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

contentment that you receive the two joys promised by the prophets Allah Allah Allah you are settling. One joy for the moment you break your fast and of course our great joy in meeting Allah Subhana Allah to Allah having completed our fast each and every year, each and every day seeking this pleasure Subhana Allah to Allah, may Allah Subhana Allah Allah reward you for the struggle of fasting, the patience that it involves, and may Allah subhanho wa Taala make our fasting in our heart, in our tongue, and in our body Allahumma and

00:00:41--> 00:01:37

and Hamdu lillahi kunda Shaqiri in WA Salatu was Salam ala say he did more study. Valley cupola he ut he may your share, as such are the bounties of Allah Subhana Allah Allah, He gave us to whom He wills. One of the themes that we find in the Quran is that Allah subhana wa Tada is always generous with his creation, even when times are difficult, but there is mercy and subtleties in the Mercy of Allah subhana wa Tada. And in the Mercy of Allah azza wa jal, we at times, are asked by Allah to rejoice and to find comfort in it. And it's the little mercies that you and I seek from ALLAH SubhanA wa to Allah, that are meant to reinvigorate, re establish and reconnect our intentions with

00:01:37--> 00:01:48

Allah azza wa jal. The topic that was allocated Alhamdulillah for today is a very vague description, and the mountain of pride.

00:01:50--> 00:02:47

All of us have mountains in our life. Before we begin speaking about who is the Prophet, what is the story of a Muslim? I want you to kind of encapsulate that all of us have Madej you know, Allah, there's a surah as my origin the Quran Illa Allah, He didn't manage to Allah is the steepest ascent. Now, I want you to kind of think of the Mount Everest. And if I was to say to you now an untrained, unqualified, maybe not as healthy and physically fit individual. Let's go we're going up the mountain. We're ascending Everest. Where's my gear? Do I get any training? Are we taking off? Is there a guide with us? Huh? How are we going to go up and make it back down or we're going to

00:02:47--> 00:02:48

survive

00:02:50--> 00:02:53

the climb is difficult.

00:02:54--> 00:02:58

But the return is even more difficult.

00:02:59--> 00:03:04

And Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna uses this imagery number and often

00:03:05--> 00:03:11

Allah Subhana Allah Allah tells us in Surah Al Hajj, the one who disbelieves in Allah,

00:03:12--> 00:03:34

that sod the Roho their chest is expanding. Because of the ascent, it's almost as if they are brought up into the heavens, and their chest becomes so tight from the fear of what it is they're going to face with Allah. And then it is as if they are dropped down to earth, unworthy of the station of the heavens.

00:03:35--> 00:03:43

Each and every one of us we have a mountain to climb, a journey to make a hardship to overcome.

00:03:44--> 00:04:38

Something that we see from ALLAH SubhanA wa to Allah that maybe others don't see. Something that we are asking of Allah to remove from us that maybe others are inviting. All of those are things that Allah Subhana Allah challenges each and every one of us with and Allah Subhana Allah says, about I can live via the hill Malik all blessings glory, all completeness of thankfulness. And, and blessedness is for he alone, Allah doesn't even need to name himself. Allah doesn't need to say about our kala Devourer can levy be at the mercy to who he is, who has all of the Dominion or control and all of the power will actually show you in a deal. And he has put the raw power and

00:04:38--> 00:04:59

authority and control over all things and let the Hulk and meltdown hire that we have doable, it is Allah Subhana Allah to Allah Who created like death and from a life and for it life so that you may be tested and you can say no matter which of you will do the best with the life and

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

They were given. I want you to understand this before we begin the topic.

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

I am not accountable for the life of another lady who can live Allahu nevsun He lives at no one is going to be burdened with that which is beyond them. I am not going to be judged on account of my neighbor's conduct

00:05:24--> 00:05:34

layer to recommend one let the data there is no harm that arrives to you on the Day of Judgment, when those you call to truth have remained far from it.

00:05:35--> 00:05:43

When I look at you look better. Your only duty is to convey yeah Mohamed I sell the owner of Muhammad.

00:05:46--> 00:06:01

One of the greatest burdens you and I carry in life and one of the greatest tests we have in life that Allah refers to in the Quran as a fitna in them in our logical, surely from your progeny, your children,

00:06:02--> 00:06:43

from your wealth from your spouse, all the three words were used in different verses is our do is an enemy to you and the enemy where my children are an enemy. How could that be? You know, I, I love my children, you know, a mother's connection to a child a father's connection weaker than them. But a mother's connection to a child is almost so absolute to all normalized behavior is so absolute that they're the ones who Allah favors if not more, and even in the subtleties of the Quran. There are two words that Allah uses a number of

00:06:44--> 00:07:19

other way and waggy they out comes from the word father, Baba at the right at belly. When Allah speaks about inheritance and financial dealings. Allah subhanaw taala prefer puts the father first because the father is going to inherit and avoid, right? But when Allah speaks about beauty, reality, right righteousness to your parents, he uses waggy that the one who gave birth to you as the pre text of who your rightness should be most intentional with

00:07:21--> 00:07:24

Allah subhanho wa Taala has made this an unending connection

00:07:25--> 00:08:06

between a mother and even father with their children, that is meant to sustain and of the greatest tests in life for a father and mother is that their child Subhan Allah does not conform to that which is a truth in a reality of Islam. And Allah subhanho wa Taala has given this test over and over to the prophets and messengers before us in one of the most moving dua of the Quran sections of the Quran in surah. Tabata that you would have heard on the first night of the week, is where Yahoo

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

asks his children as he was asked by his father as his father's father asked him, Matt, would you want me back? What will you worship my sons after my departure after my demands? I do not go to Isla Hakka where

00:08:26--> 00:09:25

we will worship the God of your father, your God, the God of your forefathers. Yeah. Yeah. Our Father. There's always bitterness, fear and eggs in all believing communities, that once progeny once children do not can remain committed upon a place of love for Allah subhanho wa taala. Ibrahim was so concerned with this, that Ibrahim alayhis salam is most essential and eternal Dora that you and I continue to be rockville Philly well, he Well, he they call me Naomi, who will ASAP but right before it before he speaks of his Alzira Ibrahim alayhis salam asks Allah in the DRI una Robbie Johnny multimo sada women don't leave yet. Oh Allah make me regularly by prayer. And for my project

00:09:25--> 00:09:42

my children my grandchildren great grandchildren are on better what's up Ben? Oh Allah all other drive is unheard. Enter this dot for me Allah He makes to drive for that drive. Probably Janie McLean Masada were made into reality or better with a thought value.

00:09:44--> 00:09:59

This is a natural instinct. As much as you and I love our children, we want the best for them in life. Those of us whose hearts are connected and awake with Allah, the thing that we'd love the most for them is Islam and the thing that we fear

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

Most for them is its loss.

00:10:03--> 00:10:06

Then comes the mountain of pride.

00:10:09--> 00:10:12

No OLOFI, Salah, and his son,

00:10:13--> 00:10:27

that mountain that separates between righteousness and morality, that pride that causes a son to remain distant from an honored father.

00:10:29--> 00:11:07

That mountain that seems to be a place of protection, when in fact, it is a place of folly and hardship and sinfulness that mountain where one assumes they can be out of the reach of ALLAH SubhanA wa Eilis destiny and cada, that mountain that each and every one of us has, in a different shape, and in a different form, is one of the things that you and I must internalize these verses of the Quran and find a path of knowledge from it, to protect ourselves, our families and our children.

00:11:08--> 00:11:57

Allah subhana wa to Allah says, in the middle of Surah, two, three, yeah, you have to be that Oh, you who believe who emphasize legal now, save yourself first, when legal, and all of the concentric family circles you have what a heavy Camaro and all of your family members, those who are nearer and further and further and further out west niku. Now ah, well who do and NASA Well, HR, because save them from the hell player because it's Kindle and it's blazing will pee upon mankind, and stones and rocks. May Allah Subhana Allah protect us protect our families and our children alone.

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

I wish to first address this topic in three separate stages. The first stage in sha Allah in the few minutes that we have, is we're going to speak about new and the rejection of his people and his family members to his call of truth.

00:12:19--> 00:12:37

Number two, that the power of Allah is absolute. And number three, that Allah subhana went to Allah is the One who turns hearts. And our job is simply to recommend and guide to the truth.

00:12:39--> 00:13:24

New Alayhis Salam is one of the earliest prophets of Allah. And some have made this statement and claimed that he is the first messenger of Allah. That after AD Abadi has set up the first messenger, the first one to be given a mandate of Sharia mandate of law. With new Anakin setup. And new halaya Salam was sent to a people who were blessed by Allah initially, and Hamdulillah, that they had lush gardens, they had families and children in plenty, they had been given the heavens opened with its Baraka upon the the land erupted.

00:13:26--> 00:14:21

Its vegetation and agriculture, their livestock were maintained, that they had a plentiful life, but such as the condition of Allah subhanaw taala, dealing with humanity, when typical idea we don't have a nurse, such our days we test mankind with it, in turn, that there will be your own letter way on Elena, and they that is for you. And they that seems to be against you, and they have ascension and the day of dissent. And they have honor and a day of humility and humbleness. And they were you are provided and the day where you have from the borrower can remove a day of health and a day of illness, a season of wealth and excess and season of the of deprivation, that the story of life was

00:14:21--> 00:14:51

never one of completeness in all of the things that we aspire to. And the concept of risk for you and I as a Muslim risk is not simply in materials in that which is a metric something that you could say I have this amount of it. Risk at times is in the immeasurable of greater importance. There is great it is in your contentment apart, I leave debutante on the Allahu Anhu on the bar.

