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.
And things are happening all over the world.
Within the within the Muslim world, we see the things that are happening in Palestine, we see the things that are happening in Afghanistan, we see the things that are happening in Burma, we see that things that are happening with our hunger, 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 and it looks strange, and we don't know where to turn next. And things are getting darker by the day.
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 plan of the Almighty. Now I have a lot of people that reach out to me and they'll say You know what?
Want you to talk about what's going on here? Have you seen what's happening here? You've seen what's happening there.
Let me tell you something brothers and sisters. Right now we live in a world where nothing is as 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, wrote him a whole lotta analysts said.
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,
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, tik tok 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
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 they're whoever is running them, we're not going to get deep down that dark hole today. But we have to make sure we 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.
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.
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 and the son of the Prophet alayhi salatu salam, anywhere where Allah or his messenger commanded us that we have to understand our Creator. And 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
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 for them and Allah Allah, Allah might 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 wrapped around the way Allah subhanho wa Taala Jalla wa ala works in his creation. It's our brains cannot fathom it. Allah told us to trust him.
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. I have a few stories. They should give you a little bit of hope today in sha Allah hotel, a brother mentioned number the earlier
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 they plan Allah plans in the Lucha
halal marketing, 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 supposed to put trust in Allah. We're supposed to work within with our capacity as we talked about in the talk, predestination versus freewill. 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 lie 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
to trust in Allah, Allah Allah, that he has the best plan at hand. Now, I'll tell you a few stories inshallah. We're gonna go way back
Way back to the time of Bani Israel to the story of moose LSM 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.
moose la ceram was born. This is a time when fear owned was at his worst fit Olin was at his height of tyranny and oppression and fear to own had a dream. And in this dream for your own dream that one of the children of Bani Israel at the time one of the sons of Benny Israel of the time, would grow up and would
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 ad to have them slaughtered and made the streets of Egypt run red blood with the children of Bani Israel, the sons of Bani Israel.
during this time, Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah said his plan into motion,
fed only had a plan. Allah subhanho wa Taala had a plan.
So Allah Jalla wa ala, sent an angel to the mother of Moses. 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, Allah, Allah 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
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 man yell it is it I didn't even get into it is a grown 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
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. My 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 plan 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, this buck started
floating down the Nile River. And But Moses mother was also a mother. May Allah Subhana Allah bless all of our mothers, I mean,
so she sent her daughter, Moses, sister, go tell me where this box goes. Go watch this box and see where it goes. Because yes, she trusts in the plant of Allah subhanho wa Taala but she's also a mother and she needs to sleep at night. So she says go see where this box goes. So Moses 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 was to protect him from fit own right to protect them from fit on. So she puts him in this box. This box starts floating up the Nile River. Where does this box end up landing.
So Panama This just shows you the plant of Allah subhanho wa Taala this box ends up with moose inside of it ends up landing in the backyard of fear on Halloween acquitted 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. So man Allah 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 or from a federal loan, some dramatic music comes dun dun dun and then they cut the commercial break. We'll
see you on the 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 Moosa. This plan did not work. This one didn't work. Or can you imagine if technology was the way it is now and Moses mother could could take a quick you know, picture and then text it to a mother and a mother opens the phone
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 Subhan Allah, but it lands in the backyard if at all. Because we might not understand the plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala. 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 wa ala, immediately gives her love and affection for this child. So she goes to fit own. 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 them brothers, let me 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 give in early, rather than the long battle we're going to give up anyway. And it's called the super power of
persuasion. It's called the super power of persuasion. This is something that Allah subhanho wa Taala gifted our wives with the superpower of persuasion, when she wants something, to know how to get out of you look at fair on 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
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 was 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 Panama.
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 subhanho wa Taala. 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 mother
is hired and paid a royal salary in order to breastfeed her own child, whom she sent in a box to protect from federal and 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 own is not only adopted his own destruction, he's now paying for the mother of his own destruction, to breastfeed her own child and paying royal guards to keep them safe and secure.
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 with no intercession when no intermediary, Allah spoke to him directly and told him to go do your own, 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 planet of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Nobody would understand this. If you were in the middle of it, you wouldn't. It would make no sense. 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. So pan over to Allah Jalla wa ala vigilante Wally crown. This is about trusting the plan of the Almighty Allah subhanho wa Taala trusting. Let me tell you a couple of more stories.
There was a story about a man and you'll find this written by even the rajib I know Allah to Allah in His dippable Hannah, Hannah Hannah,
Hannah baliya. In his Treaty on the fifth of mm admin in Hamburg, her mother Anna and he, he talks about a man named Abu Bakar al Ansari, Abu Bakar al Ansari.
