Shaykh Yasir Qadhi acquaints us with the duas to be said in times of distress and calamity such that  an affirmative response is gained.

Ibn ‘Abbas RA said: When Prophet Ibraheem AS was thrown into the fire of Namrood, he said: “Hasbunallahu wa Ni’mal Wakeel – Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and, He is the Best Disposer of affairs.” So did Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, when he was told: “A great army of the pagans had gathered against him, so fear them”. But he said: “Allah (Alone) is sufficient for us, and He is the Best Disposer of affairs (for us)”.

Dua of Prophet Yunus AS -’ La Ilaha Illa Anta Subhanaka Inni Kuntu Minaz Zalimeen – There are none worthy of worship besides You. Glorified are You. Surely I am from the wrongdoers.’

Trials and calamities test the true strength of a Believer and exhibit his stance in this situation – that is, whether he evokes Allah with humility and submissiveness placing complete trust in Allah or otherwise.

00:01:06--> 00:01:30

The two hours that are mentioned in the Quran upon the tongues of the prophets are the greatest of us. And in today's first half of our hauteville I will mention to us that I believe every single one of us should not just memorize but use frequently. All of us know these doors that are Quranic doors, on the tongues of the prophets of Allah. And so today we will

00:01:32--> 00:02:15

remind ourselves of the meanings and the power of two phrases from the tongues of two prophets. The first of them is the daughter of the Prophet Ibrahim, and the second is the daughter of the Prophet Yunus as a human set up. And both of these daughters were said, at times of great difficulty, at times of distress, when it appeared that there was no hope left. What do I did the Prophet say, when all hope of this world was cut off? We learn in the Quran and in the sooner the two hours of these two prophets. As for the draw of the Prophet Ibrahim alayhis salam, it is mentioned in the Quran upon the tongue of the Prophet Mohammed so seldom, but we know from the Hadith that the Prophet

00:02:15--> 00:02:38

Ibrahim used it before our Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. The Quran mentions that when the Sahaba were gathered by were surrounded by the absorb by the 10,000 strong around Medina, and they really could not fight 10,000 strong. What did they say? Allah says in the Quran, Allah via a Latina,

00:02:40--> 00:03:26

Latina condyloma NASA in the NASA Gemma confection home for azada. Home imana wakad, who has buena La Jolla and Milwaukee, the people meaning the righteous people are those who, when mankind gathered to attack them, and mankind told them or other people told them, aren't you terrified? Aren't you scared? What was the phrase that came to the Prophet system and the Sahaba has Boone Allahu wa near Milwaukee. This was the DA has been Allahu wa near Milwaukee. And even Abbas narrated that when the Prophet Ibrahim was about to be thrown into that fire, what fire is this? This is the fire of Nimrod. This is the fire that for three days and three nights, it was made hotter and hotter, the

00:03:26--> 00:04:07

fire that they wanted to punish Ibrahim with when they accused him of destroying their idols. And instead of responding back, he mocked them and said no, no must be the other idols who killed the biggest one, they must have been jealous of him. So this young boy Ibrahim, probably 1415 years old, this young boy Ibrahim, I think is set up. And we learned from the traditions. He was the only Muslim on Earth at the time. There was no other Muslim other than him at that time. And he believes in a lot and he rejects the idols. So when these evil people when these mighty kings surround him, and they tell him unless you apologize and come back to our way, we will kill you in this manner.

00:04:07--> 00:04:52

And they torture him for three days. And then they make this fire. And before they throw him in. What does he say? If an Ibis said when Ibrahim was about to be thrown into the fire, he said has spoon Allahu wa near Milwaukee. This is the Dr. Ibrahim and even Abbas said and this was also the death of the Prophet Mohammed Salim when he was surrounded by the eyes up when all of the armies had gathered. This was the drama that came to the tongue of our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. So what is this? And what does it mean? Why is this so powerful, has to be Allah when it really works. The singular has buena is the plural we should all know has v if we are alone, and we said it has to

00:04:52--> 00:04:59

be a law one mo Q. And if we're saying it with a group or a gathering has boonah rather than as below become has been alone

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

One in Milwaukee. And you may add if you want nierman Mola when Emma Nelson, but the the minimum is has to be Allahu wa near Milwaukee. What does this mean? And why is this so powerful? And why was it so effective in the lives of these prophets? The phrase has to be a law means a law is sufficient for me, I don't need anybody else has to be a law, I only need a law. I don't need anyone else. We're near Milwaukee. And what a perfect, what you'll hear means not just protector, but someone who might delegate my affairs to someone who will take charge of what I need to be done has to be a law. I only need a law when near Milwaukee, and what a beautiful protector and Joaquin he is. What is

00:05:52--> 00:06:09

this? Do I mean? Why is it so powerful, when you say has to be a law, you can only say has to be a law when you know who is a law. And then you put your trust in Allah subhana wa tada a heart that doesn't have a man.

