Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Rasulillah Salam aleikum, wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My dear sisters and brothers, so Masha roboticle I'm going to assume the majority of you here are or two fans and you want to know the qualities that really make him successful, and delay his action actually a great series Masha roboticle, I enjoyed it with my family and was definitely great work down. And I think that thing that really inspired me about it was that it was based on a true story. And how much of it was true or not, Allah knows best but Subhanallah from the series, he has a lot of great qualities that we can talk about Inshallah, this video series is only going to be about

00:00:43--> 00:01:23

five amazing qualities that he had and that could make us successful like human Shala if you apply these qualities, so let's get started. The first and most important quality that made or two successful was his connection to Allah is Allah, Masha, Allah Tabarak Allah, He knew his Lord, he knew his purpose in life. You see, the problem with us today is that a lot of us don't really know who Allah is, or gel is, we know that he's our Lord. But we don't really have a connection with him. And if you notice something with Arturo is like, every time it looked like he was about to get, you know, caught and he was about to not make it, Allah is to help them from one way or another, Allah

00:01:23--> 00:01:35

subhanaw taala was always there with them and helping him. He was, you know, looking out for him. So what made that possible? Now, a lot of you may be thinking, well, can this really happen? I mean, or is it just a TV show?

00:01:36--> 00:02:12

I mean, is this possible in real life? You know, my dear sisters and brothers, had I not been studying Islamic studies for the last 13 years, and I just watched this TV show, I would have thought it was only to be sure in reality, something like this probably could have never taken place. I would have laughed at anyone who said otherwise. But the truth is, my dear sisters and brothers, that this can really happen. There's so many examples in the life of the prophet Sallallahu sallam, and the messengers of Allah before him met lot, peace and blessings be upon all of them, as well as in the life of the Sahaba now Allah be pleased with them, and the righteous who

00:02:12--> 00:02:55

came after them. So yes, there is hope for you and me. hamdulillah wouldn't it be amazing, where we always felt safe because we knew Allah smart Allah, the Lord of mankind, and everything else, you know, that was happening, we knew there was a reason that purpose and that we accepted it. And we knew that Eliza would support us Inshallah, so long as we were on his path. What an amazing feeling that would be and how confident would be would we be in our relationship with the Lord of the Worlds? From what I read of the righteous? They say this is a surreal feeling. Subhan Allah, for those who have this connection have their Dwars answered? And who felt safe and content with Allah

00:02:55--> 00:03:41

azza wa jal. So how is this possible? So we do know that this amazing relationship is possible. And our bullheaded Radi Allahu Anhu said that the Prophet sallallahu sallam said, Allah Almighty and sublime, he he said, whoever shows amnesty to someone devoted to me, I shall be a war with him. My servant does not near to me with anything more loved by me than the religious duties that I have enjoined upon him. And my servant continues to draw near to me with super arbitrary works, so that I shall love him. And when I love him, I'm his hearing, which with, with which he hears his seeing, with which he sees his hands with which he strikes and his foot with which he walks, or he to ask

00:03:41--> 00:03:59

something of me, I would surely give it to him. And were he to ask me for refuge, I will surely granted to him. I do not hesitate about anything as much as I hesitate about seizing the soul of my faithful servant, as he hates debt, and I hate hurting him. And this can be found in the Book of body.

00:04:00--> 00:04:38

How powerful are these words? I remember reading it the first time and thinking How amazing would this be? People usually do anything if the king or the President invited them to their palace, pupil will be over the moon if they met their favorite sports stars or richest person in the world. However, the majority of people don't even know this hadith could see. And that real power comes from being deeply connected to Allah. He is the king of the king. He is the one who gives to whom He wants wealth and health and success in sports and business or anything else. And often we think if we got to meet the people that Allah has put in these high positions, we too will be in high

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

positions. But remember, or to rule, he didn't care about position, money or high level of people. He only cared for those who are just and righteous and on the right path. Now let's look at our sauce today. The majority of us take money that doesn't belong to us. We cheat others if we can get away with it. We spit on the freeway if we know that there's no police to give us a chance.

