indeed or praise is do belongs to a loss upon

00:05:11--> 00:05:17

the Lord of the worlds, the provider sustainer. of all that exists.

00:05:18--> 00:05:21

I bear witness there is none worthy of worship except Allah alone

00:05:23--> 00:05:31

who has no partner. And I bear witness that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam is his final messenger.

00:05:33--> 00:05:38

It just seems a few moments ago. In fact, it is just a week

00:05:39--> 00:05:44

that I was standing here on the member delivering

00:05:45--> 00:05:46

the hotel.

00:05:48--> 00:05:49

And as one of the seller

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

said that we are as individuals time high

00:05:58--> 00:06:04

and that when a week or time passes, the habit was only that a part of you has gone as well.

00:06:05--> 00:06:14

So it's an opportunity for us to look at the week has passed. And for you to really truly question yourself, what did I do What have I done?

00:06:15--> 00:06:19

What have I done which is of any great work

00:06:20--> 00:06:22

but I have given to a last panel which is

00:06:24--> 00:06:26

no, I don't mean that in a negative way.

00:06:28--> 00:06:32

Because I want to mention, a very beautiful, very beautiful Huggies

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

and it is a hadith and could see

00:06:36--> 00:06:44

it is a sacred narration in which the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam narrates on behalf of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:06:46--> 00:06:49

And it is a very famous and well known Hadith and puts.

00:06:50--> 00:06:55

I want to go through it, although to really give it justice needs longer than

00:06:57--> 00:07:14

maybe a set of reminders. But nonetheless, I want to take some benefit from this particular ad which will allow us to leave here today and to think about the great blessings that Allah subhanaw taala has given every single one of us

00:07:15--> 00:07:20

that we have some understanding of what I am offering everyday to Allah subhanaw taala

00:07:21--> 00:07:23

and how that is a great blessing.

00:07:25--> 00:07:30

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, But Allah, Allah Allah said

00:07:33--> 00:07:36

in Allah, Amanda Lee forgot

00:07:39--> 00:07:46

that whoever shows enmity towards my Willie, my friend, one of the Friends of our last panel,

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

that I have declared war against him,

00:07:51--> 00:08:00

the only two places that you will be able to find where a lot of penalty either open the openly declares war against individuals.

00:08:01--> 00:08:04

The first one is in the book of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:08:07--> 00:08:09

And the second one is in this hadith and

00:08:10--> 00:08:14

the first one all those who involve themselves in the Riba

00:08:15--> 00:08:16

usually,

00:08:17--> 00:08:24

and the second one of those who openly have enmity, hatred towards the friends of Allah subhana wa.

00:08:26--> 00:08:30

So the question is, who are the only of Allah

00:08:31--> 00:08:36

Who are the chosen people, but our last panel gyla will defend, protect

00:08:37--> 00:08:40

and declare war against those who for good to face them.

00:08:42--> 00:08:49

Allah subhanaw taala clarifies them defines who they are in beautiful terms in very simple terms,

00:08:51--> 00:08:57

but also penalty alysus Allah in only a law healer hope finale him weather

00:08:59--> 00:09:15

unquestionably, undeniably the Allies the friends that only have a loss or penalty either they will have no concern or no fear concerning them, nor will they be worried in any way. So Who are they? I live in a mono

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

takuna.

00:09:18--> 00:09:23

Those who believed on used to have Taqwa of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:09:25--> 00:09:33

Two very simple things are two common things that we hear very often believe in a loss or penalty

00:09:34--> 00:09:36

and having taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala.

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

Over is truly mean to have Amen olivine men

00:09:42--> 00:09:45

those who believe how many times our last panel down addresses Yeah.

00:09:46--> 00:09:49

Men in the Quran. Oh, you have believed

00:09:51--> 00:09:59

how many times you've been going through the book of velocity penalty and found out of the journalistic well you know what the loss of penalty is commanding you with or prohibiting

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

From what is the reality of taqwa

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

many definitions about the reality of what toccoa actually is.

00:10:11--> 00:10:12

Abdullah hibbeler

00:10:16--> 00:10:22

is an example of a practical example. We thought of a nominee, he came to Roy have some sheep, a shepherd.

00:10:24--> 00:10:25

And he said to him, send me this sheep.

00:10:26--> 00:10:27

And you keep the theremin.

