00:00:09--> 00:00:14

Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu was salam, ala rasulillah were either early he was second he

00:00:15--> 00:00:18

was already off middle Ma, he was ready to

00:00:19--> 00:00:38

the world is a mess right now. Would you agree with me? Would you agree with me the world is a mess right now. We don't know what's up or down. We don't know what's left or right. We don't know what's truth. We don't know what's false. We don't know what's what anymore because the world has completely gone crazy.

00:00:39--> 00:00:42

And things are happening all over the world.

00:00:43--> 00:01:09

Within the within the Muslim world, we see the things that are happening in Palestine, we see the things that are happening behind the scenes, we see the things that are happening in Burma, we see that things that are happening with our anger, we see the things that are happening with our weaker brothers and sisters, we see the things that are happening in Yemen, we see the things that are happening all over. It's so many things are are dark, and it looks weird, it looks strange, and we don't know where to turn next. And things are getting darker by the day.

00:01:10--> 00:01:24

We have to wake up to these facts. Two things. I'm gonna give you some advice. And then we're going to talk about trusting the Planet of the Almighty. Now I have a lot of people that reach out to me. And they'll say, you know, why don't you talk about what's going on here? Have you seen what's happening here? You've seen what's happening there.

00:01:25--> 00:01:46

Let me tell you something brothers and sisters. Right now we live in a world where nothing is as it seems nothing is as it seems. And if your source of information, if your source of information for current world events, is any mainstream news publication, then you are misinformed. You were misinformed. I'll tell you like Malcolm X, write him a whole lotta analysts said.

00:01:48--> 00:02:29

Malcolm X says if you don't watch the news, you're ill informed means you don't know what's being said around you. And if you do watch the news, then you're misinformed. And I've been saying this for years and years and years and years and years. The only facts that you will get from the mainstream media, the only facts that you will get from the mainstream media on a regular basis is the time and the date, the time what time it is, and what day of the week it is. That's it. That's what is reliable information that comes from major news outlets. Everything else is an agenda. Everything else is to push an agenda, to push an ideology to push something. So be very, very, very,

00:02:29--> 00:03:12

very cautious about taking things that you see on major news outlets. And that includes social media and social media is highly, highly censored these days, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, tick tock all of it. Do not take those things and spread them around as if they are facts as if they are facts. Don't do this, don't do this. Because you will be deceived, you are going to be deceived. Make sure and Allah, Allah Allah tells us this. If a If an evildoer comes to you with some information with some news, and they come to you with gossip, and slander, and in news, just anything, if someone who is not trustworthy comes to you with these things, verify this information. And the reason why Allah

00:03:12--> 00:03:46

says so that you do not harm people unjustly. So if your source of information about current world events that you want to come and ask me to talk about is based on media, I'm going to tell you straight up. That's not my thing, because I know the media, all they do is sell an agenda. That's their job, their job is to sell an agenda, whoever they're funded by whoever their whoever's running them, we're not going to get deep down that dark hole today. But we have to make sure it would take those things that are green. So the only truth you're going to get from the media is the time and the date. And they might even get that wrong sometimes, but that's it.

00:03:48--> 00:03:58

But we see the world is in such chaos, such darkness such weirdness. And we might not be able to understand what is happening we might not understand.

00:03:59--> 00:04:38

And we might question Allah subhanho wa Taala Why, why Why? Why are things happening the way they happen? And this is something I've been saying for many years now even way before this whole pandemic, in the politics that have been played with it is that we are not commanded anywhere. Anywhere you cannot find for me in the book of Allah. You cannot find for me in the Sunnah of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, anywhere where Allah or his messenger commanded us that we have to understand our Creator, that we have to understand Allah subhanho wa Taala that we have to understand Allah. Nowhere does Allah say that we have to understand his plan. He just tells us that

00:04:39--> 00:04:59

we have to trust him to walk out to Allah Allah that we have to put our trust upon Allah for those who are indeed believers. Allah doesn't tell us even about letting the halal lie he tells us that lm and Allah Allah, Allah, Allah have knowledge of Lady Laila. We don't have to understand the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala because a lot of times, our minds are not able to fathom and wrap around the way Allah subhana wa

00:05:00--> 00:05:08

Allah Jalla wa ala works in his creation. It's our brains cannot fathom it. Allah told us to trust him.