He is one of the pious predecessors of our self. He's the one of the pious predecessors of our self. He was known as the old man stan, 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 Jana
now, he was a poor man as well. He was a very poor man. And at the time
he was going around looking for some food in Mecca because he was hungry and he couldn't find anything to eat. So he was going around 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 is answered, you know, we are hungry had no food and now we got this big, you know, beautiful pro necklace. I can go sell it. I can feed myself for months. But for aboubaker Ansari,
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 America, 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 that he was offering a big reward, he was offering her 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
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, here's 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 back 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
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 seat. 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 and broke this ship into pieces and a lot of people died. But abubaker al Ansari 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
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,
I went and I will look for the people and I couldn't find them. I 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 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 Subhan
Allah, Abubakar found a job, he found a job teaching Quran. So as he started teaching the Quran, later on, they became to realize they came to realize he knew how to read and write, he was literate. 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.
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 went 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 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 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 abubaker he looked up to see her
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 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 them. He said, No, no, no, no, no, listen, listen. It's 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 Subhan Allah subhana wa they said, that 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 will be married to his daughter
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. I Brubaker 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 subhanho wa Taala 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 the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said one of the accepted Dora 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 answer 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, 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. You never fail your brothers and sisters will lie 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.
I'll tell you another story.
At the time of the old Elisa,
at the time of the Buddha alayhis salam.
There was a woman who was very poor. She was a widow, her husband had passed away.
And she survived every single day.
Every single day by knitting garments, knitting blankets, sweaters, whatever, whatever she did, she made things by hand.
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, she would buy food for her and her children for that day. This is how she lived day to day is 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 subhanho wa Taala.
One day, she was on her way to the market and a bird came and 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.
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.
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 he or 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 slum. She marches in the quarter of the woods, she marches in the court of the woods, and she asked the question, she says is Allah just or unjust is Allah just
Or is the law unjust? And so he asked her what makes you ask this question? What makes you ask this question? So she tells him his story. And as she's saying the story dude 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 in just took everything she had a bird. So as she's telling him the story, and he's thinking about it,
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.
Semin came in with bags of gold. And they put it in front of those
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 him? No, he left. But a storm came and broke the sale of our ship. We could not tie it, it broke it 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
so after making this do
so kinda 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 set up for Allah.
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 men. 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 of 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 and she made her a very wealthy woman. The plan of Allah subhanho wa Taala is immutable. It is perfect
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, let 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 plan 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 once Allah
subhana wa Taala has written it once Allah subhanho wa Taala is commanded once Allah subhanho wa Taala has 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. That's it. We trusted him subhanho wa Taala during the time of the Prophet alayhi salatu was Salam.
When he was surrounded in Mecca, when he was surrounded in Mecca, let me tell you something brothers and sisters about the plan of Allah Jalla wa ala when our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam was surrounded by enemies on all sides in Mecca in his home. What did he do? He told Ali, not the Allahu Allah. Alrighty, we're going to tell you some stories about it coming up sooner. Earlier on the alar and early admin 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 Allah was the most sweetest sleep he ever had on the face of this earth. So as earlier the Aloha and woulda took the place of the Prophet sallallahu wasallam How is he going to get out of his house this surrounded on all sides?
Allah Allah Allah inspired him to blow some some dust and recite from the poor and so he blew some dust in reciting from the pot and he walked right by them a lot put them to sleep. Allah blinded their eyes. Allah controls every single physical atom in the face.
The universe but then sisters, every single physical particle of made known universe, Allah general Allah controls that he created it. He commends it. It is under his authority, but the sisters
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 went with Soraka even Malik sarafa, even Malik sarafa ibn Malik went to chase the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and he ended up catching up to him. They saw him in the far distance. So he saw him in the far distance. And so he started catching up to him and abubaker looked behind him and and said, yo
Rasulullah Soraka is behind this one of our biggest enemies is behind this, listen to this whole story but insisted if you don't trust Allah's 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 happens so doctors horse fell into the ground sunk into the ground, it became like quicksand, and he fell off his horse. And so I'll call it out to the profits on assignment said yada Sue, oh Mohammed,
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.
Finally, the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam looked at Soraka now look where the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam 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 was 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 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?
Some Allah honey was sending 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 Gizmo 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 who controls all living things seen and unseen. Allah commanded the spider castle where 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 the door of
the cave. And Abu Bakr radi Allahu, and started to have some, some fear. He said Yato Sula. If they look down,
they're gonna see our feet. If they just look down, they're gonna see us. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Yeah, boubakeur. What do you think will be the outcome of two people?
Whom 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 at that moment, Sakina, tranquility, peace, descended on my heart. And then they went away and they made it to mech 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 military leadership of the man whom we talked about last time to call it even the leader of the Allah who won. The Bounty from Persia was brought forward. Soraka Ibn Malik had become a Muslim by this time after the fight Tomek Soraka became a
Muslim, as they're going through the bounty Amara sees the bracelets, the beautiful and these are like worldwide world and famous bracelets, they belong to kisara he sees them in the bounty. And he says someone go get me Soraka go get set off. So he brings Soraka to him. And he says, you remember, you remember when the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told you this, and he put the bracelets on set out as arms
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.