00:14:52--> 00:14:59

He used to say this wonderful wonderful couplets and lines of poetry and neffs attention and the cool FLP

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

Well FelPro havenly Belinda nuclear, that your inner inner soul is angst at the thought of being one who is deprived and in poverty. But rather wealth is sometimes better to be taken away than having in excess that leads you away from the path of truth that you entered into Julio, where he did not foresee who will kafele Then if you have the enrichment in your heart in your soul, then this is all that you truly will need and be surprised by that in edit for Jenny O'Malley Jr, Leia Korea, because if your soul cannot enjoy contentment and be able to say this is enough, insufficient, then the wealth of the world in its entirety will not suffice you heal or there it is to have an accepted

00:15:54--> 00:16:08

contentment with your circumstance helps me maintain it in life Techwood Malika you will rule over all things like a king. One go to Isla maganda Dunia bhi hurrah having

00:16:09--> 00:16:27

me will happily and look to the one who gathered the splendor and the riches of the world that they departed with anything other than cotton sheets that enshrouded them. May Allah subhanho wa Taala greatest as the Prophet said, and Marina Xena, that's

00:16:28--> 00:17:23

it wealthiness and self sufficiency is what is in your soul it's how you consider your life rules is more important in the in determines in the things that are not metric rules is in the contentment of heart in the friends that you can confide in and have in support. The great risk of the Prophet I sell about the likes of Abu Bakr Saudi Arabia Allah Allahu Akbar, the great risk of our enemies Allah love it we're setting limits Khadija and I shall Allah and the great risk of I want to be yours I sell me that's grandchildren and asset what we say the great risk of the profit in this dunya is that he had a heart that had no malice towards others, even those who sought to harm him

00:17:23--> 00:17:47

and wrong him. So the law he was selling in a cafe neck and Mustangs in Allah says I will be the one who will suffice you against those who ridicule you, because the prophets hearts alive, was incapable of having such callousness that he could not see or else see and see those same people in a better condition if they came to a moment of truth and love for Allah.

00:17:49--> 00:17:53

So Allah said, I will be the one to deal with them. We appointments Allah it per se.

00:17:54--> 00:18:45

No Holly, his Salah, the first of messengers, was given a mandate by Allah. This mandate necessitated that his people would have to give up some of the vices that they have begun to practice. The first and foremost was that they begin to establish connections of worship, love and fear for other than Allah. Allah, the prophets I send them tells us in the authentic hadith of Malik Malik Buhari, that it took almost more than 10 generations from people to stray from the truth of towhee into beginning to worship and attempt to worship idols and things that are reprehensible in that time. How did it begin? What that was where I weigh a booth away? Oh, and I saw these were

00:18:45--> 00:19:36

names of righteous people. They were celebrated ancestors and elders. And it's such an important archaeological and anthropological per logical subtlety in the Quran. The very essential stories of aboriginal cultures of Native Indian cultures that describe the Great Spirit, the great the God of all gods, all of them have an essence of Tawheed. But where you see that Shem could begin to enter is they begin speaking about their ancestors, there's a reverence for their ancestors, the people who were here before us, there is a connection to them. That goes just beyond that these were nice people or they had, you know, they sacrifice for us or they move from one place to another. It comes

00:19:36--> 00:19:59

to a place where you see that there was a moment where the shaytaan entered into this conversation and turn the key that led towards you. The prophet describes this hadith in Bukhari, by saying that the righteous amongst their community when they would pass away that people would commemorate them by retaining some of their clothing or some of their cushy

00:20:00--> 00:20:17

buttons or things that symbolize them. And there was no negative effect of the first generation or second people say, you know, your grandfather, your great grandfather, your great great grandfather. This is what he used to wear. This is where he used to say, this is is the staff that he used to hold this with.

00:20:19--> 00:20:41

Templates, the crown that he used to wear, and it would be honored in that way. But by the time it came to the 10th generation, those artifacts became relics, that if you need something, go speak to your grandfather, great, great, great, great, great grandfather. You can ask him he's one who was so legendary, he was now be made into a mythological figure.

00:20:42--> 00:20:59

And people now began to seek to take baraka to seek to take blessing to seek to protect themselves from harm by calling out to these very same names. Nuala salaam Salam Allah Subhana Allah sentences to bring people back to

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

that there is no power no authority, no place to turn but Allah Now hola what who would it be that that there is nothing that you depend on and must reject all others before you can come to the truth of a loss? Yeah, EDA. You know what, that when they asked him what is it that you've come with and your medulla Bala committee last year, that your worship your commitment, the word worship here the context of it commanded with duty, it is a completion of love, and humility, before an object to replace or a thing seeking increase or protection from decrease.