00:05:09--> 00:05:20

And then we put our trust upon him. That's it. We don't have to understand every single thing and I'm going to explain something to you a few stories. They should give you a little bit of hope today. Insha Allah huhtala brother mentioned in brother Abir

00:05:21--> 00:05:37

mentioned one of them earlier. And these stories have always given me so much hope when when things have not been going the way I wanted them to go. And that's going to happen a lot in your life, you're going to plan as Allah subhanho wa Taala says, we can plan the plan Allah plans in the Lucha

00:05:38--> 00:06:13

halal magazine, that Allah is deed, the best of those who plan, Allah is the best of those who plan. So these stories give me hope, when we don't understand what's going on. Because we are just supposed to put trust in Allah, we're supposed to work within with our capacity as we talked about in the talk, predestination versus free will and that reminder, we're supposed to do with with what's within our capacity, and then the success or failure of that we still rely upon the trust of Allah subhanho wa Taala whether or not it will be successful or of a failure, everything that is outside of our control, which is the majority of what is happening in the world right now. We have

00:06:13--> 00:06:32

to trust and Allah Allah Allah, that he has the best plan at hand. Now I'll tell you a few stories inshallah. We're going to go way back way back to the time of Bani Israel to the story of Musa la Sam, we all famously know and I like to talk about some of these stories because they're famously known so I don't need to you know, prove to you these stories exist.

00:06:35--> 00:06:36

When

00:06:37--> 00:07:00

moose la Sam was born, this was a time when fear around was that his worst fear own was at his height of tyranny and oppression and fear to own had a dream. And in this dream, fit own dream that one of the children of Bani Israel at the time one of the sons of Bani Israel of the time, would grow up and would

00:07:02--> 00:07:24

would overthrow him would grow up and would overthrow him. So, fit our own, made a mandate that he would kill all of the firstborn sons of Bani Israel, all of the sons of Bani Israel, he would slaughter them and he put out an edict to have them slaughtered and made the streets of Egypt run red blood with the children of Bani Israel, the sons of Bani Israel.

00:07:25--> 00:07:25

So,

00:07:26--> 00:07:31

during this time, Allah subhanho wa Taala Adda said his plan into motion

00:07:32--> 00:07:36

if it only had a plan, Allah subhanho wa Taala had a plan.

00:07:37--> 00:08:21

So Allah Jalla wa ala sent an angel to the mother of Musa and this angel told the mother of Moosa to take your child because Allah subhanho wa Taala had chosen great things from awesome. So he told her, take your child, put him in a box and put him in the Nile River and place your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Jalla wa ala will take care of it. So this is the plan. Now can you imagine as a mother or even as a father, someone who has children I don't know how, you know, you could wrap your head around the idea of taking an infant and putting it in a box and placing it in the Nile River. The Nile River the na hernial is not some little bubbling Brook that you know flows gently

00:08:21--> 00:08:47

along the Nile River is a massive river with a lot of strong currents I when I lived in Egypt for a while I lived in in mineral Kadima right in front of manual and I my flat face the Nile river where it branches off around manual. It is it I didn't even get into it is a growing man. I wouldn't even jump I think you have to be born and raised in Egypt to be able to swim in the Nile River. But anyway, that's another story in and of itself. But she

00:08:48--> 00:09:22

decided to have trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala. She decided to trust him. She didn't ask, okay, how is this going to work? What is the plan going to be? You know, what is step ABC? Like we would be if I handed over my child to someone else. I would want to know where are you going? What are you doing? And then what are you taking them? What's the plan, schedule, give me a phone number to call you give me I want to know I have all the information. You're taking my child, we need everything. She decided to trust the planet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. So she placed her son in a box and pushed him into the Nile River. Now, for those of you who know this story,

00:09:23--> 00:09:31

this buck started floating down the Nile River. And But Moses mother was also a mother. May Allah subhana wa tada bless all of our mothers. I mean,

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

so she sent her daughter most the sister go tell me where this box goes, go watch this box and see where it goes. Because yes, she trusts in the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, but she's also a mother and she needs to sleep at night. So she says go see where this box goes. So most of the sister watch this box it floats up the Nile River. Where does it end up? Where does this box end up going? Well, where where? Her goal whole goal of putting him in this box right?

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

was to protect him from fear own right to protect him from fear. Oh, so she puts him in this box. This box starts floating up the Nile River. Where does this box end up landing.