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

You keep the price.

00:10:31--> 00:10:33

Of course, Abdullah have normal rhodiola

00:10:34--> 00:10:38

when he was not trying to deceive or cheat, anybody was testing.

00:10:40--> 00:10:44

Sell me this sheet. And you keep you keep the price you keep the profit.

00:10:46--> 00:10:48

All you need to say is that it died.

00:10:50--> 00:10:53

Or that a wolf got hold of it? No one will know the better.

00:10:54--> 00:10:55

It's easy for you to say that.

00:10:57--> 00:10:58

Boy, what did he reply?

00:11:00--> 00:11:07

He said, I'm a very, I'm in a very severe situation. And I'm indeed in need of this money.

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

But where is

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

concerning?

00:11:14--> 00:11:15

This is an example of

00:11:16--> 00:11:18

an individual having quite a velocity panel.

00:11:20--> 00:11:32

Not just in front of people, where a person is not going to misbehave, or openly disobey a logical penalty either. And then he may be rebuked or told it tequila Viola don't do that.

00:11:33--> 00:11:37

But he's behaving where no other person will know except this individual.

00:11:40--> 00:12:11

But he reminded himself and knew that regardless of the people, Allah subhana wa tada will see what he is doing. And Allah subhanaw taala will know what he has done. What a normal and where is Allah concerns? If you want to describe or tell somebody? What is the taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala. Of course, you can give them a classical definition of what the taqwa of Allah subhanaw taala is. But sometimes when you're given a practical example,

00:12:12--> 00:12:14

the understanding really hits home.

00:12:15--> 00:12:17

It is to feel a loss of penalty.

00:12:18--> 00:12:26

Because you know, that is what Allah subhanaw taala expects from you, and you know the consequences of your actions.

00:12:27--> 00:12:30

This particular Hadith, this hadith and Pudsey

00:12:33--> 00:12:42

shows the great status of those who reach this particular level that they become the Olia of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:12:43--> 00:12:47

It is not the case that they have to be perfect because none of us are perfect.

00:12:50--> 00:13:00

She called Islam Rahim Allah to Allah He mentioned that there was a verse in the Quran, where last panel Dallas says that they were certainly birds that Allah Allah, Allah chooses.

00:13:02--> 00:13:10

For men whom valuable enough some of them they oppress themselves, women who mocked us and some of them who are in the middle class.

00:13:12--> 00:13:14

woman whom sadly come in hierarchy

00:13:15--> 00:13:37

and some of them are at the forefront in committing good deeds or pleasing Allah so penalty Allah By Allah, Allah, others permission. All of these people can be from the Olia of Allah subhanaw taala that they are of different levels. But nonetheless, they will have this great gift from Allah subhanaw taala that Allah Jalla wa is

00:13:40--> 00:13:45

but also penalty Allah is the helper, the protector of those who believe

00:13:46--> 00:13:52

those touch their hearts to Allah subhanho wa Taala the Hadith continues the Hadith.

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

And a week passed and what did we do?

00:13:58--> 00:14:05

You can say that I prayed my five daily prayers every single day in that time.

00:14:07--> 00:14:12

This is what Allah Jalla wa obligated upon me and I did that to the best of my ability.

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

And you should know as is mentioned in the Hadith woman de la Abitibi Shay in LA

00:14:23--> 00:14:36

to LA and there is no or my slave will not perform an act which he draws closer to me which is more beloved to me then that what he fulfills which I have ordained or obligated upon him or her.

00:14:39--> 00:14:41

So part of your life has gone

00:14:42--> 00:14:54

but at least you can say inshallah either that you offered that what Allah subhanaw taala obligated and placed upon your shoulders, and that these actions are the most beloved actions to Allah.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam he told us in the south

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

He's

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

the closest the servant will be to his Lord is when he is frustrated.

00:15:08--> 00:15:11

But you remember every single time when you make

00:15:13--> 00:15:23

the most honored part of your body, your face, you place it on the floor, whether it is in the carpet, in your home, the carpet, in the masjid,

00:15:24--> 00:15:28

in the street, or in the park, on dust.

00:15:29--> 00:15:35

Nonetheless, you recognize Allah, Allah, Allah is right over you. And you sit in between him and you submit to Him.

00:15:37--> 00:15:40

And that you ask Allah subhanaw taala whatever you wish.

