Channel: Yasir Qadhi
Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discusses a dua that is recited by the righteous in times of distress and patience.
This verse was recited by the magicians at the time of standing at the face of imminent torture and death in the time of Firaun.
“رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَتَوَفَّنَا مُسْلِمِينَ”
“Our Lord, pour upon us patience and let us die as Muslims [in submission to You].”
[Surah Al-A’raf ,Verse 126]
Patience is the main mechanism we use to cope with the troubles of this world. Allah will help with two mechanisms – patience and salaah.
“Our Lord, pour upon us patience and plant firmly our feet and give us victory over the disbelieving people.”
[Surah Al Baqarah – verse 250]
This dua was recited when the mighty army of Jalooth was approaching the Muslims.
Milan hamdu Lillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while the Adi he will be here woman Wella hammerberg. Today's drop from the Quran is actually from two places in the Quran, the first half of it is the same. And the second half of both of these are slightly different. We begin with students that are off verse 126. The door is as follows what I've been afraid either you know sabalan what Tijuana Muslim in the context of this do I translate says Oh Allah, grant us patience and allow us to die as Muslims. The context of this when the magician's of fit around, when they saw the miracle of the staff, and they saw the miracle of Musa alayhis salam and they embraced Islam immediately
they embrace system although I'm unavailable are the mean frown said I will execute You betrayed me around said I will crucify you on the palms of date trees, and I will torture you to death. And these magicians who now believe so firmly in a law, they were facing death and they were facing torture, so they said I've been afraid Eileen Sabra make us patient to Allah make us patient about what we're about to face. What what phenom was the mean, and allow us to die as Muslims. The second drop this surah baqarah verse 250 surah baqarah verse 250. And in the first half is the same robina for Elena sobre over LA, fortify us with patience with a bit akademin and make our feet firm one so
now I will omit caffeine and help us against those who have rejected you this door. I was said when the army of ollut and amongst them was though David was in that army, David and Goliath is the famous battle of David and Goliath and thought it was the king of David. And on the other side was john Ruth, which is Goliath. So when they saw the mighty army, and they were outnumbered, and they didn't have the weapons, they didn't have the manpower. So they're outnumbered they're outmaneuvered, but they need to win. So what do I do they say, all do Robin on a Friday now sobre our law give us patience against this army give us patience to win over with a bit akademin make our
feet firm one so not an omen caffine and help us against those who have rejected you. Our lecture today is going to be about the first half would have been a phrase Eileen sabara once again, very simple to add or abandon a phrase either in October or forwards. And it's a very powerful tool. That is said by the righteous in times of distress. The Magician's of phenomenon are facing a very gruesome death torture by death, they're going to die by torture. The army of Fallujah thinks it's gonna die. They don't know what's going to happen. Both of them are righteous people and a lot quotes there. There have been a phrase Eileen l sobre. O our Lord pour upon us actually it's a very
powerful dry because of this doesn't just mean give a foot It literally means to pour down. So we are saying Oh Allah, don't just give me patience. surround me with patience allow patients to come directly from you after this Idina pour all of that patience not even into us, but around us on into us how to open a fridge either in a Sabra. So this is one of the most powerful for us to say, when we require patience, when do we require patience throughout our lives, our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said, or sobre la Suleiman being patient it is the head of a man and by head here it means is the crux is the pinnacle. If you're patient, you have a man and if you are not patient, you don't
have a man. And that is why in over 50 verses in the Quran, Allah praises patience, and I've given many helpers about patience and the concept of patience. But all that we need to know for our brief lecture today. Patience is one of the main mechanisms that we use to cope with the problems of this world. And we all have problems of this world. What do we do when finances are an issue? When human relations become problematic? When we're full of anxieties, grief, worry, what do we do? Allah says, was there any no the subsidy was Salah, get the help of a law through two things. Allah will help you through two mechanisms. Number one, a suburb and number two, and that is prayer. And of course,
especially in this month, we have to understand what to suffer because the Ramadan is called the month of
Patience and fasting, our Prophet systems that whoever perfects the fast or slow mo nice food or sober, fasting is half of patience. So this is the month of patience and we are learning patience. So we should learn to have patience as well. And of course patience is something that raises our ranks in this world and the next leadership is given to those who are patient, respect and honor comes with those who are patient. Allah says in the Quran regarding the Bani Israel, even those who were tortured those who were exiled from Egypt, they wandered for 40 years lost in that land, then Allah bless them to have their own peace and security. And what does the law say? What Talmud
Kadima, tropical Prusiner, Allah Bani Israel Isla de Moussa baru because the children of Israel were patient, because the children of Israel were patient, we then fulfilled our promise to them, and we gave them what we had what had been destined for them. And Allah says also, for the children of Israel, Allah says, What do you mean home imitation? Yeah, do wanna be emelina masaharu we made from amongst them leaders in who were rightly guided because of our way when they showed their patience, the mouse sabado ignore em says the only way to become a true leader is through patience. And this isn't even a religious matter. Even if you don't have any religion, or you're from another religion.
