A Good Ending – Abdulbary Yahya (Very Emotional & Motivational Story) – Subtitled

AbdulBary Yahya My father, he was shot in front of the masjid. And it was after Isha prayer. We used to lived close to the masjid, next to the masjid. He used to always clean the masjid, the bathroom and so forth. People didn’t really know actually clean until after he passed away, then the bathroom started to smell, because nobody really took care of that. And he never clean the bathroom or anything like that when people were there.

Before he would go to work he would stop in the masjid, He would clean everything up then go, he would always look for the times that people would not see him. So nobody knew that he was doing any of these things, but he would always do that. He came out and I was in the house. And I heard a gun shot, but I didn’t think it was a gun shot because we have independence day in July. People always have fireworks and this was like a few days afterwards, and I’m thinking it’s just that somebody’s just burning their left over MAD or something like that, you know these fireworks. and so I hear my father calling me, “AbdulBary, AbdulBary, somebody shot me!” So I went to him, and when he saw my face he said, “Ash hadu an laa ilaaha illa Allah, wa ash hadu anna muhammad rasuulullah.” And then I told him when I heard that, I said, “Father, I don’t care who talks to you from now on, don’t say a single word.

Just in your heart. You’ve done a lot of good.” “And repent to Allah, ask Allah for forgiveness and ask for His mercy, but don’t say a single word after this.” And he never said anything after that, the ambulance and everything came…. And the police officer, the detective, started coming around asking me. He’s asking me about what was happening in… was the masjid open… And I was just walking around telling him about what was happened, the area of the masjid. And so… And I was just speaking to him normally, just what ever would… I was a little bit saddened but I wasn’t like yelling or anything like that.

Just calm and speaking to him normal, just like how anyone would speak to a person, not during that situation, but… After, in the morning, the detective spoke to some of the other people. He spoke to one of my friends, so the detective he said, “You know that in all the homicides and murders I’ve seen in my life, I’ve never seen somebody like him.” “It’s amazing!” So he told me, “You’ve made a great da’wah.” I said, “What? I didn’t speak, I didn’t say anything about Islam.” He said, “You’ve made great da’wah.” The detective came to me and he said, “In all my days, and I’ve witness thousands or hundreds or hundreds of crime scene.” “I’ve never seen somebody, especially related to somebody who has just murdered, like him.” “So how? I even thought that he did it!” That’s the detective. “I said that’s not humanly possible.” “It’s not humanly possible for somebody be in that state.” “You know most people are going crazy.” And so I told him, I said, “Let me tell you. “I was sad about what was happening, but my father, got something that I want, and I don’t even know that I’ll have that, his last words were, “Laa ilaaha illa Allah.” And the Prophet shallallahu alaihi wa sallam said, “Man kaana aakhiru kalaamihi laa ilaaha illa Allah, dakholal jannah.” “Whose ever last word is laa ilaaha illa Allah will enter paradise.” “I don’t know on the day that I’d die that I will be able to say that.” “I’m just hoping that I will be.” “‘Aisha was asked, ;What supplication, did the Prophet shallallahu alaihi wa sallam say the most?'” And she said – and he is the Messenger of Allah – not like anyone of us, And the dua that he asked more than anything else, “Ya muqallibal quluub, O Allah the one who changes hearts, tsabbit qalbi ‘ala diiinik, make my heart firm in your religion.” “Make my heart firm in your obedience.” And that was the dua that the Prophet shallallahu alaihi wa sallam asked more than anything else.

Quitting Job For Jum’ah – INSPIRING REAL STORY OF BROTHER YUSHA EVANS

Yusha Evans Just to give you a little personal experience, I don’t like to put my personal stories in, but just to let you know it works. I’ve tried it many times. I had a job, when I first moved to Florida, was a new Muslim, had left South Carolina, and was trying to gain knowledge of my deen. And the only job I could take was a crazy construction job in Florida, in the summertime, 90 degrees (F) outside man, 95 degrees (F) with the humidity, like, 87%. Outside dying man. I’m not made for this type of stuff, but I was doing it, because this is the only job I can find, and I know that Allah will take care of me. I went on Friday, and told my boss, “Look, I gotta go to Jumma. I gotta go. I’m gonna take a long lunch today, but I’ll stay late.” He was like, “Nah, man.

There’s no leaving. You don’t leave this worksite.” I’m like, “Look, this is my religious obligation. I have to go to Jumma on Friday.” He was like, “Look, if you leave the job, then you’re fired.” I said, “Well, I’ll see you in two weeks to get my check.” I’m out, and I left. I just left. And I said to myself, “Hasbunallah wa ni’mal wakil.” Allah is sufficient for me, man. I don’t need, no, I’m not going to violate my deen because I think I need something from the dunya. So I left, went to Jumma. Not knowing how I’m going to get another job. Not knowing how I’m going to take care of myself. I went to Jum’ah. And I was leaving Jumma, and I make the du’a, one of ones that Rasul said it is never unheard from Allah , I made one of those.

...

So, “Ya Allah, my welfare is in your hands.” I walked outside of Jumma. And there was a brother who had just come from Palestine, a Syaikh. One of the most knowledgeable brothers I’ve ever met in my entire existence. And he owned a pizza shop in Al-Quds, in Jerusalem. And he came here to open up a pizza shop, and establish his family here because of the fitna in Jerusalem at the time.

And he came up to me asked, what he said, “Brother Yusha, do you have a job right now?” I said, “Actually no. I just quit today.” He said, “Well, I need somebody to work for me.” And he hired me on the spot, and he gave me double what I was making at the construction job. And this is just one instance about a thousand that I could give you, of how when you put your trust in Allah , he never ever lets you down. Because if He let me down, I wouldn’t be able to do what I’m doing right now. I abandoned 3-4 martial arts school I had running in full time in Florida, going well off, had more of the dunya than I know what to do with, and left it, knowing what Allah …

Had for me to do, this was for me to do. I knew this was my calling. I needed to tell these people about Islam in this country that I’m from. And Allah has never had me to worry about anything, ever. Alhamdulillahi Rabbil ‘Alamiin. When we begin the think like this, that we want to please Allah more than anything else, then Allah will look at us, and begin to love us again.

He’ll begin to love us again. And when He begins to love us again, our Rasul said that the Muslim does good actions so much, until Allah loves him. And then when Allah loves him, He would tell the angels nearest to Him, “I love so and so, so you love them.” And those angels will communicate that down to all of creation until the entire creation begin to love this person. This what our Rasul had. This is what the Sahaba had. And this is why the whole world was given to them. Because the creation loved them, because even the non-Muslims whose countries they conquered loved them so much, that when they decided to leave and try to hand the governorship back over to the people, that people would beg them to stay, and adopt the deen of their conquerors in mass, until the entire world was willingly under laa ilaa ha illalah muhammad rasulullah.

...

Because these Muslims put their priorities in place. Allah came first, everything else came second. My job came second, the dunya comes second, the family comes second, your children come second. .