00:06:10--> 00:06:54

A heart that is ignorant of a law cannot say has to be a law. When you say it has to be a law, you are affirming the power of a law, the love of a law, the fact that a law knows who you are, what you're doing, how much you need him, when you say has to be a law, you are saying Oh Allah, I recognize that when you decide to do something, nobody can come between you and your will. There is no strength, there is no power other than you. When you say has to be a law. You say I don't care who is against me, if a law is on my side, that's all that I need. So has to be a law is something that is coming from the heart, and it is affirming the power and the protection and the might of

00:06:54--> 00:07:42

Allah subhanho wa Taala when you say has to be a law, you automatically imply who needs anybody other than a law. He who has a law doesn't need anybody else. And he who has everything except for Allah has nothing. He who has Allah does not need anyone else. And he who has everything other than Allah, in reality, he has nothing. So when you say has to be a law, you are affirming the perfection of a law, the love of Allah, the Rama of Allah the concern of a lot. You're saying that if Allah azza wa jal helps me then no one else can ever get in between him and his help. And when you say has to be Allah, you are also affirming your own Eman in a law. Not only that Allah azza wa jal is

00:07:42--> 00:08:28

perfect, but you recognize that imagine the heart of Ibrahim alayhis salaam imagine surrounded by a city, an army, the mightiest King alive is in front of him, threatening him torturing him. He's a 15 year old kid. There's that fire that's been put for three days and three nights. Not a single human being in the world. His own father is on the side of the prosecution. Just imagine not a single soul in the world to help him. Yet what does you know? Allah will protect me has to be a law or a law you are in charge of taking care of these mighty armies. Oh Allah, I turn to you, you will deal with this fire you will take charge of this whole world that has gathered against me has to be a law. I

00:08:28--> 00:09:10

only need a law I don't need anybody else. So what happens when Ibrahim is thrown into that fire? The fire itself becomes a garden for him. A garden a pleasant walk in the park, it becomes beautiful, fragrant green cool. This is what happens when you put your trust in Allah subhana wa Tada. When you say has to be a law, you affirm the power of a law and you affirm over law. I believe in your power. I believe in your mind. I believe that you are the one who is Rahman and Rahim and Semyon Allium and produce and medic or Allah you are the real medic. So when you say has to be a lot you can only say it when it's coming from the depths of your heart. When you understand who is Allah

00:09:10--> 00:09:57

and you believe in Allah subhana wa Tada. And Allah tells us in the Quran, woman yet to what can Allah He for who has boo, whoever truly trust in Allah, Allah will take care of him. Allah azza wa jal is enough for him. Allah says in the Quran, when a tequila hajjaj Allah who Maharaja Zuckerman hydroelectricity, whoever truly trust in Allah, Allah azza wa jal will make an escape route for him will make a passage of exit for him and Allah will provide for him in a manner that he did not expect. Allah will take care of him in a manner that he did not expect. Meaning if you truly put your trust in a law, a law xojo will take care of your calamity will deal with your distress will

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

take charge of defeating your enemies.

00:10:00--> 00:10:42

In ways you don't expect. And so Ibrahim alayhis salaam, the prophet Mohammed sostenere, the Sahaba This is the drought that we say when we are faced with major calamity, major stress when we have major. Here we have the enemies of Islam physically attacking, there is no protection other than a loss protection. So Ibrahim alayhis salam, the prophet Mohammed system has to be a lot when they're working, when they're men what killed means and what a beautiful What a perfect what a majestic Joaquin, what is a Joaquin? Joaquin is somebody in Arabic You call sometimes a lawyer is over keen, right? Even in order to we call the work he is a lawyer. Why? Because when you hire a Joaquin, when

