00:00:35--> 00:01:03

I was pondering over a verse in Surah Yunus where Musa alayhis salam, when his people are trapped, and when they think that there is no hope. He has a very powerful verse here and it really it struck me and it caused me to go down bit of a thought process. Most I said to his people when they lost all hope, most I said that he or call me or my people in quantum momentum Billahi firea heater work Curlew enquanto Muslimeen

00:01:04--> 00:01:54

all my people, if you have a man in Allah, then put your Tawakkol in him. If you are Muslims, it's such a powerful phrasing that your Eman and your Islam is linked to your Tawakkol and this is said at a time when founders behind them the Red Sea is in front of them. They think Allah said is all gone they're the lowest of the low and Musa comes and says if you have a man, where is your Tawakkol if you have Islam show me that our cool and this caused me to think about so many other verses in the Quran, where Allah subhana wa Taala directly links a man in him with the concept of Tawakkol like it is intrinsically linked. You cannot have Eman, real Eman except that it will be manifested

00:01:54--> 00:02:37

in Tawakkol. For example, the very first verses of Surah Talon fall that in normal mode MoonJune Alladhina dedicata La Jolla the global way there truly at Allah Maya to Satomi mana and then how does it end? While Airbnb tower karoon Enamul me known the believers are only those there's exclusivity here, you cannot be a believer unless these characteristics apply in normal mode Menon and then Allah lists two or three things. And then he says and they put their Tawakkol in Allah and of course it is very clear in the Quran. Why Allah He Philea towork Khalil me known for Etowah Khalil mutawa ketone both are mentioned if you have Eman you will put your Tawakkol in Allah subhana

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

wa taala, the concept of Tawakkol there have been many hot buzz many lectures about this. And we should always remind ourselves of this reality in the famous Hadith in Sahih, Bahati the regular dose of the Prophet sallallahu I sent him before going to sleep, he would say that Allahumma laka Islam to a beaker, amen to La katawa cult, once again this direct connotation. Yeah Rob, I believe in you. And I submit to you and have to call in you look Eman, Islam Tawakkol literally put together in one phrase just like what the Prophet Musa Eman, Islam Tawakkol all put together but why? Why is Tawakkol so important that it is directly linked to a man in Allah such that Musa is saying In

00:03:21--> 00:04:02

Kuntum Amen Tommy life our crew, if you believe in Allah, so rhetorical, you know, as they believe it's a rhetorical right. They know they believe he knows they believe he is saying if you have Eman, show me that our cool. Why is it so intrinsically linked, if you look at the Quran, the reason also becomes clear. And that is the following that the reality of telecoil it stems from a man in Allah and the methodology of Tawakkol. It stems from Eman in the shadow of Allah. So the Hakeem of Tawakkol the reality of Tawakkol you don't need to have a lot of knowledge of the Quran and Sunnah. If you know who is Allah, you will have to call but how do you do to a call, you need to have some

00:04:02--> 00:04:43

knowledge of the Sharia. Right? And I'm going to get to this point, as I'm saying the reality of Tawakkol How can you cater to a call it is linked to Yvonne why and how? Because if you know who Allah is, then automatically to what good will come from that. And that's why in the Quran in multiple verses, Allah links the concept of Tawakkol to Him and His names and his attributes directly. If you know who is Allah automatically will have to call in him. So for example, Allah says in the Quran, all who are up de la ilaha illa who are later worketh he is my Rob La Ilaha illa Allah Tawakkol in him, notice how clear also in the other verse, what our color Alhaj Allah de la

00:04:43--> 00:04:59

jolla moot another name of Allah al Hey, put your Tawakkol in Alhaj the one who never dies also in the Quran, whatever color fatawa Kal el Aziza Rahim put you to work could enter Aziz or Rahim Allah the raka Hina Taku the one who sees you and the one who sees one

00:05:00--> 00:05:46

You're standing and praying and the one who knows everything. So the concept of Who is Allah that Allah is Allah Hey, Allah is Allah Aziz? Allah is Rahim in Surah Tabarak Allah azza wa jal says Kulu Romano mnb why they hit our kalna? Once again, the notion of Allah's names and Allah's attributes being linked to the to what could and Allah why and how? Because if you know that Allah is Allah Aziz, Allah is Alka we, Allah is a Semia if you know that Allah azza wa jal is Rahmani Raheem. When you recognize Who is Allah, automatically, none of them a hook has what Allah has. None of them are who has the control the knowledge, the power, so then how can your heart go and be attached to a

00:05:46--> 00:06:27

hook when it is Allah? Who is the robbed Allah? Who is the Illa? Allah? Who is the Aziz Allah? Who is the Hey, every other being is not alive? They're going to die? What's our collateral? Hajela de la jolla mood? How can you put your Tawakkol in a mahalo that is going to die, whatever cuz Alhaj Allah de la jolla mood so when you know who is Allah, automatically, your heart will have to work cool in him because only he has the characteristics of the one whom you put your trust in. And that's why Allah azza wa jal, one of His Names is a lower keel, which means the one you do talk call L, the one you do Tawakkol he is a lower kill. That's one of the names of Allah Nam and Mola when

00:06:27--> 00:07:03

Emma Nasi, there is no Joaquin, other than Allah subhanho wa taala. So as I said, a knowledge of Allah, when you understand the names and attributes of Allah, automatically, it's like, I mean, giving you a simple example of this dunya. And of course, to Allah belongs the most perfect example. I'm not trying to compare. But imagine that there is a I mean, just imagine a scenario where I don't know somebody is drowning. You have a qualified swimmer, he knows how to save and you have a child, who do you think is going to save this person who do these going to jump in and save the qualified swimmer? The Olympic gold medal, you put your your image not in mantras, but a non Muslim trust, you