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

Only when we're being watched or we feel embarrassed in front of others do we do the right thing? This was not how Arturo was. He did the right thing at all times because of his connection to Allah subhanaw taala. And authority Abu Abbas Abdullah ibn Abbas, may Allah be pleased with them sad. One day I was behind the Prophet sallallahu wasallam writing on the same mount, and he said, Oh young man, I shall teach you some words of advice. Be mindful of Allah and Allah will protect you. Be mindful of Allah and you will find him in front of you. And if you ask that, ask Allah alone. And if you seek help, then seek help from Allah alone. And know that if the nations were to gather together

00:05:38--> 00:06:19

to benefit you with anything, they would not benefit you except with what Allah has already prescribed for you. And if they were to gather together to harm you with anything, they will not harm you except with what Allah had already prescribed against you. The pens have been lifted, and the pages have dried. And this is related in the book of Permian. I will end with a story of when Arthur was captured by neon and season two, and everyone thought he was dead. And it looked as if he had been lost because of how they portrayed it. Yet he still had hope in Allah azza wa jal, and he did everything that he could to free himself. While he was tortured and in pain, he never gave up on

00:06:19--> 00:06:46

surviving. He never gave up on a lobbying by his side to help him he had full trust in his Lord, and he took action. The Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam said, strive for what benefits you in rely on God and do not give up. If something befalls you do not say if I had only done such and such. Instead say it is as God has decreed, and he does what he pleases. And this can be found in the Book of masa.

00:06:48--> 00:07:29

When the prophets Allah, Allah, Allah some told us strive for what benefits you he saw Allah, Allah some was encouraging us to go after positive opportunities that came our way. When he added and rely on God, he SallAllahu lism was telling us that success will be from Allah alone. So ask him for help. He some aloneness and then continued by saying and do not give up when we have a love our site and we're working towards our goals that are Hallel and good for us and our families, that we mustn't give up in Sharla. And finally, when the Prophet SAW Lavalas statement ended was saying, if something befalls you do not say, if I had only done such and such, instead say it is as God

00:07:29--> 00:08:08

decreed, and he does what he pleases. And this can be found in the Book of Muslim faith is not blind. Nor is that a form of resignation and a denial of a great human potential. It does not mean we should spend our time laminating in the ruins of the past and reject change. Instead, my dear sisters and brothers, faith is our certainty that good is wherever Allah places it, and that every day you bring forth a new dream, A New Hope, a new success. And you see this over and over and over in the series of Ordoro. So many tests and trials would come to them and they would have hope and faith and they will continue keep walking up the ladder and keep doing what they needed to do

00:08:08--> 00:08:40

mashallah, Monica, the prophets Allah Allah has some also said, when you beseech Allah, you should be certain that you will answer and this can be found the book of Tirmidhi. When you ask Allah be certain that he will answer you have no doubt about that. What this has meaning to us is that when we call on our lives, our job was your full trust, full trust. Right now I will ask you, do you fully believe when you ask ALLAH that he's going to answer you fully believe or you like, maybe he'll answer maybe you won't.

00:08:42--> 00:09:25

Allah says in the Quran and SAP chapter number 40 is number 16 is call upon Me I will answer you. And Allah says, Who is it that answers the one in needs when he calls out in chapter number 29 is SUTA 62. And Allah says, it will my servant asked about me tell them I am mere I answered the supplications of those who beseech me and this can be done as brutal Bukhara i 186. So the lesson for all of us from this is to call on Allah, and to fully trust him as a prophet muhammad sallallahu wasallam trusted him as a Sahaba trusted Allah His origin, as the righteous after them trusted him. And to remember, this is what we learned from Arturo series that will have the law he applied it in

00:09:25--> 00:10:00

his life, that no matter what happened to him, he will always have full trust that wherever Allah did was best for him, I there was going to be shahada and he was going to die in the way of Allah or he was going to be successful and keep striving in the way of Allah and to bring goodness success and justice on the lands and he accepted whatever Allah is or Joe had decreed for him. So Subhan Allah my dear sisters and brothers, I hope that this quality of having full trust in Allah azza wa jal, and be connected to him is one that we can apply in our lives and inshallah

00:10:00--> 00:10:08

Allah see the fruits of it does not go Haydn inshallah I will see you on video number two as Salaam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh
