My dear brothers and sisters.
Again, we have a very short amount of time for yamo jamara which is supposed to be brief, concise, and to the point to give you something a benefit baby manita Anna on this day, which is the most blessed of days, our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said that the best day the sun raises is that they have Yamato Ma, the day of Friday. This is the day where Adam and Eve was created, placed in the garden exited from it and the Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said that the day of Juma that they have the AMA excuse me that the day of piano will not begin except but on a Friday. So this is a day that we should all reflect, reflect. Now
when we look at the confusion that's going on around the world right now, craziness, confusion everywhere, nobody knows what's going on anywhere. There is difference of opinion about every matter under the sun. And this includes within the umbrella of Mohammed sallallahu alayhi wa sallam were confused, trust me, we are so confused. We were confused before the media got involved in the matters. And now they've only doubled and tripled our confusion, unfortunately. And that's a sad thing that the media affects what we believe or what we think, at all. Because the only truth you will ever get from the media is the date and the time. That's it. And sometimes they don't even get
that right. We need to realize as Muslims, what do we need
to survive in this world? amidst all of this Islamophobia, amidst all of this confusion, amidst all of this aggression, blatant aggression towards Islam,
all of this is paramount. It's of paramount importance that we understand what do we need? What do I need? What do I mean? And what why it's quite simple. This Ummah needs only two things to survive. These two things we have had them for 1400 years. They have not changed. They have remained constant. They are complete. They are perfect. They are applicable for every situation. They're applicable for every time they are applicable for every country, for every city for every home. These two things are our salvation. And these two things, abandoning them, forgiving them, confusing them has been and will continue to be our destruction. Allah azza wa jal jhalawar, Allah Subhana
whom said 1400 years ago, Al Yama Atmel to Lacan, Dino come
to la comida Mati hora de todo como Islam, Medina.
Allah said this 1400 years ago, brothers and sisters, that this day on the day of arafah, which we witnessed very short time ago,
during the farewell pilgrimage of our Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam, he said al Yama at mal to Lacan de nukem, Allah said about this religion, this Deen al Islam as was practiced by Mohammed salah and he was setting them Sallam and those who followed him, his companions and those who follow them until the day of judgment. Allah said that this Deen was commanded perfect
Perfect, you cannot get from perfection anything else once something is perfect, nothing needs to be added to enhance it. once something is perfect, nothing can be taken away from it except that it will destroy that perfection will lie our beam is perfect. It is complete. Allah said I completed it. That means it is comprehensive. It is for every time and every place. Just because it was revealed 1400 years ago, does not mean that it is not applicable in 2014. Because to say this would be to doubt this verse. And we know the position of anyone who doubts one verse out of the book of Allah azza wa jal. I don't need to explain. Our Deen needs nothing but to be plugged into the
situation. Those two things that Allah gave us are an eternal law. calama law, the Book of Allah, the speech of Allah, it's with us.
It was us. It hasn't changed. It hasn't changed. And along with that is the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, which is an explanation, a method for implementation of that which Allah has revealed. These two things is what this ummah needs. Without the confusion. Simple, go back to what we have those things no one can ever be confused about. You can never be confused about Columbia Law. You can never be confused about the son of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, because these things are clear. They are clear to us.
Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah has told us this. Yeah, you have Latina Rufus and Mika
shapen. In the hula Komodo movie, Allah told us, all you who believe or you who possess Amen, those of you who say amen to the law, he was holy. We believe in Allah and His messenger. Allah says, If you believe then enter into Islam,
completely don't mean anything else. There is no picking and choosing, because I live here what like maybe I can do this. And I'm not going to do that. Allah azza wa jal told us to enter into Islam completely, and to follow not the footsteps of our shaytaan. You see, the moment we start picking from the deen, the moment we start picking and choosing, we have begun to follow the path of a sharp pawn, and this was the downfall of the Ummah before us.
There are not Mussa la said, and they destroyed themselves on this principle, they would pick and choose, they would decide they would follow what fits in with them, and what they wanted. And they would leave out that which was too difficult, or maybe they didn't understand it, or they just didn't feel like it, they would leave it out. And this is why I lost with Hannah who has put them in this state of humiliation, and to this day, they will not have peace anywhere they go. Now look at this.
