Bad, always in forever We begin with the praise of Allah we send our prayers of peace upon our Navy Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,

00:01:44--> 00:02:14

we testify that there is none that is worthy of worship, but Allah azza wa jal, and then I will never use Allahu Allah USA lemmens is worshipping slave and final messenger. I remind myself and you have Taqwa la xojo. And I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah inherits in me, a greater sense of love for him fear of him, piety and consciousness and Whoa, in His mercy in our privacy in our private life, more so than we seek to show each other publicly Allahumma amin

00:02:15--> 00:02:19

living fearlessly is the hallmark of a Muslim.

00:02:20--> 00:02:36

And Allah subhanho wa Taala in numerous places in the Quran, speaks to the great prophets and messengers of Allah, by repeatedly saying to more than one of them laka Huff, don't be afraid.

00:02:37--> 00:03:21

And I want from the beginning to establish that is a natural human expression, as a part of my humaneness and your humaneness, that there will be moments in your mind, in your heart, in your thoughts, where you hesitate from something for no particular reason other than a moment of fear. And Allah Subhana Allah wants you to separate as a believer, between the fear that is instilled by your humaneness, and blown up increased in your heart by the show your thought and its whisperings. And the second aspect of realizing what is danger and taking precaution.

00:03:23--> 00:03:25

Being afraid

00:03:27--> 00:03:33

of getting onto an aeroplane is something that I've seen and witnessed once in my travels.

00:03:34--> 00:04:12

I was on a flight from Perth to Sydney, and I saw a lady get onto the plane she was held in her hand by a coach, someone who was with her assisting her and whispering her everything will be okay. The noises you hear are them loading the luggage. Don't be afraid. We're going to take it one step at a time. They had her sit in an exit that was near the front of the plane. And I being a person who's inquisitive was watching the drama of the genuine fear and terror that this poor elderly lady was having.

00:04:13--> 00:04:59

And after a few minutes as they begin to get the plane ready and set up and the pilot comes on. The lady screams out. I need to get off. I can't do this. I'm going to die. Everybody on the plane 300 other people are happy to get on the plane. Their mind is not hindered by the thought that cripples them from a normal day to day process. And she was deplaned and apologetically and everybody was very sorrowful for her experience. There are others who are afraid of spiders or cockroaches coming to Australia was one of my fears. My first experience in Australia was something flying that I thought was a bird and it was a cockroach. It was something coming from Canada.

00:05:00--> 00:05:07

I've never experienced fear is natural. But Allah subhanho wa Taala orders us to overcome it.

00:05:09--> 00:05:57

And a lot of what you hear and receive at times, on the news on the media on the things that seek to desensitize us to control and manipulate people into fearing the other fearing something that is not to be feared, making something appear dangerous when it has no danger term such as Islamophobia, where a person it's like arachnophobia fear of spiders, there are people who are afraid of Muslims. There are people who are afraid of laws, people who are afraid of medicines, people who are afraid of plastics, people who are afraid of different things, because of information that they have received and processed in particular ways. And I wanted to speak about the story of Moosa, who

00:05:57--> 00:06:02

repeatedly a lot says to him in Nakuru, an latter half.

00:06:03--> 00:06:52

Could you imagine that on the holy mountain on that blessing place of tourists a not a lot reveals himself to Musa alayhis salam is for 32 kB calamy. What he said, I chose you from amongst humanity to speak directly to you your Moosa and Moosa hears a lot, you know, in a way that is known to him and Allah subhanho wa Taala. And at that moment moves and makes you out to Allah corner of beshara li sorry, oh, Allah opened my heart to believe in the mission of going to face fear around the greatest civilization of the time, the greatest military economic political power of the era. Oh, Allah opened my heart that I can believe that I can overcome this fear. He was terrified.

00:06:54--> 00:07:11

And as Moosa eventually stands in front of fear around a lot describes him for JSF enough See, he he fetta Moosa moves as he stood before Pharaoh inside his heart, he was afraid. Couldn't

00:07:12--> 00:07:16

I said to him Moosa, don't be fearful.

00:07:18--> 00:07:18

I'm with you.

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam

00:07:24--> 00:07:37

as he exits to make the his euro, leaving behind the people of Mecca, leaving behind his family his home his land, leaving behind al cabin will shadow Rafa.

00:07:38--> 00:08:01

And as he sets upon the his euro, he is forced to sit in comfort in a cave for three or four days, until the people of Korea should begin looking for his traces and tracks elsewhere. And as he is in the cave, with his best friend and companion above across the deal,

00:08:02--> 00:08:26

Abu Bakr momentarily feels a moment of fear. And he says, Yeah, Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, lo Navarro illa akademie him la luna, Obi a messenger of God. If they were to just look to where their feet stand, they will see us. So the prophets lie Selim said, Let the hot weather

00:08:28--> 00:08:35

Don't be afraid. And don't feel sorrow in la hermana and a lot of records those words in the

00:08:36--> 00:09:15

fear is one of the most debilitating and easily overcome aspects of our humaneness. If one begins to present to work will Allah wa trusting Allah subhana wa Tada. But the concept of trust at times, many people have been blind to its reality that it begins by putting in your effort to receive the trust and the mercy in your heart that everything will be okay even if it does not work out in the way that you want it to be in the plan that you had in mind.

