00:00:37--> 00:01:16

brothers and sisters, in time like this, there is nothing better than being optimistic, truly, and having hope because you believe in Allah subhanho wa Taala and Allah azza wa jal, nothing in this world happens without his will, good or bad, the good that hamdulillah Bill Allah mean out of His grace, and that which we see bad is out of his Heckman wisdom. And we need to understand what is my role here? How can I translate all of this, then a moment like this to become optimistic and having hope in that matter? And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and the MBR were the masters in this field. We've been taught through the Gambia, from the Quran from the Sunnah of the Prophet sallallahu

00:01:16--> 00:01:42

sallam, no matter how harsh how difficult the situation is to stay always optimistic, having hope in Allah subhanho wa Taala rasool Allah has Salah Salem canyons, you will find in the Hadith, the Messenger of Allah, he always loved alpha L, which means good omens, he's always optimistic sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, but that's not just from the prophet is for the Gambia, all of them. Here's some example that Allah Subhana Allah mentioned to us in the Quran, Ibrahim alayhis salam

00:01:43--> 00:01:59

Ibrahim alayhi salam was was imprisoned, and he was always looking at torture, and then the final judgment and the sentence was to be thrown into the fire as he was flying into the air to be thrown into the fire in a moment like this. What can you do?

00:02:00--> 00:02:09

There is nothing you could do truly. So that's up to that moment of despair. Gibreel comes to Brahim and I just said I'm on the Ask him says hello Kim and Hajra do need help.

00:02:10--> 00:02:36

And Ibrahim Ali salaam to Sabra tells the real call Malika hija from you know I don't need anything. Well I can just be Allah whenever mela will kill. I trust Allah subhana wa Dona Allah is enough for me and my Reliance my trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah azza wa jal immediately change the role of the fire called nya Anaru coolibah wa salam O Allah Ibrahim, Allah called the Fire be cool.

00:02:37--> 00:02:37

Don't hurt him.

00:02:39--> 00:03:02

Allah Subhana Allah made that miracle for Brahim and his sunnah. Musa alayhis, Salam. Musa alayhis salam or he took Bani Israel, the irony. He took them from Egypt, to take them to the Holy Land. And on the way there that they were skeptical about Musa Musa as mission. Throughout all his Kenyan wisdom on his thought was salam. They have a hard time.

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

And as they arrived at the sea, and now they realize the army is coming behind them, and this is another direction there is no way to go. So what are the certain Musa lism Carlo in the LA mudra? Cool, we're doing? They're catching up with us. We're doomed. In a moment like this. There's no escape. How are you going to take the people out of this visit right now? But Musa alayhis salam would full confidence. What did he say to them? Carla Kela in the mire of busy deal. No, no, Allah is with me. He will guide me through and immediately Allah told mo Salah is Sarah Medusa that's thick, just a stick piece of wood, just strike the sea and split and made that people go through

00:03:44--> 00:03:51

with two safeties. panela in the story of Yaqoob Alehissalaam he lost one child after the other one.

00:03:52--> 00:04:33

And yaku one time after the other one, he kept all these three years grieving over the loss of a son. Use of and then he lost his other son. And then what did he say? When he was reminded was that this is called in them ash Kuba Thea. We're hosting it Allah said I only disclose my solar to Allah subhanho wa taala. But he still told his children Karla ebony, it Hubble for the Hassan Musa Vova. He says My dear children just wanted to go go out there. Look for use of look for his brother. What I tell you assume Rohilla don't despair of the mercy of Allah subhana wa Tiana. So in Allah Simrock Allah, il como calculon Only those who deny Allah subhanho wa Taala will be desperate of His mercy.