Look at the Muslims of this time, we need to wake up, we have no peace, anywhere in the east, the Muslims are not in peace in the West, the Muslims are not in peace in the Middle East, the Muslims are not in peace. I guarantee you find some Muslims in an architect article they'll be suffering something.
Why this is what we have to consider is that if there are conditions that are not to our betterment, as Muslims, as believers, who were launched a panel with the artist says they will be us who will inherit the earth. Then what is the problem? Is there something wrong with the revelation of Allah azza wa jal? We know this is not true. It's perfect, cannot perfect. Is there something wrong with the son of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam?
Something wrong with us? Something wrong with us and we're not learning. We're not learning, not even learning from our past. We're not even learning from our history, and it's become a big problem. You see, this neuron is not just a recitation. It's not just something for our children to memorize. So that one day they can lead so if that's what the Quran has become to us, then we are already doomed to lead already too late. The Quran is the guide book for humanity, in every situation, in every situation will love it. I have no problem swearing by the Creator of all things that there is not a situation that any human being can ever face in their life.
The Koran has not addressed it and it has not been explained in one form or fashion in the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam I have no doubt about this. Everything is in this book, Allah subhanho wa Taala said unto His Prophet, when is Allah Allah Allah kita? Deanna Lee Cooley Shea,
Indiana Lee Cooley, Shea, we have sent down unto you this book, that is an explanation, a expounding on all things. on everything. Do you doubt the words of Europe? Dr. licorice, it is an explanation of everything, nothing was left out.
And a guidance and a mercy. What will surely mostly mean, and I'm glad tidings for those who are Muslims.
So what is our problem? What's stopping us? what's confusing us? What is leading us so far away, when the Quran is still with us, we'll hamdulillah there will be a time where this unknown will not even have the book of Allah anymore. It will be forgotten so much, that during the last few days, it will not exist, it will have been taken away from the books and from the hearts of people. They will know nothing about Islam, except the statement of La ilaha illa Allah, and that will be sufficient for those people. But we still have it with us today. And we treat it as if it's, it's just going to always be there. It's not, it's not we need to wake up to our situation. A lot also says about Al
Quran taxila polish, that it is an interpretation for all things, that it explains everything. Everything could only shake every single thing the Quran has touched upon it. This is the miraculous nature of Columbia Law. I have no doubt about that. Do I know the answer? And can I pull the answer out of every single page of the Quran. That's why we have great memberships will lead with us who can help us and we are blessed in Minnesota, you're blessed in Minneapolis to have people have knowledge of repute of status, who can go into the book of Allah and tell you what Allah has told you to solve problems in your life. There are so many people that don't have that. So many Muslims
live in a dark area where nobody knows what the Quran means. They just know how to read it. Maybe. Wow, we are so blessed. And Allah has told us that this plan will explain everything well who the again, or of mother will tell me you mean, it is a guidance and a mercy For whosoever believes.
What's wrong with us? Why are we turning to anything but the book of Allah azza wa jal? Why are we trying to have our problem solved as an Ummah by anything other than what you find in the GitHub of Allah and the Sunnah of his prophet and a Serato? Sir, why? We need to come up with an answer because trust me, if you don't answer that today, you will answer on the day when you stand in front of your lawn, you'll answer then you better have an answer today as to why you're turning to everything. When problems are afflicting you, you're turning to everything. When the Muslims are suffering, we're turning to everything. We're going to the Senate to the Congress, to the UN to this
and that pleading and begging when Allah has already told you where to find the answer.
And you don't need to go anywhere to get it except step a few feet across your room, pull up the Quran and ask Allah subhanho wa Taala to help you and then find the people of knowledge as Allah subhana wa tada said.
So as the people of the reminder that people have knowledge, ask them, ask them, ask them, you have it here, Allah soprano, who will Diana also says to our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, because a lot of people are of the opinion, unfortunately, and this is also an incorrect concept, that the Quran is sufficient in and of itself, meaning this book, I take it, I read it, I solve my problems, Done deal and then nothing else is also another confusion in this.
Another confusion is because you cannot understand the prime
the way it is meant to be understand, understood, unless you understand it from the one whom it was revealed. This is reality. Allah subhanho wa Taala did not reveal the Quran
unto any of you. He did not reveal the Quran to any of the scholars of Islam. He did not reveal the Quran to any of the companions and explain it to them. He revealed it to other sources
Aloha My name is Salim and explained it to him. Then he explained it to his companions and then they have explained it to us. This is where we get our Deen. These two things are synonymous. You cannot abandon one without the other because the two go wherever each other goals. If you leave the son of the crime goes with it. You need the Quran the student has gone with it. You cannot have one without the other. Allah subhana wa tada says into his messenger when Zanna alayka decra and we have revealed to you to you or Mohammed Salah law, it was seldom the vicar of the Quran,
the two by him Allah ness so that you can explain it to them, so that you can explain it to them.
That which was revealed to them with the homeopathic rune. And it is per chance so that maybe you reflect maybe you'll think about it. Maybe you'll think that Allah azza wa jal revealed this to our Prophet for a reason. He didn't reveal it to him, to keep it to himself or just for him and his companions. It was for us. Why do you think Allah subhanho wa Taala has not only allowed the Quran to be preserved for us, but he has also allowed the suddenness of His Messenger. So the law was sending them through the efforts of the scholars of Islam, through the trials and efforts of the scholars of Islam to make it to you and I here today authentically named for me one of the prophets,
that anyone anyone can verify what he said at any time at any place, you can't, unless you go to the son of the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam, there is no oma, they can say we know Moosa said this we have it chains of their ration scientifically proven, he said it. No one can say about Jesus, no Christian in their right mind.
Born and raised a Christian can say they know without a shadow of a doubt that Jesus said any of the things they claimed that he said, because there's no evidence for any of it. But Allah Jalla wa ala has allowed you, the followers of Mohammed somebody was sending them to still have his pure sooner with you today. You have the blessed opportunity that no other Ummah has in this world today. No other religion has the opportunity to go through the books and say that I live my life the exact same way Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam lived his life. I eat the way he ate, I sleep the way he slept. I think the way he spoke, I dressed the way he dressed. I liked what he liked. I disliked what he
disliked. I do what he says, and I stay away from what he stopped me from.
Under the law for Islam, Alhamdulillah Allah and Islam brothers and sisters, you don't understand what you have. from someone who came from confusion, trust me, from someone who came from a religion, a religion that was just take it, don't question it, live it in the story you're gonna have in one way or the other, to having a religion where I can prove everything.
Everything 100 behind me, Allah subhanho wa Taala commands us about our rules of the law.
rasuluh whatever the messenger gives you take it,
whatever he gives you, there is no stipulation if and, but and maybe and when and where and time and how know whatever the messenger gives you. Take it, if he said, do it, do it.
If he said, do it, do it. women know how, to who and whatever he forbade you and told you to stay away from stay away from it.
This is not the statement of any scholar. These are the very words of the Creator of all things. These are the very words of he who holds the dominion of all things created. And he governs them is telling you simply a simple message. If I told you something similar, this is how far we've drifted. If I tell you, whatever your father tells you to do, do it. You got that? That's black and white. You have no problem understanding that whatever your mother tells you to do, do it. We get that quickly as four year old children, we get that but now all of a sudden, when Allah Jalla Allah is telling you whatever Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam tells you to do do it and whatever he
says, Don't do don't do now all of a sudden, there's an
about everything. About everything. There's a difference of opinion and issue but there's some doubtful in the matter. stuff. We need to wake up. We are our own enemy. Trust me, the media is not your enemy.
Trust me the enemies you think your enemies are not your enemies shippon is not even your enemy except when you follow him except when you follow him and that your toys chepang cannot make any of you do anything unless the panel with Allah reminds us of the Day of Judgment ship on will when we blame him just hold on one second. I called you listened simple solution, you're in trouble. I've been in trouble. Not gonna hurt me any more than I already am. We need to wake up brothers and sisters Really? We need to wake up. And then I'll also kind of with the other ones. As you see the early might have taught us that this verse is so important. This verse is a paramount importance to
our Deen and it is part of the appeal of the Muslim to obey the Prophet civil law. How do we send them and it is so important that at the end of this verse, a loss of handle with the Allah incorporates fearing him and his punishment kotoko law in the law, Harsha de Lille upon fear Allah because Allah is severe in his punishment, warning you that if you abandon the way the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam that you have earned the anger and wrath of Allah azza wa jal and Allah subhanho wa Taala told us, may you tell a resume for katama whoever has obeyed the messenger, you've obeyed Allah.