00:15:41--> 00:15:54

And this is another gift that a lot of panatela gives to the surface. But as you praise Allah, so panel to Allah Subhana, Allah, Allah Subhana Allah, glory be to the Most High.

00:15:55--> 00:15:57

So as you are taking yourself down,

00:15:58--> 00:16:00

you are recognizing the Most High

00:16:02--> 00:16:08

that you can have a conversation and converse with rapala adenine, without any

00:16:09--> 00:16:14

without any need for intermediary without a need for you asking anybody.

00:16:15--> 00:16:25

There was no Tata Gemma needed, there is no translator that is needed, whatever your personal need is that you can ask Allah subhanaw taala that.

00:16:27--> 00:16:31

And this is the relationship that you would have with a loss of habitat.

00:16:32--> 00:16:34

And just yesterday, I was speaking with a brother.

00:16:36--> 00:16:40

And he said, this is the one of the beautiful things that I found in Islam

00:16:42--> 00:16:47

is that when you are alone, nobody is with unified if they were looking at you, maybe they will look at you in a strange way.

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

But you have a conversation with your Lord.

00:16:52--> 00:16:59

You recognize your situation that you are in the difficulties, the difficulties that you're facing, openly.

00:17:00--> 00:17:02

You're going through a difficult time.

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

You just open words, with an open heart in submission, and that you stand there with you wherever you are sitting down. It doesn't have to be in Sabah.

00:17:14--> 00:17:18

But you're conversing supplicating calling upon your Lord.

00:17:19--> 00:17:21

This is the situation that I am in.

00:17:22--> 00:17:30

And I am weak. And I am in need. And I am in need of your help. I'm in need of your guidance.

00:17:31--> 00:17:33

This is an SD slot, this is your solution.

00:17:35--> 00:17:40

This is you verbally verbalizing your submission to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:17:41--> 00:17:49

That you are keeping it in feeling that others are going to help you or that you're going to do it yourself first and foremost. And the fact

00:17:50--> 00:18:02

that you are in need of Allah subhanaw taala mama who will honey honey, but also cannot alcohol, honey, he is in need of nothing, the old praised and there's the one I'm the only one

00:18:03--> 00:18:03

that can help you.

00:18:06--> 00:18:10

So the most beloved action is to allow the penalty of the obligations.

00:18:11--> 00:18:25

Sometimes you're asked I needed to I need something please help me or advise me what I can do. So Allah azza wa jal will answer my first thing you need to respond to them is keep up with your obligations. First and foremost,

00:18:26--> 00:18:33

it may sound very simple, but it is extremely important. We don't want to take the focus away and we shouldn't take the focus away.

00:18:35--> 00:18:47

And just concentrating on the work, because those things that maybe we don't do so often. That is an element of me wanting to do that. More than the obligations of focus more than the obligation, the obligation to do every day.

00:18:50--> 00:19:02

You say to the person, advise them, stand up in the in your salon, concentrate in your salon, try to fix them what you want to understand what you're saying, Yeah, I know I do my obligations, but what else?

00:19:04--> 00:19:20

That the answer possibly shows, there is not a true understanding of the obligations themselves. But they are the most will have reductions to a loss. And through those your righteous actions, you will seek a loss of penalty assistance.

00:19:21--> 00:19:25

And yes, that you seek a loss of penalty others assistance through your good deeds.

00:19:27--> 00:19:31

Not that you are boasting that these are the days that I did a loss of help me,

00:19:32--> 00:19:36

but these are a means of you getting close to a loss of penalty.

00:19:38--> 00:19:44

This is a permissible means of you asking a loss of penalty either to help you through your righteous deeds.

00:19:47--> 00:19:52

Then the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that Allah Allah Allah, Allah says, Allah is Allah, Allah

00:19:56--> 00:20:00

that my slave will keep drawing close to me by performing

00:20:00--> 00:20:19

Then our so on top of those obligatory actions, you will add the network because you know you have shortcomings. So you add the sunon prayers with your obligation x, the two before the four before the too often, too often, too often there's not a chance you're going to miss any of those

00:20:20--> 00:20:36

because you know inshallah, they will help you and complete the obligations that you are offering. You know that the Salah is the first thing you're going to be asked about the Day of Judgment. So you want to ensure that you face a lesser penalty with the very best of your deeds. May Allah subhanaw taala make us from the

00:20:38--> 00:20:38

Apollo coding

00:20:58--> 00:21:02

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah.

