Woman, Utah, a la hora Sula, who confess 1000 alima. And my 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. We testified that none is worthy of worship of Allah and that Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam as his worshiping slave and final messenger. I always remind myself and you have Taqwa Eliza gel. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah grants you and I steadiness of faith and prosperity of a man, that we grow to love Allah Subhana Allah to Allah fear Him, and be conscious of our love and desire for his hope in this life and into the next. I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah makes our engagement
with him in our private and personal life more so of greater value than what we seek to share. And to portray to each other Allahumma amin, I asked a loss of how I went to Allah and His blessing day of jumaane in this blessing hour of holberton. Juma to grant us an immense a patient and a forgiveness that removes us from jahannam Allahumma, amin, and grants us the chef Tao and Abu Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
I wish insha Allah to speak about recovery. One of the constants in my life in your life is folly and error. And especially whenever we fall out of balance, one of the key aspects of Muslims life is to be able to write themselves up, it's no good assuming that you will always remain firm and standing. And in fact, the very essence of the model and the very essence of our Salah is built upon that premise of asking Allah Subhana Allah to give us an uprightness in our conduct, I want you to think about that word is the karma. What does it mean to ask a law to be upon us sirata muster theme, that it's not just I want to live upon a straight path, but I want to remain upright on it.
And I want to be able to manifest and remain strong in it. Whenever you speak about balance, there are three components that are important for you and I to consider. The first aspect of balance is that which is of stability that is beyond yourself, those of you who are engineers, Mashallah you're going to understand this at a greater capacity may be as strong as I may be, if the earth beneath me shakes, I follow along with it. And the foundation becomes more important at times, then the beauty and the structure of what is built upon it. Now lots of Hana with Allah gives us this imagery in the Quran. That the tree of Eman the tree of faith, of blue have fabbi to follow through half is
what you see of its branches and fruit and splendor above that hovers into the sky. What makes it so is that its roots are deep and sunk down foundation than the Earth. It's for this reason a lot quotes many of the prophets of Allah in the Quran by saying that they're due to Allah at a moment of test and trial with a bit academic Anna one so now Ll COVID cathrine Allah grant us a firm foothold make our feet planted into the ground and give us support over those who rebel and wage war against you. Yeah, Allah.
The first level of balance that you're asking Allah Subhana Allah for when you say dinner Surat and Mr. team lead us to that straight path is Oh Allah when the earth beneath
Mi shakes. And when I think my faith is strong enough, allow me not to fall away from the path because of those external forces around me. And so Pamela, many of us, we believe that our hearts are firm upon faith, but a question may come
or something we may learn or he or interact with you that it makes a person shaky and quiver in their heart doesn't find the constancy that it had before. The second aspect of his stefana, of being upright of being firm, is that we have to recognize that for every one way of moving, there's always a requisite counterbalance, and of the laws of science is that there's actions and then there's reactions to those actions. And everything that you encounter leaves a trace and a contact upon you. And every person you interact with you leave a trace and a contact upon them, whether financially or emotionally or spiritually or physically. All of us we are consumed consistently in
contact and in stress with each other, that the friction of our life at times wears away our faith.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam says in the authentic hadith in Eman, lay a blue layer blue fee jiofi adhikam. Eman becomes worn out and tarnished within your heart within you cannot tap left via the way clothing The more you wear it the more you wash it becomes faded and worn out and and and put to task for central LA and ujet de manaphy Alou become so always come back and ask a lot to rejuvenate, to reignite to recover faith back into your hearts.
Every action has a consequence. Every look has a consequence every word has a represent reciprocation in its consequence. And the choices that you and I make, of course, are what define the level of our submission to Allah Subhana Allah to Allah, we live at times in a world where people wish to be Muslim without the submission.
They wish to be Muslim without the acceptance of what it means to give yourself over to a law. So in a few minutes, you and I are going to be proven proven to us by Allah, Who is the master and who is the slave who was the Almighty Who is the elevated and who was the lowly and humbled, whose face is in the dirt and who is the one who is exalted.