You've obeyed Allah so how can you tell me as a Muslim, that I believe in Allah and I wish to obey Him, but you don't follow the commands of his messengers on
how these two things go hand in hand. There's not one without the other you take it all, or just leave it all. There is no more playing games. You have to understand something brothers and sisters.
We are seeing a time of separation of happen but the right before our eyes, it's happening. Our Prophet alayhi salatu salam prophesized that a very long time ago, and we are seeing it happening right now. If you are in tune to what's going on around you.
And you are in tune with the book of Allah and the Sunnah of his prophet alayhi salatu salam, you will see it, heart and bothered are being separated like oil and water separates. And no matter how much the media and those who hate Islam try to shake the bottle to redo it. That pure water will always come back to the top.
sides are being chosen whether you like it or not, they've been chosen for you. We need to find out where we are going to be standing.
When the decisions are made by Allah azza wa jal as to the success of this Deen because whether you like it or not, this Deen will be successful. Whether the media likes it or not. This Deen will be successful. Whether the haters of Islam like it or not. This Dean will be successful. Ally's already commanded it Allah has already foretold it. Allah has already stated it. The question will be where will you be? If you are alive? Where will you be standing on that day? Will you be standing?
Also, we have to remind ourselves of something else brothers and sisters.
We have our priorities. We have our priorities, a little bit
askew, a little bit deconstructed. Because when you see the actions of this oma today, majority, when I speak of this, I'm speaking of the majority of people, the people who say Lai Mohammed Rasul Allah, I'm not going to dissect and group up and everyone who says they believe in a line is messenger, because that's the group that you put in by the enemies of Islam. That's it. The categories categorize you on something I'll talk about next time through the RAND Institute. We're not going to talk about that today. You either fundamental issue of moderate or conservative, you're this and that in the third. But nevertheless, we have our priorities a bit askew we are in
predicaments throughout the globe, the Muslims are suffering. We're suffering here in Minneapolis, Muslims are suffering, Muslims are going through hardship. And we are going to the wrong place for a way out. We're looking in all the wrong places. We're looking as if we're playing hide and seek
with ourselves, and we're looking in all the wrong places. We are placing our trust. Somewhere it doesn't need to be placed in people.
Let me say something brothers and sisters, if you trust any human being the way that you're supposed to trust Allah, not only is your Eman deficient as a better claim, or Josie has said that having to work in a law is a priority and a prerequisite to being a Muslim, and to being a movement. But forget about that for a moment. But you'll be disappointed. You'll be disappointed. Human beings are flawed. We're flawed. We're going to screw up all the time. If you are fearing.
Human beings the way that you should fear Allah, then you're in for a painful punishment.
The next slide, Allah has already told us that if you feel you feel like you should feel me
and if you only understood, you know, defending Allah Subhana, who with the Allah is the only person who the believer should see.
Allah subhanho wa Taala is the only person that we should trust and place our trust in and have reliance on and think good about it, all of the things that means a loss of Hannah hotel is the only one we should be concerned about right now. Because no one can change your situation. Let me tell you that right now. No one can change your situation. The Senate's not going to change your situation. Congress can change your situation, the United Nations cannot change your situation. No one can change a situation of this ummah, except this ominous trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, that's the only thing that can change it a loss of Hannah who with our Allah reminds us in the
Quran, Allah And whosoever fears Allah Allahu Maharaj He will make for them away.