00:21:05--> 00:21:11

praise belongs to Allah, the world's or may the peace and blessings of Allah, Allah Allah, be upon this find the messenger Muhammad Sallallahu Adios.

00:21:13--> 00:21:18

Bye by the birds and sisters, when we talk about belief in a loss of power,

00:21:19--> 00:21:22

you can approach the subject from a number of different ways perspectives.

00:21:25--> 00:21:33

But the perspective of two of us to remind ourselves of the importance of is a hopeful

00:21:35--> 00:21:37

fear and hope in a loss of

00:21:39--> 00:21:45

fear and hope in a lawsuit penalty, and what underlies all of that is the love of velocity penalty.

00:21:46--> 00:21:54

And this has a very important link to the Hadith that I was mentioned before. Because the Hadith continues, I didn't finish the Hadith,

00:21:55--> 00:21:57

that individual

00:21:58--> 00:22:05

who offers their obligations, the five daily prayers, upholding the kings or the ties of kinship,

00:22:06--> 00:22:18

mother, father, do what you can to serve them and help them all those other words you bought for me to know about and you educate yourself about and you chop that up with UNICEF in

00:22:20--> 00:22:21

South Africa, you know of

00:22:22--> 00:22:25

all those other things that maybe you don't have to do but you do.

00:22:26--> 00:22:42

You have the balance of hope, that Allah Allah, Allah will accept that from you. And also the fear that there may be a rejection, that Allah subhanaw taala may not accept that from you because of other sins. So you have a fair balance between these two.

00:22:44--> 00:22:46

But if the person becomes from those people

00:22:48--> 00:22:49

who office obligations,

00:22:51--> 00:22:51

office then

00:22:53--> 00:22:59

as Allah subhanaw taala says, that they will reach a stage that Allah Allah will love them.

00:23:01--> 00:23:03

And if Allah subhanaw taala loves you,

00:23:04--> 00:23:09

you are no need of the love of anything or anyone else.

00:23:11--> 00:23:20

Because of the Lord of the worlds who created you, sustains you, provides for you, guides protects you, then what else do you need?

00:23:21--> 00:23:24

The everyday you say, he cannot

00:23:25--> 00:23:30

study, you will only worship and you will know we seek a

00:23:36--> 00:23:47

guide us guide me guide us the Muslims Guide us to the straight path, you're constantly asking lots of penalty Allah to guide you and the Muslims to the straight path.

00:23:49--> 00:23:50

So, if Allah penalty either loves

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

what happens?

00:23:56--> 00:23:59

Allah subhanaw taala we will become the site that you see with

00:24:02--> 00:24:02

with

00:24:04--> 00:24:06

the ears that you hear with

00:24:07--> 00:24:09

the hand which you stretch out with

00:24:10--> 00:24:17

the feet from one place that you walk that last panel, it will help you in all of those things.

00:24:18--> 00:24:27

Because there are those people who do not have the protection of the I do not have the protection from what they hear, do not have the protection from where they walk, or where they go to.

00:24:29--> 00:24:39

Because at the end of the Hadeeth a legit analysis alysus with Eleni louthian. And if they asked me, I will indeed give to them.

00:24:40--> 00:24:45

This note at the end is Toki emphasis. Not that just

00:24:46--> 00:24:48

that I will give him I will indeed give to him or her

00:24:50--> 00:24:58

willingness there is any reason and that they seek my refuge to my protection. I will indeed give it to them.

00:25:00--> 00:25:15

It would be enough that Allah subhanaw taala tells us also your supplication. And I will, if you ask me for protection, I will give it to you. But the fact allostery penalty Island emphasizes this point, which is found in the Quran in so many places

00:25:16--> 00:25:18

we'll call Rooney.

00:25:20--> 00:25:36

And your Lord says, Call upon me. And I will answer you will either allocate the money in the theory and if say, Mohammed says, tell them? If they ask me, tell them I am close.

00:25:37--> 00:25:40

I will answer the application of the one who is asking me

00:25:42--> 00:25:54

this theme that we find in the Quran, this theme that we find in the Sunnah, asked Allah, call upon Allah, turn to Allah subhanho wa Taala is something that is staring us right in the face,

00:25:55--> 00:25:58

meaning that it is of the utmost importance.