00:10:13--> 00:11:00

So Panama This just shows you the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala this box ends up with Mussa inside of it ends up landing in the backyard of fear on Halloween acquainted in this box, this box ends up in the backyard of their own, the very person whom she put him in the box to protect him from ends up in the backyard of the one who is running around killing the sons of Van inside SubhanAllah. This plan does not seem like it's working right? At this point in the story. Can you imagine if this was like a movie or a TV series, right? And as soon as the box lands in the backyard in front of fit on some dramatic music comes dun dun dun and then they cut the commercial break. We'll see you on the

00:11:00--> 00:11:39

next episode next week. What would we be thinking all week long? All week long. We'd be like, oh, oh, the biller is over for Mussa this plan did not work. This one didn't work? Or can you imagine if technology was the way it is now. And most his mother could could take a quick, you know, picture and then text it to a mother and a mother opens the phone. And what does she see? She sees that the boy that she put in the box to protect from fit on is now sitting in fit owns backyard. She might be like, nope, nope, I bought this whole plan. This plan isn't working. Let's go get that box. Let's bring it back home. This wasn't it. This is what not, this is not what I agreed to. So panela but it

00:11:39--> 00:12:20

lands the backyard of federal because we might not understand the plan of Allah Subhana which we don't need to. We don't need to we're not commanded to. We're supposed to trust it. So who goes and finds this box, I see the wife of ferroan who held faith in her heart. She had belief in Allah subhanho wa Taala alone with her head, but she kept it hidden. She's the one who found the child. So she finds this child and Allah Jalla Anna immediately gives her love and affection for this child. So she goes to fit home. There's another small lesson for my married brothers. She goes to fit our own. And she convinces him to adopt this child and take him in. she convinces him brothers Let me

00:12:20--> 00:13:01

tell you something, if you're if you're not married yet, learn this lesson. Now. Your wife has a power a superpower, that when she knows how to use it, she can get what she wants. And it's better for you to realize this. And given early rather than the long battle you're going to give up anyway. And it's called the superpower of persuasion. It's called the superpower of persuasion. This is something that Allah subhanho wa Taala gifted our wives with the superpower of persuasion. When she wants something she know how to get out of you look at her own, his wife convinced him to take in and adopt his own destruction. His wife convinced him to adopt and take in his own destruction. And

00:13:03--> 00:13:31

so he adopted him. Now they needed to find a witness to to to to feed Moosa, they had to find a witness to feed Moosa because there was no formula, they could just go and buy and mix it up and feed him and he was an infant, so he could only drink milk. So they brought one way or nurse after another after another. This is a very respectable profession of the time. They brought one witness after another after another after another, and he wouldn't take from any of them. He wouldn't take you wouldn't drink, he wouldn't drink, he wouldn't drink. So Pamela,

00:13:32--> 00:14:10

So Moses sisters watching all of this happen, right? She goes, and she comes forward, and she says, Can I can I go and get someone for you that I can assure you, that he will take from her because they were running out of options, this child is going to die if we don't find someone to feed him. So they agreed for their own agrees Go ahead, go get who you want to get. Look at the plan of Allah Subhana without brothers and sisters, just look at it. Just look at it. Just look at it. Who does she go and get she goes and gets a moose as mother. And when the moose his mother comes and he sees his mother. He immediately latches on and starts to breastfeed. So from that moment on, mooses

00:14:10--> 00:14:44

mother is hired and paid a royal salary in order to breastfeed her own child, whom she sent in a box to protect from ferroan, who's now an underfit own house. And not only that, but Moosa and his mother are both considered part of the royal household and are put under royal guard to protect them. So panela so now now, fit our own is not only adopted his own destruction, he's now paying for the mother of his own destruction, to breastfeed our own child and paying royal guards to keep them safe and secure.

00:14:45--> 00:14:59

This child would grow up become a very prominent man in Egypt, and we know the story and how it goes he would eventually flee Egypt, but then come back after speaking to this is the Prophet whom Allah subhanho wa Taala spoke to directly with no intercession

00:15:00--> 00:15:35

With no intersection when no intermediary, Allah spoke to him directly and told him to go to film, he would go around and bring down the kingdom of their own and be the destruction of their own till this day Subhan Allah. This is the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala nobody would understand this. If you were in the middle of it, you wouldn't. It would make no since Why is he in for the Owens house? Why did the box go there? what the question is, we're not supposed to ask the wise. We're supposed to put the trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and do the work that he asked us to do. That's it. Leave the results to him. subhanho wa Taala Allah Jalla wa ala Luigi Lally while the crown. This is about

00:15:35--> 00:15:41

trusting the plan of the Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala trusting. Let me tell you a couple of more stories.

00:15:43--> 00:15:51

There was a story about a man and you'll find this written by even the rajib writing Allah to Allah is the pivotal Hannah, Hannah Hannah,

00:15:52--> 00:16:03

Hannah baliya. In his Treaty on the fifth of mm admin in Hamburg, rinomhota Anna and he, he talks about a man named Abu Bakar Ansari, Abu Bakar al Ansari.