You see brothers and sisters we forgot that Allah says whosoever feels Allah, Allah will create make your Allahu Maharaja make for them away, away out of what they are going through. You don't need to find the way Allah Gianna or Allah controls all things can make away can make the impossible as I said the last time I was standing here possible can make that which cannot be done. easily done. If only you would have some trust. If only you should have some trusts. What do you mean hey, follow your tax ID and allow will provide for you from areas where you did not expect
if you are compromising any portion of your deen
for a little bit of this dunya Let me tell you your logic is twisted in your image shot. Because the person whom you are compromising for gets there very risk that you think that they can give to you from Allah subhanho wa Taala
Allah azza wa jal has only commanded you to make the effort, I will provide the means I will provide the assistance as the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said, when the birds go out, not one of them comes back, but has their stomachs full, they make the effort they don't know where they're going to get their food from. No bird wakes up in the morning with a plan to go to McDonald's, or a plan to go to
a restaurant, none of them. They all get up knowing and trusting fully that Allah Subhana who would to Allah will take care of me. And none of them are ever disappointed. But we as human beings, we need help. We don't we see a lot of favor in our life every day, we wake up that's a favor from Allah. We can say Alhamdulillah when we wake up, that's a favor from Allah. But yet as soon as it comes to money tomorrow, now all of a sudden, we don't trust anymore. We trust in what we can see with our two eyes, more than we trust and what Allah subhanho wa Taala can create from nothing. We've lost our way. We've lost our way. Then Allah subhana wa tada says, well, may you have to work
with Allah, Allah. And whosoever puts their trust in Allah, whoever Allah didn't say, this person or that person will say whoever puts their trust in Allah for hasta boo, he's enough for them. He's enough for them. Whosoever places their trust in Allah, he's enough for them. He's sufficient, he is more than you need. And really, the one who is rich who creates means
and everything that comes into your life is because Allah is Allah hacking. He's the wise, and he's put it in your life for a wisdom and a reason that you don't see. You just need to trust. Sometimes you just need to trust and then Allah azza wa jal reminds us in the lower belly for me.
But jamela Holy cow, Alisha, that Allah Subhana who were to Allah will complete his purpose on this earth. And for all things Allah has already destined in place them in order. So what are you doubting? What are you worried about? You're worried about death that you can't avoid. It's going to happen. It's already written time in place, date, hour of the day, second of the day that you will meet the angel of death. Don't worry about it. It's going to happen when it's meant to happen. You're worried about getting a job. Oh, no. You go that big beard. The first thing you walk in the door is terrorists walking in, they're gonna kick you out. Don't do it. So panel to panel. We forget
that Allah subhanho wa Taala controls all things. Our sisters are told no, don't wear that trash bag on your head. Stuff rolling, you're gonna go and they're not gonna give you a job. They're gonna insult you. They're gonna laugh at you. You might be struggling this system might be a single mother. She might be debating ship on maybe playing with it.
Take it off, you get money.
When a loss of Hannah who has already promised that sister in written for her her sustenance 50,000 years before he created anything, and the Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said about that writing that the pin has already been lifted in the pages of dried, the pages of dried
the beauty of the suit in the brothers and sisters, the beauty of following the way of our mothers, I shall have a loved one. And I shall have the Aloha and I said about our sisters, that the most blessed of them is a woman who is never seen by a man nor does she see them. This is our sisters, the beauty of our sisters they keep it for themselves will lie. I heard the other day
a sister get called ugly that that thing you're wearing is ugly. Nothing you're wearing is ugly. And she put her head down. Halloween acquitted and we let the sisters do not understand the beauty that Allah has given them. This amount of sisters that we have are some of the most beautiful sisters, some of the most beautiful women walk in the face of the earth. And everyone should know that if they were to uncover that are the rest of the women who would be ashamed of themselves. They protect that from everyone except their husband only Jews have no doubt about that sisters you beautiful that belongs to your husband and whomsoever Allah has allowed you to interview them in front of
don't compromise that for anything no compromise this Deen is not a dean of compromise ation you're not going to make agreements with a law in compromise. You just need to follow that which was revealed yeah you held Edina mn okay Rufus in Mecca. Oh you who believe enter into Islam come pleat Lee aku will start feeling welcome first doctor who in the hole
hamdulillah Ramadan amine or salatu wa salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah He was said to me, he urged me. Why should I do in in a high Lama wahoo luxury gala? Well, I shall do Mohammed and Abu rasuluh. I'm done in five minutes.
A couple of things I want you to remember. First and foremost,
we have the most perfect way of life. Don't ever let anyone make you doubt that. Don't ever let anyone make you doubt that every single point in Islam, every single revelation, every single verse, every single verdict, every single judgment, all of it is perfect. It is 100% absolutely perfect. And there is no such thing as apologizing for something which is perfect.