00:21:43--> 00:21:47

This is what they wanted from their idols. If you were to ask them, like

00:21:48--> 00:21:59

a seven year old, a lot, he asked a boo created the heavens and the earth, they would say it is a loss of habitat. Sometimes within our societies of Muslims, we have the same problem.

00:22:01--> 00:22:42

You know, there's a huge, huge picture of a loved great grandfather or grandfather for a community for a family. And it's almost as if people say, you know, he's looking down upon us now, right you, you can kind of see that in some other cultures hamdulillah as Muslims, we seek to be protected from this, but that veneration that it almost becomes an iconic deification. It's also what happened to a Saudi setup and others. There's that progress towards that. And that's why Muslims were very careful with things like pictures, that there were sculptures at the time of the prophets. I said, they were master artists at the time of the prophets of Allah. He was certain there were people who could

00:22:42--> 00:23:06

capture his image for us, and do it with incredible precision. But that was never done. It wasn't done not because nobody loved the prototype. Didn't want to remember him. But because the memory that is meant to last is meant to be what he came with, not the physicality of his person. Peace and blessings be upon him solo Allahu alayhi wa sallam

00:23:07--> 00:23:11

new causes people to go heat and they reject

00:23:12--> 00:23:29

Allah Subhana Allah says for 950 years, and it's important to contextualize what this means that new Alayhis Salam generation after next, it's not everybody in this society lived for so long. And it's not necessarily that this is

00:23:30--> 00:23:33

a condition where Allah subhana wa Taala

00:23:34--> 00:24:23

has made newer, anything other than a miracle for his people. He is out living generations. And each and every consecutive generation their lifespan was short, he would call them to toe heat, but they would go further away from the truth, they would go further away from the truth, they go further away from the truth. And Allah subhanho wa Taala invites Nora alayhis salam to continue calling in me that I will talk and play alone when he says overbore day and night night and day I'm calling them to you will imagine I can't find any of them. None of them receptive, except a few of the family members in my household. Those who are missing is his wife. And what a incredible statement

00:24:23--> 00:24:59

and sort of the hurry. Well thought of Allah who method and Linda vena cava. Allah gives an example of disbelief. A moron uttered the wife of no one brought utter loot and the wife of Lord to HUD, Allah, Allah is going to say I'm going to tell you about the disbelievers. And then he names prophets of Allah, their family. It's an incredible statement in the next area, well, not Allah Who? Medina avonmore And Allah gives an example to those who believe in the wife of Pharaoh the greatest tyrant of historical figures

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

and such Allah draws for us this important principle that truth is not recognized through connection and relationship. Truth is not assumed through blood line and through Berridge truth and the acceptance of it is not guaranteed for any of us, for ourselves, our homes and our families. And Allah subhanho wa Taala wants you to know from very early on in the Quran, that you must approach a lot, you must remain vigilant ponto II, you must be reminded of your family, as Ibrahim was of the importance of la ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasool Allah and consistency and constancy in prayer. Can you imagine Ibrahim alayhis salam asks Allah where Jacoby webedi and da Buddha asthma protect me.

00:25:55--> 00:26:22

And my children from worshipping idols, Ibrahim, that's one of the people I set up. How could it be? The one who smashed the idols fears the fear that he would, he could, at any time, lose some connection with Allah that leads are further away from truth because that's the reality. There are things in our life that we adored, that we love, there are tests that can come that can shake faith.

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

I want to share something personal with you.

00:26:28--> 00:26:48

Last night, after salatu taraweeh I visited the house of Musa Seddon one of the dear family friends in our community here in Perth, prominent Turkish family mashallah his son 22 years old, was working first day of Ramadan.

00:26:49--> 00:26:51

He was driving

00:26:52--> 00:26:59

a rescue vehicle, a truck that he was helping to elderly women 70 years old.

00:27:02--> 00:27:06

You know, helping them with their car from one place to another and control Lahoma

00:27:08--> 00:27:16

they were in a collegiate head on and he instantaneously passed away two hours before breaking fast on the first day on the one

00:27:18--> 00:27:20

hand a lot an incredible test.

00:27:22--> 00:27:26

Some of the things that you and I feel the bombs.

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

In Nigeria you are in a arogya rune is the loss of a son and daughter

00:27:33--> 00:27:39

handlebar, you know, it's unbelievable what pain that would bring.

00:27:40--> 00:27:47

But of greater loss is that you have a zombie who walks this world disconnected from a bot

00:27:48--> 00:27:54

is that you have a son or a daughter whose Eman is not existent.