00:10:42--> 00:11:27

you have overkill, what do you do? You sit down, and you let them work, you do the business for you. You hire the best working, you hire the best lawyer. This is in our terms the lawyer and if you really hire a good lawyer, you literally sit down and he'll do the job for you. He'll defend you. He'll make sure that the judge treats you in the manner you deserve. That's what the wiki we call but allies origin isn't just a wiki, he is unlucky. Unlucky means you trust him for everything. You delegate everything to him, that Allah will take care of this. He is the old Joaquin, we're near Milwaukee. And what a beautiful what a majestic. What a powerful will kill he is near my here is a

00:11:27--> 00:12:05

praise of Allah. And it's also an affirmation or a law you are the best working there is no work you like you. And so when you say has to be a law who are near and middle Joaquin, so Allah azza wa jal will become sufficient for you and Allah azza wa jal will do what needs to be done. This is what what you you're basically saying, Oh Allah, I can't do it. I can't do it. Oh Allah, I need you has to be a law who have been working, I put you in charge of a law and you are enough for the job. You are enough to take care of me because you are my Rob, you are the man under him. You are the medic. So our law you are the one to deal with this affair. And this is exactly what happened in the lives

00:12:05--> 00:12:45

of Ibrahim alayhis salam, and also in the life of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam we've all done this story in detail in our Syrah lessons when the Battle of zap took place, and 10,000 strong was surrounding Medina and they were barely 1500 Sahaba there's no way they could physically fight against 10,000 10,000 armed men and they cut off the supplies for one month they cut off the supplies. How long can you last? The people were beginning to eat vegetables? The leaves of the of the trees? They had nothing to eat? they're starving. They haven't had a proper meal for weeks. How long can the siege last? What is going to happen? They cannot fight the Croatia outside

00:12:45--> 00:13:34

with all of their allies. 10,000 strong they cut off all of the food supplies all of the caravans, how long can this go on? So they say has buena la one in Milwaukee and what happens what happens? An army from the heavens comes and 10,000 strong or rerouted fled Helter Skelter overnight, because Allah azza wa jal sent as he said, Would you do the lemtrada he sent an army you did not see it. The wind began to blow the thunderstorm, a tornado in the middle of the desert, and the sound was so severe and hard that they all had to flee. 10,000 strong Can you imagine an army of 10,000 was destroyed without one sword being unsheathed Think about that. Without one sword being unsheathed

00:13:34--> 00:14:16

10,000 strong, simply disappeared overnight. Why? Because has been a law who are near Milwaukee, that is the power of when you trust Allah subhana wa Tada, he'll take care of an entire army, and you don't even have to unsheath your sword. But as long as you show that to what good as long as you recognize, Oh Allah, you will deal with it, you will take care of it has to be alone when you're in Milwaukee. And of course, I have to add here as well that you only do this after you have done everything in your power. The Sahaba built the trench, the Sahaba armed themselves, the Sahaba were ready for battle if need be. They didn't just sit in their houses and say Allah will take care you

00:14:16--> 00:14:57

do everything you can physically and then you say the rest is up to Allah and really Oh Allah, I only need you has to be Allahu when you're in Milwaukee. And also we have a beautiful incident of a Chateau de la and as well, in the story of the slander, the famous story of the slander that took place that when she heard that this slander was happening, what was the one word that comes to her mouth, the one phrase that comes to her mouth has to be a law who an airman will keep. Imagine. I showed the young wife, the young, she's a young lady at the time. She knows enough that the one phrase that comes to her mind, they have spoken about me in this manner. What was the one phrase

00:14:57--> 00:14:59

that immediately came to her mind?

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

SP along with

00:15:02--> 00:15:44

a low will take care of me. And what a beautiful protector he is. And what happened. What happened to protect our Isha, Allah revealed over 20 verses of the Holy Koran that we recite to this day. And our Isha said, I never thought that I was that significant that Allah would reveal or on about To me, this is what I should have said, Who am I she was thinking, of course she is Omaha to me, of course, she is worthy, but she is in her modesty and humility, saying who am I that Allah will reveal or honor about me to be recited to the Day of Judgment. But this is what happens when you put your trust in a law has to be a law, whenever Milwaukee when it comes from your heart, when you

00:15:45--> 00:16:23

assign a law xojo to take care of your deeds, then this is what is going to happen. A law will even reveal Koran for you, as he did for Asia or the Allahu taala. And so, this is the first let us memorize it, let us use it. And the second draft, which is also used a times of distress at times of difficulty, I wanted both these two hours to be because we go through all types of difficulties. Every one of us life is nothing but difficulties in one tragedy after another. This is the reality of life. So the second draft as well is a beautiful draw. And it is the draw of the Prophet Yunus and in his setup, as we all know, as we all know, the prophet Yunus alayhis, salaam, he left his