And in both of those instances of balance,
there comes the third which is coming to understand the need of being able to recover is that there is always a debit credit situation in our life. And if you take more than you give, if you live out of balance, where you are not earning as much as you are spending where you are asking of a law what you are not willing to fulfill in return in your covenant, and Allah Subhana Allah to Allah in Surah tin Fatiha in the Hadith mentioned to us by the prophets I send them he says how they're asked to baney whether in Abdi, my servant, and I have signed a contract I've made a covenant that you've asked for something but now you must fool with with with with you cannot withdraw from what it is
that that you have promised to fulfill to Allah. And therefore for most, we find that struggle between us and our relationship with Allah Subhana Allah to Allah is that we seek to call upon the law at demand and when I need you answer, and when I am in need, I need to find you Where have you been? And many of the questions that I'll get asked other imams will be asking questions that I will have in you will have in our heart Even if we don't declare it down to LMU legibly, I asked and nothing happened. I prayed and I didn't feel any different people tell me you know you should experience something and I just did so then there didn't feel I didn't feel anything. Where's Allah?
Why haven't I experienced a lot in my life. And it's almost as if a contemptuous relationship that we establish with Allah subhana wa tada that you assume that whether it is out of your neediness or narcissism, that a law must make himself manifest to you because you are that important into this world in life. Allah Subhana Allah says to you plainly firm in charge of value, let the one who chooses faith comm woman chat affiliate for the one who wishes to recant and turn away it's their prerogative and choice
When sorority Mr. klieman, for tiberiu, this path is there for you to follow, noticing that you will make he will say it, he did not lead me to the path. It's not a law who will walk your path for you. You are the one who wants to identify it or a law, show me where it is, and I will choose
to maintain it. As the law says to you, in their heyday, now who Seville I lead them to the choice, I lead them to the divergent paths of life, I lead them to make their Qatar imageshack Iran, we're in Makkah fora. Either you will choose to be a person who is grateful and honoring to the tradition you'll have with a law, or you will choose to be ungrateful
and bury away the faith that should be in your heart under desire in doubt.
And therefore, the three elements of balance are at heart of my karma and yours, we're always in battle with those three, the external forces that are beneath us, that shake us that make us tumble over.
That desire of having more than what we invest, giving is not as much as we're taking,
especially from those who are near us and those who are important and masterful in our life. And third, that we have been recognized that we must counterbalance and upright ourselves that if I tip over too far to the right, I must throw weight to the left. Who is it that will pull me back from the brink? Who is it that you have put in your life? Who is your reserve line to bring you to heal and to stand you upright before Allah Subhana who went to Allah
and after having identified that our karma is something that is built on a Cognizant understanding of our relationship with Malika Monique, the owner of all dominions and Kingdom. See when Allah Subhana Allah speaks about himself. He doesn't always speak with his first name. He doesn't speak for himself. I am Allah. He doesn't say tabouleh cola who led the big hill milk? He says Tara keleti via the moon Gloria says Allah bless it is the one who the kingdom only belongs to him. And he doesn't tell you it's a law because it's self evident that the one who wants to know will search will see and will desire the one who wishes to fall away falaya de la Hashi. They bring no harm to
Allah subhana wa Tada.
So, where do we find the path to recovery?
Where do we come back? All of us, myself and you all of us even from the time of the nebia sigh Selim. What is the mandate of recovery back to is the karma? How do I throw my weight back to the center? How do I ensure that my feet remain firm, but that even if the earth shakes that I don't fall with the trials of life and the difficulties, how can I make sure that the contact that I have with others, positive and negative doesn't overwhelm me?
And make me recant what I know in my heart to be truth, which is that I am the servant and he is the master before just totally saraha I begin with point number one, from the ability to recover, to regain our sense of love for Allah.
a fear of Allah and of hope in Allah see that word taqwa is the final advice Allah gives to mankind. The last verses the prophets I seldom receives is in Surah Al Baqarah Yeah. yohannes all mankind not yet you're Latina. amanuel Yeah, yohannes or Buddha or a backhoe?