00:27:55--> 00:28:12

Whose physical state whose breath in and out is present whose consumption is present who's physically next to you. But they are so far away from Allah from you.

00:28:14--> 00:28:23

And Subhan Allah as I was leaving his home after making a small talk for the hundreds who were gathered, each and every night gathered there in their home.

00:28:25--> 00:28:27

I give a short talk to the young man as well.

00:28:29--> 00:28:33

He said he said he put his hand on my knee he said Zach Aloka here

00:28:35--> 00:28:39

Alhamdulillah he died with EMAT labwork.

00:28:49--> 00:28:52

Hamdulillah he died with email

00:28:59--> 00:29:00

no Holly has said that

00:29:05--> 00:29:06

was tested.

00:29:08--> 00:29:11

With a son whose pride was bigger than the mountains

00:29:16--> 00:29:21

knew I was told to warn this people that if they don't maintain the truth

00:29:24--> 00:29:32

that the condition of their life that they pride themselves on their wealth and the rain the vegetation will depart

00:29:33--> 00:29:35

and it is Allah who's in control.

00:29:37--> 00:29:41

So they rejected so Allah began to remove their Baraka.

00:29:42--> 00:29:44

The heavens dried up.

00:29:48--> 00:29:49

The heavens dried up

00:29:51--> 00:29:52

and the earth began

00:29:53--> 00:29:54

to not fruit.

00:29:55--> 00:29:59

The Earth began to not share its Baraka as it was there

00:30:00--> 00:30:02

Start began to, to to die.

00:30:06--> 00:30:08

And most of Hannah who went to Allah says

00:30:10--> 00:30:11

that this is a test

00:30:13--> 00:31:03

that if they were to come to the truth, I will open it for them holiness stelle approval of data. Allah said Say to them yeah no, make Estelle fall two o'clock. ask Allah to forgive you. Your silly Santa alaykum Ventura he will return the heavens again with a drain and publica Well, you did come be a word in Weber neither way agile lacunae, jet nothing way agile document how he will help you with your vegetation and your prosperity and your children. Everything will be provided for you and will give you the strength that you so seek from Allah subhanho wa Taala Malik, Malik. What's wrong with you? Let's have journalists that the worker that you don't seek to find your strength and your

00:31:03--> 00:31:05

honor with Allah subhanho wa taala.

00:31:08--> 00:31:18

After years of drought, Nora has ordered to build a ship in what is done with desert. No, briefers. No See, people begin to ridicule them.

00:31:19--> 00:31:28

His family those who disbelieve are ashamed of his wife back now visit his son is distinct from him.

00:31:30--> 00:31:36

And no one maintains the course Leila went ahead or night and day I will invite you to the truth.

00:31:38--> 00:31:42

Until finally new makes that you are that we know with the

00:31:43--> 00:32:21

O Allah breathing down the righteous punishment upon these people. Allah subhana wa Tada betekenis Emma, we met him I opened the heavens and it hammered them down with rate with a gentleman Oh, the earth erupted with its aquifers and its water and the land began to flood. And as tsunami entered upon them, and everybody runs to the ship who has faith in Allah subhana wa Tada. And it's at this moment that the son sees that everything the father said was true.

00:32:22--> 00:32:28

So no, Akira is the moment of pride that leads to the bounty.

00:32:29--> 00:33:21

Allah says and sort of who winner that no holy cow, even after all of this noise, heart as a father, my son in combat, come to the ship. When I tackled mal Catherine, do not be like those who remain unbelievers. Come on the ship means enter into your belief in La Ilaha la because I will never change what is wrong to be what is right just because your mindset, I will not give you access just because you have a blood connection to me, or that I raised you or that you may make a parental claim on me. This isn't my ship. This ship is the ship of salvation. It is a representation of gender and hellfire. It is a representation of truth and falsehood. Yep, and then y'all can make the

00:33:21--> 00:33:24

choice to ride with Eman with us.

00:33:25--> 00:33:28

coalescer lb illegible I don't need you.

00:33:29--> 00:33:40

I don't need you. I don't need your ship. I don't need your God. I don't need your faith. I'm going to climb that mountain. I can see myself the audacity

00:33:42--> 00:33:51

of a corrupt soul. I am my own god, I am the one who makes decisions. I am the one who decides I

00:33:52--> 00:33:53

will be the one

00:33:54--> 00:33:59

who can make my own path I am free I choose.

00:34:03--> 00:34:07

Allah subhanho wa Taala corrects that miss understanding and this assumption.