On that dark day before the Battle of butter. Many of you know the Battle of the Battle of butter 300
In 13 of this, how the against how 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.
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 butter. 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 their heat on this earth. This is what you got.
And after that, da Allah subhana wa to Anna after that da reached the seven heavens, above the Throne, to the Almighty, Allah Jalla wa 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
on the day of the Battle of conduct. Lastly, take this last story.
And then we'll wrap it up.
before the Battle of the trench, over 10,000
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.
before the Battle of luck,
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.
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, and the parking lot of Masjid sattva is where the original trench was dug for this battle.
There were some skirmishes that had taken place right before the Battle of 100. 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 was some skirmishes and taking place.
But before this battle,
the next one of the nights, the hypocrites the manava clean Allah subhanho wa Taala records it the money Philippine came into Medina and they told the companions Allah record 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
trench that you have done an intro into the city, they're gonna 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 the molecule Yes, we know that trench is not sufficient. Yes, we know our numbers aren't sufficient. Yes, we know that nothing is
But we know that Allah subhanho wa Taala is sufficient. We know our Lord is sufficient. We know our rub. Luigi Lally well, Ekrem is sufficient husband Allah when email I kill, we trusted him. So that night they went to sleep. That night, they went to sleep.
And then Allah subhana wa Allah sent his army. He sent his army that we don't understand. He sent the wind. He sent the sand. He sent the blowing rocks, he sent the hurricane force winds and all of it blew all of the tribes of Arabia Oh, he blew them away they left kept the city of Medina safe and secure and tranquil, covered and protected. And Allah routed the armies of Canuck. And when they woke up in the morning, they found nobody left ally again, granted in the victory, they didn't even have to put up a fight. 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 the milk deal we
trust and Allah and he's the best of those who protectors. I'll finish with this one beautiful story about one of the companions
about the Battle of condom. There was a companion name,
side even more iron
sad even more ad sad even more if one of the great men of this ummah sad even more ad who became Muslim. He was one of the leaders of the tribes of of Medina. 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 real 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 we're on ba
said in my head was somebody who is beloved to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam beloved him, after the tribe of after the Battle of hanoch, the Prophet sallallahu wasallam went and marched on the tribe of Benny Surah Al, 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 had to be made a
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 even more on
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam found out they're sad anymore, I had been mortally wounded in some of the skirmishes that took place at the Battle of ask them. He had been mortally wounded, he was dying.
So they brought
sat in the wide on a on a board they brought him you know, on a on a on a plank, laying down down
and sat in my dad gave his ruling that they had betrayed their oath. Therefore, they were to be defeated. So they didn't it didn't go the way they wanted. Then sided and more ad was on his deathbed. And the Prophet sallallahu wasallam came to his deathbed and came to a side of sad even more than
when sad Eben had passed away, he died radi Allahu Akbar.
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. Sad him and Mariah has a has a station in rank, unlike any other Muslim that is or walk the face of this earth and in this respect,
the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, Today the throne of Allah shook. Today the throne of Allah shook at the death of Sodom and more if because Allah subhanho wa Taala Anna, loved sad in
the throne of Allah shook today because the death of sad in 100, the Allahu and these are the men and women whom we follow brothers and sisters. And then he said about saddam and more. He said that the grave squeezes every single soul that enters in every single soul that enters the grave believer or non believer, Allah causes that grave to squeeze them and welcome them back to the dirt that they were created from. 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 our last panel with and loved sad minimal.
So as we wrap up brothers and sisters, you don't have to know what Allah's plan is he is he does not tell us our his plan, how it works, where it's going to go, what it's going to be, but we have to trust him. Allah Allah Allah says in Allah let the believers place their trust. So we trust him. Brothers and sisters, the world is crazy dark right now. It might get darker, it might get darker it's gonna get worse. The Prophet sallallahu Sallam said that every generation after him was be succeeding Lee worse until the Day of Judgment fell upon the worst people who had ever walked the face of this earth. So it's probably going to get worse. But we have to trust in Allah subhanho wa
Taala that he has a supreme plan for those who believe he has a supreme plan for those who believe and we trust in that plan. We trust in our plan. We do what we can and what we have the power to do. And the rest we leave it to Allah, what you can control, work at it, try to do it to the best of your ability, everything that is outside of your control, let it go and leave it to Allah. Let it go and leave it to Allah subhanho wa Taala and try to make ourselves right but the one who created us, try to make ourselves right with the one who created us right with the people around us. do the right things. Try to make the right plans, put the right things into action, trust in Allah on their
success or their failure and leave it to Allah. Allah will never disappoint those who believe. Allah has never disappointed anyone who has ever put their trust in Him. Allah has never, ever, ever, ever disappointed anyone who has put their trust
In Him, so put your trust in Him Subhana without our brothers and sisters, and May Allah grant us the best of this life. May Allah grant us the best of the next life. May Allah grant us an easy death. May Allah Subhana Allah grant us a good death. May Allah subhanho wa Taala grant us a wide expanse of our graves.