00:16:04--> 00:16:21

He is one of the pious predecessors of our self, he is the one of the pious predecessors of our self. He was known as the old man istan he was known as a very pious, a very, very, very pious, God fearing man, Masha Allah May Allah grant in the highest ranks of Jannah Alhamdulillah.

00:16:23--> 00:16:30

Now, he was a poor man as well. He was a very poor man. And at the time,

00:16:31--> 00:17:08

he was going around looking for some food in Mecca, because he was hungry, he couldn't find anything to eat. So he was going around in Mecca looking for food, and he couldn't find anything to eat. He was looking and looking looking couldn't find but he eventually ended up finding a bag there was a bag on the ground. And he opened this bag and inside this bag was a beautiful pearl necklace worth a lot of money. Now a lot of us we would think, man, Masha, Allah Allah has answered you know, we are hungry had no food and now we got this big, you know, beautiful pearl necklace, I can go sell it, I can feed myself for months. But for Abu Bakar al Ansari,

00:17:09--> 00:17:45

Rahim Allah, this was not his it didn't belong to him. So he couldn't do anything with it. He took it home, put it away, and went back out and started looking for his, you know, sustenance again, because this is this is what we do. Now, later on, as he was walking through the streets of Mecca, he heard an old man, he heard an old man calling out that he had lost a beautiful pro necklace, it was very important to him. If anyone found it, he was offering a big reward. He was offering a big reward for anyone who found this pearl necklace. And so abubaker went to him and said, describe to me your necklace. And I'll tell you if it's the one I found. So he described it flawlessly. So he

00:17:45--> 00:18:21

went and he gave the necklace back to the man and the man was trying to give him a reward. Now, again, here we are, he was a halaal income from Walker is being paid a reward, he could be getting a handsome reward to feed himself maybe for weeks or months. But it didn't sit right with him to take a reward for something giving someone bad property that belong to them. He did not feel you know, right taking this reward back. So they fought about it. He gave the necklace the man said take the reward. He said I don't want it. He said no take it they argued back and forth and finally said look, I'm not taking this reward. I put my trust on Allah subhana wa tada and he left. Now, after

00:18:21--> 00:19:01

some time, after some time, he realized he could not survive in Mecca. His sustenance was not coming to him. And Allah Allah Allah told us that if you know if things become straightened for you make engine or the world is big go travel, see. So he went out, he got on a merchant ship and decided, you know, maybe I'll go out and look for work and my sustenance somewhere else. So he got on a merchant ship. And on his way to whatever destination they were going, a storm came and broke this ship into pieces, and a lot of people died. But I boubakeur Alan sorry, said that he found a piece of wreckage from the ship, you know, like a piece of the side of planking or whatever that was

00:19:01--> 00:19:09

floating. So he grabbed it. And he said the wind came and blew me and blew me and blew me until I reached an island. He said when I got to this island,

00:19:10--> 00:19:49

I went and I will look for the people that I couldn't find them and couldn't find them. So he went and he found the masjid. He sat down in the masjid and started to recite the Quran. And it was known that his recitation of the Quran, his pyrrha was very beautiful. So as he was reciting the Quran so beautifully, some people from that island passed by and they heard him. So they went and gathered everybody and said, Listen to this man's recitation. So they came in the elders of that place. They they told him, we know you're a stranger here, but we're asking Will you stay here with us and teach us how to recite the Quran like this, us our children, we will pay you a salary. So so so pauma

00:19:49--> 00:19:59

abubaker found a job. He found a job teaching Quran. So as he started teaching the poor and later on, they became to realize they came to realize he knew how to read and write. He was literate.

00:20:00--> 00:20:08

So they said, Look, nobody here knows how to read or write. If you stay here with us longer, and teach us how to read and write, we'll pay you more. So they gave him a raise and increased his salary.

00:20:10--> 00:20:47

Now, after some time in the past, and he had earned enough money, he decided that he wanted to go back to Mecca, you know, I mean, he was like, I, I did not plan to come here. So I want to leave. So when he decided he wanted to leave, the elders of that place, did not want him to go. They did not want him to leave. So they, they talked amongst themselves and said, How can we get him to stay here? One of them came up with the ingenious plan to get him married, let's get married. If we get married, he's not going anywhere. We're getting married is not going anywhere. And there was a girl who had just recently been orphaned, her father had passed away. And he was one of the most pious

00:20:47--> 00:21:29

people that they knew. And so they offered her to him in marriage. And initially, he refused, initially refused. He said, No, no, no, no, they, they said, Look, she comes from the most pious family, the most noble family of us. Her father was the most pious of us. And we would offer your marriage finally he gave in, right? So finally, he said, okay, he gave in. So the kneecap was arranged and performed, and the girl was brought. And as she approached Abu Bakar, he looked up to see her. And as soon as he looked up to see her, he dropped his head, and he started crying. He stopped his head, he dropped his head and started crying. And the girl's heart was broken. The