00:34:09--> 00:34:13

There is no i It is only Allah subhana wa ATOD

00:34:15--> 00:34:17

and as he begins to head up the mountain

00:34:19--> 00:34:51

new continues with his hand outstretched come back come to the truth come to faith. And his son begins to climb in Sunset his father says Lau super Leo no protection is there today in Emory law from the order of Allah enameled Russian except the one who has been given Rashmi the Eman faith, who had a big enough woman for kind of coffee and the waves crashed and he saw his son drown before he

00:34:56--> 00:34:59

may Allah subhana wa to Allah protect us from seeing any

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

Have our children to any of our loved ones any of our

00:35:04--> 00:35:12

dear and beloved to our hearts in any condition other than to heat and in any condition other than happiness and safety Allah.

00:35:13--> 00:35:28

May Allah subhana wa Tada allow all of us to adjust to the truth, and that we are guides of their hearts and their behavior that Allah Subhana Allah saves us from the fitna of knew that he was tested with Allah.

00:35:29--> 00:35:39

God may Allah also has learned from the laws given to us through new ways test three important laws I want you to maintain with yourself and your family.

00:35:40--> 00:35:42

First, my dear brother, my dear sister,

00:35:43--> 00:36:25

is know that he Daya is only in the hands of Allah, and that he died of a shot that he died of us inviting people to the truth is not necessarily going to be the hidayah that enters into the heart. You and I are commanded to continue day in day out even to the last moment even to the moment where the waves are crashing, to have our hand outstretched, our commitment to invite into the truth, our desire to bring them back. Our door is open for them on the condition of their being right with Allah. But we are a conditional people in our households. There is no

00:36:26--> 00:36:29

legitimizing what is illegitimate.

00:36:30--> 00:36:36

There is no turning from truth to that which is turning falsehood into that which is truth.

00:36:38--> 00:36:39

Finally, insha Allah

00:36:41--> 00:36:54

I wish to move on to the second section in that is we learned that the power of Allah is absolute, that Allah subhanho wa Taala the one who is

00:36:56--> 00:37:12

unquestioned of his decisions, in this light reading the next Allah says Now you said what if I said would Allah is not question but they will be the ones who are held accountable in question by him Subhana wa Jai,

00:37:14--> 00:37:34

that we have to understand that there will be a times tests in life that require for you and I to have to work through the problem, seeking a solution. But recognizing in our heart that perhaps the solution we seek is not the resolution Allah will give

00:37:35--> 00:37:41

no Alayhis Salam is not a negligent father, no Alayhis Salam did not

00:37:42--> 00:38:00

fail in educating his wife and son of the truth, knew Alayhis Salam is not one who had or could have changed his parental techniques, nor Alayhis Salam is not one who mistreated his son. And for this reason that toxic relationship manifests in this way.

00:38:02--> 00:38:27

Sometimes there are bad things that will occur even to good people. And the power of Allah is absolute. You and I must be reconciled in our heart, that there will be at times tests that are bitter, and it's not because we deserve it. At they are not a punishment from Allah. Allah is not punishing new way.

00:38:28--> 00:39:07

By turning his son's faith away from the truth, Allah is not punishing newer, by causing his family not to adhere to the truth. And sometimes we have this callous disregard in our communities where somebody is experiencing a trauma and a difficulty in their household. And there's these whispers or this this stigmatization that is made, or you know, if they paid more attention when they were younger, things would have turned out different. Perhaps, you know, this child didn't get enough love at home, you know, these kind of sinful whispers sinful gossip.

00:39:08--> 00:39:12

That is not entirely ever necessarily true.

00:39:13--> 00:39:46

There are moments of it that are true, there are toxic relationships. Yes, but not all bad outcomes were because of that beginnings. Sometimes people made bad decisions for themselves, irrespective of the love they were given with their families. And Allah wants you as a believer to know that perhaps in your life, you may have this test. Perhaps in your life he will see it as the prophet cites Allah Allah he will say, the Prophet SAW uncle's double,

00:39:47--> 00:39:57

you know, Abu Lahab, the village of the Quran, cursed and condemned in the Quran, even in our citation to this day and uncle to the prophets, I say

00:39:59--> 00:40:00

the uncle will

00:40:00--> 00:40:02

On the father of Annie Kabataan,

00:40:03--> 00:40:35

the father of you know, the great the brother of Hamza, the brother of, of job, these people did not come to faith, even though the one calling the one living with the one embedded with them is their home. So in all current circumstance, I want you to remember the word Allahu Akbar. It's the first thing you're going to say in the, in the ears of your newborn.

00:40:37--> 00:40:53

That the first word that we heard entering into this world, is that Allah put this child into my arms, and I turned them so in their right ear, I begin to softly say Allah, Akbar, Allah Akbar, Allah, Akbar, Allah UK.

00:40:54--> 00:41:05

The last thing you and I want to hear is that the man standing at our janazah and say, Allah, Akbar. That's why a lot of generosity is full of technique.