00:25:59--> 00:26:02

You alone, we worship, nobody else we don't turn to anybody else.

00:26:04--> 00:26:09

And you alone, we seek aid, we seek help. Before you do anything, before you ask anyone that you ask.

00:26:12--> 00:26:14

Sometimes you're placed in a position,

00:26:15--> 00:26:18

or you're placed in a situation that you didn't ask for, and you would never ask for.

00:26:21--> 00:26:32

You don't ask for calamity, or loss of wealth, health, whatever the case may be. But the last two panels, Allah places you in that difficulty, you've never asked yourself to be placed in difficulty, and we don't ask.

00:26:34--> 00:26:50

But also penalty is more merciful to you than you can be to your own self. And this is an example of how that when a loss or penalty are placed is certain servants in a difficulty. When there's a loss of wealth, a beloved one loss of health, whatever the case may be, that tried that just it

00:26:51--> 00:26:58

at that time, they realize that Bashar no person, no money, no Toby, no doctor,

00:27:00--> 00:27:01

nothing can help.

00:27:03--> 00:27:04

Nothing or no one can help him.

00:27:06--> 00:27:09

At that time, that person that individual realizes

00:27:11--> 00:27:12

it is only Allah Who can help me No.

00:27:15--> 00:27:16

It is only now that Allah

00:27:18--> 00:27:30

I recognize me but the only Allah can help the world becomes an all of its beauties, and all of its charms and suddenly becomes worthless, suddenly becomes not worth very much.

00:27:32--> 00:27:40

And only those servants who are put in this position will truly understand the worth of a situation that I'm describing to you.

00:27:42--> 00:28:00

Maybe the situation that I'm describing to you, you've heard before, but you don't feel it in your heart. But there are certain sermons to hear that and say, You know what, there were times, or there is a time now, nothing can help and help. Only a law can help. And the sweetness the pureness,

00:28:01--> 00:28:09

nothing can really truly describe the relationship you have with a loss or penalty either. That moment

00:28:11--> 00:28:17

that you truly turned to a loss of minority either, knowing that he alone is the one who can help you.

00:28:18--> 00:28:21

And if it wasn't for our last panel to Allah trying you,

00:28:22--> 00:28:31

testing you, this would have never happened, he would have never felt like this. And this feeling you realize, this is what I've been looking for for years.

00:28:32--> 00:28:42

And only because I'm being tested, I'm being tried to handle that I am finding myself in this position, this attachment to Allah subhanaw taala

00:28:44--> 00:28:50

the person who's going through a difficulty speaks to another person because sometimes a person will say to you, glad tidings to you.

00:28:51--> 00:28:59

Subhana Allah, your chosen server, your chosen person, because their reaction you can see that turned into a last panel.

00:29:00--> 00:29:18

But the question then then maybe wrote, asked, arises, how will you react? And how will you behave if you are tested? When you turn to Allah subhana wa tada or when you turn away, when you rely on the people, will you rather rely on yourself? Will you rely on your money? Or will you turn to Allah subhanaw taala.

00:29:21--> 00:29:47

When you are tested, and you turn back to Allah subhanaw taala you will say and you will recognize the who will mukou minute Tila, this was the objective and this was the point of the test. This was for me to turn back to a muscle panel. And this is all that Allah Allah Allah wants from us. Everything is facilitated, that Eliza has mercy upon you and you don't even know it helps you and you don't even know it.

00:29:48--> 00:29:51

your health, your wealth, your your security, all of this is from when?

00:29:52--> 00:29:54

from Allah subhanaw taala.

00:29:55--> 00:29:57

May Allah subhanaw taala allow us to recognize the name of Allah.

00:29:59--> 00:30:00

Allah subhanaw taala

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

protect us from having a hothouse. May Allah Subhana Allah guide us to the St. Paul mailscanner to Allah join the ranks of the oma Muhammad Sallallahu

00:30:08--> 00:30:10

May Allah subhanaw taala protect the Muslims

00:30:12--> 00:30:16

to protect the Muslims in the Yemen and Iraq milis pantalla protect the Muslims in Palestine

00:30:18--> 00:30:24

to protect all the Muslims around the world. fitten is going into Somalia and all around the world. A lot of money for it.