00:16:23--> 00:16:57

city without getting permission from Allah to leave. And this was a sin for the prophets. The prophets cannot leave the city until Allah tells them the Prophet Yunus gave up he said, My people are bad, they're not accepting call us Let me just go. And it wasn't appropriate for the prophet to do this. And so what happened as we know that he went onto the ship and the people of the ship, they said, somebody has bad luck, he or somebody is bringing this punishment who must be they drew lots and it came to us, and there was a thunderstorm going it was the middle of the night. They said you're the one causing this, this this omen. And of course, we don't believe in omens, these were

00:16:57--> 00:17:34

not Muslims that are doing this. Nonetheless, they said you're the cause of this bad luck. We need to get rid of you. And so in the middle of a dark and stormy night in the middle of the ocean, when the thunder is going in, the rain is pouring complete darkness. They pick Yunus at his salon, and they fling him over the ocean. Just think about that. If any of you have ever been in the middle of the seas, how terrifying it is, even on a beautiful day, if you fall into that ocean. Imagine in the middle of the night, when the waves are coming and the thunder and the and the rain and they throw him into the middle of that darkness and he plunges and plunges and plunges. And as you all know,

00:17:34--> 00:18:22

then Allah azza wa jal causes official whale to swallow him and that's why the Quran calls him as unknown, the unknown unknown in the Quran, humans will the one of the whale. So Uranus is called the Companion of the whale, and the will take some deep, deep deep down the depths of the sea. Imagine brothers and sisters will lie These are stories that we know happen since the Koran we believe in them. Imagine being the Prophet universe. Imagine that claustrophobia, that stench, not able to breathe completely blind in the depths of the ocean. And Allah azza wa jal says, What did he do? He realized he made a mistake. He realized he made a mistake. So what Allah says when Phil zoodle Matt,

00:18:22--> 00:19:07

he called out in the depths of the darkness, while lahave how much darkness was there? The darkness of the night, the darkness of the depths of the ocean, the darkness of the inner chambers of the whale, darkness over darkness over darkness, complete and pitch darkness. Can you imagine the terror the fear that any one of us might have had we would have died simply have a heart attack would have died of fear. But you'll notice it his Sam, he realized I need a loss of vision. And so what did he do? Why not follow Matt? Allah Allah illa Anta su panikkar? In nicklin terminal follow me from the depths of the ocean, he calls out La Ilaha, Illa and subhanak or LA there is nobody worthy of being

00:19:07--> 00:19:51

praised, worthy of being worshipped worthy of being glorified, other than you super Hannukah Exalted are You above anything? Meaning what? Some people who don't have strong faith, they blame a law for their calamities and tragedies. They say this is because of a law this because of God, why is God punishing us? Why is God doing this to me? And this is a common phrase we hear, I'm a good person, why is God doing this to me? the holder of a syllable we do not speak like this. We do not accuse a lot of any injustice or evil. So So Hanukkah here means Exalted are You Oh Allah, you are only worthy of praise. You are not worthy of any criticism. Subhana Exalted are You some Hanukkah means

00:19:51--> 00:19:59

we negate anything negative. It's a double negative, we negate anything negative and hamdulillah we praise for a positive Alhamdulillah

00:20:00--> 00:20:47

loss perfection sapan a law is the negation of a loss imperfection and hamdulillah is a lost perfection. A law is worthy of being praised because of his names and attributes because of who he is sapan Allah, Allah azza wa jal is being we negate any negative. So for example, when Allah says, Allah has not taken a son, super Hannah who he should be negated from having a son Subhana, who is too exalted to have a son, to holy to have a son. Allah says, they took false gods besides Him, super Hannah, who all glory be to Him, He doesn't deserve false gods being ascribed to him. So subhanak a year implies Oh Allah, you are not worthy of any criticism you're only worthy of worship,