Genuine leadership comes when you put in the struggle, you put in the patience, look at any global leader, regardless of faith, whether it is Mahatma Gandhi, whether it is Nelson Mandela, it doesn't matter whether it is MLK, whoever it is, how did they get to that level of respect of humanity? They were patient Lamar Sabo. These are the people Allah says, Well, of course Allah talking about the profits, but the concept is the same, that when they were patient, they were given the fruits of their reward. And of course, if this world is given to those who are patients, then what do you think of the next world? Allah says in the Koran that the the the wives, the children, the parents
of the righteous will be all with them in general and the angels one mela eager to Yaga Haruna de Min coolibah from every single door, the angels are going to come to greet them. What will the angels say the first time they see the believers in Jenna Sarah Mona la comme Bhima sadara Tom, because you were patient, set them on Aleykum you were patient in this world now you will get this item of Allah and TAO to set up which is gender. So the number one cause in this verse of gender is because of patience. Salam aleikum. Bhima so bottom because you demonstrated patience, then you will get that reward from Allah subhana wa Tada. And in these days, the climate of Islamophobia, the
climate of hatred, of racism of Sufism of xenophobia, we really need to understand those verses that demonstrate for us patience, Allah says in the Quran, will not be run either day to Muna, we are going to be patient in spite of all of your harassment to us. This is in the climate of Islamophobia. Whether or not spilled on the tuna, you can irritate us as much as you want, we will show you back our patients and patients therefore, what exactly is it It means to act in a sensible and Islamic manner it means to not act rationally, to not act emotionally. Patience is difficult, because it is the controlling of one's actions. It is the controlling of one's tongues impatient is
to let go to act rationally to act emotionally and patience means you only say what pleases Allah and you act in a manner that is pleasing to Allah subhanho wa Taala. The final point for today's brief Hata how then do we gain patience? How do we get to this level of patience? And there's a very beautiful Hadith I've said it many times. It's a very interesting Heidi and it links directly to our two verses for today. Our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam I forgot to mention obviously Allah directly tells him to be patient. This is something interesting. It's a direct command to our Rasulullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam that he is being commanded forcibly to come out sobre una
azumino Rasul Allah rasulillah. Be patient, like the mighty messengers were patient, he is being told by Allah and Allah says to him, one of the first revelations was to build sovereign Jimmy to be patient to beautiful patience. This is one of the earliest revelation he's being told to be patient. How does one acquire patience? miraculously, my dear brothers and sisters, miraculously, one acquires patience simply by desiring it simple as that, if only money were so easy, patience is given to those who want it. It's as simple as that. You want patience, you will get it. Can you imagine anything else of this world that you desire? And you get it? How do we know this? From the
Hadith of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam woman Yato sub baru use of beautiful law.
yo sup BB u sub beautiful law, whoever wants to be patient, Allah will give him that patience. That's all that is required. You just have to have the knee. Yeah, I want to be patient. But of course with the new year comes the da robina afraid it now sobre that de armas calm as well, if you really want it, then it has to come and SubhanAllah. These do as they were, they were mentioned on the tongues of the people who are going to be killed by Fred Allen, who are facing the army of Goliath. And how about us, we have to be patient at our children and they're a nuisance and irritation. We have to be patient at the petty politics of our office, we have to be patient at the
human relations there is no fit around going to torture us to death like that. There is no great army of Goliath our patients and battle is so less compared to theirs. What then do you think the effect of this drug is going to be? So memorize this too, and frequently say it because it was said by the righteous before us and Allah felt it to be worthy to be quoted in the Quran. He quoted what they said and he taught it to us as well. But I've been afraid of it now. sobre o Allah pour upon us the support that we need. So we make this constantly and we ask Allah subhana wa tada for Slobodan jameelah and we will not shall continue tomorrow was set on wanting to La Habra castle
