that will happens in the future.
If we look carefully at the prophets, Allah Hema salatu wa sallam, we will find that they were all reached the very highest limits
and really excelled in what it means to have good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala to remain optimistic, regardless of the situation, not to be weak, not to be negative, or to feel a victim of the circumstances that they have been put in.
But they understand that this is the decree of Allah subhana wa tada and it is upon us to make a change, to go back to Allah subhanaw taala and ask Allah, Allah Allah to help us improve the situation.
Understanding the verses, Surya, Allahabad there are three Yusra that Allah subhanaw taala will grant ease of the hardship understanding the importance of taqwa of Allah subhana wa Tada. When we attack a Lucha, Lucha de nuestra that whoever fears Allah Subhana Allah, then Allah allows your panel to either will make their affairs make their matters easy. This is the promise of our last panel to either
the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, whether they were on a journey, whether they were at home, in times of hardship, in times of ease, in times of extreme happiness, or difficulty, they will always have good thoughts about a loss or pain or to Allah, and our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as narrated by NSF pneumatic or the Allahu anhu. In Sahih Muslim, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, the Euro Devonian,
that optimism, it is beloved to me I love to be optimistic, which has a direct link to having good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala. And as we know, in the Hadith and Pudsey that the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said call Allahu taala on the end of ibdv, familyoven, Nabi Masha, that I will or I am as my slave thinks of me, so let him think or suspect what He wills of me. And in another narration, familyoven ob Hira then let him or her thing good about me.
Even if a person has so much since has involved in so much harm, that a time comes to that individual that they want to repent? But they have good thoughts about Allah subhanho wa Taala remembering in the La Jolla, Luba Jamia, but Allah subhanho wa Taala He forgives all sins.
We remember specifically how Allah subhanaw taala talks about the prophets, Allah him salatu salam in the Quran.
Allah Allah Allah mentioned some of them in detail, and some of them in less detail, but in all of them there is a benefit. So if we look at the story of Yunus Allah He Sallam consumed and swallowed by the whale.
Maybe an ordinary person would lose hope. But he called upon a loss of pinata either in a very famous de la isla subhanak in a two minute volley mean that there is none worthy of worship except you. And indeed, I was from the wrongdoers.
And if you paid special attention or you look carefully at what is being asked in this drama in this application is Eunice. It said I'm asking to be taken out of the whale to be returned to his family. But no,
is testifying and recognizing that all that is happening. There is none worthy of worship except Allah and that he was from the wrongdoers. AlLahi salatu salam.
So Allah subhanaw taala saved him and returned him to his family.
If we look at his smile, and he said him, and he Brahimi alayhis salam. How many years did Ibrahim Alayhi Salam make dua and long for a son, only then to be commanded to sacrifice his son his morale for a lot about a catellus sake, and no lost hope.
No complaining, but had good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala his smile and he said I'm replying to his father, that you will find me from the patient.
This is the status and the behavior of the prophets Allah Hema salatu salam in times of difficulty
when the people gathered
and they built a fire, so great that they could not come close to
But they wanted to throw Ibrahim Ali Salam into the fire. And he's just a young boy, a teenager.
So they had to build a catapult to throw the Prophet of Allah Allahu Allah into the fire because it was so intense
at this time,
what was the reply has to be? Allahu on me lucky
that our last panel, Allah is the one who is sufficient that he is enough for me. And he is the very best, who takes care of the affairs of his slaves.
If you look at Yaqoob,
who went through so many trials, losing his beloved son Yusuf Ali salam,
only going back to Allah subhanaw taala to ask for help. It is a story and it is mentioned in one beautiful surah in the Quran. Surah Yusuf.
It is a story of trials of patience, of sadness, of trust and reliance in and on the loss of penalty either
but never losing hope. Even though a great deal of time may pass, Yours may pass but never losing hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala having good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala
These aren't empty thoughts that we have. These aren't false promises that allow us to pinata Allah has given to us
but these are promises that our last panel to Allah will fulfill and to give to his obedient servants. So jacoba a solemn losing his children far and wide for suborn Jamil that how beautiful the patience is, as a la jolla tmap him Jamia, I have hoped that Allah subhanaw taala will bring them and return them to me in Nauvoo, who will allude Hakeem that he should partner with Allah is the old knowing the old wise.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam with 315 men made up of young Shabaab, older men, barely carrying some armor on them. Lightly
trained, very basic weaponry facing 1000 men
was full chain meal with horses with cavalry. But Avi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam never lost hope, had good thoughts about Allah subhanaw taala called upon Allah, Allah Allah that we are the ones only ones remaining on Earth, who are worshiping you alone,
to give us victory.