00:21:29--> 00:22:07

people's heart was broken, because they thought it was because he was displeased with her for some reason. So they were like, you know, how can you do this? You know, what is what is the matter with you? And and he stopped, and he said, No, no, no, no, no, listen, this is nothing to do with that. He said, but on her neck. She's wearing a necklace that brings back memories from me. He said, that necklace, I found that one day, I found that necklace one day on the streets of Mecca. I remember seeing this necklace and I remember returning it to its owner. And all of the people started saying, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar. Subhana Allah Subhana Allah Subhana. They said, that

00:22:07--> 00:22:38

necklace was given to her by her father, before he passed away as a gift to her. And we remember we remember him talking about meeting a man in Mecca, losing this necklace, and it being given back to him by one of the most pious people he had ever run into, on the face of this earth. And on top of that, we used to openly hear him making dawn we used to openly hear him making dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala that one day you would be married to his daughter.

00:22:40--> 00:23:20

Subhan Allah, the plan of Allah is perfect brothers and sisters, the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna is infallible, it is infallible, it is immutable. It is unchangeable. It is destined. abubaker did not realize that the reason he couldn't find the sustenance in Mecca was because Allah had another plan for him. abacha didn't realize getting on that ship. Allah had a plan for him when that ship crashed and broke into pieces. And he held on to driftwood and was blown to an island. Allah had a plan for him all along Abu Bakr had his plan. And Allah subhana wa tada had his plan, and the plan of Allah was to answer the door of the father for his daughter. This is one of the accepted to

00:23:20--> 00:24:01

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said one of the accepted da by Allah with no barrier is the dura of a parent for their children. So make dua for your children, the Dora, of this father for his daughter, Allah above the seven heavens above his throne, decided to enter this door. And Abu Bakar had no choice but to follow his destiny. So he married this girl, they had children, he became a very wealthy merchant of this place, and his life went to be beautiful after that, the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala is perfect. Don't doubt it. Don't play with it. Don't try to tamper with it. Do your work, put your trust in Allah subhanho wa Taala and he will never fail you. He will never fail.

00:24:01--> 00:24:22

You never fail you brothers and sisters will lie he Allah will never fail you. People will fail you. Your schools will fail you family might fail you friends might fail you. But Allah subhanho wa Taala will not fail you will never fail. You never failed the believers call me noon. And I'm trying to keep a thread going never failed the believers trust in His plan.

00:24:23--> 00:24:24

I'll tell you another story.

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

At the time of the Buddha laser,

00:24:29--> 00:24:31

at the time of the world, alayhis salaam.

00:24:32--> 00:24:37

There was a woman who was very poor. She was a widow, her husband had passed away.

00:24:38--> 00:24:41

And she survived every single day.

00:24:42--> 00:24:49

Every single day by knitting garments, knitting blankets, sweaters, whatever, whatever she did, she made things by hand.

00:24:50--> 00:24:59

Then she took those things to the market and sold them and when she sold them. She would buy enough material to make something for the next day and with the leftover profit that she made

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

She would buy food for her and her children for that day. This is how she lived. day to day. This how many of us live day to day check to check week to week just getting by. So she was just getting by, by the grace of Allah subhana wa Tada.

00:25:14--> 00:25:28

One day, she was on her way to the market and a bird came in swooped up her basket with her knitting her, her her material, what she had to sell, the bird came souped it up and took off.

00:25:29--> 00:25:42

Gone. Now she has nothing. She has nothing to sell. She has nothing to feed her children. She has nothing to buy to make more stuff for tomorrow. A bird came and took it away. A bird came and took it away.

00:25:44--> 00:26:28

And so she's thinking to herself, this bird acts upon fitrah from Allah subhanho wa Taala birds don't have free will animals don't have free will like you and I they act upon their fitrah. So this bird is acting on the fitrah of Allah subhanho wa Taala and took what she had. So now here she is, her and her children are starving, they don't have anything deeded some days pass. So finally she decides to go to dude, at a salon. She marches in the corner of the world, she marches in the corner of the world. And she asked the question, she says, is Allah just or unjust? is Allah just or is unjust? And so he asked her what makes you ask this question? What makes you ask this question? So

00:26:28--> 00:26:44

she tells him his story. And as she's saying the story dog is thinking about this question, because this is a hard question to answer as a lot. Just we know that it was just but how do you explain it to this woman whom a bird came and just took everything she had a bird? So as she's telling him the story, and he's thinking about it,