Come back to your Lord as a servant be Abdullah Allah subhana wa Tada. Or Buddha is not the ritual less than a third of all the acts of worship or ritual acts you know will do and so yeah, I'm and sada and fasting 1314 and 15 of the month, those are the rituals taught. But two thirds of the bads of that are requisite in my life in your life. You just simply being a student, who wants a good clean Hello income after you leave, to make your family proud your country that might have sent you as an international student proud that you want to honor your family and your tradition
to just have in your heart Allahumma fumina aloha makina ve helideck oma give us sufficiency in the halaal and turn us away from the Huron. Just that mere intention of saying I want to be the best husband that can be and you're not yet married. Just in your heart, having the knee and knee asylee her
that in your heart you have aim and hope that you have intent
And therefore point number one for you and I to always be of those who recover, that it doesn't matter how far you go, you will come back how far you stray you come back how many times you fell down, you stand up. Point number one is always that in your heart in your nia. It is always to be connected to Allah subhanho wa Taala. So it doesn't matter how many sins you made, how many solar you missed, how many prayers you haven't offered, how many Hajj that you could have gone that you didn't pay the money for, and didn't make the attempt. It doesn't matter how many years of Zika or South Africa you have ignored. It doesn't matter what your eyes have been infected with, with her
arm image, it doesn't matter how far you've gone, you recognize that with a law if I take one step
a lot takes tend to me.
You probably walk to Allah, He will run to me that figurative image of the words of the prophets I send them that one step to Allah is just that one turn back. That a lot tells us Oh ye who believe it's not Oh, yeah. Are you how soon? It's not Oh, sinners. It's all believers. It's not Yeah. yohannes tubo it's not all mankind repent. It's not mankind do repent to Allah. It's only the believers. It's only those who have in their heart that there is a flame a spark of Eman even if it is just a pilot light, not a raging storm of faith.
Never let that light be put out.
You read una luthra uno de la look at the imagery of Allah. He says the wish to put out the light to put out that flame in your heart with the levina cafaro
they they may wish as much as they have to turn you away. You do have an sebelah to turn you off that path that certain will stop him
but that intent in your heart Oh Allah let me come back. Oh Allah let me not fall away. Oh Allah Allahu Medina. Allahu Allah, the chiricahua Shu kracauer snared by the tick. That just the simple moment you wake up in the morning said hamdulillah that when you sneeze and you said it you recognize the law.
Don't let the near the spark of flame be pulled out. Afterwards insulted sir ah ha I'll speak about two more important steps in sha Allah. After the sincere intent. The actions that follow akuto holy Heather was still fiddle La La the muddy will.
Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was Salam ala nabina Muhammad, Abdullah Ali Abdullah Saleh at mo tasneem recovery.
recovering from the lapse that is inevitable the prophets Allah says in the hadith of Lima Muslim low limb to nibble if you all mankind were not Kip did not have the capacity to sin. If you all were not sinners, let that have Allahu Allah would remove you from the earth. When a judge called me up boon and returned in your place or mankind the different creation
who will commit sins were selfish, Allah, you will not ever meant to be be an angel. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah did not ever intend for you to worship him the way the angels worship. In the authentic hadith of Allah Muslim the prophets I seldom said this summer, the earth the heavens above it, it squeaked. It couldn't bear the the burden that the weight of what had happened will help.
And it is right that it squeaked under the burden. They said what happened on messenger of Allah. He said there isn't a place where there aren't a four fingers in level consider the melaku lillahi subhana wa Taala except that there's an angel who is worshiping Allah. Allah doesn't need you Yeah, Abdullah. Allah Subhana Allah to Allah does not need your a band that does not need you to add to be a one who elevates him. He is magical molk the King of all kings
and therefore men nominal slightly harmful NFC.
Point number two is that when you do good, it's for yourself. It's a self investment. It savings for the future. It's the bulk of your life. When you give charity you're giving your your you're increasing your wealth. When you give a kind word somebody's gonna help you when you're down. When you teach others Allah will send those who will teach those who you can't teach. So panela you could be a half of the Quran and can teach your children the Quran.
You could be a mo had the thing you can give your children the Hadith of the Prophet is telling you need something
Else you could be a carpenter we say in our country in Egypt bevagna Giada. Mahela right, the door of the carpenter is the one that's always falling off the hinges. He's fixing everybody else's doors. How many people how many doctors pass away while their patients live.