00:20:48--> 00:21:32

in the consuming of volume in I was the one who made a mistake. I was the one who fell into a sin. I was the one who transgressed in nikken to mean Avada mean, and therefore, dear brothers and sisters, when a person says this phrase La ilaha illa Anta subhanak in the consuming of volume him, we he affirms for himself that I have fallen short, it was my mistake and error. And if this is the Prophet Yunus saying, he made a mistake, then where do we stand in front of Allah subhanho wa Taala. If a prophet of Allah is saying, I made a mistake, it was my mistake. What is the mistake here, of course, all of us make mistakes, we fall into sins, we fall into things that are wrong, we don't do

00:21:32--> 00:22:21

the YG. But we don't thank Allah as much as we should thank him. All of this is a type of loan. And so he affirmed a loss perfection. He sought Allah's forgiveness, and he acknowledged his own mistakes. So he combined between tauheed La ilaha illAllah and negating anything negative subhanak and then affirming or describing imperfection to himself, and this is the perfection of repentance. You say Allah, you are perfect, I am imperfect, you are holy, I am sinful. You are the ILA and the God and I am the mirboo and the abbot, I am the one who is under your control. So when you affirm a laws, perfection, and your own imperfection, you are being humble, and humility is the essence of

00:22:21--> 00:23:08

worship. Humility is the essence of worship, like we bow our heads down in such the way we take our most noble organ, our most respected part of the body, and that is the head and we lower it into the dirt or law you are worthy of this humility, you are worthy of this subservience You are worthy of this a body and that will raise our ranks in this world and the next so when we say la ilaha illa, Anta subhanak in the consuming of volume in, we are affirming Allah is perfect, and we are acknowledging, I am imperfect. And when we do this, Allah shows His perfection to us. The opposite of this is a police. The opposite of this is a police who is too arrogant to recognize and he says I

00:23:08--> 00:23:47

am better. I am the one who deserves this. This is a police when Adam was he was told to Prostrate to Adam, what did you say I am the one. So the opposite of this is arrogance. And when you're arrogant, you will not get anything. When you're humble in front of Allah. This is when Allah subhana wa tada will bless you. And therefore what happened with Eunice la his Salaam, from the depths of the darkness, the will comes all the way to the top at the crack of dawn at the break of dawn, the sun is shining now. And the whale goes all the way to the shore and spits them out onto the onto the shore. And so Allah azza wa jal says in the Quran fernet j now hoomin elkem. We were

00:23:47--> 00:24:11

the ones who saved him from his distress, and then listen to this phrase and memorize his brothers and sisters. It is one of the most optimistic phrases in the Koran, what can leka noon, meaning and in this manner, when the movement says La ilaha illa Allah Subhana kinnikuman Avada mean, in this manner, we shall save all of those who are in distress.

00:24:12--> 00:24:47

All of those who believe all of those who turned to me, we will save all of them. So this drop is said whenever you are distressed, Yunus was distressed because of the problems of the whale the problems of the we are distressed because of other problems, much less trivial than yours. But nonetheless, they are big for us. family problems, financial problems, our bosses giving us an attitude. We're worried about our job, our family issues, these are our lumads these are our darknesses so when we're surrounded by these darknesses what do we say?

00:24:49--> 00:24:59

the interest of Hanukkah in the terminal volume in this should be our all the time and our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in a hadith in mustard

00:25:00--> 00:25:46

Remember that the drama of the noon meaning the drama of the one of the will, that he cried out with when he was in the stomach of the whale was the ilaha illa Anta su panic in the con two minute volume in and then our Prophet system said no Muslim ever says this do I accept that Allah will answer him. No Muslim ever says this do I accept that Allah will answer him. So these are the two as brothers and sisters memorize them make them a daily part of your rituals has to be a law one in Milwaukee and ilaha illa Anta subhanak in equal to middle volume in barakallahu autoconfig Khurana they want to find out where they may see him when it was declared Hakeem or otomatis marone was

00:25:46--> 00:25:51

tough for a lot of the muddy water. What he said and Muslim requirement for cellfood overhaul of a food or Rahim

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

Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Hua hadn't had a summer the lead in Amira, mula, mula Hakuna had, what I do.