00:07:03--> 00:07:49

get my point? What did I do my third idea, you get my point here when you understand Allah is infinite in His podra in his summer, in his Rama in his Goolwa in his Hyatt, Allah azza wa jal, Who is Allah, how can your taco not go to him? So that is why the concept of Tawakkol is directly linked to Eman and if you don't have a man, then you will not have to work cool. So not having to work cool is not just a week a man, to be honest, it is a lack of a man. And that's why it is so intrinsically linked. If you have a man, where's your Tawakkol? If you have Islam, show me your Tawakkol. So I said the reality of Tawakkol comes from al Qaeda from EMA as for the Haqiqa, or as for the

00:07:49--> 00:08:28

methodology of our call this we need to know the shadow era. Why? Because it is possible theologically if we were to not know the shadow, it is possible still believing in Allah unfolding understanding Allah to say okay to what cool means Allah will take care of me and I do nothing. If somebody says this, after you the wise his belief in Allah is still strong, but his knowledge of the Shetty is weak. Right. It's not affecting his Eman and Allah azza wa jal if he thinks that you know what, I'm just gonna sit back and Allah will do everything. That's how he could do the work good. But we know from the sherry, this is not to our knowledge of the sherry tells us when we know the

00:08:28--> 00:09:15

Syrah of the prophets of Allah is no when we studied the Hadith and the sooner then we realize that the methodology of Tawakkol is different than what I have just given us an example. And that methodology is that Tawakkol has nothing to do with the outer limbs. It is only in the heart to what cool is not shown in your outer actions. It is only manifested in your Eman. You do everything as if there is no Tawakkol but your heart does everything as if there's nothing but our core. This is the perfection of our Eman our outer body, our methodologies, how we want to get somewhere what we do to get to our goal, it is as if there is no codon as if that is all in our hands but in our hearts are

00:09:15--> 00:09:54

to what good is not in the action or to what good is not in the effort. Our code is in Allah subhanho wa Taala and this is understood the famous you all know the Bedouin Yasser Allah should I leave my camel or should I tie my camel or should I put my Tawakkol in Allah the same dichotomy, right? It's understood because it is possible it would not be against theoretically after either. If we were taught, no, no, you should leave it and Allah will take care because Allah is Allah question for you. But our Sharia has come in every prophet has shown and the entire Quran has demonstrated and the CRO of every newbie and Rasul especially our Prophet sallallahu Sallam has shown that the

00:09:54--> 00:10:00

reality of Tawakkol does not affect our actions. And this is the reality of Musa when

00:10:00--> 00:10:38

He is running away from Freetown and he's taking precautions or promises them in the Hegira. So many things he's taking the story of the hero, you all know and yet when he is in the hall, and when a worker says to him, they might catch us. That's when he says Allah azza wa jal will take care of us. The work cool is coming from the heart. The actions are there hiding in the cave, three days, that cave is logistically located right, making sure the food is coming, covering the tracks hiring a trustworthy guide every aspect of the hockey heart of this world and how it operates. But then the heart is attached to Allah subhanho wa Taala This is the reality of Tawakkol it does not affect our

00:10:38--> 00:11:21

actions, it only affects the world. And that's what we learned in the Hadith the famous editor did me the our Prophet sallallahu sallam said, if you were to put your to what Quran Allah, the way that Allah deserves that you put Tawakkol in him, he would give you your risk, like he provides the birds their risk. Then he gave the beautiful example. They leave their nests early in the morning hungry, and they have to cook and they come back in the evening with their stomachs full. Our scholars have commented This is the perfect analogy. The birds that work cool was demonstrated not in them sitting in their nests and thinking that grain is going to fall on them. No, they leave their nests every

00:11:21--> 00:12:00

morning. This is a biological fact. They don't know where they're going to get their grain from. They have no idea but they leave early in the morning because they need to put in the effort. They don't oversleep until 10pm or 10am or whatever they leave early at budget as you know, that's the birds start chirping around dawn and they're flying around all day long looking for the risk. So they put in the effort and then at the end what happens they come back to their nests full This is the reality of Tawakkol we put in the effort but our hearts are attached to Allah subhana wa Tada final point because Tawakkol is linked to Eman. So when we have to work cool and when it is

00:12:00--> 00:12:43

manifested in our culture, Allah Subhana Allah to Allah loves this in Allah hibel matawa Killeen Allah loves this because you have demonstrated to Allah What have you demonstrated that you have Eman? When your club is much more in when your club is completely resigned? That means you assign your heart to Allah you will leave your affair to Allah when Allah sees that what cool in you inside of you. Then Allah loves this because you have demonstrated you have Eman and when Allah azza wa jal loves you what is going to happen? WOMAN Yeah Tawakkol Allah He for who has whoo hoo right? Whoever puts us to work could and Allah Allah will take care of him because Allah azza wa jal loves that

00:12:43--> 00:13:17

person. So it is a loop here when you have a man it will demonstrate to work cool, when you have to work on Allah azza wa jal will give you what you want. So in sha Allah, the more we learn about Allah, His names and attributes, the more we think and ponder about the reality of Allah azza wa jal and his smell SIFAT and also, of course, other I didn't want to go there but to what could and other are intrinsically linked as well because that's the reality of belief in a lot then it will be manifested in Allah's blessings on us and in Allah taking care of us. May Allah subhana wa taala. Grant us Eman and the class and attain and Tawakkol and may Allah subhanaw taala allow us to taste