00:04:34--> 00:05:00

Which means if you know that Allah subhana wa was capable of all things, and Allah is the Most Merciful. There is hope in this in this situation, and may Allah make it come easier, but I'm gonna make it swiftly out of banal Amen. Brothers and sister we have seen that from life of the prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam in Makkah. In Mecca when the Sahaba were under torture, under siege, and they dealt with so many atrocities that some of them had to escape Mecca to go to Abyssinia but those were our

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

unable to do so because of the conditions such as VLAN kebab it will erode through the Allah Tonawanda so Hi Bill, roomie they came to the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when they saw him he was he was sleeping, taking a nap under the shade of Aqaba.

00:05:15--> 00:05:21

When someone like kebab Rhodiola Dona wa he was tortured so severely with fire over his shoulder over his back.

00:05:22--> 00:05:49

So when he came to the Prophet Salla sama they saw him in that condition. Talia rasool Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Dustin Solana, so they are Rasulullah Could you please make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala to give us victory? Can you please ask Allah subhanaw taala make it come quickly? And the Prophet saw some he sat up looking at them and he says look those who were before they went through more difficult conditions like than yours, like what you're going through in comparison to those who were before there's nothing

00:05:50--> 00:06:18

they said I promise you, the victory of Allah has come in Allah subhanho wa Taala will make this faith prevail. He says God will come comment as to you know, but you just you hasty luck. You want everything to be on your own calendar, not Allah subhanaw taala as well. And Allah subhana wa Tada promised prevailed eventually, brothers and sisters, we've seen that as well. When the Prophet sallallahu sallam, he had to leave Mecca. He had to escape Mecca to go to Medina.

00:06:20--> 00:07:01

And on the way as they want them, they hid in the cave of sower in the mountains of across the across the Allah to Nevada. He's documenting and mentioning to us the moment when the people of Makkah they arrived at that cave, random cave in the mountains. They arrived at that cave. And he said, Radi Allahu Tonawanda I swear if they looked under their feet, they would have seen us but they couldn't. Because Allah subhanaw taala shielded them, he protected them. So when the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told me when I was told that also Allah Salah Salem Rasul Allah told him Kalia Abubaker Abu Bakr, he says, says, Matt, I don't know his name, Allah Azza Houma. What do you think

00:07:01--> 00:07:44

about us both over here and Allah is with us. And Allah is with us. We're not alone. We're not just do. Allah subhanho wa Taala is with us. As they were moving from that cave towards Medina. They were chased after by Surat Abdul Malik and magician Rajah Allah, Allah who became Muslim afterwards, he wanted the prize. And he was chasing after them. And as he was coming closer and closer, the hoofs of his horse kept sinking in the ground in the in the sand until he realized, you know what? He's been protected. I can't reach him. So he asked the professor some to pause and stop. He said, I'll give you safety. Just Can I speak to you and you want to speak to him. And the Prophet Salah Sam

00:07:44--> 00:07:55

gave him the promise that one day with full confidence in a moment like this moment of distress, he said, Look, go back. And I promise you one day you're going to receive the bracelets of Kisara of Persia.

00:07:56--> 00:08:32

That will be a ridiculous promise to give in a moment like that. But that's the premise of someone who's confident that Allah subhanho wa Taala is with him. Over close the deal. When he was surprised, she says How come we are a solo how is this happening? Carla has an in Allah hermana don't be sad. Allah is with us. The same thing happened with the Prophet Sal awesome and better. And it's happening on hand up the Battle of the Trench, and almost every aspect of his journey Salawat Allahu wa salam ala. When woman's become so hard and difficult. It is he'll bring that tranquility and peace to the community to the ummah. sallallahu alayhi wa sallam with his confidence

00:08:34--> 00:08:40

with his confidence and your clean uncertainty, that everything is in the hands of Allah subhanho wa Taala these people are just

00:08:41--> 00:08:43

their players in that whole game.

00:08:45--> 00:09:12

And they think they are in control. But Allah subhanho wa Taala allows us for a hikma for wisdom. And we ask Allah subhana wa to show us this wisdom and Americas make us make it give us the ability to see that hope and optimism in this difficult time. We ask Allah subhanaw To make it easy for our brothers and sisters because they are blind. I mean, we ask ALLAH SubhanA to protect the machine. But I mean of course Oh Cody ha That was tough for Allah Allah Allah muddy welcome. What is that Muslim universal Pharaoh in the who will have the photo Rahim?