The only apology you can have is that I'm sorry you don't see it. Sorry that you don't see it. But Islam is perfect. Every piece of it. Every piece of it is perfect. Our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam said and this is to also show you that the sermon is also perfect. It's also complete. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said and this is narrated in Babylon Elif or you know the Allahu Akbar, and this is in the Muslim Avi Muhammad and it was authenticated as a Hey, Masha Taliban in honey malata Allah, he said, Our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam told us that I have left nothing that would bring you closer to Allah, except that I commanded you to do it. There is nothing that
will bring you closer to Allah, except that I've already commanded you to do it. And there is nothing that would distance you from Allah and bring you closer to him, except that I have already commanded you to stay away from it. Meaning that our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa Salaam gave us everything we need. Everything we need, we don't need to add to it or take away from it was a lot of data to her. And the worst was the the you can perform is something that is innovated in this religion. The worst. Just take it as it is. You can't perfect perfection. It's already done. It's already done. Also our Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam said
he gave a sermon to the companions. And it was such a striking sermon that it caused their hearts to bleed they said and their eyes to shed tears so they said you're also Lola. This is almost a visit a farewell advice. So So counselors, what do you counselors? He said, I have left you upon that which is clear. I have left you upon that which is clear. It's night is like it's day. It's night is like it's day. No one deviates from it, except that he is destroyed. Our Prophet alayhi salaatu wa sallam said this path and he left us on his bite you know, it's clear. It's clear. We just need to stick to it may give you one small story about having trust in Allah will be done in two minute story about
having trust in Allah and the fact that it is a continuation of what I said last time that you might not know what a loss plan is. Trust me, the plan of Allah is unfolding right before our eyes right before our eyes. Our job right now is the Ummah of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
To stand firm, stand firm on what we believe on stand firm on who we are.
Or where I'm no sorry how Apollo in many, many Muslim and those who say I am a Muslim no doubt no doubt I'm not gonna hide hide from what I can hide from you all I want but I will never hide from Allah subhanho wa Taala Alice was going to do me no good. There is a story that was quoted by even Roger de rinomhota in his book
about a man named Abu Bakr Al Ansari. He was also known as a party in medicine.
He lived there he died in your 535 of the hijra. He's narrating a story about himself or the medicine. He said I was once in the city of Mecca. I was so hungry, so hungry, I didn't have anything to eat. Nothing I could eat. And then as I was walking in Mecca, looking maybe find something to eat. I found the pouch, a pouch so I took it home. He opened it untied it he said it was the most beautiful necklace he had ever seen peruse the most beautiful necklace you'd ever seen. I mean, this is like a million dinar necklace going on here. Tons of pearls. Beautiful. So he's thinking to himself hamdulillah Allah has provided was provided for me.
So he left that one out. As he's going out again, he walked out in the streets, he heard an old man calling out that I have lost a necklace was in a pouch. Has anybody found it? Now this funding amount of Stan was a bit evil. It was a moment talk when you tried to put his trust in a line everything that he did, he was known for this. He went to the man and he said I found the parts that I think might be use. He said but I need you to describe it to me Tell me what it looks like. So the man said you know he not only said he described the necklace, how many pearls it had on it, the the string that was tied around the pouch with the pulse light with the string on the necklace. Alright,
so clearly that sorry, said I knew this was this necklace. And the man was offering a 500 dinar reward whoever found it. So he brought him to his house and he gave it to him, and the man is ready to pay him the 500 dinar. And then abubaker said, Subhanallah I didn't do anything to earn this money. You know, it's not as if I put in some effort, I found something in the street that I was going to keep it for no one else claimed it. And here I am trying to take money for the man to given back what belongs to him. Because he didn't feel he didn't feel good about it. You see there is something inside of every believer that leads them towards right and wrong. That little thing we
call a conscience that usually generally will lead you in the right direction if you haven't destroyed your heart already. So he refused and the man kept trying to force him to take the money said no no
lie I trust in Allah taking this belongs to you. So it belonged to him and he took it. After a while Abu Bakr said I left Mecca and I went on a ship. He was going to go and try to find his sustenance somewhere else was it working for him in Mecca. He said as we were going and the ship was transporting money.