00:09:16--> 00:09:58

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw a man come to the Friday prayers as we came for solo to do Mara. And he got off his mount. He got off his camel and he left it untied. And he walked into the masjid and as he's entering into the masjid, the prophets I send them said your camel Yeah. Tie it up. Up until today the Arabs when they were there, she mouthed their head dress the red and white checkered they were there if con, they were that black thing that keeps it in place. It's called the con, the thing that you tie up your camel with because it's made in the figure eight and you put each hope of the camel in it so we can't run away. So the prophets of Allah, why don't you send them

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

says yeah, I'll kill her.

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

Take off your thing, tie up your camel, he says to Allah, but I trust Allah.

00:10:06--> 00:10:08

The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said,

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

Whatever works for you to trust the law, tie up your camel first. And then believe that Allah who will assist you that somebody will not untie you that it will not get out without you having done your part.

00:10:26--> 00:11:10

In life, my dear brothers and sisters, the greatest reason that people find themselves held back from success, from economic success, from financial liberty, from moving forward in their life spiritually from getting married, or asking for a divorce, for raising their children in a way that is pleasing to a law making a life decision that impacts their job, doing the things that are times that our mind says but this I don't know, I'm scared. It's right. I believe it's right. But I'm too scared. I don't know if I should invest. I don't know if I should buy I don't know if I should sell. I don't know if I should move forward. One brother

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

who's with us today?

00:11:14--> 00:11:20

He came in he said, Jeff, yeah, he I'm going to ask for a sister's hand. But I'm scared.

00:11:21--> 00:11:24

You know, the family. I said, Yes, I know that there should What should I say?

00:11:26--> 00:11:31

He wants insider information, trade secrets, Mashallah.

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

I said, Yeah, you have to put your trust in Allah and just be yourself.

00:11:37--> 00:11:45

He said, just be myself. I said, Just be yourself. Be who you are. Don't put on a show. don't represent yourself in a way that's not true.

00:11:47--> 00:11:52

And the Prophet that the brothers have handled law, he made it to the doorstep.

00:11:53--> 00:11:54

And fear overcame him.

00:11:56--> 00:12:09

The brother walked all the way, parked his car, came to the house time, made it all the way turned around and called me from the car. He said, check. I'm so scared. What if they don't like me? I said, you won't get married.

00:12:12--> 00:12:25

I said your bigger problem is is if they do like you, and you don't like them, that's a bigger problem. So he laughed, and I said go back in smilla the brothers now married Mashallah Sharla he's with us today.

00:12:26--> 00:13:03

Trusting Allah means doing your part. Moving forward, taking a step, letting your mind confine you. Hold you look at the greatest Jihad that a person performs the greatest thing you can do, as a believer in support of the truth. Kelly metal so to speak a word of truth in front of somebody who has power but is oppressive. Somebody who has the power to exact injustice upon you, but you still speak out you still represent the truth because it is the truth.

00:13:05--> 00:13:52

That your fear for your wealth, for your honor, for your name for your position for your privilege, for your comfort, does not restrict you from being a person who stands up for the truth. So Moosa, Allah says to him, Latifah, don't be afraid. Don't be afraid to speak the truth. Don't be afraid to knock on the door. Don't be afraid if it doesn't work out the way you plan the way you intend. And Subhan Allah, in the journey of each of the prophets of Allah, Allah uses that same word with Prophet dawu, the alayhis salaam, with Prophet Lu alayhis salaam, with Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salaam. Allah uses it with Prophet Yusuf and prophet Yaqoob Allah wa salam, Allah uses it with our

00:13:52--> 00:14:41

nebby you Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam them that he is the one who was made to Live Fearless, that that which is fearful in the hearts of others, is removed with the courage given to him by Allah. I end in celebration of our Navy Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Alinea to be a pilot It is reported in sight and Bahati that he speaks these words and when I tell you I Li are the Allahu anhu said it. It's not like any man like me and you I Li are the Allahu anhu is a warrior from the warriors of Allah was a one who was a person who is endowed with strength, with clarity of mind with physical and spiritual powers that none of us possess. I llyod Allahu anhu is the one who

00:14:41--> 00:15:00

won the battle of haven. rip the gate of the castle off the walls to allow the believers access. I Li B authority is the one who single handedly held back 300 men who came to try to capture him for ransom because

00:15:00--> 00:15:10

They wanted to exhort the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam that man, Ali, this same man, he says either hemiola what is

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

when the battle was at its full range.

00:15:16--> 00:15:20

What Hefner and us the Sahaba were scared.