00:41:07--> 00:41:19

Because the sum of your life is the other than that is made for you that you hope to enter the rest of your life. And that can be or that is made for you as you enter into your grades.

00:41:20--> 00:42:12

But even in hearing that, Allah, Allah, Allah, I wanted to reverberate to your hearts a law is greater than the trauma you find yourself in. Allah is greater than the difficulty you are in Allah is greater than the challenge that is found in your household. Allah is greater than the one who is straying from the truth. Allah is greater than the love you have for a child or a member of your household who has left the path. Allah is more important to you that Allahu Akbar must permeate in your heart and your mind as you move forward through the challenges of life. And each and every time you hear that each and every time you raise your hand, in tech up from each time you say, Allah,

00:42:13--> 00:42:19

Akbar, as you said, before Allah, put all of this on your shoulder and let you fall into Heroku and let it fall off.

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

As you put your head into the ground, let it soak away from you in your dua to Allah, Allah, who

00:42:29--> 00:42:33

what other condition could know have that desire Allah Who?

00:42:36--> 00:42:42

By Allah subhana wa Tada lead us in our homes to that which is righteous and that which is blessed Allah.

00:42:44--> 00:42:45

Finally,

00:42:46--> 00:42:56

no, asks a lot. One of the moving sections of solitude is that after the ship

00:42:57--> 00:42:59

has found its stability,

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

and after they have been sailing for a number of days, knew is pain in his heart relates a lot.

00:43:09--> 00:43:14

And not because we assume the power of Allah is complete.

00:43:15--> 00:43:29

Not because everything in our heart reassures us of the outcome. That doesn't mean we cannot converse with a lot and ask for questions of our Imams on account of some of the conditions that we have met.

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

Whenever there

00:43:32--> 00:43:35

are a new summit that calls out to Allah.

00:43:37--> 00:43:42

Oh Allah, you promised that you would save me and my family, actually, my family

00:43:44--> 00:43:51

but you drowned you cause you let my son not come to faith. Oh Allah. My son drowned before me.

00:43:54--> 00:44:06

He says, Yeah, Allah, my son, he has not come to faith he drowned in front of me, oh Allah. How am I going to continue in life?

00:44:07--> 00:44:13

Allah subhanho wa Taala says that Noah asks Allah in that home in equity.

00:44:14--> 00:44:40

He is from my family, you promised to save my family or lions from my bloodline? And Allah says in there who lays me in the hammock, who Sire, rather, he is not from your family, he is chosen. He has chosen the Act and the sinful deviance that has made him more family to sin than he is to you.

00:44:41--> 00:44:45

And I want you to kind of hear the context of that and understand

00:44:46--> 00:44:59

that there must there comes a point in our life, where at times we must move through the pain of the loss of a loved one seen of the loss of a loved

00:45:00--> 00:46:01

To the Junior, we must move past keeping adjust in our heart and finding angst between us and Allah subhana wa Adana that we put in our heart and desire to free ourselves of that burden. And to let things return to Allah. If new holiday is set up asking Allah, how has this occurred, where in nawada calchaqui, your promises always true. Allah answers by saying that my promise was your family meeting the family of faith, and the family of truth, and that those who are at variance to it who combated who remove themselves from it, that you must have in your heart, Allah for Allah, Allah for Mohammed olive for the deed, that allows you to accept them with their fold as they are calling them

00:46:01--> 00:46:11

to truth, while at the same time putting a barrier from their toxicity and goof, entering into your home and infecting others.

00:46:13--> 00:46:32

And it's a very difficult, difficult balance. It's very difficult for me at times to say to somebody whose son is on drugs, living a party life, choosing a way of haram, giving up their sada re re re

00:46:34--> 00:46:51

revitalizing and nature and nature of haram, that they seek to have everything in a in a status quo. I could live my life, but I can still live in your home and eat your food. And, you know, I'm just like everybody else. The answer is known

00:46:52--> 00:47:30

when a person has matured in sin, when a person has made choices that become harmful to you and your family. When a person has taken a path that is causing an ID generation degeneration of our Eman, removing us from that which is consistent in our heart that detrimental in its effect in our households. There must be effective decisions to keep love between us but in a conditional sense that barriers must be drawn and toxic narratives must be put

00:47:32--> 00:47:38

to an end that they do not hurt and unbalanced and make an imbalance in other spheres of our life.

00:47:39--> 00:47:42

lecom Dino Campania de Subhan Allah,

00:47:43--> 00:47:49

Lockwood, Dino cornea deep, there is a way for you and there's a way for me.

00:47:50--> 00:48:16

All of this requires hikma. All of this requires attention to detail. All of this requires to be guided by pious parts. All of us this should not be done with callousness or upsell pride I am better than you. All of this should not be done at the expense of seeing a future better person in them. And I wish to leave with BUSA as a final thoughts.