And as we know, we read to this day
that Allah subhanaw taala gave the believers Nasir better, gave victory to the believers at the Battle of better. This very small amount of people were able to overcome isn't Illa this great army
the Battle of Hazzard
where the Muslims were trapped inside the Medina where 10,000 of the disbelievers surrounded Almudena no way out the Muslims, they were to build the trench, relying on only Allah subhanaw taala to help them but the last panel to Allah describes, describes the trial in great detail in Surah.
In chapter number 33 of the Quran, when Allah so panel to Allah describes the enemies of Islam at the time is Joe coming in as well. I mean, that they came from above and they came from below.
With deserver till episode and the vision, the the sight of the believers, it grew wild in fear. Well, Bella, tell kulu will Hannah and the hearts at reached the throats out of fear the children, the women, no way out,
But we know Allah subhanaw taala tested them with a great test. However, our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was the very best and the most beautiful example and a coda for the Muslims to follow.
We know that
very commonly when we're talking about the club, the characters, the characteristics and the behavior of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wasallam. What verse is usually read the kodaka nella comfy rasulillah he was certain
that you have in the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam a most beautiful example. What time were these verses revealed? These are the verses that were revealed at the time when the Muslims were facing one of the greatest
tests that they had ever faced during the Battle of the Battle of the trench when the Muslims were surrounded by more than 10,000 of the enemies of Islam at the time, how soon no way out,
but hear a lot about a quarter it reminds us that we have in the messenger we have in the messenger most beautiful example, lemon kana yo la jolla oma.
A person who truly believes in Allah and the Last Day and remembers Allah subhanaw taala frequently
this time Allah subhanaw taala then reminds us this impact and how it affected the Muslims at that time.
Many many know
that there are from the believers min sada Kuma had Allah Allah, that they were true to the covenant and the agreement and the sacrifice they had that they had given for the sake of Allah subhanahu wa tada for men whom mencoba nabba from have them who had given what they had to give for the sake of Allah soprano to other women who may in total, and from them who are still waiting to give the ultimate sacrifice to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So when all things seem stacked against you, when the situation seems either A or B, and both scenarios are something which is you believe to your detriment, that is no good outcome for you. That you remember that Allah subhanaw taala can make
what you see as the impossible possible.
That higher goodness can come out of a situation from where you never knew. And this is the way of the prophets, Allah Hema salatu salam that allows your panel to Allah is with you and I, just as we think of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If we think about the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, the trials, the tribulations, the difficulties, the sacrifices, that he was born, and he never met his father. But he sallallahu wasallam was going to be a child of only six years old, and his mother would pass away, then passed on to the guardianship of his grandfather, only to be two years later to pass away, then to go and to live with his uncle, avatar live in a very difficult situation, in
poverty in difficulty,
striving, struggling to earn something to live upon,
that he would, throughout his life, be a witness to the death of all of his children, except one,
but he would be attacked by his own people.
They would bring the intestines of a camel and placed on his back, only prostrating to Allah subhanaw taala that that was the only reason a man Salalah who Edison who called to the worship of Allah azza wa jal alone,
they abandoned the Muslims for three years and starved them and how this affected the Muslims, that his wife Khadija de la and her, she passed away
due to the effects as well, of the embargo against the Muslims.
Despite all of this,
despite all of this, whenever a person met the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they would meet him and they will be overwhelmed by his optimism. They will be overwhelmed by His mercy, His rahama His mercy, his compassion, his love to do good for people,
because of his attachment to Allah subhanho wa Taala that he knew the promise of Allah subhana wa tada was something real, not something to just put in the hearts of the people, but was something that they would all be waiting for, in the hereafter. And that he would say you are Djiboutian. being optimistic, is something that I love. This is our leader. This is our Prophet Mohammed Sal, Allahu Allah, He will He will send them and it is his good word. It is his example that is upon us to follow, but to know to follow him. You have to know Him
and to know Him is to love him. And we ask Allah Subhana Allah to add to grant us the love for our Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam of Guru Kohli how that was done with your aloha Lea welcome in Cali them for several of you in know who who will go for him.
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah while early he was so happy he adjusted
praise belongs to Allah made the Peace and blessings of Allah be upon his final messenger Mohammed sal Allahu Allahu alayhi wa sallam My dear brothers and sisters,
and the second hood but I want to focus on an incident in the life of our beloved Nabi sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
which subjectively I believe is one of the most profound and the one of the most important lessons that we can take from the whole life of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
As we know, a nibi RSO Salaam he left macker, forcibly didn't want to leave, but had to leave and went to live in El Medina. He made the hedgerow la Sato Salaam, with the companions.
The most beloved place to the Prophet sallallahu Sallam was Mecca.
This way he was born, he was brought up, received revelation from Allah subhanaw taala.
Six years, he was away from the place that he loved the companions away from their families. For six years. The Prophet Alayhi Salaam had a dream. In the dream, he had assumed he had ROM and was making Amara.