00:15:21--> 00:15:31

If Tibet nephew Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wasallam. We hid in shelter behind the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam

00:15:33--> 00:15:34

in the Battle of Hunan,

00:15:35--> 00:16:27

when the Muslim army was encircled 10,000 the number or more they entered into the valley, and from above the cliff tops the tribe of houses in encircled them and began to pellet them with arrows and spears, and rocks. And as soon as they were caught in that ambush, most of us will have ran for cover, except for five in wondering why your seven men stood with Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the prophets Allah Allah, how do you sell them at that moment when others Ran? He stood on his horse, and he drew his sword. And he said some law Why don't you sell them poetically? And then bu laccadive and apne. Abdulmutallab men are odd me for her another. I am the prophet of God.

00:16:27--> 00:16:33

It is no lie. The one who wishes to face me Let him come. Some A lot of us

00:16:34--> 00:16:50

a Muslim lips fearlessly. And the fearlessness that we have is derived from a root cause of faith in our heart that I will speak to you about after Jin subtlest or ha aku holy Heather Estelle federal law Emily Willa

00:16:59--> 00:17:48

Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam O Allah mandanna v. Abadi, Mohammed Abdullah Ali Abdullah Saleh tasleem when my bad deleeuw tequila, Allah subhanho wa Taala describes the great companions of the Prophet I sell them and those who follow him an example that they do not change the tradition that they have always maintained. And one of the worst factors of fear of inferiority complex of lacking self confidence and faith, lacking self esteem in our emaan. Lacking trust in our relationship with Allah is that we begin to chameleon ourselves, to masquerade our behaviors that we change the very essence of our submission to Allah to something other than it that Islam changes from being the

00:17:48--> 00:18:40

religion of giving yourself in surrender to God, to simply being known as the religion of just peace. For us as Muslims. Islam is described as the religion of giving oneself to attain peace with a loss of Hannah winter Adda It begins with Sameer Anna, Aparna we hear the command of God I live in LA I live in gamma Mr. rasuluh we hear the Word of God we hear the instructions of His Messenger what alpha a tomato now with Elena, we've been ordered. So we comply with that which we have been ordered and shown in precedents and in behavior of our Navy Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. What makes a Muslim fearless is that they know that between them and a law is one step to the grave.

00:18:42--> 00:19:33

And I want you to know young and old male and female, mature and student, that between you and a loss of Hannah Hawa to Allah there is no separation except the breath that you take. And the breath you take is counted by Allah for you. It begins depleting the moment your life has begun, and where you are today and where you want to be tomorrow. The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says with guru hair demelza and unless that in another rewire, make remembrance of the thing that destroys desire or destroys enjoyment, Allah who will mount that your death makes you focused on what you really should be fearful of Fela Taha fool whom waha funi Don't be afraid of the creation but be

00:19:33--> 00:19:59

fearful of the Creator. subhanho wa Taala. The essential element that at times is missing from many of us in our homes, is that the concept of taqwa law of fearing a law of being obedient to a law of putting the Word of God in the order of His Messenger before our in our own desire, our own habits, our own meanings and dealings, our own financial aspirations

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

That we turn away from what Allah commanded from what those who thought, four out of the minute dunya for a cheap share of this worldly life. It gives you that insecurity. What happens if I pass away who will look after my children, what will happen to my home? What will come after me today, but the believer wakes up in the morning,

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

a little bit before the dawn.

00:20:27--> 00:20:30

And they make their evolution and they make their dhikr of Allah.

00:20:32--> 00:20:38

And they stand before Allah when everyone on their street, their lights are out there light comes on.

00:20:40--> 00:21:00

And they pray to Iraq before federal guards arrived. It settles whatever fear whatever worry whatever anger is in their heart. It is for this reason the prophets I seldom said to Raka to prostrations before the Fed should have prayer is better than the world than anything you acquire in it.

00:21:01--> 00:21:07

They begin their day by putting their head in the ground and knowing a law is the one who is exalted.

00:21:09--> 00:21:57

And they continue for the rest of the day, la de la, I owe no one and I don't expect anyone to owe me. They put in an honest, hard effort to earn the IRS code that is written for them in the heavens that they struggle to earn on the earth. They have a trust in that each and every breath is given to them by Allah subhanho wa Taala. And if a loss of Hannah, which Allah is the one who keeps the birds up in the sky, and the ends fed in their burrows, that no one who has a sincerity of heart accepted their needs will be met by our Creator, our maker, the Almighty Allah Subhana. Allah to add your fearlessness comes from the fact that you know, at any moment that I am good with Allah, I'm good

00:21:57--> 00:22:45

with my family. I'm good with my neighbors. I haven't left my wife with a cross word. My children do not have hatred in their heart towards me. I've spent upon those who are needy, those who are elevated those who are lonely. I am open to criticism open to accepting advice. And when I'm asked for it, I give it truthfully and sincerely to the one who requests I'm a good friend than a keeper of secrets. I'm a person who seeks the AF era by investing in my dunya. Now ask Allah Subhana which Allah to remove fear from our hearts that debilitates us from success, to replace it with strength of purpose and Eman and to make us trusting upon a law because we put effort in our days and in our

00:22:45--> 00:23:37