00:09:24--> 00:10:00

Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil Alameen wa sallahu wa salam Baraka, you know, Muhammad wa ala alihi wa sahbihi wa seldom at the Sleeman Kathira mama, brothers and sisters Allah subhanho wa Taala tells us in the Quran, Allah Quran Allah Confucius hula was wattle Hassan, he says Subhana wa Taala that Allah azza wa jal certainly, he has given you in the example of the Prophet salah and the best model to follow even in one was difficult moment like this is not a time of Gemma to be desperate. That's the time to have hope. And Allah Subhan Allah has heck my mercy to the world. Brothers and sisters we've seen that in the prophets of Allah Salam because even he him as a prop

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

First of all what Allah said him sometimes he will also have the moment or he'd be saddened by the by the statement he hears from people and Allah azza wa jal reminded him Volcana Allah mu Finola, Hassan Aquila, the Kowloon phenom live the Buena, well I cannot believe it to be Atilla which Allah has done and the prophets are awesome. We certainly know that what they say grieves you. And it saddens me. It's just true as a human being somehow no matter how much optimistic we can be, but still, you want to hear these news. And these are the things you still feel that in your heart, but Allah is telling the Prophet Salla Sam is not that denying the truth. Now they know what the truth

00:10:33--> 00:11:08

is. But they're just being caffeine, which means they just deny the hack altogether. They denied the hack. They don't want to believe in that hack because their hearts are played and disease. May Allah subhana protect us from that era. But I mean, it is that you're claiming that certainty that will make people too shallow to go through these difficult times. There was a moment in the story of the Syrah when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam was still in Mecca. I want to conclude with this inshallah as an example for how certainty can make people's power change. You know, the prophets of Allah Salah when he was in Makkah, as we know, he wasn't a very weak moment. He had no protection

00:11:08--> 00:11:23

except from Allah subhanho wa taala. And his tribe at some point, he lost that support when his uncle Obatala passed. So there was a time I was not even tell her I was not even told how was from the tribe that was responsible to care for the Kaaba, so the gates of Aqaba, were in his hand.

00:11:24--> 00:12:04

So he's the one who opens the gate of the Kaaba for the people to get him out. So he used to do that on Mondays and Thursdays is one of those days. Rasul Allah has Salah Sam, he came with the people with the machete and the non Muslims to enter the Kaaba. So as man, he cringed, he didn't like that sight. Like he's allowed Mohammed to come to the Kaaba. He didn't like that at all. However, it's a call of Allah to Allah, he wanted to min so I insulted him. I started insulting the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, no matter what I said to him, hello, man, he kept patient with me. And he kept his his patients. And then he says Callejas man, like a Cetara yo, Mama Cetara. Haddad miftah,

00:12:04--> 00:12:09

haoma VAD other Ohio *, because one day, you will see this key in my hand.

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

And I'll put whatever I want

00:12:13--> 00:12:38

with full confidence or Ceman. He said come in and look at the Halacha declaration that time Correct. You will be doomed in that moment. Because no, they will be actually a bit will be will be praised in that moment. And it did happen. When the Prophet saw some conquered Maccha when he conquered Makkah, the keys of Kava were given to him. And he asked Wordsworth Marvin Tala was his family, and he gave it back to them.

00:12:40--> 00:13:17

Because it stays in your hand. But your brothers and sisters That's the promise of Allah subhanho wa Taala with full certainty Allah azza wa jal can deliver that. For us in this time, there's really no time to grieve with him. I know time to waste and grieving, it's time to do the work. So this is your time and moment to send your support. And make sure make your DUA and help them go out there and speak to the people help change that perception that people have about the situation. May Allah subhanaw taala make it easy for brothers isn't because they are but Alameen Allah Who Melinda and fina will finally be my alumna in the cannula limit Hakeem Allah Martina fusina Taqwa was actually