Your aim is life is not to be self centered is to be a radiant light for those around you. And that comes from this recognition that the good you do is self serving. It's one of the great mysteries of our a bad day with a loss of Hannah and with Allah, that you earn a macom with a law by lifting and elevating others to it. And therefore the prophets lie Selim said hi eurocom the best of you who's the best of us mentale lemon for an hour I want to teach you the Quran and conveys it to others. The prophets I send them gives us an understanding what this Quran means. It's not just you have to memorize the whole Quran and teach everything manually, the law will be hiring you for COVID Dean,
the one whom Allah wishes good, he gives them an understanding of the religion that they can elevate and bring the Quran to others that you're not just saw, but you're Muslim, you're not just good yourself, but you are Muslim for others, you bring others to the foreign way of life that you seek.
So you make your mission
to be in the assistance of others. How eurocom and Falcon Lynas, the best of you is the most useful to others. And third and finally,
of the things that help us to recover
is to become acquainted with the nature of evil. Pamela Why did something bad happened to me some kind of law you know, some of even some of our former students here at UW a in many places, you'll get a message or a call check if this has happened. This illness This is my family my
wife has a lot that I pray I fast Hey job, everything hamdulillah Why am I the one Subhana Allah, I sat there with myself as I was preparing for this discussion. I want to leave you with this. Because I want you to understand that what you believe to be evil doesn't necessarily mean it is the concept of evil. The creation of evil in your mind of what you think evil to be, may not necessarily be what Allah subhanho wa Taala considers evil for your state. The prophets I send him said the room perfectly. Perhaps your poverty is your cure. What does he know the word and perhaps you being a wealthy person? Is your cure? Had you been poor? You would have turned away from a law had you been
wealthy you would have been just about I need turned away from Allah.
I looked into the life of the prophets I seldom and I thought let me let me just make a note of how many people the Prophet buried. How many people the prophet who were from his family who he loved, he lost.
Grandfather, Uncle Abu polyp, his wife Khadija Hamza De La Hoya and Jaffa in Abu
Abu Mejia, his cousin, another cousin of his sallallahu alayhi wa sallam,
three of his wives
Rihanna, Khadija rhodiola. Juana
seven of his children.
Did you hear that numbers? Pamela?
Salalah hottie usnm
Makayla, tomorrow kya. Cobra, he will cause him Abdullah Han Allah.
grandchildren, forget about his father and mother being raised alone. So a lot of us in
what do you consider difficulty may actually be a blessing lassa and decorah who shave perhaps you may hate something, despise it in your heart you find it incredible to deal with. But that's best for you.
It's better for you. It is better for that child that you see these say Subhanallah Why is this child in in Yemen that he has passed away at such a young age? Why has this happened? And you look at it from the eyes of the dunya but you forget the justice of the alcohol It doesn't mean that we rejoice at the loss but we understand that the higher Couldn't you who be a day that you have out of the profits I sell them all good is in your hand yeah Allah meaning that even the things that we didn't presume presume to be good in it is good for us in our asset or if not understood by us in our dunya so whenever there is difficulty in your life yeah, Abdullah Yeah, I met Allah.
Lakota Masada Cafiero su Linda. make mention of your harm in the life of the prophets. I seldom look to a Sierra learn of the struggle.
He had hudl keytab akua Allah says to you Hey Alia Salam take hold of the book with strength.
Islam, it doesn't it's not halfway with Hulu facin MacArthur, you hold on to the book with strength with conviction. May Allah Subhana Allah Allah grant us as Rama, also Lillehammer wa Sallim wa barik ala Sayidina Habibi, now Muhammad, Allah manga Allah the critical issue. Click our sniper that take a lot of Medina Divina Jana 70, many Allahumma salli wa sallim wa barik ala Habibi. Now whenever you Now let's add Mohammed in Salalah. Howdy, howdy, what's up with Selim? Sleeman kathira I pray that Allah Subhana Allah to Allah protects our students here at the university returns those who are international to their lands and safety and comfort and pride for their families and their people.
May Allah Subhana Allah ease all of your affairs and make easy all of your burdens and tasks and May Allah Subhana Allah, allow us to remain upon our serata most Hakim until we return to Him upon the path of Mohammed Sall Allahu Allah us Allah Subhana Allah because he is a fool and I sat down when Allah mousseline when hamdulillahi Rabbil alameen wa alcumus sada
Stole total also.
Humble yourselves to Allah Subhana Allah to add up face to the Qibla directly Lower your head in humility and humbleness to Allah. Keep your eyes at the place of your sujood pray and consider that this may be your last. Allahu acabo