00:26:45--> 00:27:07

some men come in holding big bags of gold brothers and sisters. You might not understand the loss plan. It might be dark, you might be saying why Allah Why me? Why are you putting through me through difficulty? Why are you putting me through hardship? I'm trying my best. I'm doing the best that I can. I'm trying every single day hardship keeps falling on me. Evil keeps coming to me. What is this reason? Yeah, Allah.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

Semin came in with bags of gold. And they put it in front of those

00:27:12--> 00:27:53

who did not know these people. And they sent him he said, Who are you? And what is this? What is this for? They said, We are merchants by trade. And we traveled to and from, and we were on our way from our last merchant trip, would we have made a lot of money on hamdulillah. But a storm came and broke the sale of our ship. We could not tie it broken away from the mast. And so we had no way to direct ourselves and we were just wandering aimlessly at sea. And we decided to make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala and make an oath, that if Allah would save us from this calamity, we would donate the proceeds of all of this trip and all of this gold for the sake of Allah subhanho wa Taala sadaqa

00:27:54--> 00:28:23

so after making this Dora Subhana Allah listen to this brothers and sisters, after making this door, a bird flew by a bird flew by our boat and dropped a basket full of knitting materials, yarn and thread and, and needles. And we were able to use this knitting material to repair our sail on our ship, thus safely making it to your land. And so now here we are fulfilling our oath to Allah subhanho wa Taala. In donating this for whomever you see fit. Mecca is such a Allah.

00:28:25--> 00:29:03

Brothers and sisters, you don't have to trust them. You don't have to know the plan. You don't have to understand the plan. You just have to trust it. The world looks at this woman. And he says, Is your Lord just or is he unjust? You have a creator you have a lord. Rob member what I told you guys what Rob means Rob means he takes care of everything. You have Rob who is working for you on land, in the air and by sea to provide you have your means now do you trust him and he took all of that gold and he gave it to her and said this was written to you by Allah subhanho wa Taala take it in she made her a very wealthy woman. The plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala is immutable. It is perfect

00:29:03--> 00:29:40

brothers and sisters. We don't have to understand it. Allah never commanded us to understand it. Allah only commanded us to trust in him. subhanho wa Taala so it might look dark today. It might look like things are going crazy hell in a handbasket. The world's going to hell in a handbasket. There is nothing that you can do about it with your own two hands right now look what limited resources you are capable of me my limited resources are to reach out to every one of you here online. So this is what we do. And I trust in the planet of Allah subhanho wa Taala what he means to be will be what is meant to come to you cannot pass you what is meant to pass you cannot come to you

00:29:40--> 00:29:59

once Allah subhana wa Taala has written it once Allah subhanho wa Taala is commanded it once Allah subhanho wa Taala is decreed it, it will pass it will come to you. You put what you can do make the effort that you can make, put your plan into action and then make dua to Allah subhanho wa Taala for the success of it, and if he wants it to be successful to be successful. That's it.

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

That's it. We trusted him subhanho wa Taala during the time of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam.

00:30:07--> 00:30:48

When he was surrounded in Mecca, when he was surrounded in Mecca, let me tell you something, but this is this is about the plan of Allah Jalla wa ala when our Prophet sallallahu wasallam was surrounded by enemies on all sides in Mecca in his home. What did he do? He told Ali, rob the Allahu Allah early we're going to tell you some stories about it coming up sooner. Earlier on the alar and early Vitaly radi Allahu and Ali decided to sacrifice his own life and lay in the bed of the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, so the Prophet could escape. And guess what, Ali radi Allahu is reported to have said that that night rest, that night's sleep being surrounded by the enemies of

00:30:48--> 00:31:01

Allah was the most sweetest sleep he ever had on the face of this earth. So as earlier the Aloha in world law took the place of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam How is he going to get out of his house, this surrounded on all sides?