Now the dreams of the prophets Allah him salatu salam, or Huck that they are the truth. So the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salat informed his companions that they were to perform Umrah.
In the sixth year of the Hitler
1400 companions 1400 assumed haram and went with the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam to go and perform Umrah.
Not for war, no preparation for war. Wearing a harem making the Tobia love bake Allahumma bake
the news it reached the Quraysh the disbelieving koresh and they stood in the way of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Christian What is wrong with these people?
What do they think is going to happen with a small amount of people who want to worship Allah subhanaw taala alone and for them to return to their people?
By Allah we will fulfill what Allah subhanaw taala has promised us. Even if I am the last man standing. I'm here to call the people to worship Allah subhanho wa Taala alone.
If Allah subhanaw taala grants me victory, or I will be taken by Allah subhanaw taala fulfilling my duty.
They stopped at a place called Allahu they be
at this place the Quraysh that is Bolivian Quraysh sent a number of emissaries to speak to the Muslims.
from them over at Masada, coffee.
A person at this time had great hatred for the Muslims and Islam.
He said to them to return there's no place for you here.
He eventually took the bid of the messenger sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said Go back to your people. You will not be given permission to perform your
alma mater Tip No sugar rhodiola one with his sword.
He said Remove your hand
or I take your hand. This was the nephew
speaking to his uncle like this,
the relationship of a man supersedes and goes over and above the relationship of blood.
Over he realized that they were not turning back. He went back to his people standing in front of all the kabara of the main people of the kurush.
He said I have been amongst the Persians, the Byzantines I've been to have Russia Never have I met a people who love the leader, like the followers of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
They will fight over the widow if he makes will do
they will fight over one another to be in his company.
Even though he disbelieved he realized that there was no defeating these people.
These people who had attachment to a loss of power to Allah, it was seen not because they had to tell them but they knew.
They knew these people had an attachment to a loss of panel data, which was much stronger than that what they had and their attachment to their idols
and hold a comma. Nick Rossignol helps one after the other. A mystery was sent to the Prophet alayhi wa sallam, but failing in turning the Muslims back
The profit center of Manhattan affirm, to deliver the message news came back that maybe it was man or the Allahu anhu maybe had been killed, the Prophet sallallahu it was send them in the harem, having nothing.
They said we will Avengers man
there are very few of us, but we will not allow this. And then this is what is known as a total one
where the Muslims they gave themselves they shook, put their hand in the hand of the messenger sallallahu wasallam they will go with you, we will go with you and we will sacrifice ourselves because this is unacceptable. Because this is the command of Allah subhana wa tada and allies which are praises these individuals
are the Allahu anhu meaning that Allah Allah I was pleased with the believers is Cuba, Iran aka the shutaura when they gave their pledge of allegiance underneath the tree
eventually, so halep nama, one of the main people of the Qureshi came here the Prophet it sort of knew that there was no need to fight now and that they were going to make a compromise. Immediately what was to be written? He called an alien avatar of the Aloha and the Prophet Edison said, we're going to write an agreement here Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim,
who is our human? And who is our Rahim
said the disbelieving Kurdish
the Prophet sallallahu. I have said to say Bismillah
from Rasool Allah, Who is Rasool Allah Who is the Messenger of Allah.
They had to agree from Mohammed Abdullah,
the arrogance of the Quran at this time against the Muslims, and they set an agreement. What was the agreement? November now? You go back to your people. You can come back next year. A treaty for 10 years no fighting, any Muslim escapes from Makkah has to be returned.
condition of the condition. The Muslims saw that this was too much compromise or model the Allahu anhu alexnet muslimeen. Are we all know Muslims? As far as I know this believers well we make no compromises unless the rasulillah you know the Messenger of Allah Rasool Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Huck, we know upon the truth, at least to whom Allah Allah Allah Allah, Allah upon misguidance
the Prophet sallallahu icims what this is the command of Allah Jalla wa ala
the Muslims they returned,
only to return the next year 3000 Muslims making more.
This was the wisdom and the benefit of following the commands of Allah, Allah Allah.
The 1400 Muslims did not make it in the six but in the year seven 3000 Muslims and in year eight for tomeka 10,000 Muslims came to Mecca to free it from shook to remove disbelief was seeing the defeat what seemed an over compromise was in fact
a blessing in disguise. And this is something in the benefit want to take in to finish the hood when shadow tada
sometimes we need to look beyond our own two feet in certain situations.
There are those people who will also panel that has given the ability to speak who have hikma and not everybody has to speak
and this has to be in line with what a lot of adequate data wants from us from the Quran. And following the Sunnah of Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam and we know the verses in
Medina, we gave you a great victory this time Oh Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
We ask Allah so panel to Allah to grow and to still feel success in this life in the hereafter.