00:26:10--> 00:26:47

But the brothers and sisters in Islam, we are all painfully aware of the tragedy that took place two days ago. And it is difficult to talk about this tragedy. Without emotions rising. We are all painfully aware of the murder of three of our young, innocent men and women. And so much can be said. But well, I just want to mention a few simple points that we can all benefit from. First and foremost, tragedies and harms and problems are indeed a part of this life. And a lot tests us with various trials and tribulations and

00:26:48--> 00:26:49

the parents of

00:26:52--> 00:27:11

the parents of those young men and women have been tested in a manner that we can only begin to imagine. And we ask Allah subhana wa tada to make their affairs easy for them. But as we look at this tragedy, there's no doubt that we see as well the wisdom of Allah subhanho wa Taala. As we look at this tragedy,

00:27:13--> 00:27:23

it is as if Allah subhana wa tada chose these people to be role models even in their death. It is as if Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:27:24--> 00:28:10

carved out a life for them. That is a life that we can only be jealous of, even though they are half or one third of our age, that the good that they have done, and the crave and the Baraka that has come from their lives, and the love that the community had for them while they were still alive, much less when they are dead. It speaks volumes about their class and their taqwa and their Eman, nasty Wonka daddy when I was a gavel, I had it speaks volumes of their real sincerity. The fact of the matter, my dear brothers and sisters, is that Allah chose them because they were so righteous in sha Allah, and Allah bless their families, because Allah wanted to raise their ranks in this world

00:28:10--> 00:28:52

and in the next, because our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said in Allah tala either accommodated our home, that when Allah loves a person, he tests them. So this family has been tested, both of the families have been tested, the communities have been tested. And all of us were simply witnessing we are not being tested the way they have been tested. We're simply looking on and spectators to what is going on. But Subhanallah, the galvanization of the American Muslim community. This could have been any one of us, this could have been any one of our children. We all are worried about the future of our community in this land. We're worried about the rhetoric that people are

00:28:52--> 00:29:36

saying, Yes, we do not know exactly what happened in this particular case. But still, it seems to be what it seems to be very clear to us. And regardless of the specifics, for sure. The rhetoric that is we're hearing from many segments of this society are very dangerous. And perhaps incidents like these, perhaps Allah Xhosa is using them to really be martyrs Shaheed so that the people realize that we cannot continue with this rhetoric and the spiteful speech, and so kandalama dear brothers and sisters, one of the things that really amazed me was that every now that I have, I don't know the family personally, but many of my friends are personal family friends of this couple. We also

00:29:36--> 00:29:59

had some of our members here in Memphis, go to attend the janazah as well. And we have seen their interviews online. It is amazing the amount of sober and the amount of patience that is demonstrated from this family. And I wonder when I look at this, where did that total be awarded that that that training come from?

00:30:00--> 00:30:45

that a young lady, a young man, the brothers and sisters, they have so much fortitude so much courage, so much a man that the brother says on the TV interview that don't think that we are sad he is speaking to MSNBC, a non Muslim interview says don't think we are sad, we are happy, we are rejoicing that our Lord has chosen my family to become martyrs. What type of a man is this? where a young man this Iman is coming out from him? And one wonders Subhana Allah he is born and raised in this land. What has happened in his life? That is a man is so strong. And if this is his case, how about the boy and the girl that and the sister How about the three of them? So paddler brothers and

00:30:45--> 00:31:13

sisters, these three let their tragedy not be in vain. Let us do a number of things. First and foremost, most importantly, right now make dua for them and for their fathers and mothers and sisters and brothers, may Allah azza wa jal grant them the peace and the Sakina May Allah azza wa jal accept their Shahada May Allah azza wa jal give subud and tofik and Eman to the family members of those that are left behind. This is the first thing we need to do make to offer them. Secondly,

00:31:14--> 00:31:52

we need to support their legacies. And there's many funds raisings going on and this is not the time to get into that, but their families, this young man bleah, he was training, as you know, to become a dentist and he was going to go to Syria and the refugee camps. He had gone last year with his fiance he had gone last year, they had helped the refugees and orphans with his wife, now they're going to go again. And they were going to get 10 doctors, they're going to sponsor 10 doctors to go, I mean, we'll let you think about this a 21 year old man, 21 years old, most of us have not gone and volunteered in a refugee camp. Most of us have not spent anything of this nature. And here is a man

00:31:52--> 00:32:33

is about to get married, and he wants to save up to get married and he says spends that money to go help refugees. What like, where do these people like this come from, but like this person says, If Allah azza wa jal made his life to become a role model for us, and then took it so that he is a leader, even in death as he was a leader in life. Few people can claim this few people can claim to become leaders even in death. And it is quite clear that this was one of those people that Allah subhana wa tada chose. So the second thing we can do is to support their legacy. And the third thing is to ask ourselves, why did Allah choose them? And how did they get to this respect and legacy, the

00:32:33--> 00:33:19

outpouring of love and emotion, this was perhaps the largest janazah, or one of the largest Genesis that America has seen 7000 people overnight, from around the country are coming in becomes a mainstream news media event, CNN, Ms. Ms. mbcr, reporting the janaza just because of the numbers 7000 people, why, why this is what happens when you dedicate your life to Allah, we see the results in this world before the next. This is the love written for this world. What do you think of the next one, we're waiting for them, if this much respect in this world, and they're barely a fraction of my age and your age, think then what about in the next life. So we need to follow that legacy.