00:31:03--> 00:31:31

Allah Jalla wa ala inspired him to blow some some dust and recite from the Quran. So he blew some dust in recited from the Koran and he walked right by them Allah put them to sleep. Allah blinded their eyes. Allah controls every single physical atom in the face of the universe. But then sisters, every single physical particle of made known universe, Allah, Allah, Allah controls that he created it, he commends it, it is under his authority, but the sisters

00:31:33--> 00:32:12

he blinded them, and the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went right by them. But as he's leaving what happens, the Meccans find out the next morning that the Prophet sallallahu Sallam is gone and he's left with Abu Bakar his trusted companion. So they pay a lot of money. They say we have a huge ransom that anyone can find him go find him. One of the best and well known trackers with sawed off but even Malik sarafa even Malik sarafa ibn Malik went to chase the Prophet sallallahu wasallam and he ended up catching up to him. They saw him in the far distance so long as for saw him in the far distance. And so he started catching up to him and abubaker looked behind him and and said, yo

00:32:12--> 00:32:37

Rasulullah sadhaka is behind this one of our biggest enemies is behind this listen to this whole story but insisted if you don't trust Allah His plan after this, I don't know. So the Prophet salla Salim turned around and made dua for Allah to slow down and Soraka and then what happened set up as horse fell into the ground sunk into the ground, it became like quicksand, and he fell off his horse. And so I called out to the profits on assignment said yada Sue, oh Mohammed,

00:32:39--> 00:32:50

make dua that Allah get my horse and stuck and I won't follow you. So he made the odd that his horse get unstuck. This is a very funny incident. And he got unstuck and Soraka started chasing them again. Anyway, this happened a few times.

00:32:51--> 00:33:32

Finally, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam looked at Soraka. Now look where the Prophet sallallahu wasallam is right now. He is running as a fugitive from his hometown. He has no army, he has no city, he has no safety. He has no security, he has himself and abubaker who is with him? That's it. He turns around and says to Soraka, even Malik, he says, Yes, Raka how are you going to behave? How are you going to be look at you on this day? What about the day when the day comes when you are gifted the bracelets of kisara, the emperor of Persia given to you as a gift from the bounty of the Muslims. Look at this prophecy of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam at a time like this, on his

00:33:32--> 00:33:48

darkest of days, he is telling Soraka even Malik, how are you going to be on the day when we give you the bracelets of the kingdom of the king of Persia The greatest Empire the world had ever known at the time. What are you going to do when we give you his bracelets as a bounty from the Muslims?

00:33:50--> 00:34:29

Some of the Hollywood selling solok was shocked. Soraka was shocked. He was like No, no, we don't need to follow him. He's a madman. He said just stop chasing this dude. He's gone bonkers. He's lost his mind. He's sitting here telling me that we're going to get the braces of kisara just let him go. He's lost. So our Prophet sallallahu wasallam went to that cave that we know of. And he hid in that cave in Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah Who controls all living things seen and unseen. Allah commanded the spider to get away we know we know that an authentic hadith we'll leave that where it is. But Allah subhana wa tada protected them. And when they came to find him, they were right up at

00:34:29--> 00:34:38

the door of the cave. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu Allah started to have some, some fear. He said Yato Sula. If they looked down,

00:34:39--> 00:34:49

they're gonna see our feet. If they just looked down, they're gonna see us. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Yeah, boubakeur. What do you think will be the outcome of two people?

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

On the third of their companions is Allah. What do you think is gonna happen to two people, whom the third of their companions is a lagenda ad and Abu Bakar said that

00:35:00--> 00:35:42

Moment Sakina tranquility, peace descended on my heart. And then they went away and they made it to MC I mean they made it to Medina. later on during the Khalifa of Amara imminent hapa brought the Allahu Allah when the Persian Empire was overcome by the, the the military leadership of the man whom we talked about last time, the Khalid even the leader of the Allahu on the bounty from Persia was brought forward Soraka Eman Malik had become a Muslim by this time after the Fed Tomek Soraka became a Muslim as they're going through the bounty Amara sees the bracelets, the beautiful and these are like worldwide world famous bracelets that belong to kisara. He sees them in the Mountie

00:35:43--> 00:35:58

and he says someone go get me Soraka go get your doctor. So he brings Soraka to him. And he says you remember you remember when the Prophet sallallahu wasallam told you this, and he put the bracelets on set off does arms

00:35:59--> 00:36:12

as a fulfillment of the prophecy of the Prophet sallallahu sallam. You don't have to. You don't have to know the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala brothers and sisters, you just have to trust it. You just have to trust it.

00:36:13--> 00:36:35

On that dark day before the Battle of butter. Many of you know the Battle of the Battle of butter 313 of this how the against had so many against 1000s of the Meccans 313. They were so outnumbered. They were so outgunned, they were so outmanned. They were so out, weaponized,

00:36:37--> 00:37:14

before the Battle of butter, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. He had done what he could do. He had put his his his his his preparations together. He stood on the battlefield before the day of brother. And what did he do? What did he do? He stood in front of the army and he put his hands in front of his face. And he said, Oh Allah. These are all of the believers that you have on this earth. This is it. These are your believers. If we are defeated today, you will no longer be worshipped on this earth. If we go down today, then you will no longer be worshipped with the heat on this earth. This is what you got.