The ship sank a storm came in a ship sank. Many people on the ship died and all the money was lost on the ship. So he said that I found a raft, something to float me on. And these aren't authentic stories but authenticated. This is noted scholars have related the story many times over. He said I got out I held on to this raft in the wind blooming and blooming blooming to the blooming to an island that was inhabited. When I got to this island that was inhabited. I went directly to find the masjid first place you want to go to the masjid. So I want to find the people if you wanted to find the people who went to the master, but there was no one there. So he said I sat down and started
reciting Quran. And then people all of a sudden came in. They heard me reciting Quran and they said, will you teach us? And
he said yes. So they started learning Quran from him and showering him with gifts, showering me with gifts. Then he saw that there was some pages from the Quran in the masjid. So he took them and started reading them. And they said Subhana Allah, you know how to read. You know how to read and write for this. They said, teach us how to read and write and our children, and we will pay you and they started showering them with gifts again. Now, I had seen been doing this for a while they were afraid that he might leave them. So they said there is this girl in our town. We'll be done in two minutes. This girl in our town was just become orphans. And we'd like you to marry her. She's known
as one of the most beautiful women, most beautiful women of this town. Would you like to marry her? At first he refused because he understood they're trying to keep me here forever. So he refused. He said, No, no, no, no. After a while they kept pushing and pushing and pushing me like these people. So he finally gave in and said I'll marry her.
So then he got to place and then they brought him his wife. And he said as I was looking up to look at her face, I could not go past her neck. He stopped staring at her neck. Because on her neck. He saw the exact same necklace he had given to that old man, the same necklace he had found that Mecca is now on this girl's neck. And he's shocked and the people are more shocked because they think he thinks the girl is ugly. So he's not looking at her face and like oh my god, you've broken this
little girl's heart. She's about to have a heart attack here. Well, you know, she's supposed to be this all we got is the most beautiful girl in town. He said, No, no, I know this necklace. I gave this necklace to an old man in Mecca some time ago, some time ago, and they all started screaming Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allah, Allah hate Mama. They said, that men that you gave that necklace to is this girl's father, who just recently passed away. And we used to hear him say about the man who gave him this necklace. He said one lie, you have never met a Muslim, so pious and so trustworthy, and so dependent on a lot as I have seen this man, and he used to make do are openly
that allow would allow this man to be married to his daughter one day. He said, this is the answer of the door of this father. The answer of the door of this Father, you see debacle brothers and sisters, sometimes it might seem like everything is going crazy, you you you might be in the darkest tunnel. And then Allah azza wa jal shows you the lines, so he married this girl had children in them to make a long story short, eventually the girl died. And now the hardship upon him. Then his two boys that he had with this girl died. So he ended up selling the inheritance of the necklace that he got from the girl, and someone ended up buying it from him for 100,000. And when he was telling this
story, he was explaining how he became a wealthy man, how he went from a poor man in America, who had not even food to put it in his stomach to now he was a very wealthy man, and very honored man in this place. You see brothers and sisters, we we just got to learn to trust. We just got to learn that a lot is that hacky? If you believe that Allah is Allah Hakeem live like Allah is Allah came in your life. It might seem like everything is turned against you. You might be ready to cry out your mo Why, why me? What did I do? And we think that a lot some of us What did we do? When we really think about it? We've done plenty. Trust me, we've done plenty. But still, Allah subhanho wa Taala
is lacking and he is working things out in your favor. The Prophet alayhi salatu wa sallam said about the life of the woman that the life of the movement is all of it is blessed. All of it is good, every single bit of it. So there is not a single thing that comes to the believer, but it's not for their benefit. We just need to wake up. The Quran is with us brothers and sisters. The sun is established with us, brothers and sisters. We just need to take those two and follow it and leave the rest in the hands of Allah azza wa jal leave the rest of Allah you do your part, Allah will do his part. May Allah soprano who would Allah make us those who hear the words of Allah and follow the
best of it? May he raised up an Ummah that is willing to follow His commands and the commands of his prophet Alayhi salat wa salam, may Allah raise an Ummah of youth who are ready to take hold of this Deen and make it a place of honor and dignity amongst mankind's eyes once again, Robin Athena fiducia Hassan Hassan Latina de Bono rabbit field under the new banner vice Rafi and Marina whatever them and when sadhana Allah comin Catherine Allah whom and Surah slama muslimeen Allahu mansarovar Islam and muslimeen equally mechanical hammer Rafi mean was the letter sherco machete King.