00:33:19--> 00:34:00

And understand the best way to gain a lot of zoologist blessing is to be on his path to be as loving as caring, as sincere, as merciful, as dedicated to these positive causes. This is what we need to do. And there is no doubt as I said that it is because of that in shallow data that so much love the fact of the matter, anybody this could have happened to anybody, it could have happened to people unknown never seen in the masjid. And the reaction would not have been except a fraction of what it is. But Allah chose specific people, and allows the wizard wanted to demonstrate to us and to the rest of the people. This is the reality. So we need to learn from that. And we need to also start

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

our own legacies, will I and you get even a fraction of that legacy that they already have for their lives? Will we be able to leave behind the same amount of love the same amount of respect and honor the same amount of lost blessings in the next life? This is something we all need to think about. And then lastly, my dear brothers and sisters, indeed, we don't know exactly why this tragedy took place yet we're still finding out nonetheless, we all need to be extra vigilant, vigilant and monitor our situation. There has been a number of incidents going on. A girl was followed to her car in one city and threatened by a gun and there is a fire in one mosque. We don't know exactly the

00:34:40--> 00:34:59

details yet. So I don't want to mention anything but it might have been an arson somewhere else in this country. Things are changing. And there's only one way really that we are going to have the narrative back to the way it was. And that is if each and every one of us stands up against prejudice and lives the lives

00:35:00--> 00:35:44

Use of the Prophet Mohammed Hassan Suna following his Sunnah when the people know who we are, and respect us, we don't have the luxury of shoving our heads in the sand anymore. We don't have the luxury of changing our names and pretending we're not Muslim. Each and every one of us these people were killed in their houses, the man entered the door and shot them executions out in the head in their houses. We don't have the luxury of running away. We need to stand up and understand. We need to earn respect, earn the love of the people around us. There are campaigns to vilify us to smear us, we need to do the opposite. We cannot fight fire with fire over here. We have to demonstrate the

00:35:44--> 00:36:27

Rama, the mercy of Islam, the love the compassion of Islam, we need to do like those three, that even mainstream news media are talking about how good they were, how righteous they were. People that typically smear Islam when it came to these three, even they could not spear them. What does that demonstrate? You want to win over the love and the respect you need to live the life of the Prophet Mohammed Salah be kind and merciful, go and help the orphans help the Syrian refugees do something in your locality so that the people understand this is who we are. And slowly but surely, when we start changing this message when the rhetoric cannot face our actions, actions speak louder

00:36:27--> 00:37:09

than words, then insha Allah to Allah, this will abate and die down I am optimistic insha Allah, but we don't want these debts to be in vain. And let us all learn a lesson. that death is around the corner. These three the band got married six weeks ago, brothers and sisters six weeks ago. Can you imagine? They're still memorabilia of the weddings in their houses, all of this stuff and they're still there. Can you imagine? The sister said we just celebrated their wedding and now we're doing their and their, their their funeral? This is the reality of life. Can anybody here guarantee when they will die? how long they will live to these three martial arts article? Are they prepared? They

00:37:09--> 00:37:47

didn't think they're going to come this end this soon, but they prepared and Allah bless them. So let each and every one of us also prepared for that day it will come to us inevitably let us prepare for that day. And let us ask ourselves, what is the legacy that I have left behind and what is the legacy you have left behind before the Angel of Death comes along in the dying for a mineral? aloha? mulata Rafi has no Museum in Lahore Fatah wa Hammond Illa for Raja wala Jain and in la cabeza de la Ilaha. feta when I see it on Illa yourself de Allahumma fildena what is one in a linear Saba hoonah v man one Latisha kuruvilla peruvianus Isla Linda Dena Amano robina in Nakuru for Rahim Allah Hama