00:37:15--> 00:37:39

After that dua, Allah subhanho wa Taala. After that do I'll reach the seven heavens, above the Throne to the Almighty, Allah Allah Allah sent angels sent his army sent his army to fight on that battlefield. And the day of mother was one for the Muslims. You don't have to trust you don't have to know what the plan is brothers and sisters, just put in the work and trust Allah subhanho wa tion

00:37:40--> 00:37:45

on the day of the Battle of conduct. Lastly, tell you this last story.

00:37:47--> 00:37:48

And then we'll wrap it up.

00:37:49--> 00:37:52

before the Battle of the trench, over 10,000

00:37:54--> 00:38:02

people from all the tribes of Arabia had I could go on, I literally could go on all day with this but we'll just one more because I'm going to have to run for an appointment.

00:38:03--> 00:38:05

before the Battle of conduct.

00:38:06--> 00:38:22

They the 10,000 of the various tribes of Arabia had surrounded Medina surrounded it surrounded the only protection they had was they dug a trench they drugged a small trench by the by the opinion of salmonella Farsi or the Allahu Akbar.

00:38:24--> 00:38:45

So they dug a small trench and it wasn't like they surrounded in Medina with it's just a small trench. If you've ever been to Medina, and you go to Medina and you do the tour, they'll take you to a Masjid known as Masjid sada and there's little you know, places where the the Battle of conduct took place in the parking lot of Masjid sattva is where the original trench was dug for this battle.

00:38:46--> 00:38:57

There was some skirmishes that had taken place right before the Battle of hundreds there were some skirmishes like a few had gotten over a few had not gotten over, but eventually they were going to bridge this gap. There were some skirmishes and taking place.

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

But before this battle,

00:39:05--> 00:39:26

the next one of the nights the hypocrites the Munna Philippine, Allah subhanho wa Taala records it. The monastic theme came into Medina and they told the companions Allah recorded this for us, they said you should be afraid, be very afraid, be scared. Do you not see that there is an army that is gathered against you, that you cannot outnumber them that if they breach this

00:39:28--> 00:39:59

trench that you have done and enter into this city, they're going to massacre every single one of us. And Allah subhanho wa Taala says it made their Eman increase. This is the status of the believers brothers and sisters, the darker the night, the greater our faith. The darker the struggle, the greater our faith. The darker the trial, the greater our faith, the hard war, the hard the hardship, the greater our faith, Allah subhana wa Allah says it caused their faith to increase and what did they say? They responded to those when i 15 hussmann Allah when he molecule Yes, we know that trench

They didn't have to let them breach the the trench and breach the walls. Their battle was won by their trust in Allah Subhana which has been Allah when he Millfield we trust

00:41:06--> 00:41:12

and Allah and he's the best of those who protectors are finished with this one beautiful story about one of the companions

00:41:14--> 00:41:17

He was one of the leaders of the tribes of Medina you had the house and the hazaragi. Inside even more I was the leader of it went out of my mind really quick. I think he was leader of aos, if I'm not mistaken, could be wrong. Either way. He was one of the leaders of the tribes of Medina. He became a Muslim based on the Tao of Messiah, the mayor or the Allah and what Obama

00:41:59--> 00:42:30

said in my head was somebody who is beloved to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam beloved him, after the tribe of after the Battle of hunted up, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went and marched on the tribe of Benny's sobre el, who had betrayed the Muslims, they had entered into an agreement with them and be traded. So the Prophet sallallahu Sallam went to deal with them. When he surrounded them. They asked for sad even more ad to be made a

00:42:31--> 00:42:39

mediator between the Prophet sallallahu Sallam and themselves because they knew something more or they had always been friendly to them. So they call it facade anymore and

00:42:40--> 00:42:51

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam found out that sad anymore, I had been mortally wounded in some of the skirmishes that took place at the Battle of Asda. He had been mortally wounded he was dying.

00:42:53--> 00:42:54

So they brought

00:43:25--> 00:43:25

And

00:43:26--> 00:43:30

when sad even more had passed away, he died the robbed the Allahu Akbar,

00:43:31--> 00:43:50

the Prophet sallallahu wasallam started crying profusely till he wet his beard. And he said something about saddam and more ad that has never been said about any other Muslim, sat him in Morocco has a has a station in rank, unlike any other Muslim that has walked the face of this earth and in this respect,

00:43:51--> 00:44:06

He said this grave will squeeze even children Subhan Allah, He said except for the grave of sad even more on the grave of sad even more of it will squeeze him lightly and gently hug him and then let him go. And this is how much Allah soprano with an loved sad even