00:48:17--> 00:48:24

When Musa killed the man in Egypt, it was the reason that led him to the path of Prophethood

00:48:26--> 00:48:52

I want you to think about that. Allah subhanho wa Taala says in the desert to Musa in that mountain when he arrives, while to La can have better being me. I clothed you with my love via Musa even as a young child I protected from the love of Allah to Musa was that Musa would commit that capital crime of taking another soul unjustly. He thought it was justice, but it was in error.

00:48:53--> 00:49:00

Had Musa not done that he would have remained in Egypt have Musa not done that it would not have led me astray fill out

00:49:01--> 00:49:58

our anger with an individual, our barrier with an individual is not that we cannot assume they will be better later. But we deal with them as they are today. But I will draw is for their Betterment into the future. Allah loved Musa even though he had just committed manslaughter, not for what he had done then or who he was then but for what he will be the Allah Who knows he will be and such as the baraka of the dua of the mothers of Musa, his true mother and his surrogate mother, his adoptive mother, such as the baraka of the people of Betty Israel, he asked for someone to help them that Allah raises an unlikely character. May Allah Subhana Allah to Allah allow us the honor of being in

00:49:58--> 00:49:59

the life of those

00:50:00--> 00:50:47

Who are difficult bad characters today? To move them into better characters tomorrow? May Allah never allow our hearts to give up on any of our families in an absolute sense. May Allah allow us to protect ourselves from them, but that we are always callers to them as new wives. Yeah, Buddha young man, oh my son come on the ship come to the truth, but I won't let you on. Without it as a necessity. Well, suddenly now, our salary was it whether it is a dinner Mohamed, I pray that Allah subhanho wa Taala protects our Eban, the man of our children and our children's children and generations to come. May Allah we do and I regular in our prayers consistent in our EVA, may Allah

00:50:47--> 00:51:27

Subhana Allah to Allah allow it to be reasonably influenced for our future generation. May Allah subhanho wa Taala open our hearts to those who are on the fringe of our communities and families. May Allah Subhana Allah allow us to work in the hearts of those who have turned away from him to turn them to the Truth by his power and leaving the Daiya May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us ease and comfort. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make our Ramadan blessed with the Dalia blessed with his light, blessed with his guidance blessed with the Quran blessed with Priya May Allah Subhana Allah Allah make our cin one of the heart and one of the mind in one of the body. May Allah subhana wa

00:51:28--> 00:51:36

increases and not deprive us. May Allah protect us from the suddenness of death in our families and homes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala assistance

00:51:38--> 00:52:21

and not assist other others against us. We Allah subhanho wa Taala uplift us in our times of sorrow and sadness, make the Quran a reason for our comfort. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah forgive us our trespasses and our mistakes in life by ALLAH SubhanA wa Tada make this Ramadan Ramadan change a time where we come back to Allah subhanho wa Taala and ways better than what we have intended for our own cells that Allah gives us more he died that we thought we could a to assume and practice. May Allah subhana wa to Allah because the people of the Quran Ramadan and outside Ramadan May Allah allow us to live as Imams with the communities calling them to righteousness in our own spheres of influence.

00:52:21--> 00:53:04

May Allah subhana wa Allah give us joy and comfort in our children in our homes. May Allah subhanho wa Taala allow you to feel feel your cry for today and to break your fast with ease and comfort that you receive the joy of your past and on the Day of Judgment. May Allah subhanho wa Taala make your breath fragrant with the fasting breath. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah allow us the honor of calling to what the prophets I send a call to, to what no call to May Allah subhana wa to Allah grant us and the sunnah of our Habib Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, they also kind of to Allah, lift us with his tradition in his way and his modality of life. May Allah make us love what he loved and

00:53:04--> 00:53:46

hate when he hated. May Allah subhanho wa Taala inspire our children to the Quran and its memorization of its practice and its lifestyle. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah protect us from the evil that lurks in the dark, the darkness of the hearts of men the darkness that is in our heart, may Allah Subhana Allah removed from us the pain of debt, and the pain of need towards others. May Allah Subhan Allah to Allah make our love, unconditional to him alone, and make us of those who are seeking Him when others have turned away from Allah make our privacy of greater worth and quality than our public life. May Allah subhanaw taala increase our Taqwa this month of Ramadan and

00:53:46--> 00:53:54

maintained it for us until another Ramadan Allah been on Sunday now, I'd say you know at every event Muhammad Sallallahu it

00:53:55--> 00:53:59

was like we were setting it to sleep and Kathira to have our because

00:54:00--> 00:54:01

the food was

00:54:02--> 00:54:06

really poorly handled in Europe in Ireland in pacella. Why?
